A Healthy Lifestyles Comes By Way of These 3 Key Flavors
Maintaining good health doesn't happen by accident, you just have to know where to look. Harvard Health suggests a healthy diet, regular physical activity and focused stress reduction can go a long way to help us achieve wellness.
A healthy diet is rich in fiber, whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, "good" or unsaturated fats, and omega-3 fatty acids. These dietary components turn down inflammation, which can damage tissue, joints, artery walls, and organs. Going easy on processed foods is another element of healthy eating. Sweets, foods made with highly refined grains, and sugar-sweetened beverages can cause spikes in blood sugar that can lead to early hunger. High blood sugar is linked to the development of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and even dementia.
Regular physical activity is also necessary for good health. It can greatly reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, breast and colon cancer, depression, and falls. Physical activity improves sleep, endurance, and intimacy.
Aim for 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise every week, such as brisk walking. Strength training, important for balance, bone health, controlling blood sugar, and mobility, is recommended two to three times per week.
Finally, Harvard Health tell us finding ways to reduce stress is another strategy that can improve health, given the connection between stress and a variety of disorders. Try, meditation, mindfulness, yoga, playing on weekends, and taking vacations.
Another great way to make sure wellness works for you could be regular visits to your chiropractor.
Seeing Your Chiropractor
Chiropractors have a patient-centered, whole-person approach. They will review medical history and ask about your daily routine in the initial visit.
They believe wellness and routine chiropractic care should be as basic to our lives as healthy diets and daily exercise. They offer the purest form of chiropractic care, providing full spinal adjustments using the diversified technique to check for subluxations, which are misalignments of the spine.
Subluxations are misalignments of one or more vertebrae in the spine and/or joints. When the misalignment is corrected it may have far reaching effects on back, neck and sciatica pain. It may also help with allergies, TMJ, arthritis, headaches and migraines.
As a wellness clinic, the chiropractic focus is on daily stresses, aches and pain without use of medications or surgery.
I have known many friends and relatives who have used chiropractic treatment to maintain wellness and handle life’s daily tensions.
If this direct focus on chiropractic wellness sounds just as great to you as it does to majority of the people in the U.S., make an appointment and find out more.
