When performed excessively, physical exercise can use a lot of nutrients and lead to nutritional deficiencies. This is especially true when your nutrition isn’t adapted to you personally.
Lack of physical activity increases almost all known pathologies. This is especially the case in cardiovascular pathologies, due to a lack of cardiac or vascular stimulations, drainage, breathing, and so on.
An imbalanced diet, whether in quality or quantity, can lead to nutritional deficiencies or excesses, cancer and cardiovascular risk increase, fatigue, loss of energy, depression, etc.
The majority of people are chronically in a mild dehydration state. And yet, hydration is one of the 3 most basic human needs. Lack of hydration decreases all of the body and neurological functions, increase infection risks, causes joint and back stiffness, decreases immune response, hearing and sight, muscular qualities, etc.
Kidneys and lungs are the only organs able, through their function, to decrease body acidic state to balance the acid-base ratio. Water is essential to optimal kidney function.
It expels CO2 carbon dioxide, brings O2 dioxygen, and, in collaboration with the kidneys, regulates the acid-base balance. Basically, it brings energy to all the body’s cells and enables body detoxification. However, almost every single patient that comes through my office doesn’t initially have optimal breathing.
Medication, nutrition, drugs, alcohol, smoking, intoxications, bacteria and viruses are the most common toxins. It’s obvious that we sometimes need medication, and it is equally obvious that they all have a toxicity power over your body. It’s thus important to evaluate the risk/benefit ratio of each medication intake with your medical doctor. All the other toxic chemicals are avoidable (easily or not) and they all stress the body and their effects can accumulate over time.
