Hippocrates (460‐377 B.C.) said, “LET THY FOOD BE THY MEDICINE.”
The first step the people need to take is not to start something but to stop causes.
Bear in mind that your body’s ability to heal is greater than anyone has permitted you to believe.
Inflammation, aches and pains, tumors, cancer, and even mental issues can be traced to “inflamed” (too hot) organs.
Thus, KOSA recommends that you eliminate the following from your lifestyle starting immediately (pending satisfactory improvement) until you are fully healthy back.

“You can reduce your exposure to pesticides by up to 80 percent by buying the organic version of the Dirty Dozen,” Amy Rosenthal said.
The Dirty Dozen
Celery, Peaches, Strawberries, Apples, Domestic Blueberries, Nectarines, Sweet Bell Peppers, Spinach, Kale, Collard Greens, Cherries, Potatoes, Imported Grapes, and Lettuce
Not all non-organic fruits and vegetables have a high pesticide level.
Some produce has a strong outer layer that provides a defense against pesticide contamination.
The group found a number of non-organic fruits and vegetables dubbed the “Clean 15” that contained little to no pesticides.

Fear harms the kidney and bladder, which are in charge of bones and marrows. Especially, the kidney is in charge of reproductive organs.
Anger is the worst emotion that can hurt you and it will immediately damage liver and gallbladder, which are in charge of muscles, sinews, eyeballs, and vision. Especially, the liver is additionally responsible for reproductive organs and is the master organ overseeing all other organs’ self-healing activities.
It harms the kidney and bladder. When you are in a line to wait for something, walk-in place instead of standing still.
Eat and drink as less amount and frequency as possible.
Chew your food properly
Avoid SMOOTHIE and JUICE because it would not allow your saliva to be mixed with it.
Take smaller bites of food, to begin with (it’s easier to chew smaller morsels)
Chew slowly and steadily
Chew until your mouthful of food is liquefied or lost all of its texture
Finish chewing and swallowing completely before taking another bite of food
Wait to drink fluids until you’ve swallowed

Go to bed with an empty stomach. While you are sleeping with an empty stomach, your liver can focus on self-healing most effectively.
Sleep at least 8 hours a day and don’t do any exercise except for walking. This will allow the liver to concentrate on self-healing.
Walking at least 30 minutes once a day
It will help the liver.
Don’t stop walking once you started to walk.
You don’t need to walk fast. You need to enjoy brisk walking.
If the walking exercise causes any pain or discomfort, stop it immediately.

Multi-minerals, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E – organic and vegan
Current Nutrition Facts Labels are usually more than 50 years old and there are not enough vitamins and minerals due to the industrialized food system. Of course, not enough minerals and/or vitamins will cause serious diseases and/or illness.
Especially for minerals, NIH’s recommendations are based on the maintenance purpose, which means to maintain a healthy condition.
Therefore, taking food supplementary products may be needed.
People in nutrition (food supplementary products) have the tendency of exaggerating the effects of the product, not knowing that proper nutrition is not the only reason for unhealthy conditions. Sometimes, over-nutrition can also cause an unhealthy condition. Always ask them about the success rate of that miraculous effect and keep questioning.
For the first month, take 200% of the daily value.
For the second month, take 150% of the daily value.
From the third month, take 100% of the daily value.

KOSA breathing technique
The normal adult usually breathes 18 times per minute. If you have hypertension you might benefit from these exercises:
While keeping time on a watch with a second hand, inhale 2 seconds and exhale 2 seconds, keeping this up for 30 minutes or more.
The goal is to regulate breathing down to 15 times per minute or less.
Don’t do deep breathing.
Quantity of air inhaled and exhaled is not important, but cycle time is the longer the breath, the better.
Once you are comfortable inhaling and exhaling for 2 seconds’ duration, try increasing from 2 seconds to 3 seconds; then from 3 seconds to 4 seconds; and so on.
This breathing exercise may help your organs including the kidney and lower your blood pressure.
Pain during exercise or physical activity can indicate the inability of organs to withstand the strain or recuperate.
Pain is your body’s way of telling you your organs need to stop and take a break from exercise.
Pain killers may temporarily increase mobility, but only at the risk of organ damage.
Aspirin is incapable of killing the flu virus; but it helps with pain and lowers fever, thus providing relief for the lungs, and in turn, healthy lungs will kill the flu virus.
Pains, discomforts and other health concerns (inflammation, irritation, itching, tremor, tumor, lesions, and etc.) are usually the indications of hot organs.
Don’t: Yoga, stretching, physical therapy, massage therapy, hot pack and etc., which would raise the temperature. If you prefer to have them, stop immediately as soon as you feel relief.
Do: Cold pack (but if you feel discomfort, stop it immediately) and try to be a couch potato (don’t move, simply) as long as possible.

Good Doctors and Bad Doctors
There are many good doctors and still, there are bad doctors at the same time.
Always try to get the 2nd opinion.
It is said that many doctors do not know much about nutrition.
Keep questioning why they tell you to do that. What is the science behind it? What are the side effects? What is NNT and NNH? What is the success rate? What are the side effects? What is my chance of getting the side effects?
Doctors sometimes do not tell you that other drugs you take may increase the chance of side effects.
Doctors do not know whether you would have side effects or not.
Doctors sometimes overlook their patients have been experiencing the side effects unless they tell doctors them.
Some drugs have warning signs that you cannot take them when you have liver disease. The problem is that the liver is so-called an organ of silence and even with 95% of failure the patients do not notice any symptoms. Considering this, how can you think you don’t have liver disease?
Being smart is not one of the qualifications to be medical doctors. When you have the 2nd opinion, which is different than the 1st one, you are the person who needs to make a smart decision which one is good for you. Again, keep questioning and questioning to protect and help you better. The fact that the 2nd opinion is the same as the 1st one does not necessarily mean that both of them are true.

When the 1988 U.S. outbreak happened, it was told that the Swine flu vaccine had a side effect rate is one out of a half million people.
However, there were two victims of the vaccine in Ridgecrest in California with a population of less than 25,000 ended up having Guillain–Barré syndrome. The rate in that city was one out of 12,500, instead of 500,000, which is 40-fold.
A low chance of side effects does not guarantee that you won’t be a victim.
If you don’t feel good postponing the vaccine until you feel good and healthy would lower the chance of side effects.

Understanding symptom and root cause
Vitamin D deficiency (or Hypovitaminosis D) has symptoms related to liver and/or kidney and this indicates that liver and/or kidney are unhealthy.
Supplementing Vitamin D may be able to give relief to the liver and/or kidney and those organs may be able to be recovered. However, this treatment is usually not good enough to resolve the problem.
Once the responsible organs of the liver and/or kidneys are properly treated and those organs get healthy, Vitamin D deficiency (or Hypovitaminosis D) will be naturally treated.
