There are the top ways to prevent diseases with time to reverse them:

1. Eliminate stress from your life – learn to meditate and don’t sweat the small stuff.

2. Get enough sleep – give your body enough time to rest and recharge every day.

3. Undergo hormone testing – this type of testing will help to keep your body functioning correctly and always at its best.

4. Add nutritional supplements if needed – eating regular whole foods is really the best way to supplement your diet, but if you have let yourself go for too long you may need a little help at first.

5. Keep your body detoxified regularly – drink a small glass of lemon water in the morning to help the alkaline level of your body and check with your doctor as to whatever else you can do to keep yourself free of toxins.

6. Tests all adults should never miss:

  •  A regular yearly checkup – make sure that you meet with your doctor at least once a year for a complete checkup.
  • Blood pressure readings – have your blood pressure readings checked on a regular basis. Invest in a small wrist blood pressure cuff and know what the ranges are for a healthy blood pressure reading. If you are prescribed medication make sure you take it exactly as directed by your physician.
  • Screenings for cervical cancer – woman should check for cervical cancer especially by having a Pap test and the HPV test for human papillomavirus.
  • Vaccinations – there are many disagreements regarding vaccines for children, but as you become adults some vaccines are necessary. Talk with your doctor regarding the yearly virus vaccine, the vaccine to prevent shingles, and the one for pneumonia.
  • Screenings for breast cancer – speak with your doctor to find out how often you should be having mammograms in order to detect breast cancer. You do need one basic image so that future images can be compared to the first in order to detect any changes or possible problems.
  • Assessment of your Body Mass Index or BMI – one of the biggest things your doctor can detect with your BMI is whether you may have future heart issues, blood pressure problems, or become diabetic.
