HEALING HERBS: Menu to better body

Social Share

Happiness envelops ME because of the extremely positive feedback pertaining to the articles in this series.
This has led to my addressing specific concerns that are bothersome to some men. These concerns should be treated as warnings of impending or existing unholistic issues.
When the following show up in life, it means change is necessary: a protruding belly preventing you from seeing your toes, obesity, constipation, unexplained weight loss, discoloured urine, swollen feet, numbness in the feet, a persistent dry cough, addiction to alcohol, smoking, pornography, illegal drugs and unholistic foods/drinks, difficulty urinating, no desire to exercise, having several sexual partners, erectile problems, and taking more than one type of medication with many listed side effects.
These developments or issues should be researched and professional advice should be sought.
Always remember that silent doctors heal even at the celluar level.
From time immemorial, men have been said to not look after their health. However, what is becoming more apparent is that men are taking greater control of their lives. A key area being focused on is exercise.
I now add to this positive step with the menu below as a qualified former food and nutrition tutor, a graduate of Barbados Community College – Hospitality Division, and a herbal educator.
Recite this affirmation: “I am a unique individual created by the Creator. I must look after my health.”
1 cup of tepid water with ½ tsp lime juice or a dash of cayenne pepper
1 cup boiled oats with almond milk,
½ cup of fruit (avoid mixing fruits); use Barbadian fruit in season Ryvita biscuits with almond butter Nettle/bay-leaf tea
Carrot/celery sticks
Fruit smoothie
Brown rice
Lentil stew/steamed fish
Tossed salad
Light soup
The above menu can be modified, but it is important to keep it holistic.
I try my best to have holistic relationships with all men. In fact, my husband has taught me the importance of understanding the psychology of men.
He enthusiastically informed me that in a man’s daily focus, a prevailing ingrained ritual is having discussions about holistic health, nutritious meals, and consuming silent doctors.
