Exercise and Foot Health
+ The Healing Power of Juicing
Any type of exercise can put increased pressure on the arch of the foot. The ground force impact (GFI) of walking, jogging or running adds to the downward pressure of gravity, and can cause the arch to pronate or flatten. When this happens the ankle, knee, hip and back can shift out of position as well. Many back, shoulder and neck concerns are caused by the arch falling or flattening as a result of gravity. Heel spurs, bunions and plantar fasciitis are very common concerns with the feet. The older we get the more of a problem this can become because gravity has had longer to work against proper foot alignment. Cardiovascular Training and Strength Training can add extra weight to the body while working out, which puts more weight on all of the joints including the feet. Using a Vibration Platform before and after a cardio or strength workout can relieve discomfort caused by gravity, and improve the health of the feet and the legs.
A consideration is to use a foot orthotic that is also afoot realigner. It is custom fitted to the foot, and is based on the correct alignment of the arch. This is very beneficial for plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, bunions, and sore, tired feet. The ‘Flex Foot Orthotic’ has a proven track record, and we have used it effectively for over 25 years with thousands of our clients.
The Healing Power of Juicing!
Freshly made RAW vegetable and fruit juices are a wonderful source of high quality nutrition that can be directly absorbed by the body in about 10 to 15 minutes. This is because the fiber has been removed, and the normal 2 to 3 hours for digestion is not necessary. There is no food on earth that can equal the healing and restorative powers of these freshly made RAW juices. An 8 ounce serving of vegetable juice could provide the nutrients of several pounds of vegetables. Because of the abundance of nutrients, the therapeutic benefits are so great that these juices are a ‘Natural Medicine’ which can feed and stimulate the body to overcome disease, and to reach a much higher level of health.
Juices possess definite medicinal properties. Juices have a cleansing and detoxifying effect on the whole body. They purify the blood, neutralize waste products, and help build healthy tissue. They are rightfully called the ‘internal baths of health and youth.’ Juices provide an abundance of vitamins, minerals, enzymes,trace elements, and other necessary nutrients. Different vegetable and fruit juices have different therapeutic effects in the system. They can also be used in different combinations to increase their desired effectiveness.
RAW carrot juice is a natural solvent for ulcerous and cancerous conditions. It can also help prevent infections and it benefits the adrenal glands. Carrot juice is very beneficial for intestinal and liver diseases. In cleaning up the liver sometimes there is more waste than the intestinal and urinary channels can handle, and the remainder is passed to the lymph system and is eliminated through the skin. Carrot juice has so many therapeutic benefits, and it combines so well with other juices, that it is used as the base for many healing juice formulas.
RAW beet juice is another excellent juice. It contains a very high quality iron, and is capable of building up the red blood cells. If enough is consumed the stool and urine will turn a reddish colour. The high potassium content provides excellent nourishment to the entire body. The natural, organic chlorine content of 8% is an amazing cleanser for the liver, kidneys, gall bladder, and the lymphatic system. This is why if a person consumes more than the recommended amount of beet juice they can experience a ‘cleansing reaction’. Beet juice could be combined with carrot juice in the ratio of ¼ beet to ¾ carrot.
Some of the other fruits and vegetables that can be used in therapeutic juices include: Apple, Asparagus, Brussel Sprouts, Beet tops, Cabbage, Celery, Coconut, Cucumber, Dandelion, Endive, Grapefruit, Green Beans, Green Peppers, Horseradish, Kale, Lemon, Lettuce, Orange, Parsley, Pomegranate, Potato, Radish, Red Peppers, Spinach, Turnip, and Watercress. As an average, one to three 4 ounce glasses are usually recommended per day on an empty stomach, and this can be adjusted for each person’s individual needs. If too much is taken a person might experience a ‘cleansing reaction’. This is perfectly natural because our body is starting to do a ‘house cleaning’. One should not jump to the conclusion that the juice does not agree with them, but rather the high quantity of fresh vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and trace elements are nourishing and stimulating the cells and tissues to throw off old wastes and to function the way they were designed to do.
One of the most important things to remember about raw juices is that drinking raw juices is the best way to put living enzymes into your body. When vegetables or fruit are cooked the enzymes are destroyed by the heat. Making your own fresh, raw vegetable, fruit, and green plant juices and smoothies isthe best wayto get an abundance of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and trace elements into your body!
