Healthy Lifestyle Program

Several clinical studies have shown regular physical exercise and a balanced diet are key to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Regular physical exercise and a healthy diet are the two key factors to:

  • Prevent the risk of chronic diseases (cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, heart diseases, infarction, stroke, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, cancer)
  • Improve and prevent cognitive decline
  • Control body weight, reducing negative consequences of overweight and obesity
  • Reduce the stress
  • Strengthen bones, muscles, and joints, and prevent osteoporosis
  • Maintain self-esteem and a general wellbeing

This applies to all people with risk factors or familiarity for certain diseases, but also to healthy people with no risk factors. Physical exercise should be prescribed as an actual therapy.
