Health Information Overload!

Are you struggling from health information overload syndrome? Not knowing what to do?? Sometimes it can feel like you are swimming in a vast ocean of wellness information. Each day, a new “miracle” diet or supplement promises to be the answer to your problem. Trying to figure out what you should do can be exhausting and confusing.

The overload of information has not empowered us to be the healthiest society. Instead, quite the opposite is true: people in general are more stressed, overweight and suffering from more chronic stress-related disease than our “less-informed” ancestors.Sometimes more information isn’t what you need.

Too much health and wellness information can lead to anxiety, confusion, and lack of motivation to follow any of the advice, which is often conflicting. Ultimately, this information overload is doing us more harm than good. Work, food, stress, exercise, and yes, even information, are better in smaller packages.

What people really need is customized guidance. We know everyone should eat real food, walk more, get your hormones balanced, manage stress, eliminate known toxins, and get good quality sleep. But what does that look like for you specifically?? And, for those who have specific health complaints, finding the right advice gets more tricky. There are lots of great programs out there, and there is more than one path to ultimate health. The good news is you don’t have to learn them all. All you need is proper guidance to find the path that you need to take to get where you desire.

The first step is figuring out exactly where you are in relation to where you want to be. Perhaps you have tried to identify this on your own. After all, you know how you are feeling, and you can explain your symptoms. Symptoms like fatigue, irritability, depression, digestive issues, weight gain, skin rashes, insomnia, headaches, joint pain, brain fog, and low libido. But, truly understanding the cause of your symptoms takes expertise.

Typically people first see their regular physician and this is an important step to ensure you have no major illnesses. Tragically, once those things are ruled out you may be told that you are fine. You are not “fine” if you are having symptoms.

With lethal illness and major health complications ruled out, the real work can begin. The vast majority of people with symptoms sadly stop here and do not realize that more can be done.

A program that might work for one may not work for the other two. One person might be suffering from a candida overgrowth, another might have a thyroid condition, the third might have low Testosterone, a fourth may have a heavy metal toxicity, and a fifth person may have past emotional trauma, all five presenting with very similar symptoms but having different causes. Identifying and understanding the dysfunction and imbalances causing these symptoms is essential when creating an effective health-building plan. Each individual must start their health journey from a very different place and needs a customized route to lead them to optimal health.

Your health is your most important asset, and you don’t want to lose it. The Optimal Wellness Network was created for this reason. We pinpoint your true starting point, identify healing opportunities, and ultimately guide you on the correct path to “Optimal Wellness.”

Lifestyle clues like eating and sleeping habits, work schedules, activity levels, family life and hobbies, as well as, hormonal balance, immune health, digestion, detoxification, environmental stressors, neurotransmitter functioning, and health history all play a part in understanding how your body functions.

As in any journey, there are bound to be some detours, distractions, and unexpected roadblocks. As you set out on your journey to optimal health, some roads may be paved and clear, while others can be rocky and littered with obstacles. You might also encounter unexpected hazards, accidents, or road closures along the way. We are prepared to guide you through these barriers. Achieving Optimal Wellness takes desire and patience, and it will be achieved with the help of your wellness team and customized plan.

So feel free to tune out, turn off, and unplug the endless flow of internet health information. The odds of you finding your way to optimal health are much better when you search within yourself and seek customized help, rather than searching online by yourself. This is true whether you are having symptoms or if you are just looking for the best ways to stay healthy and vital for many years.
