 It can be a challenge to establish good health habits with today’s hectic lifestyle.

Many  people live with chronic conditions and neglect their health until a health crisis–such as celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity–forces us to examine how we live and make some serious changes. The right efforts can take our health to the next level.
The practices we develop require time and effort, but the rewards are worthwhile. Positive lifestyle changes can move you towards a healthier, happier you.

Lets discuss three natural cures that are not only simple but EFFECTIVE!!!

1. Drink two big glasses of water (8-12 oz) first thing each morning.  

Why? Your body functions better when you’re well hydrated.  Water greatly improves bowel function. Even if you’re not thirsty, drink the water. Your body will thank you for it. This is a realistic first step that EVERYONE can do!  At least try this for 5-7 days..

2. Eat an anti-inflammatory diet.

It’s simple.  Every food you ingest is either anti-inflammatory or inflammatory.  At the cellular level, all degenerative diseases involve inflammation inside the cell. Inflammation is the harmful process linked to diabetes, obesity, cancer, autoimmune conditions, arthritis, heart disease, stroke, thyroid disorders, migraines and more.
Put a stop to inflammation with anti-inflammatory foods (fruits, vegetables, lean protein, healthy fats, like omega-3s, etc.) and limit or avoid inflammatory foods/beverages (sugar, grains, GMOs, food additives and preservatives, unhealthy fats, like omega-6s and trans fats, alcohol etc.).  Stomp out inflammation before it creates chronic problems you can avoid.

3. Take the first step.

The path to better health is a process. You’ll have victories as well as setbacks on the road to wellness, but if you don’t take the first step you will never know how “well” you can feel. Don’t be discouraged by the setbacks. The important thing is to stay engaged in your journey to achieve better health. Never give up!

Part of your journey is to learn as much as you can along the way.
