The Swine Flu is being reported in worldwide media and everyone is worried. Of course it will get worse before it gets better, and, some say the Swine Flu Epidemic will get very, very much worse.
Am I worried about Swine Flu? Am I worried about any flu? No, I’m not even worried about a cold!
You might wonder why, and I’m going to give you a brief rundown of my “health” regimen. In 1997 (the last time I was sick) I had bronchitis for 3 months. I willingly took every drug the doctors threw at me to try and shake it, but it took 3 months. I swore I’d never get sick again, and I haven’t.
Over the past 12 years I’ve refined my diet to be at least 50% raw (nuts, seeds, lots of veggies, small amount of fruits, sprouted & dehydrated foods). The other 50% consists of lightly steamed veggies, whole grains and the occasional homemade pizza (shh!) and even ice cream once in a while! Oh yeah, and I do drink red wine a couple times a month. That’s the basic diet.
However, there are some other healthy things I ingest daily. First what I don’t ingest is soda, juices, carbonated or bottled waters, processed foods, meats and dairy. These things are acidic, and I’ve studied and learned that acidity allows germs – viruses, bacteria, fungus – to take hold and multiply inside you. They thrive on acidity, and create additional acidity from their waste products! Read My Story, particularly the part about my swollen knee for proof there is not only fungus amongus, but fungus IN us!
This theory of disease, that germs are already in us, but it is the health of your internal system that allows them to take hold, or not, was also supported by Louis Pasteur, the notable 19th century French chemist and microbiologist best known for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and prevention of disease. He recanted his famous germ theory of disease (microbes invade us and make us sick, therefore you need pharmaceuticals) on his deathbed. His popular germ theory was officially accepted and became the basis of Western medicine in the late 19th century, and the rest is history. His rival at the time, Dr. Antoine Bechamp, a genius in the field of science, was less well connected to the wealthy and those in politics, so HIS theory is what Pasteur, on his deathbed, admitted was correct, stating, “The microbe is nothing. The terrain is everything.”
It therefore stands to reason that the swine flu virus (or other pathogen) does not CAUSE disease, but rather seeks out an environment where it can thrive best, and that is in oxygen-deprived, acidic bodies. Disease cannot thrive in a well-oxygenated, alkaline environment. Therefore, the best defense against microbes, germs, harmful bacteria and viruses, such as the swine flu virus, is to keep the body alkaline and oxygenated.This enables the body to cure itself of virtually all diseases ranging from influenza to cancer, AIDS, heart disease, asthma, diabetes, arthritis and more.
The philosophy of the alkaline diet (briefly) is that the body must maintain a pH balance of 7.365 in the blood and other cells. In the same way that it has to maintain your body temperature within a certain range – your body will also do whatever it takes to maintain that pH balance. To neutralize acids consumed, our body buffers with alkaline reserves. However, with the modern Western diet this buffer is always very quickly exhausted, and the body has to draw alkaline minerals (magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium – principally) from wherever it can to keep our blood pH at 7.365. As stated earlier, when we consume too much acid and exhaust our alkaline buffers, our body is constantly being overloaded with acid build-up. Because the blood pH is so sensitive, a slight drop in the blood level, like to 7.2, gives a person the “condition” called Acidosis. Read more in “Your Body & pH articles…
Back to my lifestyle, in addition to being mostly vegan (a bit of cheese & fish a couple times a month), I believe in chlorophyll, good salt, good oils, and most importantly of all, good water.
I’ll address these each briefly:
- CHLOROPHYLL: Veggies of course, predominately dark colored, and lots of broccoli. I also take Chlorella & Spirulina every day and you can read more about it here and in the articles on my site. Chlorophyll oxegenates your blood, plus these foods are alkalizing, and disease cannot live in an oxygenated, alkaline environment. Nobel Prize Winner Dr. Otto Warburg, in the 1930s(!), led us to the knowledge that cancer lives in a low oxygen environment like most bacteria. Every time Dr. Warburg lowered the oxygen level by 35% in a healthy cell, it became cancerous. Cancer needs a low oxygen environment to survive, as do other pathogens. Basically 99% of the time, a terminal cancer victims body is a thousand time more acidic than normal. This environment causes a low or no oxygen environment in which cancer and disease thrives.
- Good SALT: Our body runs on water and salt, necessary for our electrical pathways. NOT ordinary table salt which is processed and the cause of all the “low-salt” diet hype, but good salt. I use only Himalayan Crystal Salt freely on all my food, and as a “Sole” as well. Although this is not up on my site yet, I sell this salt for $6.50/lb in fine granulated, small pebbles for grinding and larger rocks for making Sole. Do your research, then write me if you’re interested. Look up Himalayan Crystal Salt benefits, and, Salt Sole. You’ll find this salt’s mineral content almost exactly matches ours, as does the vibrational frequency of the salt. Other sea salts cannot match this Crystal Salt from 5,000 feet under the surface of the earth.
- Good OILS: We need good oils for good functioning of all our body’s systems. Not the cheap stuff folks, sorry. Good oils like unrefined cold-pressed coconut oil, extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil, flax seed oil, hemp seed oil, fish oils and lots of fresh raw avocados!
- Good WATER: By far, without a doubt, the most important part of a healthy diet plan! I won’t go on about the benefits of high-alkaline ionized water because you can read all about on my site and in lots of articles, but, since we are mostly water, it is essential to drink lots and good quality. Certainly the water from a water ionizer, in my opinion, is the best and has done wonders for me.
All these components, together, keep me healthy. I haven’t been sick at all in 12 years. I believe my body is alkaline and running well so that it WILL NOT support the virus causing Swine Flu, any flu or cold virus. And maybe I’ll live to 120!
It takes work, and a bit of money, but these components can be yours, and you can be on the road to being healthy, staying healthy and avoiding Swine Flu!
