3 Ways to be Healthier this Spring

Author: Dr. Quinte Naturopathic Centre on 30 March 2015

I recently had a patient ask me what my secret was to always looking healthy, energetic, and young? I actually got a little embarrassed because I really don't feel like I have a secret. It made me start thinking, if she had this question I'm sure a lot of other people do to.


So here's my answer. Good health boils down to a few basic things. The trick is to keep doing them consistently over time. Sure it's easy to eat well for one meal but it takes a lot more effort, planning, and commitment to eat well every meal for a year. Get to the gym once. No problem. Keep going consistently? That's another story, especially when you have other commitments stealing away your time. And the hardest one of all...manage your stress in a healthy way.


So what are the basic things I'm talking about. I love the way Dr. Robert Rakowski has termed them as the Magnificent 7. Focus on these 7 things and optimal health is most certainly yours.

Eat Right. Drink Right. Sleep Right. Move Right. Poop Right. Think Right. Talk Right.

Lucky for you, here's how we can help you. Take advantage of these 3 opportunities to help you feel healthy and energetic while turning back the clock on your cellular age.
