To everything there is a season...

Just like in the song by The Byrds, there is a season for everything. This fall I will be transitioning from Inner Health Colon Hydrotherapy to Juice on Main, a cold pressed, organic juice and smoothie bar in Medfield. We don't have the exact opening date yet, though we hope to be up and running by the end of September.

As with all changes, I have very mixed feelings. I am really excited about opening Juice on Main. Juicing has amazing health benefits and fits with my personal and professional mission of helping people improve their health. 

I am sad about winding down with Inner Health, which I opened in 2004. During this time I have been blessed to share your journey to better health and will miss you. 

I am exploring ways to keep Inner Health running and will keep you informed of changes as they develop.   Right now I am open to different possibilities.

As for more practical matters, I will have regular hours for colonics through the month of August. In September I will be working only two days a week. If you have unused sessions that you bought as part of a package, please call to set an appointment to use them. Unused sessions must be done by the end of September. I am very sorry that unused sessions are not refundable. If you are not able to use them and want to transfer them to a friend or family member, we could arrange that.

I will let you know when we open Juice on Main. I look forward to continuing our relationship, and hope to continue to be part of your health journey.

Healthfully yours,

Lori DeLang

Identify Foods that Making you Sick

Have you ever tried an elimination diet? It truly is the best way to figure out what foods may be problematic. If you are feeling tired or have bloating after a meal you may be one of many who are experiencing food sensitivities.
We all know the obvious...gluten, and may already eat a gluten free diet but what about the other allergens? 
The best way is to eliminate all 7 allergens for 21 days and then introduce them back in to the diet one at a time. Before starting it is really important to pay attention to how you feel. Are you tired all the time? Do you have bloating after meals? How about headaches? Sinus issues? Pants a little too tight? Once noted it is time to begin.
Okay so the 7 problematic foods are...sugar, gluten, dairy, soy, peanuts, eggs, and corn. You must be really strict for 21 days to get the best results. Then on day 22, test one food from the list and see if you have a reaction. Make note of how you feel for the next 48 hours. Not sure? Test again. Typically results are pretty clear cut. Let me know how it goes. 

I am going to do it again too so if you want to join me there is always power in numbers! Support helps so send me a message and let the elimination diet begin!

Feeling Stuffed??

Feeling stuffed after Thanksgiving?? 

If you have been eating a little too much lately or not making the best choices, now is the time to stop

Start eating health right away, not tomorrow, not Monday, not Jan 1, lol, but today!!  We all too often put it off to a later time while continuing to eat poorly.  The food we put into our mouths is so important.  This time of year sugar is a real problem.  I used to eating sugar on Halloween which would then continue to Thanksgiviing.  Then of course holiday baking would be right around the corner.  By New Years I would have gained 10 to 15 pounds.  It would take me until the summer to lose it and for a few months would look and feel great.  I no longer do that to myself.  Getting sugar out of your system is the key.  Make the choice to not eat sugar, white flour, unhealthy starches.   Feeling good is the best gift you can give yourself this holiday season. 

Take good care of will not regret it!!

The Healthiest Time of Year?

Hard to believe it is soon to be Thanksgiving.   I was watching the news this morning and they were showing people camped out at Best Buy for Black Friday.   My thoughts are not on holiday shopping yet. I know that is bad but I can't get there quite yet.   Instead I am thinking of health options for the holidays!  Trying to eat healthy and not let it all go to the wayside.  My goal this year is to continue on a healthy path right through the holidays.  Anyone care to join me?  Let's encourage one another to eat healthy, exercise and enjoy ourselves while feeling great!!  Who's in???

Healthy clothing or not?

I have been looking around on the internet for information about fabrics and the hidden dangers in our clothing. I think this one sums it up quite nicely. If you don't think much about what you are wearing...think again. I often wonder why we don't just go back to basics...cotton, wool, and all natural fabrics.  The world would be a much better and healthier place :)!

What are Digestive Enzymes?

What are digestive enzymes and why are they important?  Wilkepedia defines them as:

"Digestive enzymes are enzymes that break down polymeric macromolecules into their smaller building blocks, in order to facilitate their absorption by the body. Digestive enzymes are found in the digestive tract of animals (including humans) where they aid in the digestion of food as well as inside the cells, especially in their lysosomes where they function to maintain cellular survival. Digestive enzymes are diverse and are found in the saliva secreted by the salivary glands, in the stomach secreted by cells lining the stomach, in the pancreatic juicesecreted by pancreatic exocrine cells, and in the intestinal (small and large) secretions, or as part of the lining of the gastrointestinal tract. "

In layman's terms they help to break down your food which makes them very important for your overall health.  Raw foods are loaded with enzymes while cooked foods are not.  It is very important  to try to eat with a high percentage of raw foods.  It will improve overall digestion and general health.  You will feel more energetic as well.  It is very important to supplement with a good digestive enzyme if you do not have a lot of raw vegetables in your current diet.  Try adding them.  I always tell clients to eat something raw with every meal.  Even if you don't have time to make a salad.  Cut up some cucumbers, carrots or celery to munch on with your lunch.  I'd be interested to hear how  many are eating a primarily raw food diet.  Let's all try to add more raw food to our diets!!
