The word of God tells me that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit of God that dwells inside each and every born-again Christian. For this reason all of us are special and we are obligated to honor God by caring for that which belongs to Him. Because we are made in the image of God we are responsible to care for our bodies.  Here are four easy step toward that goal:


PRIMARY FOODS: 

Nutrition is a secondary source of energy. Primary foods, or nonfood sources of nourishment, are what really fuel us. As children, we all lived on primary food. Lovers thrive on the pure bliss and peace they’re experiencing, while passionate entrepreneurs are fueled by their work. The excitement and rapture of daily life feeds us more completely than any food. 

SPIRITUALITY:

As Integrative Institute of Nutrition states SPIRITUALITY: I believe in The Trinity, God the Father, God the Son and The Holy Spirit. A power much larger than myself. OUR DEEPEST FEAR-most people aren’t trained to see past their struggles. If this goal is reached, then what? While we attribute most fears to failure, some fears can also be attached to success.

RELATIONSHIPS:
WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL LOVED? Words of affirmation, acts of Service, receiving gifts, quality time and/or physical touch.

CAREER:
DO WHAT YOU LOVE,  LOVE WHAT YOU DO Many people spend days, weeks, months, years, and even decades in careers that are diametrically opposed to who they  are as spiritual beings. It’s incredibly important to find alignment  in your career, spirituality, health, and relationships, so you can  live your purpose and be happy. It’s all about finding work you love, or learning to love the work you have. You don’t have to leave your 9-5 job to explore other career paths – there are always ways to find gratification.

EXERCISE:
ARE YOU CRAVING MOVEMENT? 
Stress, hard work, and lots of thinking create tension in the body, which can lead to chronic aches, tightness, and constipation. Many people try to alleviate these symptoms with alcohol and sugar, which ultimately worsen their unease and anesthetize  the body. Exercise is a great way to release built up physical tension. Developing a regular exercise program to suit your particular body type and lifestyle will have numerous rewards.  The challenge is to find the types of exercise you enjoy most,  and then build them into your life.

We have a philosophy about food—it’s that everything we consider as a source of nutrition is really just a secondary source of nourishment.

The foods you eat are secondary to all the other things that feed you—your relationships, career, spirituality, and exercise routine. Those are the things we call primary foods.

All that we consider today as nutrition is really just a secondary source of energy

My approach to Health Coaching life style transition is the Blood Type Diet.


Blood typing eliminates guess work.  Many wonder which lifestyle is best!

Everyone has blood. 

Holistic Health Coaching

Type B blood: Avoid corn, wheat, buckwheat, lentils, tomatoes, peanuts, and sesame seeds. Chicken is also problematic, D’Adamo says. He encourages eating green vegetables, eggs, certain meats, and low-fat dairy.

Type AB blood: Foods to focus on include tofu, seafood, dairy, and green vegetables. He says people with type AB blood tend to have low stomach acid. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and smoked or cured meats.Type your paragraph here.

Does It Work? One study found that adults eating the type A diet showed improved health markers, but this occurred in everyone, not just those with type A blood type. In 2013, a major review concluded that no evidence exists to support benefits of blood type diets. It’s likely that you would lose weight, though, because the diet can be very restrictive.Type your paragraph here.

Please think back to a time when you were passionately in love. Everything was exciting. Colors were vibrant. Intimacy was magical. Your lover’s touch and feelings of exhilaration sustained you. You were floating on air, gazing into each other’s eyes. You forgot about food and were high on life.Type your paragraph here.

What You Can Eat. That depends on your blood type. Here’s what D’Adamo recommends for each type:

Type O blood: A high-protein diet heavy on lean meat, poultry, fish, and vegetables, and light on grains, beans, and dairy. D’Adamo also recommends various supplements to help with tummy troubles and other issues he says people with type O tend to have.

Type A blood: A meat-free diet based on fruits and vegetables, beans and legumes, and whole grains — ideally, organic and fresh, because D’Adamo says people with type A blood have a sensitive immune system.Type your paragraph here.

Does It Allow for Dietary Restrictions or Preferences? Because the diet dictates that you eat very specific types of food based on your blood type, it doesn’t allow much for personal tastes. For example, if you’re a big fan of meat and potatoes, you won’t be very happy on the type A diet, which is mostly vegetarian. There are even recommendations about the types of spices and condiments you can use.Type your paragraph here.

Primary food is more than what is on your plate. Healthy relationships, regular physical activity, a fulfilling career and a spiritual practice can fill your soul and satisfy your hunger for life. When primary food is balanced and satiating, your life feeds you, making what you eat secondary. But what is primary food?

Remember when, as a child, you were playing outside, having fun? Suddenly, your mother announced dinner was ready, but you were not hungry at all. The passion of play took all your attention.

Sometimes we are fed not by food but by the energy in our lives. These moments and feelings demonstrate that everything is food.Type your paragraph here.
