The benefits of exercise have been known for a long time. It helps regulate hormones, increase metabolism, increase bone mass, lower cholesterol levels, and increase the immune system. Even the most moderate of exercise programs can achieve this.
3. Reduce the Amount of Toxins
We are constantly exposed to toxins through cleaning products, food, and pollution. The different toxins create free radicals in the body which can lead to diseases like diabetes, heart problems, allergies, nerve damage, mental disorders, and cancer to name a few.
Therefore it is important to feed the body with antioxidants that can neutralize the free radicals. Blueberries, lentils, pinto and black beans, oranges, pumpkin, and spinach are high in antioxidants.
Make sure you eat a variety of fruit and vegetables.
4. Avoid refined carbohydrates
High glycemic index carbohydrates such as refined sugar, flour, and white rice are anti-nutrients. They rob the cells of nutrients, making it difficult for the body to absorb nutrients. They stress organs and processes by spiking the blood sugar. Constant blood spikes will lead to inflammation
5. Make Sure You Get enough Probiotics
Probiotics mean pro-life and they restore the balance in the intestines. We need good bacteria to maintain good health. The good bacteria helps break down food to keep the intestines healthy.
Acidophilus and bifidophilus assist in fighting inflammation by killing dangerous microorganism. Acidophilus makes the lactos needed to digest milk, and it is also involved in producing several B vitamins. Fermented vegetables, soured milk, kombucha, and kefir are some ways you can get Probiotics.
6. Eat More Alkaline Food
Normal pH is 6.0-7.0 but most of us are acidic. The acidity provokes inflammation, and high acidity prevents the absorption of many vitamins and minerals. It means that the body is constantly deficient even with supplements. Eat more alkalized food such as green vegetables, fruits and lemons. These foods may assist in restoring the pH balance.
7. Keep the internal environment healthy
It is important to keep the internal environment clean so you don’t get sick. Doing a cleanse twice a year is recommended since toxins weaken the body. Plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, freshly squeezed juices, and reducing the amount of chemicals in food, are great ways to assist the body in keeping the internal environment healthy.
8. Don’t Forget the Omega Oils
Start slowly and don’t change everything at once. Too many changes too quickly are hard to stick to.
