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.

Dalai Lama

Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to a man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not to die, so do other creatures.

All Essential Amino Acids

An essential amino acid, or indispensable amino acid, is an amino acid that cannot be synthesized by the organism, and must be supplied in diet. 

The 9 amino acids humans cannot synthesize (F V T W M L I K H):

  • phenylalanine
  • valine
  • threonine
  • tryptophan
  • methionine
  • leucine
  • isoleucine
  • lysine
  • histidine

Animal and plant proteins are made up of about 20 common amino acids.

Synthesis of 6 other amino acids - conditionally essential - can be limited under special conditions (R C G Q P Y)arginine, cysteine, glycine, glutamine, proline, and tyrosine.

Dispensable amino acids can be synthesized in the human body, 5 (A D N E S): alanine, aspartic acid, asparagine, glutamic acid and serine .
