It should come as no surprise, that any discussion on health and wellness, must take into account exercise, diet and supplementation (in the form of vitamins and minerals). When I talk about vitamins and minerals, I include natural herbs in the discussion. These three keys to health and wellness are the foundation upon which good health is built.
If you have done any research on health and wellness, then no doubt you are aware of the growing mountain of evidence about exercise, diet and supplementation as keys to great health.
We live in a culture of medical extremes, where advertising dollars often drive the information that the public views as “truth”. For example, we are deluged daily about the need for strenuous often exhaustive exercise. This information is no doubt driven primarily by the money to be made by selling us the myriad products associated with the exercise/ sports industry. However, slowly the conventional medical wisdom is showing that light to moderate exercise is far healthier for us. It only makes sense really. I mean, we weren’t designed to work our bodies unnaturally to the point of exhaustion and even injury every time we exercise. Moderate to brisk walking or cycling is a more natural and healthy approach to beneficial exercise.
When discussing health and wellness, diet is the real foundation upon which all roads to health and wellness rest upon. If we eat a healthy diet filled with meats, cheeses, fruits and vegetables we balance our metabolism and greater health is a direct consequence. Our blood sugar stabilizes as we eat a diet that is more natural and in tune with how we are designed to eat. In particular, a low carb high protein diet is most beneficial to balancing out nutrition needs and also helps us to maintain a normal and healthy weight.
Minerals, vitamins and all natural herbs are the other key ingredient to excellent health and wellness. There is growing evidence literally day by day about the benefits of supplementing our diets with vitamins, minerals and herbs. Holistic practitioners are strongly convinced in particular about herbs and their benefits to mankind. Many of our most effective modern medicines are traceable back to herbal remedies. So, a balanced healthy life is not only attainable, but likely when we add these three keys to health and wellness to our daily living. With them we are on the road to health and wellness and aiding our bodies to help us in the prevention of disease.
