You've heard the saying “you are what you eat”. This's not a new idea. It was Hippocrates back in the 5th century BC who first made this observation about nutrition.
Many people now dismiss this idea as just another saying, an old wives tale.
But there's a lot of truth in it.
What you eat has a huge impact on your well-being and moreover a huge impact on how your body combats the effects of electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure.
EMFs – The Environmental Toxin
EMFs are an environmental toxin. They are an invisible attacker on your body’s natural defenses.
Countless studies, stretching back more than 30 years, show that EMF exposures affect the functioning of our brains. There's no question about it.
Surrounding your brain is the blood brain barrier (BBB). The BBB is made up of a network of vessels that form a structural and chemical barrier around your brain. The role of the BBB is to filter your blood supply. To keep toxins out of your brain and let nutrients in.
The studies tell us that EMFs affect this BBB permeability. The BBB can no longer do its job properly. The toxins leak into your brain. The effect may be a simple headache or much worse.
So it makes sense to ensure that your blood is low in toxins. What's the primary determinant of the level of toxins in your blood? The quality of your food. What goes on your plate.
The video below extols the virtues of raw foods (It’s a fun video which talks about raw foods helping you to be more “sexy” and “fit” these are not the most important arguments for me!!).
Here is the transcript:
Is Your Body Starving Of Nutrients?
“We are living in the unhealthiest culture in the history of humankind. People are getting cancer and dying early while other cultures in the world are living well past a hundred. 3 billion baby boomers are looking in the mirror and freaking out. They are getting wrinkles, losing hair, gaining weight, and realizing that dieting pills, lotions, plastic surgery and injections do not work. Your body is starving for nutrients and the foods that we have nowadays make you keep eating and keep eating and keep eating and are void of all nutrients, but what doctor is going to write malnutrition on the death certificate?
Nevertheless, you can turn your life around right now, never get sick, again lose weight, regain our youth and become sexier than you have ever been in our life. The answer to this transformation is simpler than you think. People are doing it and one by one they are beginning to see a change in their well being.”
Less “Civilised” Cultures Live Longer
“The most primitive people on earth are outliving us by up to 50 years. They have no medical plans, no pills, no X-lays, no electricity, no freezers, no stores and yet they are 100 years old and still having sex, you tell me who is better off! You can go ahead and sit there in your huge SUV, sucking on sugar and cholesterol wondering why your hair is falling out or whine about how cellulite just showed up for no reason in your body. Come on people; take some responsibility in your life. Your body is a living organism and it therefore needs living food to survive and do the job that it's meant to do. Once you start eating raw food, you become more beautiful, sexier, thinner and definitely have more energy, tons of energy.
Do We Need To Eat Meat?
“Eating raw food is easy: it is so easy. This is no rocket science; there is no deep profound thing you have to know. Everybody always asks about the relationship between meat, protein, strength and muscle. The biggest and most powerful animals on the planet don't eat meat. Some of the top professional body builders don't eat meat. It is a fact that there is more usable protein in greens. We have all been brainwashed, we don't need to eat meat.
Food Heals Your Body
“Your body absorbs what you eat and uses it to build new cells. Your body makes millions of new cells every hour. The pizza you eat becomes part of you and those cells are not going to function properly. Why do you think you are always right on the edge of getting sick? Why do you think you are so tired all the time and your concentration is so muddy? If all the scientists in the world got together they could not make an apple, they cannot take hydrogen, oxygen and carbon and make a single living cell but your body can. The only thing that can truly heal your body is what you eat. It is all about food as medicine, not just food for the sake of food.
You maybe have inherited a body that isn’t so hot, so do a lot of people out there who take old junk cars and turn them into hot rods and win awards at car shows. They didn’t do it by just giving the old junk car a paint job. They had to strip it down to the bare chassis, sand blast all the rust away and start over from bare bones. That is what you need to do with yourself. If you want to be sexy, it is time to start to start over and I mean really start over.
While on a raw foods diet, you eat things that grow on the planet. I am talking about nourishment that can get you through and entire day just having a handful of something. You don't know you are not healthy until you really get healthy. Make this change in your life, you can change right now and give your body what it needs and watch the miracle start to happen by going on a raw food diet. Take the next step and don’t let anybody ever tell you are too old for anything.”
Raw Food And EMFs
Eating a raw food diet can be highly beneficial. It's not my own personal nutrition choice because I prefer a more reasonable, less severe approach. Introducing raw foods, preferably organically grown and local, into your existing diet can be a very effective way of helping your body fight the effects of EMFs.
But if you want to effectively deal with your EMF exposures, you need to do more than eat raw foods. A rounded holistic approach to EMF protection is required. First and foremost you need to minimize your EMF exposures and a good place to start is with the EMFs in your home.
