Your body wants to regain its health if you let it. But if you keep reinjuring yourself three times a day, with poor nutrition, you interrupt the healing process. Your food intake has a strong connection with your healing progress.
It is best to keep your plate very colorful. Colorful foods are often healthier, as they contain anti-inflammatory and antioxidant pigments. Blueberries, Oranges, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Brussel Sprouts—these are powerhouses in keeping your inflammation levels low and your immune system high—WIN WIN!!
A body in motion stays in motion, and a body at rest stays at rest. Keeping chronic inflammation in check is critical to overall health. Staying active and eating the rainbow never sounded so good.
Our lymphatic system plays an integral role in our immune function. It is our first line of defense against disease. It is an entire network of vessels and nodes—pretty cool huh? Our lymphatic system does not have a pump to move our lymph fluid…the only way to get your lymphatic system moving is to get your body moving. Activity and motion—walking, rebounding, yoga, stretching, and drinking clean water and eating fruit—such as watermelon, oranges, berries, grapes.
Packaged processed foods (Frankenfoods) are the biggest culprits in stagnating our lymph and colon function. Fiber intake is critical to human health as well…what we don’t eliminate we accumulate—now that’s a shitty subject! When our lymphatic system and our colon is backed up from lack of movement and lack of clean food and water, this is when the inflammation begins—leading to a myriad of dis-ease.
Do you see the pattern here…true health is not hard to obtain—it’s simple—stay in motion, stay active and eat the rainbow. Your body will thank you.
It is our human birth right to wake up each day without pain. Getting older shouldn’t mean that aches and pains are par for the course. Good input equals good output. Feeling good from the inside out is what its all about. Combining motion and nutrition sets you up for success.
