Lose 10-20 lbs during the holidays?!

 

Read what Sherry Brescia, author of GREAT TASTE NO PAIN has to say about a common problem of weight gain during the holiday season...

Take off 10-20 pounds during holidays
November is here, and that means the holiday season is
fast approaching.

It's a time to show caring, charity, generosity, and
kindness to our fellow humans.

It's also a time for FOOD, glorious food!  All those get-
togethers, dinners and parties with all that delicious
food...

...and for many people, that means packing on the pounds.

Sadly, I've heard scores of people say they dread the
approach of the holidays because they know they'll put on
weight and have trouble taking it off.

Know what?

It doesn't have to be that way.

It IS possible to maintain a consistent weight even
through the holidays.

You see, when you have doable standards for eating that
you will not break and live every day feeding your body the
way it was designed to be fed, excess pounds are never,
ever an issue. 

Here's why:

Your body is alkaline by design.  All of your organs and
systems work their best (perfectly, actually) in an
alkaline environment. 

When your body is too acidic, it doesn't function properly
and it begins to literally break down and fall apart.  And
you get pain, sickness, disease and...obesity.

So if you are hurting, sick or overweight, you are acidic. 

Period.

Eating 50-70+% alkaline foods and combining your foods in
the way that keeps digestive acid low is the key to
holidays (and every day) without extra poundage. 

When you eat foods that are digested with complimentary
enzymes in the stomach, digestion is a snap and your food
glides through the intestines smoothly. 

No more toxic waste build-up.

No constipation

No bloating. 

This means a trimmer, sexier you.

Plus, when you don't have overproduction of acid in your
stomach, you'll absorb more of the nutrients from your
foods, so you'll only feel hungry when you need more
nutrients, not when your stomach is empty.

In Great Taste No Pain, I'll show you the foods to eat and
the combinations to eat them in so you can feel good at
your ideal weight.  You can get it here:

=====================================
Hear remarkable success stories where people have lost so
many inches off their entire bodies it's just astounding:

=====================================
When correctly combining your foods is your way of life,
you CAN indulge in a dessert, some eggnog or other pleasure
and not worry about packing on pounds. 

I NEVER deprive myself on special occasions or holidays.
I’m looking forward to the Thanksgiving pumpkin pie and
Christmas cookies already.

But because it’s a once in a while thing, not an every day
thing, I’ll weight the same on January 1st as I do now.   

Treat your body right 12 months a year and it will return
the favor with health, energy and forgiveness for your
indulgences.

How NOT to get SICK for the next 8 weeks!

With the holidays fast approaching, it’s natural to
feel more stress than usual.

So you are now more succeptible to every virus going
around and to getting infections you’d never get
any other time of year.

Here’s why that happens:

When your nervous system picks up signs of emotional or
mental distress, it signals for the release of stress
hormones and special chemical messengers (called
neurotransmitters).

These neurotransmitters speed to different areas of your
body and cause various reactions.

That’s why your heart rate increases when you’re scared or
your stomach gets rumbly when you’re anxious.

http://www.greattastenopain.com/cmdt.asp?id=943215

These stress hormones can also lead to headaches, high
blood pressure and digestive disorders (like IBS).

They also affect your gut flora, and that’s where 80% of
your immune system is.

For example, strains of the harmful bacteria E. coli grow
faster in an environment that contains the stress hormones
epinephrine (adrenaline) or norepinephrine (noradrenaline).

In addition, some scientists believe that when we’re
stressed, our nervous system “talks” to our gut microbes,
telling certain (bad) ones to multiply and other (good)
ones to limit their growth.

Having a greater concentration of harmful bacteria in your
intestines makes you more susceptible to bacterial
infections and viruses of all types. This happens for two
reasons:

1- You now don’t have enough good bacteria to fight off
the dangerous pathogens you ingest
2- The bad bacteria have eaten away at your gut wall and
made it porous, so dangerous toxins can now seep out and
travel all through your body, making you ill

Plus having more harmful bacteria in the gut also affects
your immune system’s regulatory T cells. That means your
immune system will be less effective, leading to increased
inflammation (and pain) all over your body.

And heaven help you if you do get sick and take
antibiotics. While they will certainly help kill your
infection, they’ll also cause the bacterial balance in your
gut to even further out of whack…

…which means that you’re likely to get sick AGAIN very
soon.

It’s essential to keep your gut flora balanced all year
long, but especially around the holidays with all the added
stressors in your days.

Super Shield Pharmaceutical Grade Probiotic formula can
help you accomplish this important goal.
http://www.bluerockholistics.com/product/pro-ss.asp

Super Shield contains 13 pharmaceutical-grade strains of
the world’s most potent, effective beneficial bacteria.

These good guys line the walls of your intestines like an
army, ready to fight off dangerous invaders. Plus they

wall, crowding the bad guys and starving them.

They also help strengthen the gut wall, so toxins are less
likely to leak out and cause illness.

Plus Super Shield helps make your digestion more
efficient…which can be helpful when you’re indulging in
your favorite holiday meal.

Hi Sherry,

I have Rosacea and used to have to take low doses of
antibiotics and put cream on my face…a life sentence.

After one month of Super Shield (which I took for other
reasons) I noticed to my suprise my Rosacea just cleared up
without any other meds.

Additionally I have more energy and as a wedding
photographer I need it. Even my Crohns is much better.

What does your spleen really do??

Here’s what Sherry Brescia, author of Great Taste, No Pain has to say about the spleen’s function.

 

The spleen is an organ about the size of your fist and
sits on the left side of your body, under the rib cage.
It’s part of the lymphatic system.      

Now if you’re like most people, you know of the lymphatic
system (especially when you have swollen glands) but you’re
not 100% sure what it does.  

So first here’s a very brief biology lesson about the
lymphatic system:

================
Lymphatic System
================

Your lymphatic system is like a staff of maids and
housekeepers inside your body.

This staff is made up of countless nodes and glands, the
thymus gland, the thoracic duct, the spleen, bone marrow,
tonsils and miles of lymphatic vessels.  

These lymphatic vessels contain 3 times more lymph fluid
than blood–that alone should tell you how important the
lymphatic system is.

The maids and housekeepers do their job by filtering and
purifying your bloodstream, cleansing wastes from your
tissues, organs and 100 trillion cells, and searching out
and destroying any harmful invaders that might enter your
body.

Then they gather the wastes and, just like dumping dirty
dishwater down the sink, they bring the wastes to one of
your body’s four “exits”–the lungs, skin, bladder and
bowels–for elimination from your body.  

The lymphatic system is truly the heart of the immune
system because of its vital role in keeping your body clean
and destroying dangerous substances and antigens.

Now on to the spleen.

==========
The Spleen
==========

Your spleen has many important functions including:

* Filtering out and destroying old and damaged blood cells
* Helping to prevent infection by producing white blood
cells (called lymphocytes) that act as a first line of
defense against invading viruses, bacteria and other
pathogens
* Storing blood and platelets (the cells that help your
blood clot)
* Acting as an intermediary between your immune system and
your brain

As you can see, your spleen is not something you want to
be stressed or not working right.  Your state of health
depends heavily on your body’s ability to fight infections,
and your spleen plays a vital role in that process.

===============
Enlarged Spleen
===============

Sometimes the spleen can become enlarged, which
compromises the functioning of your lymphatic system.

One of the most common causes of an enlarged spleen is
infectious mononucleosis (“mono”), but it can be caused by
these factors as well:

– Bacterial infections, such as syphilis or an infection
of your heart’s inner lining (endocarditis)
– Parasitic infections, such as malaria
– Cirrhosis and other diseases of the liver
– Hemolytic anemia – a condition characterized by
premature destruction of red blood cells
– Blood cancers, such as leukemia and Hodgkin’s disease
– Acidity in the body

As your spleen gets larger, it begins to mess up and
filter out the good, normal red blood cells as well as
abnormal ones.  This reduces the number of healthy cells in
your bloodstream.

It also traps too many platelets.  Eventually, the excess
blood cells and platelets can clog up your spleen, further
interfering with its normal functioning.

Another risk with an enlarged spleen is possible rupture.
A ruptured spleen can cause life-threatening bleeding into
your abdominal cavity, and the release of toxic wastes
throughout your body.

==================
Spleen and Acidity
==================

Like all of your organs, your spleen is designed to
function best in an alkaline environment.

When your body is acidic, you place an impossible burden
on the spleen to do its job, and it can eventually become
enlarged or simply slow way down.  

A poorly functioning spleen can reduce the number of
healthy red blood cells, platelets and white cells in your
bloodstream, so you can develop anemia or increased
bleeding.  

You also become susceptible to frequent, dangerous, or
even life-threatening infections.

=========================
Keep Your Spleen Alkaline
=========================

Good spleen health is yet another great reason to keep
your body as alkaline as possible.  ALL of your organs work
best when your body is alkaline, and the spleen is no
exception.

<Are you starting to see a recurring theme here? I hope so.>

If you want to enjoy any measure of good health, live pain-
free with little or no need for medications and enjoy life
well into your golden years, you must commit to eating to
minimize the acidity in your body.

It’s not a question of if…you must do this to have good
health.

Your body is alkaline by design, and the best way to keep
it alkaline is to eat mainly alkaline foods (at least 60-
70%) and correctly combine all of your meals.

Great Taste No Pain shows you how easy that is.

http://www.greattastenopain.com/cmdt.asp?id=943215

 

GTNP spells out exactly which foods are acid-creating and
which are alkaline, so you can easily make sure you’re
getting the right ratio.  

It has charts that list what foods you can pair up
together, so you can continue to eat many of your
favorites, and your meal planning will be a cinch.

Plus the recipe book will give you 112 delectable reasons
to be glad you are eating for great health.

To your health,

Sherry Brescia

PS:  Ila said goodbye to 62 years of digestive pain:

*******************

Dear Sherry,

I am 71 yrs. old and have had digestive problems since I
was probably 8 or 9 years old.  I’ve never had any help,
nothings worked.  

Recently I wouldn’t go to the doctor and my husband
threatened to call 911, that’s how much pain I was in.

I decided to go on the internet and see what I could find,
and thank God, I found your site  http://www.greattastenopain.com/cmdt.asp?id=943215
I was skepical, but hurting bad, so I sent for your
program.

When I received it, I had to adjust it for my husband.  He
has chronic kidney disease, but by making sure of the fluid
intake, we are both on it.

In two days I was pain free, and I’m feeling better every
day.  I have energy I haven’t had in years.  

I’m telling all my friends about it and that it’s no big
fuss to eat this way–it’s things I’ve always loved, I just
needed to combine them right.

My daughter’s an R.N. and she’s a health nut, she’s so
happy we’re eating right.  It’s really easier to prepare
these meals than the way we used to eat.

I call this my labor of love, love of life and love of my
man.

Thank you again Sherry, God Bless you.

Sincerely,

Fats – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly!

The good, the bad and the ugly fats –
http://www.greattastenopain.com/cmdt.asp?id=943215

 

One of the more dangerous dietary trends today is the low
fat or no fat obsession.

Look at the grocery stores shelves and you’ll see
thousands of products that are touted as low-fat, non-fat
or reduced fat.

But what so many fat-resistant people don’t realize is
that ALL fat is not the enemy.

Just the bad fats are.

Bad fats are saturated fats and trans fats.  These fats
raise your cholesterol, clog your arteries, pack on the
pounds and shorten your life. 

Here’s a quick low down on the bad fats:

1) Saturated fats:  These come from animals – all types of
meat and dairy products (including lard, butter and cream).
Other sources are palm and palm kernal oil.

2) Trans-fats:  They come from hydrogenated or partially
hydrogenated oils (like shortening and margarine). margarine
Hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils are used in
most processed snack foods, cookies, side dishes, snack
cakes and most bakery goods.

Now, food manufacturers know that people are leary of
fats, and since they want to make sure their profits stay
high, they create low-fat or non-fat versions of their
products.  You’ll even see them proudly proclaim “No Trans
Fats!” on many of the labels and boxes. 

What they fail to tell you is that in place of the fat,
they’ve put in…

Sugars. 

That’s right.  Lots and lots of sugars.  They’ve got to
make the stuff taste good somehow, and sugar does the
trick.  Remember, low-fat or non-fat doesn’t mean zero
calories.

And most times the sugar comes in the form of high
fructose corn syrup–the single worst form of sugar on the
planet.

So it’s basically smoke and mirrors…”It’s GOOD for you!”

Uhhhh, no.

They also add artificial flavorings and chemicals when
sugar won’t do. 

Bottom line here is to stay away from foods with bad fats
AND their low-fat or non-fat cousins–neither will allow
you to have any measure of decent health so you can do all
the fun, wonderful things you want to do in your very long
life. 

Now for the good fats:olive-oil

Good fats play a VITAL role in our bodies, and not getting
enough of them leads to nutritional deficiency,
inflammation and tissue degeneration.

Here are just some of the amazing things good fats do:

* They help construct cell membranes, produce hormones and
eliminate acidity. 

* They protect your organs, help keep you warm and help
your body absorb nutrients.

* They lubricate your joints, provide energy and help
protect against heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke,
arteriosclerosis and blood clots.

* They can help relieve arthritis, asthma, PMS, allergies,
skin problems and behavioral disorders.

* They boost brain function.

Good fats are also called essential fatty acids,
monunsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.

Raw (not roasted) nuts, seeds and avocados are all great
sources of good fats. 

Fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring and trout are
also sources of good fats.

Good fat oils include olive oil, safflower oil, soybean
oil, borage oil, fish oil, evening primrose oil and
grapeseed oil.

Just remember, these oils are good unless they have been
hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated.  Then, they are
very, very bad.

When shopping for oils, look for those that are cold-
pressed and are in a dark container. –they have not been
subjected to heating, are the freshest and are less likely
to be rancid.

The recipes in the Great Taste No Pain system   http://www.greattastenopain.com/cmdt.asp?id=943215

feature
good, healthy oils and natural good fat food sources.  The
manuals also provide suggestions for delicious alternatives
(to bad fats like margarine and shortening).

You don’t need to make all fat your enemy any longer.  Let
Great Taste No Pain be your guide to enjoying health-
enhancing good fats.

Spicy foods causing heartburn symptoms?

Filed under: feel better,Health and Nutrition,Uncategorized — Traci @ 1:53 am

spices1

More words of  wisdom from Ms. Brescia….  good info about our misconceptions about the standard American diet and where those ideas originated.  Read on…

Many people are under the false impression that eating
them will make their acid reflux, ulcer or hiatal hernia
act up.
http://www.greattastenopain.com/cmdt.asp?id=943215
The truth is herbs and spices have been used for thousands
of years for both flavoring and medicinal purposes.
http://www.greattastenopain.com/cmdt.asp?id=943215
To your spicy pain-free life,

But they won’t. 

With the exception of curry powder and iodized table salt,
ALL herbs and spices (including garlic) are alkaline to the
body…meaning good for you, your pH and your stomach. 

The reason herbs and spices have gotten their bad rap is
because our good old standard American diet needed a
scapegoat.

Here’s a little history to show what I mean: 

Prior to the 20th century, people ate simple meals that
featured fresh foods, most of which was grown on the family
farm or purchased fresh each day from the market.

Processed food arrived on the scene in the year 1900.
Food manufacturers began developing “better living through
chemistry” products like artificial sweeteners (saccharin),
taste additives (MSG), partially hydrogenated vegetable
shortening and margarine. 

Also, refined white sugar replaced molasses as the leading
sweetener in the American diet.

In 1911 a grain-milling process was discovered that
stripped away the germ and outer layers of wheat grain
(where the nutrients are).  The result was nutrient-poor,
acid-creating white bread and refined white flour.

Each decade that followed brought new “technological
advances” that would further destroy the naturally occuring
nutrients in food, while adding in more chemicals (making
them more acidic and toxic to the body).
 
Then to makes things worse, in the year 1956 the US
Department of Agriculture began a huge campaign telling
Americans to eat foods from the 4 different food groups at
every meal. 

The result of all of this?  People began eating horribly
mis-combined and processed foods, then had World War III
going on in their chest or gut afterwards. 

Well, most people and medical professionals thought that
it can’t possibly be the food–so spices took the blame.

And that old wives’ tale has continued to be standard
medical advice for decades–if you’ve got an ulcer, acid
reflux or hiatal hernia, 99.9% of doctors will still tell
you to avoid herbs and spices.

When in reality what you need to avoid is acid-creating
foods and food combinations (like I teach you how to do in
Great Taste No Pain.

They are used heavily in Ayurvedic medicine, the 3,000-
year old ancient Hindu art of health, medicine and
prolonging life. 
 
Not only are they alkaline to the body, but many have
their own unique health benefits.  For example:

– Oregano is a potent antiviral, antibacterial and
antifungal agent.

– Garlic helps protect the heart, has anti-inflammatory
properties and can boost your immune system.

– Cilantro helps move mercury out of the body’s tissues.

– Cinnamon has shown to help reduce blood sugar levels in
type II diabetics.

– Cayenne (red) pepper is used to stimulate the
circulatory as well as digestive systems.

– Marjoram helps promote good digestion and relieve
diarrhea, and works on the breathing passages by loosening
mucus.

– Nutmeg helps stimulate the brain, and also works as an
anti-inflammatory.

– Basil has anti-inflammatory properties and is a source
for Vitamin K, iron, calcium, vitamin A, manganese,
magnesium, vitamin C, and potassium.

And that’s just a few herbs and spices.

Plus let’s not forget how they make food taste fantastic.

The Great Taste No Pain recipe book features many health
and taste enhancing fresh herbs and spices in many of its
recipes, so you’ll enjoy every single bite of your pain-
free meals.

You’ll see for yourself very quickly that you CAN eat
herbs and spices and feel great.

Dairy or No Dairy..That is the Question!

Because I’m on a quest to end my stomach misery and endless tummy toils, I thought I’d pass this along.   I’ve always wondered if I’d be a bad mommy to take milk away from my kids.  I did, though, once when my oldest child was almost two. She had a rash around her mouth and on her arms, and I just believed deep down in my soul that it was milk.  When I finally had her allergy tested, I was proven wrong and I was overwhelmed with guilt for depriving her of the one thing that for centuries has been the main necessity for children.   But read these testimonies and lestters…..makes me wonder about my other daughter’s ear infections as well as my own digestive issues.  What do you think?

The question of dairy products:

I got a great question yesterday that’s worth sharing: 

*******************

I have recommended your eating plan to several people
because I believe it works.  Today I did it again and I was
asked why dairy products are discouraged on this plan and I
didn’t know how to answer. 

Would you please respond so that I can share it with my
friend?  Thank you.  Margaret”

*******************

SB:  Absolutely, Margaret.  There are so many health
problems caused by dairy products, it’s hard to know where
to begin.  But I’ll try.

Cow’s milk (which includes skim, 1%, 2%, whole, chocolate
milk, light cream, heavy cream and half and half) and all
other dairy products (including cheese, ice cream, sour
cream, cream cheese, custard and yogurt) are ALL acid
forming foods. 

Note that this includes raw dairy products too—they
might be more “pure” and haven’t been subjected to the
denaturing of pasteurization, but they still are acid-
forming.

There are mountains of studies linking the consumption of
dairy products to heart disease, cancer, arthritis,
migraines, allergies, asthma and other respiratory
conditions.

These are all classic examples of illnesses caused or
worsened by acid.

Dairy products also coat your mucus membranes and result
in thick, slow-moving mucus build-up. 

This is the primary reason why so many children constantly
have, runny, stuffy noses and ear infections–their bodies
can’t deal with the mucus and end up all inflamed.

Unfortunately, mainstream medicine hasn’t been educated in
how foods affect the body (odd but true)…so most doctors,
educated primarily in drug therapy, just prescribe
antibiotics or create small holes in kids’ ear drums and
insert tubes (called a myringtomy) to drain the pus and
mucus. 

So they ignore the cause and mask the symptoms, and your
child suffers as a result.  Often with permanent hearing
loss in later life.

Listen, if your kids have frequent colds, stuffy noses,
sinus infections and ear infections, here’s something that
will actually help them–take them off of dairy and you’ll
see a HUGE difference.

Dairy products are also high in cholesterol and fat, and
contain no fiber whatsoever. 

Now, the Diary Council wants to make sure huge profits
continue to be made, so dairy is touted as a health food. 

Attractive, slim celebrities are paid bundles to paint
fake milk moustaches on their upper lips and pose with the
caption “Body by milk.”

That sure is an interesting claim… 

Cow’s milk, by nature is designed to take an animal (a
cow) that weighs between 80-100 pounds at birth to a 550-
pound calf within 6-10 months.

Cow’s milk also has 300 times more casein than human milk.
Casein is a thick, gooey substance that helps form huge
bovine bones. 

But inside a human, it’s nearly impossible to digest and
creates a tremendous amount of acid in the stomach.

Now, one of the scare tactics used by the dairy industry
is that dairy products are essential to make sure you have
enough calcium. 

This is simply not true.  Patently false.  The truth is–
and this is backed up by the medical records of millllions
of arthritis sufferers–the more milk you drink, the less
calcium you have in your bones.  Fact.

This is partly because the calcium in dairy products (or
any other source such as supplements) is basically useless
in an acidic body. Dairy takes calcium, it doesn’t give it.

You see, when your body is overrun with acid, it leeches
alkaline minerals, including calcium, from your bones and
organs to neutralize the acid.   

So you don’t get the benefit of the calcium from dairy or
any calcium supplement either, because it’s used up in the
fight against acid too.

There are literally hundreds of thousands of pages written
on the dangers of dairy products.

The bottom line is this:  Dairy products are NOT good for
you.  They are NOT a health food.  And they’re NOT
essential to get calcium.

They are the perfect food to eat if you want to be sick,
overweight and diseased.

Now if you’re having dairy withdrawal just from reading
this, relax… 

Great Taste No Pain is here to help.
http://www.greattastenopain.com/great.asp

If you must have dairy…if you “can’t live without it,”
the Great Taste No Pain manuals show you how to eat them to
minimize their harmful effects.

GTNP also suggests delicious healthy alternatives to dairy
that you’ll truly love.

And if calcium is your priority, you’re all set because
the GTNP recipe book contains delicious recipes featuring
alkaline, calcium-rich foods.  And with your body being
more alkaline by eating the GTNP way, you’ll actually be
able to USE that calcium too.

To your health,

Hi Sherry-

I am a Registered Nurse so when I woke up with left lower
quadrant pain Sunday morning I suspected Diverticulitis. 

Monday I went to see my doctor who agreed with my
diagnosis.  I declined antibiotics & left his office with a
requisition to go for a barium enema-can’t wait for that! 

Knowing all that I do about the wonders of modern medicine
& pharmaceuticals I went on the internet Monday evening to
educate myself a little more & came across your web-site.  

I had nothing to lose but pain so I downloaded your white
paper “Pain Free in 1 Day” and started to follow it the
next morning-Tuesday Feb 24/09. 

By Friday the 27th all my pain was gone & so was the awful
gas I’ve had for the past 10 months. 

I am feeling so good that I may just have to cancel that
barium enema! 

Thanks so much-Alisa B. R.N.

I, Too, Jumped on the Bandwagon…

That’s right. I, like many others, gave up facebook for Lent. At the time, however, I thought it was my own, original idea. I was inspired by the realization that I was devoting way too much time to a totally non-productive pass-time while I was slowly going broke and watching my house fall apart around me. There was laundry that needed folding, floor to be swept, the poor dog needed walking, and here I sat staring at meaningless updates for hours a day.

Don’t get me wrong, facebook is fascinating! I’m thrilled to have contact with so many people I’d have otherwise never seen again, and I say that with complete certainly. How awesome is it to be surprised by a photo of yourself in kindergarten with a kid from twenty-five years ago – a memory lost until it magically appears on your blackberry VOILA!!

As I was contemplating what to give up for Lent this year, it was so obvious to me… a true test of my will. I knew it would be hard, but I was surprised how easy it truly was after the first day. I just disabled notifications on my blackberry and email, and when I walk by my husband chatting with his FB friends, I take a deep breath and remember my faith.

Pretty sure come April 12th, I’ll ease right back into my constantly vibrating blackberry mode, but maybe with a whole new attitude.
