We live in a universe that has many different environments. The rain forest is completely different from the deserts. Each environment produces different plants, bugs, and animals. Your body, whether you like it or not, is also a universe to another set of species. Your body, contains, parasites, bacteria, viruses, prions, mycoplams, yeast, mold, and fungus. You are personally responsible for the environment you create within your body. No one has a gun to your head making you drink 6 cups of coffee, or a liter of diet pop, or making you drive through the fast food restaurants. So, if you do not like inhabiting these critters, then only you can change the environment so that they cannot survive. So, ask yourself as you are putting something in your mouth, “Am I okay with feeding the “universe” with all its critters and giving them what they thrive off of?”
If you want different critters in your body, then you need to change the environment. First, do not make your body so acidic. An acidic body allows the critters to live. They are happy, happy, happy. Plus, an acidic body will lead to chronic illness and the Pharmaceutical companies are happy, happy, happy too.
“Yeah that’s easy for you to say.” Well, no, actually it’s not very easy for me to say at all. I lived on coffee. It suppressed my appetite so I did not have to take the time our of my day to cook and then spend hours cleaning a kitchen. It gave me energy… never the caffeine buzz… just the energy I needed to deal with stress. I tried hard to get off coffee, but then the headaches came and I felt like if I did not get a cup of coffee, I was going to hurt someone.
Tea, never worked for me. It gets really discouraging sometimes, right?
Well, what finally worked for me was organic coco, with cinnamon, and maca powder in it (plus half and half or a touch of half and half with coconut oil). The organic coco gave me the caffeine, but I do not crash later on. The cinnamon helps regulate my blood sugar and the maca regulates my hormones. Notice there is no sugar in this drink..just fat from the half and half… which curves my appetite.
Another drink I love is 1/4 cup of apple juice, with 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (I just use any of the JN ACV products), a dash vanilla extract, some lemon, and some stevia of some sort if I feel I have low blood sugar, then I fill the glass up with water to make it a least 8oz.
Face it. If you take our remedies and you still give in to unhealthy cravings, it will take the remedies longer to work. So, it is best to figure out how to stop the cravings. Also realize that the cravings are coming from those critters inside you; they want to survive, so they send out chemicals that affect your brain and it causes you to crave the things they want..not what you want. They want you to feed them sugar, they want you to keep the environment acidic. It is a battle, and it is your choice to see who wins.
If you drink pop, first of all, please AT LEAST get off of diet pop. You are really hurting yourself beyond what you understand because of the artificial sweeteners; it is better just to go ahead and drink the real sugar. But if you are a diehard pop drinker, something you can do is get your favorite juice and put carbonated water in it. You will get that zing that you feel when you drink a pop that “will cut the crud,” but you will be able to control the amount of sugar you are ingesting.
This is just a start in changing your environment. It is better to start slowly and maintain a habit, than to try to do so much right off the bat that you quit. Just think about where you were a year ago, 5 years ago. Time has flown right? So just be patient with “the new you” and change things slowly and stay committed.
