A good friend of mine in South Africa forwarded this video to me. Its worth watching. Its a TV news report about a Florida woman that started eating a raw vegetable diet and how at 75 she looks like she's 35. The comparison to her retired meat butcher husband is rather striking!
I am not a vegan, I do eat meat. I eat less of it than I used to. I've never eaten much pork and since the mad cow scare during my work stay in Britain in 1989 I haven't trusted beef. The difference between European beef and American beef is we tend to get our meat from much younger cows - which means if they do have BSE they never get old enough to show it - that doesn't mean its not being passed on to humans via brain and nerve tissues. I tend to chose lamb, fish and poultry over beef - unless I know the beef is organically raised and fed. If I was smart I'd buy a side of beef from my cousin's ranch in Montana. I started transitioning to a diet containing much more raw vegetable diet, salads, fruits and a lot of sprouts in 2010. After my battle with MRSA in 2009 (I got it from some polluted beach water) and recovering from it, I had some cell damage internally (it got into my blood stream) and on my ankles. I've not had a recurrence of MRSA, I've been more fortunate than many. I did some reading about phyto-nutrients and their importance for cell repair and vitality. As adults our need for energy rich foods to fuel growth decreases and we have more a need to maintain our cellular integrity against aging and oxidation. I also read about the need for soluable silica for forming cell walls, and I had a lot of skin damage. I drank gallons of Fiji bottle water for a few months as its naturally high in silica content, coming from a volcanic island.
I am not talking about eating wheat, pasta and potatoes, that's a good way to get fat and end up on insulin. In moderation they are fine, but some of the starches being engineered into modern GMO wheat will, by design, make you obese. The Diabetes industrial complex is a money making venture. Glucose meter test strips are a dollar per strip. And it starts with making you diabetic through high fructose corn syrup, too much standard sugar, and GMO wheat and potatoes. Also high fat diets stress the pancreas, your pancreas secrets both insulin and fat digestive substances. Stress the pancreas and you will have problems. Most people don't realize the pancreas does more than just supply insulin, it works very closely with the liver in the metabolism of fats.
Sunlight is good for the body, when not taken to extremes. Researchers have found that sunlight causes Vitamin D to form which modulates the immune system, which prevents things like the flu. That's why its rare to get the flu in the summer - the germs are still out there - they don't disappear when the seasons change. Our grandparents encouraged us kids to go outside and get fresh air and sunshine, they intuitively knew it was good for us. Today we coat our kids in sunscreen and sunglasses, preventing vitamin D formation and blocking the natural horomones in the brain that result from sunlight striking the retina of the eye.
I have found that my energy goes way up when I stick to a diet high in raw vegetable content. I've also noticed that I don't enjoy eating a heavy meal of meat like I once did, and I can't tolerate liver at all anymore. The change towards more fresh greens and sprouts has caused my skin to heal and seems to be getting younger. Sun damage from my youth in the Arizona desert is going away! Cell regeneration! I have never had skin cancer and I did everything wrong the experts say to avoid concerning the sun, including tanning! Cancer results when the body cannot protect itself from oxidation and DNA damage which is usually caused by a weakened immune system. Sunlight does age skin and I had some discoloration pigment on my skin, but that is changing.
When I set about trying to heal from the MRSA damage, I read about some devices now available for healing skin damage, but they are rather expensive - $400-500. Perhaps because of all the ridiculous FDA certification they had to go through, I don't know. The components are cheap enough, you should be able to buy these things at a drug store for $10. The concept is the red wavelengths heal by stimulating mitochondria activity and the blue ones cleans the body of bacteria and virus DNA (they can't handle the wavelength of blue light). The article conveniently gave the nanometer wavelength range of lights and I got two red LED and one blue LED (close to ultraviolet) light strips from a Chinese source on EBAY, mounted it in an old Bed Bath and Body Works bamboo hair brush from wife and built a light treatment device of my own, cost $40:

Light therapy in operation, it could be the power supply (recycled DC wall outlet power supply) that made it difficult to photograph but you get the general idea, it actually looks bluer than this to the human eye.
|My leg prior to the light therapy, lots of scar tissue from MRSA.|
Some pretty amazing results for just light isn't it? What does that tell you about the nature of the body?
Viruses and bacteria are information patterns, its no accident that computers can have viruses, which are by definition a destructive information pattern, just like biological ones. When we are weakened by stress, emotions, chemicals, lack of sleep - which prevents body restoration, we can fall ill and be victims of disease. David Wilcock gets into this holographic concept of biology in his book The Source Field Investigations. David also shows how DNA can change through coherent photons.
The theory is that one of the reasons raw foods have such a life enhancing effect is that they contain a richer photonic content. Chlorophyll works by combing photons with CO2 to produce sugar and oxygen. Chlorophyll is almost the same molecule as hemoglobin, the difference being it contains a magnesium atom instead of an iron atom. Admitedly this is a thumb nail sketch of the process here, but the idea is that the closer you food is to living, the less refined and process the more life force, chi or qi, the more it enhances the body holographic matrix. This is also true for animal foods, fish, meat and eggs that are the freshest and the least process will be the healthiest for you.
I am particularly fond of pea sprouts and micro greens from Trader Joe's, clover/radish sprouts available at most California grocers, and the great collection of sprouts and organic vegetables available at my local Jimbo's and Sprouts grocery stores. I hate alfalfa sprouts. Others may like them. I also eat mitaki and shitake mushrooms both of which are very medicinal. Shitake is naturally anti-viral, and mitaki helps cellular metabolism. Frankly mitaki mushrooms give me an energy rush and they are delicious. At about $2.95 for a packet at Jimbo's, they are a bargain. And they taste great raw in salads are cooked in omlettes. I also love Sushi! I'll probably never be a complete vegan, we all have different body types. But we can all eat better than we have done in the past.
The only criticism I have of vegetable diets is that a lot of people religions out of them. It makes them feel good so they want to preach, and can even be judgmental. The diets do require discipline, especially in our fast food culture, but keep in mind your emotions and your mental state have far more impact on your body that even what you eat! Consciousness affects matter especially matter that is so closely intertrwined with photonic activity as the human body is. If you get invited to someone's house for dinner and they offer you a shredded pork sandwich, its not going to kill you. Eat it and be a gracious guest! People are more important than diets! To think otherwise is to put something else before the incarnation of the Divine Source Oneness, humanity. Sadly that's exactly what most religions do, put rituals, customs, and written texts before loving humans. Don't make a religion of out eating healthy! Humanity was made in the image of God. Honor that image in others as well as yourself. Don't forget to honor the body you inhabit as your earthly vehicle.
If you eat the most organic pesticide free diet there is, filter your water to a purity level unknown in nature, it will do you no good if you are hateful, spiteful, abusive and venomous to others. As Jesus said when challenged on Jewish purity laws in food and ritual cleansing, "its not what goes into a man's mouth that defiles him, but what come out of it!" Bless your food and bless each other!
