I always thought I drank plenty of water. However, a trip to the ER, diagnosis, kidney stones, clearly showed I was not drinking enough water! My blood results reflected a state of dehydration. Surprise! Recommendation was very simple, drink more water. We should drink half our body weight in ounces each day. So I would like to share with you the benefits of drinking more water. I found this on a wall poster at my last appointment at Inside Outside Thermography www.insideoutthermography.com The following will probably amaze and startle you. Here are 7 reasons why you should drink more water:
Since starting my holistic healing journey 3 years ago, I've been on a mission to educate myself on how I can best protect my body to live a longer, fuller life. One of my biggest concerns has always been how I can protect my body from cancers. I've lost 3 people in my family to cancer and have many family and friends today that are battling various forms. I know we live in a toxic world today, and while there are many factors that are out of our control, I strive to protect my body with things that are in my control. I am far from perfect, and I am still learning, but I wanted to share something important with you that I've recently learned on how to better protect your DNA.
Do I have your permission to be transparent? Over the past year of educating and helping people improve their health, one of the most frustrating things to me is when I get complaints that someone hasn't lost the weight they wanted "fast enough." Now I will admit that my social feed will often share exciting success stories of people transforming their bodies with a great nutritional cleansing program that I recommend, however, I have to remind people that weight loss is the byproduct of your body getting healthy from the inside out. While we all might have a short term goal of looking great in our bikinis and bathing suits this summer, I am more concerned about my body's ability to live into the 100s and how I can spend more time on this earth happy and healthy with my family.Read More
As I was getting ready for my engagement pictures, I realized the last thing that had been on my mind was "getting in shape" for my wedding. But then I got to thinking, I haven't always been able to manage my weight and lean muscle with ease, and in fact if we were talking this time last year and I had a wedding in 2.5 months, I'd be freaking out because I didn't have my health under control.
It took me 28.5 years to finally have full control over my body where I didn't have to wake up in pain every day and wonder how my mood would be that day depending on my comfort. So I have a little secret for you: If you want to get into the best wedding shape and be able to maintain it with ease, know that it has NOTHING to do with your workouts or going to the gym.
I can’t believe it took me 28 years to feel FABULOUS! I can’t believe that I lived with a constant stomach ache my whole life. I can’t believe that I thought all the expensive beauty products in the world would make me beautiful. I can’t believe I thought all the retail therapy would help ease my stress. I can’t believe I trusted my doctor’s word that I had to just deal with my IBS and that my hypothyroidism was incurable. I am grateful that at 26 years old I found the holistic world with some great doctors and educators to teach me the truth.
The truth is that understanding your health is quite simple. The food you put in your body will make up your cells, blood, skin, hair, and soul. If you feed your body crap, then you are going to eventually look and feel like crap! If you aren’t giving your body the vitamins and minerals it needs, how do you expect to have soft skin, beautiful hair, and a clear face? If you aren’t giving your body nutrition, what do you think will happen to your cells when they start to divide? Will they divide and replicate into more healthy cells, or will the divide and start to build cancer cells and other metabolic diseases? We all have cancer and bad cells in our body, and only YOU have the power to fight them off by giving your body proper nutrition.
Supplementation is key not only for weight loss, but also to maintain a healthy body. Just as it is important to know your farmer and understand your food quality, it is also important to understand the manufacturing practices of your supplements and only buy from companies that you can trust.Read More
