SECRET WEAPON: OLIVE LEAF EXTRACT
I feel like everyone around me is sick, spring colds? weak immune systems? stressed? fatigued? lack of sleep? negative emotions?...all of these can bring rise to cold/flus and weakened bodily systems. That is why we ALWAYS have to be taking care of our precious bodies as they do SO much for us day in/day out. They truly are miracles running every single day. We must show it some love. Are you with me?
Enter in my secret weapon: OLIVE LEAF EXTRACT (juicing and vitamineral greens, of course, are my #1) but this baby I use for extra defense. Do to all the bugs flying around me with the people I am closest to, I was afraid of being attacked by 'something', due to my condition and healing journey my body numerically + medically has a VERY low immune system, and I mean super low. My natural doctor couldn't believe how low my numbers were....YET I've been the only one out of all my family, friends to rarely catch a cold/flu. I am talking maybe 2-3 in the past 5 years, I am also never fatigued! This just goes to show you + even myself how IMPORTANT it is to keep our bodies fed with whole nutrient dense foods, and to live a healthy lifestyle: body, mind and spirit. It is not just what you put into your body it is your environment, career, physical exercise routine, and spirituality - how do you feed your soul. All of these combined make up your health and wellness. They can't exist without the other. I sometimes even amaze myself how powerful my lifestyle is and how my body is able to fight things off, even when the 'medical numbers' and labs show it is way below average! HEALTH IS WEALTH.
In any case! These past few days I have been taking a shot (TBSP) of this baby (with a squeeze of lemon - it is very bitter even though it is peppermint flavor) as I felt a sore throat coming on, and BOOM today I feel amazing and am lacing my shoes to hit the gym for a good jump rope and walk. NOW don't get my wrong this is not a miracle worker, I still have my green juices w/ vitamineral greens every morning, and eat heaps of whole foods and superfoods during the day, BUT I do believe this kicked it up a notch. I also made sure I got a good 9 hours of sleep in the past few days. Sleep is a key factor too! I make sure I rest, switch of all electronics by 930, and catch up on all my books that I have to crack. Reading is one of my obsessions for sure.
