Crave

Many people experience symptoms of premature aging or poor health and have no idea that the solution may be as simple as removing possible food allergens.  This plan includes removing possible allergenic foods like gluten, dairy, soy and processed sugars.  If you cringe at the thought of removing a certain food, chances are you are allergic to it.  Generally speaking, the food you crave is the food that is killing you.

Dairy – Despite the widespread notion that milk is healthy, drinking pasteurized milk is frequently associated with a worsening of health. Only 30 percent of the calcium in a cup of milk gets absorbed.  You would get twice as much calcium from a cup of broccoli.  Many green leafy vegetables are loaded with calcium.

Soy – Phytoestrogens in soy can mimic the effects of the female hormone estrogen. These phytoestrogens have been found to have adverse effects on various human tissues.  Drinking two glasses of soy milk daily for one month has enough of the chemical to alter a woman’s menstrual cycle.

Refined Sugar – Refined sugar has been stripped of all nutrients and drains and leaches the body of precious vitamins and minerals. Sugar taken every day produces a continuously acidic condition which affects every organ in the body. A daily intake of refined sugar makes the liver, where sugar is stored, expand like a balloon. When the liver is filled to its maximum capacity, the excess sugar is returned to the blood in the form of fatty acids. These are stored (and seen) in the most inactive areas: the belly, the buttocks, and the thighs.  In contrast unrefined sugar like cane sugar contains minerals the body needs.

Gluten – Gluten is a family of proteins found in grains. They are thick and gooey and make things stick together when baked, instead of falling apart.  It is estimated that 50 percent of the population has difficulty breaking down gluten in their intestines.
