Research indicates that significant increases in health care costs impact everybody – including the young and otherwise fit and healthy. In fact the ever increasing costs of healthcare and, more importantly, costs of healthcare insurance are foremost in just about everybody’s mind. For far too many of us the cost of healthcare and insurance are beyond our means and costs will continue to spiral.
However, all is not lost. You can avoid getting caught in this spiraling increase by adding fundamental principles to maintain optimum health and minimizing contact with the healthcare system.
Stay well hydrated
Dehydration or water imbalance is one of the biggest precipitators and aggravators of health conditions. It directly effects blood volume. Too little blood volume presents problems for the heart, kidney, and efficient delivery of oxygen and nutrients to tissue, and waste away from tissue. If you’re well hydrated, your skin isn’t dry, your bowel movements are smooth and soft, and the veins on the back of the hands elevate when the hands are below the heart.
Avoid eating yeast
and food products with yeast. Science has documented that we are over saturated with yeast micro-organisms. Science also tells us that yeast organisms precipitate most diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, fatigue syndromes and skin problems, including psoriasis. This includes all alcoholic beverages (most are fermented by yeast) and most breads. Don’t be alarmed as not all baked goods have yeast. Biscuits, cornbread, cookies, pies, and some sourdough bread are made without yeast added.
Our biggest asset in keeping the equation balanced is rest. Rest provides us with resiliency, stamina and especially immune optimization. The average healthy person should get 6 – 8 hours of sleep daily. If you’re ill or trying to recover from an illness or injury, an additional 1 to 2 hours should be added. Rest does not mean going out to a theater or a health spa to exercise. In fact, exercise is counterproductive to resting. According to a British study conducted worldwide, 97% of respondents rated rest as the #1 aid to regeneration and repair. Scientifically, regeneration occurs in an environment that is cycling at a very slow rate of 4 – 6 hertz per second. Whereas, tremendously more hertz are generated when you engage in exercise.
Eat high quality food
and avoid genetically modified and genetically engineered foods There are many unknowns about this technology, but it is known that foods produced using these two types of technology contain fungal-type pathogens. One known pathogen is fusarium, which causes disease in humans and animals – and can cause infertility in both. Limit the amounts and be wary of consuming animal products, especially non-organic and farm-raised.
Practice good hygiene
It’s well known that good hygiene (washing your hands and body, cleaning oral and nasal passages) promotes a positive attitude and good health. In addition to showering, you can include bathing, steam baths or saunas to enhance the health benefits.
Use food-based nutrients
to help sustain the body’s immune system. You can tell if a nutrient is food-based if there are no parenthesis behind its name. The FDA requires that all artificial vitamins have their source identified in the parenthesis. For example, if the name Vitamin C is followed by (ascorbic acid) on the bottle it is NOT food based.
Take minerals to regenerate, rebuild and repair all tissues
Normally we would get our minerals from food, but according to a U.S. government land survey the farm and graze land of mainland America has been devoid of minerals since the 1940s due to over-farming practices. The best mineral supplements are those that have been leached from a known source – such as dissolving rocks or egg shells, concentrated from sea water or petrified from a humid deposit.
and overly processed food items, such as canola oil, soy products, sugar substitutes, food coloring, natural flavoring, malted barley extract. These non and overly processed foods add a gargantuan load on the body’s immune system by triggering excessive immune responses and accumulating unwanted debris. These types of debris are scientifically known as inclusions. Inclusions often show signs of their presence in the body, such as dark or swollen areas and cysts.
Take herbal supplements
in whatever form that’s worthy and valuable to you. Herbs are a known source for conveying bio-energy beneficial to our body Herbs contain phytonutrients which are easily converted by the body to make its own autonomous compounds.
Include a non-invasive healthcare practitioner in your regimen of health – such as a chiropractor, body worker, acupuncturist or others. Use these practitioners in conjunction with your medical doctor to have a chance at a normal recovery when you get ill.
