So what exactly is Optimal Health? It's considered a synergistic balance of your physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and intellectual health…or in other words, your Lifestyle.

Some important goals to set for reaching optimal health can be: Increase confidence and overall wellness; maintain a positive mental attitude; Reduce stress and anxiety; Increase happiness in the workplace and a happier life outside it.

So, let's look at these 5 Key Steps toward Optimal Health.

Move Your Body

Regular physical activity is one of the MOST IMPORTANT things you can do for your health. Being physically active can improve your brain function, help manage or lose weight, reduce the risk of certain diseases, strengthen your bones and muscles, and improve your ability to accomplish everyday tasks.

Also, moving your body releases endorphins and helps to relieve stress. It allows you to take a break from everyday challenges and responsibilities and helps emotions move through our bodies.

Be intent to move around MORE this year!

Balance your Hormones

We’ve said it before and of course we’ll say it again: Balance Hormones are key to being healthy.

Hormones are are the body's chemical messengers. They send signals into the bloodstream and tissues. Hormones work over time, and affect growth and development, metabolism (how your body gets energy from the foods you eat), sexual function, reproduction, and your mood.

Many people suffering from hormonal imbalances have reported symptoms like: low energy, trouble concentrating, moodiness and irritability, poor sleep, insomnia, depression, increased body fat, hot flashes, cold hands and feet, hair loss and low sex drive.

If you have been living with symptoms similar to these, we encourage you to visit a HTCA certified provider to take a simple blood test and see if hormone optimization therapy is right for you.

Fix Your Digestive System

The digestive system breaks down food into nutrients (carbohydrates, fats and proteins). They can then be absorbed into the bloodstream for the body to use them for energy, growth and repair. Unused materials are discarded.

Poor digestion can be caused by bacteria in food, infections, stress, medications, or medical conditions (colitis, Crohn's disease, IBS and more). This can lead you to feel frequent discomfort, gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn and many report feeling tired all the time.

No matter the cause, anyone who has frequent digestive problems faces daily challenges. To keep your digestive system healthy: Keep your weight in the healthy range, Eat a healthy diet, Exercise several times a week, Learn different ways to reduce stress, and Take Probiotics regularly.

Balance Your Adrenals

Adrenal glands produce hormones that help regulate your metabolism, immune system, blood pressure, response to stress and other essential functions.

Symptoms of Adrenal Disorders can Include: Upper body obesity, Skin problems, High blood pressure, Muscle and bone weakness, Moodiness, irritability, or depression and High blood sugars.

Starting an exercise program, eating healthy foods, and following a daily routine for sleeping are all good ways to start healing adrenal issues.

Clean Out your Liver

Over time, conditions that damage the liver can lead to scarring (cirrhosis), which in turn can cause liver failure, a life-threatening situation. Early treatment may give the liver time to heal, so we recommend being mindful of caring for your liver.

Tips for a Healthy Liver can include:

Be careful of indulgent alcohol consumption, thoroughly clean produce and herbs to avoid ingesting toxins, exercise and eat healthy foods, take supplements that can help to aide liver function.

Turmeric is a powerful spice that is shown to help to maintain a healthy liver by protecting against liver damage and regenerating healthy liver cells. Artichoke has also been shown to have healing properties that may benefit the liver.

Remember when you set your goals to be realistic and purposeful with your plan.

Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!
