Enzymes are particularly sensitive to the molecular destruction of cooking. Unfortunately, each of us is given only a limited supply of enzyme energy at birth that must work to keep every body system in working order throughout our lifetime. The only other backup source we have comes from the food we eat – but food cooked above 115 degrees F. kills enzymes! So what happens if you make big enzyme withdrawals when you catch a virus, do something physically strenuous, face an emotional crisis, breathe unclean air, get extremely angry, and then eat cooked and processed foods? The balance in your enzyme account drops low, is not replenished, and your body faces enzyme bankruptcy.

Fear is hardwired into our bodies as a primeval response designed to protect us. It is based on a negative anticipation of the future and it floods the system with a cascade of neurotransmitters and hormones that ready us for an emergency by heightening vigilance and bracing for damage. Like an uncontrolled wild fire, fear burns the bodys reserves, often in the face of an imagined threat, which may not actually come to fruition. (F.E.A.R = False Evidence Appearing Real). Fear then easily becomes more of a hazard than its intended object. For someone with a healing challenge, it’s not good to hang out in fear.

For years, maybe the only thing about aerobics no one has argued over is the basic cardio-fitness formula: 20 to 30 minutes of intense, nonstop activity three times a week.

Success is not a miracle.  Nor is it a matter of luck. Everything happens for a reason, good or bad, positive or negative. When you are absolutely clear about what you want, You only need to copy others who have achieved it before you, And you will eventually get the same results that they have. This is referred to in the Bible as the Law of Sowing and Reaping Which says that “Whatsoever a man soweth, that also shall he reap.” Sir Isaac Newton called it the third principle of motion. He said, “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction” For you and I, the most important expression of this universal law is that, “Thoughts are causes and conditions are effects” Put another way, “Thought is creative” Your thoughts are the primary creative forces in your life. You create your entire world by the way you think. All the people and situations of your life have only the meaning you give them By the way you think about them. And, when you change your thinking, you change your life, Sometimes in seconds! The most important principle of personal or business success is simply this: You become what you think about most of the time. It is not what happens to you, But how you think about what happens to you That determines how you feel and react. It is not the world outside of you That dictates your circumstances or conditions. It is the world inside you that creates the conditions of your life. It is not your environment or what you’re exposed to That determines the condition of your health. It is the internal state of your body –  Your internal state of resistance, balance, ease and harmony Which creates your level of health and well-being.

Once when my daughter was a playful, spacey three-year-old, she carelessly spilled her morning juice all over the table. She quickly got very quiet and looked at me solemnly holding her breath, perhaps expecting the worst. Saying nothing, I walked over to the sink, retrieved a sponge and placed it in the middle of the puddle in front of her. As she wiped up the mess, I said, “Thank you for being such a good helper.” She cleaned up very thoroughly, and soon got her bouncy and silly stride back. Even though she’d “messed up,” she still felt good about herself.

The founding fathers of our country set forth principles that would initiate a grand experiment in the evolution of civilization. Their vision was a tapestry unique and intricate. Today that same tapestry hangs tattered and torn: our environment is ailing, our society is sorely afflicted and our people are ruled by addictions. To restore the beauty of this tapestry, we need to find a common thread strong enough to hold it all together. That thread is the very fuel which nourishes our bodies and, therefore, our minds and our spirits. That fuel is our food, our diet.

The phrase “single parent” is new for the twenty-first century. Men and women are designed to repopulate and raise their children together. Both have strengths that help children develop to their fullest potential. Unfortunately, single parents are not really singly parenting unless their husband or wife has died or abandoned the children. These people are not parenting alone, just no longer living together.

Sex is one of the most misunderstood human experiences. The very word triggers a whole gamut of conflicting emotions and ideas, eliciting thoughts that are pleasurable or otherwise. But rarely does it ever draw our minds to the fundamental reason for its existence in our lives. If we go back to the very beginning of human life, sex had but one purpose, and that was to ensure the perpetuation of the human race. Clearly, we have strayed from this very simple concept.

These days, the greatest preoccupation we human beings seem to have is our search for the one grand solution to the many ills and problems that plague our lives. Harried and confused, we go about seeking It in all possible places except, perhaps, there where we may find clues to some of the answers. Although through the use of our basic common sense, we know that there is not one particular source from which all problems and ill-fortune emanate, we insist just the same on going about this exercise in futility. But if we were to recognize the one thing that conics closest to being a source of many of our problems, it would surely be self-esteem or the lack of it.

We are living in a society where most of the adult population is insecure and functioning from a position of fear- fear of relating to others, of public speaking, of confronting an important issue, of letting go, of allowing the true self to emerge, etc. These insecurities and fears reflect in personal, family and social habits that compound the issues: food, alcohol and drug (ab)use; crime, violence and war, child abuse; physical and mental illness; environmental and economic irresponsibility; etc. as a result, it is easy to understand why today’s children are confused and why our society is searching for methods to overcome these fears.

The risk of cancer (an unrestrained growth of abnorma cells) is dramatically increased with the use of drugs like Proscar, according to Jan-Ake Gustafsson, M.D. and professor of medicine at Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. Dr. Gustafsson concluded his extensive study on the effects of common prostate medicines on the body, reporting his initial findings in 2001. Recent, more comprehensive studies proved that certain pharmaceuticals dramatically increased the risk of cancer by inhibiting the release of testosterone in the prostate and thereby limiting its essential by-product, beta-receptor, which carry out the critical role of controlling the growth of the prostate cells. These findings, once again, expose the hazardous nature of some pharmaceuticals in their purported quest to heal disease.

No man is an island, and there is no question that we need others in our lives to maintain vitality. In fact studies show that interaction with others is a major factor in longevity. The simple act of reaching out lowers our blood pressure and releases endorphins. It is a fact that those who have the largest support systems also live the longest.
