Health is not merely the absence of disease, but the body performing at it’s optimal function! Do you want to merely add years to your life, or rather LIFE to your years? Don’t limit yourself to just getting out of pain, liberate yourself by optimising your health. Let’s look at the 3 pillars of health.
What are the three pillars of health?
Your brain is like a muscle, which needs exercise. Taking some time give your brain a healthy workout is key to improving your health longevity. Fresh challenges, new skills, mindfulness and mediation work to nourish your brain. Don’t get stuck in a negative thought loop, break out of it by exercising your brain in a positive way.
Your body is designed to move, not stay still. Your spine is made up of 24 moveable segments, make sure they are all moving freely and easily. Movement is controlled by your nervous system, but movement also stimulates your nervous system (including your brain). Lack of movement can lead to a poorly functioning nervous system, and ill-health. Chiropractic in conjunction with exercise can help keep your body healthy and moving.
Food is your bodies fuel. If you feed your body great fuel, chances are it will perform at a greater level. If you feed your body poor quality fuel, it won’t run so well. It’s a bit like a car blowing smoke. Yes it still runs, but it’s performance and longevity are reduced. Our bodies are very resilient, but over time, bad fuel can stress it out, and present in a variety of symptoms. Good fats, plenty of vegetables and lean meats are essential to a good diet and a healthy body. Processed foods should be avoided. Follow this simple rule, if it’s beige, its bad (ie biscuits, crisps, pastry).
