Water   Hydration is essential. Drink lots and lots of water – a good rule of thumb is drink half your body weight in water. So lets say you weigh 140 pounds you would drink 70 ounces in water, soda, coffee, and juice doesn’t count. Remember this during winter people tend to drink more hot drinks that dehydrate the body.

Oxygen   Cells need oxygen to produce energy. If you don’t have time to workout take 7 minutes to do some deep breathing.

Minerals   The body uses vitamins and minerals to perform many different functions – from building strong bones to transmitting nerve impulses and fight infections – your body needs vitamin C, calcium, potassium, magnesium, just to name a few.

Alkalinity   Eating high-alkaline foods help maintain the acid/base balance of your system. An ideal diet should consist of dark green and yellow vegetables, soybeans, sprouted grains and nuts, and essential fatty acids. Coffee, Hot Chocolate, and alcohol increase acid in your body which affects how you function.

Nutrients   There are seven groups of nutrients which your body needs to stay healthy – Protein, Carbohydrates, Fats, Vitamins, Minerals, Roughage (Dietary Fiber), and Fluid (water).

Simply put,  to maintain the cycle of balance within your body, everyone needs a good W.O.M.A.N.
