This great diet and lifestyle is amazingly healing - I lost 40 lbs, my arthritis of 40 years disappeared, my kidney disease disappeared, my high blood pressure disappeared and I no longer take any medications, I sleep like I baby now, I no longer have aches and pains of any kind, this all happened in 3 weeks with no change in exercise, I have always exercised but it was not working for me... I was heavy. And as Dr. Gerson, Dean Ornish, Dr. Campbell and others have said in many ways... there is nothing the body can’t heal with the right food... and I believe that with all my heart and soul-- I am living proof.
OK - Here we go - The Whole Foods/Plant Based Diet and Lifestyle
Water - First of all you need to drink a lot of water - at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day - I recommend at least 1/2 liter in the morning and 1/2 liter in the afternoon and more. - Drink Reverse Osmosis Water... You can buy these machines at any home repair center for very little money, it’s the best water, even kidney doctors recommend this water for their patients. This is what we drink at home, most water has lots of toxins in it, so please get this device and filter your water.
Green Juice - Drink 2 - 8 oz glasses of green alkalizing juice each day - Kale, Cabbage, Cucumbers, Swiss Chard, Turnip Greens, Beet Greens, and any other kind of green leafy veggie you can find. Alkalizing keeps inflammation away!
Chlorella - Take 3,000 mgs of Chlorella per day, you can buy this in 1,000 mg tablets - it’s a green algae that has over 60 different nutrients in it... and it will do your body good - Powerful! Chlorella gives you every essential and none essential protein that you need and everything else.
Circadian Rhythms - Get up at 6 AM - Go to be at 10 PM. You need to reset your circadian rhythms. You have two little cells that flash on and off every second in every organ of your body and especially your heart. And they know when you should be sleeping and when you should be up and awake. - If you go against this way of living it shortens your life span... listen to your body.
Meditation - First thing in the morning after going to the bathroom sit down and concentrate on your breathing - breathing in and out, if you find a thought coming into your head, say to yourself “I will get to that later and go back to your breathing”. Do this for 30 Minutes, this gives the mind/body a rest. Even during sleep your mind is not resting it’s dreaming and working things out. Meditation turns off the mind for a little while, and meditation takes practice and surrender to the process. Even Dr. Dean Ornish recommends Meditation, and Meditation has nothing to do with Religion, it’s about healing. We now know that people who meditate have good genes expressed and bad genes are shut off and not expressed- Wow - Amazing Stuff! Meditate for 30 minutes first thing in the Morning and in the evening for 30 Minutes. - It will do your body good.
Breakfast - Have breakfast in the morning before 8AM with 1 1/2 cups of fruit - and 1/2 cup of almond milk or nut milk of any kind... and 1/2 cup of raw flattened oatmeal - rolled oats. Good old old fashioned oats, but don't cook it - use it raw and use honey or agave nectar or some other good sweetener - no chemicals.
Use any kind of fruit you want - papaya, apples, mangos, berries, strawberries, whatever makes your heart sing - all raw, the more different colors you eat the better.
Lunch at Noon - Have a green salad for lunch, with lots of veggies, all raw. Cooked food is seen by the body as an invader so you want to eat at least 75% raw food - It’s healing.
Have lots of different colored foods in your salad such as: red, yellow, green, purple, all the colors of the rainbow in your beautiful salad, it’s healing. Colored veggies are full of antioxidants that are healing.
Drink Green Tea - Drink 3 small cups of green tea a day - it’s full of polyphenols that are super healing.
Snacks - In between eat carrot sticks, any other veggie, and fruit of any kind as snacks - eat 4 snacks a day at 10AM, 2PM, 4PM, and 7PM. That’s 1/2 cup of any of fruit or veggie.
Dinner - Have dinner at 5 or 6 PM - Dinner is a soup that you can make at home and it’s very healing. Make a soup of broccoli, cabbage, kale, swiss chard, turnip greens, been greens, and any other green that you like and add spices, no salt or very little salt, and use low sodium veggie stock.
Also add 4 cups of beans of your choice, such as pink beans, garbanzos, lentils, all of the beans are great. Don't use canned foods, cook the beans yourself, canned foods are toxic with lots of chemicals in linings of the cans. You can eat as much of this soup as you like in the evening, within reason, up to 3 or 4 cups.
Once a Week Treat - If you want something sweet once in a while have some Sorbet. Take frozen bananas and any other kind of fruit and blend them in a powerful blender... and you have a great sorbet. You can add the sweetener of choice if you like, see above.
Remove - Remove the following from your life.
No meat, no chicken, no fish, no seafood, no eggs, no cheese, no milk, no added oils, no canned foods, no artificial flavors, no artificial sweeteners, no artificial anything, no chemicals of any kind, and if you don't know what it is don't eat it.
No alcohol, no highly spiced food, and use very little salt, no fast food, no processed food, if in doubt don't eat it, chemicals are not good for the body. No wheat, no bread, no barley, no spelt, no rye - all of these are highly inflammatory. No GMO foods - all of these are highly inflammatory.
Organic - Eat organic if at all possible - that is the best.
Protein - If you want protein eat Organic Tofu, Beans, Nuts, Seeds, all organic. You only need 5 or 6 % protein and that is exactly what you get on this way of eating.
Watch - Watch the movies "Forks Over Knives" and "Food Matters" - you will find them on the internet and Netflix. Also watch the movie "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" - very good. Also watch the movies "Beautiful Truth" and "The Gerson Miracle" all of these movies have a lot to say about natural health and healing.
Exercise Every Day - walk - work up to 5 miles a day - if it’s hot outside... walk in a mall where it’s cool. Or swim - work up to 5 miles swimming, or you could bike ride or any other exercise that gets your heart pumping fast. You do have the time, you just have to make time and schedule exercise into your life everyday.
Have Fun - Get out and have fun, have a life with friends.... that’s important for good mood and mental clarity.
Garden - Start planting a garden, you need organic veggies, and working in a garden is very healing and healthy both for the mind and the body, people who garden live longer lives.
Community Garden - Start a community garden so everyone in the area can heal... that would be a great project.
Thinking - Think positive thoughts, the mind/body is one, and science has proven this now - it’s a fact that what you think changes your body.
Laugh - Laughter is very healing and science has proven this too.
Forgive - Forgive, forget, and let go... that’s important! If you hold resentments and anger inside it hurts your body with high blood pressure, cancer, and more... science has proven this too.
