The Big 3, Again

This isn’t the first time I have talked about The Big 3, but when something is important it is worth mentioning again!!!

Now, The Big 3 are vital to each and every human, and failing to meet these 3 means you will ultimately FAIL any plan you “try”

75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated
70% of Americans are malnourished (yet, 70% are overweight)
44% of Americans report being NO MOVEMENT and 75% of Americans aren’t even moving 30 minutes a day

We have about 133 million people suffering from chronic illnesses….with 70% of chronic illnesses coming from lifestyle choices, 96 million Americans could resolve their chronic illnesses by making different lifestyle choices. Chronic illnesses cost America over $4 TRILLION A YEAR!!!! Yes, you read those those stats right! 96 million Americans are suffering due to their own piss poor choices.

WAKE UP!! Our bodies don’t fall apart, some of us beat the shit out of them for years and now they are crying, actually SCREAMING for attention. We have, likely unknowingly, allowed toxins, chemicals, emotions and thoughts to weaken our bodies through the years. Our bodies are divine temples and it is brilliantly efficient at keeping us alive and healthy, but even the divine needs care. With 7.5 billion people on the planet there isn’t a one size fits all sort of plan for the body to be at optimal levels, but there are specific requirements for a body to be healthy, let’s chat about them! And before embarking on any plan, we must make sure we have a solid foundation built with the necessities!

Drink water, REAL WATER!!!! There is no way around this. Our bodies are 70% water and chronic dehydration is a common link to every disease we know. So hydrate your body, drink an abundance of water so ALL of your body can get what it needs – not just the most vital, causing others to eventually fail. And we are not talking about carbonated water, or water with additives (besides essential oils and/or fruit/veggies) We have to give our body real, clean, uncarbonated water. Health can drastically improve within 7 days of proper hydration!

Our bodies have nutritional requirements to function. We need macronutrients (fats, proteins and carbs) AND micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) to function. Not only do the nutrients we fuel our body with allow proper function, there are endless studies that are showing that the right nutrients can HEAL your body from pain, mental illnesses, autoimmune diseases and chronic illnesses. Yes, HEAL!!!! Our bodies have the ability to heal from anything given the right tools, YES, ANYTHING!!! Cancer, AIDS, chronic illnesses, autoimmune diseases and everything else can be healed with the right tools. So if you feel like you have tried “everything” have you tried to heal yourself with nutrients?

And MOVE!!! After years of training I have been worked with humans, that have abused their bodies so badly that they were not actually able to move in the form of exercise. The solution to this is simple, start with stretching, using a fascia blaster, getting in pool, sitting in a chair and moving different parts. My only goal with working with someone in this position is to JUST MOVE the blood in some way!! There are so many therapies available that get the blood flowing (which is the goal of moving) Exercise does not need to feel like torture. One does not need to exist in horrendous pain and hate every second. We must find ways we enjoy moving, so we continue to do it. Starting small with parking further away at the store and taking stairs, then adding in more and more as movement becomes easier (and more enjoyable) For those of who are already working out but suffer from some chronic pains – all the listed therapies to get one moving work great to alleviate those pains and will enhance the benefits of consistent workout program already in place.

The Big 3 is a foundational piece of my online program Blueprint to Wellness. After being in the industry since 2005, I have seen fads come and go…and they almost always work in the beginning, but ultimately fail because the foundation is not solid enough to support long term. It is so common to find someone who will try keto, paleo, intermittent fasting, bulletproof or another valuable plan but they can not find long term success because their foundation is weak. Each one of these plans needs you to be hydrated, taking in nutrients and moving.

Sometimes we are so close, it is hard to back up and find a solution to our problems. We think we need to try more and more, but what if we just went back to the basics and started there? Countless clients have come in after trying “everything” yet they don’t even drink 40 ounces of water. This program was designed to help you build a solid foundation so you can ignite healing in your divine temple. The Big 3 are the very basics to health – so whether you need to start a program or revamp the one you have, look at The Big 3!
