Can food enlighten...? It can definately heal!    Welcome to the Oct
2009 Newsletter.

It’s been three years since we started the ‘Cinema for the Soul’ in Newcastle and for me, the greatest personal transformation I have had from the movies over the years is that food has the power to heal the body.

Have you ever noticed the first 4 letters in the word Health? It’s Heal…!

One particular movie that comes to mind is Raw for 30 days (check it out online). In this movie they take approx 20 diabetics away on retreat for 30 days and they change their lifestyle, but, more importantly they change their diet, with extraordinary results. Massive results for even Type 1 diabetics. One Type 1 Diabetic went within 30 days to taking no insulin at all, highly inspirational.

You might say, so how does that have any impact on me, I don’t have diabetes. Well, if food can heal Diabetes, then what could it do for you, if you are healthy to start with?

So it got me thinking, the core message in a number of movies, is the power of alkaline-based foods. WE ARE NOT JUST WHAT WE EAT, we are also what we drink. So what if we were to start drinking Alkaline water? I don’t know about you, but preparing Raw Food three times per day, when I live by myself seemed like a real pain in the butt.

So I started doing some research on the net, and to my surprise came up with some pretty extraordinary claims around the power of healing - from drinking alkaline water. I was so inspired to try it for myself, so I did!

What I found was drinking alkaline water for just one day had an incredible cleansing effect which gave me a lightness and energy. After the first week I definitely noticed my digestion had improved and I had a lot more energy as a result of my system being more balanced. I was also more rested after a perfect night’s sleep.

I have since spoken to a Bio-Chemist/Naturopath who told me he gets clients with a chronic health issue to drink Alkaline water for two weeks in order to shift all the heavy toxins, so the body can start to heal.

I also came across a Doctor by the name of Dr Robert Young who claims that if your pH drops to 6.9 you would go into cardiac arrest. WOW!

Due to the fact that a good quality Alkaline water is quite rare, I have sourced my water from a reputable vendor interstate.  If there is anybody from the Newcastle area who would like to try some send me an email as I am planning on getting some more in the next week or so, and I would be happy to get some for you to try as well.

The research continues………
