Journey Towards Health

Renuka Berry

Respect and love your body. Be alert to any signals of disease, indicating that something is not working right in the body. These can include pain in a part or parts of the body, indigestion, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea, flatulence, vomiting, fatigue, anxiety, irregular hair or nail growth, excessive fluid retention, or bloating, just to mention a few.


If you want to be healthy and alive, you have to get foods with life of their own into your body. By choosing the best fuel for the body, you can promote dramatic improvement in energy level and a generally enhanced sense of well being.The following are rules for the journey towards health and a vibrant life.

Selection of Food
Select the freshest foods you can find. As food sits for long periods of time it becomes stale with poor flavour, texture and appearance, rancid if it contains oils (grains, nuts, seeds), depleted of nutrients which are destroyed by exposure to oxygen in the air.

Focus on fresh vegetables and fruits, and raw untoasted, unroasted grains and cereals.

Look for reliable sources for organic produce and grains, and use these as much as possible in your daily menus.

Cooking Style
Use the simplest, shortest cooking methods possible when preparing your food in order to insure optimum retention of nutrients. In other words, steam vegetables only to the point of el dente, grill fish and chicken until just done, steam rice or grains until tender and then remove from heat immediately. Gently simmer on low heat rather than boiling on high heat.

Aim to eat at least 50% of your vegetables and fruits in their raw form. This preserves the vitamins, minerals and active enzymes, which may be destroyed by heat and water during the cooking process. Your body requires a full profile of all of these nutrients, which work together, when in proper balance, to create the potential for every metabolic function within the body to take place.

Eat the skins of your produce items (fruits and vegetables) whenever possible. Many of the essential nutrients are right under the skin. For example, apples and cucumber are most beneficial when eaten with their skin.

Choose whole vegetables and fruits over their juices. The fiber which is discarded in the production of the juice is very high in vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals (plant chemicals), all of which are essential in the prevention of disease and illness. The juice contains only a portion of what is available in the whole food.

Season foods with natural condiments, such as fresh herbs, fresh garlic, onions, lemon or lime juice, peppers, organic and ethnic vinegars, vegetable flakes and powders, and spices.

Include a wide variety of foods in your diet. This insures a better balance of essential nutrients. What one food lacks, another contains.

Tips to Health

  • Select the highest quality, most natural, organic, whole foods you can get.
  • Minimize the amount and type of food preparation used, with 50% of your food being eaten in a raw state, especially vegetables and fruits.
  • Add a good measure of natural, gentle exercise, about 20 - 30 minutes daily.
  • Drink at least 6 - 8 glasses of water daily, as well as your other beverages.
  • Incorporate a specific time daily (at least 15 minutes) for deep breathing practices, and rest and relaxation.
  • Work on developing and maintaining a healthy, optimistic, loving attitude, towards yourself, as well as others and the world around you.
  • In time you will move through your life with Ease, Confidence, Peace of Mind and Health.
