  • Why cultivate longevity anyways?

Last updated on February 22, 2021

Like most of us today, you probably have to search hard to find even a little bit of time in your day, just find little little time to nourish your body and mind.

“Your time is precious”

Most likely, you are also looking for simple and effective answers on how you can improve your health and the health of your loved ones.

This is exactly why I created this site

The truth is, we are caught up in one massive health crisis. With chronic degenerative diseases on the rise.

Here in the United States, we still continue to spend massive amounts of money on traditional healthcare and prescription drugs.

In addition, far to many of us still turn to mainstream medicine to take care of an increasing epidemic that won’t get healed by always treating the symptoms and not penetrating to the root cause of the problem.

Now, I’m not totally against Western medicine. I have seen first hand what it’s capable achieving because a close loved one of mine, spent almost two decades in and out this revolving door.

Yet, I feel there is so much more we can do, on a daily basis, to take care of and nourish our mind and body.

Things like practicing like Yoga, Qigong, and meditation are all great ways to keep the body supple and sharp.

Or, learning about the wonderful world of herbal remedies for prevention, and the potent effects that lacto-fermented foods can have on our inner ecology.

My mission is to provide you with a truly valuable and uplifting health and wellness resource that’s well researched and jam packed full of tips and tricks that you can easily integrate into your day.

First off, a little about me. My name is Dale Hoskins and I love to investigate, learn and share everything about natural foods and the healing arts.

Years ago, after my first Yoga cIass, I was totally hooked and I decided to embark on a 9 month intensive training and have never looked back.

My life really took a massive turn when I experienced the incredibly powerful effects that highly nutritious food had in on my entire physiology.

In my early twenties, I was introduced to the world of holistic health and natural healing. For me, it was like a light bulb that went off in my head, It totally made sense to me.

See, I was raised on a typical American diet, lots of meat and potatoes, frozen pizza’s and soda pop, this was the norm throughout my entire childhood.

I can still remember coming inside from playing outside and my mom giving me a fresh cup of bubbling pepsi to drink. I used to love how the fizz and carbonation felt going down my throat.

And, after years of battling with constipation and severe annoying digestive issues, I knew deep down something needed change. It even got to the point where I could hardly even think straight. My mind felt totally out of whack.

It wasn’t until I started to connect the dots and began to realize that what goes in my mouth has a direct effect on my entire body and state of mind.

I discovered that the digestive tract is responsible for nearly 75 percent of the bodies health and well-being.

I found, If I continue to eat chips and drink soda pop every day I’m gonna feel like crap and my energy is gonna crash from all the sugar. Not to mention how bad the hydrogenated oils are that the chips are fried with.

It starts with Healthy Nutrient Absorption in The Gut

The digestive system, more commonly called the (Gut) which comprises nearly 3-5 pounds of microscopic microbes that form our gut microbiome, literally trillions of living organisms all amassed together, always striving for unity and collaboration.

Think of all these organisms like another part of the family

The gut and it’s microscopic inhabitants are responsible for our metabolism, digestion and absorption of vitamins, minerals and nutrients.

It works closely with every single cell in the body. This is where your body gets most of its vital energy from.

If your gut is out of balance you may begin to feel sluggish and fatigued. Your mind won’t function properly and may have a negatively affect on your health and overall wellbeing.

Simply put, if your body is not absorbing minerals and nutrients from the food that you eat it will develop deficiencies and over time, will disrupt the natural balance and equilibrium of your body.

Here’s the kicker, research suggests that nearly 70-80% of the immune system is interconnected with the digestive tract meaning it works to keep the entire body in balance and harmony.

Balance Your Diet With Whole Foods And Healthy Fats”

I believe the foundation for a wonderful life is begins with a balanced, minimally processed diet based on whole foods and healthy fats.

Strive for a rainbow of colors on your plate and always try to introduce new and different foods into the diet. I feel this is extremely important because it reduces the possibility of mineral and nutrient deficiency.

And always try to eat food as fresh as possible, prepared in the most peaceful way.

There’s no need to count calories (which is boring), instead just focus on high quality nutritious food that feels good inside the belly!

With that said, I believe that there’s no one ideal diet for everyone.

What works for one person may not be the best fit for you or me. We are all made differently in our own unique way.

For instance, some people are sensitive to nightshade vegetables and others aren’t. Some people cannot process gluten, and some people can with ease. What you eat will vary depending on your unique goals, and individual problems and needs.

Unleash The Power Of Movement

Good food is only part of the puzzle.  It’s absolutely vital to find time for good quality movement every single day of the week.

Moving the body is the secret to tapping into an endless stream of powerful energy inside the body. There’s literally a fountain of youth, an elixir of life that is literally activated when we mix high quality, nutritious, living food with healing movement.

As you begin to slowly build what I call a “wellness portfolio”, you will start to experience the synergistic effect that these natural remedies and healing practices have on your entire body and mind. I promise.
