Regardless of age, shape, color and history, no matter what plate we’re given, there is always opportunity to be more Euflorious. The 5 Star Plate is a simple and natural way to balance the portions of your life. The universal application of it makes it available to anyone to use, yet the customization of each portion allows for each individual to focus on their unique needs.
The 5 Star Plate is a universal tool that aligns with the needs of each person’s respective body and lifestyle, designed to help them live a healthier and happier life. It’s foundation is rooted in the fact that we are all human and require similar means of survival but more importantly, we are all unique and thrive when we tune into the specific needs of our life. We now live in an era where integrating the advancements of Western Medicine with the holistic approach of Eastern Medicine are essential for one’s eufloria! By using the 5 Star Plate, you will have more options to comprehensively address all areas of your life. As you begin exploring your eufloria, here are some things to consider:
- Bio-individuality: Your healthcare plan should be just as unique as you are. Everything from the microbes that inhabit you, your heartbeat and the neuro-pathways in your brain are completely unique to you, so you need to be patient with learning what exactly works for you!
- Butterfly-effect: When it comes to your health, your lifestyle (the thoughts/actions you make daily) are monumental, at the cellular level, towards the development or deconstruction of your eufloria. The depth of the definition behind the butterfly effect is realistic when you consider what happens when the body ingests processed sugar for instance. A small amount triggers many negative functions in the body and what seems like a quick pick me up for your afternoon, can be catastrophic deep within your body.
- Balance: Everything is connected in the body. Sometimes targeting one area of your body can affect parts you weren’t intending. Be patient with yourself and don’t underestimate what you can do overtime. We often overestimate what we can get done in a year and underestimate the power of practice and progress over 5 years. Life is cyclical in many ways, so be mindful of when your thoughts and actions begin spiraling downwards, as like attracts like.
Your approach to being more euflorious will take you on a fabulous journey. The suggestions here are simple and can be added to the average person’s day.
