If you want to live a spectacular life, it is critical to have a lot of energy and excellent health.
In simple terms the human body has three vital needs:
Without oxygen our brains die within minutes. Oxygen is also vital for the life of every cell in our bodies. It makes sense that oxygenating our bodies correctly is a critical part of our health. Unfortunately many people do not oxygenate (breathe) properly or exercise regularly, which means our bodies are not in the habit of taking in enough oxygen. When we don’t breathe properly our brain function is limited.
Without water our bodies die within a few days. Hydration is second only to oxygen in importance for our bodies. Most people do not drink enough water. We need around 2.5 liters of water per day for optimal hydration. A good rule of thumb is that if your urine has any color in it at all, you are dehydrated. Drink enough so your urine is always clear. If you ever have a dry mouth you are severely dehydrated.
Because the longest you go without water is when you are asleep, you should always have a big drink of water as soon as you wake up. This is a very simple way of giving your body what it needs.
It’s cheap, it’s easy and it’s good for you – drink lots of water!
Incidentally caffeine is a diuretic (its net effect is to take water out of your system) – bad!
Without food our bodies die in about six weeks. Clearly nutrition is the third most important key to life.
One small section cannot do justice to the world of nutrition. However from my extensive reading and research I will offer my suggestions on eating in the healthiest way possible:
- The closer to nature your food is, the better it will be for you.
- Home-grown and raw top the list. Start a home vegetable garden if you can.
- Try not to eat anything your grandmother would never have heard of (read the ingredient list of products at your supermarket to see what I mean).
- The more processed the item, the worse it is for you.
- Almost all fast food is detrimental to your health.
Nutrition is a key to you and your family’s health. If you want to live a long and healthy life, take time to understand your food and don’t take short-cuts.
If you are tired and run down a lot, and you get too many colds and the flu, you may need to take particular note of this page.
