Why a Clean Colon Is the Key to Health: 5 Steps to Keep You in the Clear
My favorite one – just couldn’t get it clean!
So I looked on the Net and found someone say you could throw it in the washer but not let it go to the spin cycle.
I sprayed it with spray n’ wash first, pressed the “rinse and hold” button and it came out beautifullly! Left it outside
in the sun to dry all day and it looks ABSOLUTELY like new. I can’t believe it!
“Air Quality and Diet”, Article by Matt Monarch
There are many lifestyle improvements that a person can make that are beneficial to the human body. Some of these lifestyle improvements include better diet, better air quality, exercise, rest, not eating late at night, spiritual shifts (less stress), taking therapeutic enzymes, drinking more liquids and so on. In my opinion, for a person on the Standard American Diet (SAD), the BEST lifestyle improvement that this person could make above all is DEFINITELY an improvement in diet. An obese person who consistently eats the “Standard American Diet” and consistently eats the same amount of processed foods each day without any dietary improvement will unlikely heal from a disease and/or lose a significant amount of weight, even if they are doing all of the other kinds of lifestyle improvements mentioned above, including; living in clean air, exercising, resting, meditating, not eating late at night and/or drinking all of the water that they can manage.
Now don’t get me wrong…all of these suggestions are GREAT lifestyle improvements. However, in my opinion eating processed foods such as refined sugar and processed starches is much more damaging to the body than not doing the other lifestyle improvements. If we eat processed, toxic foods, we are voluntarily taking damaging elements and putting them inside of us. That’s CRAZY! If a person who was suffering from a serious degenerative disease went to live in a place with pristine air, stopped eating late at night, took enzymes, exercised every single day, prayed, meditated, and rested, BUT still managed to eat a fast food hamburger and french fries every day, they would unlikely heal. Again, all of those other lifestyle improvements are GREAT steps in the right direction, yet NOTHING compares to eliminating the most damaging “foods” to the human body, which include refined sugars, processed starches, transfatty acids, and so on…
Since I am always HARPING about cleansing the colon, I’ll skip over that practice for now. Additionally, I’m going to also skip the MULTI-FACETED spiritual potential of the human being for this article too. However, I will say that stress is like a poison to the system, and affects the human body in very adverse ways. If we stay “unconscious” and don’t enjoy some kind of connection to our spirits, we typically experience large amounts of stress and release “poisons” into the body such as adrenalin, which will accelerate aging. Personally, this is probably the next important lifestyle improvement for me to explore on my own path.
So…!!! In my opinion, NEXT on the general ‘Lifestyle Improvement’ list, after dietary changes, is living in an environment with better air quality. Although pollution in the air is extremely damaging to the body and clean air is so healthful in contrast, if you continue to eat from fast food restaurants, clean air will not be as beneficial to you. For example, we know that drinking green vegetable juice is good for us, but if we continue to drink cola regularly, while drinking green juice, the effects of the green juice won’t be nearly as effective. It’s more important what we DON’T ingest, RATHER THAN what we DO ingest.
So, let’s go back to air quality… If you were to go into an environment that is more polluted than your current environment, then when you leave the more polluted environment, at some point you will detox these excess pollution poisons from your body. When you go through this detox, you will not feel as good – it would be much better for your health to not go into this more polluted environment in the first place. For example, imagine that you went into a bar that was FILLED with cigarette smoke. I don’t know about you, but if I did this, I would NEED to immediately EXIT, because it would feel terrible and I would sense what this was doing to my health. A smoke-filled bar is a more polluted environment than I am accustomed to and most of us on healthy paths try to avoid this type of environment as much as we possibly can.
What if I told you that you were in a polluted environment similar to this smoked-filled room, RIGHT NOW!?!?
Some of you may even be reading this on a balcony right on the beach as your breathe in fresh air with negative ions from the ocean…and you may think that I am ABSOLUTELY CRAZY!!! The reason that you may think I am crazy, is because YOU MIGHT JUST NOT KNOW what is really happening here. You may not know the truth of the situation, because you cannot see it, feel it, or sense it in any way. Let me explain…
We talked about what happens when you go into an environment that is more polluted than your current environment, but we haven’t talked about what happens when you go from your current environment to an environment that is LESS polluted…
NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, the air that you are breathing RIGHT NOW is a lot more polluted than the pristine air that existed on this planet thousands of years ago. Day in and day out, we tend to breathe in about the same amount of air pollution each day as we go about our lives. If you then go into an environment with MORE pollution, your body tries to resist it and it will present symptoms such as a runny nose, tearing up, coughing and so on as indicators that something is amiss. If you permanently moved to this new MORE polluted environment, then after a while of breathing in this new amount of pollution each and every single day, these symptoms will eventually be ‘silenced’ and the vitality of your body will be weakened overall, as a result.
Why is this happening?!… Think about it!:
When you first enter a more polluted environment, you take a breath in and there are now more toxins in you than there used to be previously. These toxins are new to your body so your cells can take these toxins in and then send them right back out (detox)… But then…you breath in more air filled with the same amount of toxins over and over and over again. Your body becomes inundated and saturated with these new toxins. They fill up every cell and space within your body. You are now saturated with these toxins and the body doesn’t have the same ability to clear them out and become cleaner. As soon as your body throws out some of these toxins, you are just breathing more right back in. It’s like watching a fish in DIRTY BROWN water. This water is on the inside and outside of the fish. There is NO AVOIDING this polluted brown water, and the interesting part is that the fish likely doesn’t even realize that he is in this brown polluted water…he has adapted to it… When we see this fish in dirty brown water, we likely conclude that if the fish STAYS in such a poor environment, it will have an early death. Well, GUESS WHAT?!
WE TOO are ALSO ‘swimming in brown dirty water’ and WE don’t even seem to usually notice it. Our lives will ALSO be shortened as a result of living like this. None of us really know what it is like to be present in TRULY pristine air, because we haven’t experienced it in these lifetimes. I personally have experienced some environments that are extremely clean comparatively speaking and in these locations I get as high as can be on the air quality, as my third eye just BUZZES! Someone who is not on a ‘clean’ diet may not even sense this kind of difference in air quality, because their body is so inundated with other toxins. This is one reason why I feel that diet is the FIRST thing that NEEDS to be improved for more vibrant health overall…
I feel that the importance of CLEAN air quality is under-rated, because most of us don’t even realize how polluted most of the air is these days. Even when we are out of major cities, we may not realize that we are still swimming in dirty water, just like that fish. I feel that one of the most beneficial goals humans could seek to achieve in life would be to improve air quality. I also feel that individuals desiring a ‘spiritual’, impeccably healthy lifestyle would benefit TREMENDOUSLY through finding an environment with the cleanest air possible. I feel that diet and air quality are two of the most important aspects to attend to, when seeking ULTIMATE health.
The Importance of Clean Air!!! Article, by Matt Monarch
The following information is for education only and is not meant to diagnose, prescribe, or treat illness. It is valuable to seek the advice of an alternative health care professional before making any changes.
I didn’t realize the importance of air quality until I went on a 100% Raw Food Diet and I began to become more and more sensitive to air pollution. Then I read what was to become one of my favorite Raw Food/Breatharian books called ‘Man’s Higher Consciousness
‘, by Hilton Hotema. I feel that this book should be MANDATORY reading for EVERYONE!!!… and in my opinion, it will teach you the absolute truth about how Modern Man is the ‘degenerate descendant’ of the Breatharian and how all disease can be seen as an adaptation to toxicity. Additionally, you will learn more around the issues of immunity and sensitivities.
From what I remember, Hilton Hotema states that when an infant breathes in poisoned polluted air, they become ailed with a runny nose from the pollution; this could be thought of as an early warning sign. Usually, however, this bodily reaction continues and is eventually simply ‘silenced’, as the body accommodates and adapts to the air pollution. This was just one example stated in this book and it opened my mind to the truth about the absolute importance of clean air. Soon after reading that book, I experienced the cleanest air that I have ever found in the US. Immediately, my third eye started to vibrate and I felt totally ENERGIZED. I felt like I was on a drug trip, as HIGH as can be! I knew from that day forward, that someday I was going to settle in one of the areas of the world with PRISTINE air quality – this was a clear priority for me.
TEN YEARS later, that day seems to have finally come. Angela and I just moved to Vilcabamba, Ecuador where the air quality feels unparalleled. In just one short week the benefits that I have been experiencing are miraculous. Wrinkles have been disappearing from my face. I used to have black heads in my skin but in this pristine air, they seem to be nonexistent. I used to wake up with a runny nose every morning out in the US. I thought that this was maybe due to too much fat in my raw diet. However, I now believe it was mainly the detoxification of poisons from the air, on an ongoing basis. If you watch our most recent episodes from our TV Show, you may notice how good our skin seems to look and how much healthier we look in general here.
It is AMAZING to me, as I sit here typing at my computer and breathe in PRISTINE air. I feel that being enveloped in this kind of air is the way we were MEANT to live and it makes me want to cry in happinesss. Adapting here is definitely a process. With just the smallest amount of exercise, my heart rate rapidly increases as I HUFF and PUFF, in just a short period of time. I feel like we are in a completely different atmosphere, like outer-space or something. I feel that the “becoming younger” benefits will be ongoing for many years on end now, JUST BY LIVING HERE!!!
The air up here contains more minerals to sustain the body, there is less carbon dioxide and more oxygen and ozone. Additionally, the top soil is not emiting off odors of acid decay. I feel that out here, if a person is eliminating the excess toxins from the body appropriately, it would be almost impossible to run into a deficiency. Experiments consistently show, without exception, that elimination is much more important than feeding. Many people refuse to recognize this fact, especially because when living in a polluted environment, deficiencies are more common. When I say that I feel a person will not run into a deficiency out here if they keep up with the elimination, this is not in regards to the food being so mineral- and vitamin-rich, but rather I’m referring to the mineral-rich quality of the air here. In future Newsletters, I feel that my articles are going to focus more on air quality and I will also provide scientific research that backs up some of the ideas presented here.
There are definite precautions that a person would do well to follow if consuming a ‘clean’ diet and living in this type of pristine environment.
To illustrate this hypothesis, Hilton Hotema offers the perfect example in his book, “Man’s Higher Consciousness”. In a clinical experiment, a group of scientists put Bird-A in a glass cage with no air outlets. Breath by breath, the bird exhaled CO2, and the air in the cage became increasingly more toxic. Because the process happened gradually, the bird was able to adapt to the CO2-rich environment. Bird-A was then removed from the glass cage. Bird-B was placed in the same CO2-rich environment. Bird-B died in moments from shock. Bird-B had no time to adapt like Bird-A, and the sudden extreme toxicity made it impossible to sustain life.
Most urban areas within the US are like the CO2 enriched bird cage, while places like the Himalayas or Vilcabamba might represent the outside of the bird cage. The longer a person stays in a pristine environment, the ‘cleaner’ they become at a cellular level, the more sensitive they become, and the more damaging polluted enviroments become for them. I was in NYC just three months ago. The pollution did effect me, however, if I were to live out here in Vilcabamba for a decade and then go back to NYC, I sense that the effects could be devastatingly harsh for my body.
In my mind, the positives outweighs any of the potential ‘sensitivity’ risks involved when adhering to a clean lifestyle like this. I hope that this opens your mind to the importance of air quality and that perhaps you too take this into more consideration. Again, in future articles, I intend to go deeper into these concepts.

Three simple ways to clean and refresh your floors and carpets, from Farmer’s Almanac:
1 cup crushed dried herbs (such as rosemary, southernwood, or lavender)
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
Combine all of the ingredients in a large jar or other container with a tight-fitting lid. Shake well to blend. Sprinkle some of the mixture on your carpet, let it sit for an hour or so, and then vacuum it up. It will give the room a pleasant smell and neutralize carpet odors.
Wood Floor Polish
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Mix the ingredients well, rub on the floor, and buff with a clean, dry cloth.
1/4 teaspoon dishwashing liquid
1 cup lukewarm water
Combine the ingredients. Use a spray bottle to apply the solution over a large area or use the solution to spot-clean nongreasy stains. (Don’t use laundry detergent or dishwasher detergent in place of dishwashing liquid, as they may contain additives that can affect the rug’s color.)
