Are you ready for a healthier life? I think that everyone is. The problem is maintaining new healthy habits.
The challenge is making those healthy habits permanent lifestyle changes.
When I recovered from aspartame poisoning in 1991, I made some serious lifestyle changes. The neat thing about my recovery is that I maintained my recovery program – I’m still going strong nearly 30 years later.
Think about it. I have been taking my vitamins and detoxing for 30 years. I’ve also maintained a positive attitude.
It has been well worth it.
How To Maintain Your Health
When I was misdiagnosed with an incurable case of Grave’s disease, I searched for solutions outside of my doctor’s office.
I’m not advising anyone to ignore their doctor’s advice, but I firmly believe that people need to participate in their healing by educating themselves on why they are sick, and by learning about the many alternative ways you can help your body stay well.
I went on a search for what caused my disease, and once I discovered that it was aspartame in my diet colas, I removed the cause (aspartame) and I detoxed.
Once I detoxed, I healed.
Once I healed, I didn’t stop detoxing.
Then I wrote my 10-Steps To Detoxification ebook and created my educational Detox video program to teach others that they can do this, too.
Every step in my detox program is important to follow, but where you go from here is really important because your success is up to your dedication to adopt a nutritional program into your lifestyle.
Focus on the belief that you CAN heal your body. If you don’t believe that you will succeed, then you won’t.
Eat to Live – Don’t Live to Eat
From Chapter 14 10 Steps To Detoxification
When did we start accepting chemical diets as a lifestyle? When did humans change their mindset to “living to eat?”
The industrialization of food and mass-nourishment has blindly lead modern humans down a lazy and dangerous path. It’s an understatement to say nutrition today is not what it used to be. Modern societies have deviated from a natural relationship with their food (and their environments), contributing to, if not causing, a marked increase in modern degenerative diseases.
Fundamental nutritional knowledge has gotten lost amid modern, high-tech lifestyles. Take the time to determine where you got off the health track and what toxins you have been exposed to along the way.
A well-balanced diet is critical for all human beings, and it is important to know not only your own personal needs, but the correct preparation of whole foods, how not to overeat, how to choose high-quality foods, how to avoid unnatural food combinations, and the art of “selecting” the broad range of nutritious foods including: chlorophyll-rich plants, the best sources of certain fatty acids, and the dangers of food chemicals like aspartame, sucralose, pesticides, preservatives, food colorings, etc.
When a good attitude and sufficient exercise are combined with a balanced and disciplined diet, you are on a natural path to good health. Remember that we eat to live; we do not live to eat. Get back to the basics of eating, and recognize your individuality in relation to nutrition.
My Nutritional Recommendations
Experiencing Grave’s Disease showed me that I was unaware of what my lifestyle was doing to my health, both mentally and physically. During my “natural recovery,” I discovered that healing from an illness was like putting pieces of a puzzle together, one-by-one.
All the pieces are different components that create healing:
1. Identify the cause of disease;
2. Remove that cause;
3. Restore depleted nutrients.
Cleansing toxic chemicals from your body means more than flushing your colon.
Cleansing effectively removes toxins from every cell of your body – from head to toe. Your body is constantly involved in cleansing itself — the lungs, the skin, your kidneys, your liver — all participate in eliminating toxins when given the right tools through food and supplements.
Toxins activate certain natural enzymes in your body. Many enzymes transform foreign contaminants into water-soluble substances that your body can typically get rid of on its own.
Drinking lots of water and sweating during exercise helps eliminate toxins, too. But, if the toxic load gets high enough to saturate your fatty tissues, toxins can deposit in your body organs and inside of your brain.
Over time, contamination inside of your body can accumulate, building a residue like “sludge.” Biologists see this same type of toxic build-up along riverbeds and shorelines, but you may not “see” it inside of your body until it begins to “seep” out through your skin after it accumulates, many times forming a tumor, clogging your arteries, or impacting elimination.
Decades ago, scientists began connecting the accumulation of aspartame to the adverse effects in the brain that we see “diagnosed today” as MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and Grave’s Disease.
This toxic build-up blocks oxygen flow and inhibits the ability of nutrients to reach your cells. Due to their inability to absorb oxygen and nourishment, the cells can mutate, becoming susceptible to cancer and other diseases.
So, identify the cause(s) of your health concerns, detox, and restore needed nutrients. Then, stick with your program to secure long term health as a lifestyle.
