The Best and Cheapest Detox You Can Have Daily: Costs Only a Few Cents a Day
Why is Detox Important for You?

Probably everyday we hear or read about "detox" on the Net. And mostly, when something becomes a byword, either of two things happens--you become so curious you do everything to find out what it's all about, or you disregard it, thinking it just another fad--especially if you're the anti-fad type.

Actually, detoxification, or detox for short, is a natural process the body does now and then, especially each early morning. Each time you sweat, urinate, or move your bowel, your body detoxifies. Early in the morning, at about 4 to 6 am, is when your body does its major detox work. Without detox, your body retains toxins and infections that managed to slip into your system through food, water, and the environment and lurk in your body.

If you don't sweat enough, are suffering from constipation, and urinate less, you don't detox well. Chances are, you're overweight and easily get tired and sick. Your immune system is weak, more so if you smoke, eat mostly junk, sleep late, and overstressed. You have to aid your body's detox. How?

Water Therapy

Water therapy is the best and cheapest detox you can have daily. All it'll cost you is the water consumption. Do it daily between 4 to 6 in the morning, drinking 3 to 4 tall glasses of water, even tap water. Better if alkaline water. It will be hard at first and may even make you feel dizzy and nauseated because your body is adjusting. This early in the morning, your body does its most important detox job and drinking water will help it a lot.

You're most likely to need the restroom quick and also urinate at least 3 times in the morning. Then, during the day, you need to drink at least 2 liters of water, also daily. Water therapy helps you feel stronger, have better immune defense, and may also aid in weight loss. Imagine that, getting 3 important health benefits for mere cents daily!

And for much better results, exercise 30 minutes to an hour after water therapy before breakfast. It doesn't need to be a full-blown workout. Just brisk walk for 45 minutes to an hour, for instance.

Finally, I'm not saying water therapy is all you need to stay healthy and detoxed. It's a good foundation, though. You need to complement it with fresh fruit juices, vegetables, healthy meals, natural health supplements, and regular medical check ups.

These are among my Choy's Cut health tips.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

You'd be Shocked How Healthy Butong Pakwan Really Is

Butong Pakwan or watermelon seed. We've been thinking, all we get from eating it is salt (butong pakwan sold in small packs are salted for taste) and chewing fun to kill time away.

I used to just let the seeds remain in my mouth until I have sucked all their saltiness. And then I'd spew them all out.

But don't take butong pakwan lightly from now on.

Nutritionists claim butong pakwan actually has tremendous health benefits.  No less than the US National Institute of Health says butong pakwan is rich in magnesium which is important for regulating blood pressure and metabolizing carbohydrates which is good for normalizing blood sugar.

Butog pakwan also has iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper, sodium zinc and manganese which are vital minerals.

It's also so rich in protein. A cup of it satisfies 61 percent of your daily recommended dose of protein. The protein includes tryptopjan, amino acids, glutamic acid arginine and lysine. Some experts say added arginine may be good f…
