The general belief today remains if you eat all the right foods and exercise regularly, nothing more is needed to maintain good health. This is based on the father of medicine Hippocrates teaching of long ago, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” What you put into your mouth, the quantity and the frequency, is critical to good health. However maximizing cellular health is more complex than that. As best stated by a Board Certified Anti-Aging physician active in the stem cell arena (with 30 years of traditional medical experience including teaching at the University of Texas Medical School), “you simply cannot eat enough of the right foods to get the nutrients you need to maximize cellular health … certainly not without getting fat!” (1)
So how do you get what you need to live the healthiest long life possible while maintaining a great body?
1. You will be healthier than the general public if you – eat right, exercise regularly, minimize stress, minimize exposure to toxins, and get adequate sleep. See Dr. Deepak Chopra’s short article, “7 Secretes to Grow Younger and Live Longer.”
2. But to truly maximize your cellular health you need to also: (a) take the right supplements and superfoods daily, (b) find a qualified nutritional therapy expert, (c) undergo testing and assessment of your special characteristics, and (d) participate in nutritional IV protocols, natural hormone therapies and whatever other protocols are suggested by your natural health expert practitioner. If you can afford it, consider an annual anti-aging stem cell infusion boost.
3. JUICE, ideally organic fruits and vegetables (ideally also enhanced with superfood concentrates), using a slow juicer that does not heat up and destroy sensitive enzymes and other nutrients. This could be the most important and simplest method to enhance health naturally. Read More on juicing from Dr. Lodi.
Some interesting food related quotes by famous leaders to drive home how important food and nutrition is to your life:
“Let food by thy medicine.“ Hippocrates. “The Doctor of the future will give little medicine but rather educate patients on the care and maintenance of the body.“ Thomas Edison. “Malnourishment underlies nearly all ailments. Disease preys on malnourished bodies. Food crops grown on depleted soils do not provide adequate nutrition.” the late Professor Cavanaugh, Agricultural Chemist, Cornell University, and one of the first people to study and promote the nutritional benefits of sea plants and vegetables.
Our body requires a variety of nutrients (numbering into the hundreds) and phytonutrients (numbering into the thousands) taken regularly for proper function and optimal cellular health. That is why concentrated superfoods are so important. Click here for an example of a super high quality superfood concentrate product excellent for starting your day and in lieu of snacks or meals throughout the day.

Obviously even if you had access to all these food items no one single person could eat everything mentioned in any reasonable period of time short of finding high potency raw food extract products (the best available anywhere are in our member Store) .
As one respected anti-aging physician friend of OWC likes to say, you cannot eat enough of the right raw foods daily to get the nutrients you need for optimal health without becoming overweight! Nevertheless, you should eat as great a variety of healthy foods as possible since the nutritional value and health benefits of each item varies. And we believe taking raw superfood extracts and related meal replacement powders is part of a good daily supplementation strategy.
See “Conditions” for combinations of foods/herbs used for natural remedies.
