Chronic disease - it's an epidemic that has many searching for underlying causes and treatments to reduce reliance on prescription medications. These illnesses include metabolic syndrome, diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, high blood pressure, alzheimers and dementia, among others.
Many chronic diseases are largely caused by lifestyle choices. A program is now recommended by the NIH and others as the "first line of therapy" for individuals with many of these conditions, as well as, those with other health problems such as:
*Stress related disorders
How can we learn to make better lifestyle choices that will lead to greater health and reduce the risk factors of these diseases or lead to improvement if we are already are experiencing them?
How can we focus on what our bodyies may need in specific ways for more vitality and increased wellness?
Believe it or not, the most powerful tool we have for healing is our own body. So why don't we start with things we can control which is what we eat (nutrition) and movement (execise).
"Nutrtion, exercise, and stress management can no longer be considered alternative medicine. They are essential medicine" Mark Hyman, MD
