“When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.” Herophilus


If we want to maximise our energy, vitality, and health, we must start by examining our current beliefs first.
We are going to figure out what is our understanding of health, where is it coming from, how is it serving us and what immediate steps we can take to better it.

Let’s start by asking the following questions:

  What is health? What does it mean to me and my family?

(Take a few seconds to think about it and write down the answers.)

Three definitions of health according to:

  •  Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine: Health is the result of individual responsibility – choosing healthy over non-healthy.
  •  Nutrition and Diet Therapy: Optimal human fulfilment and productivity – quality of life.
  •  World Health Organization: Health is a state of complete physical, mental, or social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.


        What kind of beliefs do I have about health and are they really serving me?

Think about the origin of the beliefs you have. Most of the times we have adopted beliefs unconsciously and have developed them into existence without checking the source of information on our part. Your current health condition and well-being should serve as a mirror of the authenticity of your beliefs.


 If I expand my options of information to make new choices and let go of my current beliefs what benefits and transformation will I be able to experience?

Think about the following:

  • Three of the most limiting beliefs you’ve had about your health in the past and what did they lead to.
  • Three of the most empowering beliefs you have about your health and how are they helping you.
  • Three areas you can improve immediately just by changing your habits.


        What is energy and where does it come from? 

Take time to think about.

Energy is the vital force, the strength and vitality required for sustained physical and mental activity.

I have been getting many different answers about the source of our energy and it is actually very simple. The energy comes from our cells. Our body is made up of over 37 trillion cells. The number of cells we lose per minute is roughly about 96 million. Fortunately, in that same minute, about 96 million divided, replacing those that died.  The length of a cell’s life can vary.

 What do cells need to survive?

  • Oxygen – the source of all energy in the body, which drives the metabolic processes in the body.
  • Water – the most abundant substance in the body, used by the cells for the breakdown of substances.
  • Nutrients –  carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins, minerals.
  • Ability to eliminate its own waste – elimination of toxins from the body through the lymphatic system.

In the next articles, we will be discussing separately each one of these components.
