How to Make Copper Infused Water

copper water cup

Copper Infused Water

It’s easy to make copper infused water.

Start with a pure copper  jug, cup or bottle. Amazon has some great copper cups. Just make sure you get unlined, no lacquer, pure copper.

Before going to bed, pour 16 ounces of room temperature water in your copper cup. Let sit while you sleep. Drink the water first thing in the morning. Simple, right?

In Ayurvedic practice, drinking water from a copper vessel is common. The water is being cleansed and ionized while stored in a copper vessel.  Copper infused water is a natural antioxidant that helps balance the three doshas of our body (kapha, vata and pitta). This happens because the copper vessel positively charges the water.
The trace amount of copper in your copper water is safe and healthful, even when added to other normal dietary sources of copper.

Scientifically speaking, when water is stored in a copper vessel for over eight hours, very small quantities of copper get dissolved in this water. This process is called “oligodynamic effect” and has the ability to destroy a wide range of harmful microbes, molds, fungi etc. due to the toxic effect it has on living cells.
This positively charge water is extremely good for health. This water never becomes stale and can be stored for a long time.

Moringa For Clear Thinking

Moringa Can Help Get Rid of the Foggy Mind

Moringa superfood clear mind supplement protein powder

Moringa Superfoods

Keeping a clear head helps us to cope with challenges, reduce stress, keep calm and focused on the tasks at hand, sharpen our creative problem solving skills, and improve overall mental agility.

You can sharpen your brain with mental and physical exercises. Try some puzzle solving, math quizzes, games like Sudoku and chess, or through light aerobic exercises such as brisk walking, swimming and cycling. These steps are helpful to sharpening your brain power and retaining your clarity and focus.

In addition, a balanced diet with good nutrition will help your brain perform at its optimal level.  Moringa is a top Superfood!

Moringa is power-packed with nutrient and minerals, including:

  • Calcium
  • Chloride
  • Chromium
  • Copper
  • Fluorine
  • Iron
  • Manganese
  • Magnesium
  • Molybdenum
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium
  • Selenium
  • Sulfur
  • Zinc
  • Vitamins A, B, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, D, E and K
  • Folic acid
  • 8 amino acids
  • Over 90 nutrients
  • 46 antioxidants

Moringa’s high iron content, which, in a pound for pound comparison is around three times the levels found in spinach, is the perfect brain food. This dietary iron is transformed into hemoglobin, which boosts the oxygen supply to the brain.

It also has zinc, which helps increase the activity between the left and right hemispheres of the brain.

All 18 amino acids are found in Moringa and play a major role in neurotransmission which can be depleted in times of stress and sleep deprivation.

We like these  Moringa products – including capsules and powders – offers you the chance to nurture your focus, clarity, and mental agility easily and effectively.

Say hello to Mother Nature’s own medicine cabinet, and say goodbye to fatigue and confusion.

As a high protein food and a rich source of the amino acid tryptophan, moringa helps to promote the “feel good” hormone serotonin.  Moringa is also rich in antioxidants and compounds that improve thyroid health, which makes it beneficial for maintaining high energy levels plus fighting fatigue, depression, low libido, moods swings and insomnia.

Carb Blocking Coffee Butter and Coconut Oil

Coffee Butter Coconut Oil Drink for weight loss

Coffee Butter Coconut Oil Drink

There are many “recipes” for making coffee with butter and coconut oil.  I have a simple way to do it. You need three ingredients. Yep you guessed it… Coffee, Butter and Coconut Oil!

I start with my favorite alternative immune boosting coffee, virgin coconut oil from Tropical Traditions and real Grass Fed Butter unsalted.

To start, make your coffee, add to blender with 1 teaspoon unsalted butter from grass-fed cows (yes start with 1 tsp and add to it) and 1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil. Too much butter and coconut oil can cause nausea and diarrhea for many people. Blend up till nice and frothy.

It should taste like a frothy Latte. You can add some vanilla if you like but see if you like it plain.

I drink two kinds of coffee,  a special organic coffee that cuts cravings and blocks carb absorption or Peace coffee, a local fair trade coffee company.

Using grass-fed butter is the biggest rule to follow … If you use quality ingredients and blend it up, it’s sort of like a latte!

Take Care of Your Body Today

all the Money in the world can't buy back good health

Take Care Now

“Your body is precious. It is our vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care.” ~Buddha

Your body is not indestructible so you have to take care of it everyday. There’s only so far we can push them before they start to fail.

What can we do for our bodies to treat it well?

1. Take time for exercise.
I admit that I’m not a huge fan of this one because physical activity is part of my 40 hour work week.  Everyday I make sure that I keep my limbs limber by going for a walk with the dogs.  Being in nature is great for Mind Body & Soul.

Practicing some basic yoga is a wonderful way to keep your body flexible.  Even a little activity can have a great impact.

Regular exercise helps prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, a number of types of cancer, arthritis and falls.

2. Get enough good sleep.
If you’re tired, even if you feel that you need to get more done, give yourself permission to sleep. Your mind and body uses the sleep time to heal. Some may have reasons that keep sleep from being as refreshing as they might be for others, but rest still makes a difference.

When you’re overtired, you’re more likely to snap at your boss, or burst into tears, or start laughing uncontrollably.

3. Eat well and enjoy food.
We are being more mindful of what we eat nowadays. We have to be almost on guard considering the state of the food we consume.

Eating well means feeding your body what it needs, in the most natural way you can manage and afford. Changing how you eat doesn’t have to happen in one day.  You could add fruit or veggies to one meal a day or swap a cup of coffee for a glass of water instead. Adding superfoods to a smoothie is an easy way to get good nutrition.

Pay attention to flavors, textures, and smells.

4. Listen to pain.
When we have pain it means that something has gone wrong, and your body is trying to tell you. You might pay little attention to pain unless it becomes unbearable. Pain no matter how small, shouldn’t be brushed aside because it represents damage to our bodies. Ignore pain now and it could come back to haunt you later.

If the purpose of pain is to protect the body from further damage, we need to listen.

5. Slow down.
We live in a world where we have to use all our waking hours to get things done. Our family depends on us, our career demands 110% so we squeeze every second out of our day at record speed. But we need to think about how our flesh, bones, muscles, organs, our whole body will eventually suffer.

Your body is precious, so don’t neglect it.  Take at least an hour out of your day a few times a week to care for it. Sleep, eat, rest, get a massage.

Show your body the same compassion that you show everyone else. It needs it just as much.

Turmeric For Sore Muscle Pain

Muscle Pain Relief With Turmeric

You can use Turmeric in place of OTC pain relievers

Turmeric is the spice that gives curry its distinctive flavor and coloring.  Turmeric also has a place in your medicine cabinet for it’s pain-relief benefits. New research suggests that turmeric possesses anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties and also helps to improve circulation and prevent blood clotting. Turmeric has been used in traditional medicines for easing the pain of sprains, strains, bruises and joint inflammation, as well as for treating skin and digestive issues. The healing power of turmeric comes from its active ingredient – curcumin, which lowers the levels of two enzymes in the body that cause inflammation.

MIND – BODY- SOUL Superfoods for busy people.

In a previous study in the Journal of Pain Research, curcumin, the principal curcuminoid of turmeric, has demonstrated a potent pain-relieving effect, even greater than 500 mg of acetaminophen. This study shows that not only is curcumin an effective pain-relieving natural remedy, it also helps prevent and heal muscle injuries and inflammation.

Don’t worry – you don’t need to eat turmeric by the spoonful! Just keep a jar of the powdered spice in your kitchen and add a little to your cooking in place of salt and pepper. If you want a daily dose of turmeric it’s in the three Superfood Shots.
