I’m still reading Dr David Servan-Schreiber’s book “Anti Cancer – a new way of life”. Because of his medical/research background this book not only presents scientifically valid statistics and reasoning behind his words, he also provides interesting, and understandable, commentary on the reasons why our generation is more commonly being afflicted with cancers.
For example, the immense increase in the production of synthetic chemicals from 1 million tons in 1930 to 200 million tons today.
The purpose of Dr Servan-Schreiber’s book is not to scare you, but to reassure you that it’s possible to do things to protect yourself. He provides tables which summarize, e.g. which foods to limit/reduce and which foods to eat instead.
I have covered many of the principles of nourishing your body at a cellular level and avoiding toxins in my Cell Rejuvenation Series. Look it up and read this 10 part series when you get the chance. I suggest you bookmark it so you can easily return.
Deficiency in Enzymes – solution – CONSUME ENZYMES
Deficiency in Nutrients – solution – CONSUME NATURAL SUPERFOODS
Toxins are all around us:-
External toxins from the polluted air, impure, dead water, foods, beverages, medications
Internal toxins from poorly digested or undigested food, poor lifestyle, stress, lack of exercise
Free Radicals, highly unstable molecules which wreak havoc in our bodies, are unavoidable:-
They are formed constantly as a result of breathing oxygen
Other causes are, stress, exposure to sunlight, air pollution, cleaning chemicals, aging, cigarette smoking, high fat or sugar diets, processed foods, medication, exercise, illness, agricultural chemicals
Each cell in the body suffers at least 10,000 hits from free radicals every day
We have around 100 trillion cells in our bodies – imagine the number of hits we must suffer daily
Free Radicals damage our cell walls, RNA and DNA and protein enzymes – all of which decrease cellular function and cause diseases like – cancer, heart disease, arthritis, stroke, premature aging, diabetes, allergies, elevated blood pressure, high cholesterol, lowered immune function and other degenerative diseases
ANTIOXIDANTS combat free radicals
Acid-Alkaline Balance is an important aspect of a healthy body
All our cells are slightly alkaline
Alkalinity must be maintained in order to function and remain healthy and alive
An acidic body hinders your body’s ability to absorb nutrients, resulting in deficiencies and decreases the energy production in cells, causing constant fatigue and tiredness
An acidic body decreases your ability to detoxify,decreases the ability to repair damaged cells and makes tumor cells thrive
Causes of acidity are:-
Pressures of life, like shortage of time
Eating acidic foods
Consume alkaline water, food and supplements to promote alkalinity
Enzymes are the human body’s life force, in short – LIFE CANNOT EXIST WITHOUT ENZYMES
Every function of your body depends on enzymes, our ability to see, hear, move, digest food, think depends on enzymes
Your cells degenerate faster if you have an enzyme deficiency
Enzymes have a limited life and must be replaced regularly
Aging, sickness, eating cooked food, exercise and stress all cause a deficiency in enzymes
If you have trouble losing weight you may be deficient in enzymes
You must have enzymes to absorb nutrients from food or supplements
Deficiency in Nutrients
Can be caused by incomplete digestion (lack of enzymes)
A poor diet
Imbalance of minerals, vitamins and amino acids
Insufficient dietary fiber
Cell renewal, cell life, cell survival, cell detoxification, cell repair, cell protection, good cell health, essential cell biochemical reactions all require sufficient nutrition at a cellular level.
You now have the information to not only reduce your health risk, but to actually
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.
