How You Can Stay Healthy and Avoid Practically Any Disease

Apr 15, 2008
I hear so many people say they don't want to live to be old. In fact, I was talking to my 45 year-old friend just the other day. She said she only wants to live to be 75. I told when she's 74, she might change her mind.

Her fear is (as is most people's), that getting old results in getting sick. But, I'm here to tell you, it doesn't have to be that way! Many of the diseases that are prevalent today are man-made. In other words, they're largely due to modern lifestyle habits such as:

~ Consistently subjecting oneself to stress
~ Consistently eating high fat foods
~ Consistently eating a diet low in nutrients
~ Neglecting exercise
~ Exposing oneself to environmental toxins

I'm going to make a statement that's gonna sound rather narrow minded, but I truly believe it... Nothing on the earth is more valuable than your health! Not your career, not your money, and not even your family!

I know what you may be thinking... "Nothing is more important to me than my family!"

Let me explain it this way; if you lose your health, your family is gonna suffer with you. Surely, you don't want that! So, if you truly value your family, then you should put a priority on your health and well being.

Now, there are three areas that will help us live long and healthy, and give us a better chance of avoiding degenerative diseases...

1. Balanced nutrition

A lot of the food we eat in today's world is over-processed with various chemicals and preservatives added to improve taste and increase shelf life. All this processing leads to nutritional deficiencies in our bodies.

Obviously, we should eat balanced meals and provide them for our families on a regular basis. But unfortunately, it can be rather difficult with all the demands that are placed on us day in and day out. That's why it's so important to include natural health supplements in our daily diets!

2. Physical activity

It's a well-known fact that exercise significantly lowers our chances of developing potentially fatal illnesses. One of the ways it does this is by eliminating stress.

So many of us are stressed beyond comprehension. We're so busy running around trying to get things done, we don't even realize how stressed we really are!

It's unfortunate that many of us don't even realize what stress is doing to our bodies! I don't want to go into it here, but it certainly is bad news! Just know that remaining active throughout your life will help you stay healthy and disability-free as you age.

3. Healthy lifestyle

Today's world is much more toxic than it use to be, and it seems to be getting worse! These toxins that we're constantly exposed to cause cellular damage. Therefore, making a deliberate effort to avoid excess food additives, second-hand smoke, and stress, to name just a few, will give us a fighting chance to preserve our health.


Making an effort to live a healthy lifestyle is critical! My 45 year old friend doesn't understand that - she's a smoker with no desire to quit. What does she expect? To live to be a healthy 75 year old, with hopes of just dropping dead in order to avoid sicknesses associated with old age? Well, if she doesn't make any effort, she may not even make it to 75.
