Strategies for Optimal Health

Taking care of your body during this time comes down to lifestyle. You are what you decide and choose, so choose wisely. Given the complexity of the human body and the layers of energetic processes which give rise to our physical reality, embracing the most natural methods for nourishment and activity produce the most vibrant experience of health. A few simple concepts will help you make the best natural selections for yourself. 1. Cultivate your energy We are beings of light. Just look through an infrared camera and you will see that we give off light in the form of heat. This is electromagnetic energy which has been transferred from the chemical bonds of the food we eat and the air we breath. Plants convert light into carbon chains and we convert carbon chains into light.We can cultivate our energy through diet, sleep, movement and focused mental processes such as meditation, chi gong, tai chi, and yoga. The more we practice, the more freely we move energy.2. Spend time in the sun. Our bodies evolved to synchronize with cycles and light and dark. Our circadian rhythms match the rising and setting of the sun. This has important implications for health. Several interesting studies indicate that sunshine helps our bodies regulate numerous metabolic processes. Additional studies indicate that our diet and when we eat has secondary influences on our health. Rather than detail those studies it's easier to summarize the implications:- sleep at night- eat during the day - ideally between 10 AM and 6 PM.- Avoid eating at night and give your body at least 12 hours of fasting per day  - Allow your body to use the energy you consume. (avoid grazing)- Match caloric intake to activity levels- Focus on protein and fats for 80% of your calories and use carbs for the rest3. Movement is necessary for optimal health- get up every couple hours and move your body- if you can't exercise - fidget. tap your fingers, bounce your knees, shift position frequently. This will keep energy flowing and blood circulating.- Stop working out. Working out is largely ritual - use it only if it brings you joy.- Instead of working out, consider specific movements that will train your body to move in ways that help you live your life. - Add a small amount of resistance training to your life. Resistance training stimulates lean muscle development which helps you burn excess fat. It also increases your capacity to do work and respond to increased physical demands. It also stimulates bone formation and helps preserve balance and protective responses.4. Natural foods promote a healthy body.Eat whole foods as your primary source of nutrition. Processed foods contain excess energy relative to nutrient density. Processed foods sacrifice the life in the food in exchange for long term storage and profit margins. Whole foods contain many cofactors and useful molecules that help our bodies maintain excellent function. Therefore, focus your efforts on obtaining the freshest, most wholesome...

We're living in the most interesting times. And while on the surface it looks like we're in disagreement, when I look closer, it appears we're literally separating from each other based on levels of consciousness. We're literally entering different timelines and completely distinct realities. Therefore, I'm setting my intention on the highest and best for my level of consciousness and I'm ignoring everything else, even to the point of leaving my career of emergency medicine. I plan to follow my instincts, employ my imagination and creative energies, and focus my intention on what is best for me and the people I'm with.
