Thought for a change I would create a post with a number of self-help health tips, instead of concentrating on one specific topic……
# 1 – Your thymus is located in the center top of your chest, below your collar bone. When you tap on it, it triggers the production of T-cells, boosts energy, relieves stress, and increases strength and vitality. For an instant energy boost, tap your thymus with your fingertips for 20 seconds, while slowly and deeply breathing in and out and you will enjoy a natural energy surge.
# 2 – Whether you hug a tree or just sit under one, your health and energy will get a boost….
# 3 – Always include some kind of fat or oil when eating or drinking something high in Vitamin A. A is fat-soluble, which means it needs some form of fat to be readily absorbed by the body. Whenever I’m drinking fresh veggie juice I always try to remember to eat a spoonful of coconut oil at the beginning. Vitamin D is fat-soluble, too, so the same thing applies.
# 4 – Use salt lamps to add negative ions to your environment, lift your mood, off-set EMFs, plus purify and dehumidify the air. They also amplify the natural frequency of 8 to 10 cycles per second in the human brain, which is the normal resonance synchronized with the resonant frequency of the planet’s electro-magnetic field (7.83 Hz or cycle per second) and stabilize alpha wave rhythms in our brain.
# 5 – Have you tried kombucha? I’ve become a big fan of this tangy, fizzy fermented beverage. There are so many brands and flavors available these days, some with chia seeds added, which bumps up the nutritional value and health benefits even more. One of my go-to snacks is organic popcorn, popped in coconut oil , then drizzled with organic butter and sprinkled with Himalayan crystal salt, …all washed down with a Reed’s Gogi-Ginger Kombucha. Yum!
# 6 – This is along the same lines as # 3. Being out in Nature….whether sitting under a tree or walking barefoot…is good medicine. But if the weather’s cold or barefooting doesn’t sound like such a great idea for some reason, you can always use Vibes Up products to provide grounding energies/negative ions to your body.
# 7 – Astaxathin is not only good for your skin when taken internally, but can also be used externally. Just empty the contents of a gelcap into your moisturizer or face cream…its yellow color will also add a slight tint or “healthy glow” to your skin.
# 8 – You can also add Vitamin C to your personal care products. Good for your skin and helps add some protection from sunburn.
# 9 – Diatomaceous earth makes a great polish for removing stains from your teeth. Just sprinkle on a dry or slightly wet toothbrush and start brushing. Don’t let it all get too wet because you want to maintain the grittiness of the mixture. It may take a little elbow grease and adding more D. E., but it does a pretty amazing job. Makes me think dental hygienists should use it for polishing/cleaning teeth, since it’s all-natural, basically tasteless, 85% silica (which is good for bone health), and actually good for you if swallowed.
# 10 – Make your own almond/nut milk…..
Soak 1 cup nuts for at least 4-8 hours (to help get rid of phytic acid); rinse once soaked. Add nuts to blender with 3 cups of water and blend until creamy and white. Add more water, if needed/desired. If you want to sweeten, add in raw honey or a couple of dates. Cinnamon, vanilla optional for extra flavor. Pour mixture through your nut milk bag, into a jar to store for 4-5 days in the refrigerator.
PERSONAL NOTE: Be sure to use structured water, which will add to the benefits of your nut milk. And don’t waste/throw out the almond “debris” you strain from the liquid; this nutritious mix can be used as a base/flour for making wheat-free cookies and many other things.
# 11 – Broccoli and cabbage contain a very special molecule called sulforaphane. Research shows that sulforaphane increases the expression of the VDR gene, which helps with absorbing vitamin D. In other words, the sulforaphane that we find in cruciferous vegetables and herbs like wasabi helps the body absorb more vitamin D—improving bone mass, as well as the ability to fight infection, cancer, and inflammation.
# 12 – Just a few of the many health issues coconut oil can be used for….
# 13 – And coconut oil has a number of around-the-house uses, too!
