How the Overload of Toxins in your Body can make you Sick

If your body is overburdened with lots of toxins, both those generated by its normal processes and those entering your system via your food, air or other means, and you are not drinking enough clear water or exercising, your elimination organs will reach a point where they cannot handle the overload. Our bodies normally generate carbon dioxide, old dead cells, fiber, urea, etc. and the organs that process and eliminate these and other toxic substances include the Lungs, Air Passages and Mucous Membranes, Liver, Kidneys and Bladder, Colon and Skin.

An Integrated Approach to Health

"To truly comprehend the root cause of a problem, you need to understand a person’s history, lifestyle and emotional state" says Dr. Mark Atkinson (www.drmarkatkinson.com) a UK pioneer of integrated medicine.
"I always start by investigating the basics of diet, hydration, sleep and breathing. Without this foundation, you won’t have good health. Then you need to address mental health – you can treat a person for a physical condition, but if they have emotional problems and you don’t deal with them, you won’t get to the root of the physical problem."

The Spiritual Practice of Everyday Life

Priceless Advice from the author of "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior" –
“When people ask me abstract questions about time, or space, or reincarnation, I may respond by asking whether they exercise regularly, eat a wholesome diet, get enough sleep, show kindness to others, and remember to take a slow, deep breath on occasion – because it seems important to bring our spiritual quest down to earth. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with philosophical speculation. But let’s not mistake conceptual thought for the spiritual practice of everyday life. After all, what does it serve to know whether angels wear earrings if we can’t hold down a regular job or maintain a long-term relationship? What good does it do to pray like a saint or meditate like a yogi if we are unchanged when we open our eyes? What good to attend a place of worship on Saturday or Sunday if we lack compassion on Monday?”

Dan Millman from Everyday Enlightenment

If you cannot apply your knowledge to your everyday life and relationships, it stays just that…Knowledge. If you can utilize your knowledge to make things work with the closest people to you and the things you do every day, then it becomes Wisdom.
You may not get it right the first time, or even the second, or third. Don’t beat yourself up about it, just keep at it – practice, practice, practice, until eventually, you’ll get it right and become a better, healthier, happier person.
As Dan Millman also says…We’re Humans-in-Training!
Priceless!

Benefits of Himalayan Rock Salt

Sole (“sou-lay”) is a saturated solution of Himalayan Rock Salt in pure living spring water. In its liquid crystalline form, sole is highly absorbable  by the body and contains all the minerals and trace elements present in our blood, all 84 of them! Taken a teaspoon in a glass of water every morning, it rebalances the homeostasis of the body as well as the pH, normalizes blood pressure and gets rid of toxic overloads in the cells and tissues, including heavy metals, difficult to break down animal proteins and calcium. It can also lower the craving for addictive desires. It obviously helps with skin diseases because it cleanses from the inside out. Sole supplies the body with the natural vibrational energy of its crystal structure which lasts for over 24 hours. Taken regularly, it improves digestion and metabolism by stimulating the whole stomach and intestines at the biochemical level. The overall availability of electrolytes is built up and the conductivity of the body is increased, which in turn stimulates the circulation and nervous systems. More

Healthy Snacks & Sweeteners

Healthy in between snacks

  • Make up your own Jungle Mix from Seeds (sesame, sunflower & pumpkin), Nuts & Dried Fruit (Dates)
  • Nuts must not be salted
  • Fruit with a handful of nuts (the protein takes away the hunger)

Almonds are the healthiest choice of nuts

Healthy food choices

  • Avoid Aspartame – used in  sweeteners and “Light” drinks

Rather use Xylitol, Stevia or Honey (in moderation)

  • Make your own fresh fruit juices with a juice extractor, it contains all the healthy enzymes!

If you have to use shop juice, thin it with water (too much fructose spikes bloodsugar levels) and buy the fresh ones from the fridge, the ones on the shelves have been pasteurised and have lost all their good nutrients.

They absorb immediately in the mouth and can therefore restore balance without having to go through the digestive system. They are safe for babies and animals too. More

Do a Basic Weekly Detox

It gives your Digestive System a chance to clean out.

Choose a day that you do not have to do any strenuous physical work.

Eat only fruit for a day, any fruit, as much as you want.

This way you still take in nutrients, but you don’t overtax the digestive system and the body can use that energy to clean out and repair.

You can also drink lots of water and herbal teas throughout the day. The water will help to flush out released toxins.

Have a Detox Bath in the evening. You can use 2 handfuls of Epsom Salts or 2T of Crystal Salt or 2T of Mustard Bath Salts in a bath of hot water, soak the whole body for 20 minutes to open up the pores of the skin and sweat the toxins out. Sip water or herbal tea during the bath to replace lost fluids. Get out slowly, pat dry, stay warm and sit or lie down for a while.

How an Acid Imbalance can cause Serious Health Problems

Causes of Illness & Disease Part 3

Acidosis, or the over-acidity in the body tissues, is one of the basic causes of diseases, especially arthritic and rheumatic diseases. Acidosis destroys bones, because the body has to steal alkalizing minerals from them to keep the blood pH from dropping into the acid range. If the acid alkaline balance is upset, cell metabolism suffers, leading to conditions such as fatigue.

The balance of acid and alkaline in our body is therefore essential to good health. More
