How To Suppress Sugar Cravings

Enemas as a Weight Loss Support Tool

What are the core elements of my recommended healthful weight loss program?

Ten Days to Optimal Health
  • Dietary guidelines laid out in my book, Ten Days to Optimal Health.
  • Eat small meals often.
  • No sugar for 10 days. Low carbohydrates.
  • Lots of fruits, vegetables, healthy proteins, and healthy fats.
  • Filtered water every 30 minutes.
  • No gluten for 10 days.
  • No commercial dairy.
  • Fitness Essential Oil Blend helps to balance blood sugar and reduces food cravings. Use 3-4 drops nightly in a homemade suppository to support weight loss.
  • The herb Gymnema sylvestre reduces sugar cravings and also helps to regulate blood sugar.
  • Take 4 drops of Lemon Essential Oil and 4 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil orally 1-3 times daily. The lemon essential oil helps to break up the toxins in your body and in your fat cells. The peppermint essential oil helps to regulate your digestion. It's a powerful combination.
  • For some people, therapeutic enemas can assist in achieving healthful weight loss.

Repeat this 10-day regimen as often as needed.

Client Testimonial

"I had tried the South Beach Diet, the Atkins Diet, and Weight Watchers. None of these programs really made sense to me and I never felt all that great while I was on any of them. I would lose a little bit of weight but then I would gain it right back again. I hated dieting. Now, after 6 months of working with the principles in Ten Days to Optimal Health, I have lost 65 pounds and I feel happy." ~ Helen T.

Caring for Our Bodies through Dietary Choices

A quote from Ten Days to Optimal Health:

"Optimal health [weight!] is a path; it is not just a place to reach or a set of skills to attain. It is a journey. It is the daily decision to do things as though your health really matters. When this new lifestyle becomes second nature, we have attained our goal. When we make daily rational choices that promote our health, as naturally as we would choose to remove our hands from a hot oven, then we will love the way we feel ...

...Did you know that at this point in history, all of us, unless we are killed by a tragedy, will die of a disease created by the way in which we care for ourselves? This is unacceptable to me. I take issue with the standards that we collectively hold regarding what it means to care for our bodies."

The Afternoon Slump

How often have you experienced that afternoon slump? It's only midway through the day, but your energy has faded drastically. Your blood sugar levels have dropped, and this often triggers sugar cravings.

Gymnema M1325

For more than 2,000 years, Gymnema sylvestre has been used traditionally as a key herb to help maintain normal blood sugar levels already within a healthy range. In India it's called gurmar ("the sugar destroyer") because, since ancient times, natural clinicians have noted that it suppresses the taste of sugar.

Try this simple test and be amazed, especially if you have a sweet tooth. Just place one Gymnema tablet on your tongue for 60 to 90 seconds. It might not taste great, but you'll love what happens next. Swallow the tablet, wait a minute, then try something sweet -- perhaps a few sugar crystals. Surprise -- no sweet taste!

Gymnema supports healthy pancreatic function and the normal production of insulin in the body. By helping to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, it can help support weight management and balance energy levels.

To order Gymnema, call or email the Optimal Health Network.

thyroid gland

Hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid, is one of the most common hormonal disturbances, affecting millions of people of both sexes and of all ages. As many as 1 in 4 people may suffer from some degree of hypothyroidism.

Because the thyroid gland controls the body's metabolic rate, those challenged by hypothyroidism often struggle with an inability to lose weight.

Slight imbalances in thyroid function are common and can often be corrected by making simple dietary adjustments. However, some people find it necessary to supplement their diets with thyroid-boosting nutrients and/or to take some form of natural hormonal support.

A Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) can assist you to determine the health of your thyroid gland and if you could benefit from thyroid-boosting nutrients.


Removing Toxins through Colon Cleansing

Well-placed enemas can play a crucial role in safe and healthful weight loss because studies have shown that environmental pollutants trapped in fat cells are released back into circulation when one loses weight. Working to flush these released toxins from the bloodstream and other tissues as promptly as possible supports optimal health during a weight loss program.
