Introduction

My story began back in the past ,I was involved in making compost.

One has to get the compost analyzed for it to be registered for selling to the public.

This is were I was introduced to the nutrients that exist in compost and soil ,learning what constitutes a good or bad compost and soil.

Then moving on I was farming and managing Gary Player`s Blair Athol Estate. He is a world renowned golfer.

Here I joined the Organic Society of South Africa , applying as many of the organic farming principals as possible. Seeing the results first hand, a chef made a comment that the vegetables tasted much better.

It was in this time that I learned about the interaction of micro organisms and humus in the soil and how they help the absorption of the nutrients into plants.

I eventually also learned how important the ph of the soil and water were.

Ph controls the absorption of fertilizer and nutrients from the soil to the plants.

One can apply all the fertilizer required for plants to grow, but if the ph is to acidic or to alkaline then ,the applied fertilizer lies dormant instead of being used. If one fertilizer is applied in exess then it can lock or prevent other fertilizers from being absorbed.

The same goes for the human body ph controls nutrient absorption and hence this is were sickness comes in. We are either Acidic = sick or Alkaline = healthy.

If the soil ph is not between 5.5 & 6.8 then no matter how much fertilizer one applies ,it cannot be absorbed into the plants. (organic humus must be present )

This is why you see farmers applying Lime to the fields to correct the soil ph. Of late the practice of no till, eg ploughing crop residue back into the soil.

The interesting thing is IF the soil lacks nutrition then the plant, vegetables will not be nutritious .

The body`s ph try`s to stay at a ph of 7.365

Then after harvest the nutrient diminish, cooking kills essential enzymes, like does microwaving. (enzymes are the building blocks for cell health)

So this is were my search for health begins. After much reading about what is termed healthy eating I came across a book called the phMiricale by Dr Robert O Young. This research made sense as I understood the ph in soil.

Join me as I show you what I have learned over the years.

After loads of reading I came across Dr Robert O Youngs book called the phMiricale ,research on how the ph affects one`s health. The ph is a determination of three things ,it works on a scale of 0-7-14 , 7 is balance. Going from 7 to 0 is getting more acidic and 7 going to 14 is getting alkaline. You will see that our modern day lifestyle and Fast foods ,Processed foods and the water (yes water) can course us to be Acidic.

Medical history

Mainstream medicine believes that virtually all illness is caused by germs or genetic

Hereditary weakness, as well as deformities and trauma injuries. Their solution and strategy is to have us believe that there are over 10,000 different diseases and that each of these diseases requires outside intervention from drugs and surgery. The truth is that most illness is due to cellular malfunction caused by cellular toxicities and cellular malnutrition, both of which can be avoided and overcome naturally.

It was Louis Pasteur, the so-called “father of modern germ theory” so widely revered by mainstream medicine, who was largely responsible for germ theory being a primary precept of today`s medical practice. Few people are aware of the controversy which surrounded Pasteur in his early days or of the work of a more esteemed contemporary whose works Pasteur plagiarized and distorted. That contemporary was fellow French Academy of Sciences member Antoine Bechamp, one of France`s most prominent and active researchers and biologists whose theories and research results stood in stark opposition to Pasteur`s germ theory.

Pasteur essentially dug up the germ theory of disease and put his name on it. It wasn`t a new idea. The concept, which theorizes that many diseases are caused by germs, had actually been outlined by other people many years before. Pasteur nevertheless claimed to have “discovered” germs. Bechamp, on the other hand, proved through original research that most diseases are the result of diseased tissue and that bacteria and viruses are largely after-effects instead of causes of disease.

Antoine Bechamp was able to scientifically prove that germs are the chemical by-products and constituents of pleomorphic microorganisms enacting upon the unbalanced, malfunctioning cell metabolism and dead tissue that actually produces disease. Bechamp found that the diseased, acidic, low-oxygen cellular environment is created by a toxic/nutrient deficient diet, toxic emotions, and a toxic lifestyle. His findings demonstrate how cancer develops through the morbid changes of germs to bacteria, bacteria to viruses, viruses to fungal forms and fungal forms to cancer cells.

After some initial controversy, Pasteur`s germ theory ended up winning the day with mainstreammedicine – owing in large part to the fact that the theory enabled mainstream medicine to hugely profit from the patented drugs and treatments for fighting germs. After all, had Bechamp`s discoveries been incorporated into current medical curriculum, it would likely have meant a virtual elimination of disease and the end of the pharmaceutical industry.

The germ theory of medicine stands in stark contrast to thousands of years of man looking to nature to nourish and heal it, dating back to ancient Chinese medicine which treated the whole body instead of the symptoms of illness. As Hippocrates, “the father of medicine” observed 2400 years ago, “Nature is the physician of man.” Hippocrates also advised, “Leave your drugs in the chemist`s pots if you can cure your patient with food.”

Though mainstream medicine might have us believe otherwise, the simple truth is that no one ever became ill due to a deficiency in pharmaceutical drugs. Lack of nutrition combined with exposure to toxins is what causes us to become ill.

Someday, germ theory and unnatural drugs will be relegated to the science junk pile where they belong and man will re-discover the value of eating a nutrient-dense organic diet, avoiding toxins and nutritional deficiencies and living a healthy lifestyle. When that happens, the words of Thomas Edison may prove to be a welcome prophesy:

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”

What makes one sick


The New Biology, most simply stated, is the fact that the over-acidification of the body is the single underlying cause of all disease. In contrast, the old biology, based on the work of Louis Pasteur in the late 1800s, stems from the idea that disease comes from germs which invade the body from the outside. I have found that when the body is in healthy alkaline balance, germs are unable to get a foothold.

Think of your body as a fish tank. Think of the importance of maintaining the integrity of the internal fluids of the body that we swim in daily. Imagine the fish in this tank are your cells and organ systems bathed in fluids, which transport food and remove wastes.

Now imagine we back up a car and put the tailpipe up against the air intake filter that supplies the oxygen for the water in the tank. The water becomes filled with carbon monoxide, lowering the alkaline pH, creating and acidic pH environment, and threatening the health of the fish, your cells and organs.

What if we throw in too much food or the wrong kind of food (acid-producing food like dairy, sugar, and animal protein) and the fish are unable to consume or digest it all, and it starts to decompose and putrefy? Toxic acid waste and chemicals build up as the food breaks down, creating more acidic byproducts, altering the optimum alkaline pH.

Basically, this is a small example of what we may be doing to our internal fluids every day. We are fouling them with pollution (smoking), drugs, excessive intake of food, over-consumption of acid-forming foods (dairy food, sugar, animal protein), and any number of transgressions which compromise the delicate balance of our internal alkaline fluids.

Some of us have fish tanks (bodies) that are barely able to support life, yet we somehow manage to struggle from day to day, building more severe imbalances until there is the inevitable crash and debilitating chronic, disturbing and disorganizing symptoms to deal with.

The pH level (the acid-alkaline measurement) of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are not well tolerated by the body. Indeed, the entire metabolic process depends on a balanced internal alkaline environment. A chronically over-acidic pH corrodes body tissue, slowly eating into the 60,000 miles of veins and arteries like acid eating into marble. If left unchecked, it will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain.

In summary, over-acidification interferes withou’re Not Sick, You’re Thirsty

Is the answer to our current health care crisis as simple as drinking half your bodyweight a day in alkaline water with a teaspoon of pure, colloidal pHlavor sea salt? It sounds too easy doesn’t it? However, the passage from Corinthians makes it clear that what man thinks is best or correct is generally foolishness to God. Think about it for a moment. Trillions of dollars are being made annually worldwide when it comes to health care. Pharmaceutical companies have billions of people literally hooked on drugs that do absolutely nothing to cure their health problems.

Scientists, doctors and researchers are all in search of the magic bullet cure that they think will be found in some synthetic concoction they come up with. Might they all be looking in the wrong places?

Everyone knows that alkaline water is the source of all life on earth. NASA scientists send space probes around the universe in search of water because they know that if they can find water, life on other planets is possible. Why is it that something as simple as consuming more alkaline water is not considered when it comes to treating or preventing dis-ease? Every single cell of our body runs on alkaline water. Cells are the bricks and mortar of our chemical make up. Our respiratory and circulatory systems require alkaline water to function. The simple fact is without adequate hydration we would be dead. Could it be that the manifestation of dis-ease symptoms is really your body’s cry for alkaline water and the 75 to 80 minerals needed in the form of pure, unprocessed colloidal sea salt like pHlavor?

  1. Sort out our Mind


THINKING

95% of the illnesses that plague us today are a direct result of our thought life. What we think about affects us physically and emotionally. It’s an epidemic of toxic emotions.

The average person has over 30,000 thoughts a day. Through an uncontrolled thought life, we create the conditions for illness; we make ourselves sick! Research shows that fear, all on its own, triggers more than 1,400 known physical and chemical responses and activates more than 30 different hormones. There are INTELLECTUAL and MEDICAL reasons to FORGIVE! Toxic waste generated by toxic thoughts causes the following illnesses: diabetes, cancer, asthma, skin problems and allergies to name just a few. Consciously control your thought life and start to detox your brain!

Medical research increasingly points to the fact that thinking and consciously controlling your thought life is one of the best ways, if not the best way of detoxing your brain. It allows you to get rid of those toxic thoughts and emotions that can consume and control your mind.

Change in your thinking is essential to detox the brain. Consciously controlling your thought life means not letting thoughts rampage through your mind. It means learning to engage interactively with every single thought that you have, and to analyse it before you decide either to accept or reject it.

How do you go about doing that? By “looking” at your mental processes. That may sound like a strange, if not impossible thing to do. After all, it’s not as if you can just crack open your skull like an egg and have a look at what is going on inside your brain.

It is possible, however, to look at your mental processes. In fact, it is not just possible, it is essential.

For example consider the following:

If you answered yes even to just one of these, your thought life needs detoxing right now.

A potential pitfall on the path towards detoxing your brain is the fact that toxic thoughts come in many guises. On the surface, a thought like “I must do well” seems positive enough. It is only when you look at it closely, and check out the feelings it generates and their effects on your body and mind, that you will be able to judge fairly and squarely if this is a thought that serves you well.

If you base your thought life on assumptions like the above the foundations will be shaky and the edifice (your body mind) that you create thereafter will be highly unstable. As you think more toxic thoughts and generate more toxic emotions, that edifice will show cracks, cave in and eventually collapse altogether as burgeoning illness and disease takes hold.

Right off, you need to ditch unrealistic thinking and keep in mind some key principles to kick-start the process of controlling toxic thoughts:
Thoughts create your moods
When you experience a fear-based emotion you will feel depressed and your thoughts will be characterised by negativity
A negative thought linked to emotional turmoil will be distorted
“…bringing all thoughts into captivity to Christ Jesus” (2 Corinthians 10:5) becomes the golden rule of safe thinking

The process of “bringing all thoughts into captivity”

There are four simple techniques involved:

  1. Understanding that thoughts are real and have an actual anatomy
    Thoughts are real things: they have a structure in your brain and occupy space. Thoughts are the same as memories. Thoughts and memories look like trees and are called neurons or nerve cells. You build a double memory of everything as a mirror image of each other. This means that the memory on the left side of the brain builds from the detail to the big picture; and the memory on the right side builds from the big picture to the detail. When you put these two perspectives of thought together, you get intelligent understanding taking place. As information comes in from the five senses, you process it in certain structures of your brain, then you grow branches on the “trees” to hold this information in long term memory. In fact, as you reading this, you are growing thoughts, because, thoughts are the result of what we hear and read and see and feel and experience. This means that whatever you grow is part of you, actual branches in your brain that create your attitude and influence your decisions.
  2. Increasing conscious awareness of your thoughts and how you are feeling.
    Knowledge of the anatomy of thought naturally leads into the process of actively analysing incoming information and thoughts constantly. You should never let a thought or thoughts roam chaotically and unchecked through your head. Examine every thought you have and ask yourself: is this good for me? Is it from God or the devil or my own confused thinking? Conscious awareness of your thinking should become like a habit. A habit takes twenty-one days to create. Today is the first day of that twenty-one…
  3. Doing something once you have analysed the thought.
    So, whilst technique two is developing a conscious awareness of what you are thinking about. Now technique three is doing something about the thought. This means making a conscious decision to actively accept the thought (if it is good for you) or reject it (if it is bad for you). This means you use your God-given ability of free will (this also has actual structural position in the brain) to do something about the thought you are consciously aware of. Thoughts have as much control as we give them.
  4. Building new memories over the old.
    This is the really exciting part in dealing with our thought life because, accepting or rejecting the thought is changing the neural circuitry of your brain: you brain is growing while you think and you have control over the process. Technique four happens when the brain steps in and creates a structural representation of what you have chosen to accept (adds more branches on the tree) and converts what you have chosen to reject into hot air!
  1. Lets see how these four techniques work if you have an unforgiveness in your memory trees towards someone:
  2. Technique one: this unforgiveness looks like a thorn tree and will hurt you – visualize the twisted bitter thorn tree.
  3. Technique two: be consciously aware of this thought of unforgiveness – where it comes from, how long it has been there, and so on.
  4. Technique three: ask the Holy Spirit to help you use your free will to make the wisdom decision to reject unforgiveness and forgive. Picture the unforgiveness disappearing as hot air.
  5. Technique four: now build a new de-thorned memory to replace the thorny unforgiveness with for example, quoting scriptures, singing a worship song, praying for the person, and so on.

Fear will tell us we should be free right now, but we may not be ready yet. Maybe God wants to grow us more, mature us more, and we have not been perfected yet. We must trust God to grow us up, because He wants to! Fear will not let that happen. Remember, we must expect for there to be a measure of time to pass before we receive. Fear drives, but faith leads. We must take our peace today about where we are at in this area of our lives.

Taking Responsibility Defeats Rejection

Rejection always blames someone else; it never takes responsibility for its own actions. We are children of God and we have the right to be works in progress. Everyone makes mistakes, but they do not define who we are. Let’s take the challenge to take responsibility for our actions, good or bad, and move forward.

Take Inventory of Our Lives

We have to look at ourselves in two-way mirrors. We must not point the finger at someone else, because we will have three more pointing back at us. Let’s look at it both ways and judge ourselves. The Word says if we judge ourselves, God will not have to judge us. We have an opportunity to start looking into our own spirits and see if anything other than God is part of our lives. God can deliver us from those things. Let’s take the challenge to do inventory in our own lives.

We Have to See Things through God’s Eyes

We have to have faith for ourselves and for others. We are all in a state of changing into a beautiful shade of lighter gray day by day. If we are children of God and have the Holy Spirit working with us, we are being changed from our old nature into our new nature. We have to have faith to see other people and ourselves through God’s eyes, and be patient and gracious with each other and ourselves in shortcomings. We must take our peace in knowing we are all being changed from glory to glory.

Love Is Who We Were Created To Be

Love is patient. Love is kind. Love forgives all things. Love hopes all things. Love is merciful. Love is tender. Love covers a multitude of sins. Let’s practice being love to all men today, to those who have hurt us, those who love us, and those who do not deserve it. We love because He first loved us.

And Having Done All, Stand!

When we have overcome in an area of our life, our enemy will come back to tempt us. Be aware of what is really going on! We have the Word of God to stand on against the attacks of temptation! We must fight back and keep our peace today.

Our Body Responds To Our Thoughts

Did you know that Fear can produce pain in our bodies? We can also accelerate pain levels by thinking about it. Our bodies are responders to our thinking. Pain is not an emotional or soulish expression, nor is it a spiritual expression. Pain is a physiological expression. Although pain is a physical reality, it can be caused by a spirit, or by our thoughts. In the Bible, stress is referred to as Fear or being anxious. We are to “fear not” and be anxious for nothing. Fear, anxiety and stress are synonymous terms. Let’s take our thoughts captive by taking no thought fortomorrow, and trusting God to take care of us.

Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

  1. Exercise

Let’s Do it!

Exercise:

It increases your dopamine levels immediately. Dopamine

increases your desire to exercise increasing

the energy

in your body.

The more you exercise, the more

you cause age reversal

as your body and hormones start to

think it is young again, reversing the death cycle signals.

Just 30 minutes

of exercise

a day will start to reverse the

aging

process

and increase

dopamine

levels. Exercise will

reduce cortisol and stress, strengthening the immune system.

It increases

circulation

to the skin cleansing the pores

through perspiration.

Exercise also increases

muscle-fat ratio,

increases

bone density

reducing risk of injury, and helps sexual

dysfunction—

increasing blood flow to the organs. As I

mentioned before, your body does not know the difference

between

past, present, and future. The way you see things and

act is the way the body responds. Make sure you are doing

different

types of exercise such as cardiovascular (walking/

running), weights, and so on.

Supplements that will help increase dopamine are: Tyrosine,

grape seed or pine bark, gingko biloba along with vitamin C and

E and other antioxidants. They help increase dopamine as well as

blood flow and energy, focus, and impulse control.

Foods that increase dopamine are almonds, avocados,

bananas,

raw dairy products, lima beans, pumpkin seeds, and

sesame seeds. Avoid foods such as sugar, and refined foods along

with saturated fats and cholesterol as they interfere with proper

brain function and can cause low dopamine levels.

The simplest, most effective and most enjoyable way to increase your cellular

energy, oxygen levels and lymph flow are deep breathing and bio-electric

rebounding.

Deep Breathing

). The simplest

way to absorb this energy is to practice continuous, connected breathing – in

breath following an out breath, following an in breath etc. A simple rhythm to

follow is 4 shorter breaths followed by a slow, deep breath, repeated 4 times to

make 20 connected breaths. This will greatly boost your energy and circulation.

In addition, deep breathing can increase the amount of oxygen absorbed by you

blood by as much as 15 times. It will also open the lymph ducts and empty your

lymph back into your bloodstream (returning the lost blood protein). To get the

most benefit, take 5 to 10 slow, deep breaths every hour.

Bio-Electric Rebounding

Recognised as a miracle exercise, rebounding is the most powerful way to

stimulate your whole body lymph circulation, increasing flow by up to 20 times.

Just 2 minutes of gentle bouncing, with deep breathing can flush your entire

lymph system and triple your immune cell count.

It can also increase cell oxygenation by as much as 4 times, while strengthening

every single cell in your body. Rebounding can be safely used by people of all

ages and all health conditions; however, it is essential that you use a good

quality, ‘Soft Bounce’ rebounder to protect your ankles, knees and lower back.

Rebounding in the Earth’s natural magnetic field also boosts your body’s bioelectricity,

which (with the right understanding), can be used to target any part of

your body, to clear trapped, clustered blood protein. Always start slowly and drink

a small glass of water after every bounce, to dilute and flush released toxins.

ORGANIC PURE GRASS JUICE

Organic pure grass juices like wheatgrass, barley grass and alfalfa

deliver high concentrations of valuable nutrients including

vitamins, minerals, naturally occurring enzymes, and chlorophyll.

Moreover, this alkalinizing effect will promote healthy pH

balance in the body. Typical diets that include processed foods

like white flour and sugar, coffee, and soft drinks cause a pH

imbalance in the body and become too acidic. Too much acid

in one’s body will decrease the body’s ability to absorb nutrients

and minerals, decrease the energy production in cells, and

make the body more susceptible to illness and fatigue. Therefore,

maintaining a healthy pH balance is necessary for optimal

health and wellness. Wheat grass alone is so powerful not to

mention the other grasses but let’s look at a few benefits of wheat

grass.

Blood Benefits

Wheatgrass and organic pure grass juice tablets may help clean

the blood of impurities. It is said to increase the red blood cell

Foods That Heal 77

count and lower blood pressure. Wheatgrass may also encourage

the body’s metabolism and enzymes to work more efficiently and

increase blood flow.

Stomach Disorders

Wheatgrass tablets have been used to treat diarrhea, constipation,

colitis and certain ulcers. It is also suggested for stomach

pain and distress.

Turn Back the Clock

Wheatgrass tablets may help restore gray hair to its natural

color. It is also used as a kind of youth tonic to help keep the

body young, alert, energized and fit. Some say it enhances fertility

in both men and women.

Anti-Inflammatory

Wheatgrass tablets contain the enzyme SOD, which claims to reduce

the harsh side effects of radiation. This enzyme is also useful

in protecting cell damage, especially after a heart attack.

Fight Tumors and Toxins

Wheatgrass tablets may be able to ward of toxins and even fight

tumors. The compounds found in wheatgrass help cleanse the

blood and counteract toxins that may invade the body. Because

I travel often and don’t always have the time to make it nor do

I always like the taste of liquid grass juices like wheat grass but

love the incredible results they bring to my immune system I take

them in organic tablet form from SuperHealth. Their 100% organic

and vegan Pure Grass Juice tablets that I personally take

contains a proprietary “superfood” blend of the best of the best

grass juices like alfalfa, barley, kamut, oat, and wheat grass juices

to deliver all the best potent concentrations of key vitamins, minerals,

and nutrients.
