“Discover better health? Rid yourself of the aches and pains. Live life to its fullest? Look and feel your best!

We can break down health into a few simple categories.

Diet: No, Diet is not a four letter word; it is just what makes up what we eat.

Nutrition: We need to eat the correct foods it the correct amounts too get the proper nutrition our bodies need.

Exercise: If you ever had a broken leg or arm, had a cast on it for a while, when that cast comes off, our mussels have gotten smaller, a condition known as atrophied. If you don’t use it you will loss it!

Environment: The environment that surrounds us is as important as or even more important than our diet and nutrition.

Stress: Some stress is good, too much stress is bad, but what is too much stress?

Age: We all age differently but we can help control how we age!

Disease: A disease is an abnormal condition of an organism that impairs bodily functions, associated with specific symptoms and signs.

We will look at each one of these categories separately!

Diet: Our diet is made up of the foods we eat. If your go on a weight loss program to loss weight you may change your diet to a Low Carb, Low Fat, All Natural, Vegan or Vegetarian diet. But what ever you eat, that is your diet.

You can count calories, or carbohydrates, Use the GI Index, the Water Diet or eat a Vegan or Vegetarian Diet. You can go on some very restrictive diets like the grapefruit diet or others that only let you eat a very restricted diet. But a good healthy diet is what you are looking for and one that you can maintain for the rest of your life!

So you if you need to loss weight, you need to look at a weight loss diet. Want to loss 10 pounds in 10 days or want to loss 200 pounds. There is a Diet for you!

If you need to gain weight, you need to look at a bulking up diets.

If you need to build mussel you should look at the mussel building diets.

If you are over 40 you may have additional needs/challenges that a younger person does not have.

The point is no “one diet” is right for everyone and what may work for one person is not necessarily the correct diet for you! You need to find the kind of diet that you like and can do pretty much for the rest of your life as it will become you life diet.

Before going on any diet you should know what your goal is.

What is the correct weight for you? This chart may help!

Nutrition: Nutrition is a science that examines the relationship between diet and health. Dietitians are health professionals who specialize in this area of study, and are trained to provide safe, evidence-based dietary advice and interventions.

Deficiencies, excesses and imbalances in diet can produce negative impacts on health, which may lead to diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, scurvy, obesity or osteoporosis.

Now that we know what nutrition is, what can we do about it to help better our life?

Here is a trivia question: With just one bite, what is the most nutrient rich food you can eat. Now remember this is just one bite……An Apple, Banana, and Egg, A piece of steak, a hamburger. Well believe it or not it is a Pizza, yep a pizza. A fully loaded pizza has more nutrients in it than any other single bite of food. But is it healthy? Fried, fats, oils, sugars, carbs, and white floor, no pizza is not a health food.

The point is; nutrition has many definitions but When Health Matters you want to choose good healthy nutrition.

Exercise. Yep, exercise is the most important thing you can do for yourself after Diet and Nutrition.

No, you do not have to become a marathon runner or an Olympic swimmer but you do need to move. But the good news is, exercise is accumulative. 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the afternoon is the same as 30 minutes all at once for non-aerobic exercises like walking.

If your general health permits it, see you health care professional, then cardiovascular exercise is the best for your overall health. Doing an aerobic exercise that’s makes you sweat and raises you heart rate for 15-20 minutes or more. Jumping rope, running and dancing are all good Aerobic exercises.

Find ways to make exersie fun and easy. Here is an idea! When you go to the store, movies, dinners etc. try parking at the far edges of the parking lot and walk to the door/entrance.

Try Mall Walking, race walking, walking marathons, bike events or walking for the cure etc. These can be a lot of fun.

Environment: The environment that surrounds you is very important to your overall health.

Remember the basic rule of three’s. You can live 3 minutes without air; you can live 3 days without water and live three weeks without food.

Breathing bad air, eating contaminated food and drinking, bathing and swimming in contaminated water is all hazardous to your health.

Our water supply is contaminated with things like heavy metals, chlorine, fluoride and insecticides. While the amounts are low enough for the government, they may not be low enough for your best health.

Drink lots good, clean, filtered, reverse osmosis water. Get a shower filter that filters out the chlorine and other contaminates. The Chlorine in your drinking water is the same as the chlorine in your bleach, and your bleach container says not to drink it.

Once you have all you fresh fruits and vegetables home, wash them. Wash those grapes, apples, celery, lettuce etc. to make sure you get all the insecticides and other contaminates off.

So get a good air filtration system, I feel the ionic ones are best.

Drink lots of good clean filtered reverse osmosis water. Get a shower filter.

Wash all your fresh food thoroughly to remove any insecticides and other contaminates.

Stay away from second hand smoke and other contaminated air sources, contaminated water supplies and swimming holes and contaminated foods.

Stress: While some stress is good too much is not. Learn how to control your stress levels.

Get and listen to stress reducing tapes/CD’s.

Take up yoga, gardening, walking or other calming hobbies.

Again, gets lots of exercise and drink lots of water.

Make adjustments to your lifestyle and remove dead lines. Dead lines are one of the highest stressors we have.

Avoid traffic jams. Readjust your schedule so you can miss the worst of the traffic.

Improving your health

Eat a good healthy diet.

Drink lots of good clean water. Divide your weight by 2, that is how many ounces of water you should drink a day. That’s water, not coffee, tea, beer or orange juice.

Do your cleanses. Colon, gal bladder, liver, whole body, etc.

Achieve you proper weight. See Chart

Exercise. Remember exercise is accumulative; 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the afternoon is as good as 30 minutes all at once, but you must move.

Stop all unhealthy habits like smoking, over drinking, over eating, junk foods, eating fried foods, and When Health Matters start making good healthy choices.
