How to Minimize Your Exposure to Chronic Inflammatory Disease
In my thirty years as a clinical nutritionist I have come to realize that maintaining health and avoiding disease have three main components. I'm not saying that these are the only things that keep you from getting sick but they are crucial in keeping healthy and overcoming illness. The three work synergistically with each other and should be the foundation of living well. What are these cornerstones of health?
Eating healthy can be very confusing. There are many competing theories concerning what is a healthy diet. Are carbohydrates good for you, Should you be consuming meat, Is dairy as bad as they say, What about lignans, Should you be taking supplements? These are just a few of the questions people have about diet. Dr. Mark Hymen wrote a book titled "Food" which I highly recommend. In my book, "Our Modern Mortal Trinity" I also discuss how to eat healthy based on current scientific literature. A healthy diet should balance hormones, clean your microbiome, lessen inflammation, increase immunity, help detox, increase energy, maintain healthy weight among many other health benefits.
Smoking, Stress, Physical Activity, Balance, Flexibility, Anxiety/Depression, Alcohol/ Drug Abuse, Sleep, Weight are all aspects of your lifestyle that need to addressed to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Your environment is literally killing you. Everyday, thousands of toxic chemicals enter your body via the breath you take, the food you eat, and through your skin. These toxins affect every organ, tissue, and biological process that occurs in your body. Today there is no place on earth in which environmental toxins have not seeped. Chemical Exposures, Dry Cleaning Agents, Skin and Hair Products, Heavy Metals, Water Toxins, Pesticides/Herbicides, Dental Work all contribute to Chronic Disease.
