Alpha-linolenic (ALA) acid is a type of omega-3 fatty acid found in plants. It is similar to the omega-3 fatty acids in algal oil, called eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Your body can change alpha-linolenic acid into EPA and DHA. Alpha-linolenic acid is also found in flaxseed oil, hemp oil, marine phytoplankton, AFA Algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae), chia seed and walnuts, to name a few sources. These are all good sources of this important nutrient.

Essential fatty acids like linoleic acid (LA, omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA, omega-3) play a vital role in oxygenating the body and transforming solar energy. They have a special nature which makes them essential to life, and at the same time, causes them to decompose in the presence of light or air. Nature, however, has designed a protection from light and oxygen damage and it is called the seed. Thus, the more whole seed essential fatty acids (EFAs) we eat, the greater the integrity of the EFA, and the end result for our bodies is increased energy and vitality. Some whole seed foods which are high in essential fatty acids are hemp, chia, flax, pumpkin, brazil, pistachio, walnut, hazelnut, almonds and macadamia. Below are some recipes which use whole seed EFAs.

As a full time practitioner, counselor and medical physician in the Hippocrates Life Change Program, I am afforded a daily opportunity to see how proper attitude, diet and fitness are the foundation of a long and disease-free life. My interest in active aging began to evolve after embarking in the field of alternative medicine and joining the Hippocrates tem. With the introduction of hyperbaric oxygen, inhalated oxygen therapies, and whole food IV and internally implanted nutritional supplementation widely used in the conquest of disease, I began to now extraordinary effects in preserving youth. Time and again, guests and patients who participate in these therapies tell me that they have not felt so well since childhood. Remarkably, the beneficial effects of these oxygen treatments last for weeks. It is no wonder the rich and famous often choose to spend so much time doing oxygen therapies.

Exposing food to radiation energy disrupts the organic processes essential to life and the reproduction of organisms. This is the statement that the United States Government uses to explain the benefits of irradiated food. As you can see this raises the term "Dead Food" to a new level. The initial research that was done in this life altering process showed us that it can weaken the immune system. Agriculture and distribution interests superceded the health consequences that this electron/nuclear beam process presents. Below is a partial list of damages this method presents to food.

Other than the theory of non-violence, other than the guideline thoughts of great philosophers such as Dr. Albert Schweitzer (who stated, "I am conscious that flesh eating is not, in accordance with the finer feelings and I abstain from it."), or Plato, ("Me gods created certain kinds of beings to replenish our bodies, they are the trees, the plants and the seeds."), our reasons for vegetarian lifestyle are more down-to-earth, more urgent in their voice for our destinies.

Long overdue is a renewal of the glory days of hemp, a highly nutritious and eco friendly plant used to make everything from paper, protein powder, and building materials to socks and lip balm.

What a century! The scientific and technological breakthroughs made in our quest to understand the biological needs of the body have astounded us throughout the 1900s. We are seeing a dramatic shift in the public’s attitude about the role that diet and lifestyle play in our overall health and longevity. More people are realizing that in deviating from the natural order, we lose something invaluable and life-giving. Indeed, it is no longer considered “natural” for people to eat a diet that is overcooked, over processed, denatured, sprayed, and possibly even irradiated before being preserved and packaged. But how did we get to this point? Let’s take a quick look back.

“To understand juice therapy requires an understanding of juice itself. How would you define juice? We define it as water, flavors, pigments, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Juice is all of these substances working synergistically to give your body the materials that promote healing, energy, and protection from disease. But beyond what we can define, there is a mystery left undefined. It’s like the miracle of birth. There is a miracle of energy supplied by live plants that comes from nothing else of this planet. After all is investigated and analyzed, it still can’t be fully explained. We’re not saying that juices are ‘magic bullets’. They should be part of a diet that is a high-quality, comprehensive approach to wellness. We do know that juice therapy has worked to bring about recovery from illness for thousands of people, many of whom had been given no hope to live.” Juicing for Life (Avery Press).

Food is our fuel. You don?t select your gasoline based on the color of your car. So too our fuel choices should be based on what we know our body needs. We have all indulged in something that brings a smile to our face, from sight or thought alone. All too often, we are drawn in by catchy jingles and TV spots. Only to know that aching belly or extra trip to the lavatory was a result. Factors such as time, price, mood, upbringing, present company and habit influence our meal choices. Many of us try healthier options when they are presented, and may even notice differences or slight improvements in our health. Switching from soda pop to V8 is likely a step in the right direction, but it is basically like trading a can full of sugar and acid for a bottle of salt and vegetables not suitable for sale whole.
