This Drink Destroys Your Bones But Everyone Drinks It

sore-bones

 

People eat and drink unhealthy things all the time. Some people are aware of the consequences, while others are not. Some know the consequences of these foods, but just don’t give a damn. This article isn’t about food, though. It is about a common drink that millions of people consume every day.

 

Roughly 25% of all drinks sold in America are soft drinks. Even though soda sales took a dive in recent years, about one-third of Americans drink soda or other sugary drinks. Since these drinks are typically marketed to people who are 18-24, it doesn’t set them up for a healthy future. Drinking soda can increase a person’s risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.

 

The sugar content in a 12oz can of soda is roughly eight teaspoons. Most companies don’t use real sugar and use high fructose corn syrup instead. The sugar content scares some people away and they turn to diet sodas, which are actually worse. Diet sodas or juices contain artificial sweeteners, which are typically 300 times sweeter than regular sugar.

 

Soda And Your Bones:

A lot of sodas contain caffeine and phosphoric acid. If you have too much phosphorus in your system, your body can’t properly absorb calcium. Additionally, the phosphoric acid in soda may cause calcium to leak out of your bones.

 

A study was conducted with 1,413 women and 1,125 men to see what the bone mineral density (BMD) was after regular consumption of soda. The results showed that soda reduced bone density, especially the BMD in the hips of females because that area is more susceptible to bone loss. This means that you should try to avoid soda because it may increase your risk of osteoporosis or diseases that inhibit calcium absorption, for example, Crohn’s disease.

 

Liver Damage:

Outside of drinking alcohol, soda is one of the worst things for your liver. Continuous consumption of soda can increase your risk of cirrhosis.

 

Kidney Stones & Disease:

Remember that phosphoric acid content in soda we mentioned earlier? Well, it can affect the urinary tract and the health of your kidneys. If you drink a 12oz can of soda every day, you can increase your risk of developing kidney stones by 15%.

 

Tooth Decay:

Because soda has so much sugar, your oral health is at risk every time you drink soda. Damaging tooth enamel, the acid and chemicals in soda can be worse for your teeth than candy.

 

What To Drink Instead?

It can be hard to train your palate to not crave soda. Some people are addicted to it! It is important to have other options to replace the soda. Drinking detox waters can help you rid your diet of soda, or various herbal teas can also be beneficial. If you make a large batch of herbal tea, you can store it in the fridge and have iced tea for days.

    Q: I have a question regarding Bad Breath. I have tried everything, baking soda, rinsing with peroxide, Dr. Katz products, changing toothpaste, breath mints, everything you could think of. I don't think it has anything to do with my hygiene I think I have a health problem that my doctors have not been able to find. I really want to know how to get rid of it. My self esteem is affected by it and I am a business owner and the last thing I want to do is have my clients think that I don't brush my teeth. I brush them several times a day and I even carry my toothbrush with me sometimes.

    A:

    Bad breath starts in the colon! Read the article "SKUNK BREATH (Halitosis)" on our site in the articles section. It'll give you great insight into this situation. Product-wise, I recommend you perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE.

    Q: I am in need of cleansing my body and weight removal! (Removal and not loss because I don't want to find it again)! I need to remove about 80 pounds of unhealthy weight from my body and would like to do so in a natural way. I looked at both your Female Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse, but don't know which is a better option for me to follow right now? I eat a lot of organic foods, I juice (some) but need to increase my water intake (A LOT). I don't drink much soda at all and when I do it is organic carbonated lemonade. I realize carbonated drinks are not good for us and limit how much I drink. My body lets me know when I have eaten something that is not good for me by causing my hands and feet to swell. To reduce this I drink water. I am allergic to wheat and try to stay away from it as much as possible. I have few ailments and have started working out again (cardio and weight training). I also looked at your weight loss products, but thought I should maybe detox first. What do you think? Any assistance you can offer on your products and which ones I should take is of great appreciation.

    A: The best thing for you is the Full Body Cleanse. The Full Body Cleanse will allow you to remove unwanted weight, while also optimizing your entier body so that you can maintain that weight and live a healthier lifestyle.

    Q: I am interested in starting the Full Body Detox program. At this time, I would like to know which program is best for me. At current, I have started removing things from my diet as of 2 weeks ago (pork, chicken, red meat, I'm trying with the fish but it's hard!) I am not eating cheese but I still eat yogurt and every now and then I will eat a boiled egg (egg whites). I have removed soda from my diet, no coffee, I drink herbal or green tea, pomegranate juice or orange juice and I drink filtered water (I have a countertop filter that I change every 6 months and the Brita pitcher that I change every 2 months). Along with the supplement, is there an eating plan that you can suggest for me? I am eating more fruits and vegetables, but I would welcome suggestions on certain foods that I can eat while I begin my cleansing.

    A:

    The Full Body Detox kit comes with a prescribed dietary plan and notifies a person what they can and cannot eat during the detox.

    Q: I just ordered this FULL BODY DETOX, and should receive it shortly. I am wondering if I am able to drink any alcohol at all on this, such as vodka/soda. This may seem like an odd question, but I do have a couple events to attend to and I need to know this information before I start.

    A:

    This is answered in the "FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PAGE" (near end of page) called FAQ For Dummies! Not directed at you personally - just the name of the section (like all the books out for dummies, i.e. Microsoft For Dummies).

    Q: I would like to know what are the benefits of green food drinks (superfoods as I've heard them called) and how often could I drink them in a day. Thank you in advance for your wisdom!

    The benefits are all positive: alkaline, energizing, nutritious, rich in chlorophyll, antioxidant, etc. and you can drink them as much as you like, just like many people drink wine, beer, coffee, Kool-Aid, milk, etc. as much as they like and never worry about it. It's all good!

    Q: SOMETHING YOU SAID PERKED MY EARS. I JUST GOT THE KYK940 IONIZER. THEY RECOMMEND 8.5 STARTING OFF, AND 9.5 ON A REGULAR BASIS, EXCEPT WHEN CLEANSING. NOW, ARE YOU SAYING I CAN'T GET BENEFITS UNLESS I DRINK A PH OF 14? BECAUSE IN THE BODY THE ACID WILL BRING IT DOWN TO ABOUT 8. ON THE CD I GOT WITH THE UNIT, 9.5 WAS PH OF THE WATER IN LOURDES, FRANCE THAT PEOPLE DRINK THAT LIVE A LONG TIME. I BELIEVE THERE IS ONLY ONE CAUSE FOR DISEASE, OVER ACIDITY OF THE BODY. CAN I GET BENEFITS FROM 9.5 ?

    A:

    You misunderstand what I was talking about, Beloved. I was talking about "my" machine! Any water with a pH of 9.5 is going to raise your pH levels - GUARANTEED! You have a good unit and will benefit greatly from it! Drink high alkaline water (9.5 pH), as much as possible!

    Q: I’ve been referred to your FULL BODY DETOX by my sister. I’ve been joyfully on it for a little over two weeks. I’m scheduled to finish this Tuesday coming up. Everything is wonderful as far as that flows... However, I have this wisdom tooth that decided to creep out of my gums and infect them as well... I'm in excruciating pain... I visited the dentist... He said he can’t pull the tooth until the gums heal.. My sister has me gargling with hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, tea tree oil and clove oil.... I want to know if this combination will heal my infected gums? Is this equivalent to what she would call an anti-fungal? I would deeply appreciate all of your wisdom right now? What you recommend now to heal the gums and preparing for and healing from the minor surgery? And Mr. Maatra your herbs and my willingness are healing me in imaginable ways.. My sister has been speaking of you and your influence in her

    A:

    Nadia has you gargling with some good stuff! Keep doing what you are doing. The hydrogen peroxide will help heal your gums. KHEMETIAN GOLD (available at Dherbs.Com) can also be used as a gargle. This is some powerful stuff! Read the â€BENEFITS OF CARBON A/K/A ACTIVATED CHARCOAL†article as well. Follow the advice in that article! Nadia is an apostle of health! A dear friend whom I love, value, and treasure! A real trooper! You'd all be wise to listen to her. She knows her stuff. A very powerful spiritual soul indeed! life.. We all laughed at her two years ago... She endured a lot... Now she’s got seven of us detoxing... Life is hilarious isn’t she.... Thank you for caring for those you haven’t even seen....

    Q: I love to drink water, but I like to drink hot water you know boiling water slightly cooled. Is there a benefit, or disadvantage to this compared to drinking room temperature water? Secondly, the water I drink is boiled water. Alkaline water is not a privilege most Kenyans have. If 56% of the population is living below poverty line you do the math. So the water I drink is tap water, that I boil to make it safe for drinking. When I get to work I have Alkaline water as my work place provides me with that provision. I think this is detailed enough for you to get the picture and help. Once again (I love you) in Swahili for spreading the gospel!

    A:

    No difference at all, Beloved! Even the boiled water becomes room temperature water. You're doing fine! Thank you for your words as well! Much appreciated! Peace and Love!

    Q: Please tell me which products will help my 11 yr old son eliminate or aid in his healing of this horrible disease (Allergic Fungal Sinusitis). He was taking allergy shots once a week for a year. He is allergic to everything...grass, trees; dustmites, soy, wheat, dairy, eggs. He now drinks rice milk and I order food online at ener_g foods such as breads, cookies etc that are made without all the things he is allergic to. I want to boost his immune system to help fight this disease. He is on a strict diet and I would love you input on how to help him.

    A:

    Clearly he's toxic! Clean his body out and the problem will go away. Try CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . Let him drink warm water and lemon juice (from fresh squeezed lemon) every day. Let him drink herbal tea of Mullein leaf and/or Eucalyptus. When he is bathing, drop in 6-8 drops of essential oil of Eucalyptus per bath and add 1 box of sea salt to every bath. Let him soak for 45 minutes or so. He can heal from this problem!

    Q: I'm a 21 year old male suffering from testicular disorder and from partial impotence (Takes longer than 5 minutes without porn to get hard and no morning erections). Here are my questions. 1. How long would it take for the Male Hormonal Formula (which I just purchased a few days ago) before I notice any results? Just curious. 2. Can take the three daily pills all at once, one before each meal (breakfast, lunch dinner), or what? 3. How much water should I drink with this and can other drinks like tea and juice act as a substitute for just plain water?

    A:

    How fast you see results with the Male Hormonal Formula all depends on how much your body needs to cleanse before it returns to optimal function!

    You can take all 3 capsules at once.

    You can drink water or substitute water with herbal tea or fresh juice.

    Q: My daughter, who is 11 yrs old found a 1cm lump in her left breast 2wks ago. She was referred to a specialist and of course they want to surgically remove the lump. I let a co-worker scan the lump and they think it is a non-cancerous fibroandroma (I do ultrasound myself) and I saw a couple of cysts around the area as well. Of course I don't want the surgery for my daughter. Do you have any suggestions on how to get rid of all the abnormalities herbally? Maybe Yellow Dock tea, but I am concerned about her young age. Maybe a light detox. She started her period already at 11yrs old. Most healthcare professionals say fibroandromas are normal at this age when they begin their cycle due to the hormonal changes. I know better. My daughter drinks about 4-5 cups of purified water (aquavie machine) a day, no red meat, just chicken. Sneaks candy from school and little desserts at home maybe say 4 cookies a day. She gets sugar from natural OJ and Ocean Spray cranberry juice though. I am working on getting her off of sugar completely but it is a challenge. I’ve been a vegetarian for 5 years and am slowly going raw. Always seeking more knowledge. Also could there be a lack of something in her diet? My daughter is lazy and never works out play outside consistently (5'7" and 143lbs) she is tall for her age and is sliming her stomach down almost unnoticeable just a little pudge left. 1 day of PE in the schools. I am yust trying to paint the picture and give you her history.

    A:

    HAVE THE CHILD PERFORM THE CHILDREN’S DETOX EVERY 3 MONTHS. I WOULD ALSO HAVE HER DRINK THE : DETOX TEA AS WELL (EVERY DAY, ONE CUP). SOUNDS LIKE YOU ALSO NEED TO WORK ON KEEPING THE CHILD'S COLON MOVING CONSISTENTLY AS WELL. THROUGH MODIFIED DIET AND NUTRITION THE LUMP CAN DISSOLVE ON IT'S OWN. HOWEVER, DISCIPLINE IS KEY HERE!

    Q: I'm doing the Full Body Cleanse and I have a few questions about it: I get tired of drinking just the distilled water and I'd like to drink the herbal teas, but I don't like it by itself. Would it mess things up to add a pack or two of Splenda to my tea or maybe honey? I can't stand the salads with the olive oil or apple cider vinegar or the lemon juice as dressing and it makes me gag. I have To have some sort of salad dressing. What kind would be suitable? Do I look for sugar-free? Or organic and natural? I found one that is organic and natural, but it has 3 grams of sugar in it. Without eating all my whole grained breads and other fiber, I haven't had much of a bowel movement in 3 days, should I wait a while yet? (I had surgery on my bowels and always had to take fiber tablets and eat lots of grains to get my bowels to move.) I haven't done the enemas yet, (low on money) should I try that? Or should I resume my fiber tablets I normally take? Any type of fiber I could add to my fruit smoothies in the morning? I want to also do the female cleanse. Is it ok to do that immediately after I finish the full body cleanse or should I wait for a little while? Thank you for all your help, I feel much better than I did before and I just started this detox a week ago, lost 10 pounds, too, woohoooooo! Thank you

    A:

    1. Instead of splenda, use agave, stevia, or grade b maple syrup as a sweetener.

    2. In re Salad Dressing, an organic and natural one is great. You can also check our website for salad dressing recipes.

    3. The fiber pills are not part of the cleanse, so we wouldn't advise those. Fruit is you best choice of fiber so look into eating more papaya, mango, figs, etc. And yes, colonics (and enemas) would greatly help you - undoubtedly!

    4. You can do the Female Cleanse right after you finish detoxing. There's no need to wait!

    Q: My question is regarding fibroids. I have been told I have had fibroids about the size of someone 3 months pregnant. I have been told there are two in clusters. They gave me the diameters, but I don't have that information at this time. My OB/GYN has told me he believes it is causing me to be slightly anemic. I have been trying some remedies on my own like more exercise and a change in diet. My primary physician does not recommend surgery she has me taking iron ferrous sulfate supplements twice per day to help with my iron count. It seems to be helping. The only problem I have with taking the iron supplements is that it sometimes causes constipation and I am normally pretty regular. I usually eliminate 2 times per day sometimes 3. My OB/GYN on the other hand keeps pushing for me to having surgery.& amp; nbsp; They had me take BC pills, however I took myself off of them because they made me sick. I took them only for 6 months. I'm 45 and have never taken BC pills ever and I don't want to start now. I've never been pregnant. I flow heavy on my 2nd and 3rd day heavy and after that it is manageable. My cycle has improved however I want to reduce the flow on those days if possible and of course dissolve the fibroid if at all possible. Doctors tell me they won't go away unless removed. I used to be on my cycle for 7 days and 4 of those days were heavy. Now I'm normally on for 4 days and only the 2nd and 3rd day are heavy. I know that as I reach menopause they may shrink in size, however I'm still aways off from that. I eat no red meat however I do eat fish and poultry. I eat a pretty good balance of vegetables and fruits, mostly raw and steamed. I drink lactaid milk. I don't eat much dairy except cheese and eggs occasionally. I do have a weakness, I love potato chips. I know this is not good. I can feel the fibroid get bigger when I eat them. When I stop for a period of time it decreases in size. At least I feel like it does. I'm not a sugar craver, however during the week before my cycle I'll crave sweets. I usually resist. I feel it's my diet that has caused the fibroids as well as every female in my family has had a hysterectomy due to fibroids. I think it is also hereditary as well. Whatever the case I'd like to know what regimen can you put me on that will help me? The goal is to reduce or dissolve the size of the fibroid so it is not affecting my iron level. I'm also starting to see my abdomen get bigger when I've always had a flat stomach. Perhaps this is me just getting older, however I think it's the fibroids. Constant low levels over time can't be good. I hope I have provided you enough information to give me your recommendation. If not please feel free to e-mail me for any additional information you need. I'm looking for a natural cure. Outside of this condition I'm in very good health. No problem with weight, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. I'm pretty athletic and active as well. Please advise. I look forward to your recommendation.

    A:

    I remember just recently e-mailing you on this inquiry. Your diet MUST CHANGE! Consider full fledged RAW FOODS and VEGAN diet during your healing transition. Lactaid milk is HORRIBLE for you. Did you read our â€FIBROID TUMORS†article?????? You need to keep on performing FULL BODY DETOX followed by Fibroid Buster kit and regimen, back to back! Continuously! Detoxing must become a lifestyle for you! For iron, consider Dherbs.Com IRON PHOSPHATE FORMULA and MOON CYCLE FORMULA. Also, consider a telephone consultation because time is greatly limited in writing back in response to inquiries. There is much healing for you, Beloved!

    Q: While doing a candida cleanse, it was told to me that I should be following a raw food diet full of fruits and vegetables. Fruits have high sugar content and can feed a candida overgrowth, as it is a well known fact that candida albicans thrive on sugar. How can I justify eating fruits high in sugar? Thank you for your comments. Ozzy

    A: Yes, when you have a candida issue it's best to avoid refined sugar. Sugar from a natural source like fruits should be consumed moderately. In your case it would be best to consume fruits mainly in the mornings for breakfast when your body maximizes on food the most, avoiding the ones that are very high in sugar.

    Q: I have been experiencing very trying health issues for many years (over 25 years). The trouble began when my gall bladder was removed 26 years ago. I had mood swings, lack of energy, and severe diarrhea. Approximately 13 years ago I had an additional surgery for an umbilical hernia. Due to pre-op tests, my physician diagnosed me with thyroid disease and placed me on synthroid. This medication dramatically improved the digestive issues I had experienced for many years. I had very loose bowels when menstruating and when I was ill. I am overweight and have dealt with weight issues all my life. Three years ago I had a scare where I thought I experienced a heart attack. I spent three days in the hospital and learned of many health risks. My triglycerides were extremely high along with my sugar being borderline. I have been tested for diabetes on a number of occasions in my life but never show to be. There are numerous cases of diabetes in my family. My mother and one sister are insulin dependent and one other sister is on some form of pill medication for diabetes. At that time, I gave up sugar and began a regime at the gym. The have not eaten any sweets other than what I get in a little ketchup occasionally or some other kind of sauce that may contain some sugar. I have gone to the gym with minimal results in losing weight. I had a total hysterectomy six weeks ago. My regular GP has been on vacation and I've been dealing with one of her associates. This dr. sent me in for glucose tolerance and she has since diagnosed me as Type II Diabetic. She put me on a medication called "Metformin" and has me taking a 500 mg pill twice daily. I have only been on this medication for three days. I have been very careful to eat only what they say I can. I am experiencing the same issues as before with the diarrhea. Last night I was up all night with this and it is like water coming out of me. I am unable to find a physician who understands that I want to lose the weight, but cannot when I'm constantly dehydrated and feeling lethargic. When I have this constant problem, I am not able to do what I need to do for my overall health. Sorry to be so wordy but I wanted to explain the full extent of what I am experiencing. My friend told me to get on this website and explain my issues. He feels that you may be able to guide me in the direction of a natural product or products that can help me to have normal bowel movements and therefore begin doing the physical exercise that is needed for me to reduce my chances of becoming an insulin dependent diabetic.

    A:

    I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO FIRST TRY THE FULL BODY DETOX (TAKING THINGS ONE DAY AT A TIME). AFTER THIS CLEANSE, I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO PERFORM THE PANCREAS CLEANSE AND REGIMEN . LET'S TAKE THIS SLOWLY AND GET YOU BACK TO OPTIMAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING. FIRST THINGS FIRST, OKAY? ALSO, PLEASE CONSIDER A CONSULTATION AS THERE'S ONLY SO MUCH TIME I CAN GIVE TO RESPONDING VIA E-MAIL DUE TO ALL THE E-MAILS WE GET DAILY.YOU CAN HEAL. JUST CONCENTRATE ON HEALING, NOT DIABETES. LET'S START HERE, OKAY?

    Q: I recently went to the hospital and I thought I had the virus in the hospital the nurses were very negative towards me. I was given bad medication and as a result I had all the symptoms of the virus when I left the hospital and I am still testing negative and I feel like they have given me bad meds to try to kill me. I don't look the same every time I drink something that has acid in it, it makes my skin turn red and now when I go out I feel that everyone with the virus know what the hospital has done to me people just laugh knowing that the hospital nurse gave me a HIV cocktail. What can I do? I have been to the doctor numerous times and it seems like every thing I touch has germs and it’s getting inside of my body. I was treated really unfair. Now in the community where I live also.

    A:

    IF THEY DID SLIP YOU A HIV COCKTAIL, HERE'S WHAT I SUGGEST: PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX AND DRINK DETOX TEA WHILE DETOXING. YOU SHOULD BE FINE AFTER THIS. FOCUS ON POSITIVE THOUGHTS ONLY. NO NEGATIVE THINKING!

    Q: I have a quick question for you, I REALLY like your site and products, I have bought teas and your FULL BODY DETOX so far... I have been trying to explain to my girlfriend that prescriptions are NOT the answer and that there is always an alternative to taking legalized drugs (medications) The question: We both have Genital Herpes, though since I did the FULL BODY DETOX, and have been drinking the ANTI-VIRAL TEA I haven't had any symptoms... My question is, my girlfriend is 7 months pregnant and I want to know if it is ok for her to drink the ANTI-VIRAL TEA? I've notice that your other teas either say OK to drink while pregnant or NOT ok to drink while pregnant and or lactating... But your Anti-Viral tea doesn't say either ... If you could email me back and let me know if she can drink it or not I would appreciate it, as she wants to go get a prescription and that's the LAST thing I want her to do being pregnant and all...

    A:

    Yes, a pregnant woman may drink ANTI-VIRAL TEA!
