Learn to listen to your body
Mr Bee: Hi Kamilla, so we understand you are studying to be a doctor?
Kamilla: Yes, Hi, I will be a doctor in the near future and I am dedicated to leading a healthy lifestyle. I will be writing articles for beandmake on a range of topics. If readers want to me write about any health topics, or have questions, I will try my best to answer them.
Mr Bee: What factors affect someone’s health?
Kamilla: I believe lifestyle and living conditions make up a big proportion, about 49-53%. 12-22% can be attributed to genetic factors. I think 17-20% comes from environmental conditions and 8-10% is from medical assistance.
Mr Bee: So you are saying, a lot our health is in our hands?
Kamilla: That’s right! About 50% of our health is in our control and the rest is from external factors.
Mr Bee: Tell us your health secrets?
Kamilla: I love to sleep, I believe it is the key to amazing health. I sleep as much as my body is asking for, which is a roughly 8-10 hours. Water is my other big secret. In my bedroom there is always a non-carbonated water bottle. After waking up, I go straight for the water! I always carry a bottle of water and drink at least 2 litres per day. Yoga and the gym are very important to me also. I have a strict daily skin care regime and every couple of months I do special detoxes (I will document these in the future).
Mr Bee: What do you eat for breakfast?
Kamilla: I usually have a bowl of porridge with oats, honey, quail eggs, buckwheat, quinoa and bran with yogurt.
Mr Bee: What do you think about sugar,dairy and gluten in your diet?
Kamilla: I absolutely do not use sugar (I will blog more about this later). I try restrict gluten in my diet. Dairy products and alcohol are not greatly needed by my body.
Mr Bee:What is your philosophy on health?
Kamilla: You have to learn is to listen to your body.
Mr Bee: Thank you Kamilla, we wish you well with your studies and look forward to your future blog posts 🙂
