    Drink water first thing in the morning!!

    It Purifies the total internal parts of our system.This encourages elimination of toxins because water raises the level of watery plasma and quickens activity of circulation. Water is a solvent and contains hydrogen, which has a soothing, softening effect upon the body, mind and soul.

    Cells must be immersed in water. Water is the avenue of dispersion for toxin elimination. Blood flow and transport of nourishment also depend upon water. When water is deficient in the body, heat and congestion are possible, making you more susceptible to illness and disease.

    Health Tip of the Day!!-health-benefits-eating-fish-omega-3.jpg

    Fish - Fish is low in fat, high in protein and an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids. Eating oily fish can help to reduce the risk of heart disease and improve your chances of survival following a heart attack. Fish does this by lowering levels of fats called triglycerides in the blood - raised levels are associated with heart disease. Fish oils also appear to help reduce blood clotting and abnormal heart rhythms after a heart attack.

    Children who eat fish may be less likely to develop asthma. It is rich in omega 3 fatty acids can contribute to the health of brain tissue and the retina (the light sensitive tissue lining the inner surface of the eye).

    Breastfed babies of mothers who eat fish have better eyesight, perhaps due to the omega 3 fatty acids transmitted in breast milk.People who regularly eat fish have a lower incidence of depression (depression is linked to low levels of omega 3 fatty acids in the brain).

    Polyunsaturated fatty acids found in many fish may prevent damage to brain cells. Eating fish can also reduce the risk of high blood pressure, which is linked with dementia.

    Which Fish to eat!!

    White fish like cod are a good source of low-fat protein and minerals.

    Oily fish such as sardines, pilchards, salmon have the highest concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids.

    Crab, lobster and mussels come into the shellfish group and contain selenium, thought to have cancer-fighting properties.
