These days, more than ever having good health is essential. Although a lot of desire and time is spent towards collecting material objects, if we do not have good health, these precious items become worthless. Arguably, nothing is more important than one’s health. Thankfully there are more than a few ways to keep your body and mind in good condition. You’ve probably heard of them before, the old standards of eating a balanced diet and getting exercise. While these are definitely truisms, there are also other more specific health remedies that can target specific ailments or needs that you need addressed.
For instance, aloe vera the plant is well known to be an ointment used for sun burns. Aloe vera can soothe the skin and effectively reduce the stinging and redness. Yet did you know that aloe vera can be used internally as well? Aloe vera juice benefits the body too when taken internally. In fact many people who detox have the lesser known option of using an aloe vera colon cleanse, which is another effective way to reduce and eliminate the wastes trapped in your body. Aloe vera can be eaten straight from the leaf as well. Its juicy gelatinous pulp can be scrapped from the inside of the leaf and added into as smoothie to make a very nutritious breakfast or snack.
Another healthy tip that is often overlooked is getting adequate amounts of water. Water is essential to the proper functioning of our bodies. Often when people are temporarily suffering from drowsiness, poor memory, lack of concentration or a “foggy brain” the answer is simply; they are low on water! Coffee and other caffeinated beverages are the biggest culprits in dehydration. For every cup of coffee you drink ( or soda for that matter) the body needs at least 4 glasses of water to replace what it lost.
