Holistic Lifestyle

purple-lotusInspiration

My blog is to provide the research information I gathered on my healing journey so that you can take from it what you need/want and use it for your own soul search and healing journey. My blog also chronicles my healing path and my transition from my old self into my new self. In finding my authentic self I realized that a holistic lifestyle is what I have been searching for in my life up till now. I feel at peace and calm which makes me happy and thrilled to have reached this place….finally.

Before a holistic lifestyle

Living the way I was before I became so sick was not working for me in any way. I wasn’t eating foods that were beneficial for my body, I was not taking time for myself, I was a giver and gave more than I had to give to many people with nothing in return. They continually sucked my energy and left me depleted. I learned that I had toxic people in my life and that I needed to remove them so that I could find myself instead of pleasing them by being and doing what they thought I should be doing and what they wanted me to be for them. I was not sleeping or exercising the way I should have been and all things meditation were none existent. I had a stressful job, stressful relationships and I was extremely unhealthy and unhappy.

Transformation

In my transformation I found my true self, my authentic self, I learned how to eat for my body constitution, and how to take care of myself in mind, body and soul. In this process I found that I believe in a holistic lifestyle, that living this kind of life is easy for me, it comes natural and I saw a change in my health immediately. I have much more to learn about holistic health and I wake up every morning looking forward to the next learning experience I will encounter.

For detoxing: dry body brushing awakens the lymphatic system by getting blood and organs stimulated, cool showers, oil pulling to clear toxins from the body, eating more oils like avocados, ghee, butter that are lubricants that the body needs to thrive.
