How I lost 16 pounds in 10 days!
This past winter I had gained weight. I started February 1st on a mission to lose weight. It went well for a time as I watched my weight drop from 200 pounds to 195 after a couple of weeks. Sadly I relaxed my resolve and by April 1st my weight had blossomed to 201. More than I started! Something had to be done! So on April 7th I decided to take drastic action. I started the “Master Cleanse”! I was determined to last 10 days and not to cheat. So on the evening of April 7th I weighed (200) and drank my first cup of “tea”. Note: You can have all the clean water you want on the cleanse and it is recommended to help carry toxins away from the body. I strongly recommend only PiMag water. Get a Waterfall!
Let me explain the three prong plan of the “Master Cleanse”.
1.) Each evening drink a cup of herbal tea. I used a product I bought at Ingles called “Smooth Move” or as I called it “POO-POO tea”. It is described on the package as a “herbal Stimulant Laxative”. The taste is sweet and grassy. It’s not bad and you will come to look forward to the sweet taste. I do warn you not to let the tea steep too long. The longer it steeps the stronger the tea, and it can cause cramping. Something I learned the hard way. It will prompt you to rise early the next day to vist the toilet. I used only PiMag water for my tea and recommend you insist on the same. Mine came from the new Nikken Waterfall. It’s very affordable and every household should have one.
2.) Each morning first thing, do a salt water flush. This is by far the most difficult part of the program. I took a quart jar, added 2 tablespoons of sea salt, and filled the jar with pimag water from the Waterfall. I would have to drink the quart salt water flush (SWF) as quickly as possible all the while resisting my gag reflex. I will not lie, the SWF was very difficult. I kept counting the days and as soon as one was completed I would say to myself one less SWF to go. Over the course of the 10 days I did not do the flush on the 7th day. To do the SWF you must remain close to the toilet for about an hour. The idea is the mixture is close to sea water and can not be absorbed by the body. It will go straight through you and clean any remaining material in your colon.
3.) Lemonade. The recipe for the lemonade for the cleanse is as follows. In a quart jar place 8 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice, 8 tablespoons of Maple Syrup class B. (real maple syrup not maple flavored syrup) fill the quart jar with PiMag water from your Waterfall. I mixed mine in the morning before the SWF and placed the quart in the Fridge. I pour my lemonade into a glass several times a day. Prior to drinking I would add Cayenne Pepper to taste. The first day I would add very little pepper but by day 10 I surprised myself at just how much of the pepper I could add without noticing the taste. The lemonade is good!! You will miss it after your 10 days are up. I only drank one quart of lemonade a day as I wanted weight loss. If your only interested in the cleansing you can double your lemonade to two quarts to avoid weight loss. I drank only this from April 8th to April 17th.
I went from 200 pounds to 184 pounds in 10 days. That’s a weight loss of 16 pounds. I have been told many times I was full of “it”, but I do not believe anyone is carrying around 16 pounds of fecal material in their colon. It is true however that even after 10 day without any solid foods there was still solid material being passed. I believe there was a great loss of swelling from all over my body to account for the weight loss. The swelling is most noticeable in your abdomen. You will, in most cases, have a very flat tummy after 10 days.
I had injured my right knee jumping off my tractor and the injury had lingered for months. Within 4 days of the cleanse the knee pain was completely gone! I personally believe there is a corresponding loss of acidic fluid buildup. I also noticed all my joints, shoulder, elbow, knee felt tighter and stronger. I believe this was a result of a loss of acidic fluid.
I missed one day of training with weights while I was on the cleanse. I used the same weights and had tremendous energy while on the cleanse. You would expect a loss in energy but I found the opposite to be true. When the body is not using energy to digest food you will find that energy available for other activities.
I had a dull headache for 3 days. I believe this a result of giving up a two pot daily coffee habit cold turkey.
My senses were very sharp. For some reason going without solid food has a sharpening effect on the senses. I could smell peanuts that were under my recliner. I thought it was my imagination to begin with but upon inspection there was peanuts that had been dropped under the chair. Perfumes, deodorants, hair sprays become noxious and offensive to the nose. You will actually taste the smells of these products when you smell them. My thinking too became very clear, almost of a meditation state. My memory seemed very sharpe and I found it easy to recall names and information. I do not know if it was my mind or my eyes but colors seemed cleaner, and crisper while on the cleanse.
I believe that any diet should be started with this cleanse. It would have been to difficult to diet with the accumulation of fluid and fecal material in your body. If instead you began with the cleanse you will get rid of all the unwanted stuff in your body, heal your colon so any diet you put yourself on will be more successful. I immediately follower the cleanse with 2 days of Kensen Vital Balance Meal Replacement. It’s a whole food meal replacement, that’s loaded with pre and post biotic enzymes. I wanted to make sure any loss of beneficial enzymes in my gut were replaced.
In conclusion i have found my cleanse to be beneficial in so many ways. My knee pain is gone, my stomach is flat, and I find I need less food than before. I have also noticed I do not get winded so easily as I did before the cleanse. So far 11 days later I have gained less than 2 pounds of my weight back. I still want to get down to 180 and have plans to use the Vital Balance to continue to loss the rest of my weight. If you have any questions about the cleanse I suggest you visit the site: www.themastercleanse.org or give me a call.

Bluegrass Music Chicken Shack Style
Just up the road from my house a friend of mine has converted an old chicken house into a venue for bluegrass music. Every so often they will throw the doors open to everyone and invite musicians from far and wide to come and enjoy the night. Last night was just such a night. A huge cast iron pot of Brunswick stew along with a table with baked beans, slaw, bread, deserts, and drinks greeted you as you walk inside. The charge for all this? Nothing! Free to one and all. There were containers set up where one could donate as much as they were able to the cause so more of these events could be had. The Chicken Shack is located between Homer and Baldwin Georgia on Hwy. 441. It’s about 15 miles north of exit 149 on I-85 or 5 miles south of the Cornelia exit on I-985. I present for your enjoyment a few videos I shot of some of the entertainment last night. The last video is in the back of the shack of some of the musicians warming up to go on stage! The older gentleman playing the fiddle is 92 years young! Ok sorry but next time I will know to turn my phone side ways. :o) I will post the next event schedule on facebook.

The Wisdom In Paint Spatter
When I was a freshman in college I worked at a hardware store in my home town of Commerce, Ga. Wright’s Ace Hardware. The store was started by Bill Wright selling one product, shingles. He soon expanded into roofing nails then never stopped adding products. I came into the story nearly 20 years later when they hired a college kid, me, to sweep floors, stock shelves and anything else Pryor Wright, Bill’s older brother asked me to do. I was mentored by Howard, a kind and funny black man that walked with a limb caused from frost bite he had gotten in Korea during the war. I will never forget Howard. There was an older painter, Jack who came by most every mornings to drink the coffee Mrs. Wright would always make for the customers and get his paint mixed. Jack was always decked out in painter’s white clothes that were freshly washed but would be covered with tiny drops of every color of paint imaginable. I always enjoyed mixing the paint and Jack was always patient with me as I learned how to get the colors right. Sometimes I would mess up and get it wrong, but Jack would have another cup of coffee and allow me to remix until I got the shade he desired. One day while letting Jack’s paint shake in the paint shaker a man older than me, he must have been 30 came in to ask Jack for a job. He went on and on how well he could paint. The man and was very convincing, at least to me on how he and Jack would be able to do three time the work. At one point he pointed to Jack’s paint spattered clothes and commented how his paint would be put where it went and not on clothes or anywhere else it did not belong. Jack listened then told the man he did not need any help now. After the “painter want to be” left Jack turned to me and said words that have served me well my entire life. Jack’s remark was, “Anybody that doesn’t make mistakes is not doing anything.” Whenever faced with a task I was unsure of my ability to do I would remember the wise words of Jack the painter. It gave me confidence to attempt the task knowing that if I failed it would not be for a lack of effort.

Nikken for Christmas
Thanksgiving is next week and then Christmas is coming. We will all be pummeled by ads and commercials vying for our hard earned money. I offer you a great gift alternative that will keeping giving for years to come, Nikken. What better gift than one that improves health and well being for as long as the recipient uses it. Nikken has gifts for everyone in any price range! I offer a few suggestions. How about the traditional Christmas gift, socks! I know who would be interested in getting socks for Christmas. Well anyone that runs! Nikken socks are incredible for helping to prevent blisters! Nikken socks also have infrared technology which keeps your feet warm, know any hunters? Speaking of hunters and athletes how do they do without the new Nikken Sport Bottle? Nikken Powerbands are great for anyone whether concerned with fashion or some comfort challenge. I wear one of the Nikken Powerband necklaces everyday. My neck and traps are prone to get, for lack of a better term knots. I can put my necklace on and these knots melt away. I loan my necklace all the time to people complaining with a tight neck or headache. It sure beats taking a pill! Though I have found no claim or study to support this I am told by three ladies that use Ciaga-V regularly that it has mad their hair thicker and stopped their hair loss. What a great gift to give! The Nikken magnetic sleep mask is incredible for helping anyone get a good nights sleep. Ask anyone that uses one. When it was first released it was marketed to “reduce fine wrinkles around the eyes within six weeks”. We are not allowed to make the claim any more even though there are medical studies to support this claim and many folks that swear this is the case since using the Nikken sleep mask. The Kenko Magflex is a great gift for anyone with a back issue! Know any truck drivers? Give them a Kenko seat and they will be forever in your debt as you will have improved their lives! Give someone Nikken insoles and listen to them talk about how much more energy they have! If there is a cat or dog on your Christmas list this year check out Nikken’s Pet Pad. If your animal is older and has joint problems you owe it to them to get this pad for them! Give a Nikken sleep system or Nikken Waterfall filter and watch their health and mood improve. I could go on but it’s time for my blueberry muffin. Check out what Nikken has to offer this year and don’t just give a gift, give a gift that will improve lives!

If one were prone to be dismayed, one would be dismayed. There exists a drumbeat of predictions of impending doom. In news broadcast, radio shows, and on Google only the worst is on the way. There is a choir of “Chicken Littles” each trying to chip louder than all the other chicks. It makes for good ratings. Folks with seasoning have heard before that “the sky is falling” and God willing will hear it again. No one knows what the future holds. “Do not be dismayed!” Refuse to waste energies with worry. Worry does not bring profit. Opportunities exist no matter what. If folks believe that bad things are about to transpire it will happen. When optimistic beliefs are held then good things will occur. “What ever you ask for in prayer will be given if you believe it is already there.” Stop focusing your energy on all the bad you believe is about to occur and believe “there are plans to prosper you”. The power of life is more powerful than “economic policies”, or “economic cliffs”. Lets all believe that only good things shall occur and they will. If just one person holds this same belief, that prayer will have more influence on economic prosperity than the Federal Reserve, and THE World Bank combined. A focusing of our collective minds is call action. In our prayers hold that prosperity and good health is a reality to everyone.

What Norman Says
“Be on fire for something. Pour yourself out, and you will never lose energy and vitality in doing so. You only lose energy when life becomes dull in your mind. Your mind gets bored and therefore tired of doing nothing. You don’t have to be tired. Get interested in something. Get absolutely enthralled in something. Throw yourself into it with abandon. Get out of yourself. Be somebody.
Do something. Don’t sit around moaning about things.
The man who is doing something isn’t tired. If you’re
not getting into good causes, no wonder your tired.
You’re disintegrating. You’re deteriorating. You’re
dying on the vine. The more you lose yourself in
something bigger than yourself, the more energy
you will have!”

Nikken Tater Test
This water experiment was performed by Dr. Chad Nielson. He used, from left to right, tap water, reverse osmosis water, well water, and Nikken’s PiMag water. The water in each container was changed out weekly with fresh water. The sweet potatoes were organically grown and were approximately the same size at the beginning. The experiment went for 5 weeks from beginning to the time the pictures were taken.
I never get tired of seeing this picture. It is an example of what can happen to the cells in our bodies. It is our choice, do you want to thrive or would your prefer one of the other choices. Look how the tap and reverse osmosis water dehydrated the potatoes. These choices of hydration will do the same thing in the human body.
