“No matter what your present health status is, we can significantly improve it
adding quality and joy to your life.”

The nutritional value of the foods we eat nowadays is the lowest in the history of humanity, and the pollution of the environment we live in is at all time record highs.

Therefore, it is more challenging for us to be healthy, then it was for our ancestors. Toxic elements entering our body every single day and excessive stress most of us experience on a regular basis creates oxidative damage and inflammatory reactions, which can be very destructive to us by changing the metabolism of our cells and even affecting our DNA.

Many experts believe that oxidative stress as well as inflammation are the causes of premature aging, cancer, cardiovascular diseases and other health problems.

We not always have control over many factors that affect our health, but the ones which we can control, we should modify and utilize to our best advantage.

Whether you are seeking help with complex health problems or desire to preserve your existing good health, there are a few basic elements which are very important.

They are:

1.) Clean water to drink, fresh air to breathe

2.) Proper nutrition

3.) Adequate physical movement

4.) Proper mental and emotional attitude

Start your path toward your peak health potential with the following simple recommendations:

1.) Purify Your Environment ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ TOP

  • Remove all toxic chemicals from your household. This includes: chemical cleaning agents, detergents, pesticides, insect repellents etc. Do not use “lawn care” because despite the name that implies a benefit to your lawn, it highly increases the risk of cancer for your family and your pets.

          Pesticides are the most fraudulent assault on American health and the health of the world . 
          A study from
the Harvard School of Public Health, has determined that exposure to even very low levels 
          of pesticides can increase the risk of Parkinson’s disease by 70 percent. [1]

  • Remove all processed, artificial food from your refrigerator and pantry. Processed foods contain harmful ingredients including artificial flavors, colors, preservatives and thickening agents such as carrageenan. These ingredients have been linked to many health problems including allergies, asthma, ADHD, digestive disorders and even cancer. A 2006 study from the Department of Medicine at the University of Illinois concluded that the common food additive, carrageenan, has been show to cause ulcerations in the gastrointestinal tract and influence tumor formations in the colon. [2]
    Therefore it is critical to learn to interpret ingredient labels of the foods you buy, not just the nutritional facts. It is
    equally important to know what type of fat a certain food contains, as well as how much fat there is.
    For example, take a can of sardines in olive oil and a can of sardines in cottonseed oil. Olive oil is a health fat as
    oppose to cottonseed oil that is a by-product of the cotton industry and is heavily loaded with pesticides.

  • Remove all synthetic cosmetics and skin care products from your home; Many popular commercial skin care lines contain toxic ingredients such as phthalates, parabens, glycols, in addition to artificial colors and fragrance. You can absorb a great deal of toxins through your skin. One also has to be aware that many skin care companies will have the word “organic” incorporated on their product label or in advertising materials, however, when examined more closely, their products may contain several of the above mentioned chemicals.

2.) Feed Yourself Nutritious Food -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TOP

  • Eat locally grown, organic food whenever possible. This type of food not only tastes better, has more nutrients, but is also free of toxic chemicals including pesticides. If you are unable to obtain such food, the least you should do is to avoid foods which contain artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

          As I mentioned before, familiarize yourself with ingredient labels of the foods you eat.

  • Do not use artificial sweeteners such as Aspartame or Splenda; they may create many dangerous side-effects (including worsening a person’s diabetes) and may even lead to the development of brain cancer.[3] Due to a growing number of health concerns regarding the use of aspartame, Ajinomoto the producer of aspartame, began rebranding the artificial sweetener as "AminoSweet".

          According to the American Diabetic Association drinking diet soda can actually make you put on weight. 
          The more you drink, the more you gain.

          The risk of obesity is as follows:

    • A 36.5 percent increase for 1/2 can consumption each day.
    • A 37.5 percent increase for 1/2 to one can consumption each day.
    • A 54.5 percent increase for 1 to 2 cans consumed each day.
    • A 57.1 percent increase for more than 2 cans of diet soda consumed each day.

  • Do not eat any hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils (partially hydrogenated cottonseed oil contains high amounts of arsenic). 
  • Do not eat meat and dairy from animals that were fed antibiotics, hormones and animal by-products. Meats from animals that were raised free-range, eating the food Mother Nature intended for them, are of the highest nutritional value, quality and taste.
  • Prepare your food in a correct way. Try to incorporate more raw foods to your diet. Foods that cannot be eaten raw, should be steamed, stir-fried, or cooked slowly. Avoid frying or grilling as much as possible since these food preparation processes can create hydrogenated fats and charred meats can be carcinogenic. Deep frying or grilling foods can create high levels of AGEs (advanced glycation end products) that accelerate the aging process of the human body.

  • Do not use microwave ovens, they change the chemical structure of the food and destroy most of the vital nutrients. Even the most nutritious food, after being processed in a microwave, loses its bioavailability for the human body.

  • A study conducted at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and the University Institute for Biochemistry revealed that food heated in microwave ovens has a negative effect on blood chemistry. Even vegetables cooked in microwaves increase LDL (bad) cholesterol while decreasing HDL (good)cholesterol. The study also found that micro-waved food decreases the number of red and white blood cells in the human body.[4]

3.) Drink Plenty of Purified Water ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TOP

  • Tap water is not acceptable. Municipal water systems are inefficient in removing all toxins and pathogens. Tap water is usually contaminated by chemicals from lead, arsenic, mercury and other heavy metals to herbicides and petroleum by-products. The chlorine in tap water kills-off beneficial gut bacteria and may potentially disrupt the intestinal microflora. It has recently been discovered that tap water from the midwest region of the United States contains dangerously high levels of the herbicide atrazine (used on corn). The Environmental Protection Agency has categorized the herbicide atrazine as a possible endocrine disruptor. Scientific studies have linked atrazine in drinking water to birth defects in children, developmental problems, an increased risk of certain cancers as well as harmful alteration of the normal hormonal function.

  • A high quality water filter is a good investment. Water is necessary for body hydration, healthy metabolism and assists the process of detoxification.

  • You may have a few cups a day of organic green tea. Green tea can improve your metabolism, balance the ratio of LDL cholesterol to HDL cholesterol and is an excellent source of antioxidants known as catechin polyphenols. If you like fruit juices, drink only those which are organic and do not have added sugar, other sweeteners or preservatives.

4.) Start Moving ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TOP

  • Walking is one of the simplest exercises, with some of the greatest health benefits. It can reduce the risk of many degenerative diseases including heart attack, stroke and osteoporosis. Walking also has a positive effect on your body’s metabolism by decreasing cholesterol levels.

          According to a Harvard study, “brisk walking for an hour a day, five days a week, can cut the risk of stroke 
          in half.” (participation included 11000 men).

  • Take a walk whenever you can, walk up a flight of stairs instead of taking an elevator, but do not jog along the busy streets or highways; you will inhale contaminated air filled with cadmium.

  • Get rid of motorized lawn mowers and buy one which you can push or an electric instead of the one which runs on gasoline. You will not only decrease global warming but also have more oxygen to breathe in your surrounding atmosphere.

          According to the Union of Concerned Scientists: “One gas mower running for an hour emits an equivalent 
          amount of pollutants as eight new cars driving 55 mph for the same amount of time.”
          The EPA states that one gas lawn mower, produces 80 pounds of carbon dioxide each year.

5.) If You Have a Backyard, Grow an Organic Garden -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TOP

  • Organic gardening is a method of growing plants without the use of synthetic chemicals (pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers). It is more cost effective and efficient then conventional gardening. By not using synthetic chemicals, biodiversity and quality of the soil is significantly improved allowing for greater water retention therefore generating higher yields. It has been documented that organic farms produce a harvest 20 to 40 percent greater then farms that use pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, synthetic fertilizers, etc.

    There are easy-to-grow varieties of fruit trees which are better then 
    ornamental and require no pesticides, some types (such as sea-buckthorn
    can actually improve soil quality.

    •     Organic gardening allows you to significantly increase your intake of
  •     essential nutrients. Food grown fresh from your garden and eaten within
  •     several hours of harvest contains essential sterols and sterolins (natural
  •     cholesterol lowering substances and immune system modulators) that
  •     otherwise dissipate with time. One of the most appealing benefits of
  •     organic gardening is delectable fruits and vegetables that even picky
  •     children will love to eat.

    A landmark study of organic food was conducted by the European
    Union in 2007 and concluded that organic vegetables and fruits had
    40 percent more antioxidants than conventional. In addition, organic
    milk was 60 percent richer in essential nutrients then factory farm milk.[5]

  • Working in your organic garden is a dynamic way of loosing weight. Did you know that you can burn more calories during an hour working in a garden, then during an hour running on a treadmill? –Prevention Magazine

6.) Start Using High Quality Nutritional Supplements -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TOP

  • Each day you are receiving doses of toxins from a polluted environment, but usually you are not getting daily doses of vital nutrients critical for optimal health. Despite the abundance of food in America, many people fall into the category of being malnourished because they lack the appropriate levels of essential nutrients in their body.

          Therefore we see a necessity to use nutritional supplements.

          It is wise to make an investment in high quality nutritional supplements. The low-priced ones, generic, may
          contain toxic elements, as well as artificial colors, preservatives, etc.
          Scientific studies (Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health) show that high quality supplements may 
          be the best health insurance you can get. They neutralize chemicals, counteract free radicals and may
          decrease the risk of many degenerative diseases. In some cases nutrients from natural supplements are 
          absorbed better then nutrients from food (such as chelated minerals).

          We offer top-of-the-line, carefully researched natural supplements and health products, at the best value.

7.) Have a Positive Mental Attitude ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ TOP

  • A study from NASA showed that our brain can influence our DNA. Make your influence a positive one. You can see a glass as half full or half empty, that is your choice.

          Learn to meditate and relax, start a yoga class or simply begin noticing the beauty of the world that surrounds
          you. Begin concentrating on positive emotions instead of dwelling on negative thoughts.

          Release the stressors that disrupt your emotional wellbeing as high stress levels have been shown to 
          accelerate premature aging and many increase the risk for many degenerative diseases (including 
          cardiovascular disease, stroke, auto-immune diseases, etc).

          The human body was designed to spend time outdoors in nature. Make time for yourself to do the same. 
          It is well documented that negative ions found in clean unpolluted environments, near running water or in 
          mountainous regions have beneficial effects on human health and especially mind relaxation.

It is easier to prevent a disease than to try to reverse its consequences.

If your desire is to truly be healthy, you have to be dedicated to live a healthy lifestyle. Living a healthy way of life is not as complex as it may seem. In reality it can be quite simple and undoubtedly very rewarding. Once you discover the secret to this new life, you will wonder why you never made the decision to transition sooner.
