Isaiah 58:8


Listen to your Body


 By Tracy Byrd, Certified Fitness Coordinator, Coach, Trainer & 2x World Boxing Champion

Many people feel aches and pains in their body due to workouts, undue stress or simply everyday living. If you haven’t felt any body pain, then as my mother would say, “just live a little longer!” These feelings of discomfort in your body is actually your body speaking and you should be listening. Here are some simple relief techniques: Prayer & Meditation, a good Spa Day, Eating Healthy, Breathing Easy (3-5 minutes of slow deep breathing), Exercise, a hot bath/shower, then ice (20 minutes to sore area) and a good night sleep.

Workouts: When working out if you “Feel the burn” in your muscles during a tough workout that is a perfectly normal sign that you’re challenging your body. Sweating and labored breathing can also be quite natural. But throbbing joints or sudden, sharp pains anywhere are signs that you need to stop what you’re doing. Also, post-workout pain that do not let up after a few days of rest and ice warrants a trip to the doctor.

When your body speaks, listen, learn, and relieve!

Blood Pressure



When diagnosed with high blood pressure, most individuals are given strict orders to improve their diet and start exercising. When blood pressure is very high, the doctor may wish to start the patient on blood pressure-lowering medications. While eating healthy can help lower blood pressure over time, there are specific foods you can eat that will target high blood pressure and may quickly reverse the condition. Eating these foods will have the added benefit of aiding in weight loss, which in turn, will help lower blood pressure as well:

WHOLE GRAINS (oatmeal, oat bran muffins); LOW-FAT DAIRY (skim milk, fat-free yogurt); SPINACH (fresh, prepackaged or frozen); NUTS, SEEDS, & BEANS (edamame, soybeans, unsalted sunflower seeds); BANANAS (add to smoothies or to grain toast & peanut butter); BAKED POTATOES (use a little low-fat sour cream); DARK CHOCOLATE (small amount); SALMON (high in protein & vitamin D); GREEN TEA (high in antioxidants); AVOCADOS (high in antioxidants, B6, magnesium, folic acid)
