In Good Health: HealthPlus’ Essential Guide for Healthy Living (Part 1)

As we strive towards the path to overall wellness, it is imperative that we know exactly what to focus on and how to achieve healthy living. We have put together this extensive guide to help you accomplish your health goals in 2024.

We look at all the factors responsible for fitness like our gut health, hair, skin and nails, family health, joints, bones and muscles as well as methods to manage stress and anxiety. Let’s begin!

Gut health

The gut is home to trillions of microorganisms, collectively known as the gut microbiome. This diverse ecosystem of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other microbes plays a crucial role in maintaining health and harmony within the body.

You may find yourself experiencing bloating, gas, or having an uncomfortable feeling after a meal. This is usually related to our gut and what we put into it, your body simply works with what it has been given. Much like a computer, if you input unhealthy foods into your body, naturally, the output will be sickness, bloating, weight gain and other health related issues.

Gut health has emerged as a key indicator of overall well-being, influencing everything from digestion to immunity and even mental health. An indisputable solution to having a healthy gut is: eat right. Because we are unable to properly determine how much of the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) actually go into our diet, it is important to support our gut with supplements

By being more intentional about what we consume and introducing supplements like Vitabiotics Wellzyme Digestive Enzyme (6 Enzyme Formula) Capsules x 60, Bio Nutrition Total Colon Wellness x 60, Health Plus Colon Cleanse 48-oz into our diet, we achieve maximum gut wholeness.

Hair, skin and nails

Our hair, skin, and nails are not just external features. They reflect our internal health and well-being. Nourishing them goes beyond cosmetic concerns—it's about promoting vitality and radiance from within. 

For the hair, we encourage gentle cleansing through the use of sulphate-free shampoos. They help to cleanse your hair without stripping away natural oils which allows your hair to maintain its moisture balance. For hydration and conditioning, use nourishing conditioners and hair masks to hydrate and replenish moisture, promoting softness and manageability.

Bonus tip: treat your scalp with care by massaging it regularly to stimulate circulation and promote healthy hair growth. 

To ensure glowing complexion and proper hydration for the skin, implement a routine based on your skin type. Begin with cleansing. Cleanse your skin gently to remove impurities and makeup without stripping away natural oils. 

Next, to endure hydration, use moisturisers and serums enriched with hyaluronic acid and antioxidants to hydrate and protect your skin, promoting a radiant complexion. Daily sunscreen application also shields your skin from harmful UV rays and prevents premature ageing and sun damage.

When it comes to nail care, we are all about strength, length and health. For nourishing treatments of the nails, use nail strengtheners and cuticle oils to maintain and protect your nails, promoting strength and flexibility. Another cheap but effective nail care trick is gentle maintenance. Avoid harsh chemicals and excessive filing to prevent damage and maintain the integrity of your nails. 

Diet also plays a part in determining your nail health. Consume a balanced diet rich in nutrients such as biotin, vitamins, and minerals to support nail health and growth from the inside out.

Nurturing your hair, skin, and nails is essential for promoting overall welfare and radiance. Embrace the journey to radiant beauty, and let your inner vitality shine through.
