How to lose pounds!

Yes, you read that right!! POUNDS!!!! If you know me then you will know I have tried every weight loss tip and trick in the book and gone from starving myself to eating like there’s no tomorrow!! When it comes to weight loss it is SO hard to keep up with, changing your eating habits and exercising and keeping away from junk and remembering to keep hydrated!

So I came across a video about an all natural drink that helps you lose pounds and obviously I was game! Mention the word weight loss and I’m game! So what is this amazing drink I am keeping you all in suspense about you ask? Well, it’s a drink made up of five ingredients that cleanse your body naturally! So non of extra bull you get from tablets and teas!

So in a little more detail, what is in the drink;

  • 1 tbsp of Organic Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tsp of Sea salt
  • 1tbsp Organic Ginger Juice
  • 1/3 of a cup Pure Apple Juice
  • 1/3 cup of cooled boiled water

How I use it

So first think in the morning I make this drink and drink it while I rush around making the kids breakfast, and leave around half an hour before I have my own, lets be honest it’s always an hour or so after! But, the recommended time is half an hour. I boil the water in the kettle, throw everything in a mug and mix it all up! – Super easy to make, sometimes if I accidently add too much salt I just add more apple juice to make it taste better!

How it works

So obviously the next question how is drinking this every morning going to work? This drink works as a colon cleanser, what is a colon cleanser you ask? its an ancient practice of cleansing out the large intestine. The cleanse is supposed to clean out the toxins and waste in the colon which results in enhancing the vitality of the body. The other benefits of the cleanse include; weight loss (YASS!), improve the immune system and improve mental outlook! which is pretty ace right?

How did I find it?

Well since I had my baby who is 9 months this week I have been trying to lose weight through exercise and healthy eating MOST importantly keeping it all natural rather than using quick fixes and tablets, they have all failed on me!! I discovered this cleanse a couple of weeks ago and the results are AMAZING I am seeing my body shape changing, I have dropped 7 pounds since I started drinking it!!!! It really does works and it feels amazing doing it in a healthy way, I’m no gym freak and I don’t work out as much as I would like to, I also do not have a strict diet however, I do try to maintain a healthy diet! I like to be honest and blunt with you guys so I got to add that as it is a COLON cleanse, it will make you go toilet, that does NOT mean you will get the shits, it just means its working and you will go for a number 2 :D!

Some things to take into consider before trying out this cleanse, firstly KEEP HYDRATED, water is your best friend it will not BLOAT you if you build up how much you drink slowly, I never used to drink water, so when I started drinking more I had a bottle a day, then a bottle and a half, then two bottles and so on, I am currently on 2 and half bottles! Next thing to help cleanse your colon you can add insoluble fibres to your diet such as cereals and whole grains and soluble fibres such as fruit, veg oatmeal and bran.

That’s all for now, I tried to keep this post short and include all the important info!!

If you do try this cleanse let me know how it goes!!

Cupping – My Experience

I am actually really excited to share this post with you guys, when I posted my picture on Instagram after my cupping session I had a lot of people asking me so many questions and I hope I can answer them all in this post!

What is cupping?

For those of you who don’t really know what it is or are unsure of what it is, cupping is an ancient holistic therapy where cups are placed on your skin for a couple of minutes and to create suction, which then follows in small cuts being made in the area where blood and toxins are drawn out, people usually have this done for inflammation, blood flow, well-being, relaxation and pain.

Cupping treats many health problems including; Headaches/migraines, stress, sports injuries, shoulder back and neck pain, muscular pain, sciatica, skin disorders, depression/anxiety, diabetes, asthma, quitting smoking, joint pain, fatigue, digestive problems, weight management, kidney disorder, deep detox and many more!

Cupping is also a prophetic tradition performed by Muslims. The prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) said “Indeed the best of remedies you have is cupping” (Saheeh Al-Bukharee 5371) There are certain sunnah points of cupping on the body which cures diseases.

So I was contacted by Sadia from Cupping For Health who asked me if I would like to come in for a cupping session, now I have heard of cupping and several years ago I did have it done, it wasn’t much just one cup and to be fare I don’t remember much about it or how I felt, so when I saw this message I was like, yeah, cool sounds good I’ll do it- If you know me, you will know I’m always up for anything I’m so curious about how things work so of course I was game! We agreed I would come down on the day she in Stoke and that was it, I never really decided to look into it or ask many questions until I mentioned it to some people and I got questions like ‘Is she qualified to do it?’ or ‘Is her equipment sterile?’ and the one that scared me the most ‘You do know you lose a lot of blood?‘ – Like wow, typical me I never even asked!

ANYWAYS long story short I was very anxious coming closer to Thursday I was thinking omg whats gonna happen… Come Thursday I turned up (late! Sorry again Sadia) It’s in the genes WERE ALWAYS LATE !! So, I got there and I felt more anxious like ‘yup I’m gonna die’ kind of anxious, we got into the room and spoke a little she explained the procedure as I filled in a short form – which I’m not gonna lie made me feel more anxious- )something about forms when your at a clinic just scare me I’m forever thinking about how I’m signing my life away haha!) I keep going off track, But as Sadia spoke to me and answered my questions I began to feel more relaxed she made the whole thing so relaxing it was amazing I was actually worried about meeting this person I don’t know and having her do some sort of butchery to my back!! But she honestly was the kindest and sweetest person!

The procedure now, THIS is what FREAKS people out…googling cupping is the worst thing you could do, if you haven’t ever had it done, it looks CRAY, like these cups full of blood attached to your back and you’re sat there wondering ‘what sort of MONSTROSITY IS THIS!?’ It really is NOT how it looks. The procedure is pretty straightforward the cups are placed in certain areas of your body according to what you are wanting to do the cupping for and the skin is sucked into the cup using a hand vacuum (this is not like a hoover! its a small pump its in the pictures above) and left for a few minutes to draw any toxins towards that area, it is then taken off and VERY light scratches are made within the area where the cup was, these are not deep at all and feel like light strokes the blade used for this are sterile and very sharp so they create a cut without needing any effort. The cups are then reapplied and the toxins within the blood are drawn out of the body. Once all toxins have been removed the cups are take off carefully and black seed oil is used to apply over the cuts, this is to keep them from being infected and the skin to heal quickly.

Once Sadia started the procedure I still felt a little nervous however she was so calm and easy to talk to, it made everything that much easier so once I was ready she talked me through it all again and made me feel a lot better. I also got asked ‘Does It Hurt?‘, omg NO it’s pain freee!!! I didn’t feel anything at all when she did the cups and cutting, the only thing I could feel was the blood coming out of the cuts, it was a weird feeling but nothing scary, or painful! While the blood was coming out I felt, well I cannot describe in words how I felt it was as if some sort of weight was lifted off my back it was one of the most amazing feelings ever, It was as if I was in touch with my soul, I felt so peaceful. I honestly cannot find the words to describe it! Once the blood was out and the cups were ready to come off Sadia showed me the toxins she had removed, not gonna lie it was gross, but honestly the feeling was amazing! She applied black seed oil to the areas she had treated and talked me through the aftercare and we were done, the whole treatment lasted around 35 minutes. The cups that were placed on me were aimed to cure fatigue, stress, chest pains and anxiety.

The following few days after cupping I felt like a whole new person, I was sleeping well and getting through the day so well! I was shocked, I was always feeling tired and fatigued, that was all gone! I wasn’t stressing as I always do it was so good! The marks went after around 5 days, the only thing I found was that the areas felt so itchy but I ‘want to scratch them incase of scarring the area! So I think it’s safe to say this is probably one of the best things I have ever done and I am surely going to keep having it done, Sadia recommended for people who are having it done for their very first time they should have it done every 4-6 weeks (upto three times), then around 3 times a year, or more if needed!

 

 

 

 

 

The lady I had my treatment done from is called Sadia she is located in three different cities Birmingham, Stoke On Trent and Nottingham you can find her at:

Stoke-On-Trent: M Club (Festival Park)

Birmingham: Solihull wellbeing centre (Hall Green)

Nottingham: Lenton Business Centre

She has 7+ years experience in cupping and has studied cupping abroad in Egypt for 1 year! I have been to another person once before and I don’t like slandering businesses online but, the other person was not as informative and not as reassuring, Sadia talked to me about her qualifications, made me feel at ease, I mean if you are able to book her I would HIGHLY recommend! She is very good at what she does, you can also find her on her social media Facebook & Instagram.

It’s also important for me to add she uses NEW disposable cupping equipment for each patient (pump & blade)

You can also contact her on: 07967045628. I WhatsApp her you can ring or message whatever you prefer.
