Hi Wellness Path Followers,
What health journey the last couple of weeks have been. My daughter is home from her school year in Thailand. She has not been feeling great and so my energy has been put into teaching her about food, nutrition, green juice and making it for her as she recovers. We have been using an integrated approach to wellness and while the road is not smooth, I am pleased to see how the naturopathic, holistic and allopathic communities are working together.
While you personally are the CEO of your body, I am learning a lot about how you really need to have a Chief Operations Health Officer (COHO) who is the centre point for all the logistics that support your wellness journey. Finding a friend or a family member to support you is key – especially when you do not feel well. It is hard enough to remember all the info when you feel great, so having your COHO with you really helps when you are ill. And yes, I am the COHO for my daughter.
You also need to have established a great community in advance who can help you when you need it. I feel blessed to have so many people in my wellness community who have provided guidance and support as we work together to get my daughter to her optimum health.
For now, the whole family is drinking green juice to stay healthy, build our immune systems and bring the nourishment we need to fuel our bodies.
To creating a wellness community who support you on your journey.
I am grateful.
Jo-Ann Blondin, your 9CupChallenge partner.
