Hydration

The general rule on how much water you should be drinking in a day for healthy tissue healing processes and for supporting weight loss is to consume about half your body weight in ounces of water per day.

Food, Nutrition & Diet

We recommend a healthy, anti-inflammatory diet that is high in protein and vegetables and low in sugars, including no artificial or added sugars in foods, to allow for the best healing environment for your body. Also stay away from processed foods and stick to single ingredient foods as much as possible. Read food labels. A good place to start is the WHOLE 30 diet (www.whole30.com) or a Paleo diet.

Sleep Hygiene

Sleep is so important for the healing of our bodies and our minds. With ongoing poor sleep, our brains don’t have the chance to do their overnight “clean-up” work (done by the Glymphatic system), and we end up with brain inflammation.
