Quality of life defined by medicinetnet.com is the patient's ability to enjoy normal life activities. One of the major struggles for us is living in discomfort and not knowing it. Our foods, every day body care (soaps, lotions, perfumes/colognes, makeup, hair gels, etc.), water, alcohol, smoking, stress, sitting too much, cooking ingredients, and environmental toxins all impact our quality of life.
Go Organic, Grass fed, and Non-GMO. Remove the toxins from your food. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and nicotine, along with preservatives and added sugar. Grass-fed is either you feed the animals grass or you don’t. Organic, involves record keeping, proving that your land has not been exposed to artificial chemicals for at least 3 years, and that everything comes from a certified organic source. Farmers have to pay a USDA official to review their farm yearly. Non-GMO means that your food is not genetically modified. GMOs (genetically modified organisms), is process where a lab creates and grows food by modification/engineering techniques. Foods are not grown naturally. There are many health and environmental risks with foods containing GMOs.
Use this list to find Organic Brands that are sold in your local food stores (http://www.organickitchen.com/food/food.html).
Look for these labels on your food and beverage packaging when shopping:
Look for the sticker number that begins with “9” on Fruits and Vegetables which indicates organic.
Change the water you drink. Drink plenty of pure water. Drinking reverse osmosis, spring or alkaline water rids your body of waste and helps to balance your body's pH. Be sure to introduce mineral drops into your filtered water to add back important vitamins that are filtered out (e.g. magnesium). When your pH level is not correct you can have a lack of energy, excessive mucus, congestion, frequent illness, nervousness, headaches, irritability and weight gain.
Step 3:Step up your Vegetables and fruits.
Take a daily multiple vitamin with A, B, C, D, E, K, calcium, iron, fish oil, and zinc. You can find natural sources of vitamins, but many of us do not eat enough fruits and vegetables to receive the daily recommended dose.

Sweat! However you like to do it, just find 30 minutes a day to do it. Visit your local spa’s sauna, work out indoors or outdoors, or take a hot Epson salt bath. Working out and/or taking a hot bath reduces stress levels as well.
Adopt this new life style (Steps 1 – 5). This is not a diet. You can still eat your BBQ, chicken, steaks, turkey, mashed potatoes, and macaroni. You only have to choose Organic, Grass fed, and Non-GMO ingredients. Also, ensure that the ingredients that you use do not have added sugar.
