What’s in your Water?

If you’ve been following me on social media, you probably see some glamorous stuff (I’m a corporate spokesperson),  some sweaty stuff, (I’m a runner, fitness trainer, and sweater), some health and wellness stuff (I’m passionate about holistically caring for one’s health), and then you see some tubs of murky water and funny bio-electricity tools (I’m a certified LectroChi practitioner). One word to describe my life lately is: versatile! My husband and I joke that we are living the “not-normal” life, and my career has definitely followed along that journey. Despite the variety of my roles, and my activities, there’s one constant: WATER!

Image If I was ever on one of those reality TV shows and asked what one item would describe me, without using any words, I would show a good ol’ water bottle (BPA-free.) Water is a life source, meaning, we can’t live long without it. If we go dehydrated too long, our quality of life suffers—and if we keep letting ourselves get to a dehydrated state, overtime, our health suffers.

I’ve recently become aware that not all water is created equal. Check out: www.kangendemo.com. Ouch! I didn’t realize how acidic our water can get. After being introduced to several different brands of alkaline water, I researched the benefits of a higher pH water and reasons to alkaline your body ASAP! To take it a step further, and to fill my own bottles while I am not traveling and at home, there’s alkaline water filters like Kangen. My friend, Misty introduced me to Kangen water filters and how it can change the way you hydrate, beautify, and even clean your house! All with water! I’ve always known water is important–I just didn’t know how powerful it is!

How acidic are you?

Sure, drinking the right water is a great first step; however, with an increasingly toxic environment, poor food options, and higher stress levels, we need to detox at the cellular level, hence my recommendation for ionic foot spa sessions and laser treatments. If you’re interested in learning more about Kangen water, contact:  Misty Scarbrough, Authorized Product Specialist Enagic USA Inc. at Toll Free 877-734-3858. Or message me and I’ll get you connected.

Water can benefit your stress levels in many ways you may not know. Starting your day off with warm lemon water engages your metabolism and works as a light liver detox. Over time, this practice can lead to clearer skin, less digestive issues, and of course, detoxification. Soaking in an Epsom Salts bath soothes my mind as much as my muscles these days.  I  make my own mix of coconut oil, essential oils and Epsom Salts to add to the jet tub and soak my daily worries away. Ahhhh…

It’s been an interesting week of client sessions, and I can tell there’s some sickness going around town. When someone says, “Ew, that’s gross,” I love reminding them how they are cleaner and beautiful on the inside. Soaking in ionized water with a good book is easily a favorite holistic health remedy of mine. Let’s find a practitioner near you ASAP!

Water can be magical for your body and your overall health, so drink up, soak, steam, sweat, and repeat!  –Lacey Pruett

Why would I spend 40 minutes soaking my feet?

Take a listen to Matthew Buchanan as he explains the whats, whys, and how’s of the Lectro Chi Premier Foot Spa. It also explains why I invested in a unit for my family and why you should too.

If you’ve never heard of or understood cellular detoxification, now’s your chance to take holistic health to another level. This, of course, takes YOU to another level as well. I love it! –Lacey

This is for me, not you…

I just love this!

“This worked for me, so maybe it’ll work for you.”

How many times have you heard that statement from friends, clients, or random folks in the store? I get this a LOT. I understand that it’s partially because I talk to random people and I’m social (my husband will say I ask for it), but the other part is that people really do want to be helpful. I’ve tried various products that have been recommended to me, most of them, really great products. The truth is that what works for one body may not work as well for another’s body. I have a new favorite blog at OneBode and found a few recipes I’ve been collecting to try in my 30-Day Clean Eating effort. I want to put them all in one safe place, thus this blog. Although I’m sharing them, just know this is for me… but maybe you’ll like it, too? 🙂
