There is no doubt that a healthy lifestyle improves the length of life as well as the quality of life. The earlier in life we begin implementing a program of health and wellness the better off we will be. No matter what age we are today, we can all help ourselves to a healthier, happier life. Why not start now!
The key to a healthy lifestyle is making healthy choices. We must learn about the benefits of nutrition and exercise, and the damage caused by unhealthy habits like tobacco use, excessive alcohol consumption and poor diet. Understanding the key components of healthy living will help you make those good choices.
A healthy lifestyle begins with the basics of proper nutrition. A healthy diet is one that is low in fat and high in fibre, with an emphasis on fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, and whole grains. Foods should be low in sodium content, with no chemical additives or refined sugars. Since water is also an essential nutrient, we should drink plenty of fresh clean, filtered water every day. The water, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins from our daily food intake are the building-blocks of life. Eating fresh, pure food of the highest quality ensures a healthy body. “You are what you eat” is an absolutely true statement.
Another key to a healthy lifestyle is physical fitness. A program of regular exercise is absolutely vital to good health. Exercise improves respiratory and cardiovascular function. We breathe more and pump more blood when we are exercising. Actually, the entire body benefits from regular exercise. Exercise not only improves the delivery of more oxygen and nutrients throughout the entire body, but also enhances the excretion of carbon dioxide and waste products from the body. As a result, regular exercise increases our strength, stamina, and our energy. We not only feel better, but are healthier too.
A healthy lifestyle is one that is full of enjoyable healthy activities. Walks in nature, hobbies, music, or gardening are good examples. Not only can leisure activities be fun, they can reduce stress as well. Meditation and yoga are great stress-reducers too, and help to balance and centre the mind. Plenty of restful sleep refreshes and replenishes the body and mind as well.
As we choose to add more of the healthful foods and activities into our lives, we should also guard ourselves against the unhealthy ones. For example, we should avoid exposure to environmental pollutants, toxins, tobacco smoke, and artificial chemicals and food additives. Eliminating our exposure to toxins helps to keep our bodies clean and functioning at their peak.
Dietary supplements can also help with healthy living. They help to fill in the gaps of what your food may not be providing and insure maximum health. We recommend building a program of dietary supplementation beginning with core nutritionals. Core nutritionals provide critical nutrients that are difficult to acquire in meaningful quantities in our food.
Throughout Your Solution Centre, you may notice we always recommend a program consisting of these core nutritionals in addition to other health specific supplements. They truly are the foundation of a good wellness program.

|Essential fatty acids are “good fats” that are absolutely necessary for the reproduction of cells. We also need them as part of the many natural biochemical processes of the body. They are called “essential” because each cell in our body needs a supply of them each and every day. They are also called “essential” because they must be taken in from our diets or in supplement form. As part of a healthy lifestyle, supplementing daily with essential fatty acids helps to keep our bodies functioning at their peak. This formula combines the beneficial omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids which are most important to our health. Omega-3 EFAs are utilised by the body in several key areas that help influence general wellbeing.
