It’s that time of year again, the hustle and bustle of getting the new duds, haircut, and all the different supplies! Tax free day, This sale that sale. Excitement followed by exhaustion!
What about your immune system? Are you going to send that same ‘ole immune system back this year? Kids, as well as many adults, are so busy eating on the run and fitting as much as they can into their day. Fast food, snacks and even semi-prepared dinner hits the table whether they are balanced or not. I know, I’ve been there too!
This is the perfect time to start a new routine. It isn’t an expensive one, however in the long run it will save you plenty of dough. Balancing our bodies now can get all of us achieving at our best, feeling our best, and clear that mental fog, stress and much more. Did you know that our brains are about 1/3 Omega 3s, however, we feed our bodies so little. In fact, all the foods mentioned above contain large sums of Omega 6s which turn on our acute fight or flight immune systems. Omega 3s put that fire out when it is not needed; they provide the balance. There are many studies available that actually show our IQ as a species is going down. They attribute it to nutrition, and mainly the lack of Omega 6 to 3 balance.
Balance also affects you at the cellular level. Your cell membranes are made up of Omega 6s and 3s. If your version of the Standard American Diet (SAD diet) is loaded with Omega 6s, your membranes are stiff, not letting nutrition in, and not allowing the waste to exit. Adding Omega 3s makes the membrane permeable and allows for absorption and expelling.
Give it a try for 4 months, that is actually how long it takes for red blood cells to regenerate healthy new balanced ones. We have a third party test which is anonymous that you can do at home and send it off in the mail. Results are available to you online. It is never too early to begin being proactive about your immunity and quality of life.
