How Do I Ensure I Become Better Every Day? Follow this Simple Rule…

Rule: Read or listen to people who have been there and done it for 30 minutes a day.

I’m going to keep this simple. You need to read or listen to the right content every day if you want to become the best version of yourself. You can’t possibly learn without this practice. Continue to read on if your interested in what I’ve read and listened to help me get better on a daily basis.

People often ask me about what can they do to get into a routine that will help them become calmer, happier and/or more productive.

Reading or listening covers all of these bases.

Audible changed the scene, get a free 30 day trial here. It’s worth it.

Or buy the hard copy (links below) and begin your journey as soon as it arrives. I personally found that the 20 min drive to work was the perfect time of day to start my learning – so I listen through audible or podcasts.

Rather than listening to the general garbage on the radio you can fill your ears with insight, inspiration and knowledge. It’s a no-brainer as far as I’m concerned.

Book 1: The End to Upside Down Thinking

This is a bit of a ‘far out’ read but gave me the understanding that our limitations and understanding of whats possible is not restricted to the boundaries we’ve been led to believe. We can create the right environment around us if we harness the power of our minds with the positive intention to do something good.

Book 2: The Chimp Paradox

This is a bit more ‘normal’ but a powerful self-help book that had a great effect on me. Understand the two parts (or three depending on how you look at it) of your brain. How to control the ‘monkey’ part of it and give you a powerful sense of control in our mad world.

Book 3: Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway

This book is about understanding what fear is, why we experience it and how fear holds us back from making good decisions for ourselves.

Book 4: The Power of Now

This book is a must-read. For anyone. In any situation. Ekhart Tolle is a genius.

Book 5: Get Things Done

This is what it says on the tin. Want to be more productive? Read this.

There is plenty there to get stuck into, if you want more information or advice on podcasts and music to help your brain please ask and ill find out in what context you mean and can advice accordingly.

Have a great day

Do You Have A Nutritional Deficiency?

How do we find out if we have a nutritional deficiency?

A complete blood profile test can be done by your doctor. It will asses your overall blood and cellular health as well as your risk of disease. But, as most of you roll your eyes at the thought of having another thing to add to the list of things to do, I do have an alternative suggestion…

(You’re welcome to get in touch if you do want to get blood tests, I have a comprehensive list that you can ask your doctor to do for you – if your interested)

The reality is; dietary deficiencies are very common so the chances are…yes, you’ve got one! (No matter how good you think your diet is)

This is a problem because when you’re deficient in key nutrients, your physiology doesn’t work properly. And when your physiology doesn’t work as it should, you feel low on energy. How can you expect to smash a workout, go for a run or complete a great day at work if you don’t feel energized?

Here’s some stats…

deficiencies

I’d like to point out that I believe that RDA is a particularly underwhelming estimation for what’s needed to maintain a “healthy individual”. Nevertheless, it’s a start….

What are the common nutritional ‘red flags’ to look out for?

  • water (low-level dehydration)
  • vitamins and minerals (much lower levels in non-organic fruits and veg)
  • protein (particularly in women/men with low appetites)
  • essential fatty acids (95% of the population is deficient!)

That’s the power of removing nutrient deficiencies. When our bodies don’t have the nutrients they need to carry out their daily functions, we all suffer. But as soon as we get these nutrients, we begin to thrive.

GOOD NEWS IS…You can practically remove the chances of having a nutritional deficiency in an easy, natural way; super green powders.

plantforcegreens

I use Third Wave Nutrition’s ‘Plantforce Greens’ blend, it has no artificial ingredients or additives and it is 100% organic. Packed full of green leafy vegetables, plants, grasses and algae’s it provides you with a wide spectrum of phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals essential for all you’re daily bodily functions.

I don’t gain anything by referring people to this company other than the knowledge you’re getting a perfect product for its use.

Furthermore, you can use code ‘Mojo’ at checkout for 20% off your basket!

Of course, many of you may ignore this advice (to buy a short-cut to nutritional efficiency) as it wasn’t even in your paradigm for a health conscious decision to make, and will continue to hope that your covering your bases through your diet – especially as the ‘short-cut’ costs yet more money. I totally understand and I’ve had the same conversation in my own head many times before.

The most frequent truth I encounter as a personal trainer is that the basics are often the hardest things to put into place. This is why I recommend this, it’s a short-cut, it’s natural, it’s real-food based and there are absolutely no side-effects, issues with production or chemicals.

We can all improve areas of our diet. If you feel like this would be a good addition to a smoothie or juice in the morning..great! Do it! If this sounds a bit outlandish and impossible to introduce, I get it.

The idea of this post is to share, learn, understand, apply new ideas how you see fit and get on with your life. I’m just grateful your even taking an interest in your health.

Thanks for reading and if you think it was a helpful piece, please give it a share with someone who you know might gain some benefit from reading it too.

Merry Chritsmas and Happy New Year, Patrick

 

 

The Highlights – ‘The 5 Ways of Wellbeing’

I’ve been on a journey since I was a skinny teenager at 17 years old working on a gym floor cleaning machines, giving inductions and helping to sell products (an old-fashioned gym instructor).

It’s 2019, I’m a Personal Trainer in North London with over 12 years industry experience and 9 years running my own PT business, MoJo Wellbeing Ltd.

The longer I’ve been in the job the less motivated I’ve been in being a glorified exercise babysitter. My motivation has been to become the best ‘functional health coach’ I can be. This is someone who helps people change their lives for the long-term. That person should spend their later years thriving, free of disease and chronic inflammation. Looking good while you’re doing it is just the bonus you get while you’re at it.

In order for this to happen, you need to have 5 key ‘ways’ in place in your daily routine. I’ve outlined these for you below. This is level 1, so if you’re already a level up I can set you up with the next steps you need to take. Let’s open a discussion about it..

WAY 1

Exercise

You need to have a basic level of activity for a minimum of 30 minutes a day.

The combination of increases in a sedentary lifestyle (for most) and constant food availability has had a huge effect on ancient metabolic processes that govern our bodies. This has led to a huge outbreak of type 2 diabetes and obesity led by excessive storage of energy as fat and increasing insulin resistance. Being active for 30 minutes a day, even if broken up into six 5 minutes intervals can help slow the negative effects of that.

For most of you that will mean walking up the escalators in the tube station rather than standing still, or taking the stairs instead of the lift at work…what I’m getting at is; you have to find every opportunity to move possible throughout the day. Just the stairs and escalator tips won’t be even close enough.

You must find ways of getting on your feet regularly around the office or work space, arrange special meetings and/or set a recurring alarm on your phone. You can monitor this on your phone easily with health apps. Take pictures and send them to your accountability partner (way 5).

Way 2

Nutrition

A vegan/plant-based diet that’s got adequate plant protein and keeps you healthy is not as hard as some people think. I’ve managed it for over 19 months. I keep a low body fat percentage, I’m stronger and I’ve not yet been sick or injured.

In a randomized trial by the journal of Nutrition & diabetes this year they found that, ‘plant protein intake significantly decreased fat mass, improved insulin resistance markers and improved body composition in overweight individuals in comparison to the control diet group’ (1). Furthemore, there are countless studies not only showing the benefits on fat mass but also of a vegan/plant-based diet in reducing the chances of almost every chronic health problem.

Yet, people care more about what they need to eat to help them stay fit, healthy and lean. That’s why I’ve built a plant protein list and what foods are best to combine them with for my clients.

Way 3

Hydration

The importance of hydration has been a big topic in helping my clients achieve results for years. In 2015, a study by researchers at Loughborough University found that, ‘that mild hypohydration, produced a significant increase in minor driving errors…the magnitude of decrement reported, was similar to that observed following the ingestion of an alcoholic beverage’ (2).

To put it simply – mild dehydration can have a big effect on your ability to exercise, on the functionality of your brain, on your ability to remember, on your pain threshold and on your basic motor skill function. Getting the right amount for you is vital for wellbeing and there are considerations to take into account like body size, activity level and gender.

Here’s a calculation to get a rough idea of how much you should be drinking.

Drink half an ounce for every one pound of bodyweight.

If you need help doing this please get in touch and I’ll help you calculate yours.

Way 4

Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep has become ‘the hack’ for successful, wealthy individuals who are concerned with their optimum health in the fast-paced western working world. Yet, this rule applies more importantly to the unemployed, mentally unwell, public sector worker’s and children. The research is flooding out stating it could have a significant effect on health issues ranging from age related diseases (dementia and Parkinson’s) to mental health (anxiety, depression and ADHD.

Let’s understand one thing first, getting below 7 hours or above 8 hours for the majority of the population is going to hinder you rather than help you. Research conducted in Korea found that too much or too little sleep increases the risk of depressive symptoms in people who suffer hypertension/high blood pressure (3). Furthermore, a Harvard Medical Health letter published it analysis of multiple studies which found that poor ‘sleep-hygiene’ could increase the likelihood of triggering a bi-polar episode, contribute to anxiety, disrupt the routines of people with ADHD and cause a development of depressive feelings (4).

I have a huge list tips to help maximise your sleep and a blog post for my 5 essentials for a better nights sleep. But the best first practice you can implement today is this…make your bedroom a place that is your sanctuary, you should only be doing two or three things in there; sleep, make love and maybe light reading of an actual book. No TV’s, no working or catching up with e-mail’s and definitely no eating!

Way 5

Mindset

This ‘way’ is what I’ve experienced to be the most important of them all. It’s the goal setting practices and adherence aspect to the four other ‘way’s’. How you manage your time, how you plan your day and how you prioritize your daily activities will determine whether your life with become the happier and healthier life you deserve. In essence, that is all we are striving for; happiness and health. Earning money is all about having “time” to do the things that make you happy.

That’s why I have a 3 stage process to help program your day so you can adhere to the tasks you need to achieve your goals.

  1. Accountability
  2. Sharing your goals
  3. Giving your goals a deadline.

These are the keys to your success – and by success I mean wellbeing!

What’s The Big Deal About Staying Hydrated?

What is it about hydration that has got personal trainers, yogis, health coaches and sports team managers questioning, ‘how much water do I need to drink?’

clear drinking glass filled with clear liquid and sliced of kiwi

How important is it?

Firstly, DEHYDRATIONWhat is it?

Defined as; “a harmful reduction in the amount of water in the body.”

Harmful being the key word to listen to here. As dehydration gets worse, so does the harmful effect it has on the body.

One of the first facts I learnt about dehydration was about sports performance in my A-level Physical Education (PE) studies – yes, I did PE for A-level…

A review of research conducted into dehydration in sports performance found that losing just 2% of your body weight in fluids could significantly reduce measurable aspects of performance such as endurance and mental focus.

This is because roughly 65-70% of your body is water, and the majority of that is in your blood. If your blood thickens, as it does when you get dehydrated, oxygen will be transported around the body more slowly. Therefore, the delivery of oxygen needed to contract muscles and help the brain to make decisions is delayed. Given that athletes can sweat out 6% to 10% of their body weight during competition, you can begin to understand why the importance of rehydrating/hydrating cannot be overemphasised.

Furthermore, when you are dehydrated, the body is forced to draw water from the intestines and bowels, this causes constipation. It also forces the liver to help the kidneys remove waste as they will not have enough water to do this job themseves. Normally the liver’s function is to metabolize stored fat. However, when the liver has to help the kidneys function, fat metabolism will not be completed and this contributes to fat storage.

Finally, water is a natural appetite suppressant. Cravings are often misinterpreted as food cravings, when they are really thirst cravings. If you are not drinking enough water over an extended period of time your thirst mechanism shuts down, especially as you grow older. As you increase your regular water intake this thirst signal reactivates and lets you know the difference between a water and a food craving.

Drinking more water will prove to be the simplest, least expensive, most powerful and longest lasting key to long-term fat reduction, better sports performance and optimum functioning of your organs.

GOOD LUCK!

What is the Right Diet FOR YOU!?

I’ve decideed to give a sneak peak into my first eBook – ‘What is the right diet for you!?’

Below is the first chapter; a simple analysis of what your options are going forward when choosing a diet. If you like what you see, please ‘follow’ the blog and when I release the eBook anyone already following will recieve a FREE copy as a gift for your support. Thank you and enjoy!

Chapter 1 – What are your options?

What is the most frequent question I am asked about diet?

“Patrick, what is the best diet to follow?” or “Patrick, what should I eat after our session?”

The most frustrating thing about this question is, I wish I could give you a straight answer! It would be easy to say; ‘chicken and veg/salad’ or ‘turkey burgers with sweet potato mash’. But, it is not that my decision to follow a plant-based diet is the reason behind why I can’t give you this answer; it’s far more complicated than that.

The annoying but truthful answer to this is…

THERE IS NO ‘ONE-SIZE FITS ALL’ APPROACH.

Unfortunately this answer is also the most frustrating for my client’s to hear.

I can hear you saying it in your head right now; “Surely there is one diet that is better than most…can’t you just tell me what that one is? I haven’t got time to research and read everything and you seem to know what you’re talking about!”

Here’s why I can’t give you a concrete, or a pre-written, diet plan that has been shipped out on a mass-scale. It will not account for the diversity of the people that are following it. You need to think about your diet with a broader perspective. You’ve heard too much mumbo jumbo and your head may be in a bit of a muddle.

Think about this:

  1. Would a diet that works for “all” take into account a persons body type/shape?
  2. Would it take into account how affluent you are (budget)?
  3. Would it take into account the amount of time you have?
  4. Would it suit people from different cultures?
  5. Would it (you see where I’m going with this) take into account someone’s age?
  6. Would it take into account someone’s ethical beliefs?
  7. Would it take into account someone’s gender?
  8. Would it take into account previous experience of undertaking diets?
  9. Would it take into account the cooking facilities available to them?
  10. Would it take into account the size of their fridge/freezer?

This list goes on, and on, and on. I’m not even going to get into the discussion about whether that person in question lives close to a health food shop or farmers market…

To make matters more confusing are, your options for ‘diets’ are ENDLESS.

Paleo, vegan (my choice), vegetarian, atkins, intermittent fasting, 24hour fasting, 5-2 fasting, low-fat, high-carb, regular small meals, irregular big meals, gluten-free, dairy free, macro’s measured, juice cleanses and that list goes on and on…

Now you can see the issue I have with just giving an ‘off-the-cuff’ answer to the simple question I’m asked now, right?

I’m going to use myself as a good example as to why you cannot discount or support any one approach.

I’ve followed low-carb – seen results, intermittent fasting – seen results, high-carb – seen results, dairy-free – seen result’s. Just because it worked for me, and my particular set of circumstances, at that age, with the time I had, doesn’t mean I can ‘cookie cut’ that approach and just give it and say, “use that”. That would be ridiculous, wouldn’t it?

FURTHERMORE, THAT WOULD NOT MAKE ME A RESPONSIBLE COACH EITHER!

The pro’s reading this are saying right now, “Patrick, you’re making this difficult, in order to lose weight you need to exercise more and eat less – it’s pretty simple!”

SIGH….

Well actually diets are actually very similar to other aspects of life; you may succeed in the short-term, but actual success long-term is where everyone falls down.

In order to succeed we need to follow these 3 steps:

  1. Implement behaviors based on knowledge we’ve learnt through other people’s experiences.
  2. Assess whether those behaviors work for you.
  3. Adjust those behaviors to suit you until we get the result we set out to achieve.

Let me make this VERY clear, all diets follow a similar pattern; they get you to focus on what types of food you’re putting in your mouth and how much, they get you to focus on the quality of the food your eating and they get you to control your apatite through the speed at which you eat or frequency.

What I prefer is a nutritional progression model (the ‘Precision Nutrition Model’) versus asking people to “follow a diet”. Because that is what ‘real’ coaches actually do!

Key Understanding 1 –

Understand the word ‘diet’ and what it means. There is no ‘end date’ to your diet, there is no ‘Quick! Fix! Blitz!’ Your diet is carefully selected and implemented after an assessment of your circumstances related to you.

Lets explore this more in the next chapter.

5 Essential Tips for a Good Night’s Sleep

Hey Sleepy Heads!

Being a personal trainer who focuses on all aspects of your wellbeing, I’ve noticed how people in Hampstead and Highgate seem to sleep a lot less than I do!

I’ve been ‘in the ear’ to all my clients about sleep for a while so it’s only right I get ‘in the ear’ about sleep to my friends and followers digitally too! What I find quite strange is that I shouldn’t even have to be doing this; we all know sleep is vital, so why do so many people neglect it so much?

I’ve heard it all before; “I’ve got too much to do/I only need 5 hours/I’ll catch up at the weekend” to know that people actually believe that this is an option AND think they are living a healthy lifestyle. The truth is, if you don’t sleep enough, you’re more likely to be obese, you’re more likely to be diagnosed with cancer, you’re more likely to suffer from Alzheimer’s and you’re more likely to suffer cardiovascular health issues – to name just a few. What is pretty clear from the research I have done is that, you will definitely have a poorer quality of life, if you disregard your sleep quality. I want to tackle this, so I’ve put together 5 essential tips that you can act on TODAY to help you make the right decisions to get a better night’s sleep.

Let’s jump right in!

Tip 1: GET MAGNESIUM – this is the natural ‘anti-stress’ mineral (– I know right? We all need this anyway). Research has shown that diets high in magnesium result in deeper and less interrupted sleep cycles.

The best food sources of magnesium are green leafy vegetables (surprise surprise), spirulina, chlorella and 100% raw cacao. Sadly, the average person is magnesium-deficient and deficiency has been shown to increase the likelihood of insomnia. So, it is absolutely key you get this mineral in your diet. An important note to make is that organic food contains much more magnesium than large scale, ‘conventionally’ produced food, which is almost totally devoid of magnesium.

Alternatively, you can supplement magnesium easily without even having to take it orally. I use third wave nutrition (www.thirdwavenutrition.com) MAG OSTEO which includes K2, Zinc and B vitamins for added benefits. If you use the link above you will get a 20% discount on your entire order – not just the magnesium! I take it using their powder because magnesium tablets or pills draw water into your gut that can cause poor digestion and diarrhoea.

If that’s not for you, another way to supplement magnesium is to absorb it through your skin; you can get body sprays and magnesium bath salts that are both incredibly efficient at absorbing magnesium, and are a great excuse to have a bath or massage ;-). 

Tip 2: GET BLACKOUT BLINDS – clinically proven to help you get the best sleep ever! This one has been a big one for my wife and I; we’ve noticed an amazing difference when sleeping ‘blacked out’. If your skin and eyes absorb light from your window, it stimulates the body, therefore moving your sleep cycle away from the deep DELTA waves that flow in the most relaxing and regenerative sleep cycles. Instead your sleep becomes restless and disturbed.

Tip 3: GET A SLEEP ROUTINE – the body thrives on rituals and patterns. By setting a specific time to get ready for bed every day, you’re giving your body the message it needs to prepare for a good night’s sleep. If you’re up watching telly late, blue light from the screen stimulates your eyes and hormones are released to activate functions you need when awake. Poor sleep ensues, then the next night you try and ‘catch up’ on sleep by going to bed at 9:30pm. Your body has no idea what’s going on and you will lie there awake, thinking about what you need to do tomorrow rather than falling asleep peacefully today. A often hear of people waking up with an alarm set for 6:30am, and then hitting ‘snooze’ (sometimes multiple times!). This is the most stressful and ineffective way to start the day. You’ll feel more tired, more frustrated and you’ll have a poorer night’s sleep the following night.

Tip 4: GET A BEDTIME TEA – 20 minutes before getting ready for bed, make a tea proven to improve sleep quality and sleep latency.

First tip is to find a quality Reishi medicinal mushroom extract; this has been scientifically proven to decrease the time it takes to fall asleep and improve the time spent in deep sleep.

Second tip is to find a good quality Valerian root tea; a natural sedative and proven to be as effective as synthetic sleeping pills. This root can be so powerful that if you take too much, it could make you feel so well rested that you could feel overly drowsy the next morning!

Finally, the ‘grandmother’s favourite’ tip: Chamomile – not only good for helping you ease into sleep, but also for improving digestion and expelling unwanted gases from your colon. Give these tips a try – and let me (and others) know how you found them!

Tip 5: GET A HIGH PROTEIN/HIGH FAT/LOW CARB SNACK ONE HOUR BEFORE BED – It’s been a big day at work…you’ve spent the day constantly making important decisions – and tiredness has finally kicked in. The last thing you want to do is cook a big meal, so what do you do? 1) Order Deliveroo, 2) make something quick (usually a pasta dish) or 3) head straight for the ice cream in the freezer! My most valuable tip will get you out of this sticky situation…don’t bother ordering, cooking OR binging.

Stay calm and eat something low in carbs, high in fat and high in protein – you’re more likely to sleep like a baby. Low carbs reduce the likelihood of an insulin spike while sleeping and high protein and fat fuels healthy regeneration of muscle tissues, providing fuel for the functioning of your cells during restorative sleep.

MY BEST OPTIONS FOR THIS? Almonds, pumpkin seeds, cashew nuts, walnuts, sunflower seeds, hulled hemp seeds! Crack some sea salt over them (or have the ‘nut butter’ versions with some raw veggies) and I promise you, you will feel more rested, more rejuvenated and better prepared for the tasks you need to complete the next day.

So there are my 5 essential tips for a good nights sleep! Plenty of information to get your teeth into and even if you only use one of them, it could greatly change the quality of your sleep and general wellbeing. Please share with anyone who has problems sleeping or you think might benefit from this information…Thank you and see you next time.

10 reasons to Juice Beets, Carrot and Cucumber Together…

Hey curious minds!

Ok, so I keep mentioning on my social media (insta@mojowellbeing) about my favourite juice combo – beets, carrots and cucumber. I understand that people on social media wont spend longer than about 10 seconds to actually read a caption before ‘double-tapping’ and moving on…so here we are!

I’ve decided one of my first blog posts will concentrate on the amazing qualities of this juice and why people should try this specific combination. I’ve used the book ‘The Tao of health, sex and longevity’ by Daniel Reid as my source. I hope you find it useful!

Carrots (10oz), Beets (3oz) and Cucumber (3oz) is the perfect ratio; this can be up scaled easily and the ingredients can be found in almost every half decent veg shop. You should try to always use organic produce and give it a light brush under the tap before juicing.

I’m going to lay out 10 reasons why you should juice this combo specifically by naming the ailments first, describing what causes it second, and finally offering an explanation as to WHY this combination can help you.

1.Colic and Gastritis – both issues are caused by gas due to fermentation and putrefaction of poorly combined foods in the gut.

WHY? This juice blend is rich in sodium, potassium and phosphorous – which all neutralise acids, help to expel gas and promote peristalsis (the pushing of foods through our digestive tract).

2.Obesity – an excess of adipose tissue due to excessive consumption of starch, sugar and poor food combinations.

WHY? A symptom of obesity is severe acidosis in the blood, this juice blend has alkaline properties that can assist the kidneys in promoting excretion of waste.

3.Cystitis – a condition of excess acidity in the bladder due to incomplete digestion of meats and starches which cause uric acid crystals to irritate the lining of the bladder.

WHY? This juice blend neutralizes the excess uric acid that inflames the kidneys and bladder.

4.Gout – inflammation of bones and ligaments in joints, owing to formation of acid crystals. Caused mainly by too much fatty meat, salt and alcohol.

WHY? The juice has pH balancing qualities that can help to dissolve the acid crystals in the joints and ligaments.

5.Rheumatism – related to gout, but applied in the muscles rather than bones and joints. Rheumatism can be enhances by further consumption of cooked animal proteins, which cannot be digested when the system is saturated with uric acid.

WHY? This juice has pH balancing qualities that help to dissolve the acid crystals in the muscles.

6.Toxemia – ‘general’ toxicity throughout the system. This condition is due to a huge accumulation of toxic waste in the intestines characterised by, chronic fatigue, depression, skin eruptions, body odour, bad breath and poor digestion.

WHY? This combination of veggies when juiced cleanses the bowels and builds stronger blood plasma.

7.Headaches – most are caused by excess pressure in the tiny capillaries that feed the brain; this pressure is caused by the impurities in the bloodstream, which not only block the tiny capillaries but also deprive the brain of glucose and oxygen.

WHY? Improvements in the ability of the kidneys to cleanse the blood of the impurities that often cause headaches are observed with this juice. It also contributes to increasing haemoglobin levels in blood that enhances oxygen supplies to the brain.

8.Heart Disease – the clogging of blood vessels that deprive the heart, muscles and valves of oxygen. The excessive strain on the pump leads to heart exhaustion and disease, the primary source of this ‘clogging’ is a diet composed of denatured and cooked foods.

WHY? This juice is the most potent blend of juices for potassium, which quickly restores blood pH and helps remove deposits for blood vessels and builds blood haemoglobin levels.

9.Hypertension – an irritation of various nerves centres in the body, this is owing to nutritional deficiency, retention of toxic wastes and a lack of organic alkaline elements.

WHY? Beet, carrot and cucumber juice helps to eliminate excess acidity and provides essential organic minerals and enzymes which enhance the nervous system functions.

10.Impotence – a condition of male sexual dysfunction, contributing factors are nervous exhaustion, depletion of sexual glands, insufficient nutrition for the reproductive organs and excess toxicity in the blood.

WHY? Clean the urogenital canal, bladder, prostate, suprarenal glands and other parts directly affected by excess acid toxicity with beet, carrot and cucumber juice. Furthermore, it provides vital nutrients for the repair and maintenance of those parts.

I hope you found this helpful, please leave a comment or review and share with anyone who you might think will benefit from reading this article. I will continue to try and provide help to people who suffer from these (and other) issues with the best natural remedies. Thanks for listening and hope to see you soon
