It’s nearly Valentine’s Day—a time to celebrate romantic love. But who are we kidding? We cannot have a healthy, fun romantic life when our sexual organs are dysfunctional. The rates of cervical, ovarian and prostate cancer diagnoses are growing every day (to say nothing of breast cancer). HPV, ovarian cysts, erectile dysfunction, yeast infections, and the common over-the-counter complaints about the nether regions are simply <em>not</em> sexy!! Yet nearly everyone walking around today has something to complain about.

We must admit to the following truths:

1) “Normal” living is not clean living.

2) Unclean bodies produce compromised offspring.

3) There is far more to sexual responsibility than wearing a condom.

Photographic illusions of alluring models may sell products, but “normal” Americans with their distended body parts, bad breath and unhealthy sexual organs are anything but sexy. When you think about love this Valentine’s Day, pull back the veil of plastic illusions and discover the truth: sexy, loving relationships occur between men and women with clean-celled bodies living for the highest good of our micro- and macrocosmic communities. We must take responsibility for the health of our sexual and reproductive organs.

Just about every product that average Americans use on a daily basis negatively impacts sexual health. For example, it’s widely known that underarm deodorants deliver chemicals and heavy metals into the lymph and breast tissue. It’s also generally known that perfumes, dyes and preservatives in mainstream toiletries are carcinogenic and highly acidic to the body. But one particularly toxic product is often overlooked: the tampon.

We never want to jam things into organs that require a flow in the opposite direction. Mothers, tell your daughters: tampons fight the natural flow, creating reverse pressure and leading to ovarian cysts that then lead to bigger issues. Further, all tampons, even the ones at the health food stores, are loaded with highly carcinogenic chemicals that leach into the body—skyrocketing the potential for bladder and cervical cancer and cervical issues! Records show a dramatic discrepancy between the frequency of female cancers before and after the invention of the tampon.

Now, if you need to use a tampon now and then, it should not cause great harm, but use them sparingly! If you are having heavy, uncomfortable periods, it is a sign that you are out of balance. Once your body regains its balance, your periods will be shorter and lighter. The pill and IUDs are also extremely damaging with repercussions that are so far-reaching that they will need to be addressed separately. The bottom line is this: Women are poisoning themselves in the name of sex and do not know how to care for their sexual and reproductive health.

Men’s biggest sexual organ issues are prostate trouble and erectile dysfunction. The first is largely caused by the secum and sigmoid in the colon overfilling with waste, which presses into the groin, creating prostatitis. More than 90% of American men over the age of fifty have a prostate issue. The biggest factor that affects the prostate is a high-protein diet. And get this: excessive masturbation also leads to prostate issues, not to mention severely drains a man’s chi. However, when a man is with a woman, her pulsations give him energy, making up for some of his loss. And when real love is actually present in lovemaking, there can be no loss of chi drain since love and chi are the same thing.

According to the <em>I Ching, The Tao of Health, Sex and Longevity</em> and Mantak Chia’s works (which are too extensive to list here), men are really only meant to ejaculate ten to thirty-five times a year and ideally no more than once a week for optimal physical health. (Keep in mind that this is just what the ancients recommend for optimal health, so find the balance that is right for you and your relationship.)

Also, the semen of an unclean body carries a lot of microtoxins, which are not good for a man’s partner. This results in a lot of unpleasant reactions in women. The cleaner a woman is internally, the more extreme her reaction will be to the toxic semen. (Again, not sexy!) In fact, there is so much toxicity released in the average man’s semen that he can easily wind up with prostate problems if he doesn’t regularly release some of that built-up toxicity. This is why abstinence in modern men can also lead to prostate trouble.

Finally, we cannot ignore the most obvious part of romance: procreation. Our children are sick, sad and angry. Why? Because people who are internally unclean (their cells are carrying excessive waste matter) are having children, severely compromising the physical, emotional and mental wellbeing of these offspring. Children born to parents who eat and live “normally” take on all their parents’ internal problems in their DNA. Before you get too hard on yourself, it’s the build-up of generations and generations unfit consumption and degenerating health. This is how we’ve arrived at a state of widespread illness that has turned us into a pill-popping Prozac Nation.

However, there is a way to turn it all around. The more people cleanse internally through diet and clean living, the better for the future of our kids. <strong>Two clean, emotionally, mentally, and physically healthy people who feel deeply attracted to each other and share the vision of a clean, joyful world for their children—now that is sexy! </strong>

This is not a moral or religious conviction. It’s just nature. We are destroying nature with our illusions of what is sexy, romantic and desirable.

If you are trying to get pregnant or wish to have a child sometime in the future, you must understand that generations of poor diets and damaging lifestyles created the childhood diseases that now haunt our culture. A child’s health stems from the parents’ seed (semen) and soil (womb). In fact, the seed is much more of a determining factor in the health of the child than the soil, which means the father’s health is critical for the creation of a healthy child.

Everything we do to our bodies has a direct effect on us and a parallel effect on the future of our world. When we use products or ingest substances that offend the laws of nature, we not only create immediate imbalances in our being, but we pass those imbalances into other realms and stages of our lives, into the next generation, and ultimately to the future of our whole world. <em>How you treat your body and yourself matters—it matters to you, to your partner, to your children, and to your community at large. </em>

Fall in love with the truth this Valentine’s Day and see how sexy and beautiful life can be when it springs from the highest good!
