The Importance of Self Care
Most of us know that proper nutrition is important to maintain Health, but we often don’t know what is optimal. Our world, including our food, water, and air has been inundated with man-made chemicals. Although the body can mitigate a certain amount of chemical overload, it can be slowly overwhelmed until it may no longer be able to handle the load. That’s when things begin to break down; we lose energy, begin to feel tired all the time, and ultimately can become ill.
Symptoms like achiness and pain are the body’s way of trying to get our attention; to let us know that we need to take action – more rest; less toxic substances; better nutrition; etc.
Often though, because our lives are busy, we hope it will go away and we take something to ease the pain or give us more energy.
Squelching the symptoms is the same as seeing the warning lights on your dashboard and then letting your car run out of oil. It will keep going for a while, but let it go too long and you have real issues.
If your car breaks down, it will cost you, but it can probably be fixed. If your body breaks down, it’s harder to fix and spare parts are not often available. Please take good care of You!
