 Thyroid Imbalance

This is an except for the Busy Mama Detox Program regarding Thyroid Imbalance….

I hear so many people having issues with their thyroid that I wanted to share some information with you from The Sunfood Diet Success System by David Wolfe7.

The thyroid is a large endocrine gland situated at the base of the neck and controls your basal metabolic rate. An underactive thyroid slows the metabolic rate and increases the chance of obesity whereas an overactive thyroid speeds up metabolism leaving one excessively thin. Continue reading »

Blood Cleansing Smoothie 

The cleaner your blood, the better your health.

spirulinaI mention spirulina in The Busy Mama Detox Program, as it is packed with chlorophyll and aids in the body’s natural detoxing. The key though is that not only does it get toxins out of your cells but it also gets them out of your body and this is key.

Think about dusting your home – dust flies up and while some might be carried away on the cloth or sucked up by the vacuum cleaner, some settles back down on to the surfaces. If we allow toxins to be released without getting them out of our bodies, then we can feel nausea, headaches etc.  It is imperative to get these toxin O-U-T of your system…..as a bonus your fat cells may start to shrink

1 -2 cups water

1 cored apple

1 peeled orange

2 cups raspberries or blueberries

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp spirulina (work up to this amount if needed)

1 tsp stevia or maple syrup or a date, if extra sweetness needed

Add ice cubes, if you like,  if you are not using frozen fruit

 My extras that I add in are:

1 tsp matcha green tea powder

1 tbsp 91-1 or Vitamineral greens

Put everything in the blender or Vitamix and let the detoxing begin!

What are people saying……………………

 

The Busy Mama Detox Program is so easy to follow.  I don’t feel overwhelmed and it’s comforting to know that I can work at my own pace with Tanya’s guidance.  In one week I have more energy and my pants are looser. Laura – busy mama of 2

 

Tanya’s knowledge about healthy living is incredible.  She gives realistic advice that is doable and doesn’t leave you feeling like a failure. My skin is clearing up, I’m making better choices when it comes to eating (and I thought I was a healthy eater), and she provides really neat fat burning tips that I’ve never heard of before.  Enjoy this fabulous program.  Rose- busy mama of 2

 

The Busy Mama Detox is separated into three different programs that you can follow – easy to implement strategies to more involved strategies that you can work up to.  I’m a busy mama of 3 with barely enough time to read it, but Tanya’s layout makes it super easy to follow and her recommendations are the kick in the detox butt that I needed. Melanie –busy mama of 3

 

I’m a busy grandma and I am thrilled that the Busy Mama Detox also applies to me.  The changes are so simple and effective.  I’m consistently making these tiny changes and they have added up to more energy, mental clarity and looser fitting clothes.  All the other grandma’s are asking me what my secrets are! Laura – busy grand-mama of 4

 

I went from being constipated to regular bowel movements…do you know how incredible that feels! – Teresa busy mama of 2

 

Tanya’s Kid Corner Tips are fantastic.  One of her tips has tricked my kids into eating half the sugar they did the week before and they don’t even realize it – Michelle, busy mama of 2

 

I was out to lunch with my girlfriends and started chatting about The Busy mama Detox. One of my friends told me that she knows a woman whose son was diagnosed at the age of 2 as being mentally challenged and eventually would end up in an institution.  She moved to a new town and sought out a holistic doctor who told her to throw out everything in her fridge and cupboards and to put the family on a strictly raw diet.  That same boy just graduated from a very prestigious HS with honours and says that he knows when he’s not eating properly because his hearing starts to deteriorate.  eg. eating a slice of pizza  Pretty amazing!……Anyway, I’m spreading the word down here and continuing to detox my fridge, cupboards and body! Thank you! – Denise, busy mama of 3

green smoothie in wine glassI always enjoy the wonderful information provided by Mike Adams of Natural News.  It is true that whatever labels companies can stamp on their products, they will.  Whatever works to entice us to buy them.

It can get overwhelming to walk into a supermarket or health food store these days (especially when about 17,000 new food products are introduced each year) so keep your eyes open for these four superfoods to add to your daily smoothie or meals.

 

 

(NaturalNews) Let’s face it: The word superfood has become overused. This title, which was originally intended for foods whose nutritional value considerably exceeded that of the average fruit or vegetable, seems to be attached to almost any natural food these days. Mainstream health magazines are particularly guilty of this abuse, often preferring to use superfood as a marketing term rather than an objective declaration of nutritiousness.

That said, there are a small number of foods that truly deserve to be called superfoods. These tend to be exotic foods that are seldom found in the average Westerner’s home, but which are packed with so many naturally occurring, bioavailable nutrients that they put most multivitamin supplements to shame. This article lists four of the best of them.

moringaMoringa oleifera

Arguably the king of superfoods is Moringa oleifera, a fast-growing Himalayan tree whose leaves are bursting with so much goodness that researchers have nicknamed it “The Miracle Tree” and “The Tree of Immortality.” Moringa leaves contain over 90 different types of nutrients in high quantities, including seven times the vitamin C of oranges, four times the vitamin A of carrots, four times the calcium of milk and three times the potassium of bananas. The leaves are also a complete protein source, since they contain all eight essential amino acids. (1) Given this nutritiousness, it’s unsurprising that studies have linked Moringa consumption to the treatment of diabetesanti-inflammatory diseasescancer and much more.

Moringa powder is easy to purchase online, and makes an excellent natural vitamin and mineral supplement. You might also like to try Ben oil, a sweet-tasting oil made from the tree’s pods that is rich in disease-fighting antioxidants.

Wheatgrass

Wheatgrass is a gluten-free food prepared from the young shoots of the wheat plant. It was popularized in the 1930s by the American chemist Charles L. Schnabel, who claimed that 15 pounds of wheatgrass is equal in nutritional value to 350 pounds of regular garden vegetables! (2) While this claim is now considered to be exaggerated, it is true that wheatgrass is one of the most nutrient-dense foods known to science.

According to spectral analysis, a mere 4 grams of wheatgrass powder supplies us with 1,600 percent of our recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamin E, 7,000 percent of our RDA of manganese, 15,293 percent of our RDA of riboflavin, 413 percent of our RDA of zinc and similarly astounding concentrations of other essential nutrients. (3) It is also one of the world’s finest sources of chlorophyll, a powerful blood builder and cleaner. This makes wheatgrass a potent detox food as well as a superb nutrient supplement.

Chlorella and spirulina

Chlorella and spirulina are two single-celled algae that thrive in the sunniest parts of freshwater bodies. Though both of them probably qualify as superfoods individually, they become something truly special when consumed together. This is because chlorella and spirulina possess complementary rather than identical nutrient profiles. For example, chlorella tends to contain more chlorophyll and iron than spirulina. Chlorella is also better at chelating heavy metals from the body than spirulina and at repairing cell damage due to its unique growth factor. Spirulina, on the other hand, contains more protein, gamma-linoleic acid (a beneficial fat that is essential for brain function) and cancer-fighting phycocyanin than chlorella. (4) Consequently, consuming these two foods together supplies our bodies with an extremely well-rounded infusion of nutrients — far more than the average fruit or vegetable could possibly provide!
