My Philosophy on Health

My philosophy is based on the basic principle that nothing is more essential to health and healing than proper diet. When the body is balanced, it is in a self healing mode. When it is out of balance, it is on the degenerative disease path.

Many factors influence this path towards health, including exercise, cleansing the body of toxins, and the foods we eat. When we change our diet and eat whole foods the way they are found in nature - and not processed foods full of chemicals and preservatives - the body is fed at the cellular level. The result is health, well being, and restored vitality.

The Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) consists primarily of meat, dairy, white flour, white sugar and caffeine. These foods are all acid foods that contribute to the rise in heart disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity. Disease lives in an acid environment. When we eat foods that are more alkaline like fruits and vegetables, the chemistry of our body changes and we are much less susceptible to disease.

When we focus on building our immune system with a healthy lifestyle, our body is better able to resist disease. On his death bed, Louis Pasteur, the father of the Germ Theory said, "The microbe is nothing, the terrain (internal environment) is everything."

We need to shift our focus from disease care to preventative health care. This is achieved by living a healthy lifestyle. Our choice of foods is a big part of that equation.
