Movement is Life. Exercise is an essential nutrient. There is no pill or surgery that can replace exercise and it is essential because our bodies REQUIRE it. Foresight family chiropractic care in Mesa helps optimize movement in the spine.
A healthy lifestyle is the only evidence-based, cost-effective solution for wellness and prevention. You can be absolutely CERTAIN that your lifestyle choices give you the power and control of your own health destiny. When you learn how important what you eat, how you move and how you think, are to prevent illness – you will want to make the changes for yourself and your children. A breakthrough study regarding the paradigm shift from Sickness and Treatment to Wellness and Prevention, (Hyman et al. 2009) emphatically states lifestyle needs to become the foundation of all healthcare.
Dr. Dean Ornish took patients diagnosed with prostate cancer and put them through a three month lifestyle program that included changes in diet, a 30-minute daily walk and an hour of stress reduction. The gene expression patterns of these men shifted away from the pattern seen in cancer and toward a pattern reflecting wellness and prevention.
Just a few of the benefits seen with a minimum of 30 minutes of brisk walking a day are listed below. 30 minutes a day does not represent the best amount of time for optimal health provides amazing results.
