Most people I know want to improve their health but often aren't prepare to make major changes. This can be for many reasons but often they haven't had a health scare and they are hoping they will get away with their bad habits. Now is the time to address your lifestyle BEFORE something happens.
Here are 3 of my easiest suggestions for improving your health.
Top Tip No 1 Make sure you get enough Vitamin D. The best way is through the sun but if you live in the UK it is impossible for your body to make any from the sun between September through to May. And then that is if the sun actually shines. The cheats easy way, is to supplement and the cost is around £15 for a whole YEAR. There are many brands but Healthy Origins is a good one and the 5,000 iu's, is a good dosage. Most people use an average of 5,000 iu's for normal bodily functions so that is a good starting point. However, for the magic to happen you need to optimize your levels and the only way to do this is to get your levels checked. Birmingham City Assay Department, an NHS lab, will supply you with a finger prick test and process the results in around 5 working days for just £28.
Top Tip No 2 Improve your gut health. 80% of your immune system is based in your gut and with modern lifestyles the bad bacteria often flourish while the good guys get crowded out. Antibiotics and the craze for anti bacterial soaps have exasperated the situation. The good bacteria should out number the bad ones but this is not the case and once the bad ones take hold they can damage the gut lining and stop you absorbing your food. You aren't what you eat, you are what you absorb. Including fermented vegetables and drinks in your diet is a good start but the easiest way is to take a good probiotic supplement and eat prebiotic foods.
Top Tip No 3 Many of our new technologies haven't been around for long enough and we don't fully understand the long tern effects of using them. We are electrical beings and to constantly bombard our cells with electromagnetic fields is unwise, especially when they are renewing at night when we are sleeping. At the very least switch off your mobile phone at night and set a timer on your wi-fi router. If you have a cordless phone consider going back to a corded one.
