You regularly take vitamins and supplements to boost your immune system and keep those pesky ailments and diseases away. You make sure you drink your 8 glasses of water each day to keep your body well-hydrated. You exercise regularly, too, to maintain a healthy body and a healthy heart. Did you know that you can also maintain a healthy heart by keeping an open heart?

Of course, by that we do not pertain to a surgery at all, in fact, we would like to veer as far away from it. What we actually mean by it is keeping an open heart that embraces new situations without stressing over it unnecessarily, keep a giving heart that readily forgives when it is called for or generous enough to send gifts just because. By practicing that, you do not only keep your heart healthy, you will also stay young minus Botox or cosmetic surgery.

Summer health tip: Drink more water

Water can do a lot of things to keep our body in tip top shape. Enough fluid intake keeps us from getting dehydrated from heat exhaustion as a result of various strenuous physical activity. Water maintains the glow of our skin as it hydrates and replaces dead skin cell. Our internal organs benefit from the water we take as it flushes out toxins from our system. You can have plain or fruit juice mix everyday. Seasonal fruits are a good source of fluid and excellent thirst quenchers. We don’t need to be adept on Symbol LS2208 to know that our body needs at least 8 to 10 glasses of water everyday. Let’s drink (more water) to good health!

Water is to Life

Even history will tell us that water is one, if not the most, vital part of human existence. Old tales of cities and civilizations forming around the nearest bodies of water will say a lot about the great role water plays in our daily life. Even our body, for the most part, is composed of water. People can go for a few days on end without food, but never without water. We need water to hydrate, lubricate and nourish our bodies for our bodily functions to operate well. It is also of paramount importance to make sure that we are drinking and using the cleanest and purest water to us to stay healthy, some people would even use a water purifier or a water softener at home, to always be on the safe side.

Simple remedy to cure common colds and flu

I’ve learned something from a friend today. She said she treats common cold and flu by using a holistic approach. Her secret, well not a secret where to buy gold bullion, but a simple remedy that includes gargling with hydrogen peroxide. I haven’t tried this one yet.

In addition to her supplements, she takes vitamin D. Vitamin D is effective in protecting people against flu (swine flu) and other illnesses.

And the common remedy that we know: take plenty of water, wash your hand frequently, and take plenty of rest. Can you share more health tips to the list?
