How Dead is Your Diet?
By Yuri Elkaim
foods are foods that have been cooked. They have lost their highly
beneficial enzymes, nutrients, and their life energy. They have been
stripped of the majority of their vitamins, minerals, and cancer
preventing phytonutrients. It is well known that heat causes
unfavourable chemical changes in food.
Many naturopathic doctors even state that "cooking food creates a host
of compounds that the body is not designed to metabolize."
Think about this…
We are the only
creatures on earth who cook their foods
- we also exhibit the most disease - while 99.99% of the plant foods on
our plant are available in their raw state. In fact, it has been shown
that cooking a potato creates over 400 known, unknown, and dangerous
Eating food that has been
above 180 degrees Fahrenheit causes a pathogenic response in the body
called leukocytosis whereby the white blood cells (immune cells) are
actually used to digest foods much as they would attack foreign
What this means to you is
that your body no longer operates as it should when it eats dead foods.
This has been confirmed in
hundreds of experiments and by the research of Swiss scientist Paul
Kouchakoff. These conditions predispose your body to
developing food allergies, sensitivities, and a hyperactive immune
system (remember my story!).
for Energy will show you how to transition from a dead food diet into a
way of eating that incorporates more alkalizing, enzyme-rich, energy
producing raw foods.
The difference between
dead and living foods can easily be seen in the following 2 kirlian
photographs. The one on the left is of raw organic broccoli. Notice the
energy emanating from it.
broccoli on the right has been lightly steamed for just 1 minute!
Notice the drastic reduction in energy or life force.
Considering that we are
physical beings with undeniable energy properties, which
broccoli would you rather feed your body?
