BODY WELLNESS - NUTRITION & SPECIAL DIETS
Once you have neutralised the effect of your past on
your body, the next step is to nourish it with the correct
diet; that is the right foods, in the right amount.
The word ‘diet’ can have different meanings
for different people, with many adopting it to mean
a weight loss program. Our interpretation refers to
more general terms of what food based nourishment you
are providing your body to retain optimal wellness.
In addition we also include special diet programs for:
This site is mainly concerned with wellness, detoxification
and antiaging diets
The benefits of a wellness diet are:
- You get sick less often (if ever)
- You have more energy, more mental clarity, better
sleep, deep meditations
- You have less anxiety, elevated mood, more overall
appreciation of life; all leading to more happiness
Adopting a wellness diet does take a bit of effort
to educate yourself on the benefits of each food type.
By understanding how certain foods impact the body,
we can best assure ourselves that we have all the antiaging
bases covered. For instance, what vital
nutrients does the brain require for optimal functioning,
what foods clog or constrict the arteries, which fats
are good and which are bad? It is easy to pass over
this stage because we don’t see or feel an immediate
impact. If we drive the wrong way up a one way street
we can see that congestion it causes. But we cannot
immediately see foods that congest our arteries.
The statistics on obesity and
heart attacks speak for themselves, but the main
message is – we obviously have not been sufficiently
educated in healthy diets.
The body and mind are inextricably linked. We are what
we eat, and we feel what we are. Eat foods that adversely
impact the metabolic
system and we feel sluggish, which in turn leads
to fuzzy thinking and eventually depression.
Those who do eat well have experienced the huge benefits
that a wellness and antiaging
diet can bring. This is definitely are reason they
are fanatical about doing so. Again, the choice is yours.
We all have different metabolisms and different abilities
to digest and absorb nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
So how do you know if your diet is right for you? There
are physical and functional symptoms of an optimal wellness
diet that is the correct balance for your individual
needs. These include:
- Lasting energy throughout the day
- Clear thinking and good concentration
- No indigestion
- 2-3 bowel movements per day
- Good skin conditions
- White eyes
- No furry tongue
- Even general moods and stress management

The most widely supported antiaging measure amongst

The acid/alkaline balance of your body also needs
to be managed. Most people today have an over acid body,
primarily from a diet of acid-forming foods and stress.
This acidity is one of the first steps toward illness.
Acid based foods produce mucous, which congest the intestinal
tract. Over time, this congestion builds up to form
a hardened layer of intestinal [mucoid] plaque.
Stress alone may create the over acidity which leads
to mucoid plaque. To make matters worse, stress often
prompts us to seek comfort in high sugar and carbohydrate
