Posted on July 15, 2019 by Revitalize Lifestyle

Here are some simple tools to help boost your immunity and reduce and clear congestion, not only during the winter months but great for the whole year.

The quick video includes a range of the following:

  • Shaking technique: 1-2 minutes in the morning
  • Drink warm lemon water, fresh lemon, ginger, turmeric and a shot of Fire Tonic in the morning
  • Gentle facial massage and tapping on the sinuses
  • Emotional side of Sinus and Congestion: Is the sinus infection coming from an emotional space. Sinuses are related to frustration, anger, resentment, irritation, repressing emotions, sorrow, unsure how to solve difficult problems, overanalysing, struggle to stand up for yourself, feeling worn out, pulled in many directions.

    Posted on May 22, 2017 by Revitalize Lifestyle

    Give this shot a go in the morning.

    Organic if possible:

    1/2 Carrot

    2cm fresh ginger

    2cm fresh turmeric (or 1/2 tsp powder or paste)

    1/2 apple (I omit the apple as I am reducing my fructose consumption) Nice either way, just sweeter with apple.

    Juice, or blend on high.

    Swig it down!

    It's a winner all round.

    Turmeric: One of the most powerful natural anti inflammatory around, it boosts brain function, helps with depression, lowers risk of heart issues, used to prevent cancer and so much more

    Ginger: Also a strong anti inflammatory, great for nausea, reduces histamines therefore reduces allergic responses (sinus, hayfever, asthma), great for the digestion and heart.
