How to “reboot” your health…
Have you ever been on a detoxifying cleanse to improve your health? Maybe you’ve just thought about it, believing that it would be good for you… but are not quite sure what to do. After all, there are a LOT of different cleansing programs out there… some good, but some not so much.
Why not try a cleansing program that is proven to be safe and effective? Until now, Shaklee’s Healthy Cleanse Program consisted of enough products for 2 total cleanses with perhaps some product left over. Good news! The program has now been streamlined. Introducing the 7-Day Healthy Cleanse, a program which provides 7 daily Morning and Night packets filled with carefully selected Shaklee supplements, along with a supporting diet plan for those looking for…
==>> digestive renewal and gut health
==>> a jump-start for weight loss
==>> or… simply more energy
If you commit to the 7-Day Healthy Cleanse, you’ll feel better… and be healthier… in just one week. Guaranteed!
Commit to self-care…
Scientists report a recent downward trend in overall wellness in the US, especially among women. Instead of focusing on changing habits, try committing to the process of increasing your wellness and overall well-being.
1) Focus on mental health. Your mental health is what drives your ability to achieve physical health.
2) Become better connected. Being in the company of trusted others can improve your mental health and lower stress.
3) Get outside. It reduces stress, improves sleep and enhances your immune system.
A little-known health epidemic…
Imagine that you are sitting in a room with 9 of your closest friends. Now imagine that 7 of you in this group of 10 have a systemic fungal infection of the mouth, skin, genitalia and/or intestines. You may scoff at the notion, but in most groups today, this is actually the case.
A study from Rice University shows that 70% of all human beings are infected by candidia-sis, usually referred to as candida. Known as Candida albicans, it can affect any age group, from toddlers to the elderly, males and females.
According to Harvard University infectious disease expert Julia Koehler, “Candida is the predominant fungal infection behind human disease.” She also reports that candida is the causal factor for an incredible 60% of fungal infections that patients acquire when they are in a hospital. Once acquired, as many as 1 in 3 of the infected will die with a bloodstream infection.
Yes, this shape-shifting fungus can be lethal, especially when the immune system is weak. But what exactly is candida? Best known in layman’s terms as a yeast infection, candida is a microscopic organism that inhabits all people. And… when your immune system is weakened, you are at risk for candida overgrowth, a process that occurs when your body fails to keep this single cell organism from reproducing. Unless treated properly (by removing its food source, for example), it quickly moves into multiple body systems and can lead to very serious health concerns.
Your diet and candida
Not only can proper nutrition be used as an effective treatment of candida, but it’s also the best preventative.
The elimination of grains, fruits, sugars, starches and any type of alcohol for 3 to 5 days is a good first step when candida develops. You can also make a vegetable broth from onions, kale, garlic, celery and sea salt. Remove the vegetables and sip the broth throughout the day, for 2 days.
To avoid candida infections, skip processed and fast foods, and instead eat the following on a daily basis:
♦ Green, leafy veggies
♦ Green drinks, like Organic Greens Booster
♦ Green tea
♦ Coconut oil and coconut water
♦ Garlic (Garlic Complex will work here)
♦ Chia seeds, flaxseeds
♦ Unsweetened, natural cranberry juice
♦ Turmeric, cinnamon
♦ Apple cider vinegar
♦ Sauerkraut, kimchee, or other fermented vegetables
Natural treatments for candida
When your immunity has been compromised, candida drugs can further weaken it. So natural treatments are a logical alternative.
One of the most natural ways to treat candida is to starve it. This means eliminating sugar from your diet.
You also need to make sure your liver is functioning properly. That’s where Shaklee’s 7-Day Healthy Cleanse Program comes in.
Do you have candida?
Candida Albicans is the most common human form of candidiasis, present in 40% to 50% of all diagnosed cases. Candida Tropicalis makes up another 20% to 30% of yeast infections occurring in humans. Here are a few of the more common candida symptoms.
==>> Chronic fatigue and exhaustion
==>> Cravings for sweets and unhealthy processed foods
==>> Bad breath, and a white “coat” on the tongue
==>> A foggy brain and poor concentration, as well as impaired memory
==>> Itchy skin
==>> Depression and anxiety
==>> Flatulence and bloating
==>> Joint aches and pains
==>> A loss of libido
==>> Chronic allergy and sinus issues
==>> Digestive problems
Candida is found in newborns, toddlers, children, teens and adults. While it is much more common in women, both females and males are susceptible to candida overgrowth. If you or someone you love experiences more than one of the candida symptoms listed above, contact your doctor as soon as possible. What starts out as a seemingly innocuous problem can further weaken your immune system, and lead to much more dangerous and even deadly health problems.
