The Fountain Of Youth Really Does Exist!

Oct 29, 2007
Not as you might picture it, but I believe we can turn back the clock.

You might find this hard to believe...but our bodies don't' actually age, we don't get sick, and we don't get diseases - our cells do. Cellular health is critical to reversing the destructive process. Antioxidants are the key against free-radicals.( damaged cells ).

But first we must know the enemy. What is attacking our body and making it age faster than it should and what can we do about it.

Here are two areas:

1. Toxins that we are exposed to.
2. What we eat.

Let's look at Toxins. Never has mankind been exposed to such an array of toxins then in the world today. Think about what you are exposed to on a daily basis. Airborne oils and fumes from cooking, Chlorine and many more chemicals in the steamy air as you shower. You do breath while you shower, right? The use of hair sprays, makeup, deodorant, gasoline and diesel fumes on the morning and evening rush hour commute, perfumes from other co-workers, cigarette smoke, cleaners still lingering in the air from last nights cleaning crew. If you work in the city, what other chemicals are in the air we breath. Globally, China's problem is our problem. The negative effects of electrical energy: Cells phones, computers, TV's, florescent lighting, the sun. Drinking ordinary tap water. And then there is prescription and non prescription drugs. Never has our bodies been exposed to a more dangerous group of toxins than Pharmaceutical drugs. We are bombarded by Ads on TV and in magazines. Are some needed, yes, are they over prescribed, absolutely yes. These are just a few of the hundreds of toxic examples you can probably think of that you are exposed to throughout the day. All these infiltrate our bodies by breathing, drinking and thru the skin. In a nutshell we are bombarded with toxins almost 24/7.

Let's look at what we eat. Our Obsession with food - FAST Fried foods, sugar filled coffee, tea, fruit juices, syrups and soft drinks ( sugar with chemicals in a can), bleached white flour pasta and pizza, convenience snacks and foods that are polluted with preservatives, colors, chemicals and very little nutrition Processed foods that in the early 1900's only 5% of our foods we ate were processed and now it is 95%, all loaded with sugar, high fructose corn syrup and preservatives (chemicals).

Lord only knows what is in the commercially prepared restaurant foods we consume. We trust the establishments and their employee's to do the right things and follow all the guide lines, but do they? Do they really wash their hands after using the restroom or scratching their heads or coughing and sneezing. or picking their nose We are people and we all do these things. If you get my drift, knowing all this can really make you paranoid. Commercial produce, fruits and meats are injected with chemicals and colors to make them look appealing and enzyme inhibitors to keep them from rotting. Are you getting it ? Is any of this making sense? Where is the nutrition that our immune system needs daily to fight this battle on aging.

Years of toxic exposure and our bodies lack of resources to fight them causes INFLAMMATION, your bodies way of fighting back but also it's worst enemy. Folks, we are burning up on the inside. Cells are being mutated or destroyed with years of toxin exposure and build up. Our bodies immune systems are at the very limits of their capacity. Now add to the problem the SAD diet (standard American diet) and microwaves, this just makes your cells go crazy,, as in free radical crazy. These bad cells and toxins accumulate in your muscles, your bones, your skin, your organs, your brain, anywhere where your body can store them because there are just too many for our immune system to handle. You can without a doubt see the cause behind disease. Disease and cancer doesn't just sneak up on you. It actually starts at a very early age.

So, what can we do about it.

There is no magical pill or magical nutritional supplement you can take to cure this problem.
It requires a change of heart and much discipline with commitment.
NO, it is not going to be easy or quick, but
This is a recipe guaranteed to work.
Our bombardment with toxins is inevitable, but there are several solutions we can use.

Look for a more natural approach to hair, skin and cleaning products, install a filter on your shower head at home, install a reverse osmosis or distiller for all drinking water or buy bottled water. Change furnace filters more frequent, find a park or wooded area to walk in frequently for more oxygen. NO you don't have to change to all of this in two weeks. This change in life style may take several years to implement. The problem took many years to be created.

YOU have to look at foods and eating habits differently. It's all about needs Not wants. Try looking at the way you used to eat as causing sickness and "death."

Our bodies need vitamins, minerals and very high amounts of antioxidants, and lots of them, and I mean way above the RDA amounts to begin to have a chance to deal with the toxins we have stored in our bodies and are exposed to daily. When it comes to supplements, quality is everything. Are you worth it?

NO more fried foods, sugar including anything with sugar added, tap water, table salt, pork, shelled fish, breads with white flour, margarine, canola oils, very limited amounts of pasta and starches, white rice. No processed snacks "Junk Food" of any kind. Limit red meats to once per week not fried or grilled.

Try cooking at home. NO more fast food or restaurant foods...Ok, maybe every blue moon or no more than once per week.

Have you quit already.. Most people say that they would rather die than give up all these old ways. AND that is the problem. The old ways will certainly produce a miserable feeling of ill health and then disease with early death.

Ready for the Yes's to eat?

Remember, everyone is different. When eating foods make a list of foods which seem to bother you. Listen to your body.

This information is by no means conclusive, just a place to start.

Memorize these words: Chew and dry

Digestion starts in the mouth, your saliva secrets an enzyme called pryalin which immediately starts breaking down carbohydrates..

Chew and Chew your food into a paste and don't drink as you eat.

When you drink with your meals you have just diluted or killed your digestive and immune systems first line of defense. Stomach Hydrochloric Acid. And yes it is an acid, so strong that very few bad microorganisms can survive when exposed to it.

Let's start by eating some fresh fruit, but follow the fruit rule, eat it alone or leave it alone. Don't combine with other food groups. That could be toxic.

Eat fresh vegetables raw or steamed. Cut up and snack on. Remember when food is cooked you will usually kill the digestive enzymes in it. More of a reason to supplement with food enzymes.

Eat Green leafy vegetables, not just iceberg lettuce, daily

Protein - (means prime importance) we can only get from our diet. Eat 4 eggs per week

Most of us are "fat" deficient. We need the Essential (meaning it must come from our diet ) fatty Acids - EFA's, the good fats.

OMEGA 3's: Flax seed oil, Safflower oil and nuts or take a quality Omega 3 supplement.

OMEGA 6's: We normally get more than enough thru a healthy diet (vegetable oils). We need a 4 to 1 ratio of 6 to 3's.

OMEGA 9: 6 + 3 = 9, Our body can make omega 9 if omega 3 & 6 are present.

Eat figs, raisins, grapes, pomegranates, honey

Eat fish or grain fed chicken or turkey more than red meats.

Eat seeds, nuts, Wheat, Barley, Oats and an apple daily for fiber. Fiber is crucial for removing toxins stored in the digestive tract.

Use Virgin Olive Oil but not for cooking, coconut oil is better.

WOW ! If you read your Bible and these foods sounds familiar, it is because most of this is God's foods found in the Bible. All these foods are rich in Antioxidants.

Drink pure water many times throughout the day and try adding a little lemon juice ( fresh squeezed ). Lemon juice closely matches the bile in the liver. If the liver is strong and healthy then the individual is strong and healthy.

It is best to drink around 4 oz at a time every hr.

You Clean your body outside mostly everyday, what about your inside ? Use a complete digestive cleansing at least two times per year. Spring and Fall works well

Take a High Quality, high potency complete multi vitamin-mineral supplement daily. There are many in liquid form.

Taking a Food Enzyme with every meal is a must. Our foods simply do not contain the enzymes to digest the food unless you grow it yourself or are confident in the source. Enzymes are the workers that break down proteins, fats and carbohydrates so the body can use them.

Take a Probiotic at least once per day. Have you ever taken an antibiotic ? Biotic means life, so antibiotic means anti- life. They kill bad bacteria which causes infections, but they also kill the good bacteria. You have billions of them, the friendly guys that live in your intestines and Colon that your immune simply can't live without. Ever heard of Yeast overgrowth or parasites. The good guys keep them in check. "Fast" ( drink only liquids ) a few days every month and let your digestive system have a well deserved rest.

Last but most important is the word Antioxidant. Drink quality Green Tea, as much as you can stand, noni juice, eat grapes, pomegranates and organic fruits and vegetables, Vitamin C and E as talked about previously. They help put out the fire of inflammation.

This is eating at it's best and only the tip of the iceberg. You will be amazed at the how little food your body will need once you provide the nutrition that is lacking. I am very serious, when your body gets what it needs, you won't be craving to eat all the time.

Life becomes an awesome journey when you are not a prisoner to food. Energy increases, access weight just falls off, and most symptoms of bloating, gut pains, joint pain, headaches, allergies, skin problems, and that I feel lousy feeling will begin to disappear.

You can turn the clock back.
May God continue to Bless your efforts to better health.
