Happy New Year whatever 2021 brought to you let 2022 be the best ever and a happy and healthy year. Now are you someone who starts off the new year with the best of intentions but within a week things slide? This is not unusual with goals because we write them down and then forget to check in with them. However, I have a couple of health related programmes that help you not only keep to your plan but hit those goals too!
Firstly, let’s cover cleansing and restoring your body and Habit Stacking will be the focus of my next blog. Now is the time when social media is awash with cleansing and detoxing programmes but do you really need one? We have amazing organs such as the kidneys and liver that do this for you but no organ can work to its full potential if it is overwhelmed with the toxins we put in and around our bodies from alcohol, drugs (medicinal and…), skincare and cleaning products to processed food and intensively farmed produce and all the added ingredients that entails.
In my case I have been poorly over the last couple of weeks with a nasty respiratory virus not Covid thankfully but I also want to give myself a restore from this too and kick any remaining symptoms to the kerb.
Cleansing the body helps us to eliminate what is causing us to operate below par whether we breathe it in, or we absorb it through our skin, or even eat in our food. Our bodies can get so overloaded that it can be hard for us to function well.
Do you want to feel better and live a more vibrant life? Sure! We all do! But where to start?
Your overall wellness starts with a healthy lifestyle, you need to lay certain foundations and strive to build on those foundations as much as you can.
• Eat Right
• Rest and Stress Management
• Reduce Toxic Load
We can’t always control what is going on around us but we can control how we respond. Even those living a clean life, like me can still be overwhelmed at times as stress increases the cortisol coursing through our bodies helping to promote an inflammatory state that also does not aid getting your system back on track. No time is more important than now with the pandemic continuing and the increase in cases as well as this new variant, so supporting your immune system to work at its very best is vital.
Now you may also benefit from cleansing your system if you are suffering with any of the following
You've not had the cleanest lifestyle
Rashes and skin infections
Irritation, unmotivated and sluggish
Feeling drained, tired and foggy headed
If you've had a terrible diet for the last gazillion years!
Aches and pains
In addition many people mistake nutritional deficiency symptoms for diseases and seek to remedy that disease with toxic drugs which eventually causes actual health problems!!
To rule this out simply feed your cells more and eliminate the possibility that these symptoms are merely nutritional deficiency issues.
How can we tell if we are getting enough nutrition?
Emotionally more stable
Greater ability to focus and remember things
Thicker, stronger, shinier hair
Less aches & pain
More quality sleep
Stronger bones & teeth
Healthier organs that can filter & metabolize effective
Improved gut health
and more good stuff...
Any of this sound familiar?
Your body will give you signs that it is not receiving the right amount of nutrients. When we take enough micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids etc.) and macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) our body will function as it should.
As a doctor with a passion about prevention being better than cure and with a diploma in nutrition I feel it is vital to address the issues that cause us so many problems which is a pro-inflammatory diet and find solutions to get you back on track.
