Most of us love sugar. Even health-nuts.
People with the strictest diets are still so often unwilling to give up their sugar. Agave nectar, raw honey, brown rice syrup, sugar cane juice, apple juice and sugar in the raw are just a few of the many examples of sugars being considered healthy. But they’re not. They’re all refined sugars.
In nature, sugar wasn’t so easy. We weren’t meant to have so much.
Candida, bacteria, and other parasites. Sugar even promotes viruses. And even if your healthy sweetener is fresh squeezed apple juice, that’s still a refined sugar.
Allergies are typically the first sign of Candida or another imbalance of the body. This is not limited to seasonal allergies—I’m also talking about pet allergies, dust allergies, food allergies, etc.
I’m not saying to never have refined sugars. Sometimes I do eat them. I call them “healthier” sugars. They certainly have their place. But if you find yourself having them every day you’re taxing your system.
Try this natural remedy for one week!
If you’re someone who takes good care of themselves and is wondering if it’s possible to get rid of your allergies, give this a try for a week—give up all refined foods. All refined sugars, all refined grains, all refined foods. Try it for a week.
Cut out all sugars. I recommend even cutting out fruit, carrot and beet juice. As your allergies subside (and they almost always do) slowly add in fruits back into your diet and see what happens. If all goes well, try some fresh juices and the occasional sweetener. Just keep listening to your body and make adjustments as needed.
Now, sit back, relax with some unrefined tea and listen to the full Green Divas Radio Show…
