21 Day Fast / Daniel Fast

Now is the time for you to pull your products together in preparation for your New Years 21 Day Cleanse or the Daniel Fast. The following Bundles are excellent for both of these programs: C.O.W.S., Basic, Balance or the Complete Program, available at, have all the products for your cleansing Fast neatly packaged in a Bundle. This is "shopping made easy"! You can still add more products to your program. For example: You might want to add "Mega Vita-Mins" (excellent product), "Alka-Blast" (really works), "Liquid Chlorophyll" (awesome) or "SuperSoy Powder" (great) to your regimen. The 21 Day Cleanse can be extended to 26 days, but no longer. Fasting periodically or seasonally is more than beneficial than never coming off the Fast.

For those of you who are not familiar with cleansing, I will brief you. My understanding of a cleanse is to detox your body of toxin overload and impurities, while prayer strengthens your spiritual awareness of Gods guidance in your life. The 21 Day Cleanse is regarded as a time of prayer, meditation and fasting. Many don't consume solid foods during this Fast.  You consume liquids -primarily beverages without sugar or salt. You can alter this program to better suit you. I have already altered it by incorporating the InnerLight supplements that maximize your efforts during the fast. This works beautifully for me and many others. However, you must go back on solid food no later than 26 days, maximum. Remember, you don't want to overdo a great thing! So move to get your supplies now by selecting the "InnerLight" tab from the menu at I will chat with you later.

The pH level (the acid-alkaline measurement) of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are not well tolerated by the body. Indeed, the entire metabolic process depends on a balanced internal alkaline environment. A chronically over-acidic pH corrodes body tissue, slowly eating into the 60,000 miles of veins, arteries, and capillaries like acid eating into marble. If left unchecked, it will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain. In summary, over-acidification interferes with life itself leading to all sickness and disease!

9/11 Memorial

Today we remember those taken from us on 9/11. Although it has been ten years, for many it feels as though it was just yesterday.

The beauty, if you don't mind, of 9/11 is the outpouring of love to those who lost someone that day, the unity shown amongst US citizens everywhere, and compassion that poured in from countries around the world immediately following the horror. To me the United States felt like one big neighborhood of family members, not spanning a great distance. I believe that was also in part to the strong expression of unity that arose from Manhattans Ground Zero, the Pentagon, and Shanksville that day. A monument of lights beamed where the Twin Towers stood for evenings to follow, giving everyone time to reflect and consider how to move forward. The process of healing has been long and rough for so many. My respect, love and admiration goes out to all the survivors, responders, military and others of 9/11. I look forward to visiting the monument to pay my respects in person when I come home to New York. God bless you all, and God bless America.

Fat Is An Acid Problem

Originally posted 8/25/05

Do you know any one who is over weight? Do you want to lose a few pounds or inches?

Obesity is not a fat problem - it's an acid problem. Fats bind acids and move them away from our vital organs. These fats act as a neutralizing buffer of acid when the inner terrain of our body is unhealthy. Therefore, obesity is a protective mechanism of the body. The solution is not counting calories, fats, carbs or points -The solution is to eat and drink more alkaline foods and liquids like our SuperGreens with Prime pH.

Dr. Young has shown that fat is actually an over-acidification problem. What does that mean? The body creates fat cells to carry acids away from your vital organs, so these acids literally don't choke your organs to death. Fat is saving your life! Fat is actually a response from the body to an alarming over-acidic condition. The solution? Alkalize with SuperGreens and Prime pH.

Healthy bodies are not overweight or underweight. A healthy body naturally maintains its own ideal weight. You can begin to restore health, balance, and harmony to your body with InnerLight. As alkalizing and oxygenation begins to take place, the body naturally begins to seek its own ideal weight. Prime pH is to help you become more alkaline with every ounce of water that you drink.

Prime pH - Helps your blood absorb the oxygen from water more easily and contributes to the neutralizing effects of SuperGreens. Prime pH is a unique, proprietary form of CLO2 (sodium chlorite) which is a powerful oxygen catalyst helps cells to perform optimally.

Testimony: "I know that this is not a weight loss program, but I lost 30 lbs the first month and my daughter lost 50. I also have lots of friends that are losing weight with SuperGreens that have been dieting for years with no success. When your body gets into balance with SuperGreens and Prime PH the fat cells simply disappear. Dr. Young is right!!"  -Ceilia Bateman

Developing Healthy Habits

All chatter and party lines aside, I hope all of you will be encouraged by some of the progress being made throughout the country when it comes to addressing Childhood Obesity in America. I also pray you will be concerned about the presence of this issue in our society.

The issue of obesity is actually not limited to our children but sadly enough, includes them. Posted below is a good discussion regarding this very serious epidemic. Maybe you are in a position to bring about positive changes in your school. Well, I want to motivate you and others to get educated about this topic. Get involved however you can to secure the future of our youth. Eliminating food deserts is another focus of the Let's Move campaign. 23 million people plus 6.5 million children are currently living in these food deserts located in rural and urban areas. I believe We the People can do something about this, if nothing other than educating ourselves that they exist.

Watch the videos to learn more.

Although progress is made, we are really just getting started with moving forward to change dietary habits. Everything in moderation, right? I have to remind myself of that too. Watch the video below for more information and ideas.

In my store, I provide many products for you to incorporate into your daily routine and that of your family. They are designed to infuse your body with nutrients, greens, grasses, herbs, vitamins, minerals and more. They support your body and diminish deficiencies that can compromise your new commitment. Now you can strengthen your foundation, purge your body of toxic acids and detoxify remaining impurities. If you stick to it, you will see amazing results in one month. Try it! I double dog dare you. Select "Go shopping" below to get started!

Dr. Oz: The National Childhood Obesity Crisis

As a father and a physician, I am thrilled to see the Obama administration addressing one of the most pressing issues for the next generation – the fight against childhood obesity. Michelle Obama’s initiative has made big headlines, bringing light to this urgent national crisis.

The statistics are shocking. Childhood obesity has nearly tripled in prevalence in the last 30 years. The extensive list of complications facing children who suffer from obesity includes diabetes, abnormal cholesterol, high blood pressure, asthma and sleep disorders. Even more frightening is the fact that these conditions are likely to follow children into their adult lives. The fat cells that children deposit at young ages stay with them as they grow. This means that extraneous fat cells will be impossible to remove and will burden these children for the rest of their lives.

On my show we welcome a young girl who is heading down that dangerous road. Lillie is 4 years old and weighs 85 lbs. We sit down with her parents, Heather and Mike, and discuss the emotional issues that attribute to Lillie’s obesity. We lay out an action plan that focuses on making wellness a family affair. The example that Heather and Mike set as parents is essential to Lillie developing healthy eating habits.

Like so many, Heather, Mike and Lillie were struggling with these issues privately. However, there are some who battle weight and obesity under public scrutiny. We welcome pop singer and TV personality, Carnie Wilson. Carnie’s struggle with food began when she was only 4 years old. At such a young age, she was already dealing with sugar cravings. As her children grow, Carnie senses the urgency to take back her health.

The fight to end childhood obesity begins with adults. If you feel like your child may be obese talk to a pediatrician. They can map out an individualized weight assessment and if necessary, work with you to create a personal treatment plan. A healthy family is a blessing that comes with responsibility, as a nation, we need to step up.

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution

Chef Jamie Oliver is as determined as many to see Childhood Obesity come to a screeching end. There is nothing flattering about our Obesity statistics in America. Frankly, at the end of the day, we have no one to hold accountable, but ourselves for the state of our eating habits and lack of exercise.

We, as citizens of United States, have the ability to transform the landscape of nutrition in our schools and universities. However, the practice of nutrition and portion must start at home. A "movement" is the only way to bring about such a change. Jamie Oliver, another supporter of First Lady Michelle Obama's initiative, has been on such a crusade to win back the health of our children (our future):

We're losing the war against obesity in the US. It's sad, but true. Our kids are growing up overweight and malnourished from a diet of processed foods, and today's children will be the first generation ever to live shorter lives than their parents. It's time for change. It's time for a Food Revolution.
"Since I've been working in America, I've been overwhelmed by the number of people who have come out to support the Food Revolution. More than 630,000 people have signed the petition, over 300,000 of you subscribe to our newsletter and thousands of you have written to me. The only message I keep hearing is that you believe your kids need better food, and that you want help to keep cooking skills alive. That's why this Food Revolution matters."
Jamie Oliver
The problem stems from the loss of cooking skills at home and the availability of processed foods at every turn, from the school cafeteria to church function halls, factories and offices. This Food Revolution is about saving lives by inspiring everyone: moms, dads, kids, teens and cafeteria workers to get back to basics and start cooking good food from scratch.
-Jamie Oliver

So, if you have not guessed by now, I am in full agreement with First Lady Michelle Obama and Jamie Oliver about our condition, and on board with a much needed Food Revolution for America. DYGandM aka Drink Your Greens and Mineral!
