    Most people who say they want to improve their health are either talking about weight loss, dieting or exercise. They believe one click of a button on their computers for the latest health fad product will solve any health concerns they may have at the moment. They rarely consider how their own mindset might figure into their overall health. At some point, though, everyone realizes that health is all-inclusive. Everything you are and every aspect of your being makes up the total picture of your overall wellness. Here are some other areas to consider boosting aside from your physical health.

    Mental and Spiritual Health

    It does not matter how physically fit you become, at some point, you will need to focus inward to make sure you are strong enough to handle any stresses, insecurities, or shortcomings you may have as a person. Everyone has some dark river to cross, and the longer you avoid taking the necessary trip across the river, the more likely the physical gains you have made with improving your body will begin to fade. You are a whole person, not a one-dimensional prototype. The best version of yourself is confidence, growth-minded and ready to take on each new challenge as a learning opportunity.


    Because no one exists in the world alone, good relationships are vital to good health. If you are completely healthy, you have surrounded yourself with healthy people who bring healthy energy to your circle. Choosing to spend less time with those who are negative and promote negative behaviors in both you and themselves is a first step toward self-love. It does not mean you love them any less. It means you are surrounding yourself with the positive energy you need to live a good life.

    Business and Career

    Of course, all of this feeds into your career path. If you are doing well in personal relationships and are very well-grounded in your own spirituality, you are better equipped to succeed in the business world than those who are not so grounded. You are always on a path, and everything you choose is connected to your own good health.

    When you realize that everything about you is connected, your life becomes a daily journey toward the best parts of yourself. You cannot compartmentalize emotional pain, for example, in order to be successful in your career. That pain drives you, and when you deal with it honestly, it has the potential to guide your good health and transform your life.

    There are some tests that need to be completed as soon as possible so that you know the results in order to begin dealing with the health issue at hand. ELISA kits are associated with a test that examines the immuno assay. In short, it is used to detect antibodies that might be present in the body. This is a way to see if there is any kind of illness so that medications can be started.

    Most of the antibodies that are in the body are due to infectious diseases. Some of the illnesses that this kind of test is used to diagnose are HIV, Lyme disease, rotavirus and the virus that causes chicken pox. If this test weren’t available, then parents might not get the diagnosis for their children if they have an illness. The results from the test are often seen very quickly so that the doctor can determine the best course of treatment. Once medication is started, then the person can begin to feel better and defeat the antibodies that are in the system. The test is often done by drawing blood with the sample sent to a laboratory. The person looking at the sample will check to see if there are enzymes present.

    My youngest daughter could not recognize her daddy when we showed her a picture I took with him 20 years ago. I guess that’s because in the picture, his huge belly was missing and his face shape was very much sharper.  When I was dating hubby, he was slim, trim and very fit. He was very active in sports and well, he still is, especially in basketball BUT his weight has shot sky high over the years. Now, he has what the Chinese call a ‘prosperous look’, which is the more polite way of calling someone fat. Being in the food business has opened the door for him to eat, eat and eat. Though he has told me umpteen times that he wanted to go on a diet and shed some weight, his weight-loss plan has always never been accomplished. He would go to the gym or go swimming diligently for a week or two and then his mission will be truncated when work / business gets in his way.

    If only he could be as disciplined and persistent as I am when it comes to exercising and on the choice of food, I am very sure he can get rid of the excess baggage around his waist. Recently, I found out that my man can look trimmer if he wears a Core Precision Undershirt and underwear by Equmen. This specially designed undershirt, underwear and Precision Long Trunks  support and enhance a man’s posture and physical appearance, thus giving the man a more ‘tailored’ appearance. The special garment will help men stand up straighter, look slimmer and feel better. This undershirt is also great for back pain sufferers. It is an all-in-one special garment with built-in physiotherapy! The underwear also has compression technology, supporting the wearer’s muscles and making him look and feel better. Equmen can be worn under a business suit, casual wear and sports wear. An Equmen undershirt will definitely be a very handy birthday present for my man!

    This is a model wearing an Equmen undershirt.  IF only my man can achieve this figure!!
