In addition to everything previously mentioned, you must:
- Drink two liters of fresh water a day (soft drinks don’t count, nor do bottled juices or drinks, or processed beverages), to keep the blood fluid and clean.
- Exercise: helps circulation and good oxygenation and nutrient distribution.
- Avoid stress: stress does not allow blood to flow correctly. Excessive stress causes veins and arteries to tense up, and makes it harder for blood to return to the upper part of the body.
- Drink herbal teas: burdock, hyssop, nettle, sarsaparilla, lemon, elder, dandelion, and ginger are excellent herbal teas for helping keep blood in excellent conditions. You must always remember not to drink herbal teas during meals because they prevent proper iron absorption. It’s best to drink them one hour after having eaten, and on an empty stomach.
Along with this, keep an enthusiastic, happy, and peaceful emotional state. Try to read things that help you understand anger and sadness so that you can choose an enjoyable life in which you fulfill what you love. You emotional state is one of the key ingredients in good blood health.
