Everyone loves the ocean. It makes us feel alive, but not all of us are able to get as much beach time as we'd like, if any. You’re in luck! Donna Ruko and One Medial Group's Dr. Natasha Bhuyan have three ways you can bring the ocean to your home this summer and enjoy all of the same health benefits, like you were right on the beach.

1.  Get the Nutrients From the Sea with Sea Veggies

These vegetables are packed with all types of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that have been used for beauty and medicinal purposes for centuries.

Spirulina is type of blue-green algae that has antioxidants and lots of beta carotene, so it's known for slowing the breakdown in your skin. It's also an anti-inflammatory, which is also great for your skin.

2.  Can't Walk Barefoot on the Beach? Try an Earthing Mat

When we make direct contact with the surface of the earth, our bodies receive a charge of energy that makes us feel better, fast. This is called earthing. The Earthing Mat's goal is to connect you to the earth's energy by using the outlet closest to the ground, which connects directly to the ground outside.

3.  Get Your Dose of Magnesium from Homemade Sea Water

Experts say magnesium depresses nerves, putting you into a more relaxed state.  It also promotes skin moisture. Some doctors say drinking a warm glass of salt water every day has a lot of health benefits.

Bringing the beauty of the ocean, right to your home this summer, and feeling energized by the health benefits!
