“I Hate Exercise” – Leon Hiett
We continually hear this word during the news, in conversations, at work or read it in newspapers, magazines and the like. Surprisingly, there’s no definition of wellness that seems to be universally accepted. Nonetheless, there is a set of general characteristics found in most good attempts at define wellness. We routinely see references made to wellness being a “state of well-being,” which is very vague. We also routinely see wellness defined as a “state of acceptance or satisfaction with our present condition.”
Truth be told, wellness is a very tough difficult word to define. Personally, I like what Charles B. Corbin from Arizona State University has to say. He defines wellness as a “multidimensional state of being describing the existence of positive health in an individual as exemplified by quality of life and a sense of well-being.”
Wellness is considered to be an active process of becoming aware of and learning to make choices (healthy choices) that lead toward a longer and more successful existence.
- We use the word “process” to note that further improvement is always possible
- We use the word “aware” to note that we are continuously seeking more knowledge about how we can improve.
- We use the word “choices” to note that we consider many options and choose those in our best interest.
WHAT IS WELLNESS?
Wellness and good health have historically been seen a freedom from disease; thus, if you weren’t sick, then you were considered healthy. This historical perspective on wellness is changing. While virtually everyone agrees that absence from illness is a primary component of being healthy, it doesn’t however indicate anything about your state of well-being.
As a state of health, wellness is closely linked to your lifestyle and the choices you make. Each individual has a responsibility to themselves to provide for the essentials of good health – that being proper weight control, good nutrition, physical activity and exercise, and controlling of health risk factors such as tobacco use, alcohol and drug use and/or abuse. These things all have a role in wellness.
“IF THE LYMPH SYSTEM DOESN’T WORK DAILY
YOU WILL DIE. IT’S THAT SIMPLE.” – LEON HIETT
The human body needs to move. The lymph system bathes every cell, carrying nutrients to the cell and waste products away. Contrary to blood which is pumped by the heart, the lymph is totally dependent on physical exercise to move. Without adequate movement, the cells are left stewing in their own waste products and starving for nutrients, a situation which contributes to arthritis, cancer and other degenerative diseases as well as aging. Vigorous exercise such as rebounding is reported to increase lymph flow by 15 to 30 times.
Increasing Lung Capacity to Burn Oxygen
The Health Circulator is a major breakthrough in physical therapy. It provides a way to use all of the body muscles and tissue at the same time. The great volume of gentle muscle movement creates a natural demand for oxygen. Just a few minutes daily on The Health Circulator helps develop and sustain greater lung capacity.
Why Should We Increase Lung Capacity To Use Oxygen?
:: Oxygen is a healing agent. It cleans out impurities in out arteries, our veins, our muscle tissue and our body joints.
