Practiced regularly, these tips can help prevent many of the negative effects of aging.
Exhaling relieves stress, clears the lungs, increases mental focus and contracts the abdomen. You can actually tone the belly by learning to breathe properly.
Drink in Excess
Water rinses cell wastes, blood poisons and environmental toxins from the body. Try flat mineral water, or organic herbal teas. For an electrolyte boost, try wheat grass juice.
Try eating 5 small (but balanced) meals a day to keep your metabolic fire stoked:
- Eat a light breakfast — Try a protein smoothie, a handful of soaked almonds, and fruit
- Lunchtime is when our digestive fire is at its peak. This can be a heavier meal
- Dinner should be light, with few carbohydrates — i.e. sugar, bread, etc.
Unlike “bad-fats” (found in processed foods) fats in avocados and other vegetables, are good sources of phyto-nutrients, and essential fatty acids, which protect against heart disease and cancer. Try evening primrose oil, fish oils, or flax seed oil.
Calcium is Important for More than Just Strong Bones
Take calcium with magnesium in a 1 to 1 ratio daily. Adding 500 — 3,000 mgs of ester C with rose hips promotes absorption, and repairs cell damage. Also, adding magnesium can assist you in falling asleep and waking refreshed.
Loosen your Shoulders, Free your Hips, Stand on your Head
3 stretches in 3 minutes can help eliminate postural imbalances:
- Serenity Pose
- Standing Forward Bend
- Beginners head stand (Dolphin Pose or Half-Dog Pose)
Seek a moderately challenging routine:
- 30% strength
- 30% aerobic (low to medium impact)
- 30% stretching
- 10% relaxation
Allow for sufficient rest between workouts to help the body recuperate
Peeling, burning, and abrading the skin refines its appearance, but it can also weaken the skin’s immunity. Too much exfoliating can eventually kill skin cells. Ask your skin care professional for gentle peels, and feed facial skin with live cell extracts, and essential oils.
The Power of Minerals
A proper diet, including minerals, strengthens a cell’s ability to fight cancer, viruses and bacteria. Consider taking liquid minerals daily if needed.
Sugar is Toxic
1 tsp of refined white sugar can destroy all of the vitamin B12 you ingest in a week. Without B12, the myelin sheath (which protects nerve endings) starts to erode. Consider adding a B complex vitamin to your daily vitamin and mineral regimen.
