I hope you’ve been enjoying your adventures in Self-Care Summer Camp and playing with some of the suggestions (links to all the Self-Care Summer Camp messages are at the end of this message in case you missed one). Health coaching has more advice!
You might be wondering why I’m so passionate about keeping your cool in the heat of summer. Here’s the bottom line: excess heat “accumulated” in your system is a primary cause of Autoimmune conditions and, for that matter, all inflammatory process.
I’ve been long familiar with the Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine views on this. I used guidelines for health coaching from these sciences to make habit modifications that reduced heat in my system and HEALED my body from Hashimoto’s Disease, an autoimmune condition affecting the thyroid.
Lately, I’ve been studying the functional medicine approach to treating autoimmune conditions, and I’ve found that it parallels Ayurveda almost exactly (with some additions from modern medicine). In fact, two of the main components of the Functional Medicine approach are:
- Lifestyle modification (including stress reduction through meditation, yoga, and proper sleep)
- Nutritional modification (including plant based diet and detoxification).
That’s why I am VERY excited about the next round of Pure Health Habits health coaching, which commences July 10. The Pure Health Habits address lifestyle and nutrition in the same way functional medicine does. Out of the ten habits we work on:
- Three habits address nutrition and detoxification;
- Two habits help you get quality sleep;
- One is for exercise; and
- The rest will help you with stress reduction and immune function.
Your results are amplified in community with an incredibly supportive group of like-minded people who have the same desired outcome as you: to rediscover vibrant health, stress-less living, and unlimited energy potential.
I’m accepting just five new members in our July 10th group.
If you are dealing with an autoimmune condition or think you might be on the cusp with symptoms like chronic pain, inflammation, skin issues, or mood fluctuations, pick up the phone and call me for a free discovery session. Or you can book online. It’s that simple.
Let’s talk soon,
