I am very excited to have found raw food. I believe it to be another secret that lies right under our very noses, the same as meditation and breathwork. As the toxins and poisons of cooked food leave your body, mind and spirit, a whole person transformation seems to take place! Your traumas come up for healing, your life on every level improves; you feel great and your ability to manifest instantly increases, as you plug into the power source, by cleansing your body, third eye, etc. As the raw food king, David Wolfe writes, ‘it is powerful information’. Basically, it is hard to imagine how fantastic you feel on raw food, your mind clear and calm, rather than fuzzy and out of control, your body and feelings centred and peaceful, your energy levels go up and up.
Cooked food takes out about 80% of the nutrients from your food and the toxins in cooked food and the lack of enzymes, leads your body to create a mucus that lines the inside of your alimentary canal and colon, just to protect itself. It’s not natural to feel like we do in modern civilization – exhausted, over-taxed, fuzzy headed, barely able to cope! As some of the writers on raw food explain, our natural food is raw fruits and raw green, leafy vegetables. It makes perfect sense when you think about it; eat what mother nature provides, in the form she provides it and all is well. I read somewhere that if we were meant to eat meat, we would have the incisors to tear at entrails, and the short digestive system of meat eaters such as wolf and dog.
Eating raw food returns us to the paradisiacal state! Besides raw chocolate cheesecake is indeed divine!
I got into raw food for 6 months about 11 years ago and never felt so amazing. I have wrestled with it on and off ever since, but recently have found my way back to it. I have been reading avidly as it keeps me motivated and interested. I recommend David Wolfe’s books ‘Sunfood Diet Success System’ and ‘Eating for Beauty’, as well as any books by Victoria Boutenko. Her book ‘Raw Family’, tells of the transformation of her whole family from their various illnesses of arthritis, obesity, depression, arrythmia, arthritis, asthma, hyperthyroid problems and juvenile diabetes to perfect health in under 6 months. They then all walked 2000 miles across America as a family! I rest my case for now.
