The 12 Excellent Wisdoms of Keeping Your Health In Balance
1.Fix What’s Wrong
- Take inventory, get examined, listen to your body, make a goal, take
action and check your progress. The Japanese term Kaizen means
“positive incremental progress.” To remodel your house (or your body),
the work crew needs to show up on the job site consistently to make
progress. It takes time to finish the job. Be patient.
2.Drink Good Water
– Drink ½ your body weight in oz. of H2O/Day. Get and stay hydrated.
Good references: “Your Body’s Many Cries For Water”, “You Are Not Sick,
You Are Thirsty!” by F. Batmanghlidj, M.D. Water helps decrease fatigue,
increase energy, decrease cancer risk, decrease pain and inflamation
and increase memory.
3.Control Your Blood Sugar
- Approximately 40% good carbohydrates (fruits, veggies, whole grains
& brown rice) / 30% good proteins (fish, organic meats &
fertile, free range eggs) / 30% good fats (olive oil and raw butter)
Reference: “A Week In The Zone” by Barry Sears, M.D. and “How to Eat,
Move and Be Healthy” by Paul Chek. Balanced eating gives you energy and
makes you look and feel better, shed unwanted pounds (if needed),
balances hormones and also works to avoid insulin resistance, which
leads to adult onset diabetes.
4.Chew Your Food 50 Times Per Bite
- Digestion starts in the mouth. Saliva begins breaking food down
before entering the stomach and intestines. Your teeth should work like
a blender. Sit down while you eat. One European clinic reports a
decrease in 70% of reflux, heartburn and allergy sufferers from chewing
their food and getting hydrated.
5.Eat Healthy Fats
– No Hydrogenated, Partially Hydrogenated Fats, Shortening, Margarine
or Deep Fried Foods! - Hydrogenated fats are hard to break down. They
have increased shelf life, but they shorten your life! They lead to
increased pain, inflammation, hormone imbalances and heart disease.
Remember, margarine is not a food - aspirin is not a vitamin!
6.Exercise & Flexibility
- Do your stretches or yoga and move your body daily. We have
progressive stretches and exercises - Phases I, II and III for neck, low
back, shoulder and knees. Reference: “Everyone Is An Athlete” by Phil
Maffetone and “How To Eat, Move and Be Healthy” by Paul Chek.

- Even God rested on the 7th day! Free up and have fun! When it comes
to sleep, experts still agree that 8 hours is best and some can do
less. Chinese Wisdom says that every hour before midnight that you
sleep is worth two hours after.
8.Nourish, Cleanse and Detoxify Thyself –
Remember to take your supplements. Cleansing and detoxification
programs are very important factors in healing as well as an excellent
means of preventing disease and promoting good health. The main organs
of detoxification are the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, skin, lymph,
liver and gall bladder. We have state of the art nutritional
supplements and detox releasing protocols that will help.
9.Keep your Acid/Alkaline PH Balanced,
Avoid Chemicals, Diet Drinks, Preservatives. Your salivary or urinary
ph can be determined easily with ph paper. We have a good handout as
well for balancing your ph. Reference: “Alkalinize or Die!” by
Theodore Baroody. Purchase organic fruits and vegetables if possible.
(Check Farmers Market & Trader Joes) Aspartame (NutraSweet) is a
nerve toxin. If you want more facts, get our handout “Diet Drink
Anyone”. Avoid MSG, nitrates and nitrites and other preservatives.
Preservatives like Formaldehyde preserve food and dead people.
- Beware of cell phones, computers, TV’s and microwaves. Balance these
heat producing electro magnetic field waves (EMFs) with a Biopro or
similar magnet products to minimize the electromagnetic field stress
that bombard us daily. Would you like to put your head in a microwave
and turn it on for a few minutes? Something to think about… Research
shows increased tumor production and hormone imbalance.
– Communication to and from Tissues and the Energy Flow of Acupuncture
Meridians Make sure the power is on and stays on and balanced. Your
spine houses your nervous system. Misalignments and decreased range of
motion interferes with the nerve transmission and leads to increased
pain and decreased function.
