Review this checklist for lifestyle habits that will enable you stay healthy through a long lifetime...
By implementing these health practices... you will be putting the odds in your favor that you can be as healthy as most 40 year olds at age 70, and as healthy as most 70 year olds at age 100; and assuming correct genetic makeup, and with luck to avoid accidents, you can plan on being a contemporary of your great grand children, and great-great, grand children.
Health Practice # 1 — Eat Oxygen Friendly Oils and Avoid Oxygen Unfriendly Oils
Oils are the most important of all foods because they are the most efficient fuel for our cells to burn and because they are essential for good health of cell and mitochondrial membranes. In the long run, your choice of which oils you eat will either make you or break you, at your cell-membrane and mitochondria level.
Oils are the Most Important Food You Eat - Either for Good or For Bad
Beneficial oils are found in many uncooked, unprocessed vegetable seeds such as evening primrose, flaxseed, hemp seed, and so forth. You must understand that as soon as vegetable oils are heated or processed with chemicals, those vegetable oils become dangerous to your health because they will increase cellular hypoxia, that is, they will suffocate your cells, which will lead you towards cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and other bad stuff.
You also need to understand that you need to eat many deferent oils daily, not just one, for those oils to nourish your cell membranes optimally so that cellular oxygen levels are high. Please learn more about the importance of oils by clicking here.
Health Practice # 2: Keep Leptin Levels in the Low Range of Normal
If one were to pick a single health habit that is most likely to increase the chances for a person to live long and healthy it should most probably be to maintain one’s blood levels of the hormone Leptin between 4.0 ng/ml and 9.0 ng/ml (closer to 4.0 is better).
If you are like most people, you have no idea what that means. In lay terms that means to be a fat burner instead of a sugar burning. In even more simple terms, it means to have just the right amount of fat on your body (not too much and not too little) and also to get sufficient sleep each night. If you are too skinny, too fat, or don’t sleep an ample amount each day, then your Leptin levels will not be right and your body will be forced into the unhealthy sugar burning mode.
Sugar-burning mode creates cross-linking of protein molecules (glycation or age spots, externally and internally, where you can’t see them). Also, being in sugar burning mode means that at night when no food is being eaten, your body will eat its own bones and muscles (by turning them into sugar). This is the prime cause of muscle loss and bone density loss as people get older. The sugar burning mode accelerates all disease and aging processes.

Health Practice # 3 — Keep Your Vitamin D3 Levels High
Get Vitamin D3 from the Sun
or From a Capsule!
Vitamin D3 is vital (impossible to overstate its importance). Vitamin D3 is essential to the correct functioning of numerous processes in the body, including immune function, cell membrane health and mineral usage. Its level in your body should be maintained between 50 and 80 ng/ml. Vitamin D3 levels are “dangerously” low when below 20 ng/ml.
Not ensuring that one’s Vitamin D3 levels are in the optimal 50 to 80 ng/ml range is to be foolish; and the darker is one’s skin, and/or the more time one spends indoors, the more likely it is that one’s Vitamin D3 levels are too low for optimum health.

Health Practice # 4: Keep Your Internal Body Free of Toxins and Microbial Invaders
Our greatest enemies are the ones that get inside us. No one would think of allowing contamination to remain inside an automobile engine because we know that that will cause the engine’s useful life to be lost far too soon through corrosion. Yet, we permit microorganisms, heavy metals, pesticides and other damaging elements to remain inside our bodies and reduce our “healthy” life span by a considerable amount. Most Americans spend the last 15% of their life in a very poor state of health. It doesn’t have to be that way.
Consider that external sanitation (the removal of garbage and sewage from proximity to living quarters and the washing of hands and food) has saved more lives than all medicines, hospitals and medical procedures on earth combined.
Internal cleanliness (detoxification) is the next health step after external cleanliness (sanitation). It is the new frontier of health and represents an enormous opportunity for health preservation and increased longevity leading to the best quality of life. Keep your internal body “clean”.
We advocate many specific methods for internal detoxification as follows:
- Cleansing with zeolite
- Cleansing with glutathione
- Cleansing with systemic enzymes
Health Practice # 5: Give Your Body Hydrogen
Redox (reduction/oxidation) processes are at the core operations that enable human life within our cells. Oxidation includes the process of creating life-sustaining energy by burning fuel (fats or sugars) within cellular mitochondria (the power producing organelles inside each cell). Without oxidation, requiring oxygen and fuel, human life would not be possible.
Reduction is the process of cooling down (or reducing) the burning byproducts of that mitochondrial energy production. A reluctant would any atom or molecule with available electrons, such as the most universal reluctant occurring in nature, which is hydrogen. Without hydrogen, and/or other electron furnishing antioxidants, our bodies would simply burn up.
For those of us who want to add years of life to our allotment of time on earth, and who want to be healthy and young for as much of that time as possible, hydrogen-rich water is the way to do it. Learn more about how to have hydrogen in our daily diet.
Health Practice # 6: Eat Many Types of Nutrient Dense Foods (Avoiding Nutrient Lacking Foods)
Eating many types of food is a smart habit for maintaining health. That’s because food contains fuel, fiber and “maintenance parts” for the cells of the human body. These maintenance parts, i.e. nutrition, is what allows our cells to maintain continue replicating perfectly without degradation. And, of course, the point is that no single food contains everything that our body could use. Therefore, the greater the variety of food eaten the more likely that the “parts” needed will be consumed.
If you regularly eat less than 20 different foods then you’re not living this health practice and you need to expand your food selections to many more.
So, continuously try different foods. Focus on nutrient density and minimal processing. The most nutrient dense foods will be ocean grown foods (both sea plants and fish), seeds, sprouts, “organ meats”. There are several meal replacement products that include numerous types of foods in a single “breakfast drink”. Our favorites is:
- Seven Essentials - seven types of food: RiSoTriene, ten different vegetables, probiotics, adaptogens, deep sea minerals and trace minerals, small molecule whey protein, fiber, enzymes, and more
