get off your acid

it’s no secret most of our diet consists of highly acidic food/drink. 90% of the american diet is purely acidic: filled with processed food, caffeine, alcohol, refined sugars, etc. when your diet is too acidic, your body isn’t able to repair or detoxify itself, making you sick & prone to a host of other problems.

a day off with Ry

there’s nothing more precious or valuable than your time. when it comes to my days-off, there’s nothing i love more than a little self-pampering. i can’t stress enough the importance of taking time out to focus on yourself physically, mentally and spiritually. after all, you’re your own biggest investment, so don’t cut corners! invest in your wellbeing and your body and mind will thank you.

why we take magnesium

as highly anxious individuals, we’ve found magnesium to be the best natural cure for getting prime r&r. taking magnesium supplements before bed helps reduce cortisol levels, AKA the “stress hormone” that keeps your mind racing at night. it also helps relax your muscles, giving you those xanax feels…

since most people are deficient of this nutrient, it’s usually the common denominator for a number of ailments including including poor digestion, cramps, insomnia, high blood pressure, and hypertension to name a few. another major benefit is it helps with constipation by relaxing your bowels and pulling water into the intestines. taking a high potency magnesium (or 2 if you’re really backed up), will definitely help get things moving by morning. don’t go to bed or travel without #trust.

knowing your bod’s pH

maintaining an alkaline diet is not a new concept. from gweneth to VB, nutrition-minded celebs can’t stop talking about the benefits of being pH-conscious.

it’s no secret that an acidic diet can wreck havoc on your health. consuming soft drinks, alcohol, processed foods, refined sugars and red meat are some of the leading contributors to becoming unbalanced. when your bod is too acidic, it isn’t able to repair or detoxify itself, causing you to be more prone to illness and disease, premature aging, weight gain, and acne to name a few.

on the flip side, alkaline-rich foods are full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to help ward off illness, acne, wrinkles, etc. making sure you keep your pH balanced by incorporating alkaline foods into your diet is key.

top alkaline foods

lemons- squeeze into your water or salad to keep incorporated on a daily basis
avocados- no brainer
bananas
dates
garlic
carrots
