Glandular Balance Helps Weight Loss

Why overweight risks soar with diet soft drink consumption which suffocates the immune system, clogs the digestive system and imbalances the glandular system.

It's no wonder so many people suffer with glandular imbalances and the side effects. People who drink diet soft drinks do not lose weight so what do diet soft drinks do for us?

The answer is ... in fact, people gain weight, confirmed by findings from eight years of data collected by Sharon P. Fowler, MPH, and her colleagues at the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio.

Fowler's team looked at seven to eight years of data on 622 study participants (aged 25 to 64) who were of normal weight at the beginning of the study, about a third became overweight or obese.

The per capita consumption is a shocking 100+ liters per adult and the trend is discouraging! In fact, diet drinks alone are being linked to a higher risk of weight gain and obesity and have a chemical brew that you may want to avoid altogether!

Overweight risk soars 41% with each daily can of diet soft drink!

The food we choose has a dramatic impact on the glandular system, which is one of the most complex and intricate systems in the body and scientists have just begun to unravel its many mysteries.

Glands constantly strive to maintain that delicate and harmonious balance of body biochemistry known as homeostasis.

The main glands are the pineal, pituitary, thyroid, thymus, pancreas, adrenals, ovaries and testes. They must respond to environmental changes as well as to the emotions and “time of life” with appropriate hormones to control such complex processes as weight, adaptation to stress, rate of metabolism, blood sugar levels, reproduction, and aging to name a few.

Although the liver is not technically part of the glandular system, it is intimately involved with glandular activities – it helps to balance hormones, convert carbohydrates, fats and proteins for energy or storage, and also filter toxins from the blood.

Our liver can easily be overwhelmed by the stresses of pollution, chemical additives, poor nutrition and poor digestion.

When the liver is stressed, it can stress the entire glandular system, for example: when the liver becomes distressed, sugar levels get out of whack and that puts stress on the pancreas and adrenals.

When the liver fails to keep toxins in the digestive system and these toxins enter the bloodstream, it puts stress on the thyroid (sinus and skin problems), adrenals (kidney troubles) and reproductive organs (PMS).

Processed foods and non-food ingredients

When food chemicals (which include additives, coloring, preservatives, and a large list of over 10,000 non-food ingredients included in refined, processed, enriched foods) are ingested on a regular basis, our liver becomes over-worked, and toxins start to filter out to the rest of our body resulting in disease and weight problems.

Furthermore, researcher findings show that losing the ability to judge a food's calorie content based on its sweetness may be contributing to the dramatic rise in sickness, overweight and obesity.
