Last week the Great NEWS blog post was devoted to EFT Tapping Benefits and this week we will discuss Principles for Perfect Health.

Right away some people may think that perfect health is highly unlikely or maybe even impossible to attain.

Before you allow yourself to think that way you may want to remember a famous saying by Henry Ford “Whether you think you can or you can’t you are right”.

With and open mind and willing attitude you will soon discover some simple Principles for Perfect Health.

As the New Year begins many people are thinking they want to feel better, have more energy and shed a few pounds. Others are worried about the need to reduce their blood pressure or blood sugar and many need to do both. For most people the idea of perfect health seems as unlikely and unreal as mission impossible. When you put your doubts and negative thinking aside long enough you will learn some new and exciting ideas to help move away from stress and sickness and move towards perfect health and peak performance.

BTW: Do you need a reminder to finish your 2012 Vision Board or are you committed and congruent about being all you can be in 2012? Congratulations are due to the successful super stars that created one. Coaching and encouragement are available for persistence to the more slowly successful students that have not finished yet and soon will. Remember vision boards are considered very beneficial by many personal development experts.

Health Questions to Consider

To begin focusing our attention and energy on principles for perfect health it is important to consider a few simple questions first:

  • What is the definition of Perfect Health?
  • Who is most likely to enjoy perfect health?
  • Why are some cultures more likely to experience perfect health?
  • How can I change my behaviors and habits to create perfect health?
  • Where can I learn more about Principles for Perfect Health?
  • When will I begin to see benefits?
  • Perfect health has the following key benchmarks:
  • Feeling happy, healthy and in harmony consistently
  • Being energized, enthusiastic and excited each day
  • Feeling healthy each day of the year with no significant: colds, flu, virus, headaches, ear infections or sick days and free of disease which could cause you to be unable to function normally

  • Experience normal bowel movements without constipation issues.
  • Enjoying normal brain function and memory
  • Healthy looking hair, nails and skin.
  • Energy, power and endurance to deal with a wide variety of emotional, mental and physical demands that may arise during the day

Sounds like a bit of a stretch for most folks for sure. Before you think this is not possible then think again. Many individuals around the world experience amazing health and vitality. They are even researching various cultures to find the Blue Zones for health and longevity.

The Blue Zones

Numerous Blue Zones have been identified where cultures and individuals are most likely to live healthy, long and productive lives. Due to their active lifestyle, empowering beliefs, reduced emotional stress and supportive community they live a simple yet satisfying life.

Nutrient dense and whole food nutrition plays a major role in maintaining and sustaining a healthy and long life. They are very mentally, physically and socially active in the community. Often they are located in more remote and rural areas where they shy away from the materialized, mechanized and modernized way of life.

The majority of their foods are locally grown and organically raised. They eat a fairly wide range of what ever foods are common to their area and cultural traditions.

The foods include: beans, berries, eggs, fish, fruits, green leafy plants, herbs, legumes, meats, nuts, roots, seeds, sea veggies or blue green algae, spices, vegetables and whole grains. Cultured or fermented foods are also commonly included in their meals.

Eating Green Means Eat Your Locally Grown VeggiesThey come from areas that have abundant sunshine, clean water, fertile soil, fresh air and minimal toxins in the environment. They eat right, enjoy life, work hard and are mentally and physically active. The family and community plays a big role in their life and the seniors are considered valuable leaders, resources and role models for others to learn from.

Due to these simple lifestyle choices and cultural shifts they are much more likely to be free of debilitating disease, disabilities and sickness. Some of the most noted Blue Zones include: Sardinia, Nicoya Costa Rica, Vilcabamba Ecuador, Okinawa, Loma Linda CA, Georgia (country in Eastern Europe), Hunza in Pakistan and various parts of Asia.

Anyone with the desire, determination and drive can be emotionally, mentally and physically healthy for life. Energy, fitness, health and vitality result from lifestyle choices and habits each day.

    Eggs – Raw or cooked. Are they just as healthy cooked? If so how do you cook them?

    Cow Cheese vs Goat Cheese which is better or at all?

    Do you have any Gluten Free resource/guides?

    What about chicken?

    Hi Brannon

    Thanks for asking.
    Organic free range eggs can be an excellent source of nutrition and protein as long as a person is not allergic to them. One of the best ways to cook them is poaching on a low temperature or you can do a light scramble. Avoid frying at high temperatures. High heat can cause many proteins to breakdown and destroys valuable nutrient content. I consume raw eggs in a protein shake.

    Milk is a subject with lots of different perspectives. I feel goat cheese is a better choice. Feta cheese is easy to find from both goats and sheep. I also like raw goats milk. Goats and sheep are typically raised on grass in a pasture whereas most dairy cattle are raised in more confined feedlots on commercial feed. There is a risk the cows may be fed GMO grains or GMO alfalfa. Cows usually end up with a lot of antibiotics in their feed and often times growth hormones. They are often crowded and mistreated during the process. Dairy cows are over milked and have a very short life and usually end up as cheap hamburger meat. The majority of the worlds population is lactose intolerant to some degree. Raw organic grass fed milk may be fine but often hard to find. I also use a cold processed organic whey protein powder.

    Gluten is another complicated topic. Grains like wheat, oats, rye and barley as well as the products made from them like bread, cakes, cereal, cookies, flour, pasta, pancakes and more have gluten. Gluten is a complex protein. Grains also have anti-digestive enzymes which are a natural defense to help protect the grains. To help neutralize the gluten and enzymes you can sprout it or ferment it (sour dough bread). Unfortunately people are consuming too many highly processed wheat products these days and their digestive systems are not functioning well. There is an overabundance of low quality wheat products flooding the market. I strongly recommend for people to eliminate most of the highly processed white flour products. Their are many other choices such as amaranth, black rice, cargo rice, chia, millet, quiona, teff and wild rice. I enjoy dark sourdough rye bread made in Germany the old fashion way and shipped to the US. You can also turn oatmeal into old fashioned porridge by soaking it in water for 2 days with a little sourdough starter culture like they did in the past. Most wheat products should be avoided.

    As long as the chicken is free range and organic it can be considered as another source of protein. An advantage of eggs is that the chicken can continue laying them and be a renewable resource.

    Other choices are free range buffalo, deer, goat, rabbits and sheep.

    I also believe that anchovies, herring, mackerel, sardines, squid and wild salmon are good sea food choices.
