How to Prevent Chronic Disease
A whopping 50% of all Americans, and 80% of adults over 65, have at least one chronic health condition. The good news is that chronic diseases are primarily caused by lifestyle factors, so whether or not you suffer with one is largely in your control. Below is a comprehensive guide for preventing chronic disease, enhancing longevity, and obtaining a state of vibrant health.
Consume the Ultimate Anti-Aging Diet
The fact that your diet plays a key role in your health and longevity is not new news, but there is a lot of conflicting information as to which type of diet is best. Decades of researching medical literature, population studies and patient blood-analysis at the Delgado clinic, allows us to state quite definitively that the best diet for health and longevity is a wholefoods based, vegetarian diet.
The diet should be completely oil-free, and fat should be consumed in moderation from healthy, wholefood sources that have their fiber intact (such as almonds, nuts, seeds and coconuts). You should restrict or eliminate gluten, and aim to consume at least 60-80 grams of fiber a day. It is also important to get a full spectrum of antioxidants and nutrients, and plenty of clean water.
Time constraints in combination with nutrient depleted produce can make getting all the essential nutrients difficult. For added assurance, augment your diet with a superfood powder such as SlimBlend Pro (insert hyerlink here: http://delgadoprotocol.com/product/slim-blend-pro/). SlimBlend Pro is a wholefoods based, 5-in-1 meal replacement that contains an ample serving of fiber, essential fatty acids, protein, raw superfoods, and probiotics.
One final dietary consideration that must be addressed is food sensitivities. Many of us fail to realize that we are suffering from food sensitivities because the symptoms can take up to 72 hours to appear after consuming the intolerant food. Unfortunately, even the healthiest of foods can cause harm if you are intolerant to it, and consuming it regularly can dramatically damage your health. If you have physical or mental symptoms without an obvious explanation (e.g. skin problems, depression, mood swings, fatigue, arthritis etc.), then take an Alletess blood test, which will test your tolerance for 184 of the most commonly consumed foods.
Focus on Love and Positivity
We’re all taught history, geography and math in school, but the curriculum rarely includes how to formulate and maintain loving connections. This is a shame because loving relationships, deep bonds, and a sense of community all play an essential role in quality of life and longevity. You need to love your life and find happiness in what you do. Focus your energies on things that you enjoy and are good at, and if possible, delegate the things you are not so good at to others.
Try to avoid falling into a rut, where every day is the same as the last. Hang out with new friends, take a new route to work, pick-up a new hobby, join a group, try a new recipe, plan a trip to somewhere exotic, and/or explore a nearby landmark that you haven’t yet explored. If you’re not happy in your career devote an hour a day to activities that will move you into the direction of your dream job, with the goal of eventually replacing your current job with your dream career.
It is also important that you understand the power of your thoughts. You have 60,000 thoughts every day — more than half of which are negative, and two-thirds of which are the same thoughts you had the day before. Your mind is a powerful creator of your reality, and what you focus on the most will be created. So focus on your dreams, focus on love, focus on happiness, and focus on health.
Finally, incorporate stress management practices into your daily life. Stress is a major contributor to disease and it can literally damage every facet of your health. Some great stress management practices to incorporate include: yoga, meditation, EFT, deep and focused breathing, cuddling, Epsom salt baths, and any activity that makes you smile and laugh.
Utilize the Power of Nitric Oxide and H2
Free radicals damage and destroy your cells, tissues, and DNA and they are a major cause of aging and disease. Antioxidants help to scavenge free radicals, but the common ones such as vitamin C and E are not powerful enough on their own. Nitric oxide and H2 on the other hand, have unique properties that qualify them as the most potent and effective free radical scavengers on the planet.
Nitric oxide is a small, yet essential molecule that is naturally produced in your body and its production is contingent on the presence of certain nutrients. Most people are very deficient in nitric oxide (NO), and restoring NO levels boosts circulation and heart health, reduces fatigue, and promotes better sleep. It also increases blood flow, and enhances sexual performance and gratification. Perhaps most important of all, NO supports telomere length, which is significant because aging is a direct result of the shortening of telomeres.[i] [ii]

Molecular hydrogen, or H2, is the smallest molecule on the planet, and it has potent anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, anti-allergy, anti-fatigue and cell-protecting properties. There are currently hundreds of studies that have been published confirming the use of H2 therapy for halting the aging process, and helping prevent disease.[iii] H2 is so powerfully therapeutic because it’s tiny size allows it to quickly and easily diffuse into all of the body’s cells and tissue. Also, it functions selectively, meaning that it selects and scavenges only the toxic, disease-causing free radicals, while leaving the helpful ones intact, which is something that no other antioxidants are capable of doing.[iv]

Do yourself and your offspring a favor and think long and hard before agreeing to vaccinations. Your body in its infinite wisdom was designed with a frontline defense against viruses – the immune system. A healthy body reacts to viral exposure by producing antibodies, white blood cells and T killer cells, which fight viruses and render them harmless.
Vaccines stimulate the immune system and are supposed to protect us from viruses and certain diseases such as mumps, measles, and polio. However, the percentage of outbreaks among the vaccinated population is now as high or higher than the unvaccinated population.[v] Booster shots and the use of live (as opposed to dead) viruses are the ‘solution’ to the high infection rate – both of which further damage the immune system.
By damaging the immune system, you reduce your body’s ability to defend itself against the very viruses you are being vaccinated for, and increase your risk for all sorts of diseases and infections. Vaccinations are linked to the onset of food allergies, autoimmune disease and autism.[vi] [vii] There is also evidence linking vaccinations to brain related autoimmune and inflammatory disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), and anorexia.[viii] The safest most effective way to prevent infections and diseases is to optimize your immunity by following a healthy lifestyle.
Spirituality and having a belief in something higher than yourself can help to reduce stress and inflammation, which will positively influence every facet of your health.[ix] Balancing hormones is also essential for healthy aging, and imbalances are common in adults over 30. You should work with a hormone or antiaging specialist and diligently monitor your hormone levels, ensuring they remain in the optimum range. Last but certainly not least, you need to move your body. Find physical activities that you enjoy and aim for a minimum of 60 minutes of movement a day. Try to include strength-building, cardiovascular, and flexibility enhancing activities, because all three are essential for health and longevity.
