My last post was about how we are so used to being “Sick & Tired” that we don’t know how to head to wellness. We are so addicted to fast food, sweet things, carbonated beverages and high fat foods. Our bodies don’t get the nutrition needed to be healthy and we are not doing much to help it!
Since the majority of Heart Disease, Strokes, Diabetes, Cancer and Obesity is 75% Preventable, we need to take control of our health now. We have the tools, the information, the education to make a big difference in our own life. And we are the only ones who can make those choices. Our Health is Our Responsibility, plain and simple.
What can we do to make ourselves healthier? There are several simple modifications that will help to improve our health. As we have said earlier, diet, lifestyle, wise supplementation and weight loss can help prevent the development of diseases. Prevent the Development of Diseases. I like that. Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t enjoy taking medications, having stays in the hospital and I certainly don’t like spending hours in the waiting room of a Doctor’s office. So I will do what it takes to prevent the development of diseases! Here are some suggestions of primary prevention:
• Heart disease: weight loss, fiber, soy, exercise, smoking cessation
• Cancer: weight loss, antioxidants & micronutrients, eliminating environmental toxins, including cigarettes
• Stroke: weight loss, omega3s, micronutrients
• Alzheimer’s: vitamins C, E, omega3s, resveratrol
• Diabetes: weight loss, fiber, exercise
Look over this list and make a decision on how you can positively impact your own life by making a few changes. Since 75 % of the above diseases are preventable, take a careful look at your lifestyle. Increase your odds for good health!
