Q and A’s

Why is detoxification so important?

The concept of detoxification has been practiced since time immemorial, with each culture having their own healing stories which are carried in myths that stretch back to times of forces and energies moving in mysterious ways. The ancient medical texts of India, China and Mesopotamia reveal herbal pharmacopoeia, dietary regulation and cleansing systems firmly established many thousands of years ago. The Greek historian Herodotus recorded that the Egyptians purged themselves every month, to preserve health by emetics for they supposed that all diseases to which men were subject proceed from the food they use.  The Essene communities of Qumram are said to have made use of enemas for both physical and spiritual cleansing. John the Baptist and Jesus are beleived to have been raised within the Essene culture.

Modern day “hygienists” such as Max Gerson during the 1950’s and Bernard Jensen during the 1960’s and 1970’s actively documented the therapeutic value of detoxification, as well as being an integral part of cancer treatment. Gabrielle Cousens from the Tree of Life center is a world authority on reversing diabetes and his program is believed to be the most succesful in the world. Robert Morse from the International School of detoxification has been very succesful in regenerating nerve tissue and reversing cancer. The simple act of detoxification and alkalization has allowed hundreds of people suffering from degenerative diseases to regain their health. Having faith in the vital force within every living system, respecting it and giving it the right environment to heal has allowed miracles to happen.

What happens when we start to detoxify the body?

The body initially goes through what is referred to as a “healing crisis” when it starts to release toxins and old worn out cellular matter from the tissues to be discarded from the body via the eliminative systems, such as the colon, kidneys and skin. Common symptoms that occur are sweats, skin eruptions, fevers, aches and pains, fatigue, irritability, headaches, diarrhoea and flu like symptoms. These symptoms can last for a day, 3 days, a week, 3 weeks or more depending on the level of toxicity within the body. These symptoms can be uncomfortable, but the process is well worth it, as one emerges feeling mentally alert, happy, energized, not to mention the fantastic physical transformation

Detoxification is the most misunderstood natural process the body moves through when it starts to heal. Cellulite disappears, the skin becomes smooth and supple, and eyes regain their sparkle. Digestion improves as the body is better able to assimilate and absorb nutrients. Yearly detoxification is strongly advised, followed by a balanced, nutrient rich diet.

What is live food nutrition?

Live food is fresh organic plant based food which has not been cooked or chemically destroyed. It contains all essential vitamins, minerals, essential oils, amino acids, anti-oxidants, phytochemicals, co-factors and enzymes. Live plant based food are essential in maintaining a healthy body and mind. If you consider anchient myths in the Greek texts, it was siad that Prometheus stole fire from Zeus, and it was due to this that mankind started suffering from disease. In Traditional Chinese Medicine the belief exists that disease started when man discovered fire – and thus started boiling food.

In the 1930s a Swiss scientist, Paul Kouchakoff, showed that the human body needs 51% raw food daily. If the body does not at least get 51% raw food, a process called “digestive leukocytosis” occurs, where the body starts attacking the food as it views it as a pathogen. This is one of the reasons we have so many auto-immune diseases today – look at what we eat.

What is naturopathy?

What is Yoga?

Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual discipline, originating in ancient India. The goal of yoga is the attainment of a state of perfect spiritual insight and tranquility while meditating.

The goals of yoga are varied and range from improving health to achieving liberation from all worldly suffering. The ultimate goal of the yoga process is to enjoy an eternal relationship with Vishnu (God).

Yoga practice is essential for vitality and rejuvenation. The ancient yogi’s fully understood the importance of stretching and strengthening the body through various yoga postures (asanas) and the following benefits can be obtained through this practice:

1. Healthy central nervous system (brain and spine)

Nerves from the brain and spine go to every tissue in the body and therefore the health of every tissue in the body depends upon the health of the brain and spine. Since the nerves from the spine go to all the organs and glands of the body, a healthy spine obviously plays an important role in vitality and rejuvenation. If you do nothing to improve your spine’s flexibility as you get older, your spine will deteriorate and the spinal nerves will be increasingly impinged upon. This will lead to further deterioration of your organs and glands, until eventually their actual structure becomes diseased.

2. Healthy glands

The most important glands being the pituitary, pineal, thyroid, adrenal, pancreas and sex glands. The pituitary and pineal glands are situated in the brain, the thyroid in the neck area, the adrenals and pancreas in the solar plexus area and the sex glands in the pelvic region. The function of these glands is to secrete powerful hormones which control your growth, weight and size. They also determine your metabolism, vitality, sexual drive and emotional state.

3. Healthy internal organs, digestive system, joints and skin

As well as having a dramatic effect on the brain, spine and glands, most postures also benefit the internal organs by massaging and stimulating them. These results in healthier internal organs that will function better and last longer. The postures result in an improved blood and nerve supply to the digestive and eliminative systems, which help the body absorb nutrients and eliminate toxins.

The stretching of the joints causes the secretion of a lubricant called synovial fluid. This is released into the joints and keeps them supple, as well as removing waste products. The result is to reduce stiffness, which will prevent arthritis or improve it if you already have the condition. Stretching of the skin also causes stimulation of the skin cells. This results in firmer, healthier skin which won’t sag or wrinkle.

What is rife?

The Rife Resonator is an electrical device which makes use of Ultrasound frequencies to kill harmful microbes. It was designed by Dr Royal Rife in the 1970’s and is a form of treatment which doesn’t have negative side effects. Microbes are able to be destroyed at certain frequencies without harming the person. Microbes place stress on the body and release toxins themselves. Rife learned that different species of life have their own electromagnetic “signature” – a pattern of oscillation based on its individual genetic chemical blueprint. It’s different for all. Dr. Rife discovered that viruses, bacteria, and parasites are particularly sensitive to their own specific “bio frequencies” and could be destroyed by intensifying that frequencies until it literally explodes… like an intense musical note that can shatter a wine glass! In order to “explode” the microbes, Rife invented a “frequency beam ray” machine.
By including Rife therapy as part of the detoxification process, cleansing is on a much deeper level, and the body is able to release toxins from microrganisms as well as those from the body.

What is quantum SCIO?

The SCIO is a sophisticated, biofeedback system, which is designed for stress detection and stress reduction. It does NOT diagnose any clinical diseases. Imbalances at the energetic or subtle energy level can be an early warning system regarding health status. If imbalances go uncorrected, eventually physical symptoms will erupt, and health problems and disease develop. As well as being an early system of prevention, keeping the subtle energies balanced helps to restore physical energy. The SCIO energetically helps to correct any imbalances, and helps to diagnose which microbes are problematic. Once these are identified, Rife therapy is introduced to eliminate these microbes.
