Beauty Secret #5: Coconuts can SAVE your Life and make you Beautiful and Thin.!

Coconuts are one of the greatest gifts on this planet. No matter where you are, what you have done, how much you have mistreated your body, fresh young coconuts and coconut oil can save your life.

Young coconut water is identical to human blood plasma, making it the universal donor. Plasma makes up 55% of human blood. The remaining 45% of our blood consists of hemoglobin, which is essentially transformed plant blood (chlorophyll). When we consume a drink consisting of 55% fresh coconut water and 45% fresh green-leaf juice, we give ourselves and instant blood transfusion.

The soft spoon meat of the coconut consists of mostly pure, raw saturated fat, which has the most remarkable ability to rejuvenate oxidative tissue damage, improve functioning of the nervous system and restore male sexual fluids.

Whenever we are in tropical countries, we should drink and eat at least three or four young coconuts each day.

Now coconut oil/butter is MY REAL SECRET. Coconut oil contains no cholesterol and actually helps to lower cholesterol levels. It outperforms cold-pressed olive oil in this regard. People from coconut-eating cultures in the tropic have consistently lower cholesterol levels that people in the U.S.

The cholesterol-lowering properties of coconut oil are a direct result of its ability to stimulate thyroid function. In the presence of adequate thyroid hormone, cholesterol is converted by enzymatic processes into necessary anti-aging steroids, progesterone, DHEA and pregnenolone. These substances are required to help prevent heart disease, senility, obesity, cancer, and other diseases associated with aging and degeneration.

Pregnenolone is a major factor that gives coconut oil its beautifying qualities. Pregnenolone improves circulation in the skin, gives the face a lift, restores sagging skin and reduces bags under the eyes by promoting the contractions of muscle-like cells.

Consuming coconut oil regularly restores thyroid function, often help relieve hypothyroidism, and actually increases the metabolic rate leading to WEIGHT LOSS.

Repairing and nourishing the skin with coconut oil should be approached by both eating coconut oil and massaging it into the skin. Coconut oil reverses the tissue-damaging process by displacing cooked oil from the tissues and providing fat-soluble vitamins, minerals, and supernutrition factors directly to the damaged tissue. It is easily absorbed by the skin. It prevents stretch marks and lightens existing ones. It is an excellent lip balm. Its antiseptic elements keep the skin young and healthy and relatively free from infections. All of these factors make coconut oil ideal for massage and massage therapists.

I recommend eating at least 3 tablespoons a day. I use it like butter. I spread it on my sprouted wheat toast in the morning and add it to steamed veggies in the evening.

Beauty Secret #4: 7-Day Raw-Food Weight Loss Cleanse!

Even thought they call this the 7-day weight loss plan, I have been taking these supplements and eating mostly raw food for over 2 months now and I continue to shrink. It truly is my secret.

This 7-day weight-loss plan works best while eating 100% raw-foods for 3 meals each day, 7-days in a row. In addition to raw-plant-food, during the 7-day plan, only enzymes, probiotics, Sun is Shining Superfood orPure Synergy, and water (with MSM powder) are included in the diet.

Daily Supplement Intake for the 7-day Weight-Loss Cleanse.

Enzymes - 1 to 3 with meals, 1 - 2 between meals, and 1-2 at around 3 am (if you can get up at that time).
Probiotics - 1 -2 between meals, and 1-3 at bedtime.
MSM - add one teaspoon of MSM crystals (powder) to each liter of water you drink.
Sun is Shining Superfood or Pure Synergy - 3-6 tablespoons with coconut water or fruit smoothie in the morning. If possible, add 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil to this smoothie (to help speed up metabolism). The high mineral and protein content of these powdered superfoods helps to cleanse toxins without making you feel depleted or weak and helps to balance the sugar in fruit (essentially, these superfoods decrease sugar highs and lows).

Remember to start with a small dosage and increase slowly throughout the week. These supplements may be taken together when appropriate.

Also remember the two major food groups to limit and/or eliminate from the diet in order to lose weight are:

1. Cooked starches. This includes: baked potatoes, rice, beer, bread, pasta, corn chips, potato chips, etc. These foods have a high glycemic index (they contain a high amount of sugar - starch is turned into sugar when heated). If this sugar is not used by the body, it is converted into fat. Those who excessively eat these types of foods and do not exercise will accumulate layers of fat under the dermal surface in the form of cellulite.

2. Cooked fat. This includes: high-fat meats (bacon, hot dogs, etc), cooked oil, soy products, pasteurized dairy products, and roasted nuts. Cooked fat is very difficult for the body to metabolize because it is not miscible with water. Stores of undigested cooked fats are retained by the body in the form of flab and plaque deposits in the arteries. Stored fat becomes most noticeable as cellulite on the legs and tummy area.

Remember to drink twice as much water as normally recommended while cleansing. Take your total body weight and divide it by 4. This is the amount of water (in ounces) that you should normally drink a day. While cleansing you should double this number.

To see get more detailed information about this diet please purchase the Eating for Beauty book by David Wolfe.

*The Beauty Enzymes are currently out of stock until June 30th. Feel free to use other digestive enzymes until they are available. I highly recommend stocking up on them when they do come in, they are the best on the planet.

Beauty Secret #3: How to Grow Long,Thick & Dark Eyelashes!

Today I want to share with you one of my best beauty secrets. I have used this product every day for the past 3 years.

When I was in High School I had the shortest eye lashes. I was so jealous of boys who had long thick eye lashes without even trying. I tried every kind of mascara to make them look longer. A friend of mine told me to cut them and they would grow back longer. Yikes! They did not grow back. Now my eyelashes are even shorter than before. I tried using olive oil and Vaseline. Nothing worked.

Fast forward 20 years. I am in the best shape of my life. I work out every day. I have everything I could possibly want. I get facials and massages regularly. Yet something was still missing. I was ready to get eyelash extensions put on when my aesthetician told me about this new product coming out that would GROW my own eyelashes. It was developed by a woman who had lost her eyelashes to an illness. Her eyelashes grew so long that she had to cut them.

I was skeptical but I bought it anyway. I few weeks later I noticed that some of my existing eye lashes were growing and some new ones were growing in bare spots. I told all of my friends about it. They were skeptical too. But after watching my progress for 1 year they were amazed. Now they can't live without this product. LiLash has changed our lives.

I know that growing long eye lashes is not the most important thing in life but it has boosted my confidence. If you are like me and enjoy being the best that you can be and having the best beauty products then this product is for you.

Beauty Secret #2: MSM Powder!

I have been adding MSM powder to my water everyday (one teaspoon for each liter) and I have literally shrunk 2 sizes. MSM reduces the inflammation in EVERY cell of your body. So not only do your joints feel better, your skin looks radiant and glowing.

MSM works to build collagen, helping to create smooth skin, thick lustrous hair, and strong nails. MSM makes the tissues more permeable so that they may move nutrients in and toxins out with greater ease. MSM has a remarkable effect at neutralizing foreign proteins (i.e. allergens, toxins, undigested food) making it anti-inflammatory. MSM works to enhance beauty and restore vitality to our skin and joints. MSM works particularly well in conjunction with vitamin-C rich foods. This MSM comes to you as a pure white crystalline powder.
