Let’s really think about it … when you shower, you wouldn’t only wash your feet then get out? No! You would bathe your entire body to ensure that it is fresh, and clean for the day.
That approach should also be taken with your health.
Many times you only approach your health and wellness through one lens. You only workout, or you only eat well; while neglecting the many other components that make up your health in its entirety.
What Does Holistic Health Mean?
Holistic Health involves looking at the whole person and what the body needs. You have to look at your entire genetic makeup and address your health concerns individually, but most importantly as a whole.
What does this approach look like?
It looks like considering many factors, including one’s biological makeup and unhealthy behaviors, such as poor diet, poor habits, chronic stress, and poor sleep. It also includes examining your social aspects: like the conditions of your birth, how you receive our food, where you live, and where you work. All of these can lead to chronic diseases of more than one organ system.
On the other hand, self-care, lifestyle, and behavioral interventions may help with the return to health.
Holistic health addresses every single component: your physical health through what you’re eating and how your body is moving, as well your mental health and how you’re feeling.
What Are 3 Benefits of Holistic Health?
Let’s talk about what happens when your whole health is in balance.
Your heart will become healthier.
One of the first signs that your heart may be in danger is developing high blood pressure. You don’t want that to creep in. Why? The strain from high blood pressure can lead to a stroke, or atherosclerosis, which can cause a heart attack.
Your blood sugar will lower.
If you have high blood sugar, or pre-diabetes, you have probably been told that exercise is good for blood sugar control. That’s absolutely true. Movement through exercise can help lower your blood sugar for 24 hours or more after exercise by making your body more sensitive to insulin.
Your gut health will drastically improve.
There are billions of microorganisms living in your gut working hard to keep you healthy. That world inside your gut is known as the microbiome, and what you eat has a lot to do with the health of your gut.
The unfortunate truth is, in today’s world it’s nearly impossible to consume enough nutrients we need in one day. Between our work life balance and the quality of food we have at our resources, we all struggle to meet our nutrient goals by food alone. This is why we must supplement.
We are supplementing to balance, and we are supplementing to address the full needs of our entire body, like the need to PREVENT.
To address these critical health issues we experience when we don’t optimize our whole body health, prevention strategies should be prioritized. Our His and Her PREVENTION Daily Kits target three preventable health concerns at their root cause:
- Hormonal Imbalance
- Vitamin D Deficiency
What is Inflammation?
- Inflammation is a natural defense mechanism against injury or infection but becomes damaging when it occurs in healthy tissues for prolonged periods turning into chronic inflammation.
- Chronic inflammatory diseases contribute to more than half of global deaths and are prevalent among Black individuals, exacerbating conditions like abnormal scar tissue and tumor growth, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, autoimmune diseases, gastrointestinal disorders, lung diseases, mental illnesses, neurodegenerative diseases, and fibroids.
How Serious is Hormonal Imbalance?
- A recent analysis revealed that 78% of products marketed to Black Women contain ingredients classified as “moderately hazardous” or “high-potential hazards,” linked to cancer, hormone disruption, and reproductive damage.
- Hormonal imbalances in women can lead to heavy and painful periods, fibroids, endometriosis, breast cancer, cysts, infertility, weight gain, insomnia, fatigue, hair loss, bone density loss, and irritability/mood swings.
- In men, endocrine disruptors can cause erectile dysfunction, prostate cancer, gynecomastia (man boobs), Muscle Loss, Weight Gain, Insomnia, Bone Density Loss, Hair Loss, Irritability/Mood Swings.
What is the Main Cause of Vitamin D Deficiency?
- Vitamin D is vital for bone development, the nervous system, musculoskeletal system, and immune system.
- 76% of African Americans have vitamin D deficiency due to melanin, diet, and insufficient supplementation
- Vitamin D Deficiency is linked to conditions such as:
- Hair loss
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Autoimmune diseases
While we are working on our entire health, or as we like to call it Whole Person Health, we want to make sure we are preventing as much as possible.
