Six Ways to Take Control of Your Health

Our HorseGrooms “in-house physician” is a huge advocate for the well-being and overall health of grooms. From access to affordable health care to hands-on help and advice, Dr. Hollis contributes resources to HorseGrooms that make it easy to find the answers to simple medical questions.

Feel free to contact Dr. Hollis in this HorseGrooms Community via her account with any health-related questions.

Just as there are no shortcuts to having healthy horses, there is no secret sauce to creating good health in humans. There are guidelines, just like making sure your horse has clean water and quality forage. 

This is the roadmap by the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. It’s not expensive, but it does take time to be mindful of your choices and develop good habits. Do you make sure the aisle is swept at the end of the day? Of course you do! Do the same with your own health. The most important pillar is nutrition, so be sure to take a look at Kimba’s (Kimberly Maloomian’s) articles on the HorseGrooms’ Guide to Nutrition to get started!

1. Whole Food, Plant-Based Nutrition

2. Physical Activity

3. Stress Management

4. Avoidance of Risky Substances

5. Restorative Sleep

6. Social Connection
