Embracing Prevention: A Holistic Approach to Health and Wellbeing

The Importance of Prevention

In our fast-paced world, it's incredibly typical for people to wait until there's an issue before taking action for their health. Pain and pleasure drive us, and without an immediate trigger, we often take for granted that our bodies are functioning well. However, even when everything seems fine, our bodies are continuously aging, and it's crucial to adopt preventive measures to maintain optimal health. At The Davina Liisa Method, our goal is to support you from a preventive angle, ensuring long-term health and well-being.

The Natural Aging Process

As we age, our bodies undergo numerous changes. Key molecules involved in redox signaling, such as reactive oxygen species (ROS) and nitric oxide, decrease by about 10% each decade. These molecules are vital for cellular communication, which keeps our systems functioning at their peak. Over time, environmental stressors, physical activity, and natural aging can diminish this cell signalling, leading to stiffer connective tissues, reduced oxygen and nutrient absorption, and slower waste removal.

Estrogen levels in women also naturally decrease each year, leading to lower energy levels, poor sleep, and weakened bone strength. This can trigger conditions like osteoporosis. The visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles, grey hair, and stiff joints, are just the surface. Internally, our organs, blood vessels, and cellular functions also slow down.

My Personal Journey

For years, I had no idea it was possible to take control of my health from the get-go. Exercise wasn't a part of my family culture, and I was overweight from a young age due to emotional eating. This path of detrimental habits eventually led to severe health issues. I suffered from tonsillitis, frequent colds, daily headaches, poor digestion, and severe acne during puberty. Debilitating sciatica plagued me for over 20 years. Like many, I only sought medical help when symptoms became unbearable, often resulting in medication and bed rest.

The wake-up call I needed came in the form of burnout. A critical moment arrived when I needed two blood transfusions due to dangerously low white blood cell levels. This was a stark reminder that my lifestyle was unsustainable. It was a blessing in disguise, pushing me to prioritize my health and well-being.

The Power of Prevention

Today, I prioritize my health and well-being through credible holistic methods. Five Element acupuncture rejuvenates my internal organs and removes accumulated blocks. Weekly treatments leave me feeling energized and relaxed, significantly reducing underlying stress and overwhelm.

In addition to acupuncture, I incorporate other preventive measures tailored to my needs: weekly strength training, rehabilitation Pilates, Wim Hof method breathing exercises, daily face and hand ice bath immersions, qigong, aromatherapy massage, physiotherapy, trips to the onsen, grounding practices, and a solid morning routine. Adequate rest, hydration, and nourishment are also key components of my routine.

Every morning, I start my day with two shots of ASEA Redox Cell Signaling Supplement. This groundbreaking dietary supplement supports cellular health and overall well-being by harnessing the power of redox signaling molecules. Prioritising my health may sound like an immense commitment, but over years of implementing empowered health routines, I see the results.

The Balance of Pleasure

While I prioritize my health, I also ensure to prescribe pleasure to myself. Enjoying indulgences like dark chocolate cake, a glass of wine, moorish buttery popcorn, and delicious coconut desserts in moderation is essential. Life is about creating harmony and taking care of ourselves with a smart and fun mindset. Moderation is key.
