Last week you eliminated or greatly reduced many harmful substances in your diet. That allowed your body to improve its ability to detoxify substances that interfere with or impede natural en≠zyme and other bodily processes. It was critical to tackle this step first to eliminate obstacles that may prevent the natural performance of your bodyís own enzymes and the countless biochemical processes they are involved in.
During this week of the program weíll set the stage for optimal health by providing the essential nutrients that ensure the proper functioning of life force enzymes.
