Ridiculously Simple Steps To Transform Your Health (and Life) : Step Two

by Chiropractors Brighton on August 12, 2009

Brighton BeachIt takes a full and total commitment to passionately engage in transformation. Time, effort, focus and determination to make changes.

Health is a result of the choices we make, it does not come by chance and in the world we now live in there are many obstacles that prevent us from being healthy naturally. It requires constant awareness of each choice we make. In his research into the new field of Epigenetics, Dr James Chestnut dispels the myth that our health is a result of bad luck, bad germs and bad genes. He says that our health is influenced by our genes only 1% of the time!! – that’s 99% of our health that we can do something about by the choices we make!!!!!!!!!!!

We find that very empowering.

To take the next Ridiculously Simple Step To Transform Your Health (and Life) is nothing more than a walk to your door, step outside and take ten deep breaths first thing each morning or your could take this Ridiculously Simple Step a few steps further to include a daily walk.

Most of us now spend the vast majority of our time indoors which decreases our exposure to healthy air. It has been conclusively shown that indoor air quality is worse than outdoor air quality. Our ancestors spent virtually all waking time outdoors. Even their shelters were far from air tight so there was always ample fresh air and of course theirs was not an industrialised world.

We are blessed in Brighton to have the sea and sea air contains negative ions (it’s the only negative thing I know that is actually positive!!)

Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments. The beach being one of them. They are also in abundance in forests, mountains and waterfalls. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy.

“Generally speaking, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy,” says Pierce J. Howard, PhD, author of The Owners Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind Brain Research and director of research at the Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences in Charlotte, N.C.
