The 5 Keys to Great Health

the 5 keys to great health

As Walter Cronkite puts it, “America’s healthcare system is neither healthy, caring, nor a system.” In fact, about 1/5 of all money in the U.S, $2.24 trillion in 2007, is spent on healthcare, yet we are 37th in the world in health care.We are not getting a good return on our investment!

It greatly saddens me that millions are needlessly suffering with heart disease, cancer, diabetes, debilitating illnesses and life-threatening diseases because their negative health and lifestyle choices are a result of a fundamental lack of knowledge about what their body needs to function properly.

The 5 Keys to Great Health

1. Rest- Restful sleep at night is essential for good health.  An estimated fifty to seventy million Americans live on the brink of mental and physical collapse    due to lack of sleep. If you are not getting 9 hours of good sleep you are increasing the rate at which your body ages, increasing your likelihood of catching a cold, potentially increasing your weight, increasing your risk of type 2 diabetes, reducing your sex drive, decreasing your brain function and increasing the production of harmful stress hormones. Thus, good sleep is one of the best “health principles” available to you.

 

2. Water, Food and Supplements-Water is the single most important nutrient for our bodies and is considered the “miracle cure” for many health conditions. If you are not drinking enough clean and pure water you are dehydrated. Dehydration has been shown to be a contributing factor in joint pain, arthritis, high blood pressure, digestive problems, asthma and other conditions. All foods are not created equal. A good dietary regimen which favors “alive” food over “dead” food (including fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, fish, eggs, cheese and chicken) is ideal. In addition, eating foods that are alkaline, as opposed to acidic, promote health. Processed, cooked and stored foods no longer possess the vital nutrients our body needs to function properly, therefore, nutritional supplementation is essential to obtain and maintain a healthy body.

 

3. Exercise- Americans are one of the most obese and sedentary populations in the world. Exercise is vital to improving health and losing weight. Exercise has been shown to prevent cancer, heart attacks, heart disease (the leading causes of death in Americans). It also helps to slow aging, lower stress, alleviate pain, prevent colds and flu’s, controls blood sugar in diabetes and may even help prevent diabetes. Thus, move it or lose it!

 

4. Detoxification-Because of the way Americans eat and drink and because of the toxicity of our environment- everything from manufacturing to agriculture- many people’s bodies are backed up with microscopic garbage. These toxins have been shown to contribute to cancers, memory loss, athritis, fatigue, headaches, skin conditions, poor immune function and other conditions. There are simple things you can do to rid your body of these toxins and to decrease your exposure to toxins.

 

5. Control Stress-Long term stress has been shown to make you obese and unhealthy, to cause high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, etc. Excessive stress can predispose you to develop or aggrevate every conceivable affliction. It is important to identify causes of stress, practice mindfulness, reframing, forgiveness, laughter and other strategies to reduce stress. It is also critical to get a comprehensive evaluation from a qualified physician to detect and minimize potential physical causes of stress on your body.
