The enzymes in the saliva of young adults was 30 times stronger than in persons over the age of 69. Without the proper enzymes to break down our foods, we begin to accumulate undigested materials in our system. This leads to weight gain, inflammation, stagnation, digestive distress, and fatigue. The saliva of a raw-food eater contains far less enzymes than that of a person who eats cooked food. This is because raw-foods contain enzymes, and salivary enzymes are not as necessary for digestion. Our enzyme reserves correlate to our vitality. Our enzymes and vitality are drained by eating cooked food.
Enzymes found in raw-foods are codes. They tell the food where to go in our bodies. For example, the enzyme erepsin in cucumbers is targeted toward breaking down excessive protein in the kidneys. Therefore, we find that cucumbers are attracted to the kidneys and are excellent for kidney health.
If cooked food is eaten, the body has to re-identify the food, recode it with enzymes, and attempt to deliver it to the proper tissues and organs. This process takes energy and robs vitality. As our vitality decreases, cooked food drains away more and more energy, creating more digestive confusion. As a result, cooked food is often incompletely digested and not properly delivered to the proper tissue site.
Enzymes are not just found in raw-food. They are also found in every cell of your body. Every cell throughout the body has the potential to be a highly-charged battery containing over 4,000 enzymes Many people have not activated each of these 4,000 enzymes because they do not have enough major and trace minerals in their diet. Minerals, when obtained through their whole raw-food complexes, activate our cellular, metabolic enzyme system. Trace elements (minerals) are essential to the proper functioning of enzymes. Minerals give longevity to enzymes. The goal is to increase the minerals and nutrition within each cell so as to activate every enzyme, thus increasing the electromagnetic charge in each cell, causing every cell to resonate in harmony.
At the cellular level, this is truly the picture of perfect health.
Have you ever wondered why humans are the only creatures on the Earth who cook their food?
Prometheus - "the contriver" - stole fire from Zeus. The Greek poet Hesiod says that before the time of Prometheus, humankind was exempt from suffering and enjoyed a vigorous youth; and when death did arrive, it was without pain and the eyes were gently closed as in sleep. There is some facet of fire that shifted humanity's state of paradise. I invite you to discover that the shift away from paradise was influenced by cooking. Cooking food, upon close evaluation, appears to contain a core error
