Chill out on the cherries and peaches!!!
Every summer, I threaten to take 6 weeks off from work and move to the Bahamas, returning when the “summer fruit season” is over! Why?
Because in order to succeed in healing your bowel and body, and to look and feel good while doing so, it is imperative that you “blame the right thing!” Your greatest chance for failure in this program occurs if you blame the wrong thing (for your weight, symptoms, and bowel problems, like gas, loose stools, etc)
This is never truer than when summer rolls around!
In fact, I forget about this and soon am reminded of it, and begin starting every consultation with the question, “how many peaches and cherries are you eating?”
More times than I can count, a client has blamed the Bowel Strength, this program, the bentonite, their calcium, or some other product that they NEED to find long lasting, effortless health and weight maintenance for their poor bowels, increased symptoms or weight—when the real blames lies in all the summer fruit they are consuming (and not jut cherries and peaches, but plums, apricots, pineapples, etc.)
Summer fruit is healthy for you, and I think it is this knowledge that lead’s one to neglect to blame it for their problems. How can something that is good for me make me look and feel worse, you may ask.
The answer is that summer fruit is very cleansing. It moves acids from your cells into your blood and bowel, and when your bowel is unhealthy—as yours is until you have healed it!—this causes worse elimination, and the re-absorption of these acids back into your blood and lymph, causing every symptom under the sun!
If you have clogged arteries or cancer this reaction might be something you would need to put up with—move acids in your blood and fewer in your organs and cells does help prevent death, but the majority of you are not focusing on your heart and cells, rather your weight and symptoms. And more acids in your blood than you can eliminate makes your weight and symptoms worse, not better!
Bottom line: I know these fruit are sweet, in season for a limited time, and hard to resist—but try not to overdo it with them. They are not hurting you, but hurting you if you wrongly blame the things you need—your Bowel Strength, bentonite, calcium, etc—when you should really blame the fruit for causing problems. So if you can’t resist these fruit, fine, just keep taking your other products and remember, one day, when your bowel and body are healthier, the consumption of summer fruit won’t aggravate your symptoms or weight…
