Oil pulling is a way of killing the good bacteria before it gets into your system. I have seen this help alcoholics to stop their cravings to drink.

Oil pulling is a good way to eliminate much of the bad bacteria going into the gut. (Click picture for link) (click here for my blog on oil pulling)

Bee Pollen and Weight Control
Bee pollen works wonders in a weight-control or weight-stabilization regimen by correcting a possible chemical imbalance in body metabolism that may be involved in either abnormal weight gain or loss. The normalizing and stabilizing effects of this perfect food from the bees are phenomenal.
In weight-loss programs, bee pollen stimulates the metabolic processes. It speeds caloric burn by lighting and stoking the metabolic fires. Honeybee pollen is coming to be recognized as Nature's true weight-loss food. Bee pollen is a low-calorie food. It contains only ninety calories per ounce. (An ounce is about two heaping tablespoons.) It offers 15 percent lecithin by volume.
Lecithin is a substance that helps dissolve and flush fat from the body. This is one reason why bee pollen lowers low-density lipoproteins (LDL) surer and faster than any other food while helping increase the helpful high-density lipoproteins (HDL), which science says protect against cholesterol and heart disease.
By boosting the value of each nutrient present in the food you eat, bee pollen also eliminates cravings. Its natural phenylalanine content acts as an appetite suppressant. Phenylalanine is a natural amino acid that the body requires. It acts on your appestat, the control center that signals fullness and hunger. When you are overweight, phenylalanine exerts a natural appetite suppressant effect. When you need to gain weight, the phenylalanine in bee pollen works in reverse.

Bonus: Parasite Cleanse:
You also may want to do a parasite cleanse. Before thinking that is not for you, realize over 90% of people have parasites and don’t even know it. This could be you if you get rashes, warts, fungus on finger or toe nails, yeast infections, constant itching, athlete’s foot, std’s, skin conditions like eczema, hair loss, and more. A 30 day parasite cleanse will help to remove this. A good one can be found with essential oils from a company that I can email you. Email me at email@example.com since the company doesn't want me to mention them directly in the blogs. This will remove any bad bacteria or fungus in your system.
