Diets are very high on the list of topics these days. Many people are so fixated on the loss of weight, they loose track of the true goal: being healthier. While weight loss is a great goal, when not done properly, the work and effort is all in vain. Maybe a detox is better.
Diet vs. Detox
When toxins are in the body, which we all have a lot of them, the body produces fat to “encase” the toxin as a protective measure.
A diet that concentrates on weight loss can cause the toxins to be exposed when fat is lost (if fat is actually lost in the diet; oftentimes it is muscle that is lost in a traditional diet.) This exposure of toxins can have negative affects. It also means a higher concentration of toxins in a smaller body after weight loss.
Detox / Cleanse
On the other hand, when one goes through a cleanse or detox program, the goal is to rid the body of toxins along with weight loss. This will result in a lower concentration of toxins in a smaller body, which is the desired result. It also means the body will not re-enlist fat to encase the newly exposed toxins, as is the case with the typical diet.
The rebound effect is much less likely after a detox than that program that focuses only on weight loss.
If you find that fish are too expensive or you don’t like to eat fish, you might consider supplementing your food intake with fish oil. That can be a tricky proposition, what with all the the sketchy products out there. Make sure your choice is one that is free of heavy metals and other contaminates. Sometimes fish oil supplements will cause a smelly, distasteful digestion. Shaklee omega 3’s contain a very beneficial odor control component.
Maintain a healthy heart and cardiovascular system* with the concentrated, ultra-pure omega 3 fatty acids in OmegaGuard®.
Why fish oil?
Besides heart health, Omega 3’s are so beneficial for inflammation, joint health and even brain functioning. Do whatever you can to get omega 3’s into your diet. While eating fish is great, as mentioned above, it can be expensive and there is much controversy over the “cleanliness” of fish. Which is better, farm-raised or wild-caught fish? Using a quality supplement like OmegaGuard takes the guessing out of farm vs. wild and clean vs. toxic.
Why Shaklee fish oil?
OmegaGuard is cold processed to preserve the integrity of the omega 3 fatty acids. Because fish oil can contain a lot of contaminates, Shaklee takes extra care to use small species of fish that have a shorter life span and do not build up toxins. The processing operations include a triple distillation that maintains the viability of the fish oil and its benefits to the body. Buy it now!
Keeping a healthy immune system is crucial to long term health. Besides those nasty little bugs that cause sneezes and wheezes, your immune system also fights off major illnesses, even cancer. A weakened immune system also hampers day to day activities from work to play and restful sleep.
Basic health rules apply to the immune system.
Get plenty of rest
Laugh as often as possible
Our eating habits and routines often do not provide what we need for daily living and immune health. Instead, choose a well-balanced variety of vegetables and fruits as the first step to building health, energy and immunity. You will also want to take the right nutritional supplements. These will help to fill in the gaps of your daily food intake for nutrition.
Many nutritional components need to be in place. Vitamins b, c and zinc are important. And do you have the nutrients to help your body formulate interferon? Interferon is a key component of the body’s self defense system and is naturally produced by a healthy, well-nourished body. It is even offered to cancer patients in high doses. Normally those high doses are more than is needed by average, healthy persons. Interferon is produced and activated by the body in the time of need rather than over producing, It is kept at a safe level until the requirement is present.
It is a better plan to give your body the components it needs to produce it’s own natural interferon. That production cannot happen without the needed raw materials (nutrients).
Interferon is simply crucial to healthy immune function. Support yours right at the cellular level with Shaklee NutriFeron®. http://bit.ly/DHHNutriferon
We often eat the wrong things. And we often do that for way too long. This can lead to build up of toxins and other unwanted, dangerous substances in the digestion tract. These substances can even find their way into individual cells. This “infiltration” of undesirable elements can create the need for a good, thorough detox.
At this point, many people decide to do something drastic about undesirable symptoms:
low energy and
poor sleep quality
Often that “something” is a harsh detox program that is difficult to adhere to and feel good about. Some detox programs can be damaging to normal body functions, such as metabolism.
A safe way to reset the body is with the 5 x 5 Reset program. This is a 5 day cleanse that is easy to follow and it lasts for only 5 days. Participants report more energy, lost cravings, weight loss and/or inch loss and better digestion and higher rest quality. With added support from a closed Facebook group, the system keeps those “reseter participants” engaged and motivated to do their best, follow the guidelines and share their experience.
After the 5 days, there is an opportunity to maintain momentum and go forward with a transition program. Interested parties should contact this blogger for details because it will make a long term difference in health and vitality.
When going through our day, sometimes we need a little help with our energy level. But that jittery feeling I get from coffee is not comfortable for me. I am also not comfortable with those popular “energy drinks”. I don’t know about the safety of their ingredients and I don’t know how they affect my long term health. So, when I need a little help, I use Shaklee Energy Chews.
