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

Excerpts from The Wheatgrass Book by Ann Wigmore

More great information from the wheatgrass place, Creative Health Institute…

WHEATGRASS JUICE…

Increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.

Stimulates the thyroid gland, correcting obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints.

Restores alkalinity to the blood. The juice’s abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over-acidity in the blood. It can be used to relieve many internal pains, and has been used successfully to treat peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, constipation, diarrhea, and other complaints of the gastrointestinal tract.

Is a powerful detoxifier, and liver and blood protector. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine. It strengthens our cells, detoxifies the liver and bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants.

Fights tumors and neutralizes toxins. Recent studies show that wheatgrass juice has a powerful ability to fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs that also inhibit cell-destroying agents. The many active compounds found in grass juice cleanse the blood and neutralize and digest toxins in our cells.

Contains beneficial enzymes. Whether you have a cut finger you want to heal or you desire to lose five pounds…enzymes must do the actual work. The life and abilities of the enzymes found naturally in our bodies can be extended if we help them from the outside by adding exogenous enzymes, like the ones found in wheatgrass juice. Don’t cook it. We can only get the benefits of the many enzymes found in grass by eating it uncooked. Cooking destroys 100 percent of the enzymes in food.

Has remarkable similarity to our own blood. The second important nutritional aspect of chlorophyll is its remarkable similarity to hemoglobin, the compound that carries oxygen in the blood. Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara, president of the Hagiwara Institute of Health in Japan, is a leading advocate for the use of grass as food and medicine. He reasons that since chlorophyll is soluble in fat particles, and fat particles are absorbed directly into the blood via the lymphatic system, that chlorophyll can also be absorbed in this way. In other words, when the “blood” of plants is absorbed in humans it is transformed into human blood, which transports nutrients to every cell of the body.

When used as a rectal implant, reverses damage from inside the lower bowel. An implant is a small amount of juice held in the lower bowel for about 20 minutes. In the case of illness, wheatgrass implants stimulate a rapid cleansing of the lower bowel and draw out accumulations of debris.

Externally applied to the skin can help eliminate itching almost immediately.

Will soothe sunburned skin and act as a disinfectant. Rubbed into the scalp before a shampoo, it will help mend damaged hair and alleviate itchy, scaly, scalp conditions.

Is soothing and healing for cuts, burns, scrapes, rashes, poison ivy, athlete’s foot, insect bites, boils, sores, open ulcers, tumors, and so on. Use as a poultice and replace every two to four hours.

Works as a sleep aide. Merely place a tray of living wheatgrass near the head of your bed. It will enhance the oxygen in the air and generate healthful negative ions to help you sleep more soundly.

Enhances your bath. Add some to your bath water and settle in for a nice, long soak.

Sweetens the breath and firms up and tightens gums. Just gargle with the juice.

Neutralizes toxic substances like cadmium, nicotine, strontium, mercury, and polyvinyl chloride.

Offers the benefits of a liquid oxygen transfusion since the juice contains liquid oxygen. Oxygen is vital to many body processes: it stimulates digestion (the oxidation of food), promotes clearer thinking (the brain utilizes 25% of the body’s oxygen supply), and protects the blood against anaerobic bacteria. Cancer cells cannot exist in the presence of oxygen.

Turns gray hair to its natural color again and greatly increases energy levels when consumed daily.

Is a beauty treatment that slows down the aging process when the juice is consumed. Wheatgrass will cleanse your blood and help rejuvenate aging cells, slowing the aging process way down, making you feel more alive right away. It will help tighten loose and sagging skin.

Lessens the effects of radiation. One enzyme found in wheatgrass, SOD, lessens the effects of radiation and acts as an anti-inflammatory compound that may prevent cellular damage following heart attacks or exposure to irritants.

Restores fertility and promotes youthfulness.

Can double your red blood cell count just by soaking in it. Renowned nutritionist Dr. Bernard Jensen found that no other blood builders are superior to green juices and wheatgrass. In his book Health Magic Through Chlorophyll from Living Plant Life he mentions several cases where he was able to double the red blood cell count in a matter of days merely by having patients soak in a chlorophyll-water bath. Blood building results occur even more rapidly when patients drink green juices and wheatgrass regularly.

Our deepest thanks to Dr. Ann Wigmore and all of those who have given so much to help us renew our health.

Wishing everyone a blessed day,

Reversing Diabetes Is Possible – We See It Happen Every Week At Creative Health Institute

By Val Willingham, CNN
January 28, 2011 10:02 a.m. EST
"It was a big wake-up call, that what I was doing and my current weight were not OK," Jonathan Legg said.
“It was a big wake-up call, that what I was doing and my current weight were not OK,” Jonathan Legg said.
STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Jonathan Legg began to exercise every day, changed diet to reverse diabetes
  • Diabetes is caused when there is too much glucose or sugar in the body
  • Type 1 diabetes was once known as juvenile diabetes; it’s usually diagnosed in children

For more information on diabetes watch this weekend’s special edition of “SGMD“: “Diabetes 20/20,” Saturday-Sunday, 7:30 a.m. ET

Bethesda, Maryland (CNN) — When Jonathan Legg of Bethesda, Maryland, got a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes at 39, he was shocked.

“I had always been pretty active,” said Legg. “But it was a big wake-up call, that what I was doing and my current weight were not OK.”

That was two years ago. Since that time, the Morgan Stanley executive decided to make some changes and reverse his diabetes. Although his doctor recommended he go on medication to control his illness, Legg took a different approach. Instead of meds, he began to exercise every day and changed his diet, cutting out alcohol, fatty foods and watching his carbs.

Do you have diabetes? How well are you managing it?

“I wanted to be able to know the changes I was making were making a difference, and it wasn’t the drug,” said Legg.

According to new statistics just out from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 25.8 million people, or 8.3% of the U.S. population, are affected by either type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Most, like Legg, have type 2 diabetes, which in many people develops later in life. Caused primarily by genetic makeup, a sedentary lifestyle and poor eating habits, type 2 diabetes can be reversed in some cases. By making changes to their lives such as adding exercise and improving their diets, many type 2 diabetics can drop their glucose or sugar numbers back to the normal range, reversing their condition.

Diabetes type-2 can be reversed
 
“We have seen numerous people reverse their condition,” says Dr. Michelle Magee, director of the MedStar Diabetes Institute in Washington. “But it takes a real dedication for the rest of their lives,” she notes.

So why do exercise and diet help reverse diabetes? To answer that question, we first need to know why people get diabetes in the first place.

Diabetes is caused when there is too much glucose or sugar in the body. We get sugar from the things we eat. The body is designed to process sugar so it can enter our cells and provide energy. But glucose can’t enter our cells without insulin, which is a hormone produced by the pancreas.

If you have diabetes, your body isn’t making any or is not making enough insulin — or it can’t properly use the insulin it is producing. As a result, too much sugar stays in the blood. If this occurs for a long time, it can lead to serious problems.

Tips for dealing with diabetes

Type 1 diabetes was once known as juvenile diabetes because it’s usually diagnosed in children and young adults. About 5% to 10% of all people with diabetes have this type, which is not reversible because the person’s pancreas is not producing insulin at all.

The remainder have type 2 diabetes. For these people, their body can no longer process insulin correctly. Although genetics plays a part, obesity is a major reason people develop type 2 diabetes.

“We know that excess body weight adversely affects every organ system in the body,” says Dr. Gary Foster, director of Temple University’s Center for Obesity Research and Education in Philadelphia. “So it shouldn’t be surprising that as obesity increases, as it has over the past 30 years, that medical conditions, especially conditions like type 2 diabetes, will also increase.”

People who carry excess weight, especially in their midsection, are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes because the fat in their tissues causes an imbalance of insulin in the body. The condition is called insulin resistance. If they can eliminate that fat by exercising and limiting carbohydrates and alcohol, then many can drop their glucose levels. And for some, they can drop them back into the normal range.

This is also true for people who are prediabetic. According to the CDC, 79 million Americans are prediabetic, which means their glucose readings fall between 100 and 125 while fasting. According to the American Diabetes Association, normal glucose readings are 100 and below when a person has not eaten anything. Numbers above 125 while fasting are considered to be in the diabetic range. So when you’re prediabetic, it’s easier to turn those numbers around. And that’s important, because once you become a diabetic, even if you drop your numbers, you will always be classified as a diabetic, making it difficult to acquire good insurance.

“Once you fall into that glucose range, you are considered at high risk for developing the condition again,” says Magee.

“That’s why we are working on a program right now that goes into the community and reaches those who are at risk of being prediabetic or diabetic,” Magee said. “The results have been so positive, the CDC is looking at the program as a possible protocol for other hospitals to follow.”

As for Jonathan Legg, his numbers are no longer in the diabetic range. He’s lost 40 pounds and watches everything he eats.

“I educated myself, I read the labels,” said Legg. “I enjoy what I eat. I met with nutritionists, and they helped me build a game plan.”

His physician, Dr. Lucy McBride says it’s more than just diet; it’s also the types of foods that Legg eats.

“He cut out significant amounts of sugar and carbs in his diet, really changed how he ate,” says McBride. “He’s increased fiber, increased protein, cut back on alcohol, which is really sugar.”

But McBride notes Legg needs to be tenacious.

“I told him, encouraged as I was, and proud and pleased [but] he’s got to keep up those lifestyle habits for things to stay in the right direction,” McBride said. “Without exercise, without diet and without weight control, the diabetes will come back. It’s something he will need to manage his whole life.”

That’s something Legg says he would rather do than live as a diabetic.

15 Food Combining Guidelines

Food Combining Guidelines

  1. Avoid eating carbohydrates, starches, sugar or sweet fruits with acid fruits.  Too many times we mix: (strawberries and bananas) (cereal with strawberries) (pineapple upside down cake).
  2. Avoid eating concentrated proteins with concentrated carbohydrates.  (meat and potatoes) 
  3. Do not consume two concentrated proteins at the same meal. (meat and cheese*) (nuts and cheese) (shrimp and steak) (avocado and nuts) 
  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.

A Brief History Of Wheatgrass

“Wheatgrass juice is the nectar of rejuvenation, the plasma of youth, the blood of all life. The elements that are missing in our body’s cells – especially enzymes, vitamins, hormones, and nucleic acids can be obtained through this daily green sunlight transfusion”. Viktoras Kulvinskas, Author of Survival into the Twenty First Century

Throughout the history of wheatgrass, it has been recognized for its beneficial health effects.  Mankind has always known that livestock showed improved health and vigor when they feed on the young grasses of early spring.  Herdsmen have moved their livestock across every continent in search of the best grass for the their animals.

Today, grass is the world’s most widespread form of vegetation. There are over 9,000 species of grass found across the planet, covering more than 25% of all earths land mass. You will find grass wherever there is sun, water and soil. Grass has truly become recognized as the staff of life with four of the world’s top five crops being grains/grasses.

The use of wheatgrass can be traced back more than six thousand years, to ancient early Mesopotamian and Egyptian civilizations.

Five thousand years ago, Egyptians were using wheatgrass for health purposes. The Priests, Pharaohs and powerful members of ancient Egyptian society used wheatgrass on a regular basis, believing that it improved their health.

Nebuchadnezzar, king of the Babylonian Empire, and builder of the Hanging Gardens reigned  from 605 BC – 562 BC.,  reportedly restricted his diet to grasses and attributed the health benefits of this magnificent chlorophyll rich plant to the improvement of his physical and mental health.

Almost two thousand years ago, during the first century A.D., we find a Jewish sect known as the Essene’s using wheatgrass as a healing food.  From their holy book The Gospel of Peace, translated by Edmund Bordeaux Szekely, we read:

We may eat also of the tender blades of grass that the strength of the Earthly Mother may enter into us. But chew well the blades, for the Son of Man has teeth unlike those of beasts, and only when we chew well the blades of grass can the Angel of Water enter our blood and give us strength. Eat, then, Sons of Light, of this most perfect herb from the table of our Earthly Mother, that your days may be long upon the earth, for such finds favor in the eyes of God.”

Welcome to Wheatgrass Science in The 20th Century

In 1915 Dr. Richard Willstätter’s pioneering work on natural products; especially chlorophyll was honored with the 1915 Nobel Prize in chemistry. His founding of  the healthful link between the chlorophyll in plants and the hemoglobin in our blood, was the start of  scientific research into how close the composition of  chlorophyll and human blood are. He showed that chlorophyll molecules bonded in in a very similar way as  the iron molecule in hemoglobin.

Close to the time of  Dr. Willstätter’s work and discover of the wonder of chlorphyll,  in the laboratory, war had broken out across Europe and in the small county of Lithuania, a young girl named Ann Wigmore watched as her grandmother treated soldiers with it and later used wheatgrass to treat her own colon disease.

In the late 1920’s and early 1930’s scientists including Charles Francis Schnabel were studying grasses and green leafy vegetables and unlocking the nutritional mysteries. They tested all types of vegetable and meat based feeds and found that animals could did not only survive on grass but thrived on it, but, in contrast, their health failed when they were fed other healthy vegetables, including green leafy vegetables.

In 1931 Charles Francis Schnabel an American school teacher and agricultural chemist who is kindly referred to as the “father of wheatgrass” discovered  that wheat and barley grasses reached their nutritional peak at or just prior to the commencement of the jointing stage. Being an agricultural chemist, the focus of his studies were based in developing feeds for livestock which would  help them recover more quickly from sickness, grow faster and increase fertility. His research proved to be the the most indepth study of its time proving the nutritional value of grasses and how the nutritonal values changed through different stages of the plant’s life.

Struck by the power of wheatgrass, Charles Schnabel started promoting his discoveries to feed mills, chemists and the food industry. Two large corporations that are still with us today (Quaker Oats and American Dairies) invested millions of dollars into funding further research.  Joined by others, such as biochemist George Kohler, his passion inspired a body of scientific research and much of his research finding served as the basis of Dr. Ann Wigmores devleopment of wheatgrass therapy.

The “Wheatgrass Juice Factor”

In the mid 1930s, at the University of Wisconsin, Dr. George Kohler and his colleagues were studying the differences in the nutritional value of cow’s milk produced at different seasons of the year. Although they thrived on summer milk, experimental rats and guinea pigs failed to grow and eventually became sick and died when fed winter milk. The higher nutritional value of the summer milk was found to be due to the grasses eaten by the cows in the spring and summer. Thus began research on the “Grass Juice Factor”, a water soluble extract of grass juice which was responsible for this growth effect.

Most of the individual vitamins that we know about today, were identified during the 1930s by scientists working to identify all the nutritional factors necessary for growth and reproduction in humans and domestic animals.

Scientist were amazed to find that when they added green chlorophyll rich foods to the diets of test animals, the growth and health effects of cereal grass and the “Grass Juice Factor” were far our stripping any other type of supplementation. By the late 1930s, dehydrated and dried cereal grasses were available in several forms for use as a human and animal food supplements.

After many years of research and testing, the scientists at the  University of Wisconsin determine the highest levels of  the  “Grass Juice Factor”, was found in cereal grass (wheatgrass), young white clover, peas, and cabbage.

At the University of California at Berkeley, Dr. Mott Cannon and his colleagues found that guinea pigs failed rapidly when fed a stock ration plus high levels of all the then-known nutrients. When the researchers added standard food supplements such as liver extracts, wheat germ, and brewer’s yeast to the animals’ diets, the guinea pigs remained sick and often died. Addition of grass or grass juice brought about dramatic recovery and restimulated growth in these animals.

In 1935, Danish researchers discovered vitamin K, the “koagulation vitamin”. Because this nutrient was difficult to isolate in large quantities, cereal grasses were used in lieu of purified vitamin K—both for research and for medical therapy.

In 1938 Folic acid was identified, being named after the green leaves, or foliage, which proved to be its richest source. Scientists knew they were on to something as they observed the health and growth benefits that the known vitamins and minerals in the  cereal grasses provided.  Other benefits, however, could not be attributed to known nutrients.

In the early 1940’s, Dr. Charles Kettering (former chairman of the board of General Motors) donated money for the study of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll was studied intensively by medical doctors (there are currently over 40 articles written up in medical journals about the healing effects of chlorophyll.) These medical doctors found that chlorophyll was a great healer.

In 1940, in the American Journal of Surgery,  Benjamin Cruskin, M.D., recommends chlorophyll for its antiseptic benefits. The article suggests the following clinical uses for chlorophyll:

“To clear up foul-smelling odours, neutralize strep infections, heal wounds, hasten skin grafting, cure chronic sinusitis, overcome ear inflammation and infections, reduce varicose veins and heal leg ulcers, eliminate impetigo and other scabby eruptions, heal rectal sores, successfully treat inflammation of the uterine cervix, get rid of parasitic vaginal infections, reduce typhoid fever, and cure advanced pyorrhea in many cases”.

Through the 1940s and 1950s, scientist continued to research the potential of cereal grasses and their effect on humans and animals. Expanded research led to their finding that cereal grass was shown to contain factors which support the growth of lactobacilli and other beneficial intestinal bacteria, block the development of scurvy, stop the formation of histamine induced and peptic ulcers.

Other Unidentified Health Factors in Cereal Grasses

By 1950, all the nutrients now considered essential to the human diet (with the exception of selenium) had been identified. But researchers continued to describe green food “factors” which could not be correlated with any known nutrient.

I see a world without sickness…a world in complete harmony and in perfect physical, mental, and spiritual balance by following nature’s laws of cause and effect. – Ann Wigmore

In the late 1950’s early 1960’s Ann Wigmore “re-discovered” wheatgrass and was able to cure her own ‘untreatable’ colon cancer. She also had been a terrible accident which had crushed her legs, gangrene set in and the doctors wanted to amputate her legs. Ann had made friends with Dr. Earp Thomas, who believed that wheatgrass was one of the most powerful healing foods known to man. Dr. Thomas found that an ounce of wheatgrass in a gallon of fluoridated water would turn the fluorine into harmless calcium-phosphate-fluoride compound. Used in wash water it adds softness to the face and hands. It stops bleeding, eases itching, and helps in wound healing . Dr. Thomas further discovered that fruits and vegetables contaminated by sprays were thoroughly cleaned and the negative food transformed by wash water with a wisp of wheatgrass placed in the water.

As Ann spent untold hours with her mentor, Dr. Thomas and as she learned more and more about the medicinal effects of grass, she decided to heal herself of her disease and her injuries. She began drinking fresh wheatgrass and eating natural raw living foods. She shared wheatgrass with several sick friends and along with her, each recovered from their sickness.

Drinking wheatgrass should not be considered a one-stop cure all. Although wheatgrass has helped hundreds of thousands of people recover from serious illness, it is neither a drug nor a magic bullet. Here at Creative Health Institute, (CHI) wheatgrass  is grown on the premises and serves as one of our nutritional cornerstones in our full body detoxification and rebuilding health process.  We believe that when our guests take in substantial quanities of wheatgrass along with raw living foods and take the time address their lifestyle physically, spiritually and  their mental and emotional state they can create an immune system that will not be as greatly affected by illness We invite you to join us on the wonderful journey of health and happiness.

Love & blessings,

Bobby

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.

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.

Fibromyalgia Raw Living Food Diet Tips

  • Avoid eating late in the evening.
  • Eat your evening meal not later than 6 p.m., and avoid eating anything else after that.
  • Avoid eating sweet fruit in the evening. Your evening meal should be composed of vegetables with either: avocado, olives, nuts or seeds. Eating fruit in the evening will disturb sleep, due to their (natural) sugar content.
  • Especially avoid eating acid fruits in the evening, such as oranges or pineapple. • Avoid eating fat during the day. This works for a lot of people.
  • The best time to eat fat is in the evening. During the day, prefer fruit and green vegetables for optimum digestion and energy.
  • Don’t feed your false appetite. We have to differentiate between hunger and appetite. Hunger is true physiological need, expressed by a strong desire for food. Appetite is false hunger, is very capricious, very demanding, and is never fully satisfied.
  • Exercise to create true hunger. Vigorous exercise is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle. By exercising vigorously, we create true demand for food and prepare thus the ground for superior assimilation, upon which radiant health depends. 
  • Limit the quantity of fat in your diet. Many raw-foodists go overboard on raw fat. Avocados, oils, olives, nuts and seeds should be a small part of your diet, as they can be a major cause of fatigue and lack of energy I recommend limiting fat consumption to as little as 10% of your calories. In a 2000-calorie diet, this would mean only 22gm of fat (since 1gm of fat contains 9 calories) per day. To put it in perspective, half a medium avocado contains that amount. 
  • Eat only one type of fat per meal. Here are the different concentrated, fatty foods in the raw diet: Avocados, Oils (Olive, hemp, flax, etc.), Olives, Nuts (Almonds, pistachios, pecans, etc.), Seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, etc.)
  • These foods are all very satisfying, but also difficult to digest. That is why if you mix them with each other you will experience digestive difficulties and feeling tired. Eating only one type at a meal, is a good rule to follow. Have your salad plain or with a non fat dressing. 
  • Eat simple foods. The raw food diet is simple unprocessed, unadulterated, whole, in its natural state. Eating foods that are simply uncooked is a step in that direction. The next step is to start eating mostly whole foods, simple fruits and vegetables, It’s perfectly alright to enjoy some gourmet raw food cuisine once in a while, but try not to make a habit out of it. Instead, go in the direction of simplicity. You will find that you will enjoy your food much more, finally tasting the subtle but complex flavors of natural foods. • Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables. Eating a variety of fruits and vegetables doesn’t mean eating many types of food in one meal, and not even in one day. It means varying your food choices over the course of the seasons. By varying your diet, you will not only make sure you get a full spectrum of nutrients, but also will avoid the harmful effects of making one food the center of your diet, which could have a few downsides you are not even aware of. It is also quite natural to eat with the seasons. Why eat melons in the winter? Melons are a summer food. In the winter, we eat apples, oranges, carrots, etc. So vary your diet and eat mostly what’s in season, without making a religion out of it. 
  • Get support. It’s almost impossible to do this on your own. We need to be able to share our experiences with others. If you don’t know any other raw-foodist, found a support group or start your own potlucks. You will be surprised to know how many people are interested in the raw-food diet once you start your own potlucks. There are hundreds of people in most cities that are just waiting to meet other raw-foodists and share their experiences with them.
  • Avoid eating cold fruits and vegetables during the winter. Why freeze in the winter when you don’t have to? To avoid getting cold, submerge your fruits and vegetables in hot water for a few minutes before consuming them. And while we’re at it, drinking hot water is not forbidden on a raw-food diet. In fact, it will help you a lot to maintain your internal heat without resorting to cooked foods or stimulating hot baths and showers.

Fibromyalgia Herbal Remedies

  1. A combination of slippery elm, burdock, sheep sorrel and Turkish rhubarb was shown good results in improving fibromyalgia.
  2. Black walnut aid in removing parasites.
  3. Calendula taken orally in high doses has a positive effect in reversing symptoms of fibromyalgia.
  4. Cayenne, echinacea, goldenseal, astralagus, myrrh and chaparral boost the immune system and improve circulation. Combine them as a tea or tincture, It may be helpful to mix it with juice for better taste. 
  5. Dandelion reduces frequency and intensity of pain and strengthens the connective tissue. Take 1 tbsp. juice or 1 cup tea twice daily for four to six weeks.
  6. Devil’s claw root is a natural anti- inflammatory used to treat rheumatic disorders. Take one 400 mg devil’s claw root tablet daily. 
  7. Dong quai is good for fleeting muscle and joint pains, especially if they are worse in damp conditions. Take 1 capsule daily. For women only.
  8. Ginger Tea. Ginger is a good alternative to aspirin to relieve minor aches and pains. Steep 1 teaspoon of the grated root in 8 ounces of hot water for 10 minutes. Strain. Add honey for taste, if you like. Alternatively, take 1,000 to 2,000 milligrams of powdered ginger a day in capsule form with food.
  9. Garlic is useful for detoxification and to enhance immune system function. Take 5,000 mcg of standardized allicin three times daily. Kyolic, aged garlic is preferred. 
  10. Ginkgo biloba improves circulation and brain function. 
  11. Passion flower, valerian and hops teas have sedating and muscle- relaxant properties. 
  12. Licorice root acts in the body like cortisone, but without the harmful side-effects. 
  13. Milk thistle extract, artichoke, turmeric and dandelion supports liver function. 
  14. Skullcap and valerian root improve sleep. 
  15. Siberian ginseng is an energizing herb that can help resolve the fatigue associated with fibromyalgia. Choose a standardized extract containing 0.5 percent eleutheroside E and take 100 milligrams twice daily, one-half hour before breakfast and lunch. After two weeks, you can gradually increase the dosage as needed. After six weeks, take one week off, then take the herb for another six weeks.
  16. St. John’s wort is a natural antidepressant and influences the adrenal gland hormones to help relieve stress. St. John’s wort affects nerves and is effective for sharp, shooting nerve pains. It also has antiviral properties. (Caution: Do not take if you are taking conventional antidepressants.) Choose a standardized extract containing 0.3 percent hypericin and take 300 milligrams three times daily
  17. . Teas brewed from burdock root, dandelion, and red clover promote healing by cleansing the bloodstream and enhancing immune function. Combine or alternate these herbal teas, and drink 4 to 6 cups daily. 
  18. Pine-bark and grape-seed extracts are natural anti-inflammatories that help to ease pain. Take 50 milligrams of either two to three times daily. 
  19. Turmeric helps to reduce pain and inflammation. Take 400 to 500 milligrams three times daily.
  20. Willow bark has anti-inflammatory properties and works as a painkiller.

Food Combining – A Letter To A Friend

Dear Cha Cha,

I really hate to think that I have to worry about every morsel I put in my mouth, but there are some basic rules and I always try to adhere to, as best possible. I am not of the school that improperly combined raw food creates alcohol in the colon. I say eat raw, go to the bathroom 3 times a day and do enemas often, lol.

Good Combinations:

  1. Acid Fruits AND Sub-Acid Fruits.
  2. Sub-Acid Fruits AND Sweet Fruits.
  3. Starches AND Vegetables & Greens.
  4. Vegetables & Greens AND Proteins.

Bad Combinations:

  1. Try to not eat carbohydrate foods and acid foods at the same meal.
  2. Try to not eat a concentrated protein and a concentrated carbohydrate at the same meal.
  3. Never consume two concentrated proteins at the same meal.
  4. Do not consume fats with proteins.
  5. Do not eat acid fruits with proteins.
  6. Do not consume starches and sugars together.
  7. Eat but one concentrated starch at a meal.
  8. Do not consume melons with any other foods.
  9. Drink ALL juices alone.
  10. Fresh fruit should be eaten alone or on an empty stomach. It’s best to only combine fruits from their own category.
  11. Try to not have fats with fats. (Example – nuts with avocados)

( I DO NOT AGREE WITH ALL OF THESE) 

Some categories can be combined and still digest well while others you may want to avoid. I lean more to Matt Monarch’s  belief  that when we eat raw food dishes in moderation we do not have to deal with paying such close attention to strict food combining and examining every morsel we put in our mouths. I know I should not combine bananas with acid fruits like pineapple or oranges, but I just can’t resist, lol.

I find its usually the people who are not 100% raw who are caught up with food combining. Stay logical and stay 100% raw and let those who wish to focus on food combing do so. I will put our program, which is healing and delicious against anyone else’s in the world!

Keep in mind I am not saying throw out food combining, what I really am saying is I would rather have a little gas and be able to love what I am eating, lol.

Well you asked for it so here you go.

P.S.

By the way I never take advise from anyone who is not 100% raw. They only know how bad they feel because they mix raw with cooked. Usually they cannot even begin to understand this amazing body we possess.

RAW FOREVER,

Chico

Raw Chocolate News… Cornell University Scientists Discovered Raw Cacao/Chocolate Powder Has Nearly Twice The Antioxidants Of Red Wine, And Up To Three Times The Antioxidants In Green Tea

Researchers, led by Chang Y. Lee, chairman of the Department of Food Science and Technology at Cornell  state “the reason that raw cacao/cocoa leads the other drinks is its high content of antioxidant compounds called phenolic phytochemicals, or flavonoids”.

Scientists have known for years that raw chocolate/cacao contains massive amounts of antioxidants, in fact there is no common food with a higher antioxidant rating. In fact recent research shows that the antioxidants found in raw cacao have unmatched stability and are easy to assimilate. Of all known foods, raw cacao is also the ONLY food which does NOT lose its Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity (ORAC) over significant periods of time, making raw cacao/chocolate both the most POTENT and  STABLE source of antioxidants found in any natural food.

According to research cited in The New York Times,” fresh raw cocoa beans are super-rich in the type of flavonoid called flavanols which are very strong antioxidants. Cocoa/cacao beans contain 10,000 milligrams (10 grams) of flavanol antioxidants per 100 grams – or an amazing 10% antioxidant concentration level”!

Some of the most active substances in raw cacao/chocolate are:

  • Anandamide (a neurotransmitter known as “the bliss chemical”)
  • Arginine (nature’s aphrodisiac)
  • Dopamine (a neurotransmitter which bring about clarity)
  • Epicatechins (antioxidants)
  • Flavanols ( catechin,epicatechin, epigallocatechinMagnesium (for healthy heart function)
  • Histamine
  • Phenylethylamine (PEA) (controls the ability to focus attention and stay alert)
  • Polyphenols (antioxidants)
  • Salsolinol
  • Serotonin (anti-stress neurotransmitter)
  • Tryptophan (anti-depressant amino acid)

Tomorrow we will go over the vitamins and minerals found in the super food of super foods. Make everyday more than awesome, make it rawsome!

Researchers Blame The Standard American Diet!

Diabetes is now at epidemic proportions in the US and it is getting worse every year. Most researchers blame the Standard American Diet (SAD) and a lack of exercise for this disease and believe the only way to stop this monster from terrorizing humanity is to re-educate and change the American peoples eating habits. In the past 10 years this epidemic had taken 100’s of thousands of lives and cost billions of dollars, it really is that bad and many people are ignorant of it until it is too late.
Because of the severity of this epidemic, Creative Health Institute (CHI) has stepped up and implemented a program that addresses the diabetes epidemic with our living foods diet and exercise. Together they have proven to be the critical elements in controlling this disease. We work shoulder to shoulder, almost on a weekly basis, helping our students reverse their diabetes.

By 2050, an estimated 48 million Americans will have type II diabetes as the epidemic continues unabated, according to new federal projections. We believe this epidemic can be turned around. Let your friends with diabetes know there is an alternative.
