There are so many ways in which LIFE seems to get in the way of your optimal
HEALTH. If you think about it, what can be more important than your
health? It’s what allows us to love, laugh, work, nurture, play and truly enjoy the miracle of just being alive.
And so often the things that are bandied about as ‘
healthy’ are just so boring, or confusing.
We all want the good things in life, so CZAVite is here to help you do it your way, a way that suits you and creates daily happiness. Don’t let life ‘happen’ to you – SEIZE THE DAY and make it yours, the fun and
Feeling Fantastic – Quick (FREE!) Fixes
We all have times during our day when someone ‘stupid’ has just made you feel really mad, bad or sad. Or your energy has just deserted your body without so much as a sick note, or you might just feel a little down and put upon. Try these quick‐fixes, they work.
Real breathing? I hear you scoff, if I was doing fake breathing I wouldn’t be here, duh. Yes, breathing is the vital life force that wings oxygen to the blood and brain and gets rid of toxins as we breathe out carbon dioxide. But most of us practice short, shallow chest breathing. While this will keep you alive, it won’t let you harness the full power and energy of ‘real breathing’.
A couple of times a day concentrate on taking in five big, real breaths and see how you feel. Breathe in through your nose all the way down into your stomach, feel it extending your stomach. Breathe out again through your nose or mouth and feel your stomach deflate. Practice often, whenever you remember to, and transform your fear into energy.
|Many of us generally have a fearful or hunched posture, which keeps our energy down and our bodies out of alignment.
Correct your posture immediately by imagining a string that goes out at the top of your head and is attached to the ceiling, pulling you upward. Do it now.
Can you feel an immediate difference? Your spine lengthens and your body seems to ‘fall’ into the right, aligned place. Being in alignment really brightens your mood, so check your posture as often as possible throughout the day, and feel the positive effects.
|Get those feet onto the Earth|
|Spending some time in nature is really restorative and rejuvenating. Nature gives you peace, relaxation and a feeling of oneness that is so easy to forget about completely in our hectic, indoor lives. Getting the benefits of a bit of time in nature needn’t mean hiking in the mountains for a week, although it’s a damn good idea. For now, just book your hike, and then spend your lunchbreak sitting on the grass under a tree.|
|Take off your shoes and let your feet touch the earth at least once a day. Just five minutes of connection with the earth will have a re‐energising effect.
OK, now that you are strolling around barefoot in the park with your arrow‐straight back in perfect alignment and breathing all the way down to your stomach with deep, energising breaths, time to focus on a few other
healthtips and tricks……
|Dem Bones, dem poor old bones….|
|Yup, the skeletal system that holds us up and gives us some structure.|
|Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bones to become brittle and fragile. It can happen to anyone but most commonly affects the elderly and postmenopausal women, but men and women of all ages are at risk and even certain lifestyle choices can increase the risk.|
Calcium ‐ Throughout your lifetime calcium is deposited and withdrawn from bones depending on the body’s needs. When the dietary calcium intake is too low, the body will withdraw the calcium it needs from the bones. Over time, if more calcium is taken out of the bones than put in, osteoporosis can develop.
Homocysteine is a toxic, non‐protein amino acid produced naturally by the body when it digests protein, most specifically red meat. Elevated levels may lead to a host of nasty
healthproblems, ranging from cardiovascular disease to the development of Alzheimer's disease, cancer, depression, aggressiveness and memory impairment.
Elevated Homocysteine levels can be caused by genetics, age, diet and
vitamindeficiencies, too much animal protein, lack of exercise, smoking, alcohol and coffee. Yup, it’s the lifestyle thing again!
Homocysteine levels can be reduced safely and maintained effectively at normal levels simply by using the correct combination of nutrients,
vitaminsand minerals, specifically B‐complex
Vitamin B 6and
Vitamin B 12) and the nutrient Betaine.

|Another Party‐Pooper – Cholesterol|
Cholesterol is a soft, fat‐like, waxy substance that is found in your bloodstream, in all your body's cells and in many of the foods that you eat. Cholesterol actually plays some vitally important roles in the body, including the formation and maintenance of cell membranes and the production of some important hormones.
But too much cholesterol causes a build up in the body that can lead to serious cardiovascular problems. Too much LDL cholesterol can clog the arteries (known as atherosclerosis – the build up of plaques that can narrow or block blood vessels). If the coronary arteries of the heart become blocked, a heart attack can occur
