The following info-graphic says it all. I’m sure you know about these foods, just remember how beneficial they are for your health and plan your meals to include them.
A convenient healthy snack food. Just keep the portion size in mind – snack size is a small palmful. – Nuts have good fats (monounsaturated fats), which help lower “bad” cholesterol and may raise “good” cholesterol when substituted for saturated fats in the diet. Several major studies have found that eating nuts significantly reduces the risk of coronary heart disease – by 25–50% in both men and women. One of these studies, the Nurses’ Health Study, also found that regularly eating nuts and peanut butter reduces the chance of developing type 2 diabetes by 21–27%.
What we hope to get from eating, nourishment for all the cells in our bodies. Decrease processed foods in your diet, decrease the amount of saturated fats and sugar, increase natural fresh foods, increase the quantity of raw food you consume. These steps will increase the nutritional value of your diet.

“(NaturalNews) Cancer will be the number one killer in the world by the year 2010, overtaking the spot now held by heart disease, according to a recent report from Associated Press. International health experts foresee a doubling in the global rate of cancer deaths by 2030. Cancer diagnoses have been steadily rising around the globe and are expected to hit 12 million this year, with deaths from cancer logging in at 7 million. By 2030 this appalling toll will hit 27 million diagnoses and 17 million deaths. What can you do to make sure you are not among the gruesome statistics? Assuming you do not smoke or drink excessively, here is a list of the top 10 steps for avoiding cancer. Anyone who has had cancer can use these steps to prevent a recurrence.
Make high quality food a priority
The quality of the food supply is very poor, being grown in depleted soil, transported long distances, stored, processed, and packaged. There is very little nutrition left in such food. Yet high quality nutrients are required by the body to keep it free of cancer. Food is a lot more than just calories. It is the bedrock of the body’s defense, so only the highest quality, most nutrient packed food should be eaten. High quality food is not about what tastes the best, but what will make you feel the best.
It is up to us to be as proactive as we can when dealing with what life has offered if we hope to retain our health. Eating locally and organically grown and produced food is the best way to get maximum nutrition. Since everyone does not have access to this kind of food, the next best thing is to make a commitment to eat whole foods that retain their integrity and have not been processed. Whole foods are things like apples, celery, potatoes and chicken legs, items that have not been altered from their natural state.
Food prepared at home is best because restaurant food is low on nutrition and high on toxic chemicals. But stay away from packaged foods and other products of food technology. They are processed, low on nutrients, and usually chocked full of chemicals. They have been created to benefit the food company that manufactures them, not the person who has to eat them. A plant based diet that places primary emphasis on vegetables and fruits eaten raw offers the highest level of cancer preventing compounds. A diet that places primary emphasis on processed carbohydrates like pancakes, bread, cake and snack foods offers the lowest level of cancer protection.
If avoiding cancer is the goal, eat the highest quality food that can be found and afforded. When times are though, think of an investment in high quality food as something that can never be taken from you, and will never lose its value. High quality food will enhance your looks and appeal to a much greater extent than a new outfit, hairdo or manicure. There is nothing that creates a radiant appearance like the glow of good health.
A diet that frequently includes known cancer fighting food is of tremendous value in the quest to remain cancer free. The Budwig protocol is the only well documented food cure for cancer. It consists of flax oil mixed with cottage cheese. Other known potent cancer fighters are berries, apples eaten with their seeds, almonds, Brazil nuts, broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, green leafy vegetables, beans and other legumes, garlic, tea, grapes, red wine, avocados, and tomatoes. Most culinary herbs have cancer fighting properties so use them whenever possible. Turmeric, ginger, rosemary, cumin, and cayenne are among the richest in cancer fighting compounds.
Stay as chemically free as possible
When the body is chemicalized, the immune system is so busy dealing with the toxic chemical onslaught that it cannot do the jobs it was meant to do. One job of the immune system is to make sure the cancerous cells produced by the body every day are identified and eliminated before they can turn into a full blown cancer. The immune system perceives toxic chemicals as just what they are, foreign invaders that do not exist in nature. It responds by trying to oust these invaders from the body. While it is busy doing that, a few cancerous cells can slip by unnoticed and a cancer can begin.
We are living in a time of chemical assault like never before. Our food is full of chemicals, the air we breathe is polluted, and the water supply contains industrial waste and pharmaceutical residues. Our personal care and household products are a toxic chemical soup. Add to that the threat from electro magnetic fields (EMFS) such as produced by power lines, computers, cell phones and even electric alarm clocks, and the total environmental threat we deal with on a daily basis is mind boggling.
Anyone who has been on the standard American diet, taking prescription drugs, and using personal care and household products from traditional retail outlets has a huge store of toxins in the body that need to be eliminated before they can contribute to the development of cancer. This can be accomplished by practicing yoga and using the breathing techniques prescribed by yoga masters, or by deep tissue massage. For the first few times, each should be followed by a general purpose antioxidant supplement like R-Lipoic Acid, and the drinking of plenty of pure water. Both will flush out toxins. Cilantro juice is another way to flush out many toxins including heavy metals. Follow the juice with chlorella or IP6 to escort them from the body. There are many other detox formulas on the market.
It is relatively easy to find personal care, cosmetic, and household products that are free of toxic chemicals. Non-toxic products can be easily ordered on line and shipped to your home. Install a water purification system, preferably one that uses reverse osmosis to get the toxins out of your drinking water and the water in which you bathe. These are also available online. Let fresh air into your home or workplace whenever possible. Use houseplants to keep the air in your environment free of pollutants. One medium sized houseplant for every 100 square foot of space should do the trick. Larger plants provide even more natural air cleaning.
Do the best you can to rid your environment of EMFs. For starters, never sit with a laptop computer on your lap. Get rid of those old style televisions and computer monitors that emit huge amounts of radiation. Throw out your microwave. If you aren’t buying packaged processed foods, you won’t need it. For a quick heating device, get an inexpensive toaster oven. Move the alarm clock from next to the bed to across the room. Do not use a cell phone unless you have to, and then use it only with a headset or in the speakerphone mode. Never carry electronic gadgetry mounted on your body.
Learn to read labels. If you do not recognize the ingredients as compounds that occur in nature, do not buy the product.
Keeping yourself and your family as free of toxins as possible requires a new way of thinking and approaching life. One of the first priorities for making a purchase should be how much the product will add to the quest for a long and healthy life. When thoughts go in this direction you will begin to see how people are being manipulated and used by many of the large corporations. Producers that make products containing toxic chemicals are showing no regard for their customer’s health or the well being of their families. They will use people however then can to enrich their bottom lines. As people become aware of this, their criteria for a purchase evolves to the point where they naturally purchase only products that will enhance their health.
Run away from prescription and over-the-counter drugs
Socrates said, “Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food”. If he were alive today he would probably be appalled by a society that is tightly in the grip of pharmaceutical companies. These companies sell patented toxic chemicals that do little or nothing to keep people well and healthy on any sustained basis. Their products mask symptoms that should be given attention. Symptoms are a wake up call that something is wrong. They need to be traced back to their cause, so the cause can be addressed and corrected, not covered up and ignored.
Whether it is a prescribed medication or an over-the-counter drug, the affect on the body is the same as with the toxic chemicals in food and other products. Drugs are lab created and do not exist in nature. If you put a drug into your body, your immune system has to deal with it as though it too is a foreign invader. Drugs raise the level of toxicity in the body and must be detoxified by a liver already stressed from trying to deal with the high level of environmental toxins.
No one gets better taking pharmaceuticals, and there is no healing. The side effects that are produced by one drug frequently lead to more prescriptions for more drugs in what becomes a vicious cycle. If people take enough drugs their bodies become chemical waste dumps where cancer can easily flourish. The reliance on drugs has diverted attention from the real issue, which is how to care for ourselves and keep ourselves healthy. Once people become truly health conscious, they resent the drug companies because they know that these companies do not have people’s best interest at heart with the products they sell. They are just like the companies that make chemicalized foods, trying to get people’s money without given anything of value in return. People who have wised up to the harmful effects of patent medicines see the constant barrage of commercials for drugs as blatant manipulation and brainwashing.
There are natural alternatives to drugs that do not just mask symptoms but actually produce healing. There is an abundance of natural compounds that can keep people in good health. These substances leave the immune systems and liver strong and able to provide protection from cancer.
Keep your gut healthy and happy
People have trouble with their stomachs and digestive tracts and write it off as an inevitable result of stress or aging. Yet many natural healers say death begins in the gut, a statement that underscores how vital the health of the gut is for overall well being. When the gut is not healthy, food cannot be properly processed and assimilated into the body, leaving people unable to have access to the wealth of nutrients that high quality food provides. Since it is these nutrients that provide protection from cancer, it becomes imperative that gut health be a priority in any anti-cancer effort.
The deterioration of the digestive system occurs over a period of years and can be signaled by sounds of a thunderstorm coming from the gut. Other symptoms include headaches, increased susceptibility to infection, gas, bloating, constipation, indigestion, and falling energy levels. Failure to address declining gut function creates an opportunity for cancer and other degenerative diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, lupus, arthritis, and psoriasis. Many chronic diseases start with gut deterioration.
The four pounds of bacteria that live in the gut are the backbone of the immune system. They are our unpaid personal bodyguards, willing to go to war against aberrant cells, bacteria, viruses, pathogens and foreign invaders to defend us. They also help out with digestion and make sure nutrients are absorbed so they can be used by the body to keep it healthy.
One of the worst things that can happen to ruin the happy relationship between people and their bacteria is antibiotics. They kill off the bodyguards along with the enemies, leaving no defense against unfriendly bacteria that would like to inhabit the intestinal tract. After a round of antibiotics, it is essential to take probiotics to reestablish friendly bacteria in the gut. Kefir, a culture that can be started in any kind of milk including coconut milk, offers powerful protection to the gut and as a result, to the entire body. Kefir culture is available online.
Even if no antibiotics have been taken, the herd of friendly bacteria in the gut can become depleted to the point where it can no longer do what it is meant to do. Pesticides in food are lethal to intestinal bacteria. Even if the skins of fruits and vegetables are well washed, pesticides remain because they work systemically and will be contained in the body of the produce. Chlorine is meant to kill bacteria in water and will kill off the bacteria in the gut as well. Eventually the gut becomes so depleted that it will be as though antibiotics have been taken even if they have not. When this happens, unfriendly microorganisms are free to set up shop in the digestive tract.
Probiotics are friendly bacteria similar to the bacteria found in the guts of breastfed infants who have been provided this natural protection against many diseases by their mothers. Almost every supplement company sells probiotics in capsule form. Although they don’t work as well as kefir at restoring depleted levels of bacteria, they are good for maintenance of a healthy digestive system. Yogurt will also help preserve the health of the digestive tract once it has been established, but it won’t do much to help repopulate a digestive tract after antibiotic use or years of general neglect.
Restore declining hormones to optimal levels
For women and for men, achieving and maintaining hormonal balance is probably the single greatest intervention that can be taken to preserve health. Hormonal decline can start as early as the late 20’s for women and the mid 30’s for men. It is an opening door that leads to aging and degenerative diseases like cancer. While women and men have their hormones in abundance and in balance, they are vital, vibrant and reproductive. Nature has a use for them and wants to keep them around. When hormones decline and are not replaced, a powerful message is sent to nature saying these people are no longer necessary in the great scheme of life.
Hormones control mental and physical well being. Energy level, metabolism, brain functioning, skeletal integrity, mood, motivation, and zest for life are orchestrated by the hormones. All the hormones work together to keep us healthy and functioning at our best. If one hormone is not up to par, repercussions will manifest through all the body systems. If people do not feel well and at their best a large part of the time, chances are pretty good that at least one hormone is not at the level it should be. If they have trouble sleeping, feel depressed, gain weight without increasing food intake, have low energy during some part of the day, or have lost interest in sex or cannot perform, their hormone levels are probably declining and out of balance. For anyone who already has cancer or any other degenerative disease, hormonal imbalance is almost a sure thing. Until hormones are replenished and balanced, real sustainable recovery will be impossible.
The only way to achieve hormone balance is with bioidentical hormone replacement that restores hormone levels to where they were at the prime of life. Teenagers and people in their early 20’s usually feel good and energetic most of the time. They do not have cancer. This is because they have a full complement of balanced hormones.
Achieving this level of hormonal balance and the vibrant health, joy of living and freedom from worrying about cancer and other diseases that goes with it, requires the help of a physician trained in anti-aging medicine or hormone balancing. Many traditional doctors have never heard of bioidentical hormones or if they have, they will advise their patients not to use them because they are not drugs. Since many bioidentical hormones are made at compounding pharmacies, this is a good place to start the search for hormone balance. Ask who they recommend.”

Take Ten Steps for a Cancer-Free Life, Part I
There is no simply doubt that lifestyle and diet is a major contributing cause to diabetes?
Here is an unpleasant statistic:- USA – over 20.8 million people (approximately 7.85% of the population) suffer from diabetes.
However in India a country of more than 1 billion people very few people suffer from diabetes.
As a further startling example:-
History has shown that islanders leading traditional lifestyles did not suffer from diabetes. U.S. Navy did a health survey in the Pacific just after World War II, and found no cases of diabetes among Pacific Islanders – zero. Now,
Pacific Islanders have one of the highest rates of diabetes in the world. So what happened?
Before World War II, Pacific Islanders lived traditional lifestyles, with diets high in fish, fruits and vegetables, with lots of physical activity from fishing, farming, and simply walking. Many Pacific Islander communities underwent radical, rapid changes in diet and physical activity after the war. Fried food, imported high fat canned meats, processed food snacks, and sweetened drinks became a way of life and replaced healthier natural choices.
This points to the fact that our diet and lifestyle have a direct influence on the onset of diabetes. It also points to the fact that our diet and lifestyle habits have a direct influence on the reversal of diabetes.
Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, said about food thousands of years ago: ‘Let Food Be Thy Medicine, and Medicine Be Thy Food’
So what type of diet and lifestyle would reverse diabetes?
The teachers in ‘Food Matters’ raise the question of using alternative approaches to the treatment of diabetes over conventional therapies, because of their often harmful side effects and failure to address the underlying cause of the disease. They recommend natural, simple, inexpensive therapies to restore your health.
“My personal experience with diabetes and review of the literature made it VERY clear to me that virtually every case of type 2 diabetes is 100 percent reversible.”
– Dr. Mercola, Specialist in Nutritional and Alternative Medicine
Does your doctor recommend alternative therapies?
The truth is your doctor most likely has received little if any training in nutrition and alternative therapies as part of his or her qualification. In the US less than 6% of graduated physicians have studied Nutrition as part of their curriculum.
From a business perspective, it may not be in their best interest to tell you. Prescribing drugs and performing surgery is the livelihood of their profession. Doctors depend on patients unquestioningly acceptance of traditional medical treatments which keep patients returning as a customer over and over again.
What Will You Learn In This program
The ‘Food Matters Diabetes Learning Program’ is an extension of the documentary film ‘Food Matters’ featuring never before seen footage focusing specifically on diabetes issues.

This summary comparison will focus on two broad categories. Chemical and Natural.
Chemical based products, which has two sub-categories, prescription only and “over the counter”, include:-
People often turn to chemical based diet products looking for a “quick fix”, however as you can see from the summary above, these products interfere in some way or another with your body’s natural processes. In addition, by definition, they involve adding chemicals to your body.
We are all individuals and have our own particular metabolism and chemistry, so the effects of these chemical based diet products can be unpredictable. Unpleasant and even dangerous side effects have been reported by many people.
Chemical based diet products do not aim to provide you with any nutritional benefit, in fact they often aim to interrupt your body’s absorption of nutrients.
Natural diet products do not require any prescription. They are food. Natural diet products include:-
This summary comparison clearly shows which group is the most beneficial to your body. The products you select to help you lose weight will be your individual choice. Do your self a favor – choose wisely.
The film ‘Food Matters’ delivers a clear, concise, hard-hitting fast paced look at our current state of health, health care and the quality and nutritional content of our food.
The unbiased film, independently funded from start to finish, was created by two nutritionists, James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch, who became Producer Directors of the film created in the style of ‘The Secret’.
Discouraged by the terrible side effects that pharmaceutical drugs were having on their families’ health, they set out on a path to discover what other alternatives might exist. After studying Nutrition through the Global College of Natural Medicine in California, they realized that the health challenges within their own families were in fact a very real representation of what is happening the world over.
James and Laurentine, in their personal quest, saw a need and found their mission was to uncover the truth about our food and invasive medical-based systems and focus attention on natural therapies and nutrition-based healing.
With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and our tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what’s wrong with our malnourished bodies, it’s no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. Providing a host of toxic medical therapies to an already toxic population who eat nutrient sparse foods is not the answer. Food Matters sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide ‘Sickness Industry’ and gives people some scientifically verifiable solutions for curing disease naturally.
Based on the premise of Hippocrates, the founding father of modern medicine, “Let Thy Food Be Thy Medicine, And Thy Medicine Be Thy Food.”, the film challenges our belief systems and helps us analyze the information given to us by the modern medical establishments. As the teachers reveal, the solution to our problems is not necessarily costly medical intervention and disclose many alternative therapies that can be more effective, more economical, less harmful and less invasive.
The culmination is a film of the teachings of leading authorities in Nutrition and Natural Healing from around the world. Featuring:
· Andrew Saul PhD, Therapeutic Nutrition Specialist and Author, Rochester, New York
· Charlotte Gerson, Founder of the Gerson Institute, San Diego, California
· Dr Dan Rogers M.D., N.D., Curing the “incurable”, San Diego, California
· David Wolfe, World Authority on Raw Foods & Superfoods, San Diego, California
· Prof. Ian Brighthope, M.D., M.B.B.S., D.Ag.Sci, FACNEM, FACHM, Melbourne, Australia
· Jerome Burne, Medical Health Journalist, London, UK
· Phillip Day, Investigative Journalist, Kent, UK
· Victor Zeines, Holistic Dentist & Nutritionist D.D.S., M.S, FAGD, Manhattan, New York
The truth that improper nutrition is harmful is revealed by the world leaders in nutrition and natural healing, more importantly they also disclose that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses, including potentially fatal cancers.
‘Food Matters’ seeks to uncover the business of disease, and at the same time, explore the safe, cheap and effective use of nutrition and supplementation for preventing and often reversing the underlying causative aspects of the illness. Find out what works, what doesn’t and what’s killing people. Becoming informed about the choices available could save lives.
Moreover, ‘Food Matters’ allows easy access to solid information to help people make better choices for their health by using an on-line “pay-per-view” distribution system or via DVD mailed anywhere in the world. Get your own copy by visiting Food Matters
We are constantly bombarded with messages from the media telling us that foods we have consumed for years are suddenly bad for us. One day eggs are good for you, the next day they are bad for your heart – what is the actual situation now?
You can’t afford to miss the information in the new movie “Food Matters” – Click the Title to find out more.
You need to eat more leafy green vegetables, reduce your consumption of bad fats (saturated animal fats), increase your consumption of good fats (like olive oil and avocado), eat quality lean protein, eat more fish (but beware of the mercury!), reduce your intake of sugar. Eat fewer processed foods. So what is the bottom line? What are nutritionists trying to tell you? It all boils down to the fact that what you don’t eat is more important than what you do eat.
Start From Zero
The best way to figure out what you should be eating to live up to your highest health potential is to start from recording what you are eating. It’s so easy to forget that extra bit of something. So, use your digital camera or phone camera. Every time you eat, stop, think, take a picture. Remember that the camera doesn’t lie. At the end of each day, write a list of the foods shown in those pictures. This may take a while, but you will be able to see that most foods can be broken down into a few simple categories at their basic ingredients:
Now take out a fresh piece of paper and add only the items that fall under the category of fruits and vegetables. This is what is called starting from zero. Remove everything that does not contribute to your health and only add back those items that you know are good for you. Mark whether the food is natural or processed. Aim for unprocessed, preferably organic, fruit and vegetables.
Why Fruits and Vegetables?
The governments of the world recommend that you eat between 5 to 10 fruits and vegetables every day. This recommendation is a great one and it has helped dozens of people lose weight and become healthier. It’s easy eat 5 to 10 fruits and vegetables a day by eliminating other snacks like muffins, cakes or cookies. Apples, bananas, mandarin’s, oranges are easy to take with you almost anywhere, just wash them at home to make life a bit easier. Find out more about the colors of fruit & vegetables HERE
It is only by eliminating the unhealthy, extraneous or over-processed foods that you will be able to incorporate the recommended quantity of healthy ones.
The Building Blocks of Health
Think of this exercise as a way to build up your health, starting from the base. By eliminating meat, dairy and aggravating grains from your diet you prepare your body for proper nutrition. You allow yourself to cleanse and you provide your body with all the enzymes, the minerals and the vitamins that your body requires for proper functioning.
Find out more about Enzymes by viewing our Enzyme Series HERE
Looking at the new list of healthy foods, you might see that it needs to be improved upon a bit. Why not add some new and exotic fruits and vegetables that you never tried before? Add more healthful grains in the form of brown rice, quinoa, barley and buckwheat if you find you need something denser. Old fashioned foods like rolled oats are great for you as well as tasting good.
Give Yourself a New Start
By starting fresh you give your body a break and a chance to rejuvenate itself. If you decide that you would like to add some of the things from the original list back into your diet, do so only 30 days after this exercise. Then watch to see how your body reacts to this newly added food. If you don’t experience any side effects then you can continue to eat it, once again. Otherwise you have proof that it was never that good for you in the first place.

Without a properly functioning brain we are in serious trouble, we just can’t live up to our full potential. Your brain works on the principle “use it or lose it”. Despite what you may have heard, you really can grow new brain cells.
Your brain need care and attention just like the rest of your body. So, how can you achieve an improvement in your brain power?
Think of your brain as an electrical circuit board, with an ability to constantly have new circuits installed, and existing ones to be reinforced.
So what are the building blocks of improved brain power? One is physical, the other mental exercise.
Keeping your body properly hydrated with energized living water is very important. However, you may not be aware that the single MOST important element crucial for the development and maintenance of healthy brain function is LECITHIN? It is a nutritional building block for the synthesis of the brain’s primary memory neurotransmitter.
Neurotransmitters function as brain messengers that enable the brain cells to “communicate” with each other. When neurotransmitter levels decline, the brain cells are unable to “communicate” efficiently with each other. This means that previously stored information (”memory”), cannot be recalled easily. Your “recall” ability weakens, causing fuzzy memory and mental tiredness in high-stress situations.
Lecithin is essential for mental development and maintenance. Lecithin is inexpensive and easy to consume.
Read more about Lecithin HERE.
Read more about Energized Living Water HERE.
How do you train and challenge your brain with the right kind of mental exercises? Find a scientifically valid balanced brain workout. Fundamental cognitive abilities – such as memory, attention and processing speed – can be improved with appropriate training. I recommend the scientific brain exercises developed by Lumosity.
Well, after the impressive sunny weather during the Pope’s visit to Sydney, things sure “turned” into cold, wet and windy.
Somewhere, somehow, I developed a bacterial respiratory tract infection. Utter misery – with an extremely sore throat, chest congestion, coughing, headaches, fever – the whole deal. Unable to sleep properly for the past week, (I feel like I can’t breathe when I lie down), I have given a lot of thought to the medical profession. They certainly have their place. I was very grateful to be able to have tests to figure out what was ailing me, and even more grateful to be able to obtain prescription medication to fight the infection.
It’s taken a whole week, and I’m gradually feeling better. So the realization is that I’m not anti medicine, more that I’m pro nutrition. There are obviously times when the medical profession provides a knowledgeable and valued response to a critical need.
Nutritionists turned filmmakers, James Colquhoun & Laurentine ten Bosch, went on a mission to uncover the truth. What we are being told to eat by governments, food companies and mass media marketing is actually doing us considerable harm.
They tracked down several of the world’s leaders in nutrition and natural healing from around the globe in order to provide the most up to date information on nutrition and natural healing.
The focus of the film is in helping us rethink the belief systems fed to us by our modern medical and health care establishments. The teachers point out that not every problem requires costly, major medical attention and reveal many alternative therapies that can be more effective, more economical, less harmful and less invasive.
Food Matters is a documentary film informing you on the best choices you can make for you and your family’s health. Helping you save time, money and effort.
In this day and age with so many companies interested in profiting from your misfortune and ill health this film will help keep your money in your pocket and your health in your hands.
We all know someone with Cancer, Heart Disease, Stroke, Diabetes, Obesity, Mental Illness, Depression, Asthma, Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Chronic Fatigue, Allergies and on and on…
Knowing what to do and where to turn has become unbelievably complex.
I invite you to join the World’s Leading Authorities on Nutrition and Natural Healing as they uncover the true cause of disease. Find out what really works, what doesn’t and what’s killing you.
The concept of Colon cleansing is ancient. It is both safe and effective for everyone of all ages. Colon cleansing is essential to your well-being and for the elimination of waste products and toxins. A detoxification and cleansing program is preventive health care and there is no better way to rid your body of toxins and contamination. It may surprise you to find out that Colon cleansing can provide relief of many ailments.
Toxins, especially drugs, can damage or destroy beneficial bacteria, allowing harmful bacteria to take over producing by-products like ammonia, purines, and ethionine, which can cause cancer. Toxins are more prevalent today today than they have ever been, with processed food and food additives. Advocates for colon cleansing believe that it provides health benefits by removing these toxins from their bodies, and boosting their energy and immune systems. When toxins have built up in your body, they eventually find a way of coming out, being expressed in the form of such problems as diarrhea, pimples, acne, liver spots, boils, bad odor and perspiration, bad breath, etc. The body finally gives up the battle and succumbs to cancer, heart disease, tuberculosis, and other fatal conditions.
I believe that there are many benefits of colon cleansing. These benefits not only include health benefits, but also in how it relates to ones appearance as the skin looks more vibrant; blemishes, cellulite, and water retention disappear; and the whites of the eyes regain a youthful clearness. Some of the potential benefits of a colon cleansing may include a decrease in gas or bloating, more radiant skin and hair, and an overall slimmer appearance. Other benefits that people claim after the cleansing include the alleviation of menstrual pain, migraines, joint pain, skin problems, weight loss, breast cysts, sinus congestion, improved concentration, and many others. If you have ever been diagnosed with any of these problems, it would be foolish not to proceed with some type of cleansing program because the benefits far exceed the risks. Colon cleansers can help restore bodies to their optimum function, thus increasing the nutritional benefits that our bodies receive from the food that is digested.
Colon cleansing is preventive health care and there is no better way to rid your body of toxins that can cause many illnesses. It is a safe and effective alternative to problems that normally can only be treated with medication. A healthy colon is essential to good health, which makes colon cleansing a must.

Thinking you will be young forever. Youth is very forgiving of late nights, early mornings, and poor eating habits. Later in life that the sins of your youth can catch up with you. Too much alcohol, sun exposure or other bad habits can leave lasting ill effects. As you age, the signs of excess in your youth will start appearing.
Solution: Realize you’re not “bullet proof”, and look after your health and well-being from any early age. It’s never too early to be aware of your body’s needs.
Eating too much fast food laden with sugar, salt and fats. Sure it’s a quick fix when you’re hungry and in a rush, but is the lingering regret worth it?
Solution: THINK before you eat. Look for better quality offerings. It’s actually becoming easier to find fast food which is healthier. If you can only find pizza, then add a salad and cut down on the number of pizza slices you consume. Beware of salad dressings, use olive oil and vinegar to get the benefits of both.
Not drinking enough water. It’s a fact that a majority of people are trying to get through their busy lives in a dehydrated state.
Solution: Drink 9 to 12 glasses of water each day. Seem too much or too difficult? Drink 1 glass on waking, 1 glass before breakfast, 1 glass after you clean your teeth in the morning, 1 glass mid-morning, 1 glass after each time you go to the restroom (say 4/5 times a day), 1 glass before lunch, 1 glass mid-afternoon, 1 glass when you get home from work, 1 glass before dinner, 1 glass after dinner, 1 glass after you clean your teeth in the evening. Use daily events as “triggers” for your water consumption. Try to drink purified, energized water at all times.
Smoking cigarettes. It’s now well recognized that smoking is extremely detrimental to your health. Also avoid “second hand” smoke.
Solution: Never smoke, simply don’t start. If you currently smoke give it up – your body will love you for it. Keep away from places where you’ll be exposed to smoke.
Thinking it’s too late to do anything to improve your health. Don’t give up on you!
Solution: Remember that the cells in your body are constantly being renewed. Give your cells the best possible chance to be repaired and rejuvenated. Nourish your body with natural superfoods to provide concentrated nutrition and antioxidants, keep your body alkalized, hydrated and detoxified.

To combat the problem, “pH balancing” has become one of the most important daily tasks for healthy living. The basic principle of good health is to keep the pH level of the body slightly alkaline (between pH 7.35 and pH 7.45), so the body is best able to fend off disease.
Vinegar is one of the food products that can rapidly improve the blood acid level. In just 2 hours, it can bring your body back to a healthy alkaline level, possibly saving your life!

Antioxidants – Group of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phyto-nutrients, phyto-chemicals) which help protect your body from free radicals (caused by normal body functions, aging, pollutants, pesticides, antibiotic use and other factors).
Adaptogen – That which helps boost, balance and normalize functions in your body.
Bioflavanoids – Sometimes referred to as Vitamin P, these help to enhance the absorption of Vitamin C. The human body does not produce these so they must be supplied by your diet. They help to promote circulation, stimulate bile production, and act with Vitamin C to preserve and protect the structure of capillary blood vessels.
Demulcent – Helps to soothe and relieve internal inflammation.
Emollient – Helps to soothe and soften inflamed tissue
Free Radicals – A single or group of unstable molecules/atoms that can cause damage to cells, leading to breakdown and disease. Visualize and apple – when you cut it and leave the cut surface exposed to air.It turns brown, almost like it’s rusting. Oxidization has occurred. In a similar way unstable oxygen molecules in your body are the free radicals that cause your unprotected organs to “rust” and breakdown.
Phytochemicals – Literally meaning “plant chemicals”, phytochemicals are protective food factors derived from a variety of plant sources. Phtyochemicals have powerful health benefits. Whenever there is plant life, phytochemicals protect plants from attack by their enemies in the environment, like bacteria, viruses, radiation and insects. Research is now showing that we can benefit from these life-sustaining qualities as well. Good news for us. Plants have been in existence much longer than man and know much more about survival. Research indicates that phytochemicals can provide protection against some types of cancer.
Tonic – A product that is strengthening and invigorating.
Vitamins really deserve there own glossary! Vitamins are organic chemicals that are necessary for growth, metabolism, and overall health and well-being. Vitamins originate in food, and are categorized as either fat soluble (meaning they can be stored in the body for long periods of time) OR water soluble (these pass easily through our bodies, cannot be stored, must be replenished daily).
Vitamin A – Also known as Beta Carotene, a fat-soluble vitamin essential for cell growth, development, reproduction, and immunity. It is stored primarily in the liver and is considered one of the most potent antioxidants.
Vitamin B1 – Also known as Thiamine, a water-soluble vitamin, beneficial to the nervous system. It helps to convert blood sugar (glucose) into energy.
Vitamin B2 – Also known as Riboflavin, a water-soluble vitamin which helps with energy production. It must be replaced constantly. It is the most common deficiency.
Vitamin B3 – Also known as Niacin, a water-soluble vitamin, a major player against heart disease. It helps to lower cholesterol and high blood pressure.
Vitamin B6 – Also known as Pyridoxine, this water-soluble vitamin goes through the body in only 8 hours. It is needed for red-blood cell production and cellular growth. It also plays a key role in the immune system and antibody production.
Vitamin B12 – Also known as Cyanocobalamin, a water-soluble vitamin known for its energizing capabilities. It is essential for nerve tissue, promotes growth, memory and regenerates red blood cells.
Vitamin B15 – Also known as Pantothenic Acid, this water-soluble vitamin helps protect against cardiovascular disease as ell as helping with symptoms of arthritis. It helps encourage healing, protects the liver and immune system.

Vitamin D – This is a fat-soluble vitamin that the skin can produce on its own when exposed to direct sunlight. In only 15 minutes a day, your body can manufacture all it needs. It is not very abundant in food, and is stored in the liver for future use.
Vitamin E – This fat-soluble vitamin is stored in many places; the heart, liver, reproductive organs, fatty tissue, and muscles. It basically works for the nervous system.

When we consume acid forming foods (Click here to download your free chart) our body needs to compensate by borrowing from our alkaline reserves. This can mean your reserve of calcium can be depleted. That’s right, your body will actually take calcium from your bones! If this cycle keeps happening it can lead to osteporosis (a weakened bone structure).
Overly acidic body condition will eventually lead to your body breaking down, beyond repair. This is the basis of a new theory on the aging process, that associates aging and degenerative diseases with accumulation of acid waste products in the body.
When acid wastes enter the blood circulation, the blood, in attempting to maintain the correct pH, will store acid wastes in various parts of the body. Over time these wastes will overburden your system. In an attempt to remedy the situation, your body will retain water to dilute the acid waste, causing increased bodyweight.
We need help to maintain the correct pH. Why because we are eating acid forming foods daily. Also, emotional and physical stress, such as anger, anxiety, insufficient sleep and stress itself can contribute to an overly acidic body.
