What Are You Thinking About?

Thinking the same thoughts day and night may sooner or later manifest them in your world and make them your reality. This means that if you want your life to be as you want it to be, you have to be careful about what you think. One needs to start thinking more positively. As you think, so your life becomes. It is your mind that creates the kind of life you live. Everything starts from within, from the most simple action to the greatest achievement. We cannot always control our external circumstances, but we can always control our thoughts.

Are You Underweight?

Did you know that being underweight and overweight are from the same problem source: ACIDITY. Up to half the nutrients that go into your body can be eaten up by harmful microorganisms that thrive in acidic environments, causing you to be excessively thin. The body is literally wasting away, which can put you at a higher risk of serious illness than an overweight person! But the higher levels of pH of alkaline water can neutralize acid in your bloodstream. This is why it is vital to alkalize your body with pure alkaline water, an alkaline diet and an alkaline lifestyle.

Exercise and Dementia

Keeping active is hugely important for reducing the risk of dementia, managing the condition and improving quality of life. There are several different types of exercises that can be adapted to individual preferences and abilities. For example, look for seated exercises for people who have difficulty walking. Dance can be beneficial for people living with dementia, especially those who have been recently diagnosed. Dancing improves coordination and balance but also has the social aspect which makes it fun and interactive. Consult a physiotherapist to determine which exercise is best for you.

4 Natural Ways to Boost Your Immunity

There are plenty of natural ways to help you boost your immune system and stay healthy all year long: 1. Focus on Vitamin D. Did you know that most people have low vitamin D levels? Even dangerously low, within a range that could severely limit your immune system. 2. Eat More Garlic. Garlic is one of the most potent of all superfoods that goes back thousands of years for treatment of illness. 3. Get Your Probiotics. 70% of your immune system lies in your gut flora and the health of the friendly organisms in there to protect you against pathogens and sickness. 4. Avoid ALL processed foods and sweetened soft drinks. This is no time to bombard your body with processed foods, fried foods, high-fructose corn syrup, refined sugars or chemical additives.

Sore The Next Day?

Delayed onset muscle soreness, commonly referred to as DOMS, is characterized by the residual soreness felt in the muscles hours after exercise and can even last up to a few days. DOMS is caused by strenuous exercise and performing exercises that the body is not accustomed to yet. Dynamic and static stretching, soft tissue mobilization such as massage and foam rolling, and general warmups before exercise has shown to attenuate the sensation of DOMS and provide a temporary effect of pain relief and tolerance in order to prepare the body for upcoming activities. Ask your healthcare professional if you have any questions or concerns about DOMS!

Travelling with Prescription Meds

If you take prescription medications, be sure to have enough on hand when you travel, plus a bit extra in case of delays. If you’re travelling by air, don’t pack your medications in your check-in luggage – luggage may get delayed or lost. Ideally, don’t pack prescription medications in luggage at all, no matter how you travel, in case your bags get lost or stolen. Be sure to keep the medications in their original containers, especially if you’re crossing borders, to avoid medication mix-ups and to show border inspectors what medications you’re carrying with you in case you’re questioned about them.

You Are Not Overweight, You Are Overacidic

Are you looking to achieve optimal health, all while shedding excess weight? Over-acidification of the body sets in motion a destructive cycle of imbalance, disease and obesity. Too much acid in the body robs the blood of oxygen, and without oxygen, the metabolism slows. Food digests more slowly, inducing weight gain and sluggishness, and worse still, causing the food to ferment. It is vital to balance your pH level by reducing your acidity through drinking good pure water, eating natural foods, and eliminating highly processed high sugar content foods.
