Moving into her thirties, Christine continued her hectic work life, smoking cigarettes, maintaining sugar consumption, and not making time to rest or to eat balanced meals. Her first real physical difficulties began in this decade of her life.

At thirty-one, Christine injured her spine. Perhaps her body was trying to tell her. “I need you to slow down and start paying attention because I can’t keep up with you. If you don’t start taking care of me, things are going to go seriously wrong..” Christine did not hear this or acknowledge these warnings. After her recovering from her spinal injuries, even though she suffered from leg numbness, she did not stop working or even slow down her pace.

Totally, exhausted, she collapsed and reinjured her spine. At this point,if Christine had stopped to rest, her adrenal glands would have repaired themselves and been able to support her body. By thirty-six, quit smoking and gave up all stimulants. This was a great thing to do for her body. Unfortunately, Christine did not slow down. “She was on the fast train.” She though she was doing the right thing by exercising. But she was only getting four or five hours of sleep at night, which prevented her body flowing into the alkaline tide to Rest, Repair and Regenerate. Her body did not have enough time to wind down and fully enter the night state of repair. Then, bouncing out of bed before she had a change to repair launched her body back into a full day state. Christine spent too many hours of the day and night in an acidic state of dominance.

There was no denying that Christine had reached the next stage Burn-out at forty-seven years old. Christine had a heart attack while going on a flight to Paris while doing a fashion show. She then had to under go open heart surgery. The actual surgery was the Ultimate reality check. The surgeons had told her that she would be back on her feet in six weeks, but six weeks after surgery it still hurt to breathe. Christine was fragile and weak. Her arduous recovery lasted over a year.

“People asked, “How could you end up with open-heart surgery after all the things you did to get yourself well and healthy?” She told them it must have been all the stress I was under. They were shocked, they really didn’t believe that stress does these things even though they hear it all the time. They look at you and say, “Yeah, yeah, if your stressed go to Cancun.”

It is true that Christine’s stress was a primary contributing factor in her adrenal exhaustion, which ultimately lead to her heart disease.



Is the two hours after eating food. You body is constantly adjusting to these from day to night. It is like having your hands on the steering wheel of your car. You do not steer in an absolutely straight line-even if the road is relatively straight and smooth. You constantly make adjustments to the steering wheel. Likewise, your autonomic nervous system is constantly making adjustments from sympathetic to parasympathetic mode.

When your body’s autonomic nervous system flows from one to the other, it is a time for your body to balance the day’s acidity. This is known as the alkaline tide. That also balance your body pH levels. That allows all the repair processes, such as making new cells, membranes, tissues, enzymes, hormones, and neurotransmitters, to continue.

Before electricity, sitting by the light of a fire at night was a natural way for our ancestors to change rhythm and to wind down from a day of work. When the fire burned out after a couple of hours humans went to sleep, and their bodies flowed gently into the alkaline tide, the natural repair and rejuvenation phase, when cells, membranes, tissues, hormones, enzymes, and neurotransmitters are regenerated.

But with today’s lifestyle of some people this important body process is being depleted and this is when your body really starts too suffer. To much coffee, living on takeaways, not getting enough rest, health problems, smoking and environment problems the body struggles to keep up with the demands you are constantly putting on your body.

This is why it is important to slow down and have a day of complete rest and look after what your body needs, so you have less sick days, less stress, a better sex drive, a happier mood. All it takes is a few small changes and your own body can make the adjustments it needs to do the right processes to repair and make you less tied.







Highly ambitious people tend to love the adrenaline rush, risk-taking, and rising to challenges. Unfortunately, as people progress along in life, they often become more and more successful but less able to enjoy the fruits of their labours. You have it all, but you feel too tired or too overscheduled to enjoy what you have earned. It is just not as much fun as it used to be. You may wonder how it happened. You may feel that there is nothing you can do about it now; that it is too late. There is actually plenty you can do about it. You can feel better, look better, be healthier, sleep more soundly, and so much more.

Do you run on empty, preferring the high from hunger to the “full sleepy feeling”. There’s an adrenaline thing going on when you are not eating and you are working hard and feeling edgy. “You love being on edge with that feeling of everything being sharp. It’s almost like taking uppers and having a high”. Indeed, the adrenaline rush is very much like the high you get from drugs. And it just so happens that the adrenaline rush is the high that seduces many people.

Stress hormones such as adrenaline are secreted from your adrenal glands to prepare the body for acute and chronic physical and emotional stress. Most of us have heard of the adrenal glands, but very few people understand how they function and why they are important. Your two adrenal glands are triangular-shaped organs weighing less than five grams each that rest one above each kidney. These glands-about the size of two or three pinto beans each-secrete adrenaline and other stress hormones that influence nearly every bodily function.

The release of adrenaline is roughly proportional to the intensity of a situation. In other words, the amount of stress hormones that are secreted, and at what intervals, is determined by the degree of “danger” perceived by the brain. Encountering a great white shark while on vacation would elicit a larger and longer adrenaline response than going to a surprise birthday party in your honour. The adrenaline response occurs in the time it takes to snap your fingers.

The neo-cortex of the brain supposedly differentiates humans from all other animals. It is where memory, learning, speaking, and other intellectual functions, including processing the stimuli from your world, take place. The neo-cortex is the initially registers any given experience. Beneath the neo-cortex is the limbic system, which is sometimes referred to as the emotional brain. The limbic system translates sensory input into emotion. Instantaneously, your hypothalamus registers this information. Simultaneously, the sympathetic mode of your auto nervous system reacts, causing the rapid release of adrenaline, the fight-or-flight hormone from your adrenal medulla-the inner portion of your adrenal glands.

The adrenaline response can also be secreted without an emotional trigger. You could be in a serious car accident and be unconscious, and your adrenals would be pumping adrenaline like crazy in an attempt to manage your blood pressure and to otherwise stabilize your body in a life-threatening situation.

Two 250ml glass per day. Two thousand years ago the Greek physican Diosorides wrote Aloe Vera was an effective treatment for everything from constipation to burns to kidney ailments. The ‘magic’ of Aloe Vera is that it contains a natural mix of ingredients (including essential vitamins and minerals) that help supplememt those found in our bodies. These work together to stimulate natural healing in the body by improving cell function. Taken internally, Aloe Vera is benefical to the digestive tract and waste removal organs. Aloe Vera also helps the body in its cleansing function, detoxifying and flushing out harmful toxins and other impurities, normalizing metabolism. Another important role of Aloe Vera is that it helps stimulate the body’s immune system to fight sickness and disease.

Externally, Aloe Vera is widely used for many skin disorders and as a beautifying ingredient to help nourish and revitalize the skin.

Aloe vera is quite an incredible medical plant full of nutritional benefits. It is a succulent plant and part of the lily family (Liliaceae), the same family that garlic and onions belong to. Different parts of the plant are used for different purposes and aloe vera has both internal and external applications.

Aloe vera contains over 200 active components including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, polysaccharide, and fatty acids – no wonder it’s used for such a wide range of remedies! The bulk of the aloe vera leaf is filled with a gel – like substance, which is approximately 99% water. Humans have used aloe therapeutically for over 5000 years – now that’s a long – standing track record!

Aloe vera contains many vitamins including A,C,E, folic acid, choline, B1,B2, B3 (niacin), B6. Aloe vera is also one of the few plants that contain vitamin B12. Some of the 20 minerals found in aloe vera include calcium, magnesium, zinc, chromium, selenium, sodium, iron, potassium, copper, manganese.

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. There are about 22 amino acids that are necessary for the human body and it is said that 8 of these are essential. Estimates of the amino acids found in aloe range from 18-20 amino acids, with all 8 essential amino acids. Aloe vera also includes quite an impressive range of fatty acids. Aloe contains three plant sterile, which are important fatty acids – HCL cholesterol (which lowers fats in blood), campesterol, and B – sitosterol. All are helpful in reducing symptoms of allergies and acid indigestion. Other fatty acids include linoleic, linolenic, myristic, caprylic, oleic, palmitic, and stearic.

Aloe Vera is a well-known adaptogen. An adaptogen is something that boosts the body’s natural ability to adapt to external changes and resist illness. It is thought the aloe’s power as an adatogen balances the body’s system, stimulating the defence and adaptive mechanisms of the body. This allows you an increased ability to cope with stress (physical, emotional and environmental stress like pollution).

Poor digestion is related to many disease. A properly functioning digestive tract is one of the keys and foundations of health. Aloe is known to soothe and cleanse the digestive tract and help improve digestion. The interesting thing about taking aloe internally is that, because it is an adaptogen, it helps with either constipation or diarrhea, helping to regulate your elimination cycles in whatever way you need. It’s been a great remedy for people with problems such as irritable bowel syndrome as well as acid reflux. Aloe also helps decrease the amount of unfriendly bacteria and in our gut keeping your healthy intestinal flora in balance. Aloe is also a vermifuge, which means it helps to rid the body of intestinal worms.

Aloe Vera is a gelatinous plant food, just like seaweeds and Chia seeds. The main benefit to consuming gelatinous plant foods in your diet is that these gels move through the intestinal tract absorbing toxins along the way and get eliminated through the colon. This will help the proper elimination of waste from your body and help detoxification of your body.
