In this episode of the Highway to Health Show, we spoke about achieving optimal health, what he calls 'The Essence of Wellness', the relationship between our gut and our brains and all the wonders of silver as a healing tool.
The ESSENCE of Wellness:
[00:03:29] What are the top misconceptions that traditional health care is missing? Why are we so far from health today?
[00:04:00] One of the biggest obstacles to wellness is that we don't pick the tools that help ourselves heal ourselves.
[00:05:00] Health is an active pursuit. It's not just the absence of disease but it's something that we have to actively be pursuing.
[00:05:32] The word essence it literally means the most important part of something. So the essence of wellness would be the most important part of wellness. Eat, Sleep, Supplement, Exercise, Neutralize toxins, Clean water, and Eliminate stress; when you put the essence of wellness in your control you start to realize that this is not just a good commonsense idea. It's actually common sense medicine.
[00:06:37] Different types of exercise elicit a different immune responses on natural killer cells and other important immune cells in the body. And what happened was with exercise alone we would get an immune system increase of about 37 percent. But when we combined it with certain herbal supplements we'd get 255 percent. Then when we include it sleep we'd again get a higher increase. when you eat, and sleep, and exercise, and do all of these components of the essence of wellness each one builds like compounding interest in the bank.
[00:07:41] the essence of wellness are things that are within our control.
[00:07:54] There is no question about whether we can control how we sleep, the quality of our sleep, the time that we spend in bed. There is no question about whether we can control what we eat, how to avoid certain toxins.
[00:08:25] Some patients that never, ever should have gotten well carry such a great attitude and such a willingness to work with their body that they get well even when the doctors are scratching their heads going "we don't know why".
