'If all people understood how to use water one-half of all the afflictions from disease would be removed. The other half would be taken care of by understanding how and when to eat, how to breathe and the necessity of daily exercise.'' Louisa Lust (1868-1925)

Lifestyle factors are those behaviours and daily choices that provide the fuel and structure for the body to function. They ensure that the terrain of the body, that is the internal environment, has the nutrients and ingredients to sustain health and to aid healing and repair.

Lifestyle factors are the aspects of health promotion, the healthy lifestyle habits, which influence all stages of life and all stages of health and disease. 


They include:

  • water

  • nutrition

  • hygiene

  • posture

  • Rest and Relaxation

  • sleep

  • movement

  • expression of emotions

  • positive mental outlook

They also include choices that can affect health such as smoking, alcohol consumption, recreational drugs and how we manage symptoms.
