Best Health Advice for 2019
As a practicing Functional Medicine and Chiropractic Physician, my patients come to me far and wide for advice on how to live a healthy life full of vitality. The fastest growing population are centenarians. So if you indeed are going to live that long, you might as well have quality of life as well. You certainly don’t want to be a burden on your kids and grandkids or your significant other.
This is primarily one of the reasons I’ve incorporated the mind, body & soul connection to my wellness and coaching practice. All three must be “aligned”, if you will, to be truly healthy and vibrant. Today I’ll discuss a nutritional component that I believe is key to staying healthy and avoiding chronic disease.
Below are some bullet points from Dr. Mercola as to why you should eat organic and I couldn’t agree more.
Choosing organic products for yourself and your family is one of the most proactive measures you can implement to take control of your health
Choosing organic foods lowers your exposure to pesticides. Research shows negative health effects may occur in children at current levels of exposure to pesticides
Organically grown foods contain higher levels of antioxidants and healthy fats than conventionally grown varieties
Soil depletion is a direct result of modern agricultural practices and has led to crops containing fewer nutrients. To receive the same amount of iron you used to get from one apple in 1950, by 1998 you had to eat 26 apples
By buying organic, you also support the mitigation of climate change, protect the environment, promote animal welfare and farmer profitability, and ensure your food is not genetically engineered
If you’re ready to make a life or lifestyle change, I’d love to help you. Twice a year I do a detox/cleanse with my patients and coaching clients, however, you can do it at any time throughout the year. There are 10, 14, 21 and 28 day programs depending on your needs. My team and I are here to support and coach you.
Are you ready to live the life you deserve? In March, I will be hosting a 1-day retreat in Miami. Discover who you are, what you want, shed any fears and past hurts, attract the right people, places and things and ultimately live the life you want and deserve.
