PREVENTATIVE HEALTH

I’m extremely passionated about Holistic Health and Preventative Health. Because why should we go around waiting until we become sick and then living the last many years of our life being in pain and being sick? When you instead can focus on preventative health throughout your entire life and live a happy, healthy life where you feel fresh in both body and mind all life! 🥦✨🌿

The amount of people getting lifestyle diseases has risen so much in the last couple of years – type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, stroke etc., which is so sad.

And as we have just seen with the recent virus, the people who were more susceptible to it, were people with already underlying diseases.

So why go around waiting until you become sick? Why not start right now and take action to better your health and well-being, so that you can live a long, happy and healthy life?

I’m always telling my boyfriend that I want to become over a 100 and still be moving around, doing yoga, playing around with grandchildren at that time and living and enjoying life. THAT is my ultimate goal in life – to be able to live and enjoy life to the fullest my entire life!

I don’t want to spend my last years in pain. Which is why I want to take good care of myself and my health and well-being already now and my entire life, so that I can prevent getting sick.

But what is “Preventative Health”?

It’s where you focus on preventing sickness.

Instead of going around waiting to you become sick and then going to the doctor. Then take your power into your own hands.

You can change your life by changing your lifestyle! Eat more veggies and whole foods, move your body more, get fresh air, laugh and have fun with those you love, do the things you love and are passionated about, rest and relax more!

DELICIOUS GREEN SMOOTHIE RECIPE

green smoothie

I’ve been wanting to drink green smoothies more often for a long time now, but I just haven’t really found the right recipe. I’ve tried Greenwitch smoothies, which is such a lovely company where you can get green smoothies delivered every week, but I wanted to be able to do it at home so I could do it a bit cheaper. However, if you have the money I can recommend checking out Julie’s business.

Here you go: A delicious, healthy green smoothie recipe!

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 avocado
  • the juice of half to one lemon
  • 2 cm of chopped ginger
  • 4-6 portions of frozen spinach
  • some rice milk
  • water+ can be added to boost your smoothie; grinded flaxseeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, oils, spirulina, wheatgrass etc.

The old saying goes “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. But, I don’t really think one apple is enough, most of us need to eat A LOT more greens to be healthy and thriving, so I think we should change the old saying to:

“A green smoothie a day, keeps the doctor away”

Are you drinking green smoothies? Or would you like to join me and start getting some more vitamins and nutrients into your body? Then try this recipe! Ps, if you are going to start making smoothies, then I’ll recommend buying some stainless steel straws instead of using plastic straws

HEALTHY LIFESTYLE TIPS

It’s January and a new year, and there’s no better time to start getting into lots of healthy habits to live your best life! I fully agree that we are all different, and that it might not be in your interest to get into healthy habits, I completely respect that. But, I do want to say that if you want to feel better, look better, feel more energised and productive and hopefully also feel much better once you get older – then these are some of the tips that might help you achieve all of that!

Here you go, some healthy lifestyle tips:

 

Get enough sleep

Preferably 7-8 hours each night, and the best is to get to bed before 10pm. Turn of the television and electronics at least 1 hour before going to bed since the electric blue light disturbs your body and makes it harder for you to fall asleep. Read a book, or have a good talk with a loved one instead.

 

Eat alkaline food

Eat plenty of vegetables and beans! Especially the green vegetables (broccoli, spinach, kale etc.).

Highly alkaline food: 
– green vegetables
– green salad and seaweed
– potatoes
– sprouts, nuts and seeds
– sesame- and flax seeds
– almonds and brazil nuts
– pumpkin seeds and coconut
– garlig, turmeric and ginger
– avocado
– herbal teas, green and white tea
– olive-, coconut- and flaxseeds oil
 

 

Avoid acidic food

Meat, sugar, candy, sodas. If your body gets too much acidic food it creates an unhealthy and inflamed environment in your body where sickness, pain and overweight can grow.

Very acidic food: 
– meat
– eggs
– sugar and honey
– artificial sweeteners
– vinegar
– dairy products – especially cheese
– industrial processed food
– junkfood
– margarine
– frying oil
– candy and cakes
– alcohol
– black tea and ordinary coffee
– sodas
– fruitjuice
– energy and sportsdrinks

 

Drink lemon water 

When you wake up in the morning drink some hot water with the juice from half a lemon. This helps the digestion and it detoxes the body. After drinking this wait at least 1/2 hour before eating breakfast.

 

Drink lots of water during the day, but not while you are eating 

Drink 2 litres of water or more during the day, but not while you are eating since this disturbs the digestion process and the absorption of the nutrients from the food.

 

Chew your food thoroughly and eat slowly 

Chew your food until it becomes liquid before you swallow it. If you don’t chew the food enough, acid will be created in the body.

 

Exercise – move your body 

Move your body, get your pulse up and sweat out all the toxins from your body. Moving, fx through yoga, also massages your organs and makes your body function better and creates more blood flow and improves digestion. It also releases endorphins which is a “happy hormone”, which makes you feel happier.

 

Drink herbal tea 

Switch the coffee out with some herbal tea (fx green tea).

 

Mental health

Think happy and nice thoughts about yourself. Start to really love yourself and your body just as it is right now. Think that you want to take good care of your body by filling it with lots of healthy food, so it will be fresh and healthy all your life. Look yourself in the mirror each day and tell yourself that you love you <3

 

Do things that you love 

Read, relax, go for a walk in nature, dance, talk, go to a spa a sauna – do things that makes you happy and spend your time with people who makes you feel good and who you love.

 

Take care of your body 

Use natural products, and smear your body into oils. Drybrush your skin. Give yourself a nice oil massage on the body, in the face and your scalp Take a nice bath, scrub your skin. Just relax.

 

These were some of my favourite health tips for taking good care of oneself and ones body. I do want to notice that it’s all about balance. There’s no health in restricting yourself to only eat vegetables all the time, listen to your body and treat yourself once in a while as well, that is also healthy for your soul.
