Wholeness and the 9 Laws of Health
Designed more amazingly than any other known piece of machinery, the human body was designed to function according to very specific principles. We call them the laws of life. We believe that health is a byproduct of living according to the physiological laws of life. These are immutable laws that govern how we live and how the universe functions. Through the systematic study of life—otherwise known as science—we understand that these laws cannot be broken. They simply explain how life works.
When you learn these laws, you will find that there are simple things that we all can do to improve your health, prevent chronic and infectious diseases, heal from trauma, and learn to live the life you love with WHOLENESS.
W- Water Intake
Drinking purified, filtered water is one of the easiest ways to improve your health. Drinking enough water has been found to improve risk of heart attack and stroke, improve joint pain, and improve organ function. Drink water first thing in the morning and throughout the day, and not at meals so you don’t dilute hydrochloric acid. Unpurified water may contain fluorine, chlorine, and even residues of pharmaceutical drugs, so make sure you invest in good water purification. A rule of thumb: divide your weight in pounds in half, and drink that many ounces of water daily.
H - Habits
Poor habits like smoking, drinking alcohol and coffee, and irregular hours of resting and eating are very easy ways to dysregulate the clock genes that all of our cells have and to cause disease. It is important to have regularity in your daily activities (regular times to eat, sleep, and work) and to make a habit of avoiding addictive substances. HOW to go about doing this is just as important as LEARNING the information that you need to make the right changes. We can help!
O - Oxygen
This law of health is so important on so many levels—yet so neglected. We can’t tell you how many of our clients and patients are unaware of their poor oxygenation at night, whether it is from heavy snoring or actual apneic events—both are bad for health. It puts you in sympathetic mode for your body to feel like you are about to die many times a night and you will never be truly healthy. There are things that you can do to improve your oxygenation at night and you should explore these options! Also, we are all indoors way too much. It is important to get outside for fresh air on a daily basis. Practice having good posture and good breathing practices to fully expand your lungs. Just learning how to breathe properly has helped many people recover from serious health conditions!
L - Love
Examine your relationship with yourself, with God, and with others. Consider how you handle stress and if you struggle with bitterness, resentment, or fear. Do you have any traumatic events in your life that still cause you to react with raw emotions? If unaddressed, these unhealed wounds will continue to cause symptoms, whether you are aware of it or not. Autoimmune disease and cancers have been linked to emotional wounds in our lives. Emotional wounds can be healed!
E - Environment
Do you have mold in your home? Have you been paying attention to the ingredients in your cleaning supplies or even your cosmetics? How about your food? Toxins, molds, and heavy metals have an even more powerful impact on chronic disease than nutrition. Let’s learn what they are and learn how to mitigate their sources of entry into your life!
N - Nutrition
Food is such an important subject for us to consider. Did you know that there are diets that can significantly increase your risk of developing serious life threatening infections and diets that can decrease that risk? According to one large multi-country study, plant based diets were found to decrease risk for developing Covid 73% compared to to a nonvegetarian diet in a recent BMJ article. Perhaps it is not just the nutrients that these foods have that one should consider, but also the inflammation that these foods may cause or relieve, since inflammation is at the root of all of our chronic disease. Today, many people are not only sensitive to known toxins and poisons, some are sensitive to foods that we would think of as being “healthy”.
Whether you have digestive issues or chronic disease without any digestive symptoms, you may have leaky gut and food sensitivities, which can manifest very differently for different people. Learn more about how to eat to heal the gut and optimize your immune system in our online program, The Autoimmune Recovery Plan. Whether it is rheumatoid, lupus, eczema, kidney failure, ALS, myasthenia gravis, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, arthritis, or cancer that you are suffering from, this plan can help calm down the inflammatory process and give your immune system what it needs to help you find health again.

E - Excercise
We all know that exercise helps us lose weight and look great, but did you know that something as simple as getting 30 minutes of exercise a day can help decrease risk of dementia, macular degeneration, and a host of other diseases? Consistent exercise decreases risk of hospitalization and death from infectious diseases. Exercise doesn’t have to be wildly strenuous. Even walking is helpful. If you’re in a bad mood, taking just a ten-minute walk can drive those blues away and bring back a smile. Not moving is just as bad for your health as smoking cigarettes, as far as risk of shortening your life is concerned. So let’s get out there and move that body!
S - Sleep
In regards to fighting infections, sleeping less than 5 hours increases risk of succumbing to infection 360% compared to sleeping at least 7 hours a night. Adequate rest and sleep is a law of health that most of us ignore; chronic lack of sleep is something that many adults are suffering from.
Isn’t it ironic that the one thing that you need to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for, is something so difficult to do? That is human nature for you—it is hard for us to let go, relax, and sleep. And once we do get into bed, problems like insomnia, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, and GERD, just to name a few, cause us to have poor sleep quality. These are multifaceted problems and there is no one medication that can help with the complexity of the issue. BUT, making lifestyle and dietary changes will treat the problem with a multifaceted approach.

S - Sunshine
Sunshine is something that is rather controversial today. Most people will not get into the sun without layers of sunblock slathered all over themselves. Is this truly the best option for us? Were humans truly meant to avoid the sun? Is it possible that this sun avoidance may actually be causing you more harm than good?
We actually recommend that you:
- Expose a large part of your body to sunshine for about 30 minutes daily
- Avoid sunburn by turning back and forth every 5 minutes.
- Avoid use of lotions and creams in order for more effective vitamin D production on skin.
