Lower your Cholesterol Naturally – A List of foods

It is vital to understand why cholesterol can be dangerous before looking at a list of foods that lower it – after all, wouldn’t you rather know HOW we know which foods help lower cholesterol, than just a long list of ingredients?

High cholesterol is not dangerous by itself – only in a specific condition it becomes harmful; by understanding this, you can get to the root of the issue – and resolve it.

The condition is when free radicals come in contact with LDL cholesterol – causing the LDL cholesterol to oxidize.  Free radicals are unstable atoms – which bond with any nearby cell’s atom – causing the cell it bonded with, to become a free radical itself – making this a chain reaction.

When LDL cholesterol is oxidized, it stimulates white blood cells which capture any foreign cells and particles in the blood – this causes foam cells to form – which are designed to clean out the area; a toxic effect is then created causing inflammation and clotting processes to activate within the artery walls – hence slowly increasing blood pressure (because of plague built up in the arteries) and reducing blood circulation (which can cause stroke or heart attack).

So, how do you lower cholesterol with just a list of foods?

The key is to stop free radical damage in the body – to disarm free radicals, you need antioxidants; not just any antioxidant – it must be FAT SOLUABLE. Taking a 1000mg of vitamin C (an antioxidant) will not help your cholesterol because Vitamin C is a water soluble antioxidant, not a fat soluble one which can stabilize oxidized cells (cells are made from lipids, which are fats).

The fat soluble antioxidants are as follows; along with the list of foods that have the highest concentrations of each:

–  Astaxanthin (pink stuff found in Salmon – better taken in supplement form)

–  Zeaxanthin(found in Kale, Chard, Spinach – best in raw form)

–  Vitamin E(Asparagus, Avocado, Egg, Milk, Nuts, Spinach, Olive oil)

–  Beta-Carotene(Peppers, Lettuce, Kale, Spinach)

–  Coenzyme Q10(Red meats – liver, heart – cooking them too much can reduce the amount)

– Vitamin B6 – Niacin is a water soluable vitamin, but thanks to its flushing side effect, it is one of the most powerful supplements that can be taken to instantly lower cholesterol.

Is a list of foods really enough to lower cholesterol and improve your health dramatically? What about the damage already caused?

Taking antioxidant rich foods is powerful if you completely transform your diet and increase your intake of the above foods. However, to tackle this issue with full force you MUST do other things – like taking a food supplement.

Adding an antioxidant supplement to your diet will allow you to eat more concentrations of the antioxidants you need to actually reverse the damage already caused – yes, your body is powerful, and eating the right foods will get you a long way, but it may not be enough to reverse the damage already caused by free radicals – for that, you need an exercise program where you exercise 3-4 times a week; and at least for 30 minutes constantly where you are out of breath – what this does is push the blood to your extremities and increase general circulation, allowing faster and more than usual detox of the body, including plague build up.

One must understand that combining exercise with proper super-antioxidant supplementation is important to get the necessary benefits.

What causes Cancer, and how to heal or prevent it?

It is shocking how many people STILL do not know what causes cancer – and that a cure for it exists! (Only that we are not allowed to call it a cure – since it is not a patented drug made by the big pharmacy companies).

Cancer is simply caused by a cell becoming damaged and mutated by a free radical – a free radical is an atom missing an electron; this means it needs to steal another atom’s electron in order to become stable. This process can damage the actual DNA within healthy cells – so new cells that are created from the damaged cells are not healthy – if they multiply to a large number, it drains the body’s resources – which, if continued, may lead to death.

One must understand that there are hundreds of types of cancer – this is because DNA can be damaged in many types of ways and the mutated cells multiply further. What is worse, is that the already mutated cells, can also get further damaged/mutated and create a whole new type of cancer!

So, how do I heal myself from cancer? (Your side of the coin – whilst your doctor helps you on his side)

Since free radicals are the ones that end up mutating the cell’s DNA – we have to target them by firstly adding super anti-oxidants into our system on a daily basis. The most powerful super-antioxidants are Astaxanthin and Zeaxanthin in softgel form – (not dry capsules with powder in them). A good supplier for Astaxanthin is a company called Solgar – both available in EU and USA. These anti-oxidants will help protect cells and DNA from all kinds of problems.

People who have started Chemotherapy will also benefit from taking these supplements as Chemo is designed to destroy cancer and the body – its pure radiation and kills everything in its path – we have to protect our bodies long enough, until the cancer is gone – one step is taking super anti-oxidants in supplement form – the next is, if you are doing chemo, or about to start – then start eating as much plain sugar foods you can eat, and increase the padding internally of your body – this will make you gain weight as you will be eating junk food, but it will give a protection layer of fat. 

Most people start eating extra healthy, and cook vegetables and all kinds of stuff – this is not the right way and will make things worse – because the body needs a lot of energy and digestion power to digest vegetables and meat, and during radiation therapy, the digestion process will start breaking down, and the best way to provide any energy and padding into the body is via eating simple carbs, sugars and fat – it sounds very crazy, but this is an approach used by many doctors who have been successful in helping patients recover from cancer.


Fast Weight Loss Tips: 3 Powerful Techniques

Weight Loss Tips

Being overweight may reveal that a person is not in balance – meaning that there is an imbalance somewhere within the mind body and spirit.

If you are overweight, you need to know the deeper rooted issues that need to be resolved – it is not as simple as eating less and exercising more. Although it is true that if you eat less and exercise more, you will lose weight; but what is the point if you go back to your old habits and regain the weight; as this is not tackling the source of the problem.

To find the deeper issue is to look at your life as it is right now. There is no way you will be overweight when everything in your life (to an extent) is balanced and stable. – Answer the following questions:

– Are you having difficultly letting go of a painful memory or a traumatic event?

– Are you having any stability issues? Financial problems?

– Are there any emotional issues? How are your relationships with friends and family?

These three questions will help you locate the core problem of the imbalance – If you haven’t already read it, I refer you to my article ‘How to be Happy – 7 Most powerful ways‘ – the questions I asked above, relate to the first 3 Chakra’s in the human body – they target on finding imbalances within each chakra – to find the deeper rooted reasons of your weight issues. Once you know the deeper rooted problems,  you can face them and overcome them – rather than trying to fight something you cant even target (because you don’t know the root of the problem).

You are eating to “Fill” holes in your life…

love, family, security

Did you know that when you overeat – you are unconsiously trying to “fill” gaps in your chakra’s – in other words, gaps in your life; a terrible memory (root chakra) that needs to be let go of, a bad habit (root chakra), relationship problems(heart chakra), family(heart), financial security (sex chakra) etc – I am not saying that you are consiously aware of these issues, but they are there, waiting to be “digested”.

This article is intended to encourage people with weight problems using a holistic approach – look at all areas in your life when looking at the subject of weight loss, rather than what you eat and how much your process it (exercise).

How to be Happy – 7 Most powerful ways!

The question of how to live life to the fullest, or how to be happy has been around since the beginning of time; but is there really an answer to such a question? or a universal method that can be applied to every single community?


Its called the Seven Congregations (In Christianity), Seven Heavens (In Islam),  Seven Chakras (In Hinduism) and is present in most major religions and spiritual guidance books; oh and if your one of the sceptical types (or just not a New Age’r) – think of this as an allegory – a system the ancients built to transform lives.

Please note that this is a rough outline of the chakra system – so that you understand the basics before progressing to reading about them in more detail and how to overcome problems within each.

There are seven energy centers (or Chakras) in the human body; each of them having unique attributes associated to them (emotions, reproduction etc). Below is an image of the chakra system within the body; the symbols within the colours is Sanskrit writing for the name of each chakra.


The chakra system generally works from the bottom upwards; just like you build a house from the foundation upwards.

Root Chakra

The root chakra is the lowest chakra (red in image above) and is the only chakra pointing backwards, to your past.

The root chakra MUST be functioning with balance before you can move to the next chakra (become financially free, find love, keep promises); if not, like a building with no foundation, your chakra system will colapse which in physical terms is a nervous breakdown.

The purpose of this chakra is getting rid of toxins in the body; this includes both physical and mental toxins.

An example of a mental toxin is a belief system which is holding you back from getting where you want to go; a habit which is preventing you from reaching your goals.

An example of physical toxins is the waste you excrete when you go to the bathroom everyday; so if your constipated, this also shows that your “holding on” and not letting go of things physically and mentally. Can you imagine  the level of toxic waste build-up if you have not exercised and balanced this chakra? Think painful childhood memories? Painful school memories?

How to strengthen and balance the Root Chakra?

There are many ways to strengthen the root chakra. Some are:

– Forgiving and forgetting: Forgive the people in your past, and forget; expel them from your body. Any painful memories must be let go of; bad habits must be disposed.

– Physical: Do root chakra yoga asanas. This is basically yoga for the root chakra, ask your yoga instructor and he/she should be able to guide you. OR if you want a good set of Yoga Asana’s which you can view online, you can get the video from here. This video for the root chakra is highly recommended and does not exist anywhere else. This works similar to the effect you get when you run for a while, and your mood elevates and you become happier; except, its more targeted.

– Detox: Throw away all the things that you have been holding on to for years but hardly use; go to your drawers and throw away anything that you have not used in the past 30 days.

Binaural Beats – Sound frequencies that tune into the right wavelength to stimulate the root chakra. This can be used for all the 7 chakras – Each chakra has a different frequency that stimulates it to become active.

Sex Chakra

The Sex chakra is located just 2 inches below your belly button; it is the chakra responsible for reproduction.

This not only includes sexual reproduction, but also reproducing wealth, health, anything you want! It is associated with creativity, food, expression, addictions and is often referred to as the center of self expression and joy.

This chakra is the chakra that “turns you on” speaking sexually and otherwise; therefore it is deeply concerned with our relationships to others, our motivation for our relationships and how much joy we bring to them.

It also has a strong connection with money; being able to become financially independent.

A weak sex chakra leads to physical manifestations of sexual impotence, bladder problems, diseases of the small intestine and lower back pain.

How to strengthen the Sex Chakra?

To strengthen the Sex chakra you can:

– Strengthen any chakras below; in this case, the root chakra (Note: this applies to all chakra’s; if you want to strengthen a chakra, work on strengthening all the chakra’s below it first)

– Become financially independent: This is important – before you can progress further, your ability to reproduce money must be strong, its that simple!

– Yoga Asanas for Sex Chakra – see www.meditation-mantra.org

Solar Plexus

The third chakra is often called the Solar Plexus; it is responsible for keeping what you have produced in the sex chakra (second chakra); so you produce money in the second chakra and learn to keep it in the third chakra. You keep your promises, your will, in the third chakra.

Self esteem is also held here, as well as beauty, health and wealth; anything you produce.

How to strengthen the Solar Plexus?

Signs of weak solar plexus (or third chakra) is low self esteem, not being able to keep promises, no self discipline, issues with your physical body – Naturally the way to strengthen this would be to target all the chakra’s lower than the solar plexus chakra, make them solid, and then:

– Practice increasing your will power: Write down 5-7 things that you must do that day but have been ignoring for some time now – this could be anything from cleaning out the wardrobe, buying a new vacuum cleaner etc – and then, DO THEM! Practice this regularly – This will increase your will power and strengthen your third chakra.

– Doing yoga asanas targeted for the third chakra are also important; search YouTube.com or go to www.meditation-mantra.org to get a series of all the chakra videos.

Heart Chakra

The heart chakra is ruled by emotions; love, hate, jealousy, life purpose, higher purpose, fulfilment etc. If the lower 3 chakra’s have been mastered, energy seeps into the fourth chakra; this is where you can have “mid-life crisis” and seek for meaning. This is not some hocus pocus crap; it is easily applied in practice – Bill Gates is a great example; He left Harvard university (root chakra) to realize his dream of creating (second chakra) DOS and reproducing it to every IBM computer in the world – He again disposed DOS (root chakra) to move onto windows further making billions and holding onto them (third chakra); then he created a charity foundation (heart chakra – to seek higher purpose and fulfillment from a deeper sense of love).

How can you strengthen the heart chakra?

– Water (master) all the chakra’s below to strengthen the heart chakra

– Carry out Yoga Asana’s for the heart chakra found at www.meditation-mantra.org – you can find sample videos on youtube.com under the user-name “yogomeditation”.

Throat Chakra

If we continue our example of Bill Gates – after he fulfils his fourth chakra, he will begin his journey for the 5th chakra – the knowledge chakra.

The knowledge chakra comes to life when you have everything in your life that you wanted – reason why wealthy people start taking dance classes, extra courses into something “different”, visiting unusual destinations, art classes, singing lessons – anything to seek higher purpose and meaning (but more developed than the heart chakra).

How can you strengthen the Throat chakra?

– Water (master) all chakra’s under the throat chakra

– Carry out Yoga Asana’s for the Throat Chakra found at www.meditation-mantra.org – you can find sample videos of these vidoes on youtube.com under the user-name “yogameditation”.

Third Eye

The sixth chakra is the Third eye Chakra – where you gain divine wisdom. Your ability to solve the most complex problems will become as simple as pressing a button. Many spiritual leaders have written countless books on the underlying methods of the universe; but this is useless to most people as you would need your first 5 chakra’s mastered before you would have a “thirst” for fulfilling this chakra.

Third eye represents non-judgement – Between right or wrong, light and day, ugly and beautiful, fat and thin etc. You will be able to see past and future as one, giving you the ability to see patterns and solve complex problems.

How can you strengthen the Third Eye?

Strengthen all chakra’s below the Third Eye Chakra

– Meditation and focus on the third eye point

Crown Chakra

This is the only chakra which is actually outside the body, over the head – where do you think they got the Halo from?

There is nothing else to say about the crown chakra other than it is the chakra that connects you with the universe – as the Taoists say, to make your “light body”. This is pure enlightenment and where you have extraordinary abilities.

There are a few ways to strengthen the crown chakra like fulfilling all chakra’s below it, and meditation.

YES, but how do I apply this to my life?

Apply this to your life starting from the root chakra of disposing toxins and all the way up to the 7th – take it step by step. It is possible that some parts of some of your chakra’s are already developed to a certain extent, however there could be some weaknesses to them that might need strengthening in order to move your life forward – living your life to the fullest!

All chakras not only speak of healing in a spiritual sense, but also a physical sense. Physical illnesses are related to chakra imbalances that need correcting – heart disease with the heart chakra, sexual dysfunction with the second chakra – fulfill and learn to master them, and master your life!

It is also important to note that mastering your chakras creates rising levels of energy (chi/Parana) which can damage the nerves in your body and possibly kill you – this can easily be avoided by preparing the body for this kind of energy – by practicing chi kung (an ancient Chinese art)  to the point of excruciating pain.
