Let There Be Light!

Let There Be Light!

Electromagnetic radiation ranges from the cosmic rays of outer space to the electrical waves present in each living plant, animal, and human cell. Visible light is one small part of this electromagnetic spectrum. All biological life is composed of and dependent on light. If you doubt this truth, place most any plant, animal, or human in a darkened environment for a prolonged period of time; you will soon notice that the life energy, the vitality, of each organism is gradually diminished often even to the point of death.

The light energy from the sun of our solar system is chemically and physically integrated into the cellular structure and function of living cells. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, Nobel laureate for Physiology or Medicine (1937)*, said, “A living cell requires energy not only for all its functions, but also for the maintenance of its structure. The source of this energy is the sun’s radiation.”  That energy is absorbed either directly through our skin’s exposure to sunlight, or indirectly thought eating organisms which have absorbed the sun’s energy for proper physiology, such as oxygenation and the conversion of starches to sugars.

Various studies have conclusively shown that humans’ exposure to artificial light, which lacks critical wavelengths that are present in natural daylight, leads to decreases in attention, learning ability, performance, productivity, fertility and increases in (fat) weight gain, errors, and mood swings such as sadness, depression, irritability, stress, and fatigue. Other studies have also shown that exposure to natural daylight results in reduced (fat) weight, resting heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure and more, with increased energy, strength, stress tolerance, blood oxygenation, learning ability, test scores, and even customer sales in retail locations!

Come to the Wellness Planning Institute at 950 Cass Street in Monterey to experience the positive health benefits of exposure to natural daylight while being indoors, and learn how to safely, easily, and affordably have this same experience in your own home, school, and office.

* The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1937 was awarded to Albert Szent-Györgyi for his discoveries in connection with the biological combustion processes, with special reference to vitamin C and the catalysis of fumaric acid.

How Does Sugar Affect Our Immune System?

How Does Sugar Affect Our Immune System?

In a world where we can get all kinds of information instantaneously, it is often confusing and overwhelming to discern the truth about what really matters. This is no less true regarding what makes for truly healthful, safe food and nutrition. Pollution is everywhere in our environment. Smog, chemical runoff, outdoor allergens, and more threaten your and your family’s health. When it comes to toxic contaminants, the food you are eating may be among the worst offenders. Therefore, it is quite important to give our bodies, our 75+ trillion cells, all the nutrients they require daily and in a form that is easily usable, i.e., bioavailable. One of the difficulties in obtaining and eating delicious, safe, high quality food is trying to avoid and eliminate excess refined sugars.

What is the big deal about consuming too much refined sugar? Four grams of sucrose, table sugar, equals one teaspoon.
6  teaspoons of sugar will decrease the immune function by 25%
10 teaspoons of sugar will decrease the immune system by 50%
24 teaspoons of sugar will decrease the immune system by 92%

The amount of sucrose and/or high fructose corn syrup in an average candy bar and a soft drink is enough to suppress the immune system for up to 6 hours! The average U.S. American child consumes about 340 grams, or ¾ pound of sugar daily. Hmmmm. What affect might that have upon a child who is exposed daily to all kinds of bacteria and viruses in the classroom and in the home? Perhaps this gives us something to think about.

While it may seem overwhelming, and even impossible, to limit and eliminate excess refined sugar  in our daily diets, practitioners at our Wellness Planning Institute have found easy, affordable, and FUN ways to provide nutrition that meets our body’s critical daily needs. Come by at 950 Cass Street, Suite A, Monterey, California 93940 and find out which ways can work for you and your loved ones.

Understanding pH And The Water We Drink

Understanding pH And The Water We Drink

Perhaps you have encountered the term “pH” when you have researched information regarding drinking water. The acronym “pH” means “potential of hydrogen”.  It refers to the relative number of free, or available, hydrogen ions within a liquid.  There is a pH scale from 1 to 14 with 7.5 being the midpoint. Usually living animal cells, especially human cells, thrive at a pH between 7.45 and 7.35.  Consequently, pH greater than 7.45 is considered alkaline; less than 7.35 is considered acidic. The key concept regarding the relative alkalinity and acidity is that our cells begin to destabilize, and eventually die beyond either limit. So much of what we tend to eat and drink, especially, our drinking water here in the United States, is acidic.  Medical lab tests often show acidic conditions in individuals with various common health conditions involving the metabolism, respiratory system, cardiovascular system, and the connective and skeletal systems. Many individuals have experienced improved health through regulating the pH of their cells.

Just as important as the pH is the fact that we may not be drinking enough water daily. Chronic dehydration is linked to many diseases, including Alzheimer’s dementia. The human body is 70 to 90 percent water depending upon the organ. It is recommended that each person drink daily at least one-half of their body weight (in pounds) as the number of ounces of water. For example, a person who weighs 208 pounds should drink at least 104 ounces, which equals 13 (8 oz.) cups or 6 ½ pints per day.

For drinking and bathing water to be healthful, it needs to:

  • be free from contaminants and pollutants (including chlorine)
  • be alkaline (above pH 7.0 and below pH 9.0 for most individuals)
  • have the right combination of minerals (calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, etc.)
  • contain minerals that are easily recognized and utilized by the cells of humans and animals (i.e., be bioavailable).
  • have the chains of water molecules broken up for easy absorption and hydration.  (The molecular clusters of water carry more oxygen when they are hexagonal in shape. This is achieved through proper magnetization.)
  • and to be oxygenated.

How Does Your Nutrition Compare With Your Body’s Daily Critical Needs?

In a world where we can get all kinds of information instantaneously, it is often confusing and overwhelming to discern the truth about what really matters. This is no less true regarding what makes for truly healthful, safe food and nutrition. Pollution is everywhere in our environment. SMOG, chemical runoff, outdoor allergens, and more threaten your and your family’s health. When it comes to toxic contaminants, the food you are eating may be among the worst offenders.

Regardless of whether you are a vegetarian, vegan, or meat-eating bon vivant, the important thing to remember about what you eat is to provide for the daily critical needs of your body’s cells. What are these critical needs? There are at least 16 points for effectively addressing these needs.  Whatever you eat, it is highly recommended that your food:

  • reduces harmful microorganisms
  • helps dissolve intestinal mucoidal plaque to increase the absorption of good nutrients.
  • helps heal leaky gut to reduce and eliminate the absorption of large harmful molecules
  • promotes the breakdown and dissolution of toxic “prisons” throughout the body. Harmful substances in a healthy body are sealed off in “prisons” in fat, in the bone, and in cysts.   Releasing toxic “prisons” releases these poisons to be excreted from the body.
  • helps reduce harmful blood lipids (low density cholesterol and the triglycerides)
  • improves blood and lymph circulation
  • neutralizes free radicals
  • strengthens the liver
  • furnishes tremendous food nutrition
  • improves sleep
  • corrects blood and cellular pH
  • helps establish a new, healthier lifestyle
  • effects appropriate weight loss and weight management
  • enhances the immune system
  • decreases and eliminates thyroid problems, and
  • last, but not least, relieves and eliminates sugar cravings and mood swings.

How Do Magnetic Health Devices Work?

The use of magnets for promoting good health has been commonplace for over 4000 years. For example, during the reign of Emperor Huang Ti (2550 B.C.), magnetic lode stones were used to treat yin and yang imbalances. These are the foundations of modern energy medicine. Hindu text from around1500 B.C. describes the treatment of diseases with magnetic instruments. In the 1500s, William Gilbert, the Court Physician to the Queen of England, treated his patients with magnets. Research and new treatments with evermore sophisticated magnets have continued until today all over the world.

Some common uses for these magnetic devices include the reduction of various physical discomforts, such as intractable pain, the reduction of healing time of bone fractures, and the decrease of recovery times of injuries in both large and small animals.

Properly designed magnets have been found to:

  • increase blood flow
  • balance one’s blood and cellular pH
  • stimulate enzymatic activity
  • speed up the migration of serum calcium to help heal nerve tissue and bones
  • rebuild dead nerves
  • help break down scar tissue
  • release toxins for excretion
  • enlarge blood vessel diameter and reduce inflammation
  • reduce pain by modulating pain receptors, and
  • keep cells healthy
