7 A Day

When I was a kid my mom used to give us ” one a day” vitamins to keep us healthy. Not quite sure why we ever believed that taking a small multi vitamin/mineral pill once a day would keep us in “optimal health” when there is really so much more to good health than that. So I thought I would offer up ” 7 a day” – no not a pill but since I prescribe to the common sense approach to health – here are 7 wonderful common sense RIGHT things to do for your body’s health each day…….

1. Think Right – Stress and toxins accumulate in the body from many sources, poor food choices can damage or destroy neurons……. make healthy food choices – for your memory and your ability to think clearly.

2. Eat Right – Organic unprocessed foods. NINE – yes I said nine, or more servings of fresh fruit and veggies each day…. this will alkaline the system.

3. Drink Right – Clean water cleanses our bodies and is a primer for nearly every biological process. Divide your body weight by 2 and this is the number of ounces of water YOUR body requires each day. Add 4 oz for every 15 min of intense exercise.

4. Move Right – Life is motion . 30 min of exercise DAILY = feel better and live longer.

5. Talk Right – Positive speech has a positive effect on you and those around you. Lighten up and laugh more and be good to yourself.

6. Poop Right – yes I said that……. it takes 18-22 hours for your digestive cycle to complete. Your body wants to eliminate toxins in a timely fashion.

7. Sleep Right – a good mattress, the right pillows, quiet, dark , cool room. Relax for at least one hour before going to bed. Calming herbs or meditation can help those with sleep challenges.

To Your Best Health,
