Do you take supplements?

 

Do you need to take them?

 

Which ones should you take?

 

I’ve edited down the best supplements into four main ones that you should consider at any age, but especially if you’re over 45.

 

All four of them are listed because most people are simply not eating enough foods that contain these critical nutrients.

Getting off the Sugar

This is one of the most frequently asked questions I am asked. How can I stop eating sugar?

Many people think because they are not eating “candy” that they are not eating sugar. That’s not TRUE. Sugar lurks everywhere and we are eating & drinking way too much of it.

Besides the obvious – sugar and anything ending in “ose” or artificial sweeteners or anything sweet (expect stevia – which is an herb). You’re an intelligent person – you know where sugar is!!! Breads, pasta, juice, pop, alcohol, pastries, muffins, packaged & prepared foods, oatmeal, chips, potatoes, some fruits and veggies, condiments and on & on (just in case I left any out).

New Year Detox Part Two – Drinking, Stress, Shut Eye and Supplements

It’s a new year and for many that means a renewed focus and interest in self-improvement, including detoxing from the recent holidays.  While wanting to be in good health year round is your priority…we all need a reminder and a tune up from time to time and the New Year is a great reminder to detox our cells and improve our health…because as you know – without good health, we are nothing.

Here are a few more strategies for your short and long term health…

 

water_glassHydration — Plain and simple, we need water!!! Start your day with a big glass of water and follow it up with a detox lemonade (water and lemon)

Many minor maladies such as headaches, fatigue, muscle cramps and even depression can be related to your hydration levels.  WOW – water is powerful!!

 

Keep your body hydrated with green  and herbal teas, water, coconut water but leave the nasties out of your body like alcohol, caffeine, sodas, store bought juices…you don’t need your cells floating around in artificial colours, flavours, preservatives…keep your choices CLEAN.

Stress – Breath, chill, take a moment, be in the moment, relax, step back & laugh. Stress can cause a buildup of toxins in your body which can be very dangerous. Even minor daily activities like commuting, finances and relationships cause us stress.  Seek out ways to reduce stress in your life and take counter measures to reduce them.

Sleep – Yup, you’ve got to get it.  Your body heals, your brain detoxes and you awake renewed and replenished.  The Busy Mama Detox offers many suggestions that can help you improve this important area of your life.

Supplements – I was never a big fan of supplements but I do believe they have a place in our modern day diet now.  Consuming a healthy diet may feel like a full time job and the food industry does not help us with all their inventions, so our cells need HELP.

 

It can be challenging to come by all the necessary nutrients, vitamins and minerals our bodies require, and supplements are a great way to do just that — supplement our intake.

Here are some supplements that are discussed in the Busy Mama Detox.  You are to use what you feel is necessary for this time of your life.

 

These will ensure that you are killing off parasites, yeast & pathogens.

ü  Body brush (I use dry brushes from Living Libations which I highly recommend and the Lymph+Tonic lymphatic drops)

ü  Probiotics – great for the bowel & intestinal flora

ü  Oil of oregano – antimicrobial
