March 27, 2017, by Tony Isaacs (UtopiaSilver.com) Here are some key measures we must take to grow and know how to become a healthier and younger you- part 2.
- Eliminate and Avoid Toxins
If you avoid toxins and eliminate toxins from your body and your home and work environments then you will be much more likely to live longer and healthier. The wonderful Environmental Working Group website has a world of information about what products are toxic as well as information on natural and less toxic substitutes for household and other items.
To find our more about eliminating and removing toxins, see:
- Make Sure You Have a Healthy Liver
The liver is our body’s primary toxin removal organ and a healthy liver is essential for good health. When the liver Is impaired, toxins that should have been eliminated will instead be stored in the liver, leading to a fatty liver condition, or else recirculated throughout the body via the blood stream – and they will continue to build up in our cells.
To make sure that your liver is healthy, regularly conduct liver and gallbladder cleanses and take key supplements. Milk thistle (silymarin) has been certified by the German E Commission to be able to protect, cleanse and regenerate the liver. Two other key supplements for liver health are selenium and alpha-lipoic acid, both of which also have anti-aging properties.
- Eat a Very Healthy Diet
Be sure to eat a very healthy alkalizing paleo-type diet which includes plenty of fresh vegetables as well as fresh fruits, nuts, and seeds and nutrient dense unprocessed foods that contribute to good health and boost the vital immune system. For the healthiest diet, choose organic content as much as possible and include foods which are proven immune boosters. Note that a recent year study found that eating an organic diet for a week can reduce pesticide levels by up to 90%. It is probably safe to assume that other toxins will also be drastically reduced.
Besides avoiding junk foods, fast foods and sugary foods and beverages, it is also a good idea to carefully read the labels when buying packaged food items from the grocers. It has been estimated that 80% of the packaged items found on grocers’ shelves in the U.S. contain one or more ingredients which have been banned in other countries.
Use caution when buying non-organic vegetables and fruits, since they often contain harmful pesticides. Find out which ones are the worst and which are the safest by looking at the Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen lists of the Environmental Working Group.
- Make Sure to Have Optimum Nutrition
People with nutritional deficiencies are more likely to become ill and age faster. Most of us are deficient in multiple vitamins and minerals. For example, it has been variously estimated that 70 to 95 percent of us are deficient in magnesium – the “master mineral” that plays a role in over 300 body processes. Other common nutrient deficiencies include vitamins D, K2, B12, E, and A, omega-3, magnesium, iodine, calcium, iron, and choline. It is a good idea to be tested for nutritional deficiencies and then supplement as needed to address any deficiencies found.
A healthy diet is essential; however, contrary to the mainstream myth, it is virtually impossible to get optimum nutrition from diet alone. Thanks to our mineral-depleted soils and food products which have had much of the nutrition processed out (and toxic additives processed in), it is pretty much impossible to get even the measly RDA amounts of the handful of vitamins and major minerals on a daily basis from diet alone.
In addition to addressing deficiencies, it is a very good idea to regularly take a good all-around nutritional product. Be sure to get organic, whole food derived supplements as much as possible. Our bodies know the difference between nutrients found in nature and those created by man.
Our bodies need and utilize a great number of nutrients besides just the handful of items on the RDA list. Consider this: the truly superior all-around nutritional product intraMAX contains a whopping 415 different nutrients, including not only vitamins and minerals, but also trace minerals, enzymes, phyto nutrients and more – and the body utilizes every single one of them!
