In 2010, an interview was conducted between George Noory and Dr Susan Smith Jones. It was a radio interview on Coast to Coast AM, a North-American late-night radio talk show. The radio station draws in approximately 3 million listeners, making it the most listened-to program. The program usually discusses about paranormal or conspiracy theories… but in Dr Susan’s interview they spoke about healthy eating and healthy living.

Dr Susan Jones is an educator, motivator and author. She has established herself as one of the world’s foremost experts on diet and nutrition, high level wellness, natural remedies, balanced living, and human potential. She has also authored over 26 books and 1,500 magazine articles on these topics.

In the interview, she says that she was inspired by her grandmother who believed in dealing with the body through natural means. As proof to her healthy lifestyle, she reveals, “I haven’t had a cold or a flu almost in a quarter of a century.”

Radio Host: You know, one of the delights of life? Listening to Coast to Coast. Another should be you taking care of yourself and how do you do that the proper way? Susan Smith Jones will tell you in a moment, on Coast to Coast AM.

Radio Host: Well I guess you could say that Susan Smith Jones is one of our nutritional experts. She’s got a PhD, and has assisted thousands of people in becoming more aware of how their food and lifestyle choices affect their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being for 30 years. Susan taught students, staff, faculty at UCLA how to be healthy and fit. She is an author of Recipes for Healthy Bliss, Healing Power of NatureFoods and Healthy Bliss as well. She’s a motivational speaker…motivate us Susan, how are ya?

Susan: George, it’s so great to be with you. Didn’t we have a good time on April Fools’ night with Toast to Toast?

Radio Host: I loved it…I’m still getting emails on them, you know. People are so…one lady hexed me, put a curse on me because of that show.

Susan: Oh really? I bet you’re already thinking of what you’ll do next year as well and I think somebody’s birthday is coming up.

Radio Host: Somebody’s birthday is coming up and I’m not celebrating.

Susan: The big one.

Radio Host: I don’t know, alright.

Susan: But age is a state of mind because if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.

Radio Host: “Welcome to Coast to Coast”, so is that it?

Susan: Well, yeah, George.

Radio Host: You know what? I have, over three months, I have dropped 15 pounds.

Susan: Isn’t that wonderful!

Radio Host: I was not necessarily overweight, I’ll tell you what happened. My glucose level got out of whack, and my doctor says, “You know, you keep this up, you’re gonna be a diabetic” and he said, “I wanna put you on Metformin.” And I said, “I don’t want to take this pill!” So he said, “Well, go to this other doctor, he’s an expert in this.” And the doctor looked at me and said, “Look, you lose a little bit of weight, stay off a lot of carbs, stay off pastas and white bread and all these things, potatoes, starches, and,” he said, “Watch what happens.” And now it’s almost normal again. Isn’t it incredible?

Susan: Good for you. See? I should be interviewing you tonight!

Radio Host: No…but I also did the supplement things, the cinnamon and stuff like that, and the bottom-line for me is you gotta be healthy as much as you can. I mean, you know, every day you have to treat as if it is your last. And what a waste if it’s gone and you didn’t enjoy it, but at the same time, you should watch yourself and prolong those days, right?

Susan: There is nothing more important than health and it is not just eating the best foods – now that’s important – or just exercising, but it’s the whole balance, body, mind and spirit. Body reflects the mind, and the mind reflects the spirit. You see, if you eat good foods – colorful, lots of plant-based foods, high in antioxidants – and if you reduce in those beige and white foods, then what happens is you have a more positive attitude. And you can exercise an hour or two a day, and then you’ll be more optimistic. And yet I bet all of your listeners now that are listening to us know that you can eat the best foods and you can exercise all day, but if your thoughts are always negative, if you’re always harboring thoughts of doubt and worry and anger and jealousy and hopelessness, there’s no way you’re ever gonna live your highest potential. And because body reflects mind, and mind reflects the spirit, the body is a great place to start and an easy place to start is what you eat. I know you remember from previous shows that I was very much influenced by my grandmother Fritzi, remember? And I was really sick as a teenager, and she took me under her wings. And she was like a healer and lived close to nature, and she taught me how to heal my body, from head to toe, inside and out and as a result, I haven’t had a cold or a flu almost in a quarter of a century. I’ve never taken any medication, and in regards to foods – and because I’m always optimistic, my nickname’s Sunny – so she’d always say to me, “Sunny, always look to nature for what to eat because in nature, you won’t find ice cream trees and potato chip bushes and doughnut vines. But the more natural and colorful your meal is, the more likely it is to have an abundance of healing nutrients that boost immunity, that protects the body from disease and promotes vibrant health.” And George, I still have people all the time come up to me, who recognize me during or before or after my talk, and they’ll say, “You know, I like what you say Susan, but you know, I know I’m headed for a heart attack because my dad died of heart disease, and my grandfather did and it’s just in the family, it’s in my genes!” And I say to people like that, that they will say that to me, just pay attention to that amazing study done in ’08 by Dr Dean Ornish. It was a three month, groundbreaking study and it was demonstrated that the subjects affected changes in activity in about 500 genes including 48 that were turned on, and 453 that were turned off as a result of this, George, eating more healthy foods like you’re eating now, keeping stress levels down, practicing relaxation techniques like meditation, and of course exercising regularly. So in just three months – in 90 days – you can change hundreds of your genes by simply changing what you eat and how you live. That is amazing to me, amazing!

Radio Host: You have to do it, and this hour, I’m going to ask you about some super foods, a super food that you say can help promote weight loss.

Susan: Oh yeah.

Radio Host: Why is it that extra weight hurts the body?

Susan: Well, sadly, you know – and it’s an epidemic in America and in most of the world – but when you’re overweight and especially if you’re obese, it brings with it major health problems like heart disease, certain cancers, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, like you know, diabetes, gout, stroke, osteoporosis, arthritis. They are all associated with obesity, but you know I’m a positive person so to put it in a more positive way, losing even a little bit of weight, significantly will improve your health and your well-being.

Radio Host: Well, that’s a good point. That is true. You know, most people though, are not totally happy the way they look. Why is it that the foods that are no good for us taste the best?

Susan: That’s a good question. In fact you are so right George because surveys indicate that most people are not happy with their weight or the shape of their body. And the sad thing is, that a majority of these people are going about in a wrong way, the hard way, by dieting which never works. So you wanna throw away any diet book that tells you, you can lose weight and keep it off without moving a muscle…

Radio Host: What do you mean dieting doesn’t work?

Susan: No. Dieting doesn’t work. Dieting, you usually change all the foods you eat, and you eat much less, and that slows down your basal metabolic rate, your metabolism. When you slow that down then your body, as a safeguard, starts using some of your muscle as a fuel source. And, as I’ll talk about in a little bit, you wanna have as much lean muscle tissue in your body as you can, so…and foods that really taste good, those beige and white foods that have lots of sugar and saturated fat, they are almost like – it has been proven scientifically – like morphine in the body.

Radio Host: Yeah, I used to love chocolate-covered doughnuts. Not anymore. Used to love ‘em. They’re the best! I miss one. A nice one. Chocolate on it.

Susan: And they’re good to use as a little baseball to throw, like to your grandchildren now, you know, because they’re soft and you can catch them easily. Or if you want to have a little more bit upstairs, the women, you know, want to have a little bit more, you know, that you can use those instead of tissue to stuff your bra. That’s what those are good for.

Radio Host: I don’t wear a bra.

Susan: Yeah I know, I was told you didn’t

Radio Host: I’m thinking of a glazed doughnut now.

Susan: Yeah…great!

Radio Host: But they are! The crummy stuff for your body tastes the best.

Susan: Seriously, I’m gonna disagree with you. I know initially it tastes the best, but as you clean out your body by eating better foods and exercising and getting enough sleep and drinking enough water, you actually change your taste buds. And you gotta have a little discipline in your life to be able to…

Radio Host: You have to…

Susan: …stick with it, that’s right. And discipline to me, is that ability to carry out the resolution long after the mood has left you, that mood or enthusiasm. And keep this in mind – Ben Franklin said whatever you do for 21 days will make or break a habit and behavioral sciences have discovered that if you do something, George, for 21 consecutive days in a row, like exercise or drinking more water or eating fresh fruits, or you give up something like the white flour pastas and ice cream every night for dessert, and 21 days you’ll no longer crave for what you gave up, or you will have established a new habit, and it really does work. I’ve taught this for 35 years in my work, and it really comes down to this: you’ve got to make your word count. See, your life is a reflection of how you feel about yourself.

Radio Host: It’s critical. 6 months ago, my little grandchild Mia called me up and said, “Papa, it’s Girl Scouts’ cookie time, are you gonna order from me? So I ordered a whole bunch of boxes of Tagalongs from her. Those are those peanut butter Girl Scout cookies. They’re the best. I can’t eat one, I eat the whole box. And so she bought…I ordered 6 of those, 6 boxes of those. I came back to St Louis a couple of months ago, and there they were waiting for me on the kitchen counter, and you know what I did? I gave them all away. I gave them all away. It wasn’t easy! I gave one box away to a guy and then I pulled it out of his hand, but he took it. It wasn’t easy. It takes willpower. Once you get there, you feel guilty if you cheat.

Susan: No, I know. And you see, what you’ve just proven is that you can tell by your daily actions what you are committed to. They always reflect your self-esteem and you could have eaten them, and you didn’t and you gave them away so you can tell that you’re making your health a top priority in your life.

Radio Host: How important is exercise, water and eating right in losing weight?

Susan: Oh my goodness. Absolutely you wanna exercise because with exercise you’re gonna build more lean muscle tissue on your body, and you do that through weightlifting, strength training, resistance training, whatever you want to call it. And when you add – you’re gonna love this, George, when you add 10 extra pounds of muscle to your body, you’ll burn approximately 500 extra calories a day. You’d have to jog 6 miles a day, 7 days a week to burn the same number of calories. 10 extra pounds of muscle on your body can burn a pound of fat a week. That’s 52 pounds a year. And I know everyone listening now, you’re all thinking, “Sounds good, how do I build 10 extra pounds of muscle on my body?” Well, you do it by engaging in some type of strength training and weightlifting and it will take…if you work out two-three times a week, it will take four to six months to build those 10 extra pounds of muscle on your body. But what happens is when you have the extra muscle, you burn more calories than someone who doesn’t, even when you’re both sitting still.

Radio Host: That’s right.

Susan: Now, in terms of looking younger – oh, this is so fantastic – Duke University did a series of studies and if everyone out there…let’s just say if anyone out there wants to look 15-20 years younger in one year from tomorrow, scientifically proven, there is a simple way to do it.

Radio Host: How?

Susan: Two times a week, for 30 minutes, you need to engage in weightlifting. You can go to the gym, you can do it in your home, you can go to the park and take some weights with you, and it works most effectively in people from their 40s to their 90s. It works better for them than even younger people, and so in one year from tomorrow, if you started lifting weights two times a week, you’ll look and also physiologically be 15-20 years younger than you are right now.

Radio Host: That’s it?

Susan: Yeah, that’s it. See, this is the beauty of health. It’s the simple lifestyle choices like what you eat, how you deal with stress, how often you exercise, how much sleep you get and water you drink, what you think – these have the most enormous impact on your longevity and quality of life and George, changes that wereonce labelled milestones in growing older such as high blood pressure, fragile bones, weight gain, significant vision and memory loss, these are no longer considered inevitable. And I think probably because we’re so time-poor, and even out of laziness, well-proven anti-ageing measures like diet and exercise and sleep and looking after our mind and spirit, often go unheeded. Yet it is most important to note just how simple looking and feeling younger can be achieved naturally by working from the inside out.

Radio Host: Susan, what’s the one superfood you say would help promote weight loss?

Susan: Oh, if you said I could only have one food to promote weight loss and to look younger and have the energy and have beautiful skin, without a doubt it would be green vegetables and here is why. There was a review of 206 humans, not animals, but human epidemiological studies, and it shows that green vegetables have the strongest protective effect against cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, arthritis, high blood pressure, than all other foods. But the sad truth is only one in 500 Americans consumes enough calories from vegetables to assure this defence. So the cornerstone of any heart-healthy, cancer-protective, longevity-favorable diet, which should be to eat as many raw and steamed and cooked vegetables as you can, because they’re true superfoods with so much nutritional value, they are nutrient -dense.

Radio Host: Alright, what’s the culinary spice you love to promote?

Susan: Well, I know yours.

Radio Host: Mine is turmeric, of course.

Susan: Turmeric, of course it is, yeah. Of course it is and that’s such a good anti-inflammatory…

Radio Host: Yes sure is, and that’s why I take it.

Susan: Yeah, not only that, it helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels, it’s one of the best antioxidants you can take, and what I do is I have them in capsule form for when I fly…fly places or when I sleep and I fly. And then I also have it as a liquid tincture because then it gets into my system really quickly and I’ll take a drop or so, in a glass of water, and it turns it all orange and gold – it’s so beautiful – you drink it down and it’s still kinda… the glass remains a little orange and gold. But cinnamon, cinnamon is great if you’re diabetic, pre-diabetic to balance out your blood sugar levels, but also to lower your LDL, the bad cholesterol, lipo, yeah, and also lower triglycerides and blood pressure and to raise your high density lipo-protein a little bit, but then the one to help you lose weight, you’re gonna love this –

Radio Host: Drumbeat… bumbumbum

Susan: What you say? Oh yeah, wait, *tapping sound* there you go. It’s cayenne pepper. See, whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right?

Radio Host: That’s right.

Susan: And see, cayenne provides a three-pronged attack against obesity because number one, when you eat cayenne or any hot chili peppers, like the jalapeno peppers, they fight off food cravings. You know, scientist have discovered when you eat these sharp-tasting foods, they overwhelm the taste buds, cutting off craving. Then secondly, cayenne helps you eat less. You’re gonna love this one. There was a study in the Netherlands where they gave a group of men, .9 grams of ground cayenne pepper, either in a pill or mixed with their tomato juice, and then 30 minutes later – so envision this – they turn these men loose at an all-you-can-eat buffet. And then compared with the men who were given a placebo, the men who had the cayenne reduced their food intake by up to 16%. And then third, it requires lots of energy to eat hot, spicy foods. In other words, it burns calories to eat them. So here’s what I recommend: you don’t always want all the foods you eat to taste like cayenne pepper, so I also have them in capsule form and if I’m having an extra sweet dessert or something that probably has more calories that I know I need, then before I eat it I’ll take a couple of capsules of cayenne and that will help burn a few more calories.

Tell us about your best-selling three-book series, Blissful Living.

Susan: Oh, uh, I definitely will. You know, for 30 years, you know, I taught at UCLA and I took the program that I taught – and it’s a 30-day program to look 10 years younger, lose weight, boost self-esteem, heal your body – and so it’s the program I taught there and that I’ve also given all over the world. in seminars and workshops, and I’ve put it into one three-book set, you know.

Radio Host: Alright, super. Susan, we’re gonna take some calls tonight.

Susan: Okay

Radio Host: Right here, let’s go to Jason in Farmington, Maine, you’re right up with us. Hey Jason, welcome to the show.

Jason: Good morning.

Radio Host: Good to have you with us. Go ahead.

Jason: Just um, I grow garlic, hard-neck garlic, and I thought maybe Susan can just give the listeners some information on the health benefits of consuming garlic and using it raw, while you’re cooking it, just maybe she could…

Susan: Well Jason, I’m telling you, and George, I can speak for hours on garlic. First of all, it is known around the world as a natural antibiotic. You know, Popeye might have eaten spinach for strength, but in Ancient Egypt the slaves who built the great Pyramids were given garlic to give them endurance. In Greece and Rome, in Ancient Greece and Rome, athletes take garlic before competitions. It helps lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, triglycerides, it’s a powerful antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal. It is so good for you. It helps to prevent colds and flus and infections and it’s also excellent for your heart. It’s one of seven spices, in addition to your favorite one, George, turmeric, fenugreek, cloves, cayenne, cinnamon and ginger, really good for heart health. And you might be spending a lot of quality time alone if you eat too much of it but, you know, who cares, it will keep you healthy.

Radio Host: You know, I wish I knew then, what I know now. My gosh! The things we could have done when we were in our 20s and 30s!

Susan: I know. But George, it’s never too late to start , never. In fact, you know that song you played, what was that song? Bridge over…

Radio Host: Bridge over Troubled Water

Susan: Yeah, that made me think about attitude…

Radio Host: Simon and Garfunkel

Susan: …and affirmations, brought me back to my younger years as well but I wanted to mention to you because it’s so important. My grandmother always used to say to me that attitude is the mind’s paintbrush, it can color anything and when you have a good attitude about yourself and when you learn to love yourself and honor the miracle that is your body, then love will come to you in forms of vibrant health, happiness, success, and prosperity and peace. And I’m a big believer in affirmation to keep your whole energy positive, and I know your listeners know this, but just as a quick review, affirmations are those positive words and declarations of truth of who you really are, and what you want to create in your life. And I think the queen of…I call her the queen of positive thinking and affirmations is Louise Hay. And I bet most of your listeners know who she is. She is my dear friend and mentor, but she is the publisher extraordinaire and the author of many books including that big international best-seller called Heal Your Body. But I thought I’d let you know that today she has a new book that just came out, it’s all about affirmations. It’s so beautiful, I have it right here in front of me, it’s got a CD at the back of the book. It’s called Experience Your Good Now and if you go to experienceyourgoodnow.com, you’ll get lots of gifts from Louise and a chance to win a cruise to the Caribbean which will make you look younger and take away stress!

Radio Host: Absolutely. What do you think of organic peanut butter? Is it any good?

Susan: Well, organic is always better than non-organic, but what…if you like nut butters, I think what’s better than nut butters – and I know if you taste it, you’ll agree with me – would be almond butter. Almond butter.

Radio Host: Where do you find almond butter?

Susan: All the health food stores have them.

Radio Host: They do?

Susan: And you can get it roasted or raw, even better raw.

Radio Host: What does it taste like?

Susan: It’s in the nut butter section.

Radio Host: What does it taste like?

Susan: Taste like almonds.

Radio Host: How do you eat it?

Susan: Well, you eat it just the way you would with peanut butter. You can use it as a spread on celery or apples or spread it on your toast. I make…you know, if you have ever had peanut sauce on Indian or different kind of foods, I use it in dressing,

Radio Host: Yeah, yeah.

Susan: So people that want to gain weight, you know, the few of you listening who might wanna gain weight…

Radio Host: Gain weight?

Susan: Yeah, you can put it in your smoothies to thicken it up and to give you extra calories. Now, it is a concentrated food so you don’t wanna overdo it. A little bit goes a long way but almond butter, hemp butter, sesame butter or cashew butter is so delicious.

Radio Host: Our scale’s good to loo—

Susan: You’re talking about scales on cysts?

Radio Host: No, scales to lose weight.

Susan: I know. No. See, people, people get upset about weighing themselves and this is a good point to bring up. When you add extra muscles to your body, it weighs more than the fat.

Radio Host: So you got to go by the mirror.

Susan: Yeah, go by the mirror or take measurements and how your clothes fit. I think it’s good to weigh yourself about once a week, just to give you an idea of how you’re doing because if you’re on a good fitness, health, good eating program, you should be losing weight every week but if you keep increasing then you need to…I mean the whole program is in my three-book set, everything you need there, all the foods, herbs, spices and all the lifestyle choices to look 10 years younger in 30 days, unless George, you’re in the worst shape ever and you’ve never embraced any health practice in your life…

Radio Host: Well, you have to go slow.

Susan: …then it might take about three months.

Radio Host: Marion in Dayton, Ohio, east of the Rockies, you’re up with us on Coast to Coast, good morning, Marion.

Marion: Good morning. Thank you very much. I’m sorry I have chronic deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary emboli. I’m on a wheelchair. I’m on Coumadin. I’m not allowed to eat spinach and all the green goodies, and I can’t hardly walk because most of the clots are in my legs. I don’t know what to do about exercise. I love to be able to get your books. Do you have any capsules or anything that I can take?

Susan: You know what? And I have worked with many people with disabilities or in wheelchairs…you know, I was the first fitness trainer, and remember I started the UCLA when I was three, George…

Radio Host: Yeah, exactly, so sorry about your football team.

Susan: …I was the first fitness trainer, and Marion, there is so much you can do on a wheelchair, where you can lift weights. You know, or even if you don’t have weights, you can take cans of soup or bottles of water, and put your arms out to the side and put your arms forward and…can you lift your feet up and extend your leg?

Marion: There are clots behind my knees, in my knees, I lost about 50% of my, the bend…

Susan: Alright, so I’m gonna say you can absolutely work out your upper body but as crazy as this sounds – and I want you to keep an open mind about this – I want you to practice visualization. Because studies have found when you visualize yourself getting in better shape and feeling better and looking younger, within 21 days – because your mind, the subconscious part of your mind has the reasoning power of about a 5 year old – and you put those positive affirmations and visualizations in your mind and you’ll see that your body begins to change. You know they’ve used visualization with all kinds of healing modalities or to get rid of cancer. So visualization would be good for you.

Radio Host: Apple cider vinegar, what do you think?

Susan: Ooh, I love it! I love it! Now that’s been a healing agent since Biblical times and Hippocrates, you know, he was the father of medicine 2400 years ago, he said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” But he relied on apple cider vinegar as a standard remedy. Now, it’s filled with enzymes and potassium and studies have found that it helps to relieve high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, acid reflux, achy joints, allergies, yeast infections, even sore throat. But here’s a key point: there is a difference between raw, organic, unfiltered and undistilled apple cider vinegar – so primarily in health food stores – and the distilled, clear vinegar that turns up on the grocery shelves, that’s good for cleaning your house.

Radio Host: That’s right. Big difference.

Susan: But see, this latter one, the distilled white stuff lacks the mother of the vinegar, that cloudy sediment that we all know contains most of the health promoting enzymes, the acetic acid, the friendly bacteria, minerals and other nutrients from the apple. So even though it lacks the eye appeal to the general public, you want to go to your natural food store and look for organic, raw, unfiltered apple juice. And I take about one to two tablespoons – and I’ve done this for almost 40 years, Trixie taught me this – I take it in about eight-ounces of water. Now some people don’t love the taste, I love it, so some people add a sweetener and that’s alright. But you don’t really want to take undiluted…you don’t want to chuggle up, put the bottle up to your mouth and chuggle it down. It’s very acidic and it can damage tooth enamel, and your throat and mouth tissues if residues are left in your mouth. But this effect can be easily overcome by rinsing out your mouth with water after drinking or consuming apple cider vinegar. If anybody listening has arthritis, wants to lose weight, wants to have more energy, wants to digest your food better, you know, have an eight-ounce glass 15 minutes before your meal, with a teaspoon in, before each meal.

Radio Host: And it works?

Susan: Beautifully. Beautifully. It’s that beautiful, long time, time-tested folk remedy that is inexpensive and I look forward to it everyday. And instead of tea sometimes, I’ll take hot water, put in a little apple cider vinegar and maybe even add a peppermint teabag or chamomile teabag. And especially on a cool evening, it’s a warm, soothing drink. It’s delicious!

Radio Host: Next stop, we go to Ken in Knoxville, Tennessee. First-time caller, hi Ken, good morning,

Ken: Hi, George, well I’ve been trying to get you for about two years.

Radio Host: Wow. Glad you got in.

Susan: Well, aren’t I lucky, Ken!

Ken: Yes you are

Susan: Yes I am.

Ken: I just have a question for ya, I won’t keep you long. I’m 81 years old…

Susan: Wow, you sound 30 years younger!

Ken: …yeah, I work fulltime, I’ve been retired four times, I stay at 140 pounds and I eat everything…

Radio Host: Hmph.

Ken: …fat foods, everything.

Susan: I think you should hang up on him immediately, George. (laughs) We ’won’t talk with him. You’ve got a very healthy metabolism.

Ken: Yes, I know.

Susan: Good for you!

Ken: And people think, you know my kids and myself, “How old do you think I am?” And they’ll say, “Oh I don’t know. 58, 59?”

Susan: Aww…don’t you love that?

Ken: But I’m 81.

Susan: Yeah. Good for you. That’s wonderful. You inspire me, Ken.

Ken: And you know, I don’t exercise, I work full time, you know, in four days, I work 48 hours.

Susan: Amazing! Absolutely amazing! Good for you! I wish we had a video now, George, so we could see him. That is great!

Ken: But thank you, for taking my call.

Susan: Oh, you’re so welcome!

Radio Host: You know, Susan, how did you get involved in this, in health and nutrition?

Susan: Well, it’s all in my three-book set, so I’ll just tell you in a nutshell

Radio Host: Sure.

Susan: I’ve been in a major automobile accident in the 70s, my car was totaled. I was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance. The diagnosis was that I’d have to live the rest of my life in pain, wouldn’t be able to carry anything heavier than a purse, and really wouldn’t be very happy for the rest of my life. And I couldn’t accept that prognosis from the doctors. I’d severely fractured my lower back, and with sheer determination and belief and hope, and doing some physical therapy and then my grandmother helped me learn more about foods and everything, I changed my life and within six months, my team of doctors at UCLA claimed it was a miracle although they’d admitted they’d never studied about miracles in med school. But I learned from that and all my experiences through life and all around the world that I’ve written about in this beautiful three-book set, that there are three things that are important. First of all, you want to have a clear vision of how you want your life and your world to be and secondly, you’ve got to be totally committed to that vision. No matter what anyone says, you keep your word, you don’t let your excuses get in the way. And thirdly, always know there is this inherent healing power within you, that is there 24/7. You just call on it to help you, and you live a more faith-filled life, and you put those three things together and, like Ken did in his life, you’ll create miracles in your life. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “The whole course of things goes to teach us faith,” and I’ve learned that throughout my life and it’s really not that difficult. I love this little thought that I thought of the other day. Like bamboo, our lives are all about remaining rooted and resilient and flexible, and we’ve got to make the right choices. Pythagoras said, “Choose what is best. Habit will soon render it agreeable and easy,” and you said that George, at the beginning of the show, about the cookies, about the Girl Scout cookies, you did what is best and you’ve gotten into a habit. And really it’s about balance, it’s about relinquishing all the loveless ways that we treat and use our bodies. And it’s about knowledge too, so your decisions in life are only as good as your information so you need good information. And I feel real appreciative to Hay House that, for your listeners, through the end of the month, they’re giving anybody who gets the three-book set, a 40% discount, almost 40%.

Radio Host: Not bad. Let’s go to Vicky in St Louis, we only have a minute left. Hey Vicky, how are ya?

Vicky: Hey hello George, I’m doing good!

Susan: Hi Vicky!

Vicky: I’m a vegetarian now, it’s almost 6 years I gave up all meat, fast food, and I eat great, great salad every night, George, and brown organic rice…

Radio Host: Vicky came up to my book signing in St Louis a few weeks ago.

Susan: Vicky, you’re doing great! Eating as many plant-based foods as you can will keep you really healthy, really really healthy. You can choose to eat delectable foods that just happen to be potent medicines like those vegetables that heal the body and help restore vibrant health. Vicky, here’s a real good way to think of nutritious food, and I think you’d agree. Produce is the most important healthcare that your money can buy.

Radio Host: Super. And Susan, if you take care of yourself, how many years can you add to your life?

Susan: Dozens. Dozens. And it’s never too late to start! You can start in your 80s! And…but how great it is to start children when they’re young.

Radio Host: Absolutely. Susan, thank you so much for being on the program. Her website’s linked up at coasttocoastam.com. Our next program, we’re gonna talk about 2012 with Elizabeth Joyce, fascinating program, and then we’ll get into our open lines. She’ll also discuss indigo children, rainbow children and what she believes is the new human race, so be ready for that and then of course we got a series of great programs next week, including our space program, our program on NASA with science advisor Richard C Hoglan and astronaut Buzz Aldrin on the program as well along with some other guests, so that should be one of those Coast to Coast classics as well. I’ll see you again on Friday, right here, with open lines, with Coast to Coast AM.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful post.

  2. Sean Wang on Apr 16, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article here. I am not the kind of person who would know much about nutrition and I would not know where to get more information. Now, I know that I can look for books written by Dr. Susan.

    The way Dr. Susan speaks is as if she is giving a Dharma talk as she is teaching discipline.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article again. Green products can indeed save our lives!

  3. Jean Mei on Feb 4, 2013 at 1:50 am

    Not having the cold or the flu in over 10 years is quite unheard of! You would think that she was a hermit of some sort if you just heard that. Her raw diet seems to be a very effective preventive method towards illnesses. There has been many proven evidence that raw diets are effective towards cancer patient recovery and heart diseases. Even Bill Clinton is an advocate of such a diet.

    Another point that I found interesting in Dr Susan’s interview was her advice on visualization. The power of visualization seems to be accepted by healers and doctors now.

    Everything’s all in the mind… 😛

    “Alright, so I’m gonna say you can absolutely work out your upper body but as crazy as this sounds – and I want you to keep an open mind about this – I want you to practice visualization. Because studies have found when you visualize yourself getting in better shape and feeling better and looking younger, within 21 days – because your mind, the subconscious part of your mind has the reasoning power of about a 5 year old – and you put those positive affirmations and visualizations in your mind and you’ll see that your body begins to change. You know they’ve used visualization with all kinds of healing modalities or to get rid of cancer. So visualization would be good for you.”

  4. Joy on Feb 3, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    “you’re always harboring thoughts of doubt and worry and anger and jealousy and hopelessness, there’s no way you’re ever gonna live your highest potential. And because body reflects mind, and mind reflects the spirit, the body is a great place to start and an easy place to start is what you eat”.

    This part of Dr.Susan’s interview is what stuck out and the visualisation part for healing. It is the same as what we learn from Buddhist teachings! To always have positive thinking, and not negative because you the mind will affect the body and the speech and reaffirm what you believe even though it is not true.

    Visualisation in healing is kinda an ancient believe and it must work otherwise New Age believers and healers and Buddhism will not say the same things here. Like how we visualise Tara of Tsongkhapa or Manjushri and the light enveloping us and we even do black Manjushri/Medicine Buddha and visualising their light healing the areas we’re affected!

    Hence it goes to show it will work if we believe and do it… and eventually it becomes part of you and it can even change one’s habits. Like what Fr.Susan says studies have found when you visualize yourself getting in better shape and feeling better and looking younger, within 21 days – because your mind, the subconscious part of your mind has the reasoning power of about a 5 year old – and you put those positive affirmations and visualizations in your mind and you’ll see that your body begins to change. (Interesting!)

  5. Cynthia Lee on Nov 18, 2012 at 1:37 am

    Exactly what I need to know! Hehe. I shall keep in mind what colors to go for when I eat in future. Go for greens and avoid the whites. The more colorful, the better.

  6. Echeah on Sep 5, 2012 at 1:15 am

    This is just so interesting. My major takeaway, our health is in our hands. Cliched as it may sound, we literally can will ourselves to live a long healthy life or die younger, just by taking the appropriate actions. Similarly, we can also will ourselves to be in a suffering state or permanent happiness, just by our choice of actions. We have no one else to blame.

  7. tenzin llhamo on Aug 30, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    Such an interesting post. Her interview sounds like a Dharma teaching at some point. So many tips and it is so easy to abide. Who said that having veges only as your daily diet don’t help? Anyone from any age group can do it. Must go look for the pills Dr Susan mentioned and apple cider as well. I always wanted to try but I am scared that it will upset my gastric. I should start with a small bottle and see how it goes.

  8. Uncle Eddie on Aug 29, 2012 at 12:22 pm

    The abovenamed, one of the established world’s foremost experts on diet & nutrition, in a radio talkshow, has indicated that “its not just eating the best food or jus exercising, but it’s the whole balance, body, mind and spirit. Body reflects the mind – Mind reflests the spirit, and thenyou have a more posotive attitude. If your thoughts are negative, you’re always harbouring thoughts of doubt and worry, anger and jealousy and hopelessness – There is no way you ever gonna live your highest potential. Having taught for 35 years on how to create weight-loss, boost self-esteem, healingbodies through so many seminars and workshops, who can be a better authority to make such statements of facts than heself.She has also stated and established that through “visualisation of the mind” today, many kinds of healing modalities to get rid of cancers have been used with success and duly achieved. So visualisations would be good for us all too!

  9. DR on Aug 27, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    We all know what we should eat or not eat, what are the health foods, the supplements we need, etc. We all know that we need to clear our minds of doubts, worry,anger,jealousy and hopelessness couple with exercise, enough sleep, etc. In fact, we are so equipped with so much information and knowledge. Then we do it for a week, two weeks, maybe three and then it starts to wane….and then we start giving ourselves excuses and procrastinate and all comes to a halt! How many of us are guilty of this? I am!

    The key to success in anything we set out to do is consistency and to go all the way. We need DISCIPLINE!

  10. KH Ng on Aug 27, 2012 at 11:13 am

    Being vegetarian myself has brought benefits. No more gastric. Slimmer, more energetic and friends say I look younger. I avoid any pills except vitamins. Way to go for me.

  11. Pastor Yek Yee on Aug 27, 2012 at 2:40 am

    Another testimonial of be vegetarian!!!She look like so fresh, energetic and beautiful.

  12. Martin on Aug 27, 2012 at 12:30 am

    Thoroughly enjoyable radio interview. Although the talk was about food nutrition, Dr Susan has so much wisdom about her. I love what she said about the 3 important things to have in our lives, especially not allowing our excuses to get in the way. Also the part about how our attitudes shape our lives and our bodies.

    I am going to try the raw apple cider vinegar.

  13. Sheryl KH (JB) on Aug 26, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article here. Being a foreigner to health foods/living, it is simply so difficult to find real good books that will really help. Now I know that I can simply just look for books done by Dr Susan Smith Jones.

    Dr Susan also talks about many other aspects that help with healthier lives – such as disciplines (the ability to carry out the resolution long after the mood has left us).

    This article also affirms to us that all those things that help us with longevity and quality of life can come easy – exercises, quality sleep, water and mindset…

    What I like the most about this article comes from a paragraph near the end, which talks about how Dr Susan turned things around from a serious tragic accident. Maybe we can call this as a blessing in disguise? Yet, we have to admit that not many people can have the kind of stout determination and belief that Dr Susan had within herself. And of course, she was very blessed to have a great grandmother who helped to heal her naturally, and which makes who she is today.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article again. It not only affirms again the value of ‘green’ products but also the power of faith in our lives.

  14. Christine Wang on Aug 26, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    I don’t know if Dr Susan Jones is a Buddhist or not but what she has talked about about body, mind, spirit, changing habit for 21 days and eating more vegetable…etc., all these sounds familiar to me that I have heard something similar from Dharma teachings. Dharma is logical and it applies for daily life. And it will help our body and mind to be better and better.

    It’s interesting that whatever you do for 21 days will make or break a habit. Habit is what limits our mind. All you need is to commit for 21 days for something that you believe it will be benefitial- that can change your life! Worth to try anyway!

  15. judy lam on Aug 26, 2012 at 2:55 am

    I love what Susan said: “My grandmother always used to say to me that attitude is the mind’s paintbrush, it can color anything and when you have a good attitude about yourself and when you learn to love yourself and honor the miracle that is your body, then love will come to you in forms of vibrant health, happiness, success, and prosperity and peace. “
    Anyone can develop a good attitude if he/she chose to, it only takes a decision. To me, attitude is as important as a qualification, status and experience. There is no short cut to having a good attitude. It takes a willingness to change and desire to be the best to have a good attitude. It is always a joy to be around someone with a good attitude and he/she can inspire people around them to want to be like them.

  16. wah ying on Aug 26, 2012 at 2:00 am

    I love Dr Susan’s talk, when she first talks I thought she is a nutritionist, but she talks about food and life, she actually is a healer. What I love about her thoughts are:

    *Being healthy is about the balance of body, mind and spirit. Body reflects the mind, and the mind reflects the spirit.

    *Attitude is the mind’s paintbrush. When you have a good attitude about yourself and when you learn to love yourself and honor the miracle that is your body, then love will come to you in forms of vibrant health, happiness, success, and prosperity and peace.

    *Three important ingredients to create miracles in life:1)You want to have a clear vision of how you want your life and your world to be; 2)You’ve got to be totally committed to that vision. No matter what anyone says, you keep your word, you don’t let your excuses get in the way; and 3)We have our own inherent healing power within us, that is there 24/7. You just call on it to help you, and you live a more faith-filled lif

  17. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 26, 2012 at 1:20 am

    More evidence about the benefits of vegetable based diet is appearing all the time. Such evidence is available all over the world both in the East and West. Plant based diet is the way to go, so give it a go.

  18. Han on Aug 26, 2012 at 1:05 am

    I like below messages very much and its so true ,
    “you’re always harboring thoughts of doubt and worry and anger and jealousy and hopelessness, there’s no way you’re ever gonna live your highest potential. And because body reflects mind, and mind reflects the spirit, the body is a great place to start and an easy place to start is what you eat”.

    • Christine Wang on Aug 26, 2012 at 9:54 pm

      Yes Han, that was one of my favourite messages from Dr Susan Jones as well. Our mind lives in our bodies like a person lives in an apartment. If there are many problems with the person himself, the apartment won’t be looked after. 🙂

  19. Irene Lim on Aug 25, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    Dr Susan Jones is inspiring. Her knowledge are based on life experiences and I believe what she is saying does work and will make mankind healthier and extend longevity of the human race.

    What we eat is unique to each individual. Our body constituent differs from one to another hence we listen to our body before we embark totally on the diet that is suitable for others. Best to get a herbal nutritionalist to tailor diet that is appropriate for your body so it will nourish and keep your body immunity strong to become a healthier you. Apart from diet, your body and mind must also be in tune and in harmony with nature to become whole. I hope we can cultivate and achieve this wholeness in KECHARA FOREST RETREAT!

    Sometimes when we are angry we tend to remember it for a period of time. This is not healthy and even bring negative impact to us. We are angry because we cannot forgive and let go of what has happened. Just imagine the the energy and time wasted when we are angry. Therefore, we should learn to accept, forgive and move on. Otherwise holding on to grudges will only bring unhappiness to our life.

    Whether they are animals or insects, they are still living beings. As they are not in the form that are able to learn dharma, we should make ways for them to be connected to dharma to help them in their future rebirth. Rinpoche has showed us many ways to care for them, as easy as feeding them and blowing mantra to them. Whatever the method, we just need to put effort and continue with the practise.

    I always admire the creativeness of artists as they are able to bring out their message and express their feelings in a piece of art. Lynda Bell is a great artist as all her art piece brings awareness to our environment, animals, kindness and compassion. Something that we need to keep reminding ourselves that we are all part of the world and therefore we should not abuse and love one another.

    It is not just about learning the meaning of being kind and compassion but to apply it to our daily life and towards everyone. Rinpoche gave us the clear example to practise kindness and compassion. These values should not have any differentiation on anyone due to their background, race, language and etc. Everyone should be treated the same. Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this article.

    Rejoice to those able to witness such an auspicious trance in Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong . A privilege for many fortunate ones, to witness to our Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden and Karcho Marpo, via the Panglung oracle in full trance, which is very rare. The very first time opened to public and is a tremendous blessing and great merits for all. Panglung Kuten (oracle) was the most famous oracle of Kache Marpo and Dorje Shugden before 1959 in Tibet. Tibet has an ancient and popular tradition of oracles which involves Dharma Protector to descend into a human oracle. Panglung kuten is a very well-known oracle of over 7 great Dharma protectors, who are able to enter him, take full control of his body and speech. Many people from Tibet, Nepal , India and over the world came to seek accurate prophecies, advise and healing from this well- known oracle. For me been able to watch the video is a blessing and pictures tells me a thousand words as I only came to know Kechara in 2016.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many Dharma practitioners rely on Dharma protectors when they seek protection . Dharma protectors play various roles in different aspects of Buddhism . The practice of Dharma protectors has evolved through a long history in India and Tibet. In all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism history, various forceful spirits were tamed by great figures like Guru Rinpoche to become protectors of Buddhism. The purpose of this Dharma Protector practice is to remove obstacles and gather all favourable conditions for their spiritual practice. Within the Nyingma tradition they have Rahula as one of Dharma protectors, Ekajati as the main protector of the Dzogchen teachings while Dorje Shugden is Gelupa Dharma protector and there so many others dharma protectors been practice. Each of the wrathful forms of each protectors varies , depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard practitioners from dangers and enemies. Dharma protectors has benefited countless of sentient beings , granting protection wisdom, material needs and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for this knowledgeable post.

    Begtse Chen is one of the main protectors of the Geluk School of Tibetan Buddhism and especially revered in Mongolia. The origin of Begtse Chen can be traced to a pre-Buddhist deity in 16th century . Begtse Chen is the main protector associated with the Hayagriva cycle of Tantric Deity meditation practice.
    In Tibetan Buddhism Begtse is believed to have originated in India. The practice entered Tibet with Nyen Lotsawa in the 11th century. As a protector deity that does battle with the forces of evil and the wicked and guards the righteous and faithful . His terrifying, monstrous face it appearance serves only to frighten demons and dark spirits away and serves as a beacon of justice as well as a guardian of wisdom to all who see and revere him. Their wrathful forms depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard everyone from dangers and enemies. Interesting read to understand better of this Dharma Protector.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Youngsters should take this man as a role model not only for planting trees but for the confidence in him. Not only confidence, but even loaded of courage in him.Thank you very much for the good and inspiring article.

    As we can see in the video these people can help others through these powers , such abilities can also be developed through reciting mantras consistently on a daily basis.It is really interesting of to understand the existing of psychic, which may come from birth or by disaster like lightning.
    Always fascinated by people who have psychic powers. Wonder how it feels like to be able to know and see things the way they do. Personally I don’t know anyone with this ability.Thank you very much for this interesting and educational article.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing all the wonderful encounters of shopping with Rinpoche. As we know Rinpoche rarely goes shopping for himself but as gifts for various students. Reading this post simply have me thinking, one must be observant to develop knowledge, and to apply what we read from the Lamrim topics into our lives. Being observant of our surroundings and practicing situational awareness at all times.

    nteresting ….in Tibetan culture wild mushrooms spotted is a symbol of good luck. At Kechara Forest Retreat ,H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s private garden, mushrooms been spotted which is considered a good omen something good or arrival of good news , very auspicious symbol. Associated with nature and the beauty of the forest, having mushrooms popping up on one garden is rare and is very auspicious in Tibetan Buddhism, which will represent the Dharma will flourish in the near future. It’s indeed an auspicious sign.

    Religion should not come into politics as it is not one religion among other. These two should not mixed together or the results would be catastrophic To these days religion and politics seem to be all mixed up. It is happening to the present day where the Tibetan Leadership is against the Dorje Shugden practice. Its far too long the Dorje Shugden controversy been going on which is unnecessary and illogical causing sufferings, disharmony , discrimination and so forth among practitioners and non-practitioners. The Tibetan people should be given religious freedom to practise how and what they want. The Dalai Lama who promotes peace and harmony should do more to help those affected by the ban and not specking against them causing confusion. Hopefully the previous advice against Dorje Shugden should be retracted for the sake of a peace and harmony. It would be wonderful if Dalai Lama could have discussion with the Chinese leadership to solve the present problems once for all. China is a great and powerful nation, it would be good to have a good closer relationship . May Dalai Lama live long and back to his homeland Tibet soon. And may Dalai Lama lift the ban against Dorje Shugden .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Tsem Rinpoche was one definitely a modern Lama ,it was Rinpoche that we have online knowledge , learning and practicing Dharma. Being one of the first lamas to recognise the benefits of using the Internet to spread dharma teachings for free. We are very fortunate to have met Rinpoche , whereby we are able to learn, practice Dharma teachings. I myself got to know Rinpoche through his blog . Since I stumbled across Rinpoche blog, there is no stopping for me. I have visited it daily and to increase my Buddhism knowledge . Its amazing each day I learn something new , really interest and inspiring.
    Rinpoche had set the blog to preserve the teachings as taught by his many Gurus. Rinpoche was truly a modern Lama yet maintaining all traditional commitments, guru devotion, daily practices and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands and Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this wonderful post.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
