There are all kinds of recipes. Recipes for food, skin care, cleaning products and more. But do you know what the recipe for optimal health entails?
Because our bodies are each so unique, there honestly isn’t one all-encompassing recipe for great health.  And, because of our individuality, what causes imbalance in one person may not cause issues in another. Just like you adjust the spices in a recipe to find just the right balance of flavors for you, so too, you will need to discover what lies at the heart of your body’s imbalance before learning how it can be remedied. The secret is finding the unique recipe that works for YOUR body.
Over the years, I’ve learned firsthand that one vital ingredient for achieving balance and optimal health is cleansing. There are many ways to detox the body; the details of which will depend on your needs.
Unfortunately, detoxing often receives a bad rap, as some detox programs can put the body at risk rather than help it.  When you detox the body, using whole and functional food, herbs and lifestyle methods, you energize and alkalize your cells, which are your body’s workforce! The body needs both energy and an alkaline environment to reduce illness-causing inflammation and allow the cells to perform at an optimal level. When you embrace cleansing as a lifestyle, the need to mask symptoms with quick fixes and band-aids won’t be necessary. Cleansing the body, in a holistic way, IS the root cause resolution that will bring you thriving health.
A few newsletters back I shared a little about my imbalance and my journey back to optimal health.and I spoke of non-negotiables and how, over the years, I have developed the ones that keep me balanced, grounded and healthy.  (If you missed that issue and want to read it, click here.)  Here are my non-negotiable that ensure my optimal health:
  • Nourishing my body with anti-inflammatory, clean, seasonal whole foods
  • Moving my body, regularly, and on some days, vigorously
  • Sleeping 7-9 hrs. most nights
  • Creating space to be still, and to meditate and be with nature
  • Taking time out for myself, every single day
  • Embracing self-care and daily morning and evening rituals that support my body, mind, and spirit
  • Maintaining healthy, honest, and positive relationships with both family and friends
  • Spending time doing what I love and feeding my passion.
  • Inspiring others and being inspired
