Essentials of Healthy Living

Good Health in the New Year

If you are like most people, a promise to get healthy in the New Year is on the top of your list of resolutions. However, sticking to those resolutions can be quite challenging.

Rest assured, a recent study supports that even small changes can make a big difference. The British study found that people with four health lifestyle behaviors — not smoking, physical activity, moderate alchohol consumption, and eating five servings of fruit or vegetables a day — live an average of 14 years longer.

Here are some tips to help ensure your success in the coming year:

  • Enlist support of friends and family
  • Set reasonable goals
  • Start slow and be consistent — it takes      about 21 days to create a new habit
  • Track your progress
  • Reward yourself

Village Green Apothecary offers 30 and 60 minute healthy living consultations with a Naturopathic Doctor, Herbalist, or Nutritionist to help you with your health goals. Make an appointment today to make 2008 your year of good health.

Start Fresh with a Beneficial Health Cleanse

Holidays can be filled with overindulgence and stress. Toxins can accumulate in your body, weaken your immune system and lead to a host of health problems. What better way to start the New Year than with a whole body cleanse.

Cleanses help remove toxins from the body and strengthen organ systems, thus promoting overall good health. Today more than ever we are subjected to numerous toxins in our food, home, and work environments. By helping the body to eliminate toxins, you will increase energy, support your immune system, and reduce the stress on your body.
