Toss the Resolutions and Begin Permanent New You Solutions!

 

The Living Healthy Movement

Welcome to the new HEPSA Living Healthy Online Blog!  We are starting this New Year off right with a new look, new blog and new mission!  HEPSA Living Healthy wants to help you change your life for the better by joining the HEPSA Living Healthy Movement!  So sign up for this new blog today by clicking – www.livinghealthyonline.org

I am Denine Rogers, a registered licensed dietitian nutritionist and holistic practitioner who have a passion to change people’s lives for the better.  I have decided to start the HEPSA Living Healthy Movement because of the constant problems and complaints that I have received from my clients about making New Year’s Resolutions not New Year Solutions.  Too often we do not keep our resolutions and by the time the end of the year comes we feel like we have failed through the whole year. A resolution is a temporary hopeful fix but a solution is a permanent change!  The HEPSA Living Healthy Movement is on a mission to get you to discover what is holding you back from losing weight, stopping smoking, continuing an exercise plan, changing your relationships with food, etc. Check out joining the HEPSA Living Healthy Movement by signing up at the HEPSA Living Healthy Newsletter – www.livinghealthy1.org where we are making solutions for 2015, not resolutions!

This year 2015 the HEPSA Living Healthy Movement are providing ways to change your life for the better by learning about 12 different topics.  The monthly topics will be:

  1. Eating healthy with whole food nutrition
  2. Cooking healthy meals and snacks
  3. Herbal Medicine and Botanicals
  4. Exercising
  5. Meditation, Tia chi, Yoga and Qi Gong
  6. Aromatherapy
  7. Mind, Body and Spiritual Relationships
  8. Gardening
  9. Integrative Nutrition and Medicine
  10. Complementary Alternative Medicine
  11. Vitamins and Supplements
  12. Homeopathy

So for this whole year, the HEPSA Living Healthy Movement is focusing on making positive changes with your life.  I am asking you to join, the HEPSA Living Healthy Movement by clicking here today.

Thank you so much and start Living Healthy today!

Vitamin and Mineral Supplements

vitamins

Most people are concerned about getting the right amount of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in their diet.  With careful planning, most nutrients can be provided in daily meals and snacks rather than in pill form.  However, vitamin pills may still be required in certain cases:

  • People on low-calorie diets may not get all the vitamins they need because their meals are so restricted.  For these people, vitamin pills provide an easy, efficient way to supplement the diet.
  • Women who are pregnant of breastfeeding may require vitamin and mineral supplements. Pregnant women should pay special attention to iron and folic acid, which are especially difficult to get through diet alone.
  • When people grow older, their metabolism slows down, they eat less, and they absorb nutrients at a slower rate.  Older people can help restore the proper intake of nutrients by taking vitamin and mineral supplements.
  • Some medical conditions and drugs make it difficult for a person’s body to absorb nutrients.  For example, people who suffer from anemia lack enough iron in their blood and often require iron supplements.  Alcohol may also cause vitamin deficiencies by damaging the liver, which is one  of the body’s vitamin storage centers.

If you decide to take vitamins try to rely on healthy foods as the major source nutrients.  However, if you decide to take a vitamin or mineral supplement, check the label for ones that say 100 percent of the Recommended Dietary Allowance for each nutrient.  This means they provide all of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Recommended Dietary Allowance for the average person.  Some vitamins are toxic if taken in excess, so make sure you take them in the proper amounts.  An excess of one vitamin or mineral may also interfere with the absorption of another one.

If you suffer from a specific medical condition, have special dietary needs or want to find out if you should be taking vitamin of mineral supplements, consult your physician or registered dietitian.  Living Healthy have registered dietitian consultations so check  out our website:  Living Healthy.  Most vitamin and minerals supplements are safe when taken as directed but may be waste of money if you’re getting all the nutrients your body needs from a balanced diet.

Alive Expo

Have you ever wanted to come to a health expo that is based on only Alternative Complementary Medicine products and services?  Want to find out what holistic products are safe to use and what organic food products are in your neighborhood?  Then you should come to the Alive! Expo.

Once a year the Alive! Expo come to different cities around the country promoting holistic healthy living for the whole family.    You would learn how to integrate health and wellness into environmentally responsible, green living and to create a positive impact on the world as a whole.  At the Expo you would have a chance to experience all the newest and best natural, organic, green and eco products for your home and family, even the pets!

Some of the types of products and services that were shown recyclable products, hybrid & electric cars, eco fashion and accessories, natural & eco pet products, naturopathic & alternative practitioners, chiropractors, vitamins and supplements, as well as health food retailers and community non-profit organizations and much, much more!!!

I truly enjoyed listening to the speakers who are from a wide range of career positions in the Alternative Medicine field.  It was great to hear about interesting view points on different subjects in the area of a Complementary Alternative  Medicine.  The Healthy Cooking Demonstrations range for raw foods, Farm to Table foods, natural, organic and sustainable dishes.  International natural health speaker Jordan Rubin who is known as America’s Biblical Health Coach and New York Times best selling author of “The Maker’s Diet,” .was the keynote speaker at the Alive Expo.  Dr. Rubin is president of the new Beyond Organics integrated organic food and beverage company products.  Click here to see further information on the Beyond Organics.

ECO-ATHLETE and starting fullback for the Atlanta Falcons – Ovie Mughelli was also guest speaker who talk about his Ovie Mughelli Foundation (OMF) which is to combat the lack of awareness among children about how their environment effects them.  Mr. Mughelli’s foundation gives fun things that kids can relate to — like football — with educational programs and practical information about going green.

So the next time you see that the Alive Expo is in your town, spend a day to learn  about green living, sample nutritional products and listen to healthy alternative information that may improve your life in a positive way.
