Our body is a lot like a house. We need a strong foundation and frame to support all that we must go through on a daily basis. We must keep it clean on the inside as much as on the outside and as the body gets older it needs a little more maintenance care then it may have required in the beginning.
Do you take care of your home better than your body?
Would you take kindling and start a fire in the middle of your living room? No, of course not! How often do we light up some fires in our bodies with what we eat and put on our bodies?
Making good choices is not always EASY, but most of us know the difference between a healthy choice and a fire. In a house we can see the fire, smell the fire and hear the fire alarm blaring. My question for you today is are you feeling the fire and listening to the fire alarm within your body or are you ignoring it?
I would like to share some tools (Young Living Products) that can help you Build a Healthy Body.
Let’s start with the Foundation: Nourishment
Who likes EASY?
I believe that NingXia Red is one of the easiest ways we can nourish our bodies on a daily basis. My family orders the NingXia Red Essential Rewards Kit each month for $181.50. This gives us 221.4 oz of liquid health per month to build our healthy foundation. This breaks down to 82 cents per ounce. This is me investing $45 a person per month on each of our foundations. I take this money from our grocery budget, because it is REAL FOOD.
Like most families we are busy and always on the go. We stay active with exercise and playing sports and dancing and martial arts. It would be EASY to stop and get a snack or a fast meal. My family chooses EASY in a smoothie form. It literally takes me less time to make a smoothie and clean it up then it would take to wait in a line for FAST Food. We all love the NEW PURE PROTEIN COMPLETE (in Chocolate and Vanilla Spice).
We buy 1-2 Protein Mixes per month. At $65 that is around $3.61 for 25 grams of protein.
Do you know how much protein you need to build up a healthy body?
Each person needs about 0.37 grams of protein per pound of body weight. I need to feed my family about 188.70 grams of protein per day. That is 5,661 grams of protein per month. That is a lot of protein! Most of us are not eating the amount of protein we need to build healthy bodies and we see it everyday. When you compare the cost of good grass-fed beef, organic chicken and eggs, having another source like Pure Protein Complete is cost effective and EASY.

This smoothie brings back memories of the Ice Cream Truck and the Orange Push-Up Pops.This one is just as delicious, but GOOD for you too!
What about Cleaning Inside our Body?
That’s right you have your own personal housekeeper right inside you body. How have you been treating her?
Even the housekeeper needs to stay healthy and one way we can support our liver is with Lemon Essential Oil in our water every morning.
This is a great way to also give your water a little flavor (all natural) so that you are sure to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces each day.
Did You Know That Cleaning Your Home is Dangerous to your Health?
I know we are all jumping for joy! Now we don’t have to clean. I wish that was the case. Your home still needs some cleaning, but we don’t have to use all the chemicals that the commercials want you to believe you need.
The Laundry Room is considered one of the most toxic rooms in the house. That’s right that clean smell- well it’s not so clean after all! Just a bunch of TOXIC chemicals. Want to learn more about what is in your laundry soap check out this article: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/12/21/are-you-slowly-killing-your-family-with-hidden-dioxane-in-your-laundry-detergent.aspx
