Eating For Beauty

Question: “What do you mean by beauty?”
Answer: “Perfection of rhythm, balanced perfection of rhythm.
Everything in Nature is expressed by rhythmic waves of light.
Every thought and action is a light-wave of thought and action.” Walter Russell, artist, architect, author, philosopher

Beauty as an ideal in which we strive to achieve our best expression of our physical, spiritual and emotional being using the power of diet, exercise and the mind.  David Wolfe in his book Eating for Beauty does a great job explaining the value of a raw food diet.  For me the kirlian photography of raw food versus slightly steamed foods shows the effect of heat on the energy/aliveness of the food.  Kirlian photographs capture the electromagnetic radiation patterns emitted by objects across a wide spectrum of electromagnetic energy. These light patterns are beyond what is visible to the naked eye.

Eating is one of the major addictions.  We associate food with pleasure and comfort.  If we can maintain excellent eating habits, then we have truly achieved something extraordinary.  It is about making a decision to add nourishment to our association with food.  We know more about what the body requires today than ever before to maintain health and beauty.    Ideally to let our body let us know what is best and not to try to use discipline, denial and diets that cannot be maintained.

My body does not do well with gluten or dairy (even though I love them) but as I have experienced improved health without it over time I am naturally choosing  foods that work for me.

“There is absolutely no nutrient, no protein, no vitamin, no mineral, that we know of, that can’t be obtained from plant-based foods.”  Michael Klaper, M.D., author, lecturer.

“People often debate with each other about humans being, frugivores, carnivores, omnivores, herbivores, etc.  The truth is that human beings will eat anything.

“What becomes fascinating is that when one stops eating “anything” that is when a startling realization occurs — the realization that what we eat deeply and radically affects the way we think, feel, and behave.  When one introduces discernment into one’s food choices, a physical and spiritual transformation begins to take place.”  David Wolfe

The most unique aspect of raw food is its enzyme content.  Enzymes are destroyed when food is heated over 120 degrees Fahrenheit.  Enzymes can only be found in raw foods or foods dehydrated at low temperatures.  Enzymes are catalysts.  On a physical level, enzymes help to overcome digestive lethargy.  Most nutritionists now agree, that maintaining a balance of acidity and alkalinity in our bodily tissues is one of the primary roles of nutrition.  This balance of acidity to alkalinity is usually referred to as pH (per hydrogen).

Acidity is the underlying cause of all the ailments that mar beauty.  Acidity creates inflammation and contraction of the tissues.  An imbalance can be corrected by eating foods that are more alkaline than acidic and to drink alkaline water.  For years I worked to balance my acidic pH with my diet without success.   I purchased a water ionizer from Tyent .  I can increase the alkalinity of my tap water to 9.5 and I now test a neutral pH and have eliminated the need for acid reflux medication.
