Does Colonic Irrigation Work?

Friday, August 5th, 2011
01 colonic irrigation Does Colonic Irrigation Work?

Colonic Irrigation

The topic of detoxification and nutritional cleansing are common to the CleanseBenefits Blog.  Depending on their circumstances many people are willing to try anything to lose weight and/or improve their appearance…even procedures and systems that may create health concerns that negate or overtake any presumed benefits.  Some people may conduct a cost/benefit analysis of a potential cure for their problems and decide that the associated warnings or concerns are acceptable to them if it results in a thinner waistline

It seems silly, however, to utilize such a procedure or systems when it is proven to have no benefit, or if the benefit does not produce the desired effect.  U.S. scientists have determined that a longstanding “treatment” with a large number of supporters does not achieve the ends previously assumed.  Colonic Irrigation has long been touted as a means for detoxification and weight loss, but it turns out these claims are unfounded.  As a matter of fact, Colonic Irrigation is now believed to potentially cause serious health problems with little or no associated benefits.

Georgetown University

The procedure which involves flushing out the colon through a tube inserted into the rectum may lead to nausea, cramping, bloating, and in some cases renal failure and even death as determined by a study conducted by Georgetown University scientists.  The study went on to explain that colon cleansing products such as laxatives, teas, powders and capsules purport benefits that actually don’t exist.  

Of similar concern is that these procedures are quite often performed by non-medical personnel in spas and clinics.  The practitioners in these spas and clinics have been found to have limited, if any, training in the administration of these unnecessary and potentially dangerous procedures.  

Nutritional or full-body cellular cleansing is a safe alternative that has a medical study to back up its efficacy.  It is non-invasive and allows for a person with no medical background to use safely.  

Everyone has a choice to make here if weight loss and cleansing is the desired result.  It seems to be common sense to choose the alternative that has been proven to work safely.

Obesity tied to Brain Damage

Monday, April 18th, 2011

One of my favorite t-shirts of all time was posted by a friend on his face-book page.  The shirt reads, “My wife says I have ADD but…hey look!  A duck!”  I find great amusement in this t-shirt because it I believe it to be reflective of the

KentState Obesity tied to Brain Damage

Kent State University

 view of many wives towards their husbands.  We husbands generally have a limited capacity to multi-task, i.e. watch television, read a book, etc., and at the same time hear what our wives are trying to tell us.  Based upon a new study conducted by researchers at Kent State University in Ohio, the next time you miss something your wife says you may want to look down to the belly under the t-shirt to explain your lack of understanding and perception. 

The researchers tested the cognitive functions of volunteers suffering from obesity and compared these results to subjects at a healthy weight.  It was determined that obese people generally scored lower than the non-obese subjects.  In fact, 25% of the obese subjects scored low enough to be considered learning disabled

Even more astounding, the researchers determined that correcting the obesity problem, i.e. losing weight through various methods in order to achieve a healthy weight, may boost cognitive scores.  Subsequent to the initial study two-thirds of the obese study participants underwent weight-loss surgery and released an average of 50 pounds.  This weight-loss appeared to have a correlary effect of increasing test scores related to memory. 

Brain Obesity tied to Brain Damage

Cognitive Function

When I first started researching the study I felt it was possible that the lower test scores in obese people may be related to the amount of time that was spent eating as opposed to engaging in cognitive activities.  This led me to believe that test scores would remain the same for some time after the weight was lost.  However, the researchers used magnetic resonance imaging to scan the obese subjects brains.  They determined that there was actually physiological evidence that obesity has an adverse affect on the brain.  Researchers found indications of damage to the substance that surrounds and insulates nerve fibers which indicated that this substance is needed for optimal cognitive function

The ultimate take-away from the study is obesity robs sufferers of much more than their physical health.  Beyond the weight related physical diseases experienced by obese people, there is now a psychological component that negatively impacts their lives.  There are so many negatives associated with being obese that it becomes more critical every day for people to change their lives and lifestyles. 

I am not a purist.  I accept the fact that nutritional cleansing may not be for everyone.  I reject the idea that there are people who cannot follow the system; however, I do accept that there are those that simply don’t want to.  Nutritional cleansing does require some commitment and a leap of faith that something you have yet to try might actually work.  If my wife had not made that leap she would still be considered obese.  she would still be almost 70 pounds overweight.  We probably would not have a long happy life together.  

My wife and I feel a sense of obligation to help those who suffer from obesity and poor health.  We would love to talk to you about how nutrional cleansing and Isagenix changed our lives on so many levels.  If you would like to have a conversation with us then you can call toll free at 1-866-982-DIET (3438) or you can visit our web-site at http://www.cleansbenefits.com.

The Good Fortune of Nutritional Cleansing

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

What does a fortune cookie’s fortune have to do with nutritional cleansing?  I love oriental food.  Actually I am fascinated by it.  A chef is able to combine ingredients that many people normally don’t eat and blend them in a wayFortune Cookie The Good Fortune of Nutritional Cleansing that makes any entree appealing and desirable.  Vegetables like snap peas, water chestnuts, carrots, sprouts and the like are combined with unique spices and tasty sauces into an explosion of taste and flavor.  That is why I chose to have my favorite for lunch today…Kung Pao Chicken. 

After I finished my delicious meal I looked into the bottom of the bag and spoted the individually wrapped fortune cookie.  Because I am conscious of how many sweets I put into my mouth I will generally skip this dessert.  This does not mean that I skip the fortune.  Now I don’t actually believe in the fortune.  I don’t believe words written on a tiny slip of paper should be directing my life and guiding my decisions.  Yet I do find the fortunes amusing.  Today my fortune read, “There is no greater gift than good health.  Cherish it always.”  Like many of the fortunes contained in those folded yellow cookies, I was having a hard time understanding how these words predicted my future or were supposed to change my life.  Despite this fact I did find value in the passage. 

I believe with all of my heart that good health is one of the greatest blessings that can be bestowed on a man or

woman.  Good health is the soil that a good life grows from.  With that knowledge it should be easy for you to understand why my wife and I are so passionate about Isagenix and nutritional cleansing.  The many Isagenix products, paks and systems are the means by which I can bring a complete stranger closer to a healthier life.

The challenge has always been to convince the receiver of this good news that my intentions are pure and that I am not simply trying to “sell” them something.  This challenge is true for any network marketerMulti-level marketing is very different than any other type of sales.  We are not offereing everyday items.  We are tasked with convincing someone that they need something they never needed before.  Furthermore, we must make our pitch in unconventional locations and circumstances.  

A lightbulb salesman has a built in customer base.  He does not have to convince someone that they need to buy lightbulbs.  Instead, he simply needs to convince the buyer that they should buy their lightbulbs from him.  Network marketers must convince the buyer of one of three things. 

1.  The product or service they offer is “better” than what can be found in a traditional store

2.  The product or service they offer is “cheaper” than similar products bought through more conventional means. 

3.  The product or service is so unique or special that they only reason the buyer hasn’t bought it before is because they were unaware of its existence. 

Isagenix and nutritional cleansing fall into the third category.  Isagenix has provided such a unique health and weight loss solution to me and my family that I cannot help but tell others about how it has changed our lives.  I cannot

IsaLean Shake

 compare it to any other product or service because what it offers is so special and profound that such a comparison would not do it justice.  It is not simply a nutritional supplement.  It is certainly not a weight loss program like so many others on the market.  Finally, the IsaLean Shake is not your typical athletes meal replacement.  It is all of these things and so much more.  We would love the opportunity to tell everyone reading this blog how it has changed our lives…and how it could change yours.

The Price We are Willing to Pay to be Thin and “Healthy”

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Most Americans watch television on a fairly regular basis.  Among the commercials for Bud Light Beer, Geico Insurance, and Taco Bell are advertisements for prescription medications, medical products and medical

Geico Gecko

 procedures.  These commercials usually start out innocently enough informing us of the products purpose and efficacy.  With the same cheery voice-over however, much of the commercial is spent telling us, the consumer all the ways in which the product may harm us…or even kill us.  It was not that long ago that I was listening to a commercial about a prescription medication for depression that may cause suicidal thoughts for the people who use it. 

These products sell, in my opinion, for one of two reasons.  First, the condition the products purports to cure is so severe that the user does a cost benefits analysis and determines the risk does not outweigh the potential for relief.  Second, the user is so desperate for a solution that they ignore the associated hazards.  There are several examples of this in the health and wellness field. 

The HCG Diet is a fairly recent addition to the weight loss arsenal…at least in the United States.  The HCG Diet

HCG Diet Kits The Price We are Willing to Pay to be Thin and Healthy

HCG Diet

works by tricking the body into believing that it is pregnant.  The HCG Hormone causes the body to mobilize fat to feed the fetus while reducing hunger.  Along with receiving injections the diet requires that you maintain a 500 calorie per day diet.  First off, I would argue that no diet that limits you to 500 calories per day could be healthy for you.  In addition, pregnancy is considered to be a disease state.  It increases morbidity and mortality in women…now, how bad do you want to be thin?  Ultimately, the program fails for many because you can’t stay with it forever.  Many doctors address this issue by starting the program all over again.  Do you see a problem here? 

Another example is a new technique developed by doctors to use ultrasound to zap fat cells (http://www.foxnews.com/health/2011/03/07/scientists-use-ultrasound-blast-away-fat-cells/.  Essentially your fat cells are killed with a high-intensity focused ultrasound along with another treatment that freezes fat cells.  The promise is that you can achieve weight loss without surgery (sounds positive!).  What you might not realize is that if you kill off the fat cells in your stomach and you start to gain weight you could begin to store fat around your heart and liver…still sound like a good idea? 

We are a nation of people looking for the short-cut.  We want to cut out the middle man to achieve success.  We are willing to do almost anything to achieve our goals related to fitness and appearance.  This may work well in business,

 but rarely is it a good idea when it comes to our bodies.  There is a reason the health and diet section of the bookstores have new books every day.  Everyone is looking for a solution to their health and obesity problems with some new cure that requires little effort.  The bottom line is that the solution is what it has always been…good nutrition.  It is what brought my wife and I to nutritional cleansing and replenishing.  It is what keeps us using the system.  It offers high grade nutrition while cleansing the body of impurities.  We have continued for the last four years to experience success and we see no reason to believe the system will ever fail us. 

If you would like to speak with us we would love to hear from you.  We believe in nutritional cleansing and replenishing with all our hearts and spread the word whenever given the opportunity.  If you would like to do some research on your own you can visit our web-site at http://www.cleansebenefits.com, or you can call us at 1-866-982-3438.

Investing in Your Health With Nutritional Cleansing

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

My wife and I talk to people about nutritional cleansing and replenishing (Isagenix) every chance we get.  We believe in Isagenix so much and want to help as many people as we can that it takes little to get us started.  One of the most common arguments we get in response is that Isagenix is just too expensive.  You may find it doesn’t fit into your budget but there are several considerations that must be examined before such a conclusion is made.  These considerations may very well change your mind about investing in your health

We make decisions every day about the purchases we make.  Very often we make decisions that are not fiscallycaribbean view Investing in Your Health With Nutritional Cleansing sound but, in the end, make us feel good for various reasons.  Maybe you go to a nice restaurant and buy an expensive dinner.  Maybe you go to  the car dealership and buy the car that is more money  than you intended on spending.  Maybe you go on a Caribbean vacation that you put on your credit card just because you have never been there.  I don’t deny anyone from treating themselves well.  I think we all deserve something special every once in a while.  But consider this…when was the last time you treated your body?  In other words, how much are you willing to invest for a healthier you or a better quality of life?  Your health maybe the greatest treasure you will ever possess. 

It appears that many who research Isagenix see the retail price of the programs and without exploring further assume that this potential solution for their obesity and/or health problem is out of their reach.  There are ways that we can show you how to purchase Isagenix products at wholesale prices.  Purchasing the Isagenix 30-Day Cleansing and Fat-Burning System with auto-ship as an associate (a designation that carries no obligation) will save you about $114.00 when compared to the retail price.

Another consideration is that the Isagenix IsaLean Shake is a meal replacement program.  In other words, instead of supplementing your daily breakfast and lunch with a shake you are actually replacing that meal.  As unbelievable as it may seem, investing in an Isagenix 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System can save you money on your monthly food bills.  To demonstrate this comparison I have included the following flyer: 

Isagenix Savings Investing in Your Health With Nutritional CleansingThe money saving potential has become even more likely in the last several months.  In an article from March 16, mixed%20vegetables Investing in Your Health With Nutritional Cleansing2011 Foxnews.com reported that in the last 30 days alone wholesale food prices jumped more than in nearly two years.  Food prices increased by 3.9 percent over the course of the month caused largely by a sharp rise in the cost of vegetables (it is tragic that the food that is the best for us, is the least subsidized and therefore the most expensive).  Ultimately, the increase in food prices can be tied to the increase in energy costs.  The price of gasoline has gone up 3.7% which means it costs more to bring the food to your table.

Finally, the liberal compensation plan offered by Isagenix has allowed us to supplement our income.  We are able to offset and exceed the cost of our product through our compensation from the company.  If this opportunity interests you we can help you to start your own at home business that may help you pay for your Isagenix products, programs, paks and systems.  I can’t guarantee that you will experience the same incredible success we have, but we would be happy to tell you how we have worked our business.  The Isagenix compensation plan is structured in such a way that your success is our success.  Therefore, it is in our best interest to prom0te and support your business as well.   

Tamara and I would love the opportunity to talk to you more about how Isagenix has not only improved our health, but also has helped us to control our grocery bills.  If you would like to find out more then you can call us at 1-866-982-DIET (3438).  If you would like to do your own research you can go to our web-site at http://www.cleansebenefits.com

The Hidden Stressors of Obesity

Friday, March 11th, 2011

In a recent health article on FoxNews.com it was suggested that the stressors associated with obesity go far beyond health risks such as heart disease and diabetes.  The fact of the matter is that the stigma of obesity in

BigBellyREX 468x310 The Hidden Stressors of Obesity

Obesity in America

 our culture adds psychological pressures that further compromise a persons ability to achieve their health and wellness goals.  The fact that a person challenged by weight issues feels judged or discriminated against creates negative feelings that can actually cause a decline in physical health.

For anyone who has read this blog in the past you know my feelings on this subject.  I do not believe that it is right to judge someone based upon their appearance or level of physical fitness.  My Christian belief’s tell me that I am no better than anyone else and have no right to ridicule or discriminate against another person.  This does not mean that we should ignore the fact that someone maybe slowly killing themselves as a  result of their poor nutrition and fitness choices.  Positive change will only come about by first recognizing that  a problem exists and then by supporting that person to the best of your ability. 

The weight issues that Tamara and I experienced happened before we even realized what was occuring.  We both found ourselves obese and neither of us was very happy.  I didn’t have to tell Tamara she was overweight and I heart attack The Hidden Stressors of Obesitydidn’t need anyone to tell me about my problem either.  The only point I ever made to Tamara was that I was concerned about her health.  I didn’t want to be raising two kids by myself…and I certainly did not want to lose my wife to a heart attack or diabetes (both are prevalent on her side of the family).  I was supportive by telling her that she would always be my “standard of beauty” and that I would never compare her to other women.  Tamara, however, knew that something needed to be done as did I.  

Our initial efforts to solve our obesity problems took different paths (mine was focused primarily in the gym and hers was through trying various diets).  It was not until we discovered nutritional cleansing and replenishing (Isagenix) that we found our personal solutions. 

Ultimately, my point is this.  People should not be judging those people with weight issues; but, obese people have obligations as well.  The idea that the world should simply accept the fact that we are the fattest nation in the world and getting fatter all the time is just not going to work.  We all need to work a little harder.  If you are overweight I don’t want you to be stressed as I think that only compounds an eating problem.  But you have to do something.
