|Sujet: raw diet good for jet lag, humidity & heat tolerance and insect repellent? Mer 8 Juil - 15:05|| |
When I went back to Indiana after being a raw foodist, I noticed something strange: Jet lag never lasted more than one day. In my 20s, I would go there and stay up watching TV hours after everyone went to bed, since my body was telling me that it was 3 hours earlier. This would last the entire duration of the one or two-week visit. But after going raw, the body would be on track with the local time within 24 hours! I would also wake up at the local time of 8 AM instead of hours later, such as 10 or 11 AM.
Another interesting thing, when I would go to Indiana or visit friends in Florida, I noticed the heat and humidity just didn't bother me like it did even when I was a teenager! I felt comfortable taking walks at midday even though it was 90 F and I felt at times that I could have been in Arizona, because I barely noticed the humidity!
Furthermore, when family and friends would get geared up with insect repellant, I didn't bother (feeling that the toxicity of the repellant outweighed the nuisance of being bit.) To my surprise, bugs didn't bite me. This has led me to suspect that on a natural nontoxic diet, maybe we emit natural insecticides just like plants do. If you grow plants organically without pesticides, and give them mineral-rich soil, they do not need toxic sprays since they emit their own natural defenses against bugs.
