Heaven Ministries is pleased to offer you a natural line of health and beauty products. These are fabulous products because they are made from all natural ingredients and they really work!! I have tried the "Ultimate Body Wrap" on myself and lost 3-inches over a 72 hour period. I also felt tighter in my stomach with just one application! You only have to wear the wrap for one hour because the herbs keep working in your system up to 72 hours after you wear it.
A friend of mine, Kathy who is the moderator for our new forum says that her wrinkles are disappearing from using the wrinkle repair cream just a few times!! Other women I have talked with love the age defining gel, which reduces wrinkles, repairs stretch marks and cellulite.
Almost everyone I have talked to, who has tried the body wrap has lost at least two inches just from wearing it only one time. Several applications a month is recommended for best results. The Ultimate Body Wrap cleanses the system, breaking up fat cells (cellulite) under the skin--this is how it repairs cellulite. See the before and after pictures of the Ultimate Body Wrap at work.
I started this forum as a place where we can gather and get encouraged in our weight loss journey. But leave it to me...I have added 7 new areas of health that Kathy and I would like to share with you all. Besides that I need encouraged myself sometimes. Fat Busters forum is a place where I want everyone to feel comfortable sharing their weight loss tips and avenues to good health, or where you would like some support and tips for yourselves.
Kathy, the moderator of
the forums is a wonderful gal and mother with two small sons...she is
trying to lose a few pounds, (aren't we all) and find encouragement and
tips from others as well. Kathy also shares her weight lifting
secrets to getting a lean and mean body for women. So don't be shy...our
new community needs you to be a part of it so we
can begin to share what we know with each other. Blessings! :-) A.
Resentment is a very powerful emotion. In fact,
anyone who harbors this terrible emotion shouldn’t be trying to make
rational decisions for themselves or their marriage. I would even venture
to say that most divorces are because of unmet and unfulfilled emotions,
which is what this emotion is!! It can literally control a person—what
they say—what they do—and how they behave. Unfulfilled people are the
biggest resentment holders because they don’t speak up assertively to
get their needs met.
How do I know all this? I used to play the bitterness
game many years ago when I was still absorbed in my self and alcoholism. I
was also addicted to my feelings and manipulating and controlling others
using my negative feelings. Whenever I felt slighted by my husband I would
hold it against him with resentment and unforgiveness.
Fortunately I figured out that I was only hurting
myself with my bitter feelings and that I was the cause of my own negative
feelings of ill will. It doesn’t matter what someone else says and does,
what matters is how we react. So how did I figure it out? I prayed about
it over and over again.
One day I just woke up with a different attitude. I
now know that God blessed me with knowledge that I did not have before. He
gave me wisdom that before I was not ready for because I couldn’t see
wisdom. I didn’t want to see it. I was too selfish to realize my own
faults. I can say this with much confidence because I used to be a
resentment propagator. I didn’t know how to react to other people’s
behavior toward me.
My daughter, if you accept my words and store up my
commands within you, turning you ear to wisdom and applying your heart to
understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for
understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as
for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and
find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth
come knowledge and understanding. (Proverbs 2:1-6)
You see your spouse can’t make you feel
resentful—you do that to yourself.
The more you harbor ill will towards your spouse, the more
difficult it will be for you to see reality—to see the big picture of
things. Holding in negative feelings within your spirit creates sin in
your life. Resentful feelings tell your mind what to do, how to believe,
and how to behave towards your spouse. It may tell you to get a divorce.
Perhaps it tells you to look at pornography. You
think it is justified because your wife rejects you often. Or perhaps you
think it is ok to have an affair because your husband did it. Or it can
tell you to be ugly and mean with your spouse because you feel like
behaving that way. Resentment is a negative emotion that will tear your
marriage apart until there is nothing left to repair. Resentment told me
to drank, so I drank away my miserable feelings.
Some people are more prone to holding in resentment
than others. It doesn’t make them bad people. It just means they have
not learned how to handle this particular emotion. They have not accepted
Gods words of wisdom.
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who
gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to
him. (James 1:5)
So what kinds of people are prone to harboring
Anyone can learn to free themselves of this terrible emotion and be content from within, no matter what others around them are doing or how they are behaving. Understand that “you cannot control another persons behavior”, even if it is your own spouse! You have to get it in your mind that many aspects of life are not in your power to control. But you can control “how you react” to your spouse’s behavior.
Secondly, you have to speak up when your spouse says
or does something that is offensive. You still can’t control or change
them, but you can let them know when they have trespassed against your
spirit. How will they know any other way? Do you think that if you treat
them back with a bad attitude that is going to help? I don’t think so.
Learn to be nicely assertive about how you feel. Then treat your spouse
back in a good and productive way. Get creative with your attitude.
Don’t put your feelings on the back burner—bad
idea. I know first hand that when we put our feelings on the back burner
they mount up more and more negative garbage. If you are a woman reading
this then you know that when your monthly rolls around hormones can
literally get the best of our emotions. Do you want to contend with back
burner resentment too?
Get past issues off your chest. Pray about it and ask
God to give you the knowledge to understand yourself better. Understand
that you are only damaging your own spirit through your own negative
emotions. God will help you to feel better about yourself, spouse and
marriage when you put your trust and faith in Him. He will allow
your heart to be free of the burden of unforgiveness. Look for the hidden
treasure of wisdom and God will bless you. Believe that!
The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. (James 3:17)
Fat that is stored inside the body shows up on the
outside in the form of cellulite. Fat
can be eliminated forever through the eating of natural, wholesome foods,
body toning, and detoxification. But you already knew that, right? Losing
fat and the appearance of cellulite is something that takes several
different types of natural remedies at once.
Let’s start with food. Natural food is any food
that has not be denatured by factories and manufacturing plants. An
example is what they do with sugar and flour. Both of these cause fat and
cellulite to grow inside and outside our body. Raw bees honey, natural
maple syrup, dried fruit sugars, and the herb Stevia do not cause harm to
the body. Eat these wholesome sugars until your heart and mind is content.
Do not give honey to a child under the age of two.
Whole-wheat flour, brown rice, rolled oats,
popcorn, barley, millet, cornmeal, and legumes and peas can all be eaten
extravagantly and you’ll still lose weight and fat. Throw out the lean
cuisine for the curried lentils and rice. Toss out the hot pockets for the
beans and cornbread. Opt for leaner meats like poultry and fish instead of
beef and pork. Eat and be happy with yourself after you eat. No need to
feel guilty when you eat food that gives your body nourishment.
Natural foods burn off the body through normal
every-day activities such as house cleaning, walking, swimming,
calisthenics, and believe it or not, even while sleeping.
Refined food products that are prepackaged and made with
hydrogenated oils do not burn off as readily and efficiently as their
whole food counterparts. These foods create fat cells to grow in our body
faster than we can burn them off. The
solution to slimming down is to start cooking with whole, natural food
So choosing to eat right with normal activity, plus
detoxifying the system with a natural herbal wrap will make you feel and
look your best. The herbal wrap helps to heal the skin and produce a
tighter, toner and firmer affect wherever you decide to apply it on your
body. The wrap also detoxifies the body, which often results in inch loss
as your body flushes out toxins. The herbal ingredients continue to work
for 72 hours after you have applied the wrap so you may continue to see
progressive results over this time.
Losing weight or maintaining ideal weight should be a
lifestyle. Diets don’t work. The most important aspect about losing
weight is to never rely on just one solution to do the job. You can
exercise all day long but if you are eating the wrong kinds of food you
will have skin problems, whether it is cellulite, wrinkles, bulging tummy,
or unhealthy skin tone. Several lifestyle changes are needed to look and
feel great and to be the best you can be, not just physically but
spiritually and mentally as well.
Eating a good daily diet is not enough if you want to
maintain muscle tone. Even skinny people have cellulite. Brisk walking is
a great cardio activity that most people can apply into their daily
lifestyle and it is so good for your health. Grab a friend and walk for
your health! So for beautiful looking skin exercise, eat right and detox
with the herbal wrap.
The natural ingredients in the herbal wrap work to break up the fat cells inside your body, which will then travel through the lymphatic channels, where finally the toxins will be eliminated through your bowels and kidneys. The wrap is considered to be a mild form of liposuction. The great thing about it is the wrap is easy and safe to use.
