Young Living Wellness Program! What is this?

YLWellness_BannerWe have developed a series of informational and how-to videos that focus on a body system and a lifestyle change for each month. They are fantastic!

Follow along to gain one of the most important skills for being (and staying) well — self-awareness. How do you know if you’re well? How do you know if you’re getting better? or worse? Are you waiting on someone else to tell you? You don’t have to — you CAN know. These are the tools that Peter used on his wellness journey — detoxing from chemo and the effects of it in his body.

Join us on a year-long journey, as we implement a wellness strategy that encompasses lifestyle changes, diet adjustments (or overhaul), expert advice on supplementation and use of essential oils, and daily action steps in video format.

Every month there will be a “What to Order” video installment for your Young Living Essential Rewards order. It will include the supplement program for the body system of the month and supplies to help make the environmental lifestyle change. We’re taking it in increments so that by the end of the year, we’ve learned about and gotten in touch with every system of the body AND most areas of lifestyle.

 

 

Breathing is Essential for Life

Breathing is very important for health and wellness because it is essential for life.  The body starts to die in minutes without oxygen.  But, in less extreme and less noticeable ways, the tissue becomes unhealthy and stressed when there is reduced oxygen.  Reduced oxygen or blood flow to an organ eventually leads to dysfunction or disease.  On the positive side, if we supply plenty of oxygen to tissue, we can reverse consequences of stress and decay.

Think of it this way:  if I have reduced breath volume (shallow breathing) because of poor posture, shoulder tension, or stress; then my body will slowly decline – I might even expect this process and call it “aging” or “normal” degeneration.  But, if I increase my breath by even 10-20%, the health benefits will be profound.

How can I increase breath?  Make improvements in these three key areas:  practice good posture habits*, learn to manage stress, and practice breathing!

In “Introduction to Four Essentials for Life,” I focus mainly on breathing and give practical  training on how to engage in conscious breathing to enhance health.  Sure, you could figure this out on your own, but why not learn from someone who has been doing this for nearly 20 years.  Listen now to “Introduction to Four Essentials for Life” to minimize your learning curve and maximize your wellness.

Some Thoughts About Movement

We hear that we must move our bodies in order to be healthy.  Does that mean any movement?  Are some movements better than others?  Are exercise and movement the same thing?  Let’s explore some of these questions.

Movement is required for many body functions to occur.  Some functions require specific muscle contractions.  For example, engaging the diaphragm and large muscles in the legs pumps the lymphatic system which is needed to flush toxins out of tissue.  Other body movements provide support for vital functions, such as core support to help move the bowels and keep the digestive tube from collapsing.  In addition, movement of a joint is required for the joint to stay healthy and lubricated.

But, not all movement is healthy!  If I bend or bear weight on a joint that is misaligned it can create stress and inflammation and eventually cause damage that limits function.  Movements where part of my body is not supported can create compression and sheer forces placing joints or organs at risk.  So, learning how to keep the body properly aligned when we move becomes critically important if we want long term joint health and maximum wellness.

If I do exercise at a gym on machines or with a trainer, does that ensure proper alignment and body usage?  Unfortunately not.  Machines are built symmetrically, while we are not symmetrical. (We have a liver on one side, a heart on the other, we have right or left side dominance, just to mention a few asymmetries.)  Also, we have injury and usage patterns unique to our own history.  Unless my trainer is a Certified Aston-Patterning® Practitioner, it is unlikely that he or she will be able to troubleshoot my particular usage pattern for that particular movement, machine, or exercise.  This does not mean I should give up my exercise program or my trainer; I just have to make sure I am keeping my movements in the healthy range.  If an exercise is painful to a joint, it usually means I am causing damage.  So we need to be very careful with the ‘no pain, no gain’ philosophy (but that’s a whole blog post by itself).

I do Yoga so I am assured proper alignment and body usage, right?  Again, not necessarily.  One position may be OK for you but very hard on my body due to my particular tension and injury patterns.  With training, I can learn how to move my body in such a way that honors my particular asymmetries.  Unfortunately, most movement systems that have a particular target form will emphasize the form rather than the reason that form is useful.  For example, bending to touch my toes while standing can be used to stretch the hamstrings; but, if I initiate that movement from my head or chest instead of from the psoas muscle I will create a very different stretch.  The form may look the same but the results are not.  So, with movement programs that have specific forms, I will get more benefit and less injury if I find out what I am trying to accomplish with each form.  I can then make adjustments according to my body limitations and patterns.

So, in order to get the maximum benefit from movement or exercise, I need to have familiarity and skill with how to use my body properly.   Developing this skill requires movement training.
