7 Basic steps for a better personal health

June 3, 2009

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.

    Intressant!
    Några frågor: Vad är din syn/erfarenhet om rapsolja som ok olja att laga mat med? Äter nästan inte gris eller nötkött men en hel del kyckling… Organisk youghurt, varthän kan man köpa det?

      rapsolja: vet inte än men har läst att det inte är så bra som alla vill framställa det som (kan vara mkt genmanipulerat bl a): kolla denna länken
      http://www.naturalnews.com/026365_canola_oil_food_health.html, eller peter wilhelmssons näringsmedicinska uppslagsbok. Jag skall kolla upp det närmare, och återkommer gärna till dig, och återkom gärna till mig om du läser någonting av intresse ang rapsolja.
      tills du är säker använd istället coconötsolja som tål höga temperaturer, eller Ghee, klarnat smör, http://www.ehdin.com/?id=1428,
      bra att du undviker gris, organisk youghurt (arla, skånemejerier) finns överallt, ekoaffärer: fram på nordenskiöldsgatan och ekostore mitt emot biljardhallen, ekelundsgatan. ha d gött. F
