The Results are in, your health success formula is…
Are you ready for a new way of thinking about health?
The body is an ecosystem. Every cell has its own unique function and purpose. When one part of this system breaks down, it can affect every other part of the system. The key to optimal health is balance and harmony between all parts of your body’s ecosystem – from your gut to your immune system, from your brain to your heart.
Just like any society goods and products need to be transported around to get to the places where they are needed. It’s no different with humans. How substances move around the body is the focus of the transport core process.
The transport core process involves the circulatory system which consists of blood that is pumped by the heart through a network of arteries and veins and the lymphatic system which refreshes the blood. It’s the responsibility of the transport core process to take substances from one part of the body to another.
Imbalances in the proper functioning of the transport core process can cause a range of conditions. In the circulatory system these manifest as cardiovascular diseases.
What You Need to Know About Transport Systems…
What It Means
The primary area of focus for the biological process of transport is the circulatory and lymphatic systems.
The assimilation core process is fundamental to the overall health of humans. Poor digestive function and/or incomplete or ineffective assimilation can lead to nutritional insufficiency and deficiency.
A personalised therapeutic lifestyle programme has been demonstrated to be remarkably effective in improving the proper functioning of insulin and thus avoiding or reversing type 2 diabetes.
3 Actions to Support Your Transport Systems
Try 4-7-8 Breathing
Slow deep breaths help the blood vessels to dilate, lowers heart rate, and lowers blood pressure. Aim to complete four cycles of 4-7-8 breathing: Breathe in through your nose for 4 seconds, hold your breath for 7 seconds, breathe out through your mouth for 8 seconds. Repeat four times.
Lower Your Salt Intake
Lowering your salt intake by reducing or eliminating salt during the cooking process, as well as reducing the consumption of processed or packaged foods, can have a profound impact on blood pressure. Make an intentional effort to cut back on salt.
Exercise improves blood vessel function, insulin sensitivity, and nitric oxide levels. All of which are important in supporting healthy circulation and blood pressure. Aim to get 30 minutes of aerobic physical activity daily – so take a brisk walk, a bicycle ride or go hiking.
