Four inexpensive ways to stay healthy

Cutting corners in health and wellness might seem financially responsible in the short term, but the long-term effects of ignoring symptoms and preventive care could lead to more numerous, or more serious, health problems in the future.

With that in mind, here are four cost-effective ways to save money while keeping yourself healthy at the same time:

  1. Try yoga or meditation instead of drugs: Fortunately, yoga and meditation are relatively inexpensive health care modalities that can be practiced in the comfort of your home. Instructional DVDs, magazines and alternative practitioners can provide yoga training, and meditation techniques are available through several multimedia platforms.
  2. Use dietary supplements, and avoid side effects later in life: Before you reach for those antacids or acid blockers, keep in mind that acid-reducing medications have been shown to block absorption of key nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin B12. Digestive enzyme supplements, on the other hand, can help relieve symptoms of indigestion and acid reflux without troubling side effects. Also, it’s a good idea to avoid nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs whenever possible, as many have been linked to serious side effects, such as gastrointestinal bleeding and cardiovascular complications. Systemic enzymes offer safe, effective support for the natural inflammatory process.
  3. Try acupuncture or massage, and ditch the painkillers: Acupuncture has gained attention lately for its proven health benefits. Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine use the technique to aid in pain relief, prevent anxiety and improve overall well being. Massage, another relatively inexpensive therapy, also is used for pain relief and stress reduction.
  4. Enjoy a walk: A report from USA Today reveals that a simple walking regimen can lead to significant weight loss. In fact, men and women who added 3,500 steps per day for a year were able to shed 8½ pounds and 5 pounds, respectively.

    Yoga is a way of life, a conscious act, not a set or series of learning principles. The dexterity, grace, and poise you cultivate, as a matter of course, is the natural outcome of regular practice. You require no major effort. In fact trying hard will turn your practices into a humdrum, painful, even injurious routine and will eventually slow down your progress. Subsequently, and interestingly, the therapeutic effect of Yoga is the direct result of involving the mind totally in inspiring (breathing) the body to awaken. Yoga is probably the only form of physical activity that massages each and every one of the body’s glands and organs. This includes the prostate, a gland that seldom, if ever, gets externally stimulated in one’s whole life.
