Dr. Ellie’s Health Tip of the Month: A lot of stuff happens in the health field. Everyday research comes out giving us new information to help us live healthier lives and improve our quality of life. Some of this news falls on deaf ears and people ignore the science of good health continuing detrimental habits and eating rituals that contribute to ill health. Here is the good news: an ever increasing segment of the population is listening to the latest health news and applying it to their own lives. This is evidenced by the fact that all of the major supermarket chains and grocery outlet stores all have organic food sections. The organic selections are growing larger each month with bigger and better choices in the meat, dairy and produce departments. Even drug stores are selling alternative treatments for common every day illnesses. Homeopathic remedies are readily available in CVS and Walgreens. And both of these stores along with the big supermarkets have huge vitamin supplement sections and healthy food and snack aisles. In addition, annual office visits to chiropractors, acupuncturists, nutritionists and massage therapists have increased exponentially over the last few years as people are searching for drug-free approaches to health care. Memberships in fitness centers have reached record numbers. Fitness is no longer a fad or trend. It has become an essential life style ingredient that fosters good health. 10 years ago, yoga was a small part of the fitness industry. Now, new yoga studios are in every town and flourishing. Exercise classes are full and personal training is a legitimate profession where a certified practitioner can make a living helping people exercise their way to good health. Time magazine recently reported that one day the life expectancy may reach 142. In our generation, we will see more and more people living active, productive lives at the age of 100. And it’s all because of the latest advances in the health field. Positive research in nutrition and exercise are helping us to be healthier and live longer. The key is paying attention to the info and applying it to your own lives. Eat healthy organic foods, exercise, take vitamins, drink good water, get plenty of rest, manage stress and nurture your nervous system. Paying attention to all of these areas will get you to the healthy age of 100!
