“I Eat Healthy” or Do I?
One common refrain I often hear from my patients is that "I eat healthy." And we all want to believe that we are doing the very best for our bodies. But have we ever stopped to assess what this statement means?
If healthy means eating lots of fruits and vegetables, that might be healthy But some would contend that eating raw vegetables would be even more nutritious Perhaps eating less meat would be considered healthy. Eating fast food might not be considered healthy Or avoiding refined sugar would be healthy Or I only eat organic But all of these statements miss a very important point
Does "I Eat Healthy" Have Any Real Meaning?
Whether corn is organic, the vegetable is raw, the meat is buffalo or the fast food is nutritious, the food to be healthy must resonate with our physiology So corn, even if organic, if it doesn't resonate with my physiology(and for me it doesn't) then I shouldn't be eating it
Currently there is no nutritional system that has guidelines grounded in a science that globally addresses the nutritional needs of the human physiology And we will not find it in our present nutritional system followed by the medical matter field healing system
The reason for this is actually quite simple Our matter field nutritional information is not a system, but rather a collection of data about the foods we ingest The guidelines come from a level where a quantitative assessment of foods consumed is paramount
Matter Science Nutrition Misses What's Good For YOU
Allow me to explain We know a lot about broccoli, the number of calories per gram, the number of carbohydrates per gram, the vitamin and mineral content but this quantitative analysis cannot tell me if broccoli resonates with MY physiology I just know a lot about broccoli
From an energetic perspective I understand foods from a qualitative viewpoint So what is healthy for me may not be so healthy for you from an energetic perspective I could use banana once or twice a week but for another individual, banana should never be consumed because it would produce imbalance I shouldn't eat tomatoes or corn but some other friend, she could use them in moderation So you see it is the qualitative character of the food that makes it relatively good or not so good for us This is the value of the energy approach to nutrition And it's a great gift that the energy sciences have given us because it gives us direction for our nutrition and removes all the confusion about nutrition
Whether it's the Paleo diet, the blood diet, or whatever, there's no system of nutrition that gives you how to be healthy from a GIT standpoint other than the energy science approach to nutrition
When we begin eating foods that resonate with our physiologies then we will be able to say, "I eat healthy." The energy tradition of Ayurveda can give us these much needed guidelines
The explanation of this rich energy science is explored in my new book Foods Heal.
