COLON CLEANSE 101

COLON CLEANSE 101

Cleanse Your Colon 

The goal of colon cleansing is to remove waste, toxicity, and congestion from the bowel. One of the most frequent bowel problems that people experience in the U.S. is constipation. A constipated intestinal tract means the transition time of toxic wastes is slow. The longer the transit time, the longer the toxic waste matter sits in the bowel where it can putrefy, ferment, and get reabsorbed. The longer your body is exposed to putrefying food in your intestines, the greater the risk of developing disease. Even with one bowel movement per day, you will still have one or two other meals worth of waste matter sitting in your colon at all times. Disease often begins with a toxic bowel. Those having fewer bowel movements are creating fertile breeding ground for parasites, yeast like Candida albicans and other unfavorable bacteria. Infrequent or poor quality bowel movements over an extended period of time may be hazardous to your health.

TOXIC LIVER?

Do you have a toxic liver?

The liver holds a key to efficient metabolism, weight control, bowel health, and detoxification. The liver is the major fat-burning organ in the body. Cleansing your liver can greatly improve weight loss and energy. When you regularly consume sweets and other processed carbohydrates, junk food, and other unhealthy foods and beverages, your liver converts these calories mostly to fat and stores it. Though not common, fat can build up in the liver, which can lead “fatty liver”.  When this happens, something has gone wrong in the process of metabolism. It is known that fat accumulates in the liver with a number of conditions, the most common being obesity. Fatty liver is also associated with diabetes mellitus, high triglycerides, and heavy use of alcohol.

pH BALANCED?

pH BALANCED?

Are You Too Acidic?

The acidity or alkalinity of foods can be classified by how we process them. Our bodies transform nearly all foods we eat into acid or alkaline bases. Though we need a balance of different foods for good health, most people eat far more acid-producing foods than alkaline-forming foods. Too many acid-producing substances cause a chronic condition called acidosis, which means the body has become too acidic. Additionally, acid is produced in the body whenever we experience stress or strong emotions such as anger or fear. As you can see, the typical Western diet and lifestyle moves us in the opposite direction of optimal health. Cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment.  They do not do as well in a slightly alkaline body.

Diabetes Healing Juice Cocktail 

A study by the USDA showed that people who consumed 2 1/2 cups of wild blueberry juice per day for 12 weeks lowered their blood glucose levels, lifted depression, and improved their memories. Researchers credit these results to anthocyanins in the berries, a natural chemical that shrinks fat cells and also stimulates the release of adiponectin, a hormone that regulates blood glucose levels, among other things. Increasing adiponectin levels can help keep blood sugar low and increase our sensitivity to insulin.

Can You Juice If You Are Diabetic?

I continue to hear people say that their doctor told them they could not juice because they have diabetes.  Many people think juice is synonymous with fruit juice.  Fruit juice is not what I recommend people juice, and especially anyone with diabetes or other sugar metabolism problems, with the exception of berries and lemon and lime.  You can add lemon and lime to any vegetable juice combination for flavor.
