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.
