I hear from many of you. Every day. I read about your struggles and challenges and take everything into consideration when creating content for you. This time of year, there are so many articles about trends for the new year or ways to rock your new year’s resolutions. That kind of article isn’t good enough for you. I wanted to create a different kind of wellness trend article. One that hits on your top challenges and solutions to help with your biggest health struggles. Are you ready?
Begin and End with Gratitude
I will begin and end my day with gratitude.
Gratitude is the most beautiful gift you can give to yourself and others. It is scientifically proven that gratitude and negative emotions cannot live in the same space in your mind. How cool is that? It is also scientifically proven that gratitude helps to build fortitude. Yes. and Yes. Jump in… the water feels great.
Drainage is King
I will make my body a drainage machine!
Drainage is hotter than the microbiome. It’s rarely talked about, but the most important thing you need to do to begin healing. Without proper drainage, the toxins accumulating in your body will continue to make you sick. Even worse, if you try to detox or cleanse without proper drainage, it will only make matters worse by pushing toxins back into your bloodstream. It’s a simple concept in theory, but can take your body some time to execute.
According to Dr. Jay Davidson during his interview , “Your body needs proper drainage. And drainage support is even more important. It has to happen in a certain order.” That’s where mainstream detoxes and cleanses go wrong. Your body eliminates via bowels, urine, lungs, lymph, and sweat. Dr. Davidson’s protocol takes you safely and properly through each of the phases of cleaning up your symptoms by “effectively addressing drainage and front-loading with products that support your lymphatic system, your kidneys and liver, and your colon.
Full Moon Detox Challenge
I will safely detox.
Yes. Full Moon Detoxes are a thing. Complete with moon juice. Most of these detoxes are a wee bit out there on the woo woo scale. And that’s ok. I wanted to create one that was a little more normal. A little more not so out there. And one that was safe for you.
I will get past the ick factor.
Parasites aren’t just found in third-world countries, millions are already infected in industrialized countries–they’re far more common than you realize and could be silently hampering your health. According to a 2014 press release by the Centers for Disease Control, “Most people think parasitic diseases occur in poor and developing countries or are infections they might pick up on a trip to a foreign country. However, parasitic infections also occur in the United States, and in some cases affect millions of people.
Often they can go unnoticed, with few symptoms. But many times the infections cause serious illnesses, including seizures, blindness, pregnancy complications, heart failure, and even death. Anyone—regardless of race or economic status—can become infected.” Fortunately, with awareness and appropriate care, parasites can be prevented and treated, once detected.
Always remember, you never want to go on a parasite cleanse without being under proper medical supervision, whether from a medical or naturopathic doctor.
Reducing EMF Exposure
I will reduce my EMF exposure.
5G is here and electromagnetic radiation or electrosmog is all around us. It’s virtually impossible to work and live without having wifi and all of the corresponding devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Science is just beginning to uncover the dangers of EMF exposure, especially when it comes to autoimmune disease. Talk about mystery symptoms! EMF can cause some of the best. While it’s difficult to pinpoint the source, there are numerous anecdotal studies of health conditions improving when the exposure is eliminated or reduced.
EMF exposure can greatly harm your sleep patterns, especially if you sleep with your phone beside your bed. Turn it onto airplane mode while you sleep. To help reduce exposure while on your phone or laptop, use EMF shields specifically designed to reduce the EMF radiation.
I will drink responsibly.
It’s not just about the amount of alcohol that you consume. It’s the type. Here’s the dirty little secret. It’s not the wine itself that is “bad” for you or is what is causing any kind of negative reaction. It’s all of the additives and sugar. Did you know that traditional wine has added sugar and preservatives and higher alcohol content? But fear not, it IS possible to enjoy Keto and Paleo-friendly wine that is low in sugar and alcohol!
Minimize Blue Light Exposure
I will make sleep a priority.
Do you have trouble falling asleep or toss and turn in the middle of the night?
According to James and Tristan Swanwick, “There are lights on our screens that we stare into at nighttime after the sun is long gone. Blue light is in your cell phone, TV screen, computer, bathroom and kitchen lights, alarm clock – almost everywhere. When we stare at these screens – as you may be doing now – it tricks our bodies into thinking it’s still daytime. This means we don’t produce as much melatonin.”
Melatonin is the hormone that regulates your sleep/wake cycle.
Since it’s impossible to live in a bubble and not be away from our cell phones, tablets, computers and TV’s for any length of time, day glasses for screen glare and classic blue light blockers are often our practitioner’s favorite health hacks.
I will tap into a better emotional state.
It’s called the Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT or Tapping. It may help to combat anxiety, stress, insomnia, and even anger and other negative emotions. By using a tapping sequence on specific energy meridians on the body, along with a corresponding dialog, it may help to immediately clear your mind and emotional state.
I know personally, this health hack has helped me greatly in times of increased stress, dealing with emotional issues, and falling back to sleep in the middle of the night. It’s a good tool to have in your healing arsenal to pull out when you need it. It’s free, you can do it anywhere, and only takes a few minutes of your time.
I will drink clean water.
According to testing conducted by the Environmental Working Group, 250 chemicals were detected in American drinking water overall (160 of which are not regulated by the federal government). Even more worrying, 81 percent of systems tested had contaminants that have been linked to cancer. Some of the most notable offenders include Chloroform and Chromium-6, though more research still needs to be done on exactly how much of these we need to ingest to be at risk.
Contaminants found in water can be linked to diseases such as cancer, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, thyroid problems, brain diseases, and liver, kidney, and nervous system problems. The experts all agree on good quality water filtrations systems. Many of our experts have a whole home system, but even ones you keep under the kitchen sink and on your bathroom shower are better than none at all.
Protect Your Skin
I will be kind to my skin.
Gorgeous, luminous skin isn’t just about wearing sunscreen in the summer. It’s about taking care of your skin from the inside out. Keep your skincare products clean and simple and for toxic-free options. Many skin care products contain chemicals that actually have an adverse effect on the skin (and many are endocrine disruptors – yikes!).
Look for products that are free of color, fragrance, oxybenzone, DEA, parabens, dioxin, PEG, and phthalates.
