Deepak Chopra’s 6 Pillars of Health:
- Thoughts & Feelings
Where are you with each pillar?
Eating, Emotions & Energy
Are you eating for happy feelings or sad feelings?
Are you eating the same as you always have or are you having new experiences?
Does the food you eat leave you feeling good in your body and about yourself?
Do you feel energized or tired after you eat?
Carbs: Carbs give you energy and if you are not doing an exercise activity, you don’t need that much energy. If you don’t burn the energy you eat from carbs, it gets stored as fat. When you eat processed carbs it will store as fat in your body, affect your emotions negatively and drain your energy. The extra sugar from excess carbs will also develop Advanced Glycation End (AGE) products, which cause advanced aging. Click Here To Review
If you don’t metabolize Carbs well enough in your body and you eat too many, you may be overweight, create inflammation, have low energy and on your way to disease.
Good Fat: Store vitamins and many hormones are synthesized in fat. Good fat helps with brain function and energy. Will keep you satiated for a long period of time.
Lean Protein: Builds and repairs ALL tissue. It takes more calories for your body to break down lean protein than the calories in the protein.
*Plant Food: Contain micronutrients (pre-biotics) & fiber to feed our microbes. 99% of your genetic material is microbial. They make most of your neurotransmitters in both your brain and heart and keep your gut healthy and keep it from leaking. They support your body in many ways. Many issues with health and the brain may be associated with not eating enough fiber and micronutrients because they are making our neurotransmitters.
Recommended eating 1lb of plant food a day.
Example of Daily Meals (Organic, NON-GMO):
Breakfast: Green Shake with berries + slice of almond bread
Lunch: Big Salad with lean protein, good fat + fermented foods: olives, pickles, sour kraut
Dinner: Slow cooker with tons of veggies, lean protein + good fat (makes lots of leftovers)
Indian and Mexican spices help keep you satisfied and keep your brain health.

Balance & Stress/Trauma
You will not ever have complete balance in your life but you can have downtime to help regulate your nervous system by getting in nature and grounding, light exercise, 10-minutes of meditation, 1-2 minutes of light therapy.
Are you experiencing a lot of stress?
Chronic Looping Stress: Can be from past trauma. Small stresses get magnified. Chronic stress leads to chronic inflammation and disease.
Trauma From Ancestors: You could have memorized feelings and energy from 4-5 generations back. An epigenetic inheritance is an event from a relative that affects your genes.
Epigenetics: Your environment affects your health.
