|...And Detoxifying the Body
Do you suffer from fatigue, muscle aches, frequent headaches? Did you know these symptoms can be attributed to hidden chemicals in shampoos, deodorants and makeup?
Becoming more aware of what we use on and ingest into our bodies can help improve our health and well-being. First and foremost, read all labels! Check out your personal care and beauty products. Can you pronounce the ingredients? Do you see any red-flag ingredients like parabens or triclosan that can disrupt hormone function? Make the switch to organic products that utilize plant-based minerals to support your health while helping to enhance your natural beauty! (Tip: Check out the
Savvy Minerals makeup line!)
Incorporating foods into your diet like cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, kale), green teen, grapefruit and berries not only help to nourish the body, but also help purge toxins that accumulate in the body. Drinking 8-10 glasses (avoid plastic bottles and cups!) of filtered water each day helps maximize these detoxification efforts. Have you heard of wolfberries? Hailing from China, these powerful superfruits provide vital minerals, vitamins and antioxidants to help support energy levels, normal cellular function, as well as whole-body and normal eye health. A daily dose of wolfberry-rich Ningxia Red by Young Living helps to energize, fortify and revitalize.
Having a regular exercise routine promotes a healthy body and mind, enabling the lymphatic system to do its job and cleanse the body of toxins, while reducing stress that often bogs down the mind. Studies show that regular exercise also reduces insomnia and enables deeper sleep. Researchers believe that deep sleep clears out harmful toxins from the brain, a process that may reduce the risk of neurodegenerative disease like dementia and Alzheimer's Disease.
