Detox Group Three

Determined Detoxers!

Detoxers

Wow, what energy and enthusiasm for our third group!  Great results with weight loss up to 17 pounds for one member and everyone else seeing weight loss, improved mental/emotional, less body pain, better sleep and amazed at how easy to stay committed and enjoy the results.

This group of detoxers really are taking in the education and the holistic approach to getting well and changing eating / lifestyle habits to make a long term difference in their vitality and well being!  Tuesday nights discussion was on stress and a nice discussion on ways to deal with thoughts, perceptions, emotions, the unconscious, and even energy.  Attention to all these are needed to change our “reactions” to “response” that in turn creates a powerful  shift in bio chemistry for positive impact on our body.

The awareness of emotion as a form of heart information and through techniques to access the unconscious were examples of ways to provide an avenue of self awareness and compassion for a story we all hold about our self.  That story has been internalized and habituated to become the life and body we have.  The way out of challenges is to start accessing that story with compassion and so the healing begins.

We also emphasized the importance of intentionally creating a new story! A story of how we want to feel and what we want in our life.  This is a way to empower the heart and unconscious to be fully expressed and have new template to create from!  Pray with the belief it will be answered … requires a stepping out in faith but gets easier as we see that life responds to our intention when we put in place the practice/ repetition/ supports to keep it in mind.

Stress relief is about intending a new attitude, a new response,  and new habits… to the life we are already living.  “My day flows with ease, efficiency, fun, effectiveness and prosperity” … helped me feel the same work was easier and better over the last few years.  I say and said this every morning on the way to work and I’ve changed.  I am not tired in the evening, structured my day a little differently, better caught up with paperwork and making more income!  Say affirmations/ intentions/ One Command/ EFT like a prayer and belief of gratitude for prayers answered!  Works for me and others in the group :)

We discussed epigenetics from the work of Bruce Lipton and how gene expression is really based on the influence of epigenes.  Our epigenes are  predisposed to influence the expression of genes in a direction of health or disease from the nutrition of our parents.  The great medicine for optimizing epigene influence over genes for health….. are vegetables with all those fabulous methyl groups!  We can’t change our genes but how they are expressed for health is dramatically influenced by our personal diet and lifestyle!  Amazing nature cures and was designed especially for our well being :)

You have sole ownership of your vision. And the Universe will give you what you want within your vision. What happens with most people is that they muddy their vision with “reality”. Their vision becomes full of not only what they want but what everybody else thinks about what they want, too. Your work is to clarify and purify your vision so that the vibration that you are offering can then be answered.

8 Ways to Improve Your Salad Dressing
What’s a salad without a dressing?It’s like Bert without Ernie, a burger without a bun, Sunday without football on TV. A salad is not a salad without some good stuff drizzled on top.Food manufacturers realized this long ago, and today, entire supermarket aisles are dedicated to salad dressings and toppings. Unfortunately, some dressings do more harm than good. Here are a few tips to help you make the best choices.
1. Make your own dressing
This is a no-brainer. In most parts of the world, it’s unthinkable to buy salad dressing. People prepare the dressing as part of the salad making process. It’s as easy as mixing 1 part oil, 1 part lemon/vinegar, and adding salt and pepper to taste. From there, you can build your dressing with additional herbs and spices. There’s no shortage of recipes.

The following tips are for prepared dressings:
2. Decrease the serving size and calories
The standard serving for salad dressing is 2 tablespoons, ranging from 50 to 200 and more calories. An easy way to cut the calories is to use less dressing. Work the dressing into the salad until you can’t see any blobs of sauce, just a shiny coating all over the salad greens.

3. Don’t water down you salad
Many of the low-fat, or non-fat dressings are primarily water. You’re paying over $4.00 for a bottle of dressing, the least they could do is fill it up with a more expensive ingredient like fine olive oil. Also – why drown your greens after you’ve dried them up so nicely before serving?

4. A little bit of fat is not bad
Vitamins A, D, E, and K, found in salad vegetables, are fat soluble. This means your body will be more likely to absorb them when they’re mixed with some oil.

5. Skip the toppings
They may add extra crunch and flavor, but the caloric and sodium contribution of bacon bits and croutons almost negate the purpose of the salad – a nutrient dense addition to your day.

6. Avoid added sugars
Some dressings can get really tangy, so a bit of added sweetener rounds out the flavor remarkably. The problem is that in many cases, manufacturers add too much sugar. For example, almost 25% of Wishbone’s Red Wine Vinaigrette Salad Dressing calories come from sugar. In other dressings, the sugar content can reach up to 50% of the calories!

7. Salty?
One of the challenges with salad dressing is the sodium content, which can be higher than 500mg per serving. That’s close to 25% of the daily maximum. Look for 300mg per serving, or less.

8. Avoid Phosphoric Acid
Many dressings use phosphoric acid (E338), an artificial additive that provides a tangy taste for a much cheaper price than lemons. Phosphoric acid is widely used in soft drinks. Some studies have linked it to lowering bone density.  Bottom Line

Salad dressing great way to increase vegetable consumption.  Choose wisely or make your own!

Sasha provided great new recopies and we all agreed to try a dish from legumes soaked over night, blended to make a sauce or dressing!  Let’s help each other expand and step our of our  boxes with cooking.  Our bodies are ready and appreciating!

Next week final class.  We will discuss reintroduction of foods, how to identify foods, how often can we eat “normal” food and and how do we keep going on this path to healing as well as having more fun and making it easy!

Thanks, Dr. Lynn
