5 easy ways to feel better every day

Little changes can make a big difference. Functional medicine expert DR. WILL COLE shares his simple rules to bettering your health

Beauty

Good health is the ultimate luxury, and functional medicine claims to provide a new approach – preventing disease rather than treating the illness. Which makes a lot of sense, because how we want our bodies to work in the future should determine how we act today. Ultimately, it’s about being fit, active and mindful in everyday life. So, rather than waiting until you’re ill to visit the doctor, it’s time to focus on attaining and maintaining good health. These are the simple changes you can make right now…

Get a better gut balance

Your gut is the foundation to your overall health. Keep the bad bacteria in your gut at bay by continually supplying it with good bacteria through a daily probiotic supplement and probiotic-rich fermented foods such as sauerkraut and kimchi.

Reduce stress

It can be a trigger for many different health problems such as gut dysfunction and autoimmune conditions and can severely aggravate symptoms. Introducing regular stress-reducing practices into your routine, such as meditation, yoga and walking in nature, will make a huge difference to your health.

Lower your sugar intake

We all know that sugar is bad for your health. However, too much fruit and natural sweetener can be just as bad when eaten in excess – they still impact your blood sugar even though they are natural. Sugar is still sugar to your body, so keep everything in moderation.

Get enough sleep

While it’s tempting to watch yet another episode of your favorite Netflix show, we have to stop making excuses for skimping on sleep, since this is your body’s time to repair itself. A lack of sleep can increase inflammation and enhance cravings for junk food.

Limit alcohol consumption

A few drinks may seem harmless, but they can very quickly raise inflammation levels in the body. Alcohol can be a contributing factor as to why some of my otherwise diligent patients aren’t seeing results. But once they cut out the multiple drinks, they notice a difference.
