The Road to Raw

The Road to Raw
December 17, 2017 Stacey

Be prepared for a change, not only in what you eat but in your lifestyle, health and overall energy levels.

Food can either be medicine or poison. As nature intended, our food is our medicine and will allow the body to heal itself as it was designed to do. Whole plant-based food from nature provides maximum nutrition and minimum calories. Food is toxic when it is processed, refined and replete with unhealthy fats, sugar and salt – the food most people eat today and consider ‘normal’ actually provides little nutrition and maximum calories.

Raw, living whole food prevents and in many cases reverses diseases like arthritis, pain, allergies, digestive ailments, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, skin problems, autoimmune disorders and even cancer – which are considered lifestyle diseases, as they were relatively rare one hundred years ago until we started processing our food. Instead of aches, pains, fatigue and illness you can invest your energy into pursuing your dreams and living life to the fullest.

Raw food contains the enzymes we need for every bodily function and are rendered inactive when heated to temperatures about 42 degrees Celsius.

The transition to a new way of eating may take time as you are likely unaccustomed to eating primarily whole food, but once you begin this journey the payoff for eating nutrient-rich, low-calorie, easy-to-digest, living food happens quickly. Within weeks you will feel more energetic, healthy and upbeat and look more vibrant and slimmer – you will never look back! In contrast, eating nutrient poor, calorie dense, dead and hard to digest food that starves your body of life force inherent in whole, uncooked, unprocessed food is flab, fatigue and disease.

Benefits

Enhance digestion

Raw food is high in enzymes, digests easily and passes through the digestive tract in less than half the time that cooked food does. As a result, you will no longer have that bloated and tired feeling after a meal that you get from cooked food. You will rarely experience constipation or indigestion and have regular bowel movements.

Boost metabolism

With raw foods, the body’s energy goes into feeding every cell rather than getting rid of toxins, thereby boosting metabolism. A raw food diet also balances blood sugar levels making it ideal for managing diabetes.

Strengthen immune system

Eating raw living foods releases toxins from your body. This lightens the load on your immune system to rid the body of unwanted foreign invaders. As a result the body can focus on destroying viruses and bacteria.

Control weight

With a raw living foods lifestyle most people find that they can eat as much as they want and maintain their ideal weight and cravings disappear. Cravings are usually the result of the body searching for nutrients it is just not getting.

Balance pH

Fruit and vegetables are the most alkalising of foods and ideally, we want our body to be slightly alkaline as this reflects the pH level of the blood. Disease cannot survive in an alkaline environment, but thrives in today’s processed acidic environment which encourages growth of disease.

Enhance oxygenation

When you eat green you flood your body with life sustaining oxygen.  Processed foods in contrast contain no oxygen.

Boost energy

Eating a raw living food diet gives you a light, energized feeling and also relieves your pancreas from having to crank out enzymes.

Anti-Aging

Eating raw is one of the best things you can do to keep your body young and vibrant.

  • Vibrant youthful skin
  • More youthful looking facial appearance
  • Greater than average fitness
  • Clear bright eyes
  • Stronger, thicker hair
  • Enhanced eyesight, hearing and tactile sensitivity
  • Healthier teeth and mouth
  • More functional cardiovascular system
  • Stronger bones
  • Better body tone
  • Improved sexual function and related hormones

Stabilise moods

Food is a drug. Living food stabilises your mood so you feel more upbeat and stable. Processed food, particularly white sugar, makes you feel anxious, tired and even depressed.

Enhanced mental focus

You will experience clearer thinking, focus and concentration without feeling tired. Nor will you experience brain fog from overloading your body with sugar.

Is this for me?
