Why are weightloss companies failing you?

weight.jpeg

Anyone who has ever known me or been a patient knows my dislike for weight watching/weight loss groups, programs or plans – especially those advised by pharma, doctors or well known companies. Why?

Because pharma is not trained in health or diet; doctors do 6 hours of nutrition courses in their entire training (equivalent of a fraction of high school human biology); companies are set up purely to make money. Treatments to supposedly help someone lose weight are invariably temporary – and come laden with side effects.

Untrained distributors attend rah-rah meetings and learn how to flog products. Nothing gets me going faster than seeing someone struggling with health, flogging health products – or struggling with weightloss, flogging weightloss products.

ANY diet set out just to lose weight is doomed to fail you in some way or another. If not, surely every thin person would be free of sickness or chronic disease? That is simply not true. Likewise, it’s not about calories, food pyramid or 5 food groups – these little games were made up by people who had something to gain – usually fame and money – and they have led many generations down a slippery slope of ill health and obesity.

weight-loss-supplements

Likewise, losing weight rapidly like big budget TV weightloss type shows advocate are riddled with issues – starvation tactics are shocking to the body; they do not teach you how to interact with the real healing food; joint/muscle/bone injuries and damage are rife; the organ damage inflicted by such trauma and shock is not a one-off or temporary. It’s permanent. While the makeover end results are great and nice to see, it’s the punishment and self doubt that is soul destroying. And sadly, down the track only a fraction are successful.

The good news is that there IS a diet that heals, rebuilds at a cellular level AND weightloss is just a welcome side effect. Keep reading to find out how…

It’s no secret that obese people are among the most malnourished despite the amount of food consumed.There is SO much you can do to get to your ideal weight BUT it must revolve around HEALTH. Healthy living, healthy habits, healthy lifestyle. And for most, these things are alien. So, what to do?

vegan 6.jpg

1. Get alkaline – for any body to be healthy, it must be alkaline – otherwise you are ageing rapidly, acid is increasing your chance of chronic illness, cancer, emotional/psychiatric illness, organ damage and yes, obesity. This point also rings true for people who cannot gain weight. See my links at HERE and link below for the CHAPS eating plan which is a food preparation and diet plan based on Dr Robert Young’s incredible research over many decades and hundreds of thousands of cases, all based around a neutral pH.

0 7 detox

2. Get moving – for some this is very difficult – but even passive exercise will help. It can be as simple as walking outside. In fact, get that vitamin D into you – it is going to have many more benefits than sitting inside thinking about it. Find an exercise program based around your life or abilities. There is an exercise program for us all – it should not be painful, other than occasional muscle burn. If you are confused, see a physio who teaches clinical pilates which will help your health as well as your body. Smashing and pounding your body at a gym may work for a while if you are inspired, but for most a gym membership is a waste.

3. Stop bad habits – do you drink sugary coke? Coffee? Lots of alcohol? Choc milks or iced coffee? STOP! Don’t cut down – it’s not about moderation – it’s about doing ALL you can to undo the damage you have already inflicted. It’s your only chance on your only body – it’s up to you, not some magical medical procedure or side-effect laden pill.

diabetes-diabesity

4. Find your ‘instead’ – so if you eat a lot of bread, find something else to eat instead – gluten, the protein in wheat and a few other grains, is one of the worst things you can do for your health – pain, inflammation, weight gain, digestive upset, etc. Cut it completely. Find a gluten free bread or crackers – and even luscious snacks by all means but it’s only bad habits that dictate that we must eat it with every meal. Change that habit. If you reach for table salt every meal, use Himalayan salt instead – full of electrolytes and actually good for your cells. If you reach for sugar to go with everything, make sure it’s stevia or xylitol instead. Ask what your INSTEAD is with every single habit and choice. Just because it has the dodgy healthy heart tick or weight watchers stamp of approval does not make it healthy. People actually sit around board tables discussing how to do grant proposals to set these ridiculous programs up. The latest one in Australia is probably the worst yet – Milo gets a top mark for health and wellbeing. Are you kidding me? With actors as usual, faking some form of health and fitness background. By the way, you can still get your chocolate fix

5. Water – yes, this suggestion has been done to death. That is because it’s a valid one! Did you know, if you feel thirsty, your body is already dehydrated? Your brain is the last organ to recognise thirst but once you feel thirsty your body is already in panic mode and going through damaging chemical reactions to cope – and your brain is past needing water – it actually begins to dry out and shrink. Drink water all day, even if you have to sip it. No, don’t add sugary cordials. And no, coffee or tea is not water. Stop tainting it! The only thing I ever suggest going into your water is lemon or lime juice. And for every ‘other’ drink you have – whether it’s alcohol, coffee, tea, iced drinks, fizzy drinks, etc – you need at least another cup of water instead – to undo the damage. While I don’t advocate alcohol, I know in the real world people drink it – so choose less sugary options. Without sugary fizzy additive drinks – instead, use soda water and a dash of fresh lemon or lime. Water down wine with soda water. Instead of club lemon, how about fresh lemon?NOT sugar.

6. Herbal teas – did you know, you can actually treat your health almost 100% through well chosen herbal teas? Okay so you’d really have to like tea to do that (luckily I have learned to love it) but yes, it can be done. Appetite suppressing tea, energising tea, sleep-inducing tea, lymphatic flushing tea, and so on. There are even fasting teas that help you to go without food… Just a few easy-to-make-at-home ideas (no sweetener or milk):

  • Ginger – balances hormones, soothes/heals digestion, achey joints (grate 1 teaspoon or 1 teaspoon dried, into cup hot water)
  • Parsley – flushes kidneys, clears fluid and acidity (1 teaspoon in hot water with lemon juice)
  • Rosemary – period pain, concentration and antibacterial (1 sprig in hot water)
  • Lemon grass – clears skin and blood (finely chop approx 1 teaspoon and add to hot water)
  • Sage – hormone balancing, calming (1 teaspoon in hot water)
  • Rooibos – tonic (as per directions – no milk)
  • Slippery elm – soothes stomach pain (1 teaspoon in hot water, mix well)
  • Lemon and cayenne – increases thermogenic processes (half teaspoon cayenne in half cup hot water, dash lemon juice)
  • Aloe vera – soothes digestion, skin, great laxative (squeeze contents of a 1 inch slice of aloe leaf into hot water and lemon juice)
  • Psyllium – clears bowel (1 teaspoon dissolved in hot water, with lemon)

7. Fasting – yes, you heard right. Did you know why ‘break-fast’ is named just so? Because it is meant to be the breaking of the fast. As in you should not have eaten since daybreak the previous day. And yes, that means nothing except water. Few live by this healthy rule any longer. And did you know that contrary to popular folk lore (aka modern day health advice) it does not mean shovel in as many calories as you can? It means eating healthy to fuel your body – FYI fatty food and starchy processed carbs do not fuel your body. So how do you fast? Every night eat a light meal and lots of water.

Sleep.

weight 4

Do not get up and have that midnight snack – make sure there is NOTHING in the fridge or pantry that resembles the life you now lead. The most astounding thing is, yes, you can have ice-cream or cake even – which tastes even better than what you now know as those foods (see free recipe page here – click on photos, albums and recipes are attached to each photo in each section).

In the morning, start with a drink of water with lemon added. If you have digestive problems, have some slippery elm to line the entire GI tract. If you suffer constipation, soak some psyllium in a tall glass of water and allow to soak up – then drink. Either dissolved in hot water or eaten off the spoon, coconut oil will flush not just cellulite but plaque from the bowel.

A detox 3

Then have a smoothie – or a freshly squeezed juice – have both if you have a large appetite or demanding day. If cereal and fruit is your thing, try raw muesli. They will give you more nutrients than any other diet possible. So, by doing this you are fasting every single night – hopefully for 12 hours – so 6 to 6, 7 to 7, or 8 to 8 and so on. And try an easy, occasional fast for real. You will need more preparation for this but you will find more here – HERE

8. Natural supplements to help heal and rebuild your body – ask yourself why health nuts are usually thin and healthy ‘looking’ – we’re not lucky magical people. Most of us have a chronically ill past but just decided enough was enough. We eat well, even if we feel like gorging some days. We stick to healthy habits – it takes some effort but it’s worth it. We don’t rely on medications to keep us alive – even if some of us did once. We just find a healthy new way to live. As in really live, not just exist.

supps2

Everything I recommend is vegan, organic and ethically sourced – all done for you – and postage from this company (now my chosen supplier due to low costs) is just a few dollars no matter where you are. It’s all affordable – far moreso than buying more food than any of us need every day. So what supplements can help you? There are just so many – find the ones that will help you but please, start with the superfood tonics, healthy foods, superfoods, high nutrients – the stuff that health is made from –

a) Appetite suppressant (healthy kind) – HERE
b) Digestive/vital organ tonic/thyroid tonic/lymphatic flush – HERE
c) Fat burning/metaboliser (non chemical) – HERE
d) Thermogenic/detox tea – HERE
e) Sugar/fat metabolism – HERE
f) Superfood/tonic/vitamin/antioxidant/herbal (vital) – HERE
g) Trace elements/minerals/energy (vital) – HERE
h) Essential fatty acids/Omegas 3/6/9 – HERE
i) Superfood meal replacement – HERE

– none of the above have the same bad side effects that are linked to so many pharma-based diet pills and treatments. They simply work. It’s not about the latest fad, or the VLCD which is a starvation diet that your body is going to rebel against; ever noticed why all these poor girls, excited about ‘advising’ you on TV ads, still carrying the extra weight – are nowhere to be seen down the track? When it fails they simply find another girl to do the ad, and so on.

If weightloss comes without health, what is the point? I’ve lost count of the number of weightloss patients who came to me AFTER they lost the weight and were seriously ill. Get healthy – weightloss will follow.

Constipation – today’s ‘normal’?

Recently I came upon what I initially believed to be a really good parenting website – well sorry guys, for mums only apparently –  as only mums offer ‘sound’ advice on all things parenting. Pfft.

As usual, it was filled with health and advice topics but it wasn’t long before I was gritting my teeth and chomping to start posting. Mothers were actually suggesting that other mothers were wrong in using a healthy diet. To go and discuss diet with doctors, who are untrained in nutrition. I was the 5th alternative health professional to try and comment. You could hear the tumbleweeds. Other mothers who argued that they had raised children using safe and effective natural health methods were attacked.  If I didn’t force myself away I am pretty sure I could be responding for the next year – such is the level of misinformation on health care out there.

As parenting slides down the slippery slope from something natural, to something that now requires constant medical, media and big brother monitoring I have to ask – how did something that should be instinctual, become so tightly bound in fear and manipulation? Kids are actually being abused and tortured in the name of health in 2015. There is now a common procedure within paediatric medicine which involves insertion of a nasogastric tube, administration of strong aperients and minerals, to drag the digestive system clean. It is painful and traumatic. Manual evacuation of impacted faeces is also common. But we can’t mention diet or gentle therapies?

maxresdefault

The most basic of issues are now serious medical issues. Drugs are prescribed for even the minor concerns – no one seems aware that those scheduled drugs have side effects. Surgery is seen as some achievement – it’s pretty commonplace nowadays to see a gaggle of excited/tired mums gather and boast of the paediatrician, specialists and latest surgical procedures.

images-24

My kids were seen as an oddity while growing up and they each, at different times, came to me asking if I would let them be a ‘normal kid’ – why? “Because all my friends have had operations, needles, are on medications, see specialists or psychiatrists.”

blog4

Don’t get me wrong, raising 4 children was no walk in the park, especially for a (mostly) single parent. It’s just that I actively sought the best, most effective, SAFE options every single time extra effort was needed. And aside from an occasional plaster cast, there was ALWAYS an alternative.

images-9

So too with digestive disorders. Let’s get back to the basics – in utero, a baby’s body is formed based on a cocktail of DNA, heredity, chemical exposure, diet, stress and medications/supplementation. The digestion is already gearing for assault. If not delivered naturally, the most fundamental process for health is not transferred from mother to child – natural immunity and probiotic formation. If that basic nutrient/chemical is not supplemented after birth, the child is already set for some major health issues. This stems from poor immunity and digestive disorders and affects every aspect of health.

Unknown-7

Then, the choice between breast feeding and bottle feeding rears its ugly head. This article is not an exercise in ethics or guilt but the simple fact is, the western world is the only sector where it is a ‘choice’ – and for some mystical reason millions of westerners ‘can’t’ breastfeed. I wonder why we are any different? For me it was not even a question – I would have done anything to make sure I could feed my baby the healthiest way possible – and sadly, in my circle of friends, I was the only one who did. With the middle child, the same thing. And with the twins, while even midwives and doctors went on about my ‘choices’ I didn’t see it. Even when it became obvious that just one side was ‘working’ I still fed both of them up to 12 months. No heroics, it was the best and I took steps to make sure it worked. Herbs, supplements, diet – I made it work.

images-28

Why is this so important? Somewhere along the line, vaccines and antibiotics took over where mother’s milk once stood. What naturally builds over time – natural immunity and protection – is now long gone. By the time a child reaches 1 year old, their bowel is no longer making red blood cells* and many food intolerances are ignored.

  • For the record, the true place of RBC manufacture is the large intestine – over time, as damage increases, the spleen and then bones take over – in turn, leeching vital nutrients (calcium, magnesium, silica etc) and causing osteoporotic processes while in childhood. Rather than address this with the simplest method – diet, we have become conditioned to ignore it until it becomes life threatening.

images-10

Why do you need to know this information? Well considering health begins in the digestive system, unless we address it from an early age, we are facing chronic ill health. Why is it considered quite okay to just wait to see if we end up with cancer, diabetes, and so on? Why do we now think sickness is a part of old age? It’s not. And yet it is.

We are happy to say we have allergies, yet loathe to do anything about it – yet by simply going alkaline, allergies become a thing of the past. No, we’d rather go and get a medicine that comes with a host of side effects. Worse still, we’d rather go and have a camera invading our bowel just to be told what, that we have a slow digestion?

What food intolerances are precursors or even long term effects of constipation? Has your doctor ever mentioned the importance of body pH? Yet it is THE most vital aspect of health.

Are you intentionally missing certain foods? Why is that? And more importantly, who told you this? Did you know that doctors study an elective 6 hours maximum of nutrition? And that most dietitians learn their advice from industry written books? That means people who have something to sell – wheat, dairy, meat and sugar industry. Did you get your advice from them?

In the full article, see why our eyes are linked to the health of our bowel. And find out why certain bacteria could be the difference between bowel health or your excretory system packing it in altogether. An iridologist can determine if a patient has a constipation issue without even having to use any special iriscope. It is that obvious, as the toxins begin to leech into surrounding organs and circulation. Eventually the kidneys, liver and even reproductive system are badly effected as they attempt to excrete the toxic buildup.

Unicorn Gold is a ‘before-you-squat’ potty spray. Just a few sprays of Unicorn Gold into the toilet bowl and that, skunky, putrid bathroom stench stays where it belongs – trapped deep below the surface of the toilet water. Made with REAL GOLD!

While I don’t recommend constant or excessive use of any aperient/laxative medicines, surely making an organ do its job is better than waiting for something irreversible? There are many foods that help with occasional constipation like prunes, citrus, apricots, even some chewing gums – but each of these is acidic so all they are doing is shocking the body on a temporary basis. The overall aim is to rebalance the body.

What illnesses and symptoms are linked to constipation?

  • Anal fissure (tearing)
  • Hæmorrhoids
  • Diverticulitis
  • Abdominal pain
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Colo-rectal cancer
  • Belching, bloating & flatulence
  • Weightgain
  • Nausea & vomiting
  • Impaction & bowel rupture
  • Enlarged bowel
  • Anæmia
  • Fertility issues
  • Headaches

What issues can be associated or cause constipation?

  • Medication side effects
  • Low natural probiotic reserves
  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Iron & calcium supplements
  • Analgesia side effects
  • Low water and oil intake
  • Incorrect posture
  • Incorrect toileting posture
  • Pelvic floor dysfunction or injury
  • Hormone imbalance, especially œstrogen dominance
  • Pregnancy
  • Low dietary fibre

For more information on the correct diet, please see my threads on the pH miracle. But what about at-home measures that not only correct elimination regardless of age, but prevent and even reverse chronic health issues?

Probiotics – The human body consists of 90% pathogens and parasites – most of them beneficial. However, once there is an imbalance, the digestive and immune systems decline. Probiotics have many functions and are safe for use during pregnancy, for infants right through to old age. This formula has not just digestive tonics that are safe and gentle, but also a powerful probiotic that will assist in digestion, elimination and immunity – Probioactive – suitable for use in infancy and childhood. If you prefer a drop formula – Jarro-dophilus will better suit you. For older children, these chewable Berry-dophilus will help make it fun. Adult/family probiotics – Power-Dophilus.

Vital oils

  • 1 teaspoon (children) or 1 tablespoon (over 12) of coconut oil daily will not only work as a gentle laxative but release colonic plaque buildup.
  • For chronic issues and to avoid surgery, 1 teaspoon (children) or 1 tablespoon (over 12) of castor oil will relax the bowel and stimulate peristalsis while moving impaction and buildup.

Toileting habits

In many cultures and in history, humans squatted to straighten the lower bowel and evacuate sufficiently. This is especially effective when dealing with weak pelvic floors, those affected by long term medication or constipation, as it alleviates straining. There are many who prefer a squatting toilet, however in the western world most would prefer to sit. In this case you can use a simple small footstool to elevate both feet while on the toilet. This is one of the most simplest but effective measures for those with limited mobility.

Enema – many cultures use this simple at-home method on a regular basis to aid with removal of both parasites and constipation. Soap pellets are a common treatment in many African nations – mixed with herbs, they are an effective alternative to soap enemas still used in hospitals today. Simple saline enemas can be purchased, washed and re-used by using coffee, oil or soapy water. This is especially good for someone who is constipation long term – the impaction can be impossible to shift from top down, so moving things from the bottom up is the way to deal with it safely and effectively. Larger enema kits can be purchased online but the small saline 150ml bottles are more than enough.

brucemedical_2272_6254744

Movement – simple movement. In infants, this can mean gentle pushing up and straightening of the legs repeatedly (warning – this must be done gently and was their muscles allow rather than forcing). Once a regular practice by new mothers and taught by child health nurses, it has all but disappeared. In older children, sedentary lives lead into worsening problems in adults. It’s no coincidence that a dog or horse, upon exercise, will evacuate within a relatively short time of exerting themselves. Movement can also include a form of acupressure which needs no professional instruction. Beginning under the rib cage and working down in straight lines, from the centre of the abdomen to just above the pubic bone, repeat to each side, then again further out until you have made four imaginary lines each side of the median – simply by pressing and releasing gently, as if you are massaging. Press and release – move the hands down a centimetre or two, press and release, move the hands down again and continue to repeat. This works in a combination of massaging the bowel contents and correcting imbalances of the digestion.

Constipation does not ‘just’ happen. It is the end result of many things. It is neither normal or part of a healthy lifestyle. As all things lead to digestion and bowel health, it is imperative that it is dealt with swiftly and in an ongoing manner. I have sadly heard of too many deaths from bowel-related health, including 100% unnecessary and unavoidable intestinal ruptures, to not want to write on this subject. Constipation in infants and children is at the highest level ever, despite access to fresh food and water, as is chronic ill health. It is up to every parent to ensure it is dealt with before it becomes a life threatening issue.

Cellulite – vanity or dangerous health issue warning?

Cellulite – is it a vanity thing or a health issue? It may be news to some that my natural therapy training took me to PhD studies quite a few years back now. Hardly surprising – considing I had to finish about 10 years of studies just to be considered even remotely close to a GP. Not that having ‘Doctor’ in front of my name would make me any more smart or worthy, but it’s the way society sees us – and sadly, some will only trust a naturopath if we have those two little letters in front of our name (or in my case, the 3 letters after my name). So, what was the subject of my thesis?

cellulite

My research led me to the conclusion that cellulite, like ALL health symptoms, is not a stand-alone issue. In fact, even though it is predominantly a female issue, men can and do suffer from it (but just called fat) and yes, it is attached to a L-O-N-G chain of chronic and even terminal health issues and afflictions. It’s a sad thing that so many women I see have been told it’s just part of being a woman…

That’s not to say you rush off and panic about some hidden sickness. Basically, my research led me to realise that the lymphatic system is possibly the most overlooked and undervalued system of the body. Think about it – like a sewer, the lymphatic system is invisible. It is responsible for taking the waste away that your blood cannot flush into the intestines for excretion. Over time, the lines become gluggy and built up. Yes, we all know about swollen glands, but what about totally bunged up lymphatic pathways?

cell3

We should all be able to gently rub our skin with our fingertips without tiny nodules being palpable. Yet today, almost 100% of the patients I see, if I run my fingers over their skin, all display rugged little bumps and irregularities. Run your finger over a child’s skin and even if they are chubby, they will have incredibly smooth skin. Yet within 20 years it feels like a microscopic off-road track. It came as no surprise that almost 100% of case subjects had symptoms of chronic illness and obesity, even though very thin, young and seemingly healthy girls could also have the dimply demons.

Cellulite, as ugly as it is, is still ignored by the health profession – very frustrating from an iridology angle – a blocked lymphatic system is VERY visible… And considering it’s linked to lymphatic cancer, lymphadenitis, and even elephantiasis, I really can’t believe that it’s one of the many diseases that are addressed AFTER the fact – considering it’s so easy to address early on.

14lymphaticringIris-Signs-004Lymphatic-Rosary-150x150

As one GP said to me, “Once you develop such a bad blockage of the lymphatics that you need a wheelchair, we have very good services and aids in place that could help with mobility.” So, for the thousands out there who simply seize up thanks to mismanagement, we would have to just accept an invalid life? Another GP once said to me ‘Just eat less calories’ – oh, so you mean less calories than the mostly salad and rawfood diet I was already eating? Less calories than the regular fasting I was doing? So much misinformation out there!

homepage-3

In the 90s, motivated as much by fear as I was by clinical frustration, I developed a two pronged program – internal drops and external body brushing and lotion which could loosen up what had become untouchable internally, by either the lymphatic or circulatory vessels. No, cellulite will do no more to your health than cause embarrassment, but it is very closely associated, out outward sign of true, chronic sickness – not quite causing it, but just may possibly be seen as a side effect of a wide range of sickness.

For example, why is it linked only to around 40% of obesity patients? Why is it so common in diabetes, but only in the abdomen? Why do those with leg cellulite display more heart disease symptoms than anyone else? Why is it very common in depression cases? Why do generations of unvaccinated and unmedicated families show no signs of lymphatic ill health? Of course, these are all serious issues that need addressing and simply removing cellulite wont get rid of the other symptoms. But for now, let’s look at removing the ugly side of these health issues. So, what do you do about it?

cell1

Around the time I did my thesis, a French company released (an unnamed) miracle treatment for cellulite that, thanks to overpricing, left my patients rushing to my clinic in droves to buy the treatment I had formulated for less than half the price. At the clinic I was practicing in at the time, we had wealthy ladies from Singapore actually fly to Perth just to buy this heavily promoted fad in bulk. What they spent on one trip could fund an entire village for a year – including their health problems – but such was the clever media coverage and advertising.

Meanwhile for my long story short, lots of success, lots of incredible results (including knock-on effects on other associated symptoms) and hand written thanks (yes, in the days before PCs and facebook) – but without financial support and a ton of attack thanks to the TGA and Australian medical association, I was forced to stop selling it. In short, and in the TGA’s own words, ‘If your product does not have the capacity to cause harm, we cannot approve or register it.’

There are treatments – it takes an alkaline diet and a safe transdermal cream to break down the blockages. Treat the entire body – remove toxic build up and fibrous networks of unnecessary gunk. Unfortunately my products are no longer on the market but I have found products that work just as well. So, what steps?

Get your body alkaline – information here – you wont get rid of cellulite without this one step. The diet is found here

It’s not just fat that causes cellulite – in fact one of the very first really bad cases I saw as a teen was with my ærobics instructor – she was as fit as anyone I knew but suffered badly, only in the thigh area – she ate healthy and played sport all day, but was addicted to bread and other processed carbs – a massive portion of cellulite is linked to  both carbohydrate and protein toxicity (ask why bodybuilders and athletes who overdo the protein and carb intake all end up suffering the worst from the visible effects) – your lymphatics become blocked and engorged, trapping other foreign particles that form the glue in your arteries – calcium, parasites, waste…

cell4

Gluten is one of the main causative criminals in cellulite formation – it’s amazing at just what a difference removing gluten from the diet makes. Massage is a great step, as is JET type therapy, so is manual lymphatic drainage. Colonic irrigation will begin a great flush but if you are not up for that, there is a great internal flush link below. At-home coffee enemas shock the liver and in turn, the lymphatics and are a great way to remove unnecessary fats. cupping therapy easily done at home will also bring rapid results. I am currently working with an orgone scientist to develop an exclusive cupping set to have even more harmonising benefits.

Hot lemon drinks in the morning – just fresh lemon juice in hot water, is the best start to a day you can have. Add a heaped teaspoon of coconut oil or eat that separately – it works like soap upon waste and fats in the body. Dry body brushing gently encourages your lymphatics and capillary tone and gets things moving.

But how do you flush your body? How do you stop it from happening again once you succeed?

To order safe, effective and vegan products please head to my page –

Topical cream – SKI-82940

Detox/cleanse – REN-53450

Parasite cleanse – CSR-03600

Body brush – CSR-03600

Make sure you cut down on processed carbs – processed foods in general. Get healthy. Make chronic health issues history by making cellulite history. Eradicating this issue is by no means an easy one – but it really is that ‘simple’.

Medicine is yet to admit that ALL of our health issues, in all their complex forms, are intertwined. We need to think less of diagnoses and more of what our bodies are doing, then act accordingly. Do you have a sedentary lifestyle? Then just get moving! Swim, walk, breathe deeply, stretch and stop slouching. Stop wearing tight clothing as this was proven many years ago to be linked to circulatory damage that leads to lympœdema. I have seen women who were previously size 8 and exotic dancers, end up size 26 because, despite good healthy living habits, their circulation was cut by their clothing, over a long period of time.

Losing weight the right way

This week I had the misfortune yet again of telling a patient that they had just wasted $180 on a weightloss product. Why do people believe that they can eat what they like, live how they like, change a few minor things and take some expensive pill to lose weight?

It wont work!

We’ve all heard about the guy who ate fast food and lost weight. No one remembered that he ended up with heart disease and cancer! We all heard about the friend who lost weight on diet pills – but ask yourself – what is their HEALTH like?

This recent fad of celebrity weightloss pills and even worse, the massive weightloss TV shows where morbidly obese people smash their bodies to pieces in the hope of losing the most kilos/pounds this week. Destroyed joints, overworked hearts, unnecessary loose skin hanging like a skirt, underlying health issues bubbling just under the surface – all for good TV viewing.

I have said it before and I will say it again – never go on a diet with the sole aim of losing weight!

I’ve worked in health for most of my life and have seen appalling after effects of the wrong diets. But I’ve also seen the long term effects of healthy living – usually accompanied with taunts of being ‘health nuts’ or ‘lucky’ because they age so well and avoid all the myriad chronic health issues that the rest of society accepts as unnecessarily normal.

One friend lost a huge amount of weight – and ended up in hospital on life support. Her heart and vital organs could not cope but that didn’t matter – she was getting compliment for the first time in years.

Another patient took legal speed to lose weight and ended up the same way. Massive weight loss, accompanied by the inevitable reduction surgery to remove a few kilos of loose flesh – all unnecessary, and all avoidable if done the right way!

Please see my other posts in this category on the right diet – the only one I recommend is the alkaline diet. Simply put, we can diet all we like – we may even lose some weight – but unless your body is alkaline, you will have inflammation – that means ill health and pain.

I even have my own weightloss supplements – not many mind you, but some do help!

I am often asked why I am so hardnosed on this topic. I am actually no more headstrong than any other health topic. Think about it. Do you love cars? Would you put sugar in your fuel tank? Or sand in the oil? Or spray a can of coke or spray paint inside with the door shut? Yet you put sugar in your body, muck into your system and cover it with toxic chemicals – unlike a car, your body is a living, breathing organism that needs careful and pure balance – it will continue to work, struggle through each day and eventually break down with a screeching, shuddering end. Why?

Maybe your thing is fashion? Would you wash your garments in paint, mud, effluent? What would they look like then? Yet your body is okay so long as you can continue to paint it and cover it up? Underneath is still the same mess!

How many supreme athletes do you know who live a long, healthy life? Not many. And it’s not just because of a ‘hard life’ – I know many who eat what they like because they ‘work it off’ – when I was a child, the average Dad – around 40 to 50 years of age, was willowy and sinewy and without fat. Yet they ate and drank like fish – they ‘earned it’. Those poor guys didn’t end up well. I should know, later on I nursed many of them. Later on, Dads around this age were pudgy with muscles trying to break through the mass. They are aging even worse.

Likewise with women – having children and even being a woman has terrible effects on the health. Weightgain can happen purely by default  too much oestrogen causes all sorts of thickening – around the middle, the neck, abdomen, legs – along with tiredness, depression and eating for comfort.

And then we come to the kids. Just 50 years ago, children ate pure food, home made and largely without heavy fat and carbohydrate loading. Obesity amongst children was rare. Today, obesity is the norm – it’s considered so normal in fact that our average size is 14 – when it used to be 10! Among children, coupled with the computer-age, kids miss out on sunlight and fresh air – that usually correlates to exercise. Many school aged children no longer exercise – and their parents actually find excuses for them to not partake…

If you don’t know the answer yet, you haven’t read my other articles on diet and health. I really did try to avoid having a weight loss category as I find people will go to it rather than anything on pro active health. Don’t expect a miracle. If you like rubbish expect your health to be rubbish. If you are of the habit of saying that you ‘hate’ salad or raw food, look at that plate in front of you – is it stodgy, fatty, bland and covered in enough stuff to give it some flavour? Then expect no miracles in your life!

I am tired of hearing “I need my meat!” You DON’T need anything other than fresh water and pure, fresh plant based foods. Anything else is your own addictions. The only one who ‘needs’ that meat was the creature it came from – not you. You either take health advice or you don’t – but that choice will dictate how your life will end up.

So, what is the answer? It’s been written before in this blog – so get reading. Feel free to print off the advice. Copy the diet plan and stick it. There is NO way you wont lose weight. And no way you wont gain vital health once again.

But it’s up to you.

Is SALT friend or foe?

What if I told you that eating less salt CAUSES heart disease? No doctor will admit those studies were flawed. Not when patients still have heart disease – at a greater rate than when the ‘discovery’ first came about. Not when sales of salt pills and special drinks – and hypertension pills are under threat. The fact is, it is irrefutable that the less salt people eat, “the higher their levels of a substance secreted by the kidneys, called renin, which set off a physiological cascade of events that seemed to end with an increased risk of heart disease. In this scenario: eat less salt, secrete more renin, get heart disease, die prematurely.” And when you have an intake of a beneficial salt – sea, Celtic, Himalayan, not only does your blood balance, your organs work, but you wont need electrolyte therapy which is a side effect of doctors playing around with processed salt… 

 

By GARY TAUBESPublished: June 2, 2012

Oakland, Calif. THE first time I questioned the conventional wisdom on the nature of a healthy diet, I was in my salad days, almost 40 years ago, and the subject was salt. Researchers were claiming that salt supplementation was unnecessary after strenuous exercise, and this advice was being passed on by health reporters. All I knew was that I had played high school football in suburban Maryland, sweating profusely through double sessions in the swamplike 90-degree days of August. Without salt pills, I couldn’t make it through a two-hour practice; I couldn’t walk across the parking lot afterward without cramping.

While sports nutritionists have since come around to recommend that we should indeed replenish salt when we sweat it out in physical activity, the message that we should avoid salt at all other times remains strong. Salt consumption is said to raise blood pressure, cause hypertension and increase the risk of premature death. This is why the Department of Agriculture’s dietary guidelines still consider salt Public Enemy No. 1, coming before fats, sugars and alcohol. It’s why the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has suggested that reducing salt consumption is as critical to long-term health as quitting cigarettes.

And yet, this eat-less-salt argument has been surprisingly controversial — and difficult to defend. Not because the food industry opposes it, but because the actual evidence to support it has always been so weak.

When I spent the better part of a year researching the state of the salt science back in 1998 — already a quarter century into the eat-less-salt recommendations — journal editors and public health administrators were still remarkably candid in their assessment of how flimsy the evidence was implicating salt as the cause of hypertension.

“You can say without any shadow of a doubt,” as I was told then by Drummond Rennie, an editor for The Journal of the American Medical Association, that the authorities pushing the eat-less-salt message had “made a commitment to salt education that goes way beyond the scientific facts. ”While, back then, the evidence merely failed to demonstrate that salt was harmful, the evidence from studies published over the past two years actually suggests that restricting how much salt we eat can increase our likelihood of dying prematurely. Put simply, the possibility has been raised that if we were to eat as little salt as the U.S.D.A. and the C.D.C. recommend, we’d be harming rather than helping ourselves.

WHY have we been told that salt is so deadly? Well, the advice has always sounded reasonable. It has what nutritionists like to call “biological plausibility.” Eat more salt and your body retains water to maintain a stable concentration of sodium in your blood. This is why eating salty food tends to make us thirsty: we drink more; we retain water. The result can be a temporary increase in blood pressure, which will persist until our kidneys eliminate both salt and water.

The scientific question is whether this temporary phenomenon translates to chronic problems: if we eat too much salt for years, does it raise our blood pressure, cause hypertension, then strokes, and then kill us prematurely? It makes sense, but it’s only a hypothesis. The reason scientists do experiments is to find out if hypotheses are true.

In 1972, when the National Institutes of Health introduced the National High Blood Pressure Education Program to help prevent hypertension, no meaningful experiments had yet been done. The best evidence on the connection between salt and hypertension came from two pieces of research. One was the observation that populations that ate little salt had virtually no hypertension. But those populations didn’t eat a lot of things — sugar, for instance — and any one of those could have been the causal factor. The second was a strain of “salt-sensitive” rats that reliably developed hypertension on a high-salt diet. The catch was that “high salt” to these rats was 60 times more than what the average American consumes.

Still, the program was founded to help prevent hypertension, and prevention programs require preventive measures to recommend. Eating less salt seemed to be the only available option at the time, short of losing weight. Although researchers quietly acknowledged that the data were “inconclusive and contradictory” or “inconsistent and contradictory” — two quotes from the cardiologist Jeremiah Stamler, a leading proponent of the eat-less-salt campaign, in 1967 and 1981 — publicly, the link between salt and blood pressure was upgraded from hypothesis to fact.

In the years since, the N.I.H. has spent enormous sums of money on studies to test the hypothesis, and those studies have singularly failed to make the evidence any more conclusive. Instead, the organizations advocating salt restriction today — the U.S.D.A., the Institute of Medicine, the C.D.C. and the N.I.H. — all essentially rely on the results from a 30-day trial of salt, the 2001 DASH-Sodium study. It suggested that eating significantly less salt would modestly lower blood pressure; it said nothing about whether this would reduce hypertension, prevent heart disease or lengthen life.

While influential, that trial was just one of many. When researchers have looked at all the relevant trials and tried to make sense of them, they’ve continued to support Dr. Stamler’s “inconsistent and contradictory” assessment. Last year, two such “meta-analyses” were published by the Cochrane Collaboration, an international nonprofit organization founded to conduct unbiased reviews of medical evidence. The first of the two reviews concluded that cutting back “the amount of salt eaten reduces blood pressure, but there is insufficient evidence to confirm the predicted reductions in people dying prematurely or suffering cardiovascular disease.” The second concluded that “we do not know if low salt diets improve or worsen health outcomes.”

The idea that eating less salt can worsen health outcomes may sound bizarre, but it also has biological plausibility and is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, too. A 1972 paper in The New England Journal of Medicine reported that the less salt people ate, the higher their levels of a substance secreted by the kidneys, called renin, which set off a physiological cascade of events that seemed to end with an increased risk of heart disease. In this scenario: eat less salt, secrete more renin, get heart disease, die prematurely.

With nearly everyone focused on the supposed benefits of salt restriction, little research was done to look at the potential dangers. But four years ago, Italian researchers began publishing the results from a series of clinical trials, all of which reported that, among patients with heart failure, reducing salt consumption increased the risk of death.

Those trials have been followed by a slew of studies suggesting that reducing sodium to anything like what government policy refers to as a “safe upper limit” is likely to do more harm than good. These covered some 100,000 people in more than 30 countries and showed that salt consumption is remarkably stable among populations over time. In the United States, for instance, it has remained constant for the last 50 years, despite 40 years of the eat-less-salt message. The average salt intake in these populations — what could be called the normal salt intake — was one and a half teaspoons a day, almost 50 percent above what federal agencies consider a safe upper limit for healthy Americans under 50, and more than double what the policy advises for those who aren’t so young or healthy. This consistency, between populations and over time, suggests that how much salt we eat is determined by physiological demands, not diet choices.

One could still argue that all these people should reduce their salt intake to prevent hypertension, except for the fact that four of these studies — involving Type 1 diabetics, Type 2 diabetics, healthy Europeans and patients with chronic heart failure — reported that the people eating salt at the lower limit of normal were more likely to have heart disease than those eating smack in the middle of the normal range. Effectively what the 1972 paper would have predicted.

Proponents of the eat-less-salt campaign tend to deal with this contradictory evidence by implying that anyone raising it is a shill for the food industry and doesn’t care about saving lives. An N.I.H. administrator told me back in 1998 that to publicly question the science on salt was to play into the hands of the industry. “As long as there are things in the media that say the salt controversy continues,” he said, “they win.”

When several agencies, including the Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration, held a hearing last November to discuss how to go about getting Americans to eat less salt (as opposed to whether or not we should eat less salt), these proponents argued that the latest reports suggesting damage from lower-salt diets should simply be ignored. Lawrence Appel, an epidemiologist and a co-author of the DASH-Sodium trial, said “there is nothing really new.” According to the cardiologist Graham MacGregor, who has been promoting low-salt diets since the 1980s, the studies were no more than “a minor irritation that causes us a bit of aggravation.”

This attitude that studies that go against prevailing beliefs should be ignored on the basis that, well, they go against prevailing beliefs, has been the norm for the anti-salt campaign for decades. Maybe now the prevailing beliefs should be changed. The British scientist and educator Thomas Huxley, known as Darwin’s bulldog for his advocacy of evolution, may have put it best back in 1860. “My business,” he wrote, “is to teach my aspirations to conform themselves to fact, not to try and make facts harmonize with my aspirations.”

How to fast properly

blog2

Why do you fast?

Pre-baby days, my fasts used to go for between 7 and 14 days. It helped me cast off my old chronically unwell self, gave me energy and charged up my lagging vital organs better than any medicine could do. I often only fast on the occasions that I find myself succumbing to sickness, or when I have a dreaded migraine.

Most would say I live on a fast most days because I don’t eat regular food and live mostly on raw juice and superfoods. But I like the feeling of being hungry, of knowing my body is having a break.

Personally, I just struggle with the knowledge that 25000 people die around the world every day of starvation, while in the west and other wealthy nations are killing themselves with gluttony. I don’t want to be part of that. Or take part in the little game that is killing our environment – 70% of our crops are fed to the billions of meat-animals that only feed 30% of the worlds’ people.

How does that even make sense?

How many members of this group actively fast? It was the first thing I learned when moving from orthodox medicine to alternatives. It is just about the best thing you can do for your health, especially if you are chronically unwell or overweight.

Many churches do it for spiritual reasons – and it increases our spiritual strength in ways that you could not know until you try it. And then my brain screams – why undo all the good you body and soul has gone though, by feasting on rubbish to break the fast? If you are honest with yourself, once you have overcome the greed of gluttony, ask your body how it feels? Are you now filled up with fear and suffering hormones? Do your hands and feet hurt? Your joints? Your stomach? Headaches? Get in touch with your body as you get in touch with your spirit and you will begin to understand.

So, what is the best way to fast? Dry fasting should be avoided at all cost – you are starving not only your blood, but your organs, (including brain) and cells. If you feel thirsty, your body is already dehydrated because a survival mechanism ensures our brains can survive long after the rest of the body is screaming out for life-giving water.

No matter what your medical doctors or nutritionists say, you will most likely be able to not only survive, but thrive on a water or juice fast. The only issue will be your hunger and how addicted you are to that hunger. Believe it or not, there are supplements that can naturally get rid of that appetite – really good tonics and supplements which remove your appetite, making you feel as if you are full 24/7. Tonics that keep you alkaline will provide necessary nutrients (often more than the average diet provides anyway), so you will not be starving.

Even diabetics can fast – slowly and with awareness – it just means that they no longer become slaves to insulin – by using colloidal minerals – order here – your body is doing things it usually does not, and your insulin needs will lessen with time. Diabetics are taught medically to eat gluten-laden, high carb snacks to ‘balance’ their blood sugar when in reality it is tricking the body to keep depending on that synthetic lifeline – you have carb peaks and lows just because you think you need to have that carb snack to keep your BSL UP! At the very least, nightly fasts are seriously beneficial – no food from 7pm to 7am, removing all non-alkaline food, and drinking alkaline water rather than carbohydrate-controlled diets which, along with pancreatic destroying ‘diet’ drinks, will free you from your fate. That’s right – ‘diet’ drinks and foods – those with nutrasweet – are killing your pancreas.

Fasting is a bonus method of ridding the body of parasites – which not only rob us of life, but are linked to many, if not most, chronic illnesses – and more than a few acute ones. You should also be sure to take a clove/walnut/wormwood/coconut oil based anti-parasitic to not just flush them but destroy them, and never just think they will disappear because they are unwelcome. Some of the parasitic infestations I have seen in humans make movies like Alien look like Playschool – and age, intellect, cleanliness and even diet often make no difference. Flushing with increased water consumption and enemas will help speed the process up – the benefits to your health will astound you.

I will not gross up this post any more than need be, but I urge you to google parasites, worms and other alien pathogens that can affect humans. Some have mutated DNA, others are the end result of botched up science. Sometimes removing parasites can remove abnormal appetites. Other times it can end chronic or even terminal ill health. And most definitely help in stubborn weight loss. And yes, parasites are mentioned numerous times in the Bible, plus anti-parasitic herbs are mentioned often.

Anyway, who wants to join me in the fast? I recommend praying beforehand – for me, I can pray for freedom from hunger and addiction and snap! My appetite is gone until I actively make it return. Okay, so I have been at it for a long time, but I was only in my teens when I began fasting – just before I was 16. Preparation is important, so you don’t fall back. If you live alone or with ppl who want to support you, it is easier. For parents or people who are around food all day, it is a little harder but can be done. Some of my best fasts were done working in a fast food joint during college years.

Drink a lot of water, and if you want, raw vegetable juice. Avoid acidic fruits – apart from citrus and berries because these are alkalising, and have many benefits otherwise.  Coffee enemas are magic – truly. Many pharmacies no longer sell enema kits since our medical authorities decided they have no place in health care – I guess too many medications were being shown up. You can buy online, and some pharmacies still sell small saline enema bottles which can be washed and reused. Coffee’s benefits are often touted as an excuse for people to drink up. But the truth is, the benefits are usually only courtesy of topical or rectal application. It shocks the liver and forces the blood, kidneys, liver and bowel to release toxic build up that just can’t be reached any other way. Google Fleet Enema – washable and reusable.

Bicarb is another magical aid. I take it daily regardless, but for those who have constipation problems (from what ppl tell me, it seems to be a normal thing today). A flat teaspoon in warm water – tastes gross but you actually get used to it as you alkalise.  First thing in the morning and last thing at night. Get ready for a mighty clean out! Sip lemon juice, warm or cold, all day, don’t let yourself get thirsty because with that, comes hunger. If you really struggle there are little known beneficial herbal combinations – a little guar gum mixed with slippery elm in half a cup of warm water – this puffs up and lines your stomach and intestines, making you feel full and removing irritations, especially of IBS. Herbal teas such as fennel and parsley, not only remove extra fluid but also make you feel full.

Taking a clay drink every day – order here – will not only help detox but stave your appetite. Increasing the benefits like removing parasites (don’t be shy, we all have parasites and no, they are not necessarily beneficial – in fact, many are linked to weight issues, cancers and many other health issues we are told to take as part of life. A strong anti-parasitic is recommended as we ALL are affected negatively by unwanted parasites – order here ….

Anyway, there is more on fasting further down in these articles. Expect a few things on your fast – first, hunger. That goes without saying because from birth, we have food shoved in our mouths as soon as we make a peep. And as we grow, we never give our bodies so much as a break of a few hours. Then, you will get a detox headache – especially if you drink a lot of coffee or coke. It is only temporary but I am not a sadist – if you need to take pain relief, take it – but try everything else first – a shower or bath, feverfew or white willowbark, peppermint oil on the temples, Microvita or Brauer pain cream – there are many non-drug options.

It must be said, this post is NOT for people who suffer from anorexia. I do not recommend fasting purely for body image or emotional issues. Please see someone if you fall into this category. And if you have a chronic health issue that has resulted in dramatic weightloss, please also do not attempt it. For example, my daughter suffered for 3 years from chronic fatigue syndrome which almost claimed her life. Without any sound medical support and with almost constant criticism from family and friends, we had to muddle along until we found the answer. I would never have put her on a fast – in fact, her weight dropped to 39kgs and she ate more than any man I know.

She just could not gain weight. It was only when she began eating alkaline food that she got to an impressive weight of 52kgs and no longer has either CFS or a weight issue. Of course, the CFS is never far away and she knows if she slips up, it is still snapping at her heels. But that is the same with any acidic or invisible condition.

If you stay at it, you will notice that you will be sorely tested – any current or previous medical issues will raise their ugly heads – often quite severely. Don’t panic. All that is happening is that your body is removing the acidic buildup that caused them in the first place. I have seen terminal and chronic health issues just by a good fast. If you don’t give in, chances are that health issue will be long gone. True story.

By day 3, if you have not weakened and hit hump day, it will be your worst. I find I reach it by day 2 these days, but that’s only because I only eat when hungry out of habit – I don’t stick to regular meal times anyway. By day 4, you really wont care for food – it becomes easier. Of course, there are exceptions – especially if you are so acidic that you are bed ridden with a chronic disorder. That is when you take herbs, homoeopathy, supplements, acupuncture, massage – anything to hurry up the healing.

I personally like 21 day fasts but these are difficult unless under the watchful eye of experts at a health retreat with expert supervision. Or join forces with other likeminded friends and encourage each other through it. This is where it gets tricky because after this time you actually go into starvation mode and do not want food – ever again. 14 day fasts are very beneficial and often can kick start a major health change. 7 day fasts are also brilliant and if you end them by simply staying on a juice fast (raw juice, not bottled), you will only enhance the benefits. Most people will only fast for 2 or 3 days. These are nothing to be sneezed at – in fact, they are the best way to start a health kick.

People who fast during the day and break it at night are doing little for their health. And breaking a fast with junk only injects massive amounts of rubbish into your blood, in increased concentrations.

Science has proven lower calorie diets (no, not diet food – fresh and raw food) give you the best chance at health and longevity. After all, who wants to be old and frail, what is the point in that – which is all medicine is aiming for, the number stats. I’d rather die young than live to be old and chronically unwell. Google old people who live on rawfood diets – it’s astounding.

And fasting is the best way to kick start it – or give your body a charge up. So, who’s with me?

Does sugar form fat and disease?

This article is one of Robert Young’s latest. I’d like to add that it merely addresses what we are told by health experts to be healthy. To this list, you can add the obvious – including ‘diet’ drinks which contain an acid called aspartame, which is linked to seizures, MS and diabetes, amongst other things.

Sugar is a Disease Causing Acid

Sugar is a dietary and/or a metabolic acid waste product of fermentation or the degeneration of matter. It is important to understand that the body, and even the brain runs on electrons NOT sugar. Sugar in all of its forms is a poisonous waste product. So the more you ingest from your diet the higher your risk for disease. Here are several foods that should never be eaten.

1) Yogurt – Yogurt is a concentrated acid full of lactose sugars that break down to the cancer causing lactic acid. Sugar content in yogurts can be very high, however, as Keri Glassman, R.D. told the Early Show that yogurt naturally has about 12 grams of sugar per 6 ounce serving. The fruit flavoured yogurts that most people eat actually have about 32 grams of sugar. 

2) Granola bars – Granola bars have always seemed like a solid pick for some people, but they are packed full of added sugars, and depending on the brand and size, you could be looking at between 11 and 22 grams of debilitating sugar acid.

3) Fat Free Salad Dressing – Consumers are so conditioned to thinking that fat free products were good for them (no fat, right?) that they may have overlooked the fact that companies pump acid sugar into fat free dressings to give them some taste. They also do this so you become addicted to their brand of disease causing acid salad dressing. Check the labels and do some comparison shopping to find dressings with healthy fat (not fat free) and NO acid sugar.

4) Muffins – When you break muffins down to their lowest common denominator, you’re really looking at a chunk of acid cake that you’re eating for breakfast. And don’t be fooled into thinking that bran muffins are healthier, because they’re usually loaded with acid sugar, too. You’re better off skipping muffins entirely or should I say you are better off skipping the acid. You might fry your brain.

5) Canned Fruit – This one seems a little sneaky because you think that because it’s fruit, it’s healthy, but a lot of canned fruit is packed in a acidic sugary syrup. Even light syrup can stack up 32 grams of acid sugar per cup serving! Give up on canned or even fresh high acidic fruit and choose a low sugar fruit like cucumber or avocado. You will feel energized without being high on acid or sugar.

6) Cereal – We all know about those sugary acidic cereals on the shelves, but even some of the so-called healthier options may reveal a load of ACID sugar when you closely inspect the nutrition info. There is not such a thing as a healthy cereal – full of the acid maltose. Another disease causing sugar.

****************************************************************

For years health experts and nutritionists have been telling us that sugar is vital for a healthy, balanced diet. This is just not true. Please see my other posts on diet for more information.
