How I Prepared for Christmas – French Cleanse Program

screenshot_01If you have not checked out our latest video on Black Box’s Channel, please click on the link above! As the name suggests, it’s all about the different ways we can detox in our daily lives and more effectively so with the help of Theresa Beauty’s French Cleanse Juices! Previously I have tried out Theresa’s signature internal detoxification and external slimming treatments. If you wonder why it’s called the “French” Cleanse and how this program originated from, read on!

The French are known for their excellent and sumptuous meals. French women practically don’t get fat. Despite the abundant availability of exquisite French macaroons, breads and cheeses, there is still one golden rule of typical French eating habits – that is, to eat everything in moderation in order to revel in delicious meals but also stay off the kilos.

The French Cleanse system is formulated with the best fruits from the land of France. Cleansing the body system with its rich organic nutrients to achieve optimum well-being.  The human body is designed to be an extraordinary self healing mechanism. Its number one priority is to consistently return to homeostasis, or “perfect balance”. In perfect balance we experience complete health, vitality, energy and optimum well-being. One of the most important ways our bodies achieve this balance is through detoxification.

Our detox organs (liver, kidneys, colon, lungs and skin) work 24 hours a day to rid our bodies of the harmful toxins and sticky waste products that accumulate in our cells. Processed foods, air pollutants, cleaning agents, the water we drink, medications, even many of the beauty products we slather on to our skin contain harmful chemicals that the body has to continually process. As these toxins accumulate in our cells, our bodies become taxed, overworked and overburdened. We begin to experience breakdowns in our health, digestion, immunity, clarity and our ability to focus.

It is possible to develop signs of pre-mature aging, allergies, unexplained aches and pains, and “stress” headaches. We go through our days feeling thick, heavy, bloated, tired, depressed and discouraged. But we don’t have to! Juice cleansing is a natural way to give our bodies a break, clear out toxic obstructions, and repair degenerated cells. Let fresh raw juices flood our cells with live enzymes, vitamins, mineral and oxygen in their most absorbable form. These are the vital elements that stimulate the body’s innate healing system while flushing out old toxic waste. When the waste is eliminated, our bodies can return to its natural balance and optimum health, leaving us feeling light, clear, healthy and energised!

Cleansing the organs with natural foods in the meantime has become a new type of effective self treatment. The best part is, you can enjoy the juices because they happen to taste good too!

Theresa recommends that their customers should undergo internal detoxification in order to achieve optimum slimming and detox results. Otherwise, the weight loss process will be lengthy and there is a 90% possibility of weight rebound.

Theresa Beauty’s French Cleanse juices are:

• free from chemical residue that are harmful to one’s health (they may cause cancer and allergies).

• 100% pure fruit, carefully selected from their own farm, pressed, softly pasteurized to preserve nutritional quality and bottled – the fruits used in the juices are certified by many certifying bodies in France. One of which is Ecocert, that guarantees natural cosmetics containing ingredients resulting from Organic agriculture and complying with precise rules aiming at protecting the consumers and the environment. The AB logo belongs to the French Ministry of Agriculture.

• not made from concentrate.

While you enjoy the high quality taste, no sugar, water, preservatives, artificial or natural additives are added. So they are a dietetic drink and need around 2kg of fruits to get 1 liter of juice. In fact, drinking a 250ml glass is equal to 500g of fruits.

Alene and myself were given 3 flavours for our 3-day French Cleanse – Hibiscus, Raspberry and Apricot.

Benefits of Hibiscus (Main Quality: Detoxification)

1) A natural emollient ideal for softening and healing skin.

2) Stimulates Body Detoxification

3) Improves arterial health by decreasing blood viscosity

4) Hibiscus contains anti-oxidants that help control cholesterol

5) Known to alleviate constipation, bladder infections and nausea.

Benefits of Raspberry (Main Quality: Ultimate Fat Burner)

1) Raspberries break down fats 5 times faster, reduces weight by 2kg to 4kg and body fat by 5% in one week. Raspberries are excellent source of anthocyanins, the powerful anti-oxidants, which retard the effects of aging, prevent cancer and may reduce the risk of heart disease.

2) Excellent source of manganese and Vitamin C, town critical antioxidant nutrients that help protect the body tissue from oxygen- related damage.

3) Great for alleviating morning sickness and arthritis

4) Folic acid is important in helping the body make new cells, especially red blood cells.

5) Combat viruses and bacteria

6) Drastically increases lipolysis (fat breakdown) in the body as well as greatly increasing your body’s resting metabolism, allowing you to burn stored fat and shed pounds quickly and efficiently

7) Regulate metabolism and break down stored fat.

8) Increases our metabolic rate without heart palpitations like slimming pills

Benefits of Apricot (High Fibre Detox)

1) High fibre promotes metabolism and prevents indigestion

2) Protection of skin and lungs from oxidative damage

3) A very cooling drink to soothe fever when mixed with glucose or honey

4) Lycopene is known to prevent build-up of fatty deposits in arteries

PC224847

So the program is to alternate between the Hibiscus, Raspberry and Apricot juices in scheduled timings throughout the day, from 9am to 8pm while maintaining a low-calorie, protein-based diet (light meals). As you can see I have been conscientiously drinking the juices and really looking forward to my next glass everyday! In between the juices, we have been advised to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. That calls for frequent visits to the washroom to clear the bowels/bladder but it’s all worth it because I never felt so detoxed and healthy! The result is also a less bloated feeling because of better digestion and weight loss.

With the festive season tempting us with parties and feasting opportunities, we will definitely need some of these cleansing juices to free our system from the overloading and calories, and to feel more energetic for our outings!

Mini Update: Theresa Beauty – Almost My Second Home!

theresa

This is my third and final mini post update on my slimming journey with Theresa Beauty! It’s now my third month visiting Theresa and I’m still faithfully going for my treatments 2-3x a week! My weight has dropped about 2-3kg since my first visit and it actually fluctuates a little (~ 200-500g), depending on whether my period is arriving, and whether I have my dinner (seriously!).

Through this slimming programme that Theresa had planned for me, I realized that dinner is what I call the “mover and shaker meal” and to lose weight, we really need to watch what we eat at night. Well, at least for me.

P6033525

This body-hugging dress used to be quite tight and the cutting is such that I often have to tug at the sleeves or adjust the hem to feel more at ease in it. Knowing that it wasn’t a comfortable piece to wear, I had thrown it into some obscure corner in my wardrobe until I decided to dig it up again to try it on recently. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it fits now! This only means that I have dropped a size or so and a few colleagues had also complimented this dress. YAYYYY!

A big THANK YOU to Theresa for the 3 month-long ambassadorship-sponsorship opportunity! From the bottom of my heart, I really appreciate your kind service and hospitality as well during each and every one of my treatment sessions, and I have also happily made friends with the lovely consultants-therapists like SK, Cindy, Felice, Candy etc. A few more weeks to go before the end of my journey here, I will miss you all!

SK, the manager at Toa Payoh outlet, will always remind me to detox with the organic fruit juices! They now form part of my staple diet and yes, I’ve grown to consume more fruits (refreshing, juicy and yet friendly to my waistline) instead of unhealthy junk food.

Mini Update: My Slimming Journey with Theresa Beauty

In my previous post, I had just begun my slimming journey with Theresa Beauty! Once again thank you Theresa for the generous sponsorship and genuine interest in helping me achieve my weight/fat loss goals, targeting specific problem areas which have been troubling me. I very much appreciate the assistance and dedication from Theresa to help me get back into shape for my modeling gigs and to look good in any clothing I like, given the fashion crazed person that I am!

In this update, I’ll be focusing on the treatments that I’ve enjoyed at Theresa over the past month or so.

Theresa’s Sauna Treatment

I tried the Sauna Treatment at Theresa – they are also called “sweat baths,” attributed to healing, preventative, and cleansing properties. Do you know that the sauna treatment is a tradition originated from over two thousand years ago? The originators, Finland-ers or Finns, actually attribute their endurance and longevity to the tradition of sauna!

Basically, what happens to the body during a sauna is that your metabolism and pulse rates increase, your blood vessels become much more flexible, and your extremities benefit from increased circulation. Exercise enthusiasts will probably recognize that some of these changes can only be achieved through strenuous exercise. Not to say that a sauna would put you in excellent physical condition without moving a muscle, but that it brings about the same metabolic results as physical exercise.

http://helenaswax.com/blog/images/blog/sauna/infrared-sauna-benefits.jpg

The effects of the sauna are numerous and varied. Proponents of dry heat bath mention a feeling of psychological peace and contentment as well as physical rejuvenation. Many people claim that the sauna relieves the symptoms of minor illnesses such as colds, revives the muscles after tough physical exertion, and clears the complexion. The sauna experience will often leave you feeling very much alive. Your senses will be sharpened, and your tactile sensitivity heightened.

Indeed, I emerged out of the sauna feeling relaxed and my body felt soothed and energized, as if after an exercise. It was pretty hot during that 10-15 minutes I was inside, but still bearable. The mini facility even had magazines inside for customers to browse through while “enduring” the heat. But it was definitely worthwhile, given the benefits 🙂

 Hot Blanket Treatment

The hot blanket slimming therapy generates sweating and opens the pores so the elements of the wraps can reach a deeper layer of the skin and helps to eliminate the fatty tissues. Theresa’s body wraps contain minerals, trace elements and vitamins which are indispensable for life and well-being. The detoxing and slimming effect of the selected ingrediants are combined with the benefits of the hot blanket for the more toned and firmed result.

Benefits

1. Detoxifies and burns fat

2. Quickens lipolysis. Remove unwanted fats in your Tummy, waist, hip and four limbs

3. Extracts waste from the body such as heavy metals, poisons etc

4. Speeds up metabolism and enhances absorption of nutrients

5. Acts as physical therapy for myalgia & neurosis. Balances the autonomic nervous system and has a beneficial effect on sore muscles, lactic acid and the liver

6. Improves the immune system and prevents growth of cancer cells

7. Diminishes inflammation

8. Speeds up metabolism so that improves functioning of organs, such as liver, intestine and stomach

9. Eliminate intense and pressure of life and promote working efficiency

10. Recuperates insufficiency physiological exercise, promotes sleep and sleepiness

11. Improve skin smoothness and fairness, resulting also to brighter skin

G5 VibroTrim Treatment

P4223159

Theresa’s G5 VibroTrim treatment can be used for a variety of uses, including stimulating the lymphatic system, which helps alleviate problems like puffy, fluid and swollen conditions in various parts of the body. It assists with the appearance of lumpy and congestion – your skin texture and appearance will be much smoother.

G5 VibroTrim treatment works on breaking down fatty deposits, cellulite and dispersing this with excess fluid through the lymphatic areas. This process allows an instant inch loss and a detox effect, as well as improvement in skin elasticity, collagen flow and blood circulation.

Theresa’s Body VibroTrim Gel contains natural herbal extracts with targeted properties. These help toprovide toning and firming of skin, cellulite and fatty tissues resulting in temporary but measurable reduction in body measurements making those “tight” clothes more comfortable.

A wonderful improvement in cellulite and texture of skin and elasticity and detox result will be felt and seen with instant inch loss, which means, benefits can be seen after the first treatment!

Will update again soon on my slimming programme with Theresa! So far I’ve lost about 1kg (not a dramatic loss as I’m already quite petite and it’s really about spot reduction) and I’m really excited to see this number grow! Though I’m still trying to get used to the low/no carbs and lots of fruits/vegetables/water diet, combined with Theresa’s organic juices 😉
