Having been fortunate to attend Brian Clement’s excellent presentation in London on 22nd June, I was reminded, yet again, of why I am following a living foods lifestyle. It’s not just about looking good and feeling good – it goes so much deeper than that; right down to the concept of epigenetics (alteration of gene expression without altering the DNA itself). Eating just one bad meal has been shown to change genetics! Think about that next time you get the urge to eat food that serves no purpose for the health of the body…
Here are the 5 top recommendations for epigenetic enhancement:
- Affirmative thought. The main difference between people who recover from illness and those who don’t, even if they follow the same lifestyle, is the ability of some to see themselves as if they are already well, vibrant and active. Cancer death rates are slashed when positive visualisation is used. The body follows what is in the heart and mind, so those imagining themselves 10 years in the future as joyful and healthy are far more likely to achieve just that. Whilst our cultural history is riddled with negativity and pessimism, remember that positive imagery and thoughts produce happy, productive people. Positivity enhances your genetic capability and suppresses the expression of bad genes. Who would have thought?
- Constructive diet. There are over 1.8 million species on planet Earth that we have so far identified, and guess what? None of them cook their food. Have we adapted to a cooked diet? That is highly debatable. Less than 10% of these species are truly carnivorous. A constructive, rather than a destructive diet, is the cornerstone of good health. Based upon ripe, raw plants, it feeds our cells and does not add to toxic load. The most important aspect of nutrition is electrical frequency and energy of the food you’re consuming. Sprouted plants are the best source of these beneficial frequencies. For more information on this important subject, please see The Whole Body Solution, or listen to the CD/MP3 Living Food for Optimal Physical and Spiritual Health.
- Productive movement. Listen up you non-exercisers, you need to address this one. I’ve always said that 75% of the benefits of an excellent diet are lost if you are sedentary. Regular exercise increases your IQ and balances the hormones. Just get moving. Your genes will love you for it, and you’ll be able to participate more in this amazing experience we call life. How about thinking of exercise as a part of your work? It might just be the push you need to get moving.
- Pristine environment. People congregate in cities – the most polluted places on the planet. Even if you are fortunate enough to live in the countryside, you are not immune from a toxic environment. On a “smaller” level, your clothes could be problematic. Don’t drape your body in fibres that are made from petrochemicals. Wear organic cotton underwear and ditch the underwired bras. Take a look at what you spray around your house, and what is in those cleaning products. Remember that furniture made from MDF can put out formaldehyde into household air. It’s summer, so open the windows and breathe deeply. For more tips on how best to detoxify, have a listen to my CD/MP3 The Importance of Detoxification.
- “Emospirit”. There is no segregation between the emotions and the human spirit. Your expression of your spiritual persona is your emotional state. Those people whose lives are filled with shock, and those who have had the most emotional turmoil in their lives, are those who age the fastest. All blockages, whether physical, psychological or emospiritual, reduce gene function and increase the potential for disease. People often want the easy way, not the fulfilling way. To quote Brian Clement, “If you want to get sick, hang out with the wrong people in the wrong environment, and eat nonsense!”
