General Health Update:

“The Power of Antioxidants”

What are antioxidants you ask? Antioxidants are key nutritional components of plant based foods that act as enzymes to break down free radicals or toxins absorbed or produced by the body on a daily basis. Antioxidants also provide energy to the bodies cells enhancing their functions in order to keep the body operating at optimal capacity. Fresh plant based foods are the mot potent source of these vitalizing and protective allies. Vegetables and fruits are an essential part of keeping your health and restoring your health. When the body has less acidic byproducts from heavy meats and carbohydrates it is more alkaline and oxygenated. This state of alkalinity primes the bodies defenses and creates the environment required to produce more energy than the energy it loses when constantly managing toxins and low grade daily inflammation that is responsible for the pace that cells age.

If you’re looking for your own personal superpower, then antioxidants are your secret mojo. The goal is to eat as many colors of the light spectrum as possible. Dark leafy greens, deep reds, and violets are especially powerful detoxifiers and cell rejuvenators. Bright orange, yellow, and red are immune enhancing and effective microvascular nourishment. These brain activating foods and herbs really help do the work for your body the more balanced they are in your daily regimen. This way your body can focus more on utilizing itself for your activities in life and less on damage control from the build up of body stresses.

Faiz Healing Power Plant Food Favorites include Kale, Spinach, Mixed Salad Greens, Heirloom Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, Winter Squash, Purple Grapes, Cherries, and Oranges.

#1 Winter Restoration and Vitality SuperStar

In the cold days of winter, it is common to feel a slowing of our bodies and minds in response to the seasonal impressions. Now is a time in nature that exhibits going within for deep restoration and reflection at our rooted core and consideration of how we seek to grow and revive when spring returns. If you are feeling more sluggish, unmotivated, less focused, or slow to healing injuries, Bone Broth is an excellent remedy to include in a weekly diet. For centuries, bone broth has been used for the convalescence of those with moderate to severe illness or bodily injury to expedite the process of healing at a cellular level. Bone Broth has been getting more and more attention with recent dietary protocols and collagen supplementation for many health benefits but none of these concepts are new. The ancient Chinese relied on bone broth as a primary form of treatment blended with various herbal plant medicines to have an even more focused effect.
