Dr. Ali’s 18 Food Guidelines
(Childrens Health Corporation Has 501 C Tax-Deductable Status)
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 deplete energy.
Avoid foods that cause abnormal bowel responses.
Fourth, Focus on What You Can Eat
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 steamed or stir-fried vegetables.
Reduce acidotic stress on metabolism. (Vegetables are alkaline-ash foods.)
Seventh, Easy, Really Easy on Fruits
Eighth, Increase Proteins in foods
Proteins are building blocks for tissues and for energy and detoxification enzymes.
Minimize meat intake; increase lentils and beans.
Ninth, Favor Alkaline-ash Foods
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
Twelfth, 12. Have free access to ideal snacks
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
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.
Dieting plans are cortical traps.
(Reading food labels becomes unnecessary after some time.)
Sixteenth, Do not omit nutrient supplements
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 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.)
Nutrition Seminar 4 – Nutrient Supplementation Guidelines for vitamin and mineral supplementation, as well as the use of high-value nutrients, such as glutathione, MSM, omema-3 oils, and others. He emphasizes the use of foods as the source of these nutrients.
Nutrition Course Seminar – Breakfast Shake Professor Majid Ali, M.D. presents his own breakfast taken four to five days a week. It consists of organic 12 ounces of vegetable juice and water, two tablespoons each of a protein powder and freshly ground flaxseed, one-and-half tablespoon of lecithin, and 12 ounces of water. He describes its clinical benefits and offers suggestions how to improvise and personalize his recipe.
