One of my passions and focuses of study is natural healing on the physical side.
While opinions differ widely from practitioner to practitioner regarding what the best healing diet is for differing conditions, one thing that is very clear is that one of the major culprits of all physical dis-ease--including cancer--is sugar.
What's amazing about our bodies is that once you give up something like white and processed sugar completely, you no longer crave it. In fact, you'll no longer crave sweets in general. Fruit will taste sweeter than a candy bar ever did. I'm telling you this from personal experience.
So I invite you to join me in a 30-day NO WHITE/PROCESSED SUGAR CHALLENGE! That's right, NOTHING with white or processed sugar for 30 days! (This includes corn syrup and any artificial sweeteners). If you must use a sweetener, try any of the following much healthier options).
- coconut sugar - maple sugar - raw honey - maple syrup - stevia - date sugar (or chopped dates)
IMPORTANT: Please don't consume "sugar free" products, as they all contain dangerous and very unhealthy laboratory-created sugar substitutes, like aspartame. Also, agave syrup seems to be as unhealthy as high-fructose corn syrup.
In fact, the best thing you could do is stop using sweeteners altogether, or at least cut back drastically during this 30-day period. Once brain stops feeling the instant high it gets from the taste of sugar, you stop craving it. And it only takes a few weeks.
If you complete the challenge, you'll find that by the end of the 30 days you no longer crave sweets. You might experience palpable health benefits, like more energy, better mood, better sleep, losing weight, increased libido, etc. And you're doing your body a huge favor in the long-run. Your chances of developing cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases decreases immensely!
When you feel sugar cravings, reach for a healthy snack instead, with some protein. A piece of organic fruit and a handful of organic nuts is ideal.
(And if you have a hiccup and eat something with white/processed sugar in it, don't fret, just enjoy it and go back to the challenge...)
