Mission Statement

To help people create optimum health by sourcing and supplying innovative, natural, organic and ethical foods, supplements, remedies and lifestyle options, while at the same time respecting and preserving a sustainable environment for future generations.

A Healthy LifeStyle:

At Dimensions we constantly remind our customers that it is only after you've established a good basic functioning of the body, through eating a healthy diet, taking appropriate exercise and living a positive lifestyle, that powerful corrective nutritional and herbal remedies can optimally work to help your health.

Health is our natural state of being - but optimum health requires a living balanced lifestyle; something we all yearn for yet sometimes feel powerless to achieve. Here are some lifestyle suggestions that can empower you to achieve what you've always wanted… physical health, mental clarity, emotional balance and self esteem.

Healthy Diet:

We always say, "Nutrition comes first." Nutrients are your body's essential building blocks, not only for day to day functioning, growth and replenishment of cells but also to allow the body to heal itself. Make the basis of your diet a good variety of:

Fresh fruit and vegetables - organic whenever possible, wholefoods and grains (such as brown rice, quinoa, barley, muesli and porridge). Keep added sugars, fatty and processed foods to a minimum. Try to include foods that are grown locally and in season.

Choose healthier sources of protein. Grains eaten in combination with nuts/seeds or beans/pulses make up 'complete proteins' as they contain all the essential amino acids, as do all soya products. We stock a superb range of delicious vegetarian protein options in our North Wales shop. Minimize intake of red and processed meat.

Eat superfoods, naturally occurring foods which are inherently high in essential nutrients. Even if you are eating a balanced diet you may not be getting all the nutrients that you need. Food processing and pollution drain nutrients out of the food you normally eat; also other factors, such as stress or illness, can affect the ability to metabolise nutrients. A daily intake of superfoods such as green barley or wheat grass powder, omega-rich cold-pressed oils, spirulina, aloe vera, miso and sea vegetables is an excellent way to supplement your diet.

Be aware that refined foods can have detrimental effects on the body. Bowel problems, tiredness, headaches and skin reactions can be symptoms of malnutrition or a food intolerance. This can occur when the digestive system is unable to fully digest, absorb and metabolise certain foods, which then enter the bloodstream and appear as pathogens to the immune system.

Limit alcohol and caffeine: Too much alcohol puts a strain on the liver, have alcohol-free days or limit your intake to a couple of glasses. Also substitute herbal teas and fruit juices for tea and coffee. You should also aim to drink 8 glasses of pure water per day.

Healthy Exercise:

Healthy exercise need not be strenuous to be beneficial; everybody can enjoy the enormous benefits of regular physical exercise, regardless of age! Walking in nature is both physically and emotionally beneficial and movement such as gentle Dru Yoga is excellent. We recommend Dru Yoga classes, courses and retreats which have enhanced the health and well-being of thousands of people in the last 25 years. See www.druworldwide.com

Our guidelines on Healthy Exercise:

Perform adequate warm up before any form of exercise.
Drink adequate water when you exercise.
Do not do strenuous physical exercise when you are tired, or you will hurt your muscles or joints.
Stop physical activity immediately if you feel sick.
Seek medical advice first if suffering from acute or chronic illness.
Always practise with a qualified instructer. For a qualified Dru Yoga Teacher in your area see www.druworldwide.com

Healthy Mind and Mood:

When it comes to health it may be your thoughts and feelings that matter the most - you are what you think, feel and believe yourself to be. Examining the way you think, getting rid of negative thought patterns and replacing them with empowering ones may take self discipline at first - but the results make it well worth the effort!

"Self discipline is the ability to make yourself do what you should do when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not."

It is easy to do something when you want to. It's when you don't feel like it - and you force yourself to do it anyway - that you move your life, career and relationships in the direction that you want them to go. 
What decisions do you need to make today in order to start moving forward? Whatever it is make a decision today and then get started. This single act alone can change the whole direction of your life.

Your mind and moods are largely influenced by the world that surrounds you; so your decision might be to spend more time with positive people and limiting the time you spend with those who sap your energy. You might also decide to read more books that relax, inspire or motivate you, limit your time watching TV (which affects your subconscious mind and lulls your conscious mind into a passive state). Your decision might also be to eat more healthy food or live in the right environment. Maybe learning how to relax or reduce your stress levels, all of these can all determine your quality of life.
