Expert Tips for Following Your Health Resolutions

When it comes to setting health resolutions many people feel that if one moment their aim for change doesn’t go to plan, its best to abandon the complete resolution and revert to old ways. However, it doesn’t have to be this way! In today’s blog post, Azadeh Razavi of Nutrition House reveals to us the top three health resolutions she encounters on a daily basis that many want to improve, not just in January! She recommends what you can do for a better year and a healthier, happier you- because that’s the ultimate goal!

Here's what you can do to have your healthiest year yet!

1. Cleansing

A very important part of this clean-up process involves cleansing the toxins that have accumulated in the body over the years. The effects of our toxic world, processed foods, and high stress take a toll on our bodies, and slowly but surely our energy declines and our bodies begin to feel the effects.

Don’t Forget the Fibre!

Fibre while cleansing is a must. Fibre works to absorb toxins within your system and assists in their elimination from the body.

What are the benefits of cleansing?

A good cleansing program with help can ‘kick-start” your health resolutions in many ways:

  • Increase in energy and vitality
  • Enhance elimination
  • Improve liver function
  • Reduce toxic load
  • Assists with weight loss
    • Did you know that your body holds anywhere from five to twenty pounds of excess water and waste?

2. Weight Loss

Weight loss is often at the top of our resolution list. The truth is that weight management is a complex, multifaceted issue. Aside from lifestyle modifications such as activity, sleep and stress management, dietary supplements can significantly help with weight loss.

Weight Management Tips

  • Remove processed and refined foods from your diet as they promote inflammation and hormonal imbalances
  • Include organic, non-GMO, whole foods
  • Eliminate food sensitivities such as gluten, casein, soy, etc which can increase inflammation
  • Include protein with every meal to balance insulin levels
  • Drink additional water or loose-leaf tea in-between meals and during meals. This helps to avoid diluting digestive enzymes.

3. Reducing the Impact Stress

Stress is something that all of us experience. Although it’s natural and healthy to a degree, too much stress and an inability to manage it can have dramatic health consequences for an individual.

The Health Implications of Stress

  • Arthritis, diabetes, heart disease
  • Joint conditions, migraine headaches, metabolic syndrome
  • Obesity risk, poor sexual performance, respiratory issues
  • And weakened immunity all increase in the shadow of long-term stress

Natural Solutions to Reliving Stress

  • Supplements such as omega-3 fatty acids
  • B vitamins and magnesium have been shown to be helpful
  • Traditional remedies such as lemon balm, passionflower, and maca root are plant-based medicinal treatments that have shown to treat stress, anxiety, and associated insomnia


Until next time,
