Also she said that the greatest tragedy of getting old for many is being inactive due to illness and the lack of energy. She counts her blessings, since at the age of 77, Ann still cross country skies every winter at least twice or three times a week.
My love of the outdoors came from my mom. In winter time, Ann would bring my sister and myself to the ice ring either during the day or early evening and in summer she'd take us to the public swimming pool. I don't remember seeing my mom rest other than on Sundays.
What made Ann a believer is in the summer of 2013, she retraced a pneumonia. It took her well over 3 months to to get rid of the infection without medication but she was determined to follow the program along with all the procedures, including daily near infrared saunas and coffee enemas. She rested a lot, took lots of naps during the day and turning in early evenings. This paid off. By the time she was tested by her physician, her lungs were all cleared away. The diet, supplements, and other procedures made a world of difference for her. The pneumonia was retraced when she was a little girl, which was still infecting her lungs.
I suspect Ann healed her pneumonia without medication because of her determination. Also by being faithful to the program, meant also that she was building faith in it and building faith in the body's capacity to heal itself without intervention of drugs or licensed MD's. Certainly, this was not without some risks. She knew that following her doctors' orders meant "healing" faster but this also meant robbing her of energy to fight any future infection and illness. It was a perpetual vicious cycle, she was not willing to embark on anymore.
Faith & The Importance of Sleep
Rest is one of the most important aspect of the nutritional balancing program. Going to bed between 8pm and 9pm and stay in bed until at least 7am.
The reason for bed early is because human growth hormone is produced during the hours of sleep before midnight and the deep rebuilding of the body seems to occur the most before midnight as well. This is why going to bed as early as is conveniently possible, and no later than 9 OR 9:30 pm is excellent.
Also, trying to get up after 7am is best because the adrenals are less active. You may feel tired at first but this helps rest the adrenals. Although many people wake up and get up at about 5 OR 6am due to the adrenal glands becoming active, this unfortunately prevents the adrenals from resting more and as a result a crash occurs often before noon or right after lunch.
Keep in mind that sleep is the silent healer. Even doctors advise their patients, when sick, to rest as much as possible for speedy recovery, although medication are usually prescribed which only builds more toxic in the body and thus less energy to fight infections.
My suggestion is that you try your best to shut the world out around 6 or 7pm. Close your TV, computer, cell phone and any other phones. The earlier you begin to unwind the better for a better sleep.
A lifestyle change to fight any diseases is mandatory. This means however that you need to prioritize what is important to you and not important for others around you. Basically, it's a constant reminder everyday that even though you may think you are healthy, deviating to your old ways of eating and lifestyle will most likely create some kind of illnesses.
