Hunza People Live Long, Healthy Lives

Long lived people like the Hunza’s of Northern Pakistan have the benefit of naturally occurring mineral rich, alkaline hexagonal water.

This article was  originally published by The Hunza Times – http://hunzatimes.wordpress.com/2009/01/26/what-is-alkaline-water-the-hunza/.

“One of the longest-lived races of people in the world is called the Hunza. This people, located in northern Pakistan, are found in several high altitude mountain valleys. Many Hunza claim to be 150 years old; many others are documented centenarians (over age one hundred). For many years, scientists have pondered the mystery of what makes them long lived, and also what makes them so healthy, for they rarely suffer the diseases the rest of us know so well.

People may remember the famous Frank Capra movie ” Lost Horizon” starring Ronald Coleman. The premise of the movie found a group of airline passengers stranded high up in the Himalayas, and the people they encountered.

The people they met were based loosely on the Hunza tribe, and the remarkable thing about them was they did not appear to age, and that they knew no disease

Some researchers are beginning to believe that the Hunza miracle derives from the water that they drink. The mountain water that flows into the Hunza villages comes from the surrounding glaciers. Structured hexagonally, this water is filled with mineral solutes, and it tests out as highly alkaline.

As we have said before, the body uses the bloodstream/system to dispose of wastes; these are removed in liquid form, and are often deposited in the lungs and kidneys. If there are too many wastes to handle, they are deposited in various organ systems, like the heart, or the pancreas, or the liver, or the colon, or in other locations. Sometimes these wastes are left on the walls of arteries, and over the years can spread throughout the body.

The breakdown of this disposal process, especially of acid wastes, is how we define the aging process. To slow down and reverse this direction, one must begin removing acid wastes from the body.

The best way we have found to do this is to drink alkaline water. This water, having a pH of between 9 and 11, will first neutralize harmful stored acid wastes, and if you consume it every day, will gently remove them from your body. Yet, since the water is ionized, it will not leach out valuable alkaline minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium or sodium.

Japanese doctors have treated their patients for over four decades with alkaline water. They believe that the immune system loses its power to throw off disease when the body becomes too acidic. They advocate drinking alkaline water, and eating alkaline forming food.

Asian medicine assigns two categories to human disease: communicable and adult. Viruses and bacteria cause contagious or communicable diseases. Influenza, the common cold, aids, plagues, all fall into this category, and medical doctors are quite proficient at treating them.

Adult diseases include heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, gout, arthritis, kidney disease, hemorrhoids, and asthma. Hay fever, allergies, obesity, tooth and gum disease, skin disorders, and many others.”


How To Avoid A Toxic Colon With Enzymes

I have something very unpleasant to tell you about your colon.

 

If you’re like the average person you may have a toxic build-up of putrefied matter trapped in and fouling your colon.

Nasty Build Up in Your Colon
Nasty Build Up in Your Colon

This nasty toxic matter (which could weigh up to 10 pounds) prevents proper absorption of nutrients, as well as poisoning your body. The toxic build-up is so bad for you on so many levels I don’t quite know where to start.

So, how about at the top?
A build-up of toxic waste in your colon can cause conditions like:-

  • Hair loss
  • Insommnia
  • Headaches, fatigue, decreased energy
  • Acne
  • Poor memory and concentration
  • Bad smelling breath and belching
  • Allergies
  • Impaired immune system causing reduced resistance to infections
  • Digestive problems
  • Heartburn
  • Indigestion
  • Bloating
  • Protruding stomach
  • Body aches and pains
  • Backache
  • Weight gain
  • Difficulty losing weight
  • Low sex drive and poor sexual performance
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea…

The list goes on, including, unfortunately, colo-rectal cancer. In short, a toxic colon is a major factor in chronic illness.

Dr. Norman Walker, author of  Colon Health Key to Vibrant Life
says, “The very best of diets can be no better than the very worst, if the sewage system of the colon is clogged with a collection of waste and corruption.” Dr. Norman W. Walker is recognized throughout the world as one of the most authoritative health and nutrition experts of his time. His book, Colon Health, Emphasizes prevention but also promises relief from these afflictions: constipation, fatigue, poor eyesight, hearing loss, asthma, prostate trouble, colds, allergies, nagging backache, respiratory disorders, digestive problems, gas, abdominal pain, colitis, thyroid deficiency, diabetes, and numerous other aliments.

Research has shown that many illnesses can be caused by unhealthy colons. Colds, flu, cancer, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and allergies are some examples of diseases caused by excessive amounts of low-quality food (like sugary, fatty and salty fast food) combined with poor waste removal.

When you don’t properly pass waste, food may stay in the colon for days, weeks, months, even years, putrefying and then poisoning your entire system. In most cases, seriousness of disease corresponds directly to the level of toxicity.

What is Colon Cleansing?
Colon cleansing is the process of removing impacted waste from the colon, and clearing the colon to allow for proper absorption of vitamins and minerals. Colon cleansing can be a safe and easy process for eliminating toxins from the body and restoring normal muscular activity in the colon.
We all know that a clean, strong and well functioning colon is quintessential to maintaining the best possible health. A dirty, weak and poorly functioning colon, is a serious breeding ground for disease, sickness and death. Serious health problems can arise if the colon is not properly cared for, unfortunately colon health care has been sadly neglected.  It’s just not something we are taught .

A great deal of Medical doctors and health practitioners around the world believe that digestive enzymes can help make your colon and entire digestive system healthier organs because they assist you to not experience the toxic build up of undigested food which can slow your metabolism.

An effective colon cleansing product must be able to cleanse your colon of harmful wastes and toxins, as well as promoting improved digestion processes and a better overall quality of elimination. The ability for an effective colon cleansing product to strengthen your immune system, in conjunction with promoting improved nutrient assimilation to boosts energy levels cannot be understated.

One Bowel Movement Per Day is Not Enough!
Most doctors will tell you that one bowel movement a day is normal and they are correct. Most people do not have more than that. However, it’s still not healthy. Even if you are “regular” in how often or when you have a bowel movement, it can still be damaging to your system. If you have fewer bowel movements than meals you are not eliminating your waste properly. Visualize the back-up!

Your Diet Determines the Health of Your Colon.

What do we eat too much of?
Fast and processed foods cause us to consume too many calories, fats, sugars and salt.

Today we eat an average of 500+ more calories than we did 30 years ago. In addition, we still feel hungry an hour after eating fast or processed foods. Why? Our bodies are not getting the nutrients we need and we can’t properly absorb any nutrients which fast foods may have. So we eat too much and are still nutrient deprived.

What’s missing from our diets?
Fiber
We eat less than 1/3 the recommended daily intake of fiber each day, fewer than 13 grams. Fiber is critical to absorbing the toxins we take into our bodies, promote regular elimination and clean the intestinal walls. The bonus, fiber also helps stave off hunger while keeping up our energy levels.
Enzymes
You may not have thought much about enzymes but they are essential to break down the foods so that our bodies can assimilate what little nutrients they may actually have.

What actions should you take?

  • Decrease your intake of fast and processed foods
  • Increase your intake of natural, uncooked vegetables
  • Increase your intake of purified water.
  • Consume digestive enzymes!!

Your Enzyme Potential & How To Improve It – Part 4

LINK TO PART 3

It’s important to realize that not only are enzymes destroyed in cooked food, the process of us digesting cooked food actually depletes our own supply of enzymes. A double whammy!

So to fight the effects we need to ensure we consume enzymes, some people have even gone so far as to call enzymes “The Missing Link” to better health and vitality, Why? Because of the benefits listed below:-

  • Enzymes beefs up the activity of “seek and destroy cells” which attack cancer cells by dissolving the cancer cells protein covering allowing macrphages and NK cells to kill cancer cells.
  • Enzymes strengthens your immune defences by providing amylase (in macrophages (WBC) to seek and destroy bad microbes and toxins. Protease – clears undigested proteins, cellular debris and toxins in your blood.
  • Enzymes promote healthy cholesterol levels and blood pressure. The key enzyme lipase breaks down and removes fat, lowering LDL and triglycerides, preventing artery clogging. Other enzymes proteolyic, a natural blood thinner.
  • Enzymes soothe painful joints and body aches by reducing bad PGEs. The effect is less inflammation, helping aches and pains, from arthritis, backache, stiff neck etc.
  • Enzymes alleviates allergies (food and skin) by ensuring complete digestion protein particles are prevented from escaping into the blood, therefore there is no unnecessary immune response.
