The Tough Questions

Have you tried…? Have you heard about…? Did you know…? Thank goodness people everywhere are talking more about health and wellness. It’s becoming “cool” to shop at the Farmer’s Market and to add greens to your meal. At happy hours, I see organic drink specials and skinny versions of some traditional favorites. I appreciate that there’s a serious focus on self-care reform. With healthcare costs rising, and people having less time to get sick, a laser focus on self-care is inevitable.

I love the discussions I have with my girlfriends about health and wellness strategies. Building each other up is one of my favorite past times.

I had the opportunity to read: Self Care Reform, by Rusty Gregory. This author, out of Austin, Texas, asks the questions that go a step further from, “have you tried…?” I relate to his perspective that traditional medicine and strategies aren’t reaping the long-standing benefit of improved health. Too often, Americans are losing weight and inches, only to gain it back or expose new medical issues. Product A may help you lose inches and sustain your energy, but your liver is over-taxed or your colon is toxic. Too often, we attack a surface issue only to unveil a chronic issue limiting absorption of our fuel. As Rusty mentions in his book, even after decades of scientific research and study, Americans are getting bigger and sicker. Why? And, even more, why don’t more people ask this question of medical doctors? If you do, please let me know what they say. I am genuinely interested. (Email: info@laceypruett.com)

With more Americans choosing natural remedies over prescription drugs for healing, I’m excited to see people doing what they can from where they are today. Resources are popping up everywhere, and you only have to go to your neighborhood bookstore to find reputable resources of instruction and encouragement. As a Holistic Wellness Coach, I am happy to be a resource to my detoxification clients, and I proudly suggest reading Rusty’s book, Self-Care Reform.

Within the book, you’ll ask yourself questions like the following:

  • What has derailed your past health goals, resolutions?
  • Which areas of wellness are most important to you?
  • How can you pull yourself out of a negative (un-motivated) slump?
  • What strengths do you have to draw upon during your workouts?
  • What would it take to change some negative habits you have?

Throughout the book, the reader has the opportunity to dig inward and identify some areas of strength and some challenging areas. With Rusty’s help, you’ll identify your wellness story; whether or not you’re alive and well and what exactly that means; identify enemies and goals, and you’ll build routines and strategies for lifelong change. What a gift! Check out Self-Care Reform today and start asking yourself the tough questions; the questions that matter most. Doing so, will take your wellness to another level. –Lacey Pruett

Asking myself thought-provoking questions is therapeutic exercise for me. It’s healthy to check in with your mind and spirit from time-to-time.
