Caring for the Whole Body

Even if you are working hard towards being healthy, it can be a struggle. The systems and functions in your body are all so interconnected that even if you are doing most things right, you can still not feel your best. If your health is not where you want it to be, then you may just be missing a vital part of your overall health. 

Seeing the proper doctors and talking to them about your health concerns can help point you in the right direction when it comes to pinpointing where the health problems are coming from. You can also do an inventory of your body and see what areas you may have been neglecting and start making adjustments. 

Eyes, Teeth, and Hearing

Your oral health impacts the entirety of your body’s health in more ways than you can imagine. Bacteria left unchecked in the mouth can transfer to the bloodstream and infect the rest of the body. Not taking proper care of your teeth can have disastrous effects on your health. 

The health of your eyes is also important to your overall health. If you do not take care of your eyes, you can not only see adverse things happen in the rest of your body, but you run the risk of losing your sight. The loss of your sight can greatly diminish your independence and quality of life. 

Finding proper hearing care is also important to overall health. If you spend time around loud noises as a part of your job, then you run the risk of hearing loss. Talking to an audiologist about how to prevent hearing loss and treat it if it starts to happen is essential to your health. 

Digestive System

The health of your stomach and digestive system also greatly affects the rest of your body. How well your body processes food, retrieves the nutrients to go to the rest of your body, and eliminates waste is directly related to how healthy your body’s overall. 

Probiotic and fiber supplements can go a long way to help your digestive system stay on track. More important than that is monitoring what you take into your body. Giving your boy the proper nutrients it needs by having a diet that is heavily based on fruits and vegetables will help your digestive system. 

Adrenal System

Your adrenal system is the part of your body that monitors your hormone levels, and this includes the stress hormone that triggers fight or flight. If you do not take care to monitor the stress in your life and your response to it, then your adrenals can be working overtime. 

If your adrenals are constantly producing the stress hormone and working on getting your body balanced and safe, then it is not going to be able to produce the other hormones you need to stay balanced and healthy. Your adrenals can be triggered, even if the threat is only a perceived threat. A proper balance of a low-sugar diet, managing stress through exercises and breathing exercising, and supplements can help to nurture your adrenals.
