5 Favorite Health Tips

Shortly after the birth of my last baby, I decided it was time to get serious about taking better care of my body. So far I’ve lost 65 lbs, and it hasn’t been easy, but it has been soooooo worth it! Besides just losing weight and feeling fit, I’ve made small simple changes over the past year that have totally transformed my health and my families health. Here are 5 simple tips you can make this week that will make a huge impact in your home and life.

5 Simple Health Tips

1 . Take a Probiotic

You would be surprised how many people across the world have health issues related to their digestive system. It’s a sensitive and private subject for some, but one that shouldn’t go untreated. Probiotics are often called “good bacteria” because they help keep your gut healthy. Cleaning your system daily will help you feel healthier, you’ll have more energy and remove toxins from your body.

2. Get Your Daily Dose of Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3 is essential! This is often called the “sunshine vitamin,” and offers a multitude of benefits, including supporting healthy heart function, immune and bone health, and facilitates health cell development.  Did you know Vitamin D3 also helps aid in calcium absorption for maintaining strong bones and teeth? This can help with osteoporosis {a leading disease in women} and even boost your mood!

3. Use a Tongue Scraper/Cleaner

Did you know your mouth is quite possibly the dirtiest part of your body? Scary, right?! Keeping your mouth clean can aid in overall health, including the prevention of gum disease which can affect your blood stream and heart. Using a tongue scraper/cleaner daily improves oral hygiene, removes bad bacteria from your body and can improve halitosis up to 90%. You can purchase a tongue scraper for under $5. (HERE is the one I use from Amazon.) I use mine every time I brush and it makes a huge difference in my health!

4. Go Natural

Going natural can mean all sorts of things, but in today’s times it is commonly referred to cutting out toxic, chemical based products and switching for natural substitutes. We have done this slowly but surely over the past two years and it has done WONDERS for our family. We use natural supplements, natural cleaners, and we eat natural/organic foods as much as possible. Make these simple changes over time and pretty soon you will be “all natural” too!

5. Drink More Purified Water

You’ve probably heard the term, drink eight, 8 ounce glasses of water daily. Yes, this is true, but make sure your water doesn’t contain lead and other harmful contaminants while doing so. Also, did you know that bottled/packages water isn’t always safe? A lot of these waters are not regulated and can contain harmful metals and other contaminates that are not safe for you and your family. Does your water contain fluoride? This is another harmful containment. Using a water filtration system that removes 99.9% of all containments INCLUDING LEAD is what you need. This is especially important during times of emergency. We use these filters and have them in our emergency preparedness kit.
