Self-Healing with the Time of Your Life
Boost your immune system’s health by eating a variety of organically grown vegetables, beans, fruit, seeds and nuts. Trust our recommendations and begin planning and eating nutrition-rich meals right away. Why change your current food choices? Scientific evidence reveals that our immune systems may be depleted by the foods we have been eating. Diets with too many sweets, processed foods and animal fats fail to nourish our bodies. Lacking phyto(plant) nutrients, our immune systems lose the capacity to protect us from invasive agents, causing debilitating illnesses.
These are general nutritional guidelines we provide our patients. And before leaving the center each patient collaborates with us in making an individualized nutrition plan to follow at home depending on current physical conditions.
We understand how challenging changes in meal planning and eating habits can be. We’ve had to choose to change ourselves. And change we did to walk this talk. Our benefit is this: we are vigorously taking on life’s challenges. You can too.
BE COME Adapted from Creating S.M.A.R.T. Goals: Specific/Measurable/Attainable/Realistic/Timely
Be Specific: You will be more likely to accomplish a specific goal than a general goal. To create and commit to a specific goal you must answer the six “W” questions:
- Who: Who is involved?
- What: What do I want to accomplish?
- Where: Identify a location.
- When: Name/promise yourself the time by when your goal will be realized.
- Which: Identify requirements, limitations and constraints.
- Why: Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal.
EXAMPLE: A general goal would be, “Get in shape.” But a specific goal would say, “Join a health club and workout 3 days a week.”
Be Measured - Establish concrete criteria for assessing progress toward the attainment of each goal you set. When you assess your progress in benchmarks by target dates, you experience self-satisfaction. This leads to continued effort to reach your final goal.
To establish a measurable goal with benchmarks, ask questions such as……How much? How many? By when? What defines the accomplishment of the goal?
Be Attainable – Prioritize the identified goals and list what you must do to make them come true. What abilities, skills and financial capacity will you use or develop to reach them? What are opportunities that could make achievement of your goals attainable?
For any goal to be attainable, plan the action steps and their benchmarks in a realistic time frame. This plan contributes to stress- free attainment of each goal. Your inner well- being day by day as you accomplish expands your self- esteem. “I am worthy.”
Be Realistic- To be realistic, each goal must be organized with sub-set objectives toward which you are passionately willing and able to work. Be sure that every objective can be measured for substantial progress.
Develop each goal you eagerly yearn to achieve. Some accomplishments actually seem easy simply because you work for them as a labor of love.
Be Timely – A goal should be realistically grounded within a time frame tied to a sense of urgency. Your goal is realistic if you truly believe that it can be accomplished based on having accomplished some thing similar in the past or given similar conditions. Then your belief can affect your subconscious to support you in attaining the goal.
T also stands for Tangible – A goal is tangible when you can experience it with one of the senses, that is, taste, touch, smell, sight or hearing.
Let your goals be come you.
