This article was written by a Naturopathic Doctor at Oak Integrative. 

At the point when patients have a health concern or objective, they can go to their Naturopathic Doctor for help. Generally, a patient should make lifestyle changes to see a change in their health concern and accomplish their health objectives. But, small changes can lead to big results! Here are some lifestyle modifications you can apply now, little by little, so you can start taking steps towards a healthier you!

1. Progress to 30 minutes of physical exercise every single day

This doesn’t mean you have to hit the gym for a high-intensity session! How about getting outside for a brisk walk? Don’t have 30 minutes? How about 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening? 

There are countless choices with regards to getting active, particularly here on the lower mainland! Furthermore, there are so many medical advantages: better quality rest, further developed glucose control, entire body detoxification, weight maintenance or weight support, prevalent cardiovascular health, increased libido, improved focus, and so forth. Need we say more?

2. Consume a whole foods diet

This change can have the greatest effect from a health point of view. There are endless advantages to consuming a healthy diet, so how would you make the change? We recommend, slowly but surely. Consistently try to incorporate a new, whole food version of what you are already eating. For instance, as opposed to consuming a pre-bundled, sugar loaded café, have a go at filling in for an apple with blended nuts. When you become OK with the change and feel it has turned into a propensity, try subbing something different!

Think about the 80/20 rule: 80% of the time, eat whole food sources that cause you to feel great; the other 20%, allow yourself flexibility and time to enjoy.

3. Take time to slow down

Indeed, we are discussing meditation – it’s a developing trend for good reason! Meditation can assist with creating happiness, importance throughout everyday life, and an increased ability to focus all while lessening feelings of anger, anxiety, sadness and exhaustion. You will likewise rest better and laugh easier.

4. Consider probiotics

You and your naturopathic doctor can have a discussion about the utilization of probiotics, yet on the off chance that you’ve been eating alot of the Standard American eating routine (coined the SAD diet) then, you will probably benefit from probiotics. Probiotics help boost the immune system, improve digestion, benefit skin conditions, and prevent and treat conditions of dysbiosis (urinary tract infections, bacterial vaginitis, mental illness, antibiotic-associated diarrhea, etc.).

5. Spend time with friends and family

Experts from Harvard concur that this is one of the best sources of joy in our lives. Those that have experienced the longest put significant emphasis on social engagement and connection. Considering how you can make connections? Take a stab at sharing uplifting news, and answer eagerly when others share uplifting news with you! Offering thanks is always an incredible way to create a stronger bond.

We’ve only just briefly discussed a few lifestyle changes; talk to your naturopathic doctor for more detailed information. They can assist you with making a personalized plan, searching for possible challenges, and coming up with how progress will be made. Keep in mind: you have one life, so live it to the fullest.
