Is there anything we can do to avoid health issues or it is just a part of life?
The answer is that it’s a mixture of both. While some people will still get sick no matter what they do, most can actually avoid being seriously ill for the majority of their lives by practicing a few basic lifestyle changes. Here’s what you need to do:
Get Some Physical Activity Every Day
No matter what you do in life, it’s important to get at least some physical activity every day, even if it is only a little. Being physically active makes it easier to maintain a healthy weight and leads to changes throughout your body that are conducive to health.
Importantly, do what you enjoy. View exercise as a treat to yourself, not something that you have to push through to get results.
Stop Eating Processed Foods And Junk
Processed foods are universally bad for you. Manufacturers take out the natural goodness of the items in question and replace it with salt, fat, sugar and all sorts of other additives that you wouldn’t normally find in natural foods.
Replace foods in your diet with healthy plant-based alternatives. Try to shift your diet in favor of plants as these are the most protective.
Visit Your Dentist Every Six Months
Going to the dentist is essential for keeping your mouth healthy. If you develop gum disease, it can lead to systemic problems in your body, such as diabetes and heart disease. And problems with missing teeth can affect your jaw bone and facial structure, changing how you age.
Control Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is a leading cause of disability and death worldwide. It kills more people than anything else, according to the WHO.
Therefore, bringing it under control is essential. You can do this by following the lifestyle advice above, plus drinking herbal hibiscus-containing teas, eating flax seed, and consuming more herbs and spices.
Some people also try fasting for a day or two. This can be an extremely effective way of bringing blood pressure down.
Don’t Let Life Get To You
Have you ever noticed that the people who age best are those who don’t let life get to them? They’re always happy, regardless of whether the stock market is up or down, or whether they can pay their mortgage that month. They’re immune to shame, fear, anger and all the other negative emotions that dominate many people’s lives.
Living stress-free is all about perspective. It depends on how you view life. If you believe you need to be perfect, it will always be a challenge. But if you just allow things to flow forward naturally, in whatever way they like, it becomes easier. Stress is no longer a feature in your life and won’t damage your health.
Lastly, if you smoke, quit. Smoking produces a raft of health problems in people before they get truly old.
If you follow all of the above advice, you’ll be a rare person indeed. Only a tiny fraction of people in modern society check all these boxes.
