The Body as Sanctuary: Healing Metabolic & Hormonal Relationships
Often, our life is compartmentalized to keep up with a hectic schedule. When we have time to rebalance, we are often energized with new hope, ideas, and solutions to our daily challenges. A careful balance of healing restoration and activity is just as essential as the physical food, water, and breath that sustains us.
High Stress & Chronic Health Conditions
Finding time and energy to create healing space in our life can be difficult. A restorative, practice may have to wait to a specific day or time. We are taught to take care of everyone and everything else before we take care of our self. Ongoing stress (i.e, socio-economic, work-life, trauma, environmental/geopathic stress) and reduced sleep, insufficient hydration, and low nutrient dense foods may further drain our mind, body, and spirit. This often leads to burnout. Long periods of rest and activity imbalance strain our metabolic and hormonal relationships. Eventually, this leads to increased inflammation and chronic health conditions.
In October 2019, the Center for Disease Control indicated that six in ten adults in the US have a chronic disease and four in ten adults have two or more.
The 10 most common chronic health conditions (2018) and the National Health Impact percentage:
- Hypertension, 12.5%
- Major Depression, 9%
- High Cholesterol, 8.6%
- Coronary Artery Disease, 7%
- Type 2 Diabetes, 5.5%
- Substance Use Disorder, 3.4%
- Alcohol Use Disorder, 3.3%
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), 3.3%
- Psychotic Disorder, 2.9%
- Crohn’s Disease/Ulcerative Colitis, 2.7%
