Healthy Inside/Healthy Outside

Healthy Blood – Strong Body – Strong Heart

Your entire body is built and supported by your blood; your tissues, organs, cells and every other tiny piece of you. Healthy blood of course leads to a healthy body.
Your blood needs oxygen, iron and other minerals and vitamins especially including a complex of B vitamins.

You can oxygenate your blood simply by breathing fully and slowly and by taking time each day to fit in a deep breathing exercise and by being physically active. Daily exercise such as a brisk walk of at least 20 minutes per day will help.

The best way to “feed” your blood the vitamins and minerals it needs is primarily through food and secondary would be supplements.

Increase your consumption of iron rich beans and legumes (peas, peanuts, and lentils); these also have lots of blood cleansing fiber that helps filter your blood.
Eating plenty of fresh greens daily helps build your hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells which carries oxygen.
Spices, specifically cinnamon and cayenne speeds purification, lowers blood pressure and helps with blood sugar balance.
Dandelion root cleans your liver which in turn will filter your blood more efficiently. You can drink it as a tea and find dandelion root tea in most health food stores and some grocery stores.

Make your body more alkaline: [the SAD diet (Standard American Diet) is high in acid forming foods] by decreasing your consumption of sugar, soda, meat and processed foods and increasing fruit and vegetables such as lemon, limes & grapefruit, avocado, coconut, seeds, nuts beans and quinoa and other similar whole grains you can bring better acid-alkaline balance to your blood.

Quit smoking. Smoking pollutes your blood which increases your risk of illness and disease, from the common everyday illnesses to more serious illness such as cancer, lung diseases and heart disease by weakening your immune system.

Live life to the fullest and begin by having healthy blood, a strong body and a healthy heart!
