We understand that there is very rarely, if ever, only one predisposing cause in regards to symptoms of ill health – it is usually, and in most cases, a combination of all eight essential factors, viz: Foods, Air, Water, Sunlight, Exercise, Rest, Mental Poise, Spinal Integrity.
However, if there were one disease-producing factor that is more predominant than any other – it would be “improperly constituted food.”
The following snippets will address 10 factors in our Western diet that contribute toward ‘disease symptoms.’
1. Foods of poor quality – grown on impoverished soil and fed chemicals to stimulate growth – their life-force is stunted.
2. Foods heated beyond their critical temperature – each food likes to be eaten at a specific temperature – only then does it open its vault and reveal its sweetness and fragrance.
3. Frozen foods – snap frozen nutrition – at what point of nutrition were they frozen.
4. Irradiated foods – put in the same category with frozen – dead food.
5. Non foods – almost anything wrapped, bagged, boxed, canned or otherwise kept together by something other than a living skin.
6. Those articles that are sold by their emotional appeal – containing additives, preservatives, colorings, emulsifiers, etc. – concoctions of R&D people in laboratories trying to make products that resemble food properties – they are but a poor imitation of nature’s bountiful fruits.
7. Excess amounts of foods beyond the true needs of the body – need we say more? The average person has almost no idea of the quantity of foods needed to maintain a condition of health.
8. Foods eaten out of cycle with the body’s rhythms – 24 hour digestion is not natural.
9. Foods picked before ripeness and shipped to destinations out of the natural growth cycle – and arriving with almost no sweetness (read as no sugars) and therefore having little value in supplying the vital elements necessary for the growth of tissue and supply of nerve force.
10. The eating of foods that are not the most efficient source of energy transmutation for that particular species – as in the human species eating flesh foods.
Please remember that playground joke from your childhood:
Q: How does one eat an elephant?
A: A bite at a time.
Life is like that – sometimes doing a little bit a time is the best way to get to where you are going. All the best in taking a little bite at a time as you improve your dietary requirements.
