Organic live food provides the highest-quality nutrient concentrates, the highest-quality phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, and bioelectrical energy, which is quite important for healing and building the vital life force. It is not only activating and energizing the system and repairing it on that level, but repeating the activity in a very simple way.

These are nature's gifts, filled with an incredible array of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that nourish and heal us. The deeper the color, the more antioxidants and other beneficial phytochemicals you're getting. These foods also are rich in fiber that aids in digestion and carbohydrates that break down slowly for steady energy. Some even contain protein. To support your movement towards a more colorful diet, refer to Eat Your Colors by Marcia Zimmerman, M.Ed., C.N. (Owl Books, 2001), and What Color is Your Diet by David Heber, M.D. (HarperCollins, 2001).

The 12-15 pounds of produce juiced fresh each day will contain all the protein, fat, carbohydrates, enzymes, phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals you require. In fact, you will actually be consuming more bioavailable nutrition than you perhaps ever have in your lifetime, due to the nutrient density of the foods you are juicing, and the superfoods, essential fatty acids, and supplements you add. Here is your baseline for a Juice Feast of 4-5 quarts per day of nutrient-dense green juices made with the following ingredients: ?Base—celery, cucumber ?
Most important, these phytonutrients turn off the diabetes-causing genes and turn on the anti-diabetic genes. In Genetic Nutritioneering, Jeffrey Bland, PhD, explains how the hormone insulin indirectly speaks to the genes and alters gene expression. Insulin also influences the other hormones in the body. A healthy flow of insulin in the body not only helps us control blood sugar, but is linked to a healthy balance of many other hormones, including insulinlike growth factor, human growth hormone, Cortisol, somatostatin, serotonin, noradrenalin, and leptin.
The Tree of Life World Cuisine naturally stimulates and reactivates the anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and anti-diabetic genes, and turns off the diabetes-causing genes with the aid of the rainbow menu of phytonutrients.

Its leaves contain phytonutrients with numerous health-enhancing effects. Kale This nutritious vegetable comes in quite a few variations and colors—green and purple being the most common. It is part of a typical traditional diet in parts of Africa where people live very long and healthy lives. Kale is a rich source of various anti-cancer compounds. Being a member of the cruciferous family, it is endowed with anti-cancer indoles that help regulate estrogen and fight off colon cancer. It contains more beta carotene than spinach and twice as much lutein, the most of any vegetable tested.

Where you find a healthy dose of phytonutrients, you often find a cornucopia of vitamins and minerals. Calcium and Magnesium for Women Women have an extra need for these minerals, so you would do well to add a calcium/magnesium supplement containing the proper ratio of these important macronutrients. Avoid carbonate forms of calcium (e.g., Turns), and instead look for a calcium-magnesium chelate containing a 2:1 ratio. This would be taken in addition to your multivitamin-mineral formula.

According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005, nutrient-dense foods are those foods that provide the highest amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and phytonutrients per calorie.4 For example, superfood algaes and vegetables are considered most nutrient-dense. Products containing added sugars, saturated fats, and alcohol are considered nutrient-poor. Therefore, when you eat nutrient-poor foods, you eat more food to get an equivalent amount of nutrition. Second, nutrient density is defined as a ratio of food energy from carbohydrate, protein, or fat to the total food energy.
It brings in phytonutrients that further activate the anti-aging and anti-diabetic genetic effect. Generally, it improves all aspects of health. This is the key to the program, and everything else supports this foundation. Once we have reached a certain level of repair and have returned to a normal healthy physiology, we do not need to use all these herbs and supplements. We also will move clients from a Phase 1.0 to a Phase 1.5 and often will stop the supplements after people have returned to and sustained a normal physiology for three to six months.

I believe that everyone should be on a solid core program consisting of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, flavonoids, carot-enoids, B vitamin complex, and mixed tocopherols. In addition, we should take at least 1 gram of fish oil a day regardless of our health. A multivitamin/mineral complex with 1 gram of fish oil is a must for all of us. In anyone with a history of coronary calcification, coronary artery disease or in those with stents or bypass, I would also strongly recommend vitamin K2.

These easily digested food supplements are loaded with protein, vitamins, minerals, herbs, and phytonutrients from nutritionally dense super foods that both enhance the cleansing experience and provide needed nutrients to support the renewal of a healthy body. Choose from a whole-food multinutrient from pea and rice protein if you are vegetarian. Again, you'll find both liquid greens and whole-food multinutrient supplements at health food stores, or see the Resource Directory for specific suppliers.
Not that the fiber of fruits and vegetables isn't wonderful for you, but you can also get a concentrated amount of the phytonutrients plants have to offer by juicing. The benefit juicing has to offer to detoxification comes with the plants you choose to juice. Vegetables are preferable over fruits, as juicing many fruits concentrates the sugars found in fruit. Start with a dark green leafy base of kale or chard, and add vegetables such as beets, celery, and some lemon for taste or half an apple to sweeten it up a bit.
Kale, chard, or any dark green leafy vegetable: contain phytonutrients known to stop the damage of free radicals ?Fresh-squeezed lemon juice: alkalizing to the body, stimulating bile production and cleansing the kidneys Why Raw Foods Trump Cooked Foods Since meats are generally prepared at a temperature of at least 350 degrees and grains at 325 degrees or more, wholesale enzyme destruction occurs when these foods are cooked. Any processed foods, even uncooked, are devoid of enzymes due to the heat applied in the refining process.

These phytonutrients act as antioxidants and, according to Gittleman, provide nutritional support for the detoxification pathways in the body. The rich phytonutrient content of both cranberries and cranberry juice has been borne out by research and may have an awful lot of benefits that go beyond relief from urinary tract infection. In one study, biochemist Yuegang Zuo, Ph.D., from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, showed that cranberry juice cocktail had the highest total phenol content of twenty fruit juices tested. (Phenolic compounds are natural antioxidants.

But there is more to these cereal grass juices -- they also have phytonutrients that have been well demonstrated to treat chronic diseases such as cancer. In fact, wheat grass juice is one of the best supplements you can put into your body if you are currently fighting or trying to prevent cancer. And here in this formula you get both wheat grass juice and barley grass juice. So it's an outstanding combination of superfoods. The next ingredient is organic sesame seed. This is a healthy oil and healthy fiber ingredient. Sesame seeds also have an anti-cancer effect that's very well documented.

Hospitals may be hazardous to your health

Even the hospital menus offer foods that are nutritionally deficient and that will give you blood sugar swings while offering virtually no healthy oils or phytonutrients to fight off cancer. These are foods that I wouldn't even feed my dog, because it would be animal cruelty. The foods are part of the hospital's standard menu. Some of the hospitals have fast food right on the premises. You can come in for heart bypass surgery and grab a cheeseburger and fries on the way out. Nothing like repeat business to keep the money coming in, huh?

They contain beta carotine, they are high in vitamins and minerals, and they're loaded with phytonutrients that actually prevent chronic disease. I can say that independently, although the company that makes this product probably couldn't make that kind of claim, but the facts are out about this, and we know nutrition really works to prevent disease, and we know that Chinese wolfberries, or the NingXia wolfberries, contain phenomenal quantities of phytonuytrients.

I mean, the understanding of what phytonutrients are, of what phytochemicals are and into which category antioxidants are categorized is a whole new waking science about their benefits. There's a new frontier of "cosmeceuticals" and other forms of life-extending and vanity drugs and medicines that are gaining more and more popularity, but again, they're brand new in this 21st century, and you know what?

They have almost no understanding of the role of phytonutrients in healing, and they do not recognize or use the healing power of foods to help patients create a healing result. Instead, they often turn to drugs, which are more dangerous than healing foods. They don't work as well and they're far more expensive. Credibility must be demonstrated In order to have credibility when you're talking about health, you must be able to demonstrate health on your own. So, when a group of doctors attacks my work, saying that I have no credibility, I immediately take a look at their level of health.

With the raspberry concentrates in this product, you have another complementary fruit concentrate that has a variety of healing phytonutrients. So you've got blueberries and raspberries together here -- it's a little bit like eating a few berries from the orchard. If you can get one of these food bars into your body every day, you're going to be giving yourself the benefits without having to walk outside and pick fruits off a bush. Now obviously it would be more beneficial if you could get all of these ingredients in their fresh, unprocessed form.
Spirulina contains very powerful anti-cancer phytonutrients and phytochemicals. It is also a complete source of highly digestible protein. I've often said that spirulina's protein is 12 times more digestible than beef, ounce per ounce -- and it's absolutely true. If you are having trouble digesting protein, as many people are who are over 60 years of age, then spirulina is a fantastic source for making sure you get high quality protein assimilated into your body. Spirulina also contains some healthy oils such as GLA, an oil that is essential for the healthy functioning of your nervous system.

Of course, the antioxidants and other phytonutrients in cranberries may also help protect against heart disease, cancer, and other diseases. And the studies keep on coming. Blueberries have been shown to help improve memory, unclog arteries, enhance vision, strengthen blood vessels, stop urinary tract infections, promote weight control, and reverse symptoms of aging. Vegetables get in on the act as well. Broccoli contains high levels of vitamin C and beta-carotene—powerful antioxidants that fight age- and disease-causing free radicals.

There are also many other phytonutrients in flaxseed, but we won't go into that. Suffice it to say, this is an excellent ingredient. And you'll notice they used sprouted flax seeds instead of just tossing in dry flax seeds. When they've sprouted they have a much higher nutritional content. When a seed germinates, it creates a storehouse of vitamins and enzymes that it will need in order to grow and thrive as a live, healthy plant. So eating sprouted grains or seeds is always much better for you than just grinding up the dry seeds and eating those.

Researchers are studying the effects of phytonutrients in the blue-green algae spirulina as potential weapons in the fight to cure AIDS. Initial studies indicate these compounds tend to prevent the AIDS virus from attaching to or penetrating cells. Spirulina is also a good supplement for maintaining energy. Q| The only truly safe sex is sex between life partners who are HIV-free. Other than that, abstinence is the only way to avoid any chance of infection with a sexually transmitted disease (STD).
Recommendations Q Eat a simple, well-balanced diet with plenty of raw, fresh fruits and green and yellow vegetables to ensure a good supply of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. Q Essential fatty acids (EFAs) have been shown to play an integral role in the health of the skin. Taken internally or applied externally as a lotion, they help maintain the integrity and elasticity of the skin, as well as preventing a loss of moisture, which leads to dry and scaly skin.

Spirulina contains phytonutrients that appear to boost the immune system. ž Tea tree oil is a powerful natural antiseptic. During a herpes outbreak, dab it lightly on the affected area several times a day, either full strength or, if that is too strong, diluted with distilled water or cold-pressed vegetable oil. Do not get tea tree oil close to the eye area. Q Other herbs useful for herpes treatment include cayenne (capsicum), echinacea, myrrh, red clover, and St. John's wort.

There's a whole Universe of phytonutrients found in blueberries that have healing effects. If you're not eating fresh blueberries on a regular basis, as I hope you would consider doing, then the Organic Food Bar is one good way to get them into your diet. I'm a great proponent of getting nutrition through wholefood concentrates, not through isolated vitamins. If you were to actually list all of the vitamins and minerals found in blueberry powder, it would be a very long list.

You have a genetic blueprint to consume low-glycemic foods, high-fiber foods, foods with natural minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients. This compatibility is in your genes. Unprocessed, uncooked foods right out of nature are what you are designed to consume. So it only makes sense that, as you move closer to that diet -- known as the raw foods vegan diet -- you will attain a state of perfect harmony with yourself. It only makes sense that any deviation from that -- processed foods, factory foods, foods with a long shelf life, etc. -- will take you away from a state of perfect health.
