Walk Your Way to Good Health

Walking is an excellent way to improve the elasticity of your blood vessels and reduce the odds of suffering an aneurysm or rupture. Start out with short-distance walking, and in time, increase your route to one mile, three times per week. If you experience more than a little pain from using these new muscles, be sure to visit your chiropractor.

Stretch to Remain Upright

Performing stretching exercises can prevent your muscles and ligaments from shortening and stooping as you at a later age. Being careful not to over-extend your muscles, you can stretch them by sitting on the floor with your legs in front of you and extending one leg at a time to the side and rear. You can also sit cross-legged and simply lean forward slowly, stretching both your lower back and groin muscles.

Eat and Drink to Great Health

Make sure to maintain a balanced diet. If you choose to take additional vitamins, take them with your meals and a glass of water. Drinking plenty of water daily will keep your kidneys strong and working to remove harmful toxins while replacing fluid loss.
