Welcome to Health Continuum, the site that helps people around the world live happier, healthier lives. If you are looking for uncomplicated but better ways to take care of your health, prevent disease or find treatment, then this site is for you.

What is “health continuum”? It means that your health, mental-physical-social, is always fluctuating on a scale somewhere between ideal wellness and death. Your health is unique and you know when things are going well and when they are not.

When it comes to making health decisions, you are the most important person in the equation. You have the ability—through diet, exercise, stress management, medical treatments—to move your state of health along the continuum in the right direction.

The International Council of Nurses claims that people who are active in making health decisions live healthier lives and get better results from treatment. But you don’t have to be alone on your journey to good health. When you are unsure, always consult your doctor, nurse or pharmacist. Your relationship with your health care professional is a partnership.

In this blog, you will find practical advice to help improve your health in different aspects of your life. From healthy eating to stress management, this blog has something for you.Julie Picture

About Me

I believe that eating right is fundamental to maintaining good health and preventing disease. It is also important for the environment. I have spent years experimenting in the kitchen to come up with healthy and tasty recipes that everyone can enjoy.

I have extensive experience in nursing practice and education in a wide range of fields from intensive/coronary care to medical-surgical to community and public health. I have Bachelor Degrees in Psychology and Nursing, and a Master’s Degree in Community Health Nursing Education. I have taught in faculties of nursing and in various communities in Toronto, Canada and in Geneva, Switzerland, and have done consulting work with the International Council of Nurses (ICN).

I also have years of experience teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) in addition to coordinating an English department in a Swiss private school.
