Giveaway!! Detox Time!!

Posted: April 15, 2011 in Uncategorized

More and more of us are on jumping on board and taking charge of our health and well being.  New organic items seem to be popping up on shelves daily as more people are steering away from processed foods, and staying away from toxic chemicals.  More and more people are doing their best to ditch the boxes and cans as they eat fresh nutrient rich foods to nourish their bodies.

What if you are 40, 50, 60 years old and have just recently started taking charge?  What about the years that have passed and the damage done to our bodies years ago? I know I myself was not this health conscious years ago.  Did I cause enough damage then that cannot be reversed?

Along with the increase in eating healthy is also an increase in trying to fix past damage done to the body by actually detoxifying one’s body.  Perhaps the most astounding types of ‘detox’ I have ever come across is that of the Gerson therapy, which individuals with chronic degenerative diseases, like cancer, embark upon.  The detox involves daily fresh organic juices (13 of them to be taken every hour) in addition to a number of coffee enemas and supplements.  All of this is done to activate the body’s ability to heal itself from disease.  Yes, you read correctly, your body can heal itself from disease.

So does it work?

I have been fortunate enough to be in contact with a brilliant woman who was healed through the Gerson therapy.  Years ago, author Faye Hueston became very ill and sought medical help for treatment of her illness.  After preforming a number of tests her doctors determined her illness was all in her head and suggested she see a psychiatrist.  She met various people and tried various types of therapy but was unable to get better, or even determine a cause of her illness.  She then learned of the Gerson therapy through her friend, a friend who was cured of malignant melanoma after her oncologist had given up on her.  Faye then embarked upon the Gerson therapy and discovered her illness was not mysterious or in her head, but instead Faye’s illness was a result of exposure to chemicals, from pharmaceuticals to pesticides to those found in our food, air and water.  Although Faye had a sensitivity to these chemicals, the exposure to these chemicals that made her ill are the same chemicals we are all exposed to on a daily basis.  This is serious stuff.  During her illness and struggle to heal herself, Faye kept a diary which she later published into her book Silent Enemy.   I purchased her wonderfully written book on Amazon.  It is written as a novel, so it is easy to follow and keeps you engaged in her struggle as you find yourself wanting to read more.  Perfect for a book club or if you are looking for a novel that will change the way you look at your life and daily exposure to the most common of everyday chemicals.  Faye sent me 3 copies of her book to do as a giveaway for my fans.  She particularly wanted to give her book to someone in need who could not afford it, so I will split up the giveaway.   I will set aside 2 books for anyone who cannot afford the book, if you fall into that category then please me at  For the rest of you looking for another wonderful chance at an awesome giveaway you can enter to win the book by doing the following:
