The Secret to Keeping your body in an alkaline state

Temple Beautiful Mail Magazine No.446 (2012.6.29)


In Japan, we talk about foods being Ying and Yang.
However, Edgar Cacye talks about food being alkaline or the acidic balance of food.

The meals that Edgar Cayce says is ideal is one that is 80% alkaline and 20% acidic. This means that around 80% of our food should be vegetables and fruits. And in particular green leafy vegetables are important. In Chinese medicine, following the Ying and Yang balance, raw vegetables and fruits are Ying food, and they say we should not eat too much of this, because it is too Ying.

However, according the Cayce remedies, these foods are very important for keeping the body alkaline, and we should eat a lot of them, especially at lunch.

Edgar Cayce says that bacteria and viruses cannot increase or spread in a body that is in an alkaline state. So if we come into contact with someone who has flu for example, we needn't worry, so long as we keep our body in an alkaline state. Edgar Cayce also said that cancer patients should eat a lot of alkaline food in each meal each day. If our blood pH level is alkaline, then the percent of oxygen in the blood is also very high. Also, we can eliminate contaminants in the blood more easily if the blood is in an alkaline state. The proteolytic enzyme work more effectively in alkaline blood. So if you are suffering from poor health, Cayce recommends that you eat more raw food, and bring your body back to an alkaline state.

In summary;

1. As long as our body is in an alkaline state, viruses cannot increase within our body.
2. Our cells stay healthy, and can regenerate more smoothly.
3. Contaminants and waste products are eliminated from the body more
effectively.

Recently, I met someone who was caring for someone who had a stroke. Her husband had a stroke and couldn't move, and she was taking care of him. She told me that at his first his oxygen concentration in the blood was 84%, but every day she made a lot of vegetable juice for him. He drinks fresh vegetable juice every day. And his oxygen concentration in his blood is now in the high nineties, and close to 100%. She said she was so surprised by the power of this raw vegetable juice and her husband's condition has really improved.

I believe that even if you only eat fresh fruit and vegetables once a week, you will see a small improvements in your health. Furthermore if you eat fresh fruit and vegetables once a day, you will see an even greater improvement in your health.

People often tell me that they don't eat fresh fruit and raw vegetables every day, especially in winter.

I have good news! Our body makes acid not just from food. Our body makes acid from negative emotions, such as anger, stress, frustration and so on. These emotions cause our body to create an acidic state. And if we eat too fast, or
if we are constipated, we also will find that our body is in a more acidic state.

On the other hand, laughter, joy, and gratitude create the opposite effect and make our body more alkaline.

In the past, I did some experiments.
We licked some litmus paper, to make sure our body was in an acidic state. Then we laughed a lot, and then we licked the litmus paper again, and the result showed us that our body had turned alkaline. This was the result of just a few minutes of laughter!

In other words, even if you are eating an alkaline diet, but each day you are experiencing negative emotions such as anger, regret and stress, then your body will return to an acidic state. However, if you eat a lot of acidic food, but live a happy, joyful life and laugh a lot, your body will be in an alkaline state.

A long time ago, I read a book by Norman Cousins, An Anatomy of Illness, and in it he talked about how he could cure his disease by laughing a lot. I believe he was able to cure himself because he could strengthen his immune system and because he was able to turn his blood pH level to alkaline because he was always laughing.

We are humans, and living each day can bring stress and negativity. It is hard to live each day in a state of joy and happiness, and this is why I believe we need to eat more alkaline foods, but not only that, we must laugh often, as laughter is very important! If you are able to find the humor even in a negative situation, then you will be able to keep your blood in an alkaline state more easily.

I believe that this kind of lifestyle, eating alkaline foods and being joyful and laughing often, can lead to a positive spiral, and improvements in our health. Summer time is a good season to eat more raw food and fruits.

So let's try eating more raw foods and laughing more in our daily life. This is the secret to keeping our bodies healthy!

My story of the time, Temple Beautiful starting



This year(2006) Temple Beautiful is having it's 10th anniversary.

As we say, "Ten years can bring a lot of changes". It feels like I started Temple Beautiful more than ten years ago since so many things have happened.

I started Temple Beautiful in 1996, it was ten years ago. But before this, I started an office which was the foundation of Temple Beautiful called "DIN mail-order department".

Does anyone remember this name?
If you do, you have been our customer for more than ten years! Thank you for shopping with us for such a long time!

The reason for me to start a mail-order service of Cayce products was very simple.

When I started the Edgar Cayce Center in Japan with other volunteers, I was told that "We need a department to supply oils for the remedies to our members. Since ECCJ is a Non-Profit Organization, it would be great if someone did it individually."

So I said, "My work is the closest to the center, so I'll do it." It all began with my volunteering.
* In those days, the Cayce Center in Japan was renting a room in the building of my uncle's company and the tenant agency which I was working for was only 30 seconds away on foot. So I stopped in at the Cayce Center on my way home to do various chores.

But in the mail-order business, it's better to have a company name instead of an individual name, so I asked the same uncle to create a department in his company, and borrowed a phone line to make a start.

Simply put, the Cayce Center and the mail-order dept. were intermingled at my uncle's company. On weekdays, I worked at both. On weekends, other volunteer staff came to do the Center's work.

Later, I left my day job and became a full-time staff member of the Cayce Center. I continued the mail-order work too.

Even though I became a full-time staff member, it was almost treated as volunteer work, so I was paid 30,000 yen a month.

The mail-order business was a part of my uncle's company, so they paid me 30,000 yen a month.

In my 30s, I started to live on 60,000 yen per month. Of course I couldn't pay for the national pension.

There is a TV program about "Binbo-san" in which contestants brag about how poor they are. I didn't have to worry about the rent since I was living with my brother, but I could have been on the show if they had the program back then.

Like this, I spent two years doing more or less volunteer work, then I developed the mail-order business using one desk for Temple Beautiful with an office when my brother got married. Of course, I'd spent all the savings from my office worker days by that time. I had no deposit in my bank account, and no fund for opening a business.

When I look back, I think it was crazy to start my own business in such a financial state. But it's kind of praiseworthy how bold I was…


Well, I'd like to introduce the story of the time of the opening.

This time, it's going to be mostly about money…
Thus, I started the business without any funds so I had difficulty revolving funds every month.

The office and home I rented in Koenji had a big space including massage room and costed 240,000 yen a month…

It was a miracle for someone who was making only 60,000 yen a month to be able to live in a 240,000 yen a month apartment. But this miraculous happening didn't change the fact that I had no money.

I had to pay the monthly rent and purchase the products. Whether I sold anything or not, the payment due dates would come, every 5th, 10th, 20th and at the end of the month! I was scraping together all the money I had out of my accounts, even less than 1,000 yen to pay.

For a small business which had only just started and had no reputation, keeping the payment due dates was the only way to earn the trust of the suppliers. So I wanted to keep them desperately, even though just after opening, I was short of funds at the end of every month. I used to call my mother back home to lend me 100,000 or 200,000 yen for just five days and that's how I was managing it.

But at last, the day had come. The month that I didn't know how I could manage. I calculated in the middle of that month and realized that I was lacking 800,000 yen. Even after adding the expected payments from the customers and monthly sales, it was still lacking 800,000 yen.

I could ask my mother when it was 100,000 or 200,000 yen, but this time the amount was too much to ask. So I really didn't know what to do. Also, the biggest supplier I had to make a payment to at the end of the month was very strict about keeping dates. When there was no payment made on the day, they'd call the following day at 9 am to urge to pay. I had already had that call twice, so I wanted to avoid that somehow.

Back then, there was no internet nor websites. Also, I didn't even know the word "marketing" until two years after I started the business, so I had no idea how I could increase the sales of 800,000 yen by the end of the month…

So I ended up praying! I've never prayed that hard before or after that time. Day after day, I begged God. I said "I'm lacking 800,000 yen this month. Please help me".
Do you want to know if my prayers were heard?
Yes, they were!

Soon, one customer made an order worth 170,000 yen. Then, another customer made an order worth 150,000 yen. (I still remember the name of the first customer with the 170,000 yen order. Thank you so much!)

When this happened I felt that I was saved and I could make the payments just in time at the end of the month.

…By the way, I have a digression on this story.
When I could see the possibility of making the 800,000 yen payment, I received another invoice. It was for 120,000 yen by the 5th of the following month.

Then I thought to myself, "I should have asked God for 920,000 yen!"

Why Mr. Hiroyuki Itsuki Isn’t Bald

Temple Beautiful Mail Magazine No.13 (2003.7.18)


A little while ago, I got an email from a man, and he said that within his company, the rate of baldness among his male coworkers is very high and is increasing. He wanted to know what I thought the reason might be. I don’t remember exactly what I replied to him, but I thought it might be related to stress, their DNA, but also perhaps they are using too much shampoo. In addition, too much fatty food can
increase the rate of baldness.

For men, the fear of going bald is a lot greater than most women realize. Several years ago, when I first started Temple Beautiful, I worked at the office and at home. Sometimes I got phone calls very early in the morning, around 7 or 7:30am. It was usually an urgent phone call from a man, worried about losing their hair. They wanted to know how to care for their hair based on the Edgar Cayce readings.

This is a true story… and I don’t know why they called so early in the morning. Perhaps they read some book the night before, and wanted to know more. Or perhaps, they looked in the mirror in the morning, and noticed they were losing hair. I don’t know, but the phone was always ringing in the early morning. I worried that it might be my parents or friends and that something had happened, but it was always a man worried about losing their hair!

When I talked with cosmetic companies that produce shampoo, he said people in the beginning, when they first started selling shampoo, people washed their hair only once a week. Now people tend to wash their hair every night. Shampoo has very strong cleansing agents in it, and washing too much can cause the natural oils of the hair and scalp to be destroyed. Shampooing too often can cause a lot of damage
and oil loss.

But we are human, and we feel we need to wash our hair and scalp often. If we don’t, we worry that our hair might be greasy, or smelly, or that we might suffer from dandruff. Washing only once a week seems like nonsense to us.

Recently though, I read a book by Mr. Hiroyuki Itsuki, and thought this was very interesting for everybody.

Mr. Ituski said that he washes his hair only 4 times a year!! He also said that when he was young, he only washed his hair twice a year! If he were completely bald, and had a shaved head, I could understand this, but in fact, he has very thick, lustrous, shoulder length shaggy hair. And when I was a teenager, I was a big fan of his books. Looking at him now, I realize that his hair has not changed at all since then.

I wonder if he really only washed his hair once or twice a year, then surely his hair smelled bad… but he is a famous author, and often meets with many people, in very close and intimate situations. So I can’t imagine that he smells bad! He is a nice looking guy, wearing Armani suits and shoes, the idea that he smells bad, is just silly.

In his book, his said his dandruff is hardened on his scalp, like a tundra of Siberia, so he isn’t worried about dandruff. The only thing he does with his hair, is a massage every night and morning. He doesn’t brush his hair. He didn’t talk in any more detail than that, but it seems to be an effective way to keep a full head of hair! So how about trying his way of avoiding hair loss? This is summer time, so it is a good chance to try it – you can try it during summer vacation and you won’t have to worry about if it smells! It might be itchy at first, but after a few months, your scalp will become like a tundra of Siberia and you won’t have to dandruff or bad smells after
that.
