Three Foundational Health Habits


Three Foundational Health Habits   

There is much highlighted and continued debate over the best way to eat.  The debate over how much exercise you need, continues in parallel sequence.

Here are three things that you can do for and is agreed upon by many a health care professional:

1. Don’t get into sleep debt.

According to Harvard, a growing body of research suggests that there’s a link between how much people sleep and how much they weigh. In general, children and adults who get too little sleep tend to weigh more than those who get enough sleep.
Researchers from Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar, in Doha reported in a 2015 study that sleep deprivation can promote the onset, or exacerbate the progression, of type 2 diabetes.

2. Keep moving

Regularly opening your bowels every morning is an effective way to improve your health. NHS figures show that constipation affects one in every seven adults at any time, and can lead to haemorrhoids, diverticulitis, bleeding and discomfort. In 2012, scientists from the American College of Gastroenterology revealed an association between chronic constipation and an increased risk of developing colorectal cancer.

Poor diet is the most common cause of simple constipation. In cultures where people eat a wide variety of unprocessed foods, constipation is less common. The reason for this is the fact that unprocessed food contains more dietary fibre and resistant starch which are both essential ingredients for good bowel health.

3. Eat eggs

It was once thought that eating eggs could cause high cholesterol. However, after much research, the official advice is that eating up to one egg a day does not increase heart-disease risk in healthy individuals and can form part of a healthy diet. Eggs are a great source of protein, vitamins and minerals including folic acid.Scientists from Peking University First Hospital, Beijing, China, reported in 2015 that folic acid can reduce risk of stroke.
