Understanding Why Raw Food is Good for You
A raw foodist is someone who eats 75-100% live, nutritionally-dense organic uncooked and unprocessed food (and drinks pure, living water), enjoys delicious meals that optimize your health by alkalizing your body. It helps speed up your natural elimination system to get rid of the toxins created when you cook. Cooking foods and eating them create acidic toxins faster than your body can eliminate them so they back up, disrupting your body’s delicate acid/alkaline balance, a major cause of excess weight and disease. Do not heat foods above 118 degrees F. this will cause the chemical changes that create acidic toxins, including the carcinogens, mutagens and free-radicals associated with diseases like diabetes, arthritis, heart disease and cancer. Cooking depletes live enzymes that aid in digestion and overall health.
Your body is actually sort of an alkaline battery, running on electrons. All life-giving chemical reactions only happen when electrons or energy flows between atoms. Cooking or processing causes food to lose electrons – the source of the energy your body needs. Things that are healthy ‘contribute” electrons/energy, and are called alkalizing or “reducing.” Things that are unhealthy steal electrons/energy, and are called acidic or “oxidizing” (which means to burn up, rust, break down or decay).
Although your body is created to be balanced by being alkaline and acidic it thrives on a slightly alkaline level however today we are overly acidic. On the pH scale even a fraction of a point can create huge changes to health! One hydroxyl molecule (-OH) in 550 million is enough to make water conductive. In fact, most important processes in your body only work within a very narrow pH range. For example, if the pH of your blood falls to the low end of its normal range (~7.35-7.45), a .10 difference, it could reduce the oxygen levels in your blood by as much as 300%!
Raw food cost alittle more money then there conventional counter parts but technically it is not expensive and does not takes a lot of time to prepare. I am one of busiest people I know (mostly answering emails, calls and texts from my readers.:0) But when you do it correctly, a raw food diet is actually one of the easiest, most convenient and most economical ways you can live! Remember, raw foodists eat mostly organic food, which is 80% to 300% more nutritionally dense loaded with available electrons/energy. As your body learns to absorb this additional nutrition and energy you’ll be less hungry, getting more energy from what you do eat, and eat less. This ultimately can reduce your food costs, as well as your health care costs, far below what is was when you were eating empty calories filled with the acidic toxins. I believe Real Live Raw Food and Living Water is the ultimate health care plan!
