Who Else Wants to Make Their Body Younger, Have More Energy and Decrease Your Risk of Heart Disease, Stroke, Cancer, and Mental Dysfunction?

29 Dec

Our basic premise is that your body is amazing.  You get a do over. It doesn’t take that long, and it isn’t that hard if you know what to do.  In these notes, we give you a short course in what to do so it becomes easy for you, and for you to teach others. We want you to know how much control you have over both the  quality and length of your life.

If you want to make your body younger, have more energy, and decrease your risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, and mental dysfunction by at least 80%, then the researchers who studied the men of Sweden, nurses from the United States, and patients at multiple locations, including the Cleveland Clinic, want you to know that making these five choices can help you do just that:

Choice #1: Eat a diet with less than four ounces of red meat a week, five servings of fruits and vegetables a day, only whole grains, and no added sugars or syrups.

Choice #2: Do at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day (this includes walking).

Choice #3: Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) under 25.

Choice #4: Avoid all tobacco products.

Choice #5: Drink only a moderate amount (less than two drinks) of alcohol per day, and never more.

While the Swedish men, nurses, and patients who made all five choices managed to cut their risk for heart disease, stroke, cancer, and mental dysfunction by at least 80%, the sad truth is that the numbers only accounts for 4% of those studied.

But, it may not be too late for you, even if you aren’t currently doing any of the five things listed above! You can always start making healthier choices now, even if you’ve already had a heart attack. Get your plan together today.

Thanks for reading. And feel free to send more questions, you can always send us questions at youdocs@gmail.com, and some of them we may know enough to answer (we’ll try to get answers for you if we do not know).
