Cleanse and Detoxify
Chances are that some of these damaging pests are residing in your body – feeding off the food you eat or even your body’s own blood and tissues. Recent medical studies indicate that up to 85% of North Americans are probably carrying one or more types of parasites in their bodies yet most people are completely unaware of their existence.
The presence of parasites in the human body may produce many symptoms -symptoms that many of us attribute to stress, poor health, or just part of “getting older”
Some Potential Indications of Parasite Infection:
- Constipation • Joint & muscle aches • Flu like symptoms • Chronic fatigue • Skin problems • Sugar cravings • Sleep disturbance • Bloated abdomen • Grinding teeth at night • Heartburn • Unexplained weight gain or loss • Dry lips during the day • Drooling at night • Itchy anus • Numb hands or feet • Constant hunger pangs • Blurry and unclear vision • Allergies • Restlessness • Snoring • Intestinal gas
Unfortunately, medical testing procedures are only available for a few types of parasites. Up to 95% of parasites are not tested for, and therefore can go undetected in the body of the unsuspecting victim for many years.
The average person who is neither overweight nor particularly toxic is carrying around 7-25 Ibs. of dried fecal matter at any given moment. In a nutshell, whether you are conscious of it or not, you are probably full of colon and intestinal toxicity. Doesn’t it make sense, if you would like to lose weight with a minimum of effort and a maximum degree of permanence, that you would want to get rid of all those extra pounds trapped in your digestive and colon track?
More importantly, the colon and the bodies systems are closely connected. It is not possible to have an optimally functioning body unless colon toxicity has been addressed. It is rather like trying to flush a stopped toilet – where is it supposed to go?
Restore and Protect
Over the past decade, extensive research has been done on the subject of free radical pathology and many reputable scientists and medical doctors believe that free radical pathology is at the root of immune system disorders, cancer, heart disease, and a long list of degenerative diseases including aging. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules, which contain unpaired electrons and can cause damage to the body. Their harmful effects can be offset by antioxidants; vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Free radicals came from radiation, hydrocarbons, automobile exhausts, cigarette smoke, prescription and over the counter drugs, pesticides, herbicides, food additives, industrial waste products and many other sources. All of this necessitates even greater protection by using antioxidant nutrients like beta carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E and grape seed extract.
The quality of our food, now grown in mineral depleted soils, is not what the agribusiness people would have us believe it is. Studies indicate that our daily vitamin and mineral needs are not met by food alone. Countless leading nutritional researchers have found that up to 80% of a food’s value is lost through processing, transportation, freezing, storage, cooking, spraying and chemical additives. To get the same amount of vitamins and minerals that our grandparents did -in the early
part of the twentieth century from food alone- you would have to consume six large meals a day. Since this would overload you with calories, it is far better to take vitamins and mineral supplements. Some have argued that one of the reasons for the epidemic of obesity, fatigue and mental illness today is that our population is micro-nutritionally deficient. For those who want a safe and effective way of optimizing health, preventing illness, and living longer, hole food supplements may very well be the answer.
Wishful thinking won’t help us shed excess pounds. We can only lose weight when we burn more calories than we consume. It is easier to stick to a diet and exercise program and thereby lose weight, if we feel full. Allowing yourself to become ravenously hungry will sabotage even the best of diets; you will grab the first food in your path. But what if you are doing all the “right” things and still can’t suppress appetite, decrease food intake or slow down your body’s fat build up?
The Southeast Asian tree Garcinia Cambogia, whose dried fruit rind contains an extract called Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA), has traditionally been used as a spice, a natural preservative and as a digestive aid. The rind’s extracts are also used medically in south Asia to treat angina.
Medical studies have shown that HCA can inhibit fat and cholesterol synthesis, suppress and reduce food intake safely and naturally. Investigations also suggest increased calorie burning and energy levels are associated with HCA intake.
Our muscles and liver store those calories from our foods, which are not immediately used for energy as glycogen. Excess carbohydrate and protein calories are converted to fat and cholesterol with help of the enzyme ATP – citrase lyase.
HCA increases glycogen formation and decreases fat and cholesterol production by temporarily inhibiting ATP – citrase lyase. This results in increased stimulation of glucoreceptors in the liver and seeds signals to the brain that you are full. Thus, appetite and food intake are suppressed.

Healing Modalities to Consider…
Is the science and art of restoring proper neural communication within the body to alleviate pain, strains, and illnesses. By aligning the spine and allowing proper flow of the central nervous system (which controls all) to organs, muscle tissues and joints, the body is able to cope more easily with daily life, and function at its optimal.
Many of today’s health problems arise from stress. Because stress upsets the delicateintegral balance of all your body’s functions, regaining this balance requires a holistic approach. Massage therapy not only treats those parts of you which are a problem, but also affects the whole of your metabolism through normalizing your circulatory, muscular and nervous systems and their interdependent functioning. Massage therapy is safe and effective if used for stress management, but is also widely used to help patients obtain relief from many specific problems. Massage can benefit people of all ages and conditions -babies, children, pregnant women, the elderly, those in chronic care and those who need palliative consideration.
Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the hands and feet which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.
