Supplements for Wellness


Last week we talked a lot about getting rid of toxic influences in our lives.  Just as you would never try to improve someone’s lung health while not working to help them quit smoking first, we try to help people eliminate known toxins from their homes, diet, and lifestyle before we begin to build them a program to give them proper nutrition.  This is the first step to wellness.

So this week we are ready to start talking about things we need to add to our lives to improve wellness.  I have mentioned it before in several posts but I believe it is so important to commit ourselves to a lifestyle change, not a diet.  We need a new way of eating.  For me, I need it to be simple, yummy, affordable, and convenient.

The system that is working for me is this:

1. I try to eat homemade foods that are unprocessed, unpackaged, and fresh.  I plan my menus once a week to include fresh, organic, locally grown fruits and vegetables ,Pastured meats/poultry, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, and coconut oil.

2.  My beverages include unsweetened decaffeinated tea, Sparkling water, NingXia Red, and Water.  To these I add essential oils as desired.

3.  I eat when I am hungry.  I don’t measure anything.  I have a free meal once a week where I enjoy treats that are not on my eating plan.  I do not eat after 8PM.

I also use a few supplements.  According to Dr. Jim Bob Haggerton, a Chiropractor in Texas, there are 4 core supplements that we are not able to get in our diets.  This is due to soil depletion and inadequate supplies of food.

These are the supplements I use:

  1. NingXia Red-This sweet and tangy drink’s formula includes wolfberry, which is touted for its health benefits. Also featuring plum, aronia, cherry, blueberry, and pomegranate juices and extracts, Young Living’s NingXia Red is packed with superfoods to support overall wellness.In addition to these antioxidant ingredients, NingXia Red’s formula includes pure vanilla extract and Lemon, Orange, Yuzu, and Tangerine essential oils for a great-tasting, healthy treat.Young Living NingXia Red benefits include support for energy levels, normal cellular function, and whole-body and normal eye health. A daily shot of 2–4 ounces helps support overall wellness with powerful antioxidants.
  2. Life 5--A high-potency probiotic, Life 5™ represents the culmination of years of extensive research. Life 5 builds and restores core intestinal health by providing five clinically proven probiotic strains including two advanced super strains to enhance intestinal health, sustain energy and improve immunity. Life 5 contains 10 billion active cultures and improves colonization up to 10 times. This probiotic helps balance gut flora.  According to Dr. Haggerton, the good bacteria in our gut help us create Serotonin which is a neurotransmitter that helps us with normal brain chemistry.
  3. Omegagize--OmegaGize³™ combines the power of three core daily supplements-omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D-3, and CoQ10 (ubiquinone). These supplements combine with our proprietary enhancement essential oil blend to create an omega-3, DHA-rich fish oil supplement that may support general wellness. Used daily these ingredients work synergistically to support normal brain, heart, eye, and joint health.*
  4. Multigreens-MultiGreens™ is a nutritious chlorophyll formula designed to boost vitality by working with the glandular, nervous, and circulatory systems.  MultiGreens is made with spirulina, alfalfa sprouts, barley grass, bee pollen, eleuthero, Pacific kelp, and therapeutic-grade essential oils.

This is the nutrition plan that is working for my body to promote health and vitality as well as help me with body composition.  With this plan I have been able to increase lean body mass and decrease my body fat percentage.  Staying well hydrated is key.
