You didn’t get sick overnight and feeling better is going to take dedication and patience. There aren’t any overnight miracles.  Be assured, however, that feeling better can be achieved through some moderate lifestyle changes involving adequate and proper nutrition, exercise, and the right health supplements.

Nutrition – Eat a rainbow diet. That means you should be eating a mix of organic fruits and vegetables with every meal. Cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage and bok choy and fruit help promote cardiovascular health and overall longevity.1 The best way to get your antioxidants is through a healthy diet to help fight cancer, cardiovascular disease and other illnesses.  More info >

Exercise – One of the best ways to bolster a healthy immune system is through frequent moderate exercise. Adults need to focus on cardiovascular health as a defense against a host of illnesses. Aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise at least five days a week; there is no need to be too intense as that could be counterproductive.2  More info >

Vitamins & Supplements – Take daily multivitamins and supplements to make up for deficiencies in your diet, but not to replace a healthy diet. Getting the proper dosage of essential vitamins, minerals, micronutrients and antioxidants is important for ensuring optimal nutrition while helping to support daily metabolic processes, to reduce cellular damage from free radicals, and sustain your immune system for healthy aging. *  More info >
