Reduce the quantity of processed foods you consume. There are hidden sugars and fats, plus lots of chemical additives you’ll want to avoid. Read labels – if you need a science degree to understand the ingredients you probably shouldn’t eat it.
Reduce your salt intake, use only natural quality salt which is chemical free and contains minerals.
Add flavor with herbs, spices or lemon juice instead of adding salt.
Reduce you fat intake. Consume only healthy fats. Learn more about dietary fats
Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Reduce the quantity of meat you consume. Look at the portions on your plate – make sure vegetables make up 75%.
Don’t wait until you get symptoms of illness. Prevention is always better than cure.
Your best health insurance is to take good care of your body. Nourish your body with nutrients from natural superfoods and energized water. Detoxify to reduce the toxic load on your cells. Alkalize yourself by creating your personal firewall against an acidic body.
What do you do if you, or someone you know has become ill? I would recommend the following:-
Aim to detoxify by:-
Drinking lots ofHexagon Energized water to properly hydrate your cells with water at the correct pH.
Taking lots ofChlorella to provide nutrients PLUS chlorella binds with and eliminate toxins
Plus, eat as many raw foods as you can, preferably organically grown. Check out the nutrition in fruit and vegetables by downloading you free chartsHERE. Find out more about the phyto-nutrients in fruit and vegetablesHERE
Get some Vitamin D – have your 15 minutes of sun exposure per day.
Breathe pure air, get an air purifier for your home. Did you know that the air inside your home is often more polluted than the air outside?

3,500 years ago, a few winemakers made a mistake while making wine. The wine turned sour, resulting in the birth of vinegar. From that time onwards, vinegar has been used as a seasoning for food.
The Chinese discovered the goodness of vinegar long ago as a seasoning in food preparation. As vinegar became more widely used, its positive effects on health were quickly established when it was found to improve energy, prevent cold, and relieve aches and gastric pain.
The ancient Chinese used vinegar in their secret remedies; some of the countries in ancient times started using vinegar to maintain health and beauty. The last Egyptian Queen, Cleopatra used crushed pearls in vinegar as part of her skin care regime , and her flawless skin even at the hour of her death is attributed to this amazing concoction.
In some other countries said to be susceptible to plagues and epidemics, people believe that drinking vinegar can strengthen their immune system.
In line with the advance of medical science, many countries are progressively researching the medical properties of vinegar. The research results firmly establish vinegar’s pharmacological mechanism and its efficacy. There are numerous experts on vinegar in Japan alone, and many well-known pharmaceutical companies around the world, such as Roche, are actively involved in researching the extraction of the active compounds from vinegar. The benefits of vinegar have stood the test of time, and emerged stronger than ever! QUICK LINK TO THE SOLUTION & FAQS
We are alkaline creatures who require slightly alkaline blood pH of 7.35 to 7.45 to allow correct oxygenation of our blood so the body’s vital processes can function properly. A reading above or below this range means our body is under stress, leading to illness, disease or worse.
Normal blood pH has a very small window of acid/alkaline pH balance.
How does an acidic pH occur? From the foods we eat, (poor diet and acidic food), water, stress, intake of toxins, poor immune system. An acidic balance decreases the body’s ability to absorb nutrients and decreases the body’s ability to detoxify, leading to an impaired immune system. Plus your reserves of minerals will be depleted as your body tries to compensate for an acidic pH by using up your reserves of alkaline minerals.
It is important to understand that the pH thing is not just a piece of fancy chemistry we don’t need to worry too much about. Here are just three simple reasons why:
If our body pH sinks below 4.0. we die.
Bacteria, viruses, fungi and all disease-producing organisms flourish in an acidic medium and die in alkaline conditions. The same is true of Cancer cells. So once our body pH starts to drop below neutral, we are opening the door for disease right there.
All the many Enzymes required for every function in our bodies will not work under acid conditions.
So if we keep our body fluids alkaline, we are setting up the first line of defence against disease and aging.
Tonight I had the pleasure of attending a presentation by Dr TC Choo, Doctor of Naturopathy & Nutrition Counselling. Dr Choo has years of experience in the field of natural medicine, and he’s a lot of fun too. It’s late here but I just couldn’t wait to post an update.
The main topic of Dr Choo’s presentation was Cell Rejuvenation for Optimal Health.
It’s obvious to all that increasing rates of diabetes, heart disease and cancer are affecting younger people. More young people are getting “old age” diseases.
Why? It all begins in our cells. Degeneration at a cellular level is rampant. It’s simple really. We are made up of cells. Our bodies have more than 70 trillion cells. And we’re under attack.
What’s attacking us?
Accumulation of Toxins
Free Radical Damage
Acid/Alkaline Food Balance
Our bodies have a constant battle to protect us from damage, cell degeneration, which leads to illness, disease or just feeling too stressed or unwell to cope.
However, there are natural ways to combat these attacks.
Nn Wheatgrass Powder for Optimal Health – Certified Organic
For optimum health, maintaining a healthy acid-alkaline balance is crucial.
Premature aging and degeneration of bodily functions can be attributed to toxic levels of acidity in the body. This improper balance is due largely to the types of food we eat. Meats, sugars, legumes, grains, and nuts; and processed, refined, baked, and fried foods produce acidic residues after digestion and assimilation. Since many of us eat bread, rice, noodles, chicken, beef, fish, cakes, and more, over time, acid-alkaline imbalance may result in:
Impoverished vitality, fatigue and tiredness
Muscle and back aches; joint pains
Body odor and bad breath
Dull, dry skin
Premature appearance of wrinkles and lines
Susceptibility to infections
Wheatgrass, from the family of cereal grasses, is a wholesome food with alkaline characteristics to correct and adjust acid-alkaline imbalance and maintain an alkaline state required by cells for optimum health.
Nn Wheatgrass Powder uses organically grown young shoots of wheatgrass harvested when levels of nutrients and plant compounds are at their peak. The production process retains all the vital nutrients – vitamins, alkaline minerals, enzymes, chlorophyll, amino acids, antioxidants and fiber. The easily digestible form allows your body to fully integrate and utilize the health-building nutrients it provides. Fructose, a natural sugar found in fruits and honey, is added to improve its taste.
Nn Wheatgrass Powder is a wholesome food for children, breastfeeding and pregnant mothers. For the obese, nutrient-rich Wheatgrass Powder can assist in weight loss; it discourages overeating because the rapid digestion and assimilation curbs hunger pangs.
Directions: Dissolve one packet in a cup (200 x 250ml) of water or your favorite juice. Do not use hot water as heat destroys the vital nutrients and enzymes. For best results, take
2 – 3 packets daily on an empty stomach. If you experience troublesome symptoms of acidity (fatigue, sleep problems, headaches, etc), you should take more packets daily.
Content: 5 g x 30 packets
Nature’s Restorer of Acid-alkaline Balance Dr. Ann Wigmore, author of The Wheatgrass Book, has recorded countless testimonies on the alkalizing, cleansing, energizing and building effects of wheatgrass. Fiber-rich wheatgrass contains amino acids, vitamins, alkaline minerals, trace elements, enzymes, antioxidants, chlorophyll and plant compounds. Alkaline minerals in wheatgrass improve the transportation of oxygen, helping body systems function at an optimum level in a highly oxygenated environment. The cleansing and regenerative effects of chlorophyll dislodge acidic waste that clings to cells, tissues and organs and purifies the bloodstream. As a result, you look and feel younger, trimmer and healthier.
Important Enzymes and Antioxidants in Wheatgrass & their Functions
