CREATE HEALTHY HABITS; NOT RESTRICTIONS

Food is Medicine

Let’s face it… everyday is a journey and can be stressful as you are trying to figure out what to eat. With so many protocols and theories, it can be overwhelming. Healing is obtained in many forms, and fueling your body with good nutrition is one of the best ways to heal. The Sauna life is your go-to for healthy eating and lifestyle tips. 

Even though we all can not follow the same protocol, we all can agree that “food is medicine”.

Alkalinity & Inflammation

The concept of alkalinity is becoming more popular. As many people suffer from inflammation and so much disease, you first HAVE to look at your diet. The human body’s PH plays such an important role in your health.

Your kidneys and lungs maintain a PH of around 7.4 and while the body could get too alkaline, it is more likely for your body to be acidic. Disease can not live in an alkaline state. When the body is too acidic, you will develop acidosis which will lead to so many health issues.

Animal based foods are the most inflammatory foods, along with sugar, alcohol, refined grains, processed food, junk foods, caffeine, fast food and sodas. The goal is to reduce acidity in the body with greens, vegetables, fruits, raw nuts, seeds, beans, and superfoods. 

I follow Dr Sebi and his daughter Saama Bowman on Instagram. These books, diet programs, and protocols are highly recommended.

Being mindful of what you eat is not only great for your physical well being, but it is important for your mind, and spirit too. Not sure where to start? The Sauna Life is a great resource for health eating and lifestyle tips.

EAT, LIVE & FEEL WELL

Being mindful of what you eat is not only great for your physical well being, but it is important for your mind, and spirit too.

Meat can slow down digestion, clog up the bowels and help bacteria to breed in your gut. Milk, cheese, and other dairy products are acidic to the body, leading to poor cell function and slowing down detoxification.

Wheat and any form of gluten is harmful to the lining of the intestines and leads to poor nutrient intake; as well as bloating, indigestion, and constipation.

Alcohol is toxic to the liver and reduces levels of detoxifying minerals such as zinc and magnesium.

Caffeine leads to increased levels of toxins in the body.

Nightshades release a toxin called solanine which can cause cramps, diarrhea, joint pain, and headaches. They also Interfere with absorption of calcium, iron, and vitamins.

Processed, packaged, frozen foods are basically “dead foods” and lack nutrition and are high in salt, bad fats and artificial ingredients. (Ex. lean cuisine, healthy choice, etc)

Sugar increases mood swings, brain fog, and energy peaks and it fights against the good bacteria leading to slower detox.
