Do You Know Your Weak Link?

The most intelligent way you can improve your health is to focus on the one area of your well being that you’ve neglected the most.

In natural health, it’s called the “weak link”, and this is really what’s holding you back.

Just like a group of people can only walk as fast as the slowest person in the group, your health can only be as good as your weakest link!

How do you find your weak link?

We are all complex individuals; learning natural health is essential because it shows you all the variables that can affect your health.

Forget about medicine or seeing a therapist at this point, they are not equipped to fully understand these issues because they don’t study them. It’s the work of Hygienists mainly, and some Naturopaths.

The good news is that it’s relatively easy to improve your health by focusing on those weak links first, instead of just trying to improve the one area you’ve always paid enough attention to.

To give you an example, my weak link for many years has been controlling my anxiety and stress levels. And I believe that not being able to manage these symptoms correctly in the past caused unwanted health issues I had to deal with, but since I’ve been paying more attention to these matters, my health and vitality have improved noticeably.

You can do the same too, and focus on your “weak” areas more.

Here are some of them:

– Diet and nutrition: are you eating a simple, low-fat, raw vegan diet? Or, at least, mostly raw?

– Exercise: are you following a comprehensive fitness program?

– Rest: Do you have enough time for rest and relaxation?

– Sleep: are you getting enough sleep?

– Emotional Poise: are you striving for emotional balance?

Once you’re clear about what your weak link is and take action to perfect those errors, everything becomes easier and your goal of achieving optimal health becomes possible.

    Hi Ariel
    I too struggle with anxiety.
    Some days I have so much energy its hard to place it because I am indoors when temps are too cold here in up-state NY.
    I exercise in my apartment but I miss walking outdoors..
    Im moving back to Hawaii, like I told u last year this July….yay!
    In the past 5 years my health has improved and I find myself at 65 years old wanting to go outside “and play”.
    I take ignatia amara..( homeopathic)
    It calms me when I feel anxious or stressed.
    I drink Chamomile tea..
    And take magnesiun and GABA before bed 3-5 nights a week to help me have a restful sleep.
    During the warmer months…Iam fine..
    I also take Vitamin D daily…3000 mg.

      Thanks for your comment Sabra. I am glad you are doing well. My very best wishes. 🙂

  2. This rings true for me. A weakest link. Something Id never thought of before. Thanku!

  3. You read my mind, Ariel. For the past couple of years, I’ve been focusing on optimizing my diet, but ironically it’s been at the expense of my sleep. I’ve been staying up too late to chop healthy foods and even to listen to podcasts on nutrition and health! Health is very much a balancing acting of the three-legged stool: food, sleep/rest & exercise. My Achille’s heal (or “weak link”) has always been that, once I start getting more energy from eating better, I tend to burn the candle at both ends since I love being active and learning. As I’ve gotten older though, I’ve experienced that getting good rest is a bigger factor than it used to be. Now I just need to prioritize getting good sleep as much as I prioritize eating good food!
