New up dates to my experience in healthy eating...

Immune Boosting Enoki Mushrooms
All of the edible mushrooms that grow wild (on wood) appear to have special medicinal properties. The Enoki mushroom harbors the polysaccharide, flammulin, which Japanese and Chinese medical researchers claim to have shown anti-tumor/anti-cancer properties.
It should be noted that Nagano, Japan- the heart of Enoki agriculture, has a very low rate of cancer. The Enoki is said to be anti-viral, anti-bacteriological thereby providing a powerful immunological boost and it has been shown to have particularly positive effects in the treatment of prostate cancer and lymphoma.
Health food stores supply Immune 7X with some of the mushrooms mentioned before.
Life Styles- health food stores carry immune 7X.

• Science has proven that cancer is anaerobic - it does not survive in high levels of oxygen.
• Shortness of breath and heart disease are directly linked - the heart goes into spasm when it is deprived of oxygen.
• Studies have shown that there is a high correlation between high blood pressure and poor breathing.
• Most emotional issues, including anxiety and depression, result from the nervous system being out of balance. Breathing drives the nervous system.
• Optimal Breathing helps to promote weight loss. Oxygen burns fat and calories.
• Breathing well is the key to sleeping well and waking up feeling rested.
• Breathing provides 99% of your energy. Without energy, nothing works.
• Virtually every health condition and human activity is improved with Optimal Breathing.

One ratio of breathing I find helpful in increasing my stamina thought the day.
1. Breath- in by counting to 5 so u r lungs r full but not bursting.
2. Hold u r breath to the count of 20
3. Release u breath slowly to the count of 10
This may take a little practice but after a day or so u will love to practice breathing like this any where even driving use the time to increase u r health.
5 times in a row works well and 5 times a day. Before u walk or run before u do any excises before u need to think hard on a problem- solving with a clear head filed with more oxygen. Athletes have known about breathing form the beginning of time.
We can also buy stabilized liquid oxygen to add to the water. There r machines now that take oxygen out of the air and one can breath in this oxygen at u r own home for 10 or 15 minutes in the morning- or when ever u need more energy.

A Slightly Alkaline Body Is Crucial For Good Health
Regardless of how much you work out and try to eat right, if you can't balance the acids in your body, you'll never feel as good as you'd like to be.
The problem is, on a whole, the average western diet is acid-producing. And when acidic wastes accumulate, they can cause organs to malfunction and break down.
If you often feel tired, it's a safe bet that you are overly acidic. The simple fact is, most people are.
Our acid-alkaline balance is a baseline determinant of our physical health.
Add chlorophyll to your water to make the body balanced.

The benefits oh nettle tea.
• Nettle tea fights coughs, tuberculosis and asthma;
• Nettle tea counters arthritis, rheumatism, tendonitis and other disorders of the muscles and joints;

Klaus bohn- some food experiences I have had...

Most of my research is from the internet and speakers i have had the privilege to hear.

Consider these points
1. First drink one glass of water with lime added- 2 table spoons.
2. Eat the salad without drinking water.
3. Wait for 20 minute or more then drink u r smoothie or as u get a little hungry.
4. Drink water with twist of lime or lemon.
5. Tea- nettle with ginger- add honey to taste…
6. For snacking- celery with peanut butter with honey.
After an hour or so eat the health nut bar to satisfy your craving u might have.

I am looking into Tree mushrooms- medicinal mushrooms…

1. Reshi
2. Maitake
3. Shiatake
4. Coriolues-cloud mushroom
5. Agaricus

I will tell u more as I learn more of this super food for our immune system!

Minerals are missing in our diet which I have added to the smoothies and salad.
Minerals also can and will be taken into u r body by being grounded every day with the earth. Walk bare foot or touch the earth every day for 15/20 minutes a day.

As I learn and answer u r questions I will add it to my writings as I research and learn more about health and wellness.

I know that coconut is a very satisfying food to help cure ones craving.
Taste like pudding if u need a little bit more too satisfy u r craving plus it values as shown below. Artisana- organic coconut found in “life styles health store”.
Enjoy the best food every- when our electrical imprint is changed over to live food.

Coconut: The New Superfood
Coconut actually contains a very healthy form of fat called medium-chain triglycerides (MCT). Although MCTs are indeed a form of saturated fat, they have some very unique properties. For example, MCTs are very digestible, which makes them ideal for people with digestive problems such as ulcerative colitis or irritable bowel syndrom

Boost Your Metabolism with Coconut

Medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), the unique fats found in coconut, are easily absorbed and rapidly burned as energy, stoking your metabolism. What’s more, coconut fats blaze through slower-burning long-chain triglyerides

Immune system
In humans, the immune system consists of many types of proteins, cells, organs, and tissues, which interact in an elaborate and dynamic network. The immune system adapts over time to recognize particular pathogens more efficiently. This adaptation creates immunological memories and allows even more effective protection during future encounters with these pathogens.

Mushrooms that come from trees has all the benefits of the trees growth and all the sustains from the gowned over the life of the tree. Just think of all the value the tree has drawn into it self and past on to the mushroom over may100’s plus years filled with minerals and all that the earth has to offer. This without a doubt has not only been shout- after by the oriental countries but is now given consciousness to the west. Truly a helpful medicinal part of our diet, in obtaining a healthy- and maintaining our IMMUNE SYSTEM.
Reshi mushrooms: Reishi Mushroom Benefits
One of the most famous of these mushrooms is the Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum). The Reishi mushroom is referred to by the Japanese as the “Ten Thousand Year Old Mushroom.”
Its Chinese name, ling-zhi, means the “Mushroom of Immortality.”
The Reishi has been evaluated in a variety of studies and it has shown to have a positive affect on retinal pigmentary degeneration, neurasthenia, insomnia, duodenal ulcers, hepatitis and muscular dystrophy
In addition, the Reishi mushroom has pro-immune and anti-cancer properties. (Chang & But, 1986; Chang et al, 1984; Huidi & Zhiyuan, 1982).11
The Reishi mushroom has been found to be rich in immune system stimulating polysaccharides, triterpenoids and specialized proteins that have stimulating effects on immune system function.
In a study conducted by Cancer Research UK, it is said about the Reishi that “The major immuno-modulating effects of these active substances include mitogenicity and activation of immune effector cells such as T cells, macrophages and natural killer cells resulting in the production of cytokines, including interleukins, tumor necrosis factor, and interferon.
The therapeutic action of G. lucidum as an anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory agent has been associated with its immuno-modulating properties (Wang et al., 1977).”12 The promising research regarding these specialized members of the plant kingdom has led to a wave of brand new whole food supplements targeting both immunity and over all health.
Finally, according to a 1987 study (Ying et al., 1987), there are at least 270 species of mushrooms with actual medicinal properties. China and Japan, two countries that have a solid history and ancient ties with the medicinal mushroom, have led the world in bringing focus to the magical mushroom, not just as a culinary delight, but for the inroads it has made into some of the greatest health challenges of modern civilization.

Medicinal Properties of Shitake Mushrooms
The Shitake mushroom (Lentinula edodes) is often found on logs and oaks in forests and is also known as the oak mushroom. In agricultural milieus, it is grown on synthetic logs, sawdust or other usable forms of agricultural waste.
The Shitake mushroom accounts for 10% of the world’s crop of mushrooms. In traditional oriental medicine, there is a wide variety of uses for the mushroom, including its beneficial effect on the functioning of the liver, its regeneration powers, its ability to boost chi (vital biological energy), and its retardation of premature aging.
The mushroom, with modern medicine’s help, has taken on a kind of medicinal renaissance after the successful antitumor research developed in the late 60’s at Purdue University by Tetsuro Ikekawa and his colleagues at the National Cancer Center Research Institute in Tokyo.
Current science is focusing not only on its cancer fighting properties but on substances isolated from the Shitake mushroom that appear to address heart disease and AIDS. The anti-tumor factor continues to be researched.
