Arthritis, asthma, headaches, psoriasis, cancer, intestinal gas, osteoporosis, heart disease, weight gain, PMS, candidiasis, tooth decay, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, cancer sores, cataracts, gallstones, kidney stones, and cystic fibrosis are all diseases and conditions that are negatively affected by the intake of sugar. Dr. David Servan-Schriber says, in his excellent book Anti- Cancer: “Sugar is the fuel of cancer.” Sugar come in many forms; sucrose, fructose, alcohol, etc.
Refined sugar is one of the worst poisons you can put into your body. The consumption of sugar and sugar like substances suppresses the immune system almost instantly, lowering the body’s natural defenses and making it less capable of fighting harmful pathogens. Especially sensitive are kids, who often become hyperactive after having eaten it. The exclusion of sugar in all its forms from the diet, can improve these and many other conditions markedly. In many cases, a sugarless diet can eradicate the suffering altogether when combined with a well-balanced (read mostly vegan) diet and healthy habits as TIME reported in this issue.
In total, the consumption of sugar lowers your immune function by roughly 4 hours, with the lowest immune functioning occurring 2 hours after sugar consumption depending on how much water you drink and what you eat. So if you find yourself getting sick after the holidays, you know exactly why! By comparison, when starches (complex carbohydrates) are consumed, your immune functioning actually heightens for some time before falling back down to normal. But as you may already know, getting sugar out of your diet is not an easy task. It’s one of the most highly used additives around, showing up even in meat as we said. But at least you can avoid adding more to your diet. It’s probably the most important detox we can do.

Naturopaths who deeply believe Natural Immunity is still the best, and therefore we work in defense of it.
Since 20+ years we have successfully been consultants in the natural health sector to support individuals and we are in particular working with entrepreneurs and professionals. Our mission is to defend natural health, the only one that really works so far. We mainly but not entirely use Eastern philosophy such as Ayurveda, TCM, Yoga, Thai chi, Falun Gong, and only honest modern science.
Everyone can heal naturally, it's what bodies and (free) minds want. Our O• Method is based on physics, chemistry and biology with emphasis on the first one as the rest often follow naturally. We divide our work in three parts: Body-Mind-Soul. To allow them all to detox and let go we work with energy (Prana, Xi, Vitality, Spirit, Pneuma or whatever you call the life force, it's the same force mentioned in ancient texts) to heal on all levels, i.e. from chronic disease, toxicity, depression and traumas using our own method, reaching 96% success rate which is unheard of by others in our sector. Would you know of anyone with that result, let us know.
Considering that we invented and dumped >120.000 (petro)chemically derived substances since 1945, of which many are very toxic, getting healthy will most likely include a good old body detox sooner or later.
My love for Ayurveda started in 1993 with Deepak Chopra and after a few turns in life I quit my job as a Nordic Brand Manager and BI strategist at the largest Nordic telecom operator and re-schooled in natural medicine. Besides Dr. Chopra I have studied Dr. Lad, Dr. Siva (Pune, India) and other prominent teachers in their field, but the real difference comes with a practiced. I added nutrition, Orthomolecular Medicine with Dr. Nielsen (USA/Spain) and herbalism.
Today we teach those whom want to continue our work and we love to dig down in etymology and the original (mainly Avestan, Pali and Sanskrit) scripts to understand the words fully and I fall in love with the concepts over and over again for every sutra. This love affair that created a few books (Amazon), presentations, essayes and many events and consultations, is still giving us Yang-Yin balance and inspiration. I guess with that we are recognizing the value of Dao De Ching 💚🌿💜
