"Eat What YOU Are Biologically Suited To"
A simple message: If you had a car which runs best on unleaded, why would you persist trying to make it run on 4 star or diesel?
Most of us have sick behaviour because our mindset is to think that it's OK to eat what we can get away with rather than what we're actually suited to. Consequently, it makes us even more sick and keeps us trapped in varying degrees of unwellness. The majority of us are on toxic overload most of the time. Our poor immune defenses are endlessly on full-alert and then start kicking-back to give us reactions and food intolerances. If we take little or no notice or when we think we'll get rid of the symptoms by druging and suppression it then moves to the next stages of illness and disease in varying levels of severity. And, then we die before we would otherwise need to.
(When I think of the cycles of birth and rebirth, no wonder we keep on going round and suffering the same old stuff, we're living in ignorance of our biological nature! It's not just about emotional liberation and spiritual transcendence, there are physiological aspects too which, in my opinion, are not about mind over matter.)
If I could have a pound for every time someone has said to me "oh, I listen to my body and eat intuitively" I'd be awash with dosh. Generally, these words come from people with addiction who don't know it (or are in denial), and they believe what they're saying to be true and OK.
This would have been so years ago before the food and chemical industries took over to over sensitise our taste buds, get us hooked on addictive toxic poisions. Typically, thesedays, the things which we crave are the things which do us most damage, not the other way round. This is a perversion of what we think of as intuitive "it makes me feel good" (for a moment only, because you're feeding an addiction, not your body).
Do you intuitively eat salad leaves stored in inert gas to keep it fresh or a tomato or fruit deprived of natural ripening, stripped it's minerals and nutrition? What's intuitive about eating sugar or thickening agents? Where's the intuition in eating any processed food or pre-prepared meals bought in a supermarket? Where's the intuition in sweetners or flouride in water? All these things should carry labels Class 'A' Drugs (additive)!!
We've had a lifetime of conditioning as to what's right. Generally, parents don't really know and do their best to get by. We think Doctors are some kind of authority yet they get virtually no training as a General Practitioner, one day! All the nutrition gurus .... opens another can of worms all selling their way as right. We are lost in the maze and the haze. Trouble is, often we don't think we're lost in the maze and just carry on doing what we're doing until our body kicks back and cries out 'I'm sick and tired'.
Many of us are blinded by moral and ethical issues. When if comes to what we are biologically suited to, the 'raw/vegan Vs meat debate' is the least of our worries. How far food has travelled? Organic? GM? In season? Animal derivative? Peter D'Adamo and his father James, both naturopathic doctors have done some very interesting research about blood types. Two points to note here:
"Blood types are as fundemental as creation itself. In the masterful logic of nature, the blood types follow an unbroken trail from the earliest moment of human creation to the present day. They are the signature of our ancient ancestors on the indestructible parchment of history.
"Now we have begun to discover how to use the blood type as a cellular fingerprint that unravels as many of teh major mysteries surrounding our quest for good health. This work is an extension of the recent groundbreaking findings concerning human DNA. Our understanding of blood type takes the science of genetics one step further by stating uneqivocally that every human being is utterly unique. There is no right or wrong lifestyle or diet; there are only right or wrong choices to be made based on our individual genetic codes."
"Your blood type is a more reliable measure of your identity than race, culture or geography. It is a genetic blueprint for who you are, a guide to how you can live most fully. The key to the significance of blood type can be found in the story of human evolution: Type O is the oldest; Type A evolved with the agrarian society; Type B emerged as humans migrated north into colder, harsher territories; and Type AB was a thoroughly modern adaptation, a result of intermingling of disparate groups. This evolutionary story relates directly to the dietary needs of each blood type today."
He goes on to explain other crucial sub-groupings and why some foods are nutritious and beneficial for one type and toxic poision to to another. This gives a very interesting dynamic reasoning to look into and further rsearch.
Personally, I generally go along with Metabolic Profiling as outlined by Joseph Mercola. I do go along with the idea that grains and carbohydrates are probably not natural to our species and are linked to 'feeding-the-masses' as our early societies began to get bigger, part of the control devices. Drs. Brasco & Cordain have interesting words to say.
If in doubt as to what you are biologically suited to, don't just read books and listen to people, get tested! Compare tests!! There are many ways, from hair analysis to a number of bioelectro diagnostic systems ranging from Vega systems, EAV (Electro Acupuncture according to Voll), EDS (Electro Dermal Screening), and more.
Some the latest technology (which is of special interest to me) 'reads' your quantum Biofield and offers treatments using encoded organic colloidal minerals in 'charged' drops of water acting as a magnetic signpost to your field, realigning to help restore optimal health. If you'd like to find out more, do drop me a line. In the meantime, three basics:
1. Take charge: Unless you want to be another early-death statistic, a number in the matrix, get into the driving seat of what you eat.
2. Stop processed food: Stop ingesting mind altering additives and other poisons, other toxic substances even though they give a 'taste good' sensation, and are quick and convenient. Relearn how to prepare your own food for your own body.
3. Drink quality water: To rehydrate (think of the memory of water). There's plenty of evidence that most conditions are improved, if not healed by proper rehydration which means drinking a good 2 litres per day or pure water. Better still, make it sun-charged.
Some of the people I've met or talked to and whose work I respect are Elaine Bruce, John Fielder, Robert Snaidach. Don't take my words for it, do your own research, get tested and work out what's right for you.
