RELEASE THE GREASE AGAIN! Aug 20 – 26

Release the Grease AGAIN!
Release the Grease AGAIN!

Hey There!  We are about to do another Juice Cleanse.  We are gonna start on Aug 20 and go for just one week this time.  Also, this time we are going to included not only pure juicing but pure blending too, because last time we did it…some folks couldn’t participate because they didn’t have a juicer but they did have a blender.  Frankly, there is very little difference between the two.  First of all, you are eating (drinking) the same thing…the only big difference is that with juicing you are removing the pulp out..and with blending you still have the fiber within which is pulverized to smithereens which is what we call  with pre-digested.

Pre-digested?  Basically that means that the blender did the chewing for you.  As you know, digestion starts in the mouth.  And we are supposed to chew our food till it’s like puree (or a smoothie) but who really does that.  I for sure don’t.  Now this is not to say that we should just be consuming only blended foods…we have teeth for a reason…but for the sake of our one week cleanse.  We can let our teeth so what they like to do…SHINE!

So, I you are interested in participating in the juice cleanse coming up this Aug, please sign up here: http://eepurl.com/Bc9e9

This list will be sent out pretty much daily with recipes and tips while we are doing the cleanse.  Also, if you are interested in joining our PRIVATE support network where folks are engaged in actively supporting one another then you must join by purchasing my book:  http://amzn.to/13BDrQe

Once you get it email it to me:  skaijuicepr@gmail.com with I GOT THE BOOK, SKAI!  And I will send you your private link into the group!  By the way, its hosted on FB!!  Also, when the cleanse is over the entry into this group is going up to $29…WHY?  Because this group is such an awesome forum, the people involved, the information shared, and the fact that I am creating amazing cooking classes (Vegan cooked and Raw) that will be featured for free in this group for you guys to be the first to review and learn.

So, we hope to see you there!  And let us know if you are going to be a part of our cleanse. We would love to see you in the MOVEMENT!  YAHOO!

THAT WORTHLESS FOOD COMBINING CHART CAN NOW BE THROWN AWAY!!

The Failed Food Combining Chart and all the others that are just the same!
The Failed Food Combining Chart and all the others that are just the same!

Ok…let me be the one to say that this food combining chart that has been going around the world for years is one big fat bowl of junkfood. There is nothing substantial about it and folks need to stop posting it as if it really saying anything prolific. Im kinda over the health garbage that comes out every year. What we gotta say to ourselves is where is the proof and does this make sense? NO IT DOESNT!

First of all, one of the biggest issues that this food combining chart mentions is that you cant mix protein with starch. UH! Well, just about everything has a lil bit of both: Beans, protein and starch; Rice, protein and starch; Many veggies contains protein and starch; This chart is wack and has NO scientific backing whatsoever.

It doesnt even go along with the process by which we digest food at all. This chart is basically saying that the stomach requires items to be digested one at a time, no mixing of foods, due to the release of digestive enzymes. How many people have over the years stopped mixing Melons with anything else? ME!! I admit to being a fool with the food combining for years…can you find any real information as to why you can eat melons with anything else but other melons? NOPE! Me neither! And guess what Watermelons and Cucumbers are related…but you cant mix them in the same eating? Sounds pretty darn silly to me!

Let’s be SMART folks! Im going to admit that this chart has puzzled me for years….because I could never follow it..and always felt guilty of not following it. Let’s face it! If this chart were really true, all people everywhere in the entire world would be sick every time they ate because all we do is mix our foods when we eat. The basis of all cuisines in the world is mixed macronutrients…and here is the good news…YOUR DIGESTIVE TRACT CAN HANDLE IT! YAY!

You are what you absorb!

You aren’t what you eat; you are what you ABSORB. Many people suffer from poor digestion. In fact, you might say that most people aren’t able to absorb the nutrients they swallow, so they remain in a state of nutritional starvation even though they’re taking supplements that would otherwise be quite helpful. These people tend to scratch their heads, wondering why all the nutrients they’re swallowing aren’t having the positive effects they had hoped for. The answer to this conundrum is found in enhancing the absorption of those nutrients.

Strong stomach acid is good for you

Pharmaceutical pill pushers have convinced many people that stomach acid is bad for your health. By promoting diseases like “acid reflux” or GERD, they misinform consumers into believing that heartburn and stomach pain are caused by too much stomach acid. But the truth is that in most (but not all) cases people actually suffer from weak stomach acid and they need stronger stomach acid to properly digest foods. It’s easy to test this by swallowing a teaspoon (or so) of vinegar with your meal and asking yourself whether it feels better or worse. For a surprisingly large percentage of people, the extra vinegar halts the pain they might normally feel after such a meal. This is a strong indication that they lack proper stomach acid production and could benefit from stronger acid. Vinegar is acidic, you see. Not as acidic as stomach acid, but far more acidic than most foods or beverages. Consumers have been persuaded by drug advertising to swallow over-the-counter antacid tablets — products that are actually very alkaline and therefore lower the acidity (i.e. raise the pH) of the liquids in your stomach. What most people don’t realize is that minerals require an acidic digestive environment to be properly digested and absorbed. If you lack proper stomach acid, you won’t be able to properly absorb minerals even if you swallow them! And this can lead to mineral deficiencies that promote the development of diabetes, cancer, chronic pain, arthritis and even heart problems (among other things). So how do you encourage the production of healthy stomach acid? In my experience, drinking fresh vegetable juices each day — especially celery and cabbage juices — greatly boosts stomach health, ultimately supporting healthy stomach acid production.

Digestive enzymes from living foods

Digestion is a complex process. It requires biochemical and physical processes to break down ingested substances into their nutritional components. This process is significantly aided by digestive enzymes which exist naturally in living foods (fresh, raw vegetable and fruit juices, for example). Heating foods (cooking them) destroys all digestive enzymes. This is one reason why cooked foods steal life away from people while raw, living foods impart life. Living foods usually come with their own digestive enzymes, aiding your digestive processes in breaking down and absorbing nutrients. Dead foods — which include anything pasteurized — stress your liver, pancreas and gallbladder by requiring these organs to produce extra digestive enzymes that are missing from the foods themselves. Because many people suffer from poor digestive organ function, they have difficulties absorbing the nutrients they’ve swallowed.

Probiotics

Many people suffer from serious intestinal flora imbalances. Western medicine, for the most part, remains astonishingly ignorant about the importance of intestinal flora to overall health, but those who study more holistic medicine understand the important role that these “inner bacteria” play in your health: The bacteria in your gut actually digest and transform nutrients you eat into other nutrients. They are, in essence, nutrient transformers that operate inside your body, producing nutrients needed for your health. That’s why people who take antibiotics often suffer serious digestive side effects in the days that follow: They’ve wiped out all the friendly intestinal bacteria that were providing essential nutrients! It’s easy to remedy this imbalance: Take probiotic supplements on a regular basis. This will feed your digestive tract the friendly bacteria you need. And don’t fall for the marketing sham of eating yogurt, thinking it’s loaded with probiotics. Virtually all store-bought yogurt is pasteurized, and pasteurization kills the friendly bacteria. This makes most “probiotic yogurt” products nothing more than a dishonest marketing gimmick. By the way, if you want healthy intestinal flora, it’s also important to reduce your consumption of dietary sugars. When you consume more sugars, you alter the bacterial population in your gut, causing a shift toward bacteria that feed on sugars. As you alter your diet to exclude refined sugars, the population of bacteria in your gut follows suit, shifting towards a non-sugar bacterial population.

Everything I’ve said here is supported by quotations on the website www.NaturalPedia.com where I’ve assembled over one million unique web pages covering tens of thousands of natural health topics. For those looking for more specific scientific references, simply use Google.com or Google Scholar to search for the topics described here. You’ll even find many of them right here on NaturalNews if you use the search box at the top of this page. (I’m often amazed when some people demand references for things that can be easily found with a simple Google search. The classic use of article references dates back to the era of library card catalogs when finding information was a laborious task. But today, not even 20 years later, finding information is virtually effortless on the ‘net. If you want to find information about how eating sugars alters the bacteria in your gut, for example, just search Google for “eating sugars alters the bacteria in your gut”.
