Healing Through the Power of Raw Plant Based Food and The Benefits of a Plant Based Diet
“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food” Hippocrates
Raw food consumption will give the best immune system boost of any food category, high enzyme levels remove the “covering” from foreign invaders (bad bacteria) and renegade cells (like chronic immune deficiency cells) so the immune system can destroy them. Raw retains 100% of nutrients, enzymes and protein integrity, leaves behind no harmful residue and takes toxins out with them on their exit; the higher the raw, the more you will boost your immune system.
When a person eats cooked food, the immune system reacts as if it had just been contaminated by an army of toxic invaders; our white blood cells mobilise in large numbers and spring into action to annihilate this foreign army. The more cooked food a person eats, the more immune system is in a perpetual frenzy of activity; these depletes its energy and diminishes its effectiveness in maintaining health and fighting some of the more dangerous microbes and chemical toxins once they enter and colonise the system.
After many studies developed by Hippocrates a conclusion was made that raw food diet is the healthier choice for anyone looking to improve their health conditions in general.
Anyone fighting a serious illness, should stick to a raw plant based diet for a minimum of 2 years.
I assure you that is not difficult to get used to it, and once you have experienced the real flavour of food, you won't go back!
Benefits of a Plant Based Diet
When looking into diet choices, there are so many out there that it becomes hard to understand which one is actually the most beneficial to your health. I have spent many years studying and researching how a plant-based diet impacts on health, environment and social justice, and below you will find some of the information I have collected so far.
High consumption of animal products is related to the most serious cases of food poisoning, diseases, epidemics like swine flu and driving up levels of antibiotic resistance. The diseases include diabetes, arthritis, heart conditions, skin diseases, dementia and cancer; studies show that even if you have a pre-epigenetic tendency towards certain types of diseases, it can be changed through diet and exercise. When looking into cardio-vascular diseases, there’s no doubt that animal protein plays a massive part, meat is full of toxins. Within minutes of consuming meat, those toxins go into your bloodstream.
Most people would associate diabetes with the consumption of sugar, and believe it to be the main cause of the disease, but think again, the main cause is in fact animal fat.
A buildup of fat in the blood vessels incapacitates the cells, preventing them from absorbing the nutrients they need, and that’s exactly what a diet rich in animal protein does. One serving of processed meat per day increases the risk of diabetes by 51%.
Processed meat is clearly linked to cancer, increasing risks of colon cancer by 18%, which is why processed meats have been put in the same category as cigarettes by health authorities - ‘group 1 on carcinogens’.
Chicken meat is no better than red meat, it has 85 mg cholesterol per grams vs 89 mg from red meat, plus it is injected with carcinogenic substances. Men with prostate cancer increase the risk of the cancer progressing by four times if they have a high intake of poultry.
What about fish? Fish and seafood are not only mercury sponges, they also are high in saturated fat and cholesterol. Farmed fish are no better as they are full of antibiotics, which goes direct into their flesh. They might be less toxic than wild fish, but that does not mean that they are any healthier, they are simply less toxic.
Wondering about eggs? Eating one egg a day can be as bad as smoking five cigarettes a day for life expectancy, due to the clogging effect it has on blood vessels.
And dairy? Dairy is the number one product containing saturated fat. Dairy consumption can be linked to as asthma, psoriasis, acne, constipation, acid reflux… just to
name a few. Milk, is a hormone fluid, full of saturated fat, cholesterol and galactose. It does
not build strong bones, nor protect your bones from disease, this is a myth. Unfortunately, consuming dairy products increases the chances of women developing breast cancer by 49%.
Diabetes, heart disease and cancer are a $1.5 trillion industry. Instead of investing money in researching prevention, money is invested in researching ways to
cure those illnesses after they have developed.
An interesting fact you may not be aware of is that meat and dairy products are protected under the “Commonsense consumption act of 2009”; meaning you cannot sue producers if you develop any diseases as a result of consuming any of their products. They have learned how to protect themselves after the tobacco industry lost billions from lawsuits.
People are realising how animal products impact their health and the environment, this includes professional athletes, the number of whom are becoming vegan is constantly increasing.
A healthy mind and a healthy body are linked; we need a diet with full protein, complex carbohydrates, which are quickly digested and absorbed, as well as other plant-based nutrients to helps us stay strong and live a better quality of life. Add berries to your diet, as they are great antioxidants and will help your veins to stay clean, clearing away the fat stored on your vessels.
Hummus and avocado are great to eat when training or doing physical exercise, as they’re rich in complex carbohydrates and protein, they will also help maintain stamina.
A diet rich in plant-based protein lowers blood pressure, cholesterol levels and the risk of heart disease more than any other kind of diet. Our body needs foods that supply us with the nine essential amino acids that our bodies can’t make on their own; some plant-based foods have all of them (quinoa, buckwheat, soy, chia and hemp seed), while others have a mix of some and not others.
Have you ever wondered where animals get their protein from? The answer is from plants, cows and horses are vegetarians!
As long as foods like legumes, nuts, seeds, whole grains, fruits and vegetables are consumed daily, you are getting everything you need and more, not to mention that plant-based protein comes packed with fibre and antioxidants, while animal protein has none.
And so, a plant-based diet will definitely make your body and mind healthier, lighter and happier.
What does come along with animal protein is saturated fat, cholesterol, added hormones and antibiotics…
I would also like to mention that animal agriculture is a major cause of some of the world’s most urgent environmental problems, it is one of the leading drivers of climate change, land degradation, pollution, water depletion, rainforest destruction and species extinction. Feeding plants to farmed animals contributes to world hunger and food injustice, driving up the prices of basic foods in poor countries. With a growing world population, it is unsustainable to eat animal products, which are a highly inefficient way to produce food.
