The second month of 2020 is already upon us!!! Where has the time gone? I truly hope that this new year brings all of us plenty of interesting developments, exciting experiences and findings.
We all know that in order to enjoy life, to be alert, to be able to relax and be in top form for top performance, we need to be in good health. This means that we need to be able to switch from a state of stress, which, despite general opinion, is a state vital to survival and the achievement of goals, to a relaxed state, when we can enjoy the small things, wind down and restore our energy. The balance between being stressed and relaxed is very important. Only when we achieve this balance, will our level of adaptability be good enough to respond and adjust to the different external factors and stressors around us.
Interestingly, OUR LEVEL OF ADAPTABILITY TO STRESS AND, CONSEQUENTLY, OUR ABILITY TO RECOVER, HEAL AND REGENERATE DEPENDS ON OUR LEVEL OF INTERNAL ENERGY, WHICH IS PRODUCED BY MITOCHONDRIA.
The mitochondrion is an organelle that is present within all of our cells and produces energy. It is our “power station” on an individual cellular level. It has been estimated that a human body contains 10 million billion mitochondria! Wow, what a number! They are our batteries, providing us with the energy to live, perform, reproduce and create. This organelle has its own DNA and is of microbial origin. It is an astonishing thought, but a long time ago, mitochondria were independently living bacteria!
Mitochondria provide our cells with energy through a process called cellular respiration. Interestingly, if we should require more energy, the number of mitochondria will increase to meet our cell and body requirements. Of course, the quality of our life, our wellness and ability to recover and heal heavily rely on a sufficient level of energy. Therefore, OUR GOOD HEALTH DEPENDS ON THE HEALTH OF OUR MITOCHONDRIA, that support cellular communication and play a crucial role in the body’s ability to adapt to stress.
Research also shows that mitochondria play a role in a cell’s defence mechanism. When our bodies experience a major issue, such as a chronic disease, the mitochondria can switch from their roles as power stations to a specialised state to fight off the danger in question. In this case mitochondria produce much less energy so that the bug or virus (potential threats) can’t access that energy and use it against the body. This is why, when we are not well, we experience fatigue. The key thing, however, is when, for some reason, our mitochondria stay in this state; when the cell’s response to danger finds itself stuck in defence mode rather than its normal energy producing mode. In such cases we become unable to recover or heal effectively and are suddenly very vulnerable to any additional stressors.
The good news is, however, that NOW WE CAN MEASURE OUR BODIES’ ABILITIES TO ADAPT AND PRODUCE CELLULAR ENERGY. With the Heart Rate Variability (HRV) test, which takes no more than 5 minutes to undergo, you can find out if your body is operating at its optimal capacity and if it is able to regenerate, or if you perhaps need to be helping your body to improve its adaptability function.
The big question is HOW TO BOOST YOUR ENERGY AND OPTIMISE YOUR BODY’S ADAPTABILITY? There is no one simple answer, as the solution will always depend on your personal situation and your personal health conditions. However, very often people benefit from a personalised detoxification programme. Such a method allows us to get rid of many toxins that are blocking the metabolism, allows us to minimise the number of bad bacteria and yeast overgrowth interfering with our gut health, and it give us a healthy energy boost on a cellular level. Note that the level of detoxification needs to be carefully chosen as your body need to have enough energy and resources to go through the cleansing process.
This is why my colleague Masha Muzyrya, Holistic Coach and Energy therapist, and I, have decided to help you in this process and have organised a special TOTAL RESET RETREAT. It is so much better for you to experience this cleansing process together with others, rather than simply reading about it! It is an opportunity for you to be practical and to make visible progress in your wellness with the support of two professionals and a group of equally motivated individuals. Join us for a week-long holistic, science-based and fully guided programme of personalised detoxification, which will lead to sustainable and long-lasting improvements in your wellness.
