Do you suffer from Gas & Bloating?
Not only can gas and bloating be uncomfortable and embarrassing but it is also often unsightly. Even the thinnest of people can look 10 pounds heavier when severely bloated. So what causes gas & how do you prevent it?
What Causes Gas?
A certain amount of gas is normal in the intestines as it happens naturally when we digest foods which is why it is important to watch what we eat. Uncomfortable gas and bloating is abnormal though. This type of gas and bloating is a sign of bigger problems like:
Exposure to toxins and chemicals
Antibiotic use etc.
The primary culpret though is harmful bacterias , chemicals, & parasites living or trapped in the colon wall and producing smelly or severe gas and bloating.
How to Prevent Gas & Bloating?
Cleanse your Colon:
Since the harmful bacterias and chemicals are what continue to cause the problem you must first remove them thoroughly from the colon wall if you want to see immediate or long term results. A colonic is the most effective way to cleanse your colon and is something you can do today. Not to mention it also helps heal your digestion, hydrate the body and the average person can lose anywhere from 5-15 pounds Just check out the photos of these women after a colonic cleansing. Schedule one today!
Clean up you diet:
Chemically Processed foods, white flour, & white sugar all feed dangerous bacterias that live in your colon so stay away from those type of foods. Try eating more natural foods like organic fruits and veggies and whole grains.
Drinking water helps to naturally clean the bowel wall of any chemicals or toxins. You should be drinking an average of half your body weight in ounces to be accurately hydrating.
Reintroducing healthy good bacteria into the Colon is a great way to start reducing gas and bloating. Taking a digestive probiotic supplement daily just make sure it is enteric coated for best results.
Are You Storing Hidden Inflammation in your Body?
If you are suffering from inflammation finding a way to reduce that inflammation is crucial because nearly EVERY modern disease is either caused or affected by inflammation in your body. If your body is storing that inflammation in your Lymphatic Stream as opposed to dissolving it on your own you are headed toward illness, disease, & premature aging. Since we know inflammation stores in the lymphatic stream it is most important to find the cause of the inflammation and restore your lymphatic streams natural balance.
There can be many causes for inflammation from:
*Infections and virus’s
*Bacterias like yeast or candida
*Pain or physical trauma
*Emotional, Physical, or Mental Stresses
*Food or Environmental Allergies
*Lack of exercise and Stagnant lifestyle
*Toxins such as liver/gallbladder bile, pesticides/ herbicides, Mercury, & Pollution
Knowing these root causes of inflammation allows us to minimize our intake or contact with these triggers.
But what do we do with the damage that has already been done to our lymphatic stream and how do we quickly reverse the problem?
Most importantly we must cleanse and purifiy the Lymph Stream from the inside out.
Revolutionary Equipment like Electro-Lymphatic Drainage allows us to send Electro Magnetic Impulses up to 2 1/2 Inches into the Lymphatic stream to break up any congestion and inflammation the body is storing. Not only does it break up the inflammation to allow your body to dissolve it but it physically drains the inflammation out of your body all together. Imagine? Years of built up inflammation draining from your body from just a massage-like treatment?
Electro-Lymphatic Drainage has been known to help not only with inflammation but many other issues that may seem completely unrelated like:
*Illness, disease, virus’s, infection
*Swelling & Water Retention
*Pain and joint discomfort
*Auto- Immune Diseases
*Arthritus & Osteoperosis
Among many others!

Simple Green Smoothie
Juicing in the morning does not have to be difficult or complicated. Make breakfast easy by making a simple green smoothie to start your day. Green Smoothies are a great way to get vital nutrients, lose weight and cleanse your body. All you need is the right tools and a few simple ingredients to start and it will make breakfast a whole new experience.
Buy a Blender
With so many blender options on the market a little research will help you find one thats right for you. The Nutri Bullet is simple, quick, easy and under $100. I use this in the morning because it is a time saver. Other great options are the Ninja and of course the VitaMix. Although these blenders are far superior they are larger and clean up takes longer. You can also use whatever you already have in your cupboard no need to spend extra money.
Use Green Ingredients:
Green Foods are the most important staple to the Green Smoothie. Leafy, nutrient dense veggies are the best. I recommend leafy greens like Kale, Spinach, Broccoli Leaf, Dandelion greens, & Chard. You can add 1, 2, or all of these greens to a smoothie but the most important fact is that 2/3rds of your smoothie should be these greens.
Mmm Mmm Fruit:
Fruit is what can change the flavor of your smoothie and make it delicious particularly for someone new to Green Smoothies. Although fruit shouldn't be more then 1/3rd of the entire smoothie content there are some fruits that can really adjust the taste and make it sweet. If you prefer a sweeter smoothie I recommend Pineapple, Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Papaya, Blueberries, Strawberries and even Avocado.
Add a boost:
Fruits and veggies should be your primary source of nutrition in your smoothie but you can add supplements to your smoothie to make it a complete meal and whole food source. I add Supplements like Fiber, Vegan Protein, Chlorophyll, Coconut Oil, and so much more.
Simple Green Smoothie Recipe:
4 Small Kale Leaves
8-10 Dandelion Green Leaves
2 Large Broccoli Leafs
2 Cubes Watermelon
2 Cubes Papaya
Small Handful of Blueberries
1 Tsp of Ground Chia and Flax
1 Scoop Warrior Blend Vegan Protein
10 Drops Liquid Chlorophyll
Coconut Water and water
Blend and Enjoy!
At Living Water Wellness we believe the MOST effective way to maintain a healthy Lymphatic System is to begin by doing a Package of Electro Lymphatic Drainage Treatments for thorough cleansing first then receive monthly Treatments for maintenance thereafter. Although there are plenty of ways to maintain at how which we would love to share with you!
Lymph Building Tips:
*Exercise! Bouncing on a mini-trampoline, also called a rebounder, is the ideal lymphatic exercise. One of the highest quality rebounders available is the Needak Softbounce Rebounder, which folds in half for easy transport.
*Breathe deeply. Proper breathing begins with the diaphragm. Go outside, and breathe slowly and deeply in through your nose until your lungs are completely full of air, then slowly exhale. Work up to 20 or more “connected breaths,” and do your best to remain conscious of your breathing throughout your day.
*Buy a natural skin brush and do “dry brushing” each morning to stimulate your circulation. Also Exfoliating with used coffee grounds helps reduce cellulite and improves cirulation.
*Drink plenty of pure water daily—half your body weight in ounces per day, or a minimum of 8 cups per day.
*Eliminate dairy, fried foods, sodas, coffee, refined sugar/salt/flour from your diet. In lieu of pastries and a latte, choose whole grain toast and herbal tea.
*Eat less protein and way more veggies! A 2,000 calorie daily diet should contain no more than 22-40 grams of protein but a minimum of 2/3rds of your diet should be fruits and veggies!
