"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame and in the cause of and prevention of disease." - Thomas A. Edison
My observation is that what we eat and drink is directly responsible for how we think and feel; it also affects our personal relationship to our Creator. Many times people don’t understand how the metabolism is affected by frequent toxic reactions of food that is poorly digested, perhaps due to overeating, poor combinations, and unnatural mixtures of perfectly good food. The symptoms of the diseases that bring on aging and death are only an indication that the systems of our body are not standing up to the abuses of our daily habits. The most irregular and daily habit is that of eating.
The all-American/ Asian/ Indonesion/ Malaysian........and all the other Cultures not mentioned, have access to a diet of hamburgers, hot dogs, potato chips, ice cream, and soda pop, can hardly be labeled "food," and creates acid residues which are responsible for all kinds of disease.
We should eat to enhance our alkaline reserve, which would include about 50% raw foods—combined simply with other prepared foods that can be easily digested.Even if not one year was added to our lives, the rewards of living when eating because of health reasons, instead of merely for the gratification of our unnatural appetites, could be enjoyed a hundredfold more in physical, mental and spiritual attainment.
