It is January of the new year, millions of people, almost 40% of Americans, set New Years resolutions. Some statistics state that about 38% of those resolutions are to lose weight.

One of those reasons is that for people to lose weight, they need a plan. I HAVE YOUR PLAN! Here is your New Year’s resolution solution! It is written out in my                 day-by-day detailed program Full Body 30 Day Vegan Cleanse.

Going Through the Holidays Healthy

I love the holiday season! I love that we get to spend more time with friends and family. I love how people are in really happy
Of course, with this time of year, food and drink are a big part of almost every celebration you will attend.
It is very possible to stay healthy through this time of year. One of the best things you can do to help yourself is drink a lot of water. I usually tell my patients to drink 3 liters of water/day. It’s a great goal going into the new year. When the weather gets colder and people contract bacterial and viral infections, these are the infections that so easily spread through an office or a family. If you can increase your water intake to 3 liters a day, it will make a very big difference. When you are drinking a lot of water, it continues to flush out your mucous membranes. So, your sinuses, and throat and even your lungs benefit by all that water by making it harder place for bacteria and viruses to live. If your mucous membranes don’t get flushed as much and your diet causes a sticky film to coat them then it is a much easier place for organisms to cling to and breed. And make you sick.

You can go through the holidays healthy by making the right choices in taking care of yourself. Full Body 30 Day Vegan Cleanse can help you to make those right (36)photo (36)

Your Best Anti-Aging Solution

full body scanWe spend billions on anti-aging products. We are spending so  much on products to help us retain our youth that it is projected that by 2015 we will have spent more than $291 billion for products to help us in this quest. The Fountain of Youth has been a popular quest for centuries, but we are the first generation to actually have available to us, products and knowledge assisting us in our quest.

Our Generation Demands More for Ourselves

Its great that our generation wants to continue to feel good and look great. It says a lot about who we are now.  It seems that collectively we all want a better quality of life for ourselves for the duration. Clearly we are not willing to settle for the aging process without putting up a good fight- and lots of money! We all want the best anti-aging solution we can get.

We get to put up this good fight because there is much more knowledge of how the human body operates and how our foods and our lifestyle effect us. We know more now about taking very good care of ourselves. This then allows us to be in this very new place of being able to take steps toward retaining our youth. There is a lot of progress amongst the human race that has allowed us to come to this place. I think its important to acknowledge that.

Sorting Through all the Information

With so  much information out there, what is your best anti-aging solution? Very simply, it is taking very good care of yourself. There is no new and improved way to “take good care of yourself”. It is simply, get good quality sleep, keep stress as low as possible, don’t smoke, exercise 5 times a week, drink at least 8 – 8 ounce glasses of water daily and eat a very healthy diet that is predominately vegetables.

Your Diet is Your Best Anti-Aging Solution

Everything you eat has a direct effect in your body. And, since we all have to eat to stay alive, why not eat foods that will help you go through life feeling great and keep your body and brain as youthful as possible. The foods that will keep you healthy are the same foods that will keep you youthful because according to all the studies, it looks like a very healthy diet and exercise will help you avoid the most prevalent chronic diseases. These chronic diseases take their toll on your body, changing the cells, and the organs including the brain. These changes increase aging.

Aging Gracefully

Your best anti-aging solution is to eat a diet filled with foods that  are are packed with anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants are what scavenge up the free radicals that create damage to cells. Numerous studies have shown that the people who eat several servings of fruits and vegetables each day, usually have lower prevalence of cancer. It is thought that some cancers develop as a result of free radicals. Free radicals have detrimental effects to the skin, immune system, liver, kidneys, and brain. All of the foods eaten during Full Body Vegan Cleanse are tremendously helpful to your skin, immune system, liver, kidneys and brain.

You can learn more about how you can eat a diet rich in anti-oxidant foods.


A Plan for your Anti-Aging

Full Body 30 Day Vegan Cleanse could be your plan for anti-aging. Why? Because all the foods that you will be eating in this program are ONLY helpful to your body. The  foods you eat while on this program, All of the foods, are foods that will not produce large amounts of free-radicals. This is because they are natural and easily utilized by your body.

Plan to Be Healthy! You Can do it!

Being healthy doesn’t “just happen” it takes a commitment, which means thought and then action. As noted in an earlier post, if you schedule your workouts, if you put them in your appointment calendar, you will get your workouts done. The same holds true with your meals though. Plan your meals. Don’t just go out the door in the morning without a clear picture of what you will be eating during that day.

You know you will need lunch, you know you will need dinner. Many people leave it up to their co-workers to decide where they will be eating. If you have to eat lunch and/or dinner out, why don’t you suggest the restaurant and already have in mind the healthy foods they offer. In fact, most restaurants have their menus online, so while you are in the mindset of committing to a healthy lifestyle, look at their menu ahead of time and decide what would be the best choice for you.

You might find that you are even inspiring your friends and co-workers and they too might start ordering those same items.

Choose Health – Option 1: Full Body 30 Day Vegan Cleanse

full body scan

When it comes to taking care of your body, your health, you have 2 options. Option 1: take great care of your body and you will live your life in health as you get older. Or, Option 2: don’t put any time and thought into taking care of your body, and you will have multiple diseases the older you get.
I am not interested in Option 2! I do not want to battle, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or stroke. I do not want to battle everyday feeling like absolute crud! That is not how I want to live my life. It is also very important to me that I raise my boys in a healthy way and teach them the best way for them to take care of themselves for their future.

I choose Option 1. I actually chose this option even when I was 14 years old. I wouldn’t take an anti biotic if my Mom took me to the doctor for a little cold. I knew that my body was going to get rid of that little cold. Also at age 14, I became a vegetarian. Then at 27 years old I enrolled in acupuncture college. Knowing there was so much more about the human body that could be learned than just what the Western medical model was teaching. I wanted to help people get healthy.

Option 2 comes with years of taking pharmaceutical medications. All of which have side effects and are the catalyst for elderly people needing a second, third, fourth, etc medication to address the problems created by the first medication.
Option 2 comes with years of living a very unpleasant quality of life. You might be completely unaware of the details of what life lived un-healthfully is like. The complete effect of how your life is effected everyday. Or, the expense involved. But, ask co-workers, and friends with older parents. Or talk to someone with diabetes. Or talk to someone with heart disease. Or talk to someone with high blood pressure and ask them what the side effects are from the medication they are taking that controls their blood pressure.

I want to be that 80 year old that is still working out at the park. Still taking yoga classes. Still is traveling happily to great places in this world!
And I already know, my kids are counting on it!

Live in Grace

Consistency is Key

blog cleanse herbsConsistency is the key. Being consistent for a period of time is how to get results. And that is exactly why I created my program as a 30 day vegan cleanse. Over the 30 days by eating the foods listed in the program and taking the herbal formulas that I designed specifically for this cleanse, you will get changes to your health. Changes even down to the cellular level. A 2 day cleanse won’t make changes at the cellular level. Even a 21 day cleanse will not make deep enough changes that will last.
Full  Body 39 Day Vegan Cleanse will make changes that you will see and changes that you will feel. Like it has done for everyone that has done this Cleanse.
Consistency is the key. My program teaches you how you can be consistent and therefore successful. And that is how you will get the healthy results you are looking for.

How do You get Your Edge?

blog pix 2The Edge…everybody is always looking for an Edge. Something that will give them an advantage over their competition. Something that will make them feel better, perform better. Most people drink coffee for that Edge.

Ryan Braun found his Edge with performance enhancing drugs, PED’s. Lance Armstrong, of whom I was a huge fan and supporter, also wanted an Edge. He too used PED’s. It was a huge let down. It was also very costly for both athletes.

I’ve got the Edge you are looking for. My Full Body 30 Day Vegan Cleanse will give you that Edge. Which is exactly why most of the people who have already done this program have repeated it a second, third and even fourth time. They love how they felt while they were on it. They loved how much energy they had. They loved the improvement in mental sharpness.. They loved the weight loss.

You don’t need over the counter meds to feel good. You just need to eat better. If you feed your body food that will only do good things to your body -you will function at your potential.

Are you ready to get your Edge?


Healthy Parenting Part 2

photo (19)This is the second post I am writing with regards to parenting and food. I hope you had a chance to read the first post I wrote directly on healthy parenting. It has a number of very important details about how the body is adversely effected by fast foods. I am continuing here because there really is so much that all people should know about fast foods and how harmful they are to our body.

In my posts from this point on, I will be referring to fast food as “Fat food”. Because that is what it is and that is what it does.

Love your kids enough to give them healthy meals all the time.

It is truly a shame that 1 in every 3 kids today is obese. There were never this many obese kids decades ago. It is very sad to see. It is also very hard for them because they have challenges to deal with that young kids shouldn’t have.  Concurrent with the obesity epidemic in youth is the incredible rise in diabetes.

Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases among children in the United States. There are about 215,000, or 0.26%, of all people younger than 20 years old who have diabetes. These is 1 out of about every 400 kids and adolescents- with type 2 diabetes. A disease that never used to effect kids, only adults when they were older. Until 10 years ago, type 2 diabetes accounted for less than 3% of all cases of new-onset diabetes in adolescents. Currently, 45% of cases are attributed to type type 2 diabetes in adolescents. That is stark!

The epidemic did not just appear suddenly. This epidemic was been in process for 50-60 years even. What is new about it though, is that never before in human history have human beings collectively experienced such a dramatic and heartbreaking reality.

“Fat food”  consumption during the last 50-60 years has escalated dramatically. In fact, the rise in Fat food consumption is parallel to the rise in obesity, From the early 1970’s when there were approximately 30,000 Fat food locations, to 1980 when there were 140,000 locations. Just that increase in Fat food restaurants is amazing!!! Scarier still is that in that same time frame the sales of Fat food rose about 300%!

Fat foods are loaded with more calories than a kid should be eating at one meal. (The fact is even adults are consuming more calories in 1 Fat food meal than they should consume too.)
Fat foods all give kids a very large does of trans fats. Trans fats eaten on a regular basis will lead to high cholesterol, being over weight, and even diabetes.

Fat foods also have a lot of added sugar. The un-necessary added sugar does of course contribute to weight gain. Sugar will effect a teenagers mood. The increased sugar will effect their skin, many teens already have acne and sugar will absolutely increase that. The sugar from the Fat food meals along with other sugars in their diet can of course be a path to diabetes.

The bigger picture here is, how are kids learning to eat these days? How are they learning to take care of themselves for their future…?
