What is the very best gift you can give to your family and friends?
The best and most cherished gift you can give those close to you is the gift of your presence. Let’s talk about some good ways to make sure that you get to hang around for a good, long while. Making some small changes can greatly impact the longevity of your time here with us.
Antioxidants are molecules within our bodies that fight free radicals. Free radicals are compounds that can hurt us if they become too high in our bodies. Free radicals cause things like diabetes, some cancers, heart disease, eye lens degeneration, and other diseases.
Increasing our Antioxidants can help to increase our overall health. Some foods are high in antioxidants that contain Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc, Manganese, and Vitamin A. Adding these into our diets can greatly increase our overall health. Let’s see what these beneficial vitamins look like through food:
Vitamin A: Dairy produce, eggs, and liver
Vitamin C: Most fruits and vegetables, especially berries, oranges, and bell peppers
Vitamin E: Nuts and seeds, sunflower and other vegetable oils, and green, leafy vegetables
Beta-carotene: Brightly colored fruits and vegetables, such as carrots, peas, spinach, and mangoes
Lycopene: Pink and red fruits and vegetables, including tomatoes and watermelon
Lutein: Green, leafy vegetables, corn, papaya, and oranges
Selenium: Rice, corn, wheat, and other whole grains, as well as nuts, eggs, cheese, and legumes
Remember that the natural foods with bright and vibrant colors are the super foods that hold some great antioxidants. So, if you are in the grocery store and don’t remember the list above, just look for the brightly colored fresh produce and you should be on the right track!
Some great tools to use in ridding your body of toxins are Ionic Foot Baths, Raindrop Technique, and Aromatherapy Massages.
The Ionic Foot Bath pulls toxins from your body through the feet using the process of IONS. We all have negative and positive ions in our body. We actually want more NEGATIVE ions than POSITIVE ions. The Ionic machine helps to pull out the positive ions so the negative ions have the opportunity to proliferate and bring your body into a place of healing. Some folks think this is “pseudo science” because they say, “the water changes whether your feet are in the water or not”. Well, that’s TRUE!! The DIFFERENCE is what floats to the top or the sides when your feet are IN the water. In the thousands of foot baths I have facilitated I’ve seen some incredible changes for the person doing the foot bath. This extremely beneficial tool is one of the many services offered at my center. Let me know if you are interested in more information.
The second way to pull toxins from your body is through the Raindrop Technique. This is a very relaxing and calming technique that uses essential oils to support the body’s immune system, increase the detox process and to support emotional health which is as we know often the root of physical issues. I also offer this service at my center and would love to get you started on your wellness journey. You will NOT regret this!! It’s AMAZING!
The third amazing tool in ridding your body of toxins is Aromatherapy Massage. Utilizing essential oils and the art of massage therapy, you can get to feeling less weighed down by the awesome benefits it offers. Some of those benefits are relaxing the muscles, encouraging the lymphatic system to flow which in turn supports the immune system, and of course taking some time to self reflect and care for the overall body. If you are interested in Aromatherapy Massage, let me know.
I would love to help you get your body into longevity mode by adding in some healthy antioxidants and helping rid your body of toxins. Today’s topic is one that is close to my heart and something that I am passionate about. I truly enjoy helping people become the best version of themselves so they can enjoy life to the fullest.
I hope your Christmas is as wonderful as you are, friend!
