For Tim and I, staying healthy is important. I'm fairly lazy when it comes to exercise, but am trying to be better. One issue for me is having some degeneration in my lower spine.
We've recently bought a rebounder and I am giving that a try as a way to not have a big impact on my joints but still get my heart rate up.
The only health issues we deal with are hereditary ones, and we are on a few meds and trying to eat well.
Many people are very frightened by the coronavirus (there are many who must be careful because of underlying issues they could become very ill if they caught it), but if you are a healthy person, regardless of your age, if you catch it you will be sick but recover well.
A key to being able to not be afraid is to make sure that your immune system is strong. Build your gut health with probiotics, get vitamin D, eat well, and I would also add get rid of as many toxins in your home as you can.
I've been making my own cleaners for years. I never panicked at the clorox wipes being unavailable, because I was able to make my own cleaning spray. I use water, isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol, and some essential oils.
Recently I tried a sample of thieves cleaner and I really like it. It has no toxins, is plant based and cleans really well. It smells good, too!
We try to avoid sugar, and white flour, white bread, and white rice. We don't worry about it if we eat it, but we try to use a healthy sweetener, I use sprouted flours, and brown rice. we have chickens for eggs. Every little bit helps.
I know that sometimes we get diseases that we have no control over - cancer, autoimmune diseases, and more. In these cases we have to look to the Lord for direction for treatments and make the best choices we can. Eating well, staying away from toxins, building our immune systems will help our bodies to fight, but ultimately our lives are in God's hands.
What are some things you do to keep healthy? Do you find it harder, as you age, to keep healthy? I'm really interested in these issues and would love to hear from you.
