Keys to Optimal Wellness and Health

We have oft been taught that a healthy diet in addition to moderate exercise are the expectations for good well being. What on earth is much less often highlighted, and then exclusively in part, is the role of nutritional supplements if, and why, they really are important.

Medical doctor and author Ray D. Strand explains the link between health, aging and illness this way. Our cells utilize oxygen to produce energy. In the process of accomplishing this, they create a by-product termed free radicals. Free radicals are billed oxygen molecules which are missing an electron. In attempting to find an electron to pair track of, they can cause damage to our bodies by damaging the cell walls, vessel walls, proteins, fat and the DNA nucleus. Toxins are only prevented from causing further damage after they encounter antioxidants, which are able to give the free radicals the electrons they need.

Obesity has been on the rise for some time now our children are FAT and our children our unhealthy. Many of the health gurus out there today have hypothesized that metabolic syndrome will be the number killer in the next 40-50 years. Not heart disease, and not cancer.

It’s easier to be unhealthy than it is to be healthy look to your left now look to your right. Everywhere you look is an advertisement for fast food. Which sparks our interest because we want everything as fast, cheap, and convenient as humanly possible.

We’re all tired at the end of the day and it’s so easy to go through the drive through at McDonalds and have an instant meal without going home to prepare a good healthy meal.

It’s much easier to do what’s fast, easy, and convenient. I hope this blog post changes your thoughts on your lifestyle habits. Trust me it will be worth it to eat well, move well, and think well.

The “rusting” damage to our bodies caused by out-of-control free radicals is called oxidative stress, and medical literature shows that over 70 chronic degenerative diseases (including Parkinson’s, cancer, diabetes and coronary artery disease) are the result of small oxidative changes over a long time.

Have you ever heard that you can think yourself well? I’m not sure if science can back up that theory but it can prove that a positive mind can do big things. When you can control your mind and your emotions your body will follow for an optimal health and wellness lifestyle.

There has been a great deal of research on the subject of the biopsychosocial model. This model is the combination of both physical and psychosocial issues. Even though most patients begin improving quickly from back pain with the right care, both recurrence rate and dissatisfaction with medical care is high. Causing people to worry more than normal.

A healthy mind is part of an overall healthy well-being. I’m not saying we can think ourselves well with positive thinking, but that combined with eating well, and moving well can make a difference in your life.
