As a Personal Trainer and Nutritional expert, I’ve seen a lot of “conditions” over the years. As a society we’ve strayed away from eating healthy and maintaining a diet that’s truly balanced and pure. A lot of the conditions that are prevalent in our world today, are usually treated by conventional medicine, which sometimes is valid and the right thing to do. In my experience, however, a lot of these cases are not totally controlled, but are complicated with “side-effects” from these conventional medications.

Basically – it’s time to go back to the basics. In the world we live in today, we’re bombarded with toxins from the air we breathe to the foods we eat. We’ve been raised in the “Microwave” society and want everything FAST. Our foods of choice have become “Fast Foods” for the most part. However, from “Fast Foods” to the foods we buy in Supermarkets – we need to be aware that to some degree, they are full of toxins, preservatives, additives, fillers, artificial anything. If you look at food labels it looks more like the formula for rocket fuel than something we should be eating! I advise you to take a look at these 2 movies, you can find them online everywhere. The first is a documentary/movie called “Super-Size Me” and the next is called “Food Matters”. If you haven’t seen them already – get ready for an eye-opener!

Some artificial preservatives can affect general health. They’ve been linked to tumors, weak immune system, sickly skin, headaches, asthma, among a host of other symptoms. There are also studies presently occurring to see if these preservatives have any direct link to assorted cancers. Did you know that the average human body takes longer to decay now than they did 100 years ago? This doesn't just have to do with modern medicine, it's also a direct result of the enormous amount of artificial preservatives humans ingest with their food. I’m not sharing this information for you to get alarmed now! Listen, knowledge is power… The good news is you CAN do something about it. Eating organic foods LESSENS the toxins you’re consuming, eating as much raw food is the healthiest thing to do. Raw foods contain live enzymes which are processed through the pancreas to provide the body with a living, thriving environment. The life of most cells is short – new cells are constantly being produced to replace the dead ones.

The raw materials for this rebuilding comes from the blood stream.
When the blood stream contains toxins, the process of rebuilding cells is disrupted. This makes resistance to disease diminish significantly. It’s important for you to realize that if you continue to eat processed foods and if you have a genetic weakness, the cumulative effects of toxins will increase the risk of future illnesses and premature death.

Aside from eating a healthier regiment, it is highly advisable that you periodically go through a cleanse and detox system. Let me give you an example of what is going on within your body. Your cells currently look like raisins and are "wrapped" in toxins, the fat comes into the body and in order for your complex human body to help protect itself from the toxins, the fat then wraps itself around the toxins. What happens when you do a cleanse is that as it sheds the toxins from your cells, it also sheds the fat wrapped around each cell. This gives your cells freedom from the toxins and your cells come to life and now becomes a "plum". With this regeneration of the cells coming to life and working optimally, you feel a surge of renewed energy, mental clarity, feel healthier and usually drop weight. It's not meant to be a weight loss program, but that's what happens as the body releases impurities. Even if you're a vegetarian and eat "healthy" our foods have contaminants that are out of our control. Our soil is depleted of nutrients as well, so one apple we eat today is equivalent in nutrition to 20 apples - 50 years ago.

Eat well, be healthy and stay strong!
