I want to be and have more Peace in my own life, are you interested? During our time of world reset and transformation of the old structures and establishments that no longer work this is a great time to consider how you can be the Peace you want in your life.

21 Day Bonus 1

21 DAY CLEAN, PURGE, BALANCE 21 day clean, purge, balance 17 April 2020 Day 22 (Bonus 1) – Wellness, longevity and remission. Welcome to Day 22 (Bonus 1) – Are you owning and implementing the steps for longevity and well-being? As a bonus we will look at longevity and healing. In researching the studies on centenarian cultures around the world and longevity research I have isolated several key factors that we have introduced you to over the last 21 days. The reason I have chosen the long term centenarian studies and longevity research is that they have studied groups that have demonstrated the results of diet on health, productivity, and wellness for over 100 years of application. Long term results are absent with the latest fad diets like paleo, keto, and others that are based on a theory that is unique and different but may or may not be valid for long term results. I have also included Kelly Turners results in studying individuals who have successfully turned around chronic diseases. “Genetic or dietary interventions can not only delay diseases but actually eliminate a major portion of chronic diseases in mice, monkeys, and even humans to extend longevity.” Dr. Valter Longo, noted longevity researcher. Longo indicates that the mostly plant based diet he recommends does not only lead to optimal weight and health but also provides strong protection against the major ailments of old age, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. The basics of longevity and healing from various researchers is: The nine common steps that people who had radical remissions of chronic illness did are (note only two of them are physical changes, the rest are mental, emotional and spiritual): 1. Radically changing their diet. * 2. Taking control of (for) your health. 3. Following your intuition 4. Using Herbs and Supplements. * 5. Releasing suppressed emotions. 6. Increasing positive emotions. 7. Embracing social support. 8. Deepening your spiritual connection. 9. Having a strong reason for living. Nine lessons on the lifestyle of people living in blue zones: • Moderate, regular physical activity. • Life purpose. • Stress reduction. • Moderate caloric intake. • Plant-based diet. • Moderate alcohol intake, especially wine (low alcohol content). • Engagement in spirituality or religion. • Engagement in family life. The summary of the Longo “Longevity Diet” is as follows: • Eat mostly plant-based foods, with occasional low-mercury fish or other seafood (2-3 times a week) and lots of nuts and olive oil • Generally eat modest amounts of protein, whether it’s plant-based or animal-based • Very limited or no dairy; goat’s milk and cheese are okay • Minimize saturated fats and sugar • Eat foods from your ancestral homelands as long as they are otherwise healthy • Eat 2-3 meals a day, ideally two solid meals and one snack, in a 10-12 hour window, and don’t eat 3-4 hours before bedtime • Take multivitamins every three days • A few times a year, if you are under age 65-70 and otherwise healthy, do a five-day water fast or a “fasting-mimicking diet,” which includes food but mimics the benefits of actual fasting. A few additions: • Belief is important more than 1/3 of all medical cures are due to placebo effect. • Perception is a key for epigenetic actions that re-write genes and give you healing ability. • Self-care and stress reduction through meditation are very important and go beyond to spirituality. • Supplements should be used to supplement imbalance, but not continued beyond their use, herbs and medicines were not meant for continuous usage. Next time we will look at where we stand in relationship to this with a short questionnaire I have developed. Take Away (Bonus 1): Consider the daily actions of centenarians who enjoy well-being, joy and happiness.
