1. Drink one quart of room temperature distilled water in the morning with the juice from half of an organic lemon. This is a good time to add the MSM and ester vitamin C (see below). Our bodies are alkaline in nature, and eating food that is dead (cooked or heated over 105 degrees), will steal enzymes from our bodies to digest it. This turns the body acidic, and thus disease starts. A lemon in room temperature water will help keep the body alkaline along with hydrating you for the day! If you only do one thing on this list, this will make the biggest difference!!! Also, keep your water away from meals. Hydrate yourself ½ hour before and 1 hour after meals. Drinking “any” fluids with your meals will dilute your digestive enzymes, thus causing a stressed digestion. (Place your distilled water in a glass pitcher and set in the sun for 20 minutes before drinking.)

2. Get at least 20 minutes of direct (must be outside, not through glass), early morning/late afternoon sunlight. This should be on as much of your body as possible. Do NOT wear any type of glasses or contacts, as this will inhibit the life giving force from the sun. Read the book Sunlight, by Kime, or The Healing Sun, by Richard Hobday. Both of these books scientifically disprove the myths about how the sun is “bad” for you and your skin, when indeed it is the life force behind all good health. Think of it this way…nothing could live or grow without sunlight, so why would we avoid it? God gave it to us for a reason: It’s part of our life; don’t avoid it!!! There are now scientific studies that conclude that sun block causes cancer rather than prevents it. Our bodies are made to produce melanin, which is our natural protective agent. This sunlight should be captured before 10:00 a.m. and after 4:00 p.m. If you’re in the sun during peak hours, shade yourself to prevent burning or skin damage.

3. Stop drinking dark colas (Coke, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper), especially diet drinks. Aspartame (found in all diet colas, even light colored) will eat the retina in your eye and cause blindness, and has also been linked to many neurological diseases and disorders. This soda contains 10% wood alcohol and turns to formaldehyde when it reaches 98 degree’s!!! All dark sodas contain Phosphoric acid!!! Phosphoric acid is the number one ingredient in naval jelly, which eats rust from cars. It is the 4th ingredient in dark sodas, and will only digest when attached to calcium. None of us have enough calcium to sustain our bodies with the diet we eat. The Phosphoric acid will leach calcium from your bones and teeth in order to get it digested. After it’s digested it will cause further complications in your nervous system. You are drinking acid when you drink dark sodas! In fact, pouring a few drops of any dark cola on a battery terminal that has been corroded will eat and dissolve the corrosion, allowing the battery to get voltage to the car and the car starting. The Highway patrol in the state of MN carries 6 to 12 cases of Coke in the trunk of their cars, and when there is an accident where they need to clean the road, they break out the Coke and throw it all over the road. Drinking one can of soda will compromise your immune system 50% up to 6 hours. It takes 25 glasses of water to offset the acidic condition that one can of soda cause in the human body.

4. All dairy products are mucous-forming to the entire body. There is no such thing as catching a cold. Colds are the bodies’ way of forcing out of your body excess mucous and other junk that you ate. Colds are not viral or bacteria based; this is a MYTH!!!!!! The reason you may get a cold when getting cold or chilled is that your body was on the edge, and you brought it down to where it couldn’t keep up with what you are placing into your mouth!!! This is the body’s way to get rid of the bad stuff and why you have a runny nose or stuffy head until the body can get rid of enough to put you back to normal…whatever that is!

5. All cooked food over 105 degrees is DEAD food and your body does not recognize what it is! Enzymes are the basis of life and give your body the tools and life force to live and rebuild your cells. Your blood recycles every 110 days if you are a female, and 120 if male. You body completely recycles every 11 months. So…whatever you stuff in your face is what you truly are. Add to your diet fresh organic veggies, fruits, seeds and nuts until you can change some of your eating habits! Using a microwave will actually change the structure of the DNA of the food or water you place in the oven. When you place this food from the microwave into your body, it does not recognize it and doesn’t know what to do with it. You are once again wasting precious energy digesting food from which you will get little or no value. Microwave ovens are outlawed in Russia and are called NUKERS!!!!! Figure it out.

6. Sugar cravings are from a lack of minerals. We cannot get minerals from processed food in a can or a box. I used to say that if you can’t read and pronounce all the words on a label, you shouldn't be eating it. Now I say that if it even has a label, you should be eating it! Sugar produces a naked carbohydrate, and can only be digested when attaching itself to minerals. So, it’s catch 22. We crave sugar due to lack of minerals and when we eat sugar it uses minerals to digest! Sugar is the number one killer in America today. If everyone eliminated sugar from their diet, 25% of all illness would subside

7. We are designed to exercise at least 20 minutes per day. You don’t have to be dripping with sweat every minute of your workout. Exercise till you break a sweat and then do a weight bearing exercise to keep your bone density strong and in place. Rebounders are a great way to cover all the muscles and systems of the body. We are designed to work like this, so don’t let the cushy life put you out of place! And don’t get radical about your exercise, as that will shorten your life and use resources that your body need to keep itself in balance!

      Everything is about balance and keeping the pendulum in the middle. Not too much Yin or Yang. Think of it as not ever forcing the body. Not too cold, not too hot. This goes for showers, food and so on. When your body is too hot, it has to work to keep you cool which in turn uses precious energy. The same goes when you are too cold. I realize there are times when we are in climates where we can’t avoid certain conditions, but the goal is to keep EVERYTHING in moderation. If you like to drink, then keep it to wine, and only a small amount, a couple days per week. Every choice you make and everything you place in your mouth will affect your life for the rest of your life. Get a Polar heart rate monitor so you can exercise properly. We should keep our heart rate within the proper range for our age. This makes a huge difference in how fast we achieve our goal of total wellness.

8. Mostbread is made with gluten, and is basically glue once it enters your body! Take some flour and water and mix it up…is this what you want to place in your body? On top of that, gluten is a protein, and 97% of the American population is allergic to this protein. It’s much too large to digest and will work its way thought your gut and get into your bloodstream. Then your white blood cells attack it as a foreign substance. Bottom line is that you have now eaten something that is causing your body to attack itself…how special is that? You will plug and coat your GI tract (from your mouth to your anus) with mucous and therefore not get many nutrients from the good food that you do eat. Many people are hypoglycemic and create Candida due to sugars and bread!!! This mucus is a protective mechanism that coats the GI tract to protect it from the dead, cooked and processed food we place in our body. The reason we can even eat it is we have the capacity to adapt. Think of the brand new baby sitting in the high chair spitting out the cooked, store-bought baby food as mom or dad “shovels” it back in. The body finally adapts and realizes that these strange humans are not going to give in. The mucus lining starts forming itself at this very moment. This is one of the reasons SO many people feel empty when just eating a salad and say that they need some food with substance. They have so much mucus lining their small intestines that they couldn’t possibly extract many nutrients from the salad.

9. Don’t take vitamins/minerals or other supplements. These only force the body, and many are made with inorganic substances that will plug your arteries. If it’s not grown out of the ground, then it’s not natural and it doesn’t belong in your body! There is one mineral that I do recommend, as it is natural. It’s called MSM and can be found at www.msm-msm.com. MSM is found in rain water and gets in and on our foods that are grown outside in the rain. This would not include food grown in a greenhouse. Any non organic fruit or vegetable is so compromised by gassing/radiation, that all the MSM (sulfur) is destroyed. Even some organic foods are lacking in MSM, due to being grown in a greenhouse. Others are compromised because they are watered with chlorinated city water, which destroys the probiotics. Go to the web site above for more information on how it plays a role! The object is to add the good food to your current diet and slowly replace and eliminate the dead food. While you are on this journey you may want to consider adding a great natural source of living whole food, equivalent to eating a dark leafy green salad. An example of such a supplement is PINES wheat grass powder or tablets, found athttp://www.wheatgrass.com.

10. The only water to drink is distilled water. Mineral water contains inorganic minerals, and the body cannot assimilate these minerals. Plants convert inorganic minerals to organic minerals, and this is their duty. Water is the catalyst of life, much like the oil for the engine of your car. It carries toxins out of the cells and into the blood stream for elimination, and takes good nutrients to the cells for regeneration. It’s the lubricant for the body, and NO other liquid can replace it. There is a book written, Your Body's Many Cries for Water, and studies, about thousands of people who have rid themselves of extra weight and many diseases by drinking more water. The body is a factory that needs to be well oiled…DRINK YOUR WATER!!!

11. Don’t eat just to eat, and don’t eat until you feel full. This is a hard one. If you eat less, you will live longer, and have fewer problems, as your body will be able to use the extra energy to keep you young and fit. Think of babies when they enter life. They sleep when they are tired and eat ONLY when they are hungry, not when something tastes good. Don’t eat before you go to bed.

      Your last meal of the day should be AT LEAST 2 hours from when you go to sleep. If you are going to eat before bed, eat fruit! Think of your body with this battery inside, and when you sleep you will be re-charging the battery. When you are awake and eating, you are “exhausting the battery". So, if you eat right before bed, then your body is expending energy when it should really be re-charging your battery, and you won’t have enough charge to get through the day. Do this enough times in your life, and you are guaranteed to get sick. Your gene pool will determine what it will manufacture (cancer, lupus, diabetes, chronic fatigue, and so on). It’s inevitable that you will break down with some type of pain, disorder and/or dis-ease if you abuse your body. Note, as you are transitioning you may eat enough to feel full or over full. Don’t punish yourself; Rome wasn’t built in a day!!!

12. Salt is a big challenge with the Standard American Diet (SAD). I believe it’s the biggest culprit in our diet, and if all people were to just eliminate salt, 15% of disease and disorder would vanish. Eat ONLY Celtic Sea Salt until you wean yourself from it completely. You will get enough salt from vegetables such as celery and cucumber; well, that’s if you decide to eat them!

13. HEAVY METALS have recently risen to the top of the list. Heavy metals are involved in 95% of all cancer patients. The top three related diseases are depression, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. The half life of mercury is 33½ years for the human body to dispose if it. These metals are so toxic and difficult to remove; we have to help the body help itself without forcing it. Nanocolloidal Detox Factors is made from living whole foods. The molecules are so small (nanoized) that they will permeate the cell wall and help restore the toxin/nutrient function, allowing the body to take over. If you feel you have ANY condition that slows you down and keeps you from total wellness, I would start with heavy metal detox as a first step. NOTE: DO NOT do a heavy metal detox unless you know the facts. You can harm yourself by doing this improperly.

I realize that the above suggestions are hard to implement all at once. I have met only one person in my life who has done this, and I don’t recommend it. Just add some of the suggestions above to your daily diet, and “slowly” think about what your body has to offer. If you were to live 90 years and party all your life but have to spend the last 5 years in a nursing home in diapers and in misery, would the first 85 years be worth it…I think not. That 5-year span will seem like 50 years, and I speak from experience.

Take it slowly and add one item per month to your lifestyle, and in one year you will be doing more than 95% of the American public, which will insure you a quality life. Always ask yourself, "Do I want “quantity” or “quality"?

Remember, it’s not about perfection, but rather, progress. Don’t put a number on how much living food you eat. Now that you are aware of what is alive and what is dead, start adding living food to your lifestyle. Don’t even worry or change your diet or think about what you want to eliminate. This is the negative approach, and with it you’re setting yourself up for failure. Simply add living food of “any” kind and eventually the bad food will be eliminated. Give your palette a chance to get back to nature, allowing the rest of your body to take the ride as well!
