Nourishing the Body
The body is in a continual process of tearing down and building up, following its master plan. It needs to be supplied with the required nutrients, at the proper time, in order for these processes to be accomplished successfully, so that cells can be replicated without error, and replaced properly if damaged or worn out.
The body has certain daily requirements that need to be met in order to avoid problems, which develop slowly over a long period of time. In this era of great affluence, it is shocking to realize that many of our citizens are badly malnourished. This is due to the pressures of our hectic daily lives, the availability of cheap, nutrient-poor fast foods loaded with low-quality fats, and the fading of the culinary arts in the home, due to a perceived lack of time.
Nutrition enables the body to be supplied with substances necessary for growth, maintenance and replacement of cells, and the generation of energy. In the course of this, the digestive process transforms substances foreign to the body into the body’s own.
The edibility of food depends less on the food itself than on the body’s ability to digest, including the power to separate, combine and absorb, and the power to synthesize.
There is no one food that will provide perfect nutrition for everyone. Each person must determine what foods are compatible with their digestive systems by listening to the signals the body sends. The most important foods contain an abundance of enzymes and are eaten raw to maintain their viability.
The human organism is in reality a symbiotic organism, with over 400 varieties of bacterial flora residing in the gut. Two of these varieties are critical to digestion – lactobacillus Acidophilus and bifid bacterium Bifidus. It is necessary to maintain a thriving colony of these bacteria, by ingesting yogurt and supplements when necessary, in order to maintain proper absorption. Antibiotics kill both kinds of beneficial bacteria, leading to malabsorption, malnutrition and disease.
