How to protect yourself from the harmful effects of smoke and bad air quality

Avoid the smoke

    • If told to stay inside, do so as much as possible.
    • While inside, keep doors and windows closed.
    • While inside, run the air conditioner and air filters.
    • While inside, do not add to the interior air pollution: no smoking, burning candles, don’t even vacuum, which can stir up air particles.

Venturing outside into the smoke?

    • If you have to be outside, wear a mask. In particular, wear an “N95” mask.

Is it okay to exercise with all of the smoke in the air?

    • Avoid outdoor exercise while the air quality is bad. In the U.S., check the air quality in your area by clicking this link. While the air quality is bad, do low impact exercises indoors.

How to help your body heal from the harm caused by all of the smoke

 

Detox Smoothie

Detoxification Smoothie

 

Detoxification drinks have a powerful effect on the body’s recuperative powers because of their rich, easily absorbed nutrients. Fresh juices contain proteins, carbohydrates, minerals, electrolytes, and healing aromatic oils. But most importantly fresh juice therapy makes available to every cell in our bodies large amounts of enzymes, an integral part of the healing and restorative process.

This detox smoothie could be added to your daily detoxification regime. At a minimum, drink the detox smoothie daily for 2 weeks.

 

Water and Ice to taste and texture

4 oz organic orange juice without sweetener

1oz pomegranate juice

1 handful of broccoli sprouts or 1 stalk broccoli

1 handful of cilantro

2 stalks celery

1 handful of watercress

1/3-1/2 cup of mixed organic berries

A packet of Pure Paleo Cleanse Powder

Optional :  As a meal replacement, you can add 1 serving pea and rice protein powder with 1 tbsp of nut butter to make your smoothie more of a meal.

 

Blend together and drink with gusto

What our
patients
are saying

Always get clarity and understanding…

Dianne has always help me understand the complicated issues of hypothyroidism, understanding the symptoms and long term effects. She has helped with my dietary needs and overall well being. Highly recommend if you are still feeling the symptoms even if your on traditional medications.

The best part of talking with new patients…

I have worked with Dianne Hinton at Calmglow for 4 years. I receive calls from new patients every day. I think the best part of talking with new patients is that I give them the knowledge and hope in knowing that I–like all of Dianne’s staff–was her patient before her employee. I think that says a lot about Dianne as a practitioner. She is very compassionate and caring towards each individual patient.

— Cindy Toste

Diane Hinton saved my life!

After over a year of traditional doctors misdiagnosing and mistreating my illness, Diane immediately got it right. She identified the root cause of my illness, and I went from being chronically ill to healed and healthy in less than a year. Diane listens to and cares for her patients like no one I’ve ever known. I highly recommend her for diagnosing the true health issues, rather than just treating your symptoms.

— Sarah Hayes

My husband and I just love Calmglow …

Just what is Functional Medicine?  Simply put…. I call it getting to the “cause” of a health issue. Rashes, High Pressure, Arthritis, Obesity, Insomnia, and Fatigue are a few of the issues she’s helped us with.  But what I really like best is; she doesn’t say “here, take this pill” and it’ll “treat the symptoms”.  She treats the “cause” of those symptoms so they truly go away without requiring “pills”.  Our bodies are healing, and the we feel we’re the healthiest we’ve been in a long time! What we’ve discovered about the manner in which our bodies “had been” functioning previously, from the in depth tests she recommends, was pretty astounding. We’ve learned so much since starting to see her as our practitioner, I would never choose to go back to an Allopathic doctor!
