Health Beginner to Health Master
A Step by Step Guide to Achieving Great Health
by Bob McCauley
Level One: Copper
Begin drinking Ionized Water
There is nothing needed by the body more than water and there is no better water than Ionized Water. Ionized Water is a powerful antioxidant that alkalizes the body and hydrates the body better than any other water because the size and shape of its water molecule clusters is much smaller than conventional water. This also helps flush unwanted substances, i.e. toxins, out of the body. Ionized Water is extremely detoxifying.
Level Two: Bronze
Add Spirulina and Chlorella to your diet
These are the most powerful whole foods in the world and what we should use for our main protein source. If you take 3 – 4 grams of either Spirulina or Chlorella with each meal that is all the protein you will need for that meal. If you want to eat animal protein, meat, fish, eggs or dairy, it is strictly for the taste and is not required by the body. The more we can limit if not eliminate animal protein from our diet the healthier we will be. Only 10 grams (40 tablets – 250 mg each tablet) of Spirulina and/or Chlorella provides the body with all the protein it requires. Spirulina and Chlorella are the most powerful superfoods known, the absolute kings of the plant world. They are the most nutritionally dense and have the broadest array of nutrients of any whole foods known.
Level Three: Silver
Step taking Angstrom Minerals each day
Minerals are the Keys that start the Engine of our Health. Every bodily process depends on a particular mineral to take place. Whether it is the production of an amino acid or an enzyme interaction, the proper mineral must be present for it to occur. It is difficult for us to consume foods that have enough minerals in them and even more difficult for the body to absorb them. For optimal health we need to supplement with angstrom minerals. Angstrom refers to the incredibly small size of the minerals. These liquid minerals are taken in small amounts and held in the mouth under the tongue so they are absorbed through the sublingual gland. This allows the minerals to be injected directly into the bloodstream where they can efficiently be used by the body as it needs them. It has been my observation that people who are mineral deficient tend to live lives of scarcity while people who are mineral rich tend to live lives of abundance.
Level Four: Gold
Begin taking Prebiotics or Probiotics
Probiotics are critical to human health. Lactobacillus Acidophilus is a friendly bacterium necessary for the digestion of proteins. It also reduces fungus infections, lowers blood cholesterol, aids general digestion and enhances nutrient absorption. Deficiencies may result in constipation, bloating, intestinal toxicity, gas, bad breath, Candida, mold and fungal infections. Bifidus is key for the synthesis of the vitamin K and B vitamins, including Vitamin B-12. Deficiency of Bifidus can cause constipation, gas and elevated levels of ammonia from protein digestion, which can lead to liver toxicity. Probiotics also help keep harmful bacteria such as H-Priori and e-coli Prebiotics are fermented foods that are beneficial to the growth of intestinal flora such as Acidophilus and Bifidus, therefore they work together to provide the body with intestinal wellbeing. This is of vital importance since most diseases of the body begin the digestive tract.
Level Five: Platinum
Begin Eating More Raw Foods
Try to include as many different kind of raw foods to your diet as possible. I personally eat 200 – 250 foods each year. Although I may consume very small amounts of some of them, it’s important to remember that each and every food is completely unique. My Raw Food Pyramid explains which foods you should eat and in what quantities. Our diet should consist mostly of green foods because Chlorophyll is the single most important nutrient required by the body. Therefore, most of what we consume should consist of green leafy foods such as kale, spinach, parsley and arugula. Cooking foods destroys their enzymes and scrambles chemical structure of the food greatly diminishing the nutrient potential of that food. Cooking foods above 105F transforms them from alkaline, rejuvenating foods that reduce the oxidation of the body into a substance that is no longer recognizable by the body. Cooked foods acidify, provide little nutrition and increase the oxidation of the body, which accelerates the aging process.
There are many ways to start including raw foods in your diet, such as making a juice and/or having a salad each day. Doing either one or both of these on a regular basis will make a tremendous difference in your health.
Herbs are plants that we have determined possess powerful attributes that are beneficial to our health. They are not complete foods such as Spirulina and Chlorella, meaning they do not have a balanced compliment of protein (amino acids), carbohydrates and fat. Rather, herbs are concentrated in one or more chemical compounds, each that have profound health benefits of different kinds. And since there are innumerable plants, there are innumerable kinds of benefits to our health. When we take Herbs that are best taken with complete foods such as Spirulina and/or Chlorella that have protein, carbohydrates and fats in them. This allows these powerful herbs to be mollified as they enter the bloodstream. This is especially true of people who are very toxic, are on medications or have been sick for a very long time.
For instance, the herb Tribulus has chemical saponins that build muscle in the body. Mucuna has L-Dopamine that acts as a mood enhancer and has been shown in studies to improve neurological conditions. Valerian has valproic acid that helps us to relax. It also encourages deep, regular sleep patterns. Bacopa contains chemical components known as bacosides that improve memory and mental focus. The curcumin found in Turmeric is excellent for inflammation in the body. Studies also show that it can also help in treating memory loss. Ashwagandha is an herb that helps relieve stress, strain, fatigue, pain, skin diseases, blood sugar imbalances, gastrointestinal disease, joint/bone problems, and some neurological problems. It also helps increase energy as well as improves health and longevity. Shilajit regulates the blood sugar levels. Shilajit stimulates the immune system and improves recovery time after exercise. Shilajit counteracts debility and general fatigue. Chemical analyses of this brain-powering root, Maca, reveal an astonishing profile of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, sterols, fatty acids, and glucosinates.
Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) is essentially concentrated chlorella that contains extremely high amounts of amino acids (protein), polysaccharides, nucleic acids (RNA/DNA) as well as other nutrients including the vitamin-B complex. The nucleotide-peptide complex in CGF performs small miracles in the body. It is an incredible immune system builder by stimulating B-cell, macrophage and interferon production. Nucleic acids are depleted by lack of exercise, stress, pollution and poor diet. Replenishing RNA/DNA is therefore fundamental to every aspect of bodily health, longevity and quality of life. CGF is available in both liquid and powder.
At the Diamond Level, I also recommend that you start using a Far Infrared Sauna each day. Exposure to Far Infrared Rays are energizing, detoxifying and superior immune system builders. As you literally sweat out heavy metals, acrylamides, herbicides, pesticides, fungicides and other toxins of every imaginable kind, you will help encourage an environment that is not conducive to disease.
Other recommendations for Achieving Great Health at any level: Exercise vigorously for 15 – 30 minutes each day, get plenty of rest and, most importantly, maintain a positive mental attitude. Actively seek a relationship with God and know that your body is His temple and when you dishonor it the result is sickness and disease. However, when you honor the temple that God has given you the result is always the same: Great Health.
