Guest Contribution : The Way to a healthy Lifestyle

Research is showing that the way to good health is lifestyle. Making simple changes to diet, exercise and stress management is all you need to turn knowledge to results. The following are tips to healthy lifestyle:

Think positive and focus on gratitude- positive attitude will help you build healthier immune system and boost your overall health. It is true that our body believes on what you think and thus it is credible to focus on positive undertaking.

Eat more vegetables– put more interest on eating vegetables at least five times a day. A diet high in vegetables is associated with reduced risk of developing cancers of the lung, colon, breast, cervix, stomach, pancreas and ovary. Put more interest on eating foods such as cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, grapes and leaf greens.

Set a five meal ideal– it is credible if you mind what, when and what to eat to help you balance your metabolism and energy levels. This ideal situation will help you manage your weight, keep you cool and maintain your focus towards avoiding cravings.

Exercise daily– investing in daily exercises will help you reduce all biomarkers of aging such as impaired eyesight, blood pressure, lean muscles and bone density. Regular exercise will improve bone density, lower cholesterol and help you live longer. Setting aside ten minutes daily for exercise will help you make difference in your life. You can achieve this through dancing in your room, walking to the park with kids, bike to work and going for a hike.

Get enough night sleep– it is credible if you have trouble sleeping to exercise relaxation technique such as meditation, yoga and eating small bedtime snacks. Eating light meal will help your body and mind to switch to sleep mode. You can also darken your room to help remove stress associated with sleep.

Use foods over supplements– supplements are not a substitute for a good diet. Avoid supplements because they are associated with diseases such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes.

Ensure satisfaction– eating and physical activities are fun and should stimulate your sensory experiences. When engaging for physical activity, aim at pleasure and not pain. Pay attention to nutritional value of foods you eat as well as satisfaction, relaxation, tension and relieve fatigue. Be considerate to your eating behaviour that is not motivated by hungry and considering fullness when hungry.

Give yourself a break– make sure that you give your body enough rest to help restore elements of well being. Give yourself enthusiasm and avoid depression that will increase stress hormones. Breaking up will help you introduce various training modes that can help you avoid overtraining.

HEALTHY AND HAPPYThink small– it is credible to start from small while taking plenty of water. Ensure that you take meals some hours before you retire to sleep.

Keep good company– doing all right things is simply as a result of having personal relationships with people who have healthy habits. Getting your family and friends involved in health living will help you plan on health lifestyle and healthier meals.

Choose water as a drink– water is the best liquid to quench your thirst. Prefer taking whole fruits rather than juices. Refrain from taking fresh milk as a drink to relieve thirsty.

Eat fewer snacks– select healthier alternatives that will help address your nutritional needs. Select snacks that are based on fruit and vegetables with reduced fat dairy products and whole grains. Avoid snacks that are high in sugar and saturated fats.

Detox yourself– eat diet heavy in fibre and also try taking substances that will help your body detox.

Skin – Body – Health – Hair Renewal

SKIN BODY HEALTH RENEWALBy now, I am sure you have come across the growing chain of Skin Renewal clinics, which have further branched into Body Renewal, Health Renewal and Hair Renewal. A complete medical with a touch of aesthetician approach to being the best possible you that you can. After attending the launch of the new IV infusions administered by a registered nurse on offer from Health Renewal, Victor explained how the expansion from Skin Renewal to incorporate Body, Health and Hair solutions came about. He explained it simply with a metaphor saying that our skin is like a dashboard of the car and when the lights come up on the dashboard, it doesn’t mean that there is something wrong with the light that is now shining, rather that there is something wrong with the car. Skin Renewal realised there is a gap in the market for available solutions to underlying conditions which reflect on the surface of the skin, which can only be zapped by a laser so many times which makes them disappear before they come back due the underlying cause of the problem being left untreated.

Instead of being treating for multiple conditions with different specialists the medical assistance offered from the Health Renewal clinics ensures that there will be constant communications from doctors to doctors and nurses to nurses which will be much like the communication within a hospital environment but these doctors work hand in hand together and understand each other. The purpose of Health Renewal and all of their offerings is simple, to treat causes – not symptoms. Health Renewal is not to make sick people better but rather to make you as well as you can be.

IVAbout IV Infusions on Offer at Health Renewal

Intravenous therapy, otherwise known as IV therapy is the infusion of liquid substances directly into a vein. Intravenous means “within vein”. This sounds a lot scarier than it really is simply because it involves needles and when I first read about it I thought I’d spent enough time in a hospitals with drips in my arm to even consider having my own IV infusions.  The liquid substances being directly infused into your blood system are vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants in order to correct intracellular nutrient deficiencies and help various health concerns. It is a more effective why than popping a vitamin because oral consumption of vitamins and minerals is affected and limited by factors which include the condition of the gut as well as stress and anxiety levels. After watching Victor be the test dummy and demonstrate while having the nurse how simple and easy this procedure was, I felt a lot more at ease and thought to myself, well I could do that, if it would make me feel better. Truth is, at Health Renewal, an IV Infusion is almost guaranteed to do so. Health Renewal customise the infusions to a personal note in order to combine the correct cocktail of ingredients just for you. There is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to IV infusions.

There are various cocktails of infusions available at Health Renewal including but not limited to:

  • Skin Brightening Infusion Cocktail
  • Health/Hair/Skin/ Nails Infusion Cocktail
  • Chronic Stress Infusion Cocktail
  • Detoxification/ Anti Oxidation/ Organ Cleansing Infusion Cocktail
  • Hangover Recovery Infusion cocktail
  • Anti Viral Infusion Cocktail
  • Super Immune Infusion Cocktail
  • Athletes Performance/ Vitality Cocktail
  • Healthy Heart Cocktail Infusion

Dr. Fred at the event explained that you are what you eat but you are also what you digest and absorb. If the digestive system is absorbing impurities eventually your system will hold onto things ad eventually it clogs up your system. Your stomach and gut are critical as they are linked to every part of your body. Probiotics are essential for everyone but the capsules are not 100% successful. A probiotic is a complex science and they can get destroyed so easily. This is why IV infusions internationally have had such acclaim in terms of wellness benefits and the trends are gradually increasing on our shores because we cannot rely so heavily on our guts when there are other crucial influencing factors in ensuring we are receiving the correct nutrients 100% of the time.

Health Renewal boasts that the average age of their customers has shifted from over 40 years old to early 30’s…. This means that the consumer need for medical guidance for everything relating to general well being has shifted to be prioritised a younger age, which is the poster child for prevention being better than a cure.

If you’re intrigued, I dare you to find out more and visit a Health Renewal near you for you to start on your investment to prolonged wellness.

My Forever Detox Experience

43 days ago on 3 Februay 2014, I embarked on a personal journey, a journey of promised health and happiness. This journey is called the Forever Clean 9 Detox and simply as the name suggests, is a 9 day detox.

Previously in my life, detox has been a dirty word as I have never strived for the fads of diets and detoxes that are ever prevalent and then die out, however this programme seems to be a bit different and this one I embraced. Was I toxic before doing this detox? Probably. I didn’t feel terrible but I wasn’t happy with a number of things, none which I feel the need to list here as I believe everyone who decides to undertake a detox would have a number of reasons, some being simple like “well, this won’t do me any harm” and others more deep and personal like losing weight, addressing illnesses and maybe a path to a better healthier life going forward. untitled1

My mother told me about this, as a friend in the UK is an agent and sells these products from Forever Living. I was sceptical at first as I’ve come across the pyramid-scheme-world before and been very hesitant however I am not interested in joining the business from that perspective and I have been advised that Forever Living is different than others, no names mentioned and I am only interested in the actual products they have on offer. On top of the fact that this product sort of sounded like it was almost-t00-good-to-be-true I did my research and Forever Living have received a load of good press internationally and they have a few different local distribution centres in South Africa as well as a number of countries world wide. 216_large

So, to summarise, the Clean 9 detox is a nutritional cleansing programme, in other words you watch what you put in your gob but it also incorporates a certain amount of exercise, (how much depends on your current level of fitness), an array of supplements, supplement milk shakes and of course the Forever Living signature product, Aloe Vera gel which you drink.

The first two days are certainly the hardest as they involve no munching, just drinking… a lot of drinking. Starting the day off with supplements, some aloe gel and some exercise with lots of water which is followed by mid morning “snack” of bee pollen supplements and lots of water – at lunch time you have even more supplements, aloe gel and a meal replacement shake that comes in chocolate or vanilla and then for dinner more supplements, aloe gel and another meal replacement shake which is all rounded off before going to bed by having some more aloe gel and water.
