Burn Fat While You Sleep!

December 12th, 2012


Imagine losing weight while you sleep!

Our bodies can burn fat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If your body isn’t burning fat like a furnace and you’re having trouble losing weight, it’s most likely because your liver isn’t functioning correctly. Without a healthy liver, nothing else you do for weight loss will make a dent.

While the other organs rest at night, repairing and rejuvenating for a new day, your liver is hard at work processing waste from your body, natural waste from cellular energy production, and unnatural waste from artificial additives in our food and chemicals in our water.

You really can burn fat while you sleep, but not if your poor, run-down liver is clogged up with junk. The first step in losing weight is to unclog your liver.

Your liver is home to industrial-strength workers called hepatocytes. Hepatocytes provide effective communication within the liver, cleansing the blood of waste by-products, processing proteins, fats and carbohydrates, synthesizing cholesterol and lipids, and much more.

Diet, stress and medications put up walls inside the liver, preventing the hepatocytes from communicating effectively!

If I was your liver, I’d cry “Uncle” and give up under this enormous work load!

With each of our cancer patients, the very first place we start is with detoxifying the liver to start cleansing the blood and boosting immune system response. Why not do the same thing for weight loss?

For centuries, Milk thistle has been revered as a “liver tonic”, and research studies now show this herb to be highly effective in repairing damage to the liver from toxic chemicals and medications.

Balancing blood sugar is the next step toward weight loss.
If your blood sugar is out of control, you have constant cravings for carbohydrates and sugar! Craving sweets means your messenger hormones are confused – what your body actually needs are proteins or fats, but instead we think it is for sweets.

“Dr. Adaptogenics will see you now”

October 3rd, 2012

Probably the most crucial moment in my strange long journey to beat cancer, was the moment I walked into the high mountain village of “Shimla” in northern India over 24 years ago.

The venerable old professor at the Hahhneman University in Bombay (now called “Mumbai”) had pressed a letter into my hand that would introduce me to a little-known healing center and place of Hindu religion that he felt would benefit me in my fight.

All he would say was, “we’ve done all we can for you, now you need go meet the Holy Basil.”

When you’re fighting cancer, if someone suggests dancing with dolphins, you do it, since as we all know life can turn on a dime. So off I trudged by rickety train and bumpy bus for eight days and nights to Shimla, where part of me still resides, high up in the Himalayas and as close to God as you can get I think, in a physical sense.

Maybe it was the altitude, but my head was spinning and struggling to cope with the amazing surroundings. The address on the notepaper got me to a pale blue temple up a side street with a yellow painting of a diety on the outside.

This diety I learned was Lord Vishnu, the Preserver or Sustainer of life in Hindu religion, the Supreme Lord. For thousands of years, he has been revered and prayed to as the source of all Peace and Truth. No wonder I was sent there!

I met the Holy Basil my first day at the temple, but I didn’t know it.

In the days, weeks and then months that I lived there, every split second helped me heal and in every possible way; mentally, spiritually and also physically. I consumed mysterious herbs, teas and tinctures that are an integral part of Lord Vishnu’s philosophy. It was like I entered a very special “Healing Zone” where other-worldly powers took over and enveloped my every second.

What the disciples taught me so well was the power of “adaptogenics” in coping with the maelstrom of life around us. And how to arrive at a state of calm in the midst of a storm, whether mentally, spiritually or physically.

This was done through what we ate, what we thought and what we prayed. It was done through meditation, to arrive at place and a state of calm and reflection that washed away the stress and the noise and clamor of daily life.

Everyday at the temple we consumed countless cups and bowls of special teas and soups and curries that contained the supreme herbs in all of Ayurvedic medicine, practiced in India and Asia since time immemorial.

And then it hit me. I kept waiting and wondering when I was going to meet this amazing doctor, the Holy Basil, that would help me in the final step of my healing and recovery.

It turns out the old professor wanted me to meet a plant!
