Steps to LIVE THE NATURAL LIFE TM
Eat All Natural Foods including fresh
fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts, seeds, fiber rich whole grains,
and legumes (alfalfa, clover, peas, beans, lentils). Try
to incorporate five to six servings of fruits and vegetables a
day! One simple way to have two to three servings first
thing in the morning is to make an all natural smoothie for
breakfast - you can even do most of the preparation the evening
before if your morning schedule is tight (view
recipes and directions)! Please note that its recommended by
many doctors that you add protein to all meals to balance the
release of insulin by the pancreas to aid in the digestion of
sugars. Please note that adding good fats to the meal will
also slow the digestion of sugars. Therefore you may want to
consider adding a few nuts and or a teaspoon of flax seed oil or
other good oil that is not readily a part of your existing diet. Remove all processed and fast foods
from your diet, or at least as many as possible!
Drink plenty of water each day (8 or more 8 oz servings per
day)! For added health benefits add a slice of fresh
lemon to your water! Fresh lemon water helps your organs
to release toxins, improves your pH level, and helps to eliminate growing
As you Live the Natural Life you
will find many examples in which doctors can only treat the
problem once it occurs, while nature has provided you many
simple and often pleasurable ways to prevent these problems
from occurring in the first place. Lemon water is a great
example! Kidney stones are the formation of crystal like
substances inside the kidney, often calcium based. The
only way to prevent or naturally breakdown kidney stones is
to drink lemon water. The acid in the lemons helps to
breakdown the crystal formation while the water helps to flush the broken down crystal out of your body!
Focus on PH Balance!
According to Susan Lark, M.D., "Paying attention to
acid-alkaline balance (or pH Balance) is one of the most crucial
ways you can affect your health status. It impacts immunity,
digestion, bone strength, symptoms of joint disease, hormones,
and the function of essential internal organs."
Avoid soft drinks, carbonated water and excessive amounts of
alcohol! When choosing to drink alcohol try to make the
healthiest choice possible! Replace liquor and beer with
wine, particularly red wine!
When having sugar
cravings eat healthy sugars! Fruit is always a good
alternative when you have a sweet craving. When using sugar in your diet replace white
bleached sugar with raw unfiltered honey or sugar from organic
sugar cane. When craving chocolate choose dark chocolate
with a high percentage cocoa (70-90%) and avoid milk chocolate.
Use all natural skin care products! Avoid feeding your
body toxins not only internally but also externally!
Help to return your body to optimum
We recommend using Oxy-Powder®
for a complete colon, gallbladder and liver cleanse,
eliminating years of waste build up currently in your body!
We also recommend taking the Miracle II
Neutralizer on a
daily basis to help with both detoxification and pH balance! You may also choose
to repeat the more intense detoxification process periodically to help eliminate waste build-up
naturally occurring as your body continues to metabolize
potentially toxic material ingested on a
changes into your life as gradually as you need!
Remember that each step you take in a positive direction, no matter
how big or small, places you in a better position today than
yesterday! While very important, these changes don't need to
occur all at once - and to be honest making too many changes at once
is often times the reason that none of the changes become a
permanent part of our lives. If you choose to eliminate your
soda intake, eliminate them for as long as possible and when the
craving becomes great enough have one to reward yourself and then
cut them out again. Over time you will likely eliminate the
craving and it will be much less of a fight to incorporate this positive
change into your life!
Also note that your taste
buds change in as few as 21 days! Therefore, if your replacing
foods with negative attributes with foods with positive attributes
and this leaves your taste buds unsatisfied - try it for 21 days and you may
just find that you prefer the foods that are better for you.
As an example, I switched from milk chocolate to dark chocolate with
up to 80% cocoa content (which actually has some great health
benefits). Initially, dark chocolate tasted somewhat bitter,
however, after a couple of weeks I no longer tasted a bitter taste
in the dark chocolate. Not only that, when tasting milk
chocolate again I tasted too much sugar and the product tasted
unnatural! Now I don't have to make a change - my
body's cravings and desires have changed and I can fill each
craving! In his book "Breaking the Food Seduction"
taste expert Neal D. Barnard, M.D. explains that our taste buds have
a memory of approximately 21 days and when making changes in food
choices we simply need to give our taste buds time to readjust!
