Water is life!
Nothing on Earth survives without water because water is life! The human body is comprised of more than 70% water so keeping yourself hydrated with clean healthy water is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. You need water to regulate body temperature and to provide the means for nutrients to travel to your organs and tissues. It also helps transport oxygen to your cells, removes waste, and protects your joints and organs. Many people realize that the quality of their drinking water may not ideal but have you ever considered what is in your water and that it might actually be making you sick?
Is any one one water bottle truly better than another? Perhaps not, but as with all things it's all in the eye of the beholder. Choosing the best water bottle for yourself or your family can be tricky. With millions of disposable plastic water bottles ending up in landfill each year, it's important to find the best reusable water bottle for your daily needs so that you carry your water bottle with you and feel comfortable using it. With this handy guide we'll help you determine which reusable water bottle best suits your needs.
Although it's mostly an undiscussed subject there is an alternative to pads and tampons that unlike a tampon which absorbs the blood along with the vagina’s natural secretions, a menstrual cup simply holds the fluids until you remove it – so they don't dry out the vagina and don't hold the Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) risk that tampons do. A menstrual cup is a healthier alternative for our bodies, our purse and the environment.
Body brushing is a great treatment for cellulite reduction, lymphatic drainage and also helps with the disease Keratosis Pilaris where your skin gets red bumps. Dry body brushing on a regular basis has been shown to drastically improve the skin’s texture and appearance. It’s a quick and easy way to help detox and cleanse the body, reduce cellulite, and stimulate the senses so you can flaunt your legs and arms in confidence! Using a natural body brush provides better results than a synthetic body brush because the natural plant bristles have tiny hooks and imperfections which gather the dead skin while sweeping over the body. The ends of the bristles are slightly frayed, which is why the natural bristles in our dry body brushes don’t scratch the skin.
