I attended a seminar hosted by American Tyler Tolman the other night – Live Healthy, Be Happy. Thought I’d summarise the key points for you:
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients...in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” Thomas A. Edison
Self-care is the answer to living a life of health and vitality and avoiding disease.
It is certainly possible to cure and regenerate the body, as food enhances bodily functions.
Disease is nutritional deficiency and toxicity.
Nutritional guidelines by the American Cancer Society states to be healthy: drink 6-8 glasses of water, 5-7 servings of fruit and veges, 30 mins walk 5 days per week.
Food additives - no 1 Cacogenic: chemical preservatives, food colouring, artificial sweeteners, partially hydrogenated oils (trans fats), MSG.
Doctrine of signatures: food symbolism – foods appearance affects that particular part of the body – i.e. Walnuts aid the brain.
Some concepts to consider – ‘there is a lot of money in sickness’ and we need ‘a war on drugs’ (synthetic solutions – people become dependent on them – residual income for pharmaceutical companies)
Supplements have little effect on the body.
Diabetes is the world’s fastest growing disease and is curable naturally.
Applying substances to the exterior of the body is absorbed through the skin. ‘If you can’t eat it, don’t put in on your skin.’ Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is particularly bad.
In an oxygenated and alkaline environment disease cannot survive.
7 areas to consider for your health: Air, water, sunshine, exercise, whole foods, passion and relationships.
