(This is the first section of “Heal from the Inside Out”)
We are all sorely lacking enzymes. The food we have eaten our entire lives has been cooked and devitalized. Contrary to popular belief, food does not give us energy. Food nourishes the physical body, but actually robs the essential life energy from the core of our body to help in the process of digestion. When enzyme rich, predigested foods are introduced, the digestive system gets rebuilt. As this happens, the core or life force energy remains vital, encouraging healing and balance. Any symptomology the body is suffering will respond to enzyme rich, predigested nourishment. The deficiency that has created these symptoms will turn into sufficiency, and our energy will be expressed in Vibrant Health.
Metabolic enzymes ~ We are given a predetermined amount of metabolic enzymes at birth. Enzymes are catalysts for every function in the body including digestion and assimilation. The storehouse of metabolic enzymes is exhausted by a diet of devitalized, non-enzyme rich foods. The body uses these precious enzymes to digest food rather than for supporting functions in the organs like the liver, spleen and pancreas. Disease begins as a result.
Food Enzymes ~ Come packaged by nature in the foods we eat. Natural food enzymes are absolutely necessary to ingest on a per meal basis and are the most significant contribution to our nutritional well being.
So, eating can be looked upon as a science when we understand about enzymes. We have all been given this incredible human body/mind to conduct research in. Become the best researcher you can be, find out what foods really work for you, and live a productive, healthy life free of disease and symptomology. May your Creative Power within be carried to deeper and higher levels!
The Cleansing and Detoxification Program in “Heal from the Inside Out” supports healing of the entire digestive system and restores the
Body’s Natural Immune Function. In thousands of documented
cases, programs like this have been credited with helping people
get well and stay well by correcting the underlying lifestyle
habits that caused their diseases.
True healing happens from the inside out. In our journey to wellness, there are many aspects to consider. Having an understanding of how illness came to reside in our body is just as important as diet, exercise, coping skills and rest. What deep, unconscious patterns are manifesting in the physical body as blockages and disease and how do we reverse their effects? Illness can be a teacher rather than a mysterious assault. From an inner spiritual perspective, as we seek deeper love and harmony, it is wise to hold regard for the body, which supports this quest for light and to rebalance one’s sensitivity to Nature’s way.
Due to our lack of knowledge, particularly with respect to the inner physical ecology; digestion, assimilation and elimination, our immune system can become seriously compromised. As our systems weaken and become sluggish, the body accumulates toxic waste from undigested food and stress. This is an invitation to scavengers, parasites, yeast infections; conditions that further destroy internal ecological balance.
The greatest 20th century Naturopaths and Nature Cure Physicians speak of this undigested waste as “morbid matter”, the cause of all disease in the human body. The following pages describe nourishment and positive actions to be taken as a means of clearing morbid matter, strengthening the immune system and helping the body rebuild.
“Heal from the Inside Out” is written in response to the urgency of widespread health crisis in an age of extreme pollution. The Human Body is Self Healing when given the simple, natural support it needs.
“Without proper diet, medicine is of no use. And with proper diet, medicine is of no need.”
Ancient Ayurvedic Proverb
Healing is very simple. The first premise is The Body Is Self Healing and we all heal in the same way, from the inside out. Ultimately it is love that serves as the remedy for all ills. It is the vital force of love, which guides us to our healing. This love resides deep within us and is more difficult to access when the physical body is fighting so hard to detoxify and cleanse, which it does naturally 24 hours per day.
The second premise is, in order to host any disease, the body must be holding onto the toxic byproducts of incomplete digestion of food and LIFE EXPERIENCES. There is mental/emotional “Morbid Matter” as well as physical toxicity. Both must be eliminated through open channels to prevent deeper degeneration and irreversible loss of the ability to recover.
This book is organized as a step-by-step guide to regaining, or perhaps creating for the first time, a vibrant state of health. Support and encouragement for freeing one’s self from all mental and physical addictions, despair and downward spirals to chronic and degenerative disease are outlined.
A sincere commitment to change is the only prerequisite. Most of us get prodded into finally doing something about our health by the pain of remaining the same. The first step is to cleanse the body then is followed by establishing a good foundation in eating habits. Through these simple steps, the mind and body release Morbid Matter and become cooperative in the healing process.
Heal From The Inside Out incorporates many self-healing tools and outlines what is commonly referred to as a “sensible diet. “Understanding diet supports all other healing efforts, and without it, all other efforts lose ground and/or become ineffective. Changing diet is essential to changing our quality of life and well being.
The First Premise
The Human Body Is Self Healing. It is always seeking balance, physically, emotionally and mentally. If we live within the natural law, disease, as we know it, cannot exist.
The Following is an Overview of this Natural Law
The inner life of our body is like that of soil, or terrain. If this soil is built up properly, viruses, bacteria, parasites or worms will not be able to survive. They are, by natural law, attracted to conditions of decay and degeneration. It is their job to scavenge. Therefore, if we attend to the inner ecosystem, build it up with proper nutrients and avoid those substances that encourage the presence of critters, health will build. Just as the farmer builds up his fields of organic soil year after year, yielding bountiful and nourishing crops, we too shall have a bountiful yield of lasting radiant health.
As we change our diet to an organic, raw, living foods diet, two wonderful things happen. The first is, we detoxify. A miraculous cleansing process begins in the cells of our body. They become oxygenated and literally pour stored toxins out through their walls. The second thing that happens is, the walls of the small and large intestines slough off old, encrusted matter that has accumulated. Proper absorption and assimilation of nutrients to the cells increases and vibrant health is restored.
Deepak Chopra, in his book “Perfect Digestion”, quotes an ancient Ayurvedic proverb, “Without proper diet, medicine is of no use, and with proper diet, medicine is of no need”. He also says the human body manufactures every pharmaceutical, in the proper amounts and sends them to the targeted organs at precisely the right time.
To achieve this state of harmony, all food we put into our body must be of the highest quality and be abundant in living enzymes. Enzymes are the building blocks of health!
“We Are What We Eat”
Dr. Ann Wigmore, one of the great pioneers in the field of health and nutrition says, “Statistics now begin to reveal that our country has a terrible problem with vitamin and enzyme deficiency. Folks are affected with eye problems, dizziness from fatigue, constipation, allergies, muscle cramps, bone deterioration and loss of memory. Other deficiency syndromes include addictions to drugs and alcohol and heart, liver, kidney and lung problems. The key is Easy-To-Digest nourishment for replacing the deficiencies and strengthening the immune system with enzymes.”
