At Home Spa -Quality Experience with Herbal Body Wrap

" Cleansing Herbs to Detoxify and Tone your Body and Skin"

I tried herbal body wrap about three months ago and I was was glad that I did! After soaking in a Herbal Bath I was sooooo relaxed and it was definately an invigorating experience. I now have an Herbal Bath evening once a month to meditate, relax and enjoy the aroma of the herbal bath. Most of all, to cleanse, detoxify and tone my body and skin.

Why Detoxify?

Your skin is the body's largest organ and it is extremely absorbent. Everyday we ingest, inhale and indulge toxins such as (air pollution, processed foods, medication, toxic skin lotions, etc.) According to Life Force International, "The body's natural response is to protect the internal organs by trapping the toxins and storing them close to the surface of the skin, cushioned in water and fat cells, to be released through the pores. As a result, the toxins and extra water in our fat cells increase the appearance of dimpling, inches and poor skin tone."

Why Herbal Body Wrap?

Herbal Body wrap contains 27 minerals and herbs including Aloe Vera, which is known for its skin beautifying properties. In fact, Aloe Vera is scientifically proven to benefit skin.  Moreover, Herbal Body wrap eliminates surface impurities, resulting in toning of the skin. Herbal body wrap has been used for decades by many people all over the world.

Try it as a Wrap
Soak soft warm towels in Herbal Body wrap soothing aromic mineral solution and apply directly to the skin. Trap the heat by covering with plastic wrap and warm blankets, then relax and allow the minerals and herbal botanicals to work. ** This step is know to promotes weightloss

Try it As an Indulgent Bath
Try Body wrap as an  Bath! This step is easier and it imparts tremendous benefits to the skin and it is soooo soothing!

Natural Sweeteners are Healthier For our Bodies

"The average American consumes 158 pounds of sugar a year- 50 teaspoons a day! ~ Dr. Don Colbert/ "I Can Do this Diet."

Consuming too much sugar will increase your chances of developing heart disease, Type II Diabetes, plaque formation in our arteries, weight gain and many other health problems that are attributed to consuming too much sugar.

Foods that are high in sugar include: candy, cupcakes, pies doughnuts and sodas. In fact, one 12-ounce sodas contains 8 to 10- teaspoons of sugar.

Avoid the use of unnatural sweeteners! Dr. Colbert does not recommend the use of sweeteners that contain aspartame or sucralose. Natural sweeteners are approximately 600 times sweeter than sugar!

Three Natural Sweeteners

1. Stevia- is an herbal sweetener that can be used in coffee or tea. It is 200 times sweeter than sugar and has 0 calories!

2. Xylitol- is a sugar alcohol and is very low in glycemic index value (the glycemic gives a indication of the rate at which different carbs and foods break down to release sugar into the bloodstream) kills bacteria and prevents dental cavities.

3. Chicory- Chicory root is a probiotic that helps improve the GI functions; calcium, reduce blood pressure, prevents heart attacks and dental problems.

Now that you know natural sweeteners are much safer and healthier for our bodies. Give Natural Sweeteners a Try! You will find natural sweeteners at your local whole foods or Trader Joes store.
