It is now 3 months since officially launching The Energise Academy. I wish I could say this new career of being a Health Educator, a Lifestyle Coach and Marketeer has been easy, but it hasn’t.
I was diagnosed with cancer three years ago, six months after a high intensity stem cell transplant I had a relapse. I wouldn’t let my oncologist tell me the revised prognosis, I just focussed on getting better.
I have since discovered my situation was considered terminal and that the majority of patients in a similar situation don’t make it past six months.
It was at this junction that my mindset shifted from ‘maybe cancer was just one of those things’ to ‘I helped create it, so I can help shift it.’ Explaining how this came about is another story for another time.
Firstly, let's look at how the World Health Organisation’s definition of health.
"Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
In order to achieve complete well-being wouldn’t you agree that we need to have some balance in each of the areas of our lives?
How many of us really have balance in all most areas of our life? How many of us have one particular area of our life that is really out of kilter? How many of us are knowingly taking ourselves to an early grave but for some reason can’t stop our selves?
For me, I had extreme levels of stress in my life and I wasn’t handling it well. Despite having a beautiful wife, two gorgeous children and a relatively successful career, I had felt terrible, I felt burnt out but for some reason, I kept soldiering on.
I now realise that my life and particularly my lifestyle resulted in a high psychological stress and this constant and high period of stress contributed massively to my cancer. The physiological response to any stressors on the body is inflammation.
Inflammation is the root cause to most disease. Whilst there are two types of inflammation, acute and chronic, the one we need to pay most attention to is the chronic inflammation. That is the silent killer.
Chronic inflammation can be caused by a number of lifestyle factors from the foods we eat, the fat stored in our body, heavy metal poisoning of the body, environmental toxins we are all exposed to, electromagnetic frequencies (mobile phones and masts) and psychological stressors.
In most cases, your lifestyle holds the keys to your health. Whilst modern medicine is good at fixing the problem, it isn’t very good at dealing with the root cause. The root cause to most issues lies in the poor lifestyle choices.
Having had the opportunity to focus on my own health for the last three years, spent hundreds and thousands of pounds working with some of the worlds leading experts, read, studied furiously, I have realised optimal health really isn’t that difficult.
That said, the most difficult task for most is changing their mindset, changing their beliefs, improving their mental health leading to more healthy daily habits and rituals.
I have discovered is that there are just six important aspects to a healthy lifestyle. The first three are essential for our survival and the second three are important to allow us to thrive. This complete framework is called The Energised Life Success Framework.
As a member of the Energise Academy, you will get access to this framework, access to an extremely supportive community of like-minded individuals.
Membership is only for those that take their health seriously and ready to take action. You will have access to world-class, live changing tools and techniques to live a healthier lifestyle. You will get to know the experts that have helped me on my journey too.
We currently have the Fabulous Food Programme for our members which includes six courses teaching the nutrition and food part of the lifestyle I now show you how to integrate more plant-based, vegan, raw and living foods into your lifestyle.
I am not a doctor, I am not a physician, I am not a naturopath, but I am someone that has taken significant action to save my own life. I have re-engineered my life to be the most healthy version of myself possible.
Let me help you and join our Tribe of like-minded, healthy conscious warriors.
