Excerpt from Bragg’s Build Powerful Nerve Force Book – Chapter 5
Click book title for more information.

There is nothing better to build powerful Nerve Force than a brisk two to five mile hike everyday. You’re too old and flabby? Nonsense! Dad’s a great great grandfather and he loves to hike, jog, run, swim, ride his bicycle, climb mountains, play tennis and enjoys playing many other athletic sports. You’re never too old to start! Of course, we don’t expect you to plunge right in and become an athlete overnight! Do it gradually. Start out with a one mile hike every day for a week. Then increase it to two miles. As you exercise your muscles, your blood starts circulating briskly through your body. Breathe deeply and fill your lungs with oxygen. You will feel new vigor and vitality surging through you! You will eat with a good appetite and you will sleep like a baby. Your Nerve Force reservoirs will soon be filled with energy, go-power and you will have a new zest for living!

The more time you spend in the fresh air and gentle sunshine doing physical activity, the greater your reserves of Nerve Force will be! In our long experience as teachers of health, fitness and longevity, we found those who exercise regularly have greater poise and a more balanced personality. They are also generally free from nervous and emotional stress that plague the typically inactive person.

This is apparent among children. The inactive child who refuses to join his playmates in play, games and sports is generally the “odd” child, nervous and emotionally unstable. The active child who loves playing games and sports is almost always better balanced emotionally because their energies are directed along constructive lines of action. The same holds true with teenagers. When their energies are channeled into games, sports and outdoor activities, they don’t have idle time or energy to get into trouble. They enjoy better grades and health. In the Hawaiian Islands, the swimming is so ideal that we have great fun hosting swimming contests with youngsters of all ages. They splash and dive in the water, and their merry laughter rings in the clear, tropical air! When we talk to the parents of these active children, we find they have absolutely no emotional or social problems with them. No matter what your age, exercise can do wonders for you. It is never too late to start tapping the rich veins of vitality lying dormant within every person! If you want to be well-balanced emotionally and free of stresses, strains and tensions – make it a habit to get outdoors for physical activity at least once every day.

Sea Kelp Is Worth Its Salt

Filed under: Bragg Book Excerpts — Tags: , — admin @ 8:00 AM

Excerpt from Bragg’s Healthy Heart Book – Chapter 12.

In our expeditions over the world we have met many primitive tribes in the tropics that use no salt. And while they are not bothered by the heat, salt-eating white people invariably complain about the hot weather. This seems to indicate that some commercial motive lies behind the eat more salt in hot weather campaign. People undoubtedly would not add inorganic salt to their food if they were never taught to do so in the first place. The taste for salt is an acquired one.The craving for salt ceases a short time after it is eliminated from the diet. It is only during the first few weeks after the use of table salt is discontinued that it is really missed. After the initial period of abstinence there is little difficulty. In fact, many of our health students who have broken the deadly salt habit write us to say that now they cannot stand salted foods! When someone serves them salted foods, it gives them an abnormal thirst for liquids!

What Table Salt Does to Your Stomach
An important objection to table salt is the fact that it interferes with the normal digestion of food. Pepsin, an enzyme found in the hydrochloric acid of the stomach, is essential for the digestion of proteins. Only 50% as much pepsin is secreted as would otherwise be the case when salt is used. Obviously the digestion of protein foods will be incomplete or too slow under such conditions. The results are excessive putrefaction of protein, bloating, gas and digestive distress, which effects millions.

Sea Kelp is an Excellent Salt Substitute. It’s a Tasty, Healthy, Organic Sodium.
Many outstanding heart specialists heartily endorse a no-salt diet. There are some excellent seasoning substitutes available to satisfy an acquired craving for salt. In the Bragg home we use sea kelp granulars, herbs, garlic, vegetable seasonings and Bragg Liquid Aminos. In our opinion, sea kelp is an ideal salt substitute. It gives all foods – salads, vegetables, etc. – a tangy taste as Bragg Aminos does. The Bragg Products and sea kelp granulars (rich in folate, calcium and magnesium to build new blood cells) are available at health food stores. Fresh and powdered garlic, lemon juice and Braggs organic, raw apple cider vinegar are excellent seasoners, also, Italian and French herbs add delicious flavors to foods. Take a lesson from world famous French chefs! The marvelous flavor of French dishes is achieved by the skillful use of garlic, onions, mushrooms, herbs – not with salt! French cooking is called rich – but it’s a richness of taste and not of content. The best French chefs use very little fat and most use no salt at all!

Thy Food Will Be Thy Remedy! – Hippocrates

Filed under: Bragg Book Excerpts — Tags: — admin @ 5:00 AM

Excerpt from Bragg’s Healthy Lifestyle Book – Chapter 1
Click book title for more information.

On the Chios Island (now Khios) in classical Greece 2,500 years ago, Hippocrates, the bearded physician-teacher – father of medicine, sat in the shade of an Oriental plane- tree on a beautiful hillside. There Hippocrates taught and enlightened his medical students with these brilliant, factual and ageless words of wisdom so needed today. Your Food Will Be Your Remedy . . . No one, to date, has more eloquently described a healthy way of life! The entire Toxicless Diet, Body Purification and Healing System is based on this one vital truth. This System is based on the principle that with healthy foods and fasting you can cleanse, purify and rebuild your body and find perfect health again. Yes, food can be your medicine! My father, over the course of his entire, long lifetime, proved that within fruits and vegetables are the amazing natural remedies for most of man’s physical problems. The medical profession insists that it strives to emulate the Father of all physicians. Indeed, it requires its practitioners to take the Hippocratic Oath, one of the most sublime declarations of lofty ethics ever written. Yet today there are thousands of dedicated bacteriologists, pharmaceutical researchers and chemists sitting in gleaming laboratories throughout the world, busily turning out synthetic, so-called “magic” drug panaceas for every human misery. Unlike the wise Hippocrates, their unwise battle cry appears to be: ” Thy remedy shall be our newly invented wonder drug.”

“Fast Relief” Claims Misguide Americans
TV, movies and videos are schools of wrong living, promoting junk foods and fast remedies, as well as crime, killing and the lowering of our morals and family principles! We must all protest! This unhealthy and unwholesome philosophy is accelerating the downfall of America’s health and family principles! Look at the TV commercials – the old and new remedies flash on the screen. We have all heard claims of Get fast relief for headaches, with this remedy or the other. Fast relief for acid stomach, heartburn and indigestion. If your joints and muscles hurt, take this fast, fast remedy. Not only TV, but also radio, newspapers and magazines are full of remedies for all kinds of human physical and mental ailments. The unhealthy and anxiety-ridden Americans by the millions obey the persuasive messages of TV ads that cost the drug companies millions. People are made to believe that they can purchase health and energy at the drugstore in bottles filled with miracle drugs, powders, liquids and pills. They didn’t know that health can be found only by obeying Mother Nature’s and God’s Healthy Lifestyle Laws. Ailing, sickly people today are constantly looking for an instant “cure-all”, some miracle substance that will restore their lost health and youth! This Toxicless Diet, Body Purification and Healing System is the intelligent way to follow the clear-cut Laws of Mother Nature.
