• The Zig-Zagged Path to Health

    It seems to never fail that when I get going on a good, consistent stretch of following my detoxification plan (fruit for breakfast and lunch, then a salad or at least raw food for dinner), my will power is tested. This past week I was sequestered with my co-workers for a departmental retreat and I have to confess that I “cheated”. I had every intention of being strong. I was packed & prepared! Since I was riding in a car and not flying, I thought it would be a cinch. I brought my juicer, 4 bags of apples, 2 bags of grapes, a small bag of lemons, and my special blend of herbal tea. But then on Day 2 of the retreat, there were homemade brownies for dessert. UH-OH! I couldn’t resist! I ate two of them. And oh, man, they were delicious! Then another whammy – that evening, the owner of the company had a large dinner prepared for us and guess what? I ate some garlic potatoes and asparagus . Not bad, but not the raw food I had been eating. The next morning, I didn’t feel my best and I desperately wanted to get back on track.…

  • Detoxification Course Preview

    I’ve been asked by a lot of people to create an ebook or course on Detoxification and share my story as well. I’d been a little reluctant to do so however, since I’d really have to put myself out there with a detox course. And especially by telling my personal journey. But I realized there is a greater need for education about How to Regain Health that’s bigger than my desire to stay in the background. I want to help others and that requires more “me” – not fear. So I am putting the finishing touches on a Detox Course to help others that have been struggling in silence for years and years like me. But I need your input to make the course the best it can be! With the goal of helping as many people as possible and in exchange for your honest feedback throughout the course, I want to offer my 1st version of the course to my readers (you!) for only $85. If you want to sign up for the course (no payment now), please CLICK HERE. The 2-week course of Daily online lessons will be available at the end of March and will cover 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 your kidneys are filtering that acidic lymph out of the body via urination. This is key. The way to know if your kidneys are filtering lymph is to see if your urine is cloudy, no matter the color. If it is, then at least 1 kidney is filtering. This is hard to see looking directly into the toilet, so capturing the urine in a large glass container will tell you as well since the lymph will settle to the bottom (a little gross, I know, but effective). The longer you…

  • 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 our physical bodies! So let’s examine the miseducation of several medical myths associated with fruit sugar.   Fruit Sugar and Diabetes Many diabetics are concerned about the fruit sugar negatively affecting their blood sugar levels. But there’s no need to worry. Fruit Sugar or Fructose as a simple sugar or monosaccharide is absorbed directly into the cell wall; and therefore, does not require any insulin. That’s great news for diabetics. That means you can enjoy fruit without it doing harm. And most importantly that means that you can start detoxing with…

  • The Myth of Proteins in the Human Diet

    The Protein Myth We all tend to throw around the word protein a lot when speaking of nutrition. I’ll go out on a limb and say that the general perception of protein every since its discovery in 1838, specifically animal protein, is that it is the end-all, be-all for nutrition and building muscle. I’ll further assert that animal protein is widely considered to be not only the best source of protein, but the only real source. Nothing could be further from the truth. Protein (nitrogenous built structures) is actually the wrong conversation. It’s really not about the protein. It’s about the amino acids or nitrogenous compounds required to build the tissues and muscles. The body can only assimilate simple amino acids – those found in fruit and vegetables, unlike in animal flesh. Animal flesh is an inefficient, secondhand way to get the simple amino acids the human body requires. The metabolic process necessary to break down complex, already “built” animal protein into simple amino acids or the smaller nitrogenous compounds requires additional chemical processing in the body. This additional processing robs the body of energy and the acidic by-products from it begin building up in the tissues and joints, causing…

  • 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 our best. That’s when our body’s intelligence kicks in and says – “I can’t eat right now, something came in last night when that kid coughed on us in line at Target – gotta deal with that first.” So when we have major issues going on, it’s a good way to get back on track and our bodies can handle it. Luckily, there are alternatives to the traditional water fast that may be more effective and easier to fit into your current lifestyle. You still might have to tell your…
