The Philosophy of Regeneration

While we cannot say that the Sunrider foods “cure” anything, we can tell you that they support balance by nourishing and cleansing the body. And when the body is balanced it can cure itself. My client (Priscilla) continues to follow my original advice. She remains cancer-free after 10 years. She eats the Sunrider foods every day and she has maintained a lifestyle as free of toxins as possible. The original advice I gave her (and much more) has been included in my new book, The Pure Cure: A Complete Guide to Freeing your Life from Dangerous Toxins. Priscilla was recently featured in a news brief highlighting her story and mentioning the Sunrider foods. You can watch the 2-minute video.
And for more information on my book, please visit the product page.
I also have 2 CDs. One explains why a person would want to change their lifestyle and to incorporate the Sunrider foods. It’s titled, The Wisdom to Change. The other explains how to make these changes with the Sunrider foods. It’s called, The Solution for Wellness. Both can be downloaded from my website.
One of the reasons the Sunrider foods are so helpful in balancing the body is that they follow the 5000-year-old philosophy of regeneration developed by the Chinese. The rest of this newsletter is devoted to explaining the ancient Philosophy and why it works.
The Ancient Chinese Philosophy of Regeneration
No matter what climate we live in or what our circumstances are, the body is always trying to balance itself. In order for the body to do that, it must “Eat the foods that nourish it and avoid the foods that harm it.” This nutritional approach, used successfully for over 5,000 years, is the heart of the Chinese “Philosophy of Regeneration.” It includes three basic principles:
1: The body heals itself with proper nutrition
2: The body is designed to obtain its nutrition from whole foods
3: Each individual must accept responsibility for his/her own health.
When you choose to adopt the Philosophy of Regeneration, you’ll nourish the entire body rather than just the parts that are weak or out of balance, because each system affects the others. And when the body is balanced, it cleanses naturally. There are three elements that Chinese regenerative philosophy is built upon: Nourish, Balance and Cleanse.
Proper nourishment is YIN; Cleansing is YANG; together they bring BALANCE (where all five major systems in the body work as a team). Following the Philosophy of Regeneration and the practice of Nourishing, Balancing and Cleansing on a regular/ongoing basis, anyone can return to balance and harmony. Let’s take a look at Why the Sunrider foods are the premier choice.
Hippocrates said: “Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food.” In keeping with Chinese tradition and the Philosophy of Regeneration, daily maintenance of the body with proper nutrition is the key to preventing illness. The body is designed to obtain its nutrition from whole foods. Whole foods are those in their original nutritional configuration where the naturally-occurring “family” of nutrients (the vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and enzymes) is still together as a team. In other words, the nutritional integrity is still intact. This is what is meant by a “whole food”.
Sunrider has taken this concept and developed modern processes to enable the manufacturing of “whole foods” in convenient, practical, highly concentrated forms. For example, the powdered NuPlus is a combination of many whole food herbs that are carefully prepared to preserve their nutritional integrity. The process is very precise with regard to temperature control and processing times to assure that the entire “family” of nutrients remain intact. This is a major difference between Sunrider foods and many other “health” foods. And, Sunrider uses no preservatives, additives, artificial colors, added sweeteners, animal by-products, fat or chemical isolates in its herbal nutritional products, nor does it do animal testing.
Sunrider products are based on the five elements (fire, earth, metal, water, and wood). The elements represent the five systems of the body: endocrine, digestive, respiratory, circulatory, and immune. you nourish and cleanse the five systems, your body will maintain balance. It is the most harmonious way to achieve optimal health.
Regular foods, today, are depleted of nutrients. Some may be okay for bulk but only if we add Sunrider foods for optimal nourishment so the body can regenerate itself. In a toxic world like we live in today, it is more important than ever to feed tSunrider Balance Charthe body the best nutritive foods possible.
Sunrider is also based on the philosophy of yin (nourish) and yang (cleanse). The five elements participate in the natural rule of yin and yang.
The five elements correspond to the five systems of the body:
1. Wood – Immune
2. Fire – Endocrine
3. Earth – Digestive
4. Metal – Respiratory
5. Water – Circulatory
The Philosophy of Regeneration promotes balance in the body through cleansing, nourishing and balancing the body’s major systems. Each of the five formulas listed below addresses one of the 5 elements and its corresponding system of the body.
Immune System – Alpha 20C
The Chinese yin-yang cycle begins as internal energy is gathered and brought to a focus. Martial artists refer to this phase of the cycle as concentrating, or focusing, the qi (chi). The name of this phase is Wood, referring metaphorically to suppleness, flexibility, or the ability to meet adversity without breaking.The body’s adversity is illness. The defense system-food-represents the element Wood. Food strengthens the body’s ability to meet illness without breaking. This is the property we call immunity.Signs of imbalance include: persistent infections, colds, flu, swollen glands, allergies, growths (like tumors, warts, and cysts), cancer, chronic fatigue, yeast, and cold sores
Endocrine System – Prime Again
In the second phase of the yin-yang cycle, the gathered energy is released, as when the archer, having aimed the arrow, now releases it. The name of this phase is Fire, referring metaphorically to the heated energy of action and activity. The systems that coordinate action and activity are the endocrine and nervous systems. The hormones of the two systems are the same, but the endocrine system releases them through the blood stream, while the nervous system releases them through the nerves. Endocrine system food (which is also, in a sense, a nervous-system food) represents the element Fire. It nourishes functions associated with activity, action, and performance. Signs of imbalance include: sore or weak muscles, premature grey, or hair loss, depression and/or mood swings, infertility, hypertension, PMS, weak sexual response, nervous emotional instability, menopausal problems, muscle and nerve problems such as MS, MD, Parkinson’s.
Digestive System – Assimilaid
The third phase of the yin-yang cycle begins when the energy of the second phase is spent. The third phase is a transition phase, where the body, having exhausted itself in the out-flowing of yang, now prepares for renewal through the inflowing of yin. This is the turning-point of the yin-yang cycle. It is called the element Earth. During the Earth part of the cycle exhaustion opens itself to the inflow of nourishment. In digestion, the body breaks down food, opening itself to some elements and closing itself to others. For this reason, the digestive system food is the food of the element Earth. The Chinese emphasize, however, that it refers not only to digestion of food, but to all the external influences and activities that an individual is required to assimilate or digest. Signs of imbalance include: stomach discomfort, diarrhea, slow digestion, constipation, vomiting, nausea, gas, indigestion, ulcers, bloating, hiatal hernia, Crohn’s Disease, colitis, and celiac disease.
Respiratory System – Conco
The fourth phase, which is called Metal, initiates the yin (inflow) part of the yin-yang cycle. In this phase, the body now absorbs the food it has digested-the environmental sources of life, which the Chinese call “external qi.” There are many aspects of external qi (including food and sunlight), but the Chinese represent them all with the powerful symbol of breath. Thus the food of the Metal phase is Respiratory-System Food, which feeds processes that connect us to the universal sources of life. Signs of imbalance include: tendency towards flu or colds, bronchitis, pneumonia, sinus headaches, chronic congestion, and asthma.
Circulatory system – Lifestream
During the fifth phase, which is called Water, the external energies absorbed during the Metal phase become transformed into biological energies and dispersed throughout the body. This transforming and dispersing occurs largely through the circulatory system, which is why the food of the Water phase is the circulatory system food. These renewed biological energies are the very energies that are now focused and concentrated in Wood, thus beginning the cycle again. Signs of imbalance include: high or low blood pressure, heart problems, cold hands and feet, easy bruising, slow healing, high cholesterol, poor eye-sight, and varicose veins.
Sunrider’s Quinary contains each of the above 5 formulas – a total of 48 concentrated herbs and extracts synergistically combined to feed each system of the body. Together they promote balance, synergy, harmony and communication among the 5 systems.
Although much of the Chinese five elements system appears to be symbolic, research has shown that the physiological processes affected by the foods are very much in line with their names. If you nourish and cleanse the five systems with the best whole food ingredients, your body will become balanced.
When used together, Sunrider products are designed to balance the body through regular gentle cleansing and quality nourishment. Calli and Fortune Delight beverages offer both cleansing and nourishment.
Calli Concentrated Herbal Beverage is not just a tea but a whole food beverage based on an ancient Chinese formula for cleansing the body, nourishing the liver and kidneys, and enhancing mental alertness. The ingredients of Calli tea are formulated to help rid the body of unwanted fat and cholesterol, accumulated toxins, heavy metals, drinking water impurities, drug and chemotherapy residues, pesticides, preservatives, bacteria and free radicals. Below are the ingredients in Calli Tea and their healing benefits as outlined in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
  • Camellia leaf (green tea) Camellia leaves contain polyphenols, which give the tea its antioxidant properties. Polyphenols stop free radical damage, neutralize enzymes essential for tumor growth, and de-activate cancer promoters. Green tea is clinically proven to protect against flu and cold viruses, and to speed recovery from viruses.
  • Perilla leaf Perilla leaves contain flavones that have potent antioxidant activity and help prevent free radical damage to cells and DNA. Flavones also bind to heavy metals and help remove them from the body.
  • Mori bark extract Mori (mulberry) bark extract is used to treat bronchitis, coughs, asthma, allergic rhinitis and edema. Also used to treat diabetes because it reduces absorption of sugar in the digestive tract.
  • Alisma root extract Alisma root is used to treat kidney stones, pelvic infections, nephritis, and other urinary tract infections. It is also used to reduce abdominal bloating, and to treat diabetes.
  • Imperate root Imperate root has antiviral, anti-bacterial, anti-arthritic and anti-inflammatory properties.

Fortune Delight is a modern breakthrough in herbal beverages. Cutting-edge technology is used to concentrate herbal extracts of green tea, chrysanthemum flower, jasmine and lalang grass r
oot to supply your body with powerful antioxidants and to support the natural cleansing process.
  • Camellia leaf (green tea) See above.
  • Chrysanthemum flower extract Chrysanthemum flower extract has a variety of medicinal properties, including anti-antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, blood-purifying, and liver-cleansing effects. It contains a compound called chloragenic acid which reduces the absorption of glucose from the GI tract, helping you feel full longer. The extract has been found to improve circulation, reduce bloating, and decrease bone loss. It promotes alertness, clarity, and calms the nerves. The flower contains a number of vitamins and minerals including ascorbic acid, beta carotene, calcium, fiber, iron, magnesium, niacin, potassium, riboflavin, and vitamin C.
  • Jasmine extract Jasmine extract helps improve digestion, remove toxins, increase metabolism and impr
    ove blood circulation. It reduces the amount of dietary fat and cholesterol absorbed by the body. Jasmine also has sedative properties and is known for its aphrodisiac effect. Combined with green tea its offers powerful tonic and energizing effects.
  • Lalang grass root extract Lalang grass root extract has antibiotic and fever-reducing properties. Used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to clear heat from the lung, stomach and urinary-bladder channels. Aids the respiratory system.
As you can see, Sunrider foods were designed to create a solid foundation for health using the ancient Philosophy of Regeneration and the principles of NOURISH, BALANCE & CLEANSE. In modern terms, we might use these maxims to describe the benefits of the Sunrider Program.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
“Good health is easier to maintain than regain.”
Stay with it! You’re on the right track with Sunrider!

Ya Mama! That's Right, I said "Ya Mama!"

I was barely eighteen years old in early 1982 when my mom earned a trip for a family of four to the Bahamas with Beeline Fashions.  It was totally awesome!  Rad!  It was at the Freeport Princess (Country Club and Towers) Grand Bahama Island.  Back in 1982, it was THE place to be.  Off the lobby was a nightclub and the music would blast through the hallway and I would walk by and listen in and wish I were old enough to step in through the door.  Keeping me back was a large bouncer type gentleman watching the entryway.  

I heard a song that was new to me. It was the first time I heard anything resembling the new trend of "rap music".  It was outer-space synthesizers and mama jokes, together in one hypnotic song.  

I'm telling you this story because this morning I just found the song online!   It's called Wuf Ticket, "Ya Mama" 12" (Prelude 1982)  

Here's the link to mp3 Ya Mama!

And here is where I found it:  WFMU's Beware of the Blog  Thank you WFMU's Beware of the Blog for sharing that bit of throw-back trip down memory lane!

Young Living Essential Oil Blends Descriptions


Young Living Oil Blends

• This information is presented for educational purposes only and is not intended as diagnosis, treatment, or prescription for any disease. The decision to use, or not to use, any of this information is the sole responsibility of the reader.

ABUNDANCE supports a positive sense of well-being, vitality and balance. Encourages feelings of physical and emotional abundance.

ACCEPTANCE evokes images of acceptance, overcoming procrastination, and conquering denial; promotes feelings of confidence. This oil awakens the inner being to our potential. Apply where you can smell it or over the liver. It is much gentler than release.

AWAKEN helps “awaken” to possibilities, to support many areas of spiritual awakening. It is a blend of blends, combining the qualities of Joy, Forgiveness, and White Angelica. My favorite place to apply Awaken is on my forehead and temples.

BELIEVE is the oil we pick when we are filled with doubt. It helps to create the environment that allows us to feel confident that we can do it!

BRAIN POWER restores mental alertness or wakefulness when experiencing fatigue. One of the best ways of using Brain Power is to put a drop on your finger and apply it to the roof of your mouth.

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT warms both physically as well as emotionally. It brings back images of joyful holiday get-togethers. An unusual way to use Christmas Spirit is to apply it to the soles of the feet and balance, similar to Valor. The feeling of warmth seems to travel up the legs and into the body and a feeling of contentment and gentle happiness is the result. This oil is also great to diffuse.

CITRUS FRESH is an awesome inexpensive oil blend to diffuse to put a happy fragrance into the air. It promotes feelings of creativity, joy, and a sense of well-being. It is also tasty in drinking water.

CLARITY helps to provide greater clarity of thought, and increases alertness. Forehead, temples, or back of the neck are all great places to apply this blend.

DRAGON TIME is great for providing balance during the time before and during one’s menstrual cycle. As well as helping to ease cramping, can be very beneficial for relaxation. Ankle bones, as well as on location of tension are good application sites.

DREAM CATCHER is great before bed to “catch” that dream, and in a bigger view, it helps to define goals and change dreams into achievements. Try a drop or two on your pillow.

ENDOFLEX helps to create balance in the endocrine system. This blend is usually most beneficial for hormonal type headaches and hot flashes. It can be applied over the thyroid, adrenals and ankle bones.

EN-R-GEE provides support for the adrenals. It may be very beneficial during times of fatigue. Supports feelings of alertness and vitality in the body.

ENVISION has an aroma that elicits images of emotional fortitude, renewed faith in the future, and sharpened intuition. Apply at center of the forehead.

FORGIVENESS helps create the emotions necessary to forgive yourself and others. This very relaxing blend can be applied where you can smell it, for example, using it like a perfume or aftercare, or across the forehead. Some like to apply Forgiveness on the navel or solar plexus.

GATHERING is used to “gather” what we need to grow; to focus. Its formula is similar to the holy anointing oil recipe given to Moses. This blend is very strong and may be best used after one feels more balanced. Apply to the temples and neck.

GENTLE BABY is a great blend for relaxation, and may be preferred by younger children and men over Peace and Calming. Very good for sleep. May be best applied where one can smell it as one relaxes (such as forearms). It is also fabulous for a nighttime back rub. It is gentle enough to use on the youngest of children or the most sensitive of adults. It may help to provide security to assist in healing issues of very early childhood.

GRATITUDE may help create a feeling of gratitude, a very empowering emotion. Sometimes we may need a little help when it seems like there is nothing to be grateful for.

GROUNDING is a scent that inspires rational and logical thinking when dealing with adverse circumstances. It may help bring someone back to earth, and help them feel more connected. Apply to the back of the neck or on the bottom of the feet.

HARMONY is a gentle blend of many oils that elicits the sensation of well- being, balance, and happiness. It can be used to balance polarity as well.

HIGHEST POTENTIAL is an uplifting blend that helps you gather your possibilities and awaken your desire to “the sky is the limit.”

HOPE helps bring hope to “hopeless” situations. A great place to apply Hope is on the outer edges of the ears.

HUMILITY is a beautiful blend that includes rose and frankincense and helps create a feeling of strong spiritual connection. Apply humility to your hands and inhale, or massage into your temples.

INNER CHILD is a truly joyful blend. The citrus in this blend brings joy to the heart. May help regain a sense of identity where one was lost. Apply around the navel.

INSPIRATION is great for meditation. Apply to crown, forehead, and temples.

JOY is one of my favorites. It helps to bring a feeling of self-love and joy to the heart. Revives feelings of self-confidence. Apply as a perfume or over the heart. It is great to diffuse.

LIVE WITH PASSION is a unique aroma that inspires enthusiasm and passion for life and a sense of accomplishment.

MAGNIFY YOUR PURPOSE helps you see beyond your current situation and discover a higher expression of yourself.

MOTIVATION helps to get you up and moving!

PAN AWAY is not just for physical discomfort. Use over ear points, or on your heart for emotional pain.

PEACE & CALMING was designed for hyperactive children and adults. It is awesome diffused or applied where you can smell it. It gently soothes away tension and can bring a state of calm.

PRESENT TIME assists in getting you out of the past and into the now. You can only progress when you are free from dwelling excessively in the past or worrying about the future. This beautiful fragrance makes a great perfume.

RELEASE helps release negative emotion and anger. Apply it over the liver or on liver points. It contains oils that support the physical liver, too.

SACRED MOUNTAIN has a strong clean fragrance that brings about a feeling of strength, courage and empowerment as well as spiritual connection. It makes a great men’s cologne.

SARA helps to heal sexual or ritual abuse issues. Apply around the navel or chest.

SENSATION is a beautiful sensual fragrance that may also help one feel loved and desired.

SURRENDER is extremely relaxing; great for sleep and may help type A personalities loosen up a bit.

3 WISE MEN is both a meditation oil and great for helping to release negative emotion from the DNA. It brings a sense of grounding and a feeling of being uplifted or supported while deep-seated trauma is being released.

TRANSFORMATION reaches into the deepest recesses of memory to empower and uphold the changes you want to make in your belief system.

TRAUMA LIFE helps to release trauma from a cellular level, both physical as well as emotional. The oil evokes the sensation of being released from feelings of anger, fear, and restlessness.

VALOR is very important in assisting all the oils and supplements to work better. It helps promote balanced energies in the body; encourages feelings of confidence, courage, and self esteem. Apply to the bottoms of the feet and the shoulders.

WHITE ANGELICA is applied to the crown and shoulders to increase the electrical field around the body and provide a sense of protection. It creates wholeness and neutralizes negative energy. Can also be worn as a perfume.

Nature Walks Help Your Brain

Nature Walks Help Your Brain
So many people find that the Sunrider foods make their brain clearer or in the words of many, "the fog just lifted".  Well, here is another tip.  Sort of well known already within us but it is nice to see it studied.
As published in the Washington Post, a bevy of recent studies have added to a growing literature on the mental and physical benefits of spending time outdoors.  That includes recent research showing that short micro-breaks spent looking at a nature scene have a rejuvenating effect on the brain -- boosting levels of attention -- and also that kids who attend schools featuring more greenery fare better on cognitive tests.
Another recent study, a cognitive neuroscience study, meaning not only that benefits from a nature experience were captured in an experiment, but also that their apparent neural signature was observed through brain scans.
The paper, by Stanford's Gregory Bratman and several colleagues from the Untied States and Sweden, was published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.  In it, 38 individuals who lived in urban areas, and who had "no history of mental disorder," were divided into two groups -- and asked to take a walk. 
Half waked for 90 minutes through a natural area near the Stanford campus.  The other half walked along a very busy road in downtown Palo Alto, California (along El Camino real, for those who know the area).  Before and also after the walk, the participants answered a questionnaire designed to measure their tendency toward "rumination," a pattern of often negative, inward-directed thinking and questioning that has bee tied to an increased risk of depression, and that is assessed with questionnaire items like "My attention is often focused on aspects of myself I wish I'd stop thinking about," and "I spend a great deal of time thinking back over my embarrassing or disappointing moments."  Finally, both before and after the walk, the participants had their brains scanned.
The result was that individuals who took the 90-minute nature walk showed a decrease in rumination -- they actually answered the questionnaire differently, just a short period of time later.  And their brain activity also showed a change consistent with this result.  In particularly, the scans showed decreased activity in the subgenual prefrontal cortex, the region of interest.
So a word of advice?  Eat healthy and take a hike!
