All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Nishi Shiki was invented in 1927 by Katsuzō Nishi, the chief engineer for the Tokyo subway and an aikido teacher.

Most of my life I followed the first four rules every day, and substituted the rest with yoga asanas. 

Laws of the Nishi Health System 

  1. heisho (平床寝台) - sleep on a flat hard surface, 
  2. kochin (硬枕利用) - with hard semi-cylindrical pillow,
  3. kingyo undō (金魚運動) - wing your hips horizontally like fish (1 minute),
  4. mōkan undō (毛管運動) - lie on your back and raise your arms and legs, then shake them (1 minute),
  5. gasshō gasseki undō (合掌合蹠運動) - lie on your back and join your hands and feet, then slide your hands and feet horizontally (10 times). 
  6. hifuku undō (背腹運動) - sit down Japanese style and swing your upper body centering on your hips (10 minutes). When you are in inclined position, pump your abdomen, in upright position - shrink your abdomen.

As long as Man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings, he will never know health or peace.

Phytonutrients

Plant foods contain thousands of natural chemicals, which are called phytonutrients or phytochemicals ("phyto" means "plant"). These chemicals help protect plants from germs, fungi, bugs, and other threats. Phytonutrients are not essential, but they may help prevent disease.

More than 25,000 phytochemicals are found in plant foods, and six important phytonutrients are: 

  • Carotenoids
  • Ellagic acid
  • Flavonoids
  • Resveratrol
  • Glucosinolates
  • Phytoestrogens
