Raw food is good medicine
WHYis it that despite the advances in medicine, diseases such as cancer and type 2 diabetes are on the rise?
As a result of a young family member being diagnosed with lymphoma early last year, I began to find out all I could.
At first she was determined not to have chemotherapy and this led me to look closely at natural cures which in turn led me to Kristine Matheson.
During a workshop in Monto she and husband Wayne talked about their encounters with cancer and how they’d survived.
In Kristine’s case, doctors told her to go home and get her affairs in order because there was nothing they could do.
She refused to accept this, set out to cure herself and succeeded.
Her book looks at the forgotten secret: letting food be your medicine.
While physical, emotional and spiritual areas of life all need to be addressed, food is a great place to start.
If the body is alkaline, cancer cells do not develop and neither do diabetes and many other diseases.
The list of foods high in alkalinity includes vegetables and fruits while acidic choices are processed foods and foods high in simple sugars.
Many in the medical profession place too much emphasis on curing diseases once they develop and not enough on taking steps to prevent the disease developing in the first place.
The profits of pharmaceutical companies would decline but we would all be healthier if we ate 80% raw food.
Our busy lives lead us to foods that are convenient and fast but surely our health takes priority over convenience.
