If you are familiar with Naturopathic care, you might be well aware of these foundations and all too accustomed to being asked what your water intake is, how much time you spend exercising, and what you ate in the last 24 hours. There’s a reason we like to focus on these aspects of your lifestyle. They are instrumental in establishing health and preventing disease. Without these foundations in place, it can be very difficult to near impossible to reduce or cure disease.
An imbalance in these foundations can often be found at the root of disease. While it is impossible to say with certainty that failing to establish these foundations can result in disease, we do find that working towards improving these foundations of health will often result in overall improvement of your well-being. Establishing a healthy foundation is one of the most important things you can do to improve your health today. While this may sound daunting, the great thing about these foundations is a little goes a long way. Making a conscious effort to incorporate small changes in your life daily can result in tremendous gains.
We will be exploring these foundations of health in more detail over the coming weeks. We hope to inspire you to make healthier choices in your life so that you can achieve your optimal health!
