Do we really have 22 different senses?

A woman sitting next to me at my Visionary Business Mastery conference last week blew my mind. She is a doctor from Mongolia and she casually mentions that humans have up to 22 different senses. WOAH!

Besides the main five senses; vision, hearing, touch, taste, smell and then thanks to the movie, we discovered the sixth sense. What else is out there?

As I dove into this concept a bit deeper, I found this diagram.

If you have worked with me, you know that I suggest to practice observing your senses, body’s signals, cravings and taste buds before you prepare a meal. Even when someone asks me a simple question, I have to take into consideration the MANY aspects of what is going on in the physical, emotional and mental body before I can answer.

For example: What foods help with brain function? Super simple question and with technology today, I should just google and send over a list.

Instead, I ask…

  • What else is going on in your life during certain times of your day that leaves your brain feeling depleted?
  • Do you notice mental exhaustion after certain meals?
  • Are you sleeping straight through the night?
  • What strong cravings are you having in the middle of the day?
  • What other issues could be considered more of the cause and the tired brain is the result. 

All of these inquiries help you tune into the body and reveal what organs need more support. We are considering how to support your body as a whole versus trying to piece together what you are truly missing. How do you go about finding answers in regards to your body? Are you asking the right questions?

I created the Master of YOU course to help you tune into your senses and understand how your OWN body works.

Each week you implement simple suggestions that will help your nutrition click for the rest of your life. No one, I repeat, no one, knows your body better than you.

P.S. Here is what a past Master Class participant says…

I cannot thank you enough for ALL that you’ve done for me over the last few years! I have learned so much about nutrition and what works best for my body. I remember meeting you a few years ago and it didn’t take long for me to start feeling healthy and alive again! You have given me so many tools to use to make healthy decisions and have always been there to support me going through the process. I recently completed the 4-week program and loved it! It was a challenge, but the results were phenomenal! I’ll admit that four weeks is a pretty decent commitment and doing it during the summer was not easy, but for me it was the right amount of time to allow for adjustments in my nutritional plan to stick! Being allowed time to ease out of bad habits and re-introduce healthy ones worked for me. I didn’t feel rushed through the program, therefore no stress about obtaining the bi-weekly goals of the reset. I never felt depleted, but reinvigorated throughout the process. I had more energy and slept better as a result. The added bonus was a few pounds lost! I would highly recommend this program to your new clients and for anyone who needs a reset every now and then. I love working with you and your support is always genuine and reassuring. You have changed my life! Thank you for doing what you do!

Love and Blessings,

Rachel R.
