Optimal Health Flourishes in a Healthy Community

Whatever happened to Community?

Long ago, women hosted parties with a purpose: to spotlight products in a festive, comfortable home atmosphere, sell products, and make money for the company and their families. Parties centered around products like plasticware, cookware, lingerie, makeup, and more. This strategy was highly successful and transformed many formerly bored housewives into thriving, empowered entrepreneurs.

Although making money is a powerful motivator for many people, most people agree it’s fun to have (or be invited to) a party or friendly gathering.

Let’s flip the script on those parties of the past…

Parties with a Purpose

The Healing Revolution CommunityWhat if the motivation for a party was not about making money or buying products, but something much more valuable than either? All the money and “stuff” in the world isn’t worth much compared to the value of being vibrantly healthy.

Sadly, many people try to make healthier choices but fail without a support system. Changing behavior seems even harder when everyone around you wants unhealthy choices. Friends, co-workers (and even family members) may say, “You’re nuts! I’m not going to give up my junk food snacks and sodas!” Or they may look hurt, saying, “But I made this [fill-in-the-blank-unhealthy-treat] just for you. You have to eat some!” (No, you don’t “have to.”)

Change is hard, but having a support network makes it easier. It helps when others on the same path encourage you when you fall short and cheer you when you triumph.

The Healthcare Crisis Solution is The Healing Revolution®!

Without support networks, people are sicker and die sooner. Social scientists now recognize that modern society is isolating, in spite of (or maybe because of) social media.

In some regions of the UK, healthy, compassionate community is now seen as a public health necessity. Check out the fascinating Compassionate Frome Project, where after implementing a social network to combat loneliness, hospital visits fell by 17%, while surrounding communities had a 29% increase during the same time frame. Doctors there estimated one in ten people had surgeries mainly because they were lonely!

How about you? Do you have a healthy tribe around you? People who are convinced that to be healthy, we have to work with nature and not against it? We have to look to natural, nontoxic solutions for ailments and seek to understand root causes, whether they are physical, mental, or emotional, because almost everything is all three. We are whole persons, not sets of isolated symptoms. Everything is connected to everything else.

And we need healthy communities to be connected to as well, just like the gut microbiome is a population of enormous proportions. Equilibrium or balance is maintained when a greater proportion of healthy microorganisms outnumbers the unhealthy ones. When the balance shifts the other way, we experience symptoms.

The question is, are you surrounded by a healthy tribe of like-minded people on the same path of choosing health over illness?

Find (or Inspire) Your Tribe

If you have a tribe of health-minded friends around you, Congratulations! If you don’t, do you want to create one?

Dr. King began a free private Facebook Healing Revolution Community in January to help everyone get their new year off to a great start. If you didn’t join back then, we are now opening the doors again. It will still be a private community, so you’ll have to request entrance.

We are building and sharing free tools to help everyone everywhere find (or inspire) their healing tribes. Those already invited are eight weeks ahead of you, but you can read past posts and catch up. It will give you a great foundation to share with, or begin gathering, your tribe.

Our world is suffering. The most powerful tools are free and available to us all. It’s time to gather together and make a difference. Let’s have more healing parties to create healthier communities, a healthier society, and a healthier world!

If this resonates with you, request your invitation to join our private Facebook group, The Healing Revolution® Community now.

We’ll see you there!

Sounds great – I want in!
