The new scientific field of study called Epigenetics (above the genes) tells us that only 2-10% of all illnesses have a truly genetic basis. The majority of human illnesses result from the interaction between our genes and the environment, which gives us much more control over our health and future destiny. Food, stress, sleep, and lifestyle all affect our genetic expression, requiring us to take responsibility for our actions rather than blaming genetic heritage for our physical ills.
MOVE FOR A HEALTHY LYMPH SYSTEM
The lymph system, like the bloodstream, carries larger sized nutrients throughout the body, and helps remove waste products. However, there is no “heart” to pump lymph, it moves only when the body moves or “exercises”. Without movement, lymph stagnates, and the body becomes poisoned. So get that lymph moving for a healthy body!
STOP PROCESSED FOODS
Generally the more processed a food is, the less vitamins, minerals and nutrients it contains, and the more chemicals, toxins, pesticides and preservatives it contains. To maximize nutrition, eat most of your foods in the whole, raw, and preferably organic state.
DO YOU POOP ENOUGH?
Work to decrease your bowel transit time (time between bowel movements). A healthy bowel moves after every large meal, a minimum of once a day. The longer food remains in the digestive tract, the greater the chance of fermentation, putrification, and toxin absorption. Consume natural, whole, raw, high fiber, organic fruits and veggies to keep things moving.
LUBE JOINTS TO PREVENT INJURY
Rotating and stretching every joint daily keeps them lubricated, and helps prevent injury. Start at one end of your body and work your way to the other end stretching and moving every joint, especially before exercising or when under stress.
