Vegan Foods: Plant Based Nutrition and Your Health

by Michael Corthell Being healthy takes much more than eating an apple a day (to keep the doctor away). It has been shown that having a healthy immune system requires a balanced diet, good daily rest, and living a positive lifestyle. Knowing that we need to eat the right foods is common sense but the devil, as always, is in the details. What foods are best for us? Some of our nutritional needs are specific to the individual, because of a unique make-up and lifestyle, but there are commonalities. Want to eat right for a healthy life? Get the book that will set you on the right path: How Not to Die by Michael Greger, M.D. The immune system protects us from illness and disease. We can do many things to keep our immune system at it's best. Drink plenty of water. Hydration is important to every system in the body, and the immune system relies heavily on water (as a vehicle) in both in the lymphatic system and blood vessels. Nutrition and exercise play a role in resistin

[Medicine]...prevention is the cure

  The doctor of the future will give no medication but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.  Thomas A. Edison Practicing preventative medicine currently isn't part of the average physician's everyday routine today, but in the future, it will be.

[Health]... to yours, mine and ours

The first wealth is health. –  Ralph Waldo Emerson A Google search didn't reveal any results for the query: 'meats that prevent disease'. But a search for 'foods that prevent disease' got millions of hits....nearly 100% of the results were about plants. For example:  17 Superfoods That Fight Disease - Health Magazine  and NutritionFacts,org  Meatless meals are built around beans, lentils, vegetables and whole grains. These plant-based proteins tend to be less expensive and offer many more health benefits. “One should eat to live, not live to eat.”  – Moliere

[Health] ...human heal thy self

Each person carries a  doctor inside their own mind.

[Good Heath] yours, mine and ours!

''Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.'' —Hippocrates Good health: Eat a 100% whole foods, plant-based diet. Go for walks in the fresh air, live life in moderation, cultivate your natural curiosity, maintain a good sense of humor, love your fellow travelers, and do it all with a positive mental attitude!

[Good Health] Believe it...

The power that formed the body heals the body. Whether or not you believe in a divine source, there's no denying that something exists in a living thing that doesn't exist in something no longer living. From a dead body to a dead branch on the ground, the life force just isn’t there any longer. That force permeates and connects us all; plant, animal and human. That is equality. Holding onto the past we delay all healing, mental and physical. The sooner we heal the abuse(through forgiveness), the sooner we free ourselves from the people who harmed us. By hating them, we only hold onto the hurt. We cannot heal unless we unchain ourselves from the hate. 

Can We Faith Heal Ourselves?

by Michael Corthell This article is about healing, but not in the traditional Western sense. It is not a substitute for licensed medical advice. This article is about having belief and faith—knowing that healing is a partnership between God and the individual. ''Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.'' '' Rise and go; your faith has made you well.'' —Jesus (God incarnate) Jesus also says, 'Your faith has made you well', to the ten lepers and a blind beggar. Other times Jesus links faith and healing without using the exact words, 'Your faith has made you well,'' such as in Matthew 8:13 and 15:28 .   '' Then Jesus said to the centurion, '' Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.'' And his servant was healed at that moment.'' and, also: Then Jesus said to her, '' Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.'

[Exercise] Loosen up

“All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols The path you decide to walk today will determine where you are tomorrow. “An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.” ― Henry David Thoreau

Exercising For Better Mental Health

by Michael Corthell When you realize that you're suffering from anxiety and depression, you may seek out medical treatment. You then will probably go to your primary care doctor to talk about meds. You may look for a therapist. You may even try to take a more holistic approach and use natural remedies. Many people will try all of these things. ''To enjoy the glow of good health, you must exercise.'' —Gene Tunney What most people either don't know or don't want to know is that there is a way of managing anxiety and depression that is considered as powerful as many medicines. It's a method that has few side effects and could even improve your over-all health. Medical studies have shown that physical and mental inactivity can be a cause of depression/anxiety/worry and that the opposite can help at least manage the symptoms and in some cases cure the illness. As with most illnesses the current thought is to always check

[Farmacy] Prevent defense...

“We are healthy only to the extent that our ideas are humane.” ― Kurt Vonnegut, Breakfast of Champions From The Original Human Body Owner's Manual : ''Respect your investment by eating healthy foods only.'' “Instead of complaining about problems in your stomach, mind what goes into your stomach to cause the problems in your stomach.” ― Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

[Healing] I'm a healer, you're a healer

  “What happens when people open their hearts?" "They get better.” ― Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood Each and every creature has a unique part to play in the healing of the world. “Forgetting was not the same as healing.” ― Rivers Solomon

[Human] When the Mind is Kind...

“Be careful about reading health books. Some fine day you'll die of a misprint.” ― Markus Herz A sign of good overall health is that a person doesn't get unraveled by fear. They take fear as a message that it's time to stop struggling and look directly at what's threatening them....and do something about it. “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” ― Hippocrates

A HAPPY, Well Oiled Machine

“Self-care has become a new priority – the revelation that it’s  perfectly permissible to listen to your body and do what it needs.” — Frances Ryan Eating healthy doesn't mean starving yourself. Eating healthy means eating plant-based foods in the right amount. “Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”  —Albert Einstein

Creating the Future

  If you are positive, positive things will find you.  I submit to you again that all futures are created by thoughts. And that the foundation of all happiness is faith. A happy life is also a healthy life. None of us will ever be perfectly healthy, but we can seek our personal  optimal level of health.  If we can accept the premise that our minds can create illness, it would naturally follow that we can also create wellness. And therein lies a most powerful truth about healing.  Have faith, be positive about your future and create it.
