My 5 easiest ways to FIX YOUR NUTRITION!

1). Water - Make sure that you are drinking enough. Many times issues such as headaches, cramps and constipation stem from being dehydrated. Try to drink very little at meal time and if any save it for the end of the meal. It's best to drink water either room temperature or hot. This aids in better digestion and absorption of nutrients from your meal. The recommended amount of water to consume daily is ½ ones body weight in ounces. It's great to start and end your day with a glass of water either room temperature or hot.
2). Salt - Unprocessed sea salt such as REAL salt and , CELTIC sea salt have all 74 plus trace minerals need by the body. Salt holds water in solution therefore aiding to prevent cramping, headaches and constipation as mentioned above. Salt feeds the adrenal glands and is one ingredient the digestive system uses to make HCL in the stomach.
3). Digestion - ALL DISEASE starts in the GUT. There are many ways we can help keep the digestive fire strong and healthy. Drinking some ginger tea is a great way to rekindle the digestive process along with, fennel, cumin and coriander utilized in the meal or also used as a tea. Drinking a spoonful of apple cider vinegar along with some water is also a great natural digestive aid. These tips are easy to incorporate into your daily routine and you will notice a nice difference in the health of your digestive system.
4). Decrease the Sugar - in your diet. Sugar is causing so many diseases and is the real culprit in obesity. Fruit is a great replacement for processed sugar. My motto is for every one piece of fruit you need to have two cups of greens, as we all have a tendency to over eat sugar so lets try and become aware. Also fruit needs to be eaten at least 1-2 hours before or after meals. Mixing fruits with vegetables can cause digestive discomfort.
5). Greens - We all need to increase our consumption of green vegetables whether it be by increasing the amount of salads that we eat or cooked vegetables or incorporating them into our soups and meals. Remember to add butter or coconut oil, olive or sesame seed oil onto your vegetables in order for our bodies to utilize the nutrients in the green vegetables.
These 5 ways to fix you nutrition are meant for all of us. Try and become aware. Just by doing any one of these suggestions one should notice a positive change.
