Health Care Reform

Peace be with you

I thought I might weigh in with my own views on Health Care Reform. I am not a doctor, but even if I were a doctor it would be illegal for me to practice the recommendations of this opine. In all fairness MDs are doctors of medicine, not doctors of health. But likewise, it is not fair at all to the patients who are literally being poisoned to death by pharmaceuticals.

I mention poison because that’s what causes all our disease. Anything taken into your body that acts like a toxin must be removed by the body or else it accumulates to the point it causes disease. Of course the simplest answer to bad health is stop putting toxins into your body! Toxins include GMO foods, pesticides, herbicides, larvicides, fungicides, animal fats, and most commonly cooked foods.

I can hear you already saying, “what the fuck tad, are you telling us to give up cooking our food?” In the short answer, “yes.” I will however attempt to give you the long answer.

I first became a raw foodest in the high desert of Arizona. I obtained my first Essene literature in which Jesus teaches us that wheat grass is human’s perfect food, and that bread is to be made out of sprouted grains, baked in the sun. I converted from my long held agnostic beliefs to gnosticism. Then I went through life trying to keep my diet 51% raw food, only knowing it was a tenant of my metamorphic beliefs. Today I now know why Jesus “the healer” taught such doctrines, and the meaning of the story that Buddha sat under a tree eating nothing but hemp seeds.

After you eat cooked food you experience a phenomena known as “digestive leukocytosis.” What that is is an increase in the number of white blood cells in the body immediately after eating cooked food. White blood cells are what the body releases to fight illness. So in other words your body thinks your cooked food is a disease attacking it.

Science has known since 1930 that people who ate 51% of their diet as raw foods would have not have leukocytosis. Dr. Paul Kouchakoff, Institute of Clinical Chemistry in Lausanne, Switzerland, discovered that people who ate 51% cooked, refined (white flour, white rice, sugar), pasteurized, homogenized, or preserved, had their bodies treat their food as a disease.

When we cook food it loses half its nutritional value. Vitamin C is completely destroyed by cooking, and orthomolecular medicine has been using high doses of vitamin C to cure cancer since the 40’s. Cooking also kills the enzymes which the body then has to make in order to digest the cooked food. Food is much hard to digest when it has been over processed and cooked. The enzymes in a piece of fruit make it more absorbable than its cooked counter part, and way easier than a cooked steak or loaf of bread. Throw a loaf of wonder bread into your compost, and you will find it still there after everything else is composted. Throw a loaf down your throat and it will be in you colon for probably longer.

Any time you cook food it loses half it protein. A cooked hamburger may have 18 grams of protein, but that comes with 20 grams of fat. Meat is so hard to digest that only a portion of that 18 grams will be absorbed for use by your body. But don’t worry cause you’ll take up all the 20 grams of fat. It likes to congeal in your blood veins if no where else.

Alfalfa sprouts are 35% protein. They are also abundant in vitamins A, B, C, E and K, the minerals calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc, also carotene, chlorophyll, amino acids and trace elements. This protein is easily adsorbed by the body (assuming your colon isn’t packed with old cooked food).

I hear people claiming they need meat because they are anemic. I believe they are anemic because they eat meat. Raw cacao has 15% iron, the highest content of iron of any food known. It is also the highest natural source of magnesium, chromium, manganese, zinc, and vitamin C. Mix it with raw agave nectar and you have chocolate that is healthier than your steak and potatoes dinner.

Many things we use are toxins. Smoke of any kind is a toxin. Alcohol is also a toxin. Mercury dental fillings are toxins. Pharmaceuticals are deadly toxins. Not to mention the environmental, and government mandated toxin exposure that we are unfairly exposed to (fluoride and air pollution to mention just two). If we fixed our diets, ate half our food raw, then our bodies would be better able to fight off the toxin exposures we still need to socially moderate.

Unfortunately if you are not raw, and have not flushed out your toxins, you will not gain the full health benefits of a raw diet. The body’s main way of flushing toxins are out the digestive track. Believe me it is better than out the skin. But you’ll want to clean your colon. You can use an enema, or there are professional colon cleansing places for those who have the money. Once the road tar looking shit is removed from you colon you can absorb even more vitamins, and minerals. If you don’t clog it back up with cooked foods then you have eliminated your risk of colon cancer. There are many ways to detox. Teas, herbs, fasting, and even nutritionists to help.

With massive profits in the sickness business it is little wonder that only 6% of our doctors are trained in nutrition. Medicine treats symptoms, nutrition treats the underlying cause. Despite our obese society we are literally dying of malnutrition. Our food is grown in fields fertilized with 3 main minerals, Potassium, phosphorous, and nitrogen, while soil needs 52 different minerals. When the soil isn’t healthy, the plants are unhealthy. This leads to the need of even more pesticides, growth hormones, and other unnatural chemicals. Add to this the fact our food is harvested unripe and then shipped thousands of miles to our stores.

Raw foods are fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, leafs, fungi, sprouts and grasses. If you have a kitchen and want to prepare the tastiest food there are dehydrators, blenders, juicers, food processors, and recipe books. Sprouts are cheap, high in protein, anti-oxidants, vitamins, and enzymes. One pound of seeds makes between 10 and 14 pounds of sprouts.

If we dumped half of what we spend on health care on creating healthly raw food diets we could then use the other half for health care that no one needs. 26% of all patients released from US hospitals are more malnourished after they are released then they were when they were admitted. The medicine industry has a stake in keeping you in the dark about what is health. Health is your body curing itself. If you put the required nutrients into your body your body will heal itself. Where would the health care debate be if we didn’t lose 653,000 people to heart disease, 554,000 to cancer, and 225,000 to modern medicine each year? You truly are what you eat. Think about that next time you open a can.

    Tad, Tad, Tad. We’re ominvores. that means to be healthy we need to maintain a balanced diet. Problem is we’re human! Left to our own devices we’ll eat what tastes good and, in the short term, makes us feel good. Forget that crap about tooth fillings…it’s jive.

    Well-written and insightful post. I am of the mind that the job of health care should be about 75% nutrition… maybe more. Hippocrates would agree. I’m not the healthiest eater in the world but I am moving in the direction of a healthier, more natural diet.

    As far as being omnivores, it’s true we are, but that was a route we took not too long ago in our evolutionary history. Or, if you prefer, it wasn’t until Noah that God gave man permission to eat meat. We need protein to maintain a balanced diet, and there are more sources for protein than just meat. The Vitamin D in fatty tissue is also available from other sources… like the sun!

    Peace be with you Gentry

    I don’t know what you mean by balanced. To me balanced means enough of the correct substances to keep my immune system operating properly. Operating properly means no disease. I am a human and I don’t go for just what makes me feel good in the short term. That’s either a fallacy or a denial. I tend to eat what makes me feel good in the long term.

    I don’t buy the omnivore crap. We didn’t cook until we had fire. Meat didn’t come along until we could offer burnt offerings. I’m just telling you how we could afford to insure everyone by not making them sick. You tell the three quarter of a million people who die each year from heart disease that meat is “good” for you.

    As far as “that crap about tooth fillings” goes, riddle me this: why is the mercury paste toxic waste when it is sitting on the dentists tray, but is healthy as shit when it is scooped into your mouth? That stuff is among the most toxic stuff known to man. You keep drinking out of them pewter goblets bro, it worked wonders for the Romans.

    Lastly the so called vitamin D deficiency is not true. In a study published in March of 2005 showed the raw food group actually had more vitamin D in their systems. The study found that raw foodists had lower body mass indices and bone mass, but that their bone structure was healthy. What is called “the bone turnover” rate is normal, and C-reactive protein level is low.

    The article concluded, “In short, the people on the raw-food diet are lighter with lower body fat. They have less bone, but they have normal markers of bone turnover, higher-than-normal vitamin D and very low levels of leptin and inflammatory markers.”

    Maybe we know the value of sunshine too. But if you want to eat some vitamin D try sprouting sunflowers. Or if you want to eat something that taste good, makes you feel good and in the long term is good for you, try sprouting some sunflowers.

    Or try sprouting sunflowers:)

    Good post. There are also environmental benefits to a raw food diet that is sourced locally. The typical food product travels about 1,300 from farm to plate. Studies have shown that buying local food from farmer’s markets results in 5-17 less greenhouse gas due to less transportation.
