Roadblocks to Building Good Relationships

In our previous post we were talking about the “4 Pillars of Building Good Relationships”. These 4 Pillars of Patience, Kindness, Unselfishness and Forgiveness are essential to create and build caring, respectful relationships between people. We also talked about how the quality of our relationships with our family, loved ones, and friends is one of the biggest factors in determining our level of mental and emotional health.

In working with thousands of clients over the years with their fitness and health programs, we have also found that improved physical health has a positive influence on our mental and emotional health, and that improved mental and emotional health has a positive influence on our physical health.

The 4 Pillars of Building Relationships

In our last post on “Improving Mental and Emotional Health” we were talking about how improved physical health can have a positive influence on our mental and emotional health. The opposite is also true that improved mental and emotional health has a positive influence on our physical health.

In operating our two fitness stores we work with a lot of people who improve their physical health with a balanced exercise program, a better nutritional program, and stress reduction. This is very beneficial because research has proven that up to 75% of degenerative diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes can be prevented with lifestyle changes. However, some people overlook the fact that we cannot reach our physical health potential if our mental and  emotional health is suffering.

Improving Mental & Emotional Health

     Mental and emotional health is just as important as physical health for a person.

Improved mental and emotional health benefits a person on a physical level, and improved physical health benefits a person on a mental and emotional level. Improving physical health is relatively simple, and can be achieved by a balanced exercise program, a better nutritional program, and stress reduction. In recent years medical researchers have determined that 75% of degenerative diseases can be prevented by a good exercise program, improved diet and reduced stress. However, how can we improve our mental and emotional health?

Benefits of Natural Health Care

            Natural Health Care is a wonderful science and art which goes back to the beginning of recorded history. In ancient Greek, Roman, Hebrew, Egyptian and Asian writings, there are many reference works on natural healing and herbal medicine. The first natural food supplements used in human history were medicinal
herbs. The Bible and many other historical documents recommend the use of herbs, a healthy diet, and fasting (cleansing) to help prevent and overcome disease. These written records go back to about 2,000 B.C. or 4,000 years ago!

            The famous saying, "Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine your food, and there is a healing power inherent in nature," was quoted by Hippocrates - the father of 'modern medicine' and the father of 'medical literature' - in about 400 B.C.

Why is massage so beneficial for our body?

We have been recommending Massage for several decades, and we're very excited to be offering our valued clientele 3D professional strength, deep muscle massage chairs and Zero Gravity Chairs for home or clinical use!

A lot of people who have a massage say afterwards, "I feel WONDERFUL!" But do they know WHY they feel so good? We all know that massage relaxes tights muscles, but do we know why that is so important?
