Three Health Problems You Can Avoid If You Start Now!

The thing about our health is that we actually can influence it. We have the power to affect how healthy we are by the choices we make in our lives. With that in mind check out three of the most common health conditions below that we can help avoid by looking after ourselves.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a condition where bone density is low, and the internal structure of the bone in the sufferer's body is porous in nature. That compromises the strength of the bones and the body's weight bearing capacity, making fractures and damage more likely.



The thing about osteoporosis is that some folks are more vulnerable to the condition. In particular, women that have been through the menopause can suffer from a fast reduction in bone density that leaves them much more usable to osteoporosis.

However, there are preventative measures that you can take now that will limit your chance of being affected. One of these is to check out the AlgaeCal reviews and the other information about calcium supplements online, to see if they would be beneficial to you.

Another is to ensure that you commit to doing regular exercises that require your skeleton to bear the body's full weight. Examples include weight lifting, running, and even simple walking as this can increase bone density no matter what your age and help you keep the risk factors of osteoporosis away. Although it is vital that you always consult with your doctor before you make any changes in your diet and exercise regime.

Obesity

Obesity is a health condition that we hear a lot about in the media at the moment as it is linked to many other serious health issues like diabetes and heart disease. Obesity can be classified as when you weight 20% over your recommended body weight for your height.


Preventing obesity is simple in theory, but also hard in practice as it entails eating a healthy balanced diet and regular exercise. It is also useful to rule out any underlying health condition that may be making it hard for you to lose weight, along with addressing the psychological relationship that you have with food.

Anxiety

OK, so anxiety is a funny one in that you may not be able to actually avoid it after all, anxiety and fear are a natural part of the human experience. However, you can certainly do things that will stop it becoming a real issue in your life and turning into a disorder that prevents you from doing the things that you love.


Anxiety is a mental and physical condition that can have a big effect on your health. Picture here

One of these is to practice mindfulness, the art of watching your mind and letting your thoughts and feelings come and go without judgment. This can work well in dealing with anxiety because instead of getting caught up in the worry and believing you have to do something about it, you can just let the thoughts and sensations come and go and focus on the things that are important in your life.

It is this letting go that is so vital in the fight against anxiety disorders because it is often the way that we react to scary thoughts that is the cause the problem and can lead to conditions like generalized anxiety disorder.
