The best for you
In spite of all the sources of information regarding health issues, most people are still in the dark. The most basic steps to attain better health and quality of life is thought of as major changes in lifestyle. And here I am talking about better breathing techniques, drinking a little more water, regular exercise, and eating a relatively healthy, moderate diet of vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts, dairy products, fish, lamb, poultry and whole grains. To most people this seems like, “Wow! How do you expect me to give up my smoking, drinking, fun-filled life?! What you are proposing is hard work and so boring! No chocolate? You must be joking!”
Until you come across a patient, who in spite of all her good efforts, stays ill. Her legs stay swollen and painful, requiring regular painkillers to get through the day. For most of her life she ate what she liked, gained excess weight and never bothered to do anything about it. Only when she became symptomatic with pain and oedema did she think to change her lifestyle. As with all things in life, there is a critical point at which change can still happen. If you drive at a certain speed around a corner, you have to correct the direction of the speeding car before getting to a critical point at which an accident is inevitable.
The body is much the same. You need to put a few lifestyle habits in place to prevent inevitable illness. We all have genetic predispositions which will be the weak link in our body systems. Family history can give you a good idea of where your particular weakness might be. What ailments did your grand parents suffer from and what caused their death? Your own parents; what are their health problems? Within families you will find heart disease, varicose veins, cancer, etc. Be well aware what genetic pool you came from. When you know your weaknesses you can decide what to do about it to strengthen your strengths and also improve your potential.
