Being Selfishly Healthy. Part Two.


Are you part of the sandwich generation – ailing parents and children of your own to support? Turn the clock back 100 years and it would be difficult, today it is extremely tough.

Does your diet support you while you support everyone else?
Learn what labels mean. For example, Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is not the same as eating fresh fruit and vegetables. It is an isolated, DNA- laboratory, petro-chemical copy of the naturally occurring vitamin C. When you eat, for example, Kiwi fruit, there are other micro-nutrients which help the body assimilate and metabolise it for maximum benefit.

In today’s day and age we have the invaluable help of search engines to run our own research and make better informed choices.

You will see, for example, that many conventional and old school commentators say that there is no difference in taste between organic and mass produced, chemically sprayed food. In my experience that has not been true but that is not the reason to eat organically.

Organic food contains 29% more anti-oxidants than mass produced, sprayed, genetically fiddled with food and anti-oxidants are your foot soldiers which run around killing off the free radicals (the terrorists!)

Eat more raw greens – “greens” contain chlorophyll and chlorophyll was coined as “living sunshine” by Ann Wigmore who founded the Hippocrates health institute in 1908 after studying traditional methods from Sweden and Lithuania and cured herself (and her cat) of cancer with raw foods and in particular wheat grass juice. The key to this is to source and eat unadulterated greens free of chemicals.

Cut out spreads that contain hydrated fats – email for fact sheet on how they are produced on There is no living organism that I know of that attacks these spreads, no bacteria, insect, bird or animal. That is telling you something.

And you can do this. Small changes, start by eating 20% more organic greens a day. You don’t need to be Einstein; order an organic food box from somewhere reputable like Abel and Cole and have it delivered to your doorstep.

Combine this with reduction of refined sugar and processed foods as soon as possible. Don’t snack on crisps, chocolate bars, biscuits, cakes and other almost irresistible little temptations . Instead, have small tomatoes, a few nuts and dried fruit, berries, green apples, kiwi and other green fruits. It is more expensive but worth it and perhaps just needs a bit of prioritising. Do you often have a take-away cappuccino or latte? Think about giving that up and treating your body to fresh insecticide/pesticide free veg instead. Just small changes, 123 and ABC. Try it and see how you feel after a few weeks, not tomorrow or the next day, we are going at your body’s pace not the pharmaceutical Industry’s artificial chemically altering pace.
