Title: The Triad Of A Healthy Lifestyle

The Triad Of A Healthy Lifestyle
Nowadays, people are dying before their time and
from diseases that are highly preventable through
simple lifestyle changes. The World Health
Organization revealed that the leading cause of
death is not anymore infectious diseases but no
communicable diseases (NCDs). NCDs were
responsible for 68 of all deaths globally in
2012, up from 60 in 2000. The four main NCDs are
cardiovascular diseases, cancers, diabetes and
chronic lung diseases. These leading killer
diseases are also called degenerative or
lifestyle diseases. Compared to infectious
diseases, lifestyle diseases are not caught like
the flu nor do they develop overnight. You can
hug, kiss, or make love with someone with
diabetes and you are not at risk of contracting
the disease.
On the contrary, lifestyle diseases develop over
a long period of time that they do not alarm us
in any way.  A little neglect here and there a
scoop of ice cream, a few French fries, a sip of
soda, overeating, skipping exercise these
things do not hurt us instantly. And because of
that, we are bound to repeat them until they
eventually become our habit. Then one day, we
receive the shock of our lives. We have cancer!
But how come, we ask. No one in my family ever
had cancer. That is right. And it is probably
because our descendants had a different lifestyle
than ours. They ate food straight from their
garden. They moved around a lot. They did not
worry too much. They had lesser pollution. So you
see, these degenerative diseases are not
necessarily genetic. We also acquire them through
our lifestyle. The great news is they are easily
preventable and reversible in some cases with
discipline and the right choices in how we live
our lives. We have to understand that we do not
become healthy by chance.  Health is a choice.
Dr. Ray Strand, a specialist in nutritional
medicine and best-selling author of What Your
Doctor Doesnt Know About Nutritional Medicine Is
Killing You says there is a triad to a healthy
lifestyle. That is a healthy diet that does
not spike ones blood sugar a moderate,
consistent exercise program and taking
high-quality nutritional supplements for cellular
nutrition. The secret, he says, lies in all
three being implemented in a carefully balanced
Diet is a huge factor in our health. By choosing
the right kind of foods, we can maintain a
healthy body and reduce our risk of illness. Food
is meant to nourish and heal us if we make the
right choices. Nowadays, diet plans have become
popular because of obesity and obesity-related
illnesses. The thing with diet programs is they
work in the short term only. If it says lose 10
pounds in a week using our planned meals, more
or less we will indeed lose those ten pounds but
we are sure to get them back and more. That is
because after the program, we go back to our
usual unhealthy diet.
Another issue with diet program meals is that
they can be more expensive and sometimes their
ingredients are hard to find that they are
unsustainable. It is important that our diet is
something we can sustain for life and not only
for a week or a month if we intend to live
longer. Titanium Success released a Food Guide
identifying what to eliminate, what to avoid,
what not to overdo, and what to have a more of.
The Guide provides a wide array of options that
we can mix and match so we do not have to endure
boring planned meals.
  • Physical inactivity is as much of a health risk
    as smoking! Our body is created for movement that
    if we do not move often enough, it will start to
    deteriorate in its efficiency. Our organs like
    the heart and lungs will not function well our
    joints will become rigid and our muscles saggy.
    But for many of us, exercise is too
    time-consuming especially if our kind of exercise
    is going to the gym. A one-hour schedule could
    stretch on to three hours to include travel to
    and from and taking shower after. That is why
    when we get too busy, we begin skipping going to
    the gym and before we know it, skipping has
    become our norm.
  • A solution to this is to develop an exercise
    program that easily fits into our lifestyle. It
    could be taking the stairs at work or in the
    mall, parking far so we have an opportunity to
    walk to our destination, walking the dog in the
    neighborhood, playing with the kids at home, or
    doing household chores. These things are easily
    embedded in our daily routine. If one is obese
    though, he or she may need to do more but for
    regular people trying to shed off a little weight
    or maintain their weight, these activities are

  • Gone are the days when we got all our nutritional
    requirements from food. Our soil is depleted from
    minerals. Farming practices are highly
    commercialized. Foods are grown in unnatural
    ways. These have resulted in the sharp reduction
    of the vitamin and mineral contents of the food
    that reach our dinner table.
  • This is one of the reasons that the Journal of
    American Medical Association has reversed its
    stand against supplementation. Acknowledging the
    fact that we cannot get optimal amount of all
    vitamins from diet alone, Drs. Fletcher and
    Fairfield of Harvard University who wrote JAMAs
    new guidelines said that Sub-optimal intake of
    some vitamins, above levels causing classic
    vitamin deficiency, is a risk factor for chronic
    diseases and common in the general population,
    especially the elderly. They further say that,
    it appears prudent for all adults to take
    vitamin supplements. Physicians should make
    specific efforts to learn about their patients
    use of vitamins to ensure that they are taking
    vitamins they should.

  • However, we should be careful to take only the
    best quality supplement because we might be
    harming ourselves more by taking the wrong kind.
    We should also beware of popular supplements
    advertised by celebrities because celebrities are
    not nutrition experts. We can check reviews of
    experts and authorities like a nutrition doctor
    or the Food and Drugs Administration for safety
    and effectiveness to make sure we are getting our
    moneys worth.
