Needing a health reboot? Is Dry July the answer?

At this time of year you might be contemplating “Dry July”. You might think that 30 days of no alcohol (or even no chocolate) will make you healthy again. My big question is WHY DRY JULY? If you are doing it to get healthy – will these simple changes actually make you healthy again? How hard will it be to follow a diet where two of the food and beverage items used to overcome low energy, low self-esteem or bad cravings are simply removed with nothing new added in their place? And shouldn’t you be doing something that’s sustainable so you can affect your health over the longer term – not just look for a short term fix? So what do I suggest instead? Well – rather than just remove these items – why don’t you try putting in some good STUFF instead? I suggest you try nutritional cleansing. It’s risk free with a full money back guarantee if you are not happy with your results or the products within the first 30 days. I’ll bet you never need to consider ‘Dry July’ again!
