    Fall – the end of watermelons!

    I absolutely love the fall. My favorite time of the year hands down. The cooler weather, the changing colors, the time for reflection and rest. It’s a beautiful time of the year. There’s just one problem – I can’t find my favorite fruit – the Watermelon. Yes – I love watermelon. In the summer, you can find anywhere from 4-6 watermelons on my kitchen floor just waiting for more room in the fridge. I juice about 3-4 watermelons a week during the hotter months. And that’s not to forget the watermelon that I actually eat. Plus my dogs love it too. Nothing hydrates like a juicy watermelon. Much more hydrating…

    Resolution VS. Reinvention

    According to statistics, one third of people who make New Year’s resolutions will break their promises to themselves by Valentine’s Day. What a downer! What is a resolution, really? In my opinion it’s a catch all for recognizing that we want to achieve something. A little more of this or maybe a lot less of that. Perhaps, we want to explore some new interests or actively seek out something or someone. Regardless of these singular goals, the source of it all is a personal commitment to ourselves that we are going to do something different in order to get different results – the desired results. This is much easier said,…

    Back to the Basics of Detoxification

    Often times we get so eager to get on the other side of our health concerns that we are willing to try all the new things that the latest research has to offer or go straight for the most drastic change so that we can get back to our bad habits as fast as possible. We want to get to that advanced point on our path so badly, that we don’t always spend the time preparing and building the foundation to sustain the improvements that can eventually be achieved. Not only do we have to change the way we eat, but the way we think about healing and medicine. We…

    3 Ways to Handle Detoxing on the Holiday

    Happy 4thof July! Holidays are those times when all of the things we love come together – good food and family & friends. But when you’ve decided to change your eating to elevate your health, holidays can be a little tricky. I mean, first of all, there’s just so much delicious food involved. Then you may have friends and family that are skeptical or even flat out against your choice to change your diet and detox yourself with “just fruit and veggies”. There will also be those who don’t oppose it, but just won’t understand why you aren’t drinking a beer or eating a hot dog or hamburger at the…

    Correct Your High Blood Pressure

    I received the question of what fruit helps with high blood pressure.   This is a great question and I knew this person was thinking outside of the Medical Box by asking about fruit. The good thing is that the way of True Detoxification corrects high and low blood pressure easily along with all other conditions. Live, raw foods and more specifically, the more astringent water fruits (oranges, grapefruits, grapes, lemons, limes) work the best and will move stagnant lymph or acids to the kidneys for elimination while alkalizing the body at the same time. This removes stress from the body and brings about balance. You also need to make sure…

    The Medical Myths Concerning Fruit Sugar

    Here at Detox Your Way, we are constantly encouraging everyone to eat more fruit as it’s not only a perfect energy source, it is also nature’s medicine and your #1 Tool for Detoxification, with even vegetables coming in 2nd place. Sugar is energy. If you avoid it you don’t get the energy you need and you’ll never feel the vitality you want. Fruit sugar or Fructose is a carbon – a simple carbohydrate. Carbon is the base chemical of this planet and our bodies and is essential to life. Mother nature created delicious fruit for us to consume not because it was bad for us, but because it supports and fuels…

    Different Types of Fasting

    Fasting. Come on, Really? Fasting can’t be good for you. Isn’t that kind of drastic? Only fanatics go to that extreme. I thought only those weird people that live on communes did that. What would I look like telling my coworkers I can’t go to lunch because I’m  fasting. Whatever, man! Yeah, well – real people fast. It’s not crazy or far fetched or drastic. It’s actually natural and necessary. Temporarily allowing your body to address other concerns besides digestion is good for you. It’s instinctive in nature – animals do it when sick or injured and us humans are the same – we don’t have appetites when we aren’t feeling…
