Here’s To A Happy And Healthy 2016

Can you believe that 2016 is just around the corner?  I’m shocked at how fast this past year went.  Amazing!

I hope that you exceeded all of your wishes and desires for 2015.  But now it’s time to look forward into 2016 and set new goals.

What is it that you want for yourself in the New Year?  Do you want to reach new financial goals?  Run a race?  Spend more time with family?  Travel more?  Learn new skills?

What do you want to achieve?

I believe that what ever you choose for yourself is a GREAT goal because it is your goal and what you want.

But the one thing that I know is that you will have a hard time reaching any of your goals if you do not have good health.

Unfortunately all too often people take their health for granted until it’s too late.  It’s not until your in severe pain, you now have to take medications or that you get that dreaded diagnosis that you realize just how important your health really is.

If you have high aspirations for 2016 then PLEASE make sure that you take care of yourself.  Yes it’s a little, just a little, bit harder than doing nothing but a little “hard work” will pay huge dividends.

Below is a list of 26 POWERFUL Tips that will help you make 2016 your healthiest year yet (that is if you put them to use).  Don’t go crazy and implement them all at once.

Instead evaluate your unique situation and pick the 3-5 that really resonate with you and your goals and get busy working on them.

Keep me posted and let me know what tips you are focusing on and how you’re doing with them.  It never gets old for me to hear about great success stories that come from making simple lifestyle changes.

So here you go….26 Powerful Health Tips That Will Make 2016 Your Healthiest:

  • Conducting a nutritional detox/cleanse 1-2x/year is vital to achieving good health.  It is energy intense and not a starvation protocol.  Be sure to do it right!
  • The SAD (Standard American Diet) way of eating includes an abundance of grains, sugar, and processed foods which is very addicting and is contributing to systemic inflammation which is the root of most chronic diseases (obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, etc.).  Evaluate your current diet and change it accordingly.
  • A Paleo style eating program is a great foundation for your dietary requirements.  Consuming plenty of lean meats, veggies, fruits, nuts/seeds and healthy fats is a great start toward accomplishing your health goals.
  • Do not DIET!  All DIETS eventually D-I-E!  Incorporate healthy lifestyle habits such as eating well for a lifetime, exercising often, reducing stress, and obtaining quality sleep to achieve your desired health goals.
  • 80% of your success when it comes to your health is based on the foods that you are or are not eating.  What do your dietary choices say about your health?
  • Not all calories are created equal.  Different calories/foods speak differently to your body and result in various hormone responses.  Choose calories that will speak the language of health to your body.
  • You do have control over your genes.  Epigenetics, what we do to our genes, will influence how our genes express themselves.  We can influence our genes by the foods we eat, exercise, stress, sleep, exposure to toxins, etc.  Make healthy choices!
  • Fat is good for you and is absolutely needed in your diet.  Choose good sources of healthy fats like nuts, seeds, avocados, olive oil and coconut oil to name a few.  Avoid the fats found in processed “foods” and vegetable oils.
  • GRAINS (yes even whole grains) are sabotaging your health.  Grains, especially gluten containing grains like wheat, rye, barley and oats, cause low grade inflammation which is contributing to a variety of chronic diseases and especially weight gain.  Want to get healthy?  Try going grain free (no wheat, corn, soy, etc.) for approximately 30 days and see if you notice an improvement.
  • Stress is both good and bad.  However chronic stress releases high levels of cortisol which will lead to adrenal fatigue and will result in weight gain as well as poor health.
  • WATER!  Drink lots of clean water.  Rule of thumb:  take your body weight in pounds and divide it in half.  That number is approximately how many ounces of water you should consume per day.  Try it and let me know how you feel.
  • Strive for 7-8 hours of good quality, uninterrupted sleep.  A lack of sleep has been linked to weight gain, diabetes and cancer.
  • Move it or lose it!  Try to incorporate at least 20 minutes of your favorite exercise, can be anything, 3-5 times per week.  Exercise is a simple and effective tool to improving your health.
  • Know your Vitamin D levels and be sure to get them in the healthy range of 50-80 ng/mL.  Simple to do via the sun and supplementation and will have powerful impact on your health.
  • Cholesterol is not “evil” and is not the cause of heart disease.  Inflammation is the culprit and refined carbohydrates are what lead to heart disease.
  • There are alternatives to statin (cholesterol) medications.  If you are taking cholesterol medications then you should certainly be supplementing with CoQ10 to help offset the unwanted side effects from the statin drugs.
  • If you take antibiotics you need to supplement with probiotics to reintroduce the health promoting bacteria back into your gut that were wiped out from the antibiotic therapy.
  • Gut health is extremely important.  Must remove offenders that are causing poor gut health (grains, sugar, dairy, infection etc.), provide nutrients to help improve digestion (digestive enzymes), help the gut repair itself (glutamine, marshmallow root, etc.) and inoculate with good bacteria (probiotics).
  • Fish oils, EPA and DHA, are extremely important to your health and are deficient in most people’s diets.  Be sure to incorporate a good quality fish oil supplement into your diet.
  • No all supplements are created equal. Be sure to use pharmaceutical grade supplements to ensure the best quality.
  • Be sure to take supplements at therapeutic dosing to achieve the desired result.  Sometimes what is listed on the bottle is not enough to achieve your goal.
  • When selecting meats, fish, eggs, veggies, and fruits try to choose organic, free range products whenever possible.
  • Always eat breakfast with in 1 hour of waking up and be sure to include some type of protein with your meal.
  • Always set health goals!  They will help increase your odds for success!
  • Get adjusted regularly.  Chiropractic adjustments enhance the functioning of your nervous and immune systems and help your body perform at its best.
  • When in doubt and if you want to increase your odds of reaching your desired health goals then work with a knowledgeable health care provider that is well versed in nutrition!  I know a good one willing to help :)!!

I hope you found immense value in the information above.  These tips can truly change your health for the better if you put them to use.

It’s your health and ultimately your responsibility.  If it is good health that you want then get to work on making more positive changes.  Good health does take a little more work then doing nothing but the reward is well worth it!
