One might flip a coin or go along with a hunch, however a powerful way to make a good decision is having it knowledge based. Often times when one goes to a doctor, they want a second opinion. If you go to another individual with similar education and experience, it isn't a second opinion. It's a second person with the same opinion. If one truly wants a second opinion, they might find another doctor with a different education, perhaps naturopathic, oriental, or homeopathic medicine. While they still treat they body, their approach is different. This is a valid second opinion, and one worth considering.

There are four components to making knowledge based decisions. When one is looking into health programs, having an educated background helps to make a better decision. Therefore, it is important to know who we are listening to. In health, practitioners apply "due diligence" to a situation. This educated opinion may hold more knowledge than someone that just jumps to the newest approach. So who do you listen to?

Many people struggle with obesity and comment, "Nothing works." When the best approach for them might not be the method they've applied. Weight loss can be put in three categories: restriction of calories, restriction of carbohydrates, or restriction of fat grams. Of course an increase in exercise helps the process. Any of the above methods can work, but which one will work best for you while still having an adequate level of nutrients to nourish each and every cell.

The second component to decision making is two fold: what effort are you willing to put in to learn and are you willing to make changes based on this knowledge. One might look at a particular program or procedure with a snarl on their face and the thought, "I'd never do that." Yet, when push comes to shove, one often does things because of pain, disease or fear of more severe consequences.

Let's look at cleansing. While many people spend considerable time with external things like bathing, washing their hair and brushing teeth; do they also spend an equal effort on internal cleansing? Do they even know it's possible and what benefits are achieved? One can cleanse the colon, liver and gall bladder, kidney and bladder, lymph system, and other glands and organs. How does one decide what to do, how often, and in what order?

Knowing what to do can make the experience easy and relatively pleasant. The best place to start is with the colon since this is the primary detoxification channel for elimination of solid wastes. Think of it this way: Don't clean the kitchen if the garbage disposal doesn't work.  If one suspects they have parasites, this can be done at the same time.  Most parasites have a life cycle of 21 days, so it is important to address the parasite cleanse for at least that long. It is important to have the colon working efficiently and effectively before proceeding to the liver.

To evaluate what to cleanse, one must know where they are. It is much like reading a map, if you don't know where you are and where you want to go, one can't decide on the roads to take to get there. So in your evaluation, look at the kind of struggles you deal with on a daily or weekly basis. If bowel elimination isn't daily (preferably several times) then one needs to cleanse and regenerate the bowel. If one is exposed to chemicals (like ink, paint, epoxy, hair and nail chemicals) there is a greater need to support the liver with cleansing. When there are weaknesses in the immune system, one can address the lymphatic system. Know where you are, and then determine where you want to be: set a goal of improved health.

No matter what one may face, using knowledge as a tool to make decisions can make a difference in the effectiveness of the chosen path.
