18 Food Guidelines for Health and Healing

Dr. Ali’s 18 Food Guidelines

(Childrens Health Corporation Has 501 C Tax-Deductable Status) 

Below,  I present in simplest words a brief outline of 18 specific recommendations. I explain the clinical and scientific basis of these guidelines in a large free-access internet library designated “Dr. Ali’s Health and Healing Library” which includes a large number short videos, 40-minute to 90-minute video seminars and DVDs, as well articles, momographs,  and books. 
I cannot overstate the case for a sound philosophy of nutrition. Martyrdom in food choices does not work. Good nutrition is neither denial of dieting nor euphoria of eating.
One cannot eat well for a full life span except through a deep visceral-intuitive sense about how various foods affect his general level of energy and well-being.
This cannot come from cortical obsessions about studying foods charts and calorie tables.

First, Seek steady-state energy metabolism.

Avoid starving-gorging-starving cycles.
Avoid sugar-insulin-adrenaline roller coasters

Second, Maintain an Optimal state of Hydration

Drink 50 to 70 ounces of high-compatibility fluids every day.
Drink fluids even when you are not thirsty.

Third, Know Your Food Reactivities and Sensitivities

Avoid foods that cause allergic reactions.
Avoid foods that deplete energy.
Avoid foods that cause abnormal bowel responses.

Fourth, Focus on What You Can Eat

De-focus foods that should be avoided.
Try new foods, observe their effects.
Think high-compatibility foods when food-shopping.

Fifth, Please, Please, Never Miss Your Breakfast
Body tissues need to be energized in the morning.
Missing breakfast is fasting for 15 to 18 hours and sets us up for nutritional roller coasters.
Missing breakfast increases the need for undesirable stimulants such as coffee and tea.

Sixth, Get Most From Your Vegetables

Develop a taste for uncooked vegetables. (Taste is changeable.)
Develop a taste for steamed or stir-fried vegetables.
Reduce acidotic stress on metabolism. (Vegetables are alkaline-ash foods.)

Seventh, Easy, Really Easy on Fruits

Fruit juices are fertilizers for yeast and yeast-like fermenting microbes in the body.
Fruit fans the fires of insulin toxicity.
You can reduce the bad effects of fructose (fruit sugar) by eating fruit along with healthy fats and proteins (go to http://www.alidiabetes.org for detailed information).
Overripe and very sweet fruit creates sugar spikes followed by insulin spikes.


Eighth, Increase Proteins in foods

Proteins are time-release energy sources.
Proteins are building blocks for tissues and for energy and detoxification enzymes.
Minimize meat intake; increase lentils and beans.

Ninth, Favor  Alkaline-ash Foods

Favor vegetables on the top of the vegetable table (Chronic fatigue states are states of acidotic overload. All biologic stressors increase acidotic stress.
SAD [standard American diet] increases the body acid burden.)

Tenth, Minimize Acid-Ash Foods

Reduce intake of all meats.
Grains are, in general, acid-ash foods, but are needed to balance the alkalinity of vegetables and fruits.


Eleventh 11. Know Well That Food Craving Is Caused by Excess Insulin

Understand food cravings.
Food craving is the other side of the coin of food addiction.
Reduce salt intake.

Reduce sugar intake.
Reduce intake of artificial sweeteners. (Salt, sugar and sweeteners increase
sugar cravings.)

Twelfth,  12. Have free access to ideal snacks

The ideal snacks: uncooked or steamed vegetables.
Eat low-fructose fruits — those that are not very sweet.
Soynuts, pumpkin, sunflower and other seeds are also recommended.
Avoid walnuts and other tree nuts. (Tree nuts are among the most allergenic foods.)


Thirteenth, Rotate Foods

High-compatibility foods may be eaten on three or less days a week.
Low-compatibility foods should not be eaten more often than once a week.

Fourteenth, Ensure Healthy Gut Ecology.

Seed the bowel with healthful lactic-acid-producing microbes.
Feed the lactic-acid producers with nutrients such as pantothenic acid, vitamin B12, fructose oligosaccharides and others.
Weed out the toxin-producing microbes such as yeasts, bacteria and parasites.

Fifteenth, Eat Limbically.

Follow visceral-intuitive impulses.
Dieting plans are cortical traps.
(Reading food labels becomes unnecessary after some time.)

Sixteenth, Do not omit nutrient supplements

Take morning supplements with breakfast.
Take evening supplements with dinner.
Split daily supplements into three, four or more portions if problems of tolerance exist.
Pollutants in the air can only be neutralized by nutrients.
Contaminants in food can only be neutralized by nutrients.
Toxins in water can only be neutralized by nutrients.

Seventeenth,  Don’t be a skunk in someone’s garden party.

It is not necessary.
It is not desirable.
Enzyme detoxification systems can cope with an occasional workout —
but only occasionally.

Eighteenth, Living One’s Prayer

for some spiritual dimension in one’s day.

(Martyrdom doesn’t work in nutrition. Good nutrition is neither the denial of dieting
nor the euphoria of eating.)
