Your Wellness Guide

rainbowsweatsHello! My name is Kat and I’m the Program Director and Wellness Guide at the DIY Healthy Lifestyles Center. I’m also the editor-publisher of Healthy Lifestyles Media,  producer of the publications and programs listed above under “What You’ll Find Inside the Center”.

The DIY Healthy Lifestyles Center promotes a “do-it-yourself wellness” plan centered around the 5 Essentials for Healthy Lifestyles.

This is a plan is based upon my personal and academic research in natural health and healing while seeking treatment for fibromyalgia and the other complications that came along with that.

When I lost my job due to my illness, I also lost my good health insurance plan and had to go on unemployment and Medicaid. Some of my prescriptions were no longer covered and some of those did not have any substitutes.

A friend gave me his old computer so I used it to do my own searches. I looked for natural alternatives to those medications. I found movement therapies that were easier for my crippled body to do.

I became so interested in behavior and lifestyle change techniques that it prompted me to pursue a degree health and wellness management, which ultimately turned into the DIY Healthy Lifestyles Plan.

The Center and its Journal e-magazine is where you can learn to:

 

  • Manage chronic illness or pain conditions

  • Access reliable wellness information

  • Discover affordable healthy choices

  • Meet people who share your challenges

  • Create your own healthy lifestyle plan

 

Very Good Reasons to Do It Yourself

Underemployment and minimal or no health insurance are just a couple of reasons for learning how to create a do-it-yourself wellness plan.

But here’s one Really Big Good Reason for those of us living in the USA:

U. S. political events since 2016 give us a very compelling reason to take charge of our own health and wellness: the threat of losing Medicare, Medicaid and health insurance!

The repeal of the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. “Obamacare”) puts back the barriers to accessible care that the ACA had removed.

Many of us may experience great reductions in coverage or become ineligible for any health care plan at all!

The way the current U. S. Congress is promising to increase already astronomical costs while reducing services, (not to mention destroying our environments at the same time), it’s a good time to begin learning how to better care for ourselves and for others, while we still can.  

Big Pharma’s greed (and that of certain stockholders) has already caused people to stop taking their meds because they simply can’t afford them any longer, and so they get sicker.

“They” are working hard to make it harder for us non-billionaires to stay well…to even survive!

Maybe you know someone like this…maybe it’s you?  

So now, more than ever, we need to learn how to care for ourselves, our families, and our communities, as much as possible and as soon as possible.

Join the DIY Healthy Lifestyles Center and learn what you can do in these troubled times.  

Beginning Today…

…start on your path toward improved health and wellness. Everything you need to know and do can be found at the Center.

Remember, you can reduce clinic visits, hospital stays, and prescription medications by improving your health. The ability to reduce visits in turn reduces the amount of copays and co-insurance you have to pay. You’ll save a bit money.

A Solid Guarantee

Start creating your own healthy lifestyle today and begin to see improvements within the first few months of your membership!

(Results may vary based on your current state of health and medical needs.)

Speaking of Community Environments….

One thing you should know: “Do-It-Yourself” doesn’t mean all by yourself.  You’ll get a little–or a lot–of support from Center staff plus a community of people a lot like you!

Ask questions and provide input about topics that concern you or things you would like to know more about.

Invite your friends and meet new ones to share information, learn new things, discover solutions, gather support, and celebrate achievements.

Participate in discussions, classes, courses and workshops.

Perhaps the best part about our community is that group participation is optional, not required.

You can work on your studies and plans on your own if you prefer. You’ll never be asked to share things you’d rather keep private.

You can choose to jump in on discussions that interest you and stay out of those that don’t.

You have the option to create your own private, moderated groups so you can work with your own circle of friends.

You choose the groups to interact with and the level of participation that you’re comfortable with.

But keep in mind: Learning how to get healthier is often more fun to do with friends!

Speaking of Healthy Environments

This is an aspect that many wellness sites overlook in favor of focusing on exercise workouts and recipes: our environments–home, job, school, and community–all have a huge impact on health.

We are easily swayed by environments that are set up in ways that either encourage or discourage healthy choices. Think company break room vending machines. Are they full of fat and chocolate or are you offered healthier alternatives?

How about your own home? Do you keep unhealthy snacks out in plain sight? Are there fast food coupons on magnetic clips hanging on your fridge door?

Clutter is also a health problem. Piles of stuff laying around can actually make you feel fatigued and stressed out. You have every intention of tackling those piles “someday” but every time you look at them, you want to find something else to do. Like go through those coupons or dig the treadmill out from under the laundry pile.

Sound familiar? Most people respond with a resounding “YES!!!”

The DIY Healthy Lifestyles Center addresses environmental problems both in and outside the home. One way is by providing a way for you to find things to help you achieve your wellness goals or to help you clean up your personal environments.

Which brings us to: Bonus #4

Convenient Healthcare Accessibility

We talked earlier about the troubled times ahead promising less accessibility to healthcare.

But you might be experiencing other barriers right now that can keep you from getting the help you need. It may be transportation or it might be a lack of wellness resources where you live. Maybe you live alone and there’s no one to encourage you in your efforts.

  • Live in rural areas without access to facilities, centers, or shops

  • Live alone or don’t have a nearby circle of support

  • Prefer to do things privately on their own but also like to connect with others from time to time

  • Enjoy finding ways to save money by making things themselves

  • Like meeting new people with similar interests
