The holidays are over. I am seven pounds heavier… thanks to all the chocolates, fruitcake, sweets, ham, turkey… all the extra consumption of what I know is not healthy but I couldn’t help myself! It is time to get back on track with healthy eating and exercise. As I write this, I feel lethargic – the effect of all the sugar creating havoc through my nervous system!
Different sources of research indicates that almost all illnesses start with the gut/digestive system/ colon. Even the pimples that burst on our skin is a sign that the digestive system is not able to eliminate the toxins – so the toxins get eliminated through the skin. I can relate to this because I have suffered with acne/pimples for most of my life and it has left so many scars on my face.
In all the research I have done on diets and foods, this documentary by Dr. Terry Walhs is the best I have seen in helping to educate the public about the foods we consume. She is a medical doctor and who suffered for a decade with multiple sclerosis which left her bed ridden for a full decade. Her video shows how she regained her full health to walking by changing her diet. Please watch this video – it is life changing!
This caused me to become more conscious about what I eat and to protect my mitochondria which is the key to healing. Last year I faced a health crisis and spent almost a full year in physiotherapy to the point where I simply got frustrated not making significant progress. Interestingly, after a month of increasing my vegetable consumption to 9 cups a day, I noticed lots of beneficial changes in my body. I had more energy, greater clarity, less irritation and the dark circles under my eyes disappeared! Best of all, my digestive track felt great. I felt lighter! The most surprising of all results was that the pain in body disappeared – I have not been back for another physiotherapy session! It felt that my body healed itself!
Along with Dr. Terry’s recommendations, I studied the book “The Beauty DETOX Foods” by Kimberly Snyder. It provides great explanations about how to detoxify your body and bring out beautiful hair, beautiful skin, beautiful eyes, a beautiful body and your inner glow. What a transformation my body went through!
Here is my morning routine:
The protein in the kale (kale is power food by the way) digest well with the fruits BUT NOT with starchy vegetables. I have learnt that eating fruit on an empty stomach is the best way to to help our body absorb minerals, vitamins/nutrients.
