The need for a detox
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:
- bloated stomach,
- sluggish digestion,
- 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.

Many people have high levels of cholesterol in this country. Sometimes those numbers are very high and some are just borderline high. Many medical professionals like to prescribe statin drugs to lower these high levels, without a look at the long term side effects of statins. Statins work to blunt the production of cholesterol in the liver.
Some of the common side effects of statins include muscle loss, raised blood pressure and decreased mental function. Who wants these side effects? These side effects of statins can be debilitating and can really decrease the quality of life.
Instead of enduring the side effects of statins, why not take a TLC approach. By TLC, I mean Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes. Here are some of the choices to make within the Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes:
- Cut your daily calories from saturated fat to less than 7 percent.
- Eat less than 200 mg a day of cholesterol
- Increase your soluble fiber intake to 10-25 grams per day.
- Take in no more than 25–35 percent of daily calories from total fat (this includes saturated fat calories)
- Maintain a healthy weight by not overeating.
- Get at least 30 minutes of a moderate intensity physical activity, such as brisk walking, on most, and preferably all, days of the week.
- Add 2 grams per day of plant stanols and sterols to your diet. In most cases that will require some degree of supplementation.
It is not all about looking good. It is about good, long term health and that health can begin with a healthy waistline. Why not feel better and enjoy life more?
Losing as little as 5-10 lbs can actually lower your risk of heart disease. In fact, in one study blood pressure decreased, there was increase in good HDL cholesterol, and a drop in bad triglycerides. So, can we count you in for 10 lbs off? Get to a healthy waistline.
