Health and wellbeing are resources that enable individuals to thrive and reach their full potential. When it comes to being healthy you want to make sure you are 100% healthy. You want to be dominating life and certainly, don’t have time to be unhealthy. Today we’re going to teach you how to stay healthy from head to toe. Let’s begin:
Upper Body Health
Brain – Enrich your meals with Omega-3s. Time and again, studies show that people who eat diets rich in these fatty acids (found in salmon and nuts) test high for mental sharpness.
Eyes– eat your greens. Leafy ones like spinach and kale contain the nutrients lutein and beta-carotene, which are critical to vision retention as we age.
Teeth – Watch out for acidic foods and drinks like soda, wine, and citrus fruits. They do a number on your tooth enamel, encoding it and making teeth discolored, more sensitive and susceptible to decay. Drink through a straw whenever you can, that way less of the liquid comes in direct contact with your teeth.
Heart – Grab some grapes. They contain a powerful antioxidant called resveratrol, which can significantly reduce your risk of heart disease. It’s also found in wine (part of the reason a glass of red wine can be good for your heart), but drinking more than about one 4-oz. a glass a day can raise the risk for other diseases, including breast cancer. But you can eat grapes every day.
Lungs – Mediterranean diet were significantly less prone to breathing problems like asthma and chronic bronchitis. Researchers think that the antioxidants may protect the lungs from stress, while the Omega-3s helps reduce inflammation.
Liver – Go easy on the acetaminophen and try some selenium. Selenium is a mineral found in turkey, eggs, oatmeal, fish and mushrooms. It has been shown to boost liver function.
Kidneys – Stay clear of processed foods. They’re loaded with salt, a big cause of kidney stones, which are on the rise in women. A second way to stay clear of stones: Drink lots of water, especially in the summer months, when we’re sweating a lot and most cases of kidney stones occur.
Pancreas – Rest up! Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the best things you can do for your pancreas, the organ that’s responsible for producing insulin (which you want to keep low).
Stomach – Trim some serious fat from your food. People who are heartburn-free eat about 10 grams less fat daily than those who get that uncomfortable sensation in their chest regularly, according to a recent study.
Intestines – Have a cup of coffee and a handful of almonds. Recent research shows that both can up the levels of “good” bacteria in your digestive system, helping ward off illness and aiding good digestion.
Hands – Deep-moisturize. Moisturize frequently with a cream or lotion thick enough to form a protective layer.
Lower Body Health
Feet – Give them a rinse down with dandruff shampoo and massage. Washing your feet with a shampoo containing selenium sulfide two or three times a week can prevent foot fungus. Show your feet a little love by giving them massage daily, using long strokes from the ball of your foot down to your heel.
