What is health comprised of?
Eat healthy to be healthy
You are what you eat. That means that if you eat healthy, you will be healthy. Providing the body with all the necessary nutrients helps it protect itself from disease.
The number one thing that stems from healthy eating is minimal chance of developing obesity, which in turn causes many other health issues, such as type 2 Diabetes, Osteoporosis, strokes and heart problems. Obesity can also weaken your bone structure and overwork your organs. Avoid unnecessary risks and opt for a healthy lifestyle starting today.
Ability to Recover from Illnesses
The bodily recovery system is a vast and intricate one. When you hurt yourself, white blood cells speed to the location of the injury to hinder infection. Other blood cells change into hunters to consume dead tissue and reduce swelling. If you break a bone, bone cells begin to sew back together the rough edges. In the case of severe treatments for cancer or hepatitis, cell damage gets healed by the same groups of cells.
In order for all these functions to play out properly, each organ in the body needs a specific set of nutrients, and it’s important that we provide them with these nutrients in order to promote our own longevity and good shape.
5 Ways to Be Healthy
Eat a Balanced Diet
Always be sure to consume a lot of water. Vegetables, healthy carbs, fats and protein should be a part of every meal. Go for whole grain options as opposed to processed foods or foods that are high in trans fats and sugars.
On average, you should be getting approximately 30 minutes of moderate to strenuous exercise on a daily basis. If you live a busy life (like we all do these days), this can be broken up into increments or else incorporated into daily activities.
- Taking the stairs instead of the elevator
- Walking to places that are close to your home/office
- Taking a brief walk within working hours.
You should have a healthy Body Mass Index (BMI). This calculation factors in your age, weight and height and should deliver a result of between 18,5 and 24,9 in healthy individuals.
One of the best things you can do for yourself is to relax more. Stress affects your entire body in different ways. It can make you feel agitated, overwhelmed and unconfident. It causes forgetfulness, inability to focus and pessimism. And it leads to low energy levels, insomnia and tense muscles.
This is why practices like yoga, meditation or simply just taking some time off is vital to a healthy lifestyle.
Quality sleep is essential to physical, mental and emotional well-being. When we sleep, our brains process the events of the day and prepares for the next day.
While you sleep, your heart and blood vessels go into a healing process to repair any cells that may have been damaged from the day’s activities.
There are also a lot of other reasons why a healthy sleeping cycle is important to healthy living. It decreases the risk of obesity and maintains a healthy level of hormones.
How EMS Machines Increase Your Health
EMS (Electric Muscle Stimulation) machines are on the fast track to becoming the answer to most of our bodily problems. By sending a mild electric signal through your body, the EMS device evokes a muscular contraction in the deeper muscle fibres that we usually overlook when exercising. More blood flow is stimulated to the targeted muscle group, and with the increased blood flow, you are able to sustain more intense exercising.
The Focus on Blood Flow
The electrical impulses that are sent by the EMS machine relieves muscle tension and minimizes stiffness in the joints that cause restrictions in the blood flow. After one treatment an overall feeling of well-being is experienced.
Increased blood flow also enables the body to deliver nutrients and oxygen to the rest of the body more efficiently, thereby keeping all the organs and bodily functions running smoothly.
3 Other Benefits of EMS
- With the electric stimulus offered by the machine, the increased blood flow delivers more oxygen to the muscles, which improves the strength and stamina of the muscles.
- EMS can be used to curb the effects of a muscular injury by strengthening and toning the muscles.
- EMS is often used to relieve pained muscles and joints with multiple uses of the machines.
