52 Basic Optimal Health Principles Feeding and nourishing your body’s systemsCleansing and removing toxins from your body
6Connecting The Body Systems 1. Colon2. Small Intestines3. Liver4. Lymphatic System5. Circulatory System
7The Digestive SystemWhere the nutrients & many toxins are absorbed in our bodiesLearn how the Digestive System works
8Digestion The process by which food and drink are broken down so the body can build cells and provide energyStep OneFeeding and Nourishing the Body SystemsWe chew the food, digestion starts in the mouth.As we chew the food, the body produces enzymes to assist in the digestion process.
9DigestionStep TwoFood moves down into the stomach where further digestion occursThe stomach is the only acidic organ in the bodyThe stomach breaks the food down & turns it into an isotonic liquid-state called CHYME
10DigestionStep ThreeThis chyme moves down into the small intestine, for further digestion and absorption.The small intestine is about 21 ft. long & inches in diameterThe small intestine is where most of the nutrient absorption takes place
11AbsorptionInside the small intestine are thousands of finger-like structures called VILLI, that increase the surface area for nutrient absorption.This extended surface area add up to about 200 square meters (about the surface area of a tennis court).
12Folds In Small Intestine VilliInner lining, where absorption occursOuter layer51212
13Absorption Distribution of Nutrients and Toxins Every thing that is absorbed through the VILLI (nutrients, medications, chemicals & toxins) enters the blood stream and lymphatics, and is then carried & distributed throughout the body.
14The unused food passes into the large intestine (colon) DigestionStep FourThe unused food passes into the large intestine (colon)The colon should eliminate the unused foods and toxins from our bodies 2 to 3 times each day, and reabsorb the water that is released in digestive juices.Did you know? The large intestine is about 5 ft. long and 2.5 inches in diameter
15Our Digestive Tract is subjected to toxins “AUTOINTOXICATION” The production of toxic chemicals produced by the colon bacteria, and the continuous diffusion of these toxins into the colon and ultimately the blood stream, may result in possible damage to the colon as well as distant sites in the body.
16THE COLONThe Western diet is full of white flour, meat, milk, sugar and processed and “fast” foods.As a result, many people are exposed to waste build up in their colons contributing to “autointoxication”.
17How Our Body Handles Toxins Blood carries toxins to the liver...The liver filters blood coming from the digestive tract.Excessive years of toxic exposure may impair the function and efficiency of the liver.If the liver becomes impaired, the toxin produced by “autointoxication” may also affect the lymphatic system.
18Lymphatic System Two Main Functions: Protects us from infection (viruses, bacteria, fungi) and tumorsCleans up waste products
19Lymphatic SystemRuns along side of the circulatory system. It has no pump: fluid is moved passively during muscle contraction.
20Lymphatic SystemWhen functioning correctly, the lymphatic system will dump its waste products into the colon where it is excreted.However, when the colon and liver are not working to full capacity, the lymphatic system may release wastes into the bloodstream where it may settle into organs and tissues.
21Circulatory SystemThe transport system for your blood (heart, arteries, veins and capillaries).Transport nutrients from intestinal absorption and carries oxygen from lungs to all cells and tissues of the body.Brings wastes from all cells and tissues to the kidneys for excretion.
22Did You Know?All of your body systems must be functioning properly to achieve optimal health.Compromise any of our body’s systems and we:Don’t function properlyDon’t feel wellCompromise our capacity for optimal health
23What is Wrong with the Current Western Diet? Wrong Foods - excessive fats, sugars, processed;NOT enough: fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, berries, nuts, plant proteinsWrong Amounts - portions are often 3-4 times the normal sizeWrong Time - eating large meals at dinner, just before sleep, skipping breakfasts, rushing lunch, etc.2323
24Foods / Ingredients and Their Effect on the Body TYPICAL WESTERN DIETFoods / Ingredients and Their Effect on the BodyDonutWhite Flour - When mixed with water makes paste. Donuts have little to no fiber and have large amounts of sugar.Sugars - Destroy B-Vitamins. B-Vitamins feed our nervous system and help keep us calm. Also, excess sugars can bind to proteins, cell membranes and even DNA significantly impairing function.Hydrogenated Oils -The food industry uses this process to prolong the shelf life of foods. This “industrial” fat or hydrogenated oil contributes to heart disease, inflammation and impairs cell function.CoffeeCoffee provides excess caffeine, may destroy friendly bacteria, and is nutrient depleted.
25Foods / Ingredients and Their Effect on the Body TYPICAL WESTERN DIETFoods / Ingredients and Their Effect on the BodyCheese BurgerMore white flour which makes paste. Processed cheese is made with hydrogenated oils and high in saturated fat and salt. Ground beef- high in saturated fat, may contain antibiotics and other chemicals.French FriesPotatoes fried in more hydrogenated oil, high in salt, low in nutrients. White potatoes rapidly raise blood sugar levels.Cola, SodasPhosphoric acid in soda’s can leach out the calcium in our bodies. High in sugars, devoid of nutrients.
26Foods / Ingredients and Their Effect on the Body TYPICAL WESTERN DIETFoods / Ingredients and Their Effect on the BodyCanned FoodsLoaded with salt, may contain preservatives, less nutritious than fresh or frozen foods. Use canned foods mostly for emergencies (power failures, natural disasters, etc.).Ice CreamHigh in saturated fat, sugar. May contain many chemicals. Eat sparingly and in small amounts.CookiesMore white flour, hydrogenated oil and sugar.Pasteurized MilkCalcium from milk is not easily absorbed. Whole milk is high in saturated fat. Excess dairy products may promote inflammation.
27What To Avoid Or LimitLimit animal protein, high in saturated fatLimit refined carbohydrates, sodas, saturated and trans fats, etc.
29Eat RightFRESH FRUITSFruit is high in fiber, natural sugars, water and loaded with antioxidants like vitamin C and bioflavonoids.Fiber - Devoid in many processed foods, drinks, etc. Important for good bowel function, absorption of toxins, maintaining healthy cholesterol levels, etc.Natural sugars - The immediate energy source.Water - We are 70% water and we need to continuously hydrate our bodies.Antioxidant/Bioflavonoids - Plant compounds that have many beneficial properties beyond antioxidation.
30High in antioxidants, phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals and fiber. Eat RightFRESH VEGETABLESHigh in antioxidants, phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals and fiber.Antioxidants / phytochemicals - provide numerous health benefits not abundant in processed or fast foods.Dark green vegetables - great source of calcium, vitamins and minerals.No fat / full of fiber - cultures who consume large amounts of raw vegetables have healthy and long life spans.

35To Promote Nourishing and Cleansing our Body Systems HEALTHY EATINGTo Promote Nourishing and Cleansing our Body SystemsChoose healthy, unprocessed foods At every meal eat a balance of:Carbohydrates: complex, unrefined carbohydrates with high fiber contentProteins: more plant proteins, less animal proteinsFats: “healthy fats”, mono-unsaturated, omega-3 fatty acidsConsume smaller portions, pay attention to portion size.Eat more frequently, 4-6 healthy snacks or meals per day, do not skip meals.Consume daily plenty of fresh fruits, raw and steamed vegetables, whole grains, nuts and berries.3535
36Healthy Eating Tips Do not eat when tired or emotionally upset. Create a relaxed environment for eating.Sit quietly, chew thoroughly.Focus on enjoying your meal.Do not drink with your meals—drink most of your liquids between meals.
37What is the Solution... Feed and adequately nourish your body systems 2. Cleanse and remove toxins from the body
38Why We Need Nutritional Supplementation Based on the National Health and Nutrition Education Survey (NHANES-joint collaboration of USDA and the Center for Disease Control), in :80% of American rated their overall diet as average or belowOnly 65% regularly had fruits available in their homesOnly 55% regularly had dark green vegetables available in their homes86% regularly had salty snacks and soft drinks available in their homes
39What is Optimal HealthTo live life with robust vitality, peak level of functioning.To enjoy physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health daily.To live free of chronic, degenerative and age-related challenges.
40Nutritional Support for Everyone Foundations of Optimal Health RegimenMultivitamins & MultimineralsOmega-3OPC-3® (bioflavonoids)
41What Is Isotonic Nutritional Supplementation “iso” = same and “tonic” = pressure or toneSame fluid pressure as in tears, plasma, lymph and other body fluidsIsotonic nutritional supplementation comes in a powder form and when mixed with the appropriate amount of water becomes an isotonic formulation
42Isotonic Nutritional Supplementation When a supplement is taken already in isotonic form and before meals:The stomach does not have to digest it, secrete and churn stomach acidsThe waiting time in the stomach, known as gastric emptying time is significantly reduced, delivering the nutrients to the site of absorption in minutes rather than hoursThe nutrients are delivered in a higher concentration allowing for a more efficient absorption in the small intestineAll of these factors allow for more efficient and enhanced delivery of nutrients into the small intestine where most absorption takes place.
43In Addition To The Physiologic Advantages Of Isotonic Delivery Isotonix® Supplements:Do not require fillers or binders, since it comes in powder form to be mixed with a specified amount of waterEasy to swallow since it becomes a liquid formulation-“drink your nutrients”You can take several different isotonic supplements together, in one glass, first thing in the morning- as a “new breakfast juice”Maximize delivery and availability of all the nutrients you consume, so none remain in the large intestine as undigested pills or tablets- often seen on an x-ray (in the case of calcium tablets)
44Who Would Benefit From Isotonic Nutritional Supplementation Everyone and Especially…Elderly people - who may hate or have difficulty swallowing numerous pillsWhen digestion is impaired or less efficientThose with digestive challenges such as post operative gastric by-pass clientsAbsorption challengesChildren- who would rather drink a berry/fruity solution rather than gulp down their vitamin pills
45Isotonic Multivitamins & Multi-Minerals 100% of essential vitamins needed for proper nutritional balanceIsotonic delivery; efficient and complete absorptionGreat tastingEasy to take
46Omega III – Fish Oils EPA DHA Healthy fish oil/fatty acid An omega 3 supplement must provide adequate amounts of purified EPA & DHAEPAHealthy fish oil/fatty acidObtained by eating wild salmon (better than farm raised), mackerel, sardines and herringDHAAnother healthy fish oil/fatty acid,Primary structural Omega 3 found in the brain and retinaObtain from a diet of fatty fishThe average American's daily intake of DHA is estimated to be 100 mg lower than it was about 50 years agoDeficiency may lead to severe mood imbalance
47Health Benefits of Omega-III Fish Oil Promotes overall cardiovascular health:Helps maintain normal cholesterol levelsHelps maintain blood pressure levelsHelps maintain normal blood flowHelps maintain normal triglyceride levels in the bloodHelps maintain healthy levels of C-reactive proteinPromotes a healthy complexionHelps enhance mood
