Health care and awareness of personal wellbeing is an important part of our lives, especially after Covid. We know that if you take care of yourself, it will be easier when the going gets tough.
The latest health clinics are fully booked and adapt their programmes to the needs of their guests, because modern life and personal circumstances need a retreat from time to time. If you agree that it is important to invest in your health, you should visit a retreat of your choice. Once you experience how balanced and healthy you can feel, you will want to come back again and again. In the meantime, follow IRMA’s tips on how to stay fit and healthy when you return home or have not yet found your favourite place.
ROSS BARR, ACUPUNCTURIST AND WOMEN’S HEALTH EXPERT, LONDON
On your next visit to London, book an appointment with Ross J. Barr, who specialises in five-element acupuncture. This is based on the theory that mind, body and spirit are made up of five elements or energies (from wood and fire to earth, metal and water) that should be balanced for our well-being. This method is great for treating stress. If you are not in London, check out the web shop where you will find the supplements you need in today’s health conscious world. http://rossbarr.com
Don’t just take nature for granted. Walking your dog should also be a boon for your health and a detox experience for your eyes and mind, especially if you work a lot in front of the computer.
A problem shared is a problem halved, so therapy can work wonders for chronically stressed minds. Find a coach or psychologist or even an osteopath. The first two are great to talk to and the osteopath will listen through your body and can work wonders. Perfect for the calmer characters among us.
TAKE A DEEP BREATH, IT’S A FREE GIFT
Most of us neglect our breathing, especially when we are stressed. Make it a rule to focus on your breathing for 5 minutes in the morning and afternoon to make sure your body gets enough oxygen. Sitting up straight can also help a lot. Or book a breathing class at your local yoga studio to learn how to breathe properly.
See your doctor regularly for a blood test to check which minerals your body may be lacking. Twice a year is a good idea. Especially if you have a busy lifestyle. Your body works best when it has the right amount of minerals in it, and to get them in as quickly as possible, we recommend intravenous (IV) drops, which most general practitioners use.
ONLINE SHOPPING FOR YOUR HEALTH
Visit the online shop of your favourite health clinic and buy the herbs that were used in their menus, their morning cereals and their favourite herbal teas. Not only will it make your home cooking tasty and healthy, but the flavours will remind you of your health retreat, bringing back good health habits and memories.
