Ageing and vitality are associated with the following interrelated factors:
- Oxidation damage to cell membranes, which results in disruption of flow into and out of cells.
- An imbalance of excess calcium and magnesium deficiency inside cells.
- Cell dehydration, insufficient water for cell processes, structure & energy.
- Receptor desensitization & insulin resistance; and
- Reduction in ATP (Adenosine Triphosophate) generation, producing a cellular energy crisis.
To increase vitality, longevity and youthfulness you therefore need to:
- Increase the integrity of your cell membranes and receptors.
- Increase magnesium in the diet.
- Overcome cellular dehydration. And
- Regulate insulin & generate ATP.
This 9-page guide teaches you how to achieve this, through a focus on the best foods, superfoods, supplements to achieve anti-ageing, rehydration, removing heavy metals, anti-oxidisation, brain anti-oxidisation, heart health/reducing inflammation, liver detoxification, and achieving full cellular energy.

The modern standard diet retards the human system into becoming a ‘digestive animal', which creates little connection with our emotional or spiritual selves. Fasting increases protein production in the brain and reduces oxidation in the body, and, whilst fasting, maximum nutrition can still be maintained through the use of nutrient-dense supplements.
Reducing caloric intake by 40%, especially carbohydrates, is the most profound way to anti-age and lose weight. Fewer calories (or a raw food diet - unlucky!) combined with mineralization and resveratrol, allows the body to complete its natural cycles with increased efficiency.
The physical and spiritual benefits of fasting and calorie constraint arise due to an increase in nerve energy conductivity, biophoton coherency, and cell membrane fluidity (as your cells are no longer coated with junk), which in turn increases hormone and neurotransmitter receptor availability. Essential, nutritious food allows the true essence of the natural being to shine through once again. Fasting purifies body tissues, including synapses, liver and blood. A diet of 1100-1950 calories a day, versus the average Western diet of 2763 calories per day, is recommended; eating once a day, or every other day, with the main meal being eaten between 9 and 11 am. (Most people right now: Say Whaa'?")
To build & preserve cell membranes and receptors: take Fish oil and other fat-soluble antioxidants.
To increase nerve growth factor & myelination: take Lion’s Mane extract, L-Carnosine, nervonic acid in Purpleblow Maple seed oil, Krill oil and Borage oil. Probably not all at once.
DNA & proteins
Ageing also causes damage to the DNA mechanisms that synthesize proteins. Fast DNA repair is promoted by flavonoids, and any ‘anti-viral’ phytonutrient. Inositol Hexaphosphate (IP6) & Pine Bark Extract may be used, and rusting prevented with Quercetin & Resveratrol.
Faulty proteins cause “fatal” damage to cells, tissues and organs. Just think of how utterly MENTAL 'Johnny 5' went at the end of Short Circuit, and you'll get the picture... To help protein synthesis, colostrum, naringenin (in grapefruit), folic acid, fulvic acid, selenium, plants such as Moringa Oleifera, Cat’s claw, Gingko, all colorful fruits, vegetables, herbs, grains, legumes, nuts, and teas (combined with a raw diet with high 'Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity" (ORAC) will produce the best results. Just don't feed those to robots.
Fighting Free Radicals
Free radicals are little bastard reactive oxygen molecules that have lost an electron in interactions with other molecules, and are *extremely* unstable. They should be approached with care because they are likely armed AND dangerous. They are produced during the production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosophate) in the mitochondria, in digestion, and also from exercise, sunlight, cigarette smoke, alcohol, transfats, pesticides, air pollution, stress, and electromagnetic radiation. Chlorine in drinking water, coffee, birth control pills, other steroids, antibiotics - even the acid produced from negative thinking! - also create free radicals, reduce intestinal bacteria and promote candida yeast growth.
So, yah, it's as if "the Western way" was created by someone with an incredulous sense of humor, to push the boundaries of the human light vessel body, to the point of utter annihilation, just for kicks and tricks.
Free radicals do most of their damage to the outer layer of the cell (the cell membrane, the nicest, most loving part 😭) which is mostly fat, so you need fat-soluble antioxidants to protect your cell membranes, such as: B-complex vitamins, Vitamin C Ester, Alpha Lipoic Acid (Go ALA take on them free radicals! 👊), DMAE, Fish Oil, Vitamin E Tocotrienol, Acetyl L-Carnitine, Glutathione, Pine Bark Extract, Propolis, CoQ10 or Idebenone and magnesium along with NADH (Idebenone’s longer chain organic structure gives it extra powerful anti-oxidant properties making it a more effective “free radical quencher”, like The Terminator). Use negative charge-North pole water, eat plenty of raw-remineralized fruit & vegetables. Melatonin is a major physiological antioxidant too.
Strong protein structures, plus strong antioxidant defenses, mean that extra energy can travel through your system without suffering glycation or oxidation damage.
Superfoods, wild foods, herbs and nutraceuticals guard against neurodegeneration, collagen breakdown, and ageing.
To protect the brain from free radical damage during heightened nerve flow, you can also take hydrophobic (water repelling) antioxidants like pine bark, vitamin C-Ester, and alpha lipoic acid (the blood brain barrier is impervious to hydrophilic, water-loving, substances... Mwuhahaha!).
Despite their destructive power, the body in fact uses free radicals for useful purposes. (Really?) Yes. Their killing power is used by the white blood cells to destroy invading organisms. Free radicals also play a role in the synthesis of major biomolecules—proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids—and in the detoxification of chemicals in the interior of cells. They also help generate cellular energy in mitochondria. Too much stress can increase oxidation damage and overwork the immune system, however.
So basically, always balance the Yin with the Yang. (Wax on, Wax off - oh man, we just got THAT, too!)
The Benefits of Exercise
The best stress reducer is regular exercise, because trained muscles are resistant to oxidative damage because of the increased supply of the body’s own antioxidants.
However, a word of warning: high intensity (HIIT) workouts actually increase free radical activity & oxidative damage in muscles, liver, blood & tissues because your oxygen consumption during these exercises goes up 10-20 times... So! When you next see those dudes in the park with the cheerleader screaming "Yo, gimme some push uuuups Ya ya yya!", calmly walk over, and, making yourself heard over the top of the hip hop pop trop beats, state as follows: "Did you know? The best form of exercise is, one HIIT-type of workout (like this very show of opprobrium before me here), to every TEN regular, lower intensity exercises!"
This will pique their interest significantly, so when they ask you for more information, you say: "Because this will minimize the production of free radicals while strengthening the indigenous (definitely use this word) antioxidants, enzymes and proteins within thine especial system!".
You'll probably have the members of the opposite sex at the HIIT event ask you for your number at this stage, so you can include: "And finally. Fast walking at the pace of 12-15 minutes per mile is ideal for minimum 30 minutes, 3 times per week. And weight-bearing strengthening exercising & stretching, as well as yoga are very beneficial as well. Plus they have yoga pants at yoga - So... maybe just: 'Go to yoga'?"
Without regular exercise the body’s defenses against free radicals become too fragile for the antioxidants in our food and supplements to have full affect. Sedentary people are therefore twice as likely to get cancer & heart disease as active individuals. Exercise builds up your resistance to free radical damage from all stressors and reduces the production of stress chemicals.
Remineralisation & how to overcome cellular dehydration
By your 40’s, you only absorb 50% of the nutrients that you were able to absorb in your 20’s. High amounts of silicon in the diet increase one’s rate of healing and collagen production, prevent against ageing, cancer, and other degenerative and infectious diseases. Silicon deficiency can show up as a weakness of connective tissue; poor hair, nails, skin, collagen and brittle bones; headaches, tinnitus, vertigo, poor eyesight, seizure, and carbo-craving. Honestly!
To help you build up silicon reserves in the body the following products are highly recommended:
- Living Silica is concentrated 3.75x more than other diluted products. This is an organic dietary supplement specially formulated for optimal absorption and 100% bioavailability (the extent to which a nutrient can be used by cells in the body).
- Biosil is 20,000 times more soluble than the silica found in horsetail and colloidal gels and 2.5 times more bioavailable than other forms of silicon.
Minerals such as kelp powder, spirulina, himalayan pink salt, zeolite, and wheatgrass (preferably grown with kelp powder) are also great ways to get colloidal silica minerals readily absorbed into the body.
What we perceive as “beautiful skin” is skin that is smooth and resiliently tight (elastic). This is a function of collagen (the main skin protein) and water content. Collagen is the “body glue” that holds skin and muscle tissues together, and silicon is a large component of collagen.
Collagen production is not merely a matter of eating the right proteins and amino acids, but also the nutrients that facilitate collagen production such as silicon and vitamin C. Collagen proteins comprise the connective tissue of the trachea, the aorta, skin, bone, hair, nails, cartilage and ligaments. Silicon assists in increasing collagen production, removing mercury, prevents dehydration, helps prevent ageing, and provides the lubrication and electrical potential through which the atoms in the body form. It is really rather wonderful.
Most forms of dietary and supplemental silicon are poorly absorbed - what is required is coarse, fibrous plant material that contains the most silicon (ask for the husks, stems, peelings, cores, and behave like a proper caveman). It is interesting to note that only 2% of gorilla intake is fruit! At least 50% of their plant intake is greens, which is part of the reason why their bones are so incredibly strong. Without silicon, which is often missing in the human diet, calcium attaches to the *outside* of human bones but is unable to enter *within* and penetrate the bone mass itself (which is what it's supposed to do also, dummy).
Silicon pumps up cells, and holds water in the tissues. It increases brain activity, concentration, whilst reducing stress & depression.
- Kim Kardashian, to Scott Disick, whatever: "Get me ALL the Silicon in the World IMMEDIATELY!!!"
Colloidal silica gel also binds to bacteria, and is a transporter for calcium deposition in the bones. The stronger and more electrically alive your bones are, the better your immune system is. You need to take in nutrient dense, raw plant protoplasm, lie naked in the sun on the living earth, and frolic in nature. (Frolic, we tell thee!!)
Silicon also regenerates the white blood cells of those with cancer & instigates normal protein synthesis, strengthening the connective tissues which play a significant role in the lymphatic and immune systems. Rapid repair of the mucus membranes in the GI tract protects against the growth of bad bacteria, candida and parasites. Silicon also reduces blood fats & cholesterol and prevents lesion of the vessel walls and the laying down of plaques in the Cardiosystem. Silicon is super-hydrophilic (water-loving) and strongly attracts water molecules, whilst helping maintain the colloidal matrix (Himalayan salt also helps this).
Mucopolysaccharides are built of a series of simple sugars, or polysaccharides, which form a chemical bond with water. They form collagen, glueing cells together, lubricate joints, build connective tissues and they must be received from nutrition.
Chondroitin and hyaluronic acid are mucopolysaccharide components of the collagen structure that forms and holds the body together (even blood is a connective tissue). Exercise, magnesium, copper and zinc are needed for hyaluronic acid production.
The synthesis of collagen requires vitamin C and the minerals copper, iron, manganese, zinc and silicon. B6 is also required for the growth and repair of protein and collagen structure of body. Chaparral, echinacea and sarsaparilla help maintain the integrity of the body’s connective tissues. Vitamin C, Lysine and Proline build strong collagen. (Are you getting this, for your shopping list? 😄)
Aloe Gel Extract
Fresh Aloe Vera gel is a good source of silicon, and it is anti-inflammatory, heals the digestive system lining, and can cure Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Apple pectin slows sugar uptake, as pectin regulates blood glucose levels & has an anti-inflammatory effect in the bowel.
Hulled buckwheat gives off a thick gel after it is soaked and starts sprouting. It helps strengthen the body’s assimilation capacity. You can grow buckwheat in a colander in the fridge and use filtered water to rinse the seeds, and save the resulting goop for internal use and for topical use as a skin softener and hair conditioner. Probably stay in though, just in case.
This is a dietary fiber, a “bulk-forming laxative” capable of absorbing up to 200 times its weight in water, it has extraordinary water-holding capacity. Glucomannan reaches the colon without breaking down, it lowers cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, it slows glucose absorption, lowers GI and promotes regular bowel movements. Dose: take 1g of glucomannan fiber 1 hour before each meal for 8 weeks. There has to be joke in there somewhere, tell us one on Twitter or IG!
Amino Acids in Collagen
Lysine: found in sprouted legumes - especially peanuts, beans, buckwheat, the cabbage family (we'll have more to say about them, later), brewers yeast, wheat germ, chicken, kefir, dairy and seafood. Buckwheat greens and sprouted buckwheat seeds contains substantial amounts of lysine, taurine, calcium, vitamin E, the entire B vitamin complex, and it is especially noted for its high laetrile (vitamin B17) content.
Proline: Foods high in proline include cottage cheese, egg whites, yogurt, cabbage, bamboo sprouts, wheatgerm, gelatin, garlic, taurine, alpha lipoic acid, and green tea.
Chondroitin: This is for cartilage support and repair, chondroitin exists in gooey foods such as natto (fermented soy beans), yamaimo, okra, shark fin, turtle. Please don't eat the turtles...!
