Besides cosmetics and the natural health industry, weight loss products rank right up there in the category of a 100 billion dollar industry per year. Why? Because being overweight isn’t just a health issue – it’s a deeply emotional mountain to climb also. Some U.S. experts call the situation in the U.K. and U.S. “catastrophic”.
But keep in mind that obesity is a major health issue – not just a cosmetic one. Fat people have more fat cells. More fat cells means more toxins have a place to hide. Logically, drinking more purified water could help the situation. In fact, some have lost unwanted weight simply by adding that to their daily regimen. Water helps cleanse all sorts of impurities from our systems. Impurities that stand in the way of good thyroid function and metabolism.
While it may not be practical for most people, eliminating white flour, white sugar, alcohol and dairy from the diet really does encourage weight loss. It’s amazing how less flour based products allows us to stop storing unnecessary debris in our intestines. Yes, by upgrading our diets to include plenty of fruits and veggies, nuts and seeds in their raw format we are adding vital enzymes which in turn encourage the body to “eat” debris in the bloodstream. Debris such as parasites, viruses, bacteria and other pathogens.
Some have found it beneficial to include enzyme supplements in their daily diets as when digestion is not complete, residues remain, leading to more toxins and poorer metabolism. Our favorite plant based enzyme formula can be found here: human digestive enzymes.
So, with more water and more raw foods in our diet, another good idea would be to cleanse the intestinal and liver systems. One age-old natural plant that has helped thousands regain their health is lowly wheatgrass. While juicing your own wheat grass every day isn’t an option for everyone, a flash dried version is almost as potent and adds tons of vital nutrients that can’t be found in any other living vegetation. Grasses have power. A wheatgrass detox can both cleanse and build health that actually beautifies as it works.
