If you’re like many of us, you’ve heard over and over that there is no magic pill to fix your health ailments. There is no easy way out and there’s definitely no quick fix.
Unfortunately, when it comes to having more energy and vibrant health, many people continue to look for this “magic pill.” They’re still searching for a quick fix…
I’m here to tell you that there is no magic pill to cure a lack of energy, obesity, heart disease, cancer, constipation, arthritis, migraines, fatigue or whatever else you may be dealing with, but…. there is a secret!
The secret? A great diet, regular sleep, better exercise and emotional stability!
Are you familiar with the term “wholistic” health? “Wholistic health” truly takes into consideration the whole person and every aspect of their life, everything from the food they eat to the amount of exercise they get to the TV programs they watch and even the person they are married to!
There is no quick fix, there is no short cut and there is no easy way out! That’s it – that’s the secret right there!
Time and time again I talk to people who want better health, but don’t really want to put in the work. Let me give you some examples: They want their stomach problems to go away, but they continue to want a bedtime snack (cookies, usually) every night. They want their migraines to go away, but they refuse to drink more water (much less give up the sugary beverages). They want more energy, but refuse to sleep over 5 hours a night. They want less stress in their life, but don’t want to address the people and circumstances that are stressing them out.
Some of these people might be willing to make a change in ONE area of their life, but they don’t want to address the whole picture.
Do you remember what I told you about “wholistic” health? Every aspect of your life MUST be addressed.
Dr. Sidney Baker, M.D. is known for his great example of the “Tacks Rules” when trying to get to the root cause of his patient’s medical problems.
There Are Two Rules:
Rule #1: If you are sitting on a tack, it takes a lot of aspirin to make it feel better.
Rule #2: If you are sitting on two tacks, removing just one does not result in a 50% improvement.
(You could replace the word “aspirin” with anything else, such as the newest herbal supplement for removing pain, a greens salad, vitamins, psychotherapy, surgery, chiropractic, etc.)
Did you catch that? The removal of one tack does not reduce the pain by 50%. The pain still persists because you are still sitting on one tack. ALL of the tacks have to be removed in order for the pain to go away.
When I think about “wholistic” health, I think about the Rule of Tacks. You can’t just remove and/or “fix” one tack – you have to remove and “fix” all of the tacks.
All areas of your life (including the food you eat, the exercise you get (or lack thereof), your sleep schedule, stress reduction, and emotional wellbeing, etc.) have to be addressed to make sure they are supporting your health and vitality and NOT becoming a hindrance to your health instead.
Can you see why there is no magic pill? There is NO herbal supplement that can take away your pain and heal your body just like there is NO pharmaceutical prescription that can cure your worst disease.
Yoga alone is not the answer and a kale salad can’t make up for the sleep you did not get.
And no, not even the highly thought of (and very successful) Cannabis oil can cure ALL of your health ailments. While it might help at removing one of those “tacks,” there are probably more tacks that still need to be addressed!
This email is not intended to discourage you, but rather, to empower you!
I encourage you to stop looking outward for answers about your health (trust me, you won’t find the magic pill by doing a Google search – it just doesn’t exist), and start looking inward instead!
Ask yourself some or all of these questions (keep in mind that this is not a complete list):
These are just a few examples of the questions you could be asking yourself about the state of your health! The possibilities are endless!
My only desire is to encourage you to take up the reigns and to embrace the process that comes with improving your health and living life to the fullest, physically, emotionally and spiritually!
It’s not an easy fix – it’s a process that takes time, dedication and work.
