I was eating dinner with a friend recently (Gail) who said
that she likes salad, but can't eat it because it "doesn't
agree with her."
I got a little silly for a second and pictured a salad
with a mean face on the bowl, scowling at Gail, saying "I'm
going to make you miserable if you eat me!"
Once I got serious again I asked her what made her think
She said, "Well, every time I eat it I get the runs"
Hmmm. I think I know what's going on here.
Then I asked what does she usually eat for meals. She
admitted not taking the time to cook and eating a lot of
frozen dinners and fast food.
Ah-ha. That translates to: she's eating lots of poorly
combined meals and processed food chemicals.
That means she's got a good amount of wastes built up in
her colon. So when the occasional cleansing, high water
content lettuce comes through there, it acts like a broom
and starts to push that waste out. The result: diarrhea.
Then I asked her if she gets a lot of runny noses and
"How did you know?" was her surprised answer.
I explained to her that the only problem with the salad is
that she needs to eat MORE of it, not less.
I told her that the colon isn't the only area bearing the
burden here. The toxins from the built up wastes don't
just sit there--they get absorbed into the bloodstream
where they are carried throughout your whole body.
I explained to her that the body is an amazing machine--it
has processes to keep itself clean. So when it becomes
poisoned from eating foods that don't digest well together,
it uses whatever exits it can to get the toxins out--
including your nose and mouth. So you get a runny, mucousy
nose, cough and phlegm.
She was completely floored.
She must have started thinking, because she told me she
got headaches all the time, her joints hurt and she had
allergies, and asked if these could be symptoms of her food
I said, "Absolutely."
So what Gail learned, and what you need to understand, is
that when you eat real foods how I teach you to eat them,
you eliminate the wastes instead of retaining them. That
means no diarrhea and no constipation.
To your health,
PS: If you get the "runs" all too regularly, know that it
is a symptom of a possibly very serious health problem.
Bodily wastes are meant to be eliminated--not retained.
The longer they are in your body, the worse your overall
health is. Go to:
and get yourself a clean body inside as well as out.
