Mijas-based chiropractor Dr Eugen Roth spoke to clients and volunteers ar the Age Care coffee morning in Calahonda last week.
“Small changes can make big differences” was the theme of his talk which showed how small lifestyle changes can have significant effects on health and well-being. The essence of trying to make any change is to have compelling reasons for doing so, he explained, such as a need to improve sleep, energy, fitness, anxiety or coping with stress.
Diet changes to include more fresh vegetables, fruit, nuts and seeds as well as certain spices can also make a difference said the chiropractor. He stressed the benefits of including a lemon a day in a diet and drinking sufficient water. It is also important, he said, to be aware of habitual patterns which may lead to not sleeping well or stress and to overcome these by relaxation, walking, swimming or making changes. Having a long siesta in the afternoon or watching exciting films prior to going to bed may be reasons for difficulty sleeping, he said.
After the talk the expert answered questions on eating, diet and health-related issues.
