"Healthy Body ~ healthy Mind We have all heard these "old sayings" but few have understood the profound wisdom in them. Maybe we would be better to say instead "Healthy Mind ~ healthy Body" since mind is always the starting point, but the old wisdom of putting them side by side seems to have been forgotten in modern healthcare. This forgetting has cost us very dearly indeed, not just in terms of enormous amounts of money, but much more seriously, in terms of the enormous amounts of pain and suffering we have generated and continue to generate for ourselves."
- Philip Christie, Something to Chew On: A Mouth Map to Health (Get the book.)

"Essential fatty acids are also vital for healthy brain construction and function. Glucose and fructose, two sugars found in fruit, are the brain's preferred source of fuel. I discuss all these nutrients later in the book. Another important role nutrition plays in brain function involves our blood cells. Our blood cells serve several purposes, including distributing nutrients throughout the body and aiding digestion. Although many parts of the body require blood to function properly, blood is drawn to the part of the body where it is needed most."

"Since the average North American is plagued by stress of varying types, the stress-reducing premise of the Thrive Diet is the ideal solution for staying healthy in our modern-day world. This diet was no longer just for high-level athletes—it was suitable for all people, no matter their activity level: By helping reduce nutritional stress, and thereby overall stress, the Thrive Diet is beneficial for everyone. In fact, the Thrive Diet will potentially eliminate up to 40 percent of the total stress on the average North American's body."

"Those who follow the diet will simply build and maintain healthy levels of enzymes with no additional effort. Consuming a daily dose of raw foods, reducing uncomplementary stress through proper nutrition, and avoiding enzyme-depleting foods such as starchy and deep-fried products are all important principles of the diet. inflammation reduction Food cooked at a high temperature can also cause inflammation in the body."

"Don't forget to include some healthy fat for energy to help you through the morning. Conversely, be sure to avoid excess sugar for breakfast. It will start you out with an energy spike, but you more than likely will come crashing down mid-morning. Making a simple smoothie using yogurt, kefir, or coconut milk as a base is an easy and delicious way to start the day! Schedule meals as an appointment on your calendar Make meals a priority in your life and in your day. Don't just leave it as an afterthought, as it may never get done."

"Proteins are also required for healthy muscles, skin, organs, the nervous system, and proper enzyme function. In addition, the immune system uses specialized proteins called antibodies to fight infections. Optimal health is not possible without adequate amounts of quality sources of protein. Our experience has clearly shown that a poor intake of protein will lead to a cascade of medical problems including an inadequately functioning immune system and hormonal imbalances. What are sources of protein? Protein is found in both animal and plant products."

"It is important to include healthy unrefined salt in your diet and to avoid refined table salt. Suggestion #1: Avoid commercially canned foods that often contain unnecessary and unnatural salt and flavorings. Replacement: Buy fresh or frozen foods and season them yourself with unrefined salts such as those listed above in Table 19 on page 92. Suggestion #2: Avoid common table salt in your home and at restaurants. Replacement: Always have unrefined salt on hand at home for seasoning and cooking. Try carrying a small package of unrefined salt with you when going to a restaurant."

"This occurs because the refining process of sugar (similar to the refining process for all foods) strips the healthy items—vitamins, minerals, and enzymes—from the plant product. In order to properly digest excess sugar, the body will be required to use its own store of nutrients, particularly many B vitamins. In addition, refined forms of sugar provide the body with the rush of the sugary taste and the quick elevation of blood sugar levels without the balancing effect of the healthful nutrients."

"But don't use them as a substitute for a healthy diet. They are indeed supplements to—not substitutes for—a healthy diet.

"Organic farmers add more nutrients to the soil because they know that healthy plants can better fend off pests and that those nutrients end up in the foods. Bob Smith, from Doctor's Data, has released a study which analyzed organic versus commercially grown apples, pears, potatoes, wheat and wheat berries. He found that mineral levels in organically grown foods were twice as high on average as commercially grown foods.3 8. Eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible. The available research is overwhelming about the positive benefits of eating fruits and vegetables."

"While electronics and entertainment media certainly seem to make life more interesting, they could also be red flags telling us how far we've strayed from our power to live rich, healthy, and meaningful lives. Additionally, when the focus of our lives becomes how to avoid disease rather than how to live in a healthy way, how to stay out of war rather than how to cooperate in peace, and how to create new weapons rather than how to live in a world where armed conflict has become obsolete, clearly the path we're on has become one of survival."

"Staying healthy through the spring season means keeping your Wood element—your liver and gall bladder—in the best possible shape, with new attention to your nutrition, exercise, self-awareness and self-expression. Spring is the season of beginning, creation. This is a special time to be open to the new, and the season to clear out the past which is ready to leave. Nutritionally, it is a good time to fast, or to do a liquid cleanse, creating a clearer harmony between your inner and outer lives."
- Elson M. Haas, Staying healthy With the Seasons (Get the book.)

"When stress comes our way, we go to pieces, because we no longer have a healthy endocrine system to cope with it. Day to day efficiency lags, we're always tired, never seem to get anything done. We've got the Sugar Blues." SUGAR BLUES William Dufty (in milk); date sugar; maple syrup; and honey, made from flower pollens by bees. I believe these sugars from whole foods, and those more simply extracted so they still contain a large amount of the initial food, do not overstimulate the pancreas or stress the hormonal system quite as much as refined sugars."

- Elson M. Haas, Staying healthy With the Seasons (Get the book.)

"It is important to staying healthy as it facilitates a greater communication between our inner and outer worlds, and allows a deep state of rest and rejuvenation. Physiologically, meditation lowers the respiratory rate, increases the frequency of alpha brain waves, and facilitates muscular relaxation. The effects of Transcendental Meditation (TM) in particular have been studied extensively."

- Elson M. Haas, Staying healthy With the Seasons (Get the book.)

"Choline, essential fatty acids, glutathione, glycine, phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, quercitin, vitamin C and zinc are all required to maintain healthy slgA levels. Detoxification programs and repair of intestinal mucosa help normalize slgA. Saccharomyces boulardii, a nontoxic yeast often found in probiotic supplements, has been shown to raise slgA levels. A recent study showed that visualization and relaxation techniques significantly increase slgA levels."

"Finally, bacterial balance is essential for healthy metabolism. Many super-thin people have been able to gain weight when their bacteria were rebalanced, although the mechanism is not yet understood. L. bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus are two other friendly inhabitants of our digestive tracts. Transient residents of the digestive tract, these flora are not native to it. They "vacation" in us for up to 12 days, which gives them time to have a beneficial effect on the intestinal ecology. Their most obvious function is enhancing the production of bifidobacteria."

"The production, processing, and delivery of food have tremendous impact on our environment—greater than any other industry. The energy used in producing and distributing food accounts for roughly 60 percent of the total energy North Americans produce. Of that 60 percent, more than 85 percent is generated from the burning of fossil fuels—coal, oil, and natural gas. The combustion of fossil fuel to create energy in turn creates greenhouse gases. It is now commonly accepted among climatologists and other experts that greenhouse gases contribute to global warming."

"You may stay healthy by becoming aware of the complex effects of foods, watching and learning how they act in your body. The quantity and ratio of foods in your diet are impor- "Let go of the old world and the new one will grow around you like a new skin." DAS ENERGI Paul Williams tant. For instance, a diet of primarily bread and cheese, both body congestors, will not keep you or your intestines free-flowing. Meats are concentrated energy, not particularly easy to assimilate, and they create more density and body heat than fruits and vegetables."
- Elson M. Haas, Staying healthy With the Seasons (Get the book.)

"Internal and external coherence are interrelated and mutually reinforcing. A healthy mind promotes health in the body, and a healthy body sustains mental health. There is evidence that people who are psychologically adjusted within their family, community, and natural environment are less prone to disease, and those who enjoy good health are less likely to engage in antisocial and antiecological behavior. Creating, or contributing to, coherence in and around us is not an abstract ideal but a norm for optimal functioning. Nature is coherent, and so is the universe."
- Ervin Laszlo, Quantum Shift in the Global Brain: How the New Scientific Reality Can Change Us and Our World (Get the book.)

"When people ask me what this book is about, I tell them that it explains: how the human body was designed to operate, what its requirements for healthy operation are, why it develops disease symptoms, how the disease process can be reversed, and how one can enjoy health and vitality well into old age. This book was written to give the understanding people require to be able to monitor and maintain their own health programs. It is a human body owner's manual for self-empowerment. STARTING TO QUESTION Food is the basis of most of our disease problems."

"Chapter Twelve: Two healthy Trends in Your Future There are two recent trends that should support attempts to bring sanity and safety to the personal care industry. The first is the growth of "green chemistry," a philosophy that encourage the development of chemicals and industrial processes designed to have no toxic effects. The second and even more important trend is the growing availability and mainstream acceptance of organic ingredients and products."

"And I needed a strong, healthy voice to proclaim that message. Determined to get my voice back, I put together a recovery plan to regenerate my damaged vocal nerve as soon I left the hospital. With nutrition as the cornerstone of that plan, I started a daily diet of foods that are high in complete proteins and essential fatty acids—both of which are crucial nutrients needed by the body to repair nerve damage. In addition to my new diet, I also took a good look at the stress in my life and how I could reduce it."

"Our payoff is a healthy snack; their payoff is countless hectares of orchards tended all over the galaxy Next time you eat a raspberry, pay attention. The berries look and taste so delicious that you probably don't even notice that those seeds are passing through your digestive system intact, ready to return to the earth and blossom anew. As my guava-groping friend knows, fruits are arousing. Many are named for their ribald aspects: sodom apples, tit of Venus peaches, women's breast apples and maiden's flesh pears."

"They planted over a million pomegranate trees to capitalize on the fruit's healthy image. The Resnick's pomegranates are being sold with the promise that they "might even save a life. Yours!" Their slogan is: "Cheat death." Some of the other claims surrounding pomegranates are as faith-based as Mohammad telling his followers to eat pomegranates because "it purges the system of envy." Pomegranates do contain myriad beneficial minutiae: tannins, antioxidant polyphenols, ellagic acid and punicalagin."

"You should also exercise healthy skepticism when it comes to claims on the label that a product is "hypoallergenic," "allergy tested," or "safe for sensitive skin." Since product manufacturers are not required to validate such claims with the FDA, they could be entirely meaningless. A few other terms to be skeptical of when you see them on labels: • Natural ingredients. The word "natural" on a label can mean very little. Arsenic is natural, for instance, but that doesn't mean it's safe to put in toothpaste."

"Exercise some healthy skepticism and study the label carefully. Here is a good reason why that is important. In a study initiated by consumer activist David Steinman and the Organic Consumers' Association and released in March 2008, a laboratory analysis of ninety-nine personal care products branded as natural and organic found that forty-five contained detectable levels of the carcinogen 1,4-dioxane."

"The central paradox is that fruits seem so pure and healthy, but their dissemination entails so many compromises that by the time we're eating them they've lost the attributes that made them special in the first place. I can think of no sadder example of our food paradigm than two posters taped to the window of a California IHOE One is a colorful photo of pancakes heaped with bananas, strawberries, nuts, syrups and whipped cream with the caption, "Welcome to Paradise."

"It only knows how to strive to be healthy; but it needs our cooperation. Dr. Bruce Lipton, cell biologist, has broken through the traditional paradigm regarding genetics. He explains that our beliefs and perceptions govern our biology at the cellular level. By changing our beliefs and perceptions, we can actually change our gene structure and what manifests in our lives.2 When we take personal responsibility for our health, educate ourselves to understand what is helpful and what is harmful to the body, and change our lifestyle practices and beliefs, we begin to help the body heal."
- Ron Garner, Conscious Health: A Complete Guide to Wellness Through Natural Means (Get the book.)

"When distortions are corrected, the body-field then directs the physical body back toward homeostasis, so that it can once again work to keep itself healthy. That existence of quantum processes and energy fields in the human body is a relatively recent scientific discovery. This area of modern research is still in its infancy, but in actuality the evidence for the energetic reality of the body goes back decades, and even to antiquity if you include spiritual and metaphysical wisdom instead of only laboratory results."

"Cells that could become cancerous constantly circulate in the body, but in healthy persons they are routinely eliminated by the immune system. The "mutant" cancerous cells can only take root when some factor, either genetic or environmental, has suppressed the functioning of the immune system. There is no single best measurement of the health of the immune system. Obviously, the absence of infections, cancer, allergies, and autoimmune disorders speaks well for the integration of the immune system. Scores of measurements have been developed to test different facets of the immune response."
