On February 8th, Gretchen Homer discussed nutrition by muscle testing. She helps to identify stressors in the body and provide you with specific nutritional supplements that will help to reverse those stressors.
She used the analogy that one could view their nutritional health as one views their car. If your check engine light comes on, you take it to the mechanic, where they run a diagnostic test to identify a cause. You don’t tape over the light or switch it off, which is what we do in many cases with our own health. Gretchen will help to identify the cause and help your body receive the support it needs to begin self-healing.
Ginnie Hill discussed the connection between mental health and physical wellness. As a former psychologist turned nutritionist, her insight was much of mind over matter.
She offered some examples of what may have been the reason behind trying for healthy weight previously without much success. Things like, if it’s not your “why”, if you are making suffering your identity, or if you don’t believe what you’re doing will work, will all negatively contribute to your success in a healthy mind/body relationship.
In what she refers to as the ‘stress bucket’ you can identify all the things in your life that may contribute to stress such as: work-life balance, unhealthy relationships, poor physical health, depression, etc., and if there is one major contributing factor, you must start responding differently to that situation in order to change it.
Sisters Andrea Dill and Natalie Sadeck provided easy solutions to bring more fruits and vegetables into the diet and shared how scientific research backed their anecdotal experiences.
“As part of the healthy living revolution movement, our goal is to come alongside families who want better health, meet them where they are and empower positive changes along the way. We inspire healthy living by offering free resources as well as nutritional support.” Andrea Dill
In addition to our speakers, this Sunday’s Courier Journal had a great article about responsible food consumption and how you can do your part.
Despite each speaker bringing a different focus to the program, there were consistent messages every time.
- This is no one size fits all - everyone is different
- Changes take time and effort
- Foundation programs and principles can give you huge results if you give it time
