When a patient comes to me for hypnotherapy or acupuncture treatment, that’s what they expect to get but its not what they receive. They get so much more. I address the person’s whole wellbeing from their lifestyle to nutrition, and one of the first priorities is to junk the gunk. This involves stopping people consuming fizzy drinks and many other processed foods (junk food)! I could write for hours on the subject of fizzy drinks and how bad they are from causing weight problems and teeth problems to diabetes, heart disease and even cancer due to the sugar. Did you know that sugar is more addictive than heroin? And if you think sugar free is a good alternative then think again, did you know artificial sweetener (saccharin) comes from coal tar???? Or did you know it turns into formaldehyde at body temperature??? Latest research suggests that fizzy drinks could be related to all sorts of potential health issues, and whilst we are discussing health issues the results from a large study were published in February 2018 which showed an increased risk of eating ultra processed foods and cancer. Its been known for some time that eating a balanced diet that includes plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables is good for our health, but this research gives even more evidence of why processed food should be avoided.
So take a step today and remove all processed foods and fizzy drinks from your diet, then buy the best food you can possibly afford. You have one body so look after it.
