In my welcome podcast, I mentioned the doTERRA wellness triangle. Here it is in its most simple form. As you can see, it’s like a tower with each floor balanced on the one below and supporting the one above. Each floor is essential to the integrity of the structure. If one floor is poorly constructed or neglected, it can cause damage to the others. There is also an order to the floors, assuring that the tower will be strong, stable, and symmetrical. And, as with a tower, it’s meant to be built from the foundation up.
Nutrition is foundational. While there are many diets and cultural favorites, whole fresh foods are required for optimal digestion and body function. And water – your body works best when you drink at least half your body weight (pounds) in ounces of water. When you add doTERRA Lemon essential oil to each glass of water throughout the day, you give yourself an ongoing gentle internal cleanse and nutritional support without the acid from juice that could damage tooth enamel.
I am a huge fan of eating according to your blood type. There is a video on my YouTube channel that goes into why choosing foods most suited to your blood type can support overall wellness in a simple yet customizable way.The most important thing is to listen to your own body and adjust accordingly. If you have found a way of eating that makes you feel alive and vibrant, keep walking that path.
A non-negotiable for all ages is taking top quality daily supplements – vitamins, minerals, omegas, antioxidants – to assure that the good food we take in is properly digested and sent to the rest of the body in a form that guarantees optimal absorption, use, and elimination. I choose to take a trio of daily supplements offered by doTERRA and formulated to work together to provide proper amounts and proportions of ingredients. It is called the Lifelong Vitality Pack and includes: MicroPLEX VMz Food Nutrient Complex, xEOMega Essential Oil Omega Complex, and Alpha CRS+ Cellular Vitality Complex. Together with TerraZyme Digestive Enzyme Complex and PB Assist+ Probiotic Defense Formula, I guarantee that the food I so carefully grow, harvest, and prepare gives maximum nourishment to my brain, heart, gut, and all my other organs and body systems. The daily trio supplements provide such excellent nourishment and are so safe that many of my friends use them as prenatal supplements as well. No matter which health and wellness issues you may be facing, taking the daily trio can support your body as it works to achieve homeostasis (all systems working together and in good order).
Are you thinking, “Wow, that sounds like a lot of fuss and money for a busy, budget-conscious person like me”? Let me assure you that eating well and taking excellent nutritional supplements can become a simple-to-maintain habit, one that will save you many dollars as time goes on. And that’s what I’m here for – to point you to strategies and resources that will fit and enhance YOUR lifestyle.
