During our Fiji cleanse, we learnt all about oils and fats that can heal your body. We have always included natural oils and fats into our diet. It was great to know that we were on the right track. We also discovered that some oils can heal the body and some can damage the body. So depending on what you choose to eat and how you prepare it, your food will either nourish your body or break it down.
Your body needs healthy fats and oils for every cell to function properly. They help to increase your energy levels and metabolic rate. They nourish your hair, skin and nails so you’ll look fabulous. They can even help to lift depression. They can lower your blood pressure and balance your emotions. Healthy oils actually help to burn fat. One point that really jumped out to me:
Your Brain Does Not Function Without Essential Fatty Acids!
Essential fatty acids are the healthy fats. Your body cannot make them so you need to consciously include them in your diet. There are two kinds, Omega 3 and Omega 6. It’s important that you have them in the right balance. Often western diets are low in Omega 3 and high in Omega 6. An imbalance can create a lot of major health issues. The healthy ratio between the two is 2:1, twice as much Omega 3 to Omega 6.
The essential fatty acids you can include in your diet are flax oil, soybeans, olive oil, walnuts, avocados, seaweed, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and almonds. Hemp oil also is very healing, although be aware that it may show up in drug screens.
The oil we were given during the cleanse was called Udo’s Oil. Wow, this stuff is amazing. Dr Udo Eramsmu, Ph.D. is an authority on fats and oils. The short story is that Dr Udo studied biochemistry and genetics. He was poisoned while working with pesticides and turned to nutrition to heal his body. As a result he has made a full recovery. He has become an expert in his field and developed Udo’s Oil.
We were taking Udo’s Oil three times a day during our cleanse. We were given a small piece of pineapple to eat after it. The pineapple just makes the oil easier to drink. I discovered the most amazing thing while I was having Udo’s Oil – I didn’t need to wear any moisturizer on my face or my body! Just a note here, this is the first time in my life that I have not worn moisturizer. Even Jurgen’s skin looked really smooth and healthy. We were both glowing and actually looked less crinkly! The oil was feeding our body’s from the inside out.
We found Udo’s Oil when we got home. It’s was around $48 for 500ml, at one of our local health food shops. I suggest if you are interesting in trying it, that you shop around. I have found a few places since that are cheaper. It was also available online for around $78 for 1 litre. Make sure you keep the bottle in the fridge. The light and air will destroy healthy oils very quickly as they are a very pure oil.
Jurgen and I are both having a shot of Udo’s twice a day with the pineapple chaser. I have started wearing a little moisturizer again, more out of habit than necessity. I’m also finding I don’t need to wear much make up at all anymore. I’m 42 years old and my skin has never looked better. Best beauty secret ever!
