If your health is not as good as you would like then following a healthier lifestyle may benefit you immensely. You want to eliminate as much processed foods as possible as well as grains and sodium. Eat fresh and organic products whenever possible.
Start on an exercise program. This can be as simple as walking for starters. If you are out of shape take it easy at first. Gradually increase your activities as you grow accustom to the increased physical exertion. Please consult with your physician before you begin.
Others things to consider are eliminating tobacco, excess alcohol and fast foods. Maintain a healthy diet and don't overeat.
Diet: Eat plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits. Choose raw and organic for extra nutrients and optional health. Include foods high in calcium, magnesium and potassium. Consume herbs and foods such as garlic, onions and hawthorn. Supplement with a good multi vitamin and Co Q10.
