Dr. Ann Wigmore taught that eating Living Foods and using Natural Means for Wellness was the key to longevity and quality of life. Dr. Ann is still described as a woman who, at the age of eighty-four, could run a flight a stairs without having to catch her breath.
Living foods, along with good physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual habits, are primary in lengthening and fulfilling one’s life.
Excerpt from "The Anti-Aging Diet" by Gerald and Johanna Talifero
This diet will help you to effectively rejuvenate your body and extend your life expectancy. According to the latest scientific and medical research our bodies are designed to be healthy and live until the age of 120 to 140 years old. It is our un-natural tendencies and lifestyles that have caused us to evolve into civilizations in which death by disease is considered natural.
It only makes sense to try to bring our bodies into alignment with the natural foods found on the planet which are part of the same natural realm as we are. This is not a radical diet. This is a natural diet and the further you get away from this diet the more radical your diet becomes. This diet is the holy grail everyone is looking for.
Reverse the Aging Process
When we are young our bodies make more cells than we wear out so we grow. When we reach middle age we replace cells at the same rate that we wear them out and when we reach old age then we wear out cells faster than we replace them. The rejuvenation of cell growth is totally dependent upon the quality and vitality of our diets. Vitamin pills, Mineral supplements, Enzyme tablets, liquids that have been made from various foods, are all great things to sell to make money. It is easy to make them sound like miracle cures. It is easy to convince people that they will work, because that is what people want to hear. They want to find youth in a bottle. Well, the truth is actually even more simple than a pill! The truth is that the only really usable form of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and nutrients is found in specific foods, prepared in ways that do not damage these elements.
When we eat the anti-aging diet then the aging process is totally slowed down and we are able to retain our youth for a much longer period of time. The processes and habits humankind has developed for preparing food over the past million years have contributed to shorter life spans and the proliferation of disease. When you hear how to prepare foods so that they will be healthful you will say "Of course! Why didn't I think of that!" . The principle behind the Anti-Aging Diet is a similar discovery to when medical doctors discovered 200 years ago that if they washed their hands in-between operations it prevented infection. This discovery revolutionized medicine and prevented an untold number of hospital deaths that used to be common occurrences. This is just such a discovery. It is just as simple as washing your hands! And just as obvious!
Sometimes we humans overlook the obvious because we are so blinded by our cleverness. We were so blinded by our cleverness in being able to perform operations that we didn't think of the very obvious truth that we were killing people through spreading germs from one sick person to another. We are so blinded by our cleverness in creating delicious meals that we do not realize the very basic and simple way in which we are killing the nutrients in the foods!
