A Note from Val - Notch up your nutrition
I don't know about you, but during the cold short days of winter my good eating habits seem to go into hibernation and the junk food monster takes over. Not good for my health or my hips!
It's time to get back on track.
If you are in the same boat, don't beat yourself up. That just leads to more stress eating.
Do read the featured article below and related pages. Then join me in committing to making two small consistent tweaks to your eating habits this week that will lead you closer to optimum health. Your body will thank you and you will shift momentum back in the right direction.
National Nutrition Month - Time for a Tune Up
March is National Nutrition Month. This month we will take the opportunity to review some basics of healthy eating.
Nutrition is one of the main pillars of health. Everything you put into your mouth either enhances or detracts from your health. Over time, your habitual eating patterns have a major and cumulative effect on your health, for better or worse.
Feed your body what it needs and it will serve you well for a long time. Healthy foods nourish all your cells and help them function properly. They provide your body what it needs to repair and renew itself. They feed your brain so you can think clearly and feel good mentally. Healthy foods give you energy. When you consistently eat wisely, you are more likely to feel well - physically and mentally.
Keep in mind that an occasional dietary transgression won’t hurt you. The problem is that most of us eat a steady diet of highly processed, chemical –laden ‘foods’ and beverages which wreak havoc with blood sugar and hormones. They compromise your health and make you pack on the pounds. Junk food actually depletes your body of nutrients in order to be digested and assimilated. It stresses your liver and can suppress your immune system or cause it to get hyperactive.
For good health you may want to subscribe to the 80-20 plan. That means that 80% of your calories come from healthy foods. If your diet is far from this, don't despair. Make two tweaks this week to notch your percentage of healthy foods up closer to that 80% mark. Every little bit helps.

Upcoming Event - Springforest Healingfest
The Spring Forest Healingfest is coming on March 12, 2012!
During this six day free on-line event you will learn how to use the power of your mind and 'qi' to help yourself heal from pain, stress, and illness.
Qigong is a natural self-healing energy process that anyone can do at home. As Richard Gerber, M.D. puts it, "…by moving Qi through the body, you can heal yourself of many ailments."
Bill Manahan, M.D. from the University of Minnesota Medical School said, “I would place Qigong equal in importance to the incredible discoveries in the forties called
antibiotics and in the fifties called immunization.”
