I consider my lifestyle fairly balanced and healthy. I’ve jumped head first into the juicing craze to supplement my diet with leafy greens, I drink water constantly, and I prioritize fitness to stay in shape. Still, some days I feel sluggish and could use an extra boost, a feeling I’m sure you and your clients can relate to. Frank King, N.D. D.C., chiropractor and doctor of naturopathy specializing in homeopathic remedies, has three easy-to-follow recommendations to feel better tomorrow.
- Drink half of your body weight in water each day. Dehydrated bodies trap toxins and encourage water retention – a natural defense against the chronic drought, King says.
- Take at least a few minutes every day to connect with nature. According to King, nature brings perpetual revitalization and ongoing renewal, especially when experienced through multiple senses: the smell of freshly turned earth or evergreens in the woods; the touch of cool stream water on your face or feet; the sight of birds on the wing and budding blooms.
- Take a brisk, 10- to 20-minute walk every day. Walking is the simplest, most natural form of exercise.
King’s suggestions are based on eight essentials needed for optimal mental, physical, and spiritual health: empowering the human spirit, water, nutrition, fitness, sleep, nature, relationships, and touch. Many of these are easily accomplished in your spa and worth sharing with current and potential clients when planning their next visit.
