AMI Clinic Bedford #LifestyleResolution 10: Eliminate Toxins



The number of toxic chemicals and their sources is so large, addressing them all could easily require an entire library, but we believe you can help you keep your toxic load as low as possible by becoming an informed and vigilant consumer. 

This includes tossing out your toxic household cleaners, soaps, personal hygiene products, air fresheners, bug sprays, lawn pesticides, and insecticides, just to name a few, and replacing them with non-toxic alternatives.

AMI Clinic Bedford #LifestyleResolution 9: Take Control of Your Nutrition by Growing Your Own Food




Growing your own food has many rewards, from providing you with fresher, uncontaminated produce and cutting your grocery bill, to increasing your sense of wellbeing. 

Organic Vs. Non Organic 

Two years ago, a meta-analysis by Stanford University found that organic foods are less contaminated with agricultural chemicals

A new analysis confirms that while conventional and organic vegetables oftentimes offer similar levels of many nutrients, organic foods have fewer pesticide residues!

Organic produce also have on average 48% lower levels of cadmium, a toxic metal and a known carcinogen

One key nutritional difference between conventional and organics is their antioxidant content.

Organic fruits and vegetables can contain anywhere from 18-69%more antioxidants than conventionally-grown varieties

Sprouts are actually among the most nutrient-dense foods out there. Topping the list are sunflower seed and pea sprouts, which are typically about 30 times more nutritious than organic vegetables. 

Get Started...Spring will be approaching soon!

AMI Clinic Bedford #LifestyleResolution 8: Tend to Your Gut


Its crystal clear that beneficial bacteria plays an enormous role in your physical and mental health. 


Mounting research shows that the type and quantity of organisms in your gut interact with your body in ways that can either prevent or encourage the development of many diseases, including heart disease and diabetes.

Since virtually all of us are exposed to factors that destroy beneficial bacteria in your gut, such as antibiotics, chlorinated water, antibacterial soap, agricultural chemicals, and pollution.

So to ensure your gut bacteria remain balanced you should consider avoiding processed, refined foods in your diet. Eat traditionally fermented, unpasteurized foods and take a high-quality probiotic supplement.

AMI Clinic Bedford #LifestyleResolution 7: Optimize Your Vitamin D Levels

A robust and growing body of research clearly shows that vitamin D is absolutely critical for your health.


This isn’t so surprising when you consider that vitamin D, which your body produces in response to UVB rays striking your bare skin, affects your DNA. 
You have vitamin D receptors throughout your body, which in turn bind to specific locations of your genome. 
Scientists have identified nearly 3,000 genes that are influenced by your vitamin D levels, which explains its impact on such a wide variety of health conditions, including:

Type 1 and 2 diabetes
Bacterial and viral infections
Cardiovascular disease
Cancer
Etc.

Keep Topped Up!

AMI Clinic Bedford #LifestyleResolution 6: Fine-Tune Your Wake/Sleep Cycle



Sleep is another often ignored lifestyle factor that has a tremendous impact on your health—physically, mentally, and emotionally. The other side of sleep is related to light. It’s actually crucial to get enough light during daytime hours in order to sleep well. 

Light actually serves as the major synchronizer of something called your master clock. This master clock is a group of cells in your brain called the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN). As a group, these nuclei synchronize to the light-dark cycle of your environment when light enters the eye. You also have other biological clocks throughout your body, and those clocks subsequently synchronize to your master clock.

Night Night!

AMI Clinic Bedford #LifestyleResolution 5: Prioritize Your Emotional Health





The connections between stress and physical health are being explored at greater frequency these days. 

For example, research has established links between emotional distress and physical pain and chronic inflammation. 

Because inflammation plays a role in most diseases, including cardiovascular disease, asthma, and autoimmune disorders, this model suggests why stress impacts them as well. 

Happy people are also known to live longer—by 35 percent, according to one study. Another study found that happiness and contentment increases health and longevity. 

Keep Stress Free people or channel your mood and emotions in a positive way!

AMI Clinic Bedford #Lifestyle Resolution 4: Move Your Body as Much as Possible Throughout Each Day









Exercise affects your entire body—from head to toe—in beneficial ways. This includes changes in your muscles, lungs, heart, joints, bones, and brain. 

In fact, researchers recently suggested that exercise is "the best preventive drug" for many common ailments, from psychiatric disorders to heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. 

Compelling evidence actually suggests that even if you exercise regularly, prolonged sitting is itself a risk factor for chronic disease.

So, please, don’t get discouraged because your resolution to join the gym has already petered out. Instead, perhaps you may be better off focusing your attention on simple everyday movements instead. The key is to frequently move your body, throughout the entire day. Simply standing up from a seated position has been found particularly effective at counteracting the ill effects of sitting. 

Other simple everyday activities such as housecleaning, cooking, gardening, doing laundry, and reaching for an item on a high shelf, also fall within the spectrum of movements you would ideally engage in—more or less continuously—from morning until night. 

You can encourage more movement in your work day simply by moving items you use frequently so that they’re NOT within immediate reach.


So keep moving people!
