Healthy Lifestyle

Establishing healthy lifestyle habits is vital to living a fuller, active life. Below are tips for building up these habits from rest to nutrition and relationships.

The best therapy is rest—because you have a finite amount of energy each day, it is important to fine-tune your inner sense of how much energy you have each day. You must restructure your life so that it is possible to stop what you are doing when your body tells you to stop. We recommend adjusting your daily schedule to accommodate your body rhythm. Follow a fixed schedule or going to bed and waking up at the same time each day.

Exercise is powerful—it can improve your mood, and is effective in managing fatigue and pain syndromes. Daily exercise of some kind is essential, as it prevents muscle wasting and it may enhance your immune system.

Good nutrition is vital to health and energy levels. A healthy diet is important for healing and preventing any chronic disease. Ensure that your diet is colorful in vegetables and fruit. Calmglow can help you determine which additional supplements might be needed to support your body—this may include a multivitamin, antioxidant supplements, omega-3s, or other supplements.

Managing stress is important for healing. Find a stress relief technique that works for you—prayer, yoga, deep-breathing, walking, singing, dancing, or anything that brings you joy and allows you to relax. Avoid stressful people and situations as much as possible, and additional herbal supplements might be beneficial as well.

Having supportive relationships in your life is extremely important. Spend your time around people who are understanding and willing to help you when you need it. Avoid negative, unsupportive people, and consider finding a support group as a positive resource and social outlet. Calmglow is happy to address any feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, or any other emotional concerns you might be experiencing.

What our
are saying

Always get clarity and understanding…

Dianne has always help me understand the complicated issues of hypothyroidism, understanding the symptoms and long term effects. She has helped with my dietary needs and overall well being. Highly recommend if you are still feeling the symptoms even if your on traditional medications.

The best part of talking with new patients…

I have worked with Dianne Hinton at Calmglow for 4 years. I receive calls from new patients every day. I think the best part of talking with new patients is that I give them the knowledge and hope in knowing that I–like all of Dianne’s staff–was her patient before her employee. I think that says a lot about Dianne as a practitioner. She is very compassionate and caring towards each individual patient.

Diane Hinton saved my life!

After over a year of traditional doctors misdiagnosing and mistreating my illness, Diane immediately got it right. She identified the root cause of my illness, and I went from being chronically ill to healed and healthy in less than a year. Diane listens to and cares for her patients like no one I’ve ever known. I highly recommend her for diagnosing the true health issues, rather than just treating your symptoms.

My husband and I just love Calmglow …

Just what is Functional Medicine?  Simply put…. I call it getting to the “cause” of a health issue. Rashes, High Pressure, Arthritis, Obesity, Insomnia, and Fatigue are a few of the issues she’s helped us with.  But what I really like best is; she doesn’t say “here, take this pill” and it’ll “treat the symptoms”.  She treats the “cause” of those symptoms so they truly go away without requiring “pills”.  Our bodies are healing, and the we feel we’re the healthiest we’ve been in a long time! What we’ve discovered about the manner in which our bodies “had been” functioning previously, from the in depth tests she recommends, was pretty astounding. We’ve learned so much since starting to see her as our practitioner, I would never choose to go back to an Allopathic doctor!
