Diet & Detox

Diet & Detox

Food is your best medicine i.e. if you do not treat food as medicine, you will soon start consuming medicine as food. Besides stress, pollution, Genetics, Sedentary lifestyles & unhealthy food habbits, most of the chronic illnesses manifest in our body due to prolonged imbalance in acidic and alkaline diet. The appropriate ratio is 70% alkaline food & 30% Acidic food but in modern times it is just the opposite.

It is common knowledge that non-vegetarians suffer more than vegetarians from acidity. This chart also proves that point since you can see that all meats are acidic. From this chart, you will also begin to see why pure vegetarians too suffer from acidity and all the illnesses caused by acidity. Though vegetarians think that vegetables will keep them alkaline, what they fail to understand is that they counter the alkalinity of vegetables by firstly, using too many spices and secondly, by eating too much of acidifying grains, lentils and beans as part of their staple diet.

Natural Medicines

It is unfortunate that modern medicine does not yet have a proper understanding of the human body and even with all its microscopic tools put together, it still cannot fix the human body completely. You are bound to fail when you use limited understanding, limiting tools and unsuitable substances, like inorganic chemical medicines, to cure an organism as complex and as organic as the human body. In contrast, natural therapies use natural, organic substances that are found in nature. Many of these substances have been a part of our regular diets for thousands of years and their therapeutic properties are well known. They do not cause any side effects, because they have been designed by nature to work with the human body, not against it. Natural therapies stimulate the body‟s internal systems to cleanse it and cure the root causes of chronic ailments. They follow the same laws of nature that the human body also follows and that is precisely why they work so perfectly well with it.

The fact is that every food on this planet has got some great nutrients in it. All we need to do is, have a good amount of rotation in our foods to get all these nutrients. If you are not really aware of the amazing nutrition in some of our most common foods have, please click the name of each food or herb on the right. The use of these foods are also detailed in the ancient Indian Ayurvedic system, the Traditional Chinese Medicine system and many other traditional systems of organic medicine.
