An ounce of prevention can lead to a world of health
It’s about that time of year when almost everyone you come into contact with has “that thing that’s going around.” Carrying a can of antibacterial spray and wearing gloves won’t save you from possibly coming down with something, but small changes in your lifestyle may give you the upper hand during flu season. Take the advice of these good doctors, and you may not have to go see your local medical professionals for a while.
The Great Immune System
Your immune system is one of the greatest assets you have and you never thank it. In your life, your body will autonomously eradicate between 6-10 cancers without your realizing. It will fight your infections, repair micro traumas and police the entire population of billions of cells in your body without your asking.
All it requests in return is a little bit of health to preserve it. Stop smoking, lose weight. Maybe exercise a little. Don’t drink so much. Your diet is so much more important that you realize. (cousinbebop)
In the simplest of terms, smoking makes your arteries rigid, so as they progressively get filled with fat, instead of increasing their diameter they’ll just get stuffed until no more blood can get through and you’ll be done. If you’re lucky you’ll get some chest pains beforehand but that’s not always the case.
“Joke’s on you sucka! I got a heart attack and survived, death ain’t got nothing on me!”
Welcome to the world of chronic heart failure where from now on every day that goes by your heart will be less a pump and more a container, until you get out of breath from just speaking and eventually die. There’s no going back. Please stop smoking. (Valproic_acid)
A Slight Headache
The majority of headaches are caused by either a lack of sleep or a lack of water. Consider these two factors before making a needless appointment. (Hooded_0ne)
My grandmother always said, water will cure 90% of your issues. Headache, drink water. Body ache, drink water. Can’t sleep, drink some water. Have flu/cold, drink water. Broke my toe when I fell down her stairs, you betcha – drink some water. I drink a lot of water, can’t say it fixes all but at this point it comforts me because I think of her. (kemekokitten)
