Dr. Will Tuttle’s Vegan Keys to Health and Longevity in 2018

I had the great pleasure and honor of having Dr. Will Tuttle, author of The World Peace Diet, on Sacred Exploration Radio, in which we discussed the deep spiritual implications of how we eat. Our philosophies align quite beautifully and expand upon each other’s experience. Here, he provides additional information about  basic principles in understanding longevity:

IMG_6192.JPG

The higher we are eating on the food chain, the more concentrated the toxins are in the foods we are eating. Cows, pigs, chickens, and farmed fish, for example, are eating corn, soy, alfalfa, and other grains that absorb environmental toxins, especially if they’re not organic. Additionally, their feed is often enriched with fishmeal, chicken litter, slaughterhouse waste, and other substances that concentrate toxins, and that industry has found profitable to use, promoting weight gain and milk production. The result is that with animal foods, we are consuming PCBs, dioxins, heavy metals, nuclear radiation, pesticides, herbicides, and a wide range of injected drug and hormone residues. These physical toxins tend to increase rates of cancer and weaken our immune system, reducing longevity. There are also naturally occurring toxins in animal foods, such as the primary protein in milk, casein, which we are not designed to digest, as well as other animal proteins that tend to be inflammatory and to acidify our blood and tissues. These substances, along with saturated animal fat, hormones, heterocyclic amines, and other naturally occurring substances increase risk for heart disease, strokes, diverticulitis, kidney and liver disease, obesity, autoimmune disease, arthritis, and other conditions that reduce health and longevity.

However, beyond these physical toxins that accumulate in animal-sourced foods, there are what we can refer to as metaphysical toxins that we may not be aware of. The animals who provide the flesh, dairy products, and eggs we are typically pressured into eating from infancy are confined, mutilated, abused, and killed in ways that lead to our consuming metaphysical toxins. I have heard the plaintive wails of despondent dairy cows whose calves are stolen from them at birth, and the squeals of pain and terror as pigs are sent to slaughter. In purchasing animal foods, we are both causing and consuming acute fear, despair, pain, sadness, and frustration. What is the result of building our bodies with these hormonal and vibrational realities? Further, all the cows, pigs, chickens, and other animals we use for food are killed at a small fraction of their natural life spans, when they are mere infants or children in human terms. What is the result of killing billions of animals for food when they are only infants? Destroying the longevity and health of others, do we destroy our own health and longevity?

We can see the answer to this in the decreasing longevity rates in the U.S., and in the vast profits accruing to the medical-pharmaceutical industry, which sells billions of dollars of drugs annually in three main markets: 1) for animals who are imprisoned for food; 2) for people who eat foods derived from these animals and consequently need medications for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and other resulting conditions, and 3) the largest market of all, for people who are prescribed medications for mental conditions such as insomnia, depression, anxiety, panic, and dementia, and who, significantly, are typically buying and eating animal foods, causing insomnia, depression, anxiety, and panic in the animals whose flesh and secretions they are eating. The ancient wisdom holds true eternally: as we sow, we reap.

Longevity is not only about the quantity of years we live; it is also about the quality of our lives as well. As a composer and pianist, I have spent quite a bit of time over the years offering concerts to elderly people confined to nursing homes, and have thus been able to witness some of the effects of our food and medical systems. Many of us who in our later years are committed to these institutions are drugged into states where we exhibit little awareness and our capacities and functionality are tragically minimized. We may live for years in these facilities doing little more than watching television and staring blankly. These painful years add little to meaningful longevity, yet cows, pigs, chickens, and fishes continue to be killed to keep us alive, and as a culture, we fail to see how our abuse of these animals boomerangs and affects us all.

Looking more deeply into longevity, we are called also to address the bigger picture, and the purpose of our lives on this Earth.  Why are we here, actually? If we live longer, what are we doing with the additional years? How are we contributing to our deeper purpose, and to the purpose of humanity? What role does our lifetime here have in the larger journey of our being as an expression of eternal consciousness?

No matter how we look at it, whether we live to be 60, or 80, or even, say, 110 years, which seems remarkably long to us, we will inevitably find ourselves at that moment when we leave our bodies, and this moment is unpredictable. The mere handful of decades we have here on our earthly adventure, relatively brief and precious as it is, opens ineluctably to a new experience after death that is strongly influenced by how we live our life here.

We are not merely physical objects, pieces of living meat with a brain and biological drives. This delusion of materialism is perpetuated by our animal-enslaving culture, which is based on eating animals and relentlessly reducing beings to things.

Despite the reductionist narrative of our culture, we are all manifestations of infinite and eternal consciousness. Though what we are can never, essentially, be born or die, our human life is significant, because we have the opportunity to learn, grow, express, and contribute as part of a boundless unity of being.

By questioning the official stories of our culture that promote violence and disease, and pursuing our lives as questing adventures of awakening joy, love, freedom, and respect for all expressions of life, we connect with our spiritual health and longevity, which is rooted in the timeless awareness that is the core of our true nature. By living this lifetime in alignment with vegan values, endeavoring to bless others and allowing them to fulfill their purposes, we sow seeds not just for physical health and longevity, but also for metaphysical health and longevity as well.

Our journey is far more vast than we can fathom, especially within the context of our cultural conditioning. The seeds we sow will produce after their kind, with consequences that reverberate throughout the entire web of creation, far beyond what we’re aware of here. The quality of these reverberations determines the quality of our lives not just as physical beings here on Earth, but as expressions of eternal consciousness in the far bigger picture into which our lives here unfold. This is the most significant longevity, and one through which the compassion of vegan living brings benefits to all of us, both here on this Earth, and also into our unfolding journey beyond the veils of this lifetime.

FIT AND FAITHFUL: GUIDELINES FOR PEACE OF MIND By Hemda Mizrahi and Maria DiGiuseppe

Fitness coach and personal trainer Maria DiGiuseppe describes her book, “Fit and Faithful,” as “a personal testimony of faith with professional fitness and nutrition guidance.” Identifying Christianity as a major influence in her life, she shares scriptures that provide universal direction for good health, regardless of your cultural affiliations.

Maria suggests, “we need the same principles, commitment and endurance with regard to our physical body as we do to our spiritual body in order to have good health and peace of mind. Living your life honestly and being mindful of how you influence others is one of the greatest contributions you can make.” She further advises:

ENSURE YOUR COMMITMENT TO CHANGE.
“Repentance or metanoia means, “to turn away from.” What modifications do you need to make to create a healthier lifestyle, such as “turning away” from overeating, excessive drinking, and a lack of discipline? Make these changes and write them down. Practically speaking, we can replace old habits with new ones. For example, instead of watching TV at night for two hours, take a one-hour walk around the neighborhood.  How many days a week can you commit to exercising? Make a pledge to yourself to stick to that plan. Beyond changing habits, commitment is about staying on the healthy lifestyle path! When you are steadfast, even if you lose the weight you want, or are in the best shape of your life, in the face of an upsetting experience or difficult challenge you’ll persevere! There is not a quitting option. If you’re going through a stressful event, the progress you’ve already made may help you to handle it better.

DEVELOP A MINDSET OF PERSEVERANCE.  
“If your life has taken a turn and you have to define a new sense of “normal,” that’s okay. Over time, you may be able to do something that you couldn’t do last year. If someone suggests that something you want to do is out of your reach, that you’re too old, or that it’s too late to accomplish your goals, keep in mind: If you can see it and plan it, you can achieve it!

While we live in a world in which so much is permissible, for some even one glass of wine is not a good idea. Addiction doesn’t mean that you do it daily or can’t live without it. It means that you’re doing something that causes you to suffer adverse consequences and yet you continue to do it. I believe this applies to relationships too. If a relationship only causes pain and stress, it’s probably best to put boundaries in place or get away from it all together. Try not to let the world dictate how you choose to live.

Romans 12:2 guides, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Once you change your patterns and think differently about things, you will start becoming the best version of yourself and live an amazing life!  Pray for direction.”

ENGAGE FAITH AS A STANDARD FOR HEALTH & PEACE OF MIND.
Health is also being able to handle stress. Since some things are out of your control, I’m an advocate of trusting in something bigger than what you can understand. I believed the Bible had all the answers and knew that one day I would get around to reading it, but didn’t realize that I shouldn’t take time for granted. Define your standard today while you have the opportunity. Delineate what you believe. A strong foundation sets norms for how you live spiritually and with regard to good health. As the standard for Christians, the bible offers hope and answers to life’s questions. Matthew 7:7 says, “ask and you will receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened to you.”  

I think people can get caught in a vicious cycle. When one bad situation occurs after another, you might feel that your life is spiraling out of control. This is why I think it’s so important to have faith. It’s the umbrella over everything else. Faith according to Hebrews 11:1 is being certain of what you hope for, and confident of what you cannot see. Look for ways no matter how small, to pick yourself up. Suffering without seeking support can lead to disability and depression. Doctors may not have the answers but there may be other resources available to you, such as counseling or family support.  Don’t give up! Eventually you will see the light that is shining in the dark. Psalm 119:105 states: “your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”  

Maria suggests that following the standard of a “higher power” makes for a disciplined life, much like how athletes train to be their best. She offers the guidance of Corinthians 9:24: “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.”

As you construct a foundation through which you can uphold your commitment, a mindset of perseverance, and discipline, Maria urges: “When you lack motivation, you can rely on the purpose that God gives you for your life, “for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose (Philippians 2:13).”

Listen to my conversation with Maria on “Turn the Page” to learn about the four concepts that she sees as essential for physical and spiritual health.

FIT AND FAITHFUL: GUIDELINES FOR GOOD HEALTH & WEIGHT LOSS By Hemda Mizrahi & Maria DiGiuseppe

FIT AND FAITHFUL: GUIDELINES FOR GOOD HEALTH & WEIGHT LOSS By Hemda Mizrahi & Maria DiGiuseppe

Fitness coach and personal trainer Maria DiGiuseppe joined me on “Turn the Page” to share her approach to “good health and peace of mind,” documented in her book, “Fit and Faithful.”  

In my post-show conversation with Maria, she provided additional suggestions about what you can do to strengthen your physical health. Here’s what she shared:

PHYSICAL HEALTH & EXERCISE
“The National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), American Council of Exercise, National Institute of Health (NIH) Senior Health, and World Health Organization (WHO) are authorities which provide guidelines for your physical health.

The NASM recommends doing cardio training at least two to three times a week. Most health benefits occur with at least 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity physical activity, such as brisk walking. Additional benefits occur with more physical activity. You can fulfill 30-minutes of cardio through any of a number of modalities, such as high-intensity interval training, use of a treadmill and elliptical machine, and classes like aerobics or dance. The NASM also suggests two to three days of strength training with flexibility exercises included.  

Applying substantiated recommendations like these requires adherence and is only possible if you believe in what you are doing. Without consistency there are no results. Being clear about the benefits to you is a step toward “locking in” your motivation and dedication. Research suggests that people who exercise can lower their biological age, as measured by factors such as aerobic power, muscle strength, joint stability, flexibility, life expectancy, and the onset of disability.  Regular physical activity reduces the risk of adverse health outcomes and exercise has positive effects on your overall sense of well-being.”  

NUTRITION
“Choose one of the diets recommended by the American Dietetic Association (ADA) or a certified nutritionist. This doesn’t mean choosing a “fad” diet, like eating a grapefruit everyday for a month and excluding protein. It has to be a standard that is sensible and one you can live by daily.

The Mediterranean diet, which I grew up on in my Italian household, is an example of a healthy diet that you can stay on for life. It contains macronutrients, carbohydrates, protein, the good heart healthy fat found in fish and nuts, plenty of fruits and vegetables, and whole grain breads and pastas. Other examples of healthy recommended diets are the Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension (DASH), Diabetic, and MyPLate. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers videos, recipes, and other resources to help you to “eat right.”

If you choose the MyPlate diet, you can set up the food-tracking tool (called SuperTracker) on your computer with your personal information and learn what changes you may need to make in your diet. I will show you when your sodium intake is too high, or if you go over your recommended calorie amounts. There are other tracking tools available through MyPlate as well, including ones for weight management, physical activities, and goal setting.

YOUR FOOD AND EXERCISE PROGRAM MIGHT LOOK LIKE THIS:
30 minutes of strength training twice a week
30 minutes of walking on the treadmill or biking three days a week

Mediterranean Menu
This menu, which totals about 1400 calories, is not appropriate for everyone and must be adjusted based on individual needs.  

Breakfast:
One egg on whole grain toast with coffee and a glass of skim milk

Lunch:
Grilled chicken breast on mesclun lettuce with carrots, cucumber, olive olive oil and a vinaigrette dressing and a small lentil soup

Dinner:
Broiled Sole with ½ baked potato, steamed broccoli and ½ cup of brown rice

Snack:
Apple, pear, a hand full of walnuts (200 calories) in between meals  

WEIGHT LOSS
“I had a client who came to me with a picture of herself in a bathing suit from ten years earlier, when she liked the way she looked. We used the formula of adding 250 calories a day in energy expenditure (calories burned through physical activities) and subtracted 250 calories in what she ate to create a total reduction of 500 calories a day. She lost almost 50 pounds in six months! Adherence equals results!  

Here’s a weight loss formula:
250 calories expended daily during exercise + a 250 calorie reduction from daily calorie intake * 7 days a week = 3,500 calories, which amounts to losing one pound!  

Example:
45 minutes on the treadmill daily and one less cookie, rice portion or slice of pizza a day

GOOD HEALTH
“Many people see menopause, disease and aging as obstacles to leading a healthy lifestyle. I don’t see it that way. Circumstances like these provide opportunities to enhance our lives, be grateful for what we have, and learn how to redefine what it means to have good health. While you may experience limitations and setbacks, being your best is still an option.

My body didn’t fail me as I first thought when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Instead, it supported me to withstand the surgeries, rehab, and mental and physical stress that I had to endure throughout the treatment process. I’ve seen this with clients as well. As a result of their improved fitness levels, when an unexpected illness arrives, they recover much better and faster than if they had not been leading a healthy lifestyle.

Your foundation for good health is rooted in exercise and good nutrition. Building a strong base, especially while you’re young, will set you up for future success!”

Listen to Maria’s guest spot on “Turn the Page” to learn about the four concepts that she sees as essential for physical and spiritual health, and why she views faith as the pillar for peace of mind.
