Optimal Lifestyle Suggestions

"Walking is man's best medicine"

Note: These are basic suggestions for the general population. Seek the advice of your practitioner for further recommendations.

Water: Drink purified room temperature water - 50 ounces of water for every 100 lbs of body weight. Water and shower filters are recommended.  Choose from quality water filters like Berkey, Aquatrue reverse osmosis or other reverse osmosis systems, Aquasana. If you purchase bottled water, my favorite bottled waters are Icelandic, Poland Spring Origin, Rainfresh, Italian Still or Sparkling, Italian sparkling mineral water.

I do not recommend waters bottled in thin “crunchy” plastics that leach higher contents of phthalates and other chemicals into the water.

Sunshine:  If weather permits, absorb 10-20min of sunlight to skin every day without sunscreen to >50% of uncovered skin surface to absorb natural Vitamin D.

Exercise at least 3x weekly as tolerated

Cooking utensils:  Ceramic cookware is ideal.  Glass cookware is acceptable. Stainless steel and cast iron skillets may be used on occasion although they could leach out some heavy metals such as nickel and too much iron.  Avoid using aluminum, Teflon, and Silverstone type of non-stick cookware, and plastic.

More tips: Remove metal jewelry from body at bedtime.

Do NOT place a cell phone by your bed.  Charge it in another room during the night and put it on airplane mode if it is not needed during the night.

Turn off the wi-fi at night while you are sleeping.

Wear non-underwire bras as much as possible.

Use products for the hair, skin, toothpaste that do not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfates and fluoride.
