Welcome to MBI Health Education, which specializes in providing good basic information on how to improve and maintain a good level of health and fitness for a fulfilling life.
What is meant by a good level of health?
It is being able to enjoy life in a physical body that functions at its fullest potential, illness free and without the aches and pains associated with a lesser state of health. While we understand that it is not always possible for people to reclaim their youth and the vitality and energy that they had as a young person, it is possible to make improvements in current health levels by making positive changes to diet, activity levels and lifestyle through personal choice.
We're here to provide the inspiration, motivation and knowledge that can help you to make those improvements if you choose to work with them.
Health is really a personal choice, whether you believe that or not. You can choose what you are going to eat to a certain extent and you can choose whether you are going to exercise or not. While there are probably hundreds of excuses that a person may be able to come up for not eating right or exercising, they all boil down to choice.
We can't make anyone get fitter or eat the right diet. We can only provide the kind of information that, if put to use, can help a person to improve their diet, their activity levels and lifestyle choices. But they have to choose to use them or not.
If you choose to improve your health, then our collection of informational articles, fully researched and originally written exclusively for this website can help you. They are there for you to read, digest and understand to the best of your ability and to help you to gain a better level of self knowledge so that you can help yourself to lead a healthier lifestyle.

Health with Age
As we age, we tend to have a pretty generalist view on how our health ought to be. It's common to equate aging with a decline in overall health and the gradual onset of a variety of age related illnesses along with certain physical and mental conditions. There is a lot of interest in certain aspects of anti aging health strategies and products to attempt to hold back the march of time. But are such measures justified?

Often when we think about personal health we tend to visualize an adult figure and the many aspects of it appearance. But it's just as important to consider our health at every stage of our lives, from when we are babies right up to adult age. Getting parenting information from a Baby Source is a part of the process. While ensuring that diet is considered all the way through every member of our family's lives is another equally important area to look at.

Is Midlife Really a Crisis?
Most of you will be familiar with the phrase "midlife crisis" that people often bandy about describing the sometimes strange or at least uncharacteristic behavior that besets middle age. Some of that behavior is just harmlessly odd, while some people do some highly destructive things.
You probably know someone or other that went off the rails and did things like having extra-marital affairs, behaving like a person 20 years their junior, or even getting itchy feet and embarking on a midlife travel spree that they feel they need to make up for a boringly "stick in the mud" lifestyle or fulfil hitherto unfulfilled ambitions. But is this time of life really a crisis, or is there something else underpinning the need to behave oddly or even badly?

No Carb Diets
It is a matter for debate among diet experts and the industry that drives the commercial diets whether removing carbohydrates from the diet is a good thing or a bad thing. From a weight loss standpoint, it would seem to be a good thing, at least in the short term.
