Healing Powers of a Ketogenic Diet

Only 2 days ago, I was severely sick. I was up all hours of the night vomiting, having night sweats and total body aches. It was so bad! I rarely ever get sick, the last time I remember being sick was a little over a year ago. I think that had more to do with my immune system being vulnerable due to being so sleep-deprived from having a baby. This time, having my toddler puke in my bed at 12 midnight may have had something to do with it…yuck! Today, I am back and feeling strong, thanks to a no sugar, low carb eating plan.

Disease feeds off of sugar and I believe, from personal experience, if you remove the sugars (including fruit sugars) you can kill the viruses. This applies to most viruses. There has been a lot of talk lately about the healing powers of a ketogenic diet in regards to fighting cancer. Thank goodness, I haven’t dealt with anything close to cancer. I also don’t want to minimize the effects of cancer. I feel true sadness for those whose lives have been affected by cancer. I am happy to say, I don’t rely on the flu shot to ward off the flu, I pay strict attention to what I put in my body, including medications.

Oscillococcinum

For medications, I always go with holistic treatments first. As I become more educated on health, I have become more trusting in holistic health care before mainstream Doctors. I view holistic healthcare as preventative medicine, while western Doctors are more about disease management. Very similar reasons as to why I chose Midwives over Doctors. I appreciate the natural method above man-made anything. I don’t want to take a chance with my health and advise all to do your own research instead of taking advice from anyone…even those wearing a white coat. Yay, to feeling healthy in only 2 days!

Basis Habits Game

I love Basis habits game! I really enjoy picking my goals/ habits based on areas I choose to improve, not some general goal of reaching 10, 000 steps a day. As a fitness professional and mother of 2, my goals vary week-to-week.

Goals I’ve chosen:

  • Wear it- habit to wear the Basis Band more each day.
  • Get more sleep- as a mother of 2, this is a goal based on group effort ;)
  • Move it- I knew I would accomplish this goal merely chasing after my 2 kids.
  • Don’t be a sitter- I loved seeing how long I sit for at one time…not very long with all the demands of motherhood ;)
  • Morning lap- this is the habit that keeps me motivated to create time in the morning for my mommy hour of intense workouts, either weight-training, running, or Yoga.

I really like how Basis habits are fun and easy to understand. When I click on the habit, I receive more specific data, like how many minutes in each zone, how many calories burned, how many steps taken, how many hours I slept and of course the crème de la crème, heart rate.

The best part of having the Basis Band on my wrist is feeling empowered to create a healthier life, like I’m truly in control of creating a healthier me. I feel more in-tune with myself overall and more connected with my mind and body. The data will also be very useful to give realtime feedback to any health professional in the future.

Stay tuned for more updates soon :)

So happy to own my very own Basis Band. Now I can track my lifestyle and improve areas of my life I was otherwise clueless about. As a mother of 2, and a fitness professional, I am excited to know more on my overall lifestyle habits, especially sleep. I will be blogging soon with updates on my experience using the Basis Band so stay tuned!
