Clean The Lungs

Your lungs are the greatest asset in keeping well. Whenever waste material has been produced and harbored in the body, much of it has been broken down into various gases. This is the main course of bad breathe. This indicates that intestinal putrefaction has taken place and that the other eliminative channels are not carrying off the decomposed food waste as they should. It has been said that the lungs eliminates approximately two pounds of waste matter a day, which is equivalent to that thrown off by the kidneys or bowels.

Keep the lungs passages as free of catarrh as possible by avoiding too many flour products. In fact, avoid all starches, creamed soup and such-like. The lung structure is normally pink in composition, but city air, full of soot and smoke from factories soon turns the lung black. It is time we realize that the lungs must be kept in good healthy condition. This we can do through outdoor exercises in clean air. A man too busy to care for his health is like a mechanic too busy to care for his tools.

Hike or walk daily outside of the city limits or in the hills, clean the tissues with clean air. It is said that automobile exhaust gas hovers close to the ground, or at most, rises only about eight feet. Get above this level and rejuvenate yourself. Many cases of thyroid troubles and goiters vanish simply by moving the patient away from the gaseous automobile center in which he resides.

If troubled with catarrh or expectoration from the lungs, get into the hills often for hiking. Possibly you will have to change your occupation if you are inhaling unhealthy gases. Sleep in a healthy environment. Make certain that your other eliminative organs are working properly.


Onions or any of the onions family has a powerful stimulating effect on the lungs. Drink onion water, garlic or leek water or both from any of the cooked onion family. Drink at times of coughing, soreness or tenderness in lungs. You may add eucalyptus, honey and drink hot.


For extreme coughing, pour honey over some cut-up onions and let stand all night. Drink one teaspoonful of this juice every hour.


Nature has produced a perfect breathing mechanism by the proper use of which health can be restored to many who has been pronounced incurable. Asthma in its worst form has been permanently cured by breathing exercises. Natural methods have been disregarded and injections substituted with disastrous results. These artificial methods do not cure, they only kill. We find that most people who suffer from asthma are either intercostal or clavicular breathers. A contraction of the bronchial tubes is caused by the contracted form of breathing, which is carried subconsciously to the nervous system controlling the action of the lungs. You see an asthmatic person coming along, and he breathes shallowly. Immediately he breathes from the diaphragm, the tension goes. Natural breathing is a cure for asthma. Asthma is more of a nervous than of an organic nature.

In my next post, I will teach you some natural breathing methods/exercises. Keep living healthily.

Importance Of Water For Life

We have stressed the importance of drinking water in our previous post, however there is the need to further emphasize on it. Why should  I drink water? I do not feel thirsty. Well, if I may say to you , the cause of your not feeling thirsty is the fact that you have put off nature’s demand for so long that nature demands no more. You have refused to hear nature’s call. It is astounding to see so many people who hardly drink water whatsoever, and some even think it is not good for them. Seventy five percent of your body is made up of water. Water can be mixed with fruit or vegetable juices.

There is a large amount of fluid that passes through your skin in invisible evaporation daily. Also, nearly half a gallon of water is required to digest your food alone. A large percentage of people are sick because their bodies lack the necessary fluids. Just as the plants dies from the want of water, so are many people doing the same thing, slowly die from the want of fluids. Coffee or tea are not healthy fluids.

If I were to drink a cup of distilled water, it would attract every particle of waste matter it can hold. If I put tea and sugar into that fluid, it hold no value for me. The fluid is so filled already with waste matter that it cannot cleanse, but leaves further deposits in the body. If you deprive yourself of the pure life-giving fluid, you suffer the consequences and wonder why. Give your body the amount of fluid it requires daily.

Our sweat, is loaded with many waste products, refuse, and filth of the body system, if these waste matter is allowed to remain in the body, it serves as a breeding and feeding ground for germs and microbes. Without the necessary amount of water, the glands of the skin become clogged and dry and do not function.

The skin is an excretory organ. The waste in the body is carried to the skin. Blood vessels surround these little glands and absorb the waste  and throw it out through the pores of the skin by means of perspiration. Out of eight pounds of waste in the body, five pounds are evaporated through the skin.. Suppose the glands becomes clogged and the pores becomes blocked, then, the skin becomes dry and poisons are circulated back again into the blood.

The kidneys are the next organs of elimination and they try to eliminate poisons, however, they can only do a certain amount. Anybody with kidney failure will have an inactive skin, which is usually as a result of lack of sufficient amount of clean fluid in the system. Without enough water in the system, the skin is unable to function and throw an extra amount of work on the kidneys. This is why so many people suffer from kidney troubles.

A normal adult excretes every twenty four hours about two pints of water through the skin, about two quarts through urination, about one pint through the excretory process of the bowels, and about one and a half pint through the lungs by exhalation.

Water is needed for a number of purposes. It regulates the combustion in the cell tissue and gets it under control. Cells in the body die from lack of water and are left to stagnate and create growths, tumors, and cancer- a conglomeration of dead cells, taking upon itself its own growth independent of the real life of the body in general.

Water is also used in the body as the common carrier. It is the basis of your blood, which flows through the arteries and veins, carrying food to various parts of the body. Without fluids, the quantity of blood must decrease, and consequently your body must suffer. It is necessary for the digestion of your food. The glands have to be replenished with fresh juices, the nervous system requires a conductor which carries the messages to different parts of the body. Without fluids, nature’s works cannot be carried on.

If you deny yourself of water, nature manages to obtain them as best as she can, and sometimes it is necessary for her to extract the moisture from the faeces, that mass of matter lying in the colon waiting excretion. Just imagine the fluids extracted from this matter being circulated through your system to your glands again., and then secreted again for the digestion of your food, and again circulated through your blood. This is how people who do not drink the necessary amount of water, are saturated with filth, diseases, and germs.

Nine-tenths of the causes of chronic constipation arise from the want of water, this can be cured by drinking sufficient clean fluids everyday. Recommendation: Drink a glass of clean warm water on an empty stomach every morning.


Why Do I Crave Junk Food.

Now, ponder on this, Do you like cold water? Many people hate water. Do you know why? Because they have craving for sweets, ale, soda, and soft drinks, or for beer or other forms of alcohol. What a pervasion of nature’s gifts!

Man has to live and foods were created for him, yet, we forget these foods of nature and chose artificial ones, which we call food and drink. No wonder we are victims to all sorts of diseases. For your own particular benefit, give up all these cravings for tobacco, liquor, chewing gum, and foods which are not fit for human consumption. You spoil the natural hunger of the child by replacing it with a craving for sweets, candy, etc.. Why not give fruits and nature’s own food instead of conglomeration of modern civilization?. Allow a child to retain its natural taste.

Natural hunger and thirst express themselves through the nerves of the mouth and throat. The thought or mention of food creates in the mouth a sensation, which causes the salivary glands to eject saliva. The stomach itself does not come into any evidence whatsoever in such circumstances, but with a false-appetite habit, there is a faintness, an emptiness, a gnawing sensation in the region of the stomach; all the characteristics of real hunger have vanished. Cultivate therefore, a natural hunger and return to the natural principles of life.

I know people who breakfast on porridge, a couple of eggs with bacon, toast and coffee, and as if that is not enough, they eat another couple of slices of bread and butter. When the clock strike twelve, they feel empty. This empty and gnawing feeling in the pit of the stomach is a habit and must be eliminated by reducing the diet to a minimum.

All over the world, it has been proved that where people do not get too much to eat, they are healthier. The majority of people are overfed and under nourished, if you want a perfect health, pay attention to this hunger gift of nature and not to your cravings, which you have created.

There is a secret in absorbing the energy out of the food you eat and the water you drink. There is a substance known as vital energy in all natural foods, and when you break up the cells by proper mastication, this force is released, and absorbed into the nervous system. When you masticate natural food properly and drink water slowly, you absorb vital energy. Water should be held in the mouth before swallowing to absorb vital energy into the body.

The food you eat, the air you breath, and the water you drink, are all saturated with this mighty energy. Elements we know of , such as potassium, calcium, fluoride, and silicon are merely superficial compared with this wonderful energy that is within.

The proper method of drinking water is by sipping it slowly, proper breathing is by breathing in tune with the universe(slowly), while proper eating is by masticating the food until it is almost  melts away in your mouth. By following these instructions, you will gain a greater amount of nourishment from the food you eat, the water you drink, and the air you breath. Remember not to gulp your food, and do not eat large quantity of food.


Nourishment is the only thing that should count when considering the food you eat. It is your duty towards your body that it should be thoroughly nourished with a supply of new fresh material to replace the worn-out and discarded material. Overeating is not nourishment, it is the cause of many troubles today. The body cannot absorb large quantity of food, and nature cannot eliminate the poisons absorbed into the body through overeating; these poisons becomes encumbrances which lodge in any cavity that nature can find.

The organs of excretion are these: the lungs through exhalation, the skin through evaporation, and the kidneys by secreting the uric acid, the bowels by elimination of waste, if any of these is impaired, your body suffers. Overeating is sometimes the cause of disease. People eat so much that their digestive organs are unable to cope with the food and consequently in the stomach there is an undigested mass of putrefaction, which cannot be absorbed by the body, it clogs up the various glands of the stomach, and a great deal of energy is required to expel the excess amount of matter. as a result the, the digestive organs give up in disgust. Often, it is advisable for people to have a rest from eating for a few days and take fruit juices and vegetable juices for 3 days and then for a while go in for a diet of fruit and milk.

Fruits has the effect of cleansing out the cell structure. Raw


vegetables and salads has the effect of cleansing the intestines, and juices are easily digested and absorbed. Fruit and milk diet has cured more people of troubles than any other diet known. Fruit has the power of eliminating from the milk the catarrhal effect that it sometimes has on some people, and it reduces the action of the protein. The acids of the fruit act upon the nitrogenous substance of the milk and make it absorbed more easily into the body. Sour milk is excellent for sour stomach. Milk diluted with grapefruit juice, or any of the citric juices has a curdling effect on the milk and affects the stomach in a wonderful way by regenerating the mucous lining.


Your nourishment is obtained from the proper mastication of your food. Eat the plainest foods possible, encourage your taste for simple foods and keep away from rich pastry and the expensive triumphs of the wonderful cook-shops. These are only palate-tickler, such kinds of foods have little or no nutriment in them. Some people live to eat, my advise is eat to live. People who live to eat are gluttonous, overweight, they overburden their bodies. Overeating is a vicious habit, deadly to both body and soul.

When people grow older, they do not require half the amount of food that they require when younger, overeating often affect the heart. Heart troubles are very common among wealthy people due to their lavish eating habits. If you are a victim of a heart trouble due to your expensive eating habit, and needs a cure, then, put yourself on a diet of only fruits and vegetable juices for five days, to be followed by a fruit and milk diet for three weeks, you will be completely cured of your heart troubles, try it, it works wonders!. Go on a light diet for three months.


In most heart cases, experience has shown that decreasing the diet and eating simple foods relieves the supposed heart disease; in fact, the trouble  often is nothing more than a dilated stomach pressing against the walls of the heart and setting up a nervous reaction affecting the smooth running of that wonderful organ.
