A Holistic Approach to Weight Control,
Overall Health and Well-being
By Dana Stephens



Most of us are aware of the many contributing factors to weight gain and poor health ó be it mental, emotional, poor diet, lifestyle, genetics, hormonal, environmental or any combination of these. Some of these we donít have much control over. However, we do have the option to do what we can.

It helps to be realistic and patient in our approach to regaining our health, and ultimately achieving a comfortable weight, or more appropriately a comfortable size.
Two key contributors to size/weight gain, are that the body is either toxic (not cleansing) or not being properly fed nutritionally. Detoxifying is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. This is one of our bodyís most basic functions.

When the toxins become too much for our body systems to handle, they try to protect us by surrounding the matter with mucous or fat so it wonít cause an imbalance or trigger an immune reaction. This is another reason to keep our body fat low, because we store foreign substances in fatty deposits.

Unfortunately, this becomes more challenging as we age and the toxin load reaches a point where our systems can no longer handle it all. We may then have a more difficult time exercising and getting fresh air into our lungs.

At the same time, if we are not getting sufficient nutrition, our bodyís ability to properly detoxify and remain balanced will be compromised. Once the body becomes toxic and malnourished, a whole host of other issues can come into play.

The endocrine, circulatory, respiratory, digestive and eliminatory systems can tip out of balance, causing further weight gain, poor digestion and nutrient absorption, compromised immune system, depression, poor mental function, sleep problems, cravings, addictions, fatigue, and disease. Rather than trying to address each of these symptoms, doesnít it make more sense to address detoxifying and nutrition first?

CLEANSE, NOURISH and BALANCE the body. Clean out the body first, then nourish and rebuild and balance. Once balance is restored, the numerous symptoms will hopefully have gone away. Furthermore, if the digestive system is not clean, all the nutritious, organic whole foods we so carefully select will not be adequately absorbed and utilized. What a waste!

Amazon Herb Company offers a targeted, safe and effective way to address these critical first steps. A comprehensive first step is the Rainforest Wellness Cleanse and Detox Pack, which includes Digestazon PlusTM, Fiberzon PlusTM and Rainforest Treasure TeaTM. Digestazon Plus contains herbs and digestive enzymes that help break down protein residues in the blood which can contribute to inflammation and allergies.

Fiberzon PlusTM supports liver function, overall intestinal health and digestion with a synergistic blend of soluble and insoluble fibers, and botanicals like boldo and sangre de drago. Treasure Tea, which includes una de gato, pau de arco and chanca piedra, is like an herbal tonic that assists in cleansing all the body systems while providing numerous defensive and nutritive properties.

The Cleanse and Detox Pak, along with a good supply of pure water, exercise and fresh air, is a logical place to start taking control of your life. Amazon Herb Company offers a full, money-back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied with the products. Be patient. It takes time to undo the years and decades of toxins, damage and neglect that have gotten you to your current state of health.
