Happy Happy New Year! While I’m not one to put too much credence into “New Years Resolutions” because I believe the small “permanent changes you make are more effective. That said, it is not beneath me to use this opportunity to shamelessly promote healthy habits under the guise of “New Years Resolutions That Will Make You Beautiful, Smart, Rich and Happy”.
All kidding aside, chances are you’ll find a several things here, which you’ll find easy to incorporate into your life such as, avoiding hidden toxins, purging pollutants and eating healthy.
1. All non-stick cookware is toxic. It will kill any birds in the house if it is overheated. I have sad first-hand knowledge of this. If you use non-stick cookware, throw it out and return to stainless steel or cast iron. Never heat food in plastic; many dangerous chemicals are leached into your food this way.
2. Drink 1 or 2 quarts of pure water daily (free from chlorine and fluoride because they are both highly toxic). If you have city water it probably contains both and it is absorbed through the skin as well as orally so dry yourself quickly after showers or baths and filter what you drink.
3. Cleanse and protect the liver by taking herbs such as dandelion root, parsley root, gentian, burdock and milk thistle or blessed thistle. An Excellent tincture containing the ideal combination of these herbs can be found at The Healing Path website. It is called Hepa-Health
4. Lymphatic Stimulation - Sipping hot water such as herbal tea stimulates the lymphatic system and helps the body to eliminate germs disease pathogens and toxins from the body. I like this simple ginger tea: Steep thin slices of fresh ginger in a Thermos of hot water and sip throughout the day. Add a little honey or stevia if you want a little sweetness. Drink ½ cup every hour if you are feel you are coming down with a cold or flu, and chances are that you will avoid becoming ill.
5. Sweat - Exercise, do Yoga, jump-rope or hop on a trampoline so your body can eliminate wastes through perspiration. If you are unable to perform the physical activities needed to sweat you can soak in a mineral salt bath to induce perspiration. Here’s a very effective & inexpensive recipe and instructions for “Detox Bath Salts”.
Basic Salt Soak Bath Formula
Minerals and salts make the bath water feel silky and leave your skin cleansed and soft.
1 cup sea salts
2 cups baking soda
1 cup Epsom salts
Use ¼ cup per bath or 2 Tblsp for a footbath.
6. Use natural skin care products. Whatever you put on your skin goes into your bloodstream without the benefit of being filtered through the liver. After a shower apply olive or sesame oil to your whole body. NOT MINERAL OIL! I make a Moisture Lotion that is made from all “food grade” ingredients. Again, it can be found at The Healing Path website.
7. Eat plenty of fiber, including organically grown fresh fruits and vegetables. Beets, radishes, artichokes, cabbage, broccoli, spirulina, chlorella, and seaweed are excellent detoxifying foods. You’ll need at least 25 grams of dietary fiber per day to reduce cholesterol and prevent intestinal diseases such as diverticulitis and colitis.
8. Eat more fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, kimchi, naturally fermented, non-pasteurized apple cider & fresh sauerkraut. They are natural probiotics that improve digestion and reduce or eliminate acid reflux.
9. Take at least 1000 mg vitamin C to help the body produce glutathione, which helps detox the liver, boosts the immune system and is an antioxidant. Also take at least 2000 IU of vitamin D daily. Most of us are deficient in vitamin D because we aren’t outside receiving healthy sunlight as much as our ancestors did.
10. Transform stress by emphasizing positive emotions and eliminating negative mental chatter. Breathe deep and slow to allow oxygen to circulate more completely through your system.
If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it! Wishing you a Happy Healthy and Prosperous New Year!
Love and Light, Lori Jacobs
