An indication of the inherent vitality of the body is the speed of wound healing or bone mending, and possibly hair and nail growth.Find out by reading, listening, meditating and experimenting what is most appropriate for your own needs. Then start a determinedhealing program using careful self-observation. We need to realize that we can choose to a considerable degree how healthy we want tobe and how long we want to live in good health or, alternatively, which diseases we are willing to accept for the comfort of satisfying our present taste preferences, and maintaining potentially harmful living habits.Eventually with better genetic stock and improved living conditions we should be able to live an active and enjoyable life until the age of about 120 years and then quietly withdraw from the body. This is the presently unknown 'natural death'. For most of us who have seriousinherited weaknesses and misused our body for many decades this may not yet be achievable. Nevertheless, better health is possiblefor almost everyone. The key to success is in your mind!
The Health-Improvement Program
Real health improvement requires the reversal of the factors that cause our health degeneration. We need to focus on natural living -good nutrition, proper breathing, sufficient physical activity, improved emotional and mental attitudes - as well as specific procedures,uppermost of which is cleansing, the purification of body and mind. A fundamental aim of all healing is to provide the body with more vitality. True healing is always a holistic process, involving all levels of the personality - physical, bio-energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual. A health improvement program may include the following steps.
1. Improve your nutrition:
Maximise unprocessed and raw food, and minimise chemicalised, refined and problem food - see FoodGroups and Diets; alkalise the body; use food suitable for your body type and condition, and pay attention to food combining - see
General Diet Rules; discover and break addictions and allergies; use suitable supplements.
Nutrition was the main tool with which I helped patients overcome a wide range of diseases claimed to be medically incurable. Unnaturalnutrition is one of the main causes of our diseases, while natural nutrition is an equally powerful agent in curing these diseases andrejuvenating our body.Diet rules are designed to guide us towards healthier eating habits. There are different schools of nutrition, which do not always agree onthe same principles and sometimes even contradict each other, just as in politics, religion and other areas of human endeavour. My dietrules are based on the principles of the earlier 'nature cure' movement, modified by clinical nutrition research and my own experiences.The less ideal the diet, the more are specific remedies, supplements and other therapies needed to overcome chronic diseases.Conversely, on an ideal diet, combined with antimicrobial therapy and cleansing, specific interventions can be kept to a minimum.Improving our diet usually requires a considerable shift in eating habits, and re-education of our taste buds. It also requires considerablymore time and energy for food preparation. For most of us this is not easy. Therefore, it is best to make changes gradually, first movingtowards a high-quality diet, and then experimenting with periods on mainly fresh raw foods for maximum healing, rejuvenation andmaintenance of optimal health into old age.However, do not rely too much on 'expert' advice, ultimately it is best learning to trust your intuition and your body to tell you what itneeds. If you are not addicted to a certain food but crave it, then it is probably good for you.
2. Eliminate harmful microbes and parasites
from your body using antimicrobial remedies as outlined in The Ultimate Cleanse; anelectronic zapper is good in addition to clean the blood. Antimicrobial therapy is not only the first but commonly also the most important therapy for overcoming chronic health problems.Because of the widespread use of antibiotics most of us are now infested with fungi and related microbes such as Candida andmycoplasmas. These are at the very core of most of our modern diseases because they devastate our immune system and generatepowerful toxins. This then leads to other microbial and parasitic infestations, Leaky Gut Syndrome, allergies, autoimmune diseases,cancer and a wide range of mental and emotional diseases and problems. Without an effective antimicrobial program all the other stepstend to give only limited results. After an intense initial phase, continue for a long time with a low-key maintenance program.3.
Clean your blood vessels
to improve the blood circulation. Because of microbial infestations as well as accumulating wastes andtoxins we develop chronic inflammations. These in turn lead to excessive blood clotting with micro-clots blocking capillaries, and fibrinstructures combining with lipids and calcium to narrow blood vessels and restrict blood flow to the brain, heart and other organs. Thisresults in stiffness, rigidity, cramps, muscle pain, hypertension, loss of memory, deep vein thrombosis, heart attacks. strokes, andgenerally declining body functions. These blockages can gradually be removed with proteolytic and especially fibrinolytic enzymes suchas Nattokinase and Serrapeptase.
4. Remove metabolic wastes and toxins:
drink plenty of unpolluted water or fresh juices; stimulate the skin, use laxative foods,colonics and packs; remove calcifications, mercury and other toxic metals, and have repeated cleansing periods, see Fasting and
Cleansing.Cleansing is needed to climb up further towards optimal health. Gradually our cells, tissues and blood vessels become more and moreclogged up with waste products and toxins, thereby making our metabolism, blood circulation and body functions ever more inefficient.Periodic raw food diets are excellent to remove these wastes. To properly cleanse we need to take in less energy from food than weneed for our daily activity, then the body is forced to start digesting these waste residues, and even cysts, tumours and other unhealthytissue.In addition, we may use specific remedies and therapies to focus cleansing activity on the intestinal tract, the liver and the gall bladder. Afurther challenge is the reduction of calcifications that gradually increase as we get older, causing stiffness, rigidity, cramps,hypertension, loss of memory, and generally declining body functions. Helpful are increased intake of boron, magnesium, sodiumthiosulphate, and organic acids such as lemon juice or vinegar. See Fasting and Cleansing for details.
5. Improve energy flows
and work out specific problems with reflexology, acupressure, massage, ear acupuncture, magnet andmeridian therapy - see the relevant articles in Healing the Body.Overall the aim is to facilitate a free flow of energy in the acupuncture meridians. From an energy point of view most of our healthproblems are due to blockages in these energy flows, commonly associated with muscle tension, calcification and emotional as well astissue scars. Stagnating energy flows cause inflammations in front of the blockage and weakness behind it and lead to deterioration of associated organs and glands.
6. Strengthen the body
with regular exercises such as yoga, tensing and stretching or suitable outdoors activity, see Exercises.
7. Create natural living conditions
for yourself and your family by minimising synthetics and plastics, pollution and harmful radiation inyour home. Cultivate mild sun exposure, walking barefoot, being in natural surroundings, see Healthy Living.
8. Learn meditation and mind improvement,
especially guided imagery; learn expressing your negative emotions appropriately, andalso to generate positive feelings and emotions; love yourself as well as your neighbour; adopt a positive or spiritual philosophy of life.Find a worthy goal or ideal and strive to manifest it, see Mind Tools.
9. Form or join a health or healing group
to support and heal each other.
An important general principle in healing is to aim for an overall balanced condition. Generally, every condition within our body is theresult of the interaction of two opposing forces. In oriental philosophy there are the concepts of yin and yang. Yin is female, cold andpassive; yang is male, hot and active. In Western thinking we see body processes as interplay between overactive and under-activeconditions, tension and relaxation, the sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous systems. As part of our healing, we aim for balance not only at the biochemical level, but also in our emotions and thinking. As an extrovert, for instance, aim to go inwards by meditating and learning to listen. If you are an introvert, then try to become more outgoing and open inyour relationships and social interactions. The following table shows the general principle of opposing forces that rule our body.
