Everyone gets sick from time to time; that is the human condition.
Besides having a genetic predisposition for certain health concerns and diseases, there are several major reasons why we get sick.
Poor Nutrition and unhealthy food: can often lead to illness
Poor nutrition, a diet that is deficient in certain nutrients, can cause a host of diseases such as coronary thrombosis—low blood lecithin.
• If there is a mild deficiency in B12, a person can have shortness of breath, migraines, eye twitching and facial pain.
• If there is an extreme deficiency in B12, a person can be sluggish in their mental state, go into a coma and die. On the other hand, if you have too much vitamin C, phlebitis can be cured.
• In addition, when a person consumes moderate amounts of berries, fruits and vegetables, free radicals can be killed off before they damage cells that lead to cancer and heart diseases.
• Eating junk food can make you more susceptible to disease and deficiencies.
However, by eating balanced meals, your organs are nourished and your immune systems work more effectively and disease can be prevented.
Stress can lead to a host of health problems
Stress is a part of everyone’s life from time to time; however, when it is consistent, it can harm your body. Keep in mind; your body will repair itself and prevent disease when it is adequately nourished. However, when there is continual stress and nutrition is poor, the body looks for more nutrients. But when it finds little nutrients, it becomes susceptible to infections, heart disease, ulcers, colitis, diabetes and other diseases.
Poor sleep and little rest: a recipe for disaster
Poor sleep can cause a host of problems such as depression, low energy, weight gain, as well as accidents and lack of attention. In addition, not getting enough sleep prevents the body from removing toxins from tired tissues and muscles. Most importantly, constantly losing sleep can lead to a heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, psychiatric and mood disorders and attention deficit disorder, (ADD).
Exercise and lack of water
Some may not know it; but a lack of exercise can cause high blood pressure, heart disease and osteoporosis. However, by regularly exercising, you can prevent these health concerns and also maintain a healthy weight, reduce anxiety and depression and promote a feeling of well-being.
• Exercise also gets rid of toxins and waste products and gets rid of infectious bacteria.
• In addition, exercise also gets rid of infectious bacteria and viruses.
• Lack of water can cause a variety of health problems such as arthritic pain, migraines, angina, high blood pressure, adult diabetes and constipation.
Personal Hygiene and bad choices
Cleanliness is an effective way to keep the germs away. By washing your hands and bathing regularly, microbes can be eliminated; microbes that infect our bodies. Bad choices such as using drugs and smoking can also harm our health; however, by eliminating them from our lives, we can enjoy better overall health.
To conclude, everyone gets sick now and then; however, there are actions we can take that may prevent illness such as consuming a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, lessening stress and getting good sleep. Find out more about how and why we get sick by talking with your physician.
