Dr. Carol’s Transformation Tips
for Health and Peak Vitality!
The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease. ~Thomas Edison
The first thing we must establish is that our body is a living organism, made up of “living” cells and cell food is LIVING, RAW FOOD! The body processes these raw building materials (enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals) and transforms them into “fuel” for restoration and PEAK health. Our bodies have the amazing ability to heal themselves when given the proper “fuel” to rebuild and restore its immune system and essential body organs. Food is your best “medicine” as it heals from the inside out vs. treatment with drugs that suppress unwanted symptoms. I invite you to implement some of my “Golden Rules” to help you regain your health and live well into your aging years for vitality:
Avoid stimulants like white sugar, coffee, tea, cigarettes, alcohol, and table salt.
Avoid hydrogenated (processed) oils, trans-fats & margarine.
Avoid simple (refined) carbohydrates, including white bread, crackers, cakes and other processed foods (made with white "enriched" flour).
Avoid unnatural additives, flavorings, and preservatives (MSG, maltodextrin, aspartame...).
Fill 1/2 your plate (or more) w/ raw fruits and veggies (www.choosemyplate.gov); add Juice Plus for those who can't, won't or don't eat this way consistently every day (learn more by going to my nutrition webpage at www.drcarolwatson.com).
Eat more beans, lentils, raw seeds, raw nuts and whole grains; plant power.
Drink plenty of pure water (1/2 body wt. in ounces).
If lactose or gluten intolerant or allergies or any chronic condition; eliminate dairy and wheat products.
IF eating meat: only organic (no antibiotics or hormones), grass-fed poultry, beef or bison or wild caught fish (plants provide fuel and nutrition for peak health; meat slows the process down).
Avoid pork as it is contaminated with parasites and difficult to digest (I haven’t eaten it since 1995 when I learned this)!
Avoid processed, cured, smoked or dried meat (bacon, hot dogs, cold cuts); they are carcinogenic.
Avoid shellfish (lobster, crab, shrimp) they are contaminated with parasites & viruses. Bottom-feeders are referred to as “cockroaches of the sea”….I avoid them completely!
Because I know, first-hand, how challenging it can be to eat like this every day, I recommend whole food supplementation to bridge the gap and a simple way to take that FIRST STEP. I cannot ethically recommend SYNTHETIC, man-made vitamin pills; science has documented that they may be doing more harm than good!
Do you find it difficult to consume the recommended 10-13 servings of fresh, raw fruits and vegetables for prevention? The anchor that I take and have been recommending for 18+ years is Juice Plus+. It is concentrated powder produce from a variety of over 30 fruits, veggies, and berries in capsule or yummy chewable form! Most of the active plant food enzymes and other vital nutrients found in fresh, raw fruits and vegetables remain intact making Juice Plus+ the next best thing to eating fresh, raw fruits and vegetables. A major advantage with Juice Plus+ is that most of the salt, sugar, and calories are removed in the reduction to powder process, making it safe for those with diabetes & cardiovascular disease who so desperately need these antioxidants. And it is so “clean” that it is safe for young children, elderly and cancer patients! It is the most thoroughly researched and #1 consumed whole food nutritional product the world! That’s why I can recommend it with confidence. Additionally, we have a balanced Omega blend that is 100% plant-sources; NO fishy after taste! Ask me about that! Juice Plus+ fruit, vegetable, and Omega blends are my "nutritional seatbelt" that I rely on every day for optimal health, energy, AND graceful aging!
