Take a look at your inner self

The great biochemist, Dr. Roger J. Williams, assures us:

Each person has a distinctive brain.

There never was anyone like you.

There will never be another.

Ref. (The Wonderful World Within You, Bio-Communications Press / June 1987.)

Your brain and thought patterns are totally yours. No other brain has the same cellular structure or arrangement of neurons. Your brain function and talents are unique.

As an intelligent person you can develop and use your talents as you wish. You can direct your mental, physical, and emotional nature to achieve the goals you desire.

Your genes encode your intelligence, wisdom, and talents. They determine your physical and mental stature. They make you the superb person you are.

A bony, skeletal frame supports your physical body. Bones shape your body with a distinctive architecture – your physical form.

Tendons attach muscle motors to your bones. Through your nervous system, your brain transmits instructions to your muscles. You are wired for action.

Micro power stations in your cells convert food components into carbon dioxide, water and energy. Energy to power your brain, your muscular action – all life-giving processes.

Your circulatory system is an engineering masterpiece. You have a single pump with four muscular chambers. Their automatic pulsations coordinate to circulate your blood.

Imagine! An enclosed, sealed, circulatory system powered by a single pump. No back-up. No external energy source. And it services some 70 trillions of cellular stations along 60,000 miles of biological plumbing.

What’s even more amazing:

3 The entire system continuously repairs, reconstructs, and maintains itself.

3 It will run constantly for 80, 90, and possibly more than 100 years.

3 It has no external source of service.

No scientist or engineer has the ability to design an equivalent system.

Get the Picture

Your body is the most perfect, self-sustaining, fully operational system on the planet.

Thank your Creator for His handiwork. For it’s yours. And you are truly honored. You, alone, are its caretaker.

You must clothe it, house it, feed it, provide it with clean water and air, exercise it, and protect it from harm. To the best of your ability you must provide each cell with essential nutrients.

When nature gave human cells their biochemical programs, your forebears were hunters and gatherers. Virgin, fertile land produced fresh, wholesome food – loaded with essential vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.

People drank clean water directly from lakes, streams, and springs. The air had no industrial pollutants. And it contained more oxygen than our present atmosphere.

To have excellent health today, your genes demand this “stone-age” environment. In all the time from stone-age man until now, human genes have changed very little.

This Presents a Problem

Nowadays food grows on land depleted of essential nutrients. Large corporations process food to extend its shelf-life and increase its sales appeal.

Processing reduces food’s nutritional value and increases the content of additives to totally unacceptable levels. Many food additives are foreign to our bodies.

Water and air are intensely polluted. Even well-water must be purified to make it safe for drinking.

Our atmosphere is a giant sump, where we dump all kinds of gaseous waste products. These include smoke from industrial and domestic chimneys and the ever-present exhaust from gasoline, diesel, and jet engines.

In this environment – difficult as it is – you must strive to protect your body from toxins. You must provide the nutrients your genes require.

Nutritional deficiencies cause many of life’s disasters. Deficiency of only one essential, minor nutrient can lead to illness and death.
