Choose to restore, revitalize and rejuvenate your metabolism (Part 1)

Choose to restore, revitalize and rejuvenate your metabolism.
Your metabolism is a direct reflection of your lifestyle and personal philosophies. Every bite of food has a profound effect on hormones and neurotransmitters. The food you eat is much more than a supply of building blocks for tissues and cells. The type of carbohydrates we eat and the proportion of protein, fat and carbohydrate in a meal create profound hormonal signals that ripple out to each and every cell of the body.
Don’t blame genetics for uncontrollable tendencies. If most of your immediate family members are challenged by similar health conditions this likeness is caused by the similar lifestyles you`ve all learned and adopted. Similar lifestyles produce similar metabolic activity and ultimately very similar physical outcomes. Through your daily choices, you’ve chosen the metabolism that’s often blamed for fatness or other illnesses. You can also choose to change that physical and mental state.
Choose to get to the outdoors and walk every day instead of staying indoors during the winter months. Walk at lunch time and eat your healthier lunch choice on the go. Park your car one block from the office and walk a bit each day. Take the stairs instead of the escalator. All of these seemingly unimportant and small changes will amount to a huge difference when compounded.
Your daily choices mould your metabolism. Although most of us have a general idea about what we should be doing to improve metabolism we just don’t have a detailed plan. The right plan makes the goal easy to attain. The precise food selections empower the metabolism to rid itself of encumbering toxins and excess fat. We are all faced with natural byproducts of metabolism, environmental pollutants and food-borne toxins. Most of them silently make their way into our cells and slowly change the way our cells function. The wrong food choices and the toxins they carry bend the metabolism and make us vulnerable to disease. They simply block our natural ability to restore and regenerate health.
The best therapy for mild depression, fatness and even chronic fatigue is physical exercise accompanied by the outdoor light and the right food choices. Physical exercise directly mobilizes toxins and pumps lymphatic sludge out of the body. Natural sunlight is transformed in the brain into neurological transmission and improved mental awareness. Research also shows that the nutrients from our whole food penetrate to the genetic level to support and even activate our naturally built-in health maintenance genes. Processed foods are deficient of these natural impulses. Applying any one of these changes improves your health but applying each of them at the same time – improved nutrition, supplements, physical activity, and exposure to the outdoors – has a profound exponential effect.
Even the choices you make regarding stress affect the pace of your cells. Stress hormones literally change the way insulin and fat cells process fat causing them to store more of it. And yes, you do have a degree of control over how stressors influence your being. Perception is reality and changing your perspective about a stressor changes how it influences your body. You get to choose how this stressor influences your cells.
Sleep is another basic factor. Lack of sleep reduces your ability to tolerate stress. Lack of sleep also influences specific hormones – leptin and grehlin – and how they interact to create the feeling of satiety and hunger. Lack of sleep translates into less appetite control and increased body fat deposition. You get to control how much sleep you get each day. Choose to get enough sleep to improve your metabolism and health.
From this point on don’t dwell and blame; just do something about it. Your metabolism is ultimately a continuous pulsing energy made up of ‘everything’ in and around your life funneled into your being through your mind and your mouth. ‘Everything’ includes the food you eat, the physical work you do, the way you interpret your environment, the stress you perceive, sleep, the biological health of each of the hormones and their systems and so much more. You have control over many of the factors that influence your metabolism.
Changing any one component of the lifestyle makes a mild difference. Effectively changing the direction and momentum of the ‘metabolism’ requires resetting all of these linked effectors; it requires a completely different outlook on life; it requires a different way of life. New Years is here! New Year`s resolutions are old and faded inspirations. If you`re like most people you`re not feeling or believing the inspiration. That’s because we’ve made promises to change and we’ve failed too many times. We fail to follow through because change must be projected from real or genuine intention and it must be made through proven strategies.
Choose the real or pure intention – HEALTH. Health must be the focus. Find the right plan and cleanse, restore, rejuvenate and revitalize for the right reason – HEALTH. Commit to it because you deserve health; you deserve wellness; and you deserve fulfillment.
Choose to make fit, healthy revitalizing choices throughout the day. Incorporate more physical activity. This doesn’t mean you have to engage in planned exercise two hours each day. Just make choices as you go that result in more physical work: walk to the store instead of taking the car; ride the bicycle to the bank; and take the stairs instead of the elevator. Take a walk at lunch time and park the car a few blocks from the office to get some physical work and increase sunlight exposure. All of these seemingly small actions amount to a huge impact when compounded.
Choose the right supplement plan and food guide. I’m not talking about dieting, calorie restriction and struggle. I’m talking about the right plan that guides you each step of the way and nourishes the mind and body so thoroughly that willpower and guess work are not required.
CLEANSING SUPPLEMENT: Choose a supplement that supplies effective but gentle elimination herbs that initialize detoxification and cleansing. Triphala is an effective Ayervedic formulation made up of various fruits that naturally tone liver, circulatory system and digestive tract while helping mobilize and eliminate toxicity. The proper addition of turkey rhubarb and marshmallow root further support a cleansing strategy by facilitating gastrointestinal motility and ensuring that toxins are completely but still gently eliminated.
FOOD GUIDE: In order to maintain the clean and rejuvenated state that this natural detoxifying and elimination process has helped establish, your lifestyle choices must be conducive to the metabolic goal. If you stay with the same lifestyle that produced the poor outcome, the same less preferred outcome will resurface down the road.
Choose the right foods so that daily food volume can be next to unlimited while still maintaining the clean and fit metabolism. The foods that fit the objective will have a lower glycemic index (GI less than 60), relatively neutral pH outcome, and high fiber content and nutrient density. There are thousands of food guides out there available on web sites, in books and from nutritionists but few are designed based on all of the criteria that fit the cleansing model.
