7 Basic steps for a better personal health
1. Stop eating hydrogenated oils!
They hinder normal cellular processes and subsequently cause diseases like heart disease and cancer. Avoid french fries, margarine, crackers, cookies, pre-fried noodles, pastries, candy bars. Throw out all hydrogenated oils from the fridge and cupboard. Instead chose olive oil, hemp oil, coconut oil and avocado.
2. Get your stomach working!
See to that you have enough stomach acid and good bacteria culture in your intestines. Use probiotics, kimchi, saurkraut, organic youghurt etc. Eat food rich in fibres: greens, beans, nuts, grains.
3. Get a good PH balance!
Remember that disease thrive in an acidic environment. Radically increase your daily consumption of fresh organic greens and fruit. Check out charts, ex dried figs are very alkaline. Cut down on cheese, grains, egg and meat, which are very acidic.
4. Choose only organic greens, vegetables, fruits and nuts.
Their nutritional content is mostly much higher, so nutrition wise you will save money choosing better quality. And you don’t want to eat conventionally produced red peppers and grapes, where deeply unethical agricultural companies can use up to 50 or more different kinds of pesticides just to stay under the allowed levels of each.
5. Drink plenty of pure water, 1-2 litres a day.
Get a water filter if you’re unsure of your water quality. Thirst is not an adequate indicator of hydration, signs of dehydration can be: dry lips, fatigue, difficulty to concentrate.
6. Maximize nutrition!
Try to prepare your food maximizing nutrition instead of losing it. Try to eat 75 % raw and 25 % cooked food. Steam, bake or slow boil your food instead of frying. If you fry use lower temperature and use coconut oil which tolerates high temperatures better.
7. Other non-food related factors for better health:
Regular exercise, adequate sleep, stress down, avoid toxins like tobacco, alcohol, “dirty” hygiene & cosmetic products etc, and finally get some sunshine for Vitamin-D among other things.
