The Phytozyme Cure – Review & Giveaway – CLOSED

by MARIA on February 2, 2011

I’m not sure how I feel about New Year’s resolutions – mostly because I suck at actually sticking to them.

Having said that, I have every intention (every year) to make real, positive changes, and they almost always involve my diet. If intentions counted for something, I would be really skinny right now. Sadly, intention is nothing without follow through – gets me every time.

The lovely Mom Central Canada offered me the chance to check out a new book by Dr. Michelle Schoffro Cook, called The Phytozyme Cure, and I jumped at it for several reasons. As I get older, I am really interested in learning more about healthier, more natural options to being and staying healthy. I am one of those people that HATE taking pills or any time of medicine, and unless absolutely necessary, I completely avoid them. So I wanted to read about healthier alternatives to feeling better.

In this groundbreaking book, award-winning natural health expert Dr. Michelle Schoffro Cook introduces Phytozyme Therapy – a revolutionary all-natural diet and nutrition based plan that combines the healing powers of phytonutrients and enzymes to strengthen our immune systems, protect our bodies from disease, and even reverse the signs of aging.

The first part of the books outlines what phytonutrients are, the different types and their benefits. Benefits listed include:

o Faster healing

o Improved energy

o Greater mental clarity

o Increased resistance to illness

o Enhanced immune functioning

o Accelerated weight loss

o A more youthful appearance

The second part of the book lists specific health conditions, from arthritis to skin conditions, and how the Phytozyme Therapy can help. I shared the book with my mom who suffers from arthritis among other things, and she’s going to be trying to adapt the dietary suggestions to help with her symptoms, and I’m hoping they help her – we’ll see what happens with some time.

I would so love to win this book. Yes, I made a resolution and it was to be healthier, try to excercise and eat healthier, but bc o health issues I haven’t been able to excercise and bc of that I get down and turn to food. Soon though I will have answers and plan on doing videos at home, but again, that’s the PLAN lol.

I made a resolution to lose weight by exercising regularly. Not going great, but that’s mostly because of ever lasting sickness.

DH & I agreed to limit our take out dining to once a week so we could eat healthier. It went great for a week, then he decided to reno the kitchen. Goodbye stove, sink, and oven. It made preparing food difficult. We ate a LOT of take out.
Kitchen is done, finally. We eat very well now. If I even look at a chicken nugget again, it will be too soon.

I made the resolution to stop resolving to be skinny and workout – I do this every year. I am going to put that energy into being a positive helpful person. I want to enjoy health and the health of others. I resolve to stop resolving!

I made one resolution this year and it was to be my own cheerleader and to stop criticizing myself! I will lose weight and if I miss a gym visit I will just go tomorrow and not defeat myself for missing one day! First way to take care of myself is appreciating myself!

I started doing weight watchers 4 weeks ago. I am down 7 lbs so far, but have been bad this week. I also want to start eating mostly organic as I am a new mom and terrified of all the crazy chemicals out there!

I made a resolution to stop worrying so much about my actual weight and to focus more on just living a more active, healthier life. That being said, I just ate a handful of chocolate covered ju-jubes … although I am eating more vegetables and cutting down on my Coke Zero consumption!

My resolution this year was to live a more active lifestyle & prepare healthier meals for my family. I was recently diagnosed with RA, and would love to see what this book recommends! I dread the day I will have to take medication.

I made the usual resolution to eat healthier and workout more, I know, I know, everyone does that. But, except for a few bumps along the way so far so good. I am making it to the gym 4 – 5 times a week and by focussing on healthier fare have dropped almost 8 pounds. I feel better, look better and am so looking forward to spring this year!

I made a few resolutions this year. One being to read more. Since the beginning of January I have read a total of 7 books!

(First, yes – I rt’d your tweet. Fingers crossed for the contest.)
I made resolutions for family challenges – to see who could sustain the longest streak ( measured by consecutive days) for: working out on the WiiFit, min. 20 min/day, and for flossing teeth.

The WiiFit challenge was just for DH and I – so far, I’m the winner at 18 consecutive days. Took a break, back on it today, to try for 21.

The tooth flossing is the whole family, since we’ve got 8yos who were formerly not interested in flossing regularly. Now they’re into it for the contest/challenge :-)

I purposely did not set resolutions which could be broken by falling off the wagon once or slipping up. It’s about forward momentum…
