The secret to good health is the potential for the body to heal itself. Life depends on our body’s ability to defend itself against disease. In 2018 if we don’t already, let’s focus on our immune system and assist it to perform at it’s highest potential. For the immune system to reach this it must have organic nutrients, ideally these would come from whole foods grown in organic soils, as quality is a reflection of the environment it is grown in.
Did you know, antibiotics found in medicine and food (animal products) we eat can destroy the delicate balance of bacteria in our gut as can toxins in the air we breathe, food preservatives, alcohol, salt, fluorides and smoking to name just a few. Our gut requires both good and bad bacteria for good health.
Toxicity in your gut can cause an imbalance of bacteria causing concerns such as mood symptoms, behavioural disorders, tummy aches, constipation or diarrhoea and eczema.
We need to feed our bodies fresh food which our gut can digest and flood our body with vital nutrients. Hippocrates once said ‘Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be they food’.
When looking at changes to your lifestyle think about ‘What can I add or what can I eliminate to make it better?’
- Avoid Stress, take time out to relax and meditate or listen to music
- Avoid toxins found in common household products, skincare products and food
- Avoid inflammatory foods such as processed foods which contain artificial colours, flavours and sweeteners
- Plan your meals ahead and include lean protein, healthy fats, wholegrains, omega 3 fatty acids, vegetables and fresh fruit
- Eat fermented foods such as yogurt, sauerkraut, kim-chi, kefir & kombucha
- A Probiotic supplement plays a significant role in restoring digestive health. While it’s always best to obtain your nutrients from whole foods sometimes life is too busy and we just can’t eat enough of what is required to meet our nutritional needs. InLiven is our superfood probiotic supplement to help bridge the gap. It’s 100% raw, concentrated, vegan, certified organic and fermented without any fillers or chemicals unlike the majority of supplements on the market today. Give it a try, just 1 teaspoon a day, your gut will love you for it ❤️
- Detox your body and try a 3 Day FAST
- Move your body and exercise, even walking a few times a week will help
Wishing everyone a Happy & Healthy New Year! 🎉🎈
