Eight New Year's Resolutions for a Healthier 2014 and Beyond

by Tony Isaacs

(The Best Years in Life) It's that time of year again when many of us resolve to make improvements in our lives and habits for the coming year. Often, such resolutions have to do with improving our health, such as losing excess weight or quitting smoking. Besides such obvious areas as weight loss and putting down cigarettes, there are a number of other resolutions many of us could make to improve our health. Here are eight resolutions which are almost certain to lead to a healthier 2014 and beyond: 

2. Resolve to Eat Healthier

Good health begins with good nutrition and nutrition comes primarily from what we eat. Food items on our grocer's shelves have often had most of the natural nutrition processed out and harmful additives such as MSG processed in. It is almost impossible to avoid GMO items, including soy, canola and corn. Processed and non-organic meat products are particularly harmful and so are unhealthy fats. Produce is often contaminated by pesticides. Insure better health by avoiding harmful items and replacing them with nutrient dense whole food items – and make sure to use 100% certified organic food items as much as possible.

2. Resolve to be More Physically Active

Regular exercise (or physical activity) has a world of health benefits, including making our bones, muscles and entire bodies stronger. Physical activity is essential for a strong natural immune system. Thanks to the beneficial hormones and pheromones produced when we exercise, it also makes us feel calmer and happier and is a wonderful way to relieve stress and tension.

3. Resolve to Get Plenty of Natural Sunshine

Too many people have been fooled into avoiding ample exposure to sunshine, thanks to mainstream misinformation. The abundant truth is that direct and indirect sunshine are essential for optimum health.  First of all, sunshine on the skin creates essential Vitamin D3, which is different than and superior to any supplemental forms of D3.  Vitamin D3, which is actually a steroid, wards off disease and illness and is essential for healthy bones.  Secondly, it has been determined that the body also utilizes indirect sunlight in the eyes for optimum health.  Quite simply, without sunshine there would be no life on earth and we all need plenty of it on a regular basis. Note: Get plenty, but don't overdo it.  When your skin first begins to turn pink, seek shade to avoid sunburn.

 

4. Resolve to Eliminate Toxins from Your Home and Body

Thanks to man’s unnatural chemicals and pollution, toxins are everywhere, including our food, air, water and soils. Though cannot avoid toxins entirely, we can eliminate many of them by getting rid of toxic household items such as cleansers, pesticides, herbicides, and cosmetics and replacing those items with natural ones. Most of the toxins we haven’t avoided can be safely and effectively eliminated by natural foods, herbs and other means. For example, see:

"Making your Home Safe in the 21st Century"

5. Resolve to Build a Strong Natural immune System

The immune system is our natural first line of defense against disease and illness. In addition to diet and exercise, make sure that you get optimum daily amounts of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Since today’s food products and mineral-depleted soils make it is next to impossible to get all the nutrients you need from diet alone, consider a good whole foods derived multi-vitamin product as well as a good “superfoods” powder.

6. Resolve to Avoid, Minimize and Eliminate Stress

You have surely heard the term "stress, the silent killer". It's true! Stress causes illness and prevents healing. Endeavor to do whatever it takes to remove stress from your life and make your mental attitude your ally. Meditate, exercise, take yoga, change jobs, find a pleasant hobby – do whatever you must to remove stress and have a positive mental outlook.

7. Resolve to Look First to Nature for Healing and Health Issues

As “The Father of Medicine”, Hippocrates said, “Nature is the physician of man”. Unnatural mainstream medicines often merely mask symptoms by forcing the body to function unnaturally and most have side effects which can lead to further other unhealthy conditions. Avoid getting trapped into managed-for-profits illness and ever increasing medications by looking first to natural healing, as mankind has done for millennia.

8. Resolve to Supplement Wisely to Insure You Get Optimum Daily Nutrition

While you should endeavor to eat as healthily as possible and get maximum nutrition from your diet, do not fall for the myth that a healthy diet alone will provide all the nutrition you need for optimal health.  Such an idea is a mainstream myth and the truth is that it is next to impossible to have a diet that provides even the measly minimum RDA amounts of a handful of vitamins and minerals, much less the optimum daily amounts of all the vitamins and minerals, trace minerals, and literally hundreds of other nutrients our bodies are designed to utilize.  Thus, do not try to use supplements to make up for a poor diet, but supplement a healthy diet - and when you supplement, use whole-food derived organic supplements as much as possible.  In addition to being woefully short of all the nutrients we need, most over the counter vitamin and mineral supplements use coal-tar derived petrochemical synthetic vitamins and crushed rocks minerals that have not been predigested by plants and animals.  Your body knows the difference.
