All articles begin with i Good Resolutions of January. We all promise a new life full of good practices, healthy behaviors and orderly rhythms. Among the many goals with which we fill tables e TO DO LIST surely the two most mythical ones cannot be missing: LOSE WEIGHT AND STAY IN SHAPE. Of course the Spirit also needs to be strengthened and therefore the promises are focused on one whole range of good thoughts from not telling lies anymore to giving us a healthy space all to ourselves to starting that new book and that painting class. Whatever our priority the point is that if we want a New Beginning to happen, we must also put our own
Making things happen! Help the wind change direction!
How can we help the planets align? Well, we can start with small but long-term strategies they can have beneficial effects. Like preventing negative elements, such as seasonal ailments and a `` bad '' management of our body / organism. Let us remember that we are in Winter
WINTER: FRIEND ENEMY?
OK theWinter is beautiful. Even if in this particular year we will not be able to live it in all its magic, in all its richness of situations we are used to. But it's nice. With its clean cold, with its clear sky and the air that carves the clear shapes on the horizon. Its beautiful horseback rides of a year that ends and one that begins. With the light that seems to change in a click of the switch, passing from the dark light on the credits to the open light in the new one that arrives. Have you ever been guided by the suggestion that in the first days of January you have the clear sensation that the light is different, that you are already moving towards the lengthening of time? Well winter is rebirth, like a blank page that opens and offers itself to our pencil to draw new lines and new paths. At the risk of repeating ourselves, let's remember that resolutions, promises, programs, projects, dreams… all start in winter. To advance during the year and perhaps forever or to break into a thousand splinters of regret
But rightly winter is a month in which it's cold. And it is as trivial to recognize it as it is obvious to consider it impacts on our health. In Winter you get sick more easily, all the symptoms of flu and colds, various blockages, muscle contractures converge. In general, the body is more exposed to illness, to resume the vocabulary of the grandmother in the armchair. "Cover up or you will take an accident", these are the indelible words of those who knew a lot. Almost as good as the 'tie your shoes or you will tumble'. Those words that annoyed us precisely because, in their annoyance, they always took us. So we feel like recovering all the popular wisdom and re-proposing the most obvious but wise warning "TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF IN WINTER'
Especially this winter, we would like to suggest. Where by taking care we mean a healthy attitude towards your body, your organism and also towards an increasingly important psychological balance to be able to overcome such insidious and impactful challenges. Health passes through Balance, which becomes the Magic Word and Good Practice
Before leaving you to some significant considerations that try to decline the phases of Wellness, LIO VERDE wanted to wish you all the strength, the determination, the passion, the magic, the desire necessary and necessary to make this beginning of the year a first step towards something beautiful, peaceful. Something that really makes you / us feel that the wind is changing
For example: we are returning from the holidays and, especially these holidays, maybe we allowed ourselves a lot of `` cuddles '' in terms of food, toasts and desserts. In short, we absolutely deserved it! But now, looking to the distant but near summer, it is better to consider that we have the right time to purify ourselves… To begin with a detox parenthesis as it is fashionable to say. That is? Obviously eat '' mallet '' but not only ... but we do not anticipate the insights that you can find later
We just wanted to remind you that Wheat grass is always at the service of the body's wellbeing thanks to its very high concentration of active ingredients and natural nutrients able to strengthen the immune system and restore energy to body and spirit. Good Practices are something we do for ourselves to be able to offer others the Best Version of Us. And this only comes through health and balance. In what we do, we think, we eat ... above all what and how we eat
The point is not the role of food in our life but the energy vitality contained in the food we choose
Health is a question of balance. Every day we make decisions that affect our existence that can keep us in perfect balance or push us towards a downward spiral that often leads to illness. The disease is not the result of a single misstep but of a series of bad choices, each with a different name (cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, unhealthy foods, poor hygiene, stress, work environment, bad relationships, pollution,. ..). The signs of the disease, however, are known to all: fatigue, poor digestion, weight gain / loss, confused thoughts, allergies, headaches, pain in the limbs, pressure, arthritis, cardiovascular diseases up to symptoms of more serious diseases. Regardless of the type of disease, with due proportions, the process is as follows: the cells begin to lose their vital force and jam, the metabolism begins to malfunction, the organs weaken, toxins are deposited in the most weak. Up to not being able to get enough oxygen
So the health reconstruction process is similar to when we have to renovate the house and therefore, first of all, we need to do a nice and thorough cleaning. Since the house is yours, you are the '' construction manager '' and decide the speed and timing of action, but also those who '' live '' the house during the works. If you have ignored the warning signs you may find yourself in a situation where repair takes longer or even replacement. But everything always happens in front of your eyes and, either because you have minimized or ignored the signals, you inevitably arrive at a key moment: becoming aware of the fact that you have to act and perhaps the time has come to review habits and start a new one. path ... that we try to synthesize in 4 phases
1 - TO CLEAN: the path to the recovery of health starts with a major cleaning, every infestation must be checked and any damage repaired. The first thing to do is to stop the `` poisoning '' of the blood and tissues caused by a diet that creates too much acidity. To counteract a blood that is too acidic it must be alkalized with a diet based on raw foods rich in enzymes. Better to avoid foods contained in jars and cans and instead consume fresh products, if possible grown directly in the garden. In this context, the Wheat Grass is the Queen of living foods due to the fact that it concentrates all the active ingredients necessary for the balance of the organism. It's best to eliminate sugars (unless they come from fruit), use the juice extractor and blender more, and limit the microwave instead. It is time to clean up the blocked parts and restore vigor to the digestive system. Revitalize the liver for example with a manipulation or with Wheatgrass juice. The human body is a Milky Way of millions of cells that combine to form tissues and glands, every minute we breathe new atoms and expel old ones (in six weeks every liver cell is constantly renewed). What are the foods that promote this renewal? It is a matter of conscience: we must stop treating the stomach as a disposal and composting container and instead live it as if it were a garden, establishing a rising cycle that leads to rejuvenation and a balanced state of health. You will immediately notice weight loss, a more reactive mind, brighter eyes, better concentration, more energy and vitality
All treatments begin with a '' detox '' phase. Herbs of cereals, especially the Wheat Grass, thanks to the content of active chlorophyll, they behave in our body as a detergent because they detoxify the liver, cleanse the intestinal tract of impurities and re-oxygenate the blood, removing heavy metals from our body
2 - TO FEEDOnce the house is clean, it is time to rebuild and this is the new start you need. We are what we eat. Contemporary society, even in reaction to stress and frenetic rhythms, overloads the body with so much superfluous excess that it either becomes fat or remains to ferment in the intestine, creating a favorable environment for yeasts and parasites. If we want to rebuild, fresh and raw `` living foods '' are the best foods, rich in enzymes and organic.
The point is not the role of food in our life but the energy vitality contained in the food we choose
3 - REJUVENATE: once we have cleaned the house and strengthened its structure, we have time and space to choose the accessories, the furniture, the appliances. Beyond the metaphor, we need to continue the virtuous cycle of detoxification by drinking Wheatgrass juice and eating raw and fresh foods (carrots, celery, spinach, cereal herbs). But also to start or resume a regimen of physical activity. No matter the age, as long as it is constant: walking, swimming, yoga. There are those who integrate with oxygen therapy sessions and bio-magnetism, taking relaxing baths with an exfoliating effect to remove excess cells
4- TAKE CARE: taking care is not enough if it is not integrated with a feeling of love and care for oneself. The lifestyle we adopt contributes to improving health or accelerating illness. Stress is the opposite of rest, so you can't change a person's health without changing their life. The right attitude towards life is part of the cure. The environment we live in, the ability to laugh and even love are part of the cure. Love also understood as our love for ourselves. And therefore the choices we make. Healing is impossible without the right rest which is the basic foundation of health together with water and oxygen
The Wheat Grass is therefore like a natural `` Chlorophyll Cocktail '' which helps healing because it produces new blood, increases the production of hemoglobin, heals wounds, cleans the colon, carries out an anti-bacterial action, brings an alkalizing effect, neutralizes toxins, detoxifies the liver, stimulates enzymatic activity, eliminates heavy metals present in the body
Il Dr. T Shibamoto dell 'University of California discovered a powerful new antioxidant present in the Wheat Grass called 2 '' - 0-GIV, an isoflavonoid soluble in both water and fat so that it can protect cells from oxidation damage. It is much more powerful than the Vitamin E e C. Wheat grass, however, contains all three of these principles in large quantities, guaranteeing a deep protective effect. Also considered the intervention of SOD (superoxide dismutase) one of the major antioxidants and anti-aging enzymes.
Each of us has the potential to rebalance our health with the changes it brings to our personal life (this is the goal) and Wheat grass is the energy supply that accompanies this lifestyle
