6 Natural ‘Doctors’ for Life

Most of us whenever we are sick, doctor is the way to go. Unless of course your main reason to visit the doctor is to catch a glimpse of the handsome or pretty doctor around the corner or just to get your medical certificate. Whatever reason it may be, instead of visiting the doctors and popping the pills when you are sick, why not give a frequent visit to the natural ‘doctors’ for PREVENTION’?

There are many ways to prevent yourself from getting sick. For the Natural ‘Doctors’ wise, here’s my suggested list:

sunshineair1. Sunshine

Ok. Probably many of you would avoid the sun like plague, especially for most Asian. Other than afraid of getting dark skin, many would be paranoid due to the bombardment of the message of how dangerous the sun is.

In actual fact, many cultures know how much the sun can heal our body naturally. It can help generate Vitamin D in the body, which is essential for our health, which also supports the immune system, protect against brain aging, strengthens teeth, eases mild depression, heals some skin disorder. Of cos there are many more to list it all.

And in case you are wondering, the best time to get some sunshine is before 10AM. So wake up early and soak in some Vitamin D!

2. Water

Consuming adequate amount of water everyday plays an important role in our overall good health. As you know our body contains 70% of water. Hence keeping it hydrated is so important. Moreover, water has many benefits! Just to name a few, water aids in digestion, weight-loss, prevents us from headache, keeping our kidney in good condition and it definitely improves our skin complexion! Why not grab a cup of water now while reading this?

3. Air

Virtually, almost all living organism require air to stay alive. Hence it is natural we put importance to the air quality we are breathing in. Even though many times it really depends geographically where we resides in, we can still put effort to ensure the air quality especially in our home is as clean as possible. Having a good ventilation at home, while keeping the house clean is of importance. Avoid smoking at home (if you are a smoker). You may invest in an air purifier for better air circulations as well. And do your best to stay away from second hand smoke as much as possible. For the weekend, get out as much as possible to spend it with nature to get some fresher air for your lungs.

4. Exercise

Everybody knows the important of staying fit through exercises. It has so much positive effect on our body. It helps improve the efficiency of our heart and lungs, increasing our metabolic rate, maintain our body flexibility, stronger muscle joint and muscle, and most of all, during exercises our brain will release a hormone called endorphins which makes us happier as a person.

My personal recommendation is to exercise at least 4-5 times a week about 30min – 1hour each time. This can change depends on your fitness level. In any case, moving is better than not moving. So get that body going and your body will be thankful for you in the long run!

5. Healthy Nutrition

With good balanced diet and nutrition intake, combining with physical activity, allows our body to function at its best. Balanced diet includes foods that are in rich in vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients with low in fats and sugar. Everyone may have a different diet intake depending on their body condition. The best way is to talk with your nutritionist for your best intake consumptions or following the general recommended daily intake to keep your health at its best.
