Ok, so you’ve stopped self-destructive habits, you’ve stopped consuming unhealthy fats & oils, meat, and dairy products. That’s a great start. No for some finer points on nutrition. To really get the most out of your food, you need to properly combine your foods. The main thing you need to remember about this is quite simply, do not mix carbohydrates with proteins. This comes down to fundamental bio-chemistry. Carbohydrates require alkaline digestive juices to break them down. Proteins are digested with the use of acidic digestive juices (Hydrochloric Acid). When you eat proteins and carbohydrates at the same time (say, a baked potato + a steak) these different digestive juices neutralise each other but the food still needs to be digested! Your body uses immense amounts of nerve energy every time it does this – and your food is still not fully digested! As a result, the carbohydrate ferments, and the protein putrefies – little if any of your food is digested, and your body has used up huge amounts of energy in the process. Forget how you’ve been taught to eat in your culture, this is how your body actually works. If you don’t follow this guideline, you will have taken a 3-hour digestive process and extended it to 11-14 hours. All night long, instead of resting, your body will work like crazy to break down this food, usurping your nerve energy. Use your common sense! Look at nature! Animals eat ONE concentrated food at a time! Don’t let food become recreation instead of nutrition! Also, only eat comfortable amounts of food. Don’t force yourself if you are not hungry. And please don’t eat while you are stressed! Stress instantly stops the normal secretion of digestive enzymes. Whatever you eat will either ferment or putrefy (it will rot in your system). Drink water before your meals, not during or after. Drinking water during or right after your meal will hamper your digestion as it dilutes your digestive fluids and your body then needs to produce extra digestive juices to get the same job done. So wait at least 20 minutes after a meal before drinking.

Ok, so you’ve now taken on board all I’ve suggested – you are a live food healthconscious food combining vegetarian. No meat, no dairy, and plenty of fresh fruit & veg. One would think that we’re out of the woods now, right? Well… not exactly. In today’s world of mass-produced processed foods, we simply cannot get all the nutrients we need from our neighbourhood grocery store. If want to experience outstanding levels of health, we need excellent nutritional supplementation. Indeed, the over-exploitation of fields by modern agricultural techniques has depleted our soils. Your grocery store veggies contain only a fraction of the vitamins and minerals that they did 100 years ago. You could be eating all the fruit and veg in the world, and still not be getting ALL the minerals and vitamins your body needs (though it’s still great for the body, because they still do contain minerals and vitamins, and are water-rich, cleansing, ‘live’ foods). There are plenty of great nutritional supplementation companies out there. I personally use Dr. Robert O. Young’s Supergreens™ (more on this extraordinary breakthrough science later on), Udos Oil™, and Mannatech’s Glyconutrients™. (I have no financial links with any of the above organizations) I was introduced to Glyconutrients by my good friend Stephen Bragger. Stephen had been in a terrible motorcycle accident 11 years earlier. This accident left him in a wheelchair, with over 20 broken bones, no short-term memory, Asthma, a speech impediment, taking innumerable painkillers and anti-depressants… the list goes on and on. 8 years later, and within 6 weeks of taking Glyconutrients he could walk properly again, no longer had Asthma nor required drugs, his speech impediment was gone, and had regained full memory faculties. His body has just grown stronger and stronger. The results I have witnessed in people’s health as a result of taking Glyconutrients have bordered on the miraculous. I have spoken to people who have overcome Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Arthritis, Lupus, type 1 Diabetes, allergies, Neurofibromatosis, even reversed Down Syndrome, blindness, paralysis, and slowed down Parkinsons and Alzheimers, all thanks to supplementing their diet with Glyconutrients. Here is what Stephen has to say about the science of Glyconutrients:

Glyconutrients, The 8 Sugars That Heal
Mark Anastasi – All rights reserved.

Many of the chronic, degenerative diseases that afflict the western world today, like heart disease, cancer and diabetes have only really become a major problem since the early 20th century. Before this period, most people died of infectious diseases caused by bacteria and viruses. So what has changed – what is causing the upsurge in these chronic diseases now, when healthcare systems in the developed world seem to be so advanced? Since the 1930’s, when we first started to change from natural farming techniques, developed over many thousands of years, to scientific farming techniques, our diets have changed dramatically, with a vast increase in consumption of processed foods and a corresponding reduction in consumption of fresh, locally grown produce. Over the same period, radical changes in our lifestyles have taken place, along with a relentless rise in the production and use of chemicals and plastics that have never existed on our planet before and an associated increase in environmental pollution. Ignorance of the effects of these factors, coupled with the blind pursuit of profit, have created a situation in which disease, suffering and unnecessarily early death are as common in our society as they were in earlier centuries but with entirely different causes. Today, it is our diet, rather than pathogenic bacteria and viruses which is responsible for all this suffering. “Everything man needs to sustain health can be found in nature. It is the job of science to find these substances.” Paracelsus What is wrong with our diet? Our bodies have evolved to be able to get all the nutrients they need to function from fresh, raw natural foods grown in nutrient-rich soil or from animals that grazed on other plants growing in the same rich soil. For many thousands of years, farmers used crop rotation to prevent the soil from becoming depleted of minerals and salts. They all practised what is now being called 'organic farming' – the only fertilisers used were manure from healthy animals and the composted remains of the plants that produced the food. These replaced all the nutrients that had been taken from the soil. No pesticides or herbicides were used, so a variety of plants would grow together, with insects, animals and birds all around to contribute more nutrients to the soil from their body waste and, eventually, their entire bodies. Today, monoculture is the norm - huge fields of just one crop grown year after year on the same soil, with weeds and insects suppressed by toxic chemicals and little or no shelter for animals and birds. Most modern farmers do not carry out this essential soil maintenance – they simply add the three most important minerals to the soil in the form of NPK fertilisers. This does make their crops grow full of calories and fibre but they are lacking in the essential nutrients our bodies need – trace elements such as selenium and natural compounds called phytonutrients that are only produced by fully nourished, mature plants. To add to the problem, the fruits and vegetables that we buy are often picked early, days or weeks before reaching the supermarkets, to increase their shipping and shelf life. Unfortunately, this means they do not develop the essential phytonutrients that we need to nourish our cells. Only fully and naturally ripened foods can provide us with the nutritional benefits our bodies have evolved to obtain from these phytonutrients. The problem is made

worse by use of preservatives, additives and excessive processing of our food by various methods such as cooking, canning and drying. If a food has lost 90% of the required nutrition through heat, then you would have to eat 10 times as much of it to get the minimum required nutrition. Also, the average person in an industrialised country eats only 2-3 servings of fruit and vegetables per day, compared to the minimum of five portions that the medical departments of most western government now recommend. Even if we are the one in ten people who eat our five servings of fruit and vegetables a day, there is evidence that this is no longer enough to sustain us. The average fresh vegetables in our diet in the 1930’s, contained 50% more minerals, weight for weight, than they do in the 21st century. This is a major and significant change in our diet. The Journal of the American Medical Association has stated that “Recent evidence shows that sub-optimal levels of vitamins even well above those causing deficiency syndromes, are risk factors for chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and osteoporosis. A large proportion of the general population is apparently at increased risk for this reason... the high prevalence of sub-optimal vitamin levels implies that the usual diet provides an insufficient amount of these vitamins.” The article concludes by recommending that every adult should consume high quality supplements. “Let your food be your medicine, let your medicine be your food.” Hippocrates The Missing Ingredients For years, we have known about vitamins, minerals, amino acids (proteins), essential fatty acids and water being the building blocks of the human body and of the need to take them as our body requires them. Until recently, very little was known about carbohydrates, apart from their ability to provide energy, in the form of glucose. The most exciting and most recent scientific advance is the discovery of other special sugars called glyconutrients which are non-toxic, plant-based and 8 of them are key ingredients for effective cell-to-cell communication. A healthy body consists of many components working together in sophisticated harmony, and must have accurate internal communication to function properly. In its most basic form, this communication occurs at the cellular level. Only two of the eight special sugars are commonly found in foods we eat. Our diets have changed in response to demands for quicker, cheaper methods of mass producing food consequently we are not eating foods that once supplied a greater variety of these sugars. While the body has the potential ability to manufacture all of these monosaccharides (sugars) from common sugars like glucose found in the diet, the conversion process is complicated, requiring energy and time as well as numerous enzymes and vitamins. People with inborn errors of metabolism are especially vulnerable to a breakdown in this process but all of us with inadequate nutrition are at risk.

Whenever these necessary monosaccharides cannot be made, communication is slowed or impaired as a result. Viruses can also interfere with our body’s ability to make the conversions. These glyconutrients perform one of the most complex functions in the body. They allow our cells to effectively send and translate commands from one cell to another through our body’s network of trillions of cells, communicating with, controlling, and protecting every cell in our body. From cell division to cell protection, the role of these sugars is fundamental in life’s progression – and key to OPTIMAL HEALTH. How Does It Work? Glyconutrients are described as the alphabet for the cellular language of life. They make up the letters and words of the cellular language. Just as 4 simple shapes make up the 26 letters of our alphabet, which enable us to form thousands of words; in the body, eight sugars in various combinations make up the extensive vocabulary of our cells. By the late 1980s, much research effort had conclusively demonstrated that of the 200 or more known monosaccharides, eight of these glyconutrients or simple sugars are essential to maintain optimal cellular health and communication. We must have all eight sugars for maximum health. Lack only one of these sugars, and disease and premature ageing begin to take hold. Unfortunately, six of these sugars are not in our modern diet. “Only two of these essential sugars, glucose (found in plants and table sugar) and galactose (found in milk products and certain pectins) are common in our diet.” writes Emil Mondoa, M.D. in his book: ‘Sugars that Heal’. Safe and natural, even mothers’ milk has the same eight essential sugars. The sugars form the ‘fingers’ at the end of the protein molecules, and this is the method by which cells ‘talk’ to each other. These sugars attach themselves to the protein surface on each and every cell in our body to form a complex connection for cell-to-cell communication. The individual cells in our bodies use glycoproteins (the building blocks of our immune system), much like the Braille bumps used by the blind, for information and communication. If the bumps on an elevator or other signs were damaged or altered, a blind person would get confused and have great difficulty finding his or her way around. Below, on the left, we have proper communication. On the right, with just 1 of the 4 shapes that make the English alphabet removed, we see the resulting miscommunication. Our blood type is determined genetically by the type of glycoprotein on the surface of our red blood cells. The difference of one single sugar on the receptor determines whether we are type A, B or O. Our immune system cells roam the body all day long rubbing up against

these ‘Glyco Braille Bumps’ attempting to discover the identity and condition of our cells. Because of the lack of six of these sugars in our diet, our immune system attempts to operate much the same as the blind person using damaged Braille bumps. Without these surface sugars, our cell cannot talk to each other, our systems get confused, and fail to protect our body from day to day attacks. Our body may decide to attack healthy good cells resulting in auto immune diseases such as MS, lupus, diabetes, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and arthritis, while bad cells like cancer are left to grow and multiply because our killer cells are confused. Hormones could be misdirected, leaving us with physical and emotional problems, and cells may not know which vitamins and minerals they need. Our blood type is determined genetically by the type of glycoprotein on the surface of our red blood cells. The difference of one single sugar on the receptor determines whether we are type A, B or 0. Are These Sugars Safe? Our body was designed to use glyconutrients, to incorporate them into our glycoproteins. As such, they are an essential part of the diet. They are food, not drugs. They have no toxic side effects. Five of the eight are found in human breast milk, (one of the reasons why babies are protected from disease by breast feeding). THESE SUGARS ARE NOT PHARMACEUTICAL AGENTS AND DO NOT CURE ANYTHING. They simply restore basic cellular functions to normal. Then the body can fend for itself. The natural killer (NK) cell will work to identify and destroy diseased or cancerous cells. The immune system can be restored to normal to modulate itself in response to attack. “If This Is So Good, Why Don’t Most Doctors Know About It?” Glyconutrients is one of the newest areas of health science. Since 1965, more than 20,000 papers have been written on glyconutrients. Despite these documents, clinical trials and various individual studies, the majority of doctors have not heard the word ‘glyconutrients’ nor do they understand why they would need it. Doctors have worked with drugs for so long they find it difficult to believe that a natural product can help our bodies overcome so many serious health conditions. As Dr Steve Nugent says: “The vast majority of medical schools teach nothing on the use of dietary supplements. They are taught about drugs and surgery, but are not taught about dietary supplements to any great extent. Medical schools are sponsored in large part by pharmaceutical companies, who have no interest in manufacturing and selling something that they cannot control financially. Therefore, there is no money to drive the knowledge of glyconutritionals.

Most doctors are not aware of the information about glyconutritionals and consequently the media, who gets their information from doctors, is unaware as well. This leaves the general public in the dark on the most important nutritional breakthrough for their health.” It could also be that due to the dramatic increase of chronic illness and disease, doctors are busier than ever. Perhaps they simply do not make the time to research wellness alternatives and the many studies and benefits available on glyconutrients. But as Dr Ian MacRobert writes “The truth is coming to the fore now. There are several thousand medical practitioners in the USA who regularly use glyconutrients in their practices.” Several eminent American hospitals use glyconutrients, the John Hopkins Medical Centre and the Mayo Hospital to name a few. The AMA in Australia has just released a paper acknowledging the patients right to use complimentary medicine. The last four Nobel Prizes in Physiology or Medicine were awarded for discoveries in the field of Cellular Communication. Dr John Axford, past president of the Clinical Immunology and Allergy Section of the Royal Society of Medicine and Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians has gone public stating “These are the molecules of the decade!” Dr Axford has authored and co-authored over 50 published peer-reviewed scientific papers; over 100 published abstracts and letters, and two bestselling medical textbooks. He is actively involved with research in rheumatology and is very interested in the glycobiology of arthritic disease. In his work, Dr Axford has noted that the severity of Rheumatoid Arthritis was directly related to the degree of deficiency of the glyconutrient called galactose. Oxford University has nearly 60 full-time staff in their Department of Glycobiology. Such a concentration of manpower is distinctive, demonstrating the importance that this world-leading research centre places on glyconutrients. Glyconutrients (or glyconutritionals) are NOT vitamins, minerals, herbals or Alternative medicine, nor a cure or cures for specific diseases. They are essential nutrients for human cells to communicate properly. Research on glyconutrients now run to over 80,000 papers in many established medical journals globally. These studies acknowledge the use and support of glyconutrients in the treatment of such conditions as: Acid reflux, ADD/ADHD, Adrenals, AIDS-HIV, Allergic reactions, Allergy or Allergies, ALS, Alzheimer’s disease, Anorexia, Arthritis, Arthritis -juvenile rheumatoid, Arthritis -osteoarthritis, Arthritis -rheumatoid, Asthma, Attention-deficit / hyperactivity disorder, Autism, Autoimmune diseases, Back pain, Bipolar disorder, Bladder cancer, Brain tumor, Breast cancer, Cerebral palsy, Cancer, Cholesterol -high blood, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Cold, Colitis, Colds, Crohn's disease, Cystic

Who studies and recommends glyconutrients? • The Physicians Desk Reference (PDR) is consulted by 99% of all doctors and healthcare professionals before recommending solutions to their patients. Glyconutrients are listed in the PDR for compromised immune systems. • Harper’s Biochemistry, a medical textbook identifying the necessary monosaccharides (sugars) necessary for optimal health. This text book has been educating healthcare professionals since 1996 about glyconutrients and their role in health and healing. • Scientific American, the July 2002 cover story titled “Sweet Medicine” stated, “Sugars modify many proteins and fats on cell surfaces and participate in such biological processes as immunity and cell-to-cell communication.” • The National Institutes of Health recently awarded the Scripps Research Institute in San Diego, CA, a $34 million grant to understand how cells and the immune system use these sugars. And the list goes on and on. Don’t you owe it to yourself and your family to find out more? We have come to a point in history where we expect medicine to heal us, the schools to educate us and the State to look after us. Never mind our own personal responsibility for our own lives. ABC News reported on October 21, 2003 that the United States spends more on health care, per capita, than any other country in the world and is rated only 37th in the world in “overall health system performance” – just below Costa Rica (WHO). We must invest in our health today otherwise we will pay a huge price tomorrow. As good as modern medicine is, it simply has no answers for the flood of autoimmune diseases, cancers and degenerative diseases which are bombarding our world. As Dr Iain MacRobert says “Glyconutrition is about getting to the root cause of chronic degenerative disease. It is about

Conclusions Every system in your body is affected by your nutrition. The better your nutrition, the better your self-healing ability, the better your mental function, your immune system, nervous system, cardiovascular system, skeletal system; the function of every organ in your body will also improve – heart, kidney, brain, liver, pancreas, colon etc. Nutrition is a vital area to study if you choose to lead a healthy life. I strongly urge you to educate yourself further about optimum nutrition, and to buy quality nutritional supplements. “But that’s expensive”, I hear some of you moan. Expensive? Compared to WHAT?? How much does it cost you to suffer from Cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, gout, impotence, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis… Think of the pain involved. Think of the tens (hundreds) of thousands of dollars in medical bills incurred, lost productivity, years, decades of your life cut short… What is your life worth? What are 20 years of life actually worth to you? Prevention through proper nutrition is a bargain, trust me.

IV – Positive, Directed Thinking
The 4th element that affects the health of your cells, after Oxygen, Water, and Nutrients… is your state of mind. The growing field of psychoneuroimmunology is fascinating, and absolute anathema to traditional medical thinking. The mind has tremendous power over the body. Fear compromises your immune system. Depression depresses your immune system massively. Happiness stimulates your immune system.
Mark Anastasi – All rights reserved.

If you want to stay healthy, you MUST master your emotions. You MUST gain control over your emotional states. Your mind can make you sick no matter how you eat, how you exercise, or how you breathe. I’ve already touched upon, briefly, “The Placebo Effect”. Patients that are given water pills and are TOLD that they’ll get well… actually get better just from the BELIEF that the ‘pills’ work! Take virtually any disease known to man, and usually 25-30% of patients treated with placebos will get well! This is known as ‘The Placebo Effect’.

This is quite astonishing – our mind has been scientifically proven to be an incredibly powerful healing tool that can reverse cure practically any disease or condition up to 30% of the time, with zero side-effects and at zero cost… and most doctors completely ignore this fact.
Fear compromises your immune system. People who are fearful experience a drop in their T-cell count. Fear, worry, anguish, anger, resentment, jealousy, stress, etc. are MENTAL TOXINS – POISONS FOR YOU BODY! They have a chemical effect! If you are in a state of anger or resentment, you literally create toxins and poisons in your system! People who are emotionally depressed will have a depressed immune system as well. Conversely, someone incredibly happy has his or her immune system constantly stimulated! You can actually STIMULATE your immune system through your emotions! Positive emotions – happiness, joy, laughter, enthusiasm, passion, excitement, etc – release endorphins! Having great emotions running through your body releases these completely natural ‘happiness chemicals’ into your bloodstream, and can bring about a positive change in your health with little or no change to your lifestyle! These natural chemicals in your body would cost you tens of thousands – even millions – of dollars to buy from a pharmaceutical company… and come without any of the sideeffects! Norman Cousins cured himself of cancer through laughter therapy! He laughed himself back to health by watching funny films for 8 hours a day! Research shows that the 2 most important factors in heart disease and predictions of fatal heart attack are: 1- Job dissatisfaction – people who feel they have no meaning or purpose to their lives 2- The ‘Self-Happiness Rating’ – answering ‘yes’ to the question ‘Are you happy?’

Pretty incredible, don’t you think? If you’re unhappy, or feel like your life lacks meaning… you become diseased and drop dead. Ever heard a doctor mention this to you?
“Hope, purpose, and determination are not merely mental states. They have electro-chemical connections that play a large part in the workings of the immune system and, indeed, in the entire economy of the total human organism… The emotional state of the patient has specific effects on the mechanisms involved in illness and health. The modern physician, therefore…. Will prescribe not just out of the pharmacy or his little black bag, but out of the magnificent apothecary that is the human brain, which can activate and potentiate the healing system. The roster of emotions are hope, faith, love, will to live, festivity, playfulness, purpose, and determination. These are powerful biochemical prescriptions.” – Head First: The Biology of Hope, 1989, by Norman Cousins.

THE PROCESS OF MANIFESTATION Now for the really weird stuff. This is where I get all metaphysical on you. What I want to talk to you about is the process of Manifestation. Most of you are probably unaware that you are currently manifesting things in your life at the speed of thought. In fact, you have done so your entire life. In James Allen’s short classic, ‘As A Man Thinketh’, he explained this simple Universal truth that… as you think, so are you (or so you become). (Please visit to download James Allen’s short classic) Another way of putting it is, you attract to you what you think about most of the time – what you focus on. This is called “The Law of Attraction” You thoughts are pure energy! Think about it! Everything you see around you was once nothing more than someone’s imagination. And now it’s here, in front of you, realized. There is immense power in what I am describing a– The Law of Attraction – as it means that you are automatically pulled towards the realization of your thoughts, dreams, and goals. The flip side of the Law of Attraction is that what you fear you attract. If you are vibrating at the frequency of fear, depression, illness, lack of money, anger… you will only attract more negativity into your life. Negative people, negative circumstances, etc. If you focus on your disease… you will only experience MORE disease.

The Universe just provides you with a big printout of your thoughts. What would you be doing if you were totally healthy? How would you act? What would you believe? What would you say? How would you be around other people? Only health can attract health, so start feeling vibrant and healthy and see how your body responds! You want to be healthy? YOU MUST VISUALIZE AND FOCUS ON A MENTAL PICTURE OF YOURSELF BEING HEALTHY & VIBRANT & HAPPY! Then eliminate from your mental constructs any inner doubt, pessimism, or negative thoughts. The Universe will then ABSOLUTELY bring that picture into reality. You may be doing everything right with your diet or your lifestyle, but if you keep flowing energy towards your fear of being ill, or your fear of dying… the energy that you are flowing towards the Universe will attract to it similar energy and bring it back into your life. Where your attention goes, energy flows. This absolutely WORKS.

V – Maintain An Alkalized Inner Terrain
Let’s recap. First, I informed you of the disease EPIDEMIC we are currently experiencing in the developed world. Secondly, I exposed the SOURCE of the problem 1- Our unnatural, unbalanced lifestyle, that is causing our body to literally ‘break down’ 2- The web of lies spun by the medico-pharmaceutical complex and the media, covering up the truth. Thirdly, I presented you with THE ONLY TRUE SOLUTION FOR BEING HEALTHY. Essentially, how to put your body back into balance, how to be healthy and vibrant by taking care of yourself AT A CELLULAR LEVEL – allowing for proper cell functioning – through: 1- proper oxygenation & exercise 2- water 3- excellent nutrition 4- positive, directed thinking The final piece of the jigsaw puzzle called ‘taking care of my cells’, is your pH balance. The term ‘pH’ stands for ‘Power of Hydrogen’. The pH scale ranges from 1 to 14, with 1 being highly acidic and 7 being 'neutral'.

Introducing Dr. Robert O. Young and the “pH Miracle”
I am very excited to introduce you to the work of the American microbiologist and nutritionist Robert O. Young, Ph.D. ( ) He is a brilliant research scientist who is currently sending shockwaves throughout the scientific world. He is head of the InnerLight Biological Research Center and co-author of the best-selling book The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health as well as Sick And Tired.

Dr. Young’s scientific findings have led him to a philosophy known as The New Biology. In contrast, the ‘old’ biology (based on the work of Louis Pasteur in the late 1800s) stems from the idea that disease comes from germs which invade the body from the outside. Simply put, the New Biology states that there is only One Sickness and One Disease, and that this one ‘sickness’ is the over-acidification of the body due primarily to an inverted way of living, thinking, and eating. This over-acidification leads to the over-growth in our body of micro-organisms (such as yeast and fungi) whose poisons produce the symptomologies that medical science refers to as “disease”. Based on Dr. Young’s theory, there’s only one sickness, and there can therefore be only one remedy and treatment, and that is to alkalise the body and break the cycle of imbalance, thus allowing us to experience the energy, vitality and true health we’re all meant to have. I strongly urge you to visit his website (www.phmiracleliving ) and also to pick up his extraordinary book, Sick And Tired.

The Importance of Your pH Balance
Why is it so important to maintain our pH balance at 7.36? What happens when you become ‘acidic’? What are the consequences?
It has been discovered that maintaining our body’s natural pH balance of 7.36 is paramount for our health. An acidic inner terrain – the ideal environment for toxins and micro-organisms Do you remember the ‘Seeds On A Clean Surface’ metaphor? If you throw seeds on a clean floor… they won’t take root or grow. Now, if you throw those same seeds in a dirty muddy field, filled with the nutrients they
Mark Anastasi – All rights reserved.

need, on the other hand… they will thrive. It’s all about the terrain. Dr. Young has found that when the body is in a healthy alkaline balance, toxic microorganisms – such as germs, bacteria, viruses, yeasts, fungi, molds – are unable to get a foothold. Indeed, these micro-organisms thrive in an acidic environment. An over-abundance of these toxic micro-organisms leads to the SYMPTOMS we typically call ‘disease’: fever, throwing up, acne, sweat, diarrhoea, headaches, low energy, joint pains, inability to sleep, fatigue, kidney problems, convulsions, burping, irritations, etc. (signs that your body is fighting and getting rid of the ‘poison’) What’s great is that YOU control this entirely. Alkalize your inner environment (through what you eat and drink) and you will wipe out all these toxins – it’s like switching the thermostat to ‘15’, when these toxins only survive at ‘30’ or above. Alkalinity maintains your inner electro-magnetic conductivity Electro-magnetic current is what actually runs our body. For example, it is through tiny electro-magnetic pulses that nerve signals are sent through your body, and that nutrients are passed on to every cell in your body. Our pH balance of 7.36 allows for the conductivity of electro-magnetic power throughout our body. That electrical power is created by our internal bio-chemistry. This is a very delicate balance, and acid coursing through our system breaks it down completely. In order to maintain this powerful electric current inside of us, our body MUST maintain a pH of 7.36 constantly. In fact, this is so important, that if this were to change by just a couple of points, it would alter your chemistry so radically that your entire system would simply shut down. You would die instantly. Imagine someone ‘pulling the plug’ on an electrical plant. That’s how important alkalinity is. An acid inner terrain destroys your Energy levels Your blood is your ‘river of life’, bringing oxygen and nutrients to every cell in your body. It MUST remain at a pH of 7.36 in order to be able to continue doing so. You see, it is your red blood cells that carry the oxygen through your body, and the outside of each blood cell has a negative (-) electrical charge.
Mark Anastasi – All rights reserved.

This keeps the blood cells from sticking together (they constantly repel one another). An acidic environment strips these negative electrical charges from your red blood cells and as a result the blood cells start to slam into each other, clumping together, moving slower and ripping apart (remember, cells are very sensitive little devices). With the blood cells sticking together, they now go through the bloodstream more slowly and less oxygen and nutrients flow through your body. As a result, your energy goes through the floor. DON’T let your body get into ‘survival mode’ Furthermore, since your survival depends on your blood maintaining a pH of 7.36, your body will do WHATEVER IT TAKES to maintain this balance. And that’s where the real trouble begins. First, it will use up your stores of alkalinity – ‘Alkaline reserves’ – to neutralise the acids. But it takes 20 parts of alkalinity to neutralise 1 part of acid, and you will soon use up these reserves if you keep putting in more acid than your body can deal with. Once you’ve depleted your reserves, you are in an extremely dangerous situation. You are about to have a major “dis-ease” affect your body. Your body now takes the acids out of the bloodstream and away from the vital organs of the body (as this could lead to serious health problems) and stores them into the fats of the body until they can be neutralised. This leads to obesity, for example. Another thing your body does, to eliminate the acid you’ve created with your lifestyle, is leach calcium from your bones to attach the calcium molecules (that are alkaline in nature) to the acid in order to get it out of the system. This leads to Osteoporosis, for example. An acid inner terrain leads to the destruction of your cells As the environment becomes more and more acidic, these cells weaken and die, releasing their own acids into the bloodstream. This compounds the problem. Cells are now being destroyed more rapidly, and as all that acid builds up, your inner environment gets more and more polluted. Your inner environment is now compromised. Germs start to multiply rapidly – bacteria, yeast, fungus, and moulds – because you have created a feeding ground for them. This deteriorates more and more, until pretty soon you start experiencing various pains and aches around your body. You are then well on your way to experiencing debilitating diseases and ageing…

Conclusion Your body is designed to get rid of acid, but our modern lifestyles often make it an overwhelming task. We are constantly challenging our body’s ability to remain alkaline. Your body’s innate intelligence knows how to respond – under normal conditions. But it wasn’t designed for the junk food onslaught and other examples of an unnatural lifestyle we put it through on a consistent basis. We’ve always thought in terms of the outside world ‘attacking us’ (bugs, viruses, etc.), but we now see that everything comes down to our inner terrain. You MUST be alkaline. When it comes to health, Alkalinity is everything.

Our modern diet and lifestyle are the major culprits. Sources of acidity in our diet and lifestyle: • Stress and negative emotions (our emotions have a drastic effect on our health; negative thoughts, words, actions and emotions impact our bloodstream and create acid within us) • Pollution • Tobacco • Alcohol & Vinegar • Coffee • Pharmaceutical drugs • Salt • Sugar (metabolizes into acid) – in processed foods, soft drinks, fruit juices, sweets, chocolate, biscuits, ice creams, cakes, desserts, etc. • Excessive amounts of fruit (fructose is a sugar, sugar converts to acid) • Practically any processed foods (they are filled with preservatives, chemicals, sugar, salt, etc.) • Refined carbohydrates (sugar metabolizes into acid, and carbohydrates such as bread, pasta, cereals, rice, potatoes, etc. convert to sugars… that then metabolize into ACID). • Meat • Dairy products – milk, cheese, cream, butter, ice-cream… • Eggs • Cooked oils “Gosh, what’s there left to eat??”, you might say…

Trust me, you are still truly spoilt for choice. Pick up some vegetarian or vegan cookbooks, and you’ll be amazed at the thousands of delicious – and healthy – dishes and snacks you can create with a little bit of imagination.

There are hundreds of types of delicious vegetables, fruits, pulses, beans, nuts, seeds, salads to choose from! THAT’S what your body was designed for!!! Remember the “2-billion year-old car” metaphor? THAT’S the fuel your body has used for over 2 billion years! Cavemen did NOT ingest biscuits, meat, dairy, bread, eggs, pasta, cooked oils, coffee, alcohol, pharmaceutical drugs…!

We’ve turned food from nutrition to entertainment… and this has exacted a HUGE price on our HEALTH.

THE SOLUTION How to Get Back Into Balance
CLEANSE & ALKALISE! At its basic essence, the process of life is… ‘Consuming and Eliminating’. Both need to happen smoothly in order for a cell to be healthy. In order for cells to be healthy and vibrant, they need oxygen, nutrients, and the ability to eliminate their own waste. What happens if the cell is living in an environment (i.e. the bloodstream) that is polluted? If day after day we constantly consume more things than can be assimilated by the body – junk food, processed foods, ‘dead’ foods, alcohol, etc. – the body’s energy gets used up to eject all this waste. This is rather like never throwing out the trash – your house would soon become disgusting! Pretty soon the cells start to run out of energy. It is not long before the bloodstream starts to accumulate waste and toxins – substances that stop a cell from functioning at it’s best. As your cells become weaker, the functional efficiency of your system begins to drop. The real health challenge most people have is not that some ‘bug’ is attacking them, but that their inner environment has been compromised! Their lifestyle has weakened their body and has caused their inner environment to become polluted, resulting in mounting health problems. As I mentioned at the beginning, our bodies break down because they have gotten OUT OF BALANCE.

The first step on your way to breaking the cycle and getting back in balance, is YOU MUST CLEANSE! You have built up A LOT of toxicity and acidity inside of you throughout your life. It is time to do a bit of ‘spring cleaning’.

The ultimate gift you can give your body is to go on a 7-10 day cleanse (ideally, 30 days).
One way of doing a cleanse (or ‘detox’) is to switch to a healthy, alkaline, ‘liquid diet’ for 710 days. This means ingesting green drinks, green soups, juicing your vegetables… What you need to do is super-hydrate your system (i.e. drink a lot more fluids than you normally do). Make sure you drink fluids that are alkaline in nature – ‘green’ drinks – such as wheatgrass juice or Dr. Young’s Supergreens™. Going on such a ‘liquid feast’ will give all your organs a break (they won’t require much energy to digest all this, because it is LIVE food, and it is in liquid form so they don’t need to break the food down). This will also let your body flush out your system of all the toxicity you’ve built up, and heal and rebuild itself, since a) it will now have the energy to do so, and b) you won’t be ingesting any toxicity for the duration of the cleanse. Cold showers in the morning, skin brushing, and massages are also helpful in detoxing your body. By cleansing and alkalising, picking up some healthy eating habits, and exercising on a regular basis (in an aerobic fashion), you will begin to balance your system. My take on Supergreens™ Personally, I drink 4 litres of Supergreens™ a day, and would recommend it to ANYONE. It comes in powdered form, so you can take it with you anywhere and just add it to water. It is made of 49 different grasses and vegetables, with over 100 vitamins and minerals, and is electrically charged at 250Mhz (truly LIVE food). Just one scoopful, mixed with 1 litre of water, is the equivalent of ingesting 5 pounds of organic vegetables. The effects of using this product are simply miraculous. You will not believe how amazing it will make you feel. You will have so much alkalinity in your body that it will create a ‘buffer’ to deal with any challenge. Your body will no longer be in ‘survival mode’. There are hundreds of testimonials of people who’ve turned around their Cancer, Diabetes, AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, Osteoporosis, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Chronic Fatigue, etc. thanks to Dr. Young’s alkalarian approach to health and his nutritional supplements

Colon cleansing Your colon – or ‘large intestine’ – is a major way for your body to eliminate waste and toxins (literally: toxic waste). The fastest it eliminates that toxic waste out of your system, the better. Your stomach and intestines use billions of germs to break down your food, so that you can digest what is digestible and eliminate the rest. Imagine if all that resulting waste and billions of germ kind of stick around, multiply, and fester for a while… Imagine having a whole container of dangerous, highly toxic chemicals stored in your basement, leaking out and contaminating your entire house. You would want to get rid of that container pretty quickly, right? Unfortunately, most people don’t use their colon very effectively, and consequently it gets clogged up. Whenever you ingest something that your body can’t use right away (live foods), it ‘clogs’ up the system. The modern diet is incredibly clogging, because it mostly consists of DEAD FOODS. The average American has 15 lbs of faecal matter lodged in their system!!! It’s been there for years! Yuck! When your colon remains so clogged up and toxic, all these toxins back up into your bloodstream (this is knows as toxaemia, or auto-intoxication), compromising the integrity of your inner terrain. You are literally poisoning yourself. Visit to see what mucoid plaque in your intestines looks like. This is toxic matter that has been lodged inside of you for years. PLEASE go on a cleanse AND get yourself a colonic irrigation – you will be amazed at the difference it makes to your health and levels of energy. Toxic personal care products Another way we poison ourselves is through the modern personal care, skin care, and beauty products we use. These contain incredibly toxic elements! Shampoos, toothpaste, deodorants, perfumes, soaps, makeup, laundry detergents… the list goes on and on! Because each of these products individually do not contain enough chemicals to KILL you on the spot, manufacturers can get away with producing them. But make no mistake. Taken together, these ARE killing you. PLEASE use natural products instead, and avoid this CHEMICAL POISONING of yourself!
