frequently say that when you have your health, you have just about everything.
I couldn’t agree more; in fact, your health is your greatest asset and an area
of life that you should spare no expense to maintain! Possessions, homes, and
cars can usually be replaced. When you lose your health, those items no longer
really matter and it can be difficult to impossible to regain health once it is
healthy requires some effort. An understanding that an ounce of prevention is
worth a pound of cure is critical. For someone who is overweight and out of
shape, it takes even more work as what would be thought of as maintenance steps
will not be effective enough to overcome the decayed health condition present.
Staying healthy is a bit easier, but it still requires some effort.
in mind, here are twelve of the interconnected benefits of good health.
Cardiovascular: When the cardiovascular system doesn’t work properly, people feel
it. Heart problems slow people down and keep them from being able to do many
things. On the other hand, a healthy heart provides a fundamental step in
keeping the body healthy and nutrients getting to all the right places. It
provides endurance for running, swimming, climbing mountains, and doing the
things that you love to do!
General strength: For most people, lifting things is part of everyday life. Whether
the object being lifted is a baby, a bag of groceries, or a piece of furniture
that needs to be moved, a person’s ability to lift is part of his or her
overall strength. The stronger a person is, the more he or she can lift
comfortably. For people who aren’t very strong, lifting objects that are too
heavy can lead to injuries. Sometimes weaknesses can lead to poor movement
patterns, handicaps, and pain.
Core stability and balance: One thing that can become a serious challenge as human beings grow
older is maintaining a good sense of balance. When an elderly person loses his
or her sense of balance, there may be falls which result in injuries. Having a
good strong core produces the balance we need.
Clarity of thinking: When you’re in good health, you think more clearly. It’s easier to
figure things out and make good decisions. In the information age, thinking is
an important part of almost every job. Whether you’re thinking about your work,
family matters, or how to get home through heavy traffic, being in good health
helps keep you focused.
Mental health: We all know the importance of dental hygiene, but what about mental
hygiene? A healthy mind and a healthy body go together. Very often when a
person is suffering from serious mental illness, it can be tracked back to a
chemical imbalance that has been going on for a long time.
Peace of mind: With all the devices people now have and all the information we have
coming at us all the time, peace of mind can be elusive. Finding peace of mind
and holding onto it are by-products of good health. Doing things that unravel
your days and stresses can lead to much better on and off times for your life!
Sleep: Sleep is critical for health as it is at this time your body is
resting and healing! In fact it is also when your body burns fat! People who
are overweight may be prone to having sleep apnea, which can be a deadly
problem. Losing weight and getting in shape is a much better solution to that
problem. Musculoskeletal health also comes into play for good sleep. When
something is out of alignment, it can cause the kind of discomfort that keeps
people tossing and turning at night. Thus, getting into alignment through
specific scientific chiropractic care can play a big part in getting a good
Weight control: When the metabolism is operating like a well-oiled machine, you burn
more energy. Getting the metabolism to run well requires a balance of numerous
factors. This includes consuming the proper nutrients, lack of disruptive foods, proper
supplementation, hormone balance, and numerous other items. Some people are
born with a fast metabolism and others aren’t. The good thing is that steps can
be taken to get the metabolism in balance and improved!
Good sex life: When that part of a person’s life is going well, it contributes to
an overall sense of wellbeing. However, having a good sex life can be
challenging when there are health issues. If some part of the musculoskeletal
system is out of alignment, it can be a challenge simply to move some parts of
the body. Also, if the cardiovascular system is not in proper working order, a
person may not have the endurance to have a satisfying sex life. Good health
and a good sex life go together very naturally.
Ability to fight disease and
recover from injuries: Everyone experiences attacks on their immune
systems from time to time. Part of good health is having an immune system that
is ready and able to overcome attacks. The immune system also plays a big
part in healing from injuries. When the immune system is working as it
should, injuries heal relatively quickly. When the immune system is not working
so well, healing can take longer.
Higher energy level: Good health provides energy. It’s somewhat like the engine in a car.
When all the components are in good working order, the car functions properly.
If the cooling system fails or all the oil leaks out, the car will run poorly
or it will stop running entirely.
Long life and prosperity: On Star Trek, whenever Mr. Spock was parting ways with a friend, he
would say, “Live long and prosper.” Most people would like to live long and
prosper. Good health is the key to doing exactly that.

and maintaining a healthy weight. Dr. Thomas has
helped hundreds of patients lose thousands of pounds and keep the weight off.
It’s not all about the numbers on the scale. Resetting the metabolism is the
key to keeping weight off after a person loses it.
Fitness. Exercise increases muscle mass and decreases
excess fat. It is also essential for long-term health and wellness. An effective
workout plan can help people to burn fat and get into optimal shape in short
health and the central nervous system. The spinal
column protects the spinal cord. Messages from the brain flow through the
spinal cord and nerves to the rest of the body. If the spinal column is out of
alignment, the result is a communication blockage.
