HERBALISM and health – 5 STEPS TO MAKE LIFE BETTER. WHY 5 STEPS?
When individuals don’t have the energy to fully enjoy their lives, their work, and their families, something precious has been wasted.
Unicity’s products have been designed to work with the body’s natural anti-ageing and health-restoration processes. From extensive research and recent studies on health, wellness, fitness and nutrition. We have determined what we believe are the five most important actions you can take to gain optimal health. The following five-step philosophy demonstrates how Unicity’s products work with the body to support healthy, natural living.
Dehydration is subtle, so subtle that most people are unaware of their need for water. Statistically, more than 90 per cent of us are dehydrated; we are not getting the amount of water our bodies need to operate at optimal capacity. Water is the most important nutrient that our bodies need to properly function and plays a critical role in the natural metabolic, digestive. When our bodies become dehydrated, our organs suffer, resulting in the prevalence of many degenerative diseases. All major systems of the body depend on the water!
Recommendation: Drink at least 1,5 – 2 L of water each day. Make an intentional effort daily to drink more water and less soda, coffee, and other non-beneficial beverages.
Anyone, even someone not used to a regular exercise program, can instantly benefit from walking. Walking requires little time and no equipment. In fact, research has shown that brisk walking can be more beneficial and effective to overall health than extended running workouts. Walking is easy on the joints and bones. It also increases stamina and improves mobility, expands heart and cardiovascular functions and promotes proper organ functions.
We recommend determining to walk more each day by parking further away. Also, take the stairs instead of the elevator, and walk in the neighbourhood at night.
Poor digestion is one of our country’s major health problems. Your digestive system is a complex arrangement of organs and intestines and enzymes designed to nourish vital organs and body systems. Your food and drink must be broken down into small molecules of nutrients. A clogged or poorly functioning digestive system prevents the absorption of nutrients and the elimination of toxins which are damaging to the liver, and other vital organs. Cleansing your body of harmful toxins and debris allows it to fully absorb and utilize the nutrients you take in through foods and natural supplements.

Unfortunately, today’s diets consist of more fats, more sugars, more carbohydrates and fewer nutritionally rich foods. This, combined with the fact that we can’t really eat five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables every day, means we are not getting the vital essential vitamins, and phytochemicals so critical to building and maintaining good health. Properly formulated, natural supplements bridge the gap between our bodies’ increasing need for greater nutrition and the decline of nutrition in our food.
Once you have established a foundation of health through hydration, walking, cleansing and nourishing your core, you can expand your focus to include specific areas of concern. We also recommend to go for our most comprehensive food and drink intolerance test.
