For years, triglycerides, a sneaky kind of limpid fat in our blood, hid in the shadows and many in the medical field ignored them as a threat to healthy hearts. During that same time period, two voices – Paul and Patricia Bragg – provided clear warnings about the dangers of high triglyceride levels. In their best-selling book, Apple Cider Vinegar: Miracle Health System, they stated that apple cider vinegar was one of the best wholistic weapons against the accumulation of fat in our blood streams.
It turns out that Paul and Patricia were right on both counts. Medical scientists are now agreeing that high triglyceride levels are an indicator of looming heart disease – the number one killer in the United States.
“If you’ve been keeping an eye on your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, there’s something else you might need to monitor; your triglycerides,” stated a recent article sponsored by the Mayo Clinic. “Having a high level of triglycerides in your blood can increase your risk of heart disease,” which causes about one in fourth deaths in the US each year.
In the past, few doctors paid attention to triglycerides, but medical research now supports what Paul and Patricia have said for decades. It has become an indicator that medical professionals are now taking quite seriously.
Apple cider vinegar, which offers an extraordinarily wide range of health benefits from healing damaged skin to helping prevent gall stones, has been found in medical tests to reduce triglyceride levels. A study from Japan, for example found that: “Body weight, BMI, visceral fat area, waist circumference, and serum triglyceride levels were significantly lower in both vinegar intake groups.” The 12-week study concluded that daily intake of apple cider vinegar could also be useful in the reduction of obesity.
The dangers of high triglycerides are finally being taken seriously, as Paul and Patricia Bragg recommended for decades. There are many other health issues discussed in the Apple Cider Vinegar Book – you can get your copy inside!
(Excerpt from WATER, THE SHOCKING TRUTH)
The most important factors that make for a healthier, happier, longer life are:
• Pure, unpolluted air and practicing deep breathing.
• Drinking pure distilled water that is free from harmful chemicals, toxins and inorganic minerals. Ideal is 8 glasses per day for body maintenance and health.
• Eating natural, organically grown foods is best.
The two most important substances on this earth are air and WATER! Water is perhaps the single most characteristic substance of our miracle planet. It may simultaneously appear in solid, liquid and gaseous forms. It has been adapted as a unit of measure for the specific gravity of all other substances. Water plays important roles in the circulation of the earth’s surface elements.
Man must have water or he soon dies! Consider the shipwrecked sailor on a great ocean of salt water – if this man does not get fresh salt-free water, he dies. The man who gets lost in the dry, hot desert soon dies of dehydration if he does not get water. Thirst can drive him insane before he endures an agonizing death.
Certain animals – squirrels, rabbits, etc. that feed on grasses and herbs containing about 85% water never need a drink as long as they can find their natural wild food.
Mother’s milk contains about 87% water; juicy fruits and succulent vegetables also possess almost the same percentage of fluid. Those who consume ample amounts of fresh fruit daily absorb, in addition to about 8 ounces of solid food, at least 3 pints of living, naturally purified water, distilled by Mother Nature.
Water is one of the most important substances on the face of the earth. Without it, all life – from plants to humans and to all animals – would cease to exist!
(Excerpt from VEGETARIAN HEALTH RECIPES)
Ordinarily, cookbooks have a stereotyped sequence. First come the tables of measurement, then the soups, salads, etc. To my mind, no recipe book can start without flavor as a basis – and especially no health food recipe book. In cooking for health, the pleasure of well-savored flavor is almost as important as nutritional quality, as it makes mealtime more enjoyable, which also helps with digestion. Good cooking is the combination of two great fields of human experience: science and art. The science of food tells us what good nutrition is. The art of preparing food requires
learning the art of flavor. Using fresh herbs and Bragg Sprinkle(24 herbs & spices) and Bragg Kelp Seasoning, garlic and 100% organically grown fresh foods are always the best.
Flavor can only be as good as the stock from which it is based. Good stock, properly used, is the difference between excellent and mediocre cooking. When the stock (or consommé) is excellent, the creation of fine flavor is easy. When food lacks flavor, meals can taste flat and dull. In foreign lands, mention of stock in a cookbook would be superfluous. However, in our culture it is a little-known and seldom practiced principle of the basic art of cooking. There are several reasons for this: unless a great deal can be prepared at a time, the cooking of stock is time-consuming. You can make three quarts at one time, freeze some in ice cube trays, and transfer to freezer bags to use as-needed for small amounts. Place remaining stock in jars and refrigerate. It’s always best to put dates on all stored food items!

(Excerpt from SUPER POWER BREATHING)
The breath of life means exactly what it says: To breathe is to live; not to breathe is to die. A human can exist without food for weeks, go without water for days, but one can’t exist for more than a few minutes without air! This fact is so obvious and breathing is so automatic that most people take it for granted. Yet, do you really know how to breathe? Stop and think about it. Do you really know how your lungs function? Do you use these
marvelous organs to their fullest? The way you use your lungs controls your life, your health, your looks, your energy, your resistance to disease – your very life span!
As health specialists with over a century of combined effort, we have developed techniques for measuring mental and physical energy in humans. Everyone lives at a certain rate of vibration. The human body is capable of reaching a high vibration energy level; unfortunately many never master what it takes to achieve this. Why? Because only a few know how to generate, utilize and replenish their full capacity of body and mind energy! High vibration energy people are doers and achievers. They display seemingly inexhaustible vitality and stamina, creative power and/or athletic ability of the highest quality. They never seem to tire. They perform mental and physical tasks without strain or excessive emotion. To high vibration achievers, everything seems easy and effortless because they have more vital power!
(Excerpt from MIRACLE OF FASTING)
Every thinking person must at one time or another say to himself, “Am I getting the most out of life?” The great comedian, Ed Wynn said, “Without your health, riches, possessions and fame are all mud.” What is a man without health, even though endowed with riches and fame? Riches cannot buy health and happiness. Just because a person has achieved fame, it does not follow that he is healthy and happy! I do not discredit success and riches! I think money and possessions have a place in our lives. Physical comforts and luxuries are important to most people. Take away a man’s wealth and give him only health and his first desire will be the return of his riches.
However with both achieved, a word remains which we hate to utter; a thought we dread to contemplate; a thing which gives sorrow, pain and grief. That word, that thought, that thing, is death! Even in cases where life appears a burden, how tenaciously does man cling to it! How the spirit recoils from a struggle with death! How fondly it retains its grasp on life! Man’s great desire is for health and long life on earth; “Man clings to the world as his home, and would want to live here forever, if he had health and long-lasting youthfulness.”

Suppose a magician suddenly appeared before you and promised you a marvelous machine which could run itself, direct itself, repair itself, perform remarkable mental and physical feats . . . and would last for about 120 years (Genesis 6:3) and maybe more. Would you treasure such a machine? Of course you would! You would
keep it in top condition in order to obtain and enjoy a maximum of service. Daily you would be astonished anew by the performance of this miracle-machine! True, this is an age of computers, biotechnology and other modern mechanical, scientific and outer space marvels. Remember that the supreme tribute we can
pay to any machine is to say, It is almost human. Now, stop and think! Our Creator has presented you with the world’s most miraculous machine – your own body! This incredible factory has its own non-stop motor (the heart), its own fueling system (the digestive system), its own human filtration system (the kidneys), its own thinking computer (brain and nervous system), and its
own temperature controls (sweat glands), etc.

The Basics of Foot Functions
Almost all of us are born with perfect feet. It’s the abuse millions give their feet that makes them limp into adulthood crying, “My aching feet are killing me!” The foot is a complex, elegant and delicately balanced miracle mechanism. Perfect balance is essential
to foot comfort, and maintenance of this balance depends upon healthy natural foot function and a healthy body. Almost all types of shoes made disturb the delicate balance of the feet, some to the extent that they cannot endure the jars and missteps in addition to walking on the hard city streets which can also upset the normal foot function. This results in either tension or locking of the joints, painful strain in the arches, muscles and limitation of foot motion or a combination of these disturbances. The direct consequence is a growing discomfort: aches and pains in feet, legs, knees, thighs and back!
