"Core Principles to Enhance Health
HYDRATION - Optimal purified water intake is a minimum of your body weight in ounces (if you weighed 140 lbs and divide that by two you get the number 70; therefore you should consume 70 ounces of water in a day). Fluids should be consumed approximately 15 minutes before meals on an empty stomach and a minimum of two hours after properly combined meals other than fruit.
BALANCED DIET - An optimal diet consisting primarily of the following plant foods: fruits, vegetables, grains, soaked nuts and seeds, is ideal. Eliminating refined sugars and flour from the diet as well as other processed foods is important for improving health as is decreasing the intake of saturated fats from animal foods such as meat and dairy.
COMBINE WHEN YOU DINE! - Minimizing the complexity of meals through proper food combining can increase digestive efficiency ensuring an internal environment more conducive to proper digestion; it may reduce gas, acid indigestion and other consequences of ill combinations. (See food combining chart)
FOOD ROTATION - Eating a variety of local, seasonal, organic foods helps supply balanced nutrients including trace minerals and vitamins. Also, applying this principle may decrease any food sensitivities.
EXERCISE - Get Moving! Exercise increases optimum health by reducing stress, providing circulation and toning to your muscles. Plus, you may fit in your favorite clothes and feel better about yourself when you are in better shape."
