The following healthy practices of eating right, exercising, resting & managing stress, reducing toxic load, practicing informed self care, and taking a proactive role in your healthcare will help you live healthier, longer.
Eat RightThe foundation of our health begins with nutrition - which is what we put into our bodies, as well as how well we assimilate (or digest) the nutrients. In fact, optimal health depends on the optimal functioning of our digestive system - the most important factor in our physical health. Your diet needs to have an abundance of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. The food we eat should be low-fat sources of protein, moderate amounts of complex carbohydrates, and healthy sources of fats.
Eating right means choosing fresh, whole, unprocessed foods and avoiding foods that are over processed and contain high levels of simple sugars and saturated fats. Hydration, fibre, digestive enzymes, probiotics, essential fatty acids, physical activity, stress reduction and eliminating allergens are all beneficial for digestive health. Once your digestion is performing as it should, and you are getting proper nutrition and hydration, you have created a solid foundation for optimal health and wellness!
