Why you should look at yourself as a complete ecosystem

Why you should look at yourself as a complete ecosystem, not just deal with the symptoms individually.

Why you should look at yourself as a complete ecosystem

I spent a lot of my life being unhealthy in mind and body and not very well at being. I can recall way back to my teens suffering digestive issues, mental health problems like anxiety and depression and these continued through the decades. I thought everyone was like me – worrying about future events that hadn’t and may not happen.

I learned to take back control over my mind and body, influence my well-being both physically and mentally and am a healthy happy and content person. It’s taken work, there is no quick fix but what I have learned is that there is no ‘one size fits all’; this interests me hugely as the mind and body is so inexplicably unique and complex we vastly underestimate the effects of our thoughts and what we fuel ourselves with, our environment and our experiences. These all shape our being.

My journey to wellness started with understanding the detrimental effect my thoughts were having on me. I have met and exchanged stories with many people and the most important lesson I have learned is that what works for one person won’t necessarily work for another, this is why the NHS is struggling. To achieve wellness is a personal journey and can be facilitated by many routes, both medicine and holistic. Find what works for you.
