Living Healthy: Preventative Measures

Living Healthy - Take Action before you have to! 

We have all been in the situation where you HAVE to go to a doctor or specialist because a problem has worsened to the point where you need professional help. In most cases, preventative measures can completely extract the need of this individual. Let me quickly explain how taking a few preventive measures with your health can greatly help in the long run.

Eating Right - 
    
       Whenever we get on the "heath" kick, the first thing that comes to our mind is what we eat. As it should be. Eating the proper foods for your body type as well as daily regimen, is quite possibly one of the biggest factors of enjoying a long, healthy life. However, you don't need to turn into a granola and make sure everything that goes in your mouth is as close to pure air as possible. For most people, simply increasing your water intake, as well as the amount of fruits and vegetables you eat, can make a huge difference. Just always be aware of what it is your eating, as well as what benefits that food has for your body. If it takes you more than .5 second to determine if it's healthy or not, it's not.

Exercising -

        This, just like eating right, is one of the easiest ways to impact your current health the greatest. Even a short jog once a week will put most people in a much better position physically than they currently are. An important part of exercising is stretching. A lot of ex-athletes find themselves taking multiple trips per week to a local Chiropractor because they did not the prep their body properly before intense workouts. Unless you want to see Dr. Wells every week, prep your body right! Warm- up, stretch, work-out, and cool down after.

Vitamins -

         This is probably the most under-utilized way of helping your body. There is no way for you to give your body everything it needs, every single day. Vitamins can greatly increase your bodies intake of critical nutrients, which helps prevent deterioration as you age. Taking vitamins and minerals really is one of the easiest things to do when trying to keep your body running strong. It's a wonder to me why more people don't take 10 seconds a day, to add years of healthy living.

Follow these guidelines, and you will without a doubt improve the current state of your health, moreover; prevent costly issues in the future.
