Are you done with being stuck in your old routines, ready to reclaim your life and get your body back in balance? Well, believe it or not, the first step in the right direction is not to dust off your bathroom scale and face the music.
Sure, punching in the numbers to get your BMI will give you a heads-up as well. Rebooting your cupboards with healthier snacks does wonders, just as signing up with a personal trainer will boost your exercise routine. But if you really want to balance your body, you need to start by looking at it inside out, on a molecular level. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, suggested some 2,000 years ago that all of our health issues originate in our gut. An old wisdom that still holds true today. And how about that surefire cold on the first day of vacation after working round the clock for weeks? What a lot of us might not realize is that it is just our immune system doing its job to protect us by physically telling us it’s time to slow down. Now, is it any wonder that the status of our bodies goes a lot deeper than what the good old bathroom scale is able to tell us?
Begin by balancing your body from within
The Omega-6:3 ratio in your blood is a great starting point and benchmark measurement of how your body is functioning on a molecular level. You probably already know that Omega-3 is good for you and that eating a lot of fish usually takes care of that. You might also subscribe to the common misconception that Omega-6 is the bad fatty acid, as you’ve probably picked up on the fact that modern Western diets contain an unhealthy excess of this particular fatty acid. In fact, both Omega-3 and -6 are extremely important for our bodies, but the food we eat tend to give us a distorted ratio of these fatty acids. By looking into the fatty acid profile of your blood, you’ll be able to gauge the strength of your current diet and what you need to change. The profile provides you with an overview of eleven of the most important fatty acids in your blood, including Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9.
