By now everyone knows that SUGAR is bad for you. Well, maybe not everyone! You see, the majority of the population has been under the spell of the propaganda being spewed forth about how sugar is really not that bad. “It’s Natural”! “Got a problem with artificial sweeteners? We use pure natural sugar in our soft drinks!” Different poisons , same affect – POOR HEALTH!
If you read my post on CELLULAR you learned that there are three main things that cause it, toxins, bad fats and sugar. Cellular inflammation (inflammation of the cell’s membrane) basically causes the cell not to function correctly and eventually die.
The inflamed membrane affects the cell’s ability to get rid of waste, absorb nutrients, and it’s receptors become blunted and non-functional, ultimately causing cell death. Depending on which cells are affected, determines what disease you doctor will diagnose! (That’s the reason the above charts seem to have unrelated diseases, but they all are affected by cells dying off).
An article written by Brad Chase in today’s NaturalNews.com explained a good three step process to break a sugar addiction! First you make sure all your fruits a veggies are ORGANIC. This produce tastes better, has a higher nutritional content, and contains slower-breaking-down complex carbs. This is a key factor.
Secondly, if you consume pastries and cookies, you can substitute a whole grain bread and raw honey. This is not the healthiest option, but it can help break the habit of the simple sugars in baked goods! Again these are steps taken to break the addiction to sugar.
And thirdly if you are craving crunchy snacks use raw nuts and trail mixes as a substitute for chips, pretzels etc. Nuts are a great source of nutrients, just make sure they are raw and organic. If you want to “kick it up a notch”, soak the nuts and them dehydrate them. This increases their digestibility and actually makes certain nuts taste better! You can do a search for the simple process of doing this.
Before long, your “taste” for sugar will actually disappear, or be severely curtailed. When I was a young man (about 100 years ago) I would put multiple (3 to 4) teaspoons of sugar in my coffee, now I drink it black!
You will also see many of your chronic symptoms disappear, and you will not get the annual bout with the flu!
And then you can take it further to other aspects of your environment, and deal with toxins and bad fats!
To Your Health!
