Sus­tain op­ti­mal weight with a balanced diet, set meal­times and daily ex­er­cise. Prac­tise med­i­ta­tion ( or any other stress­man­age­ment strate­gies that work for you). Con­sis­tency is key here, so put time aside ev­ery day.

Sup­ple­ment your diet with 1000mg of cal­cium daily, 500mg of mag­ne­sium once or twice a day and 2000mg

of omega-3, two to three times a day. Cal­cium-rich foods to in­cor­po­rate into your diet in­clude sea­weed, wheat or bar­ley grass, nuts, seeds, quinoa,

beans, greens, fish and chicken. In­crease your in­take of potas­sium, which is found in veg­eta­bles and bananas. Potas­sium helps to bal­ance out the sodium in the body. Ex­ces­sive sodium lev­els have been

linked to high blood pres­sure.
