The Organic Raw Vegan Diet: Optimal for Human Health?
The organic raw vegan diet is a clean, pure and high energy diet,
consisting mainly of fresh and uncooked fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and oils. After experimenting with meat, dairy, cooked food and many other types of diet, many people have discovered that the human body thrives on an organic raw vegan diet best of all. Why? The secret may lie in phytonutrients.
An Organic Raw Vegan Diet Means Maximum Phytonutrients
Phytonutrients (plant nutrients) are nutrients which plants develop to survive in the wild, in order to protect themselves and fend off various bacteria, fungi and other parasites. When we eat plants, we readily absorb and assimilate these phytonutrients into our body, thus gaining the same health and immune-boosting benefits as the plant once had. Some phytonutrients are so potent they can defeat cancer and promote longevity. An example is amygdalin (also known as laetrile or vitamin B17) which is found in apricot kernels. This stuff is so incredible it selectively targets cancerous cells and leaves healthy ones alone, thus doing a better job than chemotherapy in eradicating cancer.
When you eat organic (instead of conventionally grown food which is sprayed with pesticides and herbicides), you ensure you are getting the highest quality of food that has been unadulterated with poison (pesticides) and is non-GMO (not a Genetically Modified Organism). When you eat raw, you consume the food in its highest state, where it has the most energy, prana or chi – call it whatever you like. Interestingly, Western science has begun to catch onto this and prove this through Kirlian photography, a technique which showed the energy field of a raw organic piece of fruit as being much stronger than either a conventional or cooked one. When you eat vegan, you only consume plant foods and avoid any animal foods, be it eggs, milk or meat. Although there are some benefits to animal foods, they also tend to be heavier and can produce sluggishness or slowness in the body. An organic raw diet combines all three into one health-boosting way of eating.
