Melissa Deally:

Imagine getting up every day full of energy is

Melissa Deally:

if you were in your 20s. Again, what would that be? Like? What

Melissa Deally:

would that be worth to you? What is your health worth to you?

Melissa Deally:

Think about it. Your health isn't everything. But without

Melissa Deally:

it, everything else is nothing. And yet too many of us are

Melissa Deally:

taking it for granted. until something goes wrong. No one

Melissa Deally:

wakes up hoping to be diagnosed with a disease or chronic

Melissa Deally:

illness. And yet, we've never been taught how to be proactive

Melissa Deally:

in our health through our school system, or public health. As a

Melissa Deally:

registered health coach and integrative health practitioner,

Melissa Deally:

I believe it is time this information is made available to

Melissa Deally:

everyone. Combining new knowledge around your health and

Melissa Deally:

the ability to do my functional medicine lab tests in the

Melissa Deally:

comfort of your own home will allow you to optimize your

Melissa Deally:

health for today and all your tomorrow's don't wait for your

Melissa Deally:

wakeup call.

Melissa Deally:

Welcome back to the don't wait for your wake up call podcast.

Melissa Deally:e is coming out in late March:Melissa Deally:

rounding out the theme of the power with in. And what I mean

Melissa Deally:

by that is the power within our body to heal. And so today I

Melissa Deally:

want to talk to you about how our health has shifted in the

Melissa Deally:

last 50 to 100 years alongside our food having shifted our

Melissa Deally:

toxic load having shifted etc, etc. Because when we understand

Melissa Deally:

all of this, we can understand why we have the chronic illness

Melissa Deally:

that we have in the planet today. And if you don't want

Melissa Deally:

that to be your health outcomes, then you'll also realize you

Melissa Deally:

have choices in what you're putting in your body and what

Melissa Deally:

you're also helping your body get out in order to avoid your

Melissa Deally:

cells turning on your or triggering your genes to turn on

Melissa Deally:

disease. So we know from the science of epigenetics that's

Melissa Deally:

come out in the last 10 years or so that our genes are not the

Melissa Deally:

only factor that dictate our health outcomes. It's in fact,

Melissa Deally:

our genes plus the environment and lifestyle factors that

Melissa Deally:

impact our health outcomes. And our genes are only five to 10%

Melissa Deally:

of that equation. And our lifestyle factors and the

Melissa Deally:

environment we create inside our body is 90 to 95% of that

Melissa Deally:

equation. And that's really powerful and really empowering

Melissa Deally:

to me, because it means you have a choice, you don't simply have

Melissa Deally:

to live your life as dictated by your genes believing that, you

Melissa Deally:

know, my parents had high blood pressure or heart disease or

Melissa Deally:

breast cancer, whatever it was, therefore, I'm going to get it

Melissa Deally:

as well. We know that is no longer the case. And instead

Melissa Deally:

it's like, okay, they had these diseases. But I can choose to do

Melissa Deally:

something differently for the health of my body, the one and

Melissa Deally:

only body that I get in this lifetime, in order to ensure

Melissa Deally:

that my cells do not trigger those genes to turn on.

Melissa Deally:

And so how do we do that? Well, there's many factors here that I

Melissa Deally:

want to talk to you about today. But the biggest factor is

Melissa Deally:

inflammation in the body. It is the inflammation in the body

Melissa Deally:

that triggers ourselves to turn on those genes. And yes, the

Melissa Deally:

body needs some level of inflammation, we want healthy

Melissa Deally:

levels of inflammation, inflammation that will go to a

Melissa Deally:

sprained ankle to help it heal inflammation that goes to a

Melissa Deally:

wound to help it heal. We don't want to be living in a place of

Melissa Deally:

chronic inflammation. And yet unfortunately, because of our

Melissa Deally:

lifestyle factors, that is where so many of us are living today.

Melissa Deally:

Inflammation is caused by a higher toxic load toxins that

Melissa Deally:

get into our body that our body can't cope with. And they get

Melissa Deally:

stored in our body. And over time that causes inflammation.

Melissa Deally:

Inflammation can be triggered by us eating foods that we have

Melissa Deally:

food sensitivities to and that triggers an immune response. And

Melissa Deally:

when we do that day in and day out every day that causes an

Melissa Deally:

inflammatory response. inflammation can be caused

Melissa Deally:

simply because of an imbalance between the number of omega

Melissa Deally:

threes and Omega sixes that we are getting in our diet and our

Melissa Deally:

body doesn't make them so we have to get them through our

Melissa Deally:

diet. That's why they're called essential fatty acids. But Omega

Melissa Deally:

six is the inflammatory one is in everything so it's very easy

Melissa Deally:

to get through our diet and omega threes the anti

Melissa Deally:

inflammatory count During essential fatty acid is harder

Melissa Deally:

to get through our diet today. And as a result, we can become

Melissa Deally:

out of balance and be inflamed. Omega threes we get through our

Melissa Deally:

fatty wild fish like salmon and mackerel and anchovies, and

Melissa Deally:

sardines and oysters. And if you're not eating those four

Melissa Deally:

times a week, is probably not enough to counter the Omega

Melissa Deally:

sixes that you're so easily getting through your diet. And

Melissa Deally:

that leaves us inflamed. Poor sleep can leave us inflamed.

Melissa Deally:

Digestive struggles and issues poor stomach acid caused by high

Melissa Deally:

stress, maybe there's a beer fighting a pathogen, maybe

Melissa Deally:

there's a parasite in your belly, maybe you're, you've got

Melissa Deally:

bacterial overgrowth, or you've got Candida or yeast in your

Melissa Deally:

body, all of that causes inflammation as the body tries

Melissa Deally:

to heal. And when we have all of this going on all at the same

Melissa Deally:

time, on an ongoing basis, it causes our inflammatory levels

Melissa Deally:

to be higher, and it increases our risk of our cells triggering

Melissa Deally:

those genes to turn on disease. Many people have been diagnosed

Melissa Deally:

with chronic illnesses and told that they have to take a

Melissa Deally:

prescription drug for the rest of their life in order to mask

Melissa Deally:

the symptoms and have them feeling better. And they've also

Melissa Deally:

been told that they're going to have this for the rest of their

Melissa Deally:

life. But the reality is that dis ease of the body doesn't

Melissa Deally:

have to be a life sentence, that we can actually undo that by

Melissa Deally:

bringing the body back into balance, lowering the

Melissa Deally:

inflammation levels. And I just want people to know that that is

Melissa Deally:

absolutely possible. Yes, it takes some effort. Yes, it might

Melissa Deally:

take some dietary changes, yes, it might take some lifestyle

Melissa Deally:

changes. But if you want to heal, and you want to get off

Melissa Deally:

the drugs, and you want to get back to living life fully and

Melissa Deally:

feeling amazing again, you can do it. And if you don't ever

Melissa Deally:

want to be diagnosed with a chronic illness, you can choose

Melissa Deally:

that too. Because remember, 90 to 95% of that equation is

Melissa Deally:

triggered by the environment you choose to create inside or

Melissa Deally:

inside your body. And you just might not have ever been taught

Melissa Deally:

that before. And the other factor, of course, is that we

Melissa Deally:

can't see what's going on inside our body. And we don't

Melissa Deally:

necessarily pay attention to the symptoms that our body is giving

Melissa Deally:

us. As a society, we're very quick to write off symptoms as

Melissa Deally:

aging, and genetics, and seasonal allergies, and keep

Melissa Deally:

pushing through. Whereas those symptoms are our body's way of

Melissa Deally:

asking us to do something differently. And the sooner we

Melissa Deally:

tune into those symptoms, and try to discover what our body's

Melissa Deally:

trying to let us know and what it's asking us to do something

Melissa Deally:

differently, the sooner that we can come back into balance, and

Melissa Deally:

lower the inflammation level on the body.

Melissa Deally:

So I just want to dive into some history here that I learned

Melissa Deally:

recently. And I thought this was very interesting. And I hadn't

Melissa Deally:

actually realize the numbers or as drastic as they are. But if

Melissa Deally:isease, for example, which by:Melissa Deally:

still 12 years ago, now, it was already the cause of 32% of the

Melissa Deally:

deaths in North America, that's one in three people were dying

Melissa Deally:

of heart disease. If we go back to the 19th century, only eight

Melissa Deally:

people worldwide were ever reported to have had heart

Melissa Deally:

disease or died of heart disease, eight people in the

Melissa Deally:

19th century. And now, in the 21st century, it's 32% of the

Melissa Deally:can population. It was in the:Melissa Deally:

that it became the leading cause of death. So what changed

Melissa Deally:th century to the:Melissa Deally:

heart disease to become the number one cause of death. Then

Melissa Deally:

if we look at type two diabetes in the 19th century, it was

Melissa Deally:rare. In:Melissa Deally:

type two diabetes. Now it is over 10% of the population

Melissa Deally:

that's diagnosed, but insulin resistance is actually impacting

Melissa Deally:

90% of the US population nine 0% and Many people just haven't

Melissa Deally:

been diagnosed, they don't realize that they're on that

Melissa Deally:

path to type two diabetes. When we look at obesity, in the 19th

Melissa Deally:the population was obese. By:Melissa Deally:% by:Melissa Deally:And by:Melissa Deally:

statistically obese, that's not even just overweight, that is

Melissa Deally:

morbidly overweight, obese. And then we look at cancer in the

Melissa Deally:th century, around:Melissa Deally:cancer. By:Melissa Deally:

three. So you can see from the 19th, century two now, these are

Melissa Deally:

awful statistics in what's happening with our health. It's

Melissa Deally:

declining rapidly. And we have this incredible medical system

Melissa Deally:

that is amazing when it comes to acute health needs. But it

Melissa Deally:

doesn't seem to be helping us when it comes to these

Melissa Deally:

lifestyle, chronic diseases. So what's changed in this time?

Melissa Deally:

Well, let's talk about toxins. 144,000 manmade chemicals have

Melissa Deally:

been introduced into our world since World War Two. And the

Melissa Deally:

human body was never designed to have to deal with that level of

Melissa Deally:

toxic burden. That didn't exist in the 19th century. To that

Melissa Deally:

degree. In today's world, our babies are being born toxic, you

Melissa Deally:

can go to ew g.org and look at their 20 minute documentary

Melissa Deally:

called 10 Americans. And they did a study on just 400 Toxins

Melissa Deally:

not even 144,000 toxins and found that of the 400 toxins

Melissa Deally:

they were testing for that on average babies were being born

Melissa Deally:

with over 200 of them, because they're traveling through the

Melissa Deally:

placenta for a month. So in today's world, our babies are

Melissa Deally:

being born toxic.

Melissa Deally:

With 144,000 manmade chemicals getting into our body to our

Melissa Deally:

waterway, our airways being put on our skin, and when we put

Melissa Deally:

them on our skin, they get into our bloodstream in 26 seconds.

Melissa Deally:

And the average woman is using putting over 200 Toxins onto her

Melissa Deally:

skin every morning before she goes out the door to work just

Melissa Deally:

using personal care products that you can buy in the local

Melissa Deally:

drugstore and pharmacy and etc etc. Straight to the bloodstream

Melissa Deally:

are liver was never designed to have to deal with this toxic

Melissa Deally:

load. Our daily life is literally overloading the liver.

Melissa Deally:

And our liver is the epicenter of our body trying to stay clean

Melissa Deally:

and healthy is charged with over 500 reactions in the body in

Melissa Deally:

order to help us stay clean and healthy on the inside, including

Melissa Deally:

cleansing our blood every six minutes. But when it gets

Melissa Deally:

overloaded and bogged down, it can't do its job as well. So

Melissa Deally:

besides just those toxins, let's talk about other things that are

Melissa Deally:

bogging down our liver, alcohol intake, excessive workload and

Melissa Deally:

the stress triggered by that bogs down are our liver,

Melissa Deally:

smoking, prescription drugs and over the counter medicines. The

Melissa Deally:

liver has to try and process them as well detox them from our

Melissa Deally:

body after the fact. infection and illness whether it's acute

Melissa Deally:

or chronic stress, psychological and emotional, processed foods,

Melissa Deally:

sugar and white flour products and what else is in those

Melissa Deally:

processed foods, GMO foods, chemicals in order to extend the

Melissa Deally:

shelf life of those processed foods as well as environmental

Melissa Deally:

toxins, heavy metals, pesticides, etc. Our own

Melissa Deally:

allergies and food intolerances put extra stress on the liver.

Melissa Deally:

Poor nutrition and poor eating habits eating on the run. No

Melissa Deally:

even allowing our body to properly digest our food that we

Melissa Deally:

are eating, and then coffee and energy drinks. So, as you can

Melissa Deally:

see, our liver is really overburdened in today's world.

Melissa Deally:

And our liver actually has two phases of detoxification. And in

Melissa Deally:

phase two, it is when it is D, it is converting the toxins to

Melissa Deally:

being water soluble so that we can excrete them through our

Melissa Deally:

skin, through our bowels, through our urine and even

Melissa Deally:

through exhalation. But if it can't convert them to phase two

Melissa Deally:

and into being water soluble, it can't excrete them from the

Melissa Deally:

body. And so in that case, it will store them in our adipose

Melissa Deally:

tissue, or our fat closets. In order to prevent those toxins

Melissa Deally:

from getting into our bloodstream. It's simply doing

Melissa Deally:

the best it can with what it has to work with. And part of the

Melissa Deally:

reason that it can't, or it struggles to convert our toxins

Melissa Deally:

to being water soluble, so that we can excrete them is that it

Melissa Deally:

takes very specific nutrients in order for the liver to be able

Melissa Deally:

to do that well. And guess what, we also live in a tile and a

Melissa Deally:

time of nutrient deplete soils. And so as a result, the

Melissa Deally:

nutrients that the liver needs are not in our soils, therefore

Melissa Deally:

they're not grown into our food, therefore, they're not getting

Melissa Deally:

into our body. So basically, we have an under nourished and over

Melissa Deally:

burdened liver, trying to cope with what we are doing to it. Is

Melissa Deally:

it any wonder that there are so many people with fatty liver

Melissa Deally:

disease and different types of liver issues as well as chronic

Melissa Deally:

disease, because these toxins are building up inside our body

Melissa Deally:

causing inflammation, and then causing ourselves to turn on our

Melissa Deally:

genes and triggering some kind of disease. But here's the great

Melissa Deally:

news is you can do something about this, you can support your

Melissa Deally:

liver in helping get these liver the toxins out. This is what I

Melissa Deally:

talk about a lot. If you're a longtime listener to this show,

Melissa Deally:

you know, this is what I teach. Because I truly believe that

Melissa Deally:

when we support our liver and doing what it's supposed to do,

Melissa Deally:

that we can create a body that is inhospitable to disease, or

Melissa Deally:

liver just needs more support. And the education needs to get

Melissa Deally:

out there to let people know this.

Melissa Deally:

It's not taught through public health. It's not taught through

Melissa Deally:

our mainstream education system. We've been taught that we need

Melissa Deally:

to shower and wash our outer body for good health and good

Melissa Deally:

hygiene. But we haven't been taught how to look after our

Melissa Deally:

inner body. And detoxing is still something that is

Melissa Deally:

practiced to this day through Ayurvedic medicine in India,

Melissa Deally:

traditional Chinese medicine, the Latin American cultures. And

Melissa Deally:

where do you see most of the chronic illness in the world

Melissa Deally:

today? Yes, it's in the first world countries where we don't

Melissa Deally:

have these practices anymore. And I love how responsive our

Melissa Deally:

human body is when we create an environment in which it can

Melissa Deally:

heal. When we create that environment, it starts healing

Melissa Deally:

so quickly, when I guide people through a 21 day detox. Every

Melissa Deally:

single one of them in side 21 days, which three weeks notices,

Melissa Deally:

health improvements. For some of them, it's been long standing

Melissa Deally:

issues they've been dealing with. And then they realize,

Melissa Deally:

Wow, there is something to this. I'm on the right path and my

Melissa Deally:

body is finally starting to heal. Again, that's so

Melissa Deally:

empowering for them. health improvements from things like

Melissa Deally:

aches and pains go away. You know joint pain, muscle pains,

Melissa Deally:

headaches go away. They're sleeping better, sleeping more

Melissa Deally:

deeply. They no longer need daytime naps to brain fog goes

Melissa Deally:

away. Great mental clarity comes from lowering the inflammation

Melissa Deally:

on the body, too. I had one lady recently that couldn't get out

Melissa Deally:

of bed in the morning and walk barefoot on her bedroom floor.

Melissa Deally:

It hurts so much. It felt like I've actually had two ladies

Melissa Deally:

they had different feelings of this one lady said it felt like

Melissa Deally:

she was walking on rocks. And now that feelings gone away, and

Melissa Deally:

another lady who had to put special shoes on to walk on her

Melissa Deally:

hardwood floor and Now she doesn't have to. As the

Melissa Deally:

inflammation has lowered in the body, the body has started to

Melissa Deally:

heal, and they are regaining movement and regaining their

Melissa Deally:

life as a result. So is it any old detox that you can do? Well,

Melissa Deally:

if you want the best results, I highly recommend that you do a

Melissa Deally:

functional medicine detox that's created by a functional medicine

Melissa Deally:

doctor or a naturopathic doctor. And that's what I offer. And

Melissa Deally:

it's very specifically designed so that people can do it in

Melissa Deally:

their average everyday life. So you don't have to take vacation

Melissa Deally:

to do this. Instead of doing a six or seven day water fast,

Melissa Deally:

because for somebody who did that, first of all, most of the

Melissa Deally:

world wouldn't want to. And secondly, by the end of day two,

Melissa Deally:

you're not really functioning well enough to be at an optimal

Melissa Deally:

level to be at work, right. So we fast but we fast two days,

Melissa Deally:

two and a half days of each week, over three weeks, long

Melissa Deally:

enough to get the body into a state of autophagy, or deep

Melissa Deally:

cleaning, so that it can clear out those toxins. And it can

Melissa Deally:

start to get rid of dead cells and damaged cells. And then the

Melissa Deally:

human growth hormone kicks in and starts to generate new

Melissa Deally:

healthy young cells from which you get new vibrant energy. And

Melissa Deally:

by supporting phase two of liver detoxification with very

Melissa Deally:

specific herbs and supplements, that phase two can start

Melissa Deally:

happening and the body starts detoxing. When I guide people

Melissa Deally:

through this program, we talk about poop, it's important to

Melissa Deally:

talk about poop because we need to make sure those toxins are

Melissa Deally:

coming out. And people notice in three weeks, the difference in

Melissa Deally:

their poop and how that changes over that time. And they're

Melissa Deally:

fully aware of their body releasing toxins. So fasting is

Melissa Deally:

an important part of this and fasting for long enough. But

Melissa Deally:

doing it in a way where the body is still nourished, so that you

Melissa Deally:

can still go about your daily life. And so that's what I offer

Melissa Deally:

in my program is we use a shake powder, so that you're getting

Melissa Deally:

some protein, you're getting some vitamins and minerals,

Melissa Deally:

where you're getting a lot of vitamins and minerals, actually

Melissa Deally:

everything that your body needs, when not having any food so that

Melissa Deally:

you won't starve, you might have a little bit lower energy,

Melissa Deally:

because you do have a lower caloric intake. But we're

Melissa Deally:

keeping the body in that state of autophagy. And we're not

Melissa Deally:

turning on digestion, because we're having this through the

Melissa Deally:

course of the day and four shakes that you sip slowly, so

Melissa Deally:

that the body can just really easily absorb all that goodness

Melissa Deally:

without having to turn on digestion. The moment we start

Melissa Deally:

turning on digestion, the body comes out of that deep cleaning

Melissa Deally:

mode. And it's indigestion.

Melissa Deally:

And where do you spend most of your time these days, especially

Melissa Deally:

if you're working from home and have done so for the last two

Melissa Deally:

years and the refrigerators just over there, and we're constantly

Melissa Deally:

grazing all day long. On average, it takes two hours for

Melissa Deally:

a meal to be digested. And if it's a steak or something that's

Melissa Deally:

harder to digest, it could take three hours or if you have slow

Melissa Deally:

motility, it could take even longer. And so if you're putting

Melissa Deally:

more food in before the last food is fully digested, your

Melissa Deally:

body never gets to go into that deep cleaning state between

Melissa Deally:

meals and do what it's supposed to do. And so it's just more

Melissa Deally:

food and more toxins constantly going in and no time to clean

Melissa Deally:

up. And yes, the body is supposed to detox overnight. But

Melissa Deally:

are you allowing it enough time to do that? Are you getting

Melissa Deally:

enough sleep? Are you going to sleep with your meal, your

Melissa Deally:

dinnertime meal fully digested already so that digestion isn't

Melissa Deally:

happening when you're going to bed or you eating right up until

Melissa Deally:

bedtime and your body's still in digestion mode and not able to

Melissa Deally:

get into detox mode to properly detox overnight. In even when

Melissa Deally:

you are allowing your body to properly detox overnight, that's

Melissa Deally:

awesome. But if you're not getting those nutrients, for

Melissa Deally:

phase two of detoxification, the body has a harder time getting

Melissa Deally:

those toxins out of the body. So doing a 21 day detox has

Melissa Deally:

profound benefits for everyone that I've ever guided through

Melissa Deally:

it. And I love this program because when I guide you through

Melissa Deally:

it, I also support you with recipes and meal plans and show

Melissa Deally:

you or teach you how to be set up for success and support you

Melissa Deally:

throughout the program. So when you have questions, you can get

Melissa Deally:

them answered. Yes, you can go to a store and buy a detox kit

Melissa Deally:

and start doing it and then your brain starts going, what are you

Melissa Deally:

doing? This is different. Why are you eating these foods? Why

Melissa Deally:

aren't you eating those foods? Why don't you have some ice

Melissa Deally:

cream or whatever it is that you normally like to have. And so

Melissa Deally:

often we give into those voices in our head because it does feel

Melissa Deally:

hard and we don't even know if what we're doing if we're doing

Melissa Deally:

it right if it's going to benefit at us, et cetera, et

Melissa Deally:

cetera. But when you're on a guided programming, you

Melissa Deally:

understand all those benefits and why it's set up the way that

Melissa Deally:

it's set up. And you can get your questions answered when you

Melissa Deally:

have questions. Can I have this? I'm not sure what about that, or

Melissa Deally:

I'm going to this restaurant, how do I go to the restaurant

Melissa Deally:

and have a nice time with family and friends that still stick

Melissa Deally:

within what I'm allowed on this detox program. Because we can do

Melissa Deally:

that. That helps you stick with the program, and helps you get

Melissa Deally:

the best results. Those results I mentioned earlier, for from

Melissa Deally:

all of those people that love, love, love how they feel when

Melissa Deally:

they finish the detox and start loving how they feel even

Melissa Deally:

partway through the detox. And then we make it a lifestyle

Melissa Deally:

factor. Because you can't just detox once in today's world and

Melissa Deally:

think I'm all done. The reality is the toxins are here to stay.

Melissa Deally:

So we have to recognize that we have to just accept that and go

Melissa Deally:

okay, so what more can I do in order to help my body get these

Melissa Deally:

toxins out, I can't avoid them. But I can support my liver. I

Melissa Deally:

can give it added nourishment, in order to help get those

Melissa Deally:

toxins out. And I can do it on a regular basis so that it's not

Melissa Deally:

getting bogged down. So Quarterly, we do a seven day

Melissa Deally:

detox because those toxins are always coming in. So we want to

Melissa Deally:

always get them out. People love the results that they're

Melissa Deally:

getting, because they feel so much better. It's extremely

Melissa Deally:

powerful, it is not difficult to do. And it makes such a

Melissa Deally:

difference on your health outcomes. Because when we get

Melissa Deally:

those toxins out, we're significantly lowering the

Melissa Deally:

inflammation in the body. And then we are not having our cells

Melissa Deally:

trigger our genes to turn on disease. It's in fact a complete

Melissa Deally:

reset for the body. A detox like this, because our liver is also

Melissa Deally:

charged with detoxing excess estrogen in the body. So it

Melissa Deally:

starts to rebalance our hormones, which can be really

Melissa Deally:

important for so many women out there today who are struggling

Melissa Deally:

with symptoms of pms and menopause, because they have too

Melissa Deally:

much estrogen in their body.

Melissa Deally:

And that happens very easily in today's world because we have

Melissa Deally:

toxic estrogens coming in, we get estrogen through our food,

Melissa Deally:

our body makes estrogen and then there's a lot of Xeno estrogens

Melissa Deally:

are copycat or estrogen mimicry coming in through toxins into

Melissa Deally:

our body through plastics and water bottles, and etc, etc. And

Melissa Deally:

if the liver can't get rid of all that excess estrogen, it

Melissa Deally:

puts our hormones at a balance relative to our progesterone,

Melissa Deally:

which can be lower because of high stress levels. And we have

Melissa Deally:

symptoms of pms and menopause, that we simply tolerate thinking

Melissa Deally:

it's our lot in life. And it's not again, we can do something

Melissa Deally:

about this, we just need to know how. So toxins weigh something,

Melissa Deally:

a lovely benefit of a detox for many people is actually losing

Melissa Deally:

some weight. And also resetting our metabolism, understanding

Melissa Deally:

the timing of the way that we eat so that we can eat and

Melissa Deally:

digest and deep clean and eat and digest and deep clean. And

Melissa Deally:

when we eat nutrient dense foods, foods full of nutrients

Melissa Deally:

instead of our processed foods that have very few nutrients in

Melissa Deally:

them, we actually can sustain ourselves from one meal time to

Melissa Deally:

the next meal time without having to snack and graze in

Melissa Deally:

between. So we lose some weight. And we can maintain that weight

Melissa Deally:

loss because of these newfound habits coming out of the

Melissa Deally:

program. So there are so many wins from clear skin to you

Melissa Deally:

know, the aches and pains have gone away, etc. More mental

Melissa Deally:

clarity, which means we can actually be more productive

Melissa Deally:

because when we've got that clarity, we've got that focus,

Melissa Deally:

we can get more things done, to clearing out our body and just

Melissa Deally:

feeling lighter as a result, better sleep because the body

Melissa Deally:

doesn't have to struggle so hard to detox during the night

Melissa Deally:

because all of our systems are working better, to releasing of

Melissa Deally:

symptoms of hormonal imbalances, etc, etc, etc. It's a win, win

Melissa Deally:

win. So I'm sharing this podcast with you today because again, it

Melissa Deally:

comes back to that power within the power of our own body when

Melissa Deally:

we respect it, when we learn about it when we understand how

Melissa Deally:

it functions. And when we create give it the environment when we

Melissa Deally:

create the environment in which it can heal. It will heal so if

Melissa Deally:

something's going on for you, health wise, you're looking to

Melissa Deally:

feel better or maybe you're just looking to optimize your health

Melissa Deally:

Maybe you're of the mindset that you want to live as long as you

Melissa Deally:

can, and not spend 10 years in a nursing home at the end of your

Melissa Deally:

life, which is how long the average North American spends in

Melissa Deally:

a nursing home. To me, that's not living longer, they might

Melissa Deally:

say, we're living longer, but you're not really living. If

Melissa Deally:

you're in a nursing home, unable to truly care for yourself. I

Melissa Deally:

love to help people, we're set them on a path to be living

Melissa Deally:

longer and dying shorter. And that's what we can do when we

Melissa Deally:

start to pay attention to the insides of our body, keep the

Melissa Deally:

insides of our body clean, respect our health, and our body

Melissa Deally:

as our greatest asset. You look after your house, you vacuum you

Melissa Deally:

clean, etc, etc. you upgrade you renovate, you replace broken

Melissa Deally:

things, because you can see the inside of your house. So you

Melissa Deally:

take care of it, you do the same for your car, you take it for

Melissa Deally:

regular services, change the tires, do oil changes, etc, etc,

Melissa Deally:

etc. What do you do for your body? Most people probably have

Melissa Deally:

a shower daily. That's what we do for our body. And we eat

Melissa Deally:

three times a day for food and energy, I should say, right? But

Melissa Deally:

what is it that we're putting inside our body in that food, if

Melissa Deally:

it's processed food, it has only 17 of the 90 nutrients that are

Melissa Deally:

needed for optimal health. So right there we're lacking. But

Melissa Deally:

even if you're eating really well, because of our nutrient

Melissa Deally:

depleted soils, your body might not be getting everything that

Melissa Deally:

it needs. And so that's where supplementation comes in. Again,

Melissa Deally:

something we can avoid in today's world. In between giving

Melissa Deally:

our body what it needs to supplementation, and helping our

Melissa Deally:

liver do its job and getting out what we don't want all of those

Melissa Deally:

toxins. That's how we can put ourselves on a path of

Melissa Deally:

longevity.

Melissa Deally:

such a critical piece on our health journey. And I just want

Melissa Deally:

to continue getting this message out. Because when you know this

Melissa Deally:

information, then you have a choice, you have a choice to say

Melissa Deally:

you know what, I think I might need that. And step into that.

Melissa Deally:

Or at least book a call to talk to me a little bit further about

Melissa Deally:

your own health issues. And how I might be able to help you

Melissa Deally:

don't just accept the way your feeling is normal, and keep

Melissa Deally:

going. Because the symptoms will build. And as I've said time and

Melissa Deally:

time again, initially, the body whispers to you gently in the

Melissa Deally:

touch of a feather. And if you don't listen, it might come

Melissa Deally:

along and thump you with a brick. And if you still don't

Melissa Deally:

listen, it might show up and whack you with a wrecking ball.

Melissa Deally:

And I don't want anyone to get to that state I would much

Melissa Deally:

rather work with people at the whispering of the feather or the

Melissa Deally:

thumping of the brick stage. Because we can be empowered in

Melissa Deally:

our health. So thank you for listening. Thank you for joining
