after learning from Hawaiian culture and teachers of the aina (land), that vision
has expanded into building community with like-minded people. Programs differ
according to the needs and skills of the visitors. Some people wish to come

With GeneFit Nutrition, your senses of smell and taste will guide you to eat
the right food, at the right time, in the right quantity, offering optimal digestive
efficiency. All overloads and deficiencies are automatically and effortlessly
balanced out by instinctual adjustment. Natural, unprocessed foods —the type
of food our species has concurrently evolved with for millions of years offer
a much better chemical and genetical compatibility with the body's digestive
enzymes than the foods we only recently, have learned to process. Thanks to
that compatibility the metabolism is perfectly able to fully brake down food
molecules into basic building blocks, which then can easily be absorbed by organs,
cellular tissues and even brain cells for the purpose of nourishment or regeneration.
So at all time between the consumption and the absorption of building blocks
by cells, the body, the digestive system and the brain only come in contact
with the food molecules and nutrients they have been genetically designed for.
In addition, the total absence of molecules denatured by heat or other forms
of processing in the food palette and the powerful cleansing processes triggered
by GeneFit Nutrition are the best aid and prevention against minor and serious

Chemicals and Toxins Are The Primary Cause
of Illness, Disease and Obesity
Substances that are toxic to our bodies come at us from all directions: the
air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, the cleaning products we
use, and the metabolic waste produced inside us. Toxins build-up in the body
contribute to premature aging and chronic anddegenerative
diseases. Dr. Steve Nugent, the past president of the American Naturopathic
Medical Association, reported recently that "in the typical American home there
are more toxins inside the home than outside the home! Your cells actually contain
over 400 new toxins that didn't even exist 45 years ago and we are losing the
battle against toxins!" It's a fact. There are increasing amounts of toxins
and chemical agents in the water we drink, the food we eat and the air we breathe
- they all contribute to the breakdown in cellular communication and disease.

Water The Great Healer and Detoxifier!
Water therapy has been used for centuries to heal the sick. Hydro- and hydrothermal
therapy are traditional methods of treatment that have been used for the
treatment of disease and injury by many cultures, including those of ancient
Rome, China, and Japan. Water therapy has been around for centuries. The
ancient Greeks took therapeutic baths. Water is an important ingredient
in the traditional Chinese and Native American healing systems.
F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. - "Every function inside the
body is regulated by and depends on water. Water must be available to carry
vital elements, oxygen, hormones, and chemical messengers to all parts of
the body. Without sufficient water to wet all parts equally, some more remote
parts of the body will not receive the vital elements that water supplies.
Water is also needed to carry toxic waste away from the cells. In fact,
there are at least 50 reasons why the body needs sufficient water on a regular,
everyday basis. Without sufficient water to constantly wet all parts, your
body's drought-management system kicks into action. The histamine-directed
chemical messenger systems are activated to arrange a new, lower quota of
water for the drought-stricken areas. When histamine and its subordinate
"drought managers" come across pain-sensing nerves, they cause pain. This
is what I discovered in my research that I mentioned earlier."
Benefits of Alkaline, Ionized Water
, by Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi, M.D.
Water has the ability to attract and accumulate bio-energy. It also stores
an energy memory of harmful or helpful vibrations to which it was exposed
in the past. Chlorinated tap water is polluted with non-biological chemicals
and negative energy imprints. It is also devoid of bio-energy and so may
be regarded as being badly polluted as well as 'dead'. Alkaline living water
is regarded by a growing number of health care professionals as the best
water to drink and is listed as a medical device in Japan for the treatment
of degenerative diseases.
Joseph M. Price, MD - "Chlorine
is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times. It is an insidious
Albert Schatz, Ph.D - "Fluoridation
is the greatest fraud that has ever been perpetrated and it has been perpetrated
on more people than any other fraud has." Professor Albert Schatz, Ph.D.
(Microbiology), Discoverer of streptomycin and Nobel Prize Winner
Matthew Silver, MD - "An associate in her early fifties
who had suffered for many years from the toxic effects of chlorine
poisoning from inhaling vapors from an over-chlorinated
swimming pool. This had resulted in many severe health challenges including
extreme chronic fatigue and breathing difficulty that kept her housebound
and dependent on oxyn. Even minimal exertion led to extreme shortness of
breath. After just three days of drinking glyconutrients,
she reported that all of her symptoms improved dramatically and that she
was able to leave her house without oxygen and work in her garden, which
she had not been able to do in years." The sugars found on all
Glyconutrients (saccharides) also address the workings
of the brain and nervous system – from memory and sleep to anxiety and depression.
Safe, toxin-free, Ionized, Energized,
Drinking Water helps to naturally flush toxins and acidic waste from
the body and is a powerful antioxidant. Ionized Water makes more oxygen
available to our cells than distilled, reverse osmosis, filtered only, bottled
or tap water and is the best possible drinking water. "Disease and early
death is more likely to be seen with the long term drinking of purified
water. Avoid it except in special circumstances." Zoltan P. Rona

Symptoms to Expect When You Improve Your Diet
by Dr. Stanley S.
3119 Coney Island Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11235
If I were asked which is the area of greatest misunderstanding and confusion
in the field of nutrition, I would immediately be forced to reply that it
is the failure to properly understand and interpret the symptoms and changes
which follow the beginning of a better nutritional program.
What is meant by a better nutritional program?
It is the introduction of foods of higher quality in place of lower quality
ones. For example, if a person replaces a protein rich food such as pork
with beef, the beef may be considered the superior of the two due to its
easier digestibility, lower and less saturated fat content, etc.; chicken
is superior to beef and fish is superior to chicken because of its more
rapid digestibility and lower saturated fat content. Lima beans, lentils,
or chick peas, which are eaten at the same meal with vegetables are superior
in all the nutrients needed to rebuild health.
As we go higher on the scale of quality, we begin to include protein
rich food which may be eaten in the unfired state, such as cheese which
is made from raw milk and unsalted. Then we ascend to the nuts and seeds
which are eaten in the natural state (raw and unsalted).
To summarize: the closer the food comes to the natural state in which
it occurs, or the closer to its raw, unfired form, the higher its quality.
In this condition, all the enzymes are found intact. The amino acids are
in their finest form. The minerals, vitamins, trace elements, carbohydrates,
and "life force" are present. The life force, in turn, is capable of reproducing
This same classification of quality which we analyzed in relation to
protein rich foods applies to the carbohydrates (the starch and sugar-rich
foods), the fats, and the mineral-rich foods.
The quality of a nutritional program is also improved by omitting toxic
substances such as coffee, tea, chocolate, tobacco, salt, pepper, etc. from
What is the relation of quality of foods to recovery from illness? It
is this in a nutshell: The higher the quality of food we eat, the quicker
we recover from disease, provided we are able to digest and assimilate properly.
To this must be added the knowledge of (a) proper food combining; (b)
proper order of eating the different kinds of food at a meal, e.g., the
most easily digested food should be eaten first, the more complex one second,
and the most concentrated item last; (c) the correct quantity of food to
be consumed (of each type) in the meal; and (d) the correct time for eating
(when hungry and not by the clock).
Now, what happens when a person follows these rules and makes a decided
improvement in the quality of food consumed? Remarkable things begin to
happen to the body as well as the mind. The amazing intelligence present
in every cell of the body and the wisdom of the body in its operation immediately
becomes manifest. The rule may be stated thusly: When the quality of the
food coming into the body is of higher quality than the tissues which the
body is made of, the body begins to discard the lower grade materials and
tissues to make room for the superior materials which it uses to make new
and healthier tissue.
This is the plan of Nature -- the body is very selective and always tries
to produce health and always will, unless our interference is too great.
Only then do we fail to recover and degenerate further into disease. The
self-curing nature of many conditions such as colds, fevers, cuts, swellings,
injuries, etc., furnishes endless examples of how the body tends towards
health--always--unless we do something to
What are the symptoms or signs which become evident when we first begin
to omit the lower grade foods and instead introduce superior foods--those
which are most alive, more natural than we are accustomed to? When the use
of toxic stimulants such as coffee, tea, chocolate, or cocoa is suddenly
stopped, headaches are common and a letdown occurs. This is due to the discard
by the body of the toxins called caffeine and theobromine which are removed
from the tissues and transported through the bloodstream during its many
Before the noxious agents reach their final destination for elimination,
these irritants register in our consciousness as pain--in other words, headache.
The letdown is due to the slower action of the heart--the resting phase
which follows the stimulation of more rapid heart beat forced upon the body
by certain poisons called stimulants. The more rapid heart beat (or pulse)
produces a feeling of exhilaration, and the slower action produces a depressed
state of mind. Usually, within three days, the symptoms vanish and we feel
stronger due to the recuperation which follows.
To a lesser extent, the same process occurs when we abandon lower quality
foods and replace them with better foods. Lower quality foods have undergone
more preparation. Spices, salt, and other ingredients have been added, as
they tend to be more stimulating than less prepared and more natural foods.
Animal foods such as meat, fowl, fish, etc. are more stimulating than cheese,
nuts, and vegetable proteins.
Consequently, the withdrawal of stimulation which follows the abandonment
of animal food produces a slower heart action--a resting phase--which registers
in the mind as relaxation or a decrease of energy. This initial letdown
lasts about ten days or slightly longer and is followed by an increase of
strength, a feeling of diminishing stress and greater well-being.
Now let us return to the symptoms which occur in the process of regeneration.
The person who starts a better diet, stays on it for three days to a week,
and then quits will say, "Oh, I felt better on the old diet--the new one
makes me feel weak." He failed because he didn't give his body a chance
to adjust and complete its first phase of action--recuperation. If he had
waited a while longer, he would have begun to feel better than before he
During the initial stage (lasting about ten days on the average to several
weeks in others), the vital energies which are usually in the periphery
or external part of the body such as the muscles and skin, begin to move
to the vital internal organs and start reconstruction. This shunting of
much of the power to the internal region produces a feeling of less energy
in the muscles, which the mind interprets as some weakness.
Actually, the power is increased, but most of it is being used for rebuilding
the more important organs and less of it is available for muscular work.
Any weakness which is felt here is not true weakness, but merely a redeploying
of forces to the more important internal parts. Here it is important for
the person to stop wasting energy, and to rest and sleep more. This is a
crucial phase, and if the person resorts to stimulants of any kind, he will
abort and defeat the regenerative intent of the body.
It is important that he have patience and faith and just wait it out,
and after a while he will get increasing strength which will exceed by far
what he felt before he began the new program.
Success in recovery or improvement of health hinges upon the correct
understanding of this point -- realizing that the body is using its main
energies in more important internal work and not wasting it in external
work involving muscle movements. Be wise, take it easy here, and relax.
Just coast in your work and social obligations until you're out of the woods.
As one continues on the improved diet and gradually raises the food quality,
interesting symptoms being to appear. The body begins a process called retracing.
It says to itself, "Now we have a chance to get rid of this old garbage
and build a beautiful new house. Let's get started immediately. Let's get
this excess bile out of the liver and gall bladder and send it to the intestines
for elimination. Let's get the sludge moving out of the arteries, veins,
and capillaries. These smelly, gassy, brain-stupefying masses have been
here too long--out with them! These arthritic deposits in the joints need
cleaning up. Let's get these irritating food preservatives, aspirins, sleeping
pills, and drugs out of the way, along with these other masses of fat which
have made life so burdensome for us for so long. Let's get going till the
job is down--till we have a beautiful house--and from there on we'll keep
it a beautiful ideal model house."
During the first phase (called catabolism), the accent is on elimination,
or breaking down of tissue. The body begins to clean house--in short, to
remove the garbage deposited in all the tissues--everywhere. During this
period, the body removes the ashes from the furnace preparatory to getting
a better fire. Here the accentuation is on removal of the gross and immediate
body obstructions. Wastes are discarded more rapidly than new tissue is
made from the new food. This becomes evident as weight loss. This persists
for a while and is then followed by the second phase--called stabilization.
Here, the weight remains more or less stable. During this phase, the
amount of waste material being discarded daily is equal to the amount of
tissue which is being formed and replaced by the newer, more vital food.
This occurs after the excess of obstructing material in the tissues has
This state persists for a while and is then followed by a third phase
-- a build-up period called anabolism, wherein weight starts to go up, even
though the diet is lower in calories than it was before. At this point,
much or more of the interfering wastes have already been discarded -- the
tissues which have been formed since the diet was raised in quality are
more durable and do not break down easily. Also, new tissues are now being
formed faster. This is due to the improved assimilation made possible by
the ceasing of wrong food combining. The body's need for the usual amounts
of food decreases, and we are able to maintain our weight and increased
energies with less food.
Many are able to function very efficiently on two meals a day. As the
body progressively increases in efficiency and decreases in tissue breakdown
under exercise, so do we gradually need less and less food to maintain life.
The higher the percentage of raw food one lives on, the slower the rate
of tissue deterioration which one evolves into. A sick body requires a gradual,
carefully worked-out entry into this stage, where one is able to live on
a 100% unfired (raw) diet, if desired.
Returning to the symptoms which occur on a superior nutritional program,
people who have had tendencies in the past to recurring skin rashes or eruptions
will frequently tend to eliminate poisons and harmful drugs through the
skin with new rashes or eruptions. If they go to a doctor now who is not
familiar with this aspect of nutrition, he will diagnose it as an allergy.
They ask, "How come? I'm eating better now than I ever did before, and
instead I'm getting worse." They don't understand that the body is retracing.
The skin is getting more alive and active. It's throwing out more poisons
more rapidly now that the body is building more power which is saved from
those hard-to-ingest meals which have been discontinued. These toxins being
discarded are saving you from more serious disease which will result if
you keep them in your body too much longer--possibly hepatitis, kidney disorders,
blood disease, heart disease, arthritis, nerve degenerations or even cancer--depending
upon your hereditary or structural weaknesses. Be happy you're paying your
bills now in an easy-payment plan.
With some, colds which haven't appeared for a long time may occur, or
even fevers. This is nature's way of housecleaning. Understand that these
actions are constructive, even though unpleasant at the moment. Don't, but
don't, try to stop these symptoms by the use of certain drugs, or even massive
doses of vitamins which will act as drugs in huge concentrations. These
symptoms are part of a curing process, and don't try to cure a cure.
These are not deficiency conditions or allergic manifestations -- not
if you're eating properly in quality, quantity, combination and sequence.
Here is where experienced advice is a great value. Unfortunately, there
are few good books present today which give full guidance to the average
reader. Try to find guidance through a doctor or teacher who has the requisite
experience in this most confusing of all subjects--nutrition in relation
to health and disease.
You may be eating perfectly in regard to quantity, quality, and observing
all the correct rules, and still symptoms will occur. Those who have lived
better lives in the past--who have eaten better foods and who have abused
their bodies less with over-eating will have reactions ranging from almost
none at all or very mild symptoms which may be uncomfortable or acute. Those
who have lived worse lives and poisoned themselves more will experience
more severe symptoms if their liver, kidneys, or other important eliminating
organs have been damaged. When they have been renovated to the point of
fair working order, they will no longer produce symptoms.
Headaches may occur at the beginning; fever and/or colds may also appear;
the skin may break out; there may be a short interval of bowel sluggishness,
occasional diarrhea, feelings of tiredness and weakness, disinclination
to exercise, nervousness, irritability, negativity or mental depression,
frequent urination, etc. However, the great majority of people find their
reactions tolerable and are encouraged to bear with them because of the
many improvements which have already occurred and are becoming more evident
with each day. This acts as an inspirational force to them.
The symptoms will vary according to the materials being discarded, the
conditions of the organs involved in the elimination, and the amount of
energy you have available. The more you rest and sleep when symptoms are
present, the milder they are and the more quickly they are terminated.
Be happy you are having symptoms. Realize deeply that your body is becoming
younger and healthier every day because you are throwing off more and more
wastes which would eventually have brought pain, disease, and much suffering.
Those who have the worst symptom-reactions and follow through to their successful
termination are thus avoiding some of the worst diseases which would eventually
have developed had they continued their careless eating habits.
Don't expect to go on an ascending scale of quality, that improving your
diet will make you feel better and better each day until you reach perfection.
The body is cyclical in nature, and health returns in a series of gradually-diminishing
cycles. For example, you start a better diet and for a while you feel much
better. After some time, a symptom occurs--you feel nauseous for a day and
have diarrhea with a foul-smelling stool. After a day, you feel even better
than before and all goes fine for awhile. Then you suddenly develop a cold,
feel chills and lose your appetite. After about two or three days (assuming
you don't take drugs or do anything else about it), you suddenly recover
and feel better than you did for years.
Let us say this well-being continues for two months, when you suddenly
develop an itch or rash. You don't take anything special for it. This rash
flares up, gets worse and continues for ten days, and suddenly subsides,
immediately after this you find that your hepatitis is gone and your energy
has increased more than ever before. The rash became an outlet for the poisons
in the liver which produced the hepatitis.
This is how recovery occurs--like the cycles in the Dow-Jones Average
at the beginning of a bull market recovery. You feel better, a reaction
occurs and you don't feel as well for a short while. You recover and go
even higher. Then another reaction occurs, milder than the last. You recover
and go even higher. And so it goes, each reaction milder than the last as
the body becomes pure--each becoming shorter in duration and being followed
by a longer period of feeling better than ever before, until you reach a
level plateau of vibrant health. Here you become relatively disease-free.
We must learn to obey the laws of Nature. We must learn to eat simple,
pure, and natural foods, properly prepared and combined, and our bodies
in return will cast off all the poisons we have taken in during our lives.
The mysteries of the body, the operations of nature, the vital forces working
in nature are far beyond what our minds are prepared to understand at present.
Every great physician or scientist who ever lived marveled in awe and humility
at the wonders of nature. Yes--we are "fearfully and wonderfully made!"
