It’s important to keep a healthy lifestyle to maintain good health that will last long term. We all know that the way to do this is to have a balanced diet and steer clear of ultra-processed foods. A balanced diet consists of whole foods like fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and unsaturated healthy fats. There are many sources of healthy fats to add to your diet. These include plant-based foods like walnuts, flax seeds, chia seeds, soybeans, avocados, and olives. Healthy fats can also be found in vegetable oils such as olive, sesame, canola, walnut, and soybean oils. Additionally, fatty fish like tuna, salmon, mackerel, whitefish, herring, and sardines are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are great for your health. Oysters, mussels, and some types of fish roe are good sources of healthy fats as well. Unfortunately, many people don’t get enough healthy fats in their diets. Recent studies have shown that eating two or more servings of fatty fish per week can help prevent cardiovascular disease in people who are at high risk. To increase your intake, make sure you eat at least one good source of omega-3 fats every day.

Regular exercise also helps improve cardiovascular health, strengthen bones and muscles, and reduce the risk of obesity and other health conditions. By combining healthy eating habits with consistent physical activity, you can control your weight, improve your mental health, and increase your energy levels, allowing you to live a fulfilling and productive life. 

It may be difficult to establish healthy habits in your daily routine, particularly if you have a busy schedule. The process of forming a habit involves a series of steps that your brain follows to create an automatic behavior. These steps include:

  • Cue: A trigger that tells your brain to start the habit. This could be anything from a specific time of day to a particular location or even an emotion.
  • Craving: The desire to perform the habit. This step is where you feel a pull or urge to engage in the behavior.
  • Response: The habit itself. This is the action you take that satisfies the craving.
  • Reward: The positive outcome that reinforces the behavior. This can be a feeling of accomplishment, a physical sensation, or even just a sense of relief.

Over time, the brain learns to associate the cue with the craving, response, and reward, and the habit becomes automatic. The more you repeat the behavior, the stronger the habit becomes, until it feels almost effortless to do it without even thinking about it.

Find an exercise routine you enjoy and can sustain, such as going for a walk or jog, joining a fitness class, practicing yoga or pilates, or even dancing. Scheduling time for physical activity, such as in the morning or after work, can help make it a part of your daily routine. 

The pandemic has really shown us how important our health truly is. Our lives are so fast-paced and busy that we often forget to prioritize our health. But, in order to take care of ourselves, we need to make conscious choices about our diets and ensure we are getting the proper nutrition. This is why the World Health Organization celebrates World Health Day on April 7th every year – to draw attention to the importance of health and well-being around the world.

We know it’s not always easy to live a healthy lifestyle. With so much information, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure of where to start. That’s why we take a personalized and investigative approach to our patient’s health. Our team of doctors, nutritionists, and therapists take the time to get to know our patients’ health histories, so we can identify the root causes of any health issues and empower them to take control of their lives. We believe that true wellness is more than just treating symptoms; it’s about taking care of the whole person.

Using advanced technology, like 3D Body Scans, we help our patients track their progress and make data-driven decisions. These scans provide comprehensive information on body composition, including body fat percentage, lean muscle mass, and subcutaneous fat measurements. By analyzing this information, we create a personalized plan to achieve health and fitness goals. We believe in the power of functional change and breakthroughs and use the latest technology to help our patients achieve optimal health.

Have you heard of NAD+? This is a molecule that is naturally present in our bodies and plays a crucial role in keeping us healthy, energetic, and functioning well. It’s like the superhero of our bodies! As we age and experience stress, the levels of NAD+ in our bodies can decrease, leading to a decline in our mental and physical well-being. This decline can leave us feeling tired, unproductive, and just not ourselves. By boosting NAD+ levels with infusion therapy, we can restore balance at a cellular level and help you feel like your best self again.

Everyone’s health journey is unique, but what matters most is to maintain your health in the long run which is why we offer a range of services. From nutritional counseling and hormone therapy to IV therapy and mental health counseling, taking a holistic approach to wellness is the driving force for a fulfilling life.
