How Massage Therapy Connects Your Body And Mind

So often we talk about the mind and body connection, how one impacts the other. In truth, there is no such thing as a mind/body connection – they are the same thing. You are a whole, not just parts of you. Any thought or feeling or physical sensation you have will have an impact on the rest of you. It is impossible to separate.

Massage is not only for your physical health. The benefits also extend to your emotional and mental health.

Foods That Fight Inflammation

Heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, arthritis, acid reflux, bacterial or viral infections, candidiasis, and acne could all be signs of chronic, low-grade inflammation in the body. Chronic, low-grade inflammation is considered a leading cause of premature aging and disease.

Foods that naturally fight inflammation can reduce this damaging and disease-promoting inflammatory cascade to bring your body back into balance:

Broccoli. High in vitamin C and calcium, broccoli is also known to fight inflammation of the eye.

Wild-caught salmon. Salmon is another prime source of beneficial omega-3s, and we recommend eating other fatty fish like cod and sardines too.

Tart cherries. Once you’ve built your inner ecosystem to reach stage 2 of the Body Ecology Diet, tart cherries can be a powerful and delicious anti-inflammatory food, reducing inflammation ten times better than aspirin.

Soaked walnuts. Soaked walnuts are another tasty anti-inflammatory snack on stage 2 of the Body Ecology Diet, high in vitamin E and heart-healthy omega-3s. Walnuts are best soaked before eating to make them easier to digest.

Onions and garlic. Onions are naturally high in the potent antioxidant quercetin, known to help the body fight inflammation. Garlic, as an anti-inflammatory, contains sulfur compounds that stimulate the immune system to fight disease.

Spinach. High in inflammation-reducing antioxidants called carotenoids, spinach is also an excellent source of vitamin E.

Ginger and turmeric. Turmeric contains curcumin, an ancient spice compound with countless anti-inflammatory benefits; similar to turmeric, ginger can also reduce levels of inflammation in the body and may ease pain related to arthritis.

Yoga in the Morning

The best morning workout you can do to wake up your body is a combination of heart raising exercises, strength and mixing up stretching yoga poses throughout the workout. This 15 minute strength and stretch yoga class will do exactly that! It will get your heart rate up, get you sweating, working your abs, and stretching your shoulders, hamstrings, and upper body.

 

What is the Best Time to Meditate?

It is helpful to meditate early in the morning or late at night because the world is quieter at these times. It’s best to always meditate at the same time everyday. This creates balance, and will help you to incorporate meditation as part of your life.
