If you care about your health and what you put in your body, then you need to be investing in high-quality, pharmaceutical-grade supplements. With new supplement brands popping up each day and counterfeit supplements being found on Amazon.com or Ebay, it’s hard to know what you can trust.  And cheap, drug store brand supplements are generally a waste of your money.

It’s important to do your research and find a respected, pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplement brand – one that can trace the process of a supplement from the time it was a bulk raw material, to when it is in your hand.

Winter months get all the “self-care” attention! We’re desperately trying to avoid the flu, dieting to lose the extra holiday pounds and focussing on our new year’s exercise resolution. But we can’t forget to focus on ourselves during the summer months as well! Long days in the sun, late nights, dehydration, chlorine and alcohol can all take a major toll on your health and well-being.

Here are a few ways to take EXTRA good care of yourself this summer – and head into fall your best self yet!

Yoga and Meditation For Stress Reduction

Research shows that regular yoga and meditation can significantly reduce stress, anxiety and depression. This can be a simple 5 minutes of quiet focus on the breath or a few sun salutations at home (everyone has time for that!) Or better yet, join a yoga program and commit to a few classes a week. You will certainly benefit from the regular practice, but the benefits of feeling a part of a yoga community are invaluable.

Quality Sleep To Heal 

Seems like an obvious suggestion, but it’s often easier said than done. Long summer days, bright light in the bedroom, and hot temperatures can make quality sleep almost impossible. A warm, scented bath right before bed will leave you feeling cool, refreshed and relaxed. Invest in a sleep mask to block all the light and try your best to maintain your typical sleep schedule, even when your days feel crazy. You might also consider some natural, gentle sleep supplements to help you to sleep soundly throughout the night.

Acupuncture For Balance

While summer is a carefree and happy season, changes in schedules and routines often make us feel out of control and unbalanced. Acupuncture can help balance the meridians and stimulate the body’s healing potential. It will help you feel increased energy, calm, improved mood, fewer aches/pains, and an overall sense of feeling in control.

Float Tank Therapy For Anxiety 

Summer might feel a little overstimulating with long days, screaming kids, hectic travel schedules and stifling heat. Float tank therapy, also known as sensory deprivation therapy, allows you to completely deprive the senses of stimuli and gain access to a state of deep mental and physical tranquility. You’ll float effortlessly in a quiet, warm float tank containing 1000 pounds of dissolved magnesium salts. The benefits include reduced anxiety and pain, improved sleep quality and a heightened sense of awareness.

IV Vitamin Therapy To Restore

Summer sunburns, alcohol, dehydration, outdoor sports and leisure activities can take a physical toll on the body. IV Vitamin Therapy is the best way to quickly recover, rehydrate and restore depleted vitamins. By delivering the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids through direct IV infusion, you receive 100% absorption and immediate benefits. The IV drips are all custom-mixed based on your personal health needs.

Some of the benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy include:

  • Hydration
  • Improved immunity
  • Support weight loss
  • Detoxification
  • Boost physical performance
  • Hangover recovery

Infrared saunas are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention. The moment you step into an infrared sauna, the relaxation begins. This heated, natural wood environment will immediately begin to reduce stress, relax muscles, and melt away tension as it envelops you with penetrating warmth.  Rather than heating the air around you, a 3 wave infrared sauna uses near, mid and far wavelengths to heat the body from the inside-out. This produces a host of health benefits including detoxification, weight loss, pain reduction and improved circulation. Infrared sauna therapy can be the perfect compliment to your current wellness plan.
