"trust the body"
By following the simple rules of the socalled LAWS OF LIFE we can achieve lasting health & optimal energy.
Our goal is to teach, discuss & improve the best healing methods available. If they are low-cost or free, so much better.
We teach that drugs are unnecessary and will usually delay healing and cause new diseases.
We present excellent no-drugs methods for health recovery, tested and perfected by doctors for over 175 years.
We want to promote health independence and critical thinking.
This webpage is part of our free online magazine, produced by volunteers.
INHS has free membership, chat group and articles.
DIET EXAMPLE - from Anna's kitchen
I usually start the day with a blended salad - usually lettuce & tomatoes & cucumber finely chopped in a food processor. Or whatever other veggies I have at home. Preferably eaten within 10 minutes of chopping. Usually as brunch, an hour or so before noon.
A little while afterwards I may have one or more egg yolks, organic, preferably from outdoors free-roaming hens (Supposedly more nutritious, more omega-3). Sometimes I eat the egg white also, which I usually heat to coagulation - I do this to diminish the toxic avidin in the white. I may add a spoon of flax oil or fish oil, for more omega-3.
After I had been a vegan (almost-vegan) for over a decade, and then went on a stone-age type diet, I had an big craving for eggs. I ate up to 10 a day for a year, after which the craving disappeared. And I still love eggs.
My major meal is in the evening - usually a big salad, and some animal food.
Here is one animal food example: "fena-laar", a Norwegian winter delicacy - a raw air-dried (hanging cold for months) leg of lamb. Sliced thin it is delicious. The Norwegian lambs/sheep are very healthy, having roamed the mountain areas all summer. This leg was dipped in a salt-brine before drying, so it has a salty surface which is non-optimal. (Since removing an excess of salt is an energy-drain for our bodies.) An example of a compromise, as can be common when living in conventionally eating surroundings.
I eat my vegetables raw, sometimes as juices - but my animal foods are often only partly raw, e.g. quick-seared. My big concern now is sugar and starches. Not over-eating on those I currently think this might be of more importance than all-raw eating. Especially since our primitive ancestors probably started using fire quite early. When it comes to fruit I am far from perfect, e.g. I easily over-eat on cherries.
Sometimes I eat conventionally, e.g. with friends and at restaurants, but then try to pick and choose, and may also water-fast or eat less the next day.
