Wellness - Many Pieces, One beautiful Puzzle
A Different View of Wellness
- Wellness is individual.
- Wellness takes time.
At Redeeming Health, we look at each person as unique, with a different set of genetic and lifestyle factors to take into account (food choices, stress, environmental exposures, health history, etc). We call this “bio-individuality.” Each client will have tailored recommendations with bio-individuality as a foundation.
Our culture is accustomed to getting things fixed quickly. And we bring that expectation to our health as well. A life-long marathon would be a more accurate view of our health. Every choice we make impacts the quality of that marathon. It either strengthens us, or it depletes our energy. But, how can we know what strengthens or depletes us? SpectraVision!
To support your health goals during your wellness marathon we will look at several areas in more detail: food, hydration, lifestyle, mineral balance, supplementation, sleep, detoxification, unnecessary body stressors, etc. Each piece playing an important role in our overall wellness puzzle.
Bioindividual Wellness Planning - Hydration, Food, Digestion, Detox, Sleep, Lifestyle Stress
Hydration & Food
We encourage you to look at food and
water differently. We’ve all heard that we
need to drink water, right? It is now well known that stress
depletes our bodies of essential minerals, draining our energy
down to the cellular level. We’d like to help you take action
steps to replace those minerals, keeping your electrolytes
balanced to fully reap the benefits of drinking water.
Look at food as more than your body’s fuel,
look at food as medicine!
You are what you eat and what your body can
properly digest. Are there foods that cause a
stress response in your body? If so, we’d
recommend removing that food from your diet
for a time. Are there foods with certain
nutrients that would help support your body
right now? If so, we’d recommend eating more
of those foods for a season.
But, how to know which minerals or foods
deplete or strengthen you individually?
Healthy food doesn’t have to taste bland or
look boring. Let’s be honest, some “health food”out there tastes like sand paper! Nutrient dense whole foods are amazing when seasoned well, using fresh herbs and other seasonings.

Digestion and Detoxification are two very important pieces of
the wellness puzzle. Together they take into account what
goes in and what goes out of our
bodies. We need both to happen
efficiently for optimal wellness -
nutrients in and toxins out. Food
and nutrition come down not
only to what we eat, but ultimately
to what we can digest and absorb.
And, with toxins, it's not just about
how our bodies can better eliminate
toxins, but how we avoid them in
the first place.
Stress plays a role in how well we digest. Exercise plays a role in how well we detoxify. Do you see how wellness is a puzzle with many interconnected pieces? The more effective we can be with each piece, the more our overall well-being will be affected. This can be overwhelming. Remember, each step in the right direction is a positive move forward along your wellness journey.
Detox & Digestion
Sleep & Lifestyle Stress
A huge piece of the wellness puzzle is Sleep and Intentional Rest. For most of us this is a difficult piece to
juggle with the demands of life. But the truth is, if we
don't rest, our bodies cannot repair.
If our bodies cannot repair, our
health only gets worse.
Ideally, as adults we would all be in
bed by 10:00pm and sleep a
minimum of 7 hours. But, that
would require us turning off our
televisions and computers, and
putting down our cell phones.
Sleep and Rest take a conscious choice.
In addition, our bodies need more "rest" than just while we sleep at night. The more we can slow down during the day, taking brief breaks, the better our bodies function. Whether at work, home, or school, taking intentional breaks to do something you enjoy can have lasting benefits. Consider reading for fun, talking about non-essentials with your spouse, taking on a hobby, playing with your children, exercising in a beneficial way, going out with a friend,
closing your eyes for
20 minutes, or simply sitting
and enjoying nature.
Be intentional, your choices really do matter.
Here at Redeeming Health we desire to see you achieve the best possible life you were created to live. All the pieces of this vast puzzle can be frustrating to understand until they are put together to reveal the beautiful picture they were meant to be. Let us help you put the pieces together.
