Cancer

Disease that frightens everybody out of their wits. Often perceived as a death sentence. However, this is because it is not understood that cancer does not occur suddenly out of nowhere. It is the 7th stage in a progression of bodily deterioration that takes many years of bodily abuse to develop. It might take 70 or 80 years to get to this stage of deterioration but the body will get there if incorrect living habits are persisted.

What can you do to avoid cancer:

  • Get adequate rest and sleep every day

  • Drink only distilled water if you are thirsty

  • Consume only those foods that our bodies are designed to eat and digest properly

  • Exercise every day

  • Get sunshine and fresh air on a daily basis

  • Avoid alcohol, tobacco and caffeinated substances

  • Keep chemicals away from your skin and hair and get them out of your house

  • Have a job that keeps you away from toxic chemicals

  • Stick with a raw food diet as much as possible. When you feel down rest and only take in fresh squeezed juices or distilled water for a day or twol

  • Avoid all drugs

Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are the primary source of energy for our body. They consist of Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen (must be the ates part).  Best source of carbohydrates are fresh fruits and vegetables.

Our diet should consist mostly (80%) of carbohydrates. The rest made up of protein (non-animal protein coming from nuts and seeds) and fat (non-animal fat coming from avocados and nuts/seeds).

Refined carbohydrates, e.g. white flour and sugar are incomplete foods. Essential vitamins, fibers and minerals required for metabolizing the carbohydrate are missing. They were removed in the refining process. This leads to all sorts of health problems since the body needs to withdraw minerals like calcium from its own reserves in order to metabolize the refined carbohydrate. Where is the calcium withdrawn from ? Your bones and teeth ...

Concentrated Food

Food that contains a large percentage (10 - 30% or more) of carbohydrates, protein, fat or sugar.

Some dried fruits like bananas might  contain over 80% carbohydrates.

Degenerative Diseases

Diseases that rob our bodies of vital functions and drag us deeper and deeper into a quagmire of pain and suffering. The most common degenerative diseases that afflict people today are:

  • Cancer

  • Heart Disease

  • High Cholesterol

  • High Blood Pressure

  • Stroke

  • Gastrointestinal Problems (e.g. Reflux, Diverticulitis, Constipation)

  • Obesity

The toughest thing to come to terms with is, that we are the cause of theses diseases. Our lifestyle choices (eating, drinking, exercising, sleeping) determine if we get these diseases or not. They don't fall from the sky. They are the result of many years of abusing our bodies. We did it to ourselves BUT we can also undo it (in most cases) by eliminating the abuse and starting with a healthy lifestyle.

Fats

Serve some very important purposes in the body

  • Source of energy and heat

  • Insulation and padding for the organs and nerves

  • Source of essential fatty acids

  • Aid the absorption of fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K)

Fat is absolutely necessary for the proper functioning of the body, however this does not mean that one has to eat food that is high in fat content (generally animal protein).

On the Standard American Diet people have as much as 40% of their total calorie intake in the form of fat. This is way to high and leads to all kinds of health problems (see China Study).

All 'Foods we are designed to eat' contain adequate amounts of fat to satisfy our bodies needs. Nuts, seeds and avocados are especially high in fat content. 1-2 avocados per day or up to 4 ounces (100g) of nuts/seeds per day amply satisfy the bodies need for fat but you don't have to eat nuts/seeds and/or avocados on a daily basis since all other foods you eat with this lifestyle also contain fats.

Fermented Food

A fermented food is food that has been 'carefully' spoiled. However, this careful spoiling leaves lots of undesirable waste products from the decomposition process in the food. To halt the fermentation process so that the food does not rot completely salt or vinegar is used to inhibit the growth of the bacteria in the food. We know that salt and vinegar are poisonous to the system. Combine that with the bacteria and the waste products and you have a highly undesirable food. 

Frugivores

Humans are frugivores, i.e. our bodies are designed to handle (digest) fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds most efficiently. It is the food of our biological adaptation.

Healing Crisis

Once you start on a Life Science lifestyle your body will have lots more energy for healing tasks. Not all of the body's energy has to go towards digesting incompatible food combinations and dealing with the aftermath of the toxic byproducts.

At some point in time (it could be a few weeks into the new lifestyle or it could be months later) your body will likely decide on some radical house cleaning. This usually means a high fever (to burn out toxins) that could last from a day to a few weeks.

Our son had his first healing crisis a few weeks after we started with Life Science. He ran a fever of 102 Fahrenheit for 2 straight weeks. The last 2 days he had hives all over his body.

It is extremely important not to interfere in this healing process, i.e. no drugs should be used to bring the fever down. This disrupts the healing process. The body has to redirect its energy to fighting the drug! Cold compresses should be used when the fever reaches 103 degrees to cool the head, neck and abdominal area.

The 'treatment' for the hives was to rub our son down with the juice of an organic pear. We just cut the pear in half and used the exposed surface of the pear for rubbing the skin. Relieved the itching and the hives disappeared after an hour.

After the healing crisis runs its course the body feels much better and healthier.

Honey

Just like milk is the perfect food for a calf so is honey a perfect food for bees, but not for humans.

Proteins

Proteins are combinations of amino acids. The consist of approx. 53% carbon, 22% oxygen, 17% nitrogen, 7% hydrogen and 1% sulfur and iodine.

Proteins serve two vital purposes in our body

  • Healthy Tissue Growth

  • Tissue Repair

There are two primary sources of protein

  • animal protein from meat, fish, poultry, eggs and dairy

  • plant based protein which is present in all fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds

All protein is broken down during the digestion process into amino acids and stored in the body (amino acid pool). When the body requires protein amino acid is withdrawn from the pool and reassembled for the specific use.

The US Recommended Daily Allowance - RDA for protein varies between 46 and 71 grams per day. Animal protein is listed as the preferred choice of protein, plant based protein is deemed inferior while incomplete.

Unfortunately this is not quite so. The body does not need to take in complete proteins. That's what the amino acid pool is for. The RDA is also set at least twice as high as what our body actually requires. A maximum of 30 grams of proteins per day should be consumed.

The truth is that animal protein is an extremely poor source of protein. The body needs to spend tremendous amounts of energy to break down the animal protein into useable amino acids.

This is not the case for plant based proteins.

Read The China Study by T. Colin Campbell to find out out the details why animal protein is so detrimental to human health and why plant based protein is the better choice.

Rebounding

Bouncing on a mini trampoline. Excellent exercise to flush out the lymphatic system. See Benefits of Rebounding.

Vinegar

- Injures the digestive organs
- Reduces/destroys red blood cells
- Retards the digestion and assimilation of food
