Steps Towards Amazing Health

We all hear about diets-Miami Beach, Cookie, Atkins, Low Sugar. But diets are diets and no matter how many of them we attempt, the bottom line is that good health comes from good eating habits. Consistent, healthy, organic habits. These habits will stay with you for a lifetime, whereas diets are fads. The come and go and your weight will fluctuate. Here are some guidelines for a healthy lifestyle.
1.You are what you drink. Water, water, water. Our bodies are made up of 70% water. Our blood is made up of 90% water. Our bodies cannot survive without water. It is essential for cellular health,hydrating our skin, preventing dehydration & preventing a whole host of symptoms that can occur if we dont drink enough.
2.pH Balance.We can't say it enough. "Alkaline bodies are healthy bodies." The more alkaline a person is, the less inflammation,the less disease, & the more energy & productive our bodies will fuction. Eating lemons,limes, & grapefruits are low is sugar & have an alkalizing effect when metabolized in the body. Look it up for yourself.
3.Have a positive attitude. Attitude is everything! Have you ever heard of the self-fulfilling prophecy? What we believe will happen may happen. In order for the body to stay in a healthy state of balance, including a healthy weight, you must find the mental, emotional,& spiritual calm, as well as physical stability.  Bottom line: uncontrolled negative thoughts and emotions will often trigger unhealthy eating in a variety of forms, aimed at comforting and consoling oneself.
4. Eat good fats & foods. Avocados are a great source of monounsaturated fats as well as nuts. They are nutrient-dense, have more potassium than bananas, and have one of the richest sources of lutein (protects again cancer & eye disease). Coconuts are a wonderful source of good saturated fats. The good fats in whole natural coconuts may help lower cholesterol & prevent arteriosclerosis. Fresh fish is rich in omega-3s and while you aren't supposed to eat it everyday, it's important to eat. Salmon,trout,tuna,striped bass & red snapper are the best to eat. Green vegetables provide the body with vitamins,minerals,fiber & micronutrients. Grains like Quinoa & raw buckwheat are high in protein & are a great alternative to a completx starch.
5. Supplements. The right type can be an important part of any weight loss program. Many foods are processed in ways that deplete them of more of their nutritional value. When cooked, they lose more nutrients. The only way to be sure you are getting all the vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients you need is with supplements. Finding the right type of supplements are a different story. Drinking your greens is almost better than eating them. Quantum Premier Greens Mix is a concentrated green powder that  can be added to any drink or smoothie. Probioticss are also a very important part of any lifestyle, as are digestive enzymes.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is easy to achieve with the proper tools. These are only an example, but Talya Meldy and Clear Way Health can help you achieve a healthy lifestyle through nutritional counseling, supplemental muscle testing, and colonics.  Please contact Clear Way Health at 310-391-2017 or at info@clearwayhealth.com for more information

Fiber-What’s the Difference Between Insoluble and Soluble Fiber?

We have all heard about the benefits of fiber; it helps promote health as well as helps prevent certain types of diseases and cancers. Constipation, hemorrhoids, colon and breast cancers, LDL cholesterol, and regulating blood sugars can all be prevented by eating enough of the right types of fiber. But what’s the difference between Insoluble and Soluble fiber?

Insoluble fiber doesn’t absorb or dissolve in water. It passes through our digestive system in almost it original form. Insoluble fiber is great for intestinal health. Benefits are promoting regular bowl movements and preventing constipation; removing toxic waste through the colon in less time; and helping to prevent colon cancer by keeping an optimal pH in the intestines to prevent microbes from producing cancerous substances. It also moves bulk through the intestines and controls and balances the pH in the intestines. Food sources of insoluble fiber are: vegetables (green beans and dark green leafy vegetables), fruit skins and root vegetable skins, whole wheat products, wheat bran, and seeds and nuts.

Soluble fiber forms a gel-like substance and swells when mixed with water. Its benefits include lowering total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, which then can reduce heart disease and regulating blood sugar for people with diabetes. Examples of soluble fiber are: oat/oat bran, nuts, barley, flax seed, psyllium husk, and various fruits and vegetables.

Chemicals That Are Harmful To Your Health

This article contains a brief list of chemicals, which you need to watch for when shopping for consumer products. Below are 8 chemicals that should not be present in the products that you use on a daily basis.

1. Propylene Glycol-It's cheap,synthetic,and a skin irritant. This chemical is a base cream used in creams & lotions to make the skin look and feel smooth.The opposite is true. Propylene Glycol may have a reversing effect, causing the skin to be saggy and lose valuable protein.
2. Sodium LaurlSulfate (SLS)-Normally found in shampoos,soaps, and facial cleasers, this chemical has been used for engine degreasers & garage floor cleaners.  It has a degenerative effect on cell membranes and may damage the skin or your hair follicles. SLS may cause cataracts and has been known to have the capability of changing basic coding in your genetic materials contained in your cells and organs.
3.Mineral Oil-Appears to be harmless, right? This cheap and petroleum-based oil may clog your skin's pores and enlarge them at the same time. Mineral Oil prevents the skin cells from exchanging nutrietnts and waste products.
4.Fragrance-It's usually synthetic & made with over 200 synthetic chemicals. These chemicals can accumulate in your organs & could possibly cause headaches, lung problems, skin irritations and rashes. Fragrances are cheap toxins and often will be manufactured to imitate herbal scents.
5.Parabens (Propyl, Methyl, Butyl, or Ethyl)-These are preservatives and known to be toxic.  Parabens can cause allergies & skin reactions.
6.Imidazolidinyl & DiazolidinylUrea-These are the 2nd most common preserviative to Parabens.  Imidazolidinyl & DiazolidinylUreas cause contact dermatitis and release formaldehyde.
7.Synthetic Colors-Used in skin creams or shampoos to make it pretty & colorful.  AVOID synthetic colors AT ALL COSTS.  These chemicals can cause allergies, skin & nerve problems.  They are listed as FD&C or D&C, followed by a number and color.
8.Triethanolamine (TEA)-This is often used to adjust the pH balance. These chemicals can cause allergic reactions including eye problems, dryness in the hair and skin, and may possibly be toxic if absorbed into the body over long period of time.

Always read labels to ensure that you are getting the most pure ingredients in your products.  Organic is always best.

Call or email www.clearwayhealth.com to learn more about avoiding these dangerous chemicals. Talya Meldy can be reached at 310-391-2017 or email her at info@clearwayhealth.com.

Coffee Enemas

Coffee enemas are one of the best ways to cleanse the body quickly and efficiently. The coffee enema is used as a follow up procedure after a Salt Flush. A key benefit of a coffee enema is the that the Salt Flush first clears the Colon of waste which has built up. This cleaning allows all of the beneficial minerals from the fresh, organic coffee to be absorbed through the intestinal walls to give your body maximum cleansing of the Liver, Gallbladder, and other essential organs. We recommend using a Quantum Premier Coffee Enema. After your initial elimination, prepare the coffee. The prep time is about 20 minutes. You will need to hold the coffee inside for about 10-15 minutes.
Additionally, taking a complete Probiotic (Quantum Probiotic Complex) will give you a healthy, digestive environment.
To receive more information about Coffee Enemas or Colon Cleansing, please contact Talya Meldy at 310-391-2017 or visit our website at www.clearwayhealth.com.

Pink Salt Flush

The benefits of flushing the system of impurities and toxins by using colon hydrotherapy are unsurpassed, however, you may like to try using Sun-Dried Pink Sea Salt. It is amazing for your overall health. Using Epson Salt for a flush can be equivalent to a colonoscopy prep. We recommend Pink Salt for intestinal cleansing for the following reasons:
Clear Way Pink Salt uses raw, unheated, highly ionized natural sea salt in place of regular salt. There is no added Aluminum. A Salt Flush cleanses your colon, stomach, and small intestines at the same time. We recommend performing this flush first thing in the morning, when you have access to a restroom. The Salt Flush is prepared by mixing 1 teaspoon of Premier Pink Salt into 16 ounces of warm purified water (this mixture will vary based on your weight, so be sure to ask a Practitioner). After drinking the salt water, on an empty stomach, lie on your right side for 30 minutes. This will insure the salt water moves out of the stomach and travels directly into your intestinal tract. Once the salt water is in the small intestines, the muscle contractions will carry the liquid the rest of the way. In approximately one hour,. you should be able to massage the left side of the lower abdomen and hear gurgling. This means that the liquids which have flowed into the large intestine are almost ready to be released.
A Salt Flush will provide most of you a fast and full bowel elimination within 30-60 minutes. It is possible a second elimination may occur in two plus hours after the initial flush. We recommend continuing the Salt Flush daily for approximately 2 weeks, then taper off. We urge you to contact Talya Meldy at 310-391-2017 or visit our website at www.clearwayhealth.com

Unhhealthy Food Supplements You Should Avoid, Part 2

This is Part 2 of unhealthy ingredients that are found in packaged/process foods as well as in restaurants.

MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) is an excitotoxin, according to Dr. Blaylock. It is used in countless foods on the supermarket shelves, has wide-spread use in restaurants, schools, and hospital cafeterias, and it has even found in baby foods and vaccinations. MSG is highly adaptive and might even be in fast foods.

Dr. Blaylock states that MSG can cause: cardiac problems, circulatory disorders, gastrointestinal problems, muscular disorders, neurological problems, visual disorders, respiratory problems, urological problems, and skin disorders.

MSG use is so pervasive, that it is finding its way onto fresh produce and nuts via products called AuxiGro, which is produced by Emeral Bio-Agriculture. AuxiGro is classified as a disinfectant, fertilizer, and a fungicide. The FDA requires food processors to list the ingredient monosodium glutamate on labels but does not require the listing of free glutamic acids found in MGS. There are over 40 MSG by-products that contain free glutamic acids but these acids are not so obvious on food labels.

These are your MSG "aliases:" Natural flavors, autolyzed yeast, glutamate, calcium caseinate, glutamic acid, gelatin, hyrolyzed protein, textured, protein, yeast nutrient, yeast extract, sodium caseinate, yeast food.

These ingredients often contain or create MSG during the manufacturing process and needs to be avoided when possible: flavors, flavorings, natural chicken flavoring, anything enzyme modified, soy sauce broth, carageenan, corn starch, soy protein isolate, malt extract, MaltoDextrin.

MSG is found in shampoos, hair conditioners, cosmetics, candy, chewing gum, binders and fillers for medications, both prescriptive and non, feeding materials and it can be found in some intravenous fluids. Does the new health care bill subsidize MSG related illnesses? I don't know, but we hope you get the message.

It is possible to wash away or detoxify these harmful ingredients with colon hydrotherapy and proper eating habits. The best thing to do, of course, is not use MSG (knowingly) at all.

Unhhealthy Food Supplements You Should Avoid, Part 1

When eating processed foods, that are packed in a variety of ways, learning to analyze and read food labels is extremely important for your health. The average person must become a food detective. You are on a special mission to search for hazardous ingredients that are found to be harmful towards your goal of living a long and fruitful life. Many processed foods contain inhibitors for our health.

In Part 1 of this list, I have put together a limited list of problematic ingredients that you should watch for when eating at your favorite restaurant or shopping at the local supermarket. (Part 2 will be a separate blog).

Aspartame (read the book "Skinny Bitch")
Aspartame is a type of artificial sweetener that is marketed under names like NutraSweet or Equal. This substance needs to be avoided. Look at the following evidence:
1. Dr. Russell Blaylock, M.D., strongly believes Aspartame is an excitotoxin.
2. Dr. H.J. Roberts who is listed in "The Best Doctors in the U.S., states that Aspartame is the last component in wood alcohol which is considered a harmful poison.
3. The Aspartame Consumer Safety Network states, "when ingested methanol breaks down into formaldehyde, which is a known carcinogen."
4. Did you know Aspartame is 200 times sweeter than sugar? This ingredient has fewer calories, which is why it is gobbled up by weight conscious people. Unfortunately, research shows that this supplement causes weight gain and not weight loss.
5. The Technology Review magazine published an article stating Aspartame stimulates the appetite. Researchers believe that any kind of sweet taste signals the body cells to store carbohydrates and fats, which tend to cause the body to crave more food and gain weight.
6. The list of symptoms caused by Aspartame is vast, consisting of pain including migraine headaches, joint pain, eye problems, memory loss, depression, hyperactivity, and a variety of other symptoms.

Splenda (it's not splendid)
Splenda is a Johnson & Johnson brand for Sucralose.
1. The J&J Marketing Campaign says it is made from sugar and tastes like sugar-however it is a chemically created product that uses substances such as chlorine and phosgene, which has been categorized as a poisonous gas.
2. The Center of Disease Control, in Atlanta, Georgia, has described one of the ingredients in Splenda as a major chemical used to manufacture plastics and deadly pesticides.
3. Splenda is 600 times sweeter than sugar.
4. Research in animals with Splenda provides us with numerous concerns including: shrunken thymus glands (diminished immunity), enlarged liver and/or kidneys, slow growth rate, increase in spontaneous abortions, shrunken ovaries, and calcified kidneys.

It is possible to wash away or detoxify these harmful ingredients with colon hydrotherapy and proper eating habits. The best thing to do, of course, is not use these products at all, or ask when eating out if the restaurant uses these "flavorings." We recommend pink "sun-dried" sea salt and courmet Italian Vinegar as well as pure Morrocan Olive Oil for flavor.

The Importance Of Minerals

Did you know we can trace every sickness, every disease and every aliment to a mineral deficiency? Did you know that physical, mental, and moral fitness depends largely upon an ample supply and a proper proportion of minerals in our foods? 99% of Americans are deficient in these minerals. When essential minerals are depleted or missing altogether. Our bodies can't optimally process the food we eat. This leaves us malnourished and susceptible to diseases. When minerals are not present, vitamins can't do the job they are supposed to perform.

Restoring and re-establishing our bodies mineral balance is one of the first steps we can take towards restoring wellness and excellent health. Original Quinton is a wonderful resource to assist in that balancing process. It can be taken orally under the tongue, or rectally during a colon hydrotherapy session.

Answers About Candida

Candida is a common type of yeast infection resulting from the consumption of high levels of yeast products in the processed foods we eat.

Yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth created by high levels of yeast components in your diet. Yeast, when analyzed from this prospective, is a basic type of fungus which occurs in many areas of your body. Candidiasis is the most normal type of yeast infection. In women, vaginal yeast infections are a common occurrence; Candida is the second major reason for vaginal burning, itching, and discharge. Candida causing yeasts are found in the vaginas of 50% of healthy women. Candida may overproduce if the environment in your vagina abruptly changes. Antibiotic and steroid use is the most common cause of yeast overproduction.

Vaginal yeast infections occur for a variety of reasons, but the leading cuase is the overuse of broad spectrum antibiotics. Prescription antibiotics kill the bad bacteria you are trying to eliminate, but at the same time they wipe out all your healthy bacteria, which you need for homeostasis. Yeast is not vulnerable to antibiotics and when the friendly bacteria may be destroyed, the internal intestinal envrionment is wide open for Candida to grow unchecked in your vagina.

A poor diet is a very important reason we experience a high frequency of yeast infections. Most people are eating foods containing high levels of sugar, refined carbohydrates, and junk foods containing little nutritional value. Candida's primary source of food is sugar and processed waste foods. Experts in the field say that the more sugar you consume, ther greater the elements you are providing for Candida infections to grow.

Clear Way Health will recommend some simple lifestyle changes, which will help you to reduce and possibly eliminate yeast from your system. First, if you must take an antibiotic, make sure you also take a Probiotic. The Probiotic balance out the intestinal flora and can restore the healthy bacteria that the antibiotic has destroyed.

Second, it is important you eliminate flour, sugar, and yeast from your diet when possible. Candida grows from the consumption of these foods. This will help balance out the flora in your body. Easting more alkaline foods, such as greens and other calcium rich vegetables can restore the body back to its intended balance, which will greatly reduce Candida infections.

Talya Meldy has some important information, which is is waiting to share with you about the various nutritional supplements she has found that will help you to eliminate yeast from your diet. Call Talya today for this vital information.

Colonics vs. Colonoscopy Prep-What's The Difference

I wanted to touch upon a common misconception, one that continues to come up in conversation and in the media. During my segment on Oprah's Ask The All-Stars, some viewers may have been confused between a colonic and colonoscopy prep and I would like to clear it up.

The main difference is that a colonic is a way of life. It is a procedure that is performed to assist individuals with easier bowel elimination and hydration. For some, colonics is a way to assist while cleansing and dieting (clearing out toxins naturally rather than using laxatives). Colonics can be performed on a daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly basis. Colonics are also being performed in several hospital facilities to assist in preparing for a Colonoscopy (read further for more information). Dr. Hiromi Shinya, MD, is a well-renowned Japanese doctor known for pioneering the modern-day colonoscopy and inventing the procedure to eliminate polyps non-invasively. He is a proponent of enemas and bowel cleansing. In his book, "The Enzyme Factor," he discusses the relationship between enzymes and health. In Dr. Alejandro Junger's book, "Clean," Dr. Junger discusses how to naturally clean and detoxify the body. Through his process, he also supports and recommends colonics. Both these doctors are well-respected and pioneers in their fields. Both doctors (who are western trained) support and recommend putting water up your fanny!!!!

A colonoscopy is a diagnostic procedure that is usually done after the age of 50 to screen for cancer and possible polyps. In order to prepare for the colonoscopy, a person needs to prepare doing "a prep." A liquid diet needs to be consumed 1-3 days prior. The night before the procedure, one or more Bowel Prep Solutions that usually contain sodium phosphate, or sodium sulphate and other unpleasant laxatives are taken to fully clean out the colon for the camera to enter the bowels. This is a process that requires you to be close to home and can be uncomfortable for some people.

Danbury Hospital (Conn.) using Colon Hydrotherapy as a bowel prep. Dr. Joseph Fiorito, Director of Gastroenterology supports the process as a preparation for a colonoscopy. The conclusion of the study was that, "the quality of colon cleansing, overall tolerance, comfort, and convenience were significantly better for HYDRO." www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeWjxHspRKS You can also view this video on my website at www.clearwayhealth.com. Overall, bowel viewing was better on all sides of the colon using colon hydrotherapy, as opposed to the polyethylene glycol-electrolyte lavage (PER-ES and the Aqueous Sodium Phosphate).

As always, if there are any underlying medical issues, consult your doctor. If you any any questions about colonics or scheduling a colonic to assist in the prep for a colonoscopy, please give Talya Meldy a call at Clear Way Health 310-391-2017.

Why Is Water Important?

Water has so many amazing properties. Aside from the fact that we can't live without water, why else is this element so important to us as human beings? Water helps us with weight loss. It can increase our metabolism as well as make us feel full so we don't eat as much during a meal. Water can increase your energy. So many of the benefits we receive from water has to do with staying hydrated. If sufficiently hydrated, you are less likely to feel run-down or depleted, your heart will not have to work as hard to pump your blood to the rest of your body, you can prevent muscle cramping, and you have the ability to exercise longer and harder.

Water also hydrates skin cells, making your skin look and feel younger. Water also helps dissolve waste particles. The more hydrated your colon, the more easily you are able to pass waste. Water dilutes sale and minerals in your urine and can help prevent kidney stones.

Remember the rule of thumb-drink eight 8oz glasses of water a day (or half your body weight). If you exercise, drink more. the more hydrated your body, the more effectively your body can function.

Healthy Colon, No Disease?

A healthy colon and bowers may prevent many diseases according to Hiromi Shinya, M.D., Japan's most famous doctor. He invented the ability to clip polyps during a Colonoscopy. IBS, ulcers, bloating, chronic diarrhea, and constipation are symptoms of unhealthy activities taking place in your colon or bowels. 70% of you immune cells are in your intestines. The good flora inside your intestines triggers the immune cells to defend your body from toxins, parasites, and poisons. The longer waste products are allowed to build up in the colon without release, the more your colon becomes a toxic breeding ground for unhealthy bacteria. Although you may have daily bowel movements, maybe 50% or more of the population still has fecal buildup in their colons.

How can we protect ourselves from colon related diseases and promote consistent health for our bodies? Feeling good starts with your health on the inside, not the outside. Keeping your colon clear and clean, allows the good flora to remain, which is what is needed for healthy digestion. Probiotics and colonics are two excellent ways to promote good flora and to get rid of unwanted toxins in the colon. We also have noticed that digestive enzymes aid witih gas and bloating.

When taking a Probiotic, it's best to take a multi-strain mixture. Multi-strain mixtures contain a wide variety of healthy cultures, each with its own special job to do in order to solve digestive problems. You'll feel better, have more energy, and experience the benefits of a strong immune system. People need approximately 85% good bacteria and 15% bad in order to keep digestion healthy. However, the majority of American have this ratio reversed. Probiotics help you to restore that critical balance. They support normal digestion and absorption of your nturients, increase healthy immune function, maintain normal levels of yeast, create a healthy intestinal lining, promote regularity of your bowel function, and support healthy and clear skin.

Colonics rid the body of excess fecal build-up and toxins. As stated, even if you go to the bathroom on a regular basis, there can still be excess waste stored in your body. Colonics help you rid the body of that harmful build-up, which the body is able to release on its own. After a good colon "bath," it's the perfect time to take your Probiotics.

If you would like to receive more information about colon health as it relates to Probiotics and colonics, please contact Talya Meldy at 310-391-2017 or email her at info@clearwayhealth.com.
