Foods That Heal

FOODS THAT HEAL

4 Steps to Incredible Health

 

1) Organic Food- All foods eaten should be pure; without having been genetically modified or grown with the use of pesticides, herbicides, hormones, antibiotics, insecticides, etc… These chemicals, carcinogens, and poisons are a significant cause of disease. The nutrients in organic foods have also been found to be much higher than the chemically inferior conventional produce. Organic food not only tastes better, it is better for the land and animals. Check out local farmers markets and natural food markets.

 

2) Vegan- A vegan diet does not contain ANY animal foods at all (all meats including fish, dairy, eggs, milk cheese, etc…) Vegan foods contain NO cholesterol. Numerous scientific and medical journals have conducted studies that convincingly demonstrate that animal foods are a significant contributing factor to ALL degenerative diseases: cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, arthritis, etc…

 

"Vegetarians have the best diet; they have the lowest rates of coronary heart disease of any group in the country... Vegetarians have 40% the cancer rate of meat eaters"-William Castelli, MD, Framingham Health Study, the longest running study at diet and heart disease in world medical history.

 

3) Whole Food- There are trillions of species on this planet, but only one alters their food supply. That same species experiences a plethora of degenerative disease unknown in other species. Why? We eat foods that have been refined, processed, and preserved with chemicals and food additives in order to prolong their shelf life (Whole wheat becomes white flour). Or how about partially hydrogenated oils? Small particles of nickel or copper are added and the mix is heated to very high temperatures under pressure for up to eight hours while hydrogen gas is injected. This process destroys the essential fatty acids in the oil and replaces them with deformed trans fatty acids. This blocks or delays the work of the essential fatty acids, creating deficiencies and imbalance throughout the metabolism, including fatty deposits in the arteries. Prolonging shelf life makes big companies a lot more money and may be a little easier for us, but is it worth the heavy cost of degenerative disease? The body simply cannot digest partial food, refined and partially hydrogenated oils, or anything else not in its natural, whole state. All of the recommended foods below are in their whole state. It's the way nature intended us to eat.

 

4) Raw Food- Food that has been cooked over 118 degrees Fahrenheit has destroyed ALL digestive enzymes in the food. That means your body will have a great deal of difficulty digesting and assimilating the nutrients in the food. The vitamins/minerals and other trace nutrients are also greatly diminished in the cooking process. Low enzyme count leads to low energy, degenerative disease, and aging. Attempt to eat a much higher quantity of fresh, raw fruits and vegetables.

Real Health Foods

The Superfoods- So named, because of their incredibly rich nutrient content. These foods are the richest sources of vitamins, minerals, and trace elements on the planet! Spirulina Blue-Green Algae, Chlorella, Cereal Grasses (alfalfa, barley, wheat), Dulse Seaweed, Kelp, Acerola Cherry.
 

Grains- Whole wheat, millet, barley, rye, oats, quinoa, corn, buckwheat, bulgur, and brown & wild rice among others. [Eating Raw? Always soak nuts/seeds before consuming to break down the enzyme inhibitors (nature’s defense mechanism of not being eaten before they can sprout and grow) which interfere with digestion. Soak in a bowl of distilled/purified water for about 5-8 hours, depending on size. Overnight is usually a good amount of time. Remove and discard the grains that float as they likely have some rancidity. Drain and rinse well and then enjoy.]
 

Vegetables- Kale, spinach, potatoes, yams, taro , zucchini, carrot, squash, onion, broccoli, cauliflower, dandelion greens, mustard greens, parsley, beet, beet greens, celery, green/yellow/red bell peppers, cayenne peppers, corn, cabbage, wild lettuces, radishes, mushrooms, asparagus, cucumber, eggplant, artichoke, chives, leeks, green beans, turnip greens, etc…
 
The Miracle Vegetable Broth- This is a must in any healing, detoxifying program! It will flush out toxins, poisons, and unhealthy salts/acids. It will also give you a concentrated amount of vitamins and minerals. Make a large pot and keep refrigerated for up to one week. Use organic produce only.
Put the following in a large pot:   Cut the skin off 3-6 inches of raw ginger root and then dice or grate it and put it in the pot along with 1 whole chopped onion, carrots, squash, celery, parsley, any dark leafy greens, and a few strands of kombu (seaweed) if available.  Fill up the rest of the pot with purified water until the vegetables are covered.  The last ingredient is 3-4 diced cloves of garlic: leave out for 5 minutes and then place in pot.  Simmer for 2-4 hours and refrigerate for 2-3 days.  That means you will probably need to make about 2 batches for the cleanse which lasts about 5 days once you begin.  This is an amazing soup which gives the entire digestive tract, as well as the liver and gallbladder a rest and should help immediately provide pain relief and promote healing.  If you are constipated, you will not begin the cleanse immediately (as you will see below), but we do recommend immediately making and consuming this soup as soon as possible.
 

Fruits- olive, avocado, grape, raspberry, blackberry, mango, honeydew, strawberry, apple, blueberry, lemon, lime, pear, apricot, orange, cherry, banana, cantaloupe, pineapple, grapefruit, papaya, peach, prune, etc…
 

Juices- Buy a Juicer... We're not talking about diluted, pasteurized, preserved store bought juice. We're talking about mixing your own assortment of fresh, raw, organic vegetables and fruit and juicing them yourself. Juicing is an excellent means of adding raw fruits and vegetables to your diet. Since more and more healthful substances in fruit and vegetables are being discovered all the time (i.e. phytochemicals- the compounds that have been shown to prevent and combat cancer), it is highly recommended you consume 2-4 glasses of fresh juices. You'll be getting easy to digest, concentrated nutrients and enzymes which are a must for any healing or preventative health program. You will be amazed at how delicious they are and will also feel an immediate boost of energy and vitality. Always store left-over juice in tightly sealed glass jars to avoid losing the valuable enzymes to oxidation.
 

Legumes- Peas, lentils, and beans (kidney , white, navy beans, garbanzo, pinto, black) etc… [Eating Raw? Always soak nuts/seeds before consuming to break down the enzyme inhibitors (nature’s defense mechanism of not being eaten before they can sprout and grow) which interfere with digestion. Soak in a bowl of distilled/purified water for about 5-8 hours, depending on size. Overnight is usually a good amount of time. Remove and discard the legumes that float as they likely have some rancidity. Drain and rinse well and then enjoy.]
 

Nuts/Seeds- Coconut, almonds, walnuts, sesame, sunflower, pumpkin seeds, brazil nuts, cashew, peanut, chestnut, etc… [Eating Raw? Always soak nuts/seeds before consuming to break down the enzyme inhibitors (nature’s defense mechanism of not being eaten before they can sprout and grow) which interfere with digestion. Soak in a bowl of distilled/purified water for about 5-8 hours, depending on size. Overnight is usually a good amount of time. Remove and discard the nuts/seeds that float as they likely have some rancidity. Drain and rinse well and then enjoy.]

 

Sprouted Seeds/Beans- Alfalfa, broccoli, sunflower, radish, wheat, mung bean, lentil, etc…[Greatly increases nutrient levels (including enzymes), digestibility, and can enhance flavor.]
 

Sprouting

1) First soak as directed above.

2) Then put drained seeds nuts, seeds, grains, or legumes in any of the following:

-a colander

-a natural fiber bag with good drainage

-a jar with a screen or natural fiber loose weave fabric stretched over the opening

-or any other container you can cover loosely.

Note: Do not cover air-tight as the seeds will mold.

3) Rinse and rain at least twice a day for 1-3 days or until they have small sprouts coming out of them.

4) That’s it!! Store sprouts in refrigerator and enjoy. Continue to rinse once a day while in the refrigerator (they will sprout at a much slower rate). When they become too "sickly sweet", they have sprouted too long and can be discarded.

 

Amazing Natural Supplements

  • GARLIC- (Raw and organic) Garlic is the best, most effective broad spectrum anti-biotic, anti-viral, anti-fungal herb known. In research, it has been diluted to 1 part per 125,000 and still killed bacteria. It is an extremely effective and powerful broad-spectrum antibiotic, which means it kills all types of bacteria on contact, gram negative and gram positive. Garlic's use has been proven to destroy many types of bacteria including Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, Typhoid, Diphtheria, Cholera, E. Coli, Bacterial Dysentery (Traveler's Diarrhea), Tuberculosis, Tetanus, Rheumatic bacteria, Bacillus cereus, bacillus subtilis, Mycobacterium smegmatis, Streptomyces griseus, Staphylococcus aureus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Klebsiella, pneumoniae, and Xanthomonas maltophilia and many others. Many doctors feel it's the cure for the common cold. It destroys various viruses that cause upper respiratory infections and influenza, the ones that antibiotics are useless against. Garlic destroys on contact, the viral infections of Measles, Mumps, Mononucleosis, Chicken Pox, Herpes Simplex #1 and #2, Herpes Zoster, Viral Hepatitis, Scarlet Fever, Rabies, and others. Blend 3-6 cloves in a blender with some non-citrus fruit juice.

  • Apple Cider Vinegar- (Organic, raw, unfiltered) Extremely beneficial for many different maladies. Antibacterial/antifungal/antiviral. Extremely good for eliminating mucous from the body. Put1-3 capfuls in a glass of water or mix in with salad dressing instead of vinegar.

  • Aloe Vera- (Organic) Aloe Vera (barbadensis miller) contains over 20 minerals, all of which are essential to the human body. The human body requires 22 amino acids for good health -- eight of which are called "essential" because the body cannot fabricate them. Aloe Vera contains all of these eight essential amino acids, and 11 of the 14 "secondary" amino acids. Aloe Vera has Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C and E. Taken internally, it is known to aid in healing stomach disorders, ulcers, constipation, hemorrhoids, colitis, and all colon problems. It is also helpful against infections, varicose veins, skin cancer, arthritis, and has even been an effective treatment with AIDS. Take ½ cup 1-3 times daily.

Essential Fatty Acids

  • Flax Seed and Flax Seed Oil (Organic, Unfiltered, cold-pressed) AND/OR Vgean DHA  (docosahexaenoic acid).  Rich in the omega-3 essential fatty acids, magnesium, potassium, and fiber.  Also a good source of fiber, zinc, B vitamins, and protein. Contains No cholesterol, and low in saturated fat.
