Here are two simple ways to keep yourself well. On top of the world, in fact!
Sugar triggers inflammation. Sugar suppresses the immune system. Excess sugar consumption over hours and days increases the chances of coming down with a cold or flu like illness.
Eating a balanced whole foods diet that minimizes processed grains such as bread, wheat and pasta helps keep your sugar consumption at a healthy level. Eliminating processed packaged foods with added sugar is also required. So read your labels and know what you are putting in your body.
Sleep deprivation is common. Trouble falling asleep. Waking up in the middle of the night, sometimes more than once. Unable to get back to sleep. What a drag!
Sleeping pills mess with your brain and have dangerous side effects. Avoid them.
Poor sleep is mainly a bad habit. Something you can train yourself out of. Regular bed times, TV and computers off -- better yet, keep them out of the bedroom. 7-9 hours a night works for most.
