Diets and Nutrition
Once you have neutralised the
effect of your past on your body, the next step
is to nourish it with the correct
diet; that is the right foods, in the right amount.
The word ‘diet’ can have different meanings
for different people, with many adopting it to mean
a weight loss program. Our interpretation refers to
more general terms of what
food based nourishment you are providing your body
to retain optimal wellness. In addition we also include
special diet programs for:

Benefits of Wellness Nutrition
The benefits of a wellness nutrition diet are:
- You get sick less often (if ever)
- You have more energy, more mental clarity, better
sleep, deep meditations
- You have less anxiety, elevated mood, more overall
appreciation of life; all leading to more happiness
Adopting a wellness diet does take a bit of effort
to educate yourself on the benefits of each
food type. By understanding how certain foods impact
the body, we can best assure ourselves that we have
all the antiaging bases covered. For instance, what
vital nutrients does the brain require for optimal functioning,
what foods clog or constrict the arteries, which
fats are good and which are bad? It is easy to pass
over this stage because we don’t see or feel an
immediate impact. If we drive the wrong way up a one
way street we can see that congestion it causes. But
we cannot immediately see foods that congest our arteries.
The statistics on obesity and heart attacks speak for
themselves, but the main message is – we obviously
have not been sufficiently educated in healthy diets.
The body and mind are inextricably linked. We are what
we eat, and we feel what we are. Eat foods that adversely
impact the metabolic system and we feel sluggish, which
in turn leads to fuzzy thinking and eventually depression.Those
who do eat well have experienced the huge benefits that
a wellness and antiaging diet can bring. This is definitely
are reason they are fanatical about doing so. Again,
the choice is yours.
We all have different metabolisms and different abilities
to digest and absorb
nutrients, vitamins and minerals. So how do you
know if your diet is right for you? There are physical
and functional symptoms of an optimal wellness diet
that is the correct balance for your individual needs.
- Lasting energy throughout the day
- Clear thinking and good concentration
- No indigestion
- 2-3 bowel movements per day
- Good skin conditions
- White eyes
- No furry tongue
- Even general moods and stress management
Likewise, there are reliable markers that your diet
is not right. Poor skin, rings or bags under the eyes,
and discoloration of the eyes.
The Food Pyramid
The typical food pyramid was based on questionable
and is out of date. In response, the USA Centre for
Nutrition Policy and Promotion developed an
online tool in an effort to fight growing obesity
amongst USA citizens. [It does require a simple registration
to save changes for up to one year]. This new revised
based site provides a comprehensive analysis of
your diet, and exercise, offering tracking
of food intake and exercise to ensure that you are
maintaining proper nutrition for your exercise levels.
Note: this is wellness based, and does not factor in
the muscle building, fat losing, cell optimisation goals
of antiaging programs. In spite of this, it is a splendid
tool and very revealing! Prepare to spend some time
on this exercise. Your data input is saved so you can
keep working on this over a period of time, then continue
to adapt and track changes.

Antiaging diets take the normal wellness nutritional
diet a step further. It incorporates three key elements:
Building Fat Loss Nutrition
Muscle Building Fat Loss Nutrition
of muscle and
increase in fat are key symptoms of the aging process.
Many chase the latest fad diet in an attempt to reduce
that growing adominal fat. These very rarely ever work.
The main reason the fat is building, is that the muscle
mass has reduced, changing the metabolic level of the
body. By concentrating on
maintaing muscle mass through antiaging exercise and
nutrition programs, the fat problem essentially
disappears. This is the ONLY effective fat control program,
if one wants to maintain a full nutritional diet.
The most widely supported antiaging measure amongst
antiaging researchers is the impact of a restrictive
calorie diet on life span. There are various methods
of caloric restriction based around fasting.
The acid/alkaline balance of your body also needs
to be managed. Most people today have an over acid body,
primarily from a diet of acid-forming foods and stress.
This acidity is one of the first steps toward illness.
Acid based foods produce mucous, which congest the intestinal
tract. Over time, this congestion builds up to form
a hardened layer of intestinal [mucoid] plaque. Stress
alone may create the over acidity which leads to mucoid
plaque. To make matters worse, stress often prompts
us to seek comfort in high sugar and carbohydrate acid-forming
The ideal PH is 7.4; which is blue on the litmus test.
