When it comes to either chronic health conditions or a troubling diagnosis, many of us feel powerless in the face of what is happening to us or to a loved one.
But the fact is the body is an amazing, resilient piece of equipment, and given the proper fuel, rest, and care, it can help us fight disease and perhaps overcome insurmountable odds.
We, however, need to help our bodies.
Make sure you are getting enough sleep. The body regenerates as we rest, and if we can’t squeeze in more than a few hours, we may lose some of this benefit. Lack of sleep can also affect how (and what) we eat, stress level, and our motivation to exercise, which in turn can make us even more lethargic.
Don’t underestimate a daily walk or a trip to the gym a few times a week. Exercise helps to keep our blood pressure and stress level down, it can contribute to a stronger immune system, and can make us produce more endorphins, the “feel-good” hormone. Not to mention, exercise tends to keep our weight in check, making us look and feel great!
Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables and cutting back on sugar and fats can help give your body the proper nutrition and fuel it craves. Taking nutritional supplements can also contribute to better health.
If you or a loved one is struggling with a health condition or disease, eating right, getting enough sleep, and exercising as much as possible all help to empower our bodies to be as strong and resilient as they can be, even when facing adversity. Be strong and be well.
