Rise in chronic diseases: Are you being proactive?

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently released information focusing on the number of people with diabetes, and how that number has more than quadrupled since 1980. What this means is that 400 million people across the globe are now suffering with this chronic disease. It is estimated that this costs more than $820 billion annually. In addition to this finding, WHO linked the rise in diabetes to the rise in obesity. Basically, the lifestyles we are living are killing us. 

With numbers this big, it raises a question, “What are you doing to protect yourself from this chronic disease?” Many people aren’t doing anything. Often, we tell ourselves that we will start living a healthier lifestyle tomorrow, but for many people tomorrow comes too late, if at all. It is time to start acting in favor of improving yourself today, not tomorrow. 

There is so much information out there, where do I begin?

This is a problem that many of us face when trying to turn a new leaf in the interest of our health and well-being. Look, there is a ton of information out there about a wide variety of subjects, all claiming that it is “the way” to become healthy. The truth is, there is no one way to become healthy. The proper route to really living a healthy lifestyle is incorporating a combination of different things — from eating a proper diet, exercising, getting enough sleep and managing stress. 

Most importantly, it is about the food you are putting into your body daily. Think of it this way, to get the greatest longevity out of your vehicle’s engine, it is important to get regular oil changes and use a higher-grade oil. If you don’t take care of your vehicle, and use the worst oil just because it is cheap, the lifespan of your vehicle will be much less. It is the same way with your body — if you keep putting the inexpensive, processed foods filled with additives, chemicals, dyes, etc. into your body, your lifespan will be much shorter as well. This does not mean you need to join a fancy program where you’re drinking shakes instead of eating meals, or counting points instead of looking at ingredients. Learning how to eat all the whole, low-glycemic foods in a healthy balance is the best way to go.
