6 Steps to Healthy Aging
Updated: Jan 27, 2020
1. MORNING ROUTINE RECOMMENDATIONS
A morning routine will set the tone for the rest of the day. Try to start your morning the night before. This will relieve stress, save time and will help create a better mindset!
Keep Hydrated – It is important to drink water, especially when you wake up!
Try boosting your morning water with these simple additions:
Apple cider vinegar (raw with the mother)
Ginger tea (great for inflammation & digestion)
Include a high-quality protein
This is essential to your breakfast. Statistically, skipping breakfast is linked to being overweight. Eating a good quality protein can help balance blood sugar and cholesterol. In addition, it will provide you with more energy and make you more alert unlike carbs.
Think positive thoughts!
You are a priority.
2. DRINK YOUR WAY TO HEALTH WITH HERBAL TEAS
Herbal teas are an easy and great way to boost your health.
Try adding some of the following to your routine:
3. SUPPLEMENT SUPPORT
By having a good foundation, you will be able to maintain, support and rebuild your health. I recommend a high-quality fish oil/ viamin D & K2/ omega-3 fatty acid supplement (examples: OmegaAvail Ultra with lipase, Krill Oil, Vitamin D Supreme, or Emulsi-D3). In addition, I recommend a good probiotic or consuming fermented foods daily.
Others you might consider:
Arthritis/Inflammation: Curcum-Evail, High Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Brain Support: Brain Vitale, Gingko
Digestion: GI Revive w/ meals, Digestive Bitters, L-glutamine
4. BOOST YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE
Avoid harmful toxins and replace with healthful products. Your skin absorbs everything you put on it. Studies have said that 60% of chemicals in cosmetics end up in your blood stream. It is estimated that 5 pounds of cosmetics are being absorbed every year!! It only takes about 26 seconds for your skin to absorb cosmetics and go directly into the bloodstream. Truly, the bottom line is to make sure you put natural and healthy cosmetics on your skin.
What I love to use for skin health:
Chaga Cream - Keep your skin hydrated
Olive oil – Try using this instead of a harsh makeup remover
Collagen - Supports skin elasticity & lessens wrinkles
HSN Complex - Great for thin hair and breaking/brittle nails
Dry Skin Brushing - Improves cellulite & is great for the lymphatics
5. GET YOUR MOVE ON
Keep active as you age. If you don’t “use it” you will “lose it.”
Make exercise fun: Take a pet on a walk, Rebounder, Yoga , Gym, classes, etc.
6. TOP AGING HEALTH FOODS

Wild caught Alaskan salmon: Sock-eye is the best, rich in astaxanthin
