AT 50, Dr. David Ssali of Dama Medicinal Herbs maintains an adequate lifestyle. Ssali, who is often hosted on Kampala FM stations to discuss health issues, weighs 78kg and is 6ft 3 inches tall. He is married with eight children.

Lifestyle

“My normal day beings at 5:00am with a glass of water. I pray before heading to my clinic in town. I read some literature up to 7:30am the time for my breakfast - fruits and vegetables. I neither take tea nor eat any kind of food at this time.

At 8:00am I start seeing my patients. I do not smoke nor take alcohol.

I make sure I sleep for six to seven hours a day. Every weekend, I do colon irrigation (an alternative therapy which cleans your large intestines). In fact I am likely to live on for 130 years.

Diet

I drink a lot of water throughout the day. My breakfast has tomatoes, onions, carrots, parsley and celery. I have of rice and beans or peas for lunch and only two fingers of banana (bogoya) for supper.
I do not take sugar because the one I get from fruits is enough for my body. I eat meat only on weekends.

Exercise

Every evening I walk 3km.

Health history

For the last 10 years, I have not fallen ill. In the past, I used to be prone to malaria, but after I discovered that what makes a person sick is the waste that rots and piles up in their bodies, I started doing colon irrigation every weekend. I do not expect to fall ill because I know what to eat and my purpose of eating is to live.

Recommendations
According to Dr. Nelly Birungi, a nutritionist at Mulago Hospital, Ssali could extend his life by up to 30 years.
“He has the right weight for his height. The fruits and vegetables that he takes are very beneficial to him.

“Our immunity is boosted by the foods that are high in vitamins, minerals, zinc, fibre and calcium,” she said.
“ Ssali’s eating pattern is good and can be recommended to any one. But he needs to add a little bit of proteins,”Birungi said.
