I'm tired of reading everyone else's epiphanies about 2009 and goals for 2010 so I will forego all of that. I was getting pretty tired of reading all the Happy New Year status updates on FaceBook and am quite happy that 2010 is finally here.
Husband and I are getting ready to move into our apartment. We've been hangin' with husbands family for the past three months and "temperatures are rising", even in the midst of winter. Our super-healthy-eating got pushed to the back burner and I am so longing to be in my own kitchen again. I need to control what is stocked in our pantry, thus making it easier to control what goes in my belly. Seriously! I'm anxious and excited to have healthy fare again. My body can feel the difference.
First on my agenda, after we move in, is to do a cleanse. There are several ways to achieve a cleanse. The most effective one for me has been Dr. Natura.
Dr. Natura - This cleanse is assisted by psyllium husk drinks. It's like Metamucil on steroids. I have tried other brands of psyllium husk but it doesn't quite compare to Dr. Natura's concoction. Before you click on the link, I must warn you that it is VERY graphic. I purchased this product for the first time in November 2008. I was totally disbelieving the pictures on the website. Can I tell you that those pictures are absolutely REAL?! I experienced the SAME results! I even took pictures of it as proof but quickly deleted them because who cares about how excited I am about my own poo?
Everything that is claimed on the website is FACT. At least, for me it is. I lost an easy ten pounds within the first couple of weeks. I had more energy. My skin got really clear. I lost all food cravings. I felt amazing! FYI: This is my independent opinion! They're not paying me for this. (I wish they were.)
This is not a total detoxification program. The basic program I got was a colon cleanse. Dr. Natura does offer detox products as well. I will be purchasing them this time around. This past August, I removed all the amalgamams from my mouth. These are the standard, silver fillings. These are filled with mercury and that is VERRRRRY bad for your health. They never tell you that when they're putting them in and more than likely parents have no idea how bad it is to the body. Anybody that took basic biology in high school can understand the osmosis process and how mercury can enter your blood stream. Totally different subject but definitely one of the reasons why I'll be doing a cleanse and a detox from Dr. Natura.
Another bad thing about the dentist, I just have to get this in here, is their promotion of FLUORIDE. This DRUG FACT you see pictured here are required by the FDA. This means that there is something in the item that is harmful to the human body. You can find these warnings on many common, household items like peroxide, Nyquil, even anti-perspirant deodorant.
Anyway, this post is about the colon cleanse. Dr. Natura is my favorite. I highly suggest it if you're interested in cleaning out your colon. Good stuff.
