Homeopathy, Diet and Health Taking a holistic viewpoint Slide 2 Hahnemann, Organon Aphorism 36 - 38 Only one disease can exist in the body at a time. Slide 3 Herings Law of Cures Symptoms should disappear in the following order - from within outwards, from above downwards, from more important organs to less important organs, and in the reverse order in which they appeared. Slide 4 The epidemics today Heart disease Hypertension Diabetes Cancer Obesity Constipation Slide 5 72 year old man with Diabetes - 25 years (allopathy) Heart disease and hypertension - 7 years (allopathy) Cancer of the bladder - few months (no treatment) What should go first? Slide 6 Multiple diseases This will not work according to Herings law which is for symptoms of a natural disease. The artificial suppressions have to be removed first. In order to stop the medications for diabetes and blood pressure we need to first remove the cause for these two. Slide 7 Awareness Homeopathy can treat through awareness but its not so helpful in situations where we lack collective awareness as a species. Slide 8 Lifestyle changes - rapid, gentle, permanent recovery. 74 year old patient of diabetes since 30 years - blood sugar 222. Within 2 weeks 88. 22 year old patient with insulin dependant diabetes - insulin injections 3 times a day - stopped insulin in 3 days. 56 year old diabetic - diabetes controlled in 1 month. 76 year old patient, 3 years heart disease, 3 weeks in hospital - off medication in 2 months. Slide 9 3 year old with chronic constipation stool needing mechanical removal - normal stools within days. Obesity - weight loss which does not revert after sometime. 11 year old with high blood pressure - reversed in 1month. 25 year old with asthma - no more attacks. Slide 10 Unnatural diet as a maintaining cause What would be the natural food for the human being? Slide 11 Humans are predominantly Herbivorous Reasons Primate ancestry Teeth Movement of jaws Saliva Long intestines Absence of claws Method of drinking Night vision absent Slide 12 Carnivores digestive system Slide 13 Recent research: humans are herbivores and not omnivores http://www.earthsave.bc.ca/material s/articles/health/comparative.html Slide 14 Our Herbivorous Habits Living in groups Desire for sweets Natural instincts Frequency of eating Hart & Robert W. Sussman, Ph.D., professor anthropology Slide 15 Milk and Milk Products Milk: a health food - but only for the calf. Slide 16 Foods natural to our anatomy Slide 17 No meat - where will I get my protein? Ever heard of someone with protein deficiency? (Where do cows get their protein?) Slide 18 Protein deficiency linked to severe malnutrition. Primary disease linked to inadequate protein consumption - Kwashiorkor Slide 19 Primary diseases linked to excess protein consumption - osteoporosis and kidney disease. Slide 20 Percentage of protein in different animals milks Man 1.25 - 2.7 Monkey 2.3 Guinea Pig 8.55 Rat 8.7 Dog 10.11 Cat 11.1 Cow 3.3 - 4 Goats 4.1 Slide 21 If I dont drink milk where do I get my calcium?

Water Cress 151 mg Calcium content of foods (per 100-gram portion) Slide 23 The Relation of Protein to Calcium The Nurse's Health Study recently found women who consumed 95 grams of protein a day compared with those who consumed less than 68 grams a day had a 22% greater risk of forearm fractures. Slide 24 Calcium imbalances in the zone diet Principal Investigator Calcium intake (mg) Protein Intake (g) Calcium Balance (mg) C.A.50095- 58 R.W.80095+1 H.L.50095- 60 H.L.80095 0 C.A.500142-120 M.H.500150-116 R.W.800142- 85 Slide 25 Dr Benjamin Spock warned against milk "Cow's milk in the past has always been oversold as the perfect food, but we are now seeing that it isn't the perfect food at all and the government really shouldn't be behind any efforts to promote it as such." "Cow's milk has become a point of controversy among doctors and nutritionists. There was a time when it was considered very desirable, but research has forced us to rethink this recommendation...dairy products contribute to a surprising number of health problems..." Benjamin Spock, M.D., "Child Care," 7th Edition Slide 26 What else is bad about Milk? Milk is a cocktail of the following ingredients - Hormones Pus - average 7 drops / glass Concentration of pesticides Antibiotics Bacteria Slide 27 We consume more milk than we think. Milk and its products are in many readymade foods 1 oz of cheese is made from 16 oz of milk! Slide 28 Vegan diet and Stamina Dr. Per-Olaf Astrand conducted an informal study of diet and endurance using nine highly trained athletes, changing their diet every three days. At the end of every diet change, each athlete would pedal a bicycle until exhaustion. Slide 29 Those with a high protein and high fat meat (carnivore) diet averaged 57 minutes. a mixed (omnivore) diet, lower in meat, fat and protein averaged 1 hour and 54 minutes: twice the endurance of the meat and fat eaters. A high carbohydrate diet lasted 2 hours and 47 minutes, triple the endurance of the high-protein group.

Slide 31 Our needs pH alkaline Fibre Nutrients Health = Health = Nutrition Calories (Eat to Live, Joel Fuhrman, MD) What about nutritional supplements? Slide 32 Unnatural Plant based foods Slide 33 Refined foods Oil Other fats like butter, lard, margarine, butter substitutes Sugar White flour (our brown breads) White rice Processed foods, soft drinks All of these give us calories without nutritional value. Because of the lack of fibre, more is eaten leading to obesity. Slide 34 Effects of refined foods Diabetes, heart disease, elevated triglycerides, elevated cholesterol, constipation and obesity... Whole foods contain complex carbohydrates. Refined foods contain simpler carbohydrates. Slide 35 Percentage of nutrients lost when whole wheat flour is refined into white flour Food Revolution - John Robbins Protein 25% Fibre 95% Calcium 56% Iron 84% Phosphorus 69% Potassium 74% Zinc 76% Copper 62% Manganese 82% Selenium 52% Thiamin (vit B1) 73% Riboflavin (vit B2) 81% Niacin (Vit B3) 80% Pantothenic Acid (vit B5) 56% Vitamin B6 87% Folate 59% Vitamin E 95% Slide 36 Effects of sugars No longer resembles a food, is an artificial substance and a drug. The chemicals used in processing (phosphoric acid, calcium phosphate and others) are potent and health-debilitating. Has a tremendous amount of carbonic acid which disturbs the nutritional balance. Robs the body nutrients, especially the minerals chromium, zinc and calcium, and vitamins C and B-complex. Slide 37 Sugar Destroys digestion enzymes in the mouth, stomach, the small intestines and the pancreas. Is released into the blood too quickly which is toxifying and damages the body cells. Slide 38 Sugar in fast foods and ready made foods 70 percent of the sugar we consume is hidden in foods. 12-ounce soda contains 10 teaspoons of sugar. Even pizza has a considerable amount of sugar in it, and so does commercial tomato ketchup. Slide 39 Effects of caffeine (found in coffee, tea, colas) Increases stomach acid secretion and promotes ulcers. Produces anxiety, irritability, depression mood changes. Stimulant action - Raising the blood pressure, damaging blood vessels and causing heart attacks. Birth defects. Infant deaths. Slide 40 Effects of colas Slide 41 Fried Foods Carbohydrates subjected to high temperatures become carcinogenic. Oil heated over or for a long period of time is carcinogenic. What oils should we use? Oil Alternatives Alternative to frying Slide 42 Essential Fatty Acids Only plants can create two types of polyunsaturated fats called essential fatty acids (EFA) known as omega-3 and omega-6 fats (w-3 and w-6 fats). Slide 43 Plants rich in EFA Linoliec acids - safflower, sunflower, hemp seed, soyabeans, walnut, pumpkin, sesame, flax Alpha Linolenic - flax, hemp, canola (rapeseed), soybeans, walnut, green leafy vegetables, purslane, perilla Gamma Linolenic - borage, black currant seed, primrose Slide 44 Too much of a good thing These EFAs protect against atherosclerosis and heart attacks, as well as relieve rheumatoid arthritis, diabetic neuropathy. Larger intake of these also leads to heart attacks. Slide 45 Less refined foods are less harmful but not as good as whole foods Examples : fruit juices, molasses, rice syrup etc. Slide 46 Raw foods are live foods Slide 47 Dead foods Slide 48 Rules to Follow in Diet Eat foods that are anatomically suitable. Eat whole rather than refined or processed in any way. Eat fresh foods, unprocessed. Eat foods grown in the vicinity and that are seasonal. Choose organic over artificially grown ones. Food combining is important. Avoid junk food and artificial food. Slide 49 Health Considerations of Organic Toxic effect of pesticides cause cancer, Parkinsons, diabetes, hormonal disturbances including early puberty and various other diseases. Diminished nutritive value of non - organic produce. Slide 50 Vegetable Percentage of dry weight Millequivalents per 100 grams d
