millie says the feet are not an emunctory

though it may be more helpful than what your good-ol-missing-half-the-pie scientific doc tells you from time to time, you would never hold a psychic responsible for mis-predicting the future as it’s all in fun. i’m as ‘carney’ as the other gal and dont like to disappoint detox hopefuls but the feet are not an emunctory. some of us might pay to watch the fun-house as black as petrol crud escapes from the tootsies when immersed in a jumble of electrodes and wires. although the metamorphosis of clear water to a bath of yellow, green and white foam and filth has been reported by its user to clear foggy head, balance a urine pH and unbind cells on a live blood cell microscopy screen in an abracadabra moment, the science just dont mak-a sens-a to-a me-a no matter how ye’coddle it…this ‘technology’ seems bogus from an any health standpoint i know of and I’ll eat my words with cotton candy if i’m wrong.

to recap… though the skin does flush toxins, poo still comes out the bum not the feet. step right up and see the show.

millie says switch from [coffee] beans to roots

switch from beans to roots, if only periodically. so march came in like a lamb, does it go out like a lion or out like a lamb all the same? either way it’s time to start thinking about a spring cleanse. for first time detoxifiers, symptoms can be harsh enough as it is without having to suffer through a caffeine withdrawal headache to boot. the more toxic you are the more initial detox symptoms may present with a headache, fatigue, bowel changes, skin eruptions, moodiness, the desire to stay in bed. advice is to c-c-c-come off the caffeine 3 days prior to the cleanse, used during the cleanse or just all year ’round. made from a variety of roasted roots and toasted grains such as chicory, beet, dandelion, rye, wheat, and barley, figs, acorns by themselves or combined for a malty flavored drink, they’re bitter, comforting and caffeine free. though all toasted products including coffee, may have acrylamide, a likely-carcinogen found in heat-processed carbohydrates, the bitter flavour provides a gentle liver detox in itself without the stimulant effects of coffee. grocery stores carry brand names such as krakus, inca, postum, bambu, Carp, caf-lib or for a gluten-free alternative pick up roasted chicory or dandelion root at health food stores. surprisingly delicious.

millie says know the ins and outs of bowel action

know the ‘ins’ and mostly ‘outs’ of bowel action.
1. it’s normal to have an easy well formed bowel movement 1-3 times per day, ideally corresponding with the number of time you’ve eaten.
2. it’s not normal to ‘miss’ a day
3. high impact exercise (walking, running, dancing, stair climbing) uses gravity to assist in the compacting of stool in the colon and rectum
4. relaxing on the toilet properly promotes liberation
5. straining not only breaks blood vessels on the skin but can cause bleeding at the anus.
6. fluids and fibre are needed in large amounts to promote proper bowel action. 8-10 cups of liquid (ideally water) and a minimum of 30 grams of fibre. the standard north american diet contains 5-8 grams per day.
7. constipation is the most common cause of hemorrhoids, fissures
8. constipation contributes to bowel and colon cancer.

millie says AGE gracefully not gruesomely

AGE gracefully not gruesomely. who knows the definitive answer why marlon brando plunged from utmost physical beauty quickly over to the other side… using he, who was emotionally tormented (stress’ed), laden with diabetes (obese, sugared and pickled), had congestive heart failure (obese, oxidatively damaged) and cancer (mutated cell’ed) as a shockingly poignant example….one can envision AGE, despite its chemical complexities.

advanced glycation entities (AGE) are the result of a chemical process in the body that happens when a poor lifestyle (high fat, sugar, alcohol, smoking meets low fruits, veggies, antioxidants, fibre, exercise) greets middle age. what you get when you combine overdoses of sugar and with free-radicals in the long run. beauty one decade, beast the next. these lead to wrinkles, large pores and nevi in the nose, blindness from cataracts, clogs in the arteries leading to strokes and heart attacks and possibly cancer, of which marlon brando had…them all.
