The Pulse Quest

When I was just months over eight years of age, I attended some friends Sunday school class.

I sat enthralled as sister lake told the story of Daniel from chapter one in the Old Testament book of that same name.  I was thrilled to hear that four young men who had refused to eat the meat, wine and dainties of the kings appointed food allotment for them, had decided instead to eat just pulse and water.

After only ten days, it was obvious that they were healthier, and doing better than all of the young people dining upon the kings menu.

The story went on to declare that at the end of three years on pulse and water, these four young men where, in fact, tested out as being ten times smarter in all learning and problem solving skills than all of the learned men and the kings entire realm, which at that time was most of the known world.

It is an understatement to say that I went home that day filled with the thrill of wonder and awe.  I wouldn’t shut up about Pulse and water.  I drove my mum, family and friends nuts.  I had to have some, now!!!!

Health Comes Of A Healthy Lifestyle

Eat less.  Eat whole foods.  The more you eat, the less energy you have; less food generates more energy.  Drink one quart of water for every 50 lbs you weigh, let water be a lot of your food.

Because it is.  If you are what you eat, you’re 70% water.  The brain is over 90% water; eat up the water.  After 6pm, just have liquids, soups, sops, sups, that’s why it’s called supper.

Move more.  The more you move, the more you can move; the less you do, the less you can do.  Movement generates health energy.

Relax.  Sit in a hot tub, on a porch, lay in the sun, swing under a shade tree, listen to your favorite music, get a massage, do a colonic, make love, have a glass of organic wine or a couple of natural unforced beers.

Every House Has a Flu!

A house with a fire place has FLU for the smoke to rise and leave so as to not fill the house with smoke to the point you can’t stay in the house. The FLU has a VENT to open and close when needed.

Your body FLUs or VENTS 24 hours a day. Sometimes it gets overwhelmed and opens up all the VENTS in the house (your body) for immediate clearing.

The idea of disease (discomfort) or symptoms (avenues of venting) of disease actually comes from the body.

This VENTING is completely natural and is the cure or method of clearing the debris.

VENTING comes in the form of movement, perspiration, breathing (20,000 times a day) sweating, colds, nausea, diarrhea, rashes, pustulence on the skin, oozing from the eyes and ears and nose.

A certain amount of confusion surrounds the use of chemicals in personal care items, on one hand ‘big business’ marketing assures us that chemical additives are perfectly safe but the evidence of their harmful effects suggests otherwise.

The products we use to improve our appearance often contain chemicals that are extremely harmful to our natural balance of hormones.

There are several commonly used ingredients that can be found in everything from body and face lotions to cosmetics and shaving creams which are known endocrine disruptor’s.

These ingredients can alter hormonal chemistry by increasing circulation of hormones by mimicking their activity in the body, or they can reduce the level of sex hormones in the body or block their activity.
