The information provided here is designed for you to live longer and better, live healthier and happier, with Longevity Zen of Health of Masters and Millionaires... the best Longevity shortcuts... of masters, millionaires, champions and billionaires.


Best: Use high-fiber foods like wheat bran that keep the stool soft and bulky .A British medical survey tagged peas, cabbage, cauliflower, green beans, brussels sprouts, and tomatoes as anti- appendicitis foods. Use vermifuge for a three-week period every year to clean out parasites.

AVOID: animal fat, low-fiber processed foods, sugar, and popcorn.


Rheumatoid: seafood high in omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, sardines, lake trout, and mackerel may prevent or relieve the pain and swelling. Fish oils dramatically prevent lupus in animals. Use Lipid Liquitrophic daily. Osteo: dairy products, all allergy foods & sugar, potatoes.


Coffee: a couple of strong cups can thwart an asthma attack. Also good bronchodilators -hot pungent foods such as chili peppers, garlic, onions, mustard, horseradish. Fish oils also dramatically relieve bronchial asthma.

AVOID: dairy foods and all allergy- causing foods.


For overall prevention: green leafy vegetables, with emphasis on these six -broccoli, spinach, cabbage, kale, brussels sprouts and leaf lettuce. Other high-fiber vegetables, fruits, grains, and legumes. Also, radishes, chard, tomatoes, citrus fruits, dried fruits (apricots, prunes, raisins), strawberries and fish high in omega-3 fatty acids may help prevent various kinds of cancer. Garlic, onions, kelp, olive oil, tea (especially green tea), as well as seed foods, such as legumes, nuts, rice, and grains, are rich in anticancer chemicals. Fresh and raw: plenty of vegetables, juices, and fiber are best.

: carrots, milk, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, coleslaw, kale, parsnips, turnips.

Breast: yogurt. Fruits and vegetables high in carotenoids.

Colon: green leafy vegetables, notably cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts. Also cauliflower. Acidophilus milk or yogurt, especially that made with acidophilus culture. Wide mixture of vegetable juices. Wheat bran.

Esophagus: green and yellow vegetables, apples, cherries, grapes, melons, onions, peas, beans, plums, pumpkin. Larynx: green and yellow vegetables.

Lung: carrots, kale, spinach, broccoli, dark-yellow squash, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, apricot. All dark-green and dark-orange vegetables, red and yellow fruits high in carotenoids. If you have ever smoked, load up on these foods. They may help prevent lung cancer years later.

Pancreatic: Citrus fruits, and carrots, are hugely beneficial to the pancreas.

Prostate: #FFFF00 and green vegetables. Carrots, tomatoes, cabbage, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, peas, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, bee pollen. Reduce stress.

Stomach: raw carrots, coleslaw, lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes, corn, eggplant, milk, onion, sweet potatoes, squash.
AVOID: high-fat and meat diets (which predispose to cancer), sugar, processed foods, overeating. Oriental herb formulas with Degex and Degex Liquescence enhance the results.

Cardiovascular System

For good cardiovascular nutrition, try fatty fish, garlic, ginger, melon, tree ear mushrooms, olive oil, onion, and kelp. Green tea, beer, wine, currants, blueberries, eggplant, and omega-3 fatty fish ( salmon, sardines) will strengthen and protect arteries and capillaries from damage due to atherosclerosis or heart attack. Use Lipid Liquitrophic.

AVOID: fat, sugar, excess alcohol, stress, processed carbohydrates and excess cholesterol.


Tea is nature's best proved anti-cavity mouthwash. Other foods good at combatting cavity-producing bacteria: grape and black cherry juice, milk, coffee, cheese (aged cheddar cheese, bleu, Brie, Gouda, Monterey Jack, mozzarella, and Swiss ). Use with a good cavity- fighting dental program.

AVOID: sugar, raisins, processed carbohydrates.


To Reduce Bad LDL(Low -Density Lipoprotein) Cholesterol

Best are oat bran and guar gum. Use Lipid Liquitrophic. Next, oatmeal and dried beans, including plain old baked beans.

Soybeans are great for adults and kids with genetically-induced high cholesterol. Grapefruit -segments and membrane, not the juice -drives down cholesterol. Also fresh oranges, apples, yogurt, skim milk, carrots, garlic, onions, barley, ginger, eggplant, artichoke, unripe plantain, shiitake mushrooms, olive oil.

Substitute seafood, including shellfish, for meat and chicken. All fruits high in pectin, which includes strawberries and bananas.

Use unsaturated margarine oils instead of butter ( see better butter recipe ).

AVOID: processed or fried foods and cholesterol-rich foods, red meat, rich sauce.

To Raise Good HDL

(High-Density Lipoprotein) Cholesterol Use strong, raw onions -at least half a medium onion a day -and garlic. Use Lipid Liquitrophic. Substitute olive oil for other vegetable oils or saturated fats. Alcoholic drinks, such as wine or spirits in moderation, one or two drinks a day -also boost HDLS. Radishes, horseradish and pepper help.

ADDED ADVICE: cut back on total fat (especially saturated fats like animal-type fat, and coconut and palm oils). This enhances the effects of the above natural cholesterol-fighters. Donít eat only cooked food; get fresh and raw foods into your diet.


Drink five eight-ounce glasses of good water a day. Use wheat bran, natureís most potent bulk laxative. If that doesnít work, add pure juice. Dried beans work wonders on some people. Most high-fiber fruits and vegetables, like carrots, cabbage, and apples, are bulk laxatives with about one quarter the effect of wheat bran. Soluble fiber foods, like oats and barley, can help. Also kelp, grapefruit parts and juice are helpful. Misconception: American- type rhubarb is not a true laxative. Oriental type medicinal rhubarb is excellent.


Use foods that produce slow, steady increases instead of rapid rises in blood sugar levels. Such foods testing best on the "glycemic index" ( a measure of how quickly foods raise blood sugar) are, in order: peanuts, soybeans, lentils, kidney beans, black-eyed peas, milk, chickpeas, yogurt, ice cream, appleas, and baked beans.
AVOID: ALL processed sugars.


Comfey pepsin helps. Try yogurt with live cultures (especially if the diarrhea is caused by prescription antibiotics, such as penicillin, which is common with children especially). Also, blueberries, black currants, honey (not for infants, however, because of a botulism danger). For youngsters, more acidophilus whole milk may be a cure. Too little fat in a child's diet promotes diarrhea and a variety of intestinal infections. Soy milk of soybeans also may help fight diarrhea-causing bacteria.
AVOID: all foods known to cause or annoy allergies.

Diverticular Disease

First, we encourage wheat bran. Also other foods high in fiber that give the stool bulk, such as legumes, oats, cabbage, carrots, and apples. If you already have the disease, check with a physician before loading up on high fiber .

AVOID: strawberries, popcorn and other foods with small seeds and shells that could aggravate the condition. Use foods with solid A -D liquid bran. Solid grains, liquid fruit, vegetables in between.

Emphysema and Chronic Bronchitis

Chili peppers, pungent garlic, onions, mustard, horseradish -all kinds of hot, spicy foods. These help keep the lungs healthy by keeping mucus flowing and the bronchial tubes open. Drinking small amounts of milk has also been tied to lower rates of chronic bronchitis. Fresh, raw fruits and vegetables, and juice are helpful.

AVOID: milk in excess or with meals, smoking and smokers, all allergy-causing foods.

Energy (Mental)

Caffinated drinks stimulate mental performance. Coffee is the most potent. Also tea, colas, cocoa. Also boosting mental-energy brain chemicals are high-protein, low fat foods such as shellfish, lean fish, non-fat milk, and yogurt. Include avocado, starchy beans, sprouts, and fruit juices. A void: white sugar .It makes blood sugar fluctuate too much.


Eat foods that produce a soft, bulky stool, reducing strain in bowel movements.

Best: wheat bran. Other high-fiber fruits and vegetables. Radishes help liver involvement.

AVOID: liver burdening foods, fried and fatty foods, and alcohol.

High Blood Pressure

One tablespoon of cream of tartar in eight ounces of natural lime juice once or twice a day is an excellent formula. Mackerel -a couple of cans a week -can depress blood pressure. Also oat bran and high-fiber fruits and vegetables of all types help.

Shown also to push down blood pressure: olive oil, garlic, seaweed (kelp ), yogurt, green tea, legumes, and milk. Surprisingly, coffee drinking does not cause or aggravate high blood pressure except, apparently, among smokers. It is shown in clinical experiments that diets rich in natural potassium and low in sodium, such as fruits, vegetables and paprika, are as effective as most medications.


Tomatoes and potatoes can aggravate this condition, and thus should be avoided in extreme cases. Always avoid processed sugar. Eat complex carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables.

Infections (General)

Yogurt and garlic are recognized antibiotic superstars.. Also potent in thwarting viruses and bacteria are orange juice, apples tea, grape juice, apple juice, honey, wine, blueberries, cranberries, grapes, plums, raspberries, strawberries, peaches, and figs.

AVOID: processed carbohydrates and sugars, stress, toxins, antibiotics.


Fresh fruits and vegetables -even an extra senring a day, according to one study -may cut the risk of stroke-associated death by 40%. In animal studies, compounds from black currants and blueberries helped prevent disease of blood vessels in the brain. Brown seaweed has prevented strokes in rodents.
AVOID: cholesterol-rich foods, processed carbohydrates.


Plantains ( unripe, large and green, especially in concentrated powder form) combat ulcers. Whole milk and yogurt, which contain drug-Iike protective prostaglandins in the fat may prevent ulcers. Fresh cabbage juice heals or wards off ulcers in some people.
AVOID: heavy spices, rich, hot stimulating foods; excess alcohol.

Urinary Tract Problems | Kidneys

Drink five glasses ( eight ounces each) of good water every day. Cranberries, includingjuice, cocktail, and whole cranberries can prevent cystitis, help deodorize the urine, and help prevent kidney stones. Effective dose: half a cup to two cups of cocktail per day. Oniega-3 type fish oils may help prevent kidney diseases. Rice bran -- about two thirds of an ounce a day can prevent kidney stones. To prevent stones, take eight ounces of the following formula: 1/3 applejuice, 1/3 lemonjuice and 1/3 juniper tea twice a day.

AVOID: sugars, processed foods, too much spinach.


A sure bet: fruit, sugar or honey. Eat yogurt before bed. Misconception: milk does not put you to sleep; just the opposite, it wakes you up.

AVOID: stimulants such as coffee, tea, and heavy foods before bed.

Migraine Headache

Oils in fish (omega-3's) can prevent the onset and severity of migraines in some cases. Use Lipid Liquitrophic and Headache formula from Dr. Recommends.

AVOID: cold foods like ice cream, red wine, food with salycilates or other additives.

Motion Sickness

Take ginger root, about half a teaspoon powdered in capsules, in tea or another beverage about a half hour before exposure to motion.


Drinking milk when you are young makes stronger bones, less - susceptible to osteoporosis in later years. Use Osteo Liquitrophic. Green, leafy vegetables and sprouts are excellent; better if juiced.

Psoriasis and Skin Inflammation

Seafood high in omega-3 fatty acids; salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel, etc., may relieve psoriasis. Also oatmeal packs reduce skin inflammation. Vitamin A-supplying fresh fruits and vegetables are good in raw or juice form. NOTE: For excellent, fast relief of psoriasis, wet it, oil it, and get ten minutes of sun. Within 22 days or so, you will have up to 100 percent remission.

FOR EMERGENCY SKIN RELIEF;Just submerge the affected area in cold or icy water. Aaahh!

AVOID: processed foods, fatty or fried foods, all processed sugars, allergy-causing foods.
