Simple ways to Reverse Your Disease in 2019
2018 has come to an end. On one hand, it is time to celebrate the end of the year gone by and welcome what is in store in the New Year. On the other hand, some people experience a sense of nostalgia as they reflect on the events that took place in their lives in the past 12 months. Many people start thinking about New Year’s resolutions at this time of the year. But amidst everything, we tend to miss out on our health the most. At Reverse Factor (RF), we help people reverse diseases with the help of right food. When we look deeper in 2018, there are few things that were common among all people who have reversed their lifestyle diseases with RF in 2018. Given below are 5 things that they have done and are super easy to include in our lifestyle which can help you reverse your diseases in 2019.
Chronic diseases are major killers in the modern era. Physical inactivity is one of the important cause of most chronic diseases. Being active primarily prevents, or delays, chronic diseases, implying that chronic disease need not be an inevitable outcome during life. You burn fewer calories making you more likely to gain weight. You may lose muscle strength and endurance, because you are not using your muscles as much. Your bones may get weaker and lose some mineral content. Your metabolism may be affected, and your body may have more trouble breaking down fats and sugars. Your immune system may not work as well, and the list is endless. Being active is one thing that we have seen common in everyone who has reversed their diseases with RF. This year let’s try incorporating 30 mins of physical activity on a daily basis.
2. Plant Based Diet
The main advantage of a plant-based diet seem to be more related to lesser lifestyle diseases. At RF, when we base your meals on plant foods, we are packing your diet with fibre, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. Plant-based diets are also full of phytochemicals, compounds that help keep many of your body’s systems running smoothly. You can have your cheat meals once in a while but what is important is what you do on a day to day basis.
3. Quit smoking
There's no way around it. Smoking is bad for your health. Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body. Cigarette smoking causes 87 percent of lung cancer deaths. It is also responsible for many other cancers and health problems. These include lung disease, heart and blood vessel disease, stroke and cataracts. At RF, we observe that people suffering from lifestyle diseases recover and reverse their diseases much faster after they quit smoking.
4. Minimise stress
We all have some kind of stress in our lives. It can come from family, financial, personal, social and there many more attributes which can cause stress in an individual. But we all should deal with it as soon as possible or else it may harm our hormonal balance. In fact there was a recent study which highlighted that high and consistent stress levels are as bad as junk food. It can affect so many hormones in our body and cause imbalance.
5. Regular consumption of seeds
Seeds like pumpkin, sunflower, flax, chia seeds contain high levels of essential fatty acids, the full profile of amino acids needed to form complete and digestible protein, plus vitamins A, B, C and E and the minerals calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, selenium and manganese. Seeds are so nutrient-dense that you don't have to eat a lot of them. Alternatively, they make healthy snacks. At RF, another common thing that we observe is that people who have reversed their diseases have not stopped their consumption of seeds.
Hope we all can learn from people who have reversed their lifestyle diseases. And as we observe closely, we understand that none of them followed any diets, rather all of them followed healthy habits and healthy lifestyle.
