So far we’ve covered how you can affect your health with the foods and supplements you put in your body, but there are other important considerations when you want to live your healthiest life.
Pay attention to these very basic, yet important environmental components:
The water you use. Use reverse osmosis filter for drinking water or a charcoal filter for the whole household. These types of filters help avoid chemicals and contaminants.
The air you breathe. Use HEPA filters for small rooms, avoid air fresheners and gas exhaust. Also avoid insecticides, pesticides or any other type of chemicals that are out there.
Many studies have proven the mind-body connection. This doesn’t mean you can think your disease away, but it means it’s important to use stress-reduction techniques to help your body be its healthiest.
Some great stress reduction methods that will improve your mind-body connection include:
- Relaxation techniques
- Breathing work
- Acupuncture or a good massage can also strengthen the mind-body connection
Find something that will work for you to reduce stress and strengthen your mind-body connection.
Consider genetic testing. Sure, we all respond to environment factors differently and probably based on our genetic ‘’makeup’’ but luckily these days thanks to multiple genetic tests we do know a lot about our genes and ways to mitigate the possible danger by supplements or diet changes.
In short, there are a myriad of factors that influence our health and our kids’ health even before they are born but there also so many ways we can change.
I encourage you to start asking yourself what you can do to improve your health every day and I guarantee you will be seeing results in no time.
