How To Be Perfectly Healthy Without Taking Supplements

Aug 18, 2007
Many people feel that they do not need nutritional supplements to be healthy or that supplements are useless. Even though high quality supplements have been shown to improve overall health you don't have to take them. If you don't you want to take supplements just make sure that you follow these guidelines.

First, you need to provide your body with an adequate daily amount of high quality protein, containing all nine essential amino acids. This ensures your energy levels and muscle health. Then you need to stay away from all white flour products such as pasta, bagels, and different breads.

You should also stay away from all foods and oils containing hydrogenated and/or trans fats, as well as all fast food, including pizza. These contain toxins that weaken your immune system, make us fat , and lethargic.

You also need to make sure that you drink six to eight cups of purified water every day, otherwise you will get dehydrated. You need to eat a minimum of ten to twelve servings of fresh fruits and vegetables every day, that is how you will be getting most of your vitamins and minerals.

At least fifty percent of your diet should be raw, organic food, that means natural and uncooked. Vegetables, for example, lose most of their nutritious content when they are exposed to high heat (cooking).

You also can't eat any refined, processed, packaged, or instant foods. Don't even think about consuming sugar, (that means all junk food). Sugar causes weight gain, immune weakness and will weaken your bones and teeth.

If you still don't want to consider taking supplements to help your body get the vitamins and minerals it needs to maintain proper health then you also can't consume any coffee, it dehydrates you. Also no recreational drugs, alcohol, nicotine, or medications.

These all contain harmful toxins that weaken your immune system and literally "poison" your body. Don't forget about exercising for at least thirty minutes every day.

Toxins also come from eating non-organic food that has been fertilized, sprayed with pesticides, loaded with growth hormones and antibiotics. The toxins that get onto our body come from cosmetics, sun tan lotion, and chlorine from tap and pool water. Those should be avoided as well if you don't want to take supplements and remain in optimal health.

You also should not breathe in any toxic chemicals that might be in the air. These could come from paint, construction materials, indoor cleaners, which are loaded with chemicals, and outdoor pollution.

To remain healthy without high quality supplements you also need to have a healthy family history and do not suffer from any conditions, illness, or health challenges. As you can see maintaining optimal health without taking supplements is difficult, but it can be done.

In my opinion, the best way to achieve optimal health is to follow as many of the above guidelines as possible, but to also take high quality supplements, that way you can live a little and don't have to be obsessed with what you are putting into and onto your body everyday.

In today's world it is almost impossible to live a lifestyle catered to all of the above restrictions so do your body a favor and take natural supplements. You will notice a difference.

There are a lot of natural supplement companies out there, so do your own research and don't beleive everything you hear or read. To ensure the supplements you buy are of highest quality, the nutrition company should release all of the research and ingredients that goes into each product before you have to buy it.

That way you can be sure of what you are putting into your body and that it has been rigorously tested for potency and purity. The supplements you decide to buy should also come with a money back guarantee, that way you can try the supplements, risk free, and send them back if they are not making a difference.
