Savor the Season - Give Yourself the Gift of Good Health

By Karla Jones Seidita, Home Economist


Good health is perhaps our most precious gift.

When you are healthy, you feel good.  When you feel good, you're able to follow your bliss.

It is improbable that you've come through millions of years of evolution to live a life that's less than full and rich.

With each turn of the her genetic key, Mother Nature provides well being.... but look around - there is much pain, suffering and sickness in the world.... even in this country which is blessed with abundance and opportunity.

There are many factors involved with the human experience and, even thought we all share a common humanity, each person is unique and comes with his or her own users manual.

Pay attention to the messages your body is sending you and your health will dramatically improve.

At first, the messages are low key and subtle.  Ignore them and they escalate with volcanic proportions.

Cracked finger nails may be a sign that you're eating too many refined carbs for your body's needs.  Eat too many refined carbs for too many years and you may become diabetic just when you're ready to really enjoy life.

A dry cough might mean you're dehydrated.  Ignore your need for water and you've got joints that wear out long before them time.

Always get the medical attention you need it but start paying attention to your body.  For optimal health, work with it not against it.

Give yourself the gift of good health this holiday season.
You'll know when you're doing the right thing because you'll feel ....and look .....GREAT!
