What you put into your body affects how you feel each and every day. Food is the fuel that your body needs to continue to power and heal itself on a daily basis. Diets that are high in carbohydrates, have pH or omega-3 imbalances or are nutrient deficient have negative effects and long term health consequences. Symptoms such as depression, brain fog, stress and fatigue can be the result of poor food choices.
Exercise allows your body to take in higher levels of oxygen and creates lean muscle that keeps both your body and mind healthy. This is your opportunity to decrease fat and increase lean muscle tissue. Studies have shown that exercise consistently match or exceed the benefits of antidepressants.
Toxins and chemicals surround us in our everyday lives and are included in items such as medications, refined foods, household cleaners and the items we cook with! Each of these toxins affects our bodies in a negative way and inhibits us from functioning at optimal levels.
Optimal Rest & Recovery
Rest and recovery is one of the key essentials to actualizing your physical and mental performance. It helps to turn your body into a muscle building, fat burning machine.
