Have a Healthy Body, Eat Right and Live Longer

t is near impossible to eat the required daily amounts of necessary vitamins, minerals and all that our bodies require for optimal performance in any one given day. Optimal performance means waking up in the morning fuelled with ample energy to take on every day with clear thoughts for managing our challenges effectively. A strong musculoskeletal system for good posture and circulation, as well as a clear communication system between the body and the mind.

We would need boxes of fresh fruit and vegetables picked fresh from our own backyard gardens on a daily basis. We would have had to start this diet plan when we were very young to avoid any free radical damage that happens over time as we are exposed to the elements of too much smog, too much smoke, too much chemical from cleaners, air fresheners, second hand smoke, dirty engines, paints, solvents, nail polish, preservatives and the list can go on. As the body is exposed, the damage starts and in most cases the problem begins very small inside the body and then by the time we feel or see the symptoms, the problem has grown to a point that the body itself can not heal on its own and requires support for the healing system to function and repair the damage. The human body is an amazing biological operating system. It will continue to function to the best of its ability, taking whatever resources that it needs from anywhere in the body and this results in system problems and difficulty targeting the cause, because ultimately if we do not give our body the tools it needs to operate in its ideal form, it will eventually begin to break down. There is no alternative. The cells in a human body are always regenerating or degenerating. It is imperative that we give our body the nutrition it needs, not only for maintaining a healthy body but also for growth and development of healthy new cells. The cells are the building blocks for the whole body. Healthy cells make healthy organs and from that we get healthy systems and ultimately an entire healthy body. We will not have a healthy body without healthy cells and we will not get healthy cells unless we are feeding our body with healthy cell food. Not food that is too sweet, or too salty, or too greasy, or too patsy, or too big.

What is food…?

Food is one of the components of fuel from which the human body gets the vitamins, minerals and nutrients it needs for life, for healing, for growth and for protection.

Many people grew up thinking that when it came out of a box a bag or a can, they were getting the good stuff…aarrggghhh In most cases, if it is processed, there is not much if anything left in it for the human biological system’s needs. It is filler and more often than not, not only do we not get any nutritional value from it but it does give the body more foreign substance to deal with, (hmm there seems to be no use for this, lets store it…) and more stress on the system. Years and years ago, it was common place for people to grow their own food, fruits and vegetables in a garden and buy meat from the local butcher. At this time people are still working for their food. As time goes on, people are looking for shortcuts and fast foods because there is no time to prepare and with little or no education with regards to the relationship between nutrition and the human body, they end up feeding it stuff that contains little or no nutritional content. After living most of, or even part of a lifetime without any nutritional support, the body systems fail to heal and the results are clear everywhere around us. We now have an aging population with more than a few health challenges and they are expecting the doctors and health care people to fix the sickness that has been caused by an ongoing nutritional deficit in the diet. If we want our body to work optimally, it is our responsibility to understand how it works and take care of it to the best of our ability.

With the knowledge that our bodies have specific nutritional requirements and the ability to research and ensure that we are taking care of what is most important first- CELL FOOD- Healthy cells make healthy organs make healthy systems make healthy amazing body, we can live a long active life experience instead of one that is stricken with sickness or disease of the mind and body.

Healthy Body Healthy Mind Tips

There are a wide variety of ways to improve your general health and fitness, no matter what age you are. The problem that most of us have with making the change to a healthier lifestyle is life. Yes life gets in the way! Convenience food and tasty snacks are more often than not the single most common reason for failure. But it doesn’t have to be that way! As long as you make the decision to improve your diet and general fitness RIGHT NOW and accept that there will be blips along the way (this doesn’t mean total failure and that you should stop moving towards your goals), you are in the perfect position to get started TODAY.

This transformation that you are starting today starts in one place; your mind. Your mind is the key and if you can stay motivated at the beginning, you will find that your new healthy mind will soon have a healthy body to match. Here are some tips for achieving a healthy body and a healthy mind.

A good diet doesn’t have to be perfect

Just because the new you is determined to achieve a healthy body, that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the foods that you enjoy. There is only one catch; MODERATION. Treating yourself to a naughty meal or snack once or twice a month can be the best way to keep your mind motivated whilst not doing any real harm to your sustained diet.


Not surprisingly regular exercise is a very important factor for both your body and mind. Now I’m not suggesting you sign up for the next marathon, simple daily exercises can include cycling to work, walking instead of driving, playing sport, engaging in physical activities with your children. The possibilities are endless. All you need to do is make sure that you are pushing your physical boundaries each day.

Healthy you, healthy pocket

Buying convenience or fast food whilst at work or out and about can not only be bad for your body, it can also be extremely harmful to your wallet! Spending a little more on healthy alternatives at the supermarket and packing your own lunch can have a huge positive impact on your health and bank balance.


As you know by now, a healthy mind is the key to a healthy body. Stress can make a significant impact on your ability to embrace your new lifestyle. Assign specific time each day to relax and unwind also making sure that you get plenty of sleep has a substantial effect on mental health. Having some “down time” before bed perhaps reading or meditating is a great way to relax and preparing your mind for sleep.


Camping, hiking and other outdoor activities with friends and family are great ways to improve your fitness and catch up. Eating with your family away from the TV can do wonders for your mental health and help you reconnect with those that are most important to you.

As you can see, a healthy body and a healthy mind are made up of many factors, the key is figuring out what works best for you. By thinking actively about how you can improve these areas in your life, you will soon find a method that works best for you.
