although difficult, and not always easy while combating negative emotions,
should be a defensive measure. At least we will be able to prevent the
advent of negative
conduct dominated by negative emotion. That is 'shila', or moral ethics.
Once we develop
this by familiarizing ourselves with it, along with mindfulness and conscientiousness,

is in our thinking. Everything
we think begins as a seed thought and then it grows
and propagates according to how we express those thoughts.
Thoughts + Feelings = Emotions. An important thing to
remember is that the quality of our health is negativity impacted
by our unconscious resistance of some form of non-acceptance.
This state of non-acceptance and hidden resistance to the ways
things are, is the cause of suffering. If we learn to harness
our minds from moment-to-moment, we can eliminate our judgments
that occur at the level of thought and our negativity, at the
level of emotion. There is an inverse relationship between the
intensity of our dis-ease to the degree of our resistance. We
see it in the blood as acid ph. So it is for each of us to decide
how free we wish to be of pain and suffering --- free of the dominating
ego-mind that runs our lives.
Emotions and stress causes an acidic environment in the body,
which is the underlying causation of most diseases. While
some negative emotions produce more acid than others, certainly
thoughts on the lower scale of consciousness (unrestrained
animal-like impulses) produce the largest quantities of adrenalin
and therefore acidity, which exhaust and age us. Naturally
the more extreme the emotion the more acidic the blood becomes.
Acid in the blood is called oxidation.
Anything extreme that is divisive, one-sided, or myopic oxidizes
the blood whether it is justified by a religion, culture,
group or philosophy. This ranges from being self-critical
to being judgmental of others; stress; fear, anger, and hate;
depression, blame, cynicism, negative thinking, and so on.
Even things we see as positive when perceived in the extreme
are out of balance and therefore, create a physiological effect
within the body’s pH balance. A good example of an extreme
would be someone who hates war, but loves Peace. As a peace
advocate, certainly war is not the answer, but rather it is
the emotional velocity to a particular situation that is totally
rejecting of the other without seeking first to understand,
which causes such a physiological response in the body. Nihilistic
and dualistic thinking acts as a trigger to create an extreme
or heightened emotional response.
acidity in the blood shows up
as white spots on the cells
discoloration. Wherever acids settle
in the body,
they make coagulation
difficult, and the location of these
puddles of blood indicate problems
in the organ system
lymphatics related to those feeding routes in the blood system.
such negative emotional arousals consume us with relentless suffering,
exhausting, depressing, saddening, and weakening our immune system.
Oxidation in the blood is the result of anger and resentment,
arthritis, dark moods, reactivity and violent feelings--creating
acid in body, thought, word and action. We can each ask ourselves
how many times we have been so upset that we gave ourselves an
upset stomach; got acid reflux because we could not properly metabolize
or digest our emotions; had a bout of diarrhea due to stress or
nervousness; or allowed our problems to fester eating away at
our sanity. Any of these scenarios sound familiar?
a solid grip on our emotions not just in external restraint, but
on an internal level where we can bring more love and understanding
to them to propagate higher quality thoughts promotes alkalinity.
It is actually quiet interesting that Love and understanding cleanses
and heals the body creating an internal alkaline environment.
Perhaps love is the body’s natural state of being and its
default system to remind us when we are not aligned in love.
health occurs in a slightly alkaline environment. Alkalinity is
so important in blood that the body has powerful mechanisms to
maintain pH between 7.25 and 7.65. Our glands and organs function
properly in exact proportion to the alkaline and acid levels in
our system. Prolonged time in the acid pH state, or acidosis,
impacts our organs and can cause rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes,
lupus, tuberculosis, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, and cancer.
Cynicism and negativity are strongly associated with degenerative
are other triggers along with emotional stress that result in
acidic pH-- immune reactions, acid-forming diets, toxic overload
or other processes that deprives cells of oxygen and nutrients.

A balanced diet is essential to maintain good health or not to aggaravate existing imbalances.
bodies are a sensitive apparatus. All dairy products pasturized or raw, refined carbohydrates which are complex sugars, irritants such as hot peppers, black pepper, soda, etc., toxic chemicals, foreign proteins such as meat, cause a lymphatic response of the mucosa producing excessive mucus production, which invites parasites. When the body is bombarded with mucos from the lymph system, cellular function is blocked by congestion producing "Hypo-activity' of tissues, glands and organs.
Hormone imbalances, high acid forming diets, medications, and heavy metal congestion through foods, air, soil, water and cosmetics are antigens to the body that produce inflammation. Inflammation leads to hypoactivity initiating a domino effect of many disease symptoms that plague humanity and animals.
Cell walls are composed of chained amino acids or proteins, cholesterol, which is inflammation protection, and phospholipids. When a cell becomes weakened, these proteins and antigens change sending a signal for the cells destruction. This is the bodies immune response to foreign antigens introduced into the body from the outer world.
A 100% raw diet is optimum, but may be challenging for most. A raw food
diet consisting an 80% live, nutritionally
dense, organic, uncooked and unprocessed fruit and veggies to 20% cooked veggies for grounding is effective for wellness. The electromagentic energy of cooked foods, however is dramatically lower than that of raw foods. Raw foods with life force optimize health by alkalizing your body so that its
systems can eliminate the toxins via the lymph and kidneys that build up from cooked and
processed foods. Eating a mostly cooked and high animal protein diet contributes to high
levels of acidic toxins in the body that throws off its acid/alkaline
balance. This is one of the most common causes of excess weight
gain and dis-eased states. Cooking food also causes chemical changes that create acidic
toxins, including carcinogens, mutagens and free radicals, reducing
the body’s energy source and adding body fat.
CAN YOU DO?
1- DETOX: with grapes, berries, melons, lemons and other highly astringent fruit to remove lymph stagnation and to filter the kidneys.
Moderate exercise is alkalizing to
the body. Excessive exercise (past the point of exhaustion) can
create an acidic problem due to lactic acid buildup. People who
are acidic usually feel worse from exercise because their detoxification
organs are not working properly due to excessive acid in the tissues.
COMBINING: Food combining is
key to creating an alkaline environment because when you combine
properly you reduce putrefaction in the body creating a more alkaline
condition. Eat melons alone. Never mix protein and starch.
DIETARY SUPPLEMENTATION: When
you purchase supplements you must ask yourself what your goal
is and will these supplements actually help alkalize and remove
acid from your body. Fresh pressed Fruit juices and Chlorophyll
(green) drinks are very helpful in filtering
out toxins and acidity in the body.
DRINK LIVING WATER: Fruit is full of Living Water, which heals
body, mind and Spirit. See

Mystery in the Blood
Life Force manifests itself when it acts on the blood that runs through the living body, when, as air, gives breath to the body and so life and the ability to think. Air, blood, life and thought are inseparable.
The Soul is identified with the engine of the living body and is considered the principle of life. It spreads throughout the body, through breath and blood, from lungs and the heart. Clearly, the Soul corresponds to the air introduced into the body by the action of lungs (breath), which spreads around it through blood and the heart and finally manifests in the mental activity as the form of vital activity that it is.
The Soul is identified with life, with material elements of life like breath and air, and blood, and involves the functioning of body organs. But it is not confined to them; physically transcends the body, comes from outside and is immortal, as the air is.
& Intestinal Health
digestive system is the medium through which food becomes consciousness.
How we chew our food determines whether we assimilate what we
consume. Chewing our liquids and drinking our solids engages
our mouth saliva to begin the process of digestion. Remember,
if our teeth do not chew our foods then our stomach must.
comes to staying healthy - and keeping a digestive system happy
and working well, probiotics are an option used all over the
world whether through using fermentation or supplementation.
Science now recognizes that 80% of our immune system lives in
our digestive tract. In fact, the Flu can express itself only
in an acidic body. To "catch a cold" we need to have
the cellular terrain in the digestive tract where it can grow.
Maintaining pH balance of internal fluids guarantees the prevention
