Imagine my shock when reading on the 14th July 2008 the New Zealand Herald, NZ’s premier newspaper page A4, in 'Community Action' the heading is Health Message getting through.
Church ministers preaching a different sort of message have led to thousands of parishioners changing their old habits – and becoming healthier.
Sound good doesn't it? Then we get to the bit that says instead of buying a packet of chips (potato crisps) and a can of Coke, get a loaf of bread and some milk.
Really what century are we in … and what planet are we on?
Have we been so lost that we have become consumers consuming ourselves?
Yes ,it is an improvement, but how could we have slipped so far down the ladder that we need reminding what is food and what isn't.
Anyone who has any idea of what is health, especially holistic health, will, know that milk, especially homogenised has been basically destroyed, as if it has been imploded - that its constituency has been shattered.
New information is saying that even pasteurised milk lacks enzymes and many other key ingredients. I was lucky when I was young Dad used to bring a stainless steel bucket of milk direct from the cowshed and Mum poured it into a huge bowl, left it in the fridge for the cream to rise to the top, then skim it off, so we had plenty of real cream in the house and rich raw milk. This is what it is supposed to be.
As for bread, ask any naturopath what there is in (white) bread and they will say basically NOTHING, all the goodness has been refined out of it including all the vitamins and most minerals. It is so devoid of goodness, that bakers are now baking vitamins back into the bread, because they know it’s empty of healthy ingredients.
The message has been out for years and years in the holistic, traditional, alternative health fraternity that white flour is white death, basically’ in the same category as white sugar, white salt, white rice that like all the 'whites’ including heroin and cocaine, have all had the life force sucked out of them.
Salt you say? Yes common sea salt has been bleached of all its many beneficial minerals, (replace with Celtic, & Himalayan salt) and ordinary table until very recently had aluminum anti caking agents included that acts as a free flow agent and was (is) linked to Alzheimer's disease, but not 100% proved … but maybe. Maybe not …
Kelp can be added to the above two salts too.
And when it comes to oils, only extra virgin, preferably organic, don’t cook with olive oil, only coconut oil/fat, maybe avocado or fry in butter, but only if you really liked fried food. A plate of fried food, hash
browns, etc is in fact a plate of free radicals, especially when cooked in cheap supermarket oils.
Drink Udo's oil, if not, top shelf cod liver oil from a dark refridgerated bottle, not capsules, the quality is not up to it.
If we are unable to break free of our coma at this level, it will be near on impossibly to awaken to what it is like to be a human being …
As for microwave ovens, none of my friends have one. Not one qualified Naturopath will have one either. The Russians banned them back in 1978, WHY?
Of all the times for humanity to remember who they are .... this time is now … not for expedients sake to slide into the shadows, when we are here to shine!
