Being healthy can be a lot of work, right? There is so much to remember, and it might seem overwhelming sometimes.

That is especially if you have a few underlying health conditions making life harder and more stressful to manage.

In addition to your normal chiropractic routine, consider these 10 issues for a more well-rounded healthcare plan.

The 10 Most Common Health Problems Are:

  • Inactivity and poor nutrition
  • Obesity and excess weight
  • Use of Tobacco Abuse of substances (drugs, alcohol)
  • HIV/AIDS infections
  • Mental health (depression, anxiety, and more)
  • Violence and general injuries
  • Poor environmental conditions (water, air, or land pollution)
  • Lack of immunizations against diseases and viruses
  • Inability to access or afford healthcare

The good news:

You can prevent or greatly reduce the main issues above by choosing healthy foods more often, being more active, avoiding tobacco use, choosing not to abuse drugs and alcohol, and being mindful of your choices. Practice safe sex, get mental health screenings, avoid injuries and violence if possible, filter your air and water if possible, get immunizations, and find out how you can get free or cheap healthcare for you and your family.

According to the University of Rochester Medical Center:

“Staying physically active can help prevent or delay certain diseases, including some cancers, heart disease and diabetes, and also relieve depression and improve mood.”

and,

“Being overweight or obese increases your chances of dying from hypertension, type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, respiratory problems, dyslipidemia and endometrial, breast, prostate, and colon cancers.”

If you can just try to eat right, exercise, and stay at a healthy weight, you can avoid a plethora of health problems. Stay healthy, be happy!
