Is There Anything More Important Than Your Health?

You can have a fat 401 (k), loads of equity in your home, and substantial savings but if you don’t have your health, what good is that? Good health is priceless, and it is possible to live a long, healthy life, but many people take a reactive approach to health in the form of medication and surgical procedures, neither of which promotes well-being.

Are You Facing D-Day?

Did you know that 30 to 50 percent of the time, the first symptom of a heart attack is fatal? Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States. Even if you survive a heart attack, your life will forever be changed.

So how long do you want to live?

Palm Beach Gardens chiropractor and functional medicine specialist Dr. Cima often asks this question, and some say, “I don’t want to live too long.” Yet, he finds that most people who are dying will do anything and everything to survive, often resorting to extreme measures like chemotherapy and radiation to survive.

So how long do you truly want to live, and how do you want your children and parents to live? After all, you have your family and/or other relationships that you truly care about. Do you know how that impacts your overall health and everyone else’s lives when someone else is sick in your family?

Over the years, Dr. Cima has watched people and seen that when they lose their health, they will do everything possible to regain it. But, according to him, chances are it’s not coming back.

Rethinking Retirement and Life Beyond 65

Whether you are rapidly approaching retirement age or are still decades out, it’s important to consider what that looks like. Dr. Cima asks people: Would you rather retire in a casket at 65 or on a yacht, enjoying 30, 40, or 50 quality-not junk- years to enjoy yourself, your life, your family, and everything else you have on this planet?

Moving Beyond Feeling and Appearance

Many people rely on how they feel or look as health indicators. And they take medications for things like diabetes and heart disease and think they’re fine and that the medications are healing them. “Taking drugs and thinking you’re healthy is like going to a bank and taking out a loan and thinking that you’re wealthy. Nothing could be further from the truth,” said Dr. Cima.

If you look good, you think you’re fine; if you don’t, you think you’re not. Don’t like how you look? Boost your nutrition by getting yourself on a healthy, sustainable diet-versus a fad one that doesn’t work- and adopt a great exercise program that’s geared toward making you healthy.

Take Control of Your Health

Over the years, Dr. Cima has seen people get fatter and sicker, but that doesn’t have to be your story. You can achieve and maintain great health by taking proactive measures.

One of the ways to do just that is by booking an appointment with Dr. Cima today for functional nutrition!
