Separating true healthy living from all the ********. I made my new years resolution, and it was to get healthy. I've decided to put focus on it, and while I know I need to get to a doctor for blood tests and all of that (which I will be going to Mexico to do where it is actually affordable. Our healthcare system here makes me sick with all the greed and corruption.), I still have a lot of trouble with pinpointing what things really count as healthy living. I have read and heard all sorts of things about how to be healthy from doctors, scientists and magazine articles, only to find everyone contradicting everyone else. It's really very repugnant that so much ******** is flung about, and how every study ends up contradicting another one. That said, I'm looking for the things things that aren't just fun for doctors to pretend to know, scientists to manipulate data to get into articles, and writers to bring up because it sounds good. What are the near axioms of healthy living? I realize that a lot of these are questionable themselves, but these are some of the things I already do to try to be healthy: I take vitamins, I exercise, I drink a lot of tea, I don't eat candy or a lot of junk food, and I try to get enough sleep.
