You are NOT what you eat.........
You are what your body can USE from what you eat!
Your body is so miraculous that even if it's fed twinkies and soda it will manage to grow.  I'm not advocating eating a diet filled with sugars, high fructose corn syrup and food coloring (aka Junk!) I am just pointing out that our body does its best to take from those foods whatever it can to create new cells for your tissues and organs on a daily basis. The digestive system that absorbs and distributes nutrients to all of our body parts is under the masterful direction of our nerve system. The healthier your nerve system functions, the better your body can digest, absorb and distribute the nutrients you supply it. Can you imagine the possibilities of our amazing bodies if we provided only the best ingredients?
Earlier this year I gave up all my 'Junk' food and drinks to experience a 21 day
purification program. I gave up all caffeine, alcohol, sugar, grains, dairy and shellfish.
As part of my purification program, I ate as many vegetables and fruits as I desired along with SP (Standard Process) complete protein shakes 2-3x per day, which are made from organically grown vegetable and rice proteins. In addition, for the first 7 days I took 21 SP Cleanse capsules daily which are full of botanicals and herbs to cleanse my stomach, liver, gall bladder and intestines. After the first 10 days I began to add 1-2 servings of lean protein to my diet of organic vegetables and fruit.
During this experience, I made sure my nerve system was functioning at its best by
having it checked regularly by my chiropractor. And as a result, my body responded inkind by dropping 12 pounds and losing 2 inches off my waist. The interesting thing
about this process was that I had no expectations going into the purification. I had
always wanted to try it and it seemed like the right time. It was so fascinating, by
ingesting the quality of ingredients in the Standard Process program and the organic fruits and vegetables, my body’s nerve system knew what to do and how to handle detoxifying.  In my entire adult life, never had my cholesterol been below 227 and it has been as high as 332. I always have shrugged it off as familial genetics. After detoxifying, the cholesterol levels in my blood dropped 64 points to its lowest level in my adult life: 191.  I have never felt better.
As long as our nerve system is functioning clearly, the best organic vegetables, spices and fruits yield the most favorable biochemistry in all our bodies. We are not what we eat, but what our body can utilize from what we eat. What we choose really does makes a difference!
