Most of the diseases contributing to early problems for those of us who have somehow made it past 40 are heavily influenced by our choice of lifestyle. Unless people are doing something like using Methamphetamines, these choices usually take a while to be noticed and can be rather shocking to the patient when they are noticed. Some changes are noticed before these damages occur without a painful wakeup calls, other patients like those that find out they’re diabetic in the emergency room after having a heart attack are shocked to find out that these problems have been developing for a while. These lessons don’t have to be learned the hard way, and oftentimes the damages can be reversed with improvements in diet and exercise. These changes in diet and exercise don’t have to be a different type of permanent suffering either, oftentimes patients who have made these changes say things like they feel better than they have in years and that they wish they would have started to be healthier years ago.
