Last night we went to see Dr Brian Clement from the Hippocrates Health Institute speaking about “the science of living foods” at Vantra, one of London’s few restaurants focused around raw vegan food. It was great to be reminded of some amazing truths I seem to have forgotten. These included the importance of:

 

B12 supplements — Why did I stop taking this? I can’t remember but I took one today: Solgar sublingual … 

Sprouting — especially broccoli, cabbage, onion and garlic – I’ve ordered some organic broccoli seeds to sprout from Living Food of St Ives. These sulphur—rich vegetables contain a phyto-nutrient called sulforaphan which is super fabulous and particularly so when sprouted.

Bluegreen algae — one of the richest sources of chlorophyll, a well-known agent for its antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and blood building benefits. I’ve just ordered some from Kiki Health.

The Gandhi approach: being happy and living your dreams — What was the most important aspect of the talk? Being happy. Living your dreams. Loving what you do and therefore doing well. I have my down times, times when I feel a bit sorry for myself for whatever reason, but I absolutely believe in the importance of hopefulness.
