How to improve your health is really so simple. It all comes down to movement.
You may be thinking: "But exercise surely can't be the only thing you need?"
You are right. I'm not talking about exercise only, but the broader concept of movement.
Here is the key:
So when asking yourself 'How to Improve your Health' you need to figure out how you can move every part of you...from your muscles to your digestive tract, to your lungs, to your brain, your liver and kidneys.
Even cancer is preventable according to the American Institute of Cancer Research. So why don't we hear more about how to prevent disease, rather than how to treat it?
In my opinion, because movement takes work!
Movement requires that we take a holistic approach to dealing with all aspects and dimensions of our life. We need to keep moving forward in all areas or we end up with stagnation.
So think about that stinky, smelly, swampy pond full of leaches and very little life...that is what happens in our bodies too when we don't move.
Think about it, if we don't move our liver and provide it with liver detox foods or an occasional liver detoxification supplement, it stagnates and gets over-run with too much 'crap' to work efficiently. Some of the cells start to die and we as a whole, move toward poor health and dis-ease.
You can apply this same rationale to every part of your body.
And, as a refresher, for those of you who have forgotten the basics, there are 3 primary areas that we need to address when looking at how to improve your health:
Oh, you noticed, we are back to the conversation of STRESS. Yes, because all health, or lack of health, related issues boil down to what types of stress we are exposed to, and what we do to minimize the effects of stress.
Now, don't forget, there is good stress, or eustress and bad stress, or dis-stress; eating an apple = good stress versus eating a candy bar = bad stress. Your body has to do work in both cases, but in the former, the work required provides essential vitamins and nutrients for our growth. In the later, the work of digestion loads our system with a bunch of non-nutrients that our body will have to figure out later.
In a topic of how to improve your health, you simply need to figure out how to move from dis-stress to eustress.
So now, let's look a little more closely at some practical tips for how to improve your health.
Like I said before, even cancer is preventable if we understand how to move our bodies appropriately.
In 1997, the American Institute for Cancer Research and the World Cancer Research Fund (AICR/WCRF) produced a 670 page report that said that 3 to 4 million cases of cancer each year could be prevented simply with appropriate diets, physical activity and maintenance of appropriate body weight.
Astounding! Yet, most medical doctors are still handing out 1000's of prescriptions for harmful chemical compounds that do nothing but stagnate your body's ability to move and heal.
Instead, I would recommend that you start to take your health into your own hands and get informed. Here are some places to start:
Enjoy the feeling of movement in your body. With every breath, your lungs expand and contract, as do all the cells in your body as they take in valuable, life-giving oxygen and nutrients and release metabolic toxins.
I can't stress the importance of movement enough.
MOVE to a new You.
