Unhealthy Food Will Wreck Your Health In Time...A Short Time!

Preserve, Protect And Improve Your Health, Know What Foods To Avoid, And Understand Why!Where Do We Go Wrong With The Food We Eat?

Today's modern diet of unhealthy food is so lacking in nutrition compared to the food our ancestors ate before the implementation of processed foods that it is literally unhealthy.

With the advancement of technology, most of our foods are processed and manufactured, and even genetically modified.

Our modern and hectic lifestyles have seemingly "forced" many of us to rely heavily on fast foods, or microwaved and even instant meals. We spend less and less time preparing meals at home from fresh foods.

Even the foods that we do prepare in our own kitchen are often nutritionally depleted by the way we heat or cook it including microwaving and thereby making it unhealthy food.

Even regular cooking, destroys the nutrients and enzymes of fruits and vegetables that our bodies must have in order to create the building blocks and energy to maintain and sustain good health and just as importantly to rebuild and repair our body.

I used to be just like most of us. I thought if it was "food" no matter what it was, or how it was prepared...that if I ate it I would be OK.

It was all food...wasn't it? It was all good...wasn't it? Our government wouldn't let anyone poison us...would they?

Over I got older and especially when I became a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine or as many now call it Oriental Medicine...I learned that unhealthy food was severely damaging my health.

You aren't going to believe this but it is true. Do you know what my first decision was to improve my health back in 1982? I chose to eat burgers from Burger King and quit MacDonalds. Want to know what my rationale was? It was because flame broiled burgers must be healthier than burgers fried on a griddle in all that fat. At least flame broiling would allow most of the fat to drip off.

I was 32 years old, weighed 165 lbs...was fit and played tennis and swam laps...what's the big deal! I was going to be 32 years old forever...know what I mean? I'd be healthy no matter what I eat. It was all food and it was all good, right?

Yep...that's where this all began for me...So don't think I don't understand how tough this can all feel.

Even then...years later when I knew more...there were times and things I was learning about that I just couldn't or didn't want to believe at first.

Like the revelation that dairy is extremely unhealthy food. Oriental Medicine said so and had been saying so for thousands of years.

It wasn't until I was diagnosed with Spleen Qi Deficiency with Dampness and phlegm because of all the symptoms I was having and had been having for a long time and was told to stop eating dairy...

...which I did and to my great surprise and amazement my symptoms dramatically improved...that I became aware that the damage dairy was truly doing to me was real and could be reversed by changing what I ate.

Dairy, among other foods, creates dampness and phlegm in the body and can do many bad things like clogging your arteries.

By learning more and more about the damage certain foods were doing to my body, I began making conscious and incremental efforts to change my eating habits.

I want to share with you some of the basic common foods we all eat without being aware of the damaging impact they have on our health. We have been erroneously taught that some of these foods are "healthy".

Here Is A Testimonial I'll Never Forget!:

"I don't care what is wrong with you...see Dr. Eichenauer. He can help you with anything. He helped me with every problem I ever presented him with.

I even had major surgery for a complete bowel obstruction and he got me back to work months faster than the hospital MDs told me was possible.

His herbal formulas worked wonders for me that time as they always do.

When I called him and told him my symptoms that night, Dr. Eichenauer was the one who told me to go straight to the emergency room right away that night when my bowel was obstructed."
