But the solution is relatively simple. ‘‘To improve your digestive function, reduce inflammatory and acidic food choices, such as soft drinks, caffeine, alcohol and processed foods,’’ she says, ‘‘and increase nutritionally dense, alkaline foods, such as nuts, seeds, vegetables, sprouts, herbal teas and water.’’ Heed the apple adage An apple a day really is good for you. A study by the CSIRO found apples help with a range of problems, including high cholesterol, diabetes, allergies and obesity. ‘‘Importantly, many of these benefits could be achieved through the regular consumption of one to three apples a day,’’ associate professor Manny Noakes says in The 2010 Apple Report. Curb the coffee A moderate amount of caffeine won’t hurt your health, Hourigan says. ‘‘But more than four cups a day will raise anxiety levels, heart rate and blood pressure,’’ she says. Tone your core ‘‘A body without core strength is like a house without a foundation,’’ personal trainer Mike Jarosky says. ‘‘Core strength gives us stability, better posture and a healthier body,’’ he says. ‘‘Work planks into your daily exercise routine. A plank is when you lay face down, get up on your elbows and toes and turn yourself into a table.’’ Improve your relationships Let go of relationships that are no longer working. ‘‘Relationships that aren’t life- enhancing or ones that frequently feel like a burden or chore can go,’’ Edelman says. ‘‘It’s healthier to release these people from your life.’’ Meanwhile, work on your communication skills and your relationships will benefit. ‘‘Good communication is such an important skill. You can say no in a way that’s really reasonable and still maintain good, healthy relationships,’’ Edelman says. Slow your mind Meditation helps harmonise the mind and body and promotes healing, the director of the Sydney Meditation Centre, Kevin Hume, says. ‘‘Meditation settles the mind and relaxes the body. It restores internal balance – the optimum state for self-repair and healing.’’ Head outdoors Spending time somewhere green can lengthen your life, a Glasgow University study has found. ‘‘Open, undeveloped land with natural vegetation’’ encouraged people to walk and be more active, researchers reported. ‘‘Published work suggests that green space might affect health by inducing beneficial physical activity and by ameliorating the response to stress,’’ they said. Be proactive Don’t wait until you are unwell to do something about your health. Prevention really is the best cure. Haberecht says it is important to ‘‘have regular check-ups, eat well and look at optimising your health and nutrition rather than waiting for something to go wrong’’.
