There are some simple changes that you can make, some simple actions that make a big difference in your health. Basic nutrition is a good start. Are you conscious of the food choices you make? Do you maintain an awareness of the foods you put in your body? Do you wash your fruits and vegetables before you eat them? Even prewashed foods can contain bacteria. The sealed plastic package makes a perfect environment for harmful bacteria to grow.
Do you choose local fruits and vegetables over long dfistance sources? The longer the distance that produce travels the less nutrition remains. Foods that are shipped over longer distances have to be picked before they are fully ripe. The nutritional quality is compromised by this practice. The handling, shipping, and storage practices further compromise the nutritional quality. Local produce generally contains less pesticide residue, has been handled less, and has been picked when ripe and more recently brought to your market. The closer that you can purchase your food to the source where it was grown the better the nutrition you provide for your body.
Do you hydrate your body with fresh, clean water that has a balance of trace minerals that your body needs for optimal health? Tap water sources often contain more additives and pollutants than we would want for our healthy bodies. Bottled water may be spring water, distilled water, or tap water. The label isn't always clear. Water that has had the trace minerals restored provides the optimum environment for your body to resist disease and repair your cells to healthy function. Alkaline water (water with trace minerals) diminishes the inflammatory response of the body. Cancer cells cannot survive in an alkaline environment. The foods we eat often place our bodies in an acidic state. Sugars, meats, fruits all create an acidic environment. Countering that with fresh water filled with trace minerals allows the body an easy way to adjust itself to a healthy neutral ph.
The body is designed for balance. If we do not provide the body with minerals from an external source, it will automatically leach those minerals from the only other source available: bones and muscles. This can be the beginning of many chronic inflammatory diseases.
An easy and simple way to give yourself those trace minerals is to use the Xooma product X2O. One sachet in 20 ounces of water is a good first step to balancing those minerals that your body needs for health. The minerals facilitate better hydration by transporting the water molecule through the cell wall. Both the water and the minerals are needed for healthy cell function. It's a small step with big results for a healthy balance in your body.
So take a small step today. Do something different today that moves your body one step closer to your best health ever!
