Keys to Extraordinary Health

 

  Enhance energy, metabolism & digestion

 1.  First you want to begin by getting raw greens in your diet…here are some simple ways to keep you motivated;

  • Make a simple salad with Spinach, Romaine, Kelp, Arugula or any leafy green (not Iceberg lettuce, it is not green and therefore has no nutrient value)
  • Juicing (Using any fresh vegetable and adding either, green apples, pineapple or natural sweetener i.e., Stevia, Xylitol, Raw honey, Sweet nectar or Coconut Sugar)
  • Supplement with a raw green in either a powder or a capsule (AloeLife daily greens, New Vitality Royal blend and Amazing grass all taste great and are some of my personal favorites)

2.  Increase your fiber intake, you need 25-35 grams per day. The average western diet only supplies approximately 10 g per day!

Fiber rich foods:

  • Whole sprouted grains ie,  Quinoa, Amaranth, Millet, Buckwheat, etc.
  • Legumes, including Flax seed, Coconut, Garbanzo beans,Lentils, Adzuki beans, etc.
  • Sprouted Sunflower seeds, Pumpkin seeds, Sesame seeds, etc.

3.  Consume Raw vitamins and Minerals derived from whole foods, not inorganic minerals…synthetics are made from by-products and anything which will not work!

Two principles:

  • Have nutrient intelligence…The nutrients from food natural nutrition knows how to deliver the nutrients appropriately. You don’t know what you don’t know.
  • Vitamins are best from raw food , organisms in soil brings the dead in food to life by feeding the living organisms, each contain a sequence code of amino acids, enzymes and other essential nutrients.
  • Don’t take vitamins if you don’t “feel a difference”, just as dietary nutrition is effective in your well being, same goes with quality nutritional supplements

4.  Unlock your health potential regardless of genetics or predispositions!

  • It all starts in the ‘Gut’, this is the number one most important function of health in the body…The gastrointestinal system!
  • Taking care of the Gut will take care of you…This principle cannot be emphasized enough!
  • Proper cleansing and detoxify (NOT; Colon Blow, The master cleanse with Lemon and cayenne, coffee enemas or colonic)
  • Critically recommended for EVERYONE, cleansing 4 times per year for 7 days each time.

A Detox Diet (also called a cleansing diet) will remove toxins and poisons from your body. The idea of a good detox diet is to eat pure and natural foods that will aid the function of the lymph, kidneys, and liver. All foods that hinder the regime will be avoided.

Detox diets are controversial. Many feel that most of the so-called “medical science” presented in these diets is nothing more than fiction. It is true that most of these diets have quite severe restrictions, and should be embarked upon with great care. A Raw food cleanse: A generic diet advocating consumption of raw, uncooked food only. Follow the vegetarian, mediterranean diet…it is science not a gimmick!

Body detoxifying basics:

Clean, Green & Lean, is written by Walter Crinnion, a naturopathic doctor who is one of the world’s leading authorities on environmental medicine . He explains that most diet plans don’t work because they overlook an important factor; our exposure to toxins from the food we eat and our environment. He says that no matter how much you diet or exercise, you will have difficulty losing weight if you have a high level of toxins in your body.

Recommended Foods

Organic fruit and vegetables, organic eggs, Alaskan salmon, shrimp, chicken, turkey breast, chicken breast, tofu, almond, rice or coconut milk, raw cultured yogurt, corn tortillas, gluten-free breads & pasta, brown rice, kidney beans, pinto beans, macadamias, pecans, walnuts, organic butter, olive oil, plant protein such as Brown rice, pea, hemp & vegetable protein, rice bran, green tea. Replace refined sugar and other deleterious sweeteners (artificial)with;  Stevia, xylitol, Coconut sugar, Raw honey, Agave Nectar, Organic cane sugar, etc.

These natural foods can be found at your local Health food stores or in the Organic sections at your Grocery store or Food market.

5.  Get more REST, SUNLIGHT, PURE WATER, LOVE AND HUGS

  • Consuming raw foods not only deliver nutrients and helps hydration but also facilitates in eliminating waste better than anything!
  • Boost probiotics (The healthy germs/bacteria)

There is good and bad of every kind of food compound:

  • Protein (Organic plant/inorganic meat)
  • Sugar (plant/refined)
  • Bacteria/germ (Probiotic flora/fungi & microbes)
  • Minerals (Organic plant/inorganic~metals)
  • Chemicals (such as Serotonin/refined sugar)
  • Carbohydrates (Complex/simple)

And so on… All of these good food compounds are again, derived from plant base molecular structures!

You need probiotics if;

  • You did NOT have natural birthing of a vaginal delivery vs. a cesarean section, or c-section, which is the delivery of a baby through a surgical incision in the mother’s abdomen and uterus
  • You have ever taken or do take any antibiotics, they actually uproot the good bacteria..Anti-Bio-tic means, ANTI-BODY or LIFE  and Pro-Bio-tics means PRO-LIFE!
1. (n.) antibiotic any of a large group of chemical substances, as penicillin and streptomycin, that are produced by various microorganisms and fungi, have the capacity in dilute solutions to inhibit the growth of or to destroy bacteria and other microorganisms, and are used in the treatment of infectious diseases.2. (adj.) antibiotic of or involving antibiotics.Etymology: (1895–1900)
Definition of ‘antibiotic’ Princeton’s WordNet
1. (adj) antibiotic, antibiotic drug
a chemical substance derivable from a mold or bacterium that can kill microorganisms and cure bacterial infections
Yep! Antibiotics are  microorganisms and fungi derivable from a mold or bacterium that destroy beneficial bacteria which support good health and defend against microorganisms. Doesn’t it seem absurd to inoculate your body with microorganisms or disease-causing bacteria to attempt destroying other microorganisms or disease-causing bacteria? So the question is, why would you choose antibiotics in place of probiotics?

  • If you eat dairy, meat, eggs, etc.
  • If you ever have bathed, swam, or had a shower or drank chlorinated water!
  • If you ever have consumed sugar
  • If you have ever experienced stress or been upset!

These are additional ways to boost these healthy germs aka probiotics:

*Consume cultured media:

  • Cultured raw yogurt
  • Meso
  • Kambucha
  • Kefir
  • Raw apple cidar vinegar
  • Raw milk
  • Raw Goats milk

These cultured media and raw probiotics contain:

  • Proteins
  • Enzymes
  • Good germs/bacteria
  • Vitamins and Minerals

Boost these critical warriors that protect your body by these live probiotics!

6.   Enzymes are the spark of life, they assist in breaking down and digesting foods. The common adage is true “you are what you eat’ and even further “you are what you digest”…that which you eat and cannot digest will be held against you.

  • Only eat WHEN you are hungry!

If you consume healthy foods, you will only need to eat WHEN you are hungry! When you are on the standard western diet you are malnourished, the imbalance of not supplying sufficient nutrients will cause you to feel inclined to eat more because you are craving nutrients, hence fatigue and obesity!

  • Chew foods slowly and more thoroughly to develop your gastric digestive juices and assist you in digesting foods (this process begins by chewing, by helping you to breakdown the food that is entering your digestive tract. That may also be why when you chew gum you may notice acidity develop in the stomach (heartburn or acid reflux) because these juices enter with no food to breakdown.
  • Raw enzymes- discourages the process of; bloating, discomfort, flatulence, indigestion or other digestion abnormalities of undigested food particles.  Eating raw fresh plant foods contain these food enzymes and prevent the discomfort and gastrointestinal complications.

7.  Get your nutritional supplements from whole food!

Proteins are the building blocks of: Skin, Hair, Nails, Muscles, Tissue, Glands, etc. Consume natural sources of plant proteins to ensure digestive efficacy and keep the the building blocks of your body healthy!

8.  Dive into the ocean of wellness!

People who live closer the ocean are generally the healthiest because of the rich sea nutrients (sea vegetables)!

Greenland, Iceland, N California, etc.

Eskimos of old and The Japanese of today consume omega 3 fatty acids and the healthiest diet derived of powerful ocean nutrients such as; EPA & DHA from Ultra Pure, High Potency Fish Oil Plus Amplified Benefits of antioxidants from Astaxanthin and Fucoxanthin, health-promoting compounds from the ocean: Ultra pure, high potency fish oil rich in EPA and DHA form.

These rich nutrients are found in fish such as:

  • Wild Salmon
  • Wild Sockeye, from Seaweed
  • Seaweed (found in sushi)

These critical elements of sea nutrients help:

  • Hormones (Glandular and Endocrine system)
  • Memory & Concentration by supplying blood and oxygenation to the brain
  • Is also Fat soluble
  • Helps assist in joint health by repairing connective tissue, anti-inflammatory and lubricating your joints, etc.

9. The amount of energy required on a daily basis and the energy consumed determines your metabolic function–the amount of energy burned!

Simple keys to increasing your metabolism:

  • Build more muscle with strength training. It takes more energy to build muscle consequently burning fat calories in the process!
  • Look for opportunities to stay active, take the stairs, park further away in shopping centers, go for a jog or run, while shopping walk around in the mall or department stores, walk with your dog, children or significant other, swim, exercise, get involved with active hobbies or sports, play with children, etc…
  • Eat small meals every 2-4 hours (this could include, healthy shakes, raw bars, salads, handful of fruit or raw nuts, etc.)
  • Get sufficient rest (7-8 hrs)
  • Start every morning with a light meal, particularly fruit and protein to burn fuel fast,  this one is critical to beginning to stimulate your metabolic activity. (NOT COFFEE! Yerba Mate and Green tea are healthier alternatives)
