Could you make your lifestyle better effortlessly?
We now know a lot more about the health aspects of lifestyle. Take coffee as an example, did you know that-
Coffee lowers mortality by about 10-15%. The effect on mortality is mainly through lowering cardiovascular event rate (heart attacks and strokes).
It has been shown that only coffee made with filter papers leads to a lower mortality.
There is also a reduction in some cancers-particularly liver cancer.
Coffee protects the brain against some diseases. A 30% reduction in Alzheimers disease has been reported in people drinking coffee. There is also a reduction in Parkinson’s disease.
The ideal amount for an average person is 4 cups per day.
Women who drink coffee have a body fat percentage 4% less than those that do not-a substantial decrease.
There is a lower risk of diabetes in coffee drinkers.
However too much coffee tends to increase obesity and arthritis.
Decaffeinated coffee does contain some caffeine-5-10% of the ammount in caffeinated coffee.
Apart from caffeine coffee contains other compounds which are probably responisble for most of its beneficial effects.
So most people should drink coffee every day.
There are obviously many other aspects of a healthy lifestyle other than coffee. There is so much information that it is difficult for people to keep up. Sometimes the information in the media is not even clear. Judging by the patients that I have seen over the years even if you are trying to be careful it is very likely that you have missed 2-3 things that could possibly enable you to stay healthy for longer and potentially live longer. I can help point these out to you and hopefully you will then have better health as you age.
If you think that further information may be helpful-please consider booking a 20 minute telephone (or video) consultation.
These are with me-Dr Simon Horner. I am a very approachable consultant physician with 30 years experience of clinical medicine. For further details please see-about or my clinical website. I would ask you about your current lifestyle and make suggestions tailored to it. The consultations cost only £49. This is a small price considering it could show you ways that you could easily change your lifestyle and enjoy better longterm health.
I decided to start this clinic as I have now retired from the NHS after 35 years in high intensity cardiac posts. I wanted to pass on some of my experience and to keep helping people. Also, I know from talking to patients that almost all pateints benefit from and are keen to have more information about many everyday aspects of lifestyle.
I had a consultation with a very intelligent lady professional lady who was very careful about her diet to the point that she was eating wild salmon. When I told her about something she had completely missed said “where can I get this information”-well the answer is now in this clinic.
I made some recomendations to a 92 year old man who was lacking in energy. After making the changes he said “I have much more energy” and “I cannot believe how good I feel considering my age”.
