HELP ME GET STARTED IN HEALTH!
THIS PAGE IS FOR ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE ASKED ME “WHAT DO YOU HAVE ON YOUR WEBSITE TO HELP A BEGINNER?”
The Food Basics
- Drink half your body weight in ounces of water and or broths, veggie juices nd herbal teas
- Eat as much raw food as you can – CHEW 30-50 x per mouthful
- For those in poor health do not fry or heat fats/oils at all – can eat them RAW only – like melt raw butter on steamed veggies ok
- Easy starter vegetables one can carry around all day without a refrigerator are radishes, carrots, and celery. In the summer months one can add cucumbers, summer squashes, fresh beans and peas.
- AVOID flour foods, foods in packaging, and excess carbohydrates
The Self-Care / Lifestyle Basics
- Ideal bedtime 10pm <> Ideal Wake 6AM (sleep quantity can vary quite a bit for people but we can only RESTORE with rest.
- If sitting – move around every 2 hours for 5-10 minutes – choose from This Link
- Choose to swing arms, swing legs, bounce up and down, shoulder shrugs, 5 deep breaths 6 count in and out, and 3-5 rounds of alternate nostril breath with a 4 count breathe in, hold in, exhale, and hold air out
- Make a daily round of two electrolyte drinks per day as part of your ‘water/liquid.” = 16 oz water (other liquids might be used but not caffeinated nor sweet drinks), 1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt, 1 tsp cream of tartar, 1/2 tsp PH Minerals (premier Research Labs), and 1/4-1/2 tsp calcium lactate) CAN BUY CALCIUM AND PH MINERALS HERE
Mind, Emotions, Breath, and Attitude
- The EASY basics is to be HERE, be present
- One simple way is when we become aware we are not present we can take 5 breaths of six count inhale and six count exhale
- Another method is to find appreciation and gratitude when we wake and before bed and to “choose the better feeling thought” when given a choice.
- Find someone and or a group you trust, you feel safe and welcome with, and set SMART goals. Be held accountable for your goals and new higher values of health.
- Practice speaking from your heart = in the moment, use I Statements, and monitor triggers and reactions for inquiry.
This is a typical Blended Juice set of ingredients = chop up, put in blender with water to cover, blend well, let sit 10-15 minutes, blend once more, then put over a strainer and massage out the juice! If you like all the fiber you can just puree and drink and chew it all up. But I’ve found the strained juice allows me a higher yield
