Stop the Sugar Now!
Read to support getting the sugar out of your diet.
Begin your research here:
"Could this be sugar?"
Do you believe the answers are all there if you just pay attention to the signs along the way? Here is what happened to me!
I was the owner of a small chain of Beauty Salons. I hired a beautiful girl who told me from the beginning that she would really work hard but would usually get sick often. She also told me she did not like getting sick and would do everything she could to make it to work. She had tried to find out why this was happening to her, but the doctors did not have any answer.
Well, believe it or not, I decided to hire her. She was so cute; I had to take a chance. The truth is, she did what she said she would do and to cut short my long story, there were days she would show up for work and I could see she could barely stay awake, let alone stand on her feet.
To begin with, I would ask the questions; Did you get enough sleep? Yes. Are you sick at your stomach? No. Do you want to go home? No.
To sum it up, I would let her lay down and she would be okay within a few minutes and go work and work the full day. I could not get this situation out of my mind.
Okay, now lets get to my story about being on that awareness level.
I was on vacation in San Francisco and I walked into a small bookstore. I was browsing around and I came across a book. I can remember it like I was there again. It was a pink book. The author was Dr. William G. Crook. The name of the book was "The Yeast Connection" and I could not put it down. But this book would change me for the rest of my life. There it was ...my answer! This had to be what was happening to my new employee.
This information opened my eyes to a new understanding of SUGAR. Yes, Candida yeast infections, nutrition, sugar, and how we do abuse our body with food. The food that you think is fun food can be the very food that is compromising your health; Food like candy, white bread, white potatoes, white refined rice and even milk. It was a small education, but a big step to the next part of my life.
At that moment, I realized my faithful employee must be eating sugar and crashing in the morning. I could not wait to tell her.
Now pay attention to this! She was eating heavy sugar coated cereal with milk, in the morning and as the book said, milk has lactose another form of sugar; Two sugars for breakfast on an empty stomach.
According to the book by Dr. Crook, there are many forms of sugar ...lets just say she had more sugar in the bowl than nutrition. She was feeding the yeast bacteria (Candida Albicans) in her body that was harboring sickness. How scary is that!!
I still panic over the holidays when we promote sugar in so many ways and worst of all give it to our children so freely.
Now consider what happens when you feed your child pizza (white refined flour that turns to sugar with gluten added) for supper ...with a glass of soda with 26 to 36 grams of sugar and then top it off you say, "If you eat your supper, I'll give you a desert (more sugar). Soon you see perfectly good children start to fight and cry and you relate it to being tired (which the sugar played a part in too).
Please understand, I was no different than you. I was making my children happy for the moment ...thinking I was a good mother. I was not educated to these facts and then you have to ask yourself why? Why do our doctors not tell us the truth? Why do we have to struggle to find the truth? Why did the truth take so long to surface when they knew it all along? Who are they?
Quite simply, the truth is out there, but you have to become aware. Don't just pass over the truths by looking only on the surface. Look for the signs along the way to stay healthy.
The final facts is research the information from professionals that have studied and believe in nutrition ...like Linus Pauling, two time Nobel Prize winner, or Dr William G. Crook, for his study in nutrition, and Nancy Appleton, PH.D for her great books, "Get the Sugar out" and "Heal Yourself with Natural Foods." We can go as far as your mind can imagine.
Here's to your health!
