To inspire you to take charge of your health and to maintain wellness as a state of being we decided to share these tips with you. Simple really, you are what you eat so put in your mouth only food that is close to its original form. If it has been packaged, frozen, minced, preserved and added to, it is not much good any more, often containing toxic additives which are poisonous to the body and lacking vital enzymes which are abundant in fresh, living food.
Supplement your diet with quality vitamins and minerals - minerals in colloidal form can be absorbed easily, and are recommended. Another great source of minerals is natural sea salt (Himalayan Rock salt is excellent). Vitamin C keeps your white blood cells active, protecting the body against toxins and bacteria. Antioxidants keep you young and your cells happy.
White refined sugar is a toxic drug, too refined for our bodies. Sugar substitutes such as aspartame and splenda, are highly toxic to the body. (found in Diet Drinks and most chewing gum). Don't eat them under any circumstances.
Microwave ovens have been banned in Russia, for good reason. The agitation of the water molecules in the food, which causes the heating process, continues when the food is removed from the oven and you eat molecularly changed food, which is stressful to the body.
Avoid drinking with meals; it dilutes your digestive juices, creating indigestion and poorly assimilated nutrients.
Avoid deep fried foods, canola oil and margarine, which contain transfatty acids. These are hardening to the cell wall, and cause premature aging and disease. Regularly consume essential fatty acids.. a good source is Flax seed oil.. however refrigerate it and keep away from heat, light and oxygen as these are destructive to it. 1-2 tablespoons daily are recommended.
Milk is for babies and cows, not adult humans. Educate yourself to substitute soya milk, however be aware soy isolates are difficult to digest so read labels, and buy only soy milk made from whole soy beans. Ask for organic, and avoid eating genetically modified foods. Oat milk or rice milk is also available if you are sensitive to soy.
Filter water, or buy spring water. Cook in filtered water. Tap water contains chlorine, flouride, heavy metals and other unsavory toxins. A good water filter is great insurance for your health.
Most chicken is not clean meat. Chickens are fed hormones to fatten them and antibiotics to keep them healthy. They are grown from egg to table in six weeks! If you have any form of hormonal imbalance eliminate all chicken (except for free-range) entirely from your diet.
So what's our recipe for staying healthy... clean food, plenty of clean water, lots of fresh fruit and veg, learn something new to keep your brain cells multiplying, exercise regularly, and take time out to relax!
