The Healing Aspects of Water

 Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong – Lao-Tzu
During my time as health and education director at Creative Health Institute I have seen the healing miracles which take place when our guests quench their thirst and fill their bodies in H20.

Did You Know:

  • Studies show that just drinking 8 cups (64oz) of water daily can decrease the risk of colon cancer by 45%, bladder cancer by 50% and it can potentially even reduce the risk of breast cancer.
  • Headaches even migraines are signs that water is needed. Continued dehydration of the brain causes inflammation and can even bring on a coma and death. Simply drinking the proper ratios of water to your body weight you can eliminate most all headaches and reduce migraine pain.
  • Studies show that water is important in the management of cholesterol. High cholesterol levels have been linked to mild to severe dehydration. When the test subjects balanced their water to weight ratios they experienced drops significant drops in their cholesterol.
  • Studies show that dehydration causes the vascular system constrict, causing hypertension. Rehydrating the body by drinking half of the body weight in ounces has produced remarkable results in lowering hypertension without drugs.
  • All joint pain and back pain can be reduced by keeping your weight and water intake ratios in balance.
  • Today, more than 17 million children suffer from asthma. Studies show that many of the children would not suffer from the effects of the asthma if they were to just drink half of their body weight in ounces of water every day.
  • Studies have shown dehydration is a known factor in dementia and drinking the proper ratio of one to body weight helps manage the symptoms of dementia. Proper hydration may also help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Lou Gehrig’s disease.
  • Studies have shown that oxidation caused by free radicals, pollutants, chemicals, pesticides, radiation and toxic metals enter the brain with its blood supply.
  • The Advanced Learning and Development Institute found that one of the best sources of antioxidants for their participants has been alkaline drinking water. Adding alkaline water to their treatment protocol program has significantly helped many of their patients in cognitive function, showing as much as a 35 percent improvement.
  • When you feel the onset of heartburn, it is most likely your body signaling that you have a shortage of water in the upper part of your gastrointestinal tract. Drink 3 cups of water and experience the magical disappearance of the pain.
  • Colitis is one of the fastest growing areas of diseases being treated by allopathic medicine. The pain associated with colitis comes from the large intestine squeezing the water out of the excrement. When we are properly hydrated we can avoid the pain of colitis and the onset of other diseases such as ulcerated colitis, internal hemorrhoids, external hemorrhoids, appendicitis, inflammatory bowel disease diverticulitis, polyps, constipation, and possibly colon cancer.
  • Studies show if you are only 1% dehydrated, you will likely have a 5% decrease in cognitive function. If your brain drops 2% in body water, you may suffer from fuzzy short-term memory, experience problems with focusing, and have trouble with math computations, all you need to overcome these problems is to balance your water to bodily weight ratio.

Be blessed and drink at least 1/2 yur body weight in ounces of pure clean water everyday.

Creative Health Institutes Take On Proper Seed Storage

 

As raw living foodest practicing, Dr. Ann Wigmore’s Living Food Lifestyle, we depended on sprouted seeds, to provide us with a host of powerful live enzymes, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. We have found the best way to insure we have the best seeds is to grow and store our own, for future use. This is not always possible and so we still get the majority of our seeds from vendors.

If you are going to purchase seeds make sure the seeds have been carefully dried under proper conditions, before you use them, or store them for later use. Proper storing of your seeds will give them the best chance of germinating and giving you the highest quality sprouts and micro-greens. The great thing is storing seeds is easy to accomplish.

At Creative Health Institute we do not have the facilities to freeze or refrigerate our seeds, but luckily we use them so quickly we do not have the need to freeze or refrigerate them.

Our basic storage rule is to keep our seeds in a cool, dry, dark place where the temperature is between 55 and 70 degrees and the humidity is less then 70%. The lower the humidity, the better.

Most of you will be able to freeze or refrigerate your seeds. Freezing them will at least quadruple the life of your seeds and refrigerating them doubles their life.

With more than 39 years of experience we have a pretty good understanding of different seeds shelf lives.  I have designed the following chart that should provide you with a conservative estimate of the life of seeds that have been properly dried. Since we do not have the room for refrigerators and freezer your storage time could be from 2 to 4 times longer. If you have more questions, feel free to call Bobby as 866.426.1213.

Many of the men and women who come to CHI come here to experience the lifestyle and the diet, but theres more; Everyday guests attend classes and also can have private counseling sessions with the instructors.  

 Our raw live foods are amazing and by the time our guests leave the are prepared to change their lifestyles and turnback the hands of time. Even many of the guests with Type 2 Diabetes find there blood sugar normalizing during their 10 day detox with most being able to go home and cure themselves of their Type 2 Diabetes, in as little as 28 days.

Wishing all of our readers a wonderous day!

Fenugreek Chocolate Strawberry Heart

This fast and delicious desert is healthy and fun to make. My assistant Patty Maher, came up with this great recipe last Valentines Day, and it was a smashing hit with everyone here at Creative Health Institute (CHI). I think it would make a fun party dish for New Years Eve. 

Fenugreek Chocolate Strawberry Heart

(It’s soooo simple  and pretty; you’ll want to kiss yourself!)

Although this tasty heart was inspired by St. Valentine’s Day, I hope you’ll feel free to enjoy it anytime you want to bring a little more love to your family or friends. xoxox ~ Patty

INGREDIENTS

2 cartons of organic strawberries

2 organic apples (granny smith might be especially nice but I didn’t have them)

2 cups raw organic cacao powder OR carob

1  1/2 cups sprouted fenugreek (We have been keeping sprouted fenugreek on and every day for the past few months, so it happens to have been handy to use.  Lucky for this dessert, the addition of fenugreek gave it a fresh, earthy taste. We’ve been keeping sprouted fenugreek on hand because it has antiviral properties and it’s great for balancing hormones and women’s health. I love it in salad’s too. So sprout some fenugreek. You’ll enjoy it. Otherwise, use whatever sprouts you happen to have handy).

1  cup raw agave (or if you prefer not to use agave, use a cup of date paste and be prepared to dilute with room temperature  purified water).

A bit of room temperature purified water to get it to the consistency you prefer.

DIRECTIONS

Wash and prepare the fruit. Take the stems off  the strawberries and slice the applies into wedges. Place the strawberries in the shape of a heart on a pretty serving plate. Fill in the inside of the heart with apple slices.

Put remaining ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth, adding  purified water until it is at a good consistency for drizzling and dipping. Drizzle chocolate over the fruit. Put remaining chocolate sauce in pretty serving bowls to set next to the large plate. Serve with a pretty bowl of toothpicks.

Enjoy!

Our Raw Chef classes have been especially wonderful! The next Raw Chef Level 1 Certification class is  January. 15th, 2012. Theres still a couple spaces available. For more information, contact us at 866-426-1213 or info@creativehealthinstitute.com.
