Recommendations for Better Health

1.      Drink plenty of water every day. Herbal tea is fine. Drink at least 8-10 eight ounce glasses a day. A good rule of thumb is to drink enough water to equal ½ your body weight in ounces. For example: a 150 lb. person needs 75 ounces of water every day. Purified, spring or distilled with added minerals - please, no tap water!


2.      Eat a healthy diet:


a)     Eat at least one large green salad every day (not the small side salad that comes with dinner). Make sure the salad has leafy greens, such as romaine, butter lettuce, green leaf, spinach, etc. NO ICEBERG LETTUCE. It causes gas and leaches the body of minerals.


b)     Eat 2-4 cups of vegetables every day, raw or slightly steamed.


c)     Get fiber into your diet. Eat 1-2 cups of cooked whole grains every day. Use the long cooking or whole old-fashioned variety. They have more fiber and more nutrients. Oatmeal for breakfast is great.


d)     Don’t forget to eat fruit. Five fruits per day is suggested, providing you don’t have any blood sugar problems. Bananas are constipating for most - they are mostly carbohydrates. Maybe ½ if you need potassium is OK for most.


e)     Do not eat bread products. Any starchy carbohydrates such as bread, pasta, potatoes, bagels, crackers, muffins, etc. will constipate you - even whole-wheat products. The recommended serving is 2-3 portions of wheat-free, sprouted grain bread PER WEEK. We recommend Ezekiel Bread produced with live grains and without flour. Food for Life


f)       STAY AWAY FROM DAIRY PRODUCTS. Dairy products cause mucous. The only dairy product with any good value is plain unsweetened yogurt, due to the friendly bacteria it contains. Good bacteria like acidophilus bifidus helps rid our bodies of gas, boosts the immune system and helps fight candida.


g)     Avoid soy products. They rob your body of calcium and it creates gas for many people. Go to for more information on the drawbacks of consuming soy products.


h)     NO CAFFEINE! This includes decaffeinated coffee and chocolate of all kinds. These are some of the worst things you can put into your body, so try to eliminate them altogether. Caffeine robs your body of calcium.


i)       Try to juice fresh veggies at least 3 times per week.


3.      Take acidophilus bifidus capsules (or liquid equivalent) 2 times per day.  Friendly-bacteria is very necessary for a healthy intestinal tract. We carry premium grade acidophilus here at the office as well as a large assortment of herbs and supplements.


4.      Supplements may be helpful. You can take charcoal capsules if you are gassy. Aloe capsules can be used if you are constipated.


5.      Take 1 tablespoon of UNFILTERED raw apple cider vinegar (please, not pasteurized) OR fresh lemon juice in 8-10 oz. room temperature water first thing every morning. This sets up the digestive tract properly for the day.


6.      EXERCISE!  Do some form of cardiovascular exercise at least 3-4 times per-week. This helps all of your bodily functions, including metabolism, and gives you an overall good feeling. So get moving!





  • Chew your food as much as possible.
  • Do not eat too fast.
  • Do not mix fruit with other foods. This creates instant gas. Fruit needs to be eaten about 45 minutes before other foods or 3 hours after. Fruit needs its own digestive enzymes.
  • Don’t drink with a straw.
  • Don’t chew gum.
  • NO SODA or carbonated beverages (including sparkling water). These cause severe gas.
  • AVOID ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS of any kind—no diet sodas or any diet products. Only stevia is acceptable. Stevia can be found at health food stores and comes in packets or liquid.
