Be Heathy by Choice, Not by Chance

"Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live."

Jim Rohn

We've certainly heard a lot about aging, yet there is a newly emerging paradigm called, "youthing." Preventive, regenerative, holistic medicine believes disease and "falling apart" during the aging process are not the inevitable. That "youthing" / anti-aging is possible.

According to Dr. Mehmet Oz, "Aging is really not about preventing disease; getting rid of heart disease and cancer gains us less than a decade of life. Rather, we need to slow the rate of aging to avoid the frailty that would make longevity less desirable."

Though most of us think of diet and exercise when we want to be fit, for true health and total wellness, attention to all aspects of environment and lifestyle are necessary.

Five components are critical to the efficient operation of our bodies. Even two or three of these will not be enough to sustain life. It is when these five elements work in 'totality' that one can achieve the maximum potential for their individual life force, when mind and body can achieve their greatest potential. The five components are air, water, nutrition, exercise and energy.

Deep restful sleep allows the body to recover, for fats to be metabolized, toxins to be flushed and nutrients to be absorbed. Proper nutrition and hydration are critical to quality exercise and quality exercise improves the utilization of food and water by the body. Fresh air and deep breathing circulate oxygen, reduce stress and generate energy.

Given the pace of modern living and the "convenience" of fast foods, one way to ensure getting optimum nutrition for energy and fitness is to eat a balanced diet and to pack healthy lunches and snacks. Getting one's nutritional needs met through pre-planning can help solve the dilemma of making poor choices when "on-the-go".

Testimonials

"I have been using the vanilla healthy meal replacement once a day. I love the taste and I am WOW-ed that it keeps me feeling full for hours! As a business professional and a busy mom, I feel great knowing that KVB is natural. Now I can easily get the nutrition I need to keep me going."

"KVB is convenient, delicious and it 'holds me for a long time.' I don't feel hungry for several hours. I can take it everywhere and it is so full of healthy nutrition and wonderful ingredients, I always have good sustenance whether I am in a rush or looking to shed a few pounds."

All body movement and awareness of that movement is exercise. Exercise is part of life, ingrained in human existence, not something you have to view as an alien discipline. Feel good about moving your body. You will gravitate toward moving it more and more."

Harvey Diamond

It is important to discover the right fitness plan for you: walking, jogging, swimming, aerobics, yoga, tai chi, karate, dancing, skiing, going to the gym or doing workout videos at home.

The health benefits of exercise include: lower blood pressure, increased metabolism, weight loss, weight management and diabetes prevention. It's been reported that regular exercise will boost the immune system, keep one more mentally alert, more emotionally balanced and physically healthier.

Eliminating or reducing processed and fast foods will promote the body's ability to detoxify. Eating organic fruits and vegetables, whole grains, salads, sprouts and lightly steamed vegetables will help offset the destruction that has taken place from processed foods, which rob nutrition from the body and contribute to degenerative disease conditions. Juicing of raw organic fruits and vegetables accelerates the cleansing process and boosts vitality. Having a quality juicer is recommended for ease and efficiency.

The Growing Problem of Obesity

The National Health and Examination Survey reports that during the past 20 years, there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in the United States and rates remain high. About one-third of U.S. adults (33.8%) are obese. Approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2 to 19 years are obese.

 

"It is natural to be healthy. Our body does whatever it can to be in a state of health. If you support your body with health promoting choices, your body will respond!"
