Optimal Health and Vitality

 

Have you ever heard of the phrase  “you are what you eat” ?. It is a well known truism for good reason. We cannot stress enough how important diet is in the way you look and feel. If you choose to eat primarily junk food and processed food, not only are you not giving your body the nutrients it needs, but also you are consciously putting toxins into your body which creates a lot of work to remove. The body is designed to maintain a state of balance and equilibrium.

On the other hand, if you eat a diet full of pure, whole foods, your body will be healthy and will have the nutrients to devote to things such as skin and hair.

All the massive health problems that we face today (particularly in the western part of the world) in our opinion relate to three things:  breakfast,  Lunch  and Dinner!

Antioxidants play a key role in neutralising the free radical damage that causes many health problems -  the USANA product range are designed to equip your body with the armor to protect our cells from this daily assault.

Dealing with Stress

We love what Dr Macola said in a Blog Post – “There is quite a bit of truth behind the term ‘beauty sleep.’ That’s because when you sleep your body is able to repair cells and rest your heart and mind. It’s imperative that your body has a chance to revitalize itself overnight. Too many nights of missed sleep will show up on your face and will take a toll on your body too.”  So true.

While you’re awake make sure that you take some time to enjoy life. It’s no illusion that stressful events seem to make wrinkles and gray hairs appear overnight. Stress will wear you down both inside and out–it has been estimated that up to 90 percent of illness and disease is stress-related.

Many studies show how the wear and tear of everyday life and in particular traumatic life events can trigger major illnesses -  we must protect our health in order to deal with these realities.

USANA products along with a well balanced diet, proper sleep, hydration and exercise are our life choice to achieve this.
