Health Tips

by Kimberly Rogers, CR, WCMT and NCMT

  • Drink water with a slice of lemon or a squirt of real lemon juice. This helps to clear sinuses (great for pollen-laden days) and cleans the lymphatic system of crud (Sprite and Country Time lemonade do not qualify as lemon water).

  • Wear a hat when outdoors for protection from UV rays and prevent heat exhaustion/sunstroke on hot days and to help you stay warmer during cold days.

  • Cover all exposed areas with sunscreen (that includes ears and bald patches on the scalp) and use a lip balm with sunscreen in it. This is good year-round advice for UV protection.

  • Use your bug repellent faithfully during mosquito and tick season.

  • Take a multi-vitamin and eat nutritional foods for maximum health benefits—like being sick less often!

  • Exercise—do something that you really enjoy. If you don't like to lift weights, how about yoga, tai chi, a swim or walk?

  • Limit use and length of time in tanning beds/booths. If your skin is red when you leave, or reddens after several uses, guess what—you've burned yourself! Your skin needs time to heal. Using a sunscreen will protect your skin from burning while the UV rays stimulate the melanin in the skin to tan. And when sunburn does happen, reach for aloe vera to soothe and heal the skin. Dry brushing and other exfoliation treatments help remove thick layers of dead, crackling dry skin; revealing the healthy tissue beneath. Treat your skin well and you'll always look younger.

  • Visit your Health Care Provider and Dentist regularly.

  • Visit your Holistic Health Care Aestheticians and Practitioners often for maximum yearly activity, health and fun!
