exploring health as a form of wealth
There is an early pattern that often develops prior to a chronic disease diagnosis.
The more of these that stack up, the higher the risk.
An advisor I spoke to yesterday had 4 of them but still thought of himself as someone who was healthy (just needing to lose a couple pounds).
The reality of his situation is much more serious than losing a couple pounds.
Any one of the issues below is a problem, but 3 or more is officially considered metabolic syndrome:
1) high triglycerides
2) blood sugar issues
3) a waist size > half your height
4) high blood pressure
5) low HDL
Metabolic syndrome is the pathway to heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
This was an eye-opening moment for the advisor yesterday.
Fortunately, there is something he can do about it.
Step one is awareness of the reality of your situation.
Step two is to take action to knock some of these off your plate.
There are 5 pathways to health and 2 frameworks I teach to incorporate them into your life.
These 5 pathways are:
- blood sugar stabilization
- metabolic flexibility
- oxygen utilization
- muscle & joint function
- minimizing health traps & taxes
When these get fixed, cravings go away, weight self-corrects, and peace and confidence show up in your health.
What is your strategy for each?
