    • I have been doing research and I believe you are on the right track here. Water is key and cleansing to remove all the toxic buildup in the body is part of that key. ty

    • More on cleansing:

      Are you starting to question the belief that prescription drugs are the best or only answer to your health problems?

      If you‘re like most people, you’ve probably been taught that the cures to your symptoms are drugs.

      What you have been taught is not true. Symptoms—from Rosacea to Crohn’s to IBS to Acne to Psoriasis—are there because of the internal condition your current diet has created. More importantly, these symptoms can be healed completely, through little else than a change in the way you eat.

      Yet every year hundreds of new prescription drugs claim to hold the answer to your ever-growing list of health problems. Many people dutifully take these pills for each symptom and wait for the magic cure. Sadly, the cure never arrives, because these medicines never address the true underlying cause; they only mask the symptoms.

      What if there has always been a way you could make a profound improvement in your health – one you could actually feel and see – using just a change in what you eat? No pills, no side effects, no costly bills. Just one simple, biologically-based program that uses your body’s innate healing ability to restore health.

      Sounds farfetched? It’s not at all. It is simply the power of nutritional cleansing.  

      What is nutritional cleansing?*

      You may have already heard about nutritional cleansing, or have known a friend who said they were “on a cleanse.” It’s certainly not new, and by no means “new age“, and it wasn’t invented last year or even last century. In fact it’s just an essential part of basic human biology that we have left out of our modern health equation.  

      Not many people know about cleansing as the most effective tool for recovering health. But the good news is that more and more nutritionists and doctors are recommending a cleansing diet because they are recognizing the role that it plays in disease, symptoms, aches and pain.  

      *How does it work ?*

      Cleansing is the process of eliminating wastes and toxins from the cells, organs, and the bloodstream. This is done through a change to cleansing foods, eliminating processed sludge-producing foods, and adding a series of important cleansing skills to your daily regimen.

      If that sounds simple, it’s because it is.  

      *Why do I need cleansing?*

      A nutritional cleanse is akin to a human body oil change. People would never consider driving their car, decade after decade, without changing the oil, yet there is no concept in our culture for the need to do this to our own body vehicle. Nothing comes close —not drugs, surgery, vitamin pills, supplements, expensive therapy, whatever —to its potential for cellular repair. A cleansing diet builds a foundation of health and vitality that most people will only dream of.

      And no, this program is not a fast, or a starvation program, or something difficult where you are hungry and deprived. Nor is it “taking vitamins“. This cleanse is a sane, food-based system that flushes the body with real food and concentrated nutrition throughout each day. The meals that you eat are delicious. You can eat as much as you want. The entire program is designed to help remove built-up metabolic waste, and then feed the cells re-mineralized, re-bacterialized, & re-enzymized nutrition.

      *Learn the health skills that last a life time*

      Imagine getting rid of a symptom or disease that you've been told is incurable or can only be fixed with prescription medication. How much better would your life be if you could get rid of the aches and pains and trade them for more energy, vitality, and a renewed zest for life? Would your life improve if you felt healthier than you have in years? Would you finally be able to start tackling some of your life dreams without feeling like you can't find the energy?

      How much have you already spent on prescription medications, doctor visits, and time missed at work?

      How many times have you passed up an opportunity to spend time with family or friends because you couldn't find the energy or were suffering from symptoms of illness?

      Do you really want to spend the rest of your life at the mercy of drug companies and skyrocketing prescription prices? If we told you there was a way to take back control of your health, reduce your medical expenses, and start living again, would you be interested?

           How 8 Glasses A Day Keeps Fat Away

      Incredible as it may seem, water is quite possibly the single most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off. Although most of us take for granted, water may be the only  true “magic potion” for permanent weight loss.

      Water suppresses the appetite naturally and helps the body
      metabolize stored fat. Studies have shown that a decrease in water intake will cause fat deposits to increase, while an
      increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits.

      Here’s why:  The kidneys can’t function properly without enough water.  When they don’t work to capacity, some of their load is dumped onto the liver. One of the liver’s primary functions is to metabolize stored fat into usable energy for the body.  But if the liver has to do some of the kidney’s work it can’t operate at full throttle.  As a result, it metabolizes less fat more fat remains stored in the body and weight loss stops.

      Drinking enough water is the best treatment for fluid retention. When the body gets less water,it perceives this as a threat to survival and begins to hold on to every drop.  Water is stored in extracellular spaces (outside the cell).  This shows up as swollen feet, legs and hands.

      Diuretics offer a temporary solution at best.  They force out stored water along with some essential nutrients.  Again, the body perceives a treat and will replace the lost water at the first opportunity.  Thus, the condition quickly returns.

      The best way to overcome the problem of water retention is to give your body what it needs—plenty of water.  Only then will stored water be released.

      If you have a constant problem with water retention, excess salt may be to blame.  Your body will tolerate sodium only in a certain concentration.  The more salt you eat the more water your system retains to dilute it.

      But getting rid of unneeded salt is easy—just drink more
      water.  As it’s forced through the kidneys it takes away excess sodium.

      The overweight person needs more water than a thin one.  Larger people have larger metabolic loads.  Since we know that water is the key to fat metabolism, it follows that the over weight person needs more water.

      Water helps to maintain proper muscle tone by giving muscles
      their natural ability to contract and by preventing dehydration.

      It also helps to prevent the sagging skin that usually follows weigh loss—shrinking cells are buoyed by water which plumps the skin and leaves it clear, healthy and resilient.

      Water helps rid the body of waste.  During weight loss, the body has a lot more waste to get rid of—all that metabolized fat must be shed.  Again, adequate water helps flush out the waste.

      Water can help relieve constipation.  When the body gets too
      little water, it siphons what it needs from internal sources.
      The colon is one primary source.  Result?  Constipation.  But when a person drinks enough water, normal bowel function usually returns.

      So far, some remarkable truths about water and weight loss have been  discovered :

         * The body will not function properly without enough

           water and can’t metabolize stored fat efficiently.

         * Retained water shows up as excess weight.

         * To get rid of excess water you must drink more water.

         * Drinking water is essential to weight loss.

      How much water is enough?  On the average, a person should drink 8-ounce glasses every day.  That’s about 2 quarts.  However, the overweight person needs one additional glass for every 25 pounds of excess weight.  The amount you drink also should be increased if you exercise briskly or if the weather is hot and dry.

      Water should preferably be cold.  It’s absorbed into the system more quickly than warm water.  And some evidence suggests that drinking cold water can actually help burn calories.  To utilize water most efficiently during weight loss, follow this schedule:

         Morning: 1 quart consumed over a 30-minute period.

         Noon: 1 quart consumed over a 30-minute period.

         Evening: 1 quart consumed between five and six o‘clock.

      When the body gets the water it needs to function optimally,
      it’s fluids are perfectly balanced.  When this happens, you have reached the “breakthrough point.”  What does this mean?

         * Endocrine-gland function improves.

         * Fluid retention is alleviated as stored water is lost.

         * More fat is used as fuel because the liver is free to

           metabolize stored fat.

         * Natural thirst returns.

         * There is a loss of hunger almost over night.

      If you stop drinking enough water, your body fluids will be
      thrown out of balance again, and you may experience fluid
      retention, unexplained weight gain and loss of thirst. To
      remedy the situation you’ll have to go back and force another “breakthrough.”
