I would like to congratulate those of you who have completed your 21 day detox and thank you so much for the many testimonies and comments. I am so proud to be part of a group of readers that are taking an active role in their health, weight and longevity.
Over the winter, most people indulge in unhealthy living such as larger meals, less exercise, and increased stress. This also includes unhealthy eating habits featuring larger portions, less fresh vegetables, increased salt, sugar, processed and fatty foods. This is the time of year when my phone rings off the hook. Many people have a lot of vague symptoms of ill health from the buildup of toxins in their body over the winter. Their bodies becomes weak, their immune system suffers, their energy is low; they get sick and gain weight.
The symptoms are so common many people ignore and/or accept them as part of the winter blues sleepiness, fatigue, headache, runny nose, cough, joint pain, stomach ache, and bowel irritation. The most common symptom of all is weight gain and they wonder why. Rich large meals of canned or instant foods are full of artificial coloring, pesticides, and chemicals. Furthermore, they also lack vitamins, minerals and enzymes necessary to feed your body. This build up of toxins and lack of good nutrition can cause harm to the body and create chronic illnesses as well as food intolerances that some people call allergic reactions.
The need to detox your body from such junk and stress has never been greater.
If this sounds you then it?s time to get healthy for the spring by following the Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox Program. Let me explain a little about cell theory and how it effects your health and well being. The cell is the life force of our body and is the basic unit of life. Your body is made up of about 75 trillion cells: skin cells, brain cells, muscle cells, bone cells, organ cells, toenail cells, etc. These cells make up systems that perform all the thousands of functions that control your body: the digestive system that nourishes your body, the neurological system that manages your brain which thinks and feels, the musculoskeletal system that holds up and moves your body, the lymphatic system that cleanses your body and the immune system that fights off illnesses and rescues you when you are sick. Everything your body is and everything your body does is done by cells.
Healthy cells will obey the laws and the regulations that make each body system work smoothly.
Many of your cells (such as your liver cells) have the ability to repair and regenerate, other cells (like your skin cells) die off and are replaced by new cells. In all cases you want your cells to be healthy and well nourished. Different cells require different nutrients to survive and thrive, so in order to keep your whole body healthy you need to feed it with foods rich in vitamins, minerals, glucose, amino acids (proteins), fatty acids, enzymes, oxygen and water.
When you feed your cells with food that pollutes them or harms them or when the food you are eating does not give your cells what they need, they cannot obey the laws and regulations of a healthy body. When a cell system loses the ability to function normally it effects other systems, other cells suffer and the body breaks down into what we call illness or disease, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, depression, arthritis, cancer and obesity?which is now considered a disease. Weight gain occurs when the cells underneath our skin become bloated fatty tissue cells loaded with stored chemicals and toxins.
Detoxing is one of the best ways to feed your cells by giving them maximum nutrition in small doses.
For example one glass of green juice is worth 8 to 10 servings of green vegetables. This is more than most of us eat in an entire week. Green juice is not only rich in vital nutrients, it also helps rid cells of excess acid which in turn alkalizes our body allowing for better oxygenation. Detox Diets are also known as cleansing diets, juicing diets, or fasting diets and are making news as the quickest, easiest way to shed pounds, boost your energy and feel better. The Martha?s Vineyard Diet Detox Program consists of juice therapy, enzymes, supplements, thick delicious vegetable soups, herbal cleansing formulas and teas, along with rich flavorful berry, banana, carrot, tomato and green drinks. By indulging in this life style, your cells are well fed so that you are never hungry. The program not only feeds and builds good cells but also cleanses your cells by flushing out toxins and washing dying or unhealthy cells from your body. So remember the key is “maximum nutrition in small doses” it’s the best way to detoxify and nourish at the same time.
Detoxing can change your life, change how you feel, change how you look, and it even promotes natural weight loss. My goal is to educate you on a simple, safe at-home program that will help all your cell systems to work efficiently. Healthy cell systems make your skin glow, your concentration clearer, your memory sharper, and your energy better. I emphasize a detailed schedule of vital nutrients including juice and soup recipes. I?d also like to remind you of the importance of clean water (see my last article Drinking Water Could Save Your Life). Many people have asked me about colonics (cleansing your colon). The colon and the liver is such an important part of cleansing that we will discuss it in another issue. I hope to show you how to keep your body healthy and your immune system strong by detoxing for 21 days at least once a year.
I look forward to partnering with you to promote a healthier body through better nutrition and a greater sense of well-being. The Martha?s Vineyard Diet Detox is a revolutionary program that gets your body back on the wellness track and can help you lose 21 pounds in 21 days.
