Diet Praxis Philosophy

Diet Praxis is based on the Pythagorean philosophy and Hippocrates medicine. Our team primarily focuses in empowering people to be responsible of their own health, with regards to their daily habits. In our daily life we face various stressful and difficult situations that often lead to loss of our health maintenance and disease management. For instance, a stressful exhausting job, financial issues and lack of sleep, can all contribute to a mental or physical illness.

Diet Praxis follows a holistic approach with its priority being the maintenance of health and stress management.

 ABOUT STRESS

Got stress? Of course you do! Stress can kill. We all know that stress is bad for us. It might surprise you to learn that the chronic stress is the culprit for metabolic disturbances, tissue breakdown and chronic diseases. There are various kinds of stresses, but the one thing they all have in common is that it is always about survival. Stress is classified as a stress when it impacts our survival capacity in some way.

Let’s define 5 major stress categories:

  1. Physical survival or basic life needs: enough food, shelter, clothing, money to get by. Very basic survival needs.
  2. Biochemical stress: sleep deprivation, hormone imbalances, malnutrition and malabsorption, drugs and too much caffeine or stimulants.
  3. Mental: work commitments, deadlines, constant work pressure, running away or avoiding work related confrontations, dealing with bosses and executives or study/exam pressure, over thinking, over analyzing. Many people experience this stress all the time.
  4. Environmental stress: noise pollution and chemical toxicity from environment or sudden chemical toxicity such as mercury leakage from amalgam fillings or inhaling paint fumes.
  5. Emotional stress: anything to do with any relationship, human connectedness, family, self worth etc., love and bonding.

Out of all the stress categories, the Mental and Emotional stresses create the most havoc in your mind/body system with debilitating symptoms particularly if the stress is prolonged.

SO DOES STRESS HAVE TO DO WITH CHRONIC FATIGUE?

Absolutely! According to Dr. Hans Selye, also known as the ‘father of stress response because he was the first medical doctor to elaborate on the GAS (General Adaptation Syndrome) response, ongoing stress leads to Chronic Fatigue and if not deal with, complete adrenal failure and heart failure can be the result. Every stress leaves an indelible scar, and the organism pays for its survival after a stressful situation by becoming a little older,” says Dr. Hans Selye.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ANY FORM OF STRESS IMPACTS YOUR LIFE?

Stage 1: Alarm Reaction known as ‘fight or flight’. In this stage your body is geared to ward off the impacting stress which could be anything or anyone, including our loved ones, any pressures for our time, money or love and challenges to our identity in any way. In this stage, the body is alarmed by the stressors and mounts an aggressive anti-stress response to reduce stress levels. Some doctors call this the Early Fatigue stage.

Stage 2: Resistance Response. This is where the stress goes for some days, weeks, even months. In this hyper vigilant state, the body is resisting the ongoing stress but at the expense of the adrenal glands over-pumping the stress hormones (cortisol – adrenaline).

Stage 3: Exhaustion. When the resistance stage goes on for longer than the body can physically cope with, exhaustion sets in after one or two years. In this stage, people normally start to experience Fibromyalgia, aches/pains, back-ache, muscle tension, severely suppressed immune system and muscle weakness. Many experience sluggishness and weight gain.

Stage 4: Failure. After a couple of years of over-pumping stress hormones daily, eventually, the adrenal glands become totally exhausted. People at this stage have a high chance of cardiovascular collapse, nervous breakdown, and according to Dr. Selye — total collapse, even death. So, when you are stressed, your adrenal glands produce cortisol in excess. Cortisol is also known as the death hormone, because it is highly toxic and catabolizes (literally tears down) muscle mass for energy, your organs, diminishes your strength and your speed of recovery and makes people unable to cope with daily life. Adrenal fatigue also known as Chronic Fatigue occurs when the amount of stress exceeds the capacity of the body to recover from the stressful challenges.

BELOW IS THE LIST OF STRESSFUL CHALLENGES IS ENDLESS, INCLUDING:

  • lack of sleep
  • a demanding boss
  • the threat of losing your job
  • financial pressures
  • personality conflicts
  • yo-yo dieting
  • relationship turmoil
  • death or illness of a loved one
  • skipping meals
  • reliance on stimulants like caffeine and starchy carbs
  • digestive problems
  • over-exercise
  • illness or infection
  • unresolved emotional issues from our past or present

The result is adrenal glands that are constantly on high alert!!!!!

THESE ARE COMMON SYMPTOMS THAT ARE DIRECTLY RELATED TO STRESS:

  • Weight gain around the waist and inability to lose it.
  • Regular bouts of colds/flu and other respiratory ailments.
  • Reduced sex drive.
  • Poor memory
  • Lack of energy in the mornings and also in the afternoon between 3 to 5 pm.
  • Need coffee or stimulants to get going in the morning.
  • Pain in the upper back or neck with no apparent reasons
  • Mild depression
  • Food allergies
  • Increased effort to perform daily tasks
  • Dry and thin skin
  • Hypoglycemia – low blood sugar
  • Nervousness
  • Palpitations
  • Unexplained hair loss

Every challenge to the mind and body creates a demand on the adrenal glands by secreting stress hormones, one of which is cortisol and when the levels are in excess it literally destroys the body.

MIND/SPIRIT

The spirit or God’s Breath is the vital force of our world; it’s a vibrant purpose which makes our lives meaningful. We take it from the sun and the universe through the lung. It keeps our body sparkly and lively. Stress makes body losing its vitality and livens, as well as the ability to follow spirit’s vibration.

The mind from the other hand is powerful and can create health or disease. Oftentimes, your state of mind affects your health and well being. Unresolved emotional issues and harmful beliefs stored as internal negative thoughts in the subconscious mind present roadblocks in your life. We are here to help guide you to radiant health and a happy, mindful life. Learning your authentic core values is the first step to remaining young and disease-free. Walking on the path of self-awareness is the key to attaining the transformational shifts you seek. The therapies offered at Diet Praxis can help guide you on your journey.

BODY

The human body is an amazing living organism made up of one hundred trillion cells, which has its own needs in nutrition, stimulation, rest, hydration and a clean environment. Also, many interconnected complex systems that all work together synergistically to unite the mind, body and spirit as one. These systems are all vital to health and wellbeing. If one system becomes out of balance, other systems in the body begin to compensate. Over time, this throws the body out of alignment, oftentimes resulting in a decline in overall health. The body therapies offered at Diet Praxis provide ways to nurture your body to connect, correct, self-heal, and move toward and maintain optimal health, so it will flourish.
