Why Raw Foods?
It was the optimal diet when God created mankind. "And God said, 'I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the earth, and every tree that has fruit with see in it. They will be yours for food.'" ~ Genesis 1:29 NIV
Maximum Nutrition- vitamins and other nutrients become damaged when heated by cooking practices
Detoxification- the body's vital energy is freed up for healing and cleansing by eating easy to digest raw foods. When you stop eating cooked food, your body doesn't have to work as hard to eliminate the toxic dehydrating residue.
Quick Digestion- a proper raw diet eliminates constipation and the transit time of waste matter shortens to 24 hours or less, eliminating the toxemia that occurs as the colon recycles toxins.
Overall Improved Health & Energy- many people on a raw diet (even high-fat, raw) lose some excess weight and experience clearer sinuses, improved breathing, better sleep, clear skin, less mucous discharge, increased energy, and heightened mental clarity.
Oxygenated Cells- cleaner blood and healthier red blood cells better transport fresh oxygen to all the cells in the body, resulting heightened mental clarity and allowing subtle healing to take place within the body that may not be easily noticed.
Optimal Body Weight- By eating the 80-10-10 Diet (mainly fruits) without using condiments or salt you will lose any remaining excess fat or water weight, but not healthy lean tissue. It is important to make sure you eat enough calories to maintain your weight.
Ultimate Well-being & Vitality- you will experience fewer colds, flus, and aches than people who eat a high-fat diet, raw or cooked. Acne disappears and permanent relief from persistent diabetes and candida symptoms finally occurs. More important, people on 80-10-10 Diet have the opportunity (given proper sleep, exercise, sunshine, and so on) to experience a quantum leap in overall physical, mental, and emotional health that surpasses the mere absence of disease or symptoms. The ultimate benefit is greater longevity and improved quanity of life.
