The Paleo Diet is a low carb eating program that will have you enjoying wholesome, natural foods from the food groups our hunter-gatherer ancestors would have thrived on. These foods include fresh meats (preferably grass-produced or free-range), fish, seafood, fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and oils (olive, coconut, avocado, macadamia, walnut and flaxseed).
The Paleo Diet is believed to be the healthiest way we can eat as the only nutritional approach that works with our genetics.
Why the Paleo Diet?
Modern life today means that many people have become busier and busier. It is quick and easy and saves time to choose packaged, pre-prepared and fast food. But do we consider what is contained in these foods; the additives, colours, refined foods, trans fats and sugars? We now also eat more whole grains, legumes and dairy.
Modern life has also seen a rise in serious disease. We see more and more people succumb to cancer, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, migraines, asthma, sleep disorders and much more. We have also seen a rise in obesity which also contributes to health issues.
For optimum results it is best to eliminate any processed foods and minimise snacking to once per day (best time to snack is between lunch and dinner) and eat nothing after dinner for a two-week period. This will break your normal day-to-day eating habits and allow a fresh start with a fresh perspective.
Sample meals from Dr. Cordain’s latest book, The Paleo Answer:
Breakfast: Free range eggs scrambled in olive oil, chopped parsley. Grapefruit, or any fresh fruit in season, herbal tea.
Snack: Sliced lean beef, fresh apricots or seasonal fruit.
Lunch: Caesar salad with chicken (olive oil and lemon dressing), herbal tea.
Snack: Apple slices, raw walnuts.
Dinner: Tomato and avocado slices; grilled skinless turkey breast; steamed broccoli, carrots, and artichoke; bowl of fresh blueberries, raisins, and almonds; one glass mineral water.

“Use little or no toothpaste!”
Do you have an issue of plaque bacteria build up on you teeth after eating? When we eat sugary foods the plaque bacteria produce acid which attacks the teeth, causing tooth decay. Saliva helps wash away and neutralise this acid, but it is harder for saliva to work the more plaque has built up and the more sugary foods we eat. The main purpose of toothpaste is to clean the teeth of plaque using mild abrasive detergents as well as being an important source of fluoride which has proven to protect teeth against attack from bacteria.
The Ionic Toothbrush could be your answer to little or no toothpaste, yet the result is sweet smelling breath and sparkling teeth! Particularly popular with those travelling interstate and overseas, as well as teenagers using braces for orthodontic work. A high tech toothbrush from Japan could support you to have healthier teeth and gums, using little or no toothpaste, because it needs only saliva and light to clean the teeth.
How the Soladey Toothbrush Works
A light-activated titanium dioxide rod inside the handle of the Soladey toothbrush, when exposed to any light source (a plain light bulb, a fluorescent bathroom light, or sunlight) generates negatively charged electrons called ions. These electrons are then released into the saliva, bathing the mouth in negatively charged slurry.
Positively charged hydrogen ions present in plaque’s acid are attracted by these electrons, neutralising the acid and the plaque breaks down, pulling positive hydrogen ions from the dental plaque in your teeth. As well as being effective at destroying the harmful bacteria found in the mouth related to tooth decay, called Streptococcus mutans. The acid is then neutralised and plaque is disintegrated, the natural and scientific approach to a cleaner and healthier mouth!
The bacterial population in the mouth has a direct impact on the body’s state of health, in a similar way to the intestinal flora. So by maintaining clean teeth will contribute to a healthier lifestyle.

About Essential Oils
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, and flowers of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant, eliciting profound emotional responses. Yet the use of essential oils goes well beyond their fragrant appeal. Used throughout history for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits, essential oils can be used as natural alternatives in holistic self-care practices. Their unique chemistry allows them to be used aromatically and applied topically to the skin, while other essential oils can be used as dietary aids to promote vitality and well-being.

Why Use a Coffee Enema?
Coffee enemas are known to be extremely beneficial for cleansing the body of harmful waste matter, particularly when used in conjunction with a cleansing program that is high in nutritional support. The coffee enema also assists in elimination by bowel cleansing.
Coffee Enemas are also popular for helping to relieve the symptoms of serious illness. Max Gerson, MD, whopioneered the Gerson Therapy, documented excellent results for cancer and other diseases in “Healing the Gerson Way” and other writings. His Gerson Therapy combines coffee enemas with a special diet, juices and supplements. The enemas are an integral part of the process.
If you suffer from constipation an enema can be useful, although it should never replace a bowel movement.
Enema vs Colonic Irrigation?
A coffee enema is aimed at cleansing and improving the liver function, whereas colonic irrigation cleanses the bowel and colon.
How Do They Work?
Dr.Gerson explains that the power of the enema is in its ability to cleanse via the liver/bile. Enemas dilate the bile ducts allowing the liver to release accumulations of waste matter. Harmful waste from faecal matter and free radicals diffuse into the blood and cells of the body. If left, they accumulate and this may lead to disease and premature aging.
The caffeine from the coffee is absorbed into the haemorrhoidal vein, then taken up to the liver by the portal vein which draws fluid out and up into the liver every 4 minutes. If the liver is unable to dump the toxins in the bile, the toxins will accumulate and the body reuses this bile full of harmful waste.
The caffeine causes dilation of blood vessels and bile ducts, while the enzymes in coffee stimulate the liver to produce new bile. The old harmful bile is dumped into the large intestine where it is safely evacuated from the body.
When all the coffee has been absorbed into the bowel and the catheter removed, the coffee should be held for 12-15 minutes before evacuating. This allows your blood time to travel through your liver up to 5 times allowing your liver to continually dump the harmful waste.
Your liver and kidneys are no longer overwhelmed by harmful waste and the liver is then free to process more incoming harmful matter material that has accumulated in the organs, tissues and bloodstream.
Benefits of Coffee Enemas:
Toxin Elimination – The major benefit of the coffee enema, is to enhance elimination of waste matter through the liver.
Cleansing – Coffee also acts as an astringent in the large intestine, helping clean the colon walls. A common contributor to ill health is the production and absorption of harmful waste within the small and large intestines. If food is not digested properly, sugars ferment and protein putrefies or rots. Both processes generate harmful chemicals which are then absorbed into the liver.
Stimulates Bile Flow – The coffee enema enhances digestion by increasing bile flow and removes toxins in the large intestine so they will not be absorbed. Most people with health complaints suffer from impaired digestion and production of harmful substances in the intestines.
Stimulates Liver – Coffee enemas are particularly helpful for slow oxidizers. Their liver activity is more sluggish and digestion is usually impaired. Fast oxidizers may have more difficulty retaining the enema.
Further benefits of Enemas are:
- May assist with increased elimination from the bowel
- May help to relieve headaches
- May help to increase alertness
- May help to increase energy

Why we need to activate and stimulate the lymphatic system.
A healthy lymph system is one of the most important systems in the body in creating wellness. It supports taking nutrition to the cells and taking toxins and waste products away.
It is vital for overall health that we support our lymphatic system by stimulating it with movement on a daily basis.
Did you know that there is up to four times more fluid in the lymphatic system than there is blood in the body? The heart pumps the blood, but what pumps the lymphatic fluid? The answer is movement! Lymphasizing is a highly recommended movement that opens and shuts all the lymph valves, pumping the lymphatic fluid around the body.
An unhealthy lymph system can lead to a wide range of health issues including a suppressed immune system, the body is in Dis………Ease!
What is the Lymphatic System?
The lymphatic system is very complex and it is made up by lymphoid organs, lymph nodes, lymph ducts, lymph capillaries, and lymph vessels that make and transport lymph fluid from tissues to the circulatory system. It plays a major part in supporting a healthy immune system.
The Lymphatic System is your body’s internal filtration system for all your cellular waste. It helps your body eliminate toxins, cancer cells, waste, trapped proteins, bacteria, viruses, and other waste that cells cast off. By Lymphasizing regularly you are not only energizing the cell, therefore helping the cell structure, but you are also assisting the cells to release these acidic and toxic waste products. Without it, your cells, tissues and organs would become overloaded with toxins.
The lymphatic system also works with the circulatory system to deliver nutrients, oxygen, and hormones from the blood to the cells that make up the tissues of the body.
Before you begin Lymphasizing, we highly recommended that you drink up to 2 glasses of warm water. This creates movement of fluid around the body to get the lymphatic system moving.
The goal of Lymphasizing is to open and shut the lymph valves. This is done by placing your bare feet on the center of the matt approximately 10cm apart, facing north, and then with both feet not leaving the matt, you create a bounce. Note: It is important that you do not take your feet off the matt whilst Lymphasizing. As you bounce, begin by breathing in approximately 20 short breaths through your nose to fill your lungs as much as possible with air, then with about 20+ quick short breaths out through your mouth, to empty the lungs as much as possible, continuing this process as you bounce. This creates a vortex of energy, and the static electricity is reduced to safer levels; also the induced vibrational energy will assist with your cellular self-transformation. It is best to begin with 5 – 10 minutes first thing in the morning, and then you can lengthen the time as needed. Some may prefer to Lymphasize before going to bed.
Lymphasizing will increase and balance the body cell’s level of oxygen. Oxygen actually is the vital life force needed in the activation and synergy involved within the cell’s Sodium Potassium pumps. The approach removes most or nearly all of the innate stresses involved (except “doing it”) without any risk of contra-reactions including tiring and hyperventilation. When the cell’s blood oxygen levels are optimal, cellular self-healing and rejuvenation can be accelerated much faster and safer.
The breathing also raises the lung capacity, so that with each clearing level, your normal breathing range will be steadily increased. The ability of the lungs to uptake oxygen, while the rest steps result in increased removal of the cells waste gasses. Now the whole respiratory system, plus the other 13 body systems can also be enhanced, by working at a cellular level.
The obvious results of balanced Lymphasizer breathing can be felt for many hours after this total approach designed to restore the body’s life force. Systematically the depth of each breath in will be an increase of lung capacity; this also allows your breathing rate to be slowed for improved oxygen uptake.
While Lymphasizing breathing, the pulsing action will help to clear sinuses, ear, nose and throat passageways, resulting in easier breathing and a clearer head. Especially for people who have a history of breathing ailments such as asthma, bronchitis, emphysemas etc.
The overall goal is to get the full range of the diaphragm, our body’s most important muscle restored. This will result in the full expansion and contraction of the upper, middle and lower lungs within the rib cage.
This basic key will release and activate the Spine’s relative vertebrae, which in turn activates the Cerebral Spinal Fluid utilised by the Sacral-Cranial pump. The Sacrum is the body’s most important bone, as its purpose is the bringing of nutrients to the Craniums and removing toxins and cellular wastes from the Central Nervous System.
The biggest asset is to know the laws, which allows you to get the maximum range of movements from ALL of the foregoing challenges, which will cost you and yours nothing once taught.

Tags: Detoxification, Oil Pulling, Oil Swishing, Oral Health
Oil Swishing or Oil Pulling is an age old method of oral cleansing originating from Ayurvedic medicine. It is one of the most powerful and effective methods of detoxification and healing in natural medicine.
The health of our mouth is an indication of the health of our bodies. Infection and bacteria in the mouth may result in other health problems. Oil Swishing is a simple process in which the oil is swished backwards and forwards in the mouth and this has a stimulating effect on the body’s eliminatory system.
Oil Swishing may assist the healing process for tooth and gum disease, blood disorders, lung and liver disorders, heart and kidney disorders, migraines and headaches, skin ailments, gastric and intestinal problems, nervous conditions, poor memory and hormonal disorders just to name a few.
The Oil Swishing process of pushing the oil forwards and backwards through the teeth mixes the oil with saliva and activates the released enzymes, and the enzymes draw toxins out of the blood. This is why it is extremely important that the oil is not swallowed and you spit it out when finished. This ensures that the released toxins are not reabsorbed into the body. Many people report that the oil takes on a milky white or yellowish color. This is due to the fact that it becomes saturated with toxins and bacteria.
Steps to Oil Swishing/Oil Pulling
- Begin on an empty stomach first thing in the morning prior to eating. A glass of water, at between room temperature and warm, may assist with producing saliva.
- Put 2-3 teaspoons of organic sunflower into your mouth. Ensure the amount you use is comfortable you need to leave room for the production of saliva.
- Keep your lips closed, push and pull the oil back and forth through the teeth and gums ensuring every area in the mouth is covered.
- Do not gargle or swallow the oil. Your mouth will be full of bacteria and toxins which you do not want to reabsorb back into the body.
- Relax and swish the oil in your mouth trying to produce as much saliva as possible. 15-20 minutes is recommended, but you may wish to build up to this time. You may find that the solution turns a milky white or yellow.
- When finished, discard the oil in the bin. It is not recommended to dispose of it down the drain.
- Rinse your mouth out and you may wish to rinse with baking soda or clean with a Soladey toothbrush, plus some organic toothpaste.
- This procedure can be carried out 1- 2 times a day.
