No More Illness

138 ◄ Previous Page Home Next Page ► Chapter Index N Nutrition Respect Nature and use the foods that Nature provides - as close as possible to how Nature provides them. Avoid refined foods and precooked foods. Avoid preservatives, colourants, etc. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and grains must predominate. A Air Sleep with your windows open - this is vital. In air-conditioned rooms, make sure the vents in the air- conditioner are open. Windows must be open 24 hours a day - even in air-conditioned offices. Kindly refuse to work in an office with someone who smokes. Practise deep breathing regularly. T Trust in God God equipped us with a marvellous body that is programmed for survival. When we respect the common-sense laws of life our eliminative organs will function as they should and our immune defences will protect us and/or cure us from disease. As with all the laws of life, the laws of health are only there for our benefit. U Uplift others “Without deep reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people.” (Einstein). “The pleasure of doing good to others imparts a glow to the feelings, which flashes through the nerves, quickens the circulation of the blood, and induces mental and physical health.” If you want to be happy, make others happy. If you want peace, love your enemies. R Rest Labourers who rest 20 minutes in every hour can accomplish much more in a day than those who rest only at lunch-time. Respect your body’s need for rest and your body will reward you. One hour of sleep before midnight is worth two hours after midnight. Avoid anything stimulating. E Exercise Exercise is a must for natural bowel function, to aid elimination, to help drain the lymph system, and to condition and tone every cell and organ in the body. Take a short brisk walk outside after every meal. Do half an hour of walking or moderate exercise every day - this is especially important if you do much mental work. As a rule, outdoor exercise is better than indoor exercise. S Sunshine The sun is the battery charger of life. We all need at least 30 minutes in the direct sunlight every day. Sunlight converts cholesterol into vitamin D. Living and/or working in a room that does not get direct sunlight will stunt growth and weaken the entire system. Install Perspex sun boxes in the ceiling of rooms that do not get any sun (these must be made from Perspex – not glass.) W Water Water is the internal and external cleanser of Nature. Drink at least 2 large glasses of water at least 30 minutes before breakfast and lunch. Take the bulk of your liquids in-between meals rather than with your meals. Drink the best water available - your tap water could be recycled urine. Warm baths soothe the nerves. A Abste- miousness Eat, work, play and study in moderation. The use of whole foods will put a permanent end to over- eating as well as the desire to eat in-between meals. Over exercising will undermine your immune system. Over-work is a killer - devote the evenings to your family - not to work. Be wise and be safe. Y Your attitude Loveandrespect themiracle thatyouare.Thinkbigbutremember thatbig thingsareonlyaccomplished when we pay attention to the small things. Feed on your trials - for trials make us stronger. Pride is an exhausting tyrant - humility is the only way to escape her clutches. Each day is a precious gift, unwrap it excitedly, cherish it and enjoy each moment. Remember that life is now - this moment - it is not some future state of euphoria that will come upon us when all of our dreams finally come true. Nature’s Way - Lifestyle Guide
