Dr. Lovegrove’s Top Tips

 

Reduce your risk for Heartburn

Don’t dilute your stomach acid and cause a “rebound over production of acid”.  Drinking too much water before or during a meal can dilute your stomach acid and thus decrease your body’s ability to break down food in your stomach.  This dilution process can cause your body to produce excessive acid leading to heartburn or acid reflux.

Choose Nuts
Eating nuts and seeds between meals that contain a healthy choice of fat is a good option to stabilize blood sugar and raise metabolism

Please eat my Chia Pet
Choose Chia seeds over flax seeds for a better source of micronutrients i.e omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins. It is often more pleasing taste to your palate than flax.

Take Care of Your Olive Oil
Buy Organic small bottles of olive oil and refrigerate it after opening to maximize potency.  Also, olive oil loses most of its protective health benefits if you heat it to high temps during cooking.

Look to live on “Live Cultures”
Try more Cultured food or drinks i.e Kombucha tea for your beneficial bacteria aka “live cultures” as opposed to foods like yogurt.

Raw Milk is Better
Pasteurized milk is linked to weaker bones and cancer so re-discover the health benefits of raw or unpasteurized dairy.

Instant Detoxifier

Choose to squeeze 1-2 wedges of Lemon into 6-8 ounces of water in am first thing when getting up out of bed and before having breakfast.  This drink acts as a tonic as well as liver and intestinal detoxifier.

Take a Page from the Orient
Flavor your veggies with meat like many Asian cultures. It is more heart healthy to have your dinner plate consist mostly of vegetables with a small portion of meat mixed in and NOT the other way around.

Laughter is the Best Medicine

No….. Seriously, Laugh More, Play often and tap into the kid in all of us.

Play it Safe with Your Phone

Avoid Bluetooth® or other cordless, hands-free devices.  The Electromagnetic Radiation (EMF) from those devices is most likely as dangerous as placing the cell phone directly to your ear/brain.  Go back to the hands-free devices with the cords OR if you don’t have one with you, put the phone on speaker and hold it at least 10 inches from your brain.  The brain is the most important organ to protect.

Go Paraben and BPA Free

Learn more about the harmful effects of plastics i.e. BPA, phalates, and parabens.  You may be surprised how often you consume them in your cookware, storage containers, cometics, lotions, shampoos, and sunscreens.  These toxins are endocrine disruptors and change our hormonal balance.

Learn Something New Everyday

Good job!  You probably just did J

The brain works like a muscle in that… “if you don’t use it, you lose it”
