Soul’s Physical Health Journey Part 6 of 13: Water – who knew?

cyh-ph-06

 

Over the course of four decades, I shudder to think how many pounds of sugar I drank!  According to a University of Nebraska study, I drank at LEAST 65 pounds of sugar a year for at least 20 years. How?  I know I drank at least one can of soda, daily, for decades.  What’s even MORE frightening is the word LEAST!  Do you know how much sugar is in alcohol! (If you do, I don’t want to know!)  So, simple math informs me that while I thought I was quenching my thirst, I consumed a minimum of 1300 pounds of sugar (20 years X 65 pounds).

waterHow much sugar do you drink in a day (let alone EAT in a day)?

Here’s a few points to ponder regarding the art of body hydration.

1) Only water (better yet, purified water) hydrates us.  Anything else BUT plain old water uses water as we digest whatever it is as drank.  Kindly note:  do NOT use bottled water.  Click here to learn about how our bottle water addiction is killing our planet.

2) Teas, coffees, sodas, alcohol, natural juices, you name it – while initially might feel like a thirst quencher, it isn’t.

3) Tap water in most cities is NOT the best source of water for your health, especially digestive health.  More and more studies report how municipal filtering systems are not equipped to filter out a plethora of pharmaceutical contaminants. Click this link to learn more about many other issues concerning tap water.

4) Purified water is the BEST way to help our bodies rid itself of toxins. How toxic are you?  If you don’t drink at least one eight-ounce glass of water an hour for most waking hours, it’s likely you’d benefit from a professionally recommended, all-nature detox program like mine.

I retired over 100 pounds in less than a year with the help of a refillable water bottle at my side – always! Please do your body (and our planet) a HUGE favor.  Get and use a refillable water bottle every day.  Your body thanks you!  Your planet thanks you!

Soul’s Physical Health Journey Part 7 of 13: Dairy – scary!

cyh-ph-07


 

Are you aware of what the federal, state and local laws mandate concerning U.S. diary cows?  Did you want to know?  I thought I did until I started googling around on this issue.  Our Center For Disease Control has more than a dozen frightening (to me at least) reports on what farmers MUST inject into diary cows in order to stay in compliance with a host of laws. While I appreciate the essence of such rules and regulations (to maintain a safe, healthy source of diary), the actual outcome is far from honoring our health and wellness.

20090518pmInoculations aside, we further complicate our diary intake by infusing all kinds of (what is claimed to be beneficial) additives to dairy products.  A common addition to most dairy products a wide range of liquid dyes to ensure that product just looks right!  Next, don’t forget to read your ingredient list on any dairy product to discover what (again, claimed to be beneficial) supplements are added to the mix.  While it’s nice to think manufacturers are watching out for your health by adding some supplements, is the grade of supplements used something our bodies can use or do our bodies treat these supplements as toxins.

Overall, when it comes to retiring unhealthy weight, the less toxins one consumes, the better the chances are you’ll drop those unhealthy pounds much more effortlessly.  (I know my excess weight dropped more quickly when I stopped buying off-the-shelf dairy products.) Given all the (what is claimed to be) beneficial aspects of ‘drinking a glass a day’ one MUST wonder, is it REALLY wise to drink all that fortified milk?  Based on our exponentially expanding obese children, do we need to question that catchy add slogan. “Milk! Does it do a body good.”

Soul’s Physical Health Journey Part 8 of 13: Cleansing – an ancient art.

cyh-ph-08



Okay, confess! What do you know about cleansing the inside of your body?
You enjoy a shower or bath to keep yourself clean on the outside. What about your insides? Frankly, I never really thought much about this issue until I got serious of gaining and maintaining a healthy weight. As I researched the traditional methods of weight reduction (diet and exercise programs), NO WHERE did I read anything about internal cleansing programs.

I wouldn’t have know about internal cleansing programs unless a student was kind enough to share with me how he keeps his body so fit – WITHOUT – a workout program. (Given the time, money and effort I’d placed in gyms, trainers, traffic, parking, etc., my ears perked up when he shared his cleansing story.)

potentialIn the span of a few short days, I researched like mad anything I could find concerning internal cleansing. For starters, our Chinese family have used cleansing programs for centuries! There’s the old colon cleanse. (I tried one of those, found it fascinating, but NOT something that I’ll engage on a regular basis.) Then there’s my liver, the primary body part involved with cleansing my body of unhealthy toxins.

Based on what my student reported, I tried his liver cleanse program. That program, known as Isagenix, opened my eyes – BIG TIME – to the benefits of liver cleansing. Why? In nine days I retired 12 pounds. Keep in mind, that’s MY results. Of course, your results will be different.

As I researched HOW I managed to clear 12 pounds in nine days, I found myself amazed at how well my body put up with my (what I thought to be) healthy diet. For example, did you know adults can retain at least 10 pounds of undigested meat in their intestines for days! Yikes! Then there’s the issue of consumed toxins in the form of pre-packaged foods, additives in livestock and produce, the air we breath, etc.

Did you know your liver attempts to protect your body from these toxins by stuffing them into fat cells if it can’t eliminate them correctly? For example, if you don’t drink enough water (see my previous post on this topic) your body can’t eliminate all the toxins you take in. Your liver then places those toxins inside your fat cells. Fat cells act much like a balloon. The more toxins you have, the larger the fat cells become. Not enough fat cells for all those toxins? No worries, our bodies create MORE fat cells! Yikes!

Today, I eat pretty much whatever I wish well after retiring over 100 pounds years ago! How? I feel safe and secure that my monthly cleanse program helps me detox / deflate those fat cells while at the same time helping my digestive system digest more efficiently by eliminating intestinal plaque.

FYI for all you body builders! I’ve got scores of professional body builders getting leaned out and buffed up with my program as well!

Heads up! I offer an unmatched in-home cleansing program to cleanse both physically and mentally! Call me (312) 268-0000 for a private, confidential pre-screening  / assessment to determine if you’re ready for my program.
