To maintain optimal health and prevent disease the best diet from my research and experience(in my own healing), is as close to a pure vegetarian diet( vegan diet) as possible. . . No meat or dairy would be the basis for this, with emphasis on very low levels of sodium, no caffeine, no saturated fats or hydrogenated fats and little if any white sugar. . . Preferably no processed foods (packaged foods with additives and lacking in their original form (chemistry) where the nutrients are denatured from cooking them at high temperatures, destroying their nutritional value. I personally eat a diet mostly of raw vegetables and fruits, with some cooked beans, some whole grain bread on occasion and currently small amounts of salmon. . . though I realize this is not a horse’s diet with the fish. . . I’m striving to get back to that, which I actually maintained for a lengthy period of time. Lots of pure water is a must and essential fatty acids, which if fish isn’t eaten, can come from borage, primrose and flax seed oil supplementation. Olive oil is an important component of this diet, a mono-saturated oil. . . it acts in lowering the bad fats(LDL’S)that build up in one’s circulatory system and increases the HDL’s which scavange out and get rid of these bad ones.
I drink very little else besides water ,small amounts of pure juice occasionally. Adding a squeeze of pure lemon or lime juice to the water is very cleansing for the body if this citrus water in small quantities is drank during and after a meal it’s very cleansing for your teeth and mouth as well as the liver. . .
Eating a diet that is anti-inflammatory to the body, especially one that’s low in sodium and comprised of eating essential fatty acids…natural whole and especially raw fruits and vegetables,is not unlike a horse’s! After all, they are given linseed oil(flax seed oil) and eat a lot of hay, made from wheat alfalfa, barley and soybeans. They eat various other vegetables and fruits and fibrous food like wheat bran is added to their diets.
I personally strive to feel light I want to spring off the ground like an antelope!
Eating light makes me feel and become light, it makes it easier on my body inside and outside.Additionally, a vegetarian diet has a significant beneficial impact on the conservation of our resources and our planet (as outlined thoroughly in my book). So for a multitude of reasons, including ethical ones, you’ll want to consider such a diet!
