ARBONNE FIT The path to a healthier, wealthier you. ARBONNE Fit The Bioidentical Hormone Handbook puts you on the path to health and fitness as Dr. Deanna Osborn shows you the vital interplay between hormone balance, detoxing, exercise, and nutrition, and as the foundation for life-long good health. www.thehormonehandbook.com 30 Days to Fit Intro Uncontrollable Eating? • • • Is it just a lack of willpower? According to David Kessler, former commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, over-eating maybe more insidious - the combination of fats, sugars and salt used by food manufactures to trigger a ‘bliss’ point in the human brain. For millions of us, the real problem is modern food is impossible to resist. Kessler - who is professor of paediatrics, epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of California – says it all comes down to the bliss point, foods that change brain chemistry. Instead of satisfying hunger, the salt-fat-sugar combination will stimulate that diner's brain to crave more, Kessler said. For many, the come-on offered by Lay's Potato Chips -- "Betcha can't eat just one" -- is scientifically accurate. And the food industry manipulates this neurological response, designing foods to induce people to eat more than they should or even want, Kessler found. – Washington Post Monday, April 27, 2009 Forks Over Knives Chef Pam Leveritt Chef Pam walks her clients through a 4-step process • • • • Session 1 – Pantry Check & Kitchen Organization: Take all pantry items out and together, Chef Pam will advise you to remove food products that are prepackaged, contain harmful preservatives, dyes, colorings, sugars, starches and gluten — anything that is unnatural. Chef Pam also evaluates kitchen organization to allow a new to provide a better environment for upcoming changes. (approximately 1-2 hours) Session 2 – Grocery Shopping Field Trip: Chef Pam takes you through the aisles of the grocery store, discussing your current habits and teaching you how to shop around the perimeter of the store, where the freshest foods are. Chef Pam educates you about products and read labels to recognize what ingredients to avoid. (approximately 1 hour) Session 3- Healthy Cooking Techniques: Chef Pam visits your home to go over basic cooking techniques to get you started with your new food purchases. She will also talk about menu planning and converting your favorite recipes to more healthy versions by substituting appropriate ingredients (approx 1-2 hours) Session 4 – Equipment and Specialty Stores: Chef Pam takes you to specialty stores for kitchen equipment, knife sharpening, and local foods such as farmers markets and local CSA farms. The destination during this time together is dependent upon where the need is to meet your goal. (approximately 1 hour) 30 Days to Fit: SAD to Fit • Bridges the gap between S.A.D. and FIT: • Only ONE meal per day, 2 shakes/or bars. • Detox from processed-junk-fast foods, artificial sweeteners, HFCS, transfats, alcohol, sugar, carbs, and clean the blood from toxins with 7 Day Cleanse. • No cravings, not hungry, full of energy, not stressed and losing weight at 1250 calories a day. 30 Days to Fit: Detox Food Allergies Dr. Hyman, “food allergies cause inflammation and make us gain and hold weight.” Top 6 offending foods: Gluten, Dairy (milk, butter, yogurt, cheese), Yeast (baked goods, bread, beer, wine, cheese, vinegar, and on surface of many fruits), Eggs, Corn and Peanuts. Vegan Protein Only protein satisfies hunger. Dr. Perricone says every meal without protein ages us. Dr. Barbara Beaty says it is very difficult to find a protein as good as Arbonne’s vegan fructose free, without artificial sweeteners, soy leciithin and carrageenan...PLUS they are NON GMO... Arbonne’s tasteless Fiber provides critical fiber simply in two scoops a day (important when detoxing). Fizz sticks boost energy, make the body alkaline and are loaded with vitamins. Why Is Protein Important? Protein is essential for growth and repair and makes up about 15% of the mass of the average person. Much of the human body is constructed from protein molecules, which play a crucial role in virtually all of the body’s biological processes. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Some of these amino acids are produced naturally by the body; however nine amino acids are essential, meaning that the body does not make them and has to consume these amino acids from animal- or plant-food sources. Arbonne Fit: Vegan Protein Most vegetable proteins are incomplete proteins and only offer a few essential amino acids, while animal proteins offer all essential amino acids and are considered complete proteins. Arbonne Essentials Protein offers a 100% amino acid score, supplying all essential amino acids from vegetable sources, satisfying nutritional needs for omnivores, vegetarians and vegans alike. The Arbonne Essentials Protein blend provides 20 grams of protein from three different sources: pea, cranberry and rice proteins. ArbonneEssentials Protein is soy-, lactose- (whey), and gluten-free. How Much Protein Is Enough? An average, a healthy adult needs 1 gram of protein per 2.2 lbs of body weight per day (roughly half your body weight). For example, a 150 lb adult would need 70 grams per day divided between meals for basic nutrition. Each serving of Arbonne Essentials Protein is 20 grams of protein (2 scoops), nearly one meal’s worth. You can use the Arbonne Essentials Protein to lose, gain, or maintain weight. Arbonne Fit: Weight Loss Arbonne's 30 Days to Fit program, is designed primarily for weight loss by implementing nutritious meal replacements with Protein Shakes for 2 out of 3 meals each day for 30 days. One bag of Arbonne Essentials Protein contains 30 servings. Two bags will last 30 days at 2 shakes a day for meal replacements. Add Arbonne Fit Essentials Fiber Boost to increase your daily fiber intake and assist your liver in detoxing as your body reduces. Exercise and Muscle Lack of exercise is tied to worldwide killers such as heart disease, diabetes and breast and colon cancer. If just a quarter of inactive adults got enough exercise, more than 1.3 million deaths could be prevented worldwide annually, researchers said. Half an hour of brisk walking five times a week would do the trick. Protein consumed within an hour after working out will provide amino acids for the building and repair of muscle tissue. www.thehormonehandbook.com Tara Johnson, Physical Trainer Healthy Shakes for Children Children can also benefit from Arbonne Essentials Protein, particularly when included in smoothies made with whole foods like: • • • • • spinach kale berries avocado banana For a 30 lb child, the recommended serving would be approximately 5 grams or a half scoop of Protein Powder. Arbonne Uses NO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS Arbonne’s Protein Powders are naturally sweetened with cane sugar and stevia, a natural herb with no side effects. However, many comparable products on the market save calories in their protein shakes by using artificial sweeteners, a popular solution for anyone counting calories to lose or maintain weight. But ironically, mounting evidence shows that artificial sweeteners, besides having many serious side effects: – may actually contribute to weight gain – increasing food cravings – instruct your body to store fat3 Arbonne Uses NO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS According to Dr. Mark Hyman, “…Artificial sweeteners disrupt the normal hormonal and neurological signals that control hunger and satiety (feeling full). Alarmingly, Dr. Hyman references a study that found: “rats offered the choice of cocaine or artificial sweeteners always picked the artificial sweetener, even if the rats were previously programmed to be cocaine addicts.” Replace Expensive Energy Drinks and Soda Arbonne’s Energy Fizz Sticks are free of artificial sweeteners, offering an alternative to energy drinks and diet sodas. Arbonne Energy Fizz Sticks make the body alkaline (opposite of acidic) reducing your risk of heart disease, arthritis, cancer, diabetes and other disease and they are rich in brain and heart boosting Vitamin Bs. Additionally, Arbonne Energy Fizz Sticks provide antioxidants and B vitamins for a healthful pickme-up. Popular energy drinks cost between $1.99-$6.99 per serving, while Energy Fizz Sticks can cost as little as $1.04. The 8 Steps to Health A number of factors contribute to the deterioration of the body-nutritional deficiencies are right at the top of the list…the food we eat is responsible for taking us up or taking us down. It is truly that simple. Somer’s 8 steps to wellness begins: 1. Imbalances of hormones accelerate aging; 2. Toxins and poor quality food accelerate the aging process at a cellular level. Balancing Estrogens & Progesterone Indicators of Hormone Imbalance: Irritability, Fatigue, PMS, Hair Loss, Depression, Disturbed Sleep, Mood Swings, Endometriosis, Infertility, Night Sweats, Weight Gain, Dry Skin, Low libido, Fibromyalgia, Unexplained Weight Gain, Heart disease, Osteoporosis, Fluid Retention, Irregular Periods, Migraines, Vaginal Dryness, Hot Flashes, Thyroid Dysfunction, Anxiety, Heavy or Painful Periods, Prostrate Problems…. Hormone Imbalance How do hormones become imbalanced? • Stress: Go, go, go – body perceives crisis and no ovulation – no progesterone. • RX’s: Birth control pills, HRT, cause imbalance • Diet: Animals are fed estrogen – growth hormone – can pass to consumer. Sugar & refined starches act as false estrogens. • Environment: Pesticides, herbicides, household cleaners, petroleum based personal care products contribute to hormone imbalance. Arbonne Fit: Detoxing Vital to the anti-aging regimen is cleansing the body from heavy metals and other cellular waste, while fiber cleanses the gut. Arbonne personal products don’t add toxins. Products are formulated without: animal products or animal by-products, parabens, formaldehyde-donating preservatives And the following petroleumbased ingredients: •benzene •mineral oil •petrolatum •phthalates •toluene •PABA Weight Loss and Toxicity If you have a difficult time ridding yourself of toxins you may have a difficult time losing weight. Excess body fat is synonymous with liver disorders. Research from the University of Occupational and Environmental Health in Kitakyshu, Japan, indicated that obesity is more closely related to liver dysfunction than to any other abnormality. A 15 week study by Laval University in Quebec discovered that environmental pollutants increased in the blood by as much as 23% during weight loss. Fiber for Detoxing Daily fiber in your diet not only improves bowel motion and reestablishes normal bowel function and strengthens adrenal function. As the body’s responses become more efficient, your liver often begins to detoxify more rapidly. This means that more toxic constituents are contained in the bile that is secreted by your liver and emptied into your intestinal tract for elimination. Fiber prevents bile from becoming toxic in your large intestine by binding with it and moving it along the digestive tract. In this way, fiber helps eliminate fat-soluable toxins from your body. Without sufficient fiber present, these poisons may be released from the bile and reabsorbed through your intestines. – James L. Wilson, N.D., D.C., Ph.D., Adrenal Fatigue, Smart Publications, Petaluma, CA, 2007, p. 203. LIVE-R is the Largest Internal Detoxifying Organ The LIVER filters out toxins and chemically converts them so they may be eliminated safely. If your LIVER takes in more toxins than it can eliminate, it malfunctions causing a variety of symptoms. External Signs of Sluggish Liver • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Coated tongue Bad breath Flushed facial appearance Excessive facial blood vessels Acne Psoriasis Eczema Oily skin Rosacea Yellow conjunctiva (eyes) Red swollen itchy eyes Dark circles under the eyes Brownish spots and blemishes (liver spots) Rashes and itchy skin Inability to lose weight Digestive Problems are Signs of a Overburdened Liver • • • • • • • • • • Gall stones and gall bladder disease Intolerance to fatty foods Intolerance to alcohol Indigestion Reflux Nausea Abdominal bloating Constipation Irritable bowel syndrome Hemorrhoids Emotional and Neurological Signs of Toxicity • • • • Depression Mood changes, anger and irritability Poor concentration and "foggy brain“ Recurrent headaches with nausea Toxicity, Immune Dysfunction • • • • • • • • • • • Allergies Sinus Hay fever Asthma Dermatitis Hives Fibromyalgia Chronic Fatigue Chemical and food sensitivities Auto-immune diseases Recurrent infections Arbonne Fit: Skincare Regimens Internally hormone balance, de-toxing and de-stressing products work with protein and fiber support, nutritional supplements to counter the effects of accelerated aging feed the body internally via nutritionally rich supplements and protein powders. Externally antioxidant and mineral support is then applied onto the skin for deep absorption via nanotechnology in the RE9 system for restoring aged skin; and via fresh cell technology in the FC5 system for pausing the aging process in more youthful skin. Both technologies deliver antioxidant and mineral support directly to the skin penetrating deeply enough to reach into the whole body. Inflammation-Aging Connection Theory A growing number of researchers are reporting that the inflammationaging connection is the single greatest cause of aging and agerelated diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, certain forms of cancer, diminished mental and physical energy, the loss of muscle mass and wrinkled, sagging skin. The presence of inflammation produced by lifestyle factors, like eating a pro-inflammatory diet (i.e., high glycemic carbohydrates); stress; weakened immune system and hormonal changes along with environmental stressors, like excess exposure to ultraviolet light (UVA & UVB) can result in accelerated aging. A steady regimen of anti-oxidants both on the body and inside the body, coupled with lifestyle changes that include an antioxidant rich diet and moderate exercise is an excellent way to do our part to prevent and protect ourselves from accelerated aging. Arbonne incorporates antioxidents in their topical and internal product formulas from nutritional supplements, RE9 REsist, Heart Formula, Hybrids, and skincare, RE9 Nutrimin C, to cosmetic colors. What are Free Radicals? Free radicals are cellular renegades; they wreak havoc by damaging DNA, altering biochemical compounds, corroding cell membranes and killing cells outright. Such molecular mayhem, scientists increasingly believe, plays a major role in the development of ailments like cancer, heart or lung disease and cataracts. Many researchers are convinced that the cumulative effects of free radicals also underlie the gradual deterioration that is the hallmark of aging in all individuals, healthy as well as sick.— TIME, April 6, 1992 What are Antioxidants? “A family of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients – compounds produced by the body that occur naturally in many foods. Antioxidants work together in the body to maintain our health and vigor well into the late decades of life. They do this by protecting us from damage caused by free radicals…Scientists now believe that free radicals are causal factors in nearly every known disease…In fact, free radicals are a major culprit in the aging process itself…By controlling free radicals, antioxidants can make the difference between life and death, as well as influence how fast and how well we age…There is overwhelming scientific evidence demonstrating that those who eat a diet rich in antioxidants and take antioxidant supplements will live longer, healthier lives…” p. 8. “Antioxidant Network” Lone antioxidants are not enough to do the job. There is a dynamic interplay between five key antioxidants work to strengthen us and protect us from disease: Vitamins C & E, glutathione, lipoic acid and Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Vitamins C & E are not made in the body and must be supplemented. Glutathione, lipoic acid and CoQ10 are made in the body, but decline as we age. All must be supplemented. Arbonne’s Collagen Support contains vitamins A, C, E. Bilberry fruit extract, quercetin, alpha lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10, vitamins A, C, D and E. Wrinkles as Wounds? …Injury to the skin requires adequate body levels of specific vitamins, minerals, and protein. Vitamin B5 and C, copper, zinc, magnesium, and manganese are the principle nutrients needed to repair any type of tissue damage, from serious wounds to unwanted wrinkles. Also Omega 3 studies show essential fatty acids assist in wound healing, make one less susceptible to infections, face and body hydrate better. Lack of essential fatty acids can cause sterility in men, miscarriages, arthritis like problems, and some heart and circulatory problems. The Perricone Prescription p. 61, 154. Skincare & Vitamin C RE9 is a combination of creams and serums, contains a stable form of Vitamin C, is readily absorbed by the skin and promotes production of collagen and elastin. “Recent studies suggest that Vitamin C applied externally to the skin may do what was once considered impossible: stimulate the growth of new collagen.” Topically applied Vitamin C improves blood supply to the skin, giving the skin a more youthful glow…serums are stronger than the creams and are therefore more effective…for added antioxidant boost…the best protection is a combination of creams and serums applied externally and or tablets taken orally.” The Antioxidant Miracle p. 201-03 FC5 Arbonne has encapsulated fruit cells full of active antioxidant and supportive mineral, flavinoid and carotenoid properties - never exposed to the air - or oxidation - until released upon the skin by you. Fruits can withstand hours in the sun because of their cell’s phytonutrients. These same phytonutients respond perfectly to the skins needs and are biocompatible: the skin recognizes these rich and natural fruit nutrients and absorbs them into the skin, your circulatory systems and throughout your body. Problem Skin • Despite Medicine’s denial, a high gylcemic (sugars), bad fats (Omega 6 not enough Omega 3s) diet is casual to poor skin also hormones imbalance and toxicity play a large role in acne, according to Dr Cordain. • Accutane and birth control have harmful side effects. However, the side effects of an anti-acne diet reduces your risk for heart disease, high blood cholesterol, hypertension, type-2 diabetes, cancer – autoimmune disorders that afflict almost 70% of all adults. Also an alkaline diet will allow calcium to be better absorbed. • Using Clear Advantage along with the detoxing line, fiber and nutritional supplements is recommended. Clear Advantage Beautiful Skin 1% Salicylic acid for topical use and in the supplement penetrates the skin so the benefits work above and below the skin’s surface, allowing treatment deep down. Other ingredients include: Alfalfa, dandelion leaf, licorice root, peppermint, orange peel, mallow flower, wild pansy, hops extract, vitamins A, C and E Special Acne Spot Treatment with 2% salicylic acid.
