Also, avoid addictive and destructive pollutants such as tobacco, alcohol, MSG and other flavor

enhancers, coffee and other caffeine products, refined sugar/flour products, soda, damaged fats/oils,

and fluorescent lights. In other words, STOP being a sucker for the junk food industry. Along with

creating free radicals and rapidly ageing the body, many of these pollutants dehydrate the body on an

intra-cellular level.

In addition, avoid genetically modified (GM) foods, which can cause allergies, food sensitivities, and

serious reactions because they contain animal and/or chemical genes. GE foods can also have

unknown, serious long-term consequences such as auto immune diseases.

Instead, consume a colourful variety of wholesome (preferably organic) real food, which is minimally processed and grown in fertile soil. Each mineral is represented by different colours. Real food nourishes and promotes growth. Man made concoctions and imitation products are not real food, they are pollutants, which destroy the body and are often addictive. To better understand where your food comes from, see the award winning documentaries “Food Inc” and “Food Matters” http://

On a daily basis, select foods rich in enzymes such as sprouts, fruits and vegetables, and foods rich in carotenoids, such as blueberries, raspberries, goji berries, pomegranates, papaya, mangoes, peaches, cherries, kiwi fruit, dates, prunes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, carrots, egg yoke, turmeric, cranberries, leafy greens and herbs, avocado, sea vegetables, Sun Chlorella, spirulina, and other algae.

These nourishing super foods are also a rich source of antioxidants. Carotenoids are the red, yellow, Orange, and dark green coloured compounds found in fruits and vegetables. Carotenoids also promote cell communication and participate in female reproduction. The most abundant carotenoids are beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, gamma-carotene, lycopene, lutein, beta-cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and astaxanthin. Resveratrol found in grape skins is another beneficial antioxidant.

But make sure they are organic and not preserved with canola oil or other damaged vegetable oils.

BEWARE: Cholesterol-lowering medications lower blood levels of carotenoids. In addition,

margarine enriched with plant sterols such as Benecol and Olestra, a fat substitute added to snack foods, may decrease the absorption of carotenoids. Also, various food items such as grapes, dried fruits, beans, and nuts are sprayed with the pesticides Cryolite and sulfuryl fluoride and often preserved with canola oil. These pesticides significantly increase the level of fluorine in the body, which contributes to frozen shoulder, painful joints, thyroid disruptions, and numerous other

ailments.
