The Ultimate Guide to Purification and getting your Energy back!
The purification system that I use takes just 3 weeks to boost the elimination of natural toxins from your body. As these toxins leave, people report feeling lighter and more energetic along with experiencing better sleep and weight loss!
This self-directed purification can be accomplished over time with step-by-step instructions that will be outlined here in the Purification Corner every month!
Step 45: Moderate alcohol and eliminate cigarette smoking.
Hopefully no one will need an explanation for why smoking is bad for you (tar, nicotine, formaldehyde, etc).
Alcohol is not as simple. 1 glass of wine, particularly red, provides the body with resveratrol. But, so does grape juice. And grapes.
But, 1 serving per day has also not been shown to cause severe deficits either, rather over-indulgence is the biggest problem. Studies have shown moderate red wine consumption (1 serving per day) may reduce the risk of several cancers, dementia and depression. It may also increase insulin sensitivity and reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes in women.
The key is, therefore, moderation. One serving per day will provide benefits while minimizing risks. Over-indulgence will cause liver disease, heart disease, sleep disorders, depression, stroke, bleeding from the stomach, sexually transmitted infections from unsafe sex, and several types of cancer. It may contribute to problems managing diabetes, high blood pressure, and other health conditions.
Step 46: Add some unique fruits that are in season.
The next time you go to the store, go through the produce section and look for fruits that you are unfamiliar with. Florida produces pommelos, dragonfruit and jackfruit in the winter months. If you have never tried them, pick one or any of the “weird” fruits you may see and look up how to prepare them. Try something new just for the opportunity of trying something new! Dragonfruit looks scary! But, the inside is excellent, mildly sweet and very pleasant tasting.
Dragon Fruit Smoothie
5 or 6 ounces of dragon fruit, frozen or fresh
1 Banana, if the dragon fruit is fresh, the banana should be frozen
1/2 Cup of pineapple, fresh or frozen
1/2 Cup of mango, fresh or frozen
Liquid: Water, Almond Milk, Soy Milk, or other liquid options Approx: 1/2 Cup depending on the desired consistency
Spices: Lemon juice or Lime juice, cilantro, ginger try different tastes, use about 1 tablespoon of one spice, taste and add what you like.
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Enjoy!! P.S. If diabetes is a concern, this smoothie has too much sugar, cut everything in half and add some protein powder and more liquid.
Also, as with all smoothies, feel free to experiment with other berries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, acai berries, blackberries, the list goes on. And proteins are good in smoothies as well, try some almond butter, walnuts, sesame seed butter, peanut butter, protein powder, green powder. A word about green powder, the smoothie can cover much of the flavor of the green ingredients, just add them slowly and taste in between each addition to ensure the flavor is good for you. Purification doesn’t have to be difficult, a few changes can make a big difference. And smoothies are a great way to add fruits and veggies to you daily intake and experiment with new flavors, new spices, new proteins.
