Q: Why is Alkalizing Raw Food the Key to Health?

Q: Why is Alkalizing Raw Food the Key to Health?

A: Here are the basics in a nutshell, though simplified for easy understanding. A raw foodist is someone who eats 75-100% live, nutritionallydense organic uncooked and unprocessed food (and drinks pure, live water), enjoying delicious meals that optimize health by alkalizing the body. At that rate your elimination system can get rid of the toxins created when you cooked. But when you eat more cooked food you are consuming acidic toxins faster than your body can eliminate them so they back up, disrupting your body´s delicate acid/alkaline balance, a major cause of excess weight and disease. Heating food above 118 degrees F. causes the chemical changes that create acidic toxins, including the carcinogens, mutagens and free-radicals associated with diseases like diabetes, arthritis, heart disease and cancer. Cooking also destroys the live enzymes that aid in digestion and health.

Your body is actually sort of an alkaline battery, running on electrons. All life-giving chemical reactions only happen when electrons or energy flows between atoms. Cooking or processing causes food to lose electrons - the source of the energy your body needs. Things that are healthy "contribute" electrons/energy, and are called alkalizing or "reducing". Things that are unhealthy steal electrons/energy, and are called acidic or “oxidizing” (which means to burn up, rust, break down or decay). The body is designed to be alkaline, like the battery!

Two common myths are eating raw is expensive and it takes a lot of time to prepare. Nothing could be further from the truth! A raw food diet is actually one of the easiest, most convenient and most economical ways you can live! Remember, raw foodists eat mostly organic food, which is 80% to 300% more nutritionally dense - loaded with available electrons/energy. As your body learns to absorb this additional nutrition and energy you´ll be less hungry, getting more energy from what you do eat, and eat less. This ultimately can reduce your food costs, as well as your health care costs, far below what is was when you were eating empty calories filled with the acidic toxins. Raw, live food and water is the ultimate health care plan!
