Healthy Body

The miraculous systems of our body are pictured below. Our body systems are very closely interconnected and work synergistically with each other. Here’s a few examples.

• Your digestive health directly impacts your immune system and visa versa; approximately 70% of your immune system is actually located in your digestive system and depends on prebiotics and probiotics to give it a boost.

• Because the digestive system takes in most of the nutrients our bodies need to function properly, it directly affects every body system.

• The lymphatic system is our bodies flushing system and also works closely with the immune system. It relies on bone marrow to produce lymphocytes and the muscular system to keep it circulating since it does not have its own pump.

• The integumentary system (our skin) takes in Vitamin D which is important for healthy bones.

• The urinary system helps regulate the flow of fluid, helping to control blood pressure which is very important for the cardiovascular system. This system also helps get rid of waste products in the blood.

• The nervous system controls all of the messages that are sent to the other systems to keep them working flawlessly together. It is highly impacted by the digestive system and what we eat (or don’t eat).

• The endocrine system (hormones) works closely with the reproductive system and plays a role in growth and development of the brain, regulating sugar in a our blood, emotional health, and sleep, just to name a few.

When we have all of these systems working together flawlessly we are in optimal health. Most of us do not consider ourselves in that "optimal health" category and those who are, know that it is a journey that requires lifestyle changes and long term maintenance. And, they also know that it is well worth the effort to have optimal health, wellness and vitality!

If you have not reached this point, this may seem a monumental task. Over the next few weeks and months try to take this overwhelming task and break it down into results oriented doable pieces. Contact a Healthy Connections team member to discuss ways for you to start with one or two body systems that you feel will give you the most benefit in improving your wellness. You will be surprised at how even small changes can affect your overall vitality.

As you take a look at the different body systems below there are a wide selection of Young Living essential oils and oil-infused products that are supportive to those body systems; take note of the products that resonate the most with you. We are encouraging a healthy lifestyle and not touting a magic pill that will cure all of your woes, those plain and simple do not exist. What will ultimately take us to optimal health is to intentionally improve the different areas of our life: physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually etc.; the only true way to get there is one step at a time. We are never too young or too old to add some healthy routines to our lives!
