“But should we find…that the best selected homeopathic…medicine…does not effect an improvement, this is a sure sign that THE CAUSE THAT KEEPS UP THE DISEASE STILL PERSISTS….
—The Organon by Samuel Hahnemann MD,§ 256
Mom, why do we have to talk about diet?
Because I said so!
Oh geez, no one is gonna read this, Mom! “Diet” is so boring, no one wants to talk about it! People want to eat what they want to eat; and besides, there’s always vitamins. Where’s my pizza?
OK, definitely throw out those useless, expensive vitamin bottles! Here is the ultimate condensed tutorial on good health, all you need to know in an encapsulated form:
1. White sugar–bad!
2. White flour–bad!
3. Enzymes, however–very good! Eat food that contains enzymes!
People know a lot about vitamins, a little less about minerals, and almost nothing about enzymes! But, it is the lack of enzymes in the diet that causes much of the pathology in the world today!
Now, back to enzymes. Enzymes are catalysts. They make things happen; I’m talking about chemical reactions. Think of them as the body’s spark plugs. You can take all the vitamins and minerals you want; but, if they’re not attached to enzymes, they’re useless! Enzymes are found only in Raw Food. As soon as you cook a food, the enzymes are destroyed!
Enzymes are the ingredients in raw food that make the food turn brown almost as soon as you cut it open.
Nutritionist Dr. Carlton Fredericks used to say, “Eat food that goes bad and eat it before it does!” —————————>
All food that’s good for you goes bad!
And this is why there’s so little of it in the stores–it has No Shelf Life, and what’s useless to the commercial food industry?
Food with no shelf-life?
Exactly! Hence, the ubiquity of manufactured food which we now take for granted as being “normal”!
Watch and see how fast people with chronic disease get well once they stop eating commercially manufactured food and start introducing whole food, especially raw food, into their diet!
The easiest way to eat raw food is to drink it!
Why is that?
Because while eating three stalks of celery or three carrots may seem impossible, drinking it is easy! Imagine all the nutrients, all the vitamins and minerals, you’re ingesting–effortlessly, and they’re not “dead” vitamins in a bottle! (By the way, you know what’s really good? Carrot/apple juice! So refreshing!)
Vitamins and minerals, made completely artificially and pressed into hard-to-swallow pills, contain no life! They don’t exist in nature! They can’t confer life. But the juice of 3 celery stalks, three carrots, three apples, three pears and so on, is not only a treat but a bona fide medicine! These are live foods! They are alive because they contain enzymes. They’re alive and they promote and sustain life.
To restore your health:
step 1: Eat no more packaged and fast food!
step 2: Eat nothing made of white flour! Substitute whole grains, including brown rice for white rice. AND, if the label says “Wheat”, but not “Whole” wheat, then it’s most likely NOT whole wheat! Don’t be fooled! Start reading the ingredients list on the package. If the first ingredient listed says “wheat flour”, and the third or fourth ingredient says “whole wheat flour”, then you have to ask yourself, What was the “wheat flour” that was listed at the top as the main ingredient? White flour! Remember, white flour is made from wheat! So, the phrase “wheat flour” and “white flour” can be interchangeable. See image below. One loaf of bread states clearly that it’s whole wheat bread. The other says it’s wheat. Would you be fooled into buying the loaf on the left?
step 3: Eat nothing made with white sugar and all the “copycat” sugars you see on the labels of “food” (start reading labels!), like corn syrup, brown sugar, high fructose corn syrup, maltodextrin, honey and so forth. Substitute raw sugar or raw honey for these mischief-makers.
Don’t let the word “natural” fool you into thinking you’re eating “health food”! The issue is not, “Is this flour all natural?” The issue is, “Is this flour made from Whole grains?”
(And here’s another thing. The word “natural” has no legal meaning! “Natural” can be on a food label and it doesn’t obligate the manufacturer to be telling the truth; only the word “organic” can be trusted. That word is legally binding. When you see “USDA Organic” on a product label, you can trust that.)
So, as I was saying, white flour and white sugar exist only for one reason….you guessed it….
Exactly! They have infinite shelf-life because they can’t go bad–they can’t go bad because there’s nothing in them, no nutrients! Moreover, they’re acidic! White sugar and white flour are acidic, and the body doesn’t tolerate an acid Ph, it must be slightly alkaline; therefore, minerals, to act as buffers, are pulled from the bones when you eat these “foods”! Consequently, white sugar and white flour cause mineral deficiencies. In case I haven’t been clear, white flour and white sugar have had the fiber and nutrients removed from them for the sake of shelf life. Eating them will adversely affect your health.
Here’s an interesting fact, there’s a study that showed that the more sugar test subjects ate at a single meal, the less active their white blood cells became. Reaching a certain level, white blood cell activity stopped altogether. Sugar, then, suppresses the immune system!
Step 4: Drink no more pasteurized/homogenized milk! This substance isn’t even natural.
How can milk not be natural?!
It is if it comes from the cow! But milk was no more meant to be boiled than orange juice (but they boil that too; so, sorry, but, you can’t drink “orange juice” either–unless you juice it yourself, and how hard is that, really?) No more “juice” of any kind–unless you juice it yourself. All so-called “juices” have been boiled (pasteurized), for the sake of….you guessed it….
Exactly! These are all unnatural products that your body doesn’t even recognize as real, so all they do is create mischief.
You can buy real milk as it comes from the cow (which is full of enzymes, unlike pasteurized milk) at numerous places, not the least of which, as I just learned today, is Whole Foods! Shana, get me a picture of Whole Foods!
Do a google search for “Whole Foods Market” or “raw milk” and the name of your city or state and see what you come up with.
All the bad things associated with “milk”, like mucus formation and allergies, are a function of the pasteurization and homogenization process. My only regret is that I can’t get raw butter and raw cream.
What, exactly, is homogenization?
Well, Shana, it’s crazy but homogenization serves absolutely no purpose other than making the milk look uniform! It’s a way of stopping the cream from rising to the top. But if it’s normal for the cream to rise to the top, what in blazes have they done to stop it? It can’t be good; and in fact, it’s not.
Read this, I found it on the internet about homogenization:
“When fat globules are forcibly broken up by mechanical means, it allows an enzyme associated with milk fat, known as xanthine oxidase, to become free and penetrate the human intestinal wall.
“Once xanthine oxidase gets through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream, it is capable of creating scar damage to the heart and arteries, which in turn may stimulate the body to release cholesterol into the blood in an attempt to lay a protective fatty material on the scarred areas.
This can lead to arteriosclerosis and related cardiovascular conditions!” (“Don’t Drink Milk-Here’s Why” by Yuri Elkaim,)
Hard to believe, isn’t it?
[Uh-oh! This just in! Whole Foods has just removed all the raw milk from its shelves! I’m serious! I knew it was too good to last! Thanks alot, Whole Foods! Way to stand up to the Dairy Industry! If you’re in Philadelphia like I am, you can buy raw milk at The Farmstand in the Reading Terminal Market at 12th and Arch. The rest of you, ask at your health food store or go to www.realmilk.com and check for your state.]
I was reading an article in Homeopathy Today, this month’s issue (Winter ’09), which told how people from cultures in non-western, non-industrialized societies, with no access to supermarkets and manufactured food, don’t get sick, don’t have tooth decay, don’t have chronic disease…. It just gives you an idea of how we’ve fooled ourselves into believing what “normal” is. To us, cavities are normal, getting an infection is normal, asthma is typical, insomnia is typical, constipation is average…and then we go to our doctor to complain about one of these things, and you notice the doctor never says, “Well what do you expect? Look at what you eat! Your diet is devoid of anything that would support life, no wonder you’re constipated! Stop eating donuts! Stop drinking soda!” No, instead he is most likely thinking, “I only need to write one more prescription for that cholesterol lowering drug and my next golfing vacation is free!” Yes, because you see, my friends, unfortunately, according to CNN, doctors are being bought off. In 2009, doctors were the recipients of $282,000,000 by the pharmaceutical industry! Click here to see for yourself:
