About Candidasis

 

There are more than 20 species of Candida, the most common being Candida albicans. These fungi live on all surfaces of our bodies. Candida yeast grows naturally in the gut, however, when this yeast multiplies out of control it can unbalance your whole system, creating an acidic environment where yeast over-growth and bad bacteria can thrive. Over time this imbalance in the intestinal flora lowers the immune system, leaving the us open to sickness and disease…. In addition, the presence of heavy metals in a person with Candida can mean that even when they are on a strict anti-candida diet the yeast may not be brought under control. After more thant 2 years of research, CHI’s Candida detox and rebuild program has been carefully designed to target the problem by seeking to eliminate the yeast overgrowth on a permanent basis. Sending everyone love peace and health, Bobby

Creative Health Institutes Teaching On COPD Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Many people come to Creative Health Institute to learn how to get relief from COPD. We have a complete training program for those who need help or would like to help those who suffer from this terrible disease.
Our Health and Education Director Robert “Bobby Morgan” teaches classes which cover all the specific types of foods and herbs which are used in helping COPD sufferers obtain relief. If you know of anyone who is suffering from this disease or you would like to lean learn more about COPD, call Creative Health Institutes toll free number, 866.426.1213 and we will send a information packed brochure, which cover CHI’s COPD programs.

Causes of COPD
The primary causes of COPD is long term cigarette smoking, the more years you smoke and the more packs you smoke, the greater your risk. Symptoms of COPD usually appear about 10 years after you start smoking, but other irritants can cause COPD including second hand smoke, occupational dust, vapors, hazardous fumes, asbestos as well as air pollution have all been shown to be contributing factors. In very rare cases, COPD results from a genetic disorder that causes low levels of a protein called alpha-1-antitrypsin.

Early Warning Signs
Early warning signs of COPD are unique to each person and you may not even realize that you are having trouble breathing. Therefore we have put together some signs to watch for. If you find that you have any of these symptoms you may want to talk to your doctor since a change, combination or increase in the symptoms I have listed may be an early warning sign of COPD.

Are You Experiencing One Or More Of The Following:
1. An increase in the amount of sputum produced (Sputum: The mucus and other matter brought up from the lungs, bronchi, and trachea that one may cough up and spit out or swallow)
2. An increase in the thickness or stickiness of sputum
3. A change in sputum color to yellow or green or the presence of blood in the sputum
4. An increase in the severity of shortness of breath, cough and/or wheezing
5. Using more pillows or sleeping in a chair instead of a bed to avoid shortness of breath
6. A general feeling of ill health
7. Ankle swelling
8. Forgetfulness, confusion, slurring of speech and sleepiness
9. Increasing morning headaches, dizzy spells, restlessness
10. Trouble sleeping
11. An unexplained increase or decrease in weight
12. Increased feeling of fatigue and lack of energy that is persistent
13. A lack of sexual drive

Once COPD has been diagnosed, early treatment is most effective, timely assessment of your symptoms can help you and your healthcare provider decide the type of treatment that will most benefit you.

Many of our guests have chosen to augment their treatment of COPD with more holistic approaches designed to strengthening their immune systems. They feel that eating raw living foods diet, drinking wheatgrass and taking wheatgrass baths, enemas and implants, help to alleviate many of their COPD symptoms. Guests also use herbs and supplements. to enhance their ability to deal effectively with COPD. Some of the herbs and supplements our guests seem to find helpful are:

Herbs & Supplements
1. Comfrey leaves – help because they stimulate new cell growth and support quick healing. This makes it an excellent natural remedy for the lungs. It inhibits the cough reflex, softens and soothes damaged and inflamed bronchial mucus membranes. It helps to loosen mucus from the bronchial tubes so that it does not accumulate. You can buy comfrey leaf or root in various forms. Check with your Doctor before taking this herb.
2. Black tea – many COPD sufferers turn to tea for relief from tightening in the chest. Black tea contains chemicals related to the stimulant theophylline, which is also the basis of many modern medical remedies. Three or four cups of black tea can open airway passages and ease breathing.
3. Ginkgo – when used regularly the active ingredient has helped some patients to cut down on prescribed medication. Taken three times a day for a week or a month at a time. Ginkgo helps relax the lungs and keeps the breathing passage clear. Check with your Doctor before taking this herb.
4. Vitamin C and magnesium – improves lung function.
5. Pleurisy Root – possesses a specific action on the lungs, assisting expectoration, subduing inflammation and exerting a general mild tonic effect on the system, making it valuable in all chest complaints. It is of great use in pleurisy, mitigating the pain and relieving the difficulty of breathing, and is also recommended in pulmonary catarrh. The infusion may be prepared by taking 1 teaspoonful of the powder in a cupful of boiling water. The decoction is taken in doses of 2 to 3 fluid ounces. The dose of the fluid extract is 1/2 to 1 drachm; of Asclepin, 1 to 4 grains. A much-recommended herbal recipe is: Essence of composition powder, 1 OZ.; fluid extract of Pleurisy Root, 1 OZ. Mix and take a teaspoonful three or four times daily in warm water. Doctor before taking this herb.
6. Yerba Santa Holy Herb – medicines prepared with it or its extracts to treat bronchial and laryngeal problems. In addition, in combination with other herbs such as Grindelia robusta (good for Asthmatic bronchitis) yerba santa is also effective in curing insistent pulmonary infections, hay fever and asthma. There is no proven safe or effective dose for yerba santa in adults. Traditionally, 1-2 milliliters of fluid extract has been taken by mouth with a spoon every 3-4 hours for no more than ten days.

WHAT IS THE FIRST THING SOMEONE SHOULD DO IF THEY HAVE CANCER?

SIMPLE – THEY SHOULD EAT A TOTALLY RAW ORGANIC LIVE FOOD DIET!
In my opinion, only raw organic living food has the enzymes, vitamins, phytonutrients and minerals intact.  If you want to get the nourishment you need to survive cancer eating organic raw live foods and only organic raw live foods, while you have cancer will provide your body with the energy it needs to create clean healthy cells, destroy the cancer cells and replace them with new healthy cells.  I believe you can push cancer into remission, ultimately destroy it and live a cancer free life.

Eating only organic raw fruits, vegetables, fermented food, nuts, seed and sprouted grains will give you the best chance of not only surviving the cancer, but will also enable you to strengthen your immune system and put a stop to any other sicknesses or diseases that may have gained ground in your body.

When I say you need to eat a organic raw living food diet it mean just that. That  means you must completely stop doing what you have been doing and to not eat any cooked food – Zero-Zilch-Nada – NOTHING COOKED!

Destroying cancer cells is serious business and if you are going to survive and have a healthy long life, you must be able to stop eating cooked foods and do what other people will not do! Think about it… Chemotherapy, radiation, hospitals, drugs, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, body aches, baldness, absolute exhaustion, immune system torn own, being sick every day, financial ruin, etc. OR choose to simply eat organic living foods that provide your body with everything it needs to heal itself.

All of our guests at Creative Health Institute (CHI) eat only 100% organic, nutrient dense, raw living foods which are properly combined and easily assimilated. Dead food is never served and because we adhere to the living food principal taught by Dr. Ann Wigmore we always make sure that every meal is enriched with sprouted foods.

 If you or a loved one is suffering from any disease, or sickness consider going on a 100% raw organic living food diet, until the sickness or disease has be alleviated. I spend time with 100’s of sick people every month and with most I see what many people would consider miracles as these individuals take charge of their own health and bring about their own healings, by simply using raw organic living foods as the basis for their turnarounds.

Since 1973 Creative Health Institute has taught more then 19,000 people how to take charge of their health and to overcome sickness and disease through by living a raw food lifestyle.

Wishing everyone the greatest of health and happiness,

Can You Be An Athlete And Eat A Raw Living Foods Diet?

What Do These World Class Athletes Have In Common? 

Bob Mionske, Esq. Portland, OR – U.S. Olympic Racing Cyclist, 1992;

Tim VanOrden – US Masters Champion Mountain Runner, 2010

Brendan Brazier – Canadian Champion:  50km Ultra Marathon, 2006;

Christine Vardaros – Champion World Class Cyclo-Cross Racer, 2007 Team USA

Kenneth G. Williams-Third at the U.S. Natural Mr. Olympia, 2004

James Southwood – International Kickboxing Champion, 2006

    They represent a new group of elite, super-vegan champion athletes, who are raising the competitive bar and setting new records  in the world of sports, according to recent press articles.  The secret weapon of these super athletes secret weapon is a nutrition coming from almost an exclusively or mainly made up of raw living foods.  All of them are dedicated to the live food diet and lifestyle, as it gives them the competitive edge,  enabling  them to achieve levels of health, strength, speed, stamina and agility that was not available to them before making this diet the center of their training regimen, according to their own comments.

     The ranks of professional champion and amateur  athletes are growing daily as they are reaping the benefits of utilizing raw live foods to enhance their performance.  They understand the raw living foods they’re eating are enzyme rich, loaded with oxygen and nutrient dense, according to what I’ve read about them.  With their old diets of mainly cooked food they were missing out on the enzymes and oxygen along with tremendous losses of vitamins and phyto-nutrients. 

     Enzymes are especially vulnerable to heat and many of them begin to lose their ability to function at 110 degrees Fahrenheit and are completely destroyed when the foods they are in reach 120 degrees Fahrenheit, according to my reading.  Once the exogenous enzymes are dead the entire digestion and nutrient assimilation process is left up to the indigenous enzymes to perform these functions, according to the legendary health practitioner Ann Wigmore, NMD.

    The problem is that our bodies only have a limited number of enzymes available and as we get older we are not able to make them at the levels that are required for optimum athletic performance, in-fact by the time a human reaches 50 years old they have less than 50% of the indigenous enzymes that they had at 25 years of age, according to my research.

   All humans, not just elite athletes need enzymes, which are the organic catalysts responsible for either starting chemical reactions or speeding them up, according to Dr. Ann.  Enzymes are also proteins, but unlike other proteins they have innate intelligentsia, according to many scientists.  Think of enzymes working much like a traffic cop, in that they direct and regulate the actions of the vitamins, minerals, phyto-nutrient and amino acids sending them along the body’s highways making sure they get off at the right exit.   You can also picture them as workers on a house construction site.   The vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are the building blocks.   As the workers on the house building site the enzymes take the building block to the house and place them where they should go. 

   Live, raw foods are the only 100% natural, healthy, source of nutrients that have what the body needs so it can function at the highest health levels possible, according to my experience.  The enzymes and high levels of oxygen, which athletes require to build and maintain muscles, are only found in raw living foods.  Best of all these foods do not have the toxins that are created by cooked foods and as much as 95% of the protein is available from all raw living foods, according to my experience.  Athletes who want to perform at the highest levels need high levels of protein and iron.   These necessary levels are found in sprouted seeds, grains and nuts which provide athletes with the highest levels of oxygen and bio-available amino acids, which insures high levels of protein and easy bio-availability and assimilation.

     Bobby’s ABC’s of Raw Living Food Athlete’s Diet

  1. 100% Live Foods:  Mix and match sprouted seeds nuts and grains.  These amazing foods are rich in amino acids, complex carbohydrate, zinc, B vitamins and enzymes.  To get the full benefit of these foods, blend them into energy soups or smoothies.  See the spouting chart at creativehealthinstitute/blog.com.
  2. Raw Fruits and Vegetables:  Choose from every color of the rainbow!  The high antioxidant ratings found in these amazing foods will ward off the toxins that are part of our internal and external environment, according to research arising from original work by Nobel Laureate Otto Warburg.  Don’t forget the leafy greens as they are loaded with more bio-available amino acids along with calcium, iron and every vitamin, mineral, &phyto-nutrient your body requires for strength, health and vitality, according to nutritionists.  Eat these foods in blended form and your body will not cry out for any kind of vitamin supplementation.   
  3. Probiotics:  Healthy bacteria are an essential part of your digestive system.  Fermented foods such as rejuvelac, seed cheese and sauerkraut provides super-powerful strains of pro-biotics, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants.

 

Wishing all of our friends and family the healthiest lives ever!

CHI DETOX – Family Style

Jimmy Ehrhart, 15


Jessica Ehrhart, 12

Standing in front of a small group of Creative Health Institute guests with a Sharpie in hand and a smile on his face, Jimmy Ehrhart, 15, recorded numbers on a large pad of paper propped upon an easel.

“I feel great right now,” Jimmy told the other guests who were going through a 10-day detox with him. It was the beginning of Day 8 and relief had come for Jimmy and others who had experienced the typical uncomfortable symptoms people have when they withdraw from sugar, caffeine, high-protein and high-fat foods.  “I feel better than I have ever felt—honestly.”

The Camden, Michigan, teen was front-and-center for the morning and happy about the progress everybody was making  with the detox. Jimmy came to CHI with his younger sister, older brother, mother and grandfather. All of them wanted to make significant changes to their diets and health. They decided to go raw after reading books such as Victoria Boutenko’s Raw Family and watching videos including Thirty Days Raw.  Now that their detox at CHI is nearly complete, the family agrees visiting our nutritional education center in Hodunk, Michigan,  has been one of the the best things they’ve ever done together.

Jessica Ehrhart, 12, said she plans to spread the word about the great time she’s had with her family and new friends at  Creative Health Institute.

“I would like to see lots of families come here. I wish everyone in the world could do it because then everyone would just be healthy,” Jessica said. “Fast foods are gross!”

After seeing the videos and reading the books his mother exposed the family to in preparation of their detox, Jimmy still was a bit skeptical about how much a raw food diet could affect him. He was willing to give raw living foods a try because he had some health concerns and wanted to see what a difference the Ann Wigmore way of life could make. Jimmy said for several years he has suffered from asthma, allergies, trouble sleeping, snoring and being overweight.  It’s been tough for him to join the fun and games kids his age typically enjoy.

“I couldn’t play sports.  My friends, they all try to run around town and I have a hard time keeping up to them with the asthma, ” Jimmy said. “It is embarrassing to stay over a friend’s house because I snore so loud.”

Now Jimmy feels a new hope and expects he’ll be able to participate more fully in teenage activities he sees others enjoy.  His snoring stopped right away. He’s been sleeping well every night and his asthma hasn’t been bothering him at all.  He’s been exercising every day and says he feels hopeful that he’ll be able to keep up with his friends in basketball, football and baseball. He has always tried to participate in sports but due to his health issues he has spent most of his time on the bench.

Jimmy also had a problem with food allergies.  He said he especially seemed to be allergic to nuts, particularly cashews. At CHI he has found he can eat all different kinds of nuts without any allergic reaction. He said he believes it’s because he had been eating nuts that were not organic and all of the food at the center is organic.  He said he was really happy to learn that eating a raw food diet doesn’t mean a life-sentence of “boring salads.” He was especially impressed with a raw cashew-cheese-based blueberry cheesecake an intern made one night for a CHI guest who was celebrating her birthday during the detox.

Jessica said all along she was excited to come to the Creative Health Institute with her family. She said she knew she needed to make some changes in her life and she was ready to move forward.

“I would like to improve my asthma and coming here definitely helped it,” she said. “I was always on the couch. I couldn’t breathe so I always had to have an inhaler wherever I went. It is really horrible.”

Jessica hasn’t had to use her inhaler once during the 10-day detox.  On day eight she reported feeling better than she has felt in a very long time. She said she has “tons” of energy and now she can breath without wheezing — something she hasn’t been able to do since she was a small child.

One of Jessica’s favorite things about the 10-day detox at CHI has been the cooking lessons. Jessica helped make marinara sauce to serve at dinner one night and she said she was surprised by how simple and tasty it was. She also has enjoyed rebounding (jumping on a miniature trampoline) in the morning and sitting in the banya (our Russian-style sauna). She said she really wants to come back for the raw chef classes to learn how to make gourmet raw living foods.

Jimmy and Jessica’s mother, Kimberly Ehrhart, said she’s very happy her family came to CHI together to detox with raw living food. She’s eager for her next visit and suggesting to staff that she’d like to see a CHI reunion for guests in the summer.

“I would highly suggest the 10-day detox,” Kimberly said.  “It’s more than cleansing for your body and mind, and it’s more than just new relationships — it’s family.”

David Wolfe _ The Health Benefits Of Sea Vegetables

At Creative Health Institute we make sure you learn all the benefits of these amazing foods. You will learn when to eat them and the amounts you will need to eat. Dr. Ann Wigmore believed the consumption of sea vegetables, with there all most unparallelled array of minerals, vitamins and phyto-nutrients played a very important part  in our bodies ability to heal and for us to reach optimum health and happiness.

Raw or sun dried seaweed contains:

  • High protein content: from 20% in green algae to 70% in spirulina.
  • High mineral content, especially: iodine, calcium, iron, magnesium.
  • More vitamin C than oranges.
  • Natural iodine maintaining a healthy thyroid function.
  • Anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory properties
  • Large proportion of natural, organic iodine aiding in maintaining a healthy thyroid function (not to be compared with the toxic substitute added to table salt.
  • One of the richest plant sources of calcium.
  • Polysaccharides: important in the prevention of degenerative diseases including cardiovascular and diabetes 2, increase the amount of feel-good chemicals in the brain, improves liver function, stabilizes blood sugar.

This results in the following seaweed health benefits: healthy hair, improved memory, clear skin, good eyesight, dental health, healthy thyroid function, improved immune system, prevents allergies and infections, lowers blood pressure, nurtures healthy heart vessels, normalizes cholesterol levels, support bon health, aids in waste movement and digestion.

  4. Do not consume fats with proteins. (cheese* and meat again) 
  5. Use fats sparingly.  Beware of many items in the store that say “no fat” in their sales pitch.  They wouldn’t contain fat anyway. (animal fats, dairy products, palm oil, cottonseed oil and coconut) 
  6. Do not eat acid fruits with proteins.  Some lemon juice is fine on proteins.  Avocados combine well with acid fruit, sub-acid fruit and greens. (pineapple and ham) (tomatoes, meat, noodles – goulash, spaghetti) 
  7. Do not combine sweet fruits with proteins, starches or acid fruits, a common dessert mistake. (bananas on cereals) (strawberries and bananas) (dried fruit dehydrates the stomach). 
  8. Eat only one concentrated starch at a meal (potatoes, corn, pumpkin, etc.). 
  9. Acid fruits may be used with sub-acid fruits.  Don’t combine fruits opposite ends; combine at mid-ground. 
  10. Sub-acid fruits may be used with sweet fruit. 
  11. Combine fruit only with lettuce and celery.  Lettuce and celery may even enhance fruit digestion. 
  12. Salads combine very well with proteins, oil and starches.  Greens should make up a majority of our diet.  They leave the stomach quickly unless weighed down by oily dressings.
  13. Sprouts are great.  The best way to eat grains: referring back to #12, salads go well with starches or grains, so sprouts are great with salad. 
  14. Do not consume melons with any other foods.  They move through the stomach in 20 minutes.  If melons don’t agree with you, try them alone. 
  15. Liquids should not be used at any meal.  Dilutes your digestive juices / Prevents us from chewing / Prevents us from secreting saliva. 

 *Keep in mind Creative Health Institutes program does not include meat, dairy, or any other food products linked to animals.

Wishing everyone the best year ever.

Sleep is a Necessity … Not a Luxury At Creativee Health Institute

Here at Creative Health all of our students are taught how to incorporate good sleep habits and how to identify which natural non habit forming sleep aids will assist them and others in their healing journeys.  We know,  for our bodies to overcome physical stresses we need to feed ourselves living foods combined with proper rest. These two elements are the basis for boosting the bodies immune system and putting the brakes on illnesses and disease that stress the body.

 The Center for Disease Control has adopted the slogan, “Sleep is a necessity … not a luxury” and has even implemented a viral e-card campaign on the Internet to spread the word.

Are you getting by with 5 to 6 hours of sleep or less per night? Have you convinced yourself you can function just fine on this small amount of of sleep?

The National Sleep Foundation has noted that the need for sleep changes as we age, but as a general guideline, adults need at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep during every 24 hour period. Sleep is when our body rebuilds muscle, calms nerves, balances hormones and does overall repair to the damages that  physical and mental stresses our body systems have endured during our waking hours. 

30% to 50%  of north Americans are getting insufficient sleep. Pour sleeping habits and insomnia weaken the immune system, brings on depression, aches and pains, weight gain,  lowered mental capabilities,  confusion, irritability, headaches and even death.

Best Life Ever!

You Are Controlled By Circadian ‘Believe It or Not’

It is now known that the molecular circadian clock can function within a single cell. At the same time, different cells may communicate with each other resulting in a synchronised output of electrical signaling.

Studies of circadian rhythms have turned up the following sometimes hard-to-believe information: 

  1. If we were to live in total darkness, we would fall into a cycle of days that last up to 25 hours or longer.
  2. Heart attacks are twice as likely to occur between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. as between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. and between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
  3. Body temperature is lowest before waking up in the morning, and highest in the late afternoon. A temperature of 99 degrees Fahrenheit might indicate fever at 7 a.m., but by 5 p.m. would be normal.
  4. People react more strongly to substances they’re allergic to around 11 p.m., while antihistamine drugs have the greatest impact in the morning.
  5. Eating one meal a day of 2,000 calories results in a weight loss when eaten as breakfast, but produces a weight gain as supper.
  6. Suicides peak in the morning and early afternoon.
  7. The length of time a person sleeps is related more closely to body temperature rhythms and bedtime than to how long the person has been awake. In experiments, even after being awake more than 20 hours, people free of time cues slept twice as long when they went to bed when their temperature was at its highest (in early evening) than when it was at its lowest (in the early morning).
  8. The senses of hearing, taste and smell are more acute at certain times of day. Studies show sensory acuity is highest at 3 a.m., falls off rapidly to a low at 6 a.m., then rises to another peak between 5 and 7 p.m. (This cycle is related to the hormone cycle; when steroid hormones are released, sensory acuity falls.) 
  9. Aspirin stays in the body longer when taken at 7 a.m. than when taken at 7 p.m.Body clocks are why doctors often prescribe taking medicines at certain times of day. For example, both aspirin and antihistamines work best taken in the morning. But some types of chemotherapy for cancer may be more effective and less toxic if administered at night.
  10. Women go into labor most often between 1:30 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. and least frequently about midday. Births between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. are associated with increased probability of complications in both the baby and the mother.

When you come to CHI you will learn about the raw live food lifestyle. Understanding Circadian Rythms  is an important part of living a healthy, happy lifestyle. Please call us to find out more about our programs for 2012.  We can be reached at 866.426.1213. 

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy new year, Bobby.

6 Herbs That May Help Balance Your Cortisol Levels And Help You Lose Weight

6 Herbs To Help Balance Your Cortisol Levels

While cortisol is an important and helpful part of the body’s response to stress, it’s important that the body’s relaxation response to be activated so the body’s functions can return to normal following a stressful event. Unfortunately, in our current high-stress culture, the body’s stress response is activated so often that the body doesn’t always have a chance to return to normal, resulting in a state of chronic stress.

Higher and more prolonged levels of cortisol in the bloodstream (like those associated with chronic stress) have been shown to have negative effects, such as:

  • Impaired cognitive performance
  • Suppressed thyroid function
  • Blood sugar imbalances such as hyperglycemia
  • Decreased bone density
  • Decrease in muscle tissue
  • Higher blood pressure
  • Lowered immunity and inflammatory responses in the body, slowed wound healing, and other health consequences
  • Increased abdominal fat, which is associated with a greater amount of health problems than fat deposited in other areas of the body. Some of the health problems associated with increased stomach fat are heart attacks, strokes, the development of metabolic syndrome, higher levels of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and lower levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL), which can lead to other health problems!

At Creative Health Institute Our Students Are Taught How To Balance Cortisol Levels With These Herbs

  • Maca: This amazing herb/food is one of the most powerful adaptogens in the world. It increases oxygen levels in the blood, feed the adrenals and balances cortisol levels. This powerful herb is nontoxic and works at the root of the cortisol balancing problem, rather than masking symptoms.
  • Reishi Mushroom: Lowers cortisol as it reduces stress.   It’s very calming and actually performs like a sedative while improving adrenal gland function. When our adrenals are functioning properly, our cortisol levels will be balanced.
  • Holy Basil: This cortisol lowering herb does its job because it’s amazing for the immune system and anytime the immune system is strong then the body naturally reduces cortisol. Don’t skip this one.
  • Green Tea: Works to lower cortisol and stress because it’s extremely high in antioxidants and also minimizes the effects of environmental pollutants, inflammation and other forms of metabolic stress.
  • Rhodiola: A good adaptogenic herb, which helps to balance out the body. It’s also great for improving attention span, mood and mental clarity. Children who have been diagnosed with ADD or any other hyper activity disorder will benefit greatly from this herb.
  • Ginseng: Is a great adaptogenic herb which helps with strengthening our immune system and helps to overcome exhaustion due to psychological and physical stresses. This is a great herb to replace the false boost that is associated with drinking caffeinated drinks which create a physical imbalance and  increase cortisol levels.

Wishing all of our friends and alumni the best health ever.

  • 1 cup Rejuvelac
  • ½ avocado – DO NOT USE BANANA – WITH THE AVOCADO

Herbs That Affect Our Blood Pressure

Many of our guests, upon leaving Creative Health Institute, enhance their own healing journey by utilizing herbs for a period of time. This practice does not diminish the effect of the detox and rebuild programs that have helped our guests for more than 30 years. In many instances it helps  our guests strengthen their immune systems as they combine herbal  based therapy and apply what they have learned during their stay at the institute.   Some of our former guest choose to include herbal formulas, essential oils and aromatherapy to augment their health program. Taking herbs, and using essential oils and aromatherapy for medicinal purposes should only be done under the supervision of a Master Herbalist and/or a health specialist.

Some herbs which may lower blood pressure include:

Aconite/monkshood, arnica, baneberry, betel nut, bilberry, black cohosh, bryony, calendula, California poppy, coleus, curcumin, eucalyptol, eucalyptus oil, evening primrose oil, flaxseed, garlic, ginger, ginkgo, goldenseal, green hellebore, hawthorn, Indian tobacco, jaborandi, mistletoe, night blooming cereus, oleander, pasque flower, periwinkle, pleurisy root, shepherd’s purse, Texas milkweed, turmeric, and wild cherry.

Some herbs that may increase blood pressure include:

Arnica, bayberry, betel nut, blue cohosh, broom, cayenne, cola, coltsfoot, ephedra/Ma huang, ginger, licorice, Polypodium vulgare , and yerba mate.

Arnica is in both lists.This is because a particular herb whicht can lower blood pressure in its primary action, and may result in the with raising high blood pressure as a secondary reaction.

That is why you will observe sometimes contradictory rubrics for the same symptom. You can find Lyco worse with heat, and also better with heat, in most of the repertories.

Help For Your Heart

Keep in mind, once a person has been started on a drug therapy, it becomes more difficult to recommend an herb therapy that might also be of assistance,  largely because of fears that the herbs will interact with the drugs, disturbing the effectiveness of the drugs.  Further, most physician know little about herbs and are rightfully concerned about the herb ability to interact with the drugs they are administering.  If you are taking any prescribed medications, please check with you physician before incorporating these herbs into your lifestyle.

CAYENNE PEPPER

Cayenne pepper is a central circulatory stimulant. If you use cayenne on a regular basis you will improve the natural cleansing mechanism of your entire body, and this is particularly helpful in conditions of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and many other chronic illnesses. Cayenne nourishes the heart and helps arteries, veins and capillaries regain the elasticity of youth by feeding cell structure. It helps equalize circulation by regulating the flow of blood from the head to the feet and strengthens the pulse by increasing its power (not frequency) while lowering overall blood pressure.

GARLIC

Without a doubt, garlic (Allium sativa) provides the body with protection against cardiovascular sluggishness. Garlic is one of nature’s most studied and helpful herbs. Scientific trials reveal that it can lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, raise high-density lipoprotein levels (HDL, the good cholesterol), reduce the formation of plaque in carotid arteries and provide protection against aging in the all-important aorta–the cardiac blood vessel responsible for maintaining blood flow and pressure with every heartbeat.

HAWTHORN

Hawthorn is a plant which kept Brechnev alive for ten years. The Soviets know a lot about herbal medicine. Hawthorn is a regulator of the rhythm of the heart; it increases the force of contraction so that the output of blood from the heart is improved, and it’s a restorative of the heart muscle. We can use this to protect the heart against hypertension in the case of high blood pressure.

Hawthorn also prevents the buildup of cholesterol in the liver by encouraging the breakdown of cholesterol into bile acids. When used for a long period of time (weeks or months), extracts of hawthorn dilate blood vessels, including vessels of the coronary system, giving better blood flow through the heart and throughout the body. Hawthorn also affects intracellular calcium levels in the heart muscle, resulting in improved cardiac function and lowered spastic cardiac conditions.

Essential Oils – Frankincense & Sandalwood  – Place on Chakras and primary acupressure points.

The Nutritional Power In 1 Cup Of Raw Tomatoes

The following information was covered in a lecture I gave on the nutrient density of raw living food when compared to cooked foods. I shared this information with Creative Health Institute (CHI) students in October 2009. I hope it helps you to appreciate the amazing health benefits we receive, when we eat the way we were intended to eat. Dr. Ann Wigmore’s teachings have inspired me to research the science or raw living foods. I am planning on adding an additional section to the blog that focuses on raw living food nutrition.

Peace, Blessings, Love & Gratitude,

Bobby

Nutrients In One Cup Of Tomatoes

Protein: 1.58 g – The recommended daily protein requirements for humans are derived from “ideal body weight”. The ideal body weight is calculated based on height and varies slightly for men and women.

Our protein requirements can also be expressed in terms of total caloric intake, The World Health Organization (WHO), and many national health agencies have independently conducted studies, which (even though they differ slightly) all conclude our daily protein requirement should be between 10% to 15% of our daily caloric intake. Proteins are necessary for building the structural components of the human body, such as muscles and organs. You also need proteins to keep your immune system healthy, synthesize neurotransmitters, create and signal hormones, and much more. A balanced raw living food diet supplies the body with all of the protein it needs. Living food protein is found in nuts, seeds, sprouts, vegetables and sweet and non-sweet fruits.

Calcium: 18 mg – daily requirement is 1000 -1200 mg. Calcium is a mineral that gives strength to bones and teeth. It is important for muscle contraction, blood clotting, and nerve function. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body.Good sources – sunflower seeds, dark-green leafy vegetables

Iron: 0.49 mg – Daily requirement 8 mg a day for men 16 mg a day for women. Iron is a mineral found in every living cell. It is part of red blood cells and muscle proteins. Iron helps the blood cells and muscles to carry and hold oxygen and then release it when needed. Iron is essential to make enzymes and hormones. Good sources – dark-green vegetables,

Magnesium: 20 mg – Daily requirement – 420 mg/day for Males · 320 mg/day for Females. Magnesium is a mineral important for muscle contractions, a healthy nervous system, immune system and strong bones. It is involved in hundreds of enzyme reactions in the body. Good sources seeds, nuts, dark green vegetables, wheat grass. 

Phosphorus: 43 mg – Daily requirement 700 mg/day.  Phosphorous is a critical component of every cell. It works with the B vitamins to generate energy. Phosphorus is necessary for growth of bones and teeth; bones and teeth are 85% phosphorous. It works with sodium and potassium to maintain acid-base balance, and assist in muscle contraction, kidney function, heartbeat regulation, and in nerve conduction. Second to calcium in the body. Bones and teeth are 85% Phosphorus. Good sources all fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, and sprouts.

Potassium:427 mg No minimum RDA An adequate daily amount of potassium for adults is 4,700 mg/ day. Potassium maintains heartbeat and is important in many metabolic reactions. It balances fluid inside and outside the cells to maintain normal cell function. Potassium blunts the rise of blood pressure in response to excess dietary sodium. A high potassium diet might help prevent bone loss and kidney stones. Good sources – The highest sources are apricots, figs, prunes, bananas, oranges and orange juice, cantaloupe, honeydew, sweet potatoes and tomatoes

Sodium: 9 mg –  250 -500 mg a day is sufficient. Our  kidneys conserve and release sodium as needed. For “salt-sensitive” people, blood pressure will increases in direct proportion to increases in sodium intake. About 60% of adults with high blood pressure are salt sensitive. Blood pressure above120 systolic/80 diastolic is high. In countries where sodium intake is low, there is less hypertension, cardiovascular disease and stroke. Excess sodium may also weaken the bones by promoting calcium excretion.

Zinc: 0.31 mg The RDA for Zinc for healthy adults is:11 mg/day for healthy males 8 mg/day for healthy females. Zinc is a mineral that is needed for growth, especially during pregnancy and childhood, and for tissue building and repair. It is involved in wound healing, maintaining a healthy immune system, and cell reproduction. Zinc is a component of over 100 enzymes in the body. Good sources – sunflower seeds pumpkin seeds, Almonds pine nuts, pecans, walnuts, cashews, nuts, blackberries and kiwi.

Vitamin C: 22.9 mg  – The Recommended Dietary Allowance is 90 milligrams a day for males and 75 milligrams a day for females. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant  protecting cells against oxidizing damage, helps wounds to heal, fights infections, promotes healthy bones, teeth, gums and blood vessels, and aids in the absorption of iron. Good sources -Fruits and vegetables are high in Vitamin C. The highest are red and green peppers, oranges, cantaloupe, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and tomatoes. 

Thiamin B Vitamin:0.067 mg – RDA 1.2 mg/day for males and 1.1 mg/day for females. Thiamin is a water soluble B vitamin, also known as vitamin B1. It helps produce energy from carbohydrate on a cellular level, and is very important for nerve conduction and muscle function. Alcoholics are very low on Thiamin – Not enough causes BERIBERI , both  wet and dry. Good sources – Brazil nuts, pecans, spinach, tomatoes, cantaloupe and oranges.

Riboflavin B2 Vitamin: 0.034 mg –  adults are 1.3 mg/day for males and 1.1 mg/day for females. Riboflavin is a water-solublevitamin, which helps us get energy from carbohydrates. It is important for growth and red blood cell production. It also helps to convert the amino acid, tryptophan, to the B vitamin, niacin. Good sources- Almonds,  broccoli, asparagus, and spinach.

Niacin B Vitamin: 1.069 mg The RDA for niacin (as NE) in healthy adults is 16 mg/day for males and 14 mg/day for females. Niacin is a water-soluble B vitamin, essential for energy metabolism in the cells, the proper functioning of the gastrointestinal and nervous systems, healthy skin, and the release of energy from carbohydrates, fats and protein. Affects the proper functioning of over 50 much-needed enzymes in the body. Niacin also has the ability to lower the LDL cholesterol (coined as bad cholesterol) level and prevent build-up of plaque on arterial walls. Good sources –  Niacin rich foods include almonds and seeds, wheat grass, green leafy vegetables, carrots, turnips and celery.

Pantothenic Acid – B Complex Vitamin:0.160 mg – 5mg a day is good. Pantothenic Acid is a water-soluble vitamin that is one of the B complex vitamins. It is involved in the release of energy from carbohydrates and helps to metabolize protein, fat and carbohydrates from food. Pantothenic acid plays a part in 100 different chemical reactions needed to produce lipids, steroids, hemoglobin, and other substances in the body. Good Sources – mushrooms, avocadoes, broccoli, and sweet potatoes.

Vitamin B6:0.144 mg – 1.3 – 1.7 mg per day. Vitamin B6, is a water-soluble vitamin needed by the nervous and immune systems. Vitamin B6 helps nerve cells to communicate. It is involved in making hormones, insulin, antibodies, and cell membranes, and is needed for the normal breakdown of protein, carbohydrates and fat. Vitamin B6 helps to maintain blood sugar within the normal range. Vitamin B6 also aids in the formation of niacin from the amino acid, tryptophan. Good sources – bananas, spinach, leafy greens, wheat grass, sprouts.

Folate:27 mcg –  The RDA for folic acid is 400 micrograms /day. Folate is one of several B vitamins found in foods. It is vital for making new, healthy body cells. Low Folate causes –  General weakness, fatigue, depression, gastrointestinal problems, and frequent infections. Good sources – strawberries and citrus fruits and juices; leafy green vegetables such as spinach and romaine lettuce, wheatgrass Folic acid, a man-made form of folate.

Vitamin A:1500 IU – International Units (IU) on food and supplement labels. Adult men require 3000 IU/day and women need 2310 IU/day. There is no RDA for provitamin A. Vitamin A is needed for: Vision, immunity, growth and reproduction. It keeps the mucous linings of he respiratory, urinary, and intestinal tracts healthy to prevent bacteria and viruses from entering.  Vitamin A is usually abundant in colorful fruits and vegetables is in a form that can be converted to Vitamin A (provitamin A). Carotenoids, like beta-carotene, are examples of provitamin A.  Good sources – Pro vitamin A is found in dark green and bright orange vegetables and fruits like spinach, sweet potatoes carrots, cantaloupe, apricots, tomatoes and others. Deeper colors are associated with higher levels of  Pro Vitamin A.

Vitamin E:0.97 mg – The RDA for vitamin E for adults is 15mg/day. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects cells membranes from damage. It is particularly important for cells that carry oxygen like the cells of lungs and red blood cells. Vitamin E also has a role in immune function, DNA repair, and other metabolic processes. Good Sources – seeds, nuts,  wheat grass, sprouts, dark green leafy vegetables (like spinach, etc.), and tomato.

Vitamin K:14.2 mcg  – Vitamin K aids blood clotting, protects the heart, and helps to build bones. Allow your blood to clot normally; Helps protect against osteoporosis; Prevent oxidative cell damage.
Good sources – the major source of Vitamin K is green, leafy, vegetables – kale, collards, spinach, and turnip greens are the highest.

Phytonutrients

Beta Carotene:808 mcg. Beta Carotene, as an anti-oxidant, supports the cardiovascular system. And, after the body transforms Beta Carotene to Vitamin A, it helps maintain the health of the skin, immune system, and eyes. Vitamin A is an essential component of the epithelial cells which guard us from environmental toxins. Beta carotene both lowers cholesterol and helps minimize arterial hardening. It may also benefit sufferers of cataracts, cancer, AIDS, high blood pressure, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, headaches, and asthma. Beta carotene may also, because of its ability to act as a powerful antioxidant within the human body help prevent cancer and heart disease. In addition, because anti-oxidants neutralize the cell-structure damaging chemical reactions of free radical, beta carotene may slow free radical related aging and disease. A Harvard University study indicated that those who take 50mg of beta carotene daily have their risk of heart attacks and strokes cut in half! Beta carotene will also improve vision and skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema, and beta carotene acts to prevent the development of precancerous cells mouth and respiratory tract.

Lycopene: 4631 mcg. Lycopene is a natural pigment that gives the tomato its red colour.  It is also one of our most powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants have a protective effect on our cells and are often described as being ‘anti-aging’. Lycopene in particular has been noted for its ability to protect DNA and prevent disease, and it continues to be the subject of studies on heart disease and cancer. Lycopene is  released when the food is cooked or when the cell walls are broken down by a high speed blender. Good Sources – Tomatoes and other bright colored vegetables.

Lutein: 221 mcg. Lutein is concentrated in the retinas of your eyes and is necessary for good vision. A diet rich in lutein may lower your risk of developing cataract and macular degeneration. Lutein may also help prevent or slow down atherosclerosis, the thickening of arteries, which is a major risk for cardiovascular disease. Good Sources – Carrots, squash and other orange and yellow fruits and vegetables are sources of lutein. Green leafy vegetables, such as spinach, also contain high amounts of lutein.

I hope this information will help you to better understand how important it is that we have a good variety of fresh fruits, leafy greens, sprouts, nuts and seeds in our diet.

Dehydrating – 8 Fun And Delicious Recipes

Here at Creative Health Institute we love to make great recipes in our dehydrators, but we always keep in mind that the majority of the food that Dr. Ann Wigmore believed we should be eating consists of sprouts, fresh leafy greens, fruits, vegetables, wild edibles and of course wheatgrass…

Basic Rules of Dehydrating

 

1. Choose fresh, high quality produce.

2. Produce should be carefully washed and prepared.

3. Remember to turn dehydrator no higher than 110 degrees as this is when damage to enzymes begin and at 120 degrees there are no living enzymes left.

4. Dry until food reaches desired consistency or doneness.

5. Store in a cool, dry, dark place and

6.  Some dried foods can be reconstituted (raisins, figs, other dried fruits and some vegetables) by soaking 5-6 hours or overnight. The soak water from fruits can be used to add sweetness to foods you are preparing.

7. Use dehydrated foods or reconstituted foods as snacks, in main dishes, cereals, salads or sauces.

8. Layer foods close but do not let touch

 Why Dehydrate?

 1. Nutritionally superior to dried foods that you would purchase from stores pr off the internet.  Much of the dehydrated food on the market have lower vitamin, mineral, enzyme and fiber content, due to being dried in high temperatures.

      1. No preservatives/chemicals are necessary.

2.  Flavor and color are maintained.

3.  Dried food keeps well.

4. Dried food uses less storage space.

5.  It is a perfect survival food.

6   Dried food is convenient and tasty.

7   Dehydrating food is an economically sound practice.

8. Takes advantage of bulk prices.

9.  Preserves oversupply of leftovers, produce, etc. (Use leftover energy soup as a

    base for crackers.)

10. Dry seasonal foods for off-season use.

 Dehydration Recipes

Food dehydration is a process of slowly heating foods at a low temperature so as not to destroy the enzymes and the nutrients. Food dehydrators come in a variety of sizes.

A very helpful way to eat while traveling is to keep dried foods on hand.  Bananas are good dried — just cut them into thin pieces and put in the dehydrator. They can be dried at the same time as the grain crisp.

Another good snack is dried zucchini squash. The zucchini only needs to be sliced ¼ inch to ½ inch thick. You may also make many different types of “candies and cookies”.  They can be kept in a plastic bag and served as fortification against the temptation to eat unhealthy foods while traveling.

Seasonings can also be dried: onions, parsley, scallions and any herb which has been grown in your garden. Any fresh vegetables lying unused in your refrigerator can be sliced and put into the dehydrator at the same time as your grain crisps. For reasons of economy, utilize all the space the dehydrator offers.

The most important thing to remember is not to set your dehydrator above 110 degrees, 105 is optimal.  Temperatures above 110 degrees begin to damage the enzymes and at 120 degrees the enzymes are destroyed. 

To conserve food you can dehydrate leftovers.

 Banana Pecan Cookies

8 bananas

1 1/2 cups pecans, ground or chopped fine

3 Tbs. raw carob powder

Honey to taste (optional)

Mash the bananas into a cream. Use a potato masher so some small chunks are left. This will make the cookie thicker. Add other ingredients and mix well. Spoon small amounts onto the dehydrator sheets and mash down. These will need to dehydrate for about 24 hours.

Sun Garden Burgers

3 T ground flax – see Note below

6 T water

1 cup carrot pulp – See Note below

1 cup sunflower seeds, ground

½ cup finely minced celery

6 T finely minced onion

2 T finely minced red pepper

1 t parsley

2 t coconut liquid aminos ( You can use Braggs or raw soy in place of the coconut aminos)

In a blender, combine the ground flax seeds and water, blending thoroughly.  Immediately pour the mixture into a bowl and set aside. Rinse the blender container before the mixture left in it hardens and becomes difficult to wash out.

In a medium-sized bowl, thoroughly mix the carrot pulp, sunflower seeds, celery, onion, parsley, red pepper and liquid aminos.  Add the flax seed mixture and mix thoroughly.  If necessary, add more water so the mixture can be formed into patties.  Form into six ½ inch thick patties.  Dehydrate for 4 – 8 hours, leave them in the sun until warm or place them in a warm oven for 10 – 15 minutes. 

NOTE:  To grind flax seeds, place them in an electric coffee grinder and grind until powdered.  To make carrot pulp, put carrots through a heavy-duty juicer, using a juicing screen.  Use the pulp in the recipe.  Drink the juice, or reserve it for another use.

Protein Cookies

The following recipes can be made with whatever sprouted nuts or seed-cheese you have on hand.

 – Nut Crunches

Soak nuts (pecans, almonds or walnuts, etc. – whatever is on hand), saving a few to chop dry. Blend the nuts with rejuvelac and add a similar amount of bananas to make a smooth batter. Blend in the reserved dry, chopped nuts. Drop by spoon onto a dehydrator sheet and dehydrate until ready. Tasty combinations suggested are Walnut/Banana and Almond/Banana. Experiment and enjoy!

(You may use sunflower seed-cheese as a substitute for the soaked nuts, however in addition to the banana you can add soaked prunes for improved flavor).

– Chewy Protein Treats

Soak nuts (pecans, almonds or walnuts, etc – whatever is on hand) and blend with rejuvelac. Add prunes and banana to the blender after nuts and rejuvelac are well blended. A good proportion is 1/2 quantity of nuts and 1/4 each of prune and banana. Drop by spoon onto dehydrator sheet and dehydrate until ready.

VARIATION – Same as above only use 1/2 quantity of nuts with the appropriate amount of rejuvelac and instead use 1/4 quantity of apple and 1/4 quantity of soaked dates. As above, drop by spoon and dehydrate until ready.

 Grain Crisps (bread replacements)

Use grains such as wheat, rye, kamut or spelt. For variety, add vegetables and/or herbs and spices. To sweeten, blend sprouted grain with banana and rejuvelac. Experiment!

1.         SOAK seeds for 12 hours. 

2.         SPROUT seeds for 2 days.

3.         BLEND with water or rejuvelac.

4.         POUR onto teflex dehydrator sheets and dehydrate at 110 degrees for 24 hours or

            longer, depending on the thickness..

6.         STORE in plastic containers (airtight not necessary). These will keep for several weeks.

Banana Sunflower Treats

8-10 Bananas

2-3 cups soaked sprouted sunflower seeds

A touch of cinnamon (optional)

Mash the bananas into a cream, leaving some small chunks for a heavy texture. Chop the sunflower seeds using a blender or a food processor. If you use the blender you will need to use enough rejuvelac or water to mix.  The blender will give you a finer texture. Spoon small amounts of the mixture onto dehydrator sheets and dehydrate until ready.

Mexican Flax Crackers

6 cups flaxseeds, soaked 4 – 6 hours in 5 ½ cups water

4 medium tomatoes, blended

1 red bell pepper, finely chopped

½ cup coconut amino acids

2 T lemon juice

2 t chili powder

2 t dried cilantro

1 t garlic powder

½ onion, chopped

½ t cayenne

Mix all ingredients well and adjust seasonings.  Keep the mixture moist and loose for spreading.  Spread mixture as thin as possible (approximately ¼ inch thick) on dehydrator trays with teflex sheets.  Keeping hands wet will help in the spreading.  Dehydrate at 105 degrees for 5 – 6 hours, flip crackers over and remove the teflex sheets.  Continue dehydrating for 4 – 5 hours or until the crackers are completely dry.

Corn Chips

 6 ears non sweet corn, remove from cob

½ yellow onion

2 cups sprouted sunflower seeds, soaked 6 hours and rinsed

¼ cup water

1 ½ T coconut  liquid aminos

1 t kelp powder

Process corn and onion in a food processor, using the “s” blade.  Stop and scrape the sides;  blend until smooth. Add sprouted sunflower seeds and process until the mixture is well blended and the consistency of a batter.  Add some water if the batter is too thick.  Add Braggs and kelp; mix well. Using a teaspoon, scoop batter onto the teflex sheet of a dehydrator tray.  Flatten with a knife into a flat round surface about 1/8” thick and 1 1/2” wide.  Dehydrate at 105 for 12 hours, then remove teflex sheet and turn chips over.  Continue dehydrating for 10 – 12 hours, or until desired crispness is obtained.

Experience The Healthful Feelings That Go With A Balanced pH

“Your energy will increase, you’ll find new mental clarity and powers of concentration, you’ll build strength and stamina, and you’ll lose excess body fat while increasing muscle mass. You’ll have bright eyes and clear skin. You’ll look better. You’ll improve your athletic performance. Your entire body will function more efficiently. Whatever health challenges you’ve been facing will improve and most likely evaporate altogether. In short, you’ll regain all the effortless energy and wellness you thought was lost with your childhood.”  Dr Robert O. Young, MS, D.Sc., Ph.D.   Author of “The pH Miracle”

Before we really get into the understanding of how to balance your pH we really need to under stand what is going on in our bodies. After food is digested in the body, it leaves behind a mineral residue (ash), which is excreted in the bodies systems.. Thus, specific foods have specific effects on the pH balance. All foods are either acid-ash, alkaline-ash or neutral-ash, meaning that they either decrease, increase or do not change the pH.  Your  pH can be changed by making different food choices. Scientifically it is explained as: pH, (from potential of Hydrogen) the logarithm of the reciprocal of hydrogen-ion concentration in gram atoms per liter; provides a measure on a scale from 0 to 14 of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution (where 7 is neutral and greater than 7 is more basic and less than 7 is more acidic);)

More important than the scientific definition is that we need to understand that different fluids, organs and systems in the human body have a delicate range of acid-alkaline balance that must be maintain for optimal functioning.

The only fluid that must remain constant, is our blood. Our blood pH should be slightly alkaline (7.35-7.45) and never go below or above this range. If our blood pH moves below 6.8 or above 7.8, cells stop functioning and the body dies. Therefore our bodies continually strives to balance our pH. When we measure pH a healthy range is between 6.4 and 7.5 for our bodies systems. This does not reflect our bloods pH

When our pH balance is compromised and drops below 6.4 then we must immediately do what we can to bring it back into balance. One of the easiest ways to re-balance our pH is to  drink water and ingest foods that reblance the pH. 

Generally, nutritionists hold that the ratio of alkaline to acid foods in the diet should be about 4 to 1—in other words, 80 percent of a person’s food intake should be alkaline and 20 percent acidic. The American diet tends to be more acidic than this ratio dictates; even the balanced diet prescribed by the food pyramid will leave more acid ash than is recommended by nutritionists concerned with pH.

At Creative Health Institute we see many guests who encounter health challenges  as well as life threatening diseases which may have been caused by over consuming foods which are acidic or acid-producing after they have been digested. It is our belief that millions of people suffer from problems caused by food induced acidosis. When we combine this problem with our fast paced modern lifestyle and our poorly combined Standard American Diet (SAD), we promote dangerous levels of acidification within our bodies.

An imbalanced diet high in acidic-producing foods such as animal protein, sugar, caffeine, and processed foods puts pressure on the body’s systems and cause them to struggle to maintain pH neutrality. A good example  would be soft drinks; To neutralize a glass of cola with a pH of 2.5, it would take 32 glasses of alkaline water with a pH of 10. The extra buffering that is needed to keep the body’s systems in a balanced state can deplete our bodies of alkaline minerals such as sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium, making us prone to serious health challenges and degenerative disease.

Every morning we test our pH levels before doing anything else. By using pH test strips our guests and students are able to determine their resting pH, which would be at the lowest point of the day.  pH should rise through out the day as we take in properly combined food that are designed to keep our bodies balanced and to protect the functioning of our immune system.

When our body’s systems are forced to keep doing extra duty in keeping our blood  and systems at the proper pH levels, minerals are borrowed from vital organs and bones to balance the pH,  neutralize acid and safely remove it from our body. Because of this strain, our bodies many times suffer severe and extenuating damage; This damage may take years to detect.

Our diet plays a major part in our ability to maintain proper pH levels, but acidosis can occur from other acid-forming stresses such as, emotional stress, toxic overload, and/or immune reactions and any process which deprives our body’s cells of oxygen and other nutrients. 

Scientific research continues to shed more light on how important it is to avoid acidosis and have the body’s pH level slightly alkaline, so that the body  not has the ability to repair the immune system and heal itself. When we find ourselves in acidosis we may experience:

Cardiovascular damage.
Weight gain, obesity and diabetes.
Bladder conditions.
Kidney stones.
Immune deficiency.
Acceleration of free radical damage.
Hormonal problems.
Premature aging.
Osteoporosis and joint pain.
Aching muscles and lactic acid buildup.
Low energy and chronic fatigue.
Slow digestion and elimination.
Yeast/fungal overgrowth.
Lack of energy and fatigue.
Lower body temperature.
Tendency to get infections.
Loss of drive, joy, and enthusiasm.
Depressive tendencies.
Easily stressed.
Pale complexion.
Headaches.
Inflammation of the corneas and eyelids.
Loose and painful teeth.
Inflamed, sensitive gums.
Mouth and stomach ulcers.
Cracks at the corners of the lips.
Excess stomach acid.
Gastritis.
Nails are thin and split easily.
Hair looks dull, has split ends, and falls out.
Dry skin.
Skin easily irritated.
Leg cramps and spasms.

This list could be expanded, but it gives you a good idea of just how important it is to not let your body experience bouts of acidosis.
