Taking Your Own Health in Your Own Hands
It all started for Kristen Owens when she wasn’t feeling right in her early 20’s. Her doctor’s response? Drink some orange juice! Seriously?!
This began her journey to learning about different approaches to medicine, health, and feeling her best. It all started when she made the decision to take her health into her own hands, and the rest is history!
If you’re wanting to take your health into your own hands and start “aging backwards”, Kristen shares three main steps.
Assess your Health
Before doing anything, take a look inward. Assess your health. Have others assess your health and see where you are at in your wellness journey. This could include your stress levels, current diet, hormone levels, or anything in between. Seeking advice and assessing your health is the first step in understanding where you’re at and where you can go.
Decide to Commit
Once you understand where your issues and health struggles lie, make the decision that you are willing to adjust your diet and your habits in order to change your life for the better. Making the decision to commit is crucial in the process!
Every person is unique in their needs and challenges when it comes to their health and fitness journey. For some, they may need to prioritize their diet. For others, they may need to get to the root cause of their poor eating by eliminating stressors. No matter what it is, make the necessary adjustments, and you’ll start to see and feel the results.
Kristen Owens shares one of the biggest adjustments that needs to be made in the standard American diet is adding 7-13 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables per day. Whether it’s spinach or cauliflower in your smoothie or more salads, a plant-focused diet is crucial in most women’s journey to aging backwards.
If you’re already eating the right amount of fruits and veggies, you may want to consider going organic. Or you can look into avoiding certain toxins like the “dirty dozen” to avoid your toxic load. There are so many different ways you can adjust your diet and lifestyle. It’s important to figure out what you need!
