Food For Thought

When you embark upon your healing journey, your life changes forever. Our Health Programs are aimed at activating your immune system, getting rid of nutritional deficiencies, and cleaning the body systems.

Your body relies on you to give it the necessary nutrition and care. It is a committed undertaking and lifelong responsibility.


Healing begins in your spirit – between your ears and in your heart. Deal with your emotions of fear, anger, panic, depression and come out with optimism, hope and a fighting spirit.

Establish not only what you are eating, but specifically also what is eating you. Find the cause of your dis-ease. Be honest with yourself and keep looking for the answers.

Remember: Every cell in your body is eavesdropping on your thoughts. Make those thoughts good ones more often than the fearful thoughts.

To beat dis-ease, bring your body beyond surviving into thriving again.

Being well-nourished feeds your defences and your immune system. Eat all the colourful veggies, deep colours are better than pale colours. Eating raw as often as possible is best.

Educate yourself, question everything about why you take which medications and what the side-effects on your body are; research what you eat & drink, the onus rests on you, your body and health stay your responsibility.


Sugar, dairy products and beef feed disease and depletes the immune system. Avoid it.

Did you know that 40% of deaths of patients with dis-ease are due to malnutrition (a wasting condition known as cachexia)?

So, don’t be digging your grave with your teeth or ignorance.

Weekly organic Coffee enemas, parsley and green teas are highly effective ways to help detoxify your body.

Dis-ease cells are a constant process in the human body. The immune system consisting of 20 trillion cells have to keep them in check, so keep supporting your immune and realise that nutrition regulates your immune system. Include fresh ginger and chillies (the latter in moderation) in your diet.

Remember : Stress & depression can cripple the immune function.

The mind plays a very powerful role in turning the immune system on & off. Positive emotions generate endorphins which boost the immune function. Laughter is a powerful healer.

Adopt a lifestyle on a daily basis that supports this process toward a healthy body.

Change the underlying causes of your dis-ease

Underlying causes include:

  1. Psycho-spiritual
  2. Toxic burden – e.g. root canal, mercury fillings, food preservatives, chlorine & fluoride in water
  3. Malnutrition
  4. Lifestyle
  5. Environmental factors
  6. Chronic infections or fungus (yeast, viral, etc)
  7. Spinal alignment
  8. Energy alignment

Change your internal environment and use restrained medical intervention.

Be with people who have faith, hope, a sense of humour and who encourage you “Crisis” is written in the Eastern languages with signs that mean both: danger and opportunity

Dis-ease is a “danger” to your life. It is also an “opportunity” to change your life into a master piece

Remember: Happiness brings endorphins that supercharge your immune system.

Good thoughts and good nutrition stay key to your healing.

There is wisdom in all life that knows how to fix disease, just give your body proper physical and metaphysical resources to do its job.

Feed your mind with good thoughts, beauty, laughter, music, play.

Feed your heart with love, forgiveness, confidence in your abilities and a sense of purpose.

Feed your body with good nutrition.

When your dis-ease is in remission, continue the lifestyle changes that got you there, because going back to previous eating and/or lifestyle habits will have the dis-ease return.

Always keep balance and moderation.

Keep it simple & colourful, stay creative and live each day.
