Apologies for skipping my January Newsletter! I was totally in holiday mode with eight birthdays in the family over January and February, (including my own!) as well as the Engagement of Mark’s daughter on our property two weeks ago!
With such a dry summer here in Elaine, our job was to keep the lawns green for the big day and as you can see from the photos, we did a ripper job.
I made great plum jam and learned to be EXTREMELY creative with zucchini recipes! Tomatoes are in endless supply too at the moment and I would appreciate some recipes for relish if any of you have a good one!
I’m finding myself drinking lots of Body Balance this month, some days up to 240 ml and other days nearly half a bottle!!! My body just seems to be soaking it up. Did you know that Nori, one of the seaweeds in Body Balance yields twice the amount of Vitamin C as tangerines and retains its vitamin C profile even when heated? It also contains daily recommended amounts of Vitamin A, B1 and B2. No wonder I’m soaking it all up with the amount of activity going on in our lives, we are definitely needing the extra nutritional support. Even Mark has been drinking more over the past few weeks! The secret is always trusting your body and allowing it to guide you. So, when I have a craving for extra Body Balance, I know I am depleted somewhere and allow myself to drink more.
I have also noticed that I didn’t gain weight over the holiday season, in fact I lost about a kilo! Let’s talk a little about Body Balance and weight loss!
People often tell me that they lose weight when they are taking Body Balance regularly and they ask me why this is.
There are many reasons for this.
Firstly, toxins are stored in our fat cells. Because seaweed is a detoxifier and chelator and draws out heavy metals from our cells, one of the first things people notice is they lose weight as the toxins are released. The fat cells release these toxins and shrink. Then there are seaweeds such as Dulse, that balance the thyroid gland. An underactive thyroid produces weight gain so as the thyroid starts to function properly and efficiently, weight is no longer stored.
There is Chromium too in Body Balance that reduces sugar cravings so you may notice you are not going for the sweets (high in sugar and fat) as much and starting to make healthier food choices.
Norwegian Kelp is another winner and abundant in Body Balance. Not only does Norwegian Kelp alone contain 60 trace minerals, 12 vitamins and 20 essential amino acids, it has also been used to treat a variety of ailments including arthritis pain, liver function, heart disease, high cholesterol, constipation and of course WEIGHT LOSS!
Vanadium and Zinc are two other important minerals in Body Balance that we need to avoid obesity and weight gain.
Aloe Vera of course aids in peristalsis and is known to heal and support the GI tract and keep you regular.
So, when you take your liquid gold daily, as your body requires it, different for each person, you may begin to notice that your body shape starts to change in a positive way for you. For those of you who need to gain weight, there is a mysterious way in which this will happen for you too!
Enjoy these last warm days and I’ll connect with you next month!
Till next time,
