Hippocrates said, "Let food be thy medicine, medicine be thy food." The kicker is not just any "food" can heal--only elements that build our body up and have a nourishing effect are able to cause self-healing and restoration. There is food that we consume that nourishes our physical body and there is food that we receive through love and positive relationships that nourishes our being on all levels. We could eat the healthiest diet ever and still become ill if we are unable to find balance within. There are "love tanks" that we need to keep full. The following categories build upon one another from a physical standpoint to a purely energetic one. The goal is to create healing from within out. From within we nourish our mind, body and spirit while externally creating a healthy environment that is conducive with our inner environment--each play an intricate role in synergizing an energetic shift in consciousness.
Live Food & Healthy Eating
The food you eat provides the source of energy needed to fuel the activity of every cell in your body. It also provides the nutrients required for physical growth and repair and enables the body to produce the variety of substances, such as hormones, enzymes, and neurotransmitters, that are essential for normal body functioning.
The use of plant remedies to build or cleanse body systems, support proper body functions, and boost the body’s own healing powers is perhaps the oldest form of nature cure. Herbalists maintain that the natural balance of compounds in plants provides a more effective means of restoring health than synthesized, single-ingredient drugs, as prescribed in orthodox modern medicine. Drugs attempt to treat the symptom--mainly suppressing its vital action--which is to let the body know that something is wrong. By suppressing symptoms we push dis-ease deeper into the body which has a detrimental effect on the vital force dismantling the body’s natural attempt to heal itself.
