Do you have cravings?  For sugar or carbs or even things like cheese?  Are they strong and irresistible?  Strong, hard-to-beat cravings indicate that something in our body is off-balance.  If you explore where they are coming from, you will be taking the 1st step to getting rid of them.  And, believe me, life is much more peaceful without those nagging cravings! 

In working with people and also from my own self-experimentation, I've uncovered a golden truth.  Filling our bodies with nutrient dense foods calms our bodies' "screams" for the non-nutrient dense foods.  Seriously, it is that simple.  Most of our bodies are SCREAMING for nutrients!  Good nutrient dense food.  That is often where that craving is originating.  (There are other reasons that can be explored in another post, but this is the most common.)  Sugar and processed foods are going into our bodies and our bodies are then craving more of the same.  Once we fill them with nutrient dense foods, we discover that the "screaming" slowly goes to yelling, then even to talking.  And eventually it turns into a whisper or doesn't even have a voice at all!  And that is when we have a greater ability to by-pass the same nutrient void foods we were once craving.

I have a friend who decided to get some nutrients into her day by making a green smoothie every morning.  She included lots of fruit to calm the bitter taste of the greens. And that helped her to enjoy and look forward to the smoothie every morning.  After a short while she experienced amazing results.  She said that there was a large cookie sitting on the table that would have normally called to her until she ate it all.  This particular morning she started eating a few bites of it and set it down - surprising herself that she didn't want to eat the rest of it!  She was so grateful that the cravings were settling.  And it was all because she answered her body's call to balance itself with some good nutrients.  Our bodies have a language.  They literally speak to us - through cravings, through aches and pains, etc.  If we are experiencing these things, it is our bodies' attempt to tell us, "Hey, something is off. Something is out of balance.  Help me!"  We can re-balance our bodies and feel better as we listen to what they are saying to us.  It takes some practice, it takes some effort and some true listening.  But once we become more in tune, we will be able to find solutions to our problems and be on the path to greater physical and emotional health.

How I found ASEA

I don't get into product hype.  I've been introduced to many products through attending the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, as well as from my personal quest for supplements or products that would help me when I was ill.  I felt compelled to turn down things that sounded too good to be true and made promises of healing.  Not that they weren't decent products, just that they weren't the right thing for me to be taking at the time.  At the time I was focusing on how I could heal through dietary interventions. It required a lot of experimentation and trial and error.   And I wanted to do everything I could do before I took a "magic pill" or the like.

Along the healing path there were certain practices that were clearly helpful to me.  Taking digestive enzymes, exercising, increasing my consumption of greens and raw foods, to name a few.  It's now been over 2 years since I started healing.  And, recently, I literally hit the dietary wall - so to speak.  In other words, the optimal diet for me (high on the raw foods) was no longer working in all respects.  At this point I would call my health issues minor, but there are still some there.  So I switched some things up with my diet (eliminated a few problem foods and lowered my raw food consumption) and the problems I was having disappeared...but other problems came.  It was a little disconcerting, because they were problems that I had said good-bye to quite some time ago.  They had disappeared when I increased my consumption of green smoothies and salads.  As I thought about the fact that I might just have to settle for one set of problems, I prayed to know if there was something else that might help.  I had exhausted all possibilities with my diet.  I had studied nutrition and diligently applied the principles to myself and my healing.  I had really done all that I knew how.

Enter ASEA...I had read about this amazing supplement quite a few months ago when a former doctor of mine introduced it into his holistic practice.  But on this particular day, when I was "searching", I came across it again.  I started reading about it and was convinced that this was the missing link for me.  Fast forward 6 weeks, and the benefits that my husband and I are receiving from this "signaling molecules" supplement are truly amazing.  It has already reversed some of the problems I mentioned before.  My digestion is improving, some intermittent fatigue has gone away, tendonitis in my left arm is gone, and even my nails are getting stronger!  I expect to see even more improvement as I stay on the supplement.  The greatest result for my husband so far is that his weight has budged - downward!  He had tried everything (cleanses, diets, exercise) and it was clear that he had some metabolic issues that were preventing him from losing weight.

That said, we have decided that this product is worth sharing!  We hope it can benefit your lives as it has ours.
