Are you sleeping enough, eating enough, hydrating enough, or socializing enough? What happens if the answer is “no”? At what point will efficiency become a burden to our biology?
In this Episode of the Align Podcast, Dr. Ruscio and I talk about how the answer to our health issues often lies in the foundational layers of our health. Too often, we have the initial reaction to look beyond those layers, when the answer to our conditions or disease lies in what we nourish and treat our bodies on a daily basis.
Plus, we talk about how moderation is key to everything. We all have different bodies, so we must all make use of measures on a moderate basis, such as dieting and exercising, as all of our bodies will respond in their own unique way. Lastly, stress isn't always a hazard. When loaded properly, stressors help our organisms become more resilient, every time we recover.
Dr. Ruscio is a Doctor of Natural Medicine, Doctor of Chiropractic, clinical researcher, and author. His book, Healthy Gut Healthy You, has helped countless patients regain their health even when numerous doctors have been unable to.
