Nutritional Counseling

The majority of disease is caused by what we eat and drink. The evidence is irrefutable. Most people have an acidic body as a result of toxicity and primarily what they put in their mouths. They eat acidic foods and as a result, our inner terrain is disturbed so that every kind of disease that carries fungus, virus, and parasite can survive. All sick patients are acidic, which means they have pH readings in the 4s and 5s and a result also because of this acidity is that they have low blood oxygen levels that coexist with the diagnosis of their illness. Fungus, virus, and parasites cannot live in an alkaline environment and expires when confronted with oxygen, so we must oxygenate and alkalinize our body.

So how do we do this?

  • Throw away the microwave.  It kills the enzymes in food.

  • Eat 50% of food raw (if possible). This includes juicing. The best greens to juice would be kale, spinach, celery, cucumber, parsley, and cilantro.

  • See that  20-30%  of  your  calories  are  proteins,  30-65%  fats  and 8- 20%  are unrefined carbohydrates.

  • Throw away aluminum cookware and other coated cookware and cook exclusively in glass, ceramic, or stainless steel.

  • Eat certified organic grown produce. Obtain good fresh produce in season and freeze for later use.

  • Do not wash foods and vegetables in chlorinated water.

  • No black pepper.  It is one of the most acidic foods on the planet.

  • No table salt or iodized salt. Use Himalayan or sea salt.

  • Use only extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil. Don’t use those oils for deep frying as fatty acids break down at high temperature.

  • Avoid rancid seeds, nuts, grains and foods cooked in rancid fats as they contain carcinogens.

  • No commercial salad dressings, only use olive oil, coconut oil, nut oil, oregano oil, lemons, lime, and apple cider vinegar. The company Braggs makes wonderful organic salad dressings and has the premier organic cider vinegar.

  • Eat virtually nothing that comes in package, box, or cans in the local supermarket (eat fresh foods).

  • Eat no meat or very little if you absolutely must to survive. For meat choose fresh wild salmon, free-range chicken, or turkey and wild game may also be used in small amounts.

  • foods).

  • No milk or milk products, cheese, yogurt except organic low-fat cottage cheese as used in the Budwig protocol.

  • No margarine.

  • No coffee or alcohol.

  • Eat organic eggs only.

  • No artificial sweeteners at all accept Stevia.

  • Drink spring water and natural unsweetened  juices in place of other beverages.

  • Use a juicer. Drink only herb teas.

  • Absolutely no soda pop, sport drinks, vitamin or mineral waters, all very acidic.

  • No  refined  flours  or breads  with  yeast  (fungus). Eat  whole  grains. Make  your own bakery products. Buy a flour mill and make your own flour.

  • Eat no white potatoes or white rice

  • No peanuts, cashews, or corn because of molds and fungus and possible source of aflatoxin.

  • No fruits  except for lemons, limes, or avocados, eat lots  of these. Other fruits have sugar in them and will feed your illness.

  • No sugar of any kind.

  • No soy products.

  • Shop in health food store and wisely in a supermarket. Be a label detective.


While you think that there is no food to eat, but actually there is a lot of food you can eat. Lots of vegetables are alkaline and full of nutrients that we all need to support and build up our immune system. Great options for vegetables are spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, cabbage, celery, red, yellow, and green peppers, kale, asparagus, green beans and peas, eggplant, yellow squash, mustard greens, collard, okra, parsley, lettuce, carrots, and water cress. Eat them raw and juice them. Try to have at least 10 ounces of juice, green juice combined with carrot juice daily. In addition don’t forget the importance of taking supplements,  minimizing stress, having positive thoughts and getting plenty of sleep, exercise and natural light.

Basic Cooking Instructions

  • Cook only in stainless  steel, commg- or enamel- ware or glass. Do not use aluminum.

  • Use a natural sea salt sparingly and watch labels for hidden salts in foods.

  • Use a variety of herbs and spices in cooking – thyme, rosemary, sage, nutmeg, cinnamon, etc. for food interest and for stimulating the appetite and the gastric juices.

  • The use of apple cider vinegar aids in maintaining good gastric acidity.



Most vegetables and fruits contain higher proportions of alkaline- forming elements than other foods. These foods promote a more alkaline environment in the body. For example, commercial corn, barley, soybeans and legumes are acid forming. This may reflect breeding selection in the last fifty years that favored higher carbohydrate and fat content. Traditional organically or biodynamicaly grown forms of these grains and grasses may well be much less acid forming. Surprisingly, despite their pronounced acid flavor, citrus fruit and rhubarb form alkaline residues. This is because their distinctive organic acids like citric, succinic, furmaric and malic (Krebs’ DCA or dicarboxylic acid) metabolize to water and alkalinizing bicarbonate, while producing energy (ATP) inside the cell.

Movement is key to increasing oxygenation to your cells as well as eliminate toxins.  A physical therapist will come in weekly to conduct group sessions where she will teach you breathing  techniques and exercises that you can do anywhere. You will also enjoy sessions of vertical whole body vibration therapy, and more specifically, the TurboSonic. The TurboSonic takes ten minutes of your time and can improve your health, strength, endurance, muscle tone, stability, flexibility, and mental outlook without the constraints of conventional exercise. TurboSonic® patented technology accelerates the body’s natural healing response, increases cellular oxygen circulation, enhances cellular nutrient uptake, stimulates cellular fluid movement and facilitates cellular waste removal.

The Importance of an Alkaline Diet

The internal environment of our bodies is maintained at a pH of just about 7.00. This means our internal environment is alkaline. Maintenance of this state is dynamic, not static process mediated moment to moment by numerous reactions that produce acid products. Our internal chemical equilibrium is primarily controlled by our lungs, kidneys, intestines and skin. For necessary reactions and functions to occur, our body must maintain a proper pH adjustment. The body needs oxygen, water and acid- buffering minerals to accomplish the pH buffering, while also briskly eliminating waste products.

When an alkaline environment is maintained in the body, metabolic, enzymatic, immunologic and repair mechanism function at their best. The acid-forming metabolics of stress and inflammation and of high fat and high protein foods are adequately and effectively neutralized only when sufficient mineral- buffering reserves are present. Mineral- buffering reserves are the gift that alkaline- forming foods give to our body. A diet that is predominantly alkaline forming is essential to the maintenance of sustained health.
