6 simple steps to health that you can start now

(NaturalNews) We are quickly approaching New Year's Day and the annual accounting that accompanies it. Did you keep your New Year's resolutions last year? The year before?

Most of the time, resolutions focus on health issues.
  • I will lose weight.
  • I will get healthy.
  • I will completely change the way I eat.
Within weeks we give up, defeated.

If you're not healthy, if you continue to say to yourself, "I wish I could eat like that or I will I could take care of myself that well," then do it. If the change is radical, approach it with a project plan - one step at a time.

Step one

One of the reasons change is hard is because it usually starts with taking away something. Instead, start the other way around. Every day, drink a smoothie. It doesn't matter if you have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack. Just drink a nutrient dense smoothie. There are two important ingredients: a high quality nutrition powder and, depending on the diet, a balanced oil supplement. In a blender, start with fresh or frozen fruit, cover with juice (not always necessary when using fresh fruit), add two tablespoons of nutrition powder, a tablespoon of flaxseed oil or an omega oil blend, and as much kale or spinach or other greens you can handle.

Step two

Your enthusiasm for this project will grow as each step makes a significant difference in the way you feel. Step two is to eat a large salad every day. No, I am not talking about a bowl of lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers. I am talking about an incredibly nutritious salad filled with lots of raw veggies. Make it with at least 12 different vegetables, and throw in some herbs and seeds as well. Be sure to add fresh garlic, turmeric, and pepper for synergistic health benefits. Make it big and munch on it all day if you can't finish it in one sitting. You might find it easier to make a bunch of this salad twice a week.

Step three

Between your daily smoothie and your daily salad, you are going to be feeling so much better. Your body is getting the nutrition it needs to repair damage and to thrive on a cellular level. Now that you are feeling better, are you ready to feel a whole lot better? If it's time, move on to step three. Clean out your kitchen. Get rid of all the crappy processed food filled with artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, MSG, high fructose corn syrup, GMOs, trans fats, and other disgusting chemicals.

You want to eat whole foods, real foods, organic foods. But while we're taking something away, let's add something else. One of the most amazing things you can do for your body is to take up drinking a gallon of cranberry stevia lemonade a day. Drink it throughout the day.

Step four

Increase the amount of raw foods you eat. Aim for 80% raw - more vegetables than fruit.

Step five

It's time to detox, and balance the gut's eco-system (though the aforementioned salads have made a huge difference already). True health is achieved by providing the body with the nutrition it needs and ridding it of the parasites, yeast, heavy metals, chemicals, and other garbage that doesn't belong.

You have the choice to take each of these steps fast or slow. The point is, be sure each step is ingrained before moving on. If it takes you a month per step, in six months you will be eating the healthiest diet possible. If it takes you two months per step, it will take a year. But if it does, a year from now you will have totally changed your health.

Step six

Do squats. Start with a few, and do a few more every day. Get up to 100 every day. Take your time, and work your way up.
