Keep Calm and Detox On

Top 10 Healthy Habits

Add these healthy habits into your life and feel better naturally!

  • Keep cellphones away from body:
    Studies show possible link between cellphones and cancer
  • Eco-friendly cleaners:
    Use natural floor, bathroom and kitchen cleaners (like vinegar)
  • Mouth hygiene:
    Brush teeth with non-triclosan and antibiotic-free toothpaste
  • Hydrate: drink filtered or Reverse Osmosis water
  • Skin: use mineral-based makeup (check out EWG.org)
  • Lymph health: use deodorant – not antiperspirant
  • Sleep hygiene: Sleep away from emfs and in complete darkness
  • Circadian rhythm: get outside everyday for at least 1/2 hour as this helps to set our daytime/night time rhythms and helps with sleep.
  • Lung health: take 100 deep breaths/day
  • Heart health: exercise everyday!

We help patients implement these healthy habits at our natural health office in Mississauga.  If you would like help implementing them, we have a naturopathic group detox program starting soon.

Sincerely,

Kirsten Almon ND
