'Wholistic' Health Tips
Dis-ease Prevention, Maintenance, and Cure
Executing high-priority 'Preventive Protocols' can
prevent exposure to dis-eases and is an important
phase in reducing/preventing the spread of
communicable/infectious dis-eases.  Keep your body
Once a communicable/infectious dis-sease is
contracted, it is important to isololate/quarantine the
patient and take special attention executing
high-priority 'Preventive Protocols' when attending to
the needs of the patient, to reduce/eliminate any
additional exposure to the dis-ease.
Developing cures is a lengthy and sometimes an
unpredictable process with insufficient time to observe
long-term side-effects; however in urgent times, it may
be necessary to administer 'untested/uncertified'
medicines to bring under control and eventually
eradicate the dis-ease(s) being treated.
Our Philosophy on Health...
Prevention is 100% better than the cure!
Health starts with Knowledge of Self!
'Diet' and 'Exercise' versus 'Nutrition' and 'Fitness'.  These sets of
terms are used interchangeably and are respectively synonymous;
however, they tend to be viewed as soley related to our physical
attributes, but in many cases, whether intentionally or
inadvertently, omitted from our mental and spiritual attributes.  It
must be noted that it is critical to understand that equity in feeding
and developing each of our attributes leads to optimum
performance.  What we feed our mind, body, and soul will
determine our contribution as a human being.
Start with pre-natal care.  What does this mean?  It means that the
health of the parents is critical to the health of the fetus.  As parents
or potential parents, we must higherstand that what we ingest
physically, mentally, and spiritually, feeds our offspring.

acidity. (n.d.). The American
Heritage® Stedman's Medical
Dictionary. Retrieved May 22, 2014,
from Dictionary.com website:
Human blood pH should be slightly alkaline ( 7.35 - 7.45 ).  Below or
above this range means symptoms and disease.  A pH of 7.0 is neutral.  
A pH below 7.0 is acidic.  A pH above 7.0 is alkaline.  

An acidic pH can occur from, an acid forming diet, emotional stress,
toxic overload, and/or immune reactions or any process that deprives
the cells of oxygen and other nutrients.  The body will try to
compensate for acidic pH by using alkaline minerals.  If the diet does
not contain enough minerals to compensate, a build up of acids in the
cells will occur.  

An acidic balance will:  decrease the body's ability to absorb minerals
and other nutrients, decrease the energy production in the cells,
decrease it's ability to repair damaged cells, decrease it's ability to
detoxify heavy metals, make tumor cells thrive, and make it more
susceptible to fatigue and illness.  A blood pH of 6.9, which is only
slightly acidic, can induce coma and death.  

The reason acidosis is more common in our society is mostly due to the
typical American diet, which is far too high in acid producing animal
products like meat, eggs and dairy, and far too low in alkaline
producing foods like fresh vegetables.  Additionally, we eat acid
producing processed foods like white flour and sugar and drink acid
producing beverages like coffee and soft drinks.  We use too many
drugs, which are acid forming; and we use artificial chemical sweetners
like NutraSweet, Spoonful, Sweet 'N Low, Equal, or Aspartame, which
are poison and extremely acid forming.  One of the best things we can
do to correct an overly acid body is to clean up the diet and lifestyle.  

To maintain health, the diet should consist of 60% alkaline forming
foods and 40% acid forming foods.  To restore healthy balance, an
interim diet should consist of 80% alkaline forming foods and 20% acid
forming foods.

Generally, alkaline forming foods include: most fruits, green vegetables,
peas, beans, lentils, spices, herbs and seasonings, and seeds and nuts.  

Generally, acid forming foods include: meat, fish, poultry, eggs, grains,
and legumes.

Whenever the body is overloaded (biochemically imbalanced), it tries
to get rid of the toxic (imbalanced) state.  It uses urine and bowel
movements to keep it free of toxics.  Further, when these two fail, it
uses the skin (bumps, acne, blackheads, herpes, rashes, measles,
smallpox, etc.) to rid itself of toxins.  If this fails, the body uses the lungs
and nasal cavities to get rid of toxins (sinuses, running nose, bronchitis,
catarrh).  In addition, the body uses a warning signal such as a
headache to notify you of a toxic state.  In African wholistic medicine,
the cause of the toxic state would be treated through herbs and
cleansing diet.  European medicine treats the symptoms with aspirin,
cold suppressants, antihistamines, cough syrups, and skin creams.  
Consequently, the body remains toxic and fertile for another dis-ease

African holistic Health by Llaila O. Afrika (pg. 6-7)
The primary goal of adhering to an Ital
diet is to increase Livity, or the life
energy that Rastafari generally believe
lives within all human beings, as
conferred from the Almighty.

Ital normally refers to food in it's natural form.  This means that it is not
grown with chemical fertilizers or pesticides and has little to no
processing.   Ital in most cases, refers to food that does not have any
sugar or processed salt.  Sea salt for many is acceptable, but there are
some that are strict adherents and only each raw vegetables that have
not been cooked , contain artificial additives, or added ingredients, such
as iodinated salt.
Coconut is an example of an Ital food in the Grains and Nuts category
and can be naturally processed to produce an

  Meditation is listening to your (inner higher) self.

The highest form of meditation is doing your best. By doing, applying
oneself fully to each activity that is engaged, persons quiet their senses,
and open themselves to the flow from the universal essence. Messages
and guidance from the unconscious mind can then filter down into the
conscious mind. Many of our earliest ancestors deep in central Africa
understood the principle of meditation well. This is what they lived.
Their understanding stemmed in part from their observations of
natural law, and the application of that law in their everyday lives.
Meditation was not something they set apart time for, they
automatically did this as a natural part of their survival. They meditated
in each action and behavior that was undertaken. Clearly they gained a
lot of benefits by doing their utmost best in everything they engage.
Persons nowadays can also benefit by doing likewise.

Honesty, integrity and moral conduct is something that needs to be
constantly worked at, in chipping away the inevitable corruption.

Why Do African- American Men Suffer More Prostate Cancer?

African-American men have had the highest prostate cancer incidence
rate of any racial ethnic group in the world. At 261.9 new cases per
100,000 in 1993, their rate is two-thirds higher than whites and more
than twice as high as rates for Asian-Americans. Prostate cancer is not a
young man’s disease. The median age at diagnosis is 68. Doctors
diagnose most prostate cancers in men who are age 65 or older.

Factors that can increase your risk of prostate cancer include:

"Older age." Your risk of prostate cancer increases as you age.

"Being black." Black men have a greater risk of prostate cancer than do
men of other races. In black men, prostate cancer is also more likely to
be aggressive or advanced. It's not clear why this is.

"Family history" of prostate or breast cancer. If men in your family have
had prostate cancer, your risk may be increased. Also, if you have a
family history of genes that increase the risk of breast cancer (BRCA1 or
BRCA2) or a very strong family history of breast cancer, your risk of
prostate cancer may be higher.

"Obesity." Obese men diagnosed with prostate cancer may be more
likely to have advanced disease that's more difficult to treat.

Massaging:  First, to get going and relieve some tension, squeeze the
entire foot -- top and bottom, using one or both hands.  This should be
done with firm finger pressure applied down the middle of the foot.

For a quick energy boost, stimulate the thyroid gland reflex point
located between and under the big and second toe.  With a firm grasp,
use your thumb to apply pressure on this point for seven seconds.  
Repeat three times.

The sinus reflexes located on the toes can be stimulated to facilitate
breathing.  Pull the tip of the toe with your fingers and rotate.  Use
gentle movements.  Now, press the toe tips and hold for ten seconds.  
Do this three times on all ten toes.

Even though we've discussed self massage, the rewards of offering
reflexology as a service to your clients can be tremendous.

About 7 percent of married people and 17.7 percent of partnered
people in their 30s and 40s say they haven't had sex in the past year,
according to the 2010 National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior.
Whether you find that comforting or alarming, Fulbright wants to
remind you of
the fringe benefits of getting busy: Sex improves the
muscle tone of the pelvic floor, lubricates the vaginal tissues, can
help prevent yeast infections, releases stress, and eases migraines,
chronic back pain and PMS-related cramps.  Sex also has the
potential to lower your risk of developing heart disease and can
boost your immune system.
