The Foreword

“As a naturopath, I am impressed by the comprehensiveness of this book. The 101 ways listed to improve your health cover the important, fundamental steps we can easily take to improve our wellbeing and prevent disease, for disease is not something that just ‘happens’ to us. Most of the time, it is simply the accumulated effects of not looking after ourselves properly. Even contagious diseases can often be avoided by keeping our immune systems strong. By following the points in this book, your immune system and your whole being is bound to be strengthened. Your body will wear out quickly if you don’t give it what it needs (or if you give it too much of what it doesn’t need)!

As human beings, we not only have physical requirements but also mental, emotional and spiritual needs. To remain healthy we need to address each of these areas of our lives. This book offers simple and effectivre steps we can take to keeep ourselves healthy and happy — for good health and happiness go hand in hand. When we are feeling happy we release certain chemicals (neurotransmitters) into the bloodstream, which have beneficial effects on the cells of our bodies, for example, they strengthen the immune system, are anti-inflammatory, and relieve stress. When we are upset, we release different chemicals which are damaging to our cells.

We can use this knowledge to heal our bodies, not only by giving it proper food and nutrients but also by using the power of our minds — to consciously choose more happy thoughts, and to do more of the things that make us feel good, like walking in the park, or listening to relaxing music. Therefore the points listed towards the back of this book, such as massage and relaxation, are just as important as those near the front.

Congratulations Lyall on producing such an easy to read and helpful collection of vital healthcare information.”

From the Author

A human body is able to live disease-free for 120 years or more if it is properly cared for. Many people maintain their cars in immaculate condition, making sure that they get the right fuel and lubrication, and ensuring that they are regularly cleaned and serviced, but do not treat their own bodies with the same respect.

There is a considerable amount of confusion in the commercial world about what are the best ways to maintain your body. This book explains in simple straightforward logical terms how you can easily maintain your body in good condition. It takes the confusion out of all the hype.
