Power Quotes From The Show


The Simple Foundation of Good Health

"Diet, exercise and all of these traditional ways of wellness do matter but they may be secondary to something way more foundational. So, in my SuperWellness class, we look at all basic aspects of health that are almost too obvious that people just skip right over them. Some of them are so simple, so free, so crazy obvious that we take them for granted. Since we take them for granted, we don't do them, and thus don't see the results. We're never going to see a TV ad reminding us to turn off the television, go outside, and get some fresh air. That's never going to happen; who's going to make money off of you being so independent and self-empowered in your own wellness?" - Dr. Edith Ubuntu Chan



How To Crowd Out The Bad Habits

"Practice nourishing yourself the right way and as a side effect, you will crowd out the bad habits. Focus on nourishing yourself with all of those delicious things like love and hugs but also breathwork, sunshine, sleeping properly in complete darkness, drinking the right kind of water; not just the quantity but quality of water. All of these good habits will crowd out the necessity to eat junk foods and live by other poor behaviors." - Dr. Edith Ubuntu Chan



The Power of Mindful Eating

"When we tell people to lighten up on all levels of wellness, the first thought that comes to mind is portion control. Well, what if I tell you that you don't have to control so much? What if you naturally lightened up as a side effect of bringing a different level of presence and mindfulness to your eating. Just even eating in a state of joy and gratitude; slowing down, chewing your food, and savoring it properly. As a side effect of that, you'll naturally eat less and be way more satiated. What if you just focused on slowing down, savoring, and enjoying your food instead of having to be so rigid and militant about it. How are your eating habits weighing you down now and how can you lighten them up?" - Dr. Edith Ubuntu Chan
