Combining Good Nutrition Along With Reflexology
Combining Good Nutrition Along With Reflexology. Although you do not need to be on a special diet to get benefits from reflexology, it is always highly recommended to watch what you put in your body. As many holistic nutritionists would agree, you will find that it is very beneficial to consume as much whole foods as possible.
Keep in mind that processed foods are one of the biggest sources for the toxins we build up in our systems; the very toxins that reflexology strives to rid the body of.
Outside of a whole foods diet, the basics of a good diet always apply. Make sure to drink plenty of water, cut down, or better yet eliminate caffeine, eat a well-balanced diet, exercise and get adequate rest.
Reflexology will help take care of the stress! Research has found that reflexology is not only beneficial as a tool for relaxation and stress relief, but it is also an effective tool for improving circulation; relieving pain, detoxification, recovering from surgery, and as an immune and nervous system stimulator.
In fact, many people with illnesses such as allergies; chronic sinus problems; acid reflux; migraines; PMS; menopause; insomnia; fertility problems and even arthritis have been helped tremendously by reflexology treatments.

Quick Reflexology Fact
Maybe it is time to introduce you to reflexology. Reflexology is the practice of strategically applying pressure to areas of the feet and hands as they correspond with specific body organs. By stimulating nerves on specific areas of the feet and hands, we can stimulate blood flow and eliminate toxin buildup in the corresponding organs and systems of the body.
Arthritis: The enzyme superoxide dismutase is a necessary enzyme that counteracts the enzyme superoxide anion, the root cause of arthritis. However, most people do not produce enough of the good enzyme to counteract the bad. The Goji berry has been shown to dramatically increase the amount of the inflammatory enzyme.
Cancer Prevention & Management: The Goji berry have been shown to inhibit the gene mutation of cancer cells induced by TA98 and TA100.In addition, several studies have shown that cancer patients that were given goji LBPs stayed in remission significantly longer than patients who were given no goji.
Goji berries also showed significant benefits for cardiovascular health and overall blood health, non-insulin dependent diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, high blood pressure, energy production, infertility, obesity, periodontal disease and sexual dysfunction.
One theory that tries to explain how reflexology works claims that the manipulation of nerve endings in the feet can communicate relaxing signals to areas of the body or organs that need relaxing or stimulating and the technique applied is best compared to a touchtone phone handset that can dial specific parts of the nervous system and send the right messages through to them.
Another theory that tries to explain how reflexology works claims that the massage of the sole of the foot releases endorphins which is a natural pain killer and promotes a sense of well being naturally and that it is the extra flow of this hormone that makes us feel better.
The overall health benefits of drinking berry goji juice are phenomenal. There are very few, if any, foods known to man that can make this claim. Reflexology and consuming goji berry juice is one of the best ways to achieve the health you deserve.
