What is ‘optimal health’?

We’re so glad you took the time to take our quiz, but if you’re anything like us, you’re now probably wondering…’so what does this all mean?’ and ‘what exactly is ‘optimal health?”
We’ve put together the information below to help you understand the score you received from the quiz and to understand more generally why these questions are so important.

If you haven’t yet taken the quiz, we’ve shared it below – jump in now!

There are so many symptoms that we sometimes just accept as normal, but that we really shouldn’t. In an ideal world for our bodies, we should all be:

  • getting a good night’s sleep; 
  • having a break from stress so that we can rest as well as digest;
  • experiencing healthy digestive systems – one or two bowel movements per day, no bloating, constipation, or pain; 
  • only feeling pain in the body when it needs to signal to you that something is wrong – we shouldn’t be experiencing chronic or ongoing pain;
  • having steady energy levels; 
  • feeling healthy, be able to think clearly; and
  • leading a healthy lifestyle that includes a nutritious diet, and regular exercise and relaxation.

A bit more about us, and how we can help to get your health on track!

At Gisborne Health Essentials, we love inspiring change. We are all on our own individual journeys and our health state will always reflect this. Why you experience specific symptoms could be completely different to the next person, based on your genetics, previous conditions, lifestyle, diet, how the body copes with physical and mental stress, and any past trauma that may have occurred.

And that’s why all the Naturopaths at Gisborne Health Essentials create individualised plans to ensure we get the best outcome for your health and wellbeing. Where necessary, we will use testing to delve into the specific details of how your body is currently functioning, or how it is genetically predisposed to function. We will also engage the expertise of other practitioners to make sure you are healing on all levels.

You might be surprised to know how much can be managed naturally and effectively. We work on digestive issues and concerns, including food sensitivities, cardiovascular issues, thyroid and autoimmune, fertility, pregnancy care, children’s health including autism and anxiety, men’s health, sleep, stress, anxiety, menopause, hormonal issues, skin concerns, hayfever, liver and methylation issues, general nutrient status, and genetics.

Are you ready and prepared to make changes to support your overall health and wellbeing?
