Hint: it’s all about balance
In the quest to achieve optimum health and feel your absolute best, it’s important to understand how the concept of balance affects overall well-being. Achieving your optimal state of well-being involves a holistic approach, which encompasses not only physical health but also mental and emotional well-being in a balanced manner.
At Body Symmetry MD, we’re committed to helping you be and feel your best at any age. Let’s explore the ways we can help, covering essential aspects like exercise, nutrition, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (HRT), sleep, and more.
5 essential aspects of optimum health
Remember, it’s crucial to keep these aspects in balance with one another.
- Regular exercise. Regular exercise represents the cornerstone of physical well-being and feeling your best at any age. Physical activity helps you maintain a healthy weight, strengthens muscles, improves cardiovascular health, and enhances overall energy levels. At Body Symmetry MD, we help clients develop an exercise routine that fits each individual’s specific needs and goals.
- Proper nutrition. Proper nutrition is another vital element in the pursuit of living your best life. A well-balanced diet includes a variety of proteins from meat and other sources, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats. Avoid processed foods, sugars, triglycerides, and simple carbohydrates. These can lead to weight gain and negatively affect overall health. Staying hydrated is equally important, so drinking plenty of pure, cold water throughout the day will keep you on track. Remember, other drinks — even if they are sugar-free — do not count toward a healthy daily water intake.
- Prioritize sleep. Optimal physical and mental health will elude you if you don’t get a regular good night’s sleep. Adequate sleep helps your body recover and repair itself, enhances cognitive function, and stabilizes mood. Aim for 7 to 9 hours of quality sleep each night by establishing a consistent schedule, creating a comfortable dark sleep environment, and practicing relaxation techniques before bedtime. This means avoiding screen time for at least an hour before bedtime.
- Stress management. Everyone experiences times of stress. But, unchecked, stress can have a significantly negative impact on your overall well-being. At Body Symmetry MD, we can help you incorporate effective stress management techniques into your daily life to maintain balance. These techniques include deep breathing exercises, meditation, mindfulness, or simply finding time to engage in your favorite activities.
- Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (HRT). For some individuals, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a valuable component of finding that perfect balance and feeling your best. At Body Symmetry MD, we use HRT to address hormonal imbalances, which may occur due to age, medical conditions, and other factors. Starting a steady HRT program can help alleviate fatigue, mood swings, diminished sex drive, stubborn extra weight, inability to focus, and other negative symptoms. Finding out whether hormone imbalances are causing your bothersome symptoms is as easy as a simple blood test.
Feeling your best involves a multi-faceted, well-balanced approach, which addresses physical, mental, and emotional aspects of overall well-being. At Body Symmetry MD, we have the tools, knowledge, and scientific expertise to guide you as needed, so you can feel your best and achieve optimum health, regardless of age.
