Health & Fitness


WHO (World Health Organization) defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.


Everybody wants to be fit and healthy.  One may not realize the value of health and fitness until something happens to cause the individual to be unable to go about normal day to day life as they would love to or as have previously done without giving it much thought.  Aches and pains can be a major inconvenience or inhibition to leading what one may term as a fulfilling life.  There are many factors which lead to a perfectly healthy person being unhealthy and unfit.  Some of those may include:


Factors Affecting Health and Fitness

  1. Overeating or excessive eating habits.
  2. Lack of enough physical and mental exercise.
  3. Lack of enough sleep.
  4. Eating the 'wrong' foods which lack sufficient nutrients.
  5. Not eating food with the right nutrients required for the body's optimum health.


Luckily, there are many natural ways one can incorporate in their lives to help reverse the 'damage' already done or to live a healthier and 'fitter' life. These include:


  1. Developing a daily exercise routine even if it is just a 30 minute walk.
  2. Carrying out a detox at least once a year to rid the body of toxins.
  3. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, preferably organic.
  4. Eliminating 'junk' food from one's diet or reducing intake to as little as possible.
  5. Taking food supplements to up minerals.
  6. Eating just enough portions at regular times and avoiding too much snacking between meals.
