Summer Heat is an SVT trigger for many. This is a quick reminder on all the things that you can do to avoid an SVT this summer…

  • Stay hydrated. At least 8 full, large glasses of water each day. MORE if you are exercising or working outside.
  • FRUIT, at least 3 per day. Good ones are watermelon, cantaloupe, and nectarineelectrolytes
  • Avoid Gluten. Even if you are not ready to become gluten free. Try to avoid gluten for a few weeks in a row this summer. Replace with brown rice, qunioa, and brown rice pasta, or home made  baked goods that you make with brown rice flour or GF rolled oats.
  • Add Electrolytes to your water. Buy a box and then carry the little one shot packets with you. Get them at a health food store and try add this into your rotation every day or every other day. (see picture)
  • Probiotics- I LIVE for probiotics. I cannot say enough about what a game changer they are. It’s all about keeping your gut happy and healthy. If you do nothing else, add in a good probiotic. NOTE: They need to be refrigerated. Do not buy the ones from a shelf. They are NOT the ones I mean. Probiotics are a live culture and to live need to stay cold. I use a basic Jarro dophilus brand.
  • Add in COOLING vege’s like cucumber, zucchini, coconut, avocado, romaine lettuce, and berries into your daily diet!.
  • Ice water with lemon or lime or mint leaves or slices of oranges or anything unqiue that you can think of that sounds yummy with ice. Stay cool.
  • When you get too hot, take a break! If you don’t have A/C use the old fashion cold washcloth method…on the wrists and neck.
  • REST, lay down for 10 minutes every day. No need for a 2 hour nap, a few little rests will do.
  • Make sure your bowels are moving. If you are not having a nice, satisfying bowel movement every single morning…there are things that you can do to make this happen! (I can help you with this!)
  • Listen to your body! Whatever that means for you. If your body is talking, try to listen. These messages are unique to only you!
  • Start a morning ritual where each morning upon waking, you ask your self“What foods would best serve me today? What do I need?” and wait for the answer…it might surprise you!
  • Reach out for help!
