The Magnificent Seven
1. Think Right
Choose health, choose life! Thinking right and making the right choices impacts each of the Magnificent 7. Omega 3 fats, B vitamins, and Magnesium all help to create a healthy, functional brain whereas stress, toxins, and poor food choices can damage or even destroy neurons.
2. Eat Right
Honour your body with only the best organic, unprocessed foods. Nine or more servings of delicious fruits and/or vegetables each day can help to alkalize your system. This improves energy efficiency and prevents chronic disease.
3. Drink Right
Our bodies, our cells and our planet are predominantly water. Pure water cleanses our body and primes nearly every biologic process. Divide your body weight by two and drink that many ounces of good, filtered water each day. Add 4 oz. for every 15 min. of intense exercise.
4. Move Right
Life is motion! Research shows 30 min. of exercise each day can help you feel better and live longer.
5. Talk Right
All healthy relationships require good communication. EVER Y one of our 100 trillion cells can communicate with every other cell. Positive speech has a positive effect on you and those around you. Lighten up, laugh more and be good to yourself.
6. Poop Right
Your body wants to eliminate toxins in a timely manner. Your food should pass within an 18-22 hour digestive cycle. Additionally, EVERY cell in your body eats, drinks and eliminates. Each of the Magnificent 7 lifestyle strategies enhance elimination.
7. Sleep Right
A good night of sleep allows you to awaken refreshed without an alarm. A good mattress; the right pillow; a quiet, dark, cool room; and comfortable sleep positions all make for quality sleep. Relax for at least one hour before going to bed. Calming herbs and/or melatonin can help those with sleep challenges.
