How our food affects our life;
Today there is a wave of “awakening” sweeping across the earth. More and more people are realizing that in deviating from the natural order by which humans are designed to eat raw alkaline natural foods, we have lost something precious, but, if we return to nature; and live according to the natural laws, we can recover from disease; and what has been lost and attain the great blessing of real lasting health.
We hope that’s why you’re here, sharing this information with us. In this return to nature wellness program, we look forward to helping you find that precious blessing of real and lasting health.
People are realizing that health can be reclaimed through a change in their diet & lifestyle. By accepting responsibility for your health, we mean perfect & lasting health, and nothing less, you can start observing what you put into your mouth because you become what you eat, inhale or absorb, all animals, including humans are a higher manifestation of life in the ecosystem.
Let’s put this in simple terms, to have vibrant health & fitness, which is life in your body, you must have life in your food that you eat every day. Your diet MUST have raw alkaline foods making up the highest percentage; even making it to 75% raw to 25% half cooked is just enough to give you vibrant wellness.
How We Have Deviated;
In our present culture, it is apparent that we have deviated from living sensibly & eating instinctively, especially where our nourishment is concerned. Much of our food intake comes in the form of fast foods, which merely appear to meet our needs but actually do not. They not only lack mineral nourishment but often contain harmful ingredients in form of preservatives, sweeteners, etc.
With the spell of our illusions broken, we need to return to the natural way of eating and eliminate all chemicals from our food. Many ancient civilizations followed the ways of nature and knew the importance of eating live and raw natural foods, the basic source of nourishment. These basics are composed of raw, uncooked vegetables and fruits, germinated and sprouted grains, nuts, and seeds, sprouted legumes, green sprouts grown on trays, alkalinizing juices, and some dehydrated and fermented foods.
Before we even examine the superior value of raw and living food, we should explain exactly why we should not cook our food.
During this apparently harmless process, vital enzymes are destroyed, proteins are coagulated (making them very difficult to assimilate), and vitamins are mostly destroyed with the remainder changing into forms that are difficult for the body to utilize.
Pesticides are restructured into even more toxic compounds, valuable oxygen is lost and free radicals are produced. Studies suggest that cooked proteins (coagulated) are up to 50% less likely to be utilized. Oxygen, enzymes, phytonutrients, and hormones are consequently destroyed.
In addition, there is another danger in cooked foods that has special significance for our modern era with its overwhelming toxic congestion in the bloodstream & stresses on the human immune system making individuals increasingly vulnerable to a variety of diseases.
Cooking food above a certain temperature (slightly under 200 degrees Fahrenheit) causes a pathogenic response in the body-leukocytosis – whereby white blood cells (leukocytes) are actually used to digest the food much as they would attack a foreign substance. In the last century, this was thought to be a normal part of the digestive process.
However, Dr. Sebi discovered that consuming raw foods did not produce the same response. He also concluded that processing, before cooking, dramatically increased this pathological response.
Equally important to note is the absence of vital enzymes in cooked foods. The activity of life is enzyme activity, according to Dr. Sebi, an African pioneer in the African bio-mineral balance research. In his work, he identified up to 100,000 different enzymes functioning in the body. In the final analysis, he equates the health of individuals with their enzyme status. With these enzymes destroyed through cooking, our foods become enzyme deficient. Youthful bodies are capable of supplying additional enzymes needed to digest cooked foods, but this capability diminishes with age, causing indigestion and constipation in our older population. As one ages, it is more important than ever to eat a mainly raw diet.
A raw and living food diet is loaded with enzymes, crammed with vitamins and minerals, abundant in oxygen, complete with available proteins, and are especially high in fiber. Furthermore, there is another life-giving response in the alkalinity of these raw foods. Most importantly, living raw foods, such as sprouts, which are still growing until the moment one eats them, provide us with a more subtle vitality due to the fact that the foods’ bio-electrical forces are most active. Kirlian photography has actually shown that the electrical energy surrounding a tray of wheatgrass is such that one’s energy is enhanced by merely consuming them. Our bodies are run on this bio-electric energy and can only be found in raw alkaline-forming foods.
The abundance of oxygen in these foods should not be ignored. More and more studies reveal that oxygen deprivation within the body equals disease and death. Oxygenation of the bloodstream is essential to the nourishment of all the cells in one’s body. On a raw food diet, a continual supply of oxygen is fed into the system with extremely beneficial results. To reiterate, only living and raw foods with their alkaline effect on the body can reverse the acidification (aging, disease, and death) process caused by the consumption of cooked and processed foods.
Definitive research on extending life spans has clearly proven that the consumption of high-quality raw foods consumed in considerable amounts prolongs life. As always, the pharmaceutical industry is trying to create a pill that will help award us life extension. This pill will reduce caloric intake from food rather than to use common sense and educate people to eat less and get on the living raw food diet.
With these simple truths in mind, it is easy to see how harmony can be restored to the body through the use of fresh, raw and living foods. They nourish, cleanse and alkalinize the body by the combined action of their nutritional components, vitamins, minerals, amino acids (proteins), pure liquids, complex carbohydrates, fiber, enzymes, phytonutrients and hormones.
