http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-images-happy-new-year-young-man-handstand-beach-image58042964

 

That’s right folks. 2016 is all about me!
I will be investing in myself and becoming a better person physically, mentally and spiritually.
I’m not a guy that’s big on resolutions so this will be my one big all encompassing “sort of” resolution.
That’s what it’s all about right? We all strive to be better in the coming year.
So I challenge you to be selfish too! Look inside yourself and take care of yourself.
Be present! Be Happy! Be Loving! Be Kind! Be Healthy!
Just Be!
Positive Change comes when we learn to love ourselves first.
So this year, be selfish! Make it about you and watch your world change for the better.

Happy New Year!

Is It Time To Up Your Salt Game?

hseasalt2

We’ve all heard that it’s important to watch our intake of sodium. But, what if I told you there’s a salt out there that’s healthy for you! It provides you with 80+ minerals and elements, plus a variety of healthy benefits that will have you asking to please pass the salt with every meal.

So, have you heard of Himalayan Sea Salt? Yeah, it’s that slightly expensive pink sea salt the you see at the grocery store with all of the other salts. Why should I pay several dollars for a fancy pink salt when I can get a box of Morton’s for about .50 cents?

Here’s a hint: That cheap table salt you’re rock’in ain’t so good. Why? Table salt is refined and stripped of all of it’s minerals. It’s also chemically treated and the iodine, one of the main benefits of salt is manufactured instead of natural. That’s right, it’s processed!

Here are some incredible benefits of Himalayan Sea Salt:

  • Increases Hydration-It regulates water both inside and outside of cells.
  • Detoxes the body of heavy metals.
  • Lowers blood pressure.
  • It balances the body’s PH.
  • It regulates healthy sleep patterns.
  • Supports anti-aging.
  • I supports your libido- Woot! :)

Uses of Himalayan Sea Salt:

  • Cooking-Toss that table salt and bring out amazing flavors with your pink salt.
  • Bathing-Throw it in your bath for detoxification.
  • Great for decoration-Check out Himalayan Salt Lamps and how they bring energy to a room!

Well, there you have it. Salt is good for you if you do it right.

Is Your Diet Fanning the Flames of Inflammation?

is-your-diet-causing-inflammation

Ok, so we’ve all heard of the major diseases in our society; Cancer, Heart Disease, Obesity, Diabetes, Arthritis. These diseases not only wreak havoc on our bodies, but they also are a huge burden on our healthcare system and our society. So what if I told you that there is a condition that links them all! You bet there is, and that condition is inflammation.

Actually inflammation is a reaction to protect the body from destructive elements that have been introduced into our systems. So what does this have to do with our diet? Well, the food that we put into our bodies can often be that destructive element.

Here are 5 foods that we can eliminate to reduce inflammation and disease.

Sugar-

sugarOh my sweet sweet devilish friend. How you tempt me. Sugar is one of the most addictive substances on the planet. It is found in literally everything we eat and is a major cause of inflammation. I’m not saying stop sugar all together, but be mindful of where it’s coming from and cut back. Feel a craving for sweets coming on? Grab a piece of fruit.

 

 

Wheat-

wheatHighly inflammatory especially in processed form. Guess what happens when you consume processed wheat? It turns to sugar!(see above) Also most wheat is now genetically modified(GMO) and contains gluten which is starting to be linked to many serious health conditions. As an alternative choose grains like Quinoa, Buckwheat or Millet.

 

 

Meat-

meatI’m not saying that you have to go vegetarian or vegan. Just cut back a little. Don’t make meat the center piece of your meal. Surround your meal with healthy vegetables and grains. Also, be mindful of your meat purchases. Go organic and hormone and antibiotic free. Clean, ethically raised meat is a lot healthier.

 

 

Dairy-

dairyToday’s dairy products are packed with sugar, antibiotics and hormones. All contribute to inflammation. Dairy doesn’t have a lot of nutritional value so why consume it? Except for cheese of course. Have a little bit of cheese. Look for raw cheese in your local grocery store.

 

 

Alcohol-

alcoholLove my handcrafted beer, but it doesn’t always love me. Not much to be said here. We all know about the challenges with alcohol. Remember alcohol is a cousin of our evil friend sugar. If you drink, then practice moderation and reduce your inflammation.

This is only the tip of the iceberg. By reducing inflammation in our bodies as we age, we can go from being sick and old to healthy and happy, and the easiest way to do this is through nutrition. I’m not asking you to make drastic changes, just conscious changes. Take control and become a happier and healthier you!

Namaste Y’all!
