I was hoping to do weekly updates on the “journey” but apparently time got the better of me (AGAIN!). So, it goes like this…
I shifted house on Monday, from campus to private accommodation for a little while. I’m not really sure of my next move for now to be honest. I think I will weigh it all up (literally) in the next few weeks. However, for now I am noticing some interesting observations in relation to my new health regime, which is a slow process in that.. I’ve been inactive for a long time and neglecting my health, burning the candle at both ends, running the online group, trying to build the website, returning to university and trying to remember how to study, and trying to get results in and pass. I must have been overambitious when I booked into the campus with the share accommodation. 6 people with a common lounge and kitchen and most of them young with little focus on studies can be a bit challenging for a person reaching their half century life milestone, but I gave it a shot. It wasn’t the worst experience in my life but it was certainly interesting, and offered more than the one challenge.
Anyway, I decided as most people are aware to start addressing all those ignored health conditions that I have been carrying for a while and neglecting. (The promoters say make a list and then observe how the product affects these conditions – better or worse). So I did, and surprised myself, frankly if I was a car I am well over due for an overhaul and service in a multitude of ways, I’d probably be running on dirty fuel stuck at the bottom of the tank and the car engine would be coughing and spluttering as it rolled along with the poor fuel I was filling it with (lots of sugar – lets be real I was having many sugar cravings), and a few takeaways as my budget allowed, and then there was the hit and miss meals when I was under pressure and time poor. Cereal kind of filled the spot. Anyway, this is what I have reminded myself of with my list:
Muscle and tendon damage – right ankle and right shoulder.
Teeth – need fixing,
Skin – definitely not as hydrated as it could or should be, starting to show signs of wear and tear (sadly)., blemishes, and declining elasticity. In fact as I peered in the mirror this morning I am noticing new lines around my mouth and also a few trenches that appear to be deepening between my eyebrows. Frown lines I believe they are called, which incidentally I resent that as a terminology – I see them as “study lines”.. they are from deep concentration and processing and absorption of knowledge – not necessarily from frowning and glaring at the world all the time but apparently they can give a “fierce edge” to the appearance. So I can’t wait to start on the skin care and find out what happens with them with the product (all organic – Mother Nature apparently has everything covered!!)
Hair – going grey and dry as a bone, all those years of dying them and the toxins in the dye no doubt have had its impact.
Eyes – well yes I need to get them checked again. Apparently I am borderline in need of bifocals the last time I went in, and I have pterygium and frankly – why do they need to put the writing on medicine bottles so small? I wouldn’t normally think it was a problem except for when I gave my little grandson a daily dose in one hit. (Frankly who would have thought paracetamol could be taken in 0.1 measures? I just saw the number #1. Anyone would have thought I’d tried to murder him the response I had to deal with *sigh*.
Feet and Nails – seen better days. Share bathrooms haven’t helped.
Liver – well I don’t know. But frankly every test I’ve had on liver function for years has come up with “poor liver function”. I have a thyroid condition, so I recall years ago being told..” take the thyroid replacement medication or you will die”. Side effect being – the replacement chemical has some kind of build-up in it that occurs in the liver and results in low liver function, which apparently causes fatigue. I’ve been living with it all for so long I fail to pay attention to it anymore.
Kidneys and Adrenals – well once again who knows? But bottom line apparently stress is carried in these and I have been dealing with a lot of stress for a long time what with family, and just life in general at times.
I think I have decided to go for a medical in the next weeks for a total overhaul and find out what’s “working well” and what isn’t. This way I can full measure the effectiveness of the product.
So that all said and done, I’ve been taking the vitamins, mineral and antioxidant supplements for the last week. Apparently by doing this and drinking heaps of water I am effectively “detoxing and flushing” the system and helping my liver and kidneys up the ante.. Which can’t be a bad thing. The other thing apparently is by taking this vitamin supplement which is more a “nutritional supplement” I am “nourishing and nurturing my cellular levels”. This supplement is molecular weighted for best absorption (scientifically evidenced which appeals to my cynical old gray brain cells – the beauty of this is – while I study at university, I have access to data bases, and can actually pull up the PDF scientific research from other researchers that support the claims.. because if there is one thing I really can’t stand, its marketing BS). Anyway apparently we need to take minerals to be able to absorb the “nutrients”. The mineral drink, my friends looks likea muddy glass of water. I watch those TV adverts now of the people ein Africa, with a stern sad voice saying “would you feed this to your child?” I see the particles floating in it and think to myself “well almost but not quite – my drink is missing the floaties”. Funnily enough the drink actually doesn’t have a flavour, which I enjoy, and it doesn’t smell and it’s easy to swallow down. It contains something like 37 minerals and enzymes and is made from moss grown in the Swiss alps. (That’s the other thing I like about this product – it is completely environmentally responsible and uses tried and tested organic products that have been molecularly weighted for best absorption! Amazing!!.
I can’t say I have got to the stage where the weight is falling off me, but I definitely can say that I am starting to feel the waist band around my jeans loosen.. which is not a bad thing at all.. they were starting to get pretty tight before. I’m told that this is a by-product of healthy body. If the body is healthy and being nourished (as opposed to fed food of any calibre), it actually has the capacity to remove and eliminate toxins in a healthy way, and all that fat around the waist is actually toxic, so its starting to shift. Apparently also – if I combine this with a bit of exercise and some healthy eating – I will shed this weight very quickly.
I’m starting to be hooked on the product to be honest.. I’m going to order the skin care next and then probably the products in the programme for a major detox and flush.. all it really is, is a bunch of additional products specifically designed (holistically and organically), to detox and nourish the liver, kidneys and adrenals, and the gut system to allow them the capacity for best function, AND I have been told by others that have used this product that you can lose masses of weight very quickly without ending up with the loose skin sag, (that’s gotta be a bonus at my age). At the same time what I really like about the people that retai land distribute this stuff – is they don’t actually tell you “you need to go and buy this product it will work well”. They actually try and restrain you from blowing all your cash on it. I almost went and bought the detox stuff the other day, but those that know better said “NO.. wait and see! You might not need it! You have only been on the product for a week – why waste your money? So I am going to give it 9 weeks on this one and see how it pans out, if it looks like it needs a bit of a “kick start”. Then I will go to the other product. I saw recently one lady has done a testimonial that she lost 27 kg in something like 12 weeks.. pretty amazing stuff. Naturally I was a bit sceptical.. so I was more impressed by the lady that looked like she lived in a rather large marquis before starting on the product and who is now down to this tinsy little “ I can wear glamour dresses at cocktail parties” size.. and apparently she has maintained it for two years. I am impressed.
Then there is the guy who decided he wanted to get his “man body” sorted out, with his pecs etc.. he decided that he wanted to lose some fat and lard around his midriff. His before shots (taken in front of his bathroom mirror in his boxers I might add), show a guy that is not too unfit to be honest.. yes a little bit of puffiness under some low level man boobs.. but hardly anything to get depressed about. But the after shots (which was taken about 12 weeks later, show a man whose got major “guns” happening, pecs and abs sticking out like no ones business. Frankly that kind of stud –muffin body isn’t necessarily the type of body I am attracted to BUT the capacity to be able to create the changes in a healthy way through the addition of organically harvested nutrients, minerals and proteins is pretty darn amazing. Anyway I heard him speaking specifically about how he managed to get the look happening, at a webinar I was watching. Forgot the protein, I have no desire for abs and guns, but give me the svelte figure baby, with limited physical exertion and I will be there like a rocket.
Ahhh well – stay tuned for the next update folks. IN the meantime I need to be making a concerted effort to include more water in my diet. I AM drinking heaps of it, but at the same time my poor liver and adrenals have copped a battering for many years now. I did make an effort with the lemon water historically – but when a person takes a long term chemical product such as my thyroid replacement medication, it definitely is going to put some serious strain on the liver. IN fact the docs told me years ago that ultimately I would possibly need a liver transplant from the medication (not from being an excessive drinker or anything else – purely from taking prescription medication. As in their words – the options were if I didn’t take the medication I would die a lot sooner. I figured I wanted to live as long as possible as I had children to care for, so the options weren’t really there for me to do anything else at that time). Anyway – liver detox next I think! I’ll keep you informed!:) x
