The Minnesota Chiropractic Association met last month and came up with healthy eating habits for everyone to adopt. These simple changes to your nutrition will help make your body a great defense mechanism against sickness and pain.
- Eat more raw foods – many of the enzymes and micronutrients embedded in our whole foods are destroyed when we cook, can, or microwave our foods. These enzymes are used to help with digestion.
- Go Organic – avoid pesticides and toxicities with organic foods.
- Eat Healthy Fats – add large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids whenever possible. These can be found in foods such as avocados, fish oil, grass fed animals, nuts, omega-3 eggs.
- Drink More Water – it is recommended that you drink half your body weight of water in ounces per day. This does not include drinks made from water. If you drink coffee or tea, then add 3 cups of water for every cup of coffee or tea in addition to the above amount.
I hope these simple health tips help build up your bodies own defense mechanism. Wishing you good luck and great health.
