Everything about this site has to do with your health and my health. I provide self-care health tips for things to do and use - to help our health. I want our society to get back on track with mental and physical health. My blog has become a way of life for me - and has worked well for me and my family,
This site provides information and ways to help you make better decisions about your health and more. I'll keep adding more health tips and product recommendations as thoughts and uses come up. My life has taught me a lot - my friends and family provide me with more experiences.
Remember that everyone is different - what affects one person's health may not affect another's. What someone accumulates in his or her system may affect him but not someone else. What may cause leukemia in some children may not cause it in others. I'm just trying to give people the best shot at keeping and getting healthy - because by and large, our country has more sickness, cancer, gut issues, brain and mental issues, and illnesses than ever before. Ever wonder about superfoods, "food is medicine" and such? Send us questions and we'll try to tell you more about our research on it. Email below.
In no way am I suggesting that what I do works for everyone - I am giving options to try, without being over the top. I believe in a holistic life, and it keeps me healthy and youthful. Everyone is different, and you should pick and choose pieces of what works for you. Don't rely on commercials, "health gurus" and such - they all get it wrong, so many times - often just to make a buck for them. I usually make sure to avoid something that has a commercial - they are spending money to push a product, where that money could go toward making the product better or more available.
By the way, my research is deep - not looking for my own spin but for truth. You can search the Internet for anything and find contradictory studies. Many times, you can see that a study is slanted or short term - to help the monetary bottom line of a company. These are usually not the best studies. Use common sense and think of how people used to be healthy and take care of themselves without Big Pharma. What has changed? The food sources, pollution, toxins, drugs, automation so we have less activity, and more. Think to better days and better ways - and realize what's wrong now. Self-care to avoid the bad stuff can help you be healthier.
These things that I've learned and implemented are what is working for me and my family. My research shows that I am not unjustified with what I do - but as with any self-care advice, cater it to meet your own needs. Don't take anything as an answer to be able to avoid doctor care. Many actions can help heal so that a doctor isn't needed, but if you are not improving, or in any distress - stop and see a doctor. Anyone can be allergic or sensitive to foods and medications. Anyone can become allergic to something at any point. Anyone can have toxic effects by ingesting too much of something daily - even water, or kale. There are alternatives to try.
The same issues are not as prevalent in other countries (of certain issues), so it's something going on here in the US. I'm looking at changes that have been happening in the more recent years, since the prevalence of these health and mental issues. I'm studying and paying attention. I have seen family and friends suffering with these issues. I haven't been affected, but I have been doing my best to avoid doing and eating what the public largely does. I believe people can make changes that will help turn their health issues around, if started before issues get very set in.
A Better Life began as a way to help people live more healthy lives - by example of what I've been doing and showing the results of my research in my health tips. You can eat healthy and still have great flavor in foods. You can find fun ways to be active, so it doesn't seem like a chore. You can do things to help your life and not let this day's issues catch up to you - like forms of cancer, or arthritis inhibiting you, or inflammation making you miserable, or feeling sick every day. If you change the ways that you do things, it's not hard to get in great shape and hopefully reverse conditions before they take hold of you. Self-help is a better route to health. You can also learn to live with "a new normal" - learn ways to cope. We also show how to streamline things you might normally do - plus faster, more efficient ways to do every day and occasional things.
