Stay Out of the Crowd If you are not able to attend a doctor’s appointment, it is best to avoid public places and stay home from home.
Drink Plenty of Water While there are many brands of water that contain the amino acid L-carnitine, it’s best to keep your water at a lower level of hardness and not use a high-calorie water such as Coca-Cola.
Drink a Lot of Water When you are out and about, keep your drinking water at around 6-7 cups of water per day.
Avoid over-saturation and avoid having excessive amounts of fluoride in your water.
Don’t Use Too Many Excess Calories As you can imagine, having too many excess calories in your diet can increase your risk of developing PVD (Preventable and Associated Diseases).
It’s important to be aware of the calories you are consuming and to keep a daily calorie goal that will give you the maximum amount of energy you need.
