HEALTH & WELLNESS
For anyone subject to problems of skin dehydration, overwork or fatigue, after illness, dieting or major stress. A great balancing “tonic”
HEART OF THE FORMULA:
>> Living seawater, rich in minerals, trace elements and marine micro-nutrients that are perfectly bioavailable.
>> “Cell revitalising and rehydrating” action that is complementary to and synergistic with all of THALGO’s food supplements and Vitality skincare products.
A complete spectrum of minerals is necessary to metabolize the amino acids we consume. When critical minerals are in deficient amounts, our bodies fail to optimally metabolize and convert amino acids and enzymes into energy.
L’Oceane is an ideal solution for restoring balance to the body’s internal fluids, thoroughly replenishing electrolytes and rapidly re-hydrating the body.
Our immune system is a dynamic network. Scientists believe that marine plasma may work to upgrade the immune system. The minerals in L’Oceane are similar to that of human blood plasma.
Every cell in the human body gets its good food from its own internal “ocean”, the extra cellular fluid surrounding our cells. In this surrounding fluid there must be a perfect balance of all major and trace elements in order for our cells to effectively communicate with each other, thus boosting our immunity.
L’OCEANE, 100% natural marine plasma, provides the body with all the vital energy of the sea.
10 TIPS FOR BOOSTING IMMUNITY
Start Eating Well: Now more than ever it’s time to start eating well. Eating well is paramount for a healthy immune system. Getting three meals in a day loaded with organic food and lots of veggies and fruit can boost the immune system. Foods like greens, mushrooms (not button), turmeric, ginger, matcha, garlic, marrow-based soups, and citrus can all boost the immune system. Make sure to have between seven and 11 servings of fruits and vegetables that have fiber and are loaded with antioxidants.
Decrease Immune-Depleting Food and Drinks: Junk food, alcohol, and sugar can all deplete immunity. You should also limit caffeine, which can dehydrate you. Instead, try herbal teas like rose hips which is high in vitamin C, chamomile which is relaxing, and lemon verbena. Hot tea will keep your nasal passages open.
Get Plenty of Sleep: Instead of staying plastered to the TV or your phone, take some time to rest. It’s the best medicine, and more is better than less. Turn off electronics at least an hour before bedtime, and no TV in the bedroom—especially the news.
Get Outside: Get outside and take a walk in the fresh air. Being in nature resets our brains and induces a state of calm. We also need vitamin D from the sun as well which boosts our health. Ensure you are in a safe environment.
Breathwork: The following technique was taught to Dr. Elizabeth Trattner by her mentor, Andrew Weil, M.D. It is based on Pranayama, and can calm you down within a minute or two. With your tongue against your teeth at the roof of your mouth, inhale through your nose for four counts. Hold your breath for seven counts. Exhale for eight counts through your mouth, making a “whooshing” sound. Repeat for about a minute, or until you’ve begun feeling calmer.
Eat Good Bugs: Not literally, but it’s time to feed your gut good bacteria. Dr. Trattner likes a multi-strain probiotic supplement with at least eight strains and at least 25 billion units. She suggests taking it first thing in the morning and at bedtime to increase permeability. Foods like kimchee and pickles bring good bacteria to the body as well.
Use a Gratitude Journal: With everyone being scared and everything seeming scary, write down a few reminders why life is good. It can be as simple as someone held the elevator for me. Gratitude helps calms the mind.
Try Essential Oils for Anxiety and Nerves: Trattner’s favorite essential oils are rose, lavender, and vetiver. It’s important not use directly on the skin—make sure to always use a carrier oil. Oils like rosemary help clean the air and were even used hundreds of years ago to purify the air in hospitals.
Work Out: Moving your body has positive immunomodulatory effects. Again, get outside in the fresh air. Yoga can keep you calm and boost immunity. Truly, any movement is a positive one.
Self-Care: Small acts of ritual can help increase the production of oxytocin, a hormone that reduces cortisol, the stress hormone. This can be a bath, skincare, a foot rub, cooking, or really any healthy habit that brings you joy.
Somethings we can’t control—like what is going on in the world—but good self-care, nutrition, and sleep practices optimize our health and immunity.
