this week is cleanse week on dr. oz

today (4/30/2013) was Dr. Alejandro Junger talking about his 3-day cleanse and a few women who had followed it and how they felt better, slept better, had nicer skin and there were a couple women who have followed the program for 30+ days and their better health–one was suffering from autoimmune disorder diagnosed as rheumatoid arthritis and on medication, etc. and has been off medication for 3 months now and lost 30 pounds.  Dr. Junger talks about leaky gut and healing the gut and how the gut is the second brain because “around the intestines is a huge nervous system, that there’s more neurons around the intestines than in the brain in your skull.”  Junger says, “Fixing the gut is the first thing–that’s where health and disease begin.”

and tomorrow is Deepak Chopra’s stress cleanse with meditation–in the commercial Doctor Oz states “Meditation causes brain cells to regrow.”  Regrow!!!

and there’s juicing on Thursday’s episode!  🙂  I am a huge fan of juicing.


“Every flower has its fairy…


(***I found a flower fairy wearing a yellow dress in a pansy in my garden 🙂

“Every flower has its fairy, every tree its spirit.”

“Every plant–every aspect of the natural world–has some spirit, some energy associated with it.  What we call the fairies and elves are just a small part of The Realm, but they are all Mother Earth’s children….They hold the key to many mysteries of life.  They stimulate intuition, creativity, and artistic energies.  They hold the secrets to the true healing powers of plants, stones, and all of Nature.”

“Sometimes in life it is more important to feel than to know.  By stirring some of those forgotten embers, by remembering what we felt and knew as a child, we rediscover the joys and mysteries of the world.  We open ourselves to the spirits of Nature and all her elements.  Remember that we can starve as much from a lack of wonder as we can from a lack of food.  Nature and all of her spirits keep the wonder in us alive.”
