Following Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines, I show you how to make a disinfectant spray using hydrogen peroxide.

peroxide. **Hydrogen must stay in a dark bottle to be effective. So make this in small batches.

I wanted to share 6 areas that I think are key to focus on to make you feel healthier.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Shockingly, it’s estimated that 3 out of 4 Americans are walking around chronically dehydrated. This is bad, bad news considering that water makes up 60 – 70% of your body and affects every corner of health and well-being—including metabolism, detoxification, digestion, inflammation, appearance, and cognitive function to name a few. The solution? Drink at least 8 – 12 eight-ounce glasses of water per day.
Fill nutritional gaps with a multivitamin. Like we’ve talked about before, a high-quality multivitamin is like a nutrition insurance policy to make sure that you’re getting all the valuable micronutrients you need on a daily basis. After all, experts agree that there is a nutritional gap between today’s diet and what’s required for optimal health, and researchers concur that everyone should be taking a daily multivitamin because it offers safe, simple micronutrient insurance.
Stock your kitchen with all the best tools. This isn’t as sexy as other fat-burning and metabolism-boosting tips, but if you truly want to eat healthy consistently, you need to make sure you have all the tools you’ll need to prepare meals at home. For cutting boards, choose wood over plastic. For pots, pans, and other storage containers, using glass, ceramic, and stainless steel are the best options with the least toxicants. Other essentials include a pressure cooker and/or slow cooker, blender, and good knives—although we could make a case for about a dozen other kitchen gadgets.
Choose a workout routine and find an accountability partner. Surely you’ve heard the saying if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Well, that holds true for your fitness regimen as well. Make sure you have a progressive exercise program that’s appropriate for your fitness level and experience and conducive to your goals. Also, find an accountability partner—a trainer, friend, spouse, or fellow gym goer—to help keep you on track and to help push yourself.
Know your temptations and alternatives to satisfy them. Despite the best-laid plans and good intentions, temptations will strike. Identify any triggers that you can—time of day, emotions, stress, people, places, etc.—and prepare contingency plans. One of the biggest keys to overcoming temptation is mindfulness. Don’t rely on will power alone. Come up with solutions. Have healthy snacks handy. Practice meditation and deep breathing. Work on distraction techniques (call a friend, write a thank you note, read a book, take a walk).
Commit to a consistent self-care routine. No matter what you do, make time and space for yourself and a self-care routine. It’s not selfish. Investing in yourself means you can serve others more effectively and genuinely. There’s no one-size-fits-all self-care routine. Consider a gratitude journal, meditation, yoga, booking a message, taking a walk, sitting in the sauna, or sunbathing. Whatever floats your boat and fills up your tank is what’s best!

Recently, the keto diet has become extremely popular for its health benefits such as weight loss and preventing disease. The keto diet can be hugely beneficial, but how does it work to provide these benefits?
What is the Keto Diet?
You may have heard of the high-protein, low-carbohydrate Atkins diet. The keto diet keeps carbohydrate levels low, but instead of ramping up the amount of protein in your diet, the keto diet increases the amount of fat. A typical keto diet aims for meals with 75% fat, 20% protein, and 5% carbohydrate. Eating a high-fat diet can still mean eating healthy. Keto diet menu items often include seafood, meat, dairy products, eggs, vegetables, and nuts. With the increased popularity of the keto diet, keto recipes are widely available.
How Does the Keto Diet Work?
It might seem counterintuitive that adding more fat to your diet can lead to weight loss. Normally, your diet is high in carbohydrates, which are broken down into glucose, or blood sugar, for use as energy. As glucose enters your bloodstream, your body releases insulin to store excess glucose as fat. The more carbohydrates, the more glucose. The more glucose, the more insulin, and the more insulin, the more fat.
The keto diet takes advantage of the fact that when your meals are high-fat and low-carbohydrate, there is no insulin spike, and you don’t add to your fat reserves. Instead, fat from diet and stored fat are broken down to ketones («keto» is short for «ketogenic» producing ketones). Like glucose, ketones can be used for energy, keeping your body running without increasing blood sugar or putting on excess fat. The benefits of the keto diet can be huge.
Overall, the keto diet is an excellent way to burn fat and lose weight. Eating fewer carbohydrates suppresses appetite, and studies have shown that keto diet participants eat fewer calories overall because of this. Burning fat for energy can lead to rapid weight loss.
Reduced Blood Sugar and Insulin
Since carbohydrate intake is limited, blood sugar and insulin levels are lowered. This is particularly important for people with type 2 diabetes, which causes a buildup of glucose in the bloodstream. The keto diet can be used to reduce or eliminate the need for diabetic insulin injections.
Fat subunit molecules called triglycerides normally circulate in your bloodstream. High levels of triglycerides are a significant risk factor in the development of heart disease. In the keto diet, because fat is being burned for energy, the number of triglyceride molecules in the bloodstream decreases, reducing the risk of heart disease.
«Bad» (LDL) cholesterol is another risk factor for heart disease. Too much bad cholesterol in your bloodstream builds up in your arteries, narrowing them and causing atherosclerosis, a type of heart disease. The keto diet reduces bad cholesterol levels while increasing the level of «good» (HDL) cholesterol in your body.
The keto diet provides many health benefits. This diet can not only help you quickly lose weight, but can also improve your overall health and help prevent disease.
