My Health Revolution:
I read about
the Hunzacuts' way of life in 1962 and became interested in
nutrition, changing slowly from pizza, steak, cottage cheese,
salami, Cheerios, French fries, chicken, eggs, etc., to fruits,
veggies, nuts and seeds. I did this gradually over a number
of years and went through the usual "healing crisis"
when I became 100 percent raw.
I have inexhaustible energy on this diet and can keep going
twelve to fourteen hours a day. I exercise six days a week,
and my outlook is always positive. I am happy with my healthy,
simple lifestyle. Sometimes I have five bananas in the morning,
a coconut for lunch, and a large salad with avocado for dinner.
With discipline you can change your lifestyle, prevent disease,
gain more energy and strength, and look and feel good. You
just have to make the decision and maintain your commitment
to responsible choices.
Living From the
My life has been devoted to helping myself and others. I practice
what I preach, smile many times a day, and frequently affirm
"I am peaceful" in my three-second meditations.
In another, longer meditation period, I affirm: "I am
healthy, strong, joyous, free, independent, p rotected, peaceful,
loving, humble, forgiving, compassionate, trusting, truthful,
part of nature," and then: "Yes, I am." These
affirmative meditations condition the cells and enhance life.
I enjoy helping people who want to be informed and take responsibility
for their lives, and am challenged by those who don't. The
“doctor” cannot take over your responsibility
for yourself. Many corporations are motivated by financial
interests to invent diseases such as “restless legs
syndrome” to sell new drugs. The weakening of organic
farm standards and the financial contributions of McDonald's
to the Harvard Medical School Nutrition Letter are two examples
of this corporate corruption. There are many more corporations
such as Proctor and Gamble, Philip Morris, Monsanto, Coca
Cola, Archer Daniels Midland, etc., that contribute to disease
such as childhood canc er and diabetes. However, “green
businesses” are growing and you can find organic food
in many stores.
The evolution of global consciousness is growing, as shown
by the formation of groups strongly committed to positive
change. Those upholding truth, love and sanity are facing
insane, corrupt, greedy killers lacking personal integrity,
intent on destroying people and the planet for short-term
selfish gains. These illusions of control and power cannot
succeed, since they are self-destructive, shortsighted, and
on the side of fear rather than love.
They are actually our teachers, providing the contrast needed
to mobilize us into action and come out of our passive, helpless,
hopeless state. We are waking up and finally taking action.
So what can you do? Take care of yourself and your family
by making responsible choices and evaluating the consequences
of your choices. Open your min d, your heart and your eyes
to how you are living and start working for your health and
peace. Take steps everyday, however small they may be. Do
We can help ourselves and each other by becoming part of this
evolution which is leading to spiritual growth, love, peace
and fellowship. We are all part of nature and not separate
from the natural world. We are part of each other and must
not be separated by religions, borders and different beliefs.
When we recognize this and practice being peaceful and loving
every day, remembering and communicating in the international
language of a smile, we are doing our part to move in the
direction that is crucial to our continuance as a species.
