Creative Health Institutes Outlook On Raw Living Foods

The Raw living food diets primary foundation is made-up of organic plant-based based sprouted food which contains the highest levels of bio-available nutrients known to mankind.  Raw living foods serve as the main holistic modality for naturopathic counselors, nutritionist and doctors who are focusing on preventing sickness and chronic diseases.  The raw living food diet and healing philosophies are based on the principle that cooking foods change their molecular structure destroying enzymes, phytonutrients, vitamins, proteins and minerals that are beneficial to the body.  Following are some of the major benefits associated with this diet.

Health Are Some Of The Benefits Creative Health Institute Believes To Be Associated The Raw Living Food Diet.

  • Balances blood sugar and alleviates the symptoms of diabetes
  • Reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases
  • Lower bad cholesterol and increases good cholesterol
  • Help people with fibromyalgia and associated diseases
  • Helps to keep the body’s systems operating at the optimum level
  • Help to overcome addictive behaviors including smoking
  • Promote weight loss or weight gain as necessary
  • Help boost the metabolism and stops obesity
  • Prevents and reduces high blood pressure
  • Decreased the risk of many types of cancers and may even play a part in the healing process
  • Helps keep inflammation under control and reduces it or removes it completely
  • Alleviates the symptoms rheumatoid arthritis and other joint and bone issues

This list is just a start… Think about how you have benefited from a raw living food diet and list the benefits you have received.

Wishing everyone the greatest weekend ever and don’t forget to drink a shot of wheatgrass everyday.

How Does Wheatgrass Work?

Many of you have asked for more information on the components of wheatgrass and how it works. This is a quick overview of what we discussed in our  wheatgrass familiarization class. I hope these charts will help you to better understand the wonder of wheatgrass and have a better knowledge of how and why it works to heal, balance and restore our bodies. 

Love and blessings,

Bobby

WHAT IS WHEATGRASS?

  • Wheatgrass is actually a vegetable not a grain. It is considered a cereal grass along with barley, alfalfa, etc.
  • The grass is cut and harvested when it is approximately seven inches tall.
  • One of the numerous good things about wheatgrass is that it does not contain the gluten that is in the grain.

Wheatgrass is a complete food made up of:

  • 12.0%    water
  • 70.0%    chlorophyll bonded carbohydrates
  • 12.0%    protein
  •  2.0%     fat
  •  1.8%     minerals
  •  2.2%     crude fiber

In addition, it contains an impressive array of trace minerals, vitamins, amino acids (all eight essential ones), and enzymes.

MAIN DIFFERENCE IN WHEATGRASS AND OUR BLOOD

Chlorophyll is the blood of plants. Its makeup is almost ODidentical to that of hemoglobin in human blood. The only difference is that chlorophyll has magnesium as its central atom. The central atom of hemoglobin ( BLOOD)  is iron. 

Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Hans Fischer while doing research on red blood cells, discovered that chlorophyll is remarkably similar to human blood on the molecular level. When wheatgrass juice is taken internally, its chlorophyll is rapidly assimilated into the bloodstream due to its resemblance to hemoglobin. It enters the red blood cells and works to heal tissues, purify the liver, balance blood sugar, and flush out toxins. Chlorophyll stimulates the production of red blood cells in hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to the cells. Chlorophyll often returns red blood cell counts to normal within four to five days. 

Chlorophyll / Oxygen / Blood

Otto Warburg, a German biochemist, won a Nobel Prize for his study that revealed that cancer cells cannot exist in the presence of oxygen. The enzymes, amino acids, and chlorophyll in wheatgrass juice contain antibacterial compounds that are especially good at destroying anaerobic bacteria that thrive in oxygen-poor blood and tissue.

Chlorophyll increases the function of the heart and affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus, and lungs. It helps in the stimulation and regeneration of the liver – the main organ of detoxification in the body.

   

The main difference between wheatgrass, and our blood:

 
     Blood  Central Atom  
   Plants  Chlorophyll  Magnesium  
   Humans  Hemoglobin  Iron  
 Major Components of Wheatgrass Utilized by the Human Body
 WATER  Involved with nearly all body processes
CARBOHYDRATES  Supply fuel
PROTEINS  Build and repair tissue
 FAT  Supplies energy
 MINERALS  Blood building and waste removal
 FIBER  Helps with good elimination
 CHLOROPHYLL  Protects / heals/ cleans/ builds blood / oxygenates (SUN ENERGY)
 ENZYMES  Workers who act as catalysts in many processes including digestion
 AMINO ACIDS  Building materials
 VITAMINS  Growth and development of cells
             

 

  Energizer  

How Does Wheatgrass Work

  • It is easily absorbed by the blood stream.
  • Less digestive work for the body means more energy and less sleep is required.
  • You will experience clarity of thought due to more oxygen reaching the brain.
 Appetite Depressant
  •  Wheatgrass is a complete food. As a result the appestat in the brain naturally shuts down the appetite.
 Digestive Aid
  •  Wheatgrass enzymes act as catalysts in the digestion of food and add valuable nutrients that are quickly absorbed into the blood stream.
 Fiber
  •  Wheatgrass provides fiber and chlorophyll, which helps to achieve and maintain colon health and regularity. We use the juice for rapid detoxification and rejuvenation.
 Minerals and Vitamins
  •  Wheatgrass has approximately 92 of the 102 known minerals found in the soil.
  • Wheatgrass, has thirteen essential vitamins and minerals, in addition to dozens of trace elements and enzymes.

How To Peserve Food & Enzymes From Your Summer Garden…

Its nearing the end of summer in the northern hemisphere and it time to store our fruits, vegetables and berries which we have collected from our summer gardens. What we are going to share with you will not necessarily prove popular with some in the raw food community, but we believe in good science an therefore we have to speak out, as the health of 0ur family and friends is much more important to us than raw food dogma.

We therefore  suggest freezing as much locally grown organic raw vegetables, fruits and berries as possible, unless you have access t this level of fresh living  nutrition year around.

The freezing process will cause the enzymes to become inactive thereby preserving the nutritional values. Testing shows there will be a reduction in the enzymatic action of some of the enzymes but the freezing will not denature all the enzymes, like cooking does.  Scientist estimate only 10%-30%. of the enzymes are denatured in the freezing process.produce hauling  truck We feel you will be much better off eating fresh, frozen, organically grown produce, rather than having to purchase food that has not been left to ripen on the vine . The grocery stores are also selling food which has traveled across the country, or has been flown in from halfway around the world, so the food source is sometimes unknown and with the loss of water volume much of the vitamins and phyto-nutrients have been reduced.

Once fruits, vegetables or berries are cut from the vine ,their nutrient source, they begin to immediately looses nutrients. A piece of produce two weeks enzyme deathold may have lost 50% of its nutritional value.

Our bodies need real food that is nutritionally dense, whether raw and untouched or frozen. The choice is your and we honor your choices.prehistoric man

Cooking food was the way early man preserved it. There was no refrigeration or dehydration. To keep there food from rotting they had to stop the enzymatic processes and that’s why when we cook our food the enzymes begin to decrease. This decrease starts between 104 and 106 degrees and by the time the temperature reaches 120 degrees all the enzymes are destroyed.

Cooking food also diminishes the oxygen levels, destroying the foods ability to bring life giving oxygen to our cells.  An easy way to remember the best temperature to cook you foods is “105 stay alive”.

If you are in the area we would love you to stop by and visit the garden here at Creative Health Institute. Dr. Ann Wigmore loved the gardens here at the institute and we have many unpublished pictures of her in the garden and on the grounds picking more than 30 varieties of wild edibles.

Remember raw food is amazing and nutritious, but raw living food is what you need to be eating to experience the highest level of health.Wishing you  healthiest life ever.

Creative Health Institutes Take On Raw Living Food And The Great Protein Myth

 Creative Health Institute
Debunks
 “The Protein Myth”

 

Decreasing The Amount Of Meat You Eat Could Save Your Life
No Meat
The Raw Living Food Lifestyle Provides The Best Source Of Protein On The Planet! 
The first question most students ask upon embarking on our program steeped in the traditons of Ann Wigmore’s Raw Living Foods Lifestyle is; where do we get our protein? This is a good question, so on  our first evening together we address their question by going through the list of protein rich fruits, vegetables, seed, nuts and sprouts they will be eating during their stay at the institute. Upon seeing the list of fruits, vegetable, seed, nuts and sprouts and the amount of protein they will be consuming on a daily basis there usually is a resounding WOW! They learn that by embracing this lifestyle they will not only get enough protein, they will be getting the vitamins, minerals, phyto-nutrients, live enzymes and the right combination of amino acids combined to form protein which is perfectly designed for their body’s. We’ve been brainwashed by the meat, dairy and supplement companies into thinking we need one gram of protein per pound of bodyweight, but science has NEVER shown that humans need that level of protein.  The truth is most foods have some combination of protein, carbohydrates and fat -and vegetables contain all three macro-nutrients!  The World Health Organization (W.H.O) has stated we need to consume a minimum of 10% of your daily caloric intake from protein to be healthy and build lean muscle mass. If you are eating a 2,000-calorie diet, 10% of your diet should be made up of protein, which would be 200 calories. Each gram of protein has 4 calories, so that calculates out to 50 grams of protein per day.  Getting this level of protein is easy to do if you are practicing the Living Foods Lifestyle.
Wishing all of you the best life ever.
