CLEAN START COLON CLEANSE

Colon health is a major concern for people today. The colon is designed to eliminate waste and toxins from the body, like those found in many of today's processed foods. Unfortunately, processed foods don't supply your body with the essential enzymes and fiber it needs to eliminate these toxins. This can result in a buildup of toxic material in your colon, which can lead to poisoning or disease. To help protect your body from common colon toxins that deplete and degrade your health, Nature's Sunshine's CleanStartœ cleansing and detoxifying program provides the most complete and balanced herbal cleanse available.

A NOTE FROM RANDAL

Hello Everyone,

Hope your holiday season is one filled with peace and joy. So many times it is easy to get stressed out trying to meet all the expectations family and friends have of you. This season, do your best to focus on maintaining your peace and joy.

Thanks for all your sharing of our resources to your family and friends. Our year wouldn't have been so successful without your help.


Until next time,
Randal

LIQUID CHLOROPHYLL

Dr. Segelman advises: "Liquid Chlorophyll and Chlorophyll capsules can help neutralize the toxic effects of some mutagens, which are ever-present in our food and water. They work differently at a molecular level and by taking both together, you are more apt to cover all your bases."1

Chlorophyll, the green matter in plants, is found abundantly in nature. Through a chemical process called photosynthesis, chlorophyll harnesses the sun's energy in order to perform various metabolic functions. Simply, this is how it works:

THE YEAR OF THINKING BIG

Only one-third of all Americans enjoy a normal weight -- forcing the redesign of everything from coffins and airline seats to insurance policies and taxes in order to fit the other two-thirds.

Americans stuffing themselves with fast food are finding it harder to stuff themselves into their cars, forcing engineers to redesign the interiors.

The sale of diet books has jumped. Salads have sprung up at burger joints, but the perpetual question is: "Wanna supersize that?" And Americans overwhelmingly end up supersizing themselves.

That's been the trend for 20 years. Since 1980, the number of obese Americans has doubled, to 59 million adults.

DEALING WITH A PICKY EATER

Some children seem by nature to be picky eaters. With a little patience and some planning, you may be able to encourage even the pickiest eater to try at least a few bites of nutritious food at each meal. Parenting magazines, kids' cookbooks, Web sites, and friends and relatives can all be good sources for recipes aimed at children's tastes. Try to find recipes that contain ingredients your child likes, and remember to include her in the preparation, including menu planning. Being part of the grocery shopping, cooking, and serving may help keep her interested.

You can use your own imagination to get your child to eat healthful foods. Try shredding or chopping vegetables and adding them to pancake or muffin mixes. Grated apples make a wonderful "glue" to hold together ground beef or turkey for burgers.

Try not to let food and eating become a focus of tension between you and your child. Don't show anxiety if she doesn't eat an occasional meal, and try to relax if she prefers eating only a single food for a week.

A SPOONFUL OF CINNAMON HELPS TREAT DIABETES
By Alison McCook

People with diabetes can help keep their bodies healthy by simply adding a dash of spice to their diet, new research reports.

In a study, diabetics (news - web sites) who incorporated one gram -- equivalent to less than one-quarter teaspoon -- of cinnamon per day for 40 days into their normal diets experienced a decrease in levels of blood sugar, cholesterol and blood fats.

And for people with diabetes, the less of those substances in the body, the better.

Type 2 diabetes arises when the body loses sensitivity to insulin, a hormone that shuttles the sugars from food into body cells to be used for energy. As a result, the amount of sugar, or glucose, in the blood remains high, leading to fatigue and blurred vision. Over the long term, excess blood glucose can increase the risk of heart disease, kidney failure and blindness.

LAUGHING LINES
Laughter Is Good Medicine
**********************

An atheist professor was teaching a college class and he told the class that he was going to prove that there is no God. He said, "God, if you are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform. I'll give you 15 minutes!"

Ten minutes went by. He kept taunting God, saying,"Here I am, God. I'm still waiting." He got down to the last couple of minutes and a big 240 pound football player in the class walked up to the professor, hit him full force in the face, and sent him flying from his platform.

The professor struggled, obviously shaken and yelled, "What's the matter with you? Why did you do that?"

The football player replied, "God was busy; He sent me!"
