5 Ways in 5 Days to Lose 5lbs & Live Healthier

Almost everyone is looking for the best way to stay fit and healthy. Diets come and go, as does the weight. One minute you’re fit and trim, the next minute your clothes don’t fit. Weight needs to be managed just as much as stress does. Stress causes us to overeat and consume the wrong foods and beverages. So here are some pointers from a naturopathic doctor who is well familiar with the struggle to stay fit and healthy.

1. It’s important to connect to a higher power by having faith and to believe in yourself and that you can do whatever you set your mind to. Our bodies are wired to listen to our brains. The human mind is very powerful and it is in charge of our body. It is not the body that should dictate what you do but your mind. Have you ever seen a king walking and his servant riding on the horse?

2. Use natural foods and herbal supplements like Schisandra berries or Ashwaghanda to manage your stress hormones. In addition to fun sweaty exercise, also known as exercise, it’s good to take natural supplements that can boost brain power, energy, will power, mood and vitality. I love Schisandra berries and so do my clients. When you’re feeling a little flustered, a cup of Schisandra berries tea will make you relax and not take out your stress on those closest to you, as humans tend to do. They are definitely not your typical berry. This dynamic superberry counters stress by reducing the number of stress hormones in the blood. It is considered an adaptogen, meaning that it can adapt to the broad needs of your body. Schisandra helps to decrease fatigue and improve mental and physical endurance. Many athletes use the superberry to improve performance. Schisandra berries also help the liver to function well, it aids the digestion system and boosts the immune system. In addition, Schisandra fights cancer cells by boosting immunity. It also beautifies the skin. To make a Schisandra berry wine tonic, soak the berries in a wine for about three to four weeks. You can also make a tea by boiling or steeping the berries, add a bit of honey and enjoy the unusual taste and thrilling benefits of these dynamic little berries.

3. Detoxify your body and your blood by making a tea out of burdock and dandelion leaves, ginger, cascara sagrada, and peppermint leaves. Drink lots of water. Eliminate by going to bathroom often. Use 1 tsp of the above to 1 liter of water, boil for 5 minutes and let cool. Drink a very small teacup each morning.

4. Take a 5 day watermelon fast or flush if you are physically able to. Check with your doctor first. In those five days, you can eat as much watermelon as you like, juice the watermelon, drink lots of water, lots of herbal tea.

5. Do a steam therapy detox or steam sauna once or twice during the five days. Drink lots of water to replenish all the fluids lost. Ask your doctor if you are ill or have health issues before going on this regimen.

Balance Your pH & Getting Healthy by Dr. Simone Lord

The reason many people fall sick is because some of their vital organs, tissues and blood break down. This is actually caused by deficiencies of nutrients, vitamins and minerals in their diet. Many people are also unable to digest or absorb these crucial nutrients and minerals. These food substances provide very important nutrients, and when our bodies don’t get them it starts the breakdown of vital organs. These deficiencies can be traced to our food supply and the soil that grows the food supply. Very often, the soil from whence most of our foods come from are lacking in rich minerals. My objective is to show how getting the right food substances, minerals, amino acids, vitamins, fats and carbohydrates can bring or keep our bodies back into balance and perfect health. My goal is to show how preventative medicine, through feeding our body, mind and spirit the right food substances, along with lifestyle changes can cause us to live a long, prosperous and healthy life.

PH stands for power or potential of hydrogen, that is, how many hydrogen ions are in a solution, which determines acidity or alkalinity of that solution. pH can measure the speed of digestion.

Everything in life is about balance. pH is no different. Our bodies can be too acidic or too alkaline.  We want to have a balanced pH of between 6.4 to 6.6 in order for our bodies to absorb essential minerals such as iron, iodine, manganese, magnesium, potassium and more.  We can test pH by using pH strips.  You put the strip under your tongue and remove after about five seconds. Next you match the color up with the chart on the Universal pH strips. The ideal color should be a cool mint green, light jade color. The more yellow the color of the strip, the more acidic you are. The darker the green turning to dark purple, the more alkaline you are. Ideally you want to be in the middle… a mint color.

The saliva pH tells the condition of the liver, while the urine pH will tell the condition of the way the body is functioning and eliminating waste materials.

Many problems arise from high acidity, such as joint pain and inflammation. Interestingly enough, high acidity comes from one’s diet. So we should be careful to have a balanced diet. Many Americans consume too much acidic foods giving disease a door to come into entire families. Many diseases that are said to be hereditary are based on the diets of one’s parents and ancestors. The diet and foods that are part of one’s heritage or culture, if not balanced, can cause history to repeat itself. So if someone’s dad died of prostate cancer, the chances are higher that the sons may get prostate cancer because of some of the dietary habits that were inherited.  Breaking the cycle is not difficult, with careful and keen diet and lifestyle analysis.

Balancing the body’s pH will lead to better health and longevity. There are many foods, fruits and vegetables that can influence one’s pH.

Highly Acidic Foods for when pH is too alkaline include asparagus, barley, dried beans, beechnuts, beef, buckwheat, bread, butter, cashews, cereals, cheese, chestnuts, chicken, chocolate, clams, cod liver oil, cottage cheese, cornmeal, crab, cream, eggs, farina, fish, flour, frog legs, ham, hazelnuts, hickory nuts, hominy, honey, horseradish, lamb, lentils, lobster, mackerel, maple syrup, margarine, mussels, mushrooms, oats, pasta, peanuts, pecans, pistachios, pomegranate, pork, prunes, rice, rye, sauerkraut, salmon, scallops, smoked herring, sole, pasta, sugar, syrups, tapioca starch, turkey, walnuts, wheat germ and wine.

 Highly Alkaline Foods for when the pH is too acidic include:

Alfalfa sprouts, almonds, apples or apple cider, apricots, artichokes, bananas, beets, beet tops, blackberries, blueberries, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, burdock, cabbage, cantaloupe, carob, carrots, chlorella, cauliflower, celery, chard, cherries, chives/scallions, coconut,  cucumbers, currants , cranberries, dandelion greens, dates, dill, figs, flaxseed, garlic, grapes, grapefruit,  guava, huckleberries, Irish moss, kelp, leeks, lemons, lettuce, limes, mango, melons, millet, mint, molasses, mulberries, barley, collard greens, mustard greens, nectarines, okra, olives, olive oil, onions, oranges, papaya, parsley, parsnips, passion fruit, peaches, pears, persimmons, pineapple, plums, radishes, raisins, raspberries, rhubarb, Romaine lettuce, rutabagas, sea grass, sorrel, soybeans, spinach, squash, dulse, sea vegetables, spirulina, strawberries, Swiss chard, pumpkin, tangerine, turnips, Vegetable oils, water chestnuts, watercress, watermelon.

Tofu is an alkalizing protein while pork, meats, bacon, beef, turkey, shrimp, clams tend to be acidifying protein.

Some health problems that can arise when the body’s PH is too acidic are:

Liver disease, lung disease, osteoporosis , bone loss, Crohn’s disease, bladder, kidney problem, mineral deficiency, muscle wasting, thinning of skin, low energy, loss of teeth, cold sores, diarrhea, depression, anxiety, mood swings, anemia, reproductive problems, muscle cramping…if the urine is acidic, we may see reproductive problems as well. (Manganese is not being absorbed and the reproductive system loves manganese.)

When the pH is above 6.6, it is moving in an alkaline direction. One can expect colon problems, parasites, yeast and bacterial growth. This alkaline condition can cause a toxic colon, constipation, a toxic lymphatic system, sinus problems and upper respiratory infections. Skin can also be affected, lack of oxygen in the liver, pigmentation problems, sometimes body odor. Vitamin C may be lacking.

The liver has six needs for its best performance. If it’s not getting enough mineral, it starts deteriorating and other organs are affected negatively as well. The top needs of the liver are: Water, Oxygen, Calcium, Vitamin A, Iron and Iodine. Consider what foods or supplements you are currently taking that feeds your liver. What is your current source of calcium? Are you drinking enough good water? Eating enough green leafy vegetables? Where is your iron coming from? We must pay attention to the needs of our body, provide for these needs in order to live our healthiest lives.

Without proper pH balance, digestion and elimination move at the wrong frequency and essential minerals and nutrients cannot be absorbed into the body. We need minerals and nutrients to function at 100%. Intramaxx has all the minerals we need, call us to obtain a bottle that will last you about a year.

The Eyes Of Understanding

Its understanding that makes one outstanding!
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints – Eph 1:18
It is understanding that that makes one Outstanding. When you understand him you ll stand out. Its understanding that equals revelation and revelation equals transformation.
Its a privilege to know and have a relationship with the most high God. When you know and understanding his ways he will reveal his secrets to you – Ps 25:14
May your eyes of understanding be enlightened that you may know the rewards of heeding to his call and the goodies and glory he has in store for his children and his inheritance in the saints in his kingdom here and hereafter.
Father Lord, open my eyes of understanding that i may know you and the work you has finished and the things you have prepared for me.  Give me the grace to have faith and rest assured on the work you finished on the cross in Jesus name.

Focus on Becoming Powerful

Focus on Becoming Powerful

When I think of power I think of God. God is power, He is love, he is abundance He is strength, He is grace, He is mercy, He is health, all these things are all in His hands. When you meditate on His power and in the knowledge that you are His child, you ought not be afraid.

In Greek mythology, Zeus is all powerful, and so are His children, think of Hercules. When we are in a good relationship with God, we are freed from the enemy’s grip to live an abundant, power-filled life, instead of the depressed, broke, lonely, diseased and fearful life Satan leads us to with his temptations. When we obey the rules of our earthly parents and listen to their wisdom, we inherit great things. Here we see that obedience is one of the keys to living a great life. When we are disobedient to our parents, we get into trouble. When we listen and are obedient, we fulfil our life’s potential, with grandeur.

The enemy comes to tempt us, to steal, kill and destroy us, if we let him. We do not have to let him. When you were a child or teenager, your parents protected you as best as they could from falling. As an adult, God and His army of angels take over the protection, the advising. Do we always listen?

When we follow our own lusts, ego and pride, we make bad decisions that can ultimately impact the quality of our lives and our children’s lives. Then while we are living those miserable lives stemming from the bad decisions that God’s messengers begged us not to make, we beseech God’s help to deliver us from the agony of the consequences of our disobedience.

Like any parent, God the Father has plans for our prosperity. If we look good, He looks great. Jeremiah 29:11 “ For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

So we can be sure that God and the universe wants the best for us. We are supposed to be productive, progressive and thrive! We are not supposed to be living in poverty, bad health. We are meant to be happy, healthy God-like people, inventors, excellent parents, creators, writers, farmers and so forth; not rebellious, disobedient, poverty stricken people of ill health and bad vices.

(“Beloved, above all things, I wish that thou mayest prosper and be in good health, even as thy soul prospers.”) 3 John 1-2.

What can we do to get ourselves out of this trap that the enemy has set for us?

  1. Meditate, pray, listen and obey God.
  2. Face your fears. You have a sound mind to make great decisions, don’t let fear stop you.
  3. Take full responsibility for our actions and bad decisions. Repent and ask God for forgiveness.
  4. Believe that you are forgiven and take action to turn your life around. God allows U-turns.
  5. Follow your gut instincts. Don’t allow yourself to be tempted and swayed by a pretty face, sweet talk or money. Looks fade, money runs out. Look instead for strong and Godly character.
  6. Learn how to say NO and move on. Do not allow others to take you from your purpose and destiny.
  7. Invest in your self-development, self-improvement. Take courses, read books, go to seminars that will build you up and set you on the path of fulfilling your life’s purpose.
  8. Pay attention to your health. Decide and plan to live a healthy lifestyle. That means drinking enough water daily to nourish your brain and other organs. The rule of thumb is to drink half your body weight in ounces. Are you exercising and sweating regularly? Find a way to get in some fun and sweaty activities in your life. Pay attention to your diet. Which foods are your essential vitamins and minerals coming from?  Get enough sleep, your brain will thank you for it.
  9. Focus on God, not on man. Spiritual development makes way for wisdom, discernment and prosperity. Find a good church to attend and build up yourself, family and community.
  10. Develop your faith by procrastinating less and taking action. Do what you have to do to make a better life for you and your family. Stop doing things or living a life that can kill or retard your growth, health and success.

Schisandra.. Discover the Super-Berry that Helps Manage Stress

Every health conscious individual is looking for the next superfood to aid in anti-aging, stress management and that is chock full of minerals, vitamins, as well as antioxidants. Schisandra berries has all the above but have not gotten the hype they deserve for enhancing longevity and improving vitality. They are also great stress inhibitors. Ashwaghanda has been in the news as a widely acclaimed Ayurvedic herbal supplement that helps the body to fight stress and adrenal fatigue. It is also claimed by many that Ashwaghanda is a powerful sexual tonic for both males and females. Having tried both and recommended both of these herbal supplements to clients, I can say that Schisandra berries works quickly and the benefits derived are noticeable within minutes. You will feel less stressed, calmer, yet mentally alert. It is always advised to talk to your physician before trying any herbal supplements.

When you’re feeling a little flustered, a cup of Schisandra berries tea will make you relax and not take out your stress on those closest to you, as humans tend to do. They are definitely not your typical berry.  This dynamic superberry counters stress by reducing the number of stress hormones in the blood.  It is considered an adaptogen, meaning that it can adapt to the broad needs of your body.

Nothing is hard or difficult for God, with him all things are possible.

What God can do is limited by what we can believe – Mk.10:27; 9:23.

All the things that are possible with God are possible to him that believes.

Faith makes possible to man all the things that are possible with God.

Faith brings the believer to the same platform of operation with God.

Faith aligns man to God for the flow of his virtue thereby enabling man to do exactly what God would do. It is man’s faith that creates the platform for immeasurable & ceaseless flow of God’s virtue.

God’s word remains dormant until somebody’s faith is on the line to give it the required drive towards its performance.

Faith is the link between the spoken word and the performed word.

God’s word is settled in heaven (unchangable), but will require somebody’s faith on earth to settle (perform) it.

God cannot directly interfere with the activities on earth here,…until we invoke and invite him through our faith in action.

God never said, “be it unto you according to what I (God) can do” but be it unto you according to your faith…”

The only thing God cannot do is what we cannot believe.

God is looking for someone to believe before he can work.

Do you believe?



10 Steps to Actually Achieving Those GOALS – Rev. Simone Lord,

“Beloved, above all things, I wish that thou mayest prosper and be in good health even as thy soul prospers…” 3 John 1-2

Interior of a Private Jet

10 Steps to Actually Achieving Those GOALS
Rev. Simone Lord, N.D

If you’re like most people, you made some goals New Years.  Here we are in four months into the year, time to evaluate and stay on track. Unlike most people, your goals can have a 100% percent chance of becoming a reality. Here are some keys to making sure they manifest.

1. Don’t play games with your life. You were put here for a higher purpose. The key here is to find your purpose, that thing that you can do so well and make a true difference in the world. Once you’ve found your purpose, capitalize on it by using it for the greater good, to help others. The same energy you use to do stupid or negative things that will set you back a year, (or a decade if you get caught) is the same energy that you can employ to make strategic moves that can carry you forward.

2. Weight the risks of each move. Think ahead as if you were playing a chess game. If a certain move or action has the potential to set you back terribly or cause you to lose the game, why make it?

3. Write down your goal or goals. Meditate on them each day. Visualize you having manifested your goal or goals. What color, make, model and year car will you be driving? Be very specific. If your goal is to get married and you do not yet have a fiancé, know that you have the power to use deep visualization techniques to conjure up a spouse. Be specific, for example.  I will be married by June 30, 2018 in a church wedding to sexy, good looking, brilliant thinker, and strategist of average height, whose earning power will never diminish because of his powerful mind.  Your subconscious mind will constantly be on the lookout for this potential spouse and will alert you when a candidate like this is in your vicinity.

4. Do five things each day that will get you closer to your goals.  If you’re an entrepreneur, (stems from the French word, “entreprendre” which means “to do something”) write down five strategies daily that can catapult your business into a billion dollar entity. Never underestimate the power of repetitious small actions. For example, if you’re a writer, each day you can send out book outlines to five publishers. If you want better health, your five things can be: drink more water, better diet, better lifestyle, more sleep and getting a naturopathic health consultation.

5. Prioritize what is most important and take steps to accomplish those things. Don’t waste time on activities that cannot positively impact your goals. If your goal is to become a famous author and you own a restaurant then don’t sign up to be the chef.  You need time to focus on writing and marketing your books and articles.

6. Delegate some of the priorities that can take you away from manifesting your goals or goals.

7. Recognize distractions and stay focused on the goals, priorities and strategies that you have written down. Review them each day.

8. Find an accountability partner and stay on track by having a meeting each month or each quarter to measure the effects of your strategies.

9. Keep going, keep asking, keep knocking and keep seeking, it’s a biblical concept for success dating back centuries. (Matthew 7.7) Stop procrastination in its tracks. There is never a better time. Now is the perfect time to manifest your goals.

10. Research, strategize and take that leap of faith. Unless you jump you cannot land, you have to get off the ground floor. Don’t wait until you’re eighty to move! It’s okay to discriminate who you will surround yourself with. If you are an inventor of apps, find some inventor clubs or apps clubs on Meet-up to hub knob with. You have to be around people who can inspire you, fire up your engines not around people who drag you down to their level by not utilizing the full power of the human brain. There is enough power in your brain to light up an entire city. You have greatness within, go ahead and release it, the world is ready for your brilliance.
