Healthy Living | 3 Essential Ingredients for Your New Year’s Healthy Resolution


health_fitness_logo Every New Year inspires a wave of self-improvement, which for many people includes improving their overall health. Unfortunately, a recent study from the University of Scranton’s Journal of Clinical Phycology says only 8 percent of those who make a New Year’s resolution see their goals come to fruition. new-years-resolution Regardless of the specific goal, people establishing resolutions to improve their health need to start with a foundation. A nutritional foundation is required for anyone who is setting out to improve his or her ‘health’,” says Dr. John Young, M.D., a physician specializing in the treatment of chronic illnesses through biochemical, physiological and nutraceutical technologies, and the author of “Beyond Treatment: Discover how to build a cellular foundation to achieve optimal health,” (www.YoungHealth.com).

“Many of us want to lose weight, gain muscle and improve our cardiovascular endurance, but those goals cannot be accomplished without addressing the body’s fundamental needs. A healthy body begins with a healthy cellular foundation, and a healthy cellular foundation begins with what we’re putting in our bodies.”

A protein shake is a common way some people like to supplement their health plans, but Dr. Young says those health drinks are usually missing one or more essential components. He lists them and explains why they’re so important.

  1. Whey protein: Can be a great option for protein supplementation assuming it’s of the highest possible quality. Look for protein powder that is cold processed (non-denatured), meaning it’s never heated to temperatures above 130 degrees. Also makes sure it’s made with milk from cows that haven’t been pumped full of hormones and that have been grazed on pesticide-free, chemical-free, natural grass pastures. Make sure the protein is completely free of chemicals, artificial flavors and artificial sweeteners.
  2. Omega oils: Because of their molecular makeup, Flax Seed oil and Cod Liver oil are two of the most important oils you can consume. They supply a number of important nutrients for nearly all systems of the body, including the heart and immune system as well as the brain. In order for these oils to be effectively incorporated by the body, they need to be “hidden”, or emulsified into a protein so they aren’t destroyed during the digestive processes. This is a huge key that most people completely miss.
  3. pH stabilization: pH is a measurement of the acidity or alkalinity in your body and ranges from zero on the acidity end to 14 on the alkaline end. Evidence suggests that a healthy balance in pH increases strength in muscle and bone, improves brain function and decreases the risk of chronic disease. Because our diets are so acidic these days, I use a pH balancing formula in my practice to help keep my patients in the stable pH range.

Along with the three pillars of Dr. Young’s approach to healthy protein shakes, he recommends appropriate amounts of fruits and vegetables and an overall balanced diet.
