Eating for Health and Wellbeing

Tailor your diet to suit you

The points on the previous pages are very basic rules which could be followed by everyone to their advantage. However, if you do get ill, you will need to find out what is particularly required in your case.

If in addition your gut is not right, you must not ignore it. You may for example have a gluten or other allergy/intolerance which is contributing to your illness. It can be difficult to find a doctor who can carry out an allergy test and the process can often take a long time. Doctors simply look for allergies that show up in blood tests, but complementary therapists with training in Bioresonance can quickly and easily check not only for allergies but also for sensitivities and intolerances which don’t show in blood tests, but do cause many uncomfortable symptoms.

Healthy Diet and Happiness

A healthy diet should not make you miserable – if it is truly healthy, and the diet that your body requires, it will make you feel good, which in turn will make you determined to stick to it. You can have fun inventing healthy ways of producing old favourites – use oatcakes with 85% dark chocolate (organic) to replace chocolate biscuits; have egg or tuna mixed with yogurt, hummus, basil and seasoning in place of mayonnaise; cakes and biscuits made with ground almonds and either olive oil or no fat; use lemon juice in place of vinegar in salad dressings. Or have a handful of nuts and sunflower seeds for snacks.

Healthy Lifestyle choice

A good diet is a large step in the direction of a healthy immune system but should be further helped by a choice of lifestyle which includes regular exercise, a careful avoidance of harmful substances in cleaning and cosmetic products, caution to reduce the amount of e-smog in your body, and nurturing your spirit with creative activities, good social relationships and relaxation or meditation. If you make this a holistic project with health and happiness as your aim, you can only increase the feelings of well-being and joy in your life!

  • ‘Thank you so much for sending this article to me – I have just read it a second time and looked up more of the references which are all very useful. You must have done an immense amount of work to get it all together. I don’t have any chemistry in my background and have just been reading the article on Cholesterol published in 2019 on line; I did get to the end but need to look up some terminology.

    I liked the way you had presented the information – it is all so clear and easy to follow the many, useful links. I shall try and get the booklet on cholesterol which you mention. I loved the illustrations too.’
