Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I had my first appointment with my Naturopath. I have found someone who will help keep me on the track to healing my body, thru raw and whole foods. I was so happy to find a supportive person. I was warned by some people that a Naturopath will just try to sell supplements. Well I did buy supplements, and actually less than I buy at the drug store. My ND told me she will work in conjunction with my MD and Endocrinologist. I left so empowered. I actually feel, after all of these years that I can heal my body, rather than treat the symptoms.
Some suggestions I was given
As many raw and whole foods as possible, organic if possible.
Avoid. gluten, artifical sweeteners, sugar and processed foods, If consuming dairy or meats, get organic. Fish only wild caught.
Drink more that half your weight in ounces of water daily. So if you weight 200 lbs you should be taking in at least 100 ounces of filtered water. (our organs are the first body parts to dehydrate, inlcuding brain, this makes me wonder about depression?)
Rest for 10 minutes during the day (to me that is take 10 minutes, close my office door and pray/ meditate)
Exercise daily at least 30 minutes
Get outdoors as much as possible, at least 30 minutes daily.
Proper amount of sleep
No negativity, start the day out on good thoughts and if you have to, avoid being around people who bring you down.
Take detox baths once a week, with 3 cup of cider vinegar or 1 cup of baking soda. Not hot but warm.
Listen to your body symptoms are your body's way of communicating to you something is amiss.
Prayer or meditation

"Life is a journey, not a destination".
My Natuopath suggested I "raw juice" for two days of the week.
I love this woman. We think alike and now I have an advocate working to help me regain my health ! I have been blessed today.
