The new Raw Food Movement goes back to the Natural Hygenics Movement of the late 1950's. Dr Ann Wigmore the founder of natural hygenics taught that there are enzymes in uncooked and unprocessed foods that have extraordinary health benifits. In Dr. Edward Howell's words: "Enzymes are substances that make life possible. They are needed for every chemical reaction that occurs in our body. Without enzymes no activity at all would take place. Neither vitamins, minerals, or hormones can do any work without enzymes." Enzymes are desroyed at just 120 degrees feirenhiet. Cooked food does not contain enzymes.
For every health-concious individual who is interested in cutting edge research in the field of health and science, I ask that you consider the effects that cooked food has on our bodies and on our environments. It is essential for the improvment of society that we clear the way for studies into the miraculous health benifits that are inherent in the raw-food world. It is not only essential to our own health and quality of life, but it is what is required for a dramatic transformation od civilization into the next age of innovation.
There are at least 6 million constituents composing our organism. Scientists have identified only about a thousand of these substances in things like bread, cheese, and cooked animal muscle, and they have written in great length about each of these substances in isolation. Consequentaly the food industry has gone to great lengths to promote and distribute these few nutrients in their cooked and processed foodstuffs, all prepared to be cooked again on the home stove, grill or oven. The truth is that these edibles are only the degenerated, lifeless
remains of a few of the six million constituents that our complex and perfect organism require for proper functioning.
Human nourishment is very simple. All raw-plant-foods contain all the nutrients that we need to thrive. All raw-plant-foods are whole and balanced foods. What is a buffallo composed of if not just raw grasses? A lion is composed of those same grasses, but its organism is designed to absorb its raw materials by eating the herbivore. Now, while buffallo's are designed towards eating grasses and greens, and lions are designed towards eating raw meat, the human-being is geared towards eating fruits, nuts, seeds, and greens. We prefer variety. Consider the fact that you could try a new taste, a new fruit everyday for the rest of your life and not try them all! Eating raw-organic-plant-foods is the most natural part of the human physiology.
We do not accually need alot of food if we eat highly nutritive and mineralized foods. The food companies know that the more nutritive-free food you eat the more you will feel the need to eat compulsively. They will even claim that their food is wholesome, balanced, or yielding some "preventive" component against diseases to gain a profit. Why should we pay such exagerated prices for such weak foods? Cooked foods depress the immune system, and drains us of energy, enzymes, and minerals. Your body must divert enzymes from healing and building itself to the digestion of cooked food. Eating cooked food exausts the pancreas (the enzymatic organ,) it weakens the ability of your body to absorb the broken down nutrients by accumulating on the walls of the intestines and colon, and in turn leads to a chain reaction of weakend organs and serious health problems. Huge amounts of nutrients are desroyed by various refining and prcessing methods. It is futile to put so much time, money, and resourses into this degeneration of our food just to spend more time and money on various medical options.
The raw food diet is absolutely eco-friendly. The ecological and economical immplications of the raw food diet are immense! Raw-foodists produce little to no trash, but they do produce the finest fertilizer (raw compost). Plant based agriculture is highly efficient, and the yield of such crops is much greater animal factory farms, (you could feed 100 vegetarians with the amount of land it takes to feed one meat-eater
[and the animals eaten]). Most of the grain grown in the United States is used in cattle feed. Commercial grain crops must also be grown with chemical fertilizer and pesticides because of their weak genetic nature. And this in turn adds to the amount of toxins found in meat and dairy products. Commercial grain crops strip enormous amounts of minerals and nutrients from the land."The Bread Basket" of the United States is threatened by meat, grain and other kinds of damaging agricultural. Commercial meat and grain agriculture is already highly inefficient, and in the end the products are practically all burned up. By what flawed logic do we continue to subject ourselves to the vicious cycles of the cooked food world?
The fastest way to massive health, success, and prosperity is through detoxification and self-renewal with a diet of as close to 100% raw-organic-plant-food as possible. Your body is consistantly building itself with the raw material that you eat. In just seven years every cell in tour body is replaced! If you build yourself on raw-materials and optimistic thoughts, you can experience an all whole new and improved you. The Raw Food Movement is exploding with "raw power" and countless people are returning to Paradise! Pollution, diseases and the apparent food shortages have no natural place in this world.
Here are a few of the many benifits that raw-nutrition has proven for people:
-helping to rid oneself of addictions
-the loss of all addictions
-needing less sleep
-becoming more resistant to the elements
-skin becoming more radiant and glowing
-skin tans becoming more attractive
-hair becoming thicker and richer
-the reversal of hair loss
-eye color may change and gain luster
-cureing "common illnesses"
-giving one a natural high on life
-giving one greater karma
-getting rid of stress of all kinds
-getting rid of the need for poison medicines
-getting rid of the need for herbal medicines
-reconnecting one to the natural universe
