Health Care Costs ? Can Your Diet Control Them?

One of the most talked about topics in any political and social circle is the rising costs of health care. Some say the health insurance companies are to blame, while others point the finger at medical malpractice lawsuits. We may or may not ever come up with the right answers to this query, and we might just be talking in circles.

Whether or not we can decide what the problem is with health care costs, there are some things that you can do to reduce the chance that you will have to rely on doctors and prescription drugs to get through your daily life. The costs of health care are not the only burden. Relying on prescription and non-prescription drugs is not a pleasant way to live.

Your diet and exercise routine will help to keep you healthy and add to the longevity of your body and mind. You don't have to jump into a gym membership or become a vegetarian just yet. Your lifestyle change takes time. Any major change in diet needs time for your body to adjust.

Common sense offers the best rules when it comes to a healthy body. Most of us know what is good for us, and what we should eliminate from our lifestyles. There are healthy alternatives to many of the ailments that we have a hard time staying away from.

Some simple tips are all you need to get into a healthier lifestyle:

  • Buy healthy foods. We are always in a hurried state, trying to get the most of our time. Unfortunately, out lack of time tends to send fast food and processed food onto our dinner plates.
  • Learn to cook. The more comfortable you are in the kitchen allows for a wider variety of foods. You'll eat better, and enjoy it much more. Community education offers great, inexpensive classes.
  • Exercise regularly. You don't have to hit the gym everyday, just go for a 30 minute walk in the mornings or evenings. It's relaxing too.
  • Sleep. Your body needs to recharge after a long day, and you can never catch up on lost sleep. Eight hours is just about right. Consistency is also a key ingredient to sleep.
  • Don't feel guilty. We all slip up once in a while. Just limit your impulses to small portions. One scoop of ice cream instead of two.

You'll soon notice that the common sense approach to lifestyle change will definitely make a difference in how you feel from day to day. Your health is the most important possession you have. Take care of your body, and you reduce the need for reliance on the health care system. Your body has the amazing power of healing itself; just give it the chance to do its job.
