Healthy Diets ...
Heal Yourself... by giving your body the food it needs to heal itself... Nutritious food!
Changing your diet is no easy thing. But if you do it step by step... little changes every time... it will surely change your life.
'The wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings. Let food be your medicine.'
In order to start a healthy diet you will need to work out a strategy.
Most of us are very used to our 'bad' habits. Deciding to make a complete change to everything will most probably lead to failure. So... we need to take small steps... and start moving towards our goal.
If the goal is to lose weight... I can assure you, that by changing your diet and eating the food your body really needs... you will automatically move towards a healthy body weight.
A good place to start
A healthy diet is not counting calories. It's not deprivation. On the contrary... it's giving the body all the nutrients it needs to be energetic and full of life.
How to break bad habits. Do each step for one month before going on to the next step. To change a habit it takes 30-60 days... don't take on more than you can chew.
Living this diet is amazingly rewarding - in very short time you will see changes in energy and general well-being... just like that. No more migraines, no more bloating, weight loss... and plenty of energy!
Fresh pressed juice from raw foods provides the easiest and most effective way of providing high quality nutrition. By juicing, we can take in the nutrients and enzymes from nearly 15 pounds of produce every day, in a manner that is easy to digest and absorb.
Your body pH affects everything... Balancing the intake of Alkaline and Acid Forming Foods - balancing the body pH, is a major step toward well-being and greater health.
The Macrobiotic Diet includes cooked foods. It is based on whole grains and vegetables. It is based on the yin-yang concept. No extremes... look for balance. The macrobiotic way is to approach sickness by restoring a condition of harmony and balance.
The Gerson Therapy - developed by Dr. Max Gerson - is a natural treatment that activates the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself through an organic, vegetarian diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and natural supplements.
I'd say that the Gerson diet is a combination of the Raw Food Diet, Juicing and the Macrobiotic Diet.
It is a therapy... used specifically for recovering when 'almost' all is lost.
What is a Diet for Health?
What is the purpose of the diet?
Weight loss, heart disease, diabetes, allergies, high cholesterol, IBS, etc...?
There are so many diets out there -
It is all quite confusing...
How can we be sure of what is good for our bodies?
We live in the age of instant fix, the 'miracles' of pharmaceutical, chemical pills have changed our pace, diseases and discomforts can be instantly numbed.
Natural Remedies, such as Dieting and Fasting are, at first glance, far less attractive... we need to commit to changing our life style, treat the disease and discomfort from a holistic angle.
We need to take responsibility!
Today we often think of 'food medicine' as 'home remedies' - not to be taken too seriously...
Western medicine hardly considers the possibilities of diets - as a real possibility for cures. The dietitian will teach us to count calories for overweight... for cholesterol... fatty products are reduced... but the basics are not really considered.
We have a pill for most pains... the question is how many of these pills are we willing to take... how long we can hold up this pace... until the side effects just make us miserable.
Hospital food summarizes it all...
It is our choice to make...
Eating the right kind of foods - and abstaining from harmful foods...
Let food be thy medicine!
The diet we chose to follow needs to be balanced, feed the cells with nutrients in order to give us optimal health... and it needs to be a diet we can follow for a prolongued period of time.
A diet is a way of life... Whatever your goals, changes in your diet will make a difference, not just on a physical level, but your emotional, mental and even the spiritual level will be affected.
A healthy diet will maintain and restore a healthy body -
If we become sick we need to look at our diet... we have not given the body the necessary nutrients for it to fight off disease - any disease!
Health starts with the food we eat!

Foodmatters Documentary - Trailer
"Let they Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food." –
That’s the message from the founding father of modern medicine echoed
in the controversial new documentary film 'Food Matters' from first-
time Producer-Directors James Colqhuoun and Laurentine ten Bosch.
"With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and our
tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what’s wrong with
our malnourished bodies, it’s no wonder that modern society is getting
sicker. 'Food Matters' sets about uncovering the trillion dollar
worldwide “Sickness Industry” and giving people some scientifically
verifiable solutions for curing disease naturally."
Cancer - The Forbidden Cures
For you beautiful people looking for options outside of conventional medicine, this could save your life.
REVIEW BY DAVID BONELLO - INTERNATIONAL WELLNESS DIRECTORY
Not what it seems. When I popped in the DVD, I went to the chapters to see what they were. I felt, no, not again... the same old stuff. What a pleasant surprise. I've researched and written about these "forbidden" cures for years.
What a delight to actually see an interview with Rene Caisse. We even see a party thrown for Rene a year before she died filled with people whom she had helped with their cancers.
Harry Hoxsey shows up, and you get to see scenes from a rare movie that Hoxsey himself made in 1957 called 'You Don't Have to Die'. It is so rare, you can't even find a mention of it at the Internet Movie Database.
I loved the research they did on this film. It must have taken years to compile all the archived photos, audio, and films.
They even got Morris Fishbein on film. This is the creep who ran medicine for nearly 50 years. He destroyed many people, many companies, and the damage he did to the health care system of the time killed untold numbers of suffering humans.
However, the Hoxsey affair was his downfall. He was forced to resign after libeling Hoxsey and eventually had to admit that Hoxsey was curing cancer.
The section on Max Gerson was interesting, especially the deja vue section: they borrowed scenes from 'Dying to have Known'.
The scenes they used were the most powerful, the contraposed scenes of so-called medical experts proclaiming that no one has ever been cured of cancer at the Gerson clinic, juxtaposed with patients telling their story.
Finally, you'll see some of the latest advances in alternative therapies, including a physician who is curing cancer with baking soda even after he's lost his license to practice medicine.
For you history buffs, this is a must have.
For you people looking for options outside of conventional medicine, this could save your life.
