What is: Raw Foods?

What is wrong with man that he does not know what to eat or what his food is today? http://dherbs.com/uploads/news/id4724/basketofveggiesthumb.jpg

There are many people who don't know what raw foods are or what constitutes raw food. In fact, many people don't know what to eat in order to sustain their health and well being.

People in the Western world eat too much meat, dairy and refined grains and starches. They also consume too many harmful synthetic chemicals hidden flavor enhancers, hormones, sweeteners, additives, and preservatives.

 

The word "raw" means uncooked or existing in its natural condition.

Deriving from the Greek word "kreas", the word raw also means that the food is not prepared with heat. Therefore, a raw food is not processed, manufactured, adjusted, treated, or refined. If you are consuming a raw food, you are digesting it in its natural state. In order to obtain the most nutrients from your food, you should eat them raw.

Alkalinity counteracts acidity and the greatest alkalizing foods on the planet are fruits, vegetables, sea vegetable, and some nuts, seeds, and grains. When eaten raw, these foods greatly nourish and build the tissues of the body.


Meat-Eaters

Surprisingly, meat eaters don't subscribe to the eating of all dead animals. They have been conditioned to eat certain animals. In the U.S., meat-eaters enjoy eating the meat of cows, sheep, pigs, chicken, turkey, fish, shrimp, lobster, and crab. Some will also eat the dead flesh of rabbit, squirrel, possum, buffalo, and ostrich.

Some meat eaters even consume the flesh of these creatures including their intestines, tongue, stomach, brain, back end, and neck. However, these same people will not dare to touch the flesh of dead rats, hamsters, dogs, cats, snakes, lizards, or turtles. Why? Because they have not been conditioned to favor some animals over others.

The Truth About Protein

The meat-eaters' number one reason for consuming animal meat is for protein, but most meat-eaters do not know where the protein comes from.

Protein is comprised of 22 amino acids. There is no single body part or gland of any organism contains all 22 amino acids, so the rest must be ingested through diet.

For protein from an animal source, the animal must be freshly killed and eaten down to the bone. This is what you see in the wild of nature. Animals in the wild don't cook their meat before eating it. They don't refine, manufacture, dilute, or process their meat; they kill the animal and then eat it immediately. Now that's a true carnivore that functions according to the biological law of carnivorism.

Humans remove the benefit of animal protein by cooking meat, and refining it with harmful chemicals such as sodium nitrate, synthetic growth hormones, and antibiotics.

If the meat is uncooked and eaten entirely, it can provide essential body nutrients. However, this is only true for true carnivores. However, if the meat is cooked, the entire molecular structure is changed or altered, removing any beneficial protein.


Fruits and Vegetables

As humans, our true food is derived from plants. We are frugavores or fruitarians by nature. Our true food grows on plants and trees.

The flesh of fruit, vegetables, seeds, and some nuts and grains are materials that contain serious nutrients such as minerals, trace elements, vitamins, B-vitamins, and amino acids. These nutrients can be assimilated 100% by the human digestive track and can maintain life and growth.

Did you know that the word "vegetable" derives from the word "vegetate," which means "growth"? Eating vegetables sustains and supports growth. When you consume vegetables, you are supplying your body with beneficial nutrients that improve your overall health.

The word "enzyme" is actually synonymous with the word "life force?" Only raw fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and grains contain enzymes. They are most beneficial in their raw state, which means their "natural," "unrefined," and "undiluted" state.


Cooked and Dehydrated Foods Remove Nutrients

When you add heat, the molecular structure of the food is changed and it evolves from its natural state to a refined, processed, and manufactured state. Cooking destroys the vital nutrients and enzymes that is found in the raw state of a food.

The protease or protein-digesting enzyme in the human body is designed to strictly digest the proteins from plant sources, not animal sources.

If your food is processed, diluted, refined, or heated, it is not considered a raw food.

Even though dried fruit and/or food that have been dehydrated, they are technically processed, it can be eaten during a detox. Dehydrated foods simply lack water so that it can be preserved for a longer period of time. Also, a dehydrator heats food under 118 degrees so the enzymes are not killed or destroyed.


Preparing for a Raw Food Diet

If you're wanting the full benefit of a raw food diet, ask yourself these questions to make sure that you are making appropriate decisions:

  • Has the food been cooked?
  • Was heat applied to the food?
  • Has the food been manufactured?
  • Was the food processed?
  • Is the food alive?
  • If I cut the food in half, will it still grow?
  • If I heat the food up in the stove, oven, or microwave oven will it still grow?

    Q: I was wondering in your list you include foods that are classified as acidic (AC). I thought we were to avoid acidic foods so we can stay alkaline or do we need some acidic foods? I am guessing that there is a better explanation but please let me know. My partner and I have changed our diet after watching your videos and Dr Sebi’s video and we are very curious about this.

    A:

    I TRUST YOU READ MY ARTICLE THAT COVERS THESE FOODS BELOW. BELOVED, ACID FOODS ARE NOT BAD (UNHEALTHY) AND IN FACT YOU NEED SOME ACID FOODS TO BALANCE OUT THE DIET. THE PROBLEM IS WITH ACID-FORMING FOODS (COOKED FOODS: MEAT, DAIRY, REFINED STARCHES, REFINED GRAINS, ETC.). SO THERE'S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACID FOODS AND ACID-FORMING FOODS. AND YOU DO KNOW THAT MOST OF WHAT WE ARE EATING IS HYBRIDIZED, RIGHT? WE ARE NOT IN CONTROL OF WHAT WE ARE EATING TODAY. EVEN DR. SEBI EATS HYBRIDIZED FOODS. HE CAN'T HELP IT. WE DON'T CONTROL THE FOOD SUPPLY. REMEMBER, MA'AM: BALANCE IN ALL THINGS. SOME ACID FOODS ARE GOOD AND NECESSARY BUT ACID-FORMING FOODS ARE UNHEALTHY AS THEY CREATE MUCUS IN THE BODY.

    Q: What is the molecular structure of: (1) a banana , and (2) a piece of cooked meat?

    A:

    YOU WOULD NEED A MICROSCOPE TO BE SPECIFIC AND TECHNICAL. THE BANANA WOULD CONTAIN NATURAL AMINO ACIDS, MINERALS (ESP. POTASSIUM) WITH AN ATOMIC WEIGHT/NUMBER, ETC. IT WOULD ASSIMILATE INTO THE BODY AND HELP REPAIR IT, AID GROWTH AND MAINTENANCE TO SUSTAIN LIFE. THE COOKED MEAT WOULD BE A FRANKENSTEIN IF YOU WILL. THE COOKED MEAT WOULD BECOME INORGANIC VIA COOKING (ALTERING). IT WILL NOT ASSIMILATE INTO THE BODY, WHICH IS WHY MEAT CAUSES PREMATURE AGING VIA DISEASE. PLEASE MY ARTICLE ON THIS SUBJECT â€THE DANGERS OF EATING MEAT!â€. I HAVE HUNDREDS OF OTHER INQUIRIES I MUST ANSWER.

    Q: I am a 55 year old female. I have an overactive bladder. I am trying to control it myself, without medication. I have not tried herbs. I eat fruits, vegetables, grains and proteins (not beef or pork). I added back more meat proteins 1 1/2 years ago because I was becoming so tired and lacking energy. (I read The Schwartzbein Diet, which helped convince me to add more protein.) I don't eat much sugar, salt (only 500 mg./day) or hardly any processed foods. I drink water and licorice tea, because it makes me feel good. I believe in the power of positive thinking. Can you help me with this?

    A:

    A great enemy to the urinary system is MEAT! Meat is not a source of protein unless eaten RAW like carnivores eat it in nature. Cooked animal flesh is not protein to the body, but a foreign substance that is pivotal in the development of cancer.

    I recommend you give our Full Body Detox a try and after detoxing, the ideal formula for you is our Kidneys Bladder-Adrenal formula.

    Q: How often should one eat cook food? I'm a vegan, I do not consume any meat, seafood, milk what so ever. I eat water cresses like everyday so as cook food. Like white rice with black bean sauce, spinach, and pasta at time's I'll eat some Chinese fried rice, veggie roll, steamed vegetables, any advice?

    A:

    You can eat cooked food as much as you like being a vegan and all. Myself, about 2 days out of the week I will eat totally raw. However, I just go with the flow.

    As long as one is not eating animal flesh, dairy products, refined grains and starches, etc., the person is good to go. Just make sure you detoxify the body at least 1-2 times per year.
