Maintaining good health doesn't happen by accident.

Maintaining excellent health isn't something that happens by chance. It takes hard effort, a healthy lifestyle, and the occasional checkup and test.

Fibre, whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, "good" or unsaturated fats, and omega-3 fatty acids are all important components of a balanced diet. Inflammation, which may harm tissue, joints, artery walls, and organs, is reduced by these dietary components. Another aspect of healthy eating is limiting processed foods. Sugar-sweetened drinks, sweets, and meals produced with highly refined grains can trigger blood sugar surges, which can contribute to early hunger. Diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and even dementia are all connected to high blood sugar levels.

Physical activity is also important for maintaining excellent health. It can significantly lower your chances of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, breast and colon cancer, depression, and falling. Sleep, endurance, and even sex are all improved by physical activity.

Finally, form a strong bond with your primary care provider. A physician you know — and who knows you — is in the ideal position to aid you if something goes wrong with your health. He or she may also suggest testing to screen for cancer or other diseases that aren't readily apparent.
