Raw, Organic Food
You may have heard about people (such as me!) eating raw food and
drinking juices to detoxify themselves but you may not know the ins and
outs of why it is done. The truth is that cooked food is considered a
poison to the human body. Every time cooked food is eaten, white blood
cells multiply to get rid of the invader. This process of white blood cell
proliferation is known as digestive leucocytosis
Our bodies are not designed to eat cooked food and when this occurs,
it has to be eliminated as soon as possible or else stored in adipose (fat)
tissue. An unhealthy body will, of course, attempt to assimilate the
deranged nutrients contained in cooked food. However, human beings are
frugivores and can only live healthful lives on a diet primarily consisting
of raw foods, nuts, seeds and green leafy vegetables. Raw plant material
is easily recognised by the body and eating food in this state is the
preferred route to achieve maximum vitality and optimum health.
This is what the majority of people would like to have - yet it's
attainment is, sadly, very difficult - if indeed possible at all - on
standard U.K. fare.
For many years, the media held that we must have lots of protein and
calcium in the daily diet and are informed that meat and animal products
are the way to provide these. In reality, animal products are the hardest
substances for the human body to digest, requiring enormous amounts of our
energy - leaving little left to replenish and restore health - eating these
foods every day will inevitably result in poor health directly, or
indirectly. This is not only because they are cooked, but also because
humans are ill-designed physiologically to consume flesh foods or flesh
products. The consumption of these types of foods result in an inevitable
putrefaction, and the resultant poisonous by-products play havoc with
Therefore, the only way we can take in sufficient nutrients, whilst
minimising use of digestive energy, is to eat whole and raw. A diet
consisting of solely or predominantly raw food gives us all the nutrients
we need - and the body will provide the rest. Raw food is a requirement of
the body for vital functioning. Indeed, upon embarking upon a raw food and
juices diet, many people have allowed their bodies to heal from life-
threatening disease, such as cancer, heart disease, etc and have turned
around the aging process.
Do whatever you can to increase your consumption of raw, organic food
and allow your hard-working bodies to cleanse, detoxify and heal.
