Getting back to the basics of health

The longer I am in practice the more I realize that many have lost their way when it comes to their health. What was just part of our way of life in the 1930's and 1940's now seems so foreign to us. Grandma's old wisdom is now scoffed at to our own health demise. This will be a very short post as I return to blogging world again. If you are having trouble with your health, as with any other issues, go back to the basics:

1. More fresh clean water: 1 quart of water for every 50 lbs of body weight

2. Fresh Air: Open the windows in the house and get outside more in the fresh air

3. Exercise: Get moving again 30 minutes of exercise 4 times per week, (walking is fine)

4. Eat a balanced, whole food, organic diet (in smaller portions then you do now if you are overweight and on smaller plates)

5. Get more sleep: Many health conditions are fixed by getting proper sleep

6. Build community in your town, workplace, church and family.
