You Be the Doctor

Dr Bret WilsonFive of the ten leading causes of death in this country are preventable as a result of lifestyle choices you can make.    These diseases result in almost 70% of the deaths in America and effect the quality of life for millions of others.  The diseases are heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes and high blood pressure.  These are the diseases that you see many of the pharmaceutical commercials on TV touting their treatment.  But the pill is not the answer or the prevention.  You have the power to make better choices and develop healthier habits.

The lifestyle choices are diet, and exercise.  The dietary choices involve both the type and amount of food we eat. Diet may account for as much as 75% of the disease in our country.    Proper diet can help maintain a healthy weight, provide nutrition for tissue repair and reduce risks and restore health.  Recent headlines have indicated that sitting for more than 6 hours a day will shorten your life expectancy by 4.5 years.  Regular physical activity and exercise has benefits of fitness, weight control, stress reduction, improved mood and increased vigor.

Lifestyle choices can significantly improve your health and reduce your risk of the most common chronic diseases.  If you have these diseases, you can manage the disease and even resolve the condition through improved lifestyle choices.  Enlist the help of your physician, chiropractor, naturopath, dietician and trainer to help you find better healthier choices for you.  Start now and include your family in the better health lifestyle.  It the best health insurance, and an investment that will pay dividends for many years.
