A Commitment Worth Making
Our objective should be the increase of physical, emotional, psychological and
spiritual vitality. When this is achieved, we regain the ability to restructure,
redefine and fuel a life worth living.
By living harmoniously, happy, and healthy, one will increase the chances of
living to a ripe age, but this is not the ultimate goal.
Living well is being happy, feeling well, and making choices that put one in
harmony with the earth.
A Commitment Worth Making
It has become convenient to live an unhealthy life, and this is the
Living well takes commitment and self respect, but these changes will bring extraordinary rewards.
How many monetary, physical and emotional sacrifices do we regularly make for reasons which are less than healthy?
Oxygen, an element that comprises 87% of the oceans, one fifth of the atmosphere and six out of ten atoms in the earth’s crust, is largely the result of the proliferation of blue-green algae, the first life form.
There is no bodily function in which oxygen is not important.
Everything from the immune system to our bones rely on earth’s most vital nutrient.
Our bodies are so reliant on oxygen, in fact, that enzymes, immune cells and their receptors, rely on the oxygen contained in groups that the organic chemistry of the body readily use.
One should drink copious amounts of fluid.
Water clears the body of toxins and participates in all of its vital functions.
Even our bones are 40% water, and we shouldn’t need to be reminded that dehydration is unpleasant.
Go a day without drinking and you will know the importance of liquid.
There are two concerns surrounding water consumption:
- First, the purity, since modern people have polluted H2O with persistent bioaccumulative and toxic chemicals (PBTs).
- Second, the very molecular structure of water in its unadulterated form verses that which has been stagnate or chemically manipulated.
There are two forms of water that are acceptable for consumption:
- The first is steam distilled, which can be re-vitalized by adding organic minerals and placing in a glass containers in the sun to capture radiance from UV rays.
- The second desirable water is molecularly reorganized, which changes it’s structure and highly purifies it.
“The process of eating is perhaps the most intimate encounter we have with our world; it is a process in which what we eat becomes part of our body.” —T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D.
The most vital foods on earth are raw fruits, vegetables (of the land and sea),
nuts, seeds, grains and beans. These are the only foods that one should eat.
Nutrition is a combination of many factors, oxygen, water, food, and exercise being the main sources. Together, they provide complete vitality.
Many people see their diets as healthy and, consequently (because food is thought of as our greatest source of health), believe they must be eating well.
There are three forms of consistent exercise necessary in building vitality:
- STRETCHING — Challenges the tissue, ligaments, joints, and circulation, allowing the natural flow of blood and electricity.
- AEROBIC EXERCISE — Increases oxygen intake. Endorphins are secreted from the brain providing the calm and security
- RESISTANCE EXERCISE — Building and strengthening of the skeletal and muscle systems, preventing osteoporosis.
