Our aging population has grown as new technology and advances in the medical field have increased people's lifespan. It isn't enough to just live longer. We should all want to live well.
One study showed that roughly 80% of Americans suffer from at least one chronic disease, and 68% have two or more. Those are horrible statistics!!!
So, are there things that we can do now, so we can look forward to productive years to enjoy family and friends without taking a hand full of pills ever day?
Absolutely!!! Let's start with 7 things that you can implement right away that will boost your health, add vitality to your life, and maybe get you off some of your medications.
1. Be social.It sounds simple enough, but loneliness is deadly. People need each other. Having social interaction gives you a reason to get up in the morning and go through your day.

There's a lot of buzz in the natural health industry about doing a detox.

You get to choose high quality oils such as extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, grass-fed butter, or ghee (clarified butter).

We hear that expression a lot, and it sounds innocent enough. But, aside from murder, the definition of killing is eliminating or depriving. Considering how valuable time is, killing time is the last thing we want to do.
