REALITY CHECK

alphabet-3359584A lot of terminology has been thrown at you in my blogs. Some familiar and some not so familiar. In the dance studio I owned, terminology was taught as part of the curriculum. The lack of terminology made it difficult for a child/adult to learn how to dance. Terminology refers to specific words and terms associated with specific businesses or special subjects. It is a necessity for you to understand what I am talking about when the health terminology is over your head. The following is a review of some of the terms already used and some new terminology to be introduced.

ALKALINITY – disperses, moves and cleans the body. It is also the key to the bodies regeneration and restoration. 80% is preferable to nature.
ACIDS – coagulate, form mucus and stagnate the body. 20% is preferable to nature.
INFLAMMATION – in health talk, is a localized response to cellular injury as marked by redness, heat, and pain in the damaged location.
GASTRITIS –inflammation of the stomach.
ENTERITIS – inflammation of the small intestine.
COLITIS – inflammation of the colon or large intestine.
DIVERTICULITIS – inflammation of the bowel (intestinal pockets).
S.A.D. – the Standard American Diet, which is now being proven to weaken the body instead of strengthen it.

In the future, you might want to remember that anything with “itis” at the end is related to inflammation.

Are you overwhelmed yet?

Thanks for wanting to continue your education on health concerns.  As always….God Bless!

TUTTI-FRUITY

The Detox Plan recommended the consumption of a lot of fruit.

image006

I can hear the questions now – WHY so much fruit?  Because it is the start of Detoxification.  WHAT fruits should I eat?  Will be listed below. HOW can I eat just fruit and not get tired of it?  Fruit can be prepared in many ways, be creative. WILL eating that much fruit spike my blood sugar?  It shouldn’t as the sugar in fruit is NATURAL and not manufactured or processed. WHAT if my doctor tells me not to eat fruit? Research the facts and make your own decision.

searchThe world is abound with many varieties of fruit.

To help make the selection easier for you all, the fruits are categorized as follows and with combining suggestions.

unnamed

SWEET FRUITS – include: Bananas, Persimmons, Dates, Figs, Raisins, Prunes, Jackfruit, and dried fruits.  These fruits work best when not used with Acid Fruits. They combine well with Lettuce and Celery.

imagesSUB-ACID FRUITS – include: grapes, Pears, Apples, Peaches, Plums, Papayas, Blueberries, Raspberries.
These can be combined with Acid or Sweet Fruits, but
not both at the same time.  Good with lettuce and celery.

searchACID FRUITS – include: Grapefruit, Oranges, Limes, Kiwi, Pineapple, Strawberries, Pomegranate, Lemons and Tomatoes.  These work well with Sub-Acid, but not with Sweet Fruits.  Good with celery and lettuce.

unnamed MELONS – include: Watermelon, Honeydew, Cantelopes.

The seasons of the year are not the same in Different regions of the world. It is wise to eat the fruits in season where you are located. However, don’t shy away from trying some of the exotic fruits sold in the fruit department of your local grocery store, or health food store.  Do clean the fruit before you eat it. Today there are many pesticides and poisons used to produce what the government calls Super Foods. This can and is detrimental to the health of everyone.

Take a chance, use the Internet to do your own research regarding all of the above and more. This is the start of the regeneration of the new YOU!

Veggies are next on the agenda.  Happy eating and may God Bless!

DINNER: Large raw vegetable salad (avoid using iceberg lettuce as it constipates). Put any other kind of lettuce (red leaf, romaine, bibb etc.) you want in your salad.  For Salad dressing, use Balsamic Vinegar dressing or just sprinkle it with fresh Lemon Juice and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  OR – You can have a small dish of Vegetable Soup (no tomatoes). Make it yourself out of fresh vegetables.

water-1187656__340.jpg

TIP: Drinking one 8 oz. glass of water 30 minutes before you eat helps fill you up so you won’t over eat. You can also drink it 30 minutes after you eat. You can drink water any time during the day that you want –JUST NOT AT THE SAME TIME AS EATING MEALS/DURING THE MEAL. It dilutes the natural digestive juices which you do not want to do.

STAY AWAY FROM:

Do Not – eat any Meat, Dairy or Bread products. DISCONTINUE the use of coffee, tea, alcohol, tobacco, over-the-counter medications if they apply. Keep taking  your prescription medications as needed until your doctor tells you, you don’t need them anymore.

YOU MAY – experience weakness so get plenty of rest – as the DETOXIFICATION process has begun.  Exercise only mildly or not at all during these 2-3 weeks. Walking is great. Let your body dictate what you can and cannot do.

To Detox is good. YOU WILL END UP FULL OF VIM, VIGOR AND VITALITY!

Would love to hear how you do. Until next time – God Bless!

DETOXIFICATION STARTS….

In the MIND…..with the MIND SET.  Do I just want to do it to see if I like it? I want to do it, but do I really need to?  Do I even have health issues?  What if I don’t like it? DO I REALLY WANT TO DETOX AND WILL I STICK WITH THE PROCESS ONCE I FIND OUT WHAT IT ENTAILS AND HOW IT REALLY WORKS?  AM I WILLING TO MAKE A LIFESTYLE CHANGE? The only person who can answer these questions is YOU!

Other Questions:  Will my doctor approve?  Will it hurt me?  WILL IT INTERFERE WITH THE PRESCRIPTION DRUGS I AM TAKING? Will it make me sick? Will it make me fat?  Will it make me lose weight and how? These questions and many others can and should be answered by a good Detoxification Specialist.

All of the above are legitimate questions. The bottom line is – YOU HAVE TO BE PREPARED MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY AND SPIRITUALLY TO DO A DETOX PROGRAM IN ORDER FOR IT TO WORK for YOU.

With the DIET…..A detox diet plan is not anything like the conventional diets you see advertised on TV or any of the latest trends.  Diets these days seem to be trendy. Some are long lived. Some are short lived. Some work and some don’t.  A good DETOX DIET PLAN will change your life, BUT only if you stick with it for the rest of your life.

OKAY FRUGIVORES are you ready to start?

It’s time to read previous blogs. They will help you to know where this journey is taking you.

God Bless!!!!

BACK TO DETOX!

To summarize from a previous blog, a person is in need of detoxing if he/she is experiencing any kind of health issue, or if they just want to feel better, or just because.  Of course if one wants to feel better it is an indication that something is wrong. And,”just because” subtly is a secret desire to reverse the condition the body is in, or the way you feel. That is the focus of Detoxification.

You ask, HOW?  By restoring the function of all the body parts (listed in a previous blog) to the condition they were in when you were feeling good, without sickness or diseases.

20160917_173156-24At birth the body is near perfect; because it hasn’t been exposed to the outside of the womb world. From the first breath of air it begins the journey into a toxic existence.

The body later in life is the product of years of toxin build up by way of poor food choices, exposure to bad air, poor water, alcohol, smoking, drug use by choice or prescription (both of which can become habit forming), and in general poor hygiene.  NOW, the body is in need of detoxification in order to restore it to the near perfect body it was at birth.

There is a lot of hype declaring that detoxing can be done in a day, a week, a month, a short period of time and quickly.  NOT SO!!!!

The purpose of detoxing, is to clean house by ridding the body of toxin build-up in the body systems – to include the glands, heart, lungs, kidneys etc, etc. so the body can start it’s own healing process.  In order to do this the proper nutrition needs to be going into the system by way of Natural Supplements and Natural Foods that have not been exposed to pesticides, chemicals and other manmade harmful substances.

Give it serious thought, my readers. It took years of abuse to destroy your body and its functions, and it will take at least 1-5 years to restore it, depending on the condition it is in when you begin the Detox process. Do you really want to live in a sickly body?  Wouldn’t it be more fun to be full of vitality again, to be able to enjoy life?

With all of that rhetoric out of way, START NOW! TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR BODY! HEAL THYSELF! and LOOK FORWARD TO A NEW YOU!

Until our next session.  God Bless!

 

TIDBITS OF CURRENT HEALTH NEWS

 


“All diseases may by sure means be prevented or cured, not excepting that of old age, and our lives lengthened at pleasure even beyond the (current) standard…”

This was in a letter written by Benjamin Franklin in the year 1780. What do you suppose he was talking about?  Why AGING of course.  I decided years ago that I wish to live beyond the age of 100.  Some folks do as well, and some folks just say “not me.”

The  Life Extension Magazine has a fascinating article about Rejuvenation (age reversal). To quote: “This article describes how Life Extension Foundation and others have joined to launch a new company called Age Reversal Therapeutics, Inc.”

The Company, quote “has been established to rapidly transform already developed medical technologies into the human clinical arena.” It’s objective, quote “is to engineer cellular DNA so there will be no upper-limit threshold whereby maturing humans will be deprived of youthful health and well-being.”

WOW!  This is huge.  In biblical times peoples lived to be well into the hundred’s of years old. Can that actually happen today….or will it in the future?

A lot is already known about biological aging, with many years of scientific research going into the study of how to eradicate old age. Many seniors are wanting to find an Anti-Aging Drug.  This is just the tip of the iceberg.  I am sure there will be and already are ups and downs involved in the process of this research. As I read the article I was fascinated by one statement, to quote “If one is fortunate to make it to advanced age in relatively good health, their most dangerous vulnerability is a deteriorating  immune system.”

I know, but do you know, or understand, the importance of a healthy immune system. This will be the topic of a future blog. In the meantime will therapeutic age reversal alter the course of Medical History?  We’ll just have to wait and see.

Until next time, may God Bless!

 

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!

We’ve all heard this expression before…..and it is basically true.  Every bit of food or anything else one puts in his/her system is utilized one way or another; sometimes for the good and sometimes for the not so good (bad).

I’ve  had many questions regarding Detoxification.  The big one being WHY do I need to detox?  No one can answer that question but you.  How do you feel on a regular basis?  Are you having health issues? What are your sleep habits?  Do you have any problems that involve any of the body parts mentioned in my last blog such as digestion, elimination, heart, cognitive, muscular, blood, bone, the list goes on and on? Are you willing to change a lifestyle that is giving you grief? That means putting into action the suggestions and helps offered in this blog and others you might have explored, as long as they will not do your body harm. Are you willing to stop drinking coffee and other caffeinated beverages, stop drinking alcohol, quit smoking and, if using drugs, quit, if they are non-prescribed drugs? All of these are important changes one needs to commit to if one is serious about improving their health and revitalizing the body.

As a Detox  specialist I am here to help you take charge of your own health.  Wake up the new you! Many of my blogs will be action plans and suggestions to assist you in doing just that.

There will be various columns on a regular basis to include: FOOD FOR THOUGHT; TID-BITS OF NEW HEALTH NEWS; TOPICS OF INTEREST; REALITY CHECK!; RECIPES – YOURS, MINE AND WHOEVER’S; FITNESS TIPS; DIET INFO; FOOD IN GENERAL; and SUPPLEMENT NEWS.

NOTE:  Comments are welcome.  Questions regarding health in general will be answered on my Blog. Personal questions concerning your health will be answered via e-mail provided you leave your name and e-mail address. Communications, of a personal nature, regarding health issues will be kept confidential.

As the old saying goes: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!” That is if you apply it.

Until next time, may God Bless your day!
