NATUROPATHIC NOTES

Revealing Wholeness

“As science is not yet developed to the point of knowing all the enzymes, vitamins and many biological functions of hormones and minerals, it is safer to use foods raised, if possible, by an organic gardening process, thus obeying the laws of nature. This observation helped the human race for thousands of years before any science was developed. In this way we bring all known vitamins and enzymes, both the discovered and undiscovered ones, and especially the unknown - “life stimulating substances” - given best as fresh as possible and not damaged by refining or preserving processes, such as canned food. These contain all of the necessary substances in their proper quantity, mixture and composition, and are regulated by instinct, hunger, taste, smell, sight, and other factors.” Dr. Max Gerson

Dr. Gerson goes on to also say that one can’t ignore the necessary vitamins, minerals, and enzymes in their most natural composition and in adequate amounts for a relatively long term and remain unpunished. These minerals need to be in the tissues where they belong as carriers of electric potentials in the cells, and this is where they enable hormones, vitamins, and enzymes to function properly. This provides the body with the appropriate working power and reserves for a sound metabolism and life.

Experiments were created to produce vitamin deficiencies by removing food containing certain vitamins. Studies showed that one third could be made deficient in about 4 months, and two-thirds in 6 months. Only 5 to 6% resisted 10 months of deficient feeding. These nutritional experiments illustrated that only a small few have a complete intact reabsorption apparatus and have enough adjustment and reserve power, during an unhealthy period of their lives, to stave off disease.

The definition of junk food is more inclusive than what you may be accustomed. Junk food is that which has been processed, refined and adulterated. Processed foods are synthetic (example: margarine, shortening, in other words, hydrogenated) whereas Natural foods such as butter and coconut oil furnish needed nutrients. Refined foods such as sugar, wheat, rice have been striped of their nutrients whereas Whole foods retain their vitamin and mineral content. Adulterated foods are those containing chemical additives, flavorings, colorings, and preservatives. These chemicals are treated like estrogen in the body which puts fat on women, feminizes males, and adds fuel to heart disease and diabetes. Pure foods have not been added to or had parts extracted from them. They become the medicine and healer of the body.

After wondering why the effects of some foods did not seem to match up with what scientists would expect based on their nutritional content, they decided to look at the bigger picture. When assessing food in context, a more accurate picture emerged. They found that interactions between nutrients in food have a big influence on their overall health impact. A food’s nutritional value should not be evaluated based solely on the individual measurements of nutrients it contains; instead, it should be assessed based on the food as a whole.

The synthetic vitamin producers and sellers all claim that synthetic vitamins have the same molecular structure as the natural, and are therefore the same or at least have the same effect. They never mention that the polarity of the synthetic is opposite to the natural and has the opposite effect. Synthetic vitamins always refract light the opposite of the natural vitamin complexes. This suggests that you do not get protection from synthetic vitamins. In fact, the studies show an actual loss of protection.

Though synthetic vitamins have the same molecular structure, they are a mirror image of the natural. A mirror image? This suggests that they are identical in every detail. But a mirror image is the exact opposite of the real thing, in this case, the natural vitamins.
