Laura created "Path to Health and Healing" to provide health information to empower people to take charge of their health and transform their life. Health and healing is about addressing the whole person. This includes healing physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It is not simply about taking a pill. She feels people are frustrated with the current health care system. Treating symptoms is not going to help them heal. Finding the root cause and addressing it will. She is passionate about this and that is why she started http://www.pathtohealthandhealing.com and wrote "Seeds 4 Change: A Path to Health and Healing."
Excessive, unexplained tiredness as increased cortisol levels keep the body in a continued alert state. Excessive sugar/salt cravings due to lowered blood sugar and increased elimination of salts in urine. Heightened energy in the evenings due to high cortisol levels. Difficulty in handling stress. More prone to infections due to lowered immunity. Imbalanced hormones.
Know your limits and set achievable goals. Not achieving goals may induce depression, which in turn causes overeating. Don't give up food you love but find healthy alternatives. Never starve as it increases cortisol levels that leads to cravings and overeating. Instead eat multiple small meals. Avoid junk food. Get back to eating healthy even if you cheat once a while.
Keep moving and stay active to burn more calories. Eat small meals every 2-4 hrs. Consume ‘healthy’ fats and drink cold water to increase your calorie burning potential. Weight training ensures fat burn during and after exercise. Include hot spices in your diet to boost metabolism. Increase protein as the body consumes more calories to break it down.
Walking meditation requires you to move and be active and engage your mind and body in the activity in order to experience a holistic positive result. You must not allow the outer world to bind your mind into it. The principle behind walking meditation is achieving a balanced awareness, equilibrium, between your inner self and the outer world surrounding you.
