WHY WE NEED TO DETOX & LIVE?

by Dr Mecherl Lim MD (MA) Naturopath (ND) , Holistic Kinesiology

Over the last 25 years, I‘ve taken care of patients who suffered from harmful effects of the wrong food’s industrial, factory made science projects, boatloads of sugar & flour – 152 lbs of sugar and 146 lbs of flour per person per year, to be exact. It’s done more than make then struggle with weight and yoyo diets.

It is completely derailed their health. Worse, they blame themselves for not being able to succeed at controlling their eating habits or cravings.  Millions of us, over half the population, suffer from FLC SYNDROME. That’s when you feel Like Crap. Sometimes annoying little symptoms such as achy joints or muscles or brain fog, fatigue, headaches, allergies or gas or more serious problems such as Autoimmune disease such as Migraines, Asthma, Acne, Irritable Bowel, Reflux, Arthritis or worse. When I use the word “DETOX” I mean a scientifically designed medical detox from sugar and all things than turn to sugar.

The Fun Part is that it’s done simply by taking out the Bad Stuff and putting in the Good Stuff….lots of Good Stuff.

Maybe I should call it the Feel Good with Good Stuff Plan!!!!

5 REASONS YOU NEED TO DETOX & LIVE

1) FLC SYNDROME- FEEL LIKE CRAP

When you wake up feeling LESS than Vital, Vibrant, Alive, Joyful and Full Energy, even if you are thin but have symptoms of being TOXIC like fatigue, brain fog, achiness, digestive issues, allergies, headaches ——really any symptoms all.

The DETOX can help you quickly. Most of us don’t connect what we are eating to how we feel.

2) YOU CAN’T LOSE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF

The Scientific Establishment has convinced as that weight is just a matter of calories in/calories out, that it’s about energy balance, about eating less and exercising more.

How’s that working out for you?  Probably Not So Well!!!!

Problem is, the Scientific Establishment is different from the established Science.  The Science says Sugar & Flour Calories are way different.

First, they trigger addiction and overeating.

Second, they spike insulin and inflammation, which make you store BELLY FAT and blocks your ability to feel full. The Verdict is in Sugar Calories that are worse than whole food calories.  Sugar spike insulin and triggers inflammation, a double whammy guaranteed to mess up any attempt at long term weight loss.

3) YOU CAN’T CONTROL YOUR SUGAR AND CARBS CRAVINGS (you may be suffering from addictions)

The fact is that sugar and flour are biologically addictive.  The science behind, it is clear and conclusive. Yet we blame the FAT PERSON for being lazy glutton which leads to shame and guilt.

I am here to tell you it’s not your FAULT.  Your Biology has been hijacked by the food industry.  They have done a hostile takeover of your taste buds, brain chemistry, hormones and metabolism.  More than 300 Food Industry insiders spilled the beans to Micheal Moss in his book, SALT, SUGAR & FAT, explaining they hire “Craving Experts” to create the “Bass Point” of junk food to create “Heavy Users” and increase their “Stomach Share”.  Sugar is the new Nicotine.  In fact, Sugar is eight times more addictive than cocaine.  If you are trying to use will power to Lose Weight you will fail.  You have to use science to unhook yourself from substances (or NON FOOD JUNK).

4) YOU NEVER DETOXED

Most of us have never in our life taken 5 or 10 days Detox or put nothing in our body but delicious, whole clean food.  Just 5 Days, even you think you are healthy and feel good, you may not realize that you normal state is not your Optimal State. Think of it as a tune up, a super quick, super easy way to supercharge your health.

5) YOU NEED A STAYCATION

All of us stray from living in a way that supports our health either too little sleep, too little exercise , too much bad food, too much stress, not enough time for ourselves. The Best way to reset your Age is a 5 Days Detox, Simple, delicious food, No toxin or drugs, by which I mean sugar, flour, processed foods, caffeine, or alcohol.  Self-Nurturing practises, deep breathing, sleeping 7 to 8 hours a night, a little exercise , Self love.  All this works to get your Body and Mind back to their original factory setting- and quickly!

So now that you know why you need A DETOX, how do you do it without pain and suffering? How do you take a shortcut to feeling, great?

Here’s the little secret that the diet and food industry, the medical establishment and Big Pharma don’t want you to know.  Most of us are only a few day away from Health and Happiness.  Even if you have already a bad case of FLC SYNDROME or even chronic disease. Food is the most powerful medicine on the planet to fix it.

Beyond Feeling Blue

By Ms. Chelsea Peh Mei Fung, Clinical Psychologist & Counsellor

B.Psy.(Hons) Counselling (UMS), MSc. Abnormal & Clinical Psychology (UK)

Karen is a 38-year-old experienced piano teacher who is very dedicated to her work. She is a talented piano teacher who has won many awards at the competitions. Karen used to think that she should get the award whenever there is a competition. Recently she was not nominated for an outstanding teaching award which she has been long waiting for. Suddenly she thought of her career life is in ruin and it felt as if the sky has fallen. She has withdrawn herself from other people, feeling depressed with a lack of interest in doing anything coupled with lack of motivation to go to work. She felt fatigue most of the day but had difficulty to fall asleep at night. She thought that everything was gone wrong in her life and it was her fault. She was feeling upset and wallowing in self-guilt for not being nominated for the outstanding teaching Award. She had thoughts about suicide as a solution to her unhappiness.

Everyone occasionally feels blue or sad. If one feels depressed for a prolonged period of time and it interferes with one’s daily life and normal functioning, or to the extent of developing physical problems, one is likely to have developed depression.

Depression is caused by a combination of biological, psychological and social factors. Depression is a “whole-body” illness, involving your body, mood, and thoughts. It affects the way you eat and sleep, the way you feel about yourself and the way you think about things. It is not a sign of personal weakness or a condition that can be willed or wished away. People with a depressive illness cannot merely “pull themselves together” and get better.

According to the report issued by the World Health Organization, over 350 million people around the world have depression. Up to 15 per cent of patients suffering from major depressive disorder eventually commit suicide. Depression can be reliably diagnosed and treated in primary care, but in many countries, there is less than 10% of those affected have access to effective treatments.

The frequency, severity and duration of symptoms may vary from person to person. According to American Psychiatric Association, DSM-V, if five (or more) of the following symptoms have been presented for over two weeks; at least one of the symptoms is either depressed mood or loss of interest or pleasure, it is highly possible that one has developed depression:

• Emotion

Markedly diminished interest in almost all activities, depressed mood, feelings of worthlessness or feeling hopeless, sad or empty. (note: in children and adolescents, can be irritable mood)

• Cognition

Recurrent thoughts of death, diminished ability to think or concentrate, or indecisiveness.

• Physical

Insomnia or hypersomnia, fatigue, decrease or increase in appetite, weight loss or weight gain.

• Behaviour

Social withdrawal, lack of motivation or suicide attempt.
