Benefits of Detox

benefits of detoxWhy Detox – Benefits of Detox

The benefits of detox are many and the reasons people choose to detox are just as plentiful. Some people detox just to clean the toxins from their bodies. Some people do it to lose weight. Regardless the benefits of detox are abundant.

Depending on how toxic your body is will determine the overall experience of performing a detox.

One of the immediate benefits of detox is that many people lose weight when detoxing. Part of the reason this happens is that when you detox your body will work more efficiently. This efficiency causes your body to digest food more efficiently and as a result you store less fat.

Another one of the benefits of detox is that most people experience a higher level of energy. This is another benefit of your body working more efficiently.

The thing you must understand is that when your body is toxic your health is at risk. Imagine if you never changed the oil in your car. You will probably get away with that for a minute but sooner or later your engine is going to fail. The same logic applies to your body except you can not go buy a new one when the old one breaks.

Before You Detox – Benefits of Detox

One of the things most people are not prepared for is the fact that a thorough detox may make you ill at first. I know it may be hard to see this as one of the benefits of detox but it is.

Think of it this way. Your body is an amazing living machine and incredibly adaptable. As our bodies grow more and more toxic it adjusts to allow it to still function. Albeit not nearly as effectively but it still works.

I like to use the example of the heroine addict coming off drugs. It looks like they are getting really sick but in reality they are getting well. The same thing applies when you detox. Yes you are feeling sick but you are actually getting well.

I have seen many people start a detox program only to quit when they start feeling ill. They just do not realize that this is part of the process. The other thing to keep in mind is that the more intense the detox (faster) the more intense those sick feelings may be. The thing to remember is that this will pass and the benefits of detox are totally worth it.

During Your Detox – Benefits of Detox

During your detox it is important that you give your body a break while it is healing. If you drink alcohol, abstain. Try to eat healthy foods that are easy to digest. Ie: Salads, Fruits, Nuts, Whole Foods etc…

Also make sure you keep your body properly hydrated. Your body is really working hard when you detox. To get all of the benefits of detox you need to remember this and treat your body nice. Be Gentle! :)

Truly, be nice to your body. When you are performing a detox it is a very intense experience physically and mentally. So my advice is be gentle to your body and your mind.

Yes your mind also. You may be a bit cranky. Let’s face it if you are not feeling terribly well it can also effect your attitude. The most important thing is don’t quit! Once you have completed your detox you will feel great.

Dieting and Detox – Benefits of Detox

The last thing I want to mention is that I highly recommend a thorough detox before you start any type of diet plan. I just think if you are trying to lose weight then it makes sense for your body to be working as efficiently as possible when you start. Plus as I said before many who detox lose weight as a result of the detox. Think about it, the average person has several pounds of improperly digested food stuck in their colon. Let’s get rid of that before you worry about starting the diet.

Their really is no one on this planet that would not benefit from detox. Try it and I think it is something you will make a regular part of your lifestyle.

A Review of Rejuvenation – HGH Therapy – Read This Review Before You Buy

hgh therapyAn Objective Review of Rejuvenation and HGH Therapy

I know I am a bit sick and tired of all of the “Snake Oil Salesman” and that is why I am so excited about the HGH Therapy called Rejuvenation.

To say it is just HGH Therapy is like calling a Mazerati automobile just another car.

First of all Rejuvenation is a patent pending medical technology that has, in my opinion, no equal.

I have been using Rejuvenation for only five days and I am telling you straight up this is like nothing I have experienced before. One could argue that this is just the placebo effect but I came into this expecting nothing and so the physical effects I am  experiencing were not anticipated.

Skin Rejuvenation – HGH Therapy

The first and most obvious immediate effect this product had on me was the tightening of my skin. Wrinkles literally disappeared. As directed I took two of these pills before I went to bed the first night and the next morning I woke to less wrinkles.

I know it is hard to believe but I asked my girlfriend if I was seeing things and she was amazed. The fine wrinkles were gone around my eyes. Now I know this product promised that but if I could have a dollar for every product that promised to erase the fine lines I would be retired…lol. You also must understand that my girlfriend does not BS me. If it was not working and just a figment of my imagination she would have not hesitated to laugh out loud and tell me I was nuts.

This is just one of the myriad of benefits I have this far experienced.

Increased Energy – HGH Therapy

Another benefit i have realized is an increase in energy. Now when I say this I am not talking necessarily about just an increase in energy but more of a cleaner energy level that I experience. I am not sure if that makes any sense to you but I just feel it. I think perhaps the best way to describe it is that I feel stronger.

As you may or may not know I am not the “Choir Boy” for Healthy Living. I drink, I smoke and really do not consider myself some example of what you would normally expect for a Healthy Living advocate. I am more interested in finding the balance and Rejuvenation HGH Therapy is helping me do that.

How Does Rejuvenation HGH Therapy Work?

First of all it is not just HGH Therapy and it is not a synthetic version of HGH. It is a combination of naturally occurring supplements that in combination not only boost natural HGH rpoduction by almost 700% but also stimulates natural Stem Cell production that when combined literally reverse the aging process.

ReJuvenation™ has a revolutionary marine extract that has been scientifically proven in clinical studies to increase the release of adult stem cells into the bloodstream… and more importantly, mobilize those stem cells so that they can migrate to the parts of the body that need repair and renewal.

The thing is that no matter how much I laud this product, until you try it for yourself you will not understand what I mean. If you told me what I am telling you I would think you were full of baloney.

And that is what I recommend you do. TRY IT! Rejuvenation HGH Therapy comes with a “No Questions Asked” money back guarantee. If you are not thrilled with the product for any reason you can get your money back within 30 days. If your experience is anything like mine you will know well before the 30 day mark whether or not this is working for you.

Order Rejuvenation Now and start aging backwards!

Protandim – A Review of Protandim

ProtandimThis Review of Protandim

comes from a chiropractor called Keystone Chiropractic and quite frankly I could not have said it better myself so I figured, rather than try, I would just re-publish his words and credit him with the research and insight.

I am re- publishing the complete review without any changes. I will not add my thoughts and you can take from it what you will.

This review of Protandim has been well researched and all facts have been checked. I hope you enjoy.

Protandim: A Million Times More Effective than Your Average Antioxidant

But I want you to be skeptical!Protandim

I sure was.

For 7 years, I turned down dozens of offers from supplement companies asking me to promote their products. These companies didn’t ultimately have what it took to put my reputation and well-earned trust on the line for.

Protandim was no different. I first heard of this supposed “super antioxidant” at the end of April 2011. Unfortunately, it was a multi-level marketing (MLM) product. I wouldn’t be caught dead telling my patients about an MLM product. 

 

But then two things happened.

#1. Real Science

After learning about Protandim I started to do my due diligence and read through all of the third-party peer-reveiewed research papers.  Other companies had sent me research before. But they were never on the actual finished product, just the ingredients. This is what I call “borrowed research”.

The published research I read on Protandim actually had the name of the product in the studies. As I read through these studies I couldn’t believe what I was reading.  To me it seemed almost too good to be true.

#2. Unquestionable Results

After 4-5 days on the product, I noticed that my sleep was much more restful, and my mental focus and clarity was off the charts!  My memory was eerily sharp.

It had my attention.

 

Why MLM for Protandim?

How many times have you set foot into a GNC, CVS, or Walgreens in the past decade? For 7 years, Protandim sat on the shelves of these retail outlets collecting dust. Why? Because the bottle doesn’t talk.

Your supplement store clerk was clueless as to what this little yellow pill did. And If you (like me) were one of the millions who missed the ABC Primetime segment which aired in 2005, so were you. Until now.

I’m not your amateur supplement salesman. Actually, I’m not really here to sell you on anything at all. I’m only here to share a story with you. Since this story was not being told at the retail outlets, Protandim found itself in a bind. This groundbreaking product would either sleep with the fishes or go the way of 3-way calls, in-home presentations, and person-to-person marketing.

Lifevantage, the publicly traded manufacturer of Protandim, chose the latter. And here we are.

 

Protandim – Not Your Average Antioxidant

Direct dietary antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and E, while beneficial, are limited in their ability to neutralize free radicals, the scavengers that cause damage to the 50 to 75 trillion cells that make up your body. This destructive process called oxidative stress is associated with over 200 disease and conditions.

Typical dietary antioxidants neutralize free radicals one at a time. For example, one molecule of vitamin C kills one free radical. Then its job is over. While this may be helpful in reducing cellular damage, it is an inefficient process.

Why? Because your cells produce 300 sextillion free radicals daily. That’s 300 with 21 zeros behind it!

To neutralize that many free radicals, you would have to consume 375 oranges or 87 glasses of red wine or 120 vitamin C tablets (500mg)!

Protandim

Flip the Switch!

A well-kept secret is the fact that your cells can produce their own antioxidant enzymes like glutathione (the master antioxidant and detoxifier). These enzymes neutralize free radicals at a rate of up to one million per second!

As you age, your production of these protective enzymes diminishes, making you more vulnerable to disease.

The combination of 5 natural ingredients in Protandim wake up your sleeping cells by activating a protein called NRF2, which sends a message to your genes to produce more antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fibrotic enzymes.

How important is NRF2 activation? Well, according to renowned anti-aging expert Dr. Nicholas Perricone,

“Finding substances that can turn on the highly-protective transcription factor NRF2 holds the key to preventing a host of diseases.”

That’s exactly what Protandim does! It flips the switch on your good protective genes and turns off the bad age- and disease-accelerating genes.

After just 30 days, Protandim will reduce your oxidative stress by 40%, bringing your levels down to that of a 20-year-old!

What are the Ingredients in Protandim?

Protandim’s 5 natural active ingredients are:

▪ Milk Thistle Extract (Silybum marianum)
▪ Bacopa Extract (Bacopa monnieri)
▪ Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)
▪ Green Tea Extract (Camilia sinesis)
▪ Turmeric Extract (Curcuma Longa)

All have been used safely for thousands of years in Chinese and Ayurvedic Medicine. It is the synergism of these plant-derived ingredients that lends the product its potency.

Protandim is 100% Vegetarian – Free of Gluten, Wheat, Dairy, Gelatin and Yeast.

The Banned Substance Control Group recently certified Protandim as safe and free of any and all banned substances.

 Who is the Formulator of Protandim?

Protandim’s chief formulator is Dr. Joseph McCord, winner of the 1997 Elliott Cresson Medal. This award puts Dr. McCord in legendary company as past recipients include Henry Ford, Alexander Graham Bell, Marie Curie, and Orville Wright.

Dr. McCord was honored with the award for co-discovering the biology of free radical reactions in living organism. In other words, he co-founded the entire field of free radical biology! How’s that for credibility?

What Can You Expect From Protandim?

Oxidative stress can manifest itself in so many different ways, which is why product testimonials have been so variable. Reports from Protandim users include:

* Increased energy
* More restful sleep
* Enhanced immunity
* Reduction in joint pain
* Improved eyesight (I’m serious!)
* Rapid exercise recovery
* Radiant skin with reductions in fine lines and wrinkles
* Improved mood
* Faster hair and nail growth

I wish I could tell you some of the most amazing stories. But the last thing I need is a visit from the FDA!

What I know for sure is that Protandim will reduce your oxidative stress by 40%. Again, oxidative stress is associated with over 200 diseases and conditions. I leave it to you to put two and two together.

The Current Research
Seven studies at pubmed.gov. Harvard. LSU. VCU. Ohio State University. Journal of the American Heart Association. Skin Cancer. Muscular Dystrophy. Heart Failure. Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting. A 300% Increase in Glutathione!

There are currently 27 ongoing independently funded studies on various disease processes underway around the globe.

 

As I said this is an amazing review of Protandim from a well respected expert in their field. I truly hope you take it to heart and consider the benefits Protandim has waiting for you. To Order Protandim and try it for yourself Click Here

Healthy Living Starts With Your Thoughts

Healthy LivingHealthy Living – It Starts With How You Think

Every action begins with a thought, first you think it and then you do it and so it goes with healthy living. The thing is most media tells you a different story.

Take Google for example. If you do a search on Healthy Living in Google the first ten positions are dominated by sites that are focused on diet and exercise. And of the sites not focused just on diet, ie: Huffington Post, all they want to talk about is the business and politics of mental health. Not one site really talks about the idea of right thinking leads to right action and this is what healthy living is all about. In my opinion we have it all backwards in this country and it is the base cause of all of our challenges that we face as a nation.

Healthy Living begins with your thoughts. Many if not most people have so much negative chatter going on in their minds it is impossible to focus on the good. Healthy Living is about focusing on what is right and not on what is wrong. That is not to say that we are to bury our heads in the sand and pretend as if there are no issues to resolve. But having said that we must begin to approach the way we think about these challenges differently and in a more realistic fashion.

Half Empty or Half Full? – Healthy Living

This is a good place to start. If a person is constantly thinking “The glass is half empty” they are constantly looking at the negative side of things and it becomes impossible to focus on healthy living. Why not simply instead of worrying about how much you have, just decide when you want more and go get it. Fear of never having enough causes a multitude of issues in people’s lives from worry, stress etc…and it is never just focused on one thing. The thing to get honest about is what really causes this half empty thinking. In my experience half empty thinkers are never really giving their 100% in anything and so they expect something to go bad or be wrong. In essence “Half Empty Thinking” is a product of trying to cheat. An individual knows when they are doing this, whether they admit it or not, and when they do they expect it should be taken away and so they are constantly living with the fear of that.

Follow this thought process:

1. I am working for someone and not really giving my best effort and I know it. Instead of doing my job I am texting my friends, checking Facebook, shopping online, surfing the net etc…

2. The company is starting to lay people off and I become afraid that I will be next.

Question – Does the person that is continually producing more than everyone else ever have a fear of being laid off? Answer – No

Question – Does that same person fear not being able to find better work if it does happen? Answer – No

3. I have the fear that I will be next because I know I am not really doing my job in the first place and so why would they need to keep me. The fear comes from the fact that I know I am cheating and while I delude myself into thinking I am getting away with it I know I am not. (It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, ie: I believe I don’t deserve to stay and so I un-consciously do things that cause the worst to happen).

Try this thought on for size:

1. Everytime I am out with my significant other I am looking at other people.

2. My significant other begins to become afraid that they are losing me and I don’t know why. (Lie – Yes I do!)

3. They accuse me of not being engaged and I get defensive.

4. Now we fight all the time because they are accusing me of things that I am not doing.

5. I begin to become afraid the relationship is breaking up and guess what…it does…but only after both parties have demoralized each other to the point of no return.

Fear is no Friend of Healthy Living

Above of just some very simple examples of what fear and negative thinking can do to you. See the person with the wandering eye has that “Half Empty” mentality. They think there may be something better out there than what they have and so are constantly looking to see. Thing is they are too afraid to be alone with themselves and that is why they are in the relationship in the first place. Many people stay in these bad relationships for the same reason.

Let’s go back to the first example. Am I really afraid because people are being laid off or am I afraid because I am not doing my job in the first place? Here’s a little bit of “Inside Baseball”, an employer never lays off their best people.

A Quote from Jack Welch – Former CEO of General Electric

“Recessions are great. They give employers an excuse to lay off the bottom 10% of their employees and they can blame it on the economy”

I heard that several years ago on CNBC so please forgive me if I did not quote it exactly but that was the gist of it.

So what does all of this have to do with Healthy Living?

Only everything. While you are wasting time with a diet and the gym to get that super buff body you are killing yourself with stress that does not need to be a part of your life. Instead of putting in a half effort at your work and then worrying about getting fired just do your job. Either way you are going to be there so you might as well edify yourself while you are. If you think you can do better in another relationship then end the one you are in and go find out but don’t try to make the other person come to your level of fear before you do.

Healthy Living is all about honoring your word and who you are, sans the fear. You can not make healthy decisions if they are based from a position of fear.

Perhaps those two simple examples do not apply to you but I am certain you can think of similar situations where fear rules your thoughts and this is what stalls healthy living. I am not saying all fear is bad. Let’s face it if you are strolling across a busy intersection and jaywalking you may want to have the fear of being hit by a car. I am talking about the fear we create in our lives from trying for greatness while thinking mediocre.

Health Living starts with great thinking!

The bottom line is that when it comes to healthy living we need to change our thinking first and then change our diet and exercise regimen. Doing it in reverse is putting the cart before the horse.

Ever heard the saying – “Where the head goes the body will follow?”

This is not only true in the physical sense but also applies the metaphorical. Healthy Living starts with changing our thinking and thus our motives. The best thing we can do to begin living healthy live is to take an inventory and see just where we are sabotaging our own efforts. I think you will find it starts with our thoughts and then manifests in the physical.

Healthy Living starts in the head. Ask yourself in every situation you find yourself in, what would I do if I was not afraid of the results? You still might not like the outcomes or choices you are left with but they will still be better than outcomes and choices made from a position of fear. Moreover you will be well on your way to healthy living.

Remember, healthy living is something to be practiced. It is not an end in itself but a journey. Your shortcomings when it comes to healthy living are simply challenges to be respected and overcome. But these are not things that will happen overnight. These are the things that make up healthy living at its core. Self-Awareness is healthy Living. Honest Self-Appraisal is Healthy Living. There is no need to be afraid. After all it is only you that you are looking at. If you don’t like what you see then change it but don’t lie to yourself and stay trapped.

There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.

What is Healthy Living

Healthy LivingSo what exactly is Healthy Living? Ask ten different people and they will give you ten different answers about healthy living. Most will talk about diet and exercise, burning calories etc…

I believe it starts deeper than that. In a nutshell healthy living is an inside job. In other words it starts from the inside out. So just what do I mean by that?

Well take for example the person that goes to the gym everyday and physically is in great shape, sounds like we are talking about healthy living. But what if that person is so angry on the inside that all they want to do with all that muscle is fight? Is that really healthy living?

Healthy Living is an Inside Job

So often in this world we live in we are more concerned with appearances than what it really is. We tend to deceive ourselves when we live a surface existence like this. As a result we see people that constantly look like they have it all together while in reality their lives are a train wreck waiting to happen. This is not healthy living. Why?

The simple answer is that healthy living starts with healthy thoughts and healthy emotional responses and not your weight or body shape or skin tone or…Having said that it still feels really good when your outside reflects what is going on inside and while we will talk about all things health including emotional and mental we will also talk about the physical but only as a by-product of how we feel inside. All of it has to do with healthy living.

Healthy Living in an Unhealthy World

Whether you are speaking of unhealthy people or unhealthy environments, including physical, mental and spiritual, there is no denying that we are living in an unhealthy world and so the question becomes how do we live a healthy lifestyle when almost everything in our environment is against us? Including the people around us?

Healthy Living starts with a healthy state of mind and as such we are devoting a complete section of this blog on the mental aspects of healthy living. The thing is that much of how we think has to do with how we feel. This whole idea is very circular and one always effects the other and so I urge you not to put more emphasis on one or the other. Healthy Living is a mind, body and spiritual experience and if you leave out any of the legs you will not have the balance you seek.

Throughout this site you will see products and programs that I actually have used and am using or my partner has used and is using. I am not saying these are the only solutions, I am saying this is what we do and it works for us. The important thing is to get moving on your goal to healthy living. Much of it will be trial and error. The programs and product we use are the results of trying many different things. Some worked and some did not. The products and programs we cite on this website are the ones that are working for us.

Healthy Living – Knowledge is Power

The goal of this site is to share information and our personal experience. As such this site will continue to grow as we grow. Healthy living is not a “One and Done” type thing. It is an ongoing experience and a continual learning journey. I believe the key to healthy living is to keep an open mind.

From my own experience one of the most unhealthy periods of my life was most recognizable by my complete lack of the ability to experience new things. To bring that thought home I want to share with you a quote that I heard many years ago and it is this:

“Contempt prior to investigation will keep a man forever in ignorance”

Consider that even 25 or 30 years ago doctor’s and scientists would barely acknowledge that there might be something in this “Alternative Medicine Thing” and now the most successful cancer treatment programs in the country focus much of their efforts on changing the state of mind and emotions of their patients in addition to physical lifestyle changes.

For thousands of years people survived and thrived without pills from companies like Pfizer and Astra-Zeneca. It is only in the last 50 years that we have been totally sold on the idea that their is a pill for every ailment.

The worst part of this lie is that it is very close to the truth. There is a pill for every ailment it is just a question of whether you want it to be synthesized in a lab or you want it to be natural. I prefer the natural solutions.

As an example, recently you have probably seen ads all over TV talking about people that have had testosterone injection, creams, pads and what all…and now they are having heart attacks and dying. All because they wanted to reverse the aging process! But did you know there is a natural way to boost your own bodies ability to produce HGH (Human Growth Hormone) that has no negative side effects? And that it will naturally boost HGH by as much as 680%? How would you like to shave 20 years off your age? This is the hormone responsible for keeping us young.

Educate yourself! That is what this site is for. Knowledge is power especially when it comes to healthy living.

I hope you enjoy this site and that it helps with your goal for healthy living and a healthy lifestyle.
