What Are Healing Foods?

Healing foods are naturally cleansing which is the key to effortless weight loss. Excess weight is the result of sluggish digestion, poor hydration, and buildup of toxins. If you’re not digesting your foods efficiently, drinking pure water, or eliminating waste on a regular basis, your body will store fat as a protective mechanism to keep your vital internal organs from being damaged by this buildup of toxins.

Once you take action to remove these toxins and waste from your body, it can begin to heal. A healthy body will be able to easily absorb the key nutrients in whole foods, eliminate waste effectively, and have the necessary energy to exercise on a regular basis. This will help boost your metabolism and allow you to release excess weight easily.

  1. French strawberries have just been found to have high levels of pesticide – including some banned over 5 years ago. Grow your own organic if you can.

  2. yes this is a brilliant site but there appears to be no information regarding Vitamin K being dangerous to those who are on Warfarin or other blood thinning medicines, visit your doctor before embarking on any diet where vitamin K is concerned if you are taking prescription medicines.

    • You are correct I embarked on a spinach, brussel sprout diet of sorts because I read Vitamin K was so good for you, it played havoc with my Warfarin blood levels, so what is the answer how does one get the benefits of Vitamin K, I currently take cj10 with 200 strength, eat Strawberries, cinnamon and ground ginger, linseed, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, and about to add gingsin. Anymore suggestions would be welcome

  3. In the list of healthy berries, yes they are all excellent, the humble gooseberry has been forgotten. ” goosegogs ” are high in potassium [K] and doubtless contain much vitamin C, ascorbic acid. Gooseberries are very easy to grow even in a temperate climate. Some varieties are quite sweet and grow as large as small plums.
