What are Your Symptoms Telling You? – Interview with Christian Thomson, Health & Wellness Consultant High Performance Health

    • Alternative Health

Angela is with Christian Thomson, Health and Wellness Consultant and a World Kickboxing champion who throughout his career as an athlete suffered from the symptoms of an unexplained chronic condition. He ultimately healed himself and now works to help others optimise their health.

They discuss the increasing number of problems that as a species we are choosing to live with ‘ because it’s not really that bad’ when we should be taking notice of these symptoms and taking action to make changes.

It begins by understanding where your health is now and Christian and Angela discuss the ways in which you can test and understand markers so that you can make the right changes for you.

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS
DNA and microbiome testing can lay an important part in understanding how your body works and achieving optimal health
Symptoms are subjective but are good indicators and a good starting place when assessing health.
Many people have a range of symptoms but put them down to stress and busy lifestyles. It’s important not to ignore any symptoms.
Your immunity can be comprised in many ways so a good starting point is to identify how well your immune system is working. The impact our food environment has on our immune system is significant.
Feelings of energy and health are very subjective but as a species, we are now so used to living with problems that we continue on but any symptoms are an early warning sign that there are problems.
Metabolic inflexibility comes down to a dysregulation in the ability to balance the foods we eat.
To start you need to understand where your health is and where your priorities lie and reduce the stress in your life.
Metabolic analysis – can see how your energy changes when you are exercising and at rest. This can show your exercise tolerance.

 

BEST MOMENTS

‘Fasting is a great tool to maintain health except when you do not have the capacity to balance our internal stress levels’

‘Everything happens for a reason in bio-chemistry’
