This is the question that has been on my mind for a while now. If I’m honest, the way I eat is probably a mixture of all of the above. I always make sure I have raw veggies or salad, I love a lot of vegetarian/vegan meals and will find myself ordering them when I’m eating out and I do eat meat but not every day.
When I arrived home from Greece a month ago, I decided to cut meat out from my diet. This was an experiment on myself to see if I would feel any changes or if going vegetarian would work better for my body. I’m happy to say I gave it a go, but I’ve now realised that a meat free diet isn’t what works best for me. By the 4th week I was feeling very dizzy, light headed and tired in the afternoons and I never usually feel like that. I put it down to probably a lack of iron (which can lead to anaemia in severe cases). Although I made sure I was eating iron rich foods I still felt like I was getting worse.
So this little experiment got me thinking.
Paleo, Vegan, Raw and Vegetarian lifestyles all have proven benefits and each have a strong argument as to why eating a certain way is best in order to reach optimum health. I’ve read books about vegetarian lifestyles that have healed many people suffering from various diseases. I’ve watched documentaries about the amazing benefits of eating a raw/vegan diet. The book I am currently reading “The Big Fat Surprise” is all about meat and saturated fats and how it is vital to include these foods in our diets for the body to function correctly.
What I have come to realise is at the end of the day you have to listen to your body and give it what it needs. Each and every person is different so what works for others may not work for you. Only you know how you are feeling and the signals your body is giving you. If you are a vegetarian and thriving then great, if you are a meat eater and thriving, that’s also great too. There are however important factors to consider when following these nutritional plans and that is eating organic whole foods that are locally grown and in season. Choosing grass-fed meats and poultry from a local butcher who is well informed about their produce. And lastly, detoxifying through colonics and coffee enemas. Detoxing is significantly important in any wellness regime and although you may eat healthy and exercise regularly, if you are not trying to flush out and detoxify your body you will still be carrying around toxic waste no matter how clean your lifestyle is.
I will leave you with a post from the founder of The Sharlz Taki Foundation about toxic colon’s and why it is vital we “clean out house” from the inside out!

As some of you know, I’m currently training at Release Wellness Centre in Newtown (Sydney) to become a Colon therapist.
Hippocrates stated “Death begins in the colon” and this picture explains how. The amount of toxicity stuck in the colon actually breaks down into “Mucoid plaque”, which is disease forming.
Statistically, Australia and NZ are ranked 8th and 9th in the world for Colorectal Cancer. This is scary stuff!! Not only does the risk of Colorectal and bowel cancer increase but the colon is the starting point of many (if not all) other Cancers and diseases too.
With the increase of processed foods, refined sugar, fast foods, sedentary lifestyles, overeating, stress and pollution, the colon is under more pressure than it has ever been before.
Without colonic irrigation therapy, we are not able to rid the body of this toxicity, on our own, at the rate we need, to stay well.
Leanne McGraw is the owner of Release Wellness and has been in the field of Colon Hydrotherapy for over 16 years. She herself has seen overburdened and diseased bodies return to vitality and vigour through holistic health that incorporates Colonics (At Release there is only one method used, the closed Gravity-centred method).
It is essential to cleanse your colon, not just in the prevention and cure of Cancer, but many other diseases too. Imagine all of the “crap” (literally) we are carrying inside our bodies. I strongly urge anyone to make a booking and regain their health, turn back the hands of time and glow from the inside out.
Disease prevention (and cure), energy increase, vitality, youthfulness, life longevity and life quality – these are the benefits that Colonics will give you. I only post about what I know is true and what I’m incredibly passionate about – and that is why!
