There’s no doubt one of the biggest advantages of having these range of blogs together is that they do look at life’s challenges as well as just physical wellness. The blog from “Soul Dancer” on weight-loss and self image is a perfect example. Being overweight obviously has physical symptoms and can lead to additional health concerns, but so often the reasons people eat to excess are to do with their psyche and self-esteem. To conquer weight problems Soul Dancer draws on both his personal insight from his own weight loss journey- he lost more than 100 pounds - and from dietary advice.
Soul talks about how he soon came to associate food with love in one of his blogs, yet in others, he explains the simple benefits of drinking water, and also how to work on your self-image with friends. This mix of practical advice and psychology puts it way above most blogs on the subject, and the approach of helping mind and body is one that in synonymous with the spirit of createyourhealth.
Other blogs also combine lifestyle and health advice in different ways. Holly Gonzalez’s blog Holistic Nutrition is another useful blog that hands out practical advice into how you can feel better using simple and realistic methods. Her post on 5 tips to Instantly Boost your Energy are simple, cheap, effective and things that can be put into action without radically altering lifestyles. It is the perfect kind of advice where you go “how obvious is that” - but only AFTER you read it.
The world of medicines and drugs is a frightening one when you look closely. If you’ve wondered whether or not everything you are told about medicine is true, then Dr.Leyla Ali’s blog, Pharmacy, The Dark Side is a valuable blog about some of the most important, but least publicized information about what the drug companies don’t want you to know. Leyla talks from a perspective on the inside, as a pharmacist, and her work is definitely a must read.
All in all, there’s a great range of perspectives among the blogs you can find at Create Your Health - if you take a look at them, you’ll find it’s simply impossible to read them and not go away with some valuable new knowledge, or a different way to look at the world.
