NEW SERIES: Spartan HEALTH with Dr. Nada Milosavljevic every Sunday
Your five senses are your body’s most direct connection to the outside world. They take in information 24/7 whether you know it or not. Harnessing any one of your senses can be a powerful way to stimulate the brain to achieve optimal results.
WHAT WE COVER:
Three words: Citrus, citrus, citrus. The citrus family includes, grapefruit, orange, lemon and lime and they are central nervous system (CNS) stimulants. They upregulate, activate and energize your brain!
The two I’m focusing on today are grapefruit and lime.
First up, Grapefruit: While it has grown in the West Indies since at least the 18th century, it wasn’t widely known in the US until the 20th century. Today, there are at least 10 different varieties of grapefruit. Its essence or oil is prepared from its flowers and its powerfully fresh aroma can energize your senses!
The other EO I’d like to tell you about is Lime: If you only use it in the kitchen to add some tanginess to your tacos or flavor a margarita, you are really missing out! Lime has important health and energy-boosting properties and can be combined with grapefruit for a wonderful 1 to punch to stimulate your mind and give your work out a boost!
How to use them? You can use a towelette, wipe, tissue, gauze add a few drops of the energizing oils and inhale for 1-2 minutes. Repeat as needed and amp up your workout routine…naturally!
