THE SCIENCE OF TISSUE CLEANSING

Despite a clumsy name, homotoxicology is a wonderful natural healing science. It is a therapeutic branch which enables deep cleansing of the body tissues, removing old toxins, disease processes and degenerative debris, leaving the fluids clean, fresh and able to function as intended.

Based on homeopathy, but not quite the same thing, homotoxicology is the brain child of German doctor Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg (1905-1985). Knowing homeopathy and drawing on a vast knowledge of herbal lore and medicines, he compounded a store of remedies which trod a line between folk medicine and basic plant pharmacology. In the course of time it has proved itself so well that tens of thousands of German doctors use it in daily practice, although less well known in the rest of the world.

DO YOU WANT TO LIVE FOREVER?

Do you want to live forever? Probably not! But most of us would be reassured to know we will feel fit, well and active right up to the end.

"I don't want to be an old crumbly" is the usual response. Well, being an old wreck is what happens when you don't attend to anti-ageing principles. Because, make no mistake, you are likely to live a lot longer than you think. Statistics show that of those who are presently in their 50s and are on good health today, fully 55% will reach the age of 100!

IT'S BETTER TO EAT DOG FOOD!

There probably isn't a more important subject in medicine than nutrition. Yet conventional colleagues continue to declaim that it's a waste of time and all you need is in a "balanced diet". A balance of what? Junk food, which has been vitiated and all the goodness removed? Aw, come on! The trouble is with doctors (some doctors) is that it's got to be really gross before they can see it. Beri-beri or Pellagra they can remember from text books. But the common degrees of malnutrition you see in the streets and homes of London, New York, Paris, or anywhere in the Western world escapes them. Apparently the person is not "unhealthy" until they just about drop dead.

That's not what we want. We want vibrant, toned, supple, healthy bodies that are a joy to occupy and sing our lives with. Good health isn't "not malfunctioning" but "the best we can get".

Even if the dopes don't accept that 98% is healthy but that 88% is unhealthy, there's another important angle on this that all who tend the sick must know. As I say constantly in my public lectures: you cannot heal anybody of anything if there is a deficiency of the basic nutritional buildings blocks. I'm sorry if this offends people, even alternative practitioners, but it's all a waste of time doing Reiki, reflexology, Chi Gung, scenar, massage, homeopathy or anything else if the body hasn't got the basic materials for health!

I'm not talking about gross nutritional deficiency or malnourishment. That's a problem for the Third World and unless you are working in that environment, the malnutrition you will meet is lack of enough of the basic health vitamins, key minerals, enzymes, co-factors and all the other stuff. And I don't care WHAT the homeopaths and other enthusiasts say about "potentized magnesium, D10, C200 etc." - forget it - give them the magnesium, for goodness sake (magnesium is just an example, but we are all threatened with severe magnesium deficiency with modern farming and food manufacturing methods).

The best people at nutrition are the veterinary experts. They would not dream of letting an animal go to stud in the pathetic nutritionally compromised state of most humans. They learned long ago that the right balance of nutrients is essential for vitality and longevity in anything from a cockatoo to a pedigree horse. Why is it that what is good for animals is unimportant for humans? It's just another case of specialist isolation; knowledge from one field is ignored completely in another. If you think I'm overstating it, take a look at a can of pet food. Lynne McTaggart did. She found that dog food contained the equivalent of 8000 IU of vitamin A, 464 mgm of vitamin E and 812 mgm of vitamin D (Source: What Doctors Don't Tell You, Vol 13 no 9, Dec 2002). That's way over the recommended daily allowance for humans and far more than the European Parliament intends to allow its citizens in upcoming laws. What --- dogs deserve better than voters? It doesn't even make sense for politicians, does it?

You'll have to educate yourself about nutrition, there's really no choice. Fight for your own health. Don't expect any help from the medical profession or government advisors. Ignorance in doctors can kill you. For example vitamin A is known to protect against cancerous changes in cells (hundreds of studies support this), yet standard medical advice is now to severely limit the intake of vitamin A. Why? Because it can be toxic if you take it at idiot levels. Well aspirin at idiot levels will kill you for sure, but we don't hear any calls for its removal.

There are lots of books to advize you and thousands of websites to supply you through your letter box, even without the FDA's consent! Live healthy, live long!

LET'S TALK ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS!

It's one of the biggest industries in the world! There is a never ending stream of weight loss books, magazine articles, diet aids and propaganda. It's not a stream, it's actually a tidal wave. I've seen just about every claim that has been made: eat more of X, eat less of X, eat more of Y, eat less of Y, any diet will make you gain weight, fat is beautiful anyway (it isn't, it's unhealthy), and so on. It's a jungle of predatory lions trying to get at your money. People with whacky opinions have found they can make a fortune out of this desperate market; they write books; they pretend expertise. If you're a sucker for it, then there is not much we can do to protect you.

However, there are one or two guiding principles, based on decades of experience that will help you to choose. We are not trying to sell you anything, so at least it is unbiased opinion.

First, the ultimate weight loss plan is eat less! It sounds simple but it's amazing how many people, if they are honest, are searching for ways to lose weight without giving up their guzzling addictions. Eat less does not mean be a supermodel and quit food. Less can mean just cut down by 10%. Look, if your weight is a steady six stones over the ideal, you only need to reduce your intake by 10% and it will start to fall. Logical? If you are on a maintenance food intake, yes, it's logical. If you are gaining steadily, however, you may need to cut down more than that. One of the simplest regimes I know is cut out one meal a day and eat only two thirds of the portions you normally eat.

The second vital fact you need to know is that carbohydrate makes you hungry. The famous "RAF Diet" of the forties was just a low-carbo plan. The famous Scarsdale diet was also a low-carb and worked wonderfully well. People were not hungry! Nowadays Atkins is the big name in low carbo eating. It happens that carbohydrate (flour, starch, sugar etc) is highly addictive. For decades the orthodox medical profession has been telling people to eat carbohydrate. That's got them all hooked on sugar drinks, cookies, tortillas, pizza and the like. The result is an epidemic of obesity. It's advice that kills! Recently, Atkins was proved right. I think the shock of the medical profession beginning to come around killed the poor guy!

Thirdly, nobody needs a schlock product, berries, pills or anything else to lose weight (especially beware of those with Chinese Ma Huang, or ephedrine in them, it's an amphetamine-like substances and will send you spinning). I've seen lot of these over the years and studied them. They all come down to this: take our *product*, follow this eating plan in the "handy guide" and you are guaranteed to lose weight. It's perfectly obvious that if you just followed the eating plan and threw away the *product*, you'd lose weight anyway. To me, this is fraud under the guise of pseudo-science. Where glob and goo products might help is in creating the sense of being on a plan. A reminder you should not be doing what you always do at mealtimes. But it's an expensive way to buy your determination of mind!

Finally, the question of exercise. It has been said that a slice of pizza is about equivalent to an hour of hard tennis. It's easier to give up the pizza than sweat away like that! It's true to a degree. But after following that line for years with my patients I have gradually come to realize the true value of exercise. It isn't for working off calories at all. It's about feeling good (endorphins perhaps), boosting the immune system (a New England Journal of Medicine study showed that exercise boosts white cells in the peripheral blood), keeping up cardiac efficiency, reducing stress, staying supple and youthful, rhythm and a host of other health factors that can't be tabulated as just calories. So, putting the two sides together, one can say that you can eat a bit more liberally if you exercise regularly and, if you want to stay young and feel good, make sure you do between 20- 30 minutes of some exercise, at least 3 times a week. You don't have to be a gym junkie.
