Digestion, Digestion, Digestion. This is where it all begins.
Digestion begins with salivary glands, we need to excite them, the mouth should be drooling and never dry. The secretions in the mouth is what sets up our ability to process, breakdown and assimilate all food into essential nutrients.
Proper eating habits to improve digestion:
A bowl of bitter greens (arugula,dandelion,watercress), olive oil and lemon juice and a piece of protein. This combination will trigger the gallbladder to evacuate, prevent formation of gallstones and stimulate enzyme secretions. A cold breakfast is not indicated if your digestive organs are weak. If you feel fatigued or bloated after consuming the salad, then you are not a candidate for the cold breakfast.
Breakfast, option 2:
Chicken, beef, or fish/seafood broth, made from scratch, pre-packed commercial broths will not serve you. Cook beef, chicken, or fish bones for 24 hours to extract the beneficial nutrients from the bones, these nutrients will tonify blood, tonify yin, and strengthen connective tissue and collagen. Make sure to add some tonifiying herbs to your soup ( you can get this at the clinic).
One hour before your broth is ready, add an assortment of vegetables. Let it steep overnight. Strain your broth, chew on the bones that are soft, and the remainder discard. I recommend drinking 1 quart a day, you may add a grain to your broth.
Breakfast, option 3:
Some form of a soupy meal like oatmeal.
Resistance type exercise most days for at least 30 minutes. Muscle building exercise, military type calisthenics, weight programs at the gym, if running or cycling go uphill, free style swimming.
Stress is the primary trigger for most imbalances in the body, it is responsible for a host of illnesses, we can probably assess the root of most disease in stress.
Adaptation to stress is very important, manage through spiritual practice of yoga, tai chi, qigong, meditation, singing, dancing, etc.
