Living The Holistic Lifestyle Pt 2
There are so many ways to become a person who embraces the holistic lifestyle. It is important to protect
yourself as much as possible from impulses that are negative electromagnetic and try your best to avoid breathing
air that is recirculated as many newer office buildings do not allow people to open the windows and have nothing
but unhealthy recycled air.

chemical free food as possible and food that is free of pesticides. Organic food is the best choice so you should
shop at farmer's markets whenever you can.
Consume butter sparingly. In fact eat butter and margarine as seldom as possible. Instead reach for unheated
extra virgin olive oil as liberally as possible. When you choose fruit and vegetables that are both local and
in-season attempt to buy them as close to the day that they were first picked as possible. Never buy anything that
has been in the market for a number of days.
Buy the majority of your groceries not at the local grocery store but at a farmer's market and the health food
store. Avoid junk food, fast food, fried and fatty food at all costs and do not drink sugary drinks loaded with
chemicals, artificial sweeteners and sugar such as soda pop. A
void chemical preservatives wherever possible such as mono sodium glutamate (Otherwise known as MSG), nitrates
(which are commonly found in such products as bacon) and any animals that were fed antibiotics or hormones of any
kind. Do not consume a great deal of liquids when you eat meals and in particular this means ice in drinks, other
cold drinks and alcoholic beverages.
Try your best to avoid drinking from Styrofoam cups, as Styrofoam is very bad for the environment and avoid
eating off of plastic plates and using plastic utensils. Do not consume foods that have been prepared with
hydrogenated oil, examples being margarine and any other type of butter or margarine
Today's Holistic Tip for Pain
Pain TreatmentAcupuncture has now been successfully used for centuries in many parts of the world. The aim of acupuncture is to balance qi in the body, which is the energy force, or the vital energy in the body and to release chi (the negative energy) in the body if there is an accumulation of it. Acupuncture looks at the body as a whole as opposed to individual parts and believes that if all parts are in harmony then this will contribute to a healthier person overall. Acupuncture makes use of fine, thin sterilized needles placed into strategic spots on the head and human body to help rid the body of pain and to support the body in the healing process. Not all health conditions can be helped by way of acupuncture and not all types of pain can be helped as well. cancer pain relief
