The Four Truths
As many of you know, we were away for two weeks in Tucson, Arizona at The Creative Health Solutions Clinic. It's run by anti-aging health coach and Jing Master Truth Calkins. He is a renowned health and wellness expert on the West Coast. His successful practice developed while he was working at Erewhon Natural Foods Market, where he ran the Tonic Bar.
Truth's approach to health maintenance is rooted in four principles.
- Healthy Eating
- Supplements + Herbs
- Health Technologies
Truth Number 1: Healthy Eating
No brainer, right? But what is healthy eating? What diet do you follow? I do not like the word diet, btw. Truth suggests a simple rule: 60% raw (which includes salads, vegetable juices, blended soups), 40% cooked (quality animal proteins and steamed veggies). The goal here is to get into KETOSIS. This fancy new word means abandon the sugars altogether and get your energy from ketones produced in the liver from the fat, ether plant or animal based. Hello olives, avocados, sesame seed butter, pumpkin seed oil, organic chicken/beef, veal, soaked chia and golden flax seeds, fish oil, sardines and anchovies, gee, highly worshipped coconut butter, bone broth to list a few here. Good Bye fruits, all of them, starchy veggies, beans, legumes, good bye my beloved potatoes. Red skin potatoes are allowed occasionally, although in a very small doses. This ketogenic way of getting your energy from fat, not glucose will deliver you into anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, colon healthy, lean muscled body we all dream of. Truth also teaches "Body Ecology Diet" way of eating. So adding raw cultured probiotic food to each meal is a must. There are a few cultured probiotic food you can buy at the stores, or online and certainly you can make your own. I can share the recipe for home made raw sauerkraut, just ask me.
My fave at The Whole Foods is Inner Eco Coconut probiotic Kefir, Veggie Delight Light Zing Salad from Rejuvenate Foods and Ozuke citrus & ginger kraut from Mrs. Green's Natural Market.
Pure, structured - Vitalized water is a necessary part of healthy eating. See my previous blog on the Vitalizer. Since then I added counter top Reverse Osmosis unit called AquaTru™. I will be happy to show it to you, when you come next time. Actually, you will be drinking the amazing water I make for you using all my water devices.
There are plenty books on the subject of healthy eating and benefits of cultured foods. Here are some links below. As soon as Truth Calkins website is live, you will get his link.

Truth Number 2: Exercises
Simple daily exercises include 30 to 60 minutes of rebounding and 15 minutes doing Five Tibetan Rites. Hiking, running or biking will be a great benefit to daily activity for many of you. We need to move more, sit less. You probably heard me saying: " Move your movables"
You have seen my living room sporting cool exercise equipment. Three times a week you will find me at The LifeCycle Studio riding Real Ryder bike. I also take three daily walks with Dr. Dexter adding up to my "Move the movables". And after our trip to Truth's center Rebounding and Tibetan Rites are new addition to the morning routine. Do as I say and do, right?
Rebounding or exercising on mini-trampoline was endorsed by NASA as the best exercise invented by man. Truth recommends Bellicon brand, 44" frame with soft bands, instead of metal springs. You can burn 350 calories in 30 min., using all muscle groups, improve your balance and flexibility, even watch favorite show doing it. We are in the process of replacing our old metal spring rebounder with the Bellicon brand.
Five Tibetans are five yogic dynamic poses repeated 21 times each. The main documented benefits are improved energy and activation of anti-aging process.

Truth Number 3: Supplements and Herbs
Big subject! Do you supplement your food intake with vitamins and minerals or not? Do you add herbs to the protocol, or not?
It is a personal decision for each one of you. I advocate using them wisely and consistently for the best results. I always suggest to consult with a professional on the need, brand, quantity and duration. Not all supplements/herbs created equal.
And everyone's needs are different. There are several supplements although, that proven to be of outmost benefit to everyone. In my previous newsletter we discussed them and listed them for you in Fullscript- my virtual dispensary- under the tab "Minimum 4."
Today I am introducing additional two natural compounds derived from food, that I take daily, to support my immune system and promote anti-aging, of course.
Modifilan - dehydrated and powdered seaweed Laminaria. Read more about Modifilan here.
AHCC (active hexose correlated compound) superfood, produced from Shiitake mushroom, grown in rise bran extract. It is known as Japanese Medicinal Mushroom Immune Enhancer. This time-tested superfood became widely accepted treatment in Japan for autoimmune and life threatening diseases along with its noted ability to relieve unpleasant side effects of many chemotherapy drugs ( not my case, hope not yours ether). Since it is a natural compound, you can get it without prescription, yay! Here are some conditions, that AHCC is proven to be very effective: chronic pain, diabetes, cardiovascular, stress, infections, inflammations due to acute injuries, exposure to toxic chemicals and cancer.
The book that I list for you below provides three pages of references to the studies. Good read, if you want to learn more on AHCC.

Truth Number 4: Health Technologies: Electromagnetic Medicine
My particular interest in these technologies may be explained by my first education with my MS in Engeneering - Knowing, that everything is energy and all energy is electromagnetic in nature. Science has proven that all cells in our our body actually project their own magnetic field and all 70 trillion cells communicate via electromagnetic frequencies. Nothing happens in the body without an electromagnetic exchange. When the electromagnetic activity ceases, life ceases. So it is easy to understand the long history of electromagnetic medicine and its widely used diagnostic machinery in addition to the invention of the electromagnetic devices, that help to promote healing and longevity.
There are several such devices that I offer to you along with hands-on Reflexology/Reiki healing: Far Infra Red compact mat, Far Infra Red SOQI bed, Bio-Medici Magnetic Pulser, Chi Machine, Zapper.
After spending time with Truth in Arizona I added two new devices to this list. All devices can be easily combined with hands-on treatment, or used on its own.
First introductory session is FREE for you, after that it is billed at $60/hour.
"Photon Genie is the result of decades of research and development, innovating and advancing the concepts of Tesla, Rife, Abrams and Lakhovsky. Ed Skilling used proprietary processing of full-spectrum energy and infinite harmonics with “Skilling Advanced Electronics” to promote restoration of cell functions and cell regeneration. Photon Genie application re-establish harmonic energy program of each cell, organ, system of the body. It devitalizes pathogens, thus reducing infections, while slowing and reversing the disease process, breaking up mineral deposits thru repolorazing cells and lastly detoxifying body by moving and balancing lymphatic and circulatory systems.

The SOTA Magnetic Pulser
This compact unit offers the benefits of 6,000 Gauss strong pulsed magnetic field to help balancing your body's natural electromagnetic field. Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields influence cell behavior by inducing electrical changes around and within the cell. Improved blood supply increases the oxygen pressure, activating and regenerating cells. Improved calcium transport increases absorption of calcium in bones and improves the quality of cartilage in joints, decreasing pain dramatically. Acute and even chronic pain, also caused by arthritis and osteoporosis, may disappear completely.
