Change Your Mind. Change Your Body.


Talk to Your Water

Amberleigh Carter1 Comment

Talking to your water is less creepy than you think. Placing positive intentions in it can actually change your health & your life. Since water has a crystalline structure, it acts like a your water holds memory.

This is very powerful, as you can tell your water how to interact with the water-based cells in your body & exchange vital information. It's like your bottled water is a carrier pigeon for sending messages to your body. The highest intention that's been scientifically measured that you can send: The combination of LOVE & GRATITUDE.

Yep. Your Monday just got way better. Be the freak in the office who talks to your water.

Mental Health

As May comes to an end, I'd like to touch on mental health, as this month is Mental Health Awareness Month! So, here are some tips for your mental health:

Did you know that there are more neurons in your gut than in your brain?! Mental health is just as important as physical health--your mind & body hold hands. So if you suffer with anxiety, panic attacks, depression, suicidal tendencies, obsessive compulsive disorder, and the like, nutrition is largely a wonderful way to help! 

1) Salt water lowers histamine and adrenalin levels, which can greatly help to reduce anxiety and the incidence of panic attacks. (Sea salt or Morton Canning & Pickling salt).
2) Fruit is a wonderful mood-booster and helps to clarify thoughts, as it contains a sugar off of which the brain solely runs.
3) Meat & bone broth are also helpful in building neurotransmitters that are responsible for mood.
4) Staying hydrated with water helps to clean out neurotoxins that could be affecting the way that you think.

5) Low levels of cholesterol are associated with increased levels of depression.  Saturated fat, fruit, and lifestyle changes like meditation, rest, sunshine exposure, and exercise (even if it's walking outside) all help to normalize cholesterol levels and are all excellent ways to get back in touch with yourself, find your center, boost your mood, balance emotions, and empower you to conquer your day!

Always be mindful of what's in your food (& lifestyle), as what you eat (& how you live) can manifest into how you view the world!

Not All Salts Are Created Equal

There's a huge difference between refined white table salt and unrefined white sea salt.

Refined white table salt:

  • Often contain anti-caking agents, some of which are aluminum-based and linked to heavy metal toxicity and Alzheimer's disease.
  • Other additives, such as dextrose (a sugar), are used in iodized salt (salt with iodine added) to keep the salt from turning purple.
  • Sodium silico-aluminate, also added to processed table salt, is associated with kidney problems and mineral malabsorption.
  • Furthermore, sodium acetate is added to table salt, which causes elevated blood pressure, kidney disturbances, and water retention.

Unrefined white sea salt (white Celtic Sea Salt or Morton Canning & Pickling Salt):

  • Aids in balancing blood sugar levels.
  • Clears the lungs of mucus and phlegm, which helps those with asthma and cystic fibrosis
  • It is a strong antihistamine, which helps with bites, stings, lowering adrenaline and stress, & more
  • Helps to prevent muscle cramps (including women's cycles)
  • Alleviates headaches, dizziness, and light-headedness upon standing
  • Makes bones firm
  • Helps absorb nutrients in the intestines
  • Extracts excess acidity from the cells of the body, particularly in brain cells
  • It is very hydrating to the body

Consider this to be your formal invitation to add a pinch (about 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon) of unrefined white sea salt to each liter of water you drink.  This will help maintain electrolyte and energy levels, while also helping your body perform vital functions. 

Oh--and you might as well just throw away that iodized refined white table salt while you're at it (hint: iodine is a thyroid inhibitor).  Your body will thank you.
