Hello, this is a brand new year for making resolutions regarding your natural health. You are going to be as healthy as you can be, for yourself and for all those you love. Live a healthy life, eat natural foods and let your natural beauty shine through.Heres how you do it:
Eat organic food. Trash the junk. If you only read what goes into making that junk, aka processed foods things like colorants, preservatives and nitrites youd head for the trash can.
Organic : Foods from the organic market, food in its natural form,even if packaged, bagged, boxed or canned. If they contain no chemical or artificial additives, they are pure and natural. Organic food producers have a strict certification procedure to go through before they can use the organic label. Their food must not be sprayed with insecticides and other chemicals nor genetically altered to grow faster, bigger, more disease resistant, more perfectly shaped. You dont want to eat vegetables with pig genes injected into their DNA!
Although some processed food companies do listen to peoples health concerns and produce foods with minimal additives, processed foods are linked to diseases like obesity, hypertension, heart disease and cancer. They have been found to contain colorants, emulsifiers, preservatives,artificial sweeteners, stabilizers, texturizers and even bleach products. To keep in good natural health, stay with organic foods. They might be a little more pricey than conventional foods but if we support our organic farmers, we can keep prices manageable. There is no substitute for whole foods for taste and goodness.
Drink enough fluids. The total amount of fluids you need per day depends on your size, activity level, state of health and the environment. Fluids include water, tea, coffee, beer, wine and juices, though water is the easiest to get. Incidentally, plastic bottles are a bad idea. They leach BPA, a toxic chemical, when exposed to heat. Buy a water filter for your home and bring filtered water in a stainless steel bottle wherever you go. Go the extra mile to protect your natural health.
Every system in your body depends on water. It flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to all your cells and provides a moist environment for mucous membranes like your mouth, nose and throat. When you do not have enough fluid in your body for normal bodily functions, it is called dehydration. Even mild dehydration drains your energy and makes you tired.
Keep your body clean. Hand washing is the first line of defense against infection.Cleanse your body of dirt which carries germs. Cleanse your digestive system of accumulated waste which leads to a whole host of sicknesses. They include pelvic pain, inflamed bowels, bad breath and chronic headache. Thats just for a start. It is vital to natural health to have a smoothly functioning digestive system. Holistic practitioners teach that all diseases start there.
Body cleansing is part of healthy living, especially with the amount of pollutants in the air we breathe and the food we eat. Even whole foods pick up some contaminants during transportation to your kitchen. There are different ways of doing body cleansing, the most controversial being colonics. There are proponents and opponents of the practice, and they can all talk at length on their views. Its your call what you want to use. Exercise! Thats right, exercise. Move. We have become such a sedentary society, resulting in ever rising statistics of.
Obesity, diabetes,hypertension, heart disease and arthritis. Lock the car in the garage. Only bring it out for journeys of more than two miles. Go cycling. Work up a sweat. Its healthy to sweat. It may not clean out your toxins (thats actually a fallacy), but it sure makes you know youre burning up calories, keeping your muscles and joints supple, and exercising your heart. After a sweat, drink water to replenish your body fluid. Then shower off the sweat because dirt and bacteria cling to a moist body, causing itching and acne.
Cycling is only one form of exercise. You can also work out in the gym, swimming, punching, weight lifting . Theres bound to be a gym near you, with the proliferation of gyms nationwide in recent years. Of course, always check with your doctor first before embarking on any sort of strenuous exercise regime. Walking is about the safest, gentlest exercise you can do. It is not always necessary to work up a sweat.
Exercise reverses the detrimental effects of stress. It is a potent antidepressant. And it is the best thing you can do for your brain for mood, memory and learning. As a rule of thumb, 30 minutes a day of moderate exercise is recommended, but there are no hard and fast rules. Simply make regular physical activity part of your life for the best natural health benefits.
Mind and body health are mutually symbiotic. We gain peace of mind when alls well inside and outside of ourselves. The outside world includes those less fortunate, so let us extend a helping hand to bring some brightness into others lives, and that brightness will reflect back on ourselves. Could peace be any simpler?
