TAKE CARE OF YOUR DIET
There are two dangers to nutrition. The first is to think too much about it. Even optimal nutrition combined with the best dietary supplements cannot completely reverse the damage done to the body by stress, disease, and toxins after years of poor nutrient deficient diets.
The second danger is far more serious. It is to think too little of it. Optimal nutrition combined with a healthy toxic free diet and dietary supplementation offers a powerful defense against the onslaught of degenerative diseases. It is the cornerstone of treatment and prevention of every ailment.
Everything is needed in a balanced amount. Copper is a mineral that is part of a protective antioxidant enzyme and keeps cholesterol, blood pressure, insulin and blood sugar in a normal range. But in excessive amounts, copper will generate damaging free radicals. Exercise is good and is most important for a healthy lifestyle. Yet too much exercise will lead to adrenal exhaustion. Everything must be appreciated as part of a balanced whole. Only by seeking to maximize a our health in all ways possible through a positive mental outlook, exercise, a nutrient dense diet, and dietary supplementation can we hope to lower the rates of blood pressure, heart disease and other degenerative diseases that will otherwise decrease the quality and length of our lives. With this in mind we recommend that you;
Eat more white meat
White meat found in chicken and fish contains less cholesterol as compared to their red meat counterparts (meats found in beef, lamb, mutton etc). As already discussed, fish contains essential fatty acids that have been found to help reduce blood cholesterol and consequently reduce high blood pressure.
Reduce your intake of salt
Salt increases blood pressure by increasing blood volume.
It is said that a brisk 30 minute walk every day is very effective in exercising the heart and reducing ones blood pressure. This is particularly important for the older generation as they cannot practice more vigorous forms of excercising.
Margarines are partially hydrogenated oils and also contribute to a buildup of bad cholesterol.
Eat foods that are as close as possible to what your ancestors ate.
Find out which are the staple foods that gave your ancestors longevity in life and eat these.
Eat plenty of cereals.
These have complex sugars (carbohydrates) and are released slowly into your blood stream as opposed to the processed foods which are rich in starch (simple sugar) which is easily converted into fat and stored if not immediately used. Cereals are high in fibre and help the body eliminate waste. It also keeps your gastrointestinal tract healthy.
