Top Health Tips For Different Parts Of Your Body

The human body is truly amazing. Our understanding of the inner workings of organs is superb, but doctors and medical professionals are always learning new things that are of the utmost importance. If something goes wrong inside our bodies, it can have drastic consequences, which is why so much time, effort and money has been put into making sure we keep ourselves as healthy as possible.

Here are the top health tips you should follow, to ensure your vital organs stay healthy.

The Brain

Our brains may only make up 2% of our body weight, but it is definitely running the show. It uses 20% of all oxygen & energy your body takes in , but it puts it to good use as it is responsible for all functions, including thinking, breathing, digesting & learning. So it is vitally important that we keep our brain healthy, and here is how we can do that:

  •   Challenge yourself with brain games and stimulating puzzles.
  •   Keep your thoughts happy & think positive.
  •   Stay socially engaged.
  •   Eat fish once a week.
  •   Get physically active.
The Heart

'You only get one heart, so it's important to make it last'. The heart is the muscle that pumps blood and delivers oxygen and nourishment to every part of the body. When something goes wrong with this organ, more often that not there are fatal consequences. A healthy heart is key to our survival and here's how to improve our chances:

  •   Exercise at least five times a week, for at least 30 minutes.
  •   Eat lots of fruit & vegetables.
  •   Stick to a balanced diet, to prevent becoming overweight.
  •   Reduce salt & fat intake.
  •   Eat more fish.
The Liver

It's probably not something you think about much, but your liver is a key part of your body's digestive system. Everything you consume, whether it be food, drink or medicine has to pass through your liver. So you need to treat the organ right to make sure it remains healthy and does its job – here is how:

  •   Moderate your alcohol intake.
  •   Eat more fibre.
  •   Be careful with weight loss pills.
  •   Maintain regular exercise.
  •   Cut down on fatty foods.
The Lungs

Everyone knows how important their lungs are, but the facts really are staggering. Your lungs pump roughly 10,000 litres of air in and out of your body every day, with the help of 200 million intricate air sacs. For a healthy pair of lungs it really is simple – maintain regular exercise and don't smoke, but here are a couple more tips to keep your lungs in shape.

  •   Don't smoke (or give up now!).
  •   Exercise more.
  •   Improve indoor air quality.
  •   Eat a healthy diet (vegetables & fish).
  •   Perform lung cleansing exercises.
The Stomach

Maintaining a healthy digestive system could mean the difference between a healthy life and one filled with chronic illness. The digestive organs break down food and decide if it should be put to work in your body or removed as waste. One particular food type that is key to this process is fibre, which feeds good bacteria. You should make sure you follow these tips for a healthy stomach:

  •   Eat a high-fibre diet.
  •   Stay hydrated (plenty of water).
  •   Exercise regularly.
  •   Manage stress levels.
  •   Eat on a schedule.
The Kidneys

The kidneys really are incredibly versatile, they're always doing more than one job. The kidneys cover all aspects of health inside your body, from helping to strengthen bones to the regulation and production of red blood cells. Kidneys keep your body at the perfect balance in terms of fluid and chemicals, so it's very important that you take care of them and here is exactly how to do that:

  •   Reduce your intake of salt - eat right.
  •   Drink lots of water every day.
  •   Avoid self medication.
  •   Don't resist the urge to urinate.
  •   Avoid excessive amounts of alcohol.
The Eyes

Our eye sight is something we all take for granted. While we always image we will be able to see, sometimes disaster strikes. So in order to prevent your eye sight deteriorating with age or over a shorter period of time, looking after your eyes is a daily task that should be carried out. Here are a few tips:

  •   See your eye doctor regularly.
  •   Protect your eyes from dry air and UV rays.
  •   Follow the 20-20-20 rule when working with computers.
  •   Maintain a healthy diet (including carrots, broccoli &).
  •   Say no to smoking.
The Skin

Some people are still surprised by this fact, but the skin is actually the largest organ of your body. Our skin protects our insides from harmful UV rays and dry air, but sometimes it needs a bit of help from ourselves. Maintaining healthy and clear skin can be a great confidence boost but is also essential for a continuous healthy life, and here's how to retain that radiant glow:

  •   Drink lots of water to keep hydrated.
  •   Protect yourself from the sun.
  •   Don't smoke (it causes wrinkles).
  •   Treat your skin gently (daily cleansing and moisturising).
  •   Eat a balanced & healthy diet.

As well as natural elements like exercise, a healthy diet and stress management, supplements are also great for staying healthy and keeping your body fit. There are a number of food supplements out there, to help you look after yourself and the content of each capsule or spoon full is vital to how effective it will be. Some of the most effective supplements include VitaDSO, which contains S.O.D, to help promote healthy joints & heart. Another is Lyc-O-Mato which contains Lycopene, which promotes a healthy heart.

If you follow the above tips you should live a long and healthy life. However, if you ignore the advice, you may find yourself in hospital under the care of men & women in medical scrubs & medical uniforms providing you with medical supplies – look after your body, you only get one.
