If you think you know it all, then you will never learn and can never be helped,
So recently been away with an old pal who is a bright chap but is a tad closed to new ideas. I have been away on a number of courses in recent times and read a lot of books. However each time i informed him about stuff like body toxicity,acid levels or detox he said how come nobody knows about it or he has seen some doctor on tv saying detox doesn't exist.
Just because things are not common knowledge doesn't mean it's not true: the examples of how little we know are endless.
- Agriculture(or treatment of crops and refinement of foods) is the cause of most of the poor health in this country. The meat we eat has more chemicals and toxins than our veg and fruit.
- Breakfast cereals are great for weight loss, untrue nearly all are high in sugar and have been refined which removes nutrition. Also you should really be having protein for breakfast.
- Flora proactive is good for weight loss, untrue your gut thinks margarine is plastic and doesn't function well once eaten.
- Stress is one of the biggest factors when it comes to getting fit or losing weight. Rather than changing your diet or training plan, have a stress reduction plan. Dont forget that exercise is stress too, loads of cardio for some people just isn't great.
- Your body is like a test tube, if it's alkali or neutral you will be healthy. However if your body is more acidic then germs, fungus and disease love to spread. Meat, coffee, fizzy drinks, energy drinks,pasta and wine etc are all acidic.
- Detox is definately essential in this day and age, 10,000 generations being hunter gatherers and only 10 generations of agriculture. Your bodies detox powerhouse the liver hasn't developed well enough to clean all the added chemicals in the food we consume, you need to help it by eating certain foods and drinks.
- If you have an unhealthy mind(if you are one of these haters) your brain and body recieve this as threat and stress. The combination of releasing the stress hormone cortisol(fat storage) and being in the anger nervous system(sympathetic)will ensure you are not rebuilding or restoring damaged tissue. The chances are you will live a short unhealthy life folks, love your fellow man or die hating.
