We advise those who live, work, etc. in smog-ridden, polluted cities to obtain a good air filter. We especially recommend filters which contain charcoal and a high efficiency particulate HEPA air filter. The charcoal removes most of the chemicals and the HEPA filter removes most of the particles. To be effective in an average room, the flow rate through the filter should be over 200 cubic feet of air per minute. The wise motorist will also install an air filter in his car for cleaning the air while driving in air-polluted cities. Auto stores and catalogs usually stock them.

When we are born, our lungs are new, fresh, clean, and rosy in color. If we could live in a dust-free atmosphere breathing deeply all our lives, then our lungs would remain as good as new for a long, healthy lifetime of use. Yet most people abuse their lungs! Some of this comes from external causes. The lungs are the only organs of the body which are directly affected by external conditions, specifically, the air we breathe into them! Mother Nature has provided protection against a normal amount of dust contamination: tiny hairs in the nose serve as filters and moist mucus in the passages leading to the lungs traps dust particles that we expel through the nose or mouth. The tonsils also serve as guards to trap germs. The lungs protect themselves remarkably well by expelling carbon dioxide through oxygenation and by discharging toxins into the blood for elimination via the kidneys. Your body is a miracle!

Unfortunately, most civilized people today live in very unnatural conditions. Almost everywhere there are abnormal amounts of pollutants in the air we breathe, especially in urban areas. Our lungs are often overloaded with more contaminants than they can handle. These are passed along into the bloodstream and to other parts of the body. The lungs of a modern city dweller become brownish from car smog, soot, etc. Even in most farming areas, the lungs must contend with pollens, excessive dust, poisonous pesticides, fertilizers and other toxic chemicals. A California study shows that 275 people die yearly in smog-riddled L.A. areas from smog. They estimate soon this figure could be triple that amount annually!

Relaxation Is a Healthy, Soothing Feeling

Relaxation is a special feeling. There is no other way to express it. This feeling is not something you can turn off and on at will. It is something that must be built up in the conscious and the subconscious mind, something you build up in every one of the billions of cells in your body, in your entire nervous system, in your vital organs and in your muscles.

There have been times – yes, many times – when you have correctly let your feelings direct your life. Haven’t you said to yourself more than once, “I have a feeling I should not go on that trip as I planned to do?” Let’s say it was to be a plane trip. So you listened to the inner voice of your feelings and did not go. Then something came up in your life that made you glad you didn’t go. You relied upon your feelings. We have often said, “I have a feeling that person doesn’t like me.” Sure enough, we find that person trying to undermine our character to others. Or, someone hurts you dreadfully and you say to them, “You have hurt my feelings.” You feel the hurt deep inside. Yes, we do have feelings and we do feel things. Relaxation is a feeling. Your feelings allow your nerves to relax. Your feelings can banish stress, strain and tensions to bring calm, inner peace and serenity. Feeling is the life force within you that is always working for you. All it needs is a chance. It is astonishing how few people get their physical, mental and emotional debris out of the way and let feeling work for them. habits. Feeling follows the law of cause and effect. Every effect in life is produced by a cause. You get out of life just what you put into it. It is one of the great and inflexible laws of life. Most people are plagued with stress, strains and tensions. These conditions do not just appear out of a blue sky! They are motivated by a cause. Relaxation is a feeling produced by one’s actions, attitude and environment. If you follow a defined program of building Nerve Force, you can produce the feeling of complete relaxation! However, you must earn this feeling. There is no use trying to get it with a cigarette, cup of coffee, tea, cola or an alcoholic drink.

Everyone knows what it is to feel miserable . . . just as everyone knows how it feels to be tired, exhausted, weak, sad or depressed. All people know what pain feels like. Our feelings do not deceive us. We all know how we feel when we get up in the morning. We know how we feel during the day. Feeling is a vital part of our lives!

Living This Lifestyle You Will Gain Super Energy

When you give up breakfast you will be thrilled and have all the more Super Energy to enjoy! In our personal lives, my father and I do most of our creative work in the morning. And when it’s time for our daily physical activity – such as hiking, swimming, tennis or other sports – we are still filled with vital strength. Remember, it takes a tremendous amount of energy to digest a heavy breakfast. You cannot put your energy in two arenas at once, into both food and activity. People often wonder why we accomplish so much between 6 a.m. and noon.

It’s because we have not dissipated our Vital Force on a big breakfast. Our daily Apple Cider Vinegar Cocktail, whole or juiced fruit or the Bragg Healthy Pep Drink is all we need – and we both have inexhaustible super energy! You Must Earn Your Food By noon you are ready for the first meal of the day. You have earned it. You have used both mental and physical energy.

Always start this first important main meal with a large health salad consisting of coarse vegetables – all raw (grate finely if chewing problems, etc.). Make the base of your health salads from “Nature’s Broom” veggies – chopped or grated cabbage, carrots, beets and celery. To this base you can add any fresh, raw organic vegetables you desire: broccoli, cauliflower, turnips, cucumbers (with their unwaxed green skin), lettuce, radishes, parsley, peas, avocado, tomatoes, green onions, mushrooms, red and green peppers or any other fresh, raw vegetables.

Top this wonderful mixture with a fresh salad dressing made of Bragg Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (with the “Mother” enzyme), honey and Bragg Organic Olive Oil. Always eat your fill of raw salad first! Never let hot food touch your mouth until you have finished your health salad! The salad is the internal broom, purifier and strong fighter that pushes toxins out. Toxins just have to move out of the body when these live nutrients in the raw salads get to work.
