Many people are now planning their spring and summer vacations. They are spending lots of money on airfare, hotels, local attractions and activities and. . . .food.
But what if that food does not agree with you? Have you ever been away on vacation and had to walk around, trying to enjoy yourself while feeling nausea or stomach cramping? Or worse yet, stuck in an expensive hotel room feeling badly while everyone else is out having a good time?
How about some planning that will help avoid those vacation stomach episodes?
I recommend packing some digestive supplements just in case a disagreement arises between you and your vacation food. Here are some good items to consider:
Comprised of ginger, peppermint and anise, this product offers fast relief from an upset stomach.
This product provides digestive enzymes that help to process hard-to-digest foods, those that are eaten rarely and those that usually cause digestion issues.
This is an excellent probiotic that helps to replenish and maintain healthy bacteria in the digestive tract. It is essential on a vacation when upset turns to diarrhea. It is a good idea to take it daily, on vacation or not, to maintain a healthy gut.
Get on board for a fun, comfortable vacation. Buy all three here.Buy all three here. Buy all three here.
It’s that after-Thanksgiving feeling. I’ve eaten too much. I feel bloated, overweight and miserable. What’s more, my stomach and digestive system feel overworked, tired and ill-functioning. Can you relate? Do I need a cleanse?
What do I do? How do I fix this? Is there a remedy?
There are some things that I can do to get back on track.
Drink plenty of water. Giving my body enough fluids will help it to function better all the way around. I am probably dehydrated from all the activity that happened around Thanksgiving.
Make better eating choices. Certainly backing off the pies and deserts is important. I also will be eating more plant-based foods. While I always avoid beef and pork, I will limit other animal proteins as well.
Exercise more. Thanksgiving week got me off my workout routine, so I will resume my personal program to get my body functioning better.
I will be doing a cleanse next week. It will give my body a good rest from all the excessive and rich food. I will also be better prepared of the rest of the holiday season’s traps of opportunities to over indulge.
Here is a 1 minute video to explain the cleanse I am planning. Watch now.
Earth Day is approaching. It means more than going out and buying a roll of “earth friendly” toilet paper. It is using the recycle bin every day. It involves using products that are grown, harvested and produced in a way that is not causing stress on the earth. Earth friendly products are brought to us with methods that actually enhance the health of our planet.
The Shaklee Corporation was the very first company to be certified as Climate Neutral by reducing our carbon emissions to zero.
What to do for Earth Day?
Reduce your personal chemical load.
For your body, ask about our 5 x 5 Reset program to detox harmful chemicals out. It only takes 5 days to reset your body and start your Earth Day participation from the inside out.
For the environment, order the Get Clean Starter Kit. This kit is highly concentrated and very effective at cleaning your home from the kitchen to the laundry to the bathroom-and all other rooms and areas in between. The actual retail value of conventional products from the local big box store that will do this much cleaning is $3400.00. Click the pictures below and you will see the cost of this kit which is so appropriate for Earth Day.
Diets are very high on the list of topics these days. Many people are so fixated on the loss of weight, they loose track of the true goal: being healthier. While weight loss is a great goal, when not done properly, the work and effort is all in vain. Maybe a detox is better.
Diet vs. Detox
When toxins are in the body, which we all have a lot of them, the body produces fat to “encase” the toxin as a protective measure.
A diet that concentrates on weight loss can cause the toxins to be exposed when fat is lost (if fat is actually lost in the diet; oftentimes it is muscle that is lost in a traditional diet.) This exposure of toxins can have negative affects. It also means a higher concentration of toxins in a smaller body after weight loss.
Detox / Cleanse
On the other hand, when one goes through a cleanse or detox program, the goal is to rid the body of toxins along with weight loss. This will result in a lower concentration of toxins in a smaller body, which is the desired result. It also means the body will not re-enlist fat to encase the newly exposed toxins, as is the case with the typical diet.
The rebound effect is much less likely after a detox than that program that focuses only on weight loss.
If you find that fish are too expensive or you don’t like to eat fish, you might consider supplementing your food intake with fish oil. That can be a tricky proposition, what with all the the sketchy products out there. Make sure your choice is one that is free of heavy metals and other contaminates. Sometimes fish oil supplements will cause a smelly, distasteful digestion. Shaklee omega 3’s contain a very beneficial odor control component.
Maintain a healthy heart and cardiovascular system* with the concentrated, ultra-pure omega 3 fatty acids in OmegaGuard®.
Why fish oil?
Besides heart health, Omega 3’s are so beneficial for inflammation, joint health and even brain functioning. Do whatever you can to get omega 3’s into your diet. While eating fish is great, as mentioned above, it can be expensive and there is much controversy over the “cleanliness” of fish. Which is better, farm-raised or wild-caught fish? Using a quality supplement like OmegaGuard takes the guessing out of farm vs. wild and clean vs. toxic.
Why Shaklee fish oil?
OmegaGuard is cold processed to preserve the integrity of the omega 3 fatty acids. Because fish oil can contain a lot of contaminates, Shaklee takes extra care to use small species of fish that have a shorter life span and do not build up toxins. The processing operations include a triple distillation that maintains the viability of the fish oil and its benefits to the body. Buy it now!
