Have you been informed about what kind of food should be avoided? - NL-002
Good health is heavily reliant on proper nourishment, which is why diet is so important. In order to heal, revitalize, and construct new cells, the body needs the right fuel. This includes drinking plenty of clean water and, whenever possible, consuming organic whole foods, grass-fed meats, free-range poultry, and wild-caught fish. Additionally, it is beneficial to incorporate green leafy vegetables, nuts, healthy fats such as coconut oil and grass-fed lard/butter, limited grains, and minimal fruit sugars into the diet. Finally, avoid GMO, pre-processed, and heavily refined foods, specifically those high in added sugars.
Adopting a gluten-free lifestyle is often beneficial, because gluten can be an inflammatory agent. Additionally, many gluten-containing items may have high concentrations of agricultural by-products, like glyphosate. In some cases, it may be wise to avoid dairy products for the same purpose.
Processed vegetable oils and trans fats should be avoided. A high sugar intake is detrimental to health, so sugary drinks and sodas should be minimized, the exception being those that come from nutrient-dense fruits such as berries. Caffeine should be limited to about 100 mg each day, and foods or drinks containing aspartame should be avoided.
In order to maintain a healthy and clean lifestyle, it is essential to avoid environmental contaminations, like tobacco smoke, controlling the intake of alcohol, using non-harmful cleaning products, and using organic personal care products and cosmetics.
A balanced diet with an organic multivitamin and trace minerals is key for a healthy immune system. Supplementing with Vitamin D3, K2, zinc and a transporter such as quercetin to move the zinc into cells, and vitamin C will help to support T cells and NK cells. (We will soon have a Liposomal Quercetin product.)
Berries, carrots, citrus fruits, cruciferous vegetables (like bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, and garden cress), the garlic family (chive, garlic, leeks, onions, and shallots), green tea, and tomatoes can all help fight cancer. Some herbs that aid in prevention are artemisinin, blackberry leaves, Chrysanthemum morifolium flower petals, danshen, morinda, and scutellaria.
Maintaining good health requires us to take care of our bodies by consuming nutritious food, limiting contamination, optimizing the release of toxins, exercising frequently, sleeping soundly, connecting with the environment, and managing external pressure.
It appears to be no coincidence that many of these habits characterize the everyday lives of those located in so-called "blue zones." These are places in the world where individuals live to the oldest age with an extraordinary number of centenarians. Additionally, the people in these regions share something else in common - participation in a community that practices some form of meditation.
Taking time for oneself can be difficult, but this enables one to learn self-restraint and companionship.
From a scientific standpoint, illness can come about when the body is not in harmony, potentially due to external elements, unhealthy habits, the destructive impacts of stress, or because there were earlier imbalances passed down genetically. To face the difficulties of this world in an effective way, meditation and contemplation are advantageous for cultivating the necessary mental mindset.
Realizing that we and this universe are a part of a magnificent, wonderful, and essentially positive existence can motivate us to think and act in ways which not only benefit our health, but go beyond that.
In the face of all the hostility and wickedness in the world, we are obligated to make the choice to be better individuals. Enhancing our own personal values will lead to a betterment of society. By recognizing the truth, practicing empathy and helping others, we can overcome the difficulties and achieve physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
