Steps Towards Amazing Health

We all hear about diets-Miami Beach, Cookie, Atkins, Low Sugar. But diets are diets and no matter how many of them we attempt, the bottom line is that good health comes from good eating habits. Consistent, healthy, organic habits. These habits will stay with you for a lifetime, whereas diets are fads. The come and go and your weight will fluctuate. Here are some guidelines for a healthy lifestyle.
1.You are what you drink. Water, water, water. Our bodies are made up of 70% water. Our blood is made up of 90% water. Our bodies cannot survive without water. It is essential for cellular health,hydrating our skin, preventing dehydration & preventing a whole host of symptoms that can occur if we dont drink enough.
2.pH Balance.We can't say it enough. "Alkaline bodies are healthy bodies." The more alkaline a person is, the less inflammation,the less disease, & the more energy & productive our bodies will fuction. Eating lemons,limes, & grapefruits are low is sugar & have an alkalizing effect when metabolized in the body. Look it up for yourself.
3.Have a positive attitude. Attitude is everything! Have you ever heard of the self-fulfilling prophecy? What we believe will happen may happen. In order for the body to stay in a healthy state of balance, including a healthy weight, you must find the mental, emotional,& spiritual calm, as well as physical stability.  Bottom line: uncontrolled negative thoughts and emotions will often trigger unhealthy eating in a variety of forms, aimed at comforting and consoling oneself.
4. Eat good fats & foods. Avocados are a great source of monounsaturated fats as well as nuts. They are nutrient-dense, have more potassium than bananas, and have one of the richest sources of lutein (protects again cancer & eye disease). Coconuts are a wonderful source of good saturated fats. The good fats in whole natural coconuts may help lower cholesterol & prevent arteriosclerosis. Fresh fish is rich in omega-3s and while you aren't supposed to eat it everyday, it's important to eat. Salmon,trout,tuna,striped bass & red snapper are the best to eat. Green vegetables provide the body with vitamins,minerals,fiber & micronutrients. Grains like Quinoa & raw buckwheat are high in protein & are a great alternative to a completx starch.
5. Supplements. The right type can be an important part of any weight loss program. Many foods are processed in ways that deplete them of more of their nutritional value. When cooked, they lose more nutrients. The only way to be sure you are getting all the vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients you need is with supplements. Finding the right type of supplements are a different story. Drinking your greens is almost better than eating them. Quantum Premier Greens Mix is a concentrated green powder that  can be added to any drink or smoothie. Probioticss are also a very important part of any lifestyle, as are digestive enzymes.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is easy to achieve with the proper tools. These are only an example, but Talya Meldy and Clear Way Health can help you achieve a healthy lifestyle through nutritional counseling, supplemental muscle testing, and colonics.  Please contact Clear Way Health at 310-391-2017 or at info@clearwayhealth.com for more information
