Eating your way back to health

The key to a healthy body is based on the quality of your cells. In order to both survive and prosper, cells must have oxygen, water, nutrients (potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, zinc and other trace minerals) and be able to to eliminate their own waste.

All of these things are dependent on the quality of your blood. For the cells to remain healthy your blood must remain slightly alkaline. When there is an imbalance, an acid level increase causes the cells to clump together and the blood has difficulty travelling through the capillaries to nourish the cells. To restore the alkaline balance you need to drink more pure living water and eat alkaline rich food.

The Power of Live Foods

Our bodies function on subtle electromagnetic currents. All cells communicate with each other via tiny electrical impulses. So, when we eat food, it is broken down into tiny particles called colloids. The energy in food is measured in megahertz (MHz). If we eat something lifeless, or with low energy frequency, you actually take energy to break the food down. The food we eat must be living, energetically alive, food that carry nutrients and energy to our cells.

THE THREE MANDATES FOR HEALTH

1. Stop the Poisoning

  • Emotional
  • Physical
  • Nutritional
  • Environmental

 

2. Cleanse and Detoxify

  • Open the channels of elimination by cleansing the colon
  • Stimulate the flow of lymph to build the immune system (achieved by movement)
  • Oxygenate the system with deep abdominal breathing
  • Provide adequate hydration

 

3. Revitalise and Regenerate 

  • Provide your body with the nutrients it needs
  • Structural integrity and aerobic power
  • Emotional power
  • Hydrate the body

In a normal healthy diet, a ration of four parts alkaline to one part acid is needed to maintain your blood at an ideal pH of 7.365

This is a guide to Alkaline and Acid forming foods.  It's worth considering what type of food the diet in our culture mainly consists of and then also consider the increasing incidence of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other conditions in the western world.  Is it a coincidence?

WATER

Water is essential for cellular function, including the brain. Water makes up half the body weight of the human body. With normal daily activity the body loses up to 4 litres of water per day. To rehydrate the body it is best to sip water slowly all day. Recommended intake is approximately 1 litre per 25 kg (less if cold). Or half your body weight (in lbs) in ozs. Eg if you weigh 100 lbs, then your ideal intake is 50 ozs. One glass of water is approximately 8 ozs.

It’s about balance

It's important to remember that, like everything in life, it's about balance. You need to eat some acid-forming foods too. For more comprehensive information and a list of alkaline and acid foods, and a few other simple suggestions, find the full article at www.holistichealthmelb.com.au

So why should I care about this stuff?

Have you ever wondered why so many people experience aches and pains and disease as they get older? It has more to do with the accumulation of toxins in their body and lack of movement, than old age. I find it ironic that most people plan for their retirement by contributing to Superannuation, but don’t consider educating themselves about health and making changes to their diet or lifestyle until they begin to experience ill-health or get that dreaded diagnosis from their Doctor. Planning for optimum health so that you can enjoy your Superannuation starts now! Talk to Keren about simple changes that you can make now so that you can enjoy an adventurous, healthy and vibrant old age.
