When looking at nutrition labels these are the ingredients that are most important to avoid.
#1 Trans Fat: partially hydrogenated oil; American’s ingest an average of 5.8g of trans fat daily, this translates to 2,117g (almost 5 pounds) per year
#2 High Fructose Corn Syrup: inexpensive sugar substitute made from yellow dent corn that causes belly fat, insulin resistance and a whole host of indirect health problems
#3 Artificial Sweeteners: although these are approved by the FDA they are not without safety risks and best avoided
#4 Sodium: we consume an average of 3,435mg of sodium a day. To keep your blood sugar in check, limit your daily sodium intake to 1,500mg or less
#5 Food Additives:
Artificial Dyes: most artificial dyes are linked to hyperactivity, ADD, and ADHD
Artificial Flavours: blanket term that could include one or hundreds of unnatural additives
Preservatives and Emulsifiers: not all are dangerous but some are known to cause liver and kidney problem, inflammation and cancer.

Lisa's expertise and experience in holistic care is second to none. I had come down with pneumonia and I was going on 3 weeks before I set aside the standard antibiotics and tried Lisa's holistic remedies. It was like night and day, I felt better in a matter of 24 hours. Lisa even taught me how to make my own homemade inhaler which helped relieve my aching chest cavity and lungs. I can't recommend Lisa enough, my only regret is not seeking her help sooner, lesson learned! Thanks Lisa :)
