Health optimisation is about moving from the paradigm of focusing on not being sick to being truly well. It’s about making sure that everything is functioning in the way that it best can so that life is easy and you can get the best out of yourself.
If we have a spectrum of health and at one end is death and the other end is your most well self, then sickness falls somewhere in the middle. Most of us are accustomed to getting just beyond sickness and calling that health, but that’s not true – that’s just the absence of sickness.
Health Optimisation is something wherein there are common rules that we can all learn from and if we apply common principles we can get more out of ourselves. There are also things we need to learn about our individual self and what’s right for us because we are all biochemically unique.
For those who are wanting to step up their game and get the most out of themselves so that they can have the most fulfilled life this is where we help them figure out what works for them and what doesn’t.
Most often for people who are high performers who want to fall into this category the impression is that to optimise takes an awful lot of time. Our particular expertise is in being able to make optimal health work on a practical level within people’s lives and help them understand which parts are important.
For most people who are tuned in to their health we tend to lean in on a particular pathway so if you’re already great at exercise and diet those will be the things you will most likely be paying the most attention to. Remember though, that these are only two of the important elements of health so we optimise and tune in more and more to refine how the other elements are reflected in the whole health picture. Often there are blind spots that we just don’t see that are important to our overall optimal health like destress and sleep. Optimal health is, of course, about balance.
We teach people how to have balance and where to spend their energy so that you get 80% of your results from spending 20% of your energy instead of trying to get the last few percent out of your diet. It’s about addressing the things that haven’t been addressed and bringing things into balance so that everything runs smoothly.
