Baker Borski’s Top Five Tips to Keep You and Your Family Strong!

#5        Get Your Sleep!  One-third of our life should be spent sleeping and naturally restoring our body’s immune system.  Studies have shown individuals who do not get enough sleep literally get “worn down”.

#4        Keep Moving!  During this time, you and your family may not be getting enough movement.  Daily walks, bike rides or dancing around to fast paced dance music will keep your muscles and tissues tuned-up.

#3        Eat Clean!  If you and your family are eating processed food, you are weakening your immune system.  Healthy proteins, veggies and fruits are the willing formula for staying healthy.

#2        Stay Positive!  That’s right! Studies have shown that those who have a positive attitude are typically healthier.

#1        Get Adjusted!  Parents report back that when their children have gotten adjusted regularly, they notice they have less colds and flu symptoms and are generally healthier!

You are what you eat

If you really want to feel better, get rid of

unexplained aches and pains, reduce your

chances of getting arthritis of any type,

cancer, diabetes, MS, ALS, heart

disease/cholesterol issues, unexplained

headaches and fatigue, syndrome x, and/or

high blood pressure you HAVE TO

CHANGE WHAT YOU EAT.

One of my favorite sayings is credited to Albert Einstein: The definition of insanity is to expect new results by doing things the

same way.

 One thing that was made clear is that you can take great supplements of all kinds but if you continue to eat a typical American diet, you will likely continue to have health problems. We have to greatly reduce the grains in our diet. By the way, your kids’ health issues may not appear until their late 30’s into 40’s.

If you are going to supplement, do a quality multi-vitamin, fish oil, and make sure you get enough Vit. D (1000-4000 IU’s/day) and Magnesium (400-1000 mg/day). There is a great deal of benefit in the super green food we offer also as far as other nutrients such as the proteolytic enzymes and probiotics, as well as kelp and algae products.

Why are grains (not ancient grains) a problem? Because they are carbs that break down into SUGAR and they wreak havoc with our blood sugar and insulin responses (glycemic index and load).

They are pro-inflammatory which drives

all chronic diseases (including cholesterol problems) you can think of and a few more.

The best antioxidant that we can take is stabilizing our blood sugar!

The best way to build strong bones is fruits

and vegetables. Wild game, grass fed beef/dairy products have less fat.

High fat dairy is less acidic than low fat =

good.

Systemic acidity and inflammation

is prevalent with chronic disease and cancer. Do not take iron supplements or include it in your multi unless you have been diagnosed by lab work with an iron deficiency.

Your lifestyle alters your chemistry.

If you are constantly stressed, working with

chemicals of any kind, eating and drinking

junk or excess alcohol your body will reflect

that.
