Dr Nathalie Fiset, a family doctor and certified
Hypnotherapist, is happily spreading good news.
Many medical studies have proven beyond a doubt
that it's never too late to take a step towards
good health. For example, the U.S. Surgeon General
states that only twenty minutes after smoking
cessation, your blood pressure and your pulse slow.
Twenty-four hours after smoking cessation, your
risk of heart attacks drops! After two to three
weeks of being a non-smoker, your blood circulation
and your respiratory functions increase by as much
as 30%. After twelve months of freeing yourself
from cigarettes, your risk of heart disease is half
those of a smoker. Take a moment to think about
It gets even better! According to the Canadian
Cancer Society, at least 50% of cancers would be
avoidable by adopting healthy lifestyles (including
healthy eating habits, of course). If an overweight
person diminishes her body weight by as little as 5
to 10%, she will start experiencing better control
over diseases such as heart problems, diabetes,
hypertension, etc. This means YOU have control over
the life you live.
In order to get closer to your ideal weight, the
equation is very simple: you either have to lower
your calorie consumption or increase your caloric
spending. The best for you would be to do both of
course. After checking with your physician, start
your new life today. It is recommended that you eat
five to ten portions of fruits and vegetables per
day and exercise for thirty minutes per day most
days of the week. Remember that any fantastic
journey starts with a first step. Take it
You have to be patient and realize you have
accumulated this excess weight over time. A healthy
rate would be if your weight drops by two or three
pounds per week. For people who would be
discouraged by this number, remember this can
add-up to over one hundred pounds in one year!
Healthy choices start at the supermarket. Be
conscious of what you put in your cart. After all,
if you don't keep tempting unhealthy foods in your
house, you will not eat them.
Experts agree on the fact that you can take your
health into your own hands and make a difference.
Thus, according to the Mayo Clinic, the top health
threats for men are mostly preventable.
Dr Fiset warns people who would be tempted to
seek fast chemical solutions to their health
problems - a pill is not always a solution. She
invites you to visit the Canadian Adverse Drug
Reaction Monitoring Program (CADRMP) Online Query
and Data Extracts. Here, you will find an on-line
database providing the public information
concerning suspected adverse reactions occurring in
Canada with respect to marketed health products, as
reported to Health Canada. A total of approximately
170,000 records dating back to 1965 are available.
Do not get impressed yet however, as Health Canada
states that only about 10% of all adverse effects
