Optimal Health & Longevity
Step 1 Watch Food Matters
Healthy living starts with addressing your belief systems and then following with consistent action towards total mind-body wellness. Understanding the problems with conventional agriculture and the real motives behind the health care and pharmaceutical industries is a critical step in making discerning decisions for your health. This film helps you not to fall victim of these revolving door establishments. Watching Food Matters is the first step in taking control of your health.
Step 2 Get A Good Quality Juicer
Juicing is critical for optimal health as it helps to deliver life-giving nutrients to the cells and eliminate toxins. This simple process builds immunity helping activate and strengthen the body's immune system. A good quality ‘cold pressed’ juicer is an essential tool in the kitchen.
Step 3 Shop Organic
Using organic produce in the process of healing the body is essential. Reducing toxic load in all forms is a primary aim so as to reduce the load on one's immune system allowing it to activate the body's own healing mechanism. It should go without saying but eat less processed foods and more wholesome foods! This means reading labels. The fewer ingredients the better, and if you see chemical additives, preservatives, artificial colors or flavors (usually represented by numbers) leave it on the shelf or as David Wolfe says "use it as a house brick".
Step 4 Eat More Superfoods
Superfoods are a special category of foods found in nature. By definition they are calorie sparse and nutrient dense meaning they pack a lot of punch for their weight as far as goodness goes. They are superior sources of anti-oxidants and essential nutrients - nutrients we need but cannot make ourselves. Incorporating more of them into your diet makes perfect sense for optimal health.
Step 5 Learn How To Prepare Delicious Healthy Foods
Knowing its important to include fresh/raw foods in your diet and actually doing it are two different things. We have received hundreds of emails from people asking to be shown how to prepare more healthy and delicious meals. This cooking class series on DVD is the best way to start preparing delicious and easy meals for the whole family to enjoy.
Step 6 Detoxify Your Body
It is super important to remove unwanted toxins from the system that may be interfering with the natural pathways of the brain and vital organs. The Food Matters Detox and Rejuvenation Guide is an informative guide that will teach you how to apply the principles addressed in the film. In it is included a 3-day step-by-step guided detox program complete with shopping list and recipes.
Step 7 Supplements
Supplementing your diet with essential immune boosting nutrients is essential part of any healing program. Learn more about synthetic vs natural wholefood supplements and what might suit you best.
Step 8 Read The Following Books On Longevity
There are many must-read books on Health and Longevity and we have put together a list of some of our A-Listers. Many include recipes, all of them have lots of important research and most importantly they are easy to read and from reputable sources.
Step 9 Visit a Colon Hydro-therapist
Ask any coroner, people with excess weight carry tons of impacted fecal matter in their colon. This fecal matter is rotting away and leeching toxins into the blood stream and can become a precursor to illness. Doing a colon cleanse is simple and painless and helps to flush out the waste in a fast and hygienic way. To find a professional colon hydro-therapist in your local area use this practitioner directory.
Step 10 Practice Yoga And Meditation
A regular practice of Yoga and meditation has a profound effect on physiological systems and one’s state of mind. Yoga is well known for its therapeutic health benefits, especially as it is such a great tool to help to deal with stress.
Step 11 Get Your Teeth right
The mounting evidence connecting the incidence of infected root canals and health problems are profound. This is an area that Dr Gerson and Dr Joseph Issels considered vitally important. Get to a holistic dentist and have your teeth checked for amalgams leeching toxic mercury into your blood system or infected root canals.
Step 12 Join The Food Matters Community
Sharing your ideas and successes with other like minded people is a great way to learn and grow. Healing is as much about good nutrition and good decisions as it is about connecting with like minded individuals in a nurturing environment.
