There are many things we can do to stay healthy and keep our immune systems in tip-top shape. I am a firm believer in "you are what you eat"! Eating healthy foods and rejecting processed, junk and fast food can go a long way in disease prevention. I can't help but wonder what would happen to the cancer epidemic if some of the money they are collecting went to teaching children and adults how to eat a healthy diet. Prevention goes a long way in "The Race for the Cure". I believe much of the chronic disease that we have seen advance in the last 50 years is due to our current food production system.
By eating real food (whole fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds that have not been processed), grass-fed, pasture raised meat and dairy (that is not from the deplorable factory farms), and limiting sugar, preservatives and chemicals we can live a much more healthy life. Limiting stress (not becoming fearful every time the headlines say to), and getting some exercise will also help to keep you disease free. Look at what is in the household cleaners that you buy and the make-up, lotions and potions that you put on your skin. Also take a good look at your thoughts.....are they always negative, complaining and full of discontent? Do you get enough sleep? All of these things can be changed.
So treat yourself and your body to a massage and a Chiropractic adjustment. Join a Yoga or Tai Chi class and eat a big salad with lots of fresh vegetables. Go to bed earlier and leave your cellphone in another room. Start taking a good multi-vitamin, some antioxidants and probiotics. Think positive thoughts and never talk or think bad about yourself. We are all just doing the best we can to live each day to the best of our ability! Love yourself just the way you are.
