The Surprising Ways Water Affects Our Health

WATER.

We all know that water is essential for life. But did you know that it can also have a profound impact on your mental well-being? That's right! Anxiety, physical and mental fatigue, and even your mood can be improved by simply drinking more water. 

Not to mention, it is also essential for flushing toxins out of your system, regulating body temperature and keeping your skin healthy. We focus better, nutrients are carried to cells and it keeps our joints lubricated. 

Next time you are feeling stressed or run down, check your hydration! And no... juice and soda obviously are not water but.... coffee and teas also don't count just because they are made with water! ;) 

The average adult needs 8.5 cups of water daily. But stats show that most people only drink 1.5 cups!!! Say what? Can you imagine the difference in all the areas of you added in an additional 7 cups of water daily?! What a difference that might make in all areas of your health! 

Thinking points:

How much water do you drink daily? What are your tips for drinking more or even hitting your goal? Track symptoms and note what changes as you increase water intake (including water-filled foods like cucumbers and salads) and how you feel. 

Sometimes simple changes make big impact. <3 


Are your Hormones JACKED??

It seems like it has been awhile but this couldn’t wait! If you know me even a little bit, you know I’m PASSIONATE about natural health, remedies, and hormones, in part because of how insanely critical they are, but also in part because of how misunderstood they are. Hormones don’t get the credit they deserve in our health! So many of the most common complaints and health issues are actually SYMPTOMS of hormonal issues. So many health issues- including mental health- are often influenced by hormones! 
Part of my passion comes from the dramatic rise in use of antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications. There may be a time and place for using these products. However, anxiety and depression are often SYMPTOMS of underlying hormonal issues. And when we don't get the the root of the problem, we are only treating the symptom. As an Integrative Mental Health Practitioner, I attempt to educate my clients on the benefits of targeting the ROOT of the issues! 

Let’s look at just SOME of the things our hormones influence:
  • Headaches
  • Cravings
  • Appetite
  • Body fat distribution
  • Ease of fat loss
  • Propensity to store fat
  • PCOS
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Mood swings
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Fatigue
  • Satiety
  • Workout performance
  • Workout recovery
  • Sexual arousal
  • Ability to climax
  • Immune responses
  • Digestion
  • Ability to focus
There are more... Can you believe it?! These are the most common ones! Fortunately there are ways we can help to normalize our hormones. Between dietary factors, lifestyle and supplements, you can help balance your hormones! 

In fact, I’ve been on my own mission to balance my hormones- hormones that I know have been out of balance for a LOOOOONG time! I began LOOKING for a great hormone balancing/optimizing/normalizing supplement years ago and I am THRILLED that my fave supplement company decided to step up and develop one. 

I am thrilled to say that it it NOW available with a "for her" version and a "for him" version.


Since I am all about education,  I want you to understand what it is, what it does and what makes it unique and effective. I really hope you’ll do that before you jump to purchase, because I want you to really grasp all that it can do. Check out the facts sheet HERE to learn more! 
If you want to grab IGNITE, pop over here to grab yours! And the Happy Mood Pack is a great one to help with some of those digestive and hormonal issues. I cannot wait to hear your stories about this product, and I look forward to share mine!
Much love (and balanced hormones)! xoxo, Judith
