Juice Recipe That Sky Rockets Health Naturally

For our body to function efficiently and at its optimum level, it’s important that we digest a variety of vitamins and nutrients. Fruit and vegetables are the best way to acquire these nutrients, but sometimes eating these food types alone can be bland and boring. Creating a juice out of these foods however is a fun and interesting way to absorb all of the required vitamins and nutrients our body needs and also to sky-rocketing our health naturally.

Here’s my favourite juice recipe that works wonders for the inner workings of my body.

It’s up to you how you would like to extract the juice from these fruits. I do it by hand, but it takes a considerable amount of time and effort. Perhaps purchasing a juicer would be a good investment if you make this juice a regular addition to your diet.

2 Fresh Grapefruit

To put it bluntly, grapefruits are absolutely stuffed with Vitamin C which helps to protect the immune system. It also contains the antioxidant, lycopene, which has the highest capacity to help fight oxygen free radicals, which are compounds that can damage cells. On top of this, grapefruit contains pectin which has been proven in animal studies to slow down the progression of atherosclerosis and contribute to the lowering of cholesterol.

2 Fresh Oranges

Of course, oranges provide an invaluable source of Vitamin C (in fact just one orange supplies over 110% of your daily value for Vitamin C), but they also have many other health benefits. Oranges also protect against cardiovascular disease, contain liminoids which fight cancer, lower cholesterol, act as a good source of fibre, protect against kidney stones, rheumatoid arthritis and respiratory health. Consider the sweet and heavenly taste of oranges and it makes an excellent addition to your juice recipe.

Half a Lime

While lime alone can taste very sour, mixed with other juices and it can add that kick that you need to your new juice drink. Limes contain flavonoid compounds that have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties, as well as a high concentration of vitamin C that helps to protect the immune system and reduce cholesterol by preventing the build up of free radicals that block the arteries.

These fruits squeezed of all their juices and mixed together will make up approximately a pint of heavenly tasting, health empowering and mind enhancing juice. Try it yourself and see how you like it!

How to Improve Your Health Naturally

Learning how to improve your health naturally may give you immeasurably more improved quality of life. And it’s probably the quality of life that most people want, rather than the quantity, or length of life.

If you have good quality of life, you can think clearly, have good energy and so motivation, enjoy good company, don’t suffer particularly and, perhaps best of all, don’t see life through a drugged haze.

Here are some suggestions which will cost you little, but have the potential to make significant changes on the quality of your life.

  1. Make sure your diet is rich in quality raw foods, which are living foods, full of enzymes, easy to digest and are quickly converted to available energy. By comparison, cooked and processed food is ‘dead’.
  2. Drink when you’re thirsty. Drink mainly filtered water. Mild de-hydration can be the cause of many ailments, including high blood pressure. Avoid excess coffee (a diuretic so will increase your dehydration) and soft drinks (which increase your body acidity).
  3. The sun is essential to all life. Ensure you are exposed to it without sun screen. Without sun, you can easily suffer with vitamin D deficiency.
  4. Look upon pain as a sign your body, or some part of your body needs attention. Pain is your friend, not your enemy. It alerts you to something that you may not otherwise realise. Avoiding the pain with pain killers detaches your mind from your body.
  5. Use holistic medicines, in particular homeopathy, as your health modality, as these work by improving your immune system. Drugs work by depressing your immune system.
  6. See something beautiful or wondrous every day. It may be the colour of a flower, the flight of an insect, the gentle breeze in a tree, a bird’s song, a child’s giggle, a shop assistant’s care and attention, the smile of your partner. Stop and enjoy the moment. Savour it. Then look for it in other areas.
  7. Learn something new every week. This not only enriches your life with more information, but it keeps your learning skills honed and your brain eager for more. This can be one of the fastest ways of countering depression.
  8. Learn to spend time only with those who enrich your life. Either avoid those who drain your energy, or learn to switch off, to disengage, in their presence. This will prevent them ‘stealing’ your energy. Soon, they will leave you alone and move on to others less well armoured.
  9. Take regular (daily) time to unwind, to de-stress, to relax. This can be simply a few precious seconds of meditation several times a day, or an hour in the part. Just make sure it’s regular. Learn to put your mind in neutral.
  10. Learn to trust your intuition, that feeling which often comes out of the blue, but will always alert you to trouble and is always on your side. Learning to trust this little used ability can take time, but it is much more valuable than ten PhD’s.

Learn How to Have Beautiful Skin

Let’s face it. It seems to me that not enough people seem to want to take the time to learn how to have beautiful skin naturally. They would rather simply rely on the products that the major cosmetics companies keep pumping out year after year. These products however are doing absolutely nothing whatsoever in the way of helping people who want to have healthy skin.

As a matter of fact the products that these big companies put out accompanied by their million dollar ad campaigns aren’t even good for you. They contain primarily chemical agents as ingredients that can have some very serious effects on the person that habitually uses the products that contain them. Most people have no idea just how serious these effects can turn out to be.

“Beauty of nature”

The major cosmetics companies would do almost anything to prevent consumers from discovering how to have beautiful skin naturally, because that would mean that they would have to switch to using natural ingredients in their products in order to satisfy their now more particular customers. Natural ingredients cost more to process so the cosmetics industry by and large doesn’t want to have to make this switch.

What they would rather do is be able to continue to fill their products with synthetics and chemicals, because these ingredients don’t require much processing. They are low cost, readily available in large quantities, and if you were to believe the swill that the manufacturers try to sell you they are safe for you to use. Nothing my friends could be further from the truth.

I believe that everyone should educate themselves on the subject of how to have beautiful skin naturally, because then they would have the knowledge to understand what ingredients were good for them, and which ones they should avoid. The chemical contaminants regularly used in products by the major cosmetics companies should be avoided unless you want to damage your health.

These chemical agents have been proven over the years to be endocrine system disruptors, organ and neurotoxins, and are known to cause cancer. These ingredients are only still allowed to be used in the United States because regulation by the FDA to ban their use was overturned in federal court. The European Union was successful in having these ingredients pulled from cosmetics products.

If you want to learn about how to have beautiful skin naturally you should take a lesson from a cosmetics company in New Zealand that uses what are possibly the finest combinations of natural ingredients that the industry has ever seen. Their products offer you natural ingredients that safely and dramatically increase the amount of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid that your skin has.

Beautiful and Natural Benefits of Visiting a Day Spa

It seems as if every day in modern society is filled with one stress after another. When you spend time at your city day spa, you can get away from it all and let yourself be a little pampered. In addition to the many excellent, non-invasive, natural beauty treatments offered at your local day spa, you will enjoy being treated like a queen for a day with fluffy towels and robes, all natural cosmetics, and a friendly, knowledgeable, helpful staff whose job it is to help you feel great!

Massage is a wonderful way to relax and release tension in the muscles and the mind. It is also excellent for the central nervous system and for improving blood circulation. A weekly visit to a day spa for a professional massage will help rid your system of waste and toxins by stimulating the lymphatic system. If you have been experiencing aches and pains, or if you are recovering from an illness, you will feel 100% better after a relaxing, professional massage at your city day spa.

Hydrotherapy is the therapy of water, and it is a fantastic way to release excess energy and refresh your body and mind. Whether you choose swimming, relaxing in a Jacuzzi, taking the steam or all three, you are sure to emerge feeling completely renewed.

When you enjoy hydrotherapy, it has a very positive effect on the blood vessels, relieves muscle stiffness and aches, and stimulates the natural production of endorphins, which relieve pain and help you feel contented and happy. Hydrotherapy is as effective as muscle relaxants, if not more so, and it’s so much better for you! An application of natural face cream while enjoying a steam bath is a great natural beauty treatment!

Visiting a day spa is like a mini-vacation. Taking a day to enjoy a steam bath, a massage, and other non-invasive beauty treatments really sets your mind at ease and releases stress and tension while leaving you feeling refreshed and pampered thanks to careful, professional, natural health and beauty treatments.

Many day spas also offer phytotherapy, which is the use of all-natural herbal and plant-based preparations to help balance hormone levels without the unpleasant and often dangerous side effects of prescription medications. The use of just the right combination of natural plant extracts can help heal and restore the natural hormonal balance of women in menopause or those experiencing hormone imbalances for some other reason. Gentle, safe and natural phytotherapy can, and should, be used both for prevention and as a gentle, natural treatment for hormone related difficulties.

After a day at the spa, you will go home feeling rested, relaxed and beautiful. You’ll be ready for a quiet – perhaps romantic – evening and a good night of deep and restful sleep. If you usually use medication for sleep, you will probably be able to forego it after a day at the spa. If you visit your day spa regularly, you may be able to forego it altogether. The combination of massage, hydrotherapy, and simple relaxation will work wonders to help you relax and feel calmer. If you have been troubled by headaches or other tension related illnesses, you are very likely to see a reduction in them when you visit your day spa often.

Many day spas offer a health and fitness program that helps you get into the habit of regular, light exercise and healthful eating. The professionals at your day spa can provide you with good information and support to help you shape up and lose weight pleasantly without dangerous drugs.

When you visit your city day spa on a regular basis, you will enjoy a great variety of benefits. The holistic natural treatments you receive will renew your body, mind and spirit and leave you feeling refreshed and ready to face the challenges of your everyday life beautifully and naturally!
