10 Day Acai Berry Cleanse

I did it! and it did just what I figured it would… it cleaned me out!

I feel happier, healthier, cleaner and lighter.

I highly recommend  a cleanse here and there.

They don’t need to be expensive and they don’t have to last a long time. This one was only 10 days. Even if you don’t really care about being a health junk junkie haha you can and would benefit from a cleanse once in a while. It helps clean you out, you skin becomes clear and you feel more energized. Try it if you haven’t and you will see for yourself the many benefits of doing a cleanse.

I am not indorsing this product and I am not being paid to promote it. Just wanted to let everyone know I did a cleanse for 10 days, it was easy, 2 pills a day, it was fast, powerful and gentle just like the bottle says, it was inexpensive 12 bucks for a bottle of 40 pills. The pills weren’t gigantic and hard to swallow and had literally no taste but I think the main thing for me was that it was GENTLE no stomach cramps or tummy aches while I took it.


What cleanses have you done?

I have done my fair share and this one was pretty easy. I plan on sharing my experience in the future with other cleanses I have done.

Ups and Downs of Juicing

The Ups

One of the most beneficial parts of juicing is the tremendous amounts of nutrients, probiotics, enzymes, water and oxygen in each serving. However, since the juicing machine separates out the fiber in your fruits and vegetables, juices are digested in just minutes, and these nutrients become much more efficient and absorb quickly. This is a highly beneficial for people with immune system disorders such as cancer, chronic fatigue and AIDS.

Juicing also gives you digestive system a much needed break. With all of the processed foods that we consume yearly, this will help cleanse your body of many unwanted toxins.  Juices send a quick source of fuel into the bloodstream and allow the digestive organs to not work as hard. The high level of energy that it would normally take for digestion can now be used for cleansing and rebuilding the body.

Juicing can also be used to help or relieve constipation, headaches, stress and moodiness that some women experience before their periods, due to its balancing effects.Juicing2

The Downs

The first thing to consider is that juicing can be more on the expensive side. A good juicer can easily run up to $300 and more, and the large amounts of fruits and vegetables that need to be purchased can add up, not to mention the time spent to prepare and clean up after, can be a difficult task for anyone.

However, more important is the fact that most juices have a high concentration of natural sugars and therefore feed yeast and other opportunistic organisms. They also don’t combine well, and if they are eaten with proteins or starches, they can cause digestion problems like fermentation and gas.

The most important rule to consider before juicing is making sure that the colon has been detoxified and that there are significant amounts of good bacteria in the digestive tract. If using any high-sugar fruit, there should be no symptoms of yeast overgrowth at all, as the natural sugars from the fruit will feed it and allow the yeast to stay in control in the digestive tract.

Juicing can be very beneficial if one is ready to follow some simple rules.  However, if you have a issue with blood sugar levels then stick to a low-sugar juice of mainly green vegetables and spices (like ginger or basil), and use a green apple for a touch of sweetness.

Fight Off Body Odor With Vegetables And Fruit

Nobody likes bad body odor.  Most of us go to any lengths to try and cover it up with creams, lotions, deodorants and perfumes.  But what most of us fail to realize is that most of the products we are using to cover up the bad smells are actually impacting our body in a negative way.  Majority of the popular brands to “deodorize” us contain an aluminum base and paraben.  Research has shown that absorption through the skin of such substances plays a role in an elevated Alzheimer’s risk and may also lead to a higher risk of breast cancer.bo2

One key area of focus involves choline, a nutrient that Oregon State University researchers identified as an “unpleasant odor-producing culprit”. Diets low in choline can help reduce bad body odor.

Vegetables are low in this nutrient overall, however, the ones with lowest choline have been identified as raw cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes, kale and carrots.  While fruits with low choline levels include pears, pineapple, watermelon, strawberries and bananas.

Also, fresh citrus fruits, such as oranges and lemons, are considered especially effective in fighting body odor. A New York City dermatologist and internist has said that “the acids in citrus fruits help flush water through your body. And because citrus also contains fiber, they move through your system slowly and flush out toxins that contribute to body odors.”

Another study showed that people with a no red meat diet had a significantly lower body odor and was deemed more pleasant a smell.

Top 5 Foods To Help Get Rid Of Excess Belly Fat

Although research has shown and proven that excess belly fat is linked to high blood pressure, heart disease and even premature death, millions of Americans remain on the same path to obesity.  Certainly getting adequate exercise is helpful to shedding inches and getting healthy, there are dietary changes that you can make to help fight off that unwanted spare tire.  Here are the top five foods to eat to help get rid of excess belly fat:


Cabbage, kale, broccoli and other cruciferous veggies

These vegetables contain natural chemicals called phytonutrients, specifically, indole-3-carbinol, or I3C. This particular phytonutrient helps counteract the effects of xenoestrogens, which essentially are chemicals that we consume that act like estrogen. cruciferous veggies

Xenoestrogens derive from a wide variety of sources, including plastics, air pollutants, pesticides, herbicides, even meat from animals that have consumed hormones as part of their “fattening-up” diets they are on at the dairy. Once in the body, they can cause an overload of estrogen that can play a pivotal role in the development of belly fat. I3C works as a kind of industrial scrubbing system, helping to counteract and detoxify xenoestrogens so they can’t cause harmful effects.

Eating lots of cruciferous vegetables naturally increases your levels of I3C to boost your body’s ability to protect itself against the harmful effects of xenoestrogens and help avoid belly fat from forming.



AvocadosAvocados are full of healthy fats, and pretty much everyone knows that that’s good news for your heart. But they also help satisfy food cravings for fatty foods, helping avoid “sugar swings” that can result in binging and unhealthy snacking. The fatty content of avocados also helps manage the hormones that control your appetite and help you feel full longer, lowering your appetite overall.

Finally, their high vitamin and fiber contents make them ideal for those trying to lose weight, ensuring that you get the nutrients you need to stay healthy.



Lentils are one of a group of foods that contain digestion-resistant starches. These are starches that resist being broken down and absorbed by the body, which means that they include all the benefits of a high-fiber diet, with better digestion, eliminating the potential downsides of other types of starches that wind up being stored as fat. And because they’re not absorbed, they help you feel full longer, decreasing your appetite.Lentils

Especially for first time users, consuming large quantities of lentils (and many other legumes and beans) may make you think that you’re actually gaining belly mass. That’s because, taken in larger quantities, lentils can cause bloating associated with gas (the magical fruit). Most modern diets don’t include a large amount of high-fiber foods. As a result, our bodies “forget” how to break down fiber efficiently and quickly, and a buildup of gas occurs.

To avoid this gassy reaction, start out consuming these high-fiber foods in smaller amounts, increasing the amount you eat over time as your body ramps up its natural ability to break down fiber more efficiently. If lentils and beans aren’t your cup of tea, try chickpeas, bananas and even potatoes contain resistant starches too.


Kiwi fruit

Kiwi fruitKiwi fruit is amazingly high in vitamin C. In fact, each fruit contains more than a day’s recommended daily allowance. Vitamin C helps the body form a metabolite known as carnitine, which in turn helps the body burn fat. In fact, a study by researchers in Arizona found that vitamin C supplements help the body increase its fat-burning capacity fourfold.




Green tea

Green teaMultiple studies have shown that chemicals called “catechins” that are found in green tea help promote the body’s ability to burn fat and they do it without the need for caffeine. Most people will get the greatest benefits by drinking several cups of green tea per day.

Two Rainforest Herbs With Potential To Kill Cancer

Cancer, or also known as a malignant tumor is one of the leading causes of death in society today.  It was responsible for more then 8.2 million deaths in 2012 alone.  The most common forms being lung cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal cancer and stomach cancer.

Many cancers can be avoided with a proper diet such as: eating more vegetables, fruits and whole grains, eating less meat and refined carbohydrates, maintaining a healthy weight.  Also by not smoking, exercising, minimizing direct sunlight exposure.

In some way or another, cancer has affected us all through family, friends, loved ones, acquaintances and so forth.  Many people look for an alternative way to deal with and reverse the effects of cancer.  We should take a closer look at 2 rainforest herbs that can stimulate the proper systems in our body to combat the deadly effects of cancer.

Cat’s Claw

Also known as una de gato, cats’s claw is a large woody vine that grows in the Amazon rainforest, its name comes from its hook-like thorns that grow along the vine and resembles the claws of a cat.catsclaw

Cat’s claw has been used in Peru and Europe since the early 90’s as an adjunctive treatment for cancer, as well as other diseases that target the immune system. It has several groups of plant chemicals that account for its action, the most studied group being oxidole alkaloids, which have been documented to have immune-stimulant and anti-leukemic properties.

Studies show and document that cat’s claw has a positive effect against cancer that includes:

  • Italian researchers reported in a 2001 in vitro study that cat’s claw directly inhibited the growth of a human breast cancer cell line by 90%.
  • Swedish researchers documented that it inhibited the growth of lymphoma and leukemia cells in vitro in 1998.
  • Reports on Keplinger’s observatory trials showed that cancer patients taking cat’s claw in conjunction with traditional therapies, such as chemotherapy and radiation, reported fewer side effects like hair loss, weight loss, nausea and secondary infections.
  • Subsequent researchers have shown that cat’s claw can aid in DNA cellular repair and prevent cells from mutating, and can also help prevent loss of white blood cells and immune cell damage caused by many chemotherapy drugs.

Cat’s claw has also been shown to kill viruses, fight free radicals and reduce inflammation.


Graviola is a small, upright evergreen tree that can grow about 5-6 meters high with large, glossy, dark green leaves.graviola

Chemicals called Annonaceous acetogenins, found in the leaf, stem, bark and fruit seeds, of the graviola have been confirmed by three separate research groups to have significant anti-tumorous properties and selective toxicity against various types of cancer cells (without harming healthy cells), at very low doses.

Studies show and document that graviola has a positive effect against cancer that includes:

  • In 1997, Purdue University published information which found that this novel set of chemicals in graviola not only are effective in killing tumors that have proven resistant to anti-cancer agents but also seem to have an affinity for such resistant cells. This means that those cells with multi-drug resistance (MDR) can effectively be killed by acetogenins, with reports that they preferentially destroyed MDR cells by blocking the transfer of ATP — the chief source of cellular energy — into them.
  • In a 1976 plant-screening program by the National Cancer Institute, graviola leaves and stems showed toxicity against cancer cells, and specific acetogenins have been reported to be selectively toxic in vitro to the following types of tumor cells: lung carcinoma, human breast, prostate adenocarcinoma, pancreatic carcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, liver cancer cell lines, human lymphoma and MDR human breast adenocarcinoma.
  • Researchers in Taiwan reported in 2003 that the main graviola acetogenin, annonacin, was highly toxic to ovarian, cervical, breast, bladder, and skin cancer at very low dosages.


Graviola has also been known to kill bacteria, parasites and viruses as well as stimulate digestion and relieve depression.
