Most of us go through ups and downs both emotionally and physically. Financial stress and Family stress are probably the most common factors. As my chiropractor says "There are 3 types of stress: Chemical, Physical and Emotional."
The Physical Stress I can try to manage with regular workouts, chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy. When I say "regular" workouts I mean 3-4 times per week and incorporating cardio and weight lifting each time. I'm not a big fan of some of the "fad" kill-yourself workouts mostly because I see the harmful effects of improper training when patients come into the office.
The Emotional Stress can be tough but there is one thing you can try to remember: "You cannot control the people around you but you can try to control the way you react to them." A wise women once said that to me and I have repeated it to myself many times.
The Chemical stress is a whole world in itself. Proper nutrition and supplements are important. I talked about the Nutrition of SPROUTS last week and that was a very popular article.
Hydration is also very important. Drinking adequate amounts of water every day can decrease your risk of weight gain, kidney stones and toxicity. Not drinking enough water can also decrease digestive efficiency and organ function.
Do you drink filtered water, from the tap or bottled water? Could your water be making you sick?
From Arsenic-Laced Fluoride in Your drinking Water:
Fertilizer Industry’s Arsenic-Tainted Fluoride Laced into Drinking Water of 150 Million AmericansThink drinking bottled water is the solution? Studies show that bottled water is simply expensive tap water.
Toxicity can be a slow, silent killer.
The most common signs of toxicity are:
- Irregular bowel movements
- Increased "belly" or spare tire
- Constant bloating
- Excessive sweating
- Decreased libido
- Reduced Metal Clarity
