Prevention and self care are key to well-being. Epidemiological studies estimate 50% of Americans alive now will get cancer, and that could also apply to Canadians. According to the Animal Cancer Foundation, 12 million new cancers are diagnosed in dogs and cats each year, which means 1 out of 3 will die of Cancer. Take charge of your health and the health of your family and animal friends through respect, knowledge and understanding of the physical and emotional bodies and our etheric reality.
Eating and living with the seasons is one of the best means of dis-ease prevention and self care. Eating with the seasons allows your body's systems to be strong in that season and prepare you for the next season to come. Foods that are abundant and grown locally or in your garden are the foods to focus on.
Eating food rich in antioxidants, knowing their flavours, eating locally and in the season are great ways to strengthen your body, especially the liver and digestion system.
A balanced diet would include majority of sweet and pungent foods with a
nice blend of sour, bitter and salty. This is a great way for prevention and self care.
Sweet flavour comes from most vegetables, animal protein, nuts, seeds, fruit and whole grains (quinoa, brown rice).
All foods contain at least 2 or more flavours. An excessive amount of any flavour may cause an imbalance.
The Liver a Key Role in Most Metabolic Processes Especially Detoxification
The liver is constantly being invaded with caustic both naturally produced internally and coming externally from the environment. It is the external invaders we need to be concerned with. In today’s world we are being bombarded with chemicals.
Look into the sky and you’ll see chemicals being sprayed on us in the name of “The Weather Modification Program”; two of which have been identified as barium and aluminum.
If you live in the city you may
find fluoride (hydrofluorosilicic acid) a unpurified industrial
by-product that is collected in the air pollution control systems of
certain industries, and chlorine used to control unhealthy bacteria in
the drinking and bathing water.
There is a myriad of chemicals used on commercially grown fruits and vegetables, as well as in the soil. Today, the soil also lacks essential minerals and trace minerals needed in our produce for optimum health. Also, we are contending with GMO (genetically modified organism) seeds, commercial factory farming, and the feeding of GMO grains to animals, and the use of antibiotics and some growth hormones. All this causes free radical damage.
Knowing your health; learn about yourself and your body's systems is prevention and self care.
Sweet is subdivided into:
Pungent Flavour (acrid, spicy, hot, aromatic)
Salt has been around for over 250 million years, and humans have been using salt as far back as 6050 BC. Salts are helpful for all biological activities and have the most “grounding” descending activity of any substance used as food.
Purchase complex salts such as Himalayan crystal salt. Commercial table salt consists of only sodium chloride 97.5% and 2.5% chemicals such as moisture absorbents and iodine. Dried at over 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, the excessive heat alters the natural chemical structure of the salt.
Eating common table salt (sodium chloride) can cause unsightly cellulite, rheumatism, arthritis, gout, kidney and gallbladder stones.
