The two most powerful warriors are patience and time!

“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” – Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

We live in a time where instant gratification is not only sought-after but expected, a time where Tolstoy’s words could not be more relevant.

Especially when it comes to our health.

We all know that chronic illness and disease accumulate over time, and instead of turning to options that treat the symptoms, it’s time for us to embrace the age-old virtue of patience.

Everyone is busy – everyone’s time is valuable. How do people do it? It feels like every one of us at one point has experienced that old “hamster wheel” effect of being constantly on the move but not achieving a great deal. Meanwhile, our mental and physical health is deteriorating.

So when a headache strikes, we reach for a tablet. When exhaustion strikes, we reach for a tablet. When aches or pains strike, we reach for a tablet. No-one gifts themselves the time in their day anymore to stop and understand the cause of their symptoms. And when these symptoms manifest into illness or disease we reach for the closest, most accessible and instantly effective options.

PSA – more often than not, these aren’t the solutions to our problems.

Biology 101

We’ve talked about how our bodies battle a multitude of toxins daily – pathogens, viruses and bacteria move rapidly, wreaking havoc. This is the underlying reason we want you to focus on the importance of thinking about healing at a cellular level.

(It sounds scientific – but all this means is making sure your cells are healthy!)

Our cells are what make up the tissues of our bodies – the smallest biological unit that can survive on its own. Sounds important when considering your general health, right?

Most of the challenges we face when it comes to health have been developing over time. All of us are exposed daily to chemicals and toxins – but pause for a moment and consider other factors.

Do you smoke?
Do you drink?
What does your diet consist of? (Think – refined oils, inflammatory foods, chemicals)
Do you work in an office environment? An aircraft? Outdoors?
Are you feeling stressed, anxious, exhausted?
Do you have a family history, or have you directly experienced major illness or disease? Have you had to undergo surgery? Are you already compromised IE leaky gut?
Do you exercise? Do you use saunas or other health-targeted activies?

There are endless variables that need to be considered when you stop to consider your general health – we all know this already. What we might not think about is the weight our answers have on the best options we can take.

None of which are going to be quick-fix.

Fear of commitment

Pausing to think about the cause of our health issues rather than reaching for the simplest symptom-eliminator is a massive commitment.

We recognise that. It’s hard. Sometimes it’s time-consuming. Sometimes it’s accepting that our habits and routines need to change and that’s daunting. We get it.

What we need to do is become accountable to ourselves and understand that the pathway to optimal health is a long one. We need to release ourselves from the mentality (that we are conditioned to accept) that when we feel bad, we can just pop a pill and get on with it.

Don’t we owe it to ourselves?

Have we met? Vesuvio – please to meet you.

Every day we are asked by our community how long it takes to see results.

We can’t answer that question. Consider what we’ve talked about today – there are so many factors in play that it’s impossible to provide any definitive advice to any individual.

But at the end of the day – that’s what we are about. Guiding and helping you toward jumping out of bed in the morning, smiling during the day and embracing whatever life throws your way.

While we can’t explicitly advise you on a wellness timeline, we can comfortably tell you: we know you will feel better within one week, even better still within two. Better than you have felt in a long time; and that should be reason enough to encourage you to pursue this journey and discover how this can completely change your life. Read that again – change your life.

Our offering exists to give you the leg-up you might need to get things on track, commit to your health and ultimately become the best version of yourself.
