What’s the easiest way to explain functional health.

Functional health is the opposite of dysfunctional health.

Meaning that we want our bodies to function at optimal peak performance so that it does what it is naturally designed to do.

ie. detox, build new cells & muscle, digest food, metabolize nutrients, etc…

When anything of these functions goes astray due to changes in diet or lifestyle, our immune system may become compromised.

If you are not providing your body with the right support, you may end up with bacteria and viruses becoming your evil enemies.

The end result is that your immune system is suppressed and you develop a cold or flu.

The GOOD news is that you can focus on your functional health all year long, which if done well and properly, should help keep you from getting sick.

Try out these 6 simple tips to help keep your functional health in tip-top shape:

1). Eat to support healthy blood sugar balance

Look to reduce/limit any foods with added or high natural sugar contents

High sugar spikes are known to cause immune dysfunction

2). Naturally optimize your vitamin D levels

Eat trout, salmon, and mackerel, eat eggs, & get natural exposure to sunlight every day

Getting your levels at optimal ranges has been linked to improved immune response

3). Focus on improving your sleep quality and quantity

Strive for 7-9 hours of sleep every night and keep a consistent sleep schedule every day

When sleep suffers, so does your immune health, which in turn may lead to other issues

4). Manage your stress levels

Focus on self-care, time in nature, breathing exercises, yoga, and reading a real book

When stress is high, your immune function becomes compromised

5). Get daily exercise/movement

Walking, biking, running, working out at the gym, cleaning your house, or yardwork all work

Each supports lymphatic flow keeping your immune function running well

6). Add in a wide variety of phytonutrients from herbs and spices

Ginger, cinnamon, turmeric, clove, cilantro, parsley, and mint are all amazing

Each one has specific compounds within that support cellular healing
