It's Not What You Consume, It's What You ABSORB!

Dollarphotoclub_72469858.jpg

Have you ever wondered how our body processes the nutrients we put into it?

Most people think their body absorbs all the good nutrients from the things they eat and drink, however, our digestive system is a bit more complicated . As Victoria Freeman states in Experience Life, “Consuming the right foods is not the end of the nutritional story, and just because something makes it to your stomach doesn’t mean your body will actually use it as you intended.”

“Whether they’re from food or supplements, nutrients aren’t technically in your body until they’ve been absorbed,” explains Stella Volpe, PhD, RD, Associate Professor of Nursing and Miriam Stirl Term Endowed Chair in Nutrition at the University of Pennsylvania. “Until absorption, things are just passing through.”

Vitamins and minerals can be absorbed in ways besides just eating, including directly through your skin, however the most common way is through your mouth. The absorption process begins as you chew and continues through your esophagus and throughout your digestive system, but the majority occurs in the upper portion of your small intestine. Your body breaks down the foods and liquids you intake and pushes it along to the small intestine for absorption through its walls into your bloodstream.

EarthWater is comprised of 70+ life essential 100% natural trace minerals provided by it’s proprietary blend of fulvic & humic compounds which turns the water black and gives it a natural 9.5 pH. This mineral composition helps the human body hydrate better, absorb nutrients faster and replenish electrolytes well beyond regular water.

Generally scientists agree, the most effective way for our body to absorb much needed vitamins and minerals is by consuming them in liquid form like EarthWater, versus a solid form such as food or pill supplements.

By drinking just one bottle of EarthWater a day you are providing your body its much needed nutrients and hydration vital in living a healthy life.

From large corporations to regular people like you and I, living sustainably is the cool new thing to do. I’ve been working very hard this year to help people realize that going green is not that difficult and that truly, The Future Is Green. By visiting schools and speaking to children, I am able to help nurture the importance of living sustainably at a young age. I am dedicating this post to sharing four simple steps on living green. First, let’s start with why this matters.

There is insurmountable evidence that climate change is real and caused by humans. Even if you don’t believe this, why in good conscience would you want to leave behind trash? Let’s leave nature as the pristine beauty it deserves to stay!  

1.              Discard old/expired medications appropriately. Never flush them down the drain where they can end up in the water supply. Many pharmacies offer free disposal services.

2.              Decline Styrofoam to-go containers. Styrofoam is very expensive to recycle which is why many facilities don’t even accept it. Request foil or a reusable plastic container if you have to.

3.              Support green businesses. As consumers, we have the power of the dollar and we should hold large corporations to high standards of environmental ethics. Let’s all band together to support business and companies that take sustainability and our health seriously.

4.              Reusable straws! Many restaurants have banned plastic straws. An easy alternative is using a reusable bamboo or metal straw.  

I hope this information opens your world to sustainable living. These are just a few of the simple and quick ways we can each be socially responsible citizens of Earth.

5 Nutrients You’re Deficient In… If You Eat Too Much Sugar

sugar-640.jpg

by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD

When we talk about eating too much sugar, the conversation usually revolves around excessive energy intake, empty calories, blood glucose and insulin spikes, or increased risk of chronic diseases (like diabetes, cancer, and heart disease). But, there’s actually another huge problem that gets less airtime in the sugar discussion: micronutrient deficiencies!

It turns out, a high intake of sugar can contribute to nutrient deficiencies in ways other than by displacing more nutritious foods. We’ve discovered a number of mechanisms by which sugar can actually deplete (or reduce the absorption) of certain vitamins and minerals. As a result, eating too much sugar can induce deficiencies, even when our overall micronutrient intake appears to be adequate.

So, which nutrients suffer on a high-sugar diet? Let’s take a look!

1. Vitamin D

It’s no secret that vitamin D deficiency is a big problem these days (especially for those living far from the equator), but lack of sun exposure isn’t the only cause. Excessive sugar intake (especially in the form of fructose) may actually exacerbate vitamin D deficiency!

How does it work? Researchers have discovered that a high intake of fructose can increase the expression of an enzyme responsible for degrading vitamin D (24-hydroxylase), while also decreasing the expression of an enzyme that helps synthesize vitamin D (1α-hydroxylase). As a result, fructose can enhance the breakdown of vitamin D in the kidneys while also impairing the body’s ability to synthesize it. The result is a reduction in vitamin D levels, and the potential for the harmful effects of deficiency to manifest (such as greater susceptibility to infection, higher risk of autoimmunity, increased rates of certain cancers, and overall lower immune function). No wonder 75% of people in Western countries are deficient in vitamin D!

And, it gets worse! Vitamin D deficiency and a high fructose intake can enter a vicious cycle, because low levels of vitamin D can actually exacerbate the inflammatory properties of fructose. Multiple studies have shown that vitamin D depletion increases non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) induced by fructose, and that vitamin D plays a crucial role in quelling the inflammation caused by high-fructose, Western-style diets. Historically, vitamin D levels would naturally be higher during sunny months when higher-fructose foods (like fruit) were in season. But, now that we have year-round access to nearly any food (and year-round roofs over our heads preventing sun exposure!), the potential for vitamin D and fructose to antagonize each other is greater than it’s ever been.

2. Calcium

Calcium is famous for supporting skeletal health (including bones and teeth), as well as assisting in blood coagulation and acting as an electrolyte (helping nerves send signals and muscles contract). But, calcium is another nutrient negatively impacted by a high sugar intake!

Here’s how it works. Normally, vitamin D helps facilitate calcium absorption by regulating active calcium transport in the small intestine (a process that becomes even more important when calcium intake is on the low side, or when calcium requirements increase—such as during growth or lactation). Because the process is greatly dependent on blood levels of vitamin D3, the vitamin-D-lowering effects of fructose can have a ripple effect on calcium, causing our bodies to be unable to absorb as much as we need from dietary sources. That spells trouble during times when we need calcium the most, like during pregnancy or when we’re trying to heal broken bones.

And, along with fructose, a high intake of another form of sugar (glucose) has been shown to increase calcium excretion by the kidneys, through several proposed mechanisms (inhibiting tubular reabsorption of calcium, and possibly suppressing parathyroid hormone from the spiked blood sugar and insulin that comes after a high-sugar meal). Yikes!

3. Magnesium

Magnesium is a serious rock-star mineral that’s only started receiving the attention it deserves in recent years. Along with regulating muscle and nerve function, making protein, building bone, synthesizing DNA, and regulating blood sugar levels, magnesium is required by literally every organ in our bodies. In other words, it’s pretty important!

Both a high sugar intake and elevated insulin levels (which can result from a high intake of refined carbohydrates, including sugar) have been shown to increase the excretion of magnesium by the kidneys, by inhibiting tubular reabsorption (the same process that leads to calcium excretion) and by guzzling through the body’s magnesium reserves during sugar metabolism. That’s partly why people with diabetes or chronically high insulin tend to have higher magnesium requirements and more rapid magnesium depletion.

In fact, the interaction between sugar and magnesium is a two-way street: along with sugar depleting magnesium, magnesium plays a role in stabilizing blood sugar (by influencing cellular uptake of glucose and insulin secretion). So, when magnesium levels are too low, blood sugar regulation can also be impaired—setting the stage for even greater magnesium depletion due to the higher levels of glucose in the blood!

4. Chromium

Chromium is a trace mineral involved in macronutrient metabolism and blood sugar control, and although we only need small amounts of it to be healthy, a high sugar intake can increase the likelihood of deficiency. Consuming excessive amounts of simple sugars causes more chromium to be excreted in the urine (in one study, eating a diet of 35% simple sugars increased chromium excretion from 10% at baseline to 300%). The effect has been pinpointed to the insulinogenic properties of refined sugars, and the impact of elevated insulin on chromium loss.

Like with magnesium, chromium and sugar have an interactive effect due to chromium’s role in blood sugar regulation. Just as a high sugar intake can contribute to chromium deficiency, chromium deficiency can contribute to poor glucose tolerance and higher blood sugar levels (since adequate chromium is needed for insulin binding, increasing the insulin receptor number, and insulin receptor phosphorylation).

5. Vitamin C

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that humans are pretty weird (hey, its true!), and one of our quirks involves vitamin C. Out of all the mammals in the world, only a handful (including humans) are unable to synthesize their own vitamin C. (The reason is due to a mutation in the GULO (gulonolactone oxidase) gene, which codes a protein needed for converting glucose into vitamin C.)

So, what does this have to do with high-sugar diets? Both glucose and vitamin C use the same transporters to enter cells, and research has shown that high levels of glucose (whether in the intestines or in the blood) can slow down or limit the absorption of vitamin C by our bodies. The Glucose Ascorbate Antagonism theory, proposed by Dr. John Ely in the 1970s, describes the competition between vitamin C and glucose—where elevated glucose restricts vitamin C from entering cells (ultimately leading to reduced immune function).

Fortunately, many higher-sugar whole foods (like fruit) are naturally high in vitamin C, helping offset these effects. But, the same protection isn’t there when it comes to excessive intakes of refined sweeteners like white sugar and high-fructose corn syrup!

So, Should We Avoid All Sugar?

As I’ve discussed previously, smaller and occasional intakes of sugar are unlikely to be harmful. It’s the chronically high intakes typical of the Standard American Diet—not the occasional sweet treat or sugar-containing recipe—that we start to damage our health and raise our risk of a variety of modern diseases.

 

But, the fact that sugar (glucose and fructose) can deplete our bodies of essential nutrients is a good one to keep in the back of our heads as we go about our days making decisions on what to eat! If you’re someone who find themselves reaching for a sweetened treat frequently, that could be doing your body some harm even if that treat falls under the Paleo umbrella.

 

Yet, the takeaway isn’t to avoid anything containing sugar, but to focus on whole foods whenever possible, and emphasize nutrient-dense sources of sugar like berries and blackstrap molasses when we do want something sweet!

What’s the deal with pH? Is Alkaline Water good for me?

You may have heard of the words “high alkaline” around recent diet fads or specialty drinks and wondered “What does this really mean? “ 

Ph WATER.jpg

Let’s start with understanding water pH and acidity.

What is pH?

pH is a numeric scale used to specify the acidity or basicity of an aqueous solution.  The scale runs from 0 to 14.  The lower number on the scale is an indicator of higher acidity.  The higher the number on the scale is an indicator it is more basic, or alkaline.  Processed foods and products like yogurt, fish and cheese are typically more acidic while vegetables like beets, bell peppers and kale are considered higher in alkaline. 

What does pH have to do with water?

Pure water is considered a neutral-located in the middle of the scale, usually with a pH of 7.  Unfortunately, not all water is pure and is rarely ever at this actual level.  The pH levels of water change because there are many factors which can affect the acidity and alkalinity of water.  The first and most prominent is the bedrock and soil composition where the water is located. Depending on the rock type, acidity in the water may be neutralized.  However, plant growth and organic material located near the water can increase acidity due to the emission of carbon dioxide when decomposition occurs.  Other factors include the dumping of chemicals and acid precipitation.

pH levels in drinking water are monitored closely and are required to be kept in a range of 6.5-8.5 by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). If not regulated carefully, the effects of drinking acidic or alkaline water can be harmful.  When water is below a pH level of 7, it has a corrosive quality to it. This means it could contain iron, copper, lead or zinc from plumbing or other metal fixtures and can have a bitter or metallic taste. 

How does pH impact our bodies and overall health?

The importance of water pH is to keep your body in balance and to regulate metabolic processes.  Being either too alkaline or too acidic can be detrimental to your health.  A diet high in acidity can lead to weight gain, slower immune responses and susceptibility to disease.  A diet too alkaline can lead to the inability to metabolize key nutrients.  Our bodies are constantly working to achieve a balanced pH level.  The food we eat, the liquids we drink and even the emotions we feel are all contributing to our bodies pH level.

EarthWater has an average pH level of 9.25 to 10.5 and is one of the highest natural pH waters available on the market.  With its 70+ life essential natural trace minerals,  EarthWater helps the body hydrate better, absorb nutrients faster and replenish electrolytes well beyond regular water.

Your body will truly thank you for it!  Learn more at earthwater.com.  We would love to help you get your body back in balance and on the road to better health!

NASCAR Drivers: Why Hydration is Critical!

A. Day No.23 Car.jpg

Race car interiors get hot, very hot. Drivers wear multiple layers of clothing, gloves, helmets and leather all designed to keep fire out, which keeps the heat in. Keeping a driver cool during a long, hot race isn’t easy. 

During a two to three hour race, a driver can lose up to 10 pounds of water, and if he/she is not replenishing, it can hurt their performance.  When driving around the track at over 150 mph, reaction time is critical.  Proper hydration is essential to maintaining a continuous and instantaneous response time.

When you become dehydrated, it can take hours or even days to fully recover. 

EarthWater has been the water of choice for many drivers because of its all natural 9.5 -10.5 pH, 70+ trace minerals, high molecular oxygen and the most powerful antioxidants in the world.  

With zero sugar or artificial flavors, no preservatives or chemicals and zero calories or carbohydrates, EarthWater helps you hydrate better and recover faster!

Fatigue? Muscle Pain? Fibromyalgia? EarthWater has your back!

Fibromyalgia (FMS) is a complex health condition. While doctors and researchers are learning more about it and taking it more seriously, there’s a lot we still don’t know. Millions of people (including a staggering 3.4% of adult women) struggle with fibromyalgia, a pain disorder once dismissed as a made-up problem.

The good news is doctors now treat fibromyalgia and recognize it as a real health condition.    While you may not be able to completely “cure” FMS, there are many things you can do to reduce or even alleviate some of the symptoms. This includes nutrition, exercise, mindset, and other lifestyle adjustments.

Because you have good days and bad days with fibromyalgia, start each morning assessing how you feel. If you didn't sleep well the night before, plan your day accordingly and arrange to do less. If you feel well rested and your pain is tolerable, do more -- but remember that moderation is key. Always be flexible. You never know when you'll have a flare, so listen to your body and take breaks when you need them. If you have fibromyalgia, you've probably wondered if there are ways to modify your diet to improve symptoms such as fatigue and muscle pain.

Research hasn't shown that there are specific foods that all fibromyalgia patients should avoid or add to their diets, however it may still be worthwhile to take a closer look at how foods impact the way you feel.

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2006 and have found that managing the daily symptoms can be a challenge.  There are many highs and lows.  I’ve paid closer attention to the role my diet plays in my pain management and wanted to share the following tips on how I have tweaked my diet to support my overall health and wellness and the role EarthWater has played in minimizing my pain. 

My Post Copy (2).jpg

Pay attention to how food makes you feel.  

A lot of people with fibromyalgia have sensitivities to particular foods, but it varies from person to person.  A good way to start identifying the foods that may aggravate your symptoms is keeping a daily food journal.

Try eliminating certain foods

If you experience any irritable bowel symptoms, stop eating the food you suspect you may be sensitive to for six to eight weeks.  Then add it back into your diet and see how you feel

It makes sense for people with fibromyalgia -- just like everyone else -- to try to eat a diet high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.

Clean Eating:

A well-balanced diet can give you more energy to stay physically active and can potentially improve your overall health.

Buy vegetables that are pre-washed and cut up.  If you have a health food store nearby, go to the deli section and buy small portions of pre-prepared foods like beet salad or quinoa to vary your diet.

By drinking one bottle a day of EarthWater, I am giving my body the 70+ trace minerals it needs and have found that my pain level and exhaustion is not as intensified.  I also stay hydrated longer and it has also helped my acid reflux tremendously. 

Use Food to help Fight Fatigue

Choosing the right foods may help you keep your energy level more consistent and prevent fatigue.

Make sure you eat breakfast, which should include some protein and whole grains and you can try eating a boiled egg and some oatmeal.  This will help prevent your blood sugar from spiking and will give you the right kind of energy to get you going through the morning, even if your body is aching and you're feeling tired.

Focus on your overall well being

As you make changes to your diet, keep in mind that people with fibromyalgia tend to benefit most from taking a variety of approaches to managing their symptoms.

Along with leading a healthy lifestyle (including a nutritious diet) and adding EarthWater to your daily regimen there are many other therapies worth exploring.

Look into trying things like yoga, massage, and deep-breathing exercises. . Each individual with fibromyalgia have different symptoms and will need different solutions to get the best possible quality of life.

The Little Things Add Up

It’s been a month since the New Year’s Eve champagne toasts, confetti, & the famous Times Square ball counted down to 2019!

Picture1.png

Goals were set, plans were made, gym memberships were purchased, and the best intentions were made to live our best life.  Yet, while we have the best intent to follow through, the reality of meeting and executing our goals is a different story.                      

If we break our intentions into smaller goals, we find the little things really do add up and become easier to follow through. 

Here are some tips to start incorporating changes into your daily lifestyle: 

•       Stretch every morning.  When you get out of bed, take a few minutes to do a full body stretch.  This aids in getting your blood flowing, which improves circulation and maintaining long term flexibility.

•       Remember to HYDRATE.  Drink at least one bottle of EarthWater a day.   Providing your body with 70+ natural trace minerals and electrolytes has countless benefits and will have a positive impact on your overall health from the inside out.

•       Be more active.  If you’re watching TV, do a few crunches or squats.  Instead of driving a block down the street, walk or jog it!  Instead of taking the elevator, take the stairs.  Make a conscious effort to be more active.  All these things add up in your overall fitness.

•       Fall in love with clean foods.  Fresh fruits and vegetables instead of processed or canned foods.  Experiment with new recipes and have some fun in the process!  (Tip: Roasting vegetables is one of our favorite ways to prepare them... it’s SO easy and delicious.)

•       Help others.  It’s amazing how our inner well-being and overall health is impacted positively when we help others.  Volunteering, smiling, saying hello to a stranger, or offering a word of encouragement to a friend are all excellent ways to give back. 

•       Plan more activities in nature.  Take an evening walk in your neighborhood or local park or enjoying a daily stroll are great ways to keep your body moving and reconnect with mother earth.

Remember, every day is a new day!  Start something new on the journey to living your best life!  Feeling refreshed and hydrated with EarthWater is always just one bottle away.

Healthy Sleep is Calling Your Name

Routine, Self-Care, Minerals and a nightly break up with Technology can change your entire world. (Don’t worry, you can get back together in the morning)

Picture1.png

How can you thrive when you are sleep deprived?

Do you ever find yourself dreaming of being fully caught up on sleep, and functioning at your full potential?  Well my friends, dreams DO come true!  With a few simple tips & suggestions... you just might channel your inner “sleeping beauty.”

PRO TIP:

The National Sleep Foundation recommends between seven and nine hours of sleep a night for adults.  Going to bed around the same time each night helps your body establish a sleep rhythm, so your slumber is more restorative.  If you stick to the same pattern each night, your body will grow accustomed to it and will know when it’s time to unwind.  Eventually it will become easier to fall asleep.

We never realize how CRUCIAL our sleep is until we become deprived, lethargic, and realize that whatever percentage of sleep we’re lacking will directly be deducted from our fullest potential in all aspects of our lives.

2.png

Here at EarthWater, we’re never surprised when a consumer of our product tells us how they can’t believe even drinking just one bottle a day has dramatically improved their sleep!  It is our over 70+ trace minerals and natural electrolytes which fuels your energy during the day and naturally helps your body transfer into a deeper state of sleep at night.

Aside from drinking EarthWater, a healthy diet/lifestyle is key, too. (Oh, hello Captain Obvious.)  If you’re consuming a bunch of sugars or eating too late, this can keep you awake and throw your digestion system off.   Um, no thanks.

HERE ARE 6 TIPS TO HELP YOU DEVELOP A SUCCESSFUL SLEEP ROUTINE:

1.)      Make sure you’re getting the proper minerals, vitamins, & nutritious foods during the day.  We recommend at least one bottle of EarthWater a day.  Personally, I drink about 3 a day.

2.)      Take some time to wind down.  Make it your routine... routine is KEY for consistent sleep.  For example, journal, meditate, soak in a warm bath and try to stick to a time schedule.

3.)      Set yourself up for a successful morning by completing some tasks the night before that could put             you in a rush the next day.   It’s so relaxing to know you can wake up and be several steps                 ahead as you venture out on your fresh, new day!

4.)      TURN OFF/PUT AWAY THE ELECTRONICS.  They keep our brains stimulated and therefore your brain isn’t producing the natural melatonin it needs.

5.)      Your bed should be your oasis.  Create an atmosphere that is your place of zen, comfort, and relaxation...

6.)      Lastly.... all lights out!  Just like our amazing black EarthWater, the darkness in your room can be just as beneficial to your sleeping career.

The Mineral Deficiency Epidemic

EarthWater to the rescue

 
My Post (2).jpg
 

Unless you live on an organic farm, drink from a natural spring well, call for a horse & buggy instead of an Uber – then it is possible you are in the mineral deprived category of living in modern society.

Picture1.png

If that sounds like you, have no fear! EarthWater is here to help. SO, let’s get down to the facts, and take control of this epidemic.

  1.) What is mineral deficiency?

Mineral deficiency is a lack of the dietary minerals, the micronutrients that are needed for an organism's proper health. The cause may be a poor diet, impaired uptake of the minerals that are consumed or a dysfunction in the organism's use of the mineral after it is absorbed.

Pictu2re1.png

Yeah... No thank you.

2.) What are the symptoms of mineral deficiency?

·      decreased immune system

·      constipation, bloating, abdominal pain

·      diarrhea

·      irregular heart beat

·      loss of appetite

·      muscle cramping

·      nausea and vomiting

·      numbness or tingling in the extremities

·      poor concentration

·      slow social or mental development in children

·      weakness or tiredness

3.) How can EarthWater help restore the essential minerals missing in your life?

EarthWater has over 70+ trace minerals in just one bottle, including the rare Fulvic & Humic (Humic is the reason why our water has its beautiful dark color).  We recommend at least one bottle of EarthWater daily in order to fuel your body with the nutrients from Mother Nature herself.

EW: Today you are celebrating 21 straight years of running!  Congratulations!!!   Does that mean you haven’t missed a single day of running in that time span?  Tell us what this achievement means to you and how you have been able to keep it going day after day for all of these years?

Bo: Yes, it means that every day since 1998, I have run at least three miles every day without missing one day.  I feel blessed to be able to do something that I love for so long without any interruptions. Being blessed most importantly, is the top reason for reaching this many years, however love, passion and desire have also factored in to my running journey.

 

EW: What do you do to prepare for your runs and how do you recover?

Bo: To be honest there is little I do to prepare other than run the previous day. Recovery is warm and ice-cold baths which I feel are one of the hidden gems to keeping the body feeling good. EarthWater has replaced the sugar packed drinks I would consume prior to running. Since I learned about EarthWater, I’ve been very pleased with the way my body performs repeatedly day after day.

 

EW: Where is your favorite place that you’ve ran?

Bo: So many wonderful places, but off the top of my head right now it may be in Nevada up to the summit of Mount Charleston. It was a different kind of scenery than I’m accustomed to as the visual images were simply amazing. A trip is being planned this summer with two fantastic cinematographers to run and share certain areas along Route 66 from Chicago to Los Angeles. So, plenty of exciting places should be on my running menu in 2019.

 

EW: What are your goals for 2019 and onward?

Bo: My goal is to always remain healthy and lace up every day. I may possibly do another 50 miler or some speed timed goals in a 50K.  Those are two early goals which have been brewing in the back of my mind over the last few months.  

 

EW: Any parting words or last thoughts for yours and EarthWater’s fans?

Bo: I encourage everyone to get off the couch and seek an activity which can provide a healthier way of living. Find something that suits you and, most importantly, that you find enjoyable. It’s not work when you love doing something and you will feel better afterwards. Once you’ve taken those first steps then be sure to consume a few bottles of EarthWater every day to replenish, refuel and recover. These tips will help you ease into a fitness lifestyle.

Effective Ways to Detoxify Your Body Naturally

By: Kim Francis

 
Detox Image.png
 

What does it mean to detoxify your body?  Let’s start with the meaning of the word detoxification.  

Detoxification, or “detox” for short, is the body’s process of removing unwanted toxic substances acquired from environmental pollutants or excessive consumption of junk, refined and processed foods. 

Detoxification is not a food, or diet, or a pill - it is an ongoing, VITAL process that your body does (on its own) in order to survive. It happens 24/7, 365 days of the year. Not just for a few days or weeks prescribed to “do a detox”.

Your main detoxification organs are the liver and kidneys. The bowels and urinary tract are extensions of these organs as wastes exit your body. The skin (via sweat) and the lungs (via breathing/expelling CO2) are also considered detoxification organs. All together, these organs are pathways that toxins take to move through and exit your body.

There is a multitude of research showing that being exposed to toxins can contribute to resistance of weight-loss, chronic illnesses like cancer and diabetes, and trigger or aggravate autoimmune conditions.

While the liver possesses the capability of clearing out toxins at regular intervals, there are tips you can follow naturally to ensure that you have a healthy gut and glowing skin almost every time.

1. Eat fresh and clean 

Go organic and say yes to a healthy life.

The most important cause of toxin accumulation is consumption of highly fried, processed, refined & packaged foods. Excessive oil, salt and sugar act as toxins and can lead to various health issues in the future. It’s important to remember that pesticide sprayed fruits and veggies can be equally harmful to your body.  Opt for organic fruits and vegetables rather than consuming fast foods and processed foods.  Cabbage, broccoli, kale, cauliflower and brussel sprouts are types of vegetables which assist in detoxification.

2. Increase your Fiber

You can keep your digestion running smoothly by eating foods high in fiber such as beans, berries, avocados, squash, peas and flax or chia seeds.   

3. Drink plenty of Water (EarthWater)

There is nothing better than water to detoxify your body.  Water is not just essential for survival but is important for removal of unwanted toxins.  Water not only removes the impurities efficiently but helps n weight loss, improved skin and can help boost energy levels. Equally important is to be sure you get your minerals because also support detoxification.  How can I get my daily minerals? Drink one bottle a day of EarthWater or one EarthWater mineral concentrate packet in your beverage of choice. EarthWater has over 70+ trace minerals, is 100% natural, full of electrolytes and powerful antioxidants which are essential to a healthy body.  EarthWater offers an easy and healthy way to incorporate these important minerals into your daily diet.

4. Start exercising

We all need to exercise and starting out with as little as 15 minutes per day will help you say yes to a healthy body in the new year.  We need exercise in order to detoxify. When you exercise there is sweating and sweating is a means by which the skin eliminates toxins. Exercising will not only help you in staying fit and healthy but will help you get rid of unwanted toxins.  Some ways you can exercise at home is to do sit ups, squats, march in place or forward lunges.  Start the new year and new you off right and as Nike says “Just DO it!”

5. Rest

Resting is a way to assist the body in resetting itself.  Taking a time out can help reduce stress, boost your immune system and help reduce inflammation. Getting away from work or the stressors of life from time to time can help boost your immune system.

Want a Great Night’s Sleep? Stay Hydrated!

pexels-photo-416528.jpeg

Six in 10 Americans are currently sleep-deprived and those affected may not only be crankier and more fatigued, but also at a greater risk of obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and heart problems. If you have trouble sleeping, you may have read about the importance of a strict sleep routine and of designing a quiet and dark bedroom. One thing you may not know is that to really sleep well, keeping your hydration levels up with quality water is key. FULHUM Earthwater (which is 100% natural alkaline water with over 70 trace minerals) will rapidly hydrate you thanks to its potent detoxifying, inflammation-busting effects. The good news is that it will also help you achieve the zzzs you need to wake up with a bounce in your step.

Dehydration Hampers Quality Sleep

The National Sleep Foundation has warned that going to bed even mildly dehydrated can lead to poor quality sleep. The main reason is dry nasal passages, which can cause snoring, sore throat, and night leg cramps - all of which can lead to frequent waking. Factors that can increase dehydration include snoring, having a warm bedroom, and drinking heavily. Thus, you may sleep for eight or nine hours but still feel tired when you wake up. This is a good sign that you have not made your way through all the sleep cycles, including the restorative ‘deep sleep’ stage.

Why is Deep Sleep so Important?

There are five stages of sleep; the third and the fourth involve deep, restful sleep. During this stage, the body produces HGH (Human Growth Hormone) at the highest rate. HGH is key for muscle and tissue formation and it is responsible for skin elasticity - which is one of the main reasons why good sleep is essential for youthful skin. HGH can also help the skin in another important way - by enhancing wound healing thanks to enhanced collagen formation. Having enough HGH reduces your cardiovascular risk, builds stronger bones, and enhances weight loss. It keeps you looking and feeling young, so make sure to stay hydrated so you don’t have to wake up too frequently to get a glass of water .

How Can You Stay Hydrated throughout the Day?

Being hydrated involves drinking enough water throughout the day, though the standard motto of drinking ‘six to eight glasses’ rule may not apply to everyone. As noted in the Mayo Clinic Women’s Health Source, certain factors may require an increased intake, including intense physical activity, living in a hot and humid area, dry indoor air and high altitudes, and being ill - particularly with fever and other illnesses that make you lose more moisture. In general, doctors recommend drinking enough so that our urine is light. However, as we get older, we may need to drink more, since we are less likely to feel thirsty. Signs of dehydration to watch out for include headaches, constipation, and urinating infrequently.

To stay hydrated, keep a bottle of FULHUM Earthwater on hand, and try to drink around two litres a day, also consuming moisture-rich fruits. Doing so will ensure you feel alert throughout the day, but will also enable you to rest well at night. There is an important link between your hydration levels and your ability to make it through all the crucial sleep cycles, so if you want to enjoy good sleep quality as well as quantity, water will certainly be a lifesaver.

EarthWater’s Cash Riley, Jr. (aka “Marathon Man”)

Good Morning and Happy Friday to all of you EarthWater fans out there! We have a very special video blog appearance this week from our very own Cash Riley, Jr. (President of EarthWater).  Over the past year, Cash made a lifestyle change to incorporate running into his daily routine and is drinking EarthWater to help him keep hydrated and energized throughout his workout. 

 During the Thanksgiving holiday, his brother convinced him to participate in the Dallas Turkey Trot.  Cash was bitten by the Marathon bug as soon as he crossed the finish line, thus giving him the power (along with EarthWater) and turning him into… “Marathon Man”. 

Soon after the Turkey Trot, Cash recently ran in the BMW Dallas Marathon where he finished in an impressive 2 hours and 8 minutes carrying his bottle of EarthWater with him the whole race to keep his legs moving.   

Without further ado, please tune in to the video blog below to hear from Cash himself about his experience with running, marathons, and how EarthWater plays an integral role in his training and performance.

Keeping the Body Hydrated, from Head to Toe

photo-1511593358241-7eea1f3c84e5.jpeg

Human beings often associated dehydration with a sensation of thirst, but this state can be dangerous, especially for young children and seniors. Dehydration has many short- and long-term effects. Did you know that when it strikes, parts of the brain can swell, and your ability to carry out normal tasks can suffer? A study published in Physiological Reports found that mere heat stress, exercise, and dehydration can have significant effects on our cognitive functioning, though over-hydration is equally bad. As researchers noted, when high endurance athletes consume too much water alone, blood sodium can drop excessively, leading to a condition known as water intoxication or ‘hyponatremia’. What is the best way to ensure that you don’t under- or overdo it? How can you keep your entire body hydrated even during the warmest seasons of the year?

Enjoying a Good Night’s Sleep

Sleep may just about be the last thing you think of when discussing hydration, but a recent Penn State study found that adults who sleep only six hours a night (rather than the recommended eight) have a higher chance of being dehydrated. The reason is that when we sleep we release a specific hormone called vasopressin, which is released later in the sleep cycle. When we miss the deep cycle of sleep, we fail to produce enough of this hormone, and the result is a disruption in the body’s hydration levels.

Choosing the Right Water

To stay hydrated, choosing quality water such as EarthWater, which is 100% natural alkaline water that has over 70 trace minerals plus Fulvic and Humic complexes, is important. Trace minerals are vital to keep the body in a hydrated state because they balance the amount of water in the body, balance acid/pH levels, and help with the transport of nutrients of cells; they also help cells rid themselves of harmful toxins. Water that is beneficial to health is pure and harnessed from the earth; it can help with a host of bodily functions, including improving circulation and improving blood pressure, lowering levels of arthritis-related pain, promoting beautiful skin and nails, and helping build a powerful immune system.

Letting Your Body Be Your Guide

In a review published in the American Journal of Physiology, Dr. H Valtin set out to answer whether or not the centuries-old mainstay that you should drink eight hours of water a day, has a scientific basis. Today, health professionals still recommend that you consume this amount per day, and while it won’t cause you harm, as noted by Dr. Mercola, eight isn’t necessarily the ‘magic number’ for everyone. Your requirements for water will go up or down depending on various factors, including your activity level, the season of the year, and more. He recommends letting thirst guide you and using the color of your urine as a guide – aim for a lighter rather than a dark color to ensure you are getting all the water you need. Much of the water we obtain comes from food as well, so make sure to consume hydrating foods such as fruits and veggies like fresh cucumbers, celery, iceberg lettuce, and even cauliflower!

Keeping your body hydrated involves more than drinking water; you should also aim to sleep well every night and enjoy a well-balanced diet. Select the right kind of water, ensuring it is rich in minerals and other powerful components. There is no better choice than EarthWater due to the 70+ trace minerals and high alkalinity with a natural 9.5-10.5 pH! Finally, stay in tune to the messages your body is sending you, quickly filling a glass with your favorite water as soon as you start feeling thirsty.

Clean House Clean Mind – the Mind Boosting Benefits of an Organized Home

Clean-House-Clean-Mind-–-the-Mind-Boosting-Benefits-of-Organised-Home-.jpg

Kipple is useless objects, like junk mail or match folders after you use the last match or gum wrappers of yesterday’s homeopape. When nobody’s around, kipple reproduces itself. For instance, if you go to bed leaving any kipple around your apartment, when you wake up the next morning there’s twice as much of it. It always gets more and more. – Phillip K. Dick

Coined by the science fiction author, the term “kipple” refers to the stuff that is collecting dust in your home, all the possessions you have but may never use again. We are all guilty of it to some degree because it is an evolutionary trait. We have been wired to keep objects that are useful or pleasing to us, and have done for thousands of years – even as far back as prehistory.

Clutter and mess affect us all, although studies have shown that men are typically less bothered by it than women. While an interesting finding, it is not entirely surprising when we take a look at gender stereotypes – although what did make me chuckle was that according to this study I am a man and my husband is a woman when it comes to mess.

How does an untidy house affect us though? Is the age-old phrase “tidy home, tidy mind” one to live by? The thing is, a clean and organized home can actually lead to improved mental health and a better mindset. In this fascinating and detailed guide, we look at the ways in which a clean home can boost your mind and mood – all of which is backed by science and detailed studies.’

PART 1

Mess: The Impact on General Health and Wellbeing

The state of our homes doesn’t just impact our minds and mental health; it also affects us in a physical sense. Our entire bodies are made of up highly organized structures and processes, organization and tidiness are rooted deep within our genetic codes. As a result, mess and untidiness can have an effect on our general health and wellbeing, something that this section takes the time to look at in detail.

Infections and Illness 

The air that is inside our home can actually be dirtier than outside, and this is something that we don’t really take the time to stop and think about. There are loads of contributing factors to this unclean air – everything from the shells of dead insects and dust to pet dander can accumulate if your home is not regularly cleaned.

As a result, you may find yourself suffering from allergy symptoms like itchy eyes and a running nose. This is especially true if you work from home. A study carried out by Nicole Keith of the University of Indiana determined that those who kept their house clean were more physically active and healthier than those with untidy homes – reducing the risk of heart disease.

Safety and Wellbeing

Clutter can be the cause of several accidents:

  • Fires

  • Falling

  • Broken Bones

This is because as clutter grows it becomes more of a risk, and this is especially true in hoarding situations (something we look at a little later). By ensuring that your home is clean, organized, and free from homeless clutter, you are reducing the risk of causing severe injury to yourself, or even losing your home through a fire and possibly not being able to escape due to the mess.

Sleep

Clutter actually stops us from sleeping as well as we could be, and this is because the brain sees it as unfinished work, tasks that need to be completed. Due to the unease that it can cause your mind, your quality of sleep is lessened. 75% of those interviewed by the National Sleep Foundation in 2011 found that they experienced better sleep when the area was tidy, and that the bedding being clean and fresh added an extra level of quality. A well-rested mind leads to you feeling happier, motivated, and more productive overall.

Food and Nutrition

When you feel stressed and overwhelmed, it is easy to find comfort in food. A messy home can leave you feeling unmotivated in many areas of your life, and that includes cooking. By ensuring that your house is kept clean and organized, you get to feel better about yourself and surroundings, but it may also inspire you to make good food choices. This includes switching unhealthy snacks for healthy ones, and even cooking meals from scratch.

PART 2

Mess and Mental Health: How it Can Affect You

“Clutter bombards our minds with excessive stimuli, causing our senses to work overtime on stimuli that aren't necessary or important.” – Sherri Bourg Carter 

I live in what I like to call organized chaos. There are papers everywhere, piles of notebooks, and I’m not quite sure when I checked which pens actually work. I say it works for me, but it actually ends up impacting my work and motivation. When I take the time to clean my desk, and my home, I end up feeling a lot better. In this section, we look at the effects of mess on the mind.

Stress and Anxiety 

In 2009, a study on stress was undertaken, and it discovered that the women who had higher levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) stated that their homes were untidy or cluttered. The women were also found to be more depressive during the day, and experienced higher levels of anxiety.

Clutter and mess have been shown to increase stress and anxiety levels, which can lead to poor sleep quality and even weight gain. Additionally, too much stress can increase your risk of heart disease as well as increase your blood pressure and heart rate. If the cortisol levels in your body are continuously raised for a prolonged period of time, it can result in a suppressed immune system as well as a lowered metabolism.

Depression 

A messy room or home can be a sign that you are suffering from depression, as well as a symptom. Just getting out of bed every morning is often hard enough, and so the cleaning tends to get left for another day because there is no motivation or desire to get it done. A lack of focus is often detrimental when it comes to cleaning, and the fact that the clutter and mess remains can lead you to feel even worse about yourself and the situation.

Mould can also be a contributing factor to feelings of depression and hopelessness as a study published in Environmental Health Perspectives found that when they compared the health and well-being of those living in homes with mould and those without, it wasn’t just physical health that was being affected. Even minimal exposure increased the risk of depressive behavior by over 30%, so ensuring that your home is dry, free from damp, and that any mould is removed quickly.

General Effects on Mental Health

Mess and clutter can lead to a massive reduction in your motivation and productivity. All the brain sees is unfinished work, and so it can hinder its ability to focus on the task at hand. The constant knowledge that you need to get the cleaning done can put you at a massive disadvantage when it comes to working, focussing, or just trying to relax.

It can affect our creative flow and abilities as well, because the mess is distracting to the mind and puts it off the task at hand. This can be difficult for those that are in creative jobs, such as graphic designers and writers, so it is important to ensure that both your work and relaxation spaces are tidy and organized.

General Statistics 

“Messy homes and workspaces leave us feeling anxious, helpless, and overwhelmed. Yet, rarely is clutter recognized as a significant source of stress in our lives,” – Sherri Bourg Carter

An important part of studies, like those on the impact of mess on mental health, is to gather up the statistics. These give a better insight into the ways people are affected by things, as well as the differences between certain groups – like men and women or children and adults. Here are some of the general statistics for mess and mental health:

  • 42% of women in a Homejoy survey stated that a messy home caused more stress

  • 18% of men in a Homejoy survey felt that cleaning was very therapeutic

  • The same survey showed more men clean regularly than women, but not more thoroughly

  • 34% of men in a Homejoy survey claim to only ensure the bedroom is clean

  • 31% of women in a Homejoy survey describe themselves as people who clean the whole house

  • 18-24-year olds are classed as the messiest generation at the moment

  • 54% of people surveyed by Dr Beckmann stated they had cancelled plans because their home was not clean enough for them to host.

  • 51% of arguments in the UK are caused by deciding whose turn it is to take the rubbish out

That last statistic may seem amusing, but it is also very true. Hopefully, these have helped you gain a little more insight into the world of mess and untidiness.

PART 3

Cleanliness and Mental Health: How a Clean Home Benefits the Mind

“Neatness and order support health — and oppose chaos.” – Courtney Lopresti

In the previous section, we looked at the ways in which a messy home can impact the mind, and the results were very negative. To counter that, we are now going to take a look at the positive effects of a clean home on your mind and mental health. Please bear in mind that while there are many mental health conditions out there, these three are the ones that have the most studies with regards to cleanliness and to use others would result in more speculation as opposed to evidence.

Stress and Anxiety 

If we look at the 2009 study in the previous section, the women who had lower levels of cortisol experienced happier moods, reduced levels of stress and anxiety, but also ate better, exercised, and were able to get restful sleep. All of this is because their homes were tidy, and so they were not bothered or distracted by mess and clutter.

Often, anxiety can find itself rooted in fear of the past or future, but cleaning can help to alleviate and change some of these feelings. The act of letting go of clutter from the past, of removing dirt from your home, can leave you feeling lighter. However, it also helps you to let go of negative emotions and experiences – two things that are really important for moving forward.

Depression 

Cleanliness is a form of self-respect, and if you keep your home clean, you are showing yourself that you are worth it. Getting it done won’t always be easy, but the results will leave you feeling more confident, valued, and also show you that you are worthy of living in nice surroundings. Over time, and as you continue to keep your home clean, so you see an improvement in your mood and outlook and start to feel a little happier inside. This is because you have clear and worthy surroundings.

Cleaning also means that you are getting some light physical exercise, which has been shown to boost serotonin and oxytocin levels in the body – leaving you with an improved mood by the end of it. Plus, it makes for a great way to take your mind off the things that are getting you down for a little while.

General Effects on Mental Health

If your home is clean and organized, your mind will be as well. This means that you will end up feeling more productive and motivated, as well as ready to tackle work and issues head-on. By knowing where everything is and being in an environment that is spacious and relaxed, your mind is only focused on the task in front of you and not distracted by clutter or mess.

It can also lead to positive changes in general behavior because having a clean home makes you feel better about yourself. As a result, you are less likely to feel overly emotional or have bursts of rage due to the fact that you are no longer surrounded by clutter and chaos. This is true for both children and adults that have recently changed from living in a mess to living in cleanliness.

PART 4

Hoarding: What it is and How to Overcome it

"(1) the acquisition of, and failure to discard a large number of possessions that appear to be useless or of limited value; (2) living spaces sufficiently cluttered so as to preclude activities for which those spaces were designed; and (3) significant distress or impairment in functioning caused by the hoarding." – Dr Randy Frost and Dr Tamara Hartl

This is the officially recognised definition of a hoarder and hoarding. Much of the time, those who have a lot of stuff will jokingly say that they are a hoarder, but in actuality, you are not until the above criteria have been met. Hoarding often finds a way to overtake your life and home, but it doesn’t have to be a permanent thing – there are ways to overcome it.

In most cases, hoarding is caused by trauma, and this can come in various forms. Anything from the death of a loved one to a divorce is enough to trigger the chain of events that leads to becoming a hoarder. However, it is also important to note that the symptoms can start in childhood, and general hoarding symptoms also tend to make themselves known before the condition sets in.

Disorganisation, a lacklustre attitude towards cleaning, and purchasing more than you need are all tell-tale signs of hoarding. While they can manifest as collecting and remain quite harmless, a traumatic event can set the chain off. The houses may be filled with clutter and chaos, but hoarders are also perfectionists when it comes to their interests and activities. For further clarification, here are the main symptoms:

  • Collect items that may have little or no monetary value, or items they intend to reuse or repair

  • Find it hard to categorise or organise items

  • Have difficulties making decisions

  • Struggle to manage everyday tasks, such as cooking, cleaning and paying bills

  • Become extremely attached to items, refusing to let anyone touch or borrow them

  • Have poor relationships with family or friends

Anything can be hoarded, from newspapers to pets – and the latter is more common than you might expect. As we have already mentioned, hoarding is a treatable condition, and while the road may be long, the results leave those who were suffering with cleaner homes and feeling much happier in themselves. While you might think the first step is to just grab some bin bags and start chucking stuff out as they do on television, it is a much deeper issue than that.

An interesting fact to note is that 30% of those with OCD exhibit hoarding tendencies, and the two conditions often link together. It is a neurological condition, and one that needs to be handled with delicacy and sensitivity. As a result, the first step to getting out of the habit is through CBT- otherwise known as cognitive behavioural therapy. This teaches you new ways to think, altering your thought processes so that you see things in a healthier way, and one that will better your life.

It takes a while, and you need to have both the motivation and commitment, but it really does show results. The therapist doesn’t throw anything away, but they will help you to find the strength to do so, and by the end of it, you will be much better at clearing clutter. Additionally, if you have friends or family that want to help and support you, let them. It is easier to overcome when you know there are people who are there to help when you need it, and a support network can be a vital aspect.

Once you are feeling more confident in your ability to throw stuff out and declutter your home, you can start to take bigger steps. Here are a few ideas to help you keep your home clean and free from unnecessary clutter:

  • Make immediate decisions about things like newspapers and letters

  • Think about what you are buying. Do you need it? If so, is it necessary?

  • Throw out anything that has not been used in over a year

  • Once you have made a decision about an item, stick with it

  • Spend 15-20 minutes cleaning every day. Little and often goes a long way

Hoarding might not seem like a massive issue when it is put on paper, but it can have a massive impact on the lives of those who struggle with it every day. To end this section, here is a little perspective to show you just how dangerous and damaging hoarding can be when left untreated:

  • Makes cleaning difficult, leading to mould, as well as insect and rodent infestations

  • Unhygienic conditions, as mentioned above, can lead to severe illness

  • Creates a fire risk and potential blocking of exits

  • Can cause injury through tripping and falling over cluttered items

  • Large piled of objects can collapse and fall, causing injury or even death

PART 5

Tips: Staying Organized Physically and Mentally

Cleanliness isn’t everything; you need to learn how to stay nice and organized as well – both in the physical world and within your mind. A clean home and an organized one go hand in hand, and it provides some much-needed relief for your brain. Here are a few of our top tips for staying organized – even when you feel like you can’t.

You Don’t Have to Throw it all Out 

The thing is, a lot of the fear and anxiety that comes with decluttering is knowing that it is going to a landfill or an incinerator. However, not everything needs to be thrown out – you can also donate or sell some of your old stuff. This is a great way to ensure that it goes to a new and loving home, and you may even make a little cash in the process. While some things will have to be chucked away, it’s reassuring to know that this isn’t the case for everything.

Wear Clean Clothes and Wash Them 

Ensuring your home is clean is one thing, but your clothes are also important. Clean clothes leave you feeling more confident, boosting self-esteem and self-worth. This is because you know you look tidy and presentable, but also because the smell and feel of clean clothes are great. Walking around in clothing that is dirty or stained has a negative effect on your confidence and mental state, and it is good for your mental health. Wash your clothes regularly, and always wear clean ones.

Use a Calendar

Investing in a calendar or diary is a great way to keep your life on track. You can mark down days when you are meeting up with friends, important work dates, and even plan a neat cleaning schedule to ensure that you keep up with the housework and find the time to do so. It doesn’t have to be physical either; there are loads of apps (including those that come with your mobile device) that can help you to get organized and remember everything.

Buy a Filing System

This is such an important thing to consider because we all have loose paperwork that we aren’t allowed to throw out because we may need it for things like tax returns in the future. For all of your record, documents, and essential pieces of paperwork, you need to invest in a suitable filing system. Whether you go for a full-on cabinet or a simple box wallet with divided sections, it keeps things neat and tidy while also ensuring they are out of the way and in a safe location.

Go Through Your Stuff Regularly 

Every year you really should embrace the concept of spring cleaning. Look at your possessions, your clutter, and ask yourself if you have used it since your last cleaning session. If the answer is no, you should get rid of it. By going through your stuff on an annual basis (or more), you are keeping on top of things, remaining organized, and preventing things from getting out of hand.

PART 6

Tips: Keeping Your Home Clean

Once your home is clean the act of ensuring it remains that way is not always going to be easy. Falling back into old habits can seem comfortable and tempting, but it is important that you don’t give in to the temptation. I have dedicated this section to tips for keeping your home clean so that you can stay on top of things without getting overwhelmed.

Take it One Room at a Time 

The worst thing you can do when trying to clean your home or manage the upkeep is look at the whole mess. Instead, you should do one room at a time. Don’t even think about the rest of your home, just start with one room, clean it up, and then move onto the next. By focusing on a single area, you minimize the stress and pressure, so you get the job done efficiently, feel good about it, and then move on so that the rest of your home can look just as good.

Little and Often

Cleaning can be an overwhelming task, and so sometimes it is best to do a little bit often. If you spend 10-15 minutes each day tidying up and performing a few small tasks it helps you to stay on top of things – so your home is presentable, and you still feel happy and comfortable with the state of your house. Additionally, it should be noted that there is never any shame in hiring some professional cleaners if you start feeling as though it is all too much. We all need help sometimes.

Remember the Lighting 

It’s surprising how easy it is to forget to clean things like lighting fixtures and the tops of frames or mirrors. These little areas collect an incredible amount of dust, and when you take the time to clean it all off, you will feel a massive weight lifted from your shoulders. While they are easy to miss, they are equally simple to clean and won’t take a massive amount of time out of your day.

Make the Experience an Enjoyable One

The act of cleaning can be quite a boring and tiresome one, so you should try your best to make it fun. It’s a good idea to play some music, maybe have the television on, and make a little song and dance out of it. The process goes faster and better when you are actually enjoying it. Additionally, cleaning is a form of exercise, and all that movement burns fat and calories – leaving you feeling better about yourself. Even a little cleaning every day counts as some exercise.

Smells Like Home 

Have you ever thought about what your home smells like? About what you want it to smell like? Even the simple act of lighting a candle can help to bring new meaning to the space within your home, and you have the ability to choose the aroma. Baking things like bread or cookies regularly can also make the house feel warmer and more welcoming. While it may not be a cleaning tip, it is a way to ensure that your house always feels like your home.

Remember These Three Tips

Finally, there are three things you should remember to do every day. They keep your home tidy, but even if they are the only things you manage, at least you have taken one step towards a clean home that day.

  • Make the bed when you get up 

  • Open the curtains or the blinds to let the natural light in 

  • Never go to bed with dirty dishes in the sink, clean them up 

You may have your doubts, but these three little things are amazing when it comes to making you feel better about yourself and your home.

To Conclude

There are many things that a clean home can do for the mind, and if this article has done anything, it should be showing you that. A messy home can increase stress and anxiety levels, as well as lower your mood and lead to poorer sleep quality. By ensuring that your home is tidy, you can ease these feelings and live a more comfortable life.

Mental health and the state of your home are reflected within each other, and if your house is in a terrifying state, then your mental health is likely to be suffering as well. You never need to go through the process alone, and there are plenty of professionals that are able to help you learn new behaviors and help you work through your mental health issues. This guide not only offers insight into how a clean home can help you, but also advice and tips on how to keep your home clean.

What did you think of our guide to how a clean home can improve your mental health? Did it leave you feeling inspired, or are there other concepts you would have liked us to explore? Leave a comment below as we love hearing from you.

Consumption vs Absorption of Nutrients

 
 

Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and as I’m getting ready to gather with family and chow down on some turkey, it’s reminded me of a question we get often: how does our body process the nutrients we put into it?

Most people think their body absorbs all the good nutrients from the things that they eat and drink, but our digestive system is a bit more complicated than that. As Victoria Freeman states in Experience Life, “Consuming the right foods is not the end of the nutritional story, and just because something makes it to your stomach doesn’t mean your body will actually use it as you intended.”

“Whether they’re from food or supplement, nutrients aren’t technically in your body until they’ve been absorbed,” explains Stella Volpe, PhD, RD, associate professor of nursing and Miriam Stirl Term Endowed Chair in Nitrition at the University of Pennsylvania. “Until absorption, things are just passing through.”

Vitamins and minerals can be absorbed in ways besides just eating, including directly through your skin, but certainly the most common way is through your mouth. The absorption process begins as you chew, and continues through your esophagus and all throughout your digestive system, but the majority occurs in the upper portion of your small intestine. Your body breaks down the foods and liquids you intake and pushes it along to the small intestine for absorption through its walls into your bloodstream.

Generally, scientists agree that absorption of vitamins and minerals occurs faster and at a higher rate suspended in liquid versus in a solid form (solid food, solid supplement pills).

For more information, I’d suggest reading this in-depth article by Victoria Freeman titled “All About Absorption” - https://experiencelife.com/article/all-about-absorption/

National Diabetes Month - Help Earthwater Raise Awareness & Insight Action to Make the World a Happier and Healthier Place

My Post (4).jpg

November is National Diabetes Month, and we here at EarthWater are committed to helping those with the disease and those working towards finding a cure. Diabetes affects over 30 million Americans, about 9.4% of the US population. We continue to be a proud supporter of the American Diabetes Association and a sponsor of Tour De Cure Dallas. We're excited that EarthWater contains minerals which those who suffer with Type 2 Diabetes have been shown to be deficient in.

 

Although there is not yet a cure for Type 2 diabetes, doctors recommend supplementing a proper diet with trace minerals.

 

According to Dr. Marc S. Stevens in an article on DiabetesHealth.com, "Diabetes affects the small blood vessels and the function of immune cells when blood sugar is high," but proper nutrition and blood sugar management can help improve health."

 

He continues that many Diabetes patients are deficient in minerals like Magnesium:

 

"Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong.  It also helps the body digest, absorb, and utilize proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.

 

"Researchers have become very interested in the role magnesium plays in preventing and managing disorders such as diabetes. It is an essential mineral in the regulation of blood sugar, playing a part in the secretion and function of insulin by opening cell membranes for glucose. Low blood levels of magnesium are frequently seen in people with type 2 diabetes. A deficiency can cause insulin resistance, so that they require greater amounts of insulin to maintain their blood sugar within normal levels."

 

Type 2 Diabetes patients have also been found to have lower levels of the minerals Zinc, Selenium, and Chromium in their blood. You can read about the benefits of those minerals in this informative article.

 

EarthWater's products contain Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, and Chromium; over 70 trace minerals in total which aid in the body's biochemical reactions and critical functions.
