You Are NOT What You Eat!

I will have to disagree with the old saying: ‘you are what you eat’

The truth is that you are NOT what you eat, you are what you ABSORB.

If you take three people and give them each a beautiful organic salad, they will each get different benefits from it depending on the health of their digestive system.  If your digestive system is healthy, it will be able to digest and absorb all the benefits.

But what if it’s not?

If your digestion is not in top shape, then eating healthy might not be as useful.

Your digestive tract is a long, windy organ that collects a lot of ‘stuff’ over the years. If you’re not eliminating everything on a daily basis, the back-log can be a main cause of discomfort and disease.

There a lot more constipated people than you think; most of them living with it in silent suffering. Many of them think it’s normal to be constipated.

When you’re constipated, your body does not eliminate the daily toxins; and instead they end up going back into circulation and causing more damage.

To make sure that you are efficiently detoxing on a daily basis, make sure your digestive system is in top shape.  Start by drinking lots of water. Most people read through water advice and forget to implement. So I will write it again: make sure you’re drinking lots of water. Dehydration can really mess up digestion.

You can also add fibre into your diet, but please avoid wheat fibre which is very harsh and damaging. Get natural fibre from fruits, vegetables, and salads.

A professional detox programme can also help you get rid of years-worth of toxic build-up in the intestinal tract. Make sure you do that under the guidance of an expert.

If you have a week to spare, join us on a once-in-a-lifetime detox retreat at the end of April where you get to juice fast, clean out your body and your colon, and start fresh with lots of health information. All in the beautiful back-drop of the Turkish coast.

I will take a very small group for an intimate week of health and rejuvenation.
