This Page will have some Discoveries I've made that are lighter in profile after the serious matters we need to address for Optimum Health OR a New Lease on Health. Some of them will be UPLIFTING.....Enjoy the experience!
The Oriental People decorate their meals.....they like this exercise.....they take time to SAVOR them as they eat. This makes for better digestion and you ENJOY the Experience - something like dining in a Nice Restaurant.
It is better to eat when you are not tired or stressed - and you will benefit MORE from your meal. This makes for better life processes in your body following the meal.

THIS IS THE COMMENCEMENT OF MY ARTICLE I WROTE IN PART LATE LAST YEAR
I HAVE BEEN VERY BUSY WITH A FEW OTHER WEBSITES BESIDES THIS ONE.
SIGNATURES OF FOODS
of Signatures" that was popularized in the early 1600s and
practiced previously by people who believed in a Creator God who made
many foods and herbs to resemble different parts of our bodies to
give us an indication that they are good for that area of our health
and could bring healing to certain conditions. Some Christians
remembered a verse in their Bible that said "I
have given you every
the earth and all
fruit trees for your food” when noticing the remarkable resemblance
to our brain, heart, ears and eyes etc they started adopting various
foods into their diet as different foods - in this light – became
part of their conversation. They felt that God had revealed this
insight to them. There were Chinese people who practiced this
also......because our Creator's 'signature' on these foods and herbs
are nothing short of AMAZING when you realize. I've been aware of
this for some time but thought I would research it. So I will share with
you my findings to Enjoy. 12 - Oct - 2014
I should add that Scientists of Today are researching many of these
Herbs and Foods. They are looking into them and finding stunning
accuracies to their medicinal values! It's nice to make new
discoveries is'nt it? And it is my intention not to disappoint you
- because I kept finding a repetition of a small handful of veges - so
I pursued it further. I was so keen to find more myself in this
venture, just a few did'nt satisfy me. Personally, I like to call
this phenonema the Signatures of Foods, and I will do my best
to group them for you with a
combination of INFO I have gleaned! Shall
there is CARROT the obvious one. Have you ever noticed that the
uniform pattern in a slice of carrot closely resembles our EYES with
the markings of the IRIS? This is because they contain Beta Carotene
that converts to VITAMIN A that enhances blood flow to the eyes and
benefits their function. Carrots are also a good source of two
Anti-oxidants that are specific for our eyes known as LUTEIN and
ZEAXANTHIN that help to shield our eyes from the effects of
light like an internal pair of sunshades. They also help to protect
the retina from AMD (macular degeneration) if your dietary intake
of these is adequate. They also contain natural SULPHUR for
cleansing and collagen in the lense of the eye.
we have WALNUTS really amazing if you look at them__ an exact
replication of the shape of our BRAIN.....hey? Each
like a miniature brain with a left and right hemisphere, upper
and lower cerebellums.
The wrinkles and folds it contains strongly resemble the neo-cortex.
In fact, the inside and the outside of a walnut looks just like our
brain. Walnuts are high in DHA, a type of Omega-3 fatty acid
essential for brain health. Nuts are noted for their boron
content and each one can
improve our mental health in their own way and walnuts are
no exception. They are brain food figuratively and literally
speaking. One of the best things you can do for your brain is to
have 6-8 daily. People from Syria love them and they are really
smart! Yes, walnuts
are a real brain food__ the fatty acids and the 15-20% protein
nourish the nervous system. We
now know that the healthy omega-3 fats in walnuts are great for brain
even contain 65% healthy fats that our brain loves because it is 60%
Fat. So keep your brain happy and Healthy!
there is the TOMATO that represents the HEART with it's four
Chambers, that faithfully pumps our Blood every day. Tomatoes
are rich in Lycopene, a phytonutrient that has been used for treating
cardiovascular disease. They
also contain MOLYBDENUM that has a lot to do with how our cells
function. It relates to the Mitocondria that is
the Powerhouse to our cells and this same Molybdenum is required
for making our heart beat and the making of New Healthy Cells. No
wonder Italians have such strong Healthy Hearts! Their diets
are rich in tomatoes 5-7 days a week.......they work long hours as
builders and market gardeners etc
As a bonus, some of the Molybdenum
in our body activates enzymes that are required
for waste removal via
a metabolic cleansing process of detoxification. The Lycopene
antioxidant is a bonus too because it's only found in a few foods
but is richly supplied in Tomatoes – providing they are cooked
(this increases the content). Lycopene
has an ability
to enhance connectivity and communication between
cells and it can noticeably improve your skin's texture by aiding
cellular functions that are essential to
keeping your skin looking
may also strengthen your skin by inhibiting the activity of
enzymes involved in the destruction and breakdown of collagen.
So you could say that Tomatoes have Anti-Aging properties and you'd
be right. Lots of research
has established that tomatoes are loaded with lycopene and are indeed
pure heart and blood food.
popular SWEET POTATO is shaped just like the PANCREAS that has to do
this gland healthy is a good thing. Along with other foods this
vege can assist when it comes to maintaining our weight. They
nicknamed the Anti-Diabetes food. Sweet
potatoes are naturally sweet-tasting but their
natural sugars are slowly released into the bloodstream,
helping to ensure a balanced and regular source of energy, without
the blood sugar spikes linked to fatigue and weight gain.
Anthocyanins in Purple Sweet Potatoes increase blood sugar
metabolism and studies show that they may have a positive effect on
abnormal collagen production, a side effect of diabetes that
contributes to poor blood sugar control. One study also suggested
that anthocyanins may be effective in preventing retinopathy, a
diabetic condition that can lead to blindness. The anthocyanins not only prevent an overproduction of proteins but were also shown to
repair leaking, damaged capillaries.
potato provides a good amount of vital minerals such as iron,
calcium, magnesium, manganese, and potassium that are very essential
for enzyme, protein, and carbohydrate metabolism. This
elongated vege promotes healthy function
the pancreas. The Orange Sweet Potato is high in beta-carotene, a
potent antioxidant that protects
all tissues of the body, including the pancreas,
from damage associated with cancer or aging. So you can place them in
your Low Glycemic and Anti-Aging Diet. YES!
you cut a MUSHROOM in half and look at it side ways it looks
remarkably like our EAR. They have a high
content of Vitamin B and Protein for the health of our ears.
If you're lacking in B Vitamins, your hearing can be very sensitive
– and also magnesium. Mushrooms
are a good source of vitamin D, which helps keep
Lack of vitamin D not only weakens your bones, it also
weakens your hearing. This is because your hearing depends on the
vibrations of tiny little bones in your ear that
must also remain
strong and healthy.
of raw mushrooms
of magnesium. According
to Dr. Jonathan Wright, low potassium levels may play a role in poor
hearing and hearing loss. Whether this is due to low potassium intake
or poor functioning of potassium channels in your inner ear, Dr.
Wright suggests that you supplement your diet and increase your
intake of foods rich in potassium.
Bananas are noted for potassium.

Dr Joseph Mercola says if you
experience sudden sensorineural hearing loss, new research
shows supplementing with the mineral zinc may be
The Institute for Natural Hearing website mentions
that a study finds that zinc can improve how quickly
people recover after experiencing sudden hearing loss. And
Higher levels of this mineral in the blood are associated
with better quality of hearing. They
tell you of 4 other nutrients that are significant for hearing.
ADDING KEFIR TO OUR DIET
KEFIR IS NOT TO BE MISTAKEN WITH YOGURT
Benefits of Kefir:
Helps to establish gut flora
Extremely important to
maintaining body systems
Resulting in “healthy flora”
making up to 80% of the GI tract
The role of 20% microbes like candida
that are beneficial in small amounts
given this ratio, they properly
perform their tasks of regulating our metabolism
producing various hormones and
nutrients, preventing the growth of harmful bacteria.
This helps to protect our
Immune System in a natural way.
Kefir will help your gut to
regain this equilibrium – fostering better health.
Your Immune System will
function much better.
Unchecked candida – where it
dominates – can often cause frequent headaches
and cloudy thinking.
Food allergies and rashes can
also occur, leading to other health problems. They do not always show up
straight away. Stress and poor diet (low quality foods) various antibiotics and
medications are known to throw our gut flora out of wack, that results in
unhealthy flora playing a dominant role we hear of as “candida” that affects more people than you would think.
Candida is the common
underlying cause of many health maladies in our modern-day. It’s often the
reason why we feel tired and lethargic, unmotivated….. and also for unexplained
irritability. Insomnia is very common. This can be not being able to get to
sleep or waking up between 1-3am and finding it difficult to get back to sleep or
waking up every hour or so.
Candida affects liver function.
Anxiety, panic and depression can occur from a build up of toxins in the liver
and it fails to function properly. Unhealthy flora builds up this toxicity in
our system and our immune system is compromised also.
When our liver is functioning
harmoniously, we can stay calmer. When you are healthy you’re happy. And the
happier you are, the stronger your immune system will be. Our liver and Immune System need to be built up to maintain their integrity and function well.
Constant use of antibiotics (3 or more times a year) actually hinders your
immune system – it can also
thrash it…….the liver has more toxicity to handle
than it should have. Candida does not help!
Candida Albicans not only causes inflammation; it also uses that
colonize your gut.
Certain types of food increase the risk of inflammation. They include
trans fats, sugar, white bread and alcohol. There is a significant overlap
between inflammatory foods and those which can lead to a Candida overgrowth.
Apart from insomnia, candida
can cause nightmares and restless sleep
The probiotics in Kefir help to
balance our endocrine system (glands) they create natural antibiotics. They
will also help us to colonize our gut with healthy bacteria as it deals with
the other. Most people these days, have only 10% healthy flora and 90% unhealthy.
With the addition of Kefir to a healthy diet, you can achieve the healthy 80%
20% ratio. This is one of the sure ways to optimum health!

Did you know that a GOOD SMILE and a GOOD YAWN can do wonders for you. A yawn at will can help to wind down tension and if you make yourself smile a few times, it sends a message to your brain to relax as if you are happy......Hey?
Scientists tell us that yawning has a cooling effect on our brain. Cool brains can think more clearly; hence, yawning may have developed to
keep us alert.
While yawning is commonly associated with relaxation and drowsiness, your
heart rate can rise as much as 30 percent during a yawn.
