[VIDEO]: DETOX Principles to put the Zest & Zing back in your life!

DETOX Tips: How to Naturally Detox Your Body, Boost Energy, Improve Mental Clarity & Lose Weight!

So you’ve not been feeling 100% and you’re not sure why or what to do about it?

If this is the case then it may be time to consider a detox! A DETOX is like hitting the reset button!

All of us stray from living in a way that supports our health: too little sleep, too little exercise, too much bad food, too much stress, not enough time for ourselves.

Or perhaps …

  • You just want to fit into your jeans
  • You can’t control your sugar and carb cravings
  • You want to remove toxins from your body
  • You want to prevent chronic disease
  • You want to enhance your immune system function
  • You want to slow premature ageing
  • You want to improve your quality of life
  • You want to increase your energy
  • You want to improve how your skin, hair or face feels and looks
  • You want to improve your mental and emotional clarity
  • You want to improve your metabolism or digestion
  • You want to reduce digestive inflammation or leaky gut
  • You want to mnimise toxic exposure and maximise toxin elimination.

If you never have detoxed, a better way of living could be in store for YOU!

Coenzyme Q10: The Body’s Spark Plug

 

Many of us know very little about the goings on inside our cars – we turn the key and the engine starts, right? Are you aware that while there are many important aspects to having a smooth running engine, a primary condition to having your car start when you turn the key is having good clean spark plugs? Just as a car can’t run without an initial spark, without adequate ‘spark’ the human body just can’t get going either. When we are running short of important ingredients our body gets sluggish and is hard to get going.

Well if they are so important, I have a question to ask: When was the last time you looked after the spark plugs in your body? Where are these ‘spark plugs’ you may be asking.

 “Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) could be considered the spark plug of life due to its key role in energy production.”

According to a NZ research based company “Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) could be considered the spark plug of life due to its key role in energy production.” How about that! Dr. Karl Folkers (1906 – 1997) left a legacy of over 66 years of outstanding research in organic and biological chemistry. He believed that a 25% deficiency in the body’s CoQ10 levels is enough to cause illness, while a deficiency of 75% or more can lead to death.  Although coenzyme Q10 is normally produced by the human body, medical institutes such as the Mayo Clinic recommend increasing the dietary intake of CoQ10 (depending on the cause of the CoQ10 deficiency), along with supplementation of it and the other vitamins and minerals needed to produce or utilize CoQ10.

Bruce Ames, professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of California, Berkeley, also presents a hypothesis that implies micronutrient deficiency may eventually deteriorate the quality of whole human cell health. A portion of Professor Ames’ abstract reads as follows:

Inadequate dietary intakes of vitamins and minerals are widespread, most likely due to excessive consumption of energy-rich, micronutrient-poor, refined food. Inadequate intakes may result in chronic metabolic disruption, including mitochondrial decay. Deficiencies in many micronutrients cause DNA damage, such as chromosome breaks, in cultured human cells or in vivo. Some of these deficiencies also cause mitochondrial decay with oxidant leakage and cellular aging and are associated with late onset diseases such as cancer.

Laundry Powder Leaves More Than You Expect!

Does anyone in your family suffer from skin problems, rashes, allergies, asthma? Perhaps you’ve tried everything and you just can’t seem to get on top of it? I know what it’s like because that’s what I was dealing with as a young mother. Four of my five children had skin problems, asthma and, or allergies. When I looked further after twelve years of constant issues, I was horrified at what I found. There were several rooms of the house that I had to take to task, but for now I am going to direct your attention to the laundry.

Maybe you’re overlooking this one single aspect, and changing what you use there could make all the difference. Did you know that the laundry is one of the most insidious aspects of your home, when it comes to unaccountable health issues? Did you know that most cleaning agents contain a toxic slew of chemicals? That even your laundry powder can leave residues on your clothing that can be potentially absorbed by your skin or even evaporate into the air  around you, for you to breathe in?

Typical laundry detergents may be imparting more on your clothing and skin than a “fresh” scent.

7 Life Lessons we can Learn from Geese!

 

A friend of mine was recently sharing about the innate wisdom of her chickens.  It reminded me of this wonderful story which I bought to the team’s attention back in 2008, which again seems particularly appropriate at this time and in this era of rapid change and disruption.

Often growth can create overwhelm, discomfort and distress – yet growth or death are the only two options that are offered equally to all living and sentient beings.

In this post I would like to draw out how these amazing birds manage to fly distances and overcome odds that are considered almost impossible. The story about the geese shows how we – as individuals wishing to benefit from  and work as a team – have much to learn from our feathered friends.

In the autumn if you live in a region where they pass by, you see geese heading north (or south depending on where you live) for the winter flying along in the “V” formation. You might be interested in knowing what science has discovered about why they fly that way, because learning the lesson means that you can get where you want to go faster and easier.

Why the V Formation?
