Favorite Body-Mind Therapies for a Better Health.

health therapies


Do you think that if you focus only on proper and clean eating you will be as healthy as possible? Or if you take all the necessary supplements will you better ensure this? Or is it much more important to do daily sports? Or meditate? Or do you care about mental and emotional health first? I am convinced that nowadays it is necessary to consider all these aspects, in order to benefit from optimal health and longevity. There is no use if you do daily sports, and then eat fast food. Or if you eat perfectly healthy for your type, but you are emotionally and mentally wrecked. So, the more open and curios you’ll be to explore and apply various therapies for health, the more you’ll improve and new horizons will open up to you.

Below is a summary of some favorite therapies and practices I follow. I started with some longer time ago, others are more recent. I strive, as you do, to remain consistent and to draw up a daily plan in this regard. It is not easy. I know from my own experience. But I know as long as I maintain my motivation and do not lose sight of the end goal – a better version of my person, both physiologically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and energetically, then it will be possible. The real desire for change is so important.

In conclusion, I invite you to try at least some of the practices below, to experiment and see what you resonate with the most. Sure, you can go to a specialized class, but some practices can be followed (or even started) at home. For me personally, a combination of these, depending on how I feel on that day is the most beneficial. It is important as I mentioned, to allocate that “time for evolution and health.” It will be an investment you will not regret!

The specific breathing exercises of the Wim Hof ​​method are focused on deep and rhythmic inhalations and exhalations, described by Wim as “controlled hyperventilation” and are followed by a retention time, in which you hold your breath for a certain time. By practicing the breathing exercises, you release more energy, influencing your autonomic nervous system and changing various physiological reactions. Frequent exposure to cold is linked to a number of health benefits and is an ancient practice in the Nordic countries.

Breathing exercises are one of the three pillars that make up the Wim Hof ​​method. When combined with the other two pillars – cold therapy and mind training, it will all determine better stress resistance, you will feel stronger and you will enjoy better health.

Meditation has been practiced since ancient times in many traditions, often as part of the path to enlightenment and self-realization. Meditation is a practice in which the individual uses a technique – such as mindfulness, or focusing the mind on a particular object, thought or activity, to train attention and awareness and to obtain a calm and emotionally stable mental state. Researchers found meditation difficult to define, as practices vary both with and within traditions. I recommend meditation with Dr. Joe Dispenza here as one of my favorites. Dr. Dispenza is an expert who offers extremely interesting information about the convergence between neuroscience, epigenetics and quantum physics and a very accessible education on how to heal your mind through his incredible techniques.

His studies have shown that when they are well practiced correctly, these tools can put us on the path to understanding and breaking bad rooted habits and even healing diseases.

Some benefits: reducing stress, anxiety, depression and pain, obtaining a sense of peace, love, increasing perception, and well being.
