Taking the OHI Program Home, Part 1 of 2
We are so grateful when you can visit us in San Diego or Austin so we can share the Optimum Health Institute detoxifying and maintenance plan for a healthier, happier life. But when busy schedules keep you from being with us, let us be with you with these practical tips to bring the knowledge home.
OHI Facilitators offer the following powerful suggestions:
Juicing: Try a juice fast once per week on your easiest day of the week. This doesn’t have to be in the order of breakfast, lunch and dinner. It could be juicing for dinner, then breakfast and lunch the following day, and then break your juice fast at dinner. Juicing is an easy way to get a lot of nutrition while you’re giving your digestive tract a rest. On juice days, throw some sprouts in the juice to increase the protein content, enzymes, and fiber.
Breath work: Deep diaphragmatic breathing (belly breathing) reduces stress and increases health by allowing the cells to be nourished by more oxygen, and more oxygen is able to get to the lower portion of the lungs. Practice diaphragmatic breathing during meditation, while practicing alpha, during stretching exercises, or just sitting in a chair until it becomes instinctual to your body. Babies naturally breathe this way, with their bellies falling on the inhale and rising on the exhale. Deep breaths also slow the mental pace down and help us focus better.
SOUL: Eat more S.O.U.L. Food. Seasonal, Organic, Unprocessed, and Locally grown food have more nutritional value. We want to eat food that is fresher, uncontaminated by pesticides and harmful chemicals, grown without genetically modified organisms, and grown locally to reduce any sprays across state lines, and shorten the amount of time the food spends in transport. Each day on a truck means fewer nutrients in each piece of produce.
Smoothies: For a quick meal that packs a high energy punch, whip up a green smoothie. Just put chunks of cucumber, celery and spinach in your blender with a cup of water, and add raw garlic or onion and dulce to taste. Mix in other vegetables depending on what phase of the OHI plan you’re following.
