Is There A Natural Alternative To Plastic Surgery and Botox?

I love eating clean, raw foods. (My diet is 90-95% raw.)  I exercise faithfully, it's just one of my passions. But after two pregnancies, all that has not been able to restore the elasticity of my skin on my abdomen - until just recently.  I have been using a product that is clean ingredients-wise and infused with concentrated plant botanicals.  It has provided amazing results in tightening my skin.  I have not only tested the product on myself but on several others, all of whom have had positive results to varying degrees.  

I love the amazing power of plants and foods placed on this earth.  As a civilized people we have long sought to answer questions of health, healing and youthfulness.  Being civilized however has caused us to distance ourselves from the natural world.  If we return to nature and study it in depth perhaps we would find answers that would astound us.  We would be so far ahead in terms of healing.  I believe that most people just cannot accept that the lowly, humble plants and elements put forth by the natural world have any power at all in doing anything effectively.  So we have turned to conventional methods much to our detriment.  Don't get me wrong, there is obviously a place for surgery , drugs and modern medicine, but I believe that we shortchange ourselves when we don't look to natural methods first.

I am very excited about a company called It Works!  This company has developed a wrap called the Ultimate Body Applicator.  All I have to say is "Wow!"  Do me a favor and search "It Works! before and after photos" and be totally amazed. Here is an article about it I found online.  This company has been invited twice to the Oscars and Emmys and they have provided the wraps in the gifts bags the stars get to enjoy.  The wrap is made of a double layer, non woven cloth.  One side is impermeable and the other is absorbent and porous.  The absorbent part is saturated with a clean, botanically based cream.  Application of this wrap can be done by placing it on any part of your body you would like to treat, to firm, tighten and tone your skin.  With repeated applications of this wrap, some people have been able to achieve a leaner body and their results have been absolutely amazing.

The botanical cream of the wrap seeps in through the skin and latches onto the toxins in your body, allowing your body to release fat, resulting in a leaner body and minimized appearance of cellulite.  I imagine some may question, Why would you take a short cut and not just clean up your diet, exercise and do it the right way?  The way I see it, there is no reason why anyone couldn't do both.  Once people see what concentrated antioxidants can do through the skin, they may be inspired to give their bodies the absolute best, highest grade nutrition.  This can accelerate the process of achieving ideal weight and can tighten and tone your skin at the same time.

 From what I have seen, results vary from person to person.  One individual may have drastic results from the first application, while another may not see any difference until after the third or fourth application.  Approximately 70% of those who try this product will notice a difference with one application.  Another 20% will notice it with the second application.  The rest will notice it with the third and fourth application.   This product is detoxifying for the body so you will need to drink plenty of water when  you do the applications. Those who are constipated may want to deal with that problem  before trying this product. (It Works! has an herbal product called Regular which helps cleanse the bowel.)

Because I am so impressed with the products, I've decided to become an It Works! affiliate.  I love that their products do not have any harmful ingredients and are effective.  (The propolyne in this product is the same pharmaceutical grade ingredient that is used in surgical gloves and is contained in the impermeable backing of the wrap, and does not touch your skin.)   Here are my recommended fav's:

The first is the Ultimate Body Applicator with the Defining Gel (called the Wrap Pack).  The Defining Gel is what to use between applications and makes the Applicator more effective.  The Facial Applicator is formulated specifically for the skin on your face and Lifting Eye Cream helps to build the collagen in your skin and to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles.  Email me if you have any questions or if you want to learn how to try one for free if you live locally.  Enjoy 40% off retail pricing by becoming a "loyal customer" (option available while checking out). 

I believe that there are so many things that we could solve using natural ingredients.  Eating clean, live foods and moving our bodies is the first step.  Avoiding toxic ingredients and emotions is another.  Turning to natural methods is yet another important step.  So is there a natural alternative to plastic surgery and botox?  I believe that there is, it's called It Works!

Enjoy the Journey!
