Dear Reader,

Incredibly, 75 to 90 percent of all doctors office visits are related to conditions that are the result of stress. Unchecked stress can wreak havoc on the body, and in chronic cases it can lead to heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, mental disorders, digestive disorders, and even cancer. This is possible because chronic stress changes our hormones, which can cause an increase in inflammation, which is the root of many medical problems.

We can’t always control the amount of stress that enters into our lives, but we can change how it is we react to them. The human body is designed to respond to stress, but it is how we handle it that causes the problem.

With practice, we can learn how to release some of our stress through many productive measures.

Here’s are some ways:

Exercise and Yoga
Exercise is one of the best stress relieving activities because it releases endorphins, the chemical in the brain that acts as the body’s natural pain-killer. Exercise also helps to improve sleep, which in turn helps to relieve stress.

Meditation
Meditation is proven to decrease stress, worry, and anxiety through a mindful practice of centered relaxation and breathing (breathing exercises below).

Nutrient-Dense Diet
A diet rich in essential vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, electrolytes, amino acids, and antioxidants works to help your brain handle stress, which has the same effect on the entire body.

Time in Nature
Spending time outside in nature has a calming effect on the mind and body, and it helps to create a sense of wellbeing.

Breathing exercises have long been used for stress relief. Whether you are in the car, in a tense situation, or seated in a relaxed position in a quiet space, breathing exercises have an immediate effect.

Give these exercises a try:

Pursed Lip Breathing
Take a breath for about 2 counts. Then pucker your lips and exhale for 4 counts. Do this for a few rounds.

Diaphragmatic Breathing
Put one hand on your chest and the other on your belly. As you breathe in deeply for about 2 seconds, your belly should stick out a bit. Feel the air expanding your stomach and then breathe out slowly through the lips.

Yoga Breathing
Place your right thumb over your right nostril as you breathe in through the left nostril. Then take your right ring finger and place it over your left nostril as you exhale from the right one. Then switch sides.

4-7-8
Inhale for a count of 4. Hold the breath in for 7 counts, then release it in 8 counts.epeat this at least three times.

Breath Counting
Take a few deep breaths, then settle into a pattern of “normal” breathing. When you exhale, count “one.” The next time, count “two.” Do this until you have exhaled (and counted to) five, then start the pattern over.

Dear Health Enthusiast,

The word detox might inspire images of someone starving on just lemon water and cayenne, or maybe you think of that friend that did a juice cleanse and had a migraine for three days. detox doesn’t have to be that extreme! It can simply mean that you focus your efforts on changing some of your routines to help create a more balanced mind and body.

Due to environmental exposure, our bodies can become overwhelmed by toxins that enter into your body via water, air, food, pharmaceuticals, or other drugs.

Cleansing the body does not have to be as extreme or restrictive as some diets you’ve maybe heard of, or even tried yourself. In fact, simple changes, such as considering changes to the following are great ways to start the detoxification process:

Water
Start each day with a glass of spring or filtered water and the juice of one lemon to help flush toxins and alkalize the body. Be sure to also continue drinking water throughout the day.

Vegetable Juice
Drink a freshly made vegetable juice daily that includes hearty greens such as kale and spinach helps to cleanse the cells of toxins.

Oils
Eliminate toxic oils from your diet such as vegetable, peanut, and canola. Instead, use oils high in omega-3s, -6s, and -9s, such as extra-virgin olive oil, coconut oil, hemp oil, or avocado oil.

Tea
Teas such as dandelion, milk thistle, and nettles are great for detoxification.

Raw Fruits and Vegetables
Fruit and vegetables contain enzymes that improve nutrient absorption and aid digestion.

Sugar
Avoid white sugars and any other artificial sweeteners, as they can toxify the body. Instead, opt for natural sweeteners such as stevia, honey, coconut sugar, date sugar, molasses, or maple syrup.

White Flour
Consuming white flour overworks the digestive system and can cause digestive disorders. Substitute with other flours such as spelt flour, kamut flour, quinoa flour, or brown rice flour

Kick off your morning with this Sunrise Detox Smoothie:

Ingredients
-1 frozen banana
-1/2 cup frozen mango
-1/2 cup pineapple
-1/2 cup frozen raspberries
-1 cup coconut water
-juice of one lemon

Instructions
Place ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.

This smoothie is layered to look like a sunrise, so to get that gradient effect, blend the raspberries and other fruit separately and then pour in layers to create the effect. Of course, it tastes just the same and has the same benefits if you just throw it all together too.
