The body shows signs of illness as a reaction to toxic matters entering the system. The body itself has an innate ability to cure itself, and with healthy nourishment it maintains perfect health. The body is a living organism that functions in three basic stages to stay alive. Apart from breathing; eating, digesting and excreting are the three main systems that regulate basic health in the body. It is obvious that the body depends on the quality of food we put into it. Food that contains chemicals or toxins that would affect the well being of the body systems will cause illness in the body. It is understandable that so many chronic illnesses can be cured by returning our diet to an all organic vegetable based diet. The innate healing system of the body returns the body to its natural state of homeostasis in a short period of time. Within only four weeks the arteries, organs and body systems return to a healthy state. Everyone should be performing this natural healthy cleansing.
A vegetable juice and organic vegetables diet is proven effective in the cure of cancer, and the cure for all other chronic Illnesses. These include Diabetes, MS, Crohn's and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Obesity, Heart illness, Cholesterol, high blood pressure, and more.
A vegetable diet will cure innumerable illnesses within a short period of time, and will go farther, to reverse all illnesses in the body. The common thing on all vegetable based diets is the amount of energy people experienced after the initial few days of detoxification, as well as common weight loss, renewed blood pressure, and totally healthy medical tests that led in all cases to discontinuation of all medications. In all cases all illnesses disappear in a short period of time. Ultimately, the cure to all illness is in the food we consume.
Our Western medical system works with medication and rarely are medical doctors trained on nutrition. By law they are not allowed to practice holistic medical therapy and are only allowed to treat cancer with radiation and chemotherapy. This is the law as set in the United States. Doctors will lose their medical licence if they suggest holistic treatment to his patients. This is a frustrating system since chemotherapy is poisonous to the body, and while being effective destroying certain malignant cells, it creates other conditions that affect the immune system. Recovery through chemotherapy is rare.
In 1936 Doctor Max Gerson published a book that recorded the cure of about 450 cancer patients. His work continues today with clinics in Mexico and Holland. His cure is based on a vegetable diet, vitamin supplements and other natural products.
I have enjoyed a Vegan diet for the past six months that has changed my belief systems about protein and the necessity to include meat and dairy to maintain good protein and calcium intake. A Vegan diet allows for as much as you can eat of vegetables, grains, and nuts. It took a few weeks for me to realize the wealth of possibilities these three groups of foods include. It took for me to input all my food intake for a day into a calorie counting program at www.myfitness.com to realize that by being in this diet I am still getting all the nutrients, calcium, and protein i need. It is a matter of education about these three groups of foods that is needed to change our erroneous perception that animal protein is the only source of protein we have, or that dairy is the only source of calcium. We need to learn about the real nutritional value of these groups of foods, to let go of the fictitious belief that animal products are the only source of protein and calcium. As a matter of fact, our bodies are allergic to animal byproducts and ingested in larger than 5% in our diet, have been found to be directly proportional to the rate of breast cancer, as well as prostate and other chronic illnesses. If you are interested in these facts, please take the time to watch the food documentaries available in Netflix, or Youtube.
Why Drinking Green Juices Promote Weight Loss
Thylakoids in leafy greens promote weight loss by controlling hunger hormones and decreasing insulin, making them an excellent natural appetite suppressant.
COCONUT OIL AS A CURE FOR Alzheimer’s disease:
Dr. Newport’s website:
And while coconut oil is encouraging in the battle against Alzheimer’s disease, there’s something even more powerful available—but at a price. A team of biochemists led by Professor Kieran Clarke at England’s Oxford University have developed a ketone ester that packs a punch ten times greater than coconut oil. "It reaches quite considerably higher levels," said Clarke, "and you can get whatever levels you want depending on how much you drink." The problem is, they need millions of dollars to mass-produce it. "It’s very expensive. And so we can’t make very much of it ourselves," said Clarke, "And what we would like is funding so we could actually scale up and make it. But of course there’s no real profit in manufacturing stuff like that, and so people really don’t want to fund that sort of thing."
So until a high-potency ketone ester is available to the general public, coconut oil is still a good ketone source. Just make sure it’s pure, in other words, non-hydrogenated. Avoid any hydrogenated oil, including hydrogenated coconut oil, because hydrogenated oils are the same thing as dangerous trans fats. Look on the list of ingredients for the word "hydrogenated."
INCREASE YOUR GOOD CHOLESTEROL WITH COCONUT OIL:
Some people are afraid to eat coconut oil because they think it’s bad for your heart. But it’s actually very healthy. Dr. Beverly Teter, a lipid biochemist, is a researcher at the University of Maryland who specializes in the area of dietary fat. She says years ago coconut oil was criticized for raising cholesterol. But scientists have since learned there are two kinds of cholesterol: LDL, the bad kind, and HDL, which is very good for you, and is the kind coconut oil raises. "So they put out the message that it increased serum cholesterol," explained Dr. Teter, "but the truth of the matter is, it was helping the profile of the serum cholesterol. That never has been corrected in the public press, and I think that’s the reason people have misconceptions about it."
BEYOND ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE
Not only does coconut oil improve cholesterol levels, but Dr. Teter says the way it helps the brains of some Alzheimer’s patients can be extended to people with Parkinson’s disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), epilepsy, dementia, and even schizophrenia and autism.
COCONUT OIL - A NATURAL ANTIBIOTIC
Coconut oil is a natural antibiotic but without the negative side effects. Dr. Teter says because of that, it can also help defend against viruses like HIV and herpes viruses. "The coconut oil tends to keep the bacteria down so that if you’re assaulted with a virus your immune system can concentrate on the virus. It doesn’t have to concentrate on 27 other bacteria that day," she explained.
HAVE OTHERS EXPERIENCED IMPROVEMENTS?
Since the St. Petersburg Times published Dr. Newport’s article "What If There Was a Cure for Alzheimer’s Disease and No One Knew?" on October 29, 2008, she has received many reports from caregivers about their loved ones, and has also read on various forums and online message boards about people who have had dramatic improvements like Steve. They include such improvements as: better social interaction, better recognition of loved ones, improved conversation, resumption of activities, better appetite, better sleep, having more energy and being more talkative. Many others experience more subtle improvement or very gradual improvement that turns into very significant improvement over several months. Others feel they see no change, but their loved one has at least stabilized and not worsened. Several people have e-mailed Dr. Newport telling her that until they stopped taking the coconut oil, they did not realize how much the oil was helping them. Dr. Newport recommends that caretakers keep a journal, so that they can decide months down the road if there has been improvement.
She has also heard from some people with diseases other than Alzheimer’s who believe they have seen some improvements, including other forms of dementia (FTD, CBD), Parkinson’s, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s), Huntington’s, MS, bipolar disease, even glaucoma and macular degeneration (which affect neurons).
Dr. Newport has received many thank-you letters from people whose loved ones with Alzheimer’s were helped after they followed Steve’s diet. Dr. Newport explained the overall eating plan she and her husband follow in addition to adding coconut and MCT oils to their daily diet: "We adhere to a ‘whole food’ diet, and avoid processed foods, and reduce carbohydrate intake overall. We eat fish several times a week; poultry, occasional beef, fresh, or fresh frozen, fruits and vegetables; whole grain bread, rice or pasta (relatively small amounts); eggs, whole dairy, goat milk/cheese, coconut oil and coconut milk. For lunch meats we eat ‘all natural’ brands that have no artificial color or preservatives. We buy organic, cage-free, or free-range whenever possible. We do have the occasional treat but overall we stick with this program." Dr. Newport adds, "Using coconut oil capsules is not an efficient way to give the oil since the capsules are relatively expensive and contain only 1 gram of oil per capsule, whereas the oil is 14 grams per tablespoon."
STEVE’S OTHER SUPPLEMENTS:
In addition to taking coconut/MCT oil, Steve also takes a combination of fish oil and cod liver oil (rich in vitamins A and D). It’s been shown that people with Alzheimer’s disease as a group are deficient in DHA (an omega-3 fatty acid) and DHA is a large component of the brain and crucial to its normal functioning. Dr. Newport referred to a study that showed that people with Alzheimer’s may be deficient in an enzyme in the liver that converts the shorter vegetable form of omega-3 fatty acids found in soybean and flax oils to the DHA and EPA forms of omega-3 fatty acids needed by the brain and other organs. Therefore she believes that it is important to include a marine source of omega-3 fatty acids in the diet. She recommends an algae form marketed to pregnant women, available in pharmacies, to those who have a problem taking fish oil. Coconut oil contains some omega-6, but no omega-3 fatty acids.
INCORPORATING COCONUT OIL INTO YOUR DIET
According to Dr. Newport, coconut oil can be substituted for any solid or liquid oil, lard, butter or margarine in baking or cooking on the stove, and can be mixed directly into foods already prepared. Some people take it straight with a spoon, but for most people it may be hard to swallow this way and more pleasant to take with food. When cooking on the stove, coconut oil smokes if heated to greater than 350 degrees F. or medium heat. You can avoid this problem by adding a little olive or peanut oil. Coconut oil can be used at any temperature in the oven when mixed in foods.
Coconut milk is a combination of the oil and the water from the coconut and most of the calories are from the oil. Look for brands with 10 to 13 grams of fat in 2 ounces. Look in the grocery store’s Asian section. Some brands are less expensive but are diluted with water. Coconut cream is mostly coconut milk and sometimes has added sugar. Flaked or grated coconut can be purchased unsweetened or sweetened and is a very good source of coconut oil and fiber and has about 15 grams oil and 3 grams fiber in ¼ cup. Frozen or canned coconut meat usually has a lot of added sugar and not much oil per serving. A fresh coconut can be cut up into pieces and eaten raw. A 2" x 2" piece has about 160 calories with 15 grams of oil and 4 grams of fiber. MCT Oil (medium-chain triglycerides) are part of the coconut oil and can also be purchased in some health food stores or online. This may be useful for people who are on the go and do not have much time to cook. Also, MCT oil is used as energy and not stored as fat, so it may be useful for someone who wants to lose weight, if substituted for some of the other fats in the diet. Coconut water does not usually contain coconut oil, but has other health benefits. The electrolyte composition is similar to human plasma and is useful to prevent or treat dehydration."

THE IMPORTANCE OF ORGANIC VEGETABLES AND FRUITS
Learn What Fruit Stickers Mean
When buying food, we look at the label to make smarter choices. But when it comes to fruits and vegetables, and since they don’t have a label, the choosing becomes a little harder. Well, that little sticker on fruits or vegetables that don’t come in a package has a lot of useful information. It tells you whether they have been conventionally grown, or are organic, or if they have been genetically modified. This is important information if we keep in mind that 7 out of every 10 items in grocery store shelves contain genetically modified ingredients.
The little sticker is called PLU code which stands for Price Look Up Code. These codes have been in use since 1990, and there are over 1300 universal PLU codes assigned. But they all follow some general guidelines, here they are:
- 4 digits and begin with a 3 or a 4: produce is conventionally grown. This means that this produce was been sprayed with weed killers and chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
- 5-digits and start with an 8: produce was genetically engineered or genetically modified. This means the produce’s genes were genetically altered to produce bigger, or faster growing, or better looking produces. Needless to say, this process is detrimental to the produce, and very dangerous to your health. Read the 4 tips to avoid GMO to learn more.
- 5-digits and start with a 9: produce was raised organically. These are produces that have not been treated with chemicals and that haven’t been genetically manipulated. These are the safest produces out there.
To illustrate the code use, here is an example:
- 3440: Conventionally grown Pomegranate
- 83440: Genetically Modified (GMO) Pomegranate
- 93440: Organically grown Pomegranate
Now to review and keep in mind, if it starts with an 8, stay away from it, it is man made, or man messed around with to be more precise. These produces benefit only the pocket of the company producing them. Their nutritional value has been altered and very much diminished, and they pose serious health treats to you.
If possible, one should try to eat everything organic. But since this is not always possible for different reasons, it is good to keep in mind which produces are more prone to absorb chemicals and pesticides, and so are recommended to be eaten organic. These produces are called the “dirty dozen”, and are:
- Sweet bell peppers
- Spinach, kale and collard greens
On the other hand, the 15 produces that are considered the “cleanest” and that could be bought conventional are:
- Sweet corn
- Sweet peas
- Kiwi fruit
- Sweet potatoes
- Sweet onions
I hope you liked the information presented, and I hope it will be of help the next time you go grocery shopping
