Nutrition & Wellness
Healthy eating is the simplest way to wellness. Creating healthy eating habits as children creates a life of wellness.
Adopted from my friend and nutritionist, Dr. Olivia, here are my benchmarks for healthy eating.
- Maintain blood sugar level – eat every 2-4 hours and pair a lean protein with a complex carbohydrate.
- No high fructose corn syrup.
- No artificial sweeteners.
- No artificial colors.
- No MSGs.
Healthy eating and a stable blood sugar level help maintain wellness and prevent sickness.
My other preventive measure is chiropractic care. My children have not had a flu shot or any medicine since we began receiving chiropractic care, nearly two years ago. It is a simple concept of wellness – when the spine is in alignment, we are at our highest functioning. Chiropractic care is preventive, alternative medicine for holistic well-being. It fits our conscious living paradigm – less is more; treating the source not the symptom is effectiveness.
