If your 2020 New Year resolution is to create healthy lifestyle habits, we are here to help you with your health journey.
Being healthy isn’t simply about your physical transformation; it is about your over-all health- mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, and also your energy.
Before you even begin with the change you need to know that it is okay to fall back and slip up. Everyone has their moments of weakness, but it’s what you do habitually over time that counts the most. It is your everyday effort and a little help from Complementary and Alternative Medicine(CAM) practitioners that will make an impact on your general health and well-being.
Here’s how complementary and alternative therapies such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, homeopathy, massage therapy, naturopathy, and others can help you:
Routine holds much importance in holistic medicine. You must have probably experienced it when you have a good routine, life seems to flow and there somehow is more time in the day. Follow a good routine that includes time for exercise, meditation and time for your own self.
- HEALTHY EATING
Simple changes and you are off to a great start. Eating a healthy and balanced diet is important to keep your body nourished and your energies high. It is only when the energy is high and positive you will have the motivation to move out of your comfort zone. Consult a Naturopath or a Holistic Nutritionist to help you kick off your healthy eating habit.
- TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY PAINS
Starting off with something good is difficult if you are hurting day in and day out. If you are suffering from regular headaches or body aches you should get it treated. Acupuncture, a form of traditional Chinese medicine preferred by many as it’s a drug-free treatment helps to improve the overall health. An acupuncturist inserts fine needles into specific points in your body to treat and significantly improve:
- Body aches
- Eating disorders
- Symptoms of depression
- Physical health
- Mental health
- Sense of control
- KICK OFF UNHEALTHY HABITS
A healthy lifestyle involves adopting a few healthy habits while leaving a few unhealthy ones. Smoking, alcohol consumption, substance abuse and other such habits harm not only your overall wellbeing but also of those close to you. Take advantage of relaxation therapy that may include massage therapy, naturopathy, aromatherapy and a combination of other alternative therapies.
Regular massages can increase levels of serotonin and dopamine helping decrease levels of depression, anxiety, and stress. Aromatherapy and meditation may result in similar benefits helping you kick off the addiction of any kind. Mindful meditation can:
- Reduce emotional and binge eating
- Increase self-acceptance
- Improve awareness of your body
- Help with anxiety, addiction and pain management
If you wish to see yourself or someone close to you healthy and happy in the New Year 2020 start with a healthy mindset. It is your positive mindset and energy that will charge, motivate and manifest your goals in every facet of your life. Take the help of CAM advisors to guide and inspire you for a healthier 2020.
Celebrate your little victories and stay positive!
