Healing Our Bodies with Wholesome Foods & Supplements

It’s amazing to me how the human body works. It's important to explore how the food we consume can become medicine for our bodies in our minds. Whole foods are the best option, these are foods in their natural state, unprocessed and unrefined. Think fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and lean proteins. These foods are rich in essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that our bodies need to function optimally.

Every bite we take can either contribute to our health or detract from it. Foods high in antioxidants, like berries and leafy greens, combat oxidative stress and inflammation, which are at the root of many chronic diseases. Similarly, foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon and flaxseeds, are vital for heart health and cognitive function.

A significant part of our immune system is housed in our gut. Many believe that our gut is our second brain, this makes our digestive health crucial in our overall wellness. If our gut health is off, our body will show it, our minds will also. Foods like yogurt, kefir, and fermented vegetables are rich in probiotics, which help in maintaining a healthy gut microbiome, thus enhancing our immune response. Vitamins like enzymes help a major deal in helping our gut. We have to break down food in a healthy way and sometimes supplements can help.

Balancing our blood sugar levels is key to maintaining energy and preventing diseases like diabetes. Foods with a low glycemic index, such as whole grains and legumes, release glucose slowly into the bloodstream, helping us avoid spikes and crashes in energy.

As we choose healing foods, it’s also essential to practice mindful eating. This means being present during meals, savoring each bite, chewing slow, don’t drink while you eat, wait 30 minutes after a meal then drink water. Your body needs to break down food through producing its own acids. If your body is having a hard time with acids producing too low, take HCL vitaminsone with each meal and you will feel a world of difference.

Here are a few of my favorite supplements: 

for Cardiovascular Health
Omega 3s: I love the brand Carlson® (Maximum Omega 2000)
Bergamot: Helps with high cholesterol, I love the brand Ortho Molecular Products®.
Hawthorn Berries: High blood pressure and heart health if you are having heart palpitations also. I love the brand Nature’s Sunshine. 


for Digestive Health
Stomach Herbs & Enzymes: To help break down food, great also if you have no gallbladder. I love the brand HCL™ Loomis® Enzymes.
Bowel Movement Aid: We should be going to the bathroom at least two times a day. I love the brand AmiTox DC Clarifying Detox
