|Sustainable Healthy Living|
experiencing longer and healthier lives. At least that is true for
some of the population. Life in America and
our neighboring countries is good and growing. We are becoming aware
of how fragile our environment is and the world we live in. The life's and
lifestyles we lead are now contributing to many forms of chronic illness and
danger in the products and chemicals used in daily life. Several
articles have been published in the medical journals about leading edge
treatments for heart disease, cancer, allergies, asthma, and other forms of
afflictions. Since we are surrounded by this continual display of
dangerous materials we will try to give some tips and help on prevention and
some causes of the problems.
Here is an outline of vitamin intake that can help protect you against the toxic poisons; 2-10 grams Vitamin C, spread out during the day, usually taken with food or soy drink to avoid stomach upset. Most animals produce their own Vitamin C at these levels, but humans and primates must get them externally. If you are sick and ill, you can take more to help your body fight the illness. 3-6 grams Lysine. This, together with vitamin C, addresses long-term atherosclerosis which is nearly universal by the time we reach age 20.
1 gram calcium with magnesium, spread during the day. The bodies nerve cells use up calcium, and if we don't eat it, it is taken from bones and teeth.
800-1600 IU Vitamin E If you have high blood pressure, check with your
physician. 25,000-50,000 IU Beta Carotene. 100-300 mg Ginkgo, for
increased blood circulation in nerve cells in the brain. 500-1000 mg
Pantothenic Acid and 10,000-20,000 mg Lecithin. Together, they enhance the
production of acetylcholine, for enhanced brain function. Take as directed
on the bottle.
Zinc: 15-20mg if you do not have night vision problems or prostate enlargement, 50mg if you have either problem.
Vitamin B-Complex supplement, to make up for the fact that we don't eat enough green leafy vegetables in our diet.
Aloe Juice - a few ounces of this somewhat odd-tasting liquid each day apparently helps heal internal inflammations you might have in your gastrointestinal tract. Given the number of people with severe dyspepsia, this may be a viable alternative to some of the powerful anti-acid medications people currently take, which can have unwanted side effects such as impotence! (There is also anecdotal evidence that aloe has a positive effect on arthritis, through unknown mechanisms.) Only use pure aloe juice that is prepared to be taken internally. It is sold by the quart or gallon in health food stores. Pregnant women should not ingest aloe.
Third, jog or
fast-walk at least 1 mile each day. If you are unused to daily
exercise, start with a shorter walk at a slower pace, and build up to a
mile. Remember, any type of exercise is good. Yoga, workouts,
golfing, swimming or walking around a
cruise deck on a vacation or holiday will always be great
exercise. Just remember even when you are on vacation, work out and
but a few of the starting ideas to a healthier lifestyle. We must
think healthy for us to become healthy. Staying away from toxic
poisons is a planned response to the war we fight daily against un-healthy
surroundings as we know it.
