Experts believe that the main cause of these diseases is unhealthy eating. And this is only one group of diseases. In fact, up to 90% of diseases are directly related to bad eating. It reduces human life by 2-3 times – all the while a constant struggle with various chronic illnesses is pervasive. Collectively, cardiovascular disease (including stroke), cancer, and diabetes account for approximately two thirds of all deaths in the United States and about $700 billion in direct and indirect economic costs each year. Current approaches to health promotion and prevention of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes do not approach the potential of the existing state of knowledge, especially as it pertains to living naturally.
Proper healthy eating and exercise along with healthy attitudes is a prevention of disease. Someone who leads a healthy lifestyle is not as afraid of getting sick. Such people are always cheerful, active, more durable and resilient, and they live longer. But if you are already sick and you don’t follow the principles of healthy living, then you should learn the principles and practices of a healthy lifestyle by reading, attending lectures and even visiting a destination wellness retreat like Balance for Life. Gradually over time, you will move to a healthier way of being.
Staying healthy and feeling your best is important at any age and that doesn’t change just because you have a few more grey hairs. As we grow older, we experience an increasing number of major life changes, including career changes and retirement, children leaving home, the loss of loved ones, and physical changes. How we handle and grow from these changes is the key to staying healthy. These tips can help you maintain your physical and emotional health and live life to the fullest, whatever your age.
A key ingredient in the recipe for healthy aging is the continuing ability to find meaning, purpose and joy in life. As you age, your life will change and you will gradually lose things that previously occupied your time and gave your life purpose. But this is not a time to stop moving forward, no matter your age. Life can be a time of exciting new adventures if you let it.
What’s more, a natural lifestyle as a foundation may play an important role in mood and mental health. According to the American Journal of Psychiatry, a healthy diet is associated with a lower incidence of depression, anxiety disorders and mild depression than a typical diet high in sugar, processed foods and alcohol.
If a health-related quality of life—and not longevity—is the key goal for you (and it should be), then it is captured only partly by the existing mortality and morbidity indexes. Adding life to years, not years to life, is the current agenda for productive and successful aging.
