Most people don’t understand their body. They eat whatever is convenient and tastes good.
There are 2 main foods to stay away from during your detox:
What is Gluten?
Gluten is the protein found in most baked goods, bread, cereal and most whole grains. It is the sticky substance that holds the food together.
The problem with gluten is many people can not break it down in the digestive system. When this happens the protein in the gluten cannot be broken down and used in the body so the person is eating calories but not able to utilize the nutrition in it.
Another problem is those with irritable bowel syndrome can become bloated, cramp and/or experience diarrhea when they eat gluten. The starches and sugar in gluten are fermented by intestinal bacteria causing this problem.
If you struggle with weight get, gluten out of your diet and feed your digestive system healthy foods it can breakdown with ease!

Why is dairy bad for you?
Wow, dairy lobbyists sure did a number of the American people!
Dairy is wonderful if you’re a calf aiming to be a 400-500 pound cow!
They say that you need to consume dairy to help keep your bones strong. Not true!
Did you know countries with lowest rates of dairy and calcium consumption (like those in Africa and Asia) have the lowest rates of osteoporosis?
Vitamin D is actually shown to be much more important than calcium to prevent bone fractures.
Some research shows that dairy consumption can increase the body’s level of insulin-like growth factor a known cancer promoter.
Lastly, about 75% of people around the world cannot adequately digest dairy products and are known as being lactose intolerant.
Other reasons dairy is not your best choice of healthy food:
- Full of saturated fat (Remember the calf wanting to be 400-500 pounds!)
- Aggravates irritable bowel syndrome
- It includes estrogen giving you higher risk of breast cancer
- Protein in cow’s milk produces insulin like growth factor one, which increases cancer growth
- Can increase weight
- Cows are genetically modified to produce milk through pregnancy

Around age 2 to 5, we stop producing the enzyme needed to properly metabolize lactose, the sugar in milk.
Our bodies are not meant to consume milk regularly.
It’s been shown that it’s better to get calcium from plant-based food sources than from dairy.

(1)Plants that are rich in calcium include:
- Sesame Seeds: One of the highest levels of calcium.
- Chia Seeds: Research shows contain more calcium than milk.
- Bok choy
- Almonds: Good alkaline-forming nut and good source of calcium
- Coconut Milk: Great source of calcium and electrolytes
- Sea Vegetables
Get your calcium from where your ancestors got it, from your food! Eat dark green leafy veggies, sesame tahini, sea vegetables, and sardines or wild salmon with the bones.
Why supplement with vitamin D3?
D3 is technically a hormone and is important to take as a supplement for the following reasons:
- Supports the immune system
- Positively affects approximately 3,000 of our 25,000 genes
- Aids in healing autoimmune disease
- Helps increase energy
I get my D3 from a supplement spray made by “Garden of Life” called My Kind Organics. Here is the link to check it out!
Remember the FDA approved food pyramid was bought by lobbyists who do not have your good health in mind!
It’s time to take a stand your health! You deserve that!
