Celebrate Freedom from Pain
Pain hinders our happiness in many torturous ways.
It costs Australians quality of life, productivity and billions annually. Joint, back and neck pain are the most common concerns.
Many turn to pain killers and short term tools, despite their side effects and limitations. Hundreds of my patients have experienced rapid relief from the following alkalizing and anti-inflammatory routine, most alleviating chronic aches in a week. Is it possible to turn your frown into a smile in just seven days? The answer is absolutely YES. Take the following steps to witness your body’s amazing balancing abilities. With faith and discipline you can do it. Imagine the amazing freedom of a pain free, fully functional body. Its like getting a new dream car. By the end of the week wave bye bye to pain and hello to happiness.
Clear fridge and cupboards of grains, sugar and alcohol. Cancel any dinner dates. Tell everyone you know that you’re on a meal plan to eliminate pain. Dedicate yourself to strictly adhering to this program.
Awake and smile to yourself. Say “Everyday in every way I’m getting healthier and happier.” Look at yourself in the mirror and say I love you. Punctuation with a kiss is optional! Drink a cup of herbal caffeine free tea of choice, with or without almond milk. Do 30 minutes cardio vascular exercise to sweat and raise heart rate. Before 9am enjoy a big breakfast using any of the following ingredients sesame oil, coconut oil, ghee, vegetables, tempeh, nuts, seeds, egg, cheese, salt (sea, celtic or Himalayan), herbs and spices. If they don’t give you bloat then add legumes such as mung beans, lentils, urad dal, red kidney beans or chickpeas. However if they cause gas then completely avoid them. Chew every mouthful at least 15 times. Sip pure water as desired. Take all your supplements. If you prefer you can take the slippery elm and oil later. At around 11am eat a huge fresh fruit salad with primarily papaya, fruits of choice, yoghurt, seeds, and desiccated coconut. Between 12 and 2pm do a 30 minute yoga nidra relaxation practice. One is available from www.hearandheal.com. By 2pm have a solid, larger lunch comprising of anything other than grains. Around 5pm have a fresh juice of carrot, celery, tumeric root and ginger root - only if you are hungry. In the evening if you get hungry have a herbal tea or a very light vegetable soup if really ravenous. However if you had a big breakfast, lunch and juice you shouldn’t have any appetite. Only drink herbal teas, freshly squeezed juice, almond milk and pure water without added sugar.
