Some Basic Health Tips

Your best protection is gaining knowledge and getting involved in your own health. Being sick and tired is not the natural process to getting older. Once you understand the principle of cell health, the whole concept of disease prevention and cure makes sense.

In 1993, Dr. Walter Willett, at Harvard's School of Public Health, said that at least half of all illnesses could be eliminated through changes in the diet. Here are some basic health tips to consider:
  • Eat primarily a vegetarian diet of organic, fresh and raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds
  • Eat meat no more than once per day – organic only if possible (no antibiotics or growth hormones)
  • Do not eat pork - pigs eat anything in its path, including its own feces
  • Do not eat shellfish (loaded with toxins) - eat only fish that have scales and fins
  • Eat foods high in fiber
  • Eventually eliminate white flour, dairy products, processed oils, and sugar (it feeds cancer)
  • Do not consume high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oil, aspartame, or MSG
  • Do not drink tap water with fluoride or chlorine - also consider buying a shower filter
  • Do not drink diet or regular soft drinks - they block calcium absorption and cause osteoporosis
  • Get 30 to 60 minutes of daily exercise by walking or using a rebounder (a mini-trampoline)
  • Consider purchasing a juicer and drink one to three glasses of freshly extracted juice daily
  • Check your body’s pH (alkaline vs. acidity) - cancer thrives in an acidic environment
  • Get more sunlight and try not to use sunglasses - you need the vitamin D
  • Ideally, get a full eight hours of solid, deep, restful sleep every night
  • Begin a high-quality, whole-food supplement program - consider BarleyLife Xtra from The AIM Companies.
I think Jack LaLanne said it best. He is ninety-one years-old, healthy and strong. He lifts weights and swims laps for two hours every morning - and doesn't get sick. Jack’s rule is: "If man made it, don’t eat it." That's basically the bottom line. What you put in your mouth, ideally, should be one hundred percent natural. In other words, try to avoid foods that come in a bag, box, or wrapper and are laced with preservatives.
