Step 3: Exercise

Diseases may occur as a result of an activity or inactivity. We have seen instances where diseases have occurred because of a wrong action like eating the wrong food.

Diseases also occur when an individual does not do anything, like living a sedentary lifestyle.

A sedentary lifestyle is one where someone spends a lot of time sitting down or sleeping, not moving about much and not doing anything; not involved in any kind of activity.

This kind of lifestyle generally slows down the body systems to the extent of causing one disease condition or the other. It is a lifestyle that leads to stagnation of water in the body and a sluggish blood flow.

Toxic acidic wastes accumulate, rendering the tissues acidic and a favorable breeding ground for disease.

The heart becomes weak and together with the state of dehydration gives rise to conditions such as hypertension…

Step 3: Exercise

Diseases may occur as a result of an activity or inactivity. We have seen instances where diseases have occurred because of a wrong action like eating the wrong food.

Diseases also occur when an individual does not do anything, like living a sedentary lifestyle.

A sedentary lifestyle is one where someone spends a lot of time sitting down or sleeping, not moving about much and not doing anything; not involved in any kind of activity.

This kind of lifestyle generally slows down the body systems to the extent of causing one disease condition or the other. It is a lifestyle that leads to stagnation of water in the body and a sluggish blood flow.

Toxic acidic wastes accumulate, rendering the tissues acidic and a favorable breeding ground for disease.

The heart becomes weak and together with the state of dehydration gives rise to conditions such as hypertension and its complications. There is weakness and a general feeling of malaise all the time. Later in life such lifestyle can lead to the development of certain kinds of cancer in the body because of the long standing acidity of the body. Added to this is the increased acidity due to lack of sweating which keeps toxins that would otherwise be expelled through the sweat pores by sweating.

The high level of acidity in the body of such an individual will elicit the production of fatty tissues for storage of the acid.

The end result of this is obesity accompanied with all the complications. All these adverse effects of the sedentary lifestyle will eventually lead to death.

To avoid these effects and to live a disease-free life therefore, it is important that everybody engages in exercises to one degree or the other.

These exercises as some think, are not the strenuous ones that sport men and women engage in. The recommended exercises for maintaining a vibrant life and general wellbeing are referred to as aerobics.

Brisk walking for 30 minutes each day, three to four days a week is just all that is required of you. However, if you are doing this for the first time, you want to start with five to ten minutes walk and gradually increase the duration every week.

Seven Steps to Living a Disease-Free Life Part 2

Step No. 2 Food [Living food or Dead food]
Food is essential to life and by life I am referring to the total well being of the human being.

In other words I am talking about a life of wellness, devoid of any disease, a life well nourished and a life of optimal growth for the young ones that are still growing. Even for the older ones who are not necessarily adding to their height, food must provide that feeling of newness and wellness as the old cells in their bodies are replaced by new ones from living food full of the right nutrients.

In Deuteronomy 30: 19 of the Holy Bible, Moses said to the children of Israel, “I call heaven and earth to record against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.”

Early after GOD created man He gave him what I always call the Genesis 1: 29 Diet, a diet of life [a blessing to man]. However like everything else, man was not satisfied with what GOD gave him. He decided to process and refine what GOD gave. Unknown to man he was adding curses and death to the diet GOD most graciously gave him, to support his life here on planet earth. The whole idea of processing the raw living food of Genesis 1: 29, was to extend the shelf life of the food, make it sweeter, more attractive to the eyes and to attract more money.

This is done by adding chemical preservatives, bleaching agents, colourings and other additives which together bring in a load of chemicals, heavy metals into the body. Not only that, daily in our kitchen we add death to the food that we eat by cooking and over-cooking them. All of these processes together rid the raw living food of important vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, enzymes, phytonutrients and trace elements. What is left is food with high glycaemic indices [able to cause type 2 diabetes], devoid of all that is mentioned above. From an early age therefore, the foundation for the onset of any of the degenerative diseases is set. Now the above scripture becomes true, there is life and death, blessing and curses before the human race.

Unfortunately, almost all human beings have chosen death and curses and the result which is the manifestation of the degenerative diseases has not deterred people from continually making the same choice as those who have gone before. Let me make this statement I have made before in the past: Whatever goes through the mouth is what causes diseases in man, if you eat the right food it will give you life and the wrong food will cause death.

Seven Steps to Living a Disease-Free Life

Step No. 1 Water.

Welcome to this season of healthy living, a period when all you readers of this column will learn how to live lives free from diseases and sicknesses. From today and for the next seven days, we shall be looking at the 7 Steps to living a disease-free life.

At the end of this period, for those that will do what I shall be discussing, healthy living will become their lifestyle.

Today we begin with water and I have chosen water because of its simplicity and the serious consequences that lack of it causes.

Water is life and it is absolutely essential for total wellbeing. Water makes up about 75% of the body of a male adult [this is about 10% less in the female].

The reason for this is that the male has more muscle mass.

There are approximately 100 trillion cells in the body and each one is 80% water.

The total water content of an adult is in the region of 45 liters and this varies depending on size, weight and the lifestyle of the individual.

This quantity of water is distributed in the extracellular space that surrounds all the cells of the body and the water is connected to the water inside the cells through openings in the membrane of the cells.

Water is always being filtered between the extracellular and intracellular spaces.

The quality of the extracellular fluid is most vital for the intracellular fluid and by extension the wellbeing of the cells, tissues, organs and the body as a whole. The extracellular space is 90% water, while the water in the intracellular is 75%.

The total amount of water at the different stages of life vary: a new born baby is 90% water and as the child grows the water content of the body reduces to 75% in the adult. The body of the elderly is 50% water.

The amount of water in the different compartments [organ systems] also vary; here are some examples, brain 83%, heart 78% lungs 80%, kidneys 82%, blood 90% and the bones are 22%.

The quality of the water in and around the cells is dependent on the following factors: the volume of the water in the body; if the water is less than optimum, a state that is referred to as dehydration, affects the quality of the water adversely.

In this state of dehydration a lot of things go wrong, some of which are reduction in the rate of flow of blood in the circulatory system.

As this becomes chronic, waste products accumulate in and around the cells. Nutrients, oxygen, vitamins, minerals and the likes become deficient at the cellular level.

The type of food eaten is another factor that affects the quality of the water. It is important to note that the type of food we generally eat which I always describe as ‘dead’ causes the water to be acidic.

On the other hand, eating living foods make the fluids alkaline. The lifestyle of an individual, whether active or sedentary also affects the quality of the body waters.

All these factors will ultimately render the fluids of the body acidic, a situation that supports diseases, infections and cancer.

Determining the quality of water in the body is by the pH scale. The pH scale is from 0 to 14. A pH of 7.0 is neutral, one from 0 to 6.9 is acidic and from 7.0 to 14 it is alkaline.

Unlike the acidic type of water, the alkaline water or environment supports life and health and it is for this reason that I always advice that we all should drink water regularly.

We drink water, not because of thirst, but because it is mandatory for healthy living, for when you become thirsty your body [cells] is already dehydrated.

How can the alkalinity of the body be maintained?

Firstly, drinking sufficient amounts of good water, like LASENA ARTESIAN MINERAL AND ALKALINE WATER.

This type of water contains energy rich alkaline minerals, electrons that directly neutralize the acidic minerals.
