    It started with water. By reading and talking, attending meetings, etc., the principle of drinking many glasses of water every day was put forward as one of the prostate cancer commandments. "It's good to flush the system." Although many items are diametrically opposed, water seemed unshakable in its place of daily diet, that is, until I began studying Macrobiotics. The MB (Macrobiotic) people say that water should only be drank when thirsty - a few glasses each day at most.

I had been leaning toward nature as the key to determining what was right for me, and the water issue pushed me directly toward it. Between what my thought arrived at as appropriate, and what I partook made me feel like, I decided that getting close to nature was the path that I would follow.

What about water? Drinking great amounts of it on a daily basis made me feel bloated, having to pee a lot, and very often uncomfortable. Coupled with water being used in most MB cooking, I now very seldom have a glass by itself. Frankly, Scarlet, I'm not thirsty, and I don't feel like it.

Not much attention is paid to skin when compared to what we put into our bodies, and therein lies the fallacy. The skin is constantly ingesting. Note the allergic reactions we have to certain toxic chemicals when they come in contact with our skin. It seems that most of us don't think about what soaps, creams or other substances we apply might be doing to our skins. I clean my skin on a regular basis and it feels refreshing. Hopefully, its helping me to be healthier.

Massage stimulates the body. When my wife used to give me a foot rub, it felt like many areas of my body were being affected. I'm very interested to know and experience more of what massage is and can do.

Skin should breath. Clothes made of natural materials are recommended.

Exercise is a must. It gets your body going. The blood circulates more rapidly and all organs, muscles and tissue are stimulated. Makes the machinery work better. I've taken the advice of Dr. Andrew Weil: walk. Its cheap, it can be done pretty much anywhere, and it gets your whole system involved. It is generally recommended to exercise at least a half to one hour every other day. Another great exercise is swimming.

Smelly Garbage Ever since being a kid I remember how quickly the kitchen garbage began to smell and had to be taken out within a day or two. These days, as I cook, I keep the lid of the garbage container up since I'm very often required to dispose of vegtable parts, food wrappers, etc. I've noticed that it doesn't smell. So, I did an experiment: I left the top up for several days, and guess what, it still didn't smell. This tells me that the food I'm eating is "clean." What do you think?
