Let's face it, in the western world today, we have become
accustomed to a certain lifestyle. We tend to enjoy eating rich and
flavorful foods, most of which are fat and sugar-laden (both of which can,
in large quantities, play havoc with internal health). We enjoy hamburgers
and hot dogs, ice cream and rich desserts, chocolate, coffee and other
caffeinated drinks. We often overeat, particularly at Thanksgiving and
Christmas, on special occasions, or when we eat out (especially at "All
you can eat" buffets). We generally only drink water when we feel
thirsty (lack of thirst does not indicate that you don't need water), and
although we do it, we are generally bored by exercise. The affluence and
abundance in western culture has taught us many bad habits. And, we cannot
change them all overnight. The key is to be mindful of what we put in our
bodies, and try to make positive incremental changes to our lifestyles. The
result for most people who undertake positive changes in diet, exercise and
stress management is enhanced well-being, energy, vigor, happiness,
increased immunity, a decrease in flu, colds and infections.
The key to optimal health is to balance what we love with
what we know to be good for us. Fresh fruits and vegetables; high quality
nutritional supplementation including green foods, vitamins, minerals and
herbs; plenty of pure water; regular exercise; relaxation and meditation are
all important. Periodic detoxification involving nutritionally based
internal cleansing programs is also important, as are sweating, fasting,
colonics and enemas.
Beginning an Internal Cleansing and Detoxification
A high fiber, whole foods diet is important to both cure
and prevent waste elimination problems. Even a gentle, gradual change from
low fiber, low residue foods helps almost immediately. In fact, graduated
change is better than a sudden, drastic about-face, especially when the
colon area is painful or inflamed.
There are many cleansing programs that one can take in
order to bring the digestive system back to health. As we have discussed,
making an effort to restore balance to the colon can have a profound effect
on overall health and vitality. Royal BodyCare (now RBC Life Sciences), in partnership with Dr.
Albert Zehr, have developed a three-phase, 14-clay program that simplifies
colon cleansing and activates elimination.
Colo-Vada-Plus is a
comprehensive, self-contained, all-in-one system complete with vitamins,
minerals, herbs, acidophilus and digestive enzymes that works effectively.
As with many RBC Life Sciences products, the inflow of positive testimonials
from those who have tried the
Colo-Vada-Plus program is almost endless. Many
people report incredible results after having been on the 14-day
program--more energy and "zip", improved regularity, brighter eyes
and better skin, less fatigue, and a greater sense of well-being.
Restoring balance to the digestive system cannot take
place overnight. Nor can it be achieved with drugs, surgery or injections.
Restoring intestinal flora, reducing harmful bacteria and parasites, and
improving regularity takes time and patience. With a little dedication and
education, you can restore balance to your colon, sending a rippling effect
throughout the body. If you feel that you could benefit from more energy, a
greater sense of well-being and improved overall health, you may benefit
from a good cleanse.
Colo-Vada-Plus is three-phase program of nutritional
supplementation, designed to last for 14 days. For the first 7 days, the
preparation phase, herbs and vitamins are taken with the morning and evening
meal. The following 4 days is the program phase, a fast, and involves adding
1 pouch of
Colo-Vada-Plus powder to water or unsweetened juice, four times a
day. No other solid foods, and no other liquids, except unsweetened juices,
mild herbal teas or water should be consumed during this period. The last 3
days is the post-program phase. Nutritional supplements are taken twice a
day. Easily digestible foods should be eaten for the first two days of this
period, returning to proteins like meat and dairy products gradually. At the
end of this period, normal dietary and supplement patterns may be resumed.
The Colo-Vada-Plus program's nutritional approach to
colon regeneration includes many herbs and vitamins well-known for their
powerful health-giving benefits, such as Alfalfa, Black Walnut, Cascara
Sagrada, Acidophilus and vitamin C.
Colo-Vada-Plus program is
the best way to start a life-long program of internal health. However, there
are many other supplements that one should consider in order to keep the
digestive system clean and healthy indefinitely. Enzyme-rich live foods,
foods which contain healthy bacteria (like Sauerkraut, Rejuvelac, etc),
Spirulina and other
supplements, should all be considered.
