Supplements are very important, especially a multiple vitamin. The American Medical Association now says we should take one. And fish oil because it has omega 3 fatty acids and they have been found to lower depression, dementia, ADD, and people who kill themselves. So fish oil supplements; I have been taking them for years, I actually scanned my brain before and after and it's better.

As I see it, every day you do one of two things: build health or produce disease in yourself.

The etheric body looks like a ghostly glowing copy of your physical body. It is a pattern of energy that guides your biological cells into growing and behaving in an organized way, keeping you alive and healthy. Think of the etheric body like the field of a magnet pulling on a bunch of tiny metal pieces, pointing them into an orderly pattern. It does the same thing to the cells in your physical body. Without the etheric, your physical body would eventually fall apart. People who lose their limbs in accidents often continue to feel something there even though the physical limb is gone-they are feeling the etheric part that stayed intact. Normally the etheric overlaps your physical body, but during sleep it may expand and hover above it a little. The energy that the etheric body is made of is lifeforce energy. Fresh fruits and vegetables have lots of it because they are alive, and everyone knows that fresh is healthier for you than cooked, though not everyone knows it's because cooking also removes the etheric lifeforce energy in food.

Even less physical than the etheric, but also more vibrant and sophisticated is the astral body. It does to the etheric body what the etheric does to the physical. Basically it influences the shape and behavior of the etheric. What makes the astral body different is that instead of dealing with lifeforce energy, the astral deals with emotional and creative energy. Rather than moving the cells of your body, it moves your feelings. The types of feelings you regularly have determine the shape and color of your astral body. But because the astral is so close to the mind, the way it looks is often more symbolic than anything. For instance, an angry or wicked person will have an astral body that looks crooked and scary, even though the physical body looks normal.

So to summarize, the mind infuences the astral, the astral infuences the etheric, and the etheric infuences the body. In this way the mind can control the body. Now if you think negative thoughts all the time, it will affect your astral body and make it full of negative emotions, which then influence the etheric by making it darker and weaker, which then over time causes illness in the physical body. Therefore to stay healthy, it is important to not dwell all the time on stress, useless negative thoughts, and bad feelings.

Also, children fall ill more easily than adults. This is partly because their physical immune system has not yet been trained to fight disease, and partly because their etheric body is softer and weaker. If you eat more living foods like fruits and vegetables, focus on the happy things in life that fill you with gratitude, and stop worrying about what you cannot change, you can greatly reduce how often you get sick regardless of your age.

Less than 7 hours of sleep at night causes lower overall brain function.

Daniel G. Amen, M.D. (from The Early Show on CBS, October 11, 2005)

Nothing occurs in your lifenothingwhich is not first a thought. Thoughts are like magnets, drawing effects to you. The thought may not always be obvious, and thus clearly causative, as in, "I'm going to contract a terrible disease." The thought may be (and usually is) far more subtle than that. ("I am not worthy to live.") ("My life is always a mess.") ("I am a loser.") ("God is going to punish me.") ("I am sick and tired of my life!")

Thoughts are a very subtle, yet extremely powerful, form of energy. Words are less subtle, more dense. Actions are the most dense of all. Acton is energy in heavy physical form, in heavy motion. When you think, say, and act out a negative concept such as "I am a loser," you place tremendous creative energy into motion. Small wonder you come down with a cold. That would be the least of it.

It is very difficult to reverse the effects of negative thinking once they have taken physical form. Not impossiblebut very difficult. It takes an act of extreme faith. It requires an extraordinary belief in the positive force of the universewhether you call that God, Goddess, the Unmoved Mover, Prime Force, First Cause, or whatever.

God from Conversations with God (Book 1) through Neale Donald Walsch

If you get cramps in your feet, legs, or arms after physical activity, a quick and easy solution is to have a sports drink such as Gatorade instead of water, caffeine drinks, fruit juices, or alcohol. Drinking a sports drink that contains sodium and potassium during the activity should prevent most cramps. There are times when I'm not able to get a sports drink when I need it, so the cramps usually start up later in the evening, but drinking a sports drink even that many hours later will stop the cramps. It's like a magical cure for cramps. I don't remember a time when a sports drink has let me down. You can go back to drinking your pure water and fresh fruit and vegetable juices the rest of the time, but if you want a quick way to stop the cramps, a sports drink always works for me.

Some people will tell you that adding more salt to your diet will help, but I have been guilty of using far more salt than the average person and it never helped get rid of cramps. Eating foods that contained a lot of potassium didn't help and neither did taking supplements. It seems that a sports drink will do more to stop cramps than just about anything.

Duane Alan Hahn

Pain, whether it's a result of a headache or cancer, is the direct result of the condition of the body's lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is the body's garbage collector. As part of a natural process, the body generates toxins, and the lymph collects and eliminates this waste from the body. If more waste is produced than the lymph can remove, there will be an overflow of toxins, and that's why we experience pain and discomfort.

There is three times more lymph fluid than blood in the body! That's 18 quarts of lymph fluid. So, all areas of health are dependent on how clean the lymph system is. I've spent the last 30 years studying the effect of a clean lymph system on our well being. This is what I have discovered: Without question, taking the steps necessary to clean the lymph system so it operates at optimum efficiency is the missing link in the quest for health.

Harvey Diamond from an ivillage interview

Isn't it a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do practice?

George Carlin

Here's a personal experience I'd like to share. When I was 21, in 1966, I was in Vietnam. I was exposed to Agent Orange on many occasions. Now, I have peripheral neuropathy, which means both of my legs have a limp, and I have limited use of my arms and hands. The reason I tell you this is: I am the longest-known survivor with this condition. The average lifespan after exposure to Orange is five years after deterioration -- and for me it's been 15 years. Agent Orange has to be in the body for 20 years before it begins to deteriorate. In 1970, I learned about the lymph system, and how I could clean it to lose weight and clear up other conditions. All the effort I made literally saved my life. The message I want to spread is this: If I can battle Agent Orange and live, YOU can be disease-free.

Harvey Diamond from an ivillage interview

Instead of trying to flush your system by flooding it with water, all you have to do is eat foods that are naturally rich in waterwater-content foods. There are only three kinds on the planet: fruits, vegetables, and sprouts. These will provide you with an abundance of water, the lifegiving, cleansing substance. When people live on a diet that is low in water-content foods, an unhealthy functioning of the body is almost guaranteed. As Alexander Bryce, M.D., states in The Laws of Life and Health, "When too little fluid is supplied, the blood maintains a higher specific gravity and the poisonous waste products of tissue or cell change are only cast off very imperfectly. The body is, therefore, poisoned by its own excretions, and it is not too much to say that the chief reason of this is because a sufficient amount of fluid has not been supplied to carry off in solution the waste matter the cells manufacture."

Your diet should be consistently assisting your body with the process of cleansing, rather than burdening it with indigestible food stuff. The buildup of waste products within the body promotes disease. One way to keep the bloodstream and body as free as possible from wastes and toxic poisons is to limit ingestion of those foods or nonfoods that strain the eliminative organs of the body; the other is to provide enough water to the system to assist in the dilution and elimination of such wastes. Dr. Bryce continues, "There is no fluid known to chemists which can dissolve as many solid substances as water, which is indeed the best solvent in existence. If, therefore, sufficient quantities of it are supplied, the whole process of nutrition is stimulated because the paralyzing effect of the toxic waste products is removed by their solution and subsequent excretion by the kidneys, skin, bowel, or lungs. If on the contrary these toxic materials are allowed to accumulate in the body, all sorts of diseases will arise."

Why is heart disease our biggest killer? Why do we hear about people keeling over and dropping dead on the tennis court at the age of forty? One reason may be that they've spent a lifetime clogging their system. Remember, the quality of your life is dependent upon the quality of your cells. If the bloodstream is filled with waste products, the resulting environment does not promote a strong, vibrant, healthy cell lifenor a biochemistry capable of creating a balanced emotional life for an individual.

Dr. Alexis Carrel, a Nobel Prize winner in 1912 and then a member of the Rockefeller Institute, set out to prove this theory by taking the tissue from chickens (which normally live an average of eleven years) and keeping their cells alive indefinitely simply by keeping them free of their own wastes and by supplying them with the nutrients they needed. These cells were kept alive for thirty-four years, after which the Rockefeller Institute became convinced that they could keep them alive forever and thus decided to end the experiment.

Anthony Robbins from Unlimited Power

The Good and the Bad

Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.

Never litter. If you can't find a trash can, take it home and throw it away there.

Hydrofracking is bad for you, your family, your friends, and the environment.

Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. I take B-Right.

Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.”

Negative Ions Are Good For Us

Hundreds of research articles over the past thirty years have shown evidence that negatively charged air ions are actually good for our health, while positive air ions are not.


Do You Have A Vitamin D Deficiency?

You could have a vitamin D deficiency and not even know it. A 25(OH)D blood level between 60 and 100 ng/ml might help prevent depression, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, common cancers, and more. [I took a daily multivitamin for years and my blood level was 19, so don't think taking a multivitamin every day means you're fine.]

Effects on the child may include asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, autism, mental retardation, schizophrenia, weak bones, cavities, and more.


Selling the "Vitamins Don't Work" Myth: What's the Real Story?

Because everyone expects vitamins to have a beneficial impact on health, negative sound bytes are a boon to media interests. This is why the more favorable-sounding studies are rarely scooped up for a headlineand there are many.
