Health in Indigenous Communities

How to Begin Improving Health in Your Community

Health includes body, soul, and spirit.  Looking at health through this holistic lens will help you create a true health-focused program(s) in your community.

Body

Body health affects everything – your mood, your feeling of well-being, your ability to do the things you want to do, your ability to take care of others – it touches on everything else in your life.  The basics of good body health are:

  • healthy foods
  • movement
  • fresh air
  • clean water

Soul

Your soul is a combination of your mind, will, and emotions.  All of these are affected by your body health, as well.  There are some practices to help build better soul-health:

  • time in nature
  • meditation
  • stress relieving techniques
  • learning new knowledge and skills

Spirit

The spirit centres our being.  It is said, ‘we are not physical beings having a spiritual experience, rather, we are spiritual beings having a physical experience’.  Here are some techniques to help strengthen our spirit:

  • obtain healing for past traumas
  • regular communication with Creator
  • reading positive spiritual books
  • listening to positive spiritual teachers

Providing a program(s) that touch on one or more of these topics will greatly aid your community in beginning the path to holistic health.
