Wu-Yi Tea – What Diet Formulas To Avoid.



Most diet formulas are completely ludicrous and frauds.

At best they just won’t work, and at worst they can cause serious side effects that will cause huge problems with your health.

Wu-Yi Tea is the only diet that doesn’t cause these problems.

Diet’s don’t tend to work for three main reasons.

1. Appetite suppressants reduce how hungry your body gets throughout the day.

The problem is it is unnatural and while you may eat less, but your body is really still hungry, but the chemicals in suppressants cause your body to resist this hunger. Obviously your body will lack important vitamins and minerals. This is actually like starvation and will cause huge health problems like break-out binge eating and slowing down your metabolism when your body goes into survival mode.

What’s more when you radically decrease your caloric intake it actually slows down the burning of fat because your body gets scared and goes into survival mode, turning every little morsel it gets into fat. What’s worse, when you go off your starvation diet, your body will overcompensate and the “starvation response” will continue which basically means you usually end up gaining back more weight than you have temporarily lost. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THEIR SLICK MARKETING.

2. Fat, Starch and Carb Blocking Pills or Potions.

The emotional advertising for these little pills really play on your desires because they tell you it’s possible to consume all sorts of fattening food like pastries and pizzas without gaining any weight. How? They claim to be able to separate the fat and zip it through your body without any of it “sticking.” Yeah, right. Many people experience horrific side effects such as diahrrea, sick stomachs or blinding headaches. However the worst part of all is the myth these pills perpetuate actually encourages people to establish bad eating habits. AVOID THESE BLOCKERS AT ALL COSTS!


3. Metabolism boosters.

The metabolism booster (otherwise known as the “thermogenic” pill) is the most dangerous of all because they often contain ephedrine (otherwise known as ephedra or mua hung) which is extremely dangerous, as it is a very strong stimulant which puts untold amounts of pressure on your heart, especially when you are reducing calories. It also contains massive amounts of caffeine and causes intense energy ups and downs, insomnia and mood swings. Many people get addicted to them because they “cheat” by adding diuretics, which quickly knocks off the “water weight” and cause dehydration which can weaken muscles including your heart. The scales may say you have lost weight as a result, but in reality no fat has been lost: just water. SAY NO TO THEM.

Wu-Yi tea is known to boost your metabolism, but it does it naturally and safe!

Wu-Yi Tea is all natural and was named the 2008 Diet of the Year!

Detoxify Your Body – The Top 6 Ways to Detoxify Yourself



It’s a fact, we are like magnets for toxins like pesticides, herbicides (including carcinogens) preservatives and heavy metals. Just living in this century has made us vulnerable. The food we eat is contaminated. Fresh fish contains mercury and other heavy metals. Meat and poultry are grown with hormones. Even fresh fruit and vegetables have been subjected to pesticides and other toxins. Processed food is even worse, with chemical additives to preserve, color, anti-caking agents and who knows what else.

How about the air you breathe? Very few places have a good air quality these days. Look into the distance at your locality, is the air clear or smoggy? Think about the dirty, greasy coating which lands on your car, of course, you are breathing the same air which delivered that mess. We also absorb toxins through our skin.

Is it any wonder your body is overloaded, unable to properly rid itself of toxins and is crying out for help. Inflammation and irritation of your tissues, causing chronic illness, is the result.

So what are the top 6 things you are do to help the detoxification process.

Number 1 – Minimize exposure to toxins.
Avoid dry cleaning your clothes, make certain your normal washing is properly rinsed.

  • Don’t microwave your food in plastics (even if it says microwave safe).
  • Use glass containers to store food.
  • Beware of lead-based paint in older properties.
  • Use natural products and steam to clean your home.
  • Of course, don’t smoke.
  • Consider getting an air purifier to cleanse the air in your home, as it’s been proven that the air inside your home is often more polluted than the air outside.

Number 2 – Filter and purify your water.
This is an essential. We are made up of a large percentage of water. It is in every cell of our bodies. We are reliant on water to survive, and should consume 8-12 glasses daily to hydrate our cells and cleanse our system. However, it’s not just quantity, it’s also quality that counts. Most metropolitan water supplies are treated with chemicals to decontaminate the water. Rightly so, as untreated water would be a disaster. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean drinking the chemicals in the water is good for you. They add to your toxic load. A good water purifier should filter out the chemicals, add life and minerals to the water, energizing it to give it the structure of pure, natural water. Find out about Living Water HERE

Number 3 – Cleanse your digestive tract
The longer the transit time through your digestive system the more toxins are absorbed into your bloodstream. Therefore constipation is extremely bad for your health. Help your body rid itself of waste by drinking sufficient water to lubricate your system and eat enough fiber to “sweep” your colon clean.
Over time toxins build up in your colon, in a coating of plaque, preventing absorption of nutrients and “locking” toxins in, making colon cleansing a priority to extend your life. Click HERE for more information.

Number 4 – Eat organic food
Eating organic food not only reduces your toxic load, but also increases your nutrient intake. If you find it’s expensive or hard to find, try growing your own. Nature likes balance, so you will find, to a large degree, the good insects will take care of the annoying ones.

Number 5 – Detoxify with natural products

Chlorella – a single-celled dark green fresh water algae. It has a fibrous cell wall, which acts like a sponge to bind with all toxins (including heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides) and allow them to pass out of your body. More on Chlorella HERE
Chlorophyll – a natural cleanser of your blood and digestive system. Cleanses your blood, kidney, liver and digestive system. The best chlorophyll is obtained from the young leaves of the mulberry (morus alba l). More on Chlorophyll HERE
Spirulina – a blue-green algae with many benefits, including the ability to improve gastrointestinal and digestive health. More on Certified Organic Spirulina HERE.
Sorry to get personal here, but it’s important, you will have noticed that all these products are green, if your stools are not green, then you’re not taking enough.


Number 6 – Protect your skin
Your skin is the largest organ of your body. Chemicals pass through your skin directly into your bloodstream. Avoid chemicals touching your skin. If you must dry-clean clothing, make certain you air it outside to reduce the chemicals. Avoid cleaning with chemical-based products, or at least wear gloves and use in well-ventilated areas. Install a water filter in your shower. Use organic skin care products.

Think about everything you eat, breathe, drink and touch. The secret is to minimize the input of toxins and maximize their output.


Nutrition Intelligence – Glossary – Antioxidants, Vitamins, Phytochemicals

Glossary of Terms you may find useful. Got something you can add? Just post a comment with the details.

A

Antioxidants Group of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phyto-nutrients, phyto-chemicals) which help protect your body from free radicals (caused by normal body functions, aging, pollutants, pesticides, antibiotic use and other factors).

Adaptogen – That which helps boost, balance and normalize functions in your body.

B

Bioflavanoids – Sometimes referred to as Vitamin P, these help to enhance the absorption of Vitamin C. The human body does not produce these so they must be supplied by your diet. They help to promote circulation, stimulate bile production, and act with Vitamin C to preserve and protect the structure of capillary blood vessels.

D

Demulcent – Helps to soothe and relieve internal inflammation.

E

Emollient – Helps to soothe and soften inflamed tissue

F

Free Radicals – A single or group of unstable molecules/atoms that can cause damage to cells, leading to breakdown and disease. Visualize and apple – when you cut it and leave the cut surface exposed to air.It turns brown, almost like it’s rusting. Oxidization has occurred. In a similar way unstable oxygen molecules in your body are the free radicals that cause your unprotected organs to “rust” and breakdown.

P

Phytochemicals – Literally meaning “plant chemicals”, phytochemicals are protective food factors derived from a variety of plant sources. Phtyochemicals have powerful health benefits. Whenever there is plant life, phytochemicals protect plants from attack by their enemies in the environment, like bacteria, viruses, radiation and insects. Research is now showing that we can benefit from these life-sustaining qualities as well. Good news for us. Plants have been in existence much longer than man and know much more about survival. Research indicates that phytochemicals can provide protection against some types of cancer.

T

Tonic – A product that is strengthening and invigorating.

V

Vitamins really deserve there own glossary! Vitamins are organic chemicals that are necessary for growth, metabolism, and overall health and well-being. Vitamins originate in food, and are categorized as either fat soluble (meaning they can be stored in the body for long periods of time) OR water soluble (these pass easily through our bodies, cannot be stored, must be replenished daily).

Vitamin A – Also known as Beta Carotene, a fat-soluble vitamin essential for cell growth, development, reproduction, and immunity. It is stored primarily in the liver and is considered one of the most potent antioxidants.

Vitamin B1 – Also known as Thiamine, a water-soluble vitamin, beneficial to the nervous system. It helps to convert blood sugar (glucose) into energy.

Vitamin B2 – Also known as Riboflavin, a water-soluble vitamin which helps with energy production. It must be replaced constantly. It is the most common deficiency.

Vitamin B3 – Also known as Niacin, a water-soluble vitamin, a major player against heart disease. It helps to lower cholesterol and high blood pressure.

Vitamin B6 – Also known as Pyridoxine, this water-soluble vitamin goes through the body in only 8 hours. It is needed for red-blood cell production and cellular growth. It also plays a key role in the immune system and antibody production.

Vitamin B12 – Also known as Cyanocobalamin, a water-soluble vitamin known for its energizing capabilities. It is essential for nerve tissue, promotes growth, memory and regenerates red blood cells.

Vitamin B15 – Also known as Pantothenic Acid, this water-soluble vitamin helps protect against cardiovascular disease as ell as helping with symptoms of arthritis. It helps encourage healing, protects the liver and immune system.

Biotin -This water-soluble vitamin is essential for the metabolism of vitamin C, fat and protein. It helps with healthy hair, skin and nails.

Vitamin C – This water-soluble vitamin is essential for formation of collagen (exists between cells to hold tissue together). It is necessary for growth and integrity of bones, blood vessels, teeth and gums. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and has many powerful properties; anti-cancer, prevention of blood clots.

Vitamin D – This is a fat-soluble vitamin that the skin can produce on its own when exposed to direct sunlight. In only 15 minutes a day, your body can manufacture all it needs. It is not very abundant in food, and is stored in the liver for future use.

Vitamin E – This fat-soluble vitamin is stored in many places; the heart, liver, reproductive organs, fatty tissue, and muscles. It basically works for the nervous system. It is a potent antioxidant, and helps to combat heart disease, by keeping good cholesterol (HDL) high, blood thin and blood pressure low.
