The 21st Centuries’ Fitness Guide!

Four exercise plans to lose weight, firm up and gain energy.

Choose the one that’s right for you!

The durability of the great fitness boom is credited largely to the common-sense appeal of a stronger heart and healthier body. But in fact, not everyone is sweating just for the health of it. A checklist of other motives would include weight loss, increased energy and bigger muscles. They add up to a body that is a source of both comfort and pride to its owner.

A single-minded focus on health also ignores the range of shapes, sizes, abilities and temperaments that defines individuals. A fitness regimen your neighbour or colleague loves may leave you bored and barely advanced toward your own goals. All the weight training in the world will not take the kgs off, for example; 40 miles of running a week will not build muscles. To motivate dropouts, the 50 per cent who quit an exercise programme within six months, fitness experts are shifting away from programmes based solely on cardiovascular workouts. Rather, they are looking harder at individual aims and goals, and taking strength and flexibility more seriously. To be sure, aerobics is still central to a well-rounded fitness programme, but there is more emphasis now on being responsive to what people want to do and want to get out of it.

To illustrate this new pragmatic approach, here are expert-designed programmes for Sarah, John, Susan, and Michael, four hypothetical persons who want to look and feel better as well as to strengthen their hearts. All are assumed to be free of medical conditions that would keep them from exercising. Your profile or goals may not duplicate those of our hypothetical examples. But the examples are peppered with useful details for anyone concerned with strength, flexibility, weight control, cardiovascular endurance and injury prevention. Each example is paired with a proposed 12-week fitness programme. These programmes can help you build your own. Continue reading »

Underweight and Overweight – Powerful Natural Remedies Revealed!

Your normal weight is dependent upon three factors: height, age and skeletal structure. Naturally the weight of the individual should alter through the several stages of life. And, quite as naturally, the amount and kind of food needed to maintain the proper weight will also vary, dependent upon the person’s occupation and general activity.

To say that overweight is the result of overeating is like saying that a fire is the result of a match. Who struck the match? What caused the overeating? Overeating is not a cause but rather a result. Have you noticed how your eating habits vary when you are occupied and when you are not occupied: when you are lonely and when you are not; when you are tense and when you are relaxed? The busy, satisfied and relaxed people of the world are rarely overweight. The idle, lonely and nervous people frequently are.

When you are not occupied and feel that you should be, you eat to excuse your idleness. (“I’ll do it after supper – after I have a sandwich – as soon as I’m through eating – one must eat, you know.”)

When you are lonely, you eat to replace the satisfaction of friendship. When you are nervous, you eat to forget the cause of that tension or despair. Here again is proof of the inseparability of mind and body.

The unfortunate result of unhappiness is not only overeating, but consuming worthless, fattening foods. The act of replacing some need of mind or soul with body food is a form of blackmail. You are “buying off” the mind through ransom paid the body. Naturally this ransom must be a luxurious one. That is why the unhappy people of the world dote on chocolates, ice-cream, rich cakes and the like. And here a ridiculous contradiction frequently takes place. The unhappy soul stuffs him or herself with appetite-murderers and frequently neglects the essential foods for health. Thus, contradictory as it may appear, many people are a stone and a half and two stone overweight and yet anaemic, undernourished, suffering the ravages of malnutrition! Continue reading »

A Complete Guide To Healthy Eating!

[Read: Natural Height Increasing MethodsGrow Taller 4 Idiots]

Are you attempting to get life from dead foods?

In recent years more people have come to realize the importance of selecting the foods that will most benefit their health. This interest in the life-giving values of food is good and marks here a great advance in human welfare.

EAT ALL FOODS AS CLOSE TO THEIR NATURAL STATE AS POSSIBLE

Most food is overcooked. What is more, many people have the habit of peeling vegetables, potatoes in particular. They should never be peeled, for the most valuable element lie directly under or in the skin.

DON’T USE SODA TO ADD “GREEN” TO VEGETABLES

There are two dangers here. Soda destroys the vitamin content of food, and it reacts on aluminium to produce poisonous substances which enter your blood stream.

GET YOUR VITAMINS AND MINERALS NATURALLY. DON’T RELY ON “ENRICHED” AND “VITAMINIZED” PRODUCTS.

Nature has provided an abundant supply of vitamins and minerals in foods in their raw state. If you have not destroyed them by peeling or overcooking, you will receive an adequate supply so long as you eat a rational diet. The so-called enriched foods have already been devitalized. The mere addition of a chemical equivalent of the necessary vitamins and minerals does not compensate for the loss of natural food elements. Continue reading »

Ulcers – Powerful Natural Remedies Revealed!

If you had a pound for every person who has been “cured” two or more times of his ulcers, you would be a wealthy person – probably with ulcers. For some reason, totally unknown to me, ulcers are considered an ailment of the wealthy. (Probably by the same people who think money brings happiness.) Again, if you had a pound for all the low and moderate income people who suffer from ulcers, you would be able to balance the national budget. Ulcers will live on any income.

Obviously those who claim to have been “cured” several times of their ulcers are really saying that the pains have been alleviated momentarily. But this is no cure. The disease cannot be cured until the cause is known and treated. Rarely is the cause of ulcers treated, but rather the effect; that hole in the stomach called an ulcer is doused with milk, cheese, drugs, etc., and then permitted to gouge itself out and start the same painful symptoms all over again.

People who never worry do not have ulcers. People who have knowledge of what they are doing on earth and why they must do it, also rarely suffer from ulcers. Tense, worried, nervous and unhappy people are the prime target of stomach and duodenal ulcers.

M. K. had suffered from duodenal ulcers for eight years. He had been “cured” of them five times – before a state of painful collapse. He left sanatorium ten days later without a trace of his ulcer. How? Continue reading »

Prostate Infection – Powerful Natural Remedies Revealed!

A painful and somewhat common condition among older men, prostate infection can generally be traced to diet deficiency and infection from waste matter retained too long within the system. When a rational diet is observed, few cases of prostate infection will be noted. In particular, Vitamins A and C must be consumed in maximum digestible quantities. The Fountain of Youth Cocktail provides large amounts of both of these and, when used to fortify a rational diet, will help to overcome both such deficiencies.

The natural programme for treating prostate infection involved the non-stimulating diet, reinforced with the Fountain of Youth Cocktail and additional amounts of citrus and carrot juice. Full enemas were provided for a period of three days followed by a small rectal douche daily until the condition subsided. Steam compresses (a heating pad may be used) were prescribed each evening and warm compresses during the night. Regular use of the Fountain of Youth Cocktail helped to stimulate the eliminatory system sufficiently after the first ten days and the small enemas were therefore discontinued. Air- and sun-bathing were considered essential in nature’s programme for treatment of the prostate. Continue reading »

Piles (Haemorrhoids) – Powerful Natural Remedies Revealed!

The eliminatory diet and internal cleansing were prescribed for all such conditions. Affusions of the rectal area for a period of fifteen minutes daily proved the most remarkable treatment of this disorder. I have known of many who have treated this condition right within their own homes with the pressure provided by the flow of water from bath taps. Cold (6o°) high-pressure affusions were directed to the rectal area during these treatments, which were continued until complete alleviation of this condition was attained. The general course of treatment ran no more than two weeks. This is but another proof of the infallibility of nature’s cure.

Neuritis, Rheumatics, Rheumatism – Powerful Natural Remedies Revealed!

NEURITIS

This inflammation of the nerves is a common and painful condition which may affect any part of the body, particularly that area which is most involved in your daily labour. Nerve cells are sensitive to a lack of Vitamin B-1 and the increase of consumption of this essential matter (provided for in the Fountain of Youth Cocktail) frequently is all the treatment needed for neuritis.

Unlike arthritis, neuritis is not caused by infection. And unlike rheumatism, neuritis does not confine itself to joint areas, its home lying anywhere throughout the body’s nervous system. It is now widely realized that neuritis is frequently induced through worry, fear and despair. This is another instance of the inseparable relationship between body and mind. The treatment for neuritis may therefore begin with a better understanding of the individual and his place in Nature’s pattern.

RHEUMATICS

Chronic rheumatism can be said to have caused more human misery than all the wars fought since the beginning of time. Only a person who has had his body racked with the pain of chronic rheumatics can truly understand the truth of this statement. The dull throbbing pain that lingers day and night, intensifying during periods of cold and damp, is a mortal enemy of man and a direct product of modern man’s flight from nature. Improper diet, lack of sufficient sunlight and a body that has not been hardened by Nature’s agents are largely responsible for rheumatic conditions.

It is necessary to distinguish acute rheumatics or rheumatic fever from the more common ailment known as chronic rheumatism or simply, rheumatism. While rheumatic fever may cause chronic rheumatism, it is by no means the sole cause. The pain of rheumatism comes without fever and the affected joints need show no outward sign of the ailment, but are generally cold and stiff. Continue reading »

Headaches – Powerful Natural Remedies Revealed!

The causes of headaches are many and it is always advisable to understand the root of all head pains before attempting to counteract them. Since such pains are Nature’s means of warning us of internal disturbances, it is unwise to attempt to treat the headache alone, but rather to understand its origin and treat both cause and symptom.

Among the most common conditions creating headaches can be listed eye strain, stomach disorders, menstruation, hunger, high blood pressure, rheumatics, sinusitis and nervous tension. If you know your body as you should and if you are aware from day to day of your general health, there should be little reason for you not to be able to recognize and treat the cause of your headache.

While each case was individually diagnosed and treated, there was a general course of treatment used to alleviate headaches. The full pack was prescribed, to be taken for a period of one hour. Cold compresses were applied during the pack. Immediately following this the patient was bathed in lukewarm water (86°). Finally, cold affusions (water jets) were directed at the head and back of the neck. In the case of the nervous headache, the affusions were also directed at the spinal column, running slowly up and down the length of the patient’s back. The affusions proved particularly successful. Light diets, particularly vegetarian, were also prescribed.

Zone therapy was used with amazing results in treating chronic headaches. I recall a woman of thirty who had suffered the pain of chronic headaches for a period of two years without relief. The woman was despondent upon entering the sanatorium and it was necessary that her condition be dealt with at once, lest she lost her sanity entirely. Demanding that the woman open her mouth, I thrust a flat metal object into her mouth and pressed upon the roof of the mouth with such strength as to almost cause the woman to cry out. Five minutes later, when the metal device (similar to an ordinary tablespoon) was removed from her mouth, the woman was unable to believe her own senses. The headache, partner to her two-year misery, had entirely disappeared. Continue reading »

Gall Bladder Infections – Powerful Natural Remedies Revealed!

The programme for alleviating the pain of gallstones and gall-bladder infections involves a complete cleansing of the system. A three-day fast involving the intake of no solid foods and a quart of Fountain of Youth Cocktail daily was the standard beginning treatment. For gall-bladder conditions the Fountain of Youth Cocktail was reinforced with the liquid derived from an additional four tablespoons of wheat germ and a cup of chopped kale or carrot tops. These increased intake of Vitamins K and E, generally found deficient in gall-bladder conditions.

The first day of treatment, the patient was internally cleansed with a full enema and a two-hour steam bath. For two days following, a small enema was continued mice a day. Abdominal compresses were prescribed during the night. Sun-baths were an important part of the treatment, as were abdominal exercises; full knee bending, trunk turning and the like, to stimulate and tone up the abdominal area. The steam bath was continued on the second and third day, this time for periods of one hour a day.

On the fourth day, lean meats, eggs or fish, twice daily, were added to the diet, and steam baths were discontinued. In their place, warm (8o°) natural baths were prescribed nightly and cold rubs each morning. The friction rub was observed twice daily, following the morning cold rub and the evening natural bath.

Fibroid Tumour – Powerful Natural Remedies Revealed!

Among the most painful and dangerous of female disorders is the fibroid tumour of the uterus. In part, the danger is psychological rather than physical. The increased incidence of cancer together with a wide publicity campaign has made the public highly cancer-conscious. For this reason, the discovery of almost any tumour on the body will generally strike terror into the heart of the strongest person. Thus the relatively common fibroid tumour which attacks the uterus is often mistaken for a malignant tumour (cancer), and the resultant shock is almost as destructive as the growth itself.

Since the possibility of cancer always exists where an unnatural growth is discovered, it is important that the patient be immediately examined. Time is essential, since medical science has made great strides in the treatment of cancers which have been detected in an early stage. Learn these signs of possible cancer by heart:

  1. Constant bleeding despite efforts to staunch the flow.
  2. Repeated and severe attacks of indigestion.
  3. Sudden growth or change in shape of a mole, birthmark, etc.
  4. Discolouration of stool (bowel movement).
  5. Painful or sore lump or spot on or beneath the skin which refuses to heal.

As for the- fibroid tumour of the uterus, this may be the size of a pea or smaller and may grow to the size of a lemon or larger. Though it originates in the uterus, the tumour may grow into the uterine cavity during its maturation. Continue reading »
