8 Weeks To Optimum Health - Week 2

Here are the "rules" for Week 2:
  • Check your water.  Contact your water company for contaminates or have it sent off to be tested.  Do not drink chlorinated water.  Drink filtered water or bottled water only.
  • Eat salmon once this week and broccoli twice this week.  Choose wholegrain breads or cereals.  Try something made with soy.  Try to substitute green tea for coffee.
  • Add mixed carotenes to your supplements of Vitamins C & D3.  Take 10,000 to 15,000 IU of beta-carotene with related compounds such as alpha-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin.  The mixture must contain lycopene to give the full benefits.
  • Walk - 15 minutes.  Add some hills, if possible.
  • Visit a park.  Try a one day news fast - don't watch, listen, or read any news for a period of 24 hours.  Continue with the breath observation for 5 minutes each day.  For 1 minute, practice beginning your breath cycle with exhalation and ending with inhalation -- concentrate on this while you do the exercise.
  • Pay attention to mental imagery.  What has strong emotional impact?  How can you adopt them for healing visualization?
In order to be honest with you all, I have done week one several times, but never made it to week 2.  Now starts the new ground.  I plan to look for the Wild Alaskan salmon again this week, and make something with tofu.  I have a wonderful cookbook for a vegetarian restaurant in Athens, GA called The Grit.  They had wonderful food and used tofu in several of their dishes.  The rest I'll figure out as I go along.

Have a great and healthy week!
