Inside Out
Vitamin B12 neutralizes MSG

SCIENTIFIC knowledge is out there but is not being translated into clinical settings, according to Bill Faloon, editor of Life Extension Magazine based in the United States.

Medicine today is challenged to focus on prevention rather than just cure, teach patients to be more cooperative with their doctors, and seek better ways to improve the quality of life of patients.

Wrong food

Eating the wrong kind of food increases one?s risk of contracting a disease. Conversely, having a healthy diet promotes a long and youthful life. For example: Cancer cells in your body will multiply if you continue to eat the wrong food such as sweets, protein and processed goods. However, they will decrease and eventually die if you consume highly alkaline food like vegetables and fruits. The following will feed/increase your cancer and vascular risks: steak, baked potato, fatty salad dressing and green dessert.

Why? If the steak is not organic, chances are it is loaded with monosodium glutamate, considered a nerve toxic; vegetable oil in the dressing (soybean, soya, corn, sunflower) is high in omega-six fatty acid, which is converted into arachidonic acid by the body and causes inflammation; if the vegetables are not organic, they may be laced with pesticides.

Avoid fatty dairy products, organs and red meat. Eat more fish and fish oil to increase omega-three intake. Other sources: flaxseed oil and virgin olive oil (Some olive oils are mixed with other oils to bring down the selling price).

Conventional medicine can co-exist with alternative medicine. This kind of partnership can guarantee a patient?s recovery.

Cut the sugar. More studies have shown that sugar, while it sweetens the taste, can be a bitter pill to swallow. Sugar can only weaken if taken in excessive amounts.

Plant extracts can do you good. A 2004 study on melons and pomegranates showed reversed coronary heart disease by 30%.

Magnesium can prevent heart attack risks. Just 400-800mg daily is enough for your heart?s health.

Health aids. Vitamin B12 neutralizes flavor enhancers like MSG. Vitamin E (200mg, gamma tocopherol) prevents breast and prostate cancer. Zinc, 30-50mg daily, boosts the immune system. 500mg of niacin can lower bad cholesterol. Curcumin has anti-inflammatory properties and is a preventive for Alzheimer?s, cancer and artherosclerosis. Melatonin keeps you young and boosts the immune system, reduces cancer risks and promotes better sleep (as tested in animals). One to 20mg nightly makes you sleep like a baby.

If you cut back on the calories, you will prolong your life because it dramatically lowers insulin and glucose blood levels.

A poised, centered stance is fueled by a peaceful nature. Don?t go into extremes whenever possible. Focus on slow breathing in times of stress.

AFFIRM NOW: ?I claim goodness in my life beginning today.?

Love and light!
