Secret To Better Health - Exercise

Secret To Better Health - Exercise

 

harvard health logo

 
"Millions of Americans simply aren't moving enough to meet the minimum threshold for good health — that is, burning at least 700 to 1,000 calories a week through physical pursuits. The benefits of exercise may sound too good to be true, but decades of solid science confirm that exercise improves health and can extend your life. Adding as little as half an hour of moderately intense physical activity to your day can help you avoid a host of serious ailments, including heart disease, diabetes, depression, and several types of cancer, particularly breast and colon cancers. Regular exercise can also help you sleep better, reduce stress, control your weight, brighten your mood, sharpen your mental functioning, and improve your sex life.
A well-rounded exercise program has four components: aerobic activity, strength training, flexibility training, and balance exercises. Each benefits your body in a different way."

Strong Spine, Healthy Mobility

Strong Spine, Healthy Mobility

spineu

"Lots of body systems work together to enable to seemingly simple act of walking, but your spine is what allows your body to be in a stable, upright position. Just as a strong spine and good posture are essential to healthy mobility, a painful spine can eliminate it.

Mobility is more than just your ability to walk. Mobility is your independence. By recognizing the role your spine plays in your mobility’s health, you are protecting your long-term quality of life."

Probiotics and Health

Probiotics and Health

harvard health

"When you consider ways to stay healthy as cold and flu season approaches, consuming live bacteria may not be at the top of your list. But not all bacteria are bad for you. In fact, "good" bacteria found in food and dietary supplements may help you ward off illness this winter and throughout the year. The supplements are called probiotics. "Probiotics have been shown to secrete protective substances which turn on the immune system and prevent pathogens from taking hold and creating major disease," says Dr. Allan Walker, director of the Division of Nutrition at Harvard Medical School and a world-renowned expert in the probiotics field."

Nutrition and Immunity

Nutrition and Immunity

 

harvard logo

 

"During the flu season or times of illness, people often seek special foods or vitamin supplements that are believed to boost immunity. Vitamin C and foods like citrus fruits, chicken soup, and tea with honey are popular examples. Yet the design of our immune system is complex and influenced by an ideal balance of many factors, not just diet, and especially not by any one specific food or nutrient. However, a balanced diet consisting of a range of vitamins and minerals, combined with healthy lifestyle factors like adequate sleep and exercise and low stress, most effectively primes the body to fight infection and disease."

Maintaining Musculoskeletal Health

Maintaining Musculoskeletal Health 

verywell health logo vector

Many people with arthritis resist regular physical activity or exercise because they fear it will increase pain or further damage their joints. The body is supposed to move; our joints allow for movement.
In fact, movement eases joint stiffness, reduces joint pain, strengthens the muscles which surround the joints, and help us maintain a healthy weight. The benefits are real, so keep moving!

"The COVID-19 pandemic has more Americans working from home. The resulting uptick in makeshift home offices has also led to more reports of back and neck pain. 92% of chiropractors reported seeing more neck and back pain complaints since stay-at-home orders took effect in March.
If you're experiencing these symptoms while working from home, a chiropractor can help."

Staying Fit and Healthy

Staying Fit and Healthy

ASN Logo"There is a direct relationship between your diet, physical activity, and health. Your nutrition is a key player when it comes to physical, mental, and social well-being. And it’s important for preventing disease.
Lifestyle factors may also determine if you’re going to get sick or remain healthy. One of those factors is physical activity (PA). A sedentary lifestyle is usually associated with an increased risk for chronic disease, loss of movement, and decreased immune health. For those reasons, physical activity and movement are extremely important during the coronavirus pandemic. With that in mind, I will cover the benefits of PA, where your focus should be, how to think about exercising, equipment, how much you should be doing, and much more."
