Sugary Drinks Are Killers, Whether Your Over, Or Under Weight

In a new study just released, Cambridge University, researchers, have confirmed what most of us Naturopaths and alternative medical doctors have been saying for the last fifty years: Sugary drinks raises a person’s chances of developing type 2 diabetes and many other sicknesses and diseases.

Study after study has shown sugary drinks, especially those with high fructose corn syrup, promote disease and are true killers.

Glass or Plastic? What Is Your Water Bottle Made Of?

Glass or Plastic?

Due to the low cost of manufacturing and shipping, plastic containers are the primary choice of the bottled water industry, which in their thinking keeps the price down for the consumer. The problem with this is that scientists are finding that it not such a good deal for us because the hidden cost may be our health.

Studies have shown that chemicals called phthalates, which are known to disrupt testosterone and other hormones, can leach into bottled water over time. One study found that water that had been stored for 10 weeks in plastic contained phthalates, suggesting that the chemicals could be coming from the plastic bottle or even the cap. Although there are regulatory standards limiting phthalates in tap water, there are no legal limits for phthalates in bottled water — the bottled water industry waged a successful campaign opposing the FDA proposal to set a legal limit for these chemicals!

 Plastic Recycling Codes

The following plastics are considered safest for water and food storage. Check all your plastic containers to make sure these symbols and the numbers 1,2,4 and 5 are on them. If these symbols and number are not present on plastic container or bottle, or you see another symbol and/or number do not drink or eat anything from this container.

Though the following numbers represent the safest plastics, this does not mean we have a complete understanding of all the possible health hazards plastics may present. So, the best practice would be to not drink from plastic bottles or store items in plastic, and never heat water or food items in them. Remember clean glass containers are always the best option.

 Polyethylene terephthalate ethylene (PETE), code 1.

 High-density polyethylene (HDPE), code 2.

 Low-density polyethylene (LDPE), code 4.

 Polypropylene (PP), code 5.

 ALWAYS AVOID ANY PLASTIC WITH THESE CODES

 CODE (3) Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) leach phthalates which cause major problems with hormones and are toxic to them male reproductive system. It can be marked by code 3. If a water bottle, plastic wrap, shampoo container, cooking oil container, blood bag or meat wrapping has this mark or number or is not marked at all find a new brand!

CODE (6) –  Polystyrene is used in Styrofoam products. It leaches styrene (a neurotoxin) when it comes into contact with hot, acidic, or fatty foods. This cup is used being used by many fast food and coffee shops to serve hot drinks in.  What you may have thought was a caffeine buzz, was the neurotoxins being released into you coffee or tea.  This chemical is also found in the most medicine and vitamin bottles, WOW, plastic cutlery, foam packaging and the cartons you may be get your eggs in.  It’s marked with recycling code 6.

CODE (7) – Polycarbonate containers leach bisphenol-A (BPA), an endocrine disruptor associated with a long list of health concerns, including obesity. Baby bottles, “sippy” cups, ketchup bottles, syrups, window cleaners, 5-gallon water cooler bottles, reusable water jugs, and reusable beverage bottles are typically made out of this plastic. Products may be marked with recycling code 7 and/or the letters “PC.” It’s important to note some containers that aren’t made from polycarbonate may also be marked with a code 7 because the category also includes any plastic that doesn’t fit into the 1 to 6 recycling code categories.  

May your life be blessed with health, peace and love.

The History Of The Enema

Its Unique History & Amazing Detox Properties…

Part One: The Coffee Enema

An enema is “a fluid injected into the rectum for the purpose of clearing out the bowel, or of administering drugs or food.”  The word itself comes from the Greek “en-hienai,” meaning to “send or inject into.”  The enema has been called “one of the oldest medical procedures still used today.”  Tribal women in Africa, and elsewhere, routinely use it on their children.  The earliest medical text in existence, the Egyptian Ebers Papyrus, from 1500 B.C., mentions it.  Millennia before, the Pharaoh had a “guardian of the anus,” a special doctor, one of whose purposes was to administer the royal enema.

The Greeks wrote of the fabled cleanliness of the Egyptians, which included the internal cleansing of their systems through emetics and enemas.  They employed these on 3 consecutive days a month said Herodotus (II.77) or at intervals of 3 or 4 days, according to a later historian Diodorus.  The Egyptians explained to their visitors that they did this because they “believed that diseases were engendered by superfluities of the food,” a modern-sounding theory! 

Enemas were known in ancient Sumeria, Babylonia, India, Greece, and China.  American Indians independently invented it, using a syringe made of an animal bladder and a hollow leg bone.  Pre-Columbian South Americans fashioned latex into the first rubber enema bags and tubes.  In fact, there is hardly a region of the world where people did not discover or adapt the enema.  It is more ubiquitous than the wheel.  Enemas are found in world literature from Aristophanes to Shakespeare, Gulliver Travels to Peyton Place.

In pre-revolutionary France, a daily enema after dinner was de rigueur.  It was not only considered indispensable for health but also practiced for good complexion as well.  Louis XIV is said to have taken over 2,000 in his lifetime.  Could this have been the source of the Sun King’s sunny disposition?  For centuries, enemas were a routine home remedy.  In recent times, the routine use of enemas died out.  The main times that doctors employ them nowadays are before and after surgery and childbirth.  Difficult and potentially dangerous barium enemas before colonic X-rays are of course still a favorite among allopathic doctors. 

The coffee bean has an interesting history.  It was imported in Arabia in the early 1500’s by the Sufi religious mystics, who used it to fight drowsiness while praying.  It was especially prized for its medicinal qualities, in both the Near East and Europe.  No one knows when the first daring soul filled an enema bag with a quart of java.  What is known is that the coffee enema appeared at least as early as 1917 and was found in the prestigious Merck Manual until 1972.  In the 1920’s, German scientists found that a caffeine solution could open the bile ducts and stimulate the production of bile in the liver of experimental animals. 

Dr. Max Gerson used this clinically as part of a general detoxification regimen, first for tuberculosis, then cancer.  Caffeine, he postulated, will travel up the hemorrhoidal to the portal vein and then to the liver.  Gerson noted some remarkable effects of this procedure.  For instance, patients did not need their usually prescribed painkillers once on the enemas.  Many people have noted the paradoxical calming effect of coffee enemas.  And while coffee enemas can relieve constipation, Gerson cautioned:  “Patients have to know that the coffee enemas are not given for the function of the intestines but for the stimulation of the liver.” 

Coffee enemas were an established part of medical practice when Dr. Max Gerson introduced them into cancer therapy in the 1930s.  Basing himself on German laboratory work, Gerson believed that caffeine could stimulate the liver and gall bladder to discharge bile.  He felt this process could contribute to the health of the cancer patient. 

Although the coffee enema has been heaped with scorn, there has been some independent scientific work that gives credence to the value of the coffee enema.  In 1981, for example, Dr. Lee Wattenberg and his colleagues were soon able to show that substances found in coffee, kahweol and cafestol palimate, promote the activity of a key enzyme system, glutathione S-transferase, above its normal activity.  This system detoxifies a vast array of electrophiles from the bloodstream and, according to Gar Hildenbrand of the Gerson Institute, “must be regarded as an important mechanism for carcinogen detoxification.”  This enzyme group is responsible for neutralizing free radicals, harmful chemicals now commonly implicated in the initiation of cancer.  In mice, for example, these systems are enhanced 600% in the liver and 700% in the bowel when coffee beans are added to the mice’s diet. 

Dr. Peter Lechner, who is investigating the Gerson method at the Ladneskrankenhaus of Graz, Austria, has reported that “coffee enemas have a definite effect on the colon which can be observed with an endoscope.”  F.W. Cope (1977) has postulated the existence of a “tissue damage syndrome.”  When cells are challenged by a poison, oxygen deprivation, malnutrition or a physical trauma they lose potassium, take on sodium and chloride, and swell up with excess water.  Another scientist (Ling) has suggested that water in a normal cell is contained in a crystalline structure.  Being alive requires not just the right chemicals, but also the right chemical structure.  Cells normally have a preference for potassium over sodium, but when a cell is damaged it begins to prefer sodium.  This craving results in a damaged ability of cells to repair themselves and to utilize energy.  Further, damaged cells produce toxins; around tumors there are zones of “wounded” but still non-malignant tissue, swollen with salt and water. 

Gerson believed it axiomatic that cancer could not exist in normal metabolism.  He pointed to the fact that scientists often had to damage an animal’s thyroid and adrenals just to get a transplanted tumor to “take.”  He directed his efforts toward creating normal metabolism in the tissue surrounding a tumor. 

It is the liver and small bowel that neutralize the most common tissue toxins: polyamines, ammonia, toxic-bound nitrogen and electrophiles.  These detoxification systems are enhanced by the coffee enema.  Physiological chemistry and physics has stated “caffeine enemas cause dilation of bile ducts, which facilitates excretion of toxic cancer breakdown products by the liver and dialysis of toxic products across the colonic wall.” 

In addition, theophylline and theobromine, two other chemicals in coffee, dilate blood vessels and counter inflammation of the gut; the palimates enhance the enzyme system responsible for the removal of toxic free radicals from the serum; and the fluid of the enema then stimulates the visceral nervous system to promote peristalsis and the transit of diluted toxic bile from the duodenum and out of the rectum. 

Since the enema is generally held for 15 minutes, and all the blood passes through the liver, the palimates enhance the enzyme system responsible for the removal of toxic free radicals from the serum; and the fluid of the enema then stimulates the visceral nervous system to promote peristalsis and the transit of diluted toxic bile from the duodenum and out of the rectum.  Furthermore, since all the blood passes through the liver every three minutes, “these enemas represent a form of dialysis of the blood across the gut wall.”  The research by Sherry Rodgers, MD author of Detox or Die, suggests that there is no stimulatory effect of the adrenals from a coffee enema.  The personal experience of Gabriel Cousens, MD supports her findings.

Our next article will cover the benefits of wheatgrass and intestonal health. Here at Creative Health Institute we do not teach how to prepare coffee enema’s nor do we discus the benefits of coffee enema’s, though we do acknowledged the benefits derived from this method of bowel and body detoxification. Our focus at CHI is teaching about water based enema’s which contain electrolites and probiotics. This cleansing system incorporates  wheatgrass implants as part of the full body cleanse.

Whishing everyone their healthiest day ever!

Help For Those Who Suffer From Fibromyalgia

At Creative Health Institute we are blessed to eat only organic, raw and living foods. Dr. Ann Wigmore taught us nothing is more powerful than a living food diet, especially when it comes to addressing and overcoming our health challenges. 

Unfortunately many people do not understand the benefits of the lifestyle Dr. Ann Wigmore taught us, thus they unnecessarily suffer from many sicknesses and diseases, which they could easily avoid by just eating a living food diet.

We recently had a guest who was suffering from Fibromyalgia and not adhering to a living food diet, therefore she found it necessary to resort to these herbs and supplements which she felt help her overcome her health challenge. If you are not adhering to a living food diet, and suffering form Fibromyalgia you may also benefit from this regiment of herbs and supplements.

Love and blessings,

Bobby

Pesticide Residue Is Found In 98% Of The USA’s Conventionally Grown Apples

The Dirty Dozen & The Clean Fifteen Fruits & Vegetables For 2011

“In setting the tolerance amount, the EPA must make a safety finding that the pesticide can be used with reasonable certainty of no harm.’ The EPA ensures that the tolerance selected will be safe,” according the EPA’s website. The President’s Cancer Panel recently recommended that consumers eat produce without pesticides to reduce their risk of getting cancer and other diseases. You can reduce your exposure to pesticides by up to 100%, by buying the organic version of the Dirty Dozen,”.

A Half Dozen Natural Antibiotics Some Of Us At Creative Health Institute Have Found To Be Helpful

It has been my experience that prescription antibiotics kill good bacteria; contribute to yeast over growth and weaken my immune system.  Many of us at Creative Health Institute find that natural antibiotics are a better choice, as they do not kill good bacteria, nor do they have the inherent side effects associated with prescription antibiotics. I have found natural antibiotics when combined with a raw living food diet provide my best protection from infections and when necessary  the addition of more natural antibiotics can alleviate swelling and pain and eliminate the bad bacteria which usually accompany any infection.

There are hundreds of powerful  natural antibiotics and I would love to provide them all in this article, but due to my time constraints I am going to give you a half dozen of my favorites in this article. I promise to write more about natural antibiotics over the next few months.

Please feel free to send me information and your personal testimonials on your favorites and I will post them on the Creative Health Institute blog. You can also add your favorite natural antibiotic and testimonials in the comments section.  Please consult your health care provider before trying any natural antibiotic.

Wishing you the greatest health and long life.

Natural Antibiotics

Grape Seed Extract:  A few drops of grapefruit seed extract, (GSE), in a glass of water is all that is needed to help stop a sore throat or put almost any infection on notice. I have personally used just a few drops directly on a case of athletes foot and experienced immediate relief and saw the fungus completely disappear after only two applications. I have many friends who swear by it when it comes to helping them control their Candida.

Dr. Louis Parish MD, an investigator for the US Department of Health and the FDA, believes that GSE, “Gives more symptomatic relief than any other treatment. Conventional antibiotics only kill bacteria. The grapefruit seed extract has been shown to inactivate viruses, yeasts, fungi, parasites and worms as well as bacteria.”

“Studies from a list of prestigious institutes have demonstrated grapefruit seed extract to be effective against over twenty disease-causing bacteria, more than thirty fungi, and a host of single cell parasites”.
Allan Sachs DC

Garlic:  Raw garlic held under the tongue, placed on the infected area or taken as a juice is an effective antibiotic. I know of a friend who swears that garlic is the best natural antibiotic for a tooth ache or infected gums. Her remedy is as follows:

  • Peel a raw piece of garlic
  • Place the garlic on the infected tooth or gum area and bite down on it for 15 minutes, then spit it out.
  • Peel a second piece of garlic and chew it but do not swallow and letting the pieces and juices stay on the infected area for about 15 minutes.
  • Do this 3 times a day every day  until the infection is gone. Usually within 72 hours.

Oil of Oregano:  The antiviral, anti-fungal and antibacterial trifecta effect of this powerful natural antibiotic makes it one of my favorite all around natural antibiotics. Simply rub it on the infected area and you should see and feel amazing results within 72 hours.

Echinacea – Golden Seal: This combination of natural antibiotics is one of nature’s most powerful immune system boosters and I have found it to be one an excellent way to ward off colds and flu.

Colloidal Silver: This is a very powerful broad-spectrum natural antibiotic. Unfortunately there are many unscrupulous vendors who do not care about the quality of the product they sell to you.  Please do your research before purchasing or using any type of Colloidal Silver.

Colloidal silver fights infection, subdues inflammation, and promotes healing. It is a clear golden liquid composed of 99.9 percent pure silver particles approximately 0.001 to 0.01 micron (1/1 to 1/100,000 millimeter) in diameter that are suspended in pure water. It can be taken by mouth, administered intravenously, or applied topically. Colloidal silver is available in health food stores. “True colloids will typically contain more than 50% particles (often 50 – 80%), while the balance (20% to 49%) will be silver ions. When referring to colloidal silver, the word colloid means silver particles “.   This is an excellent website, which contains good research and information’ http://www.silver-colloids.com

“Prior to 1938, before antibiotics, colloidal silver was used by doctors as their main substance to fight bacteria in a more natural way than through the antibiotics they use today. Antibiotics can harm our kidneys and liver functions. Colloidal silver promotes healing”.

Wishing you vibrant health and happiness, Bobby Robert Morgan Director Creative Health Institute Union City, MI

Creative Health Institutes Sample Raw Food Diet Meal Plan

Basic meal plan: 

Breakfast – Energy soup – use standard recipe & Sauerkraut or you can interchange the energy soup with a fruit smoothie or green smoothie, containing four or five cups fresh fruit and green vegetables always put in the sprouts, along with two to three cups water or rejuvelac. Make enough energy soup or green smoothie so you can have them with meals and snack throughout the day.  Also be sure to make kelp/dulse and rejuvelac a part of your meals.

Snack – Raw nuts, fresh fruit such as oranges, apples, grapes, peaches, plumbs or pears.

Lunch – Large salad based on green leafy veggies, including celery, tomatoes, any color bell pepper, and avocados, sprinkled with sprouted sunflower seeds and any of the raw nuts you would like.

Desert – Two cups berries, or another fruit of choice

Beverages – As much water as you’d like, freshly squeezed fruit juices, freshly made vegetable juices and rejuvelac.

This diet is based in green leafy vegetables, fruit, sprouts, nuts seeds and other vegetables. You will get your protein from nuts and seeds.  Anytime you can blend the foods, do so as this will make them easier to assimilate.  Also try to sprout as much of your food as possible and as a minimum always soak your nuts, seeds and grains.

Make sure you have a good variety of produce so that you will have a wide range of vitamins, phytonutrients, minerals and carbohydrates. Avocados, olive-hemp oils, nuts, and seeds will provide you with the necessary fats.

I wish you the best health ever!

The easiest and most popular appliance is a high speed blender.  This is key to a raw living foodist – what a stove is to a a professional chef.  You’ll make smoothies, shakes and soups within minutes.  And you’ll use it many times a day.  The two brands most used are Vitamix and Blendtec.  They’re equally good.  There is also a new blender that is sold by Montel Willam’s company and shows great promise. The best raw living food juicer depends on what you expect to be juicing most.  Carrots are easiest in a centrifuge juicer, whereas wheatgrass and green leafy vegetables go best in a twin gear or single auger juicer.  If you have a juice bar around the corner and as long as you can get the volume of juice you need to support your lifestyle, you may choose to buy your juice already made instead of investing in a good juicer, the problem is that you will be most likely missing out on enzymes and other nutrients. If you buy a centrifuge juicer, make sure you buy one with a wide mouth so you can juice whole apples and carrots without any pre-cutting.  There are many inexpensive centrifuge juicers, so find one that suits your needs and budget.  To date, the most frequently used twin gear juicer is the Greenstar Juicer. A dehydrator is a fun tool, and difficult to live without for a raw living foodest!  For intermediate to advanced raw living foodests, a dehydrator is essential for making breads, cookies and  snacks.  The Excalibur dehydrator is the most popular and you should get a model large enough to make enough dehydrated recipes to last you through out the week or up to a month. Having access to your own spring – pure, raw, living water – would be ideal, unfortunately that is not really feasible for most of us!  Alternatively, a water purifier is something you might consider.  It’s more economical and ecological than buying bottled water, and when you purify your own water you know you are getting the best quality water, for you and your family.  You can buy a good a tap filter, or under-counter model, and don’t forget the bathtub and shower chlorine-filter, since your skin is your largest organ and absorbs the water that you bath in.  You may even want to spend some extra money adding an ionizer. A food processor is fun and necessary if you are going to eat 80%+ raw living food and make gourmet foods.  For small jobs, here at Creative Health Institute we find it’s just as easy to use a knife or the much cheaper and smaller mandolin or spiral slicer.  When you have a lot of slicing, dicing and mixing to do, nothing beats a food processor.  So if you have space and a few extra dollars, we recommend buying one, but it’s not as important as a good blender in a raw living food kitchen. A coffee grinder is great for finely grinding nuts, seeds and cacao beans in smaller quantities.  A grinder is small and relatively inexpensive.  It’s not an absolute must in a raw living food kitchen, but is so inexpensive that not having one would just be a personal preference choice. I love the hand blender!  To me, it’s a simple and cheap version of a table model, high speed blender.  If you have a Cuisinart hand blender you can take it on trips and with 700 Watts, you can use it where you’d use the high speed blenders, although your mixtures won’t be as smooth and the cell walls of the food you blending won’t be broken down as efficiently as with a high speed table model.  However, it  really does the job for traveling, for making green smoothies, energy soups, quick pestos and small amounts of sauce, etc., making it easy for you to never miss out on the yummy raw living food dishes you will come to love. Other Great ToolsOnce you have the basics, other fun  and very useful tools to consider are:

  • Ceramic Knifes
  • Mandoline
  • Cutting Board
  • Spiralizer
  • Nut Milk Bag
  • Hand Held Water Purifying Bottle – For those live springs and rivers
  • Fun and BeautifulChina, Silverware, Fun Table Decorations Candles, Napkins, etc. (Remember We Eat With Our Eyes First)

Making Right Choices, Means Asking The Right QuestionsHow to decide what appliances to buy…  Answer the following questions for yourself:

  • What kind of recipes would you like to make?
  • Do I love gourmet or more simple juices, smoothies, seed & nut milks, crackers, pastas?
  • Do I prefer quick and easy recipes such as smoothies, soups and juices or do I like to make more complicated recipes with lots of different ingredients?

Guideline you may want to use:

  • Simple healthy raw living food recipes:  high speed blender, juicer, knifes, hand blender, water purifier.
  • Complex &Gourmet:  dehydrator, mandoline, spiralizer, sprouting system.

How much time do you have for raw living food preparation?

  • Little time:   blender, centrifuge juicer, apple slicer, maybe dehydrator, cleaver, coffee grinder, hand blender, water purifier.
  • More time: mandolin, spiralizer, sprouter, nut milk bag, twin gear juicer, dehydrator, food processor.

How much space do you have in your kitchen?

  • Small kitchen:  centrifuge juicer, (hand)blender, nut bag, high speed hand blender.
  • Large kitchen:  twin gear juicer, dehydrator, water purifier, distiller, sprouter, table top blender.

Consider your budget:  How much do you want to spend on your new kitchen equipment?  If you are on a tight budget, choose only what you need most.  To save money, you might consider asking for (money for) kitchen tools for Christmas or your birthday.   Low budget:  Fill this in with what you think you can afford.

The easiest and most popular appliance is a high speed blender.  This is key to a raw living foodist – what a stove is to a a professional chef.  You’ll make smoothies, shakes and soups within minutes.  And you’ll use it many times a day.  The two brands most used are Vitamix and Blendtec.  They’re equally good.  There is also a new blender that is sold by Montel Willam’s company and shows great promise. The best raw living food juicer depends on what you expect to be juicing most.  Carrots are easiest in a centrifuge juicer, whereas wheatgrass and green leafy vegetables go best in a twin gear or single auger juicer.  If you have a juice bar around the corner and as long as you can get the volume of juice you need to support your lifestyle, you may choose to buy your juice already made instead of investing in a good juicer, the problem is that you will be most likely missing out on enzymes and other nutrients. If you buy a centrifuge juicer, make sure you buy one with a wide mouth so you can juice whole apples and carrots without any pre-cutting.  There are many inexpensive centrifuge juicers, so find one that suits your needs and budget.  To date, the most frequently used twin gear juicer is the Greenstar Juicer. A dehydrator is a fun tool, and difficult to live without for a raw living foodest!  For intermediate to advanced raw living foodests, a dehydrator is essential for making breads, cookies and  snacks.  The Excalibur dehydrator is the most popular and you should get a model large enough to make enough dehydrated recipes to last you through out the week or up to a month. Having access to your own spring – pure, raw, living water – would be ideal, unfortunately that is not really feasible for most of us!  Alternatively, a water purifier is something you might consider.  It’s more economical and ecological than buying bottled water, and when you purify your own water you know you are getting the best quality water, for you and your family.  You can buy a good a tap filter, or under-counter model, and don’t forget the bathtub and shower chlorine-filter, since your skin is your largest organ and absorbs the water that you bath in.  You may even want to spend some extra money adding an ionizer. A food processor is fun and necessary if you are going to eat 80%+ raw living food and make gourmet foods.  For small jobs, here at Creative Health Institute we find it’s just as easy to use a knife or the much cheaper and smaller mandolin or spiral slicer.  When you have a lot of slicing, dicing and mixing to do, nothing beats a food processor.  So if you have space and a few extra dollars, we recommend buying one, but it’s not as important as a good blender in a raw living food kitchen. A coffee grinder is great for finely grinding nuts, seeds and cacao beans in smaller quantities.  A grinder is small and relatively inexpensive.  It’s not an absolute must in a raw living food kitchen, but is so inexpensive that not having one would just be a personal preference choice. I love the hand blender!  To me, it’s a simple and cheap version of a table model, high speed blender.  If you have a Cuisinart hand blender you can take it on trips and with 700 Watts, you can use it where you’d use the high speed blenders, although your mixtures won’t be as smooth and the cell walls of the food you blending won’t be broken down as efficiently as with a high speed table model.  However, it  really does the job for traveling, for making green smoothies, energy soups, quick pestos and small amounts of sauce, etc., making it easy for you to never miss out on the yummy raw living food dishes you will come to love. Other Great ToolsOnce you have the basics, other fun  and very useful tools to consider are:

  • Ceramic Knifes
  • Mandoline
  • Cutting Board
  • Spiralizer
  • Nut Milk Bag
  • Hand Held Water Purifying Bottle – For those live springs and rivers
  • Fun and BeautifulChina, Silverware, Fun Table Decorations Candles, Napkins, etc. (Remember We Eat With Our Eyes First)

Making Right Choices, Means Asking The Right QuestionsHow to decide what appliances to buy…  Answer the following questions for yourself:

  • What kind of recipes would you like to make?
  • Do I love gourmet or more simple juices, smoothies, seed & nut milks, crackers, pastas?
  • Do I prefer quick and easy recipes such as smoothies, soups and juices or do I like to make more complicated recipes with lots of different ingredients?

Guideline you may want to use:

  • Simple healthy raw living food recipes:  high speed blender, juicer, knifes, hand blender, water purifier.
  • Complex &Gourmet:  dehydrator, mandoline, spiralizer, sprouting system.

How much time do you have for raw living food preparation?

  • Little time:   blender, centrifuge juicer, apple slicer, maybe dehydrator, cleaver, coffee grinder, hand blender, water purifier.
  • More time: mandolin, spiralizer, sprouter, nut milk bag, twin gear juicer, dehydrator, food processor.

How much space do you have in your kitchen?

  • Small kitchen:  centrifuge juicer, (hand)blender, nut bag, high speed hand blender.
  • Large kitchen:  twin gear juicer, dehydrator, water purifier, distiller, sprouter, table top blender.

Consider your budget:  How much do you want to spend on your new kitchen equipment?  If you are on a tight budget, choose only what you need most.  To save money, you might consider asking for (money for) kitchen tools for Christmas or your birthday.   Low budget:  Fill this in with what you think you can afford.

A Dozen Great Reasons Why We Do Lymphatic Exercise At Creative Health Institute

A Dozen Great Reasons Why We  Do Lymphatic Exercise At Creative Health Institute

Lymphacizing” – Lymphatic Exercise for Vibrant Health…  Mention the heart or the cardiovascular system and most people have a pretty good idea of what that is and how it functions. Mention the lymphatic system which is vitally important to our health and you will find most people don’t understand much about it; Some have not even heard of it. The lymph system is interactive with every organ, and is directly related to immune function and efficiency.

  1. FUN FACTS ABOUT THE LYMPH SYSTEM
    It is a protector and a defense mechanism against infection, viruses, bacteria, fungi, and disease.
  2. The lymphatic system is not connected to the heart, so it has to rely upon some other activity to create the necessary pumping action it needs to circulate.
  3. It is comprised of fluid, vessels, ducts and various other organs and structures.
  4. It clears toxins, wastes, excess fluids, and infection from all tissues of the body through proper flow and drainage, but only if this essential system is functioning at its peak efficiency.
  5. Unlike the cardiovascular system which delivers life-giving oxygen and nutrients to all the organs and cells of the body, and is connected to a pump – the heart; The lymphatic system has no automatic pump.
  6. The lymphatic system is filled with millions of one-way valves that allow lymph fluid to flow in only one direction – usually upward, away from gravity. Almost anything that can stimulate the movement of lymph fluid inside the lymph vessels of the system is healthy, but the most efficient way to stimulate the flow of lymph fluid is rebounding.
  7.  The lymphatic system is  connected to every cell and organ of the body, but its function is completely different from that of the cardiovascular system. It is the “garbage collector”, the internal vacuum cleaner that sucks up metabolic garbage, toxins, and excess fluid from the extracellular fluid of every organ.
  8. If the lymph systems flow is impaired, the fluid becomes toxic. The parts of the body that rely on it for elimination become less efficient and sluggish as they fill with their own waste.
  9. The lymph system can becomea breeding ground for infection, whe it become sluggish
  10. When toxic lymph fluid enters the bloodstream, as is part of the normal process, infection can now spread to any organ or part of the body. Many viruses, bacteria, and parasites stay locked within the lymphatic system when these conditions are present. The result: physical ailments, degenerative disease, hastening of the aging process, even death.
  11. The three most important methods of lymphatic circulation are external massage, muscle activity, and vigorous exercise.
  12. Here at Creative Health Institute we do a half hour of rebounding every morning. Rebounding’s up and down rhythmic bouncing causes all of the one-way valves to open and close simultaneously, increasing lymph flow as much as fifteen times, during the simple half hour lymphasizing workout!
  13. Lymphasizing hels  the body eliminate foreign matter from one part of the body to another. Most of us thinks only about our eliminative organs, such as the bowels, kidneys, or lungs, but toxins also are elimated via  joints, lymph system and our larges organ the skin.

SYMPTOMS

Many people have a badly congested lymphatic system and don’t even know it. In the U.S., the lymphatic system is the most over-looked system of the human body. In Europe, stimulation of the lymph flow is the fourth most commonly prescribed medical treatment. Most US health-care practitioners seldom consider the lymphatic system’s critical role in preventing illness, or its importance to the overall healing process. Some of the organs that are part of the lymphatic system are lymph nodes, lymph veins, tonsils, adenoids, appendix, and the spleen… and you know what happens to those parts of the body whenever surgeons get close to them. Swollen glands, with which most of us are familiar, are symptomatic of blocked lymph nodes, which indicate a breakdown in the functioning of the lymphatic system. Other examples of congested lymphatics are: Allergies, chronic sinusitis, heart disease, eczema and other skin conditions, loss of energy, fibrocystic disease, chronic fatigue, repetitive parasitic infections, MS, edema, lupus, erythematosis, inflammation, high blood pressure, viral infections, puffy eyes, bacterial infections, low back pain, cancer, ear or balance problems, arthritis, headaches, cellulite, excessive sweating, obesity, and more! Rebound exercise is one of the most efficient exercises for stimulating lymph flow and thats why we meet every morning to”Lymphacizie.”

Wishing everyone the best health and lives filled with love and grace.
