On this page you will find the food protocols that have reversed and prevented many chronic diseases, plus gives people daily more energy , mental cognitive function and controls obesity.
Medical researchers have found that a high-fat, high-sugar diet, combined with environmental pollutants and stress, can lead to a buildup of toxins in the body collectively known as chronic degenerative disease. Today diabetes, heart disease and cancer are the biggest killers and claim more lives per year than all the wars combined. Not so well known is that there are many dangers of foods that have been genetically modified, treated with pesticides, microwaved, and irradiated which are adding to the toll.
A mostly raw food diet accompanied with a whole food diet has a proven track record in preventing these diseases and many health cojnditons, they also have a proven track record of preventing Big Pharma medication.
Whole foods are foods that are unprocessed and unrefined, also they can be processed and refined as little as possible like steaming etc. Examples of whole foods include unpolished grains, beans, fruits, vegetables and non-homogenized dairy products. The Raw food practice is consuming uncooked, unprocessed, and often organic foods as a large percentage of the diet.They include a selection of raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds (including sprouted whole grains such as gaba rice), non-pasteurized/non-homogenized dairy products (such as raw milk, raw milk cheese, and raw milk yogurt), fermented foods, seaweeds and others.
One must realize the list of processed foods (below) which are excluded here which make the biggest impact to health,longevity and in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases.
A 2005 study by Loren Cordain, Ph.D., shows that 57% of the typical American diet comes from three foods: processed grains, hydrogenated vegetable oils and added sugars.Unfortunately, these foods take on a variety of "healthy"
disguises such as juice drinks, frozen yogurt, cereal bars and enriched wheat bread to name a few. What you are really getting is some combination of refined flour, refined sugar and over-processed fat with a long shelf life. The result is pure nutritional cardboard that can cause pain and disease and can definitely shorten your life. Processed foods are broken down, rebuilt, reconstituted whole foods with up to 80% of the vitamins and minerals missing.
Manufacturers of so-called "enriched" products add back only a handful of the hundreds of nutrients they have removed. Why would anyone want to eat a plate full of additives, preservatives, and starchy fillers? Because the $450 billion food industry uses their marketing muscle to tell us that fresh food is pricey and we don't have time to prepare meals from scratch. Their persuasive ad campaigns repeat over and over that packaged, processed foods are a healthy choice that can save us time and money. Nothing could be further from the truth! -Vitamix.
What is not presently taught in the education system is that there is a proven track record of food protocols like the Macrobiotic diet, Budwig Diet and others comprising whole, natural, organic, and raw foods which have reversed chronic disease, restored vitality and given people more energy.Doctors are required to fix broken bones and bring people back to life after heart attacks, however they have not got the answers to successful treating chronic disease with selling drugs or surgery.All these are only attempts to manage symptoms and not address the cause.
On this page you will find a PROVEN track record of healthy eating habits that have treated and prevented a number of chronic diseases.The education of these healthy eating habits and others results is lacking, people do not receive an informed consent from doctors about others proven results. It is you who must self educate and help others too.
The modern synthetic diet is basically engineered to be the cheapest production with the lowest cost ingredients. These processed, artificial and pesticide laden foods are formulated to appeal to our inherent attraction to sugar, salt, fats, and calories for profit but at the expense of nutrition. These leave you feeling full but result in food cravings and addiction, us being over-fed, under-nourished and diseased.We now have the highest disease rate ever in human history, a considerable portion of chronic human diseases, including, Cancer, obesity, diabetes and heart disease are directly related to this modern diet which is inadequate in the essential vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and other constituents found in natural, unprocessed fruits and vegetables.
In the united states non organic meat, corn and other profit industries are given more subsidies then fruit and vegetable farmers. Pharmaceutical industries are parasites making money from many drugs and insulin off these poor nutrient subsidies, education and choices. The modern diet is essentially a slow and toxic death sentence.
There is only one way to employ a no-nonsense solution. Education, subsidies and practice in the nutritional and therapeutic constituents of live organic nuts, seeds , vegetables and fruits.The application of nutritional and therapeutic values in raw vegetables and the anitoxidents in fruits are needed to maintain health and fight disease. These are the only keys to obtaining not just adequate vitamins and minerals, but a wide variety of other elements that can contribute therapeutically to human health.Whilst people may have a vague idea that fruits and vegetables are beneficial to good health, its now more important than ever to know which ones can be effective in treating specific illnesses. For example, which are good for cardiac care? Which can help combat and treat asthma or cancer? What are the safety concerns to be aware of when using herbs in combination with traditional medicines?
Diet and nutrition are vital keys to controlling or promoting morbidity and mortality from chronic diseases, and the multitude of biomolecules in dietary fruits and vegetables play a crucial role in health maintenance. Success stories of whole food and raw organic live food nutrition have shown that these foods have different actions beyond nutrients.To achieve results Dietary habits need to be altered it is that simple and easy.
Eliminate processed foods, GMO foods, MSG, aspartame, high fructose corn syrup, bleached flour products, and processed table sugar. These are all part of the toxic Standard diet.Eliminate well done red meat. If you are a meat eater, switch to meats from humanely treated grass fed livestock, and avoid overcooking. Cooking the Macrobiotic way is proven to be more beneficial. Lots of organic legumes and whole grains could replace much of a meat diet, and organic sprouted grain breads should replace the toxic bleached flour breads offered on store shelves.
Organic veggies and nuts with some fruit are most important. Cruciferous vegetables, such as cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, and others are proven to help prevent cancer. Raw Brazil nuts are extremely high in selenium, which helps prevent and even fight cancer.Strawberries and black berries are also proven antioxidants against cancer.Use only unprocessed sea salt. Get plenty of Omega 3 and consume only healthy fats and oils while avoiding trans-fatty acids
The information on this page is a proven approach which uses supplementation, organics, fruits and plant extracts for health promotion, emotional health and disease treat but also prevention. This information is intended to provide this basis for change.
The mainstream curricular does not teach about the natural medicines present in ORGNAIC live raw foods called phytonurtients or how the enzymes present are essential to optimize health. The mainstream studies on super foods and fruits is only just coming to light, however the ancients knew about these foods and used them regularly for optimal health. Cooking foods above 112 degrees fahrenheit destroys vital enzymes, vitamins and phytonurtients. These enzymes are proteins that catalyze reactions and break down nutrients so the body can use them. Raw fruits and vegetables contain high levels of enzymes so consuming them reduces the need for the body to have to produce its own.
Processing food and cooking continues to destroy many of the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants present in raw foods.Eating WHOLE raw fruits and vegetables improves digestion due to their high fiber content. The phytonutrients present in them fight disease and prevent cell damage. You can expect many benefits of eating raw including: Disease prevention, rapid weight loss , increased physical vitality, greater mental capacity, balanced emotions, DETOX, vibrant and beautiful skin, stronger immune system longevity and youthfulness and what most regard as a spiritual peace of mind.There is a myriad of simple and gourmet combinations to be utilized and improved.
Live foods contain Phytonutrients."Phyto" comes from the Greek word "phuton" meaning "plants" hence the chemical/nutrient found in plants are called phytochemical or phytonutrient. The term "phytonutrient" is increasingly becoming more popular for the positive association with "nutrient" rather than "chemical".These are nutrients derived from plant material that have been shown to be necessary for benefiting human life. Phytochemicals are non-nutritive plant chemicals that contain protective, disease-preventing, compounds. Their role in plants is to protect plants from disease, injuries, insects, drought, excessive heat, ultraviolet rays, and poisons or pollutants in the air or soil.
They form part of the plants immune system. They are responsible for giving the plant color, smell, flavor, texture.Phytochemicals are associated with the prevention and/or treatment of at least four of the leading causes of death in Western countries - cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension. They are involved in many processes including ones that help prevent cell damage, prevent cancer cell replication, and decrease cholesterol levels.However these phytonutrients get destroyed by cooking and processing. So, it is important to eat plant foods raw.
There is a reason for the following quote "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food" ― Hippocrates
The ancient Greek text in much more explicit & Lakonic-language stupilates "Your nutrition is your pharmaco/medicine".
An estimated 25,000 different chemical compounds occur in fruits, vegetables, and other plants eaten by humans. They can encompass such diverse chemical classes as carotenoids, flavonoids, organosulfur compounds,isothiocyanates, indoles, monoterpenes, phenolic acids, and chlorophyll.Cancer-preventive properties of the macronutrient (carbohydrate, protein, fat,and fiber) and micronutrient (vitamin and mineral) components of diets have been the object of study for a number of years, and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has sponsored a number of human intervention trials with individual vitamins and minerals. More recently, however, research efforts have extended to the non-nutritive phytochemicals.
They are trying to catch up.The NCI has determined that more than 35 plantbased foods and 1000 individual phytochemicals possess cancer-preventive activity in cell culture and animal models.Well-studied food sources and representative phytochemicals include garlic (diallyl sulfide), soybeans (genistein), turmeric (curcumin), tomatoes (lycopene), grapes (resveratrol), green tea (epigallocatechin-3-gallate [EGCG]), and cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli,cabbage, and Brussels sprouts; indole-3-carbinol, sulforaphane). However,the repertoire of chemopreventive phytochemicals is vast, and foods, dietary supplements, and traditional herbal medicines with previously undocumented anticancer activities are continually being identified.
All these are disease prevention and cancer-fighting, rejuvenating elements in fruits and vegetables. Bioflavonoids for example is sometimes referred to as "vitamin P," are super-antioxidants found in many natural foods. Scientists have found that bioflavonoids have specific capabilities to increase bodily health in many different ways. They support strong cell formations and, according to some medical services, even suppress poor cellular growth in order to deliver an anti-carcinogenic effect. Bioflavonoids contribute to good heart health, and combat atherosclerosis, as well as conditions like Alzheimer's disease.
All these are contained in fruits and vegetables are truly the medicine part of the food, with out them consumed "live" or "raw" in salads or juicing we have no disease preventative "fuel" for our immune system. Here is one example of how cooking them gets rid of their medical content.
Miracle Cure for Gout and Arthritis Pain- Six Cherries a Day. Researchers from the Michigan State University found that anthocyanins, the same chemicals that give cherries their color, have powerful anti-inflammatory affects. A study as far back as 1999, showed that these anthocyanins inhibit COX-2 enzymes, which play a key role in the body's production of prostaglandins ― natural chemicals involved in inflammation. Unfortunately, cooking cherries is known to kill many of the beneficial compounds found inside them. So, eating cherry pie probably will have very little benefit. You may either eat cherries raw, or purchase concentrated cherry supplements if you need high potency, or convenience. More Referances to cherries effectively treating Gout and Arthritis Pain.
There are a plethora of subjects that can be examined with a conclusion of raw foods being superior to cooked or denatured foods. Cooking makes fats and proteins unrecognizable, it makes minerals much more difficult to take in, and it demands the body to use its own energy stores just to assimilate the food. Combining this with raw foods ability to turn on good genes and turn off bad genes makes cooked food seem pretty “unnatural” and uninteresting. In order to optimize human health, a lower percentage of cooked foods and a much higher percentage of LIVING raw foods is required to be eaten. The education system must reflect this. A perfect short overview of these themes can be found in the following Raw for life DVD preview.
Raw for life gave a brilliant oveview with the wisdom of eating a raw food diet, important medical facts and nutritional information. This information is perfect for Vegetarians, Vegans, and Raw Food Vegans looking for new recipes and resources; someone coping with diabetes, heart disease, or excess weight, those seeking to reverse their aging process; athletes looking to improve their performance; actors, dancers, and other performers looking for a healthy way to maintain their weight and image; anyone looking to live longer, be stronger, perform at their best, and get their nutrition on the right track.
This health nutritional science is not taught in any schools. It is therefore no wonder that people grow up with out the life skills or education needed to make informed decisions and maintain their health through nutritional habits. Most do not realize how they are Toxic. Agribusiness, pharmacutical,artificial preservatives, coloring,chemical fertilizers, pesticides, processed,irradiated and genetically modified food are big business and all have a conflict of interest to this HEALTH information.
From an educational perspective it is a disservice to humanity to not teach this essential nutritional healing process. Preventative measures for bad health must start at the source to be truly objective. We are increasingly being exposed to modern chemicals which have previously never existed in nature. These have now become environmental carcinogens. These synthetic chemicals are now being found in our bodies. For example a study released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in 2001 confirmed that humans have certain phthalates in our bodies.
Some regulatory bodes attempt to regulate toxicity levels. However this level of toxicity is measured outside the human body, and does not take into account the fact that many toxins fail to be eliminated by the body, and are stored in fat cells (the body’s way in which it attempts to protect vital organs from toxic substance), which greatly compounds the levels of bodily toxicity over time. These toxins are now of course at much higher levels than what is approved as ‘safe’ and do not just naturally ‘fade away’ somehow. Today, traces of the chemical DDT, a highly toxic synthesized insecticide that was banned from use back in 1972, are still being found in the fat tissue of animals carrying the genetic material of a past generation of creatures exposed. It is the same for humans: stored toxins greatly compromise our overall blood chemistry at a cellular level. This toxicity is passed on from generation to generation (it is the fetus that is affected the most by the toxicity of the mother’s blood), which means that today we now are all suffering from generations worth of compromised and toxic blood.
For how many more generations do you think our bodies will be able to withstand becoming increasingly toxic before they begin to break down, which indeed is already a problem manifesting in the form of rapidly growing rates of lifestyle diseases such as obesity, diabetes, stroke and cancer. When you think about it, do we not have a duty of care to future generations to try and reduce the toxic load on our own bodies, and that which will be passed on genetically to our offspring?
People in western society are rarely healthy. Real health - the perfect functioning of all parts of body and mind - is so rare that people mistake the temporary absence of disease symptoms for health. Formerly, people suffered mainly from violent, but short infectious diseases; now they are afflicted with chronic degenerative diseases for a lifetime. There are many NEW contributing factors causing widespread health degeneration.
·Unnatural nutrition: food refining, lack of 'living food' rich in vitamins, minerals and enzymes; incorrect food combining; unsuitable diet for our metabolic type.
·Chemicalization: pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, medical drugs, food additives and synthetic garments
.Electromagnetic pollution and radiation. Now known as "Dirty electrcity".
·Lack of sufficient physical activity or exercise in natural, unpolluted surroundings
·Harmful negative feelings and emotions - and lack of positive feelings and emotions. Harmful mental attitudes, lack of spiritual or humanistic goals
·Emotional damage during birth, childhood and adolescence, lack of positive role models
· Inherited genes of poor and deteriorating quality
"Health" must not be defined as the appearance of physiological health, but also mental, emotional, and spiritual health. The toxins present in todays breast milk are a sobering reality and prove that our bodies are being altered.Our environment is riddled with organochlorine pesticides (which make their way into our bodies) and dioxins. Bio dynamic, Permaculture farming, Urban Organic farming like aquaponics and Industrial Hemp products can replace plastics and is an effective eradication of those toxic industries. In the mean time de-toxing with ORGANIC live raw foods is essential.
Superiour Raw food nutrition
Malnutrition and toxicity is the basis of nearly all disease: "The human body is a living organism, made of living cells, which require living food in order to be properly nourished and function well. When we put processed, additive (MSG and aspartame for example) or cooked food into our body, loaded with contaminants, the body starts to break down.
Today's processed,geneticaly modified,cooked and irradiated foods cannot supply the same nutritional capacity or protection from these toxins in comparison to organic live raw foods or "super foods".When free radicals run rampant in our body, through the air we breathe, the food we eat, or merely from stress, they cause deterioration and destruction of our healthy cells. This process ultimately result in degenerative diseases in the weakest parts of our body that succumb to the attack. When we eat RAW LIVE ORGANIC whole food that has phytonutrients, it will quickly activate a group of enzymes that go around cleaning up the free radicals before they cause any harm to the body. In very much the same way, it works like the anti-oxidant. In fact, many phytonutrients are anti-oxidant.
With out including these food choices to what you already eat your body will not be able to access the same caliber of sustenance (Vitmins, nutrients and antioxidants) and prevent health conditions.You may not choose to completely change over, but the logic of organically farmed meat, REDUCEING your meat intake WITH a choice of these raw food groups cannot be disputed.Its not just about the de-toxing, it is security with maintaining a healthy weight and preventing a whole manner of other diseases including cancer.
How many are taught at school that a great way to detoxify the liver is by drinking beetroot juice?. Although we recommend removing all the mucoid plaque from the bowels first by doing a colon cleansing . This point is often ignored by many people, as liver cleansing has been hyped up a lot in the media recently, without the adequate explanations as to why a liver would need to be cleaned. Firstly, the liver filters the blood, but the bowel feeds the blood. Hence a dirty bowel means dirty blood, which leads to a dirty liver. Cleaning the liver is pointless if the bowel is still coated in mucoid plaque.
The relationship between unhealthy eating and the development of disease is undeniable. It may not be well known but there is no other weight loss program out there which can beat raw food nutrition or raw food juicing.
Loosing weight using the raw food method also gives the person more energy, enhanced mental focus and protects against debilitating diseases.
The educational documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead tells the story of Joe Cross who was 100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross was at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long-term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body's ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Others with the same debilitating autoimmune disease were cured using simple juicing recipes.
Most of "Big Pharma's" drugs would be wiped out if the following nutritionaleducation was implimented. The followng are examples of documentaries made by independent film makers showing how raw food not only has reversed disease but prevents it.
The list goes on and is profiled below.Juicing is a powerful tool that can accelerate your progress towards optimal health, and Cherie Calbom, aka "The Juice Lady," is an expert on this subject. Virtually every health authority, even conventional doctors, recommend 6-8 servings of vegetables and fruits per day but very few of us actually get that. Juicing to be a simple and easy way to virtually guarantee that you'll reach your daily target for vegetables. Juicing also allows you to add a wider variety of vegetables to your diet that you might not normally enjoy eating whole, and makes it easier for your body to absorb all those wonderful nutrients. Cherie Calbom earned her nickname "The Juice Lady" back in 1991, when she worked for the Juiceman company. But her passion about juicing began way before that, as she healed herself from a multitude of disabling health problems through juicing in her late 20's. -Source
The food industry is now wide spread and will use cheap and synthetic additives over natural ways. Health legislation is not there to support SECURE health education or has enough regulation. One only needs to read the book by Kelly Brownell, Katherine Battle Horgen, entitled "Food Fight: The Inside Story of The Food Industry, America's Obesity Crisis, and What We Can Do About It" to understand why.
The war against obesity must go beyond personal responsibility and will power to encompass a Gandhian mass movement against a food industry and a social order intent on fattening us, argues this fact-filled but ferocious manifesto. The authors, academics with the Yale Center for Eating and Weight Disorders, contend that our abundant, super-sized meals and our modern, sedentary lifestyles have formed a toxic environment that indulges our genetic fat-storage proclivities to a pathological degree. The result is an epidemic of obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and low self-esteem. Brownell and Horgen blame these side effects on a car-centric culture that has virtually criminalized walking (27% of adult Americans, they report, get no physical activity at all) while parking kids in front of television, video games and computers and eliminating gym classes from cash-strapped schools.
But the worst villain of the book is the politically powerful food industry, which, the authors say, plies us with cheap fat and sugar while keeping healthier foods scarce and expensive, bribes schools to sell children soft drinks, and bombards children with junk-food ads from the moment they leave the womb. The authors recast the usual diet-and-exercise discourse in the rhetoric of social justice, calling for a grass-roots mobilization to fight Big Food, a national strategic plan, and specific measures like junk-food taxes and banning ads that target children. Libertarians may consider this the worst kind of victimology. But the evergreen subject of American gluttony and sloth brings out the best in scientist-advocates, and the authors, while drawing on a mountain of statistics and studies, make their indictment both funny and appalling.Food Fight: The Inside Story of The Food Industry, America's Obesity Crisis, and What We Can Do About It"
Mike Adams AKA the Health Ranger from Natural news dot com sums the situation up perfectly.All western countries fall under the following conditions.
There is a reason why industries are not telling you. The five-part video series by Peter Jennings explores how the food industry spends billions of dollars to sabotage your health. Jennings also takes a critical look at US government's agricultural subsidy programs, and their unintended consequences on your nutritional choices and health. For example, sugar and fat receive 20 times more US government farming subsidies than fruits and vegetables. Does this oversupply of fats and sugars, compared to fruits and vegetables, affect your food choices?Some statistics, implicating both the food industry and the government as co-creating factors in the obesity epidemic, include:
In 2002, consumers spent $174 billion on processed foods.90 percent of foods marketed each year are processed foods. Last year, 2,800 new candies, desserts, ice-cream, and snacks were introduced to the marketplace, compared to 230 new fruits or vegetable products.The food industry spends $34 billion per year marketing their products.$12 billion is spent marketing to children.
The food industry is quick to point out that the choice is always yours -- they're not making you buy something you don't want.The body has the inherent ability not only to heal itself and restore health, but also to ward off disease THROUGH RAW/ WHOLE FOOD NUTRITION.
Further details can be found in the Book -America's Food: What You Don't Know About What You Eat by Harvey Blatt
We don't think much about how food gets to our tables, or what had to happen to fill our supermarket's produce section with perfectly round red tomatoes and its meat counter with slabs of beautifully marbled steak. We don't realize that the meat in one fast-food hamburger may come from many different cattle raised in several different countries. In fact, most of us have a fairly abstract understanding of what happens on a farm. In America's Food, Harvey Blatt gives us the specifics. He tells us, for example, that a third of the fruits and vegetables grown are discarded for purely aesthetic reasons; that the artificial fertilizers used to enrich our depleted soil contain poisonous heavy metals; that chickens who stand all day on wire in cages choose feed with pain-killing drugs over feed without them; and that the average American eats his or her body weight in food additives each year. Blatt also asks us to think about the consequences of eating food so far removed from agriculture; why unhealthy food is cheap; why there is an International Federation of Competitive Eating; what we don't want to know about how animals raised for meat live, die, and are butchered; whether people are even designed to be carnivorous; and why there is hunger when food production has increased so dramatically.
America's Food describes the production of all types of food in the United States and the environmental and health problems associated with each. After taking us on a tour of the American food system?not only the basic food groups but soil, grain farming, organic food, genetically modified food, food processing, and diet?Blatt reminds us that we aren't powerless. Once we know the facts about food in America, we can change things by the choices we make as consumers, as voters, and as ethical human beings.-America's Food: What You Don't Know About What You Eat
The following excert is taken from the book Goldat, by Lewis E. Cook, Jr. & Junkp Yasui
“It has been found that a group of rats were fed diet of raw vegetables, fruits, nuts and whole grains from birth grew into completely healthy specimens and never suffered from any disease. They were never ill. They grew rapidly, but never became fat, mated with enthusiasm and had healthy offspring. They were always gently affectionate and playful and lived in perfect harmony with each other. Upon reaching an old age, equivalent to 80 years in humans, these rats were put to death and autopsied. At that advanced age their organs, glands, tissues all body processes appeared to be in perfect condition without any sign of aging or deterioration.
“A companion group of rats we fed a diet comparable to that of the average American and included white bread, cooked foods, meats, milk, salt, soft drinks, candies, cakes, vitamins and other supplements, medicines for their ails, etc. During their lifetime these rats became fat and, from the earliest age, contracted most of the diseases of modern American society including colds, fever, pneumonia, poor vision, cataracts, heart disease, arthritis, cancer and many more.“Most of this group died prematurely at early ages but during their lifetime most of them were vicious, snarling beasts, fighting with one another stealing one another’s food and attempting to kill each other. They had to be kept apart to prevent total destruction of the entire group.
Their offspring were all sick and exhibited the same general characteristics as there parents.“As this group of rats died one by one or in epidemics or various diseases, autopsies were performed revealing extensive degenerative conditions in every part of their bodies. All organs, glands and tissues were affected, as were the skin, hair, blood and nervous system. They were all truly total physical and nervous wrecks. The same condition existed in the few, which survived full duration of the experiment.
“A third companion group of rats was fed the same diet as the second group to an age equivalent to about 40 years in humans. They displayed the same general symptoms of the second group – being sick and vicious so that they had to be separated to prevent them from killing each other and stealing one another food.“At the end of this initial period all rats in this group were placed on a strict fast, with of water to drink for a period of several days. Then they received the natural (raw) diet o first group of rats.
This diet was alternated with periods of fast and within one mouth behavioral pattern had changed completely so that the now docile, affectionate, playful creatures were once again able to live together in a harmonious society and from this point on never suffered any illness.“Several rates put to death and autopsied at the end of the initial period revealing the same general deterioration as that exhibited in the second group of rats. However, the remaining rats lived out the full duration of the experiment, to the equivalent of 80 years in humans, and when they were topside there were no signs of aging or deterioration or disease - just as those in the first group.
The obvious disease, degeneration and deterioration of body parts evident in their first half of life had been completely reversed and excellent health restored. “The same principles apply to human life as there is only one TRUTH! Thus it may be concluded that sick people may be restored to health simply by choosing the proper diet, fasting observing the other rules of health. There is no mystery. There is no external force that will help – all healing being accomplished within the body in accordance with the laws of organic life and health.” -Reference
We must mention another educator Elaine Hollingworth who through her own personal sacrifice, anger and disgust wrote "Take Control of your Health" which has now sold over 500,000 copies, and inspired people all over the world to join the crusade against the multi-national pharmaceutical giants. Elaine is a personal hero too Panacea, she was the first to produce a documentary which open source a cancer treatment.
We are not powerless to change the system. We must also act on what is presently in our bodies. Detoxing by using the natural medicine of raw food education is already well in effect in the Cedar Springs Renewal Center’s mind/body/spirit approachAnd many others. However this natural medicine method is not known well enough or utilized in the mainstream or even recommended by doctors.
Independent of Big Pharma- Studies have been conducted and show amazing results when eating whole raw food. So far these range from cancer treatments toreversing diabetes in 30 Days.We are only just scratching the surface.

People have Credited Dr. Ann's Raw Living Foods Lifestyle with their recovery from:
Cancer of the Larynx
Heavy Metal Poisoning
Metastatic Malignant Melanoma
This was simply by changing their eating habits and including raw and whole food. It suprises most that Alissa is in her 40's instead of 20's, but not some as it is well known that raw food protects and is true "anti aging". The Alkaline effect promotes rejuvenation of each bodily system at a cellular level. Absorbing the high levels of certain vitamins, trace minerals and antioxidants found in raw food, plus the enzymes in sprouted nuts, seeds grains and grasses is truly ANTI AGING.
Here is ONE OF THE MANY reports of raw foods curing cancer
At Present only independent documentary film makers are documenting these cases.They are the only security giving the public informed consent. With out them you would not be able to discover:
Reversing the Irreversible -Valya Boutenko's "Reersing the Irreversable" reveals the true story of how 37 people reversed so-called "incurable" disease by unleashing their innate healing powers. Flying in the face of conventional medical wisdom -- which really isn't wise at all -- this film celebrates the simple yet powerful truths about reversing chronic disease that the established medical system won't dare talk about.
This was , yes you guessed it, RAW FOOD.In this film, 37 participants share their remarkable stories about suffering from "incurable" chronic diseases like fibromyalgia, psoriasis, diabetes, colitis, edema and many more. Each one of these participants reversed chronic disease using simple methods of living foods nutrition that anyone can make part of their daily living.Referance.
An important fact, the people featured in these documentaries were able to rid themselves of their medication.They mentioned it to thier doctors, their doctors were not interested. A simple nutrient included into juicing an apple and lemon has been shown to work wonders for alternative cancer treatments. Vitamin B-17 is also known as "Amygdalin", or "Laetrile", and is a natural substance found in a variety of species in the vegetable kingdom. The greatest concentration is found in the seeds of the rosaceous fruits, such as apricot kernels and other bitter nuts. The effective compound was identified By Dr. Ernst T. Krebs, Sr. and his son (Dr. E.T. Krebs, Jr.) as being Nitrilosides which are prevalent in the seeds of apricots,peaches, apples, millet, bean sprouts, buckwheat, and other fruits and nuts, including bitter almonds. This was used By Cancer survivor Benadette Bohan (Above) and can also work for PREVENTION.Simply Juice 1/4 of a lemon, 2 apples and add 5 organic apricot seeds, juice all of them, its that simple.
The cure capacity of organic nutrition and juicing can also be found in the Gerson Institute a non-profit organization located in San Diego, California, dedicated to providing education and training in the alternative, non-toxic treatment of cancer and other disease, using the Gerson Therapy.The Gerson Therapy is a safe, natural treatment developed by Dr. Max Gerson in the 1920’s that uses organic foods, juicing, coffee enemas, detoxification and natural supplements to activate the body’s ability to heal itself. Over the past 60 years, thousands of people have used the Gerson Therapy to recover from so-called “incurable” and chronic diseases such as:
Dr. Gerson attracted the friendship of Nobel prize winner Albert Schweitzer, M.D., by curing Schweitzer’s wife of lung tuberculosis after all conventional treatments had failed. Gerson and Schweitzer remained friends for life, and maintained regular correspondence. Dr. Schweitzer followed Gerson’s progress as the dietary therapy was successfully applied to heart disease, kidney failure, and finally – cancer. Schweitzer’s own Type II diabetes was cured by treatment with Gerson’s RAW ORGANIC FOOD therapy.
Jay Kordich is one of the best testimonials for RAW foods medicinal results and to prove the Gerson therapy. Called "The Juice man" he is responsible for selling close to one billion in sales of juicers across the world and for a good reason. At the age of 25, Jay was diagnosed with a serious illness and was told he may not have long to live. After reviewing all the treatments available, he left California and traveled to New York City to see Dr. Max Gerson who was treating terminally ill patients with fresh raw juices and healthy cleansing diets. Jay became his patient and immediately began a regimen of large doses of raw carrot/apple juice. It wasn't long before Jay's health was restored and the direction of his life was changed forever.
The 2011 documentary "cancer is curable now" features some of these natural therapies. Panacea has authored our own page on alternative cancer treatments.
Further proof of the medicial capacity of raw foods can be found in Don Tolman's Farmacist Desk Reference (FDR) on wholefoods. You do not need big pharma drugs to cure.This system has already prevented and cured diseases such as cancer, heart disease and others. Here is a partial list which can be verified through his RAWFOOD whole food system.
We have lost the war on cancer due to our heavy reliance on toxic, pharmaceutical drugs and a Health system driven by money. And in doing so, weve forgotten how to trust the wisdom and power of whole foods and principles of health for avoiding disease, remaining vital and living long.Our formal education framework has become nothing more than a 'Factory designed to churn out and indoctrinate academics and workers. My passion and purpose is to drive forward, two timely revolutions in Self-Care and Self-Education and I am committed to building an extended family of people who are interested in pursuing greater levels of self-reliance and magnifying their powers of imagination and learning in a state of pleasure and fun.-Don Tolman
Whole food medicine such as that popularized by Don Tolman can be considered the only nutritional education needed to day-Why today?
Disease can only end with education.-There are now officially over 10,000 human diseases, 95 years ago there were 7. it is estimated that up to 98% of these can be prevented and even healed by embracing basic principles of health? There are many testimonials from Don's Whole food organic nutrition to prove it has superior capacity over prescribed pharma pills.These include Jennifer Ritchie and how she healed her body using the wisdom of Don Tolman and wholefoods
It is not just about eating green-leafed vegetables, whole grains, fruits, Sea Vegetables, Mushrooms, avocados, nuts, seeds, coconuts, bananas, durians, super foods and dried olives. It is about the WAY they are eaten and how they are farmed. It is also about the right food combination for effective digestion and absorption(explained in more detail below).
The western diet not only cooks out the nutrients but also has a bad combination of food groups. The way a portion of cooked foods is perpared is also important.For example:“Steaming broccoli for two to four minutes is the perfect way to protect both the enzyme and the vegetable’s nutrients.” The compound sulforaphane has already been shown to block genetic glitches that trigger prostate and breast cancer.-University of Illinois
cooked Carrot (left). This shows a difference in life force.
Ayurvedic cooking and chinese medicine cooking are healing principles that have been proven to work for centuries. These methods however are in a different class to western food choices and cooking. It is for this reason that raw food nutrition must come into play. Raw food nutrition on its own can rival Ayurvedic and chinese cooking.
Ayurvedic and Chinese cooking have been healing long before the western processed,genetically modified and non organic farmed diet begun.Mike Adams from Natural news can tell you about this meat.Mike used to be diseased ,overweight,diabetic and suffered depression. Being from the midwest in the states he like others due to the education system grew up on a very bad diet. It was the raw food nutrition,live foods,super foods and juicing every day that turned his life around. This change significantly enhanced his mental cognitive function, he reports like others the ability to learn easier (in his case 2 other languages) .Mike reports that living foods open your mind.The meat from animals farmed with growth hormones and others will translate to the end user,even in the animal feed. With NO nutrition the body will NOT function to its fullest, and when imbalance, the body will be affected negatively in certain ways. Processed meats are too dangerous for human consumption because they contain chemical additives that are known to greatly increase the risk of various cancers, including colorectal cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, leukemia, brain tumors, pancreatic cancer and many more.
The toxic meat diet cannot compare to the nutrition of plant based proteins. Some people are only 70-80% raw, being 100% is not the most important thing, What matters is that you get some raw with every meal,as this is the only way for your body too absorb the nutritional content and detox. A warm soup,like quinoa and ginger may be suitable for those in a cold climate, accompanying this with some raw foods can also be done.
The key is to balance with some content of the raw foods. Some foods like tomato and broccoli can be steamed to unlock their nutrients However never cook fruit,nuts or seeds these need to be eaten raw to get the complete benefit. Also raw vegetables need to accompany the cooked ones or be in parallel with them for essential benefit.
The total diet must be understood. Body type and climate also applies to these factors. The bottom line is whether you live in a warm or cold climate,you can still include a portion of the raw food nutritional diet into what you already eat. The concept is to listen to your body in a feedback loop after taking the raw food nutrition and adjust the diet accordingly. One set rule or parameters will vary from person to person. Each person will be at different levels and have a different state of digestion and conditions etc.But what remains the same is the connection to the body.
The pharmaceutical drugs will disconnect one from the messages that body is trying to communicate, for example a pain killer. A fundamental understanding of listening to the body and using the natural medical raw food method as opposed to the pharmaceutical"numbing" treatment is required. The bottom line is EVERY person who has gotten onto the raw food diet has TRANSFORMED.The word "diet" should not be used to describe raw organic live food choices. The word "diet" to some may imply "extra effort" or "sacrifice". This is not the case.
The education of WHY one must at least include these food choices into their existing eating habits is essential for better health. There is no other way to reverse our disease problems or prrevent them. Youor kids wil not have any other duty of care unless YOU DO IT.
For those who are unable to progressively change over to a complete raw food lifestyle, the knowledge of why we must not go without certain classes of ORGANIC RAW LIVE foods for too long of a period must be understood to prevent disease. We cannot get the same caliber of nutrition from any other food groups.
To reach the widest audience, Panacea is going to detail original ideas of mixing raw food choices with what non raw food people currently eat. Even a unique 10% meat concept with RAW food nutrition. The reason must be stated again, you can add raw food to your existing food choices and must do so in order to get the same caliber of substance and fight disease.
The logic for a raw, vegan, live vegetarian and fruitarian nutrition is not new. This type of rational has been around for 1000's of years. Hypocrisies and pythagoras espoused it, so did lot of the GREEK philosophers, even the assyrians thousands of years ago. Dr. N.W. Walker D.Sc is one of the modern pioneers in the quest for higher education on raw food nutrition. DR Walker first produced the book "Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices way back in the 70's. In this book he explained how the lack or deficiency of certain elements, such as vital organic minerals and salts, and consequently of vitamins, from our customary diet is the primary cause of nearly every sickness and disease. Following his recommendations to consume fresh vegetable and fruit juices, we can furnish our bodies with the phytonutrients and enzymes needed for optimal health. Others include Dr. Gabriel Cousens and Brian Clement who have been eating and educating about this way for over 20 years. There are many more pioneering raw food educators which will be covered later.
There have been many who have put this to the test including.
Breakthrough” is an independent documentary film about the life of a raw-vegan family. Brought to you by The Garden Diet and produced by Storm Talifero the film brings you into the life of the Talifero family who eat diet of 100% raw organic vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts and sprouts. With four children ranging from 1 to 11 years old the film gives a view into a nature-oriented, active, healthy and creative family life. The Taliferos do “home-birth”, “home-school”, and “home-business” while making the raw food diet work in a warm family setting. Storm has been a raw-vegan for 30 years. At 57 years of age he appears decades younger with an athletic body-builder’s physique and the lifestyle of an extreme adventurer. Jinjee has been a raw vegan on and off for 12 years and at 38 years old she continues to rejuvenate and increase her fitness level. Jinjee home-birthed her four children and the film shows her at pre-pregnancy weight and tone only 10 days after giving birth to her fourth child.
Jinjee compares her two cooked-vegan pregnancies and two raw-vegan pregnancies crediting her two painless births to her raw-vegan diet at the time. The family is shown climbing mountains, doing animations, playing music, preparing food, eating, gardening, and visiting the doctor for a check-up. Charts compare nutrients in raw food and cooked food. Storm’s 300 lb. nephew is filmed over a three month period losing 75 lbs. on the raw vegan diet. Jinjee and Storm talk about the deaths of their parents and Storm’s many family members who have died of debilitating diet-related diseases. They discuss how these losses guided them to their present dietary choices. In an exhilarating sequence of scenes Storm’s eldest son Snow who was born raw-vegan and spent much of his life as a raw-vegan is shown climbing 7-story high Gibraltar Rock in Santa Barbara with no ropes. Scenes like this distinguish “Breakthrough” from instructional raw food videos and bring the actual effects of a raw food lifestyle into focus with a “proof is in the raw-pudding” attitude.
You can also ask supermodel and actress Carol Alt who shared her secret with the world—that she’s become the healthiest, slimmest, and most energetic she’s ever been by converting to a raw food lifestyle. Or model Lillian Müller.
Another case file must be mentioned. The Benefits Of Raw Food By Paul Nison. Paul Nison is a raw food chef and educator. He is also the author of seven books including "The Raw Life."At age 20, Paul Nison was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease (also know as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), a deadly affliction.His search for a cure began with medical doctors, but they didn’t have the answers he needed. After trying almost every so-called cure to overcome his pain and suffering, Paul finally discovered the benefits of eating more simply. He started by getting rid of foods that were no good for him.Simplifying his diet was the first step in his cure.Paul started to leave out all unhealthful foods, and the healthful foods he was left with were raw, ripe, fresh, organic fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. After turning to a more simple diet called “the raw food diet” consisting of just that, raw foods, Paul was amazed at how quickly his health returned.
He was even more amazed because doctors told him raw foods would not help his condition. In fact, they warned him by saying a diet of raw fruits and vegetables would be harmful to anyone with inflammatory bowel disease. This led Paul to simplify all areas of his life.With his new understanding of “less is more,” Paul left his office job in the financial industry on Wall Street in New York City, wrote some books about health, and started traveling, giving lectures about health and living simply.
Tragically, many are victims of a “health care” system and way of life which is devastating to our overall well being. To the bottom line on our health we’re caught in a perpetual grinding machine, unable to escape. It’s nearly impossible to be liberated when there’s so much confusing, conflicting information and when the authorities giving you advice – be they the government or industry controlled organizations like the American Dietetic Association – don’t necessarily have your best interest at heart.
Modern Schools have never taught why raw plant material when ingested NEEDS too - And will alkalize the body. Or how cooked vegetarian or vegitables can strip the dish of its peak nutritional content and can become a degenerative diet. Over cooked food can become acidifying to the body, when ingesting a raw food diet or plant material, the body can become alkaline and work optimally. Tissue will regenerate, you will tend to feel better and have more energy.There are is more health benefits which will be discussed later.
Most do not realize the importance of a pH balance in the body, or are they aware that their pH balance may be "out of whack". Acclaimed physician Susan Lark has shed light on this vastly under-discussed health factor. This acid alkaline balance logic is essential for better health to prevent cardiovascular disease. Obesity and other chronic diseases acidic wastes from processed food and chemical additives have detrimental effects on the human body. When acidic wastes accumulate, they can cause organs to malfunction, causing degenerative disease. The west currently has an epidemic of obesity. You can only cure this problem with this nutritional education. Food PH Chart - Most Alkaline and Acidic Foods
Why do we have these problems?
There is no corporation charter in place to ensure that businesses, schools and supermarkets include a safer nuritional food criteria. The common perception is not always accurate. For example - The issue of using Canola which has more detriments than it does benefits.The processing of canola oil and oxidation of the polyunsaturated component of canola oil makes it unhealthy for human consumption. The genral perception on coconut oil is no better.The Truth About Coconut Oil is that the "saturated" fat studies were based on hydrogenated coconut oil which has no relevance to the non-hydrogenated coconut milk or extra virgin coconut oil you can eat for health benefits.
There are many harmnful additives in food.There is even Nanotechnologies in some Food. Most will not be aware how the chemicals in food control your thoughts and feelings. All these food chemicals have effects on certain neurotransmitters concerned with behavior, everything we put into our bodies has very direct consequences for how we think, feel, and act. Processed foods in general can contribute to allergies for a number of different reasons. Most processed foods contain a variety of food colorings, flavors, preservatives, and other additives can have a major impact. But there's another, even more insidious hazard lurking in American food stores.12 Food Additives to Avoid
Five years ago Robyn O’Brien was an average American mom; busy with four kids, living on a limited budget, and not in the least interested in hearing anyone lecture her about what to feed her kids. Then one day, after being served a typical breakfast consisting of Eggo waffles, blue-colored yoghurt and scrambled eggs, her youngest child suddenly had an acute allergic reaction. That very day, Robyn threw herself into researching food allergies, and virtually overnight, Robyn became a real-food activist.She quickly learned that the foods sold in our grocery stores are not necessarily safe. On the contrary, many, if not most of them, now contain "foreign" ingredients that have never been tested for safety.Not having a safer criteria in the education system and a corporation charter for to police this higher standard of health practice prevents the Raw /whole food benefits from being mainstream. Why do toxic foods exist?
We are living in an increasingly polluted world, our food is genetically engineered, laden with pesticides,herbicides, all sorts of poisons and toxins.Juicing and eating an ORGANIC raw plant diet is probably the ONLY EFFECTIVE WAY to help clean out or "detox" the body. Any thing food choice goes in the mean time.
This is the reason why the consensus on food is to eat a lot of refined sugars and sweet things which can lead to Candida (fungus infection) and MANY other health problems.
Juice for the Cure Flyer
This is the current programmed thinking which continues to go on with out anyone sentient to what it is they are actually doing. In general sugar consumption and acidity of the body are two of the main contributors to disease and de-generation. Poor food nutriton also effects brain function.
This raw food detox concept is not just "any thing raw". There are a number of food combinations that are not healthy for the body. It is important to understand that you need to combine foods properly,a food combining chart is essential in order to get the full benefits.A typical bad one is the combination of proteins and sweet fruits. Nuts and fruit are very common.
A few simple ingrediants can make a superiour raw food smoothie.
After the food groups are understood, then there is only one way to effectively apply them.
The importance of eating organicaly farmed produce
It is not only important for the environment. Organic food includes vegetables, fruits, grains, and any agricultural crop or food that has been grown using organic methods, which are based on building healthy soil naturally without the use of synthetic chemical fertilizers and pesticides. In addition, no genetically modified organisms (GMOs), no sewage sludge, and no irradiation are used in organic agriculture.Organic farming techniques are not reliant on fossil fuel-based agrichemicals.Most will not be aware of how incredibly toxic and manipulated our food supply is, especially the meat and the vegetables. Chances are that the produce you buy has been irradiated ,with pesticides, herbicides some times even fungicides,it is certainly not in the same food that previous generations had years ago.
In addition to all the food additives, the majority of food is grown in soils that have been chemically farmed for the last 75 years. This system continues to deplete the soil of nutrients. For the next generation to have a sustainable farming practice this must change. It is for this very reason that Panacea is conducting a FREE Permaculture, Urban and Bio-Dynamic farming educational project. Panacea continues to work with our sponsored farms like Raw and city country farms who both have biodynamic organic farmed SOILS.
Plants typically take out 74 too 100 nutrients from the soil, conventional farming often puts only 3 things back in, potassium, nitrogen and phosphorus. Over time plants pull out all the nutrients of the soil and if we don't replenish it ask yourselves how that translates to your health.
Farmers may try and replace some trace minerals, but basically when you look at conventional farming they have all sorts of PH imbalances and other problems from putting all these chemicals in.Compare this with Permaculture and Biodynamic farming.Permacultre proves you need soil that's alive with bacteria and organisms to break it down into creating nutrients that plants need to absorb. This is mandatory for the soil to be truly healthy and sustainable. It should be no surprise that this then translates to your food and to your childrens health.
The science behind organic produce has shown higher levels in nutritional content in comparison to pesticide grown food. It is not rocket science to figure out why this is the case, the less you toy with nature the less you toy with yourself, we are the same. People who are intent on profiting by the alternative or synthetic means are doing a diservice to our health.It is as simple as that. There is not the same money in agribusiness compared to organic live foods for better health.
Based on the proven Orgone energy work of Wilhelm Reich. Here you
can see a higher vitality reading of the organic apple
over the pesticide grown apple.
Studies of the life force energy coined by Wilhelm Reich as "Orgone energy" are advanced areas of understanding, much like ORMUS and the Rudolf Steiner school of thought. All these relate to the life force and healthy plants. Results from a £12m study showed that organic fruit and vegetables contained up to 40% more antioxidants than non-organic varieties. Carlo Leifert at Newcastle University who leads the EU-funded Quality Low Input Food project. - ReferenceMore studies can be found at the The Organic Center :Science Reviews
Panacea must state: Without a larger-scale, POLICED longitudinal research project on this issue -it is not possible to come to the clearest conclusion on the " organic verse" issue. More nutritional benefits could contained in there for the taking. There must be evidence based, non aligned and independent non profit investigation involved - With out this where is the security?The benefits to eating organic relate to ETHICAL animal welfare and essential environmental benefits.
Any "study" trying to publicly CONDITION or state that Organic 'has no health benefits" needs this caliber of security. With out being independently validated there is no security.There are many industries present who choose money over your health.This policed effort needs to be conducted especially since there is no sufficient research on the long-term effects of pesticides on human health.These facts can be evaluated,tested and verified by any one.Organic food has been grown by our ancestors for generations with no health problems, there has never been a safe study on the alternative. In the mean time governments, bureaucrats, the USDA or any other countries PROPERGANDA will continue.
They claim irradiated vegetable juice is identical to fresh, raw,living vegetable juice. There is no "counter education" (plus they are not policed) about the phytonutrients, digestive enzymes and "life force "properties" that are found in fresh organic foods which are completely destroyed through heating, genetically modifying and irradiation. There is no other way to put it other then they are operating out of extreme ignorance of food and nutrition.
Even an avocado, contains the nutrient components that reduces complications in child birth delivery. It would help a woman to loose unwanted weight. An avarcardo will help balance female hormones, it is one of the best hormone replacement therapies known however there is no money in patenting or selling them as a medication.Walnuts have a high content of omega's and help restore memory. Almonds target a part of the brain that generate emotional molecules for happiness and joy.
A simple ORGANIC leaf of spinach contains hundreds of natural medicines - phytonutrients that help prevent cancer, eye diseases, nervous system disorders, heart disease and much more. Every living vegetable is a powerhouse of disease-fighting medicine: Broccoli prevents cancer, beet greens cleanse the liver, cilantro removes heavy metals, celery prevents cancer helps with bone care, berries prevent heart disease and dark leafy greens help prevent over a dozen serious health conditions while boosting immune function and helping prevent other infections. Celery is 21 percent plant sodium the same as bones. It is that impressive as a raw food that it has over 9500 nutrients that target bone density . Cornell medical did a study and tested cerley on 1500 woman that had aggressive stages of osteoporosis. They were on nothing but raw foods (with Celery), with in 9 months every single one of them had gotten rid of their osteoporosis.
But when you subject these fruits and vegetables to enough radiation to kill 99.9% of the pathogens that may be hitching a ride, you also destroy many of the phytonutrients responsible for these tremendous health benefits!(Reference)
Many groups have shown that even the "scientist" genetically modifying food does not know EVERY risk associated. It is for this reason Dangerous New Organism Found and Linked to GMOs are appearing. Much like the long term and saftey with pesticide research - it is NON existent.
Stick to the SAFE and proven way with NO risks.
For many in the west, salad greens and whole foods are their one remaining source for phytonutrients. Given their diets of processed foods, junk foods and cooked foods, there are very few opportunities for these consumers to get fresh, phytonutrient-rich foods into their diet. It is unfortunate for some especially if in the united states as now the USDA wants to take that away, too, by mandating the irradiation of all fresh produce (Reference) There is no inferstructure policing this. It is for this reason why most will be reading here for teh first time why fresh, living produce helps prevent sickness and why they are not reading about it through the pharmaceutical or medical industry.
Organic agriculture has notable ecological benefits. Its diverse cropping and farming techniques mimic nature. This supports more wildlife, as the buffer strips of native grasses and windrows of trees increase the habitat availability for birds and other native wildlife. Increased biological diversity is seen on and around organic farms.Local food greatly reduces food miles, the distance food travels from farm to dining table in a country. In the United States, food travel currently averages 1,800 miles. Thus, organic farms help reduce the huge contribution that agriculture makes to global warming. Soil building is a key component of organic methods, and deeper, healthy topsoil leads to less erosion. In addition, organic farming methods do not rely on synthetic, petroleum-based chemicals, which run off the farm fields and poison streams, lakes,and rivers.
A switch to the demand of organic produce will help farmers adapt and change over to the needed carbon negative bio dynamic farming and permaculture ways. Even innovative Urban farming using Aquapoinics for ORGANIC raw food in restaurant menus will surface- Only CONSUMER awareness and demand will result in a change in culture. There is no other system that can compare in a carbon negative food production and improving PUBLIC health.
A common perception is that the price of organic produce is not worth it as in most cases it will be slightly higher then non organic pesticide produce. In terms of your medical bill and health the math can be scrutinized in a different rational. What you pay down the road will be more then what you are paying right now.Organic LIVE foods are at the very end of the day NATURAL unpatentable medicines, this is a complete conflict of interest to the competing patented pharmaceutical medicines. It can be reasoned that sterilizing food either by pasteurization, pesticides, GMO, processing and irradiating is keeping the population sick and is towards genocide.
The following is just one example of an organic school nutrition song that can be used as part of upgrading the curriculum.
A natural sports drink is far superior to any "gaterrade" or toxic sugar and caffene "energy drinks". For example a raw food pineapple sports drink by Ken Rohla or the slow activating RAW Orange energy drink mix by David Wolfe.in his sun diet books.Kids are being conditioned from a very young age. They go on to develop health problems due to there being NO nutrition education in place warning about these PARTICULAR dangers. Monsanto are one unregulated highly connected company responsible for this, but not all kids are as stupid.
Essential equipment needed for Raw Organic Nutrition
Remember this is an ESSENTIAL investment in your long term health. Heavy duty blenders are needed as this is a life style and cheap department stall grade blenders may burnout. Raw food juicers and food processors are far superior to blenders. You will be using juicers the most as you will be drinking them and using them in other recipes. A raw food juicer is superior to all others in extraction capacity, for example compared to centrifugal juicers etc. The Solo Star II Juice Extractor is one example.
There are even hand juicers recommended for those who need to juice on the road. Next you will need sprouting equipment.Essential and easy sprouting can be done in the kitchen with out the need for soil. Sprouting can be done by getting a dozen containers which means 6 can sprout and 6 can be in the fridge to be eaten. Seeds are packed with nutrients, sprouted seeds are even better. As each grows, proteins, enzymes, vitamins and other nutrients increase whilst becoming more bioavailable. At the same time toxins and enzyme inhibitors are reduced, increasing digestibility.-Reference.
Fresh - sprouts grown at home and harvested at the dinner table are the freshest food you’ll ever eat. They won’t have lost vitamins like shop bought vegetables or have travelled round the world. They will be organically grown, full of life and energy. Cheap - sprouting is ridiculously cheap! You can get pounds of greens for pennies.Easy - it all boils down to "just add water." With few resources and very little time or effort, you can supply yourself an abundance of live food, in your home, all year round. If you travel, they can too.
Varied - you can grow many more young plants than you would find in a shop, your salads and recipes will always have something new, diversity is the spice of life.
Red radish seeds
Probably the best food processsor and juicer in one would have to goto the Vitamix or blendtech devices.The Vitamix machine is not a blender or a juice extractor. It's so much more. The surgical stainless steel blades rotate at 240 miles per hour, pulverizing whole foods down to the cellular level. Valuable nutrients locked inside the pulp, skins and seeds of fruits and vegetables cannot be absorbed because the phytonutrients are trapped within plant cells which need to be ruptured. The Vitamix machine ruptures the cell walls of fresh, whole foods to make these phytonutrients more bio-available. Remember this is an investment into your well being.
Panacea uses the Vitamix machine and will feature this device in our open source raw food curricula. This equipment has distinct advantages for making whole food dips and soups. This machine can make soups with out too much heat and help keep the nutrients in tact.Another good introduction to these machines
A food dehydrator can be considered to be the equivalent of a raw food oven. This process takes the water out but leaves the phytonutrients intact when used below 112 degree's. You do not really need it however this contraption allows for more diverse recipes and has the advantage of being able to make preservable NUTRIENT food.You can easily make more nutrient dense lasagna, pizza,cookies, breads,burgers and even raw food crackers or corn chips. All with the nutrient content in tact. Make sure your food dehydrator has a temperature control below 112 degree's.
Nutrients in tact -Raw Corn/Flax chips and dip!
Corn chips can be made with their enzymes intact, however this is not done in any other nutritional circles besides raw food. This is easy to do in a food dehydration unit where the RAW corn is kept at a temperature that keeps the nutrients and ENZYMES in tact.
Spiral Slicer is also called a SaladAcco and is only necessary if you want to make diverse recipes. This unit is able to make raw angel hair pasta spaghetti from Squash or Zucchini. You can also make potato chips and ravioli shells. This inexpensive tool can also make great salads.
Note - You can get stared with just raw food smoothies and work you way up progressively.After this equipment is aquired then we can move onto:
Essential Raw Food and Organic Nutritional Choices
Use of Oils - when ever using oils in live food you must get ORGANIC raw ,cold pressed un processed oils whether nut,or seed oil. You must make sure that it is first cold pressed, meaning they are pressing the material and extracting the oil with out using solvents and chemicals to extract more oil out of it. Conventional oils in the pressing process are also heated to very high degree's so they can extract the most amount of oil. Like in normal cooking with food heating you will kill the beneficial enzymes and nutrients,its ceases to be "live food".
There are other Super food oils (superfoods are covered in more detial later). Industrial Hemp seed oil (not illegal)- Cold Pressed Hemp Seed Oil contains a high content of EFA's, and over 30% superdigestable, Complete Protein, Gluten free, rich in minerals and high in fibre. Better than Soy and more protein than Meat. The value of this perfect ratio in Omega's cannot be understated- Beneficial for:
Heart Disease,Cancers,Diabetes,Arthritis,Asthma,Premenstrual Syndrome,Allergies,Inflammatory Tissue Conditions,Water Retention,Skin Conditions,Vitality, Calmness under Stress.
Cold pressed Hemp seed Oil can also be helpful in multiple sclerosis (in places where EFS consumption is high Multiple sclerosis is very rare).
* Omega-3s are required for the development of the brain of the fetus and for brain function in the adult
* Omega-3s are necessary for: visual function (retina), adrenal function (stress) and sperm formation;
* cystic fibrosis (Omega-3 and Omega-6 rich oils loosed the viscous mucus secretions and relieve breathing difficulties);
* some cases of sterility and miscarriage;
* some glandular malfunctions;
* some behavioural problems (schizophrenia, depression, manic-depressive disorder etc);
* addictions (to drugs and alcohol)
Also there is Sacha Inchi oil which is a rich and natural legacy from the ancient civilizations of Peru culminating with the Incas, which has been carefully guarded by native communities in the Peruvian Rainforest. It is a native oleaginous plant which seeds have a high content of unsaturated fatty acids such as Omega 3, 6 & 9, and a high level of proteins.
Taste - typically the three things that are "sampled"for taste are oils,salt and sugars.With salt there are many different types of salt, refined salt being very toxic to the body. When ever using salt in raw food dishes,you must use an unheated and un refined salt. Not all salt is created equal, for example Himalayan crystal rock salt is the cleanest salt available anywhere on the planet and contains all of the elements that are found in the human body. This salt is absolutely pristine and is identical to the ancient oceans, as it was dried up by the sun millions of years ago.Himalayan crystal rock salt contains 84 of the 92 trace minerals known to man, and no other natural or man-made salt has this many minerals. It is important to have the right amount and type of salt.
There are many benefits to Himalayan crystal rock salt. These include:
* Re-mineralising the body with 84 minerals and trace elements that are essential to good health
* Assists in the cellular absorption of minerals
* Replenishes the body’s electrolytes and balances the body’s pH
* Brings about significant improvements in the respiratory, circulatory, and nervous systems
* it improves the connective tissue in the organs
Compare this with the typical table salt,which contains NONE of these health benefits.This salt is a very pure form of sodium chloride with other added chemicals to keep it from caking etc. This is why the salt that you can find at most stores is not in a form (due to the extraction and processing ) which the body can utilize. In fact it can lead to over consumption and blood pressure problems. Hence whole and unrefined salt that is mined, ground and crushed with the mineral content in tact like Celtic sea salt or Himalayan crystal rock salt is the best.
Himalayan Rock salt (left) Celtic mineral salt (Right)
Better for the body with many other benefits. This does not mean consume a lot of salt, you can actually get plenty of sodium in the foods you eat.The education on breakfast choices and others are lacking like the salt issue. Compare the following EDUCATION contained in this raw super food breafast to the typical education on breafast.
Enhancing childrens health and their learning capacities through ORGANIC raw food nutrition cannot be underestimated. Especialy since researchers have found: Study shows link between morbid obesity, low IQ in toddlers.Studies have shown that what you feed your child before the age 3 will positively or negatively impact their IQ when remeasured at the age of 8. A child fed sugary, fatty and processed food before the age of 3 would have a lower IQ at the age of 8 then if you didn't feed them those food groups.-Reference
In Appleton High School USA they an experimented – They removed all vending machines and junk food from the cafeteria and replaced them with watercoolers and fresh food. The amazing change it had on students, their behavior and attention in class is profound- Reference
Essentail is Jucing wheat grass. Like sprouting growing your own is EASY and is a FRACTION of the cost of buying it. Doctors in bed with big pharma will not be advising this.Wheatgrass provides chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes. Wheatgrass helps blood flow, digestion, general detoxification of the body and is great for weight loss. Wheatgrass has a high concentration chlorophyll. Diets high in chlorophyll lower risks of colon cancer. You cannot detract from the simple facts that wheatgrass:
* 30mls of freshly squeezed wheatgrass juice is equivalent in nutritional value to 1kg of leafy green vegetables
* Wheatgrass contains over 90 minerals, including high concentrations of the most alkaline minerals: potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium
* It contains the essential enzymes: Protease (assists in protein digestion), Cytochrome Oxidase (a powerful anti oxidant), Amylase (facilitates digestion), Lipase (a fat splitting enzyme), Transhydrogenase (strengthens the heart muscle) & Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) (found in all body cells and is known for its ability to lessen the effect of radiation and slow cellular aging)
* Just one teaspoon of Wheat Grass powder, weighing a mere 3.5 grams, is nutritionally equal to an entire spinach salad weighing a full 50 grams - it packs a punch!
* Wheatgrass has more vitamin C than oranges and twice the vitamin A as carrots!
* Wheat grass juice helps your body to build red blood cells which carry oxygen to every cell. By increasing the oxygenation the body you can help offset smog and carbon monoxide and increase your endurance during physical exercise
* It also contains 19 amino acids, the building blocks of protein
What to get started with? Note you can eat snacks of this stuff when starting out to neutralize any cravings.Start progressively if need be.There is a diverse range of fruits nuts and seeds:
An introductory list can include:
Fresh Fruit AND smoothies/juices:
tropical fruits and zucchini
NOTE! -Check the list of super foods below for needed extras and variations.
Fresh vegetables and vegetable juices can include:
swiss chard,turnips and watercress
NOTE! -Check the list of super foods below for needed extras and variations
Nuts and Seeds : Almonds,brazil nuts,cashews,filberts,flaxseeds,hazel nuts, macadamia nuts, pecans,pine nuts,pistachios,pumpkin seeds,sunflower,sesame seeds and walnuts.
Seaweeds must be raw and not toasted -These include Dulse, hijiki,kelp, Nori and wakames. Beans,legumes and grains can be soaked and sprouted only not cooked. If you are to use dried fruit you must not have any added sugar or sulfates. You can include raw and dried herbs. Try to find FRESH HERBS where ever you can. Hemp Butter (non illegal) Raw Tahini, Almond butter Kelp powder is also a substitute for salt. Raw Honey is a great addition.
If your wishing to get PEAK results and be a raw food purist technicaly you will leave out meat and poultry. Seafood dairy and eggs. Drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Sugar, artifical sweetners and preservatives. AND YOU WILL EXERCISE. You must not include any canned goods, basically any thing that is not a live food. Any cooked grains or beans, any thing cooked like pasta (you can make raw food pasta and pizza).These serve no purpose and are part of the reason for having no energy and health problems.
Food Combining is the Essential Nutrition Chain
Food combining is not just for taste, texture or pleasure. It is all to do with peak ABSORPTION and DIGESTION. These are the laws of nature. A wrong combo of food groups will break the nutritiuion chain, its as simple as that.Foods are chemicals. Our bodies will react differently to them. As in other chemical-experiments, so in our bodies, depending upon the combination of elements the reactions can be good for digestion and nutrient absorption or bad and give us gas or make us bloated and loose the benefits. This is why food combining is important. Daily food choices and menus must be centered around this concept for peak health. One of the most comprehensive resources on this issue can be found in "Food combining made easy by Dr. Herbert M. Shelton". or Food Combining and digestion by Steve Meyerowitz.
You can get a crash course on this issue by visiting the alive and raw page Food Combining Made Easy. A good summery of "Nine Rules for Proper Food Combining by Dr. Herbert M. Shelton" can be found on the Chetday web page. The idea is to organize your food into categories that balance carbohydrates, proteins and fat sources. Only when you can balance these vital classes can you sustain your energy throughout the day and help manage glucose(sugar) and contribute to preventing and controlling , heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
The Nine Basic Rules of Proper Food Combining by Dr. Herbert M. Shelton:
1. Eat acids and starches at separate meals. Acids neutralize the alkaline medium required for starch digestion and the result is fermentation and indigestion.
2. Eat protein foods and carbohydrate foods at separate meals. Protein foods require an acid medium for digestion.
3. Eat but one kind of protein food at a meal.
4. Eat proteins and acid foods at separate meals. The acids of acid foods inhibit the secretion of the digestive acids required for protein digestion.Undigested protein putrefies in bacterial decomposition and produces some potent poisons
5. Eat fats and proteins at separate meals. Some foods, especially nuts, are over 50% fat and require hours for digestion.
6. Eat sugars (fruits) and proteins at separate meals.
7. Eat sugars (fruits) and starchy foods at separate meals. Fruits undergo no digestion in the stomach and are held up if eaten with foods that require digestion in the stomach.
8. Eat melons alone. They combine with almost no other food.
9. Desert the desserts. Eaten on top of meals they lie heavy on the stomach, requiring no digestion there, and ferment. Bacteria turn them into alcohols and vinegars and acetic acids.
The consensus on the raw food breakfast is to stick to eating only fruit, smoothies or juices which can be either vegetable or fruit. Your daily diet must include fresh fruits, nuts, vegitables, salads and sprouts. A large green salad once a day is a good strategy.This gives you many options. It is not advised to combine fruit types or fruit with another food type. Fruits digest the fastest, for example melons should always be eated alone as they digest the fastest. This is why they don't blend well with other foods. If you do combine them, eat the fruit first and on an empty stomach.
Greens,sprouts and vegetables will combine well together. Avocado will be the only exception that will combine well with most fruits and vegetables. It is important to drink fresh vegetable or fruit juices on an empty stomach at least 30 minutes before any other food. Fluids digest quickly and it is important as they dilute the digestive enzymes.
Based on the digestion capacity its easy to remember start with:
Fruit -> Salad -> And Vegitables -> Then you can move onto your heavier stuff like Starches proteins (nuts) and fats .
Green smoothies with herbs, nuts and seeds are a great combination.A diverse range of raw food menus based on this knowledge will make this job easier. This is a task that Panacea is set out to achieve. In the near future Panacea will be disclosing an open source week to example of a varied raw food menu. This resource will include the many options and include others ideas featured on Youtube. Please check our free newsletter or this page for updates. In the mean time many free recipies can be found on youtube.Before you can get started tho, there are many super foods which must be also be included for peak nutrition.
Superiour Super foods -Unmatched capacity
Some Super foods -Goji ,Noni, Spirulina, Echinacea ,WheatGrass and Raw Honey
Always look for fair trade ORGANIC (certified) super foods.
Note -Not one superfruit or super food will provide all of the nutrients that our bodies need, however consuming whole foods (and lots of them) can be one of the most important contributing aspects of a healthy lifestyle. It is recommended you ALTERNATE between all of these. Super fruits like Açaí (Euterpe oleracea), Blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium), Cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon), grapepe (red, Vitis vinifera), Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana), Noni (Morinda citrifolia), Pomegranate (Punica granatum), Seabuckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides), Wolfberry (“goji”, Lycium barbarum), cocao, and papaya are a great addition to get this needed substance.
Sufficient intake of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are needed to fill this gap.Nutrients are circulated via the blood to nourish all of the body’s organs and cells. Nutrient-rich whole superfruits give your body advantages and accelerate this process. They will be more efficient in this goal and are an easy practice to attain peak health. Super fruits or foods are intended to be consumed here as whole foods, not processed, blended, and diluted juices. RAW and ORGANIC.Making common fruit juices to off set their natural acidity and sourness or flavor means the nutrient content suffers. Especially detrimental is that juice processing eliminates the digestive health value of the fruit’s natural fiber content—the two kinds of dietary fiber providing many valuable health benefits for you.
Consuming ORGANIC WHOLE FOOD Superfruits such as (separately and not all at once) Mango, Cherry, sweet and tart species, Figs, Red raspberry, Oranges, Seaberry (seabuckthorn) Strawberry, Guava, Goji (wolf berry), Blackberry, Red grape, Blackcurrant Cranberry, Date , Kiwifruit, Pomegranate , Papaya , Açaí, Blueberry , Dried plum (prune) is the only way to be sure.
Typically each super food is classed in this category based on the antioxidant vitamins A (from plant compounds called carotenoids), C, and E; B vitamins; essential dietary minerals; amino acids and protein; dietary fiber, soluble and insoluble; omega fats; and phytosterols. Plus classes of nonnutrient phytochemicals called carotenoids and polyphenols (also known as phenolics or phenolic acids). Both of these classes include natural color chemicals called pigments, consisting of hundreds to thousands of individual compounds giving color and other qualities to plants.
The following is a list of the potential benefits for maintaining health and lowering the risk of diseases by anORGANICwhole-fooddiet involving superfruits such as Mango, Cherry, sweet and tart species, Figs, Red raspberry, Oranges, Seaberry (seabuckthorn) Strawberry, Guava, Goji (wolfb erry), Blackberry, Redd grape, Blackcurrant Cranberry, Date , Kiwifruit, Pomegranate , Papaya , Açaí, Blueberry and Dried plum (prune). This is based on scientific research.These Superfruits can address:
. Cardiovascular diseases
. Inflammation and pain
. Several types of cancer
. Microbial, fungal, parasitic, and viral infections
. Metabolic syndrome, obesity, and diabetes
. Gastrointestinal and digestive disorders
. Symptoms of premature aging such as neurological disorders
. Immune deficiencies and allergies
. Skin and dental disorders
There are many examples of beneficial fats in edible plants, especially in their seeds. These are mono- and polyunsaturated (healthy for your heart) oils from peanuts, sunflowers, sesame seeds and olives. The 2 classed super fruits such as seaberry and Açaí are unique in that they contain oil within their berry pulp, and several superfruits have edible seeds containing rich amounts of heart-healthy oils, including figs, red grapes, kiwifruits, blackcurrants, raspberries, and blackberries.The important of the Super fruits is dietary fiber.These plant fibers include natural components such as polysaccharides,gums, pectins, and inulins (prebiotic soluble fibers) as well as cellulose and lignans (insoluble fibers). These two kinds of fiber—soluble and insoluble—are in all plant foods.
Soluble fiber is known as viscous or prebiotic fiber for, respectively, how it forms a watery gel in the upper digestive tract and becomes a food source for the billions of good bacteria in the colon of the lower digestive tract. Insoluble fiber does not become involved in any active digestive process but rather absorbs water and passes through the digestive system. The end products of the normal colonic fermentation of the prebiotic fiber contained in superfruits, short-chain fatty acids contribute numerous physiological effects that promote health. For example:
.Aiding in insulin secretion and glucose absorption, possibly benefi ting
people with diabetes
.Providing nourishment to cells lining the lower intestine
.Reducing synthesis and absorption of cholesterol
.Stimulating immune defenses
Further references can be found in Paul Gross’s super fruits book. One of the most vigorous open source teachers of raw and super foods is David Wolfe — Health, Eco, Nutrition, and Natural Beauty Experthas to be up there.
With a masters degree in nutrition, and a background in science and mechanical engineering, David Wolfe is considered one of the world’s top authorities on natural health, beauty nutrition, herbalism, chocolate, and organic superfoods. Leading the field with his vision, mission, education, and business, David has over 15 years of dedicated experience and understanding of the inner workings, the delicate chemistry, and hardcore mechanics of the human body and how the body is affected by the modern-day stressors of today’s fast-paced, over-worked, and unbalanced lifestyle, which is literally a “killer” to our beauty, health, and longevity.-Refernce.
Super foods contain a far higher concentration of nutrients than other foods and must be included to access peak nutrition.
It is important to know what amount of super foods to take with other raw foods. A diet of different types of super food and raw food should be considered and understood before commencing.
Here is a breif overview of Super foods and thier advantages, these can be added into smoothies, raw food dishes or added to a side dish with what you normal eat, for example if you are a meat eater, you can include these foods as half on, and half off. Super foods and their belnds are basically designed to increase Cellular Rejuvenation Capacity,Increase Oxygenation of the Blood and Brain,and Maximize your Body's Defenses Against Mental, Emotional, and Physical Stress.
You cannot compare the protein content of spirulina, we really mean that as it has the highest protein content in the world. Once its liquified into a smoothie or taken with water it can immediately be absorbed by the body. 50% of protein is destroyed when cooking.Compare all the energy needed to absorb protein from a streak and how much you can absorb, spirulina is an instant plant based protein which is a far superior absorbable protein source.Spirulina is truly one of Nature's richest Superfoods. It is a pure, natural, whole, nutrient dense, microscopic, edible, blue-green algae packed with complete and absorbable protein, chlorophyll, antioxidants and essential vitamins and minerals. It is a balanced whole food that contains over 100 synergistic nutrients that are easily assimilated. It is literally at the bottom of the food chain - a concentrated "nutrient soup" from which all life can be nourished. Spirulina is a power packed "green food" that has served as a significant food source of the Mayan and Aztec peoples (who were known to mix it with cacao) and Africans.
It is certainly one of the world's healthiest foods. Spirulina has even been used with integrated Biogasdigesters in West Africa to create a super food, fertilizer and energy to sustain their community.This self sufficient system was done by a Pioneer in Production of Spirulina for Combatting Malnutrition Ripley D. Fox You can diversify between Blue Green Algae and chlorella.It is suggested you take all of them, but at a separate time and alternate. Each one has their own set of advantages.
RAW CACAO POWDER contains many rare key nutrients that enhance physical and mental well-being. RAW CACAO POWDER also contain more ANTIOXIDANT flavanoids than any other food tested including Red Wine, Green Tea and Blueberries. Other essential minerals present in Cacao are Calcium, Zinc, Iron, Copper, Sulfur, and Potassium. Cacao also contains many chemicals that enhance physical and mental well-being, including alkaloids, proteins, magnesium, beta-carotene, leucine, linoleic acid, lipase, lysine, and some neurotransmitters such as dopamine and anandamine. This is considered essential. Note - If melting this stuff, only heat the coconut oil + cacao mass for example and cacao butter so that it melts, at the lowest heat. It should only get up to 20 or 25C. Use water and not direct heat. If it goes over 30C in these things, it will not retain the nutrients, antioxidants and so forth.Cocoa may help control blood pressure, reduce insulin resistance and provide other benefits to cardiovascular health.
Super Food Raw Maca Powder
Peruvian Research Shows That Maca Improves Memory,Increases Oxygen in The Blood, Improves the Function of Neurotransmitters and Increases Libido
This Berry Contains The Most Powerful Probiotic In The World Goji Berries are a very rich source of vitamin C, having 500 times more vitamin C per ounce than oranges, actually more almost than any fruit you could name. They are also a superb source of vitamin A, not surprising because they are a really pretty red color. Goji berries also have vitamins B1, B2, B6, and E; they are becoming a famous antioxidant.They are also a rich source of both selenium and germanium and have hence been used in a number of clinical trials involving cancer patients. When given to patients undergoing chemotherapy, the berries conferred significant protection for the liver. In Oriental medicine, they are said to correct chi deficiency, meaning that people with low energy, insomnia, heart palpitations, and even anxiety are more comfortable after consuming goji berries. The berries have 18 amino acids (higher than bee pollen) and 21 trace minerals, linoleic acid, and more beta carotene than carrots. They are also a rich source of both selenium and germanium and have hence been used in a number of clinical trials involving cancer patients.

The berries have 18 amino acids (higher than bee pollen) and 21 trace minerals, linoleic acid, and more beta carotene than carrots.In vitro studies suggest that goji berries kill many kinds of cancer cells. The mechanism whereby this happens is believed to involve some factor that inhibits the ability of the cell to divide, thus lowering its reproductive capacity. A large study in Japan suggested that tumor growth was inhibited by 58% among the patients eating goji berries as compared to the control groups. A study in Mongolia showed that patients eating the goji berries had a significant increase in lymphocyte activity and that their blood began to resemble that of much younger persons.
To get the desired energy and health enhancement, it has been recommended that you consume 2-3 grams of TIBETAN GOJI BERRIES berries daily, which is about 20 to 40 berries. A good daily intake of TIBETAN GOJI BERRIES is 10-30 grams (a small handful). Goji berries may be used as snacks or mixed with recipes or smoothies like other dried fruits.
Always look for Fair trade ORGANIC (certified) Acai or super foods.Pure acai is one of nature's most phenomenal superfoods. The Acai (a-sigh-e) berry comes from only one place in the world, The Amazon Rain Forest. The acai berry is used to make all kinds of highly beneficial supplements such as acai juice, acai powder, acai capsules, acai pulp, acai extracts and so on. Acai is a highly beneficial superfood filled with antioxidants, anthocyanins, healthy fats such as omega 3's, 6's,9's, amino acids, fiber and even protein. Its no wonder it has been called a superfood. At least one study has shown that chemical compounds extracted deom the Acai berry slow leukemia cells in laboratory cultures and others show it has a powerful effect against oxygen free radicals. It shows the potential in cancer prevention, reduces inflammation implicated in heart and lung disease, allergies and auto immune disorders.
Pomegranate has been tested to show positive fighting capacities against alzheimer disease .
* a great source of potassium
* more antioxidants compared to other juices and even wine!
* vitamin B and Vitamin C
* great source of fiber
* helps prevent heart disease
* keeps your immune system in top notch conditions
* prevents buildup of material in your arteries.
Ayurvedic medicine uses all parts of the pomegrante, fruits leaves and flowers. This fruit is high in many polyphenols and antioxidants, some of them are unique to this fruit. It has also shown in human trials to to reduce several risk related to oxidation and atheroscloerosis that are involved in heart disease. The seed-juice sacs of this fruit are called "arils" and are a significant source of linolenic acid which has shown potential for combating insulin resistance.Pomegranate seed oil has also been effective against breast cancer cells in the lab.
Aside from being easy to grow your self blueberry’s have a broad range of almost all the essential nutrients. They are present at low to good levels for achieving daily value percentages.Three
nutrients with excellent DV percentages are dietary fiber (mainly from the
berry skin), vitamin C, and the essential mineral manganese. The main attraction of blueberries may be the skin’s unique profile of blue-pigmented anthocyanins and resveratrol, two intensively researched scientific topics.
Blueberries are notable for their anthocyanin content, which imparts
the blue skin color, but they also contain other polyphenols with potential
health value. For example, the proanthocyanidin compounds made
famous by the success of cranberry juice as a possible antibacterial,
anti-adhesion agent for relieving urinary tract infections also are present
in blueberries. Blueberries or their phenolic extracts are being studied
for potential roles in a variety of conditions affecting human health.
Anthocyanins such as cyanidin and delphinidin glycosides are being
investigated for their effects on aging, memory, physical performance,
inflammation, cardiovascular, metabolic, and anticancer mechanisms.

Super foods with Medicinal Mushrooms
We can thank Raw foods expert David Wolfe for reminding us about the benefits of Cordyceps medicinal mushrooms and the reasons why they have been hoarded by royalty for generations in several different cultures.There are many more underrated beneficial medicinal super food mushrooms. Fair trade and organic companies like JavaFit have superior culture tweaking educational products, they have put Cordyceps with 13 other beneficial mushrooms into a delicious organic coffee called Java Impact. This is just one example how our nutrition, culture and consumer habits can be unmatched and effective by new super food menu's and fair trade.
The following is a list of Medicinal Mushrooms contained in this drink. Far from a "normal cup of coffee".
Cordyceps Mushroom This mushroom has a long history in traditional Chinese medicine as well as traditional Tibetan medicine. Cordyceps is known as a great supplement for athletes. Cordyceps first really became popular with athletes in the U.S. after the 1993 Olympics when several of China's track and field athletes set 5 new world records and their coach told reporters the secret was that the runners were taking Cordyceps at his request. Many athletes have since tried it and found that Cordyceps increase their physical performance and endurance.
Ganoderma (Reishi) Mushroom
Ganoderma, also known as red reishi mushroom has been used in traditional Asian medicines for more than 4,000 years making it one of the oldest mushrooms known to have been used in medicine. The Reishi mushroom is a symbol for health, and is depicted in the Emperor's residences in the Forbidden City as well as the Summer Palace. The Chinese goddess of healing Kuan Yin is sometimes depicted holding a Reishi mushroom. The mushroom revered as the "Mushroom of Immortality", Reishi is truly one of the most impressive medicinal mushrooms both in its potency and its wide range of potential benefits. Because of its presumed health benefits and apparent absence of side-effects, it has attained a reputation in the East as the ultimate herbal substance.
Since the 16th century, Chaga mushrooms have been used in Russia for medicinal purposes. Chaga is usually grated into a fine powder and used to brew a beverage resembling coffee. Researchers have noted the Chaga mushroom has potent antioxidant activity, anti-inflammatory properties and may be able to lower blood sugar levels.
Maitake is commonly found on oak trees. In Japan, the Maitake can grow to more than 50 pounds, earning this giant mushroom the title "King of Mushrooms." Maitake is one of the major culinary mushrooms used in Japan plus is prized in traditional Chinese and Japanese herbology as a medicinal mushroom.
Extracts from Mesima have been used for centuries in traditional Korean medicine. Mesima's health benefits have also been studied at Harvard Medical School and the British Journal of Cancer. Many studies have concluded that Mesima extract possesses powerful immune enhancing properties.
Poria is actually one of the most commonly used mushrooms in Traditional Chinese Medicine appearing in more than 30% of all traditional formulas. Poria is famed as one of the eight treasures in chinese medicine.
The Oyster mushroom's name refers to the shape of its body. The oyster is one of the more commonly sought wild medicinal mushrooms. The oyster mushroom is frequently used in Japanese, Korean and Chinese cookery as a delicacy. Oyster mushrooms are delicious and nutritious. Oyster mushrooms are rich in vitamin C, B complex and protein. Vitamin B3 in oyster mushrooms is 5-10 times higher as compared to any other vegetable.
This corresponds with its use in traditional Chinese medicine to increase vitality. Suehirotake mushrooms have been used medicinally for thousands of years. Suehirotake is a well-documented and researched mushroom due to its prolific presence around the world.
Shiitake is Japan's largest agricultural export and is now the most popular and most cultivated exotic mushroom in the world. In China, shiitake has a history that dates back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 A.D.). The mushroom was used not only as a food but was taken as a remedy for upper respiratory diseases, poor blood circulation, liver trouble, exhaustion and weakness, and to boost chi, or life energy. It was also believed to prevent premature aging.
Lion's Mane Mushroom
Lion's Mane has traditionally been used to improve memory and for nervous system support. An ancient saying about Lion's Mane is that those who consumed it would have the memory of a lion and nerves of steel. Some studies are indicating that Lion's Mane improves memory and may even slow the onset of dementia. A double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled trial showed improved cognitive ability
Historical records indicate that Agarikon may have been the most important medicinal mushroom of ancient Europe. The earliest preserved record dates to 65 B.C., when it was listed by Greek physician Dioscorides as a remedy in the Materia Medica. It is said to have been considered an elixir for long life.
Turkey Tail Mushroom
Turkey Tail mushrooms are one of the most researched and respected of the medicinal mushrooms. This member of the polypore family has longest history of medicinal use in China and Japan. Turkey Tail is generally consumed by drinking the tea made by boiling them for a prolonged period.
Originally discovered in Brazil, Agaricus blazei is widely consumed in many countries. This mushroom was imported to Japan from Brazil and cultivated in the 1970s. In Japan, this mushroom is very popular for its health benefits where it is used by close to 500,000 people.
True Tinder Polypore Mushroom
We know that this fungus, a natural antibiotic, was used as far back as the fifth century BC by Hippocrates to cauterize wounds. Since then, it has been used in China for its medicinal benefits.
Putting it all together - Super Food Smoothies
The Human body is unique it can become stronger and flourish in mind and body with the right education. Smoothies are in a class of their own to achieve this. Beauty and longevity is no secret formula. They are contained in RAW whole and super foods. Exercise and Fresh spring water are the only other missing ingrediant. Smoothies are easily digested and can it in a whole host of nutrients and flavor. Certain bases are better then others.Who again can tell us better than David?
Raw food with 10% meat
First and foremost, organically farmed meat is our only choice for ethical responsibility to the environment, ourselves and animals. To reach the most diverse audience as possible you can enhance your current meat dishes with RAW FOOD added. This 10% meat concept WITH RAW FOOD is to have a reduced meat dish but preserve the quantity of the dish and will fill you up. This combination has greater health benefits and allows access to the essential nutrients that only raw food can provide.
Yourself and a typical restaurant menu can enhance a typical DULL meat by using this concept.Picture a typical mushroom steak as picture below.
By picture it, Panacea means EVALUATE the non renewable energy source used to create the meat, the concept of the chemicals, the unethical farming conditions, the FAT content, the knowledge that comes with the involved industry and dish from eating it (nothing healthy). By simply ordering this steak you are basically saying via the result and education involved, give me a toxic chemical cocktail that gives me no indication of the health effects and is created by unethical practice, plus one that was produced using energy sources and chemicals which are counter productive to my children's future. Simple enough?
Now let’s look at the nutritional comparison we can assimilate into a more advanced dish by using the EDUCATIONAL concept provided by Panacea, whilst still keeping the same theme of a mushroom steak asthetically.
First we will look at how we replace the chips and vegetables with superior raw food vegetables, then we simply mix 10% of the meat with a vegetarian "meat" base together. The result a reduced meat content with more exotic tasting vegetable combinations and peak nutrition. Examples of the Bases to fuse with together with the meat (reduced to 10%), and make a full steak and or meat patty are:
New Quorn mince which is described by all that tried it in the survey that you cannot taste the difference to meat. New Quorn mince has all the texture and taste of beef mince which means not only will your favorite recipes taste delicious but, as Quorn mince is low in fat, you'll also be serving a healthier meal. In fact Quorn mince contains 2.8g of fat per 100g compared with beef mince which contains over 15g of fat per 100g.Quorn products are made from myco-protein which is a mushroom protein, it is produced by a process of fermentation similar to the process used when making yogurt.
Examples of Vegitarian bases you can add 10% meat too:
There are a few more varieties that can be chosen and tailored nutritionally for this task, but we have with these examples a basic idea. Now a back round on other ingredients we will be using to assimilate the mushroom theme into the dish whilst keeping the aesthetic mushroom steak qualities.
Nutritionally, quinoa might be considered a super grain--although it is not really a grain, but the seed of a leafy plant that's distantly related to spinach. Quinoa has excellent reserves of protein, and unlike other grains, is not missing the amino acid lysine, so the protein is more complete (a trait it shares with other "non-true" grains such as buckwheat and amaranth).
The World Health Organization has rated the quality of protein in quinoa at least equivalent to that in milk. Quinoa offers more iron than other grains and contains high levels of potassium and riboflavin, as well as other B vitamins: B6, niacin, and thiamin. It is also a good source of magnesium, zinc, copper, and manganese, and has some folate (folic acid).
Cardamom, sometimes called Grains of Paradise, is a pungent, aromatic herb first used around the eighth century, and is a native of India. It was probably imported into Europe around A.D. 1214.A stimulant and carminative, cardamom is not used in Western medicine for it own properties, but forms a flavoring and basis for medicinal preparations for indigestion and flatulence using other substances, entering into a synergetic relationship with them. The Arabs attributed aphrodisiac qualities to it (it features regularly in the Arabian Nights) and the ancient Indians regarded it as a cure for obesity. It has been used as a digestive since ancient times. A medicinal (perhaps aphrodisiac) cordial can be made by macerating seeds in hot water.
The meat is organic and the mushroom steak(10% meat weighed out) is then mixed into the vegetarian paty base, this still looks like a whole steak in appearance and tastes like it. It also will fill you up the same.
10% ORGANIC meat infused with a vegitarian meat base
Finished 10% meat inside the vegitarian meat base
Panacea used vegetable protein strips as part of the meat base and simply created a reduced meat content into the mix. Can you tell the difference? Now picture replacing the typical cooked veggies from the first picture with the diversity of raw food vegetables or salads. You cannot compare this with the typical mushroom steak, not in taste diversity or nutritional content.
At present Panacea is currently compiling the largest free and open source EDUCATION menu covering all these concepts. This resource will feature easy to follow menu's intended to reach 100% raw food people, 50/50, 10% meat people and any one wishing to learn general PEAK nutrition. These menu's will feature our own and promote other raw food recopies to support their work. The resource will have EVERYTHING to get you started and diversify. In the mean time please search out the MANY FREE raw food recipies on You Tube and support them.
These super food and raw food menus must find there way into menus and the curricula.There are a myriad of raw food chiefs who are beginning to reeducate us on how to live with peak health benefits and with the highest quality of life, we are all needed to spread this information and support the truth about raw foods.To help this effort the Panacea online university is currently offering a COMPLETE instructional raw food and super food resource for EVALUATION and study. To qualify for this material you can be a academic, researcher, resturant or any one INTENT on starting this health initiative and supporting raw food nutrition. Note- these resources cannot be legally "lent out", sold, distributed or used for any other purpose. Those who are able to make a go of this resource can contact us to discuss collaboration
If you are a member of the public, government health service, restaurant, or philanthropic groups who wishes to support this concept and help implement these health benefits, pleasecontact Panacea.
With the diseases present today, this education is needed most in the west, enough local public pressure could help adopt a PUBLIUC HOLIDAY or awareness drive for raw food health benefits. Imagine a public holiday to do this?.Muksa-virut is a Sanskrit word that means "meatless." On holy days, Thai people visit local Buddhist temples and donate food and provisions to the monks in residence. In a holy ritual at day's end, the monks bestow the donors with health, prosperity, and tranquility, but ask them to adhere, at least for a day, to five simple rules for living a peaceful life.One of these rules is to refrain from killing all creatures, both large and small.By extension of this rule, Thai people eat vegetarian meals during these holy days.
The West has a health crisis, today we have more patented drugs, doctors and hospitals then ever in human history, we also have more disease than ever. Make any sense?.
We need to do more then what we are doing. This information needs your help to spread effectively through blogs, friends, community groups and the media. Please help forward this page to your as many as possible. We are all needed to work together, that is the very essence of the Panacea spirit. Only as a community can we create security. There is no university, faculty or garage teaching these methods at this time, if you can help this effort or wish to receive training please contact us
