I have visited Don's presentations many times, I bought Don's Farmacist Desk Refernce books for my kids. I really like how he can put the major issues in two powerful sentences, the issues that many scientists spent on years of research. I decided to publish today his
7 Principles of Health.
Air - Clean, Fresh, Moving Air Is The Key Ensure you breathe fresh, moving air every day, the more, the better. Breathe deeply during the day. Make it a habit to take 5 full deep, slow, long breaths outside when you wake in the morning. Keep your windows open, in your house, in your office and in your car! Buy some plants!
Water - A Glass Of Water Is Like Taking An Internal Shower! If you have a headache, drink water. If you have the flu, drink water If you have constipation, drink more water. If you are chronically fatigued, drink more water. If you are overweight, drink more water. If you want youthful skin, drink more water. A baby´s skin is twice as hydrated as an adults. When in doubt, drink more water! Drink a glass of water upon waking To electrify water the way nature does, pour water through the air - from one glass to another, or from a slightly elevated height above the glass Drink 1 glass of water regularly during the day until your urine comes clear. 8 glasses of water a day will be just enough for the average person. If you get signs of dehydration, drink water first!
Sunshine - It Heals Everything Else On The Planet, Why Not You!? Get out in the sun! 20-30 minutes a day on as much of your skins surface as possible Don´t use sunscreen - Get your sunshine between 9-11am in the morning or after 2pm in the afternoon. Don´t always use sunglasses, they can hurt your vision. Moderate! The sun is amazing for your eyes!
Movement - Exercise Is Energy! It´s all about integrating it into your life. If there´s a certain time of the day that you can do exercise, do it then. It will have massive rewards for the rest of your life. If you can only find the time to walk, walk in the sun for 20 minutes, out in the fresh air and before you leave take a bottle of water so you can do one of the simplest but healthiest things you can do for yourself. It doesn´t have to be hard, go easy but go regularly. 5 minutes is better than 0 minutes.
Whole Foods - Are The Heal-thiest! Look at your diet as it is now and be honest with yourself. Review and study the ingredients of your foods you are putting into your body and start questioning what dis-ease they may be contributing to. Slowly and gradually try new whole foods and meals and find ones that you love to eat and make them apart of your life. Try shopping at the local market for the freshest alive foods available. And finally be gentle with yourself because your body will be addicted to so many chemicals that are in the standard western diet, do it in baby steps. Never use drugs that are prescribed to you by doctors; they do not help to get rid of the problem; they only damage your body more and create sickness in different body organs.
Non Toxic And Loving Relationships - Unconditional Love Heals The Heart And The Body Learn to love yourself more by acknowledging what other people could do for you that would make you feel good. Tell them, so they can! And do the same for others! Take time out if you feel overwhelmed by negative emotion. In that state we can only react and usually put our pain onto others. And allow yourself to feel love more often with the people you can. They will love you for it.
Passion - Ignite Or Re-Ignite Your Passion Every day take the time to become a little more clear on what you like and dislike. You are probably going to like the opposite of what you dislike! When you find things that you are passionate about, do them or at least set the date! Write down your ideal day and everyday work on making your day more like that one. Believe that you can live a passion life. Declare how you want your life to be and affirm it every day. Declare you want a vibrant, healthy, passionate life! Make time every day to take action towards your passion or find your passion because no one is going to get up in the morning and be more dedicated to your life than you are. I personally like traveling, art and our Bohemian Rhapsody Club. For Alex - it is poetry, IT and coding and reading. What is yours?:o)
