I recently read a book called Juicing, Fasting, And Detoxing For Life by Cherie Calbom MS author of Juicing For Life. This book was fantastic and if I could I would give you all the details that I found helpful and life changing but this is a book and would take far to long so I will just give you a few highlights. "The programs in this book include short juice fasts and specific cleanse programs that act similar to spa treatments on the inside. They're somewhat like a housecleaning crew for your organs and fluids, on down to your cells. "
I also have three copies that I would like to send (at no charge)to three lucky winners who would be interested in reading this book. The only problem is that I need some help here creating a contest. My idea at this point is for all who would like to read this book and win a copy just put a comment here on my blog and I will put all the names in a hat and Ava will draw three winners. You will want to read this book and have it on hand to reference so I highly recommend putting your name in the comment section of this post and say Pick me! If you have a better contest idea let me know otherwise I am just going to do the pick out of a hat contest (I am so original).
Highlights From the book Juicing, Fasting, And Detoxing For Life- by Cherie Calbom MS
**Detoxing can help us lose weight-"Vast amounts of toxic substances found in our environment, including carcinogens, are stored in fat cells. Because the body uses fat to hold toxins thereby protecting delicate organs, we often find it hard to lose weight. Ironically, fat is our friend when it comes to toxins. It protects us from all the acidic and toxic waste that endangers our organs. But when we remove this mess through detoxing, our bodies no longer need this protection, so they can begin to let go of the extra fa. We suddenly notice that our clothes fit better and we feel lighter and happier, while fat just seems to be melting away."
**Liver, Gallbladder and Kidney Cleansing-Cherie, the author gives you several"detox programs that will help you cleanse the liver, gallbladder and kidneys and assist them in functioning well so you can feel healthy, energetic and really alive. It may seem strange to think that the liver, gallbladder and kidneys have something to do with how you fell , but they do. Their health is key to your overall health."
**The Mind Body Connection-"The way you choose to use your mind, will , and emotions and the way you respond to your outer world has as much, if not more, to do with disease as your diet, lifestyle and environment. The body is a mirror of your inner thoughts, emotions and beliefs. Science has shown that when you are in a state of distress, your cells come into disharmony. More than any other factor, emotional stress weakens the immune system and you are less likely to control anything from parasites to cancer cells."
This is just the very tip of the iceberg but I think gives an idea of how this book can help you become much healthier. There are a multitude of juice and soup recipes for a variety of things. From a colon cleanse juice cocktail to a good sleep nightcap juice. I feel like there is so much beneficial information that I am not doing this fabulous book justice so trust me when I say if you want to look and feel better (and lose some weight) you will want to win or buy this book. I will leave you with a recipe to try!
