Happy Monday. Happy M A R C H! We are two months into 2021 and I thought it would be a good time to share what I’ve been doing to stay healthy during this pandemic. I’m excited to share a few products and tips that have aided in my wellness journey. What are you doing to stay healthy?
Is it weird that this time last year all still seemed normal? In fact, Pete and I were about to head to Cayo Espanto, Belize not knowing that when we returned a pandemic and lock down were in our future. Navigating this last year has not been easy. We have of course been following all of the CDC guidelines to stay healthy while trying to maintain some sort of normalcy in our lives. Neither one of us got Covid-19. Pete is now fully vaccinated and I received my first dose last week. Praise Be!
Here are a few things that I highly recommend doing whether trying to stay healthy during a pandemic year or just trying to work on your wellness in general. Please note that I am not a doctor and I am simply sharing what has worked for me.
NutriSuits Losers’ Chews for gut health
As many of you know, I do the Metabolic Body Program at Formula Wellness (click HERE for details). One of the things Dr. Rudman really emphasizes is gut health. I wasn’t taking a pre or probiotic. I started taking NutriSuits Losers’ Chews, a combined prebiotic-probiotic supplement with essential vitamin D3. It’s keto friendly because it doesn’t have added sugar. The added benefit is that it’s an appetite suppressant. My stomach is never upset. I take 2 chewables every morning. They taste like Flintstones vitamins. Who remembers that Dino was the purple vitamin (grape flavor). YUM! Use code TANYACHEWS for 20% off a first-time purchase. It’s limited to one use per customer. Click HERE to order and stock up!
Every morning I add Ultima Replenisher to one 16 oz. bottle of water. It’s Keto friendly without any added sugars. Chrissy, the nutritionist at Formula Wellness suggested that I do this once daily to make sure and replenish my electrolytes. Ultima Replenisher is for rehydrating and replacing electrolytes lost during activity and preventing muscle cramps and headaches from travel and hangovers. Contains magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium chloride, zinc, sodium molybdate, manganese, selenium amino acid chelate, copper, chromium), citric acid, rebaudioside A (organic stevia leaf extract).
Vitamins and Supplements
In addition to the above, I still take 2 Ritual Essential for Women 50+ vitamins daily. You can still get 10% off your first 3 months with code TANYA. It’s a great multi vitamin! Click HERE to order. During the pandemic, I added a daily Zinc, Vitamin C and Vitamin D to up those for staying healthy. I just order these from Walmart and they are not brand specific. Once I started the Metabolic Body Program at Formula Wellness, I added those vitamins via a weekly shot. I also take 500 mg of magnesium at night along with my CBD gummies from The Trusted Lab. This aids in a good nights sleep! Additionally, I think its hugely important to get a solid 8 hours of sleep! Take a bath and use Dead Sea Soak. It works wonders!
I’ve just started taking Skinade as my collagen supplement. It’s a daily drink that tastes like mango. This helps with skin, hair and nails. You can get it at Formula Wellness.
Sweat it out!
I’ve been doing infrared therapy at CYL (Change Your Life) and its amazing! Throughout the course of our daily lives, our bodies absorb toxic compounds through ingestion, our skin and the air we breathe. Even if you try and do all the right things: exercising routinely, eating organic foods, drinking plenty of water, getting quality sleep, etc., keeping our bodies free from toxins is a struggle. Infrared saunas are the superheroes in the detoxification effort!
I also loved the Hocatt at The Ozone Bar. The HOCATT sauna is the only sauna that utilizes Transdermal Ozone, CO2/ Carbonic Acid, Far Infrared, Pure Oxygen, Red Light/Color Therapy, and Microcurrents to give the most collective response for better results! There are currently only two of these machines in Dallas, Texas. They also offer regular Ozone sauna treatments and Dermashape, which I’m dying to try.
Eating healthy | Keto
Keto continues to be the best way for me to eat, maintain my weight and feel better. Less carbs means less bloating! Eat to Evolve are chef prepared meals that you order by Friday at 10 AM and they are shipped to you on a refrigerated truck. I receive mine by Tuesday. Since the food is already cooked, I simply pop mine in the microwave. I order the Keto meals so I know my macros are correct. Click HERE for details. You can get 15% off your first order with code TANYA15.
Most recently, I started taking an ACV + fresh squeezed lemon juice shot first thing in the morning before I take anything else. It’s also supposed to help with gut health, digestion reduced appetite and more. I use Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar and a fresh squeezed lemon. It’s literally the size of a shot glass. The mixture is about half and half. And no, it does not taste good. I’ll keep you posted…
Other than the obvious annual doctor visits and check-ups, getting out and getting some daily exercise and fresh air (even if its just walking the dogs – move your body!) and drinking lots of water, we’ve managed to never get sick during the pandemic. In fact, I’m rarely under the weather.
I hope this helps. What have you done to stay healthy?
xoxo – Tanya
