The energy you put in your body in the form of food and drink becomes the energy of life. "You are what you eat" is more than just an aphorism. In-office testing is designed to help you choose what is best for your body including type and amount of water.
Local, raw vine-ripened fruits and vegetables contain the highest levels of natural enzymes, which are necessary to good digestion of those foods. “God” foods are the ones that are real : food without a label. Genesis 1:29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” You’ll find them (in order of freshness) in your backyard, at the local farmer’s market, or in the outer aisles of your local supermarket. Local grass-fed meats, pastured eggs, and raw dairy are also beneficial. Bio-energetic assessments can help find your ideal diet.
The most basic requirement for good health is pure water. Nothing hydrates like water, and many other beverages such as soda, tea, and coffee dehydrate the body even further, preventing us from performing our best. Your cells and organs need water to do all the things that they are supposed to do. Conversely, when one does not drink enough, the balance of health is upset and your body becomes weak against threats. Some signs of dehydration include headaches, dry skin, dry eyes, dry mouth, and kidney pain.
How much water does one need for optimal health? Experts suggest a starting point of half your body weight in ounces. For instance, a 150 pound person would require 75 ounces of water per day. I like to keep a marked jug on the table which I fill each morning and drink throughout the day. For every cup of caffeinated beverage you consume, add one extra cup of water.
Although there are many types of water available, there are two specific types which are most efficiently used by the body to hydrate our tissues. The recommended types are reverse osmosis and distilled. Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a specific filtration system designed to remove all contaminants and minerals. Distilled comes from a steam processing method which accomplishes the same task. Why remove minerals? Aren't they good for us? The solid "rock" forms of minerals found in "mineral water" and "Spring water" are not absorbed by the body are are simply a hindrance to hydration. Tap water, especially from a municipal water supply can also contain chlorine and fluoride which have deleterious effects on the body, including the prevention of iodine absorption by thyroid receptor cells.
So drink up and schedule an appointment for your custom health recommendations
