Wellness starts inside your body, from above-down, inside-out.
Meaning, information from your brain travels through impulses
in the nerves down to the body. These nerves travel from your
spinal cord inside your body to all your tissues out the
periphery.Your body is a finely-tuned machine, which has a few
basic needs to run smoothly. Your body also has an innate
intelligence which allows it to continue to function even if you're
doing your best to run it into the ground. Like any machine, the
better you treat your body, the better it will function for you,
and the longer it will last. While there are many factors in your
life which you can't control to relieve stresses on your body,
there are definitely some things that you can to allow your body
to function optimally.
The most direct ways to keep your body in optimal shape are the
Although there are many conflicting sources of information on
the correct things to eat, nutrition doesn't have to be such a
difficult process. With proper planning, anyone can clean up
their diet on their own enough to avoid excess or empty calories.

decisions. Simply avoiding fast food, fried foods, sugary or

help you manage this.

people. As long as you can maintain a regular exercise regimen
which increases your heart-rate and challenges your stamina, you
will find yourself improving physically the longer you stick with
it. Everybody is built differently and the key is to find an activity
you enjoy doing regularly and can feel a sense of
accomplishment with. You should consult your doctor before
starting a program and seek out the advice of a trainer to assist.
As with any machine, regular maintenance should be scheduled

self-healing, pain is often the very last symptom to be felt when
something has gone wrong. You can keep pushing yourself on a
day-to-day basis never realizing you're not performing as well
until you get to the point where your body tells you to stop. This
can be minimized and even prevented with regular checkups to
make sure everything is working well. You take your car to get
checked up regularly, you have your teeth checked regularly.
Why would you treat your spine, the core of your body through
which your nervous system travels, any worse than that.
