To Perfect Health
Our January newsletter covered the first three keys to improving our health.† Since that previous issue, Iíve uncovered some new material that will be included with some of the material covered in January..
1. Drink More Water
We all feel much better after a good bath or shower.† Itís even more important to keep our internal vital organs washed clean.† Our bodies know how to do this but only if it has enough water.† This doesnít mean just any liquid either.† It means pure clear water.† Water is required to bring nutrients to the cells as well as to carry toxins and waste from the body. The root cause of all illness is the buildup of toxins in some major organ in the body.† Without water itís impossible for the body to perform its natural functions.
This brings us to the second problem: finding a pure water source. †Water from your kitchen tap is far from pure in most cities.† More than 700 chemicals have been found in drinking water around the country, and the EPA has found 129 of these to be a serious risk to our health.† Interestingly, the EPA requires that municipalities test for only about 80% of these chemicals.
It appears that the best and cheapest way to get the purist water is through one of the better filters.† The cheaper, one-stage filters that you find in the discount houses will remove some of the pollutants but far from all.† You may pay $100 or more for the better filters, but you know you have good water, which isnít the case with cheap filters or any of the bottled waters.
The filtering system that I have installed in my home is called the BEV Water System.† It has a six stage filtering system including reverse osmosis and carbon filters.† This system does the best job of any filtering system Iíve been able to find after having tried many systems over the last ten years.† (The BEV water System may be purchased from Plexus, publishers of the highly recommended book Young Again by John Thomas, 1-800-659-1882 or 1885).
The second most important thing you can do for your physical well-being is exercise and it doesnít have to be strenuous or time consuming.† I spend about five minutes at a time, three times a day.† I feel three types of exercise are important for a well rounded program, and the total program requires only 15 minutes† A day, totalStress is a major cause of illness.† At the end of my workday, every muscle in my body is tense quite often to the point of exhaustion.† One of the most important exercises I do takes place immediately after work.† Stretching those tense muscles is the quickest way to reduce their stress.† I do a modified form of Yoga, then I lay down for a few minutes.† I may drift off and sleep for a brief period, but mostly, once Iíve done the exercises, Iím no longer tired.† I only spend five minutes on this exercise.
An exercise that is equally important is a form of aerobics.† The up and down motion of the body places gentle pressure on every organ in the body.† This action and the gentle pressure also acts as a pump for the Lymph system.† The heart is a pump that brings nutrients to the cells and carries away toxins.† The lungs pump oxygen to the cells and remove Carbon dioxide.† The cells deposit accumulated toxins into a network called the Lymph system.† The Lymph system has no pump.† The only way the Lymph system can remove toxins is through proper movements of the physical body.
Jogging, aerobics and rebounding (bouncing on a trampoline) are some of the best methods for pumping the Lymph system.† I do the rebounding because of the potential damage to the leg joints on impact with a sidewalk or floor.† Every morning before I go to work, I do rebounding on a small trampoline in my bedroom for about five minutes.
When most people hear the word diet they think about eating the foods that contain all of the nutrients required to maintain the bodyís health.† This is only one aspect of diet.† The second and most important aspect of diet is eating foods that have the least amount of toxins or elements your body canít use and will end up having to flush from the body.† The fewer elements you ingest that the body canít use and must flush out, the more energy the body will have to use for pain-free physical activity and maintaining overall health.
Unfortunately, most foods today take more energy to process than is provided to the body by the food being ingested.† Raw fruits seem to give me more energy than any other food.† It is easily digested, plus it has its own enzymes to help with the process of digestion.† As our bodies grow older, they no longer produce all of the enzymes needed for proper digestion of the foods we eat.† Most processed foods that we ingest are seldom digested sufficiently enough to extract needed nutrients.† The body spends all of its energy trying to break solid foods down and then getting rid of unneeded byproducts.
Eating habits are often to blame for this.† Many naturopathic dietitians insist that 80% of the digestive process takes place in the mouth.† In order for the body to digest food properly, they say, it must receive the food in a liquefied form.†† This is seldom possible without sufficient chewing.
Occasionally, I will watch patrons in a restaurant to see how many times they chew a steak or other solid.† The count seldom goes over 10 chews.† Is steak, or any other solid food, liquefied after 10 chews?† Probably not.† That body is probably getting little or no health benefit from its food.
I am absolutely convinced that, if given half a chance, the body will heal itself.† It doesnít even need our help.† All we must do is get out of its way.† First of all, this means stop putting all of that toxic food into our bodies.
If I have a chronic or serious physical problem, the best way I know to assure a recovery is through fast or abstinence.† There are a broad variety of approaches to reducing food intake.
A. A total fast or total abstinence except water for a day or more.
A juice fast
taking only juices for 7 to 10 days.
C. The Apple vinegar and honey fast for 7 to 10 days.
D. The Lemon juice fast with maple syrup and cayenne pepper.
E. A fruit fast eating only fresh fruit and raw nuts for 7 to 10 days.
If I have chronic pain that wonít go away, I do one of the above fasts for as long as it takes to get rid of the problem.† The cells in my body have never failed me.
Another aspect of diet is change.† The body is constantly changing.† As we grow older, as our habits and lifestyles change, when we go through cycles of more, then less, exercise, food intake requirements also change.†††† Carbohydrates give the body energy.† If we go through a cycle where a lot of physical exercise is required, we will need more carbohydrates.† If you ingest a lot of carbohydrates and donít exercise, you will find yourself falling asleep long before itís bedtime.† Why?† Because the body is attempting to correct the imbalance created by suddenly ingesting unneeded sugar (converted from carbohydrates) by injecting an excess of insulin..
This is only one aspect
of maintaining balance in the physical system.† To Maintain that feel-good
state of high energy under all conditions, diet must constantly be evaluated
Do the foods that we eat have sufficient nutrients to supply the body with what it needs?† Rodale, the leading advocate of organic gardening, has conducted extensive research into the nutrients in todayís foods as compared to 50 years ago before commercial farming was introduced using chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.† Rodale has found that modern commercial farming methods produce food that is grown in soils that are toxic and severely deficient in the trace elements needed for healthy, nutrient-filled plants.† When the vital trace elements such as copper, boron, iron, magnesia and zinc are absent from the soil, the plants grown in such soil will be deficient in nutrients.† Modern commercial methods use chemical fertilizers that usually replace only Nitrogen, Potash and Phosphorous.
Organic farming methods usually do replace the trace elements in the soil through various composting methods or using organic fertilizers.† Rodale has shown that organic foods do contain many of the nutrients that are absent in commercial produce.† Many of the smaller commercial farms are beginning to use organic methods because of the growing demand and the higher financial return.† The added benefit of organic produce is: higher nutritional value and little or no pollution.† Organic produce is the recommended alternative to supplements.
Since many of us do not have easy access to organic produce or cannot afford to pay the extra cost, can use quality supplements extracted from organic foods.† Supplements produced in a laboratory often cannot be used by the body and in some cases can actually be harmful.† A good supplement produced from whole foods is highly advisable.
After much testing I have determined the proper supplements to take for maintaining good balance in my own body.† This may not apply for everyone, but itís a good start for someone just beginning supplements.
1. Try to take the Minimum Daily Requirement (MDR) of all the vitamins.
2. Take a good colloidal mineral supplement.
3. Many of us need higher quantities of some minerals like Calcium., so I take a good Calcium supplement which also includes Magnesium, Manganese, and Vitamin D which are needed for proper Calcium absorption.
Once again we have to
test our bodies constantly to determine how much† is needed.† When you feel good with a specific combination
of foods and supplements, stick with it till you stop feeling good.
5. Clean Air
This area is every bit as important as any other factor, since without oxygen, we die.† Our planet has less than half the oxygen in the air we breathe than we had 100 years ago.† Thousands of acres of trees and forests are destroyed every year.† Ninety percent of them are never replaced by the lumber companies that destroy them.† Trees are a major source for oxygen.† Burning fossil fuels, besides polluting the air, removes mass quantities of oxygen.† As most of us are aware, our beautiful planet is in crisis trying to deal with our abuses.
In spite of this high level of pollution in our outdoor environment, our indoor environment is even more polluted.† Pollution inside of our homes has many sources: Bacteria from molds and mildew wherever moisture accumulates in the home, chemical fumes from all detergents and cleaners (unless you are using Miracle II products), air freshener (can be highly toxic), cigarette smoke (contains nearly 1000 chemicals), animal hair and dander, combustion of any fuel from your furnace, gas log or wood-burning fireplace, fumes from paints, solvents and pesticides, and there can be fumes from your furniture, carpets and even the building itself.
Besides petitioning congress, there are things we can do to minimize the effects of air pollution on our health.† One thing is to purchase a good air purifier and oxygenator.† Many of our appliance stores have them.† I purchased one many years ago that removes pollution from the air, but does nothing to replace the oxygen.† I usually keep a lot of plants in my house in the winter time that help.† Certain plants also help to remove pollution from the air like.† These include: Golden Pathos, Philodendron and Spider Plants.†
Electrical storms generate ozone when lightening strikes.† The chemical symbol for ozone is O3, meaning it is made up of one atom of oxygen (O2) with one extra, less stable atom of oxygen.† This extra atom will eventually break loose from oxygen and become an ion.† So this results in more oxygen in the air plus air-cleaning ions.† The Ions attach themselves to polluting particles and odors thus making them harmless.† I have been testing this unit for several weeks now and have been quite impressed thus far.
The product I am testing is called Lightening Air by Purity products (1-800-791-1992).† Lightening Air creates a process similar to that of Mother Nature when generating ozone.† We all know what the air smells like after a thunderstorm.† My rooms are beginning to smell similar to this since I've been using Lightening Air.
We need oxygen because
every cell in our body will die without it.†
A number of supplements on the market are also effective in making
oxygen available to the cells.† One
of the best I've found is a liquid called Hydroxygen.† Just put a few drops in each glass of water
you drink.† This is another way of purifying
your water as well as getting more oxygen to your cells.† I've decided to make Hydroxygen
available through Future Technologies.
6. Electromagnetic Environ.
Electromagnetic pollution is a subject that this newsletter has covered in the past.† But I believe it is important enough to mention it again.
Every function of our bodies, from heartbeat to motor skills, is dependent upon very subtle electrical signals from the brain.† I am convinced that these very subtle signals are being disrupted by all forms of electromagnetic transmissions from radio, television, microwave, cell phone, etc.
I am also convinced that my body can heal itself if I give it half a chance.† What if I had cancer or heart disease, for example?† Suppose the brain is alerted to this problem and sends electrical signals to correct the problem, but those signals are disrupted by a microwave or TV transmission?† Maybe the signal is distorted and gives the wrong message, or even destroyed completely.† The healing doesn't take place.† I am also convinced that these transmissions are causing the escalation of many of the serious illnesses the world is currently experiencing.†
The electromagnetic field that surrounds our bodies is called our aura. This is the only protection we have from the harmful energies around us, since the natural energy of the earth has grown too weak and polluted so that it offers little help.† The practice of meditation can strengthen this protection and is highly advisable for spiritual as well as physical health.
For the last 15 years
Future Technologies has made the Clarus products
available to the general public that also offers protection.† These are the products that offer protection
from many of these transmissions.† The
Q-Link, for example, is designed to strengthen the personal aura.† Other Clarus products
build an electronic protection dome around the home similar to the electronic
shield produced by the Star ship
Attitude is being addressed last of all even though I am feeling more and more that attitude may play an even more important role than all of the above.† I say this because of what I have read as well as my own personal experience.† Since I do consider this so important, the entire next issue will be devoted to attitude and how to change it.
Therefore, in the next issue, I will answer questions like:† How can I banish fear from my life: Fear of illness, fear of pain, and even fear of death?† How can I avoid emotions that cause illness, like anger, depression, anxiety and fear?† Why has emotion been called the most devastating component of poor health?
