13 Nutrients for Healthier Hair, Skin & Nails . . . and even improved circulation!

Good looks, good health?

It’s often said that our hair, skin, and nails are external tell-tale signs of how healthy we are (or not!). The first obvious signs of nutrition deficiency are of course external – so unhealthy hair, skin and nails indicate that your body needs a nutritional boost!

Good health often is reflected in an attractive, youthful appearance. So you might be tempted to blame ageing and stress for facial lines, unsightly fingernails, or hair loss.

In fact, these flaws can signal underlying health issues, says integrative medicine specialist Molly M. Roberts, MD, of the Institute for Health & Healing, in San Francisco, and president of the American Holistic Medical Association.

“Your Body will start by whispering, then it’ll start talking, and, if you don’t pay attention, it’ll start yelling and shouting, and then you’ve got an illness,” Molly M. Roberts, MD

In the modern world, our diet is often deficient in optimal levels of essential nutrients and in addition, includes foods that inflame our cells and cause a breakdown and even end up tearing apart the collagen, keratin, and elastin that provide supple skin, strong and silky hair and strong, fast-growing nails.

Toxic overload, stress, poor diet and nutritional deficiencies all contribute to lack-lustre skin, dry and brittle hair, and brittle nails that never seem to grow.

One of the neatest things about eating a healthy diet and supplementing with the right nutrients – is your nails, hair, and skin are often the first things to change for the better!

We encourage you to download the free The Eat Savvy Diet, as following this will help you to decrease toxins and increase the important nutrients and essential fatty acids for better hair, skin, and nails.

Eating a nutrient-rich diet is important, however you ‘fast-track’ your road to looking great and feeling healthier by increasing your supplementation of specific youth-boosting nutrients.

Here are 13 Nutrients for Healthier Hair, Skin & Nails . . .

7 Steps for a Healthier Heart!

 

One Australian dies every 12 minutes from it.

It’s the most costly disease for our healthcare system costing $1.8 Billion for medications alone in 2012. It’s the leading cause of death . . . and yet it’s largely preventable!

It’s Cardiovascular Disease!

Recently I was invited to speak to a group about the topic of ‘Heart Health’ and Cardiovascular Disease. It’s certainly a topic that I’ve had a keen interest in understanding, since I’ve had family members succumb to the effects of poor cardiovascular health.

Cardiovascular Disease is the leading cause of death in Australia, (plus most developed countries) and in addition it is a major cause of disability. According to the National Heart Foundation, CVD is responsible for 11% of direct healthcare expenditure with the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme paying out $1.8 Billion in medications for CVD in 2012 (21% of total benefits that year).

So it’s a very costly disease for the healthcare system and a deadly one at that.

So what can you actively do to stack the odds in your favour?

Well, here are 7 Steps to get you started . . .

VIDEO: Wellness – It’s NOT That Hard!

Wellness – It’s NOT That Hard!

Most people when asked what they think ‘health and wellness’ is – would tend to say that it is ‘the absence of disease and disability’. The ‘treatment paradigm’ that is our medical system, assumes a somewhat mechanical view of illness and the body it occurs in. It also assumes that something has to have ‘gone wrong’ before anything can be acted upon.

Illness is thus seen simply as a ‘fault in the machine’, and the machine-body continues to be regarded as something that functions autonomously. The medical model is enticing because it is generally succinct, tangible, easily understandable and in accordance with a scientific method which relies primarily on objective and measurable observation.

What is ‘Wellness’?

The wellness model moves beyond that traditional notion of health and wellness as being the mere absence of disease . . .  and relates more to the optional functioning of each person regardless of current health status or disability. Wellness is much more than merely physical health, exercise or diet. It is the full integration of states of physical, nutritional, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Wellness as a state of being, exists on a continuum and is unique to each individual person.

Each of us defines our own wellness, however living in optimal health is most peoples aim.

The Savvy Team’s ‘Wellness – It’s NOT That Hard’ philosophy, is about sharing a wellness model with those ready to begin their personal journey. Our model (along with our collection of programs and action-plans) provide a path to follow that offers extraordinary success in reaching a higher level of wellness – for those who choose the path.
