Finding the Balance

Elizabeth GreigHeavy metals, and toxins in general, can be a trigger for brain fog and mental dullness.  If this is something you are experiencing, there are different ways to detoxify your mind. One of the most effective tools is to be mindful about the information you take into your mind: bad news, fear-inducing news, gossip, and useless information can all clutter your mind.

So what can you do? Be proactive and turn off the radio or television when you listen to things that make you feel anxious, angry, or bored.   Ask your friends and family to stop telling you the juicy, but destructive, gossip and tell them that you are being kind to your mind by making a choice about what’s really important for it to hear.

I recently heard about a study that showed that the people who are the happiest are those whose thoughts are about what or who are right in front of them–meaning present time.  So keep your mind centered on what you are doing right now in the present, and don’t let it wander off looking for worries or troubles.  The secret to happiness is a happy mind that is enjoying the moment!

I want to express how pleased I am with the Heal Your Gut program thus far. I am on Day 5 whereas others are on Day 12, but wanted to share that I observed an immediate (as in: Day 1) improvement in elimination and that improvement has only continued in subsequent days. I was simply amazed. I have IBS-like issues and despite taking high-grade probiotics, using glutamine power, and following a fairly strict diet of gluten/dairy avoidance, poor intestinal performance was still an issue for me. I have also taken in the past a number of the products (e.g., Oregano) that are represented in the gut cleanse packet contents, but not with the simultaneous factor as now possible through the one-stop-shop packet, nor perhaps at the same dose level. I’m now thinking that the se produ cts need to be taken synergistically and at a precise calibration to deliver maximal benefits, and it feels to me like that may be happening here now in ways it hadn’t with my more scattershot approach of before. Also, I have taken other gut-supportive protein powders before (Metagenics GI Sustain and Thorne Pharmaceutical’s MediClear Plus). Neither of these products taste very good, but afforded me some relief, so I felt like they served their purpose, considering I was not drinking them for taste, but for functional effect. I assumed the powder from Blum Center would be similar and that would have been fine with me, as I am very willing to sacrifice taste for benefit…..however, I was floored by the cherry flavor. I mix it with coconut milk and will honestly say I would drink this on an elective basis, even if I had no need for its medicinal properties. It tastes like a dessert shake; again, I am amazed. Thank you so much.
