Vitality and Health – Q/A

Q:  Are there any recommendations you have to increase vitality and health during the summer months?

A:  The summer months are great time of year to increase your vitality, energy, & achieve optimum results.  Whether you’re detoxifying, or just bringing awareness to your health; summer offers a unique opportunity to increase vitamin, and mineral absorption.  Vitamin D is waiting to be absorbed through your skin via the sun, so spending time outdoors will naturally increase your immune strength, and vitality.  Buy local and seasonal fruits, and veggies: take advantage by eating fresh and organic.  Also invest in a good juicer, try a ratio of 70% greens to 30% fruit daily.  Freshly pressed juices allow nutrients to enter your blood stream almost instantaneously. With juices, your digestive system needs to do very little work therefore; your blood stream receives a concentrated dose of healthy nutrients, as well as naturally detoxifying the body, and improving digestion.  This ratio will keep the sugars low and increase you metabolic rate.   Buyer Be Ware: not all juicers are created equally, so talking to a local nutritionist in the “know” will save you time & money.
