Bottom line: I lost weight due to cleansing the body of toxins, eating and drinking only organic / all natural, and the nasal spray HCG.

This wellness plan has nothing to do with discipline or will power. It has all to do with focusing on organic / all natural intakes and following the HCG-centered wellness plan via my naturopathic doctor.

HCG is human chorionic gonadotropin, a prescription via doctor.

There are 4 phases to this wellness plan.

Phase 1, 3 weeks duration, cleanses the body of its junk—toxins—all too familiar to North American unhealthy eating.

Phase 1 is based on organic / all natural intakes only. It is also drinking l/2 to 1 gallon of bottled water / day. The wellness plan food specifics are provided by the doctor (see 3rd to last paragraph). Phase 1 includes organic teas. It focuses on 6 small meals / day plus supplements via the doctor.

Take 2 half-hour walks / day throughout all phases.

Phase 1 accents cleansing toxins, not weight loss; however, I lost 7 pounds during that time frame. The doctor says most people lose 4-6 pounds in Phase 1.

After Phase 1, gorge for 2 days. This is not optional. Eat do-nuts, banana splits, pizza, that is, high calorie foods. Why? To fill up the body’s food pantries for the next 40 days of 500 calories intake / day.

Phase 2 starts the 40 days of losing a pound a day. First thing in the morning, empty bladder, weigh in naked, then use HCG nasal spray. Mark down each day’s date and weight. In Phase 2, HCG triggers the hypothalamus to reset body settings to good health.

Eat organic / all natural only, including bottled water. Eat 4-ounce lunch and supper intakes of chicken, turkey, haddock, flounder, halibut, sole, tilapia, cod, shrimp, grass-fed beef or veal. Eat salads. Eat for fruits apples, strawberries and grapefruits as mid-morning, mid-afternoon and evening snack meals. Drink organic teas, including Smooth Move Tea to facilitate regular bowel movements. Remember: all organic / all natural intakes only.

At the close of 40 days, no more HCG nasal spray.

Phase 3, 3 weeks duration, is “lock-in” when I locked in the weight loss and body settings reset by HCG during the 40 days. In Phase 2, HCG triggers the hypothalamus to reset body settings to good health. Phase 3 is putting into place that new good health.

Phase 4 is for the rest of my life—eating 80 % organic / all natural while eating 20% conventional, that is, “cheating” or allowing toxins.

This wellness plan has gifted me at age 69 with depression lifted, increased energy and clarity of thought.

I turned 70 on January 4, 2009, and feel super with the new weight loss and amazing health gifts. I now look forward to this next decade. It is an answer to pray, truly.
