Optimal Wellness depends on a nourishing diet, a healthy lifestyle and a balanced mind. But how can we achieve this? Usually when we hear the word “natural” we think about wellness or inner peace. Our body is a “natural machine” and if we want it to work, we must provide natural foods to promote wellness.
This is a difficult habit to get in as we are surrounded by enormous amounts of unhealthy, processed foods and sugary beverages, which makes it difficult to stay healthy. My passion is to teach people that, despite of living in an unhealthy environment, you are able to improve your health with simple habits that are easy to implement.
Natural means health. Adding natural treats into your diet may promote good health and decrease the risk of developing long-term health issues.
1. Drink Green Tea
The antioxidants and catechins present in green tea help in increasing the metabolic production of heat in your body and will work wonders if you drink a cup before you work out. You can have green tea either iced or hot.
Ginger is a wonderful root which can help you to a clear chest and nose. It has volatile oils. An inch of ginger can be boiled with two cups of water for ten minutes and strained after with a pinch of cayenne pepper added to it.
3. Bite on some Bitters
When eating too much sugar, you can diminish the damage with some bitter veggies like radicchio, olives and endive. However, sugar being very toxic to your body and causing inflammation, I highly recommend to skip it. Check out my Sugar free starter kit to get some tips on how to.
4. Eat Broccoli
Including broccoli to your bowl of salad can help with lowering periodontal disease. They are a rich source of calcium and vitamin C and also help with making your gums strong and healthy and are one of the super foods for overall healthy aging.
5. Chew on tasty Fennel
Fennel seeds are tasty and work like mouth fresheners. Besides they are also known to be carminative, something that helps in relieving gas and indigestion. After every mean chew half a teaspoon of fennel seeds and swallow them.
