Nibbles & Naughties (August 2014)


I told her “If its green it’s clean” I am not sure if she understood.

We were talking about bowels; again, I seem to spend so much of my time talking about bowels. She wanted to look at detoxing and had brought all these tablets in and had spent a lot of money.

“I want to detox,” she said “though I have spent all this money on this detox and I am still not feeling any better.”

I was not surprised. Any detox that came in a tablet form appeared to be to be a money making scam to me.

“I can get my money back.” She continued. “As it has a 30 day money back guarantee”

I recommended she got her money back. That was when we started talking about the Green.

I suggested smoothies and juices for brekkie, though she said she could not easily do that.

“The smoothies and meal replacements are making me feel sick” She told me.

I said “Well, they are usually laced with aspartame which is a neurotoxin, it is not surprising, as they kill brain cells within one hour of consumption.”

I told her about spirulina and chlorella. “These are super foods, that contain all your amino acids, plus they are very high in nutrients. African tribes have been living of spirulina for years.”

“The added bonus,” I continued, “is that chlorella will start to eliminate the heavy metals from your system.”

She was keen to find out more.

“Start with a small dose of chlorella, maybe 1/8th to ¼ of a tsp and day and slowly build up.” I said. “If you start to get headaches, then drop the dose, you are detoxing too fast.”

“Do you know what they put in pills?” I asked

“No” She said.

I picked up her pills and started reading, “Well your pills have silicon dioxide in them, they probably have bulking agents, binding agents and filling agents, like Ytterbium. These are heavy compounds as well.”

I pointed to my superherb powders.

“I would recommend detoxing with supergreens.” I told her. “Take a level teaspoon every day. These are a combination of organic barley grass, spirulina and chlorella. No added ingredients. Just plant powders, after all if it green it is clean. It will clean the gut, the liver and the blood all in one go.”

Great. Another satisfied customer.
