Live Longer, Look Younger, & Feel Great

Jan 18, 2008
Do you believe that you are what you eat, breathe, drink, think, and do? That is what health crusader Dr. Patricia Bragg believes, and she is right. 'Your whole life will be transformed if you are a good stewart of your health'.

Dr. Bragg is Clint Eastwood's nutritionist, advised Madonna to decide what type of food to feed her first baby, has kept the Beach Boys youthful, and has kept Dr. Scholl and Conrad Hilton hearty to almost 100. She doesn't believe you have to be a Hollywood Star to follow the Bragg Healthy Lifestyle Plan.

The Bragg philosophy is based around simplicity. Anybody can follow the healthy lifestyle by realizing that the best things are free. These include fresh air, sunshine, deep breathing, exercise, good posture, smiling, and healthy loving thoughts.

Dr. Bragg urges you to take control of your health and ageing so you can live longer, look younger, and feel better everyday. If you treat your body well, you will defy the signs of ageing. Here are her Bragg Healthy Lifestyle secrets:

Start Raw

One of the best ways to supplement your body with natural enzymes is by eating raw foods. And, if you start a meal with raw foods you will be less inclined to overeat. Patricia's fresh veggie mix includes grated or chopped cabbage, grated carrots, broccoli, bell pepper, beet, celery, and cauliflower. Add a healthy dressing with raw organic apple cider vinegar and virgin olive oil. Enjoy your salad before eating any cooked dishes.

Super Rejuvenator

Begin the look younger plan by doing a distilled water fast for 24 hours. Dr. Bragg recommends you drink 7 to 9 glasses of water and that 3 of these have apple cider vinegar and raw honey added. Herbal teas and diluted fruit juices are fine. When you fast, you cleanse the workings of the inner body and this promotes self-healing. Fasting is a major rejuvenator and miracle healer because the vital force in your body is directing itself to purify the body. Fasting one day a week is a perfect way to be healthier and live longer. When you stop the fast, start by eating a light raw meal.

Bragg Live Longer, Look Younger Diet

Dr. Bragg recommends the following: Organic foods are the healthiest. Keep foods as natural as possible in the least processed form. Patricia's ideal diet is salads, raw fruits and vegetables, beans, brown rice, legumes, seeds and nuts. Garlic, onions, spices, kelp, herbs, and lemon juice are the best flavorings to use. Her company also produces Bragg liquid aminos and raw apple cider vinegar. Breathe deeply and chew slowly because your stomach has no teeth. Relax with good music and savor every bite while being grateful for your healthy food. When you feel relaxed, you will find that you need less food to satisfy your body. If you're not happy, then your mind will never be satisfied and your appetite will follow.

Digestion Miracle Boost

Take 1 tablespoon of distilled water with 1/3 teaspoon Bragg organic apple cider vinegar five minutes before each meal. Hold it in your mouth for a few seconds and swallow to stimulate saliva.

Key to Health

The key to good health is good elimination. That means you should eliminate in the toilet after each meal. Dr. Bragg advises against harsh ingredients, colonic irrigation, enemas or laxatives. Instead, she recommends fiber, liquids, and B vitamins. Excellent sources include avocados, brown rice, beans, raw wheatgerm, nuts, vegetables, brewer's yeast, and bananas.

Slow, Deep Breathing

We take breathing for granted, and worst of all, most of us tend to take shallow breaths. Deep, slow breathing does wonders for clearing the mind of stress, boosting energy, digestion, and improving your health. Dr. Bragg wrote a book called Super Power Breathing. One of her exercises states that you lie flat on your back, relax, and slowly inhale through your nose. Place your hands on the lower part of your ribs and feel them expand. When your lungs are filled, purse your lips and slowly blow out the air. Do this exercise 15 times in the morning and again in the evenings to feel revitalised.

Other live longer, look younger tips include the following:

-Massage for health, energy, and relaxation.
-Get deep sleep to recharge.
-Exercise is vital for a healthy heart.
-Take 3,000 mg of Vitamin C daily.
-Every morning tell yourself that you will live a simple, serene, and sincere life.

Many people around the world enjoy the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar Health Tonic. Raw organic cider vinegar helps for many conditions including arthritis and premature ageing. Most take their tonic 3 times per day. Stir 1 to 2 teaspoons of raw, organic cider vinegar and raw honey in a glass of distilled water. If you do this, you will certainly enjoy a healthier life while staying younger longer.
