The Single Best Thing You Can Do For Your Health (Video)

This morning, I came across a very well done video lecture by a doctor at my alma mater, University of Toronto. Dr. Mike Evans discusses a treatment that he believes is the single best thing his patients can do to help dramatically prevent many different diseases. This treatment is one which we have discussed in many of our posts and is absolutely essential for achieving and maintaining optimum health. What is this miraculous treatment?

This “sounds too good to be true” treatment is actually exercise. As you will see in the video below, there are so many different things with which regular exercise can help with, from lowering blood pressure and preventing heart disease to lowering the risk of diabetes and bone fractures. His video is titled “23 1/2 Hours”.

As you can see, exercise is probably one of the biggest positive changes you can make toward improving your health. We have discussed the merits of exercise in combating chronic inflammation, obesity, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, oxidative stress (from free radicals), and the topic of exercise will continue to come up as a beneficial force in health. It simply cannot be overstated just how important regular exercise is for your health.

While regular exercise is of enormous benefit to health, there is another topic which doesn’t seem to get mentioned enough -- sugar. We discussed, in our post on sugar, just how bad eating sugar is for a variety of areas of health, but that is only the tip of the iceberg. Our next few posts will illustrate just how far the damage sugar does to your body goes, and why there are a growing number of people in the medical community who call sugar a “poison”. The combination of regular exercise and eliminating sugar from your diet is far and away the biggest positive change you can make to your health throughout your life.

So, make the effort to get moving for even 30 minutes a day... it could quite literally save your life.
