Individually Fashioned* -   Discover & Embrace Your Destiny
We at Individually Fashioned believe that good health matters! 
 
Therefore, we highly recommend personal quiet time, proper diet, weight management, daily exercise, and rest, be your first order for healthy living. 
 
Let's start with a good night's sleep. Did you know that the proper amount of sleep provides the body, mind and spirit with renewal and restoration? When we choose to turn off the cell phone, laptop, and/or television, we are choosing rest and renewal for our body, mind and spirit.

Another basic addition to our health:  Walking!  It is loaded with benefits: 

Improved circulation, increased metabolism, production of new cells, 'happy' endorphins.  Walking also helps to build bone.  If able, start with a minimum of 20 minutes a day.  If not, start with 5; then increase to 10 and so on ...  If you wait 20 minutes after your meal and exercise 20 minutes, you will burn twice the calories.  This increases your metabolism.  Hence, walking every day promotes many benefits for you and your well-being. I highly recommend purchasing a Fitbit Charge HR to track your steps, sleep, and BPM (beats per minute) throughout each day.  The heart association recommends 10,000 steps a day. 


Rebounding is a great alternative for those who find walking difficult. I have been rebounding since 1985 when my husband bought a mini trampoline for me in hopes that it would help my circulation (varicosities since age 15).  Rebounding does wonders for me.  I've used a combo of walking and rebounding for years. I also use it as an easy way to "add" to my daily steps.  Click here for a list of 33 benefits to Rebounding.



If your life requires a lot of travel, pack a jump rope in your suitcase ... 10 minutes a day is all that's needed to keep your engine running well.  As you develop your skills jumping forwards, include jumping backwards too for it greatly enhances correct posture. 


Stretching, swimming and water exercise
decrease arthritic and back pain.  If you are unable to do a lot of exercises due to a low back pain, building the core is still  necessary.  Try the Abdoer Twist Beginner stretches which enable the user to build the core without having to do sit-ups or similar exercises that could re-injure the low back.  You can purchase the Abdoer Twist used; or order a new one on:  Amazon Smile Abdoer Twist
 

Oatmeal every day will lower your cholesterol.  Add flax, and chia seeds to it for Omega-3.  Drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water throughout the day will also increase regularity, prevent dehydration and decrease wrinkles. 

Delete alcohol* and smoking (marijuana** included), all known to cause cancer.* Decrease the fats and sugars.  (Did you know that sugar acts like glue in your system, gumming up the works? It is also believed to cause inflammation which causes pain! And most recently, cancer is known to feed off of sugar!)

Lowering, and keeping your weight down provides many benefits:
 
It lowers the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and high blood pressure.  Keeping your weight in check can also lower the risk of many different cancers, including breast, colon, kidney, pancreas, and esophagus. Keeping your weight down also lessens the strain on your feet, ankles, knees and hip joints. Every pound you lose takes 4 pounds of pressure off the knees. For most, every 5 lbs. you lose, drops your blood pressure too.  For your convenience, click here:

Add colour to your meals with fruits and vegetables:
Green, Red,Purple, Blue, Orange, and Yellow!


 
These are just a few common sense principles available for living a healthy and enjoyable lifestyle.  We encourage you to begin anew ... it's never too late to start treating yourself well!

I highly recommend "Isotonix" supplements*** especially OPC-3 anti-oxidants each day for prevention of illness! To learn more, click here:  OPC-3.

Now in my 70's, I take Opc-3 & Multivitamin 50+ daily.  OPC-3 is an amazing anti-oxidant! Before discovering it in 2007, I was plagued with repeated sinus infections that required 2 rounds of Levaquin to knock it out; only to get sick again a week later! It was never-ending! A friend recommended that I try OPC-3 and I've had amazing health ever since!  I recommend it for all ages.  If you're under 50, along with the OPC-3, I suggest adding the Isotonix Multivitamin, Advanced B, and/or Calcium Plus - 4-pack.  If you would like to order products, click here:

[*** Isotonic, which means “same pressure,” bears the same chemical resemblance of the body’s blood, plasma and tears. All fluids in the body have a certain concentration, referred to as osmotic pressure. The body’s common osmotic pressure, which is isotonic, allows a consistent maintenance of body tissues. In order for a substance to be absorbed and used in the body’s metabolism, it must be transported in an isotonic state.
 
Isotonix dietary supplements are delivered in an isotonic solution. This means that the body has less work to do in obtaining maximum absorption. The isotonic state of the suspension allows nutrients to pass directly into the small intestine and be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. With Isotonix products, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient while delivering maximum results.]
