This eBook includes over 100 recipes so you can get started today! This eBook will improve YOUR LIFE! I don’t care if you are a Catholic, Orthodox, Methodist, Lutheran, Baptist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Anglican, Jehovah’s Witness, Mormon, 7th Day Adventist, Congregational or any other denomination. This eBook applies to all religions and denominations around the world and will help YOU!

WHY you may ask? Because there is only one God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; and if you believe that God created the earth, the stars, the universe and you, then he surely knows what your body needs to eat in order to live a healthy and long life. And somewhere in His spoken Word, the Bible; He must have given us some information on what to eat and not what to eat in order to live a healthy and long life while we are in these flesh bodies.

This eBook is about God and Science coming together, where God’s Word is supported by Science and not disputed like most people believe. The truth lies in God’s Word.

Avoid the noise and confusion out in the media today. The media feeds us so many lies paid for by drug companies and food companies. Get the inside scoop on how to eat healthy and live a healthy lifestyle straight from the Bible. Good health from a biblical perspective and not through man’s eyes.

Some argue that biblical dietary restrictions are silly, old fashioned and merely limit human freedoms and pleasures! Others teach that these instructions were for people living under the Old Covenant and that Christians, who are under a New Covenant, are free to eat whatever they want.

If all these diets we hear about in the media really worked then we would’ve solved our obesity problem and why are there so many diets out there? Even to this day, we still hear new authors writing books and preaching the gospel of a new diet on TV talk shows, trying to convince us that they have found the Holy Grail that is going to work on everyone if they follow their diet plan. Then after a while…You never hear from them anymore…I WONDER WHY? Maybe cause their diet plan doesn’t work?
The market realized it was a scam or a fad and simply dropped it. This happens every year beloved, stop chasing these stupid diets that deprive you of critical nutrition that your body needs. And let’s not mention the increased chance of you getting a disease through these fly by night diets!
Ya, I could sit here and write about the pros and cons of the Jenny Craig diet, Weight Watchers diet plan, low fat diet, low calorie diet, low carb diet and the Atkins diet just to name a few. But why would I waste your precious time and even more confuse you on what’s right and what is wrong? The truth about all these diets is that they all contradict themselves on different key points and elements.
NONE of them have all the real answers of how to properly fuel this body and make it work properly. They may have a certain point right but the rest is all wrong, or they may even come close having most points right but fail you on some other key points that are critical for you in avoiding disease. Hence we have confusion and no real solution to our chronic obesity problem in North America and diseases like heart disease, cancer and diabetes that kill millions each year, all caused by our bad eating habits.

Weight Loss Myths and Facts

Weight Loss Myths and Facts
By Raphael Calzadilla, BA, CPT, ACE

(If you don’t have time to read the whole thing, my favorite part of this article is where he compares muscle mass to jello: One pound of muscle may appear to be the size of baseball; one pound of fat will be three times the size and look like a squiggly bowl of JELL-O.)

It’s important to ask not only, “What is my goal,” but also, based on what I've researched on the way the human body works, “Will this work?” “Does it make sense?” and, “Is it safe?”

It doesn’t require being a biochemist or an exercise physiologist but simply acquiring a small amount of knowledge about the way the human body works. Sometimes it’s good to experiment with unorthodox methods. However, there are some things that are simply ineffective, yet people continue to believe they work.

Here is my top 10 fitness "facts" that in reality are hogwash:

1. Lifting lighter weights will make your muscles more defined and cut. FALSE!
Muscle responds to overload. If you lift heavier weight with sufficient intensity, you will create more microscopic tears in the muscle. When the muscle recuperates, it will become bigger and stronger over time.

However, your supplemental nutrition must support your training. Reduced body fat is what creates the "cut" look, not high (15 or more) reps. Reduced body fat is a result of efficient weight training, proper amounts of cardiovascular exercise and nutrition that places you in somewhat of a calorie deficit. That’s how you get defined.

2. A lot of cardio is the most efficient way to lose body fat. FALSE!
Excessive cardio will strip muscle mass and body fat. This is definitely not the most efficient method for losing body fat. Once you begin stripping muscle mass, your body becomes less efficient at burning body fat. Muscle is metabolically active, which simply means it stimulates the metabolism.

For each pound of muscle you put on, you will burn up to 50 additional calories per day. If you strip muscle mass, all you accomplish is sabotaging your efforts to efficiently reduce body fat.

3. You can gain 20 pounds of muscle in a few months. FALSE!

All the claims that you read about certain routines or supplements that can help you gain "10 pounds of muscle in a month" are big fat lies. They're marketing scams to get you to buy a product. It takes diligent weight training using sufficient overload, consistency and patience to build significant muscle mass. Except for initial muscular gains which happen quickly when one begins a weight training program, it can take up to a year to gain 5-6 pounds of muscle mass.

4. The best way to lose fat is to eat very few calories. FALSE!

Always consider your body from the inside out. Your body’s main objective is to survive. It doesn’t care if you want to lose fat. In fact, it would prefer to increase fat in case of famine. Internally, the body has no idea that it’s the year 2003. It could still be 10,000 years ago for all it cares. Survival is its number one objective.

If you eat very little, the body perceives an emergency and will accommodate you by holding onto stored body fat. As well it should, because it has no idea when it will be fed again.

5. The best way to lose fat is to eat a lot of calories. FALSE!
Just as you don’t want to eat too little, you don’t want to eat too much. Duh. I know this is a “no brainer,” but the big message in the nutrition and personal training world today is that most people need to eat more to stimulate the metabolism. The truth is you need the CORRECT AMOUNT of total calories to lose body fat, not simply more food!

6. Calories are the only thing that counts when trying to lose fat or gain muscle. FALSE!
Ratios of protein, carbohydrate and fats are also important. The key to losing fat and gaining muscle is controlling and manipulating insulin levels. In simple terms, when we consume excessive calories or excessive amounts of high glycemic carbohydrates at one meal, the body’s blood sugar rises. When this happens, the pancreas secretes insulin to lower blood sugar levels.

One of the many drawbacks of this happening excessively is, along with putting you at risk for diabetes, the body also holds onto stored fat! A balance of protein, carbohydrate and fats works most efficiently in losing fat and gaining muscle.

7. A woman will get muscles as big as a guy if she lifts heavier weight (8-12 reps). FALSE!
This myth never seems to die. A woman has approximately one third of the testosterone of a man. Unless she is on anabolic steroids, growth hormones or other chemicals, a woman will never achieve the muscular size of a man. However, she can get a degree of muscularity that makes her lean, hard and tight.

8. One pound of muscle and one pound of fat are the same size. FALSE!
If I place one pound of muscle on a scale and one pound of fat on a scale, they will both weigh one pound. The difference is in total volume. One pound of muscle may appear to be the size of baseball; one pound of fat will be three times the size and look like a squiggly bowl of JELL-O.

9. You can put on a lot of muscle and lose a lot of fat at the same time. FALSE!
You can put on muscle and lose some fat in minimal amounts. However, the body functions best when it has one goal at a time. If your goal is to put on a lot of muscle, then make that your number one objective. If your goal is to lose significant body fat, then your focus should be on preserving your much earned muscle mass.

In 2001, prior to starting my training for one of my bodybuilding shows, I weighed 164 pounds (I compete as a bantam or lightweight) at 15.7 percent body fat. In 2003, prior to starting to train for a show this June, my weight was 169.5 pounds at 12.6 percent body fat. As you can see, I put on some muscle and lost some fat. The change was significant but realistic. As I prepare for my show in June, I will attempt to preserve what I’ve earned as I reduce to approximately 3 percent body fat.

10. The more protein I consume, the more muscle I will put on my body. FALSE!
The human body requires the correct amount of protein to put on muscle. The hardworking weight trainer requires a lot more protein than the sedentary person. However, the correct amount is key, not excessive amounts.

In addition, the body uses protein, carbohydrate and a small
amount of fat to build muscle, not simply excessive protein.

I hope you find these points helpful. Now that you have some newly found knowledge, just remember to bite your tongue when someone spouts out a fallacy. With tact and patience, share your knowledge and help spread the word.

Curious About The Master Cleanse? Then You Need To Know... The Master Cleanse Is Not As Easy As Everyone Thinks -

Here's How You Can Avoid The Side Effects
And Comfortably Finish The Master Cleanse

Animal source proteins are considered superior by
the medical establishment because they are:

(A). High in protein content. (Actually they have too much protein, which is then stored in the body as a toxin.)

(B). Complete Proteins: (Although this is true, this is not necessarily advantageous, since animal source proteins have the following disadvantages:)

1. They are difficult to digest; More energy is required to digest meat than can be obtained from the meat. This wears out the protein digestive organs, and leads to stressful indigestion.

2. The body's attempt to rid itself of the excess protein congests the liver and overworks the kidneys which have to expel the excess nitrogen through urine. People with kidney disease are urged to eat low protein diets. Perhaps eating a low protein diet to begin with would PREVENT kidney disease. Excessive protein consumption is also linked to Urinary disease, Renal cancer and Lymphosarcoma.

3. Animal source proteins are not a real food - they are missing some of the ingredients of real food.

4. Animal proteins contain inorganic acids which are TOXIC to humans. Only modest amounts of animal protein have been found to result in cancerous tumors in animal studies. Moreover, human studies also support this carcinogenic effect of animal protein, even at usual levels of consumption. In my view, no chemical carcinogen is nearly so important in causing human cancer as animal protein. (Dr. T Colin Campbell M.S., Ph.D. Nutrition Advocate Vol. 1 No.6 December 1995.)

5. Meat is high in fat. Dr. Benjamin Spock M.D. Says that a high fat diet, which means eating relatively large amounts of meat, dairy products, and fried foods, is the main cause of arteriosclerosis, coronary heart disease, stroke, certain forms of cancer, and obesity. (not good).

6. The artificial hormones, steroids, and other chemicals injected or fed to the animal to make them grow faster/bigger/healthier (healthier?) don't do us humans any good at all; they are toxic.

7. The U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC), Enteric Diseases Branch, has concluded that subtherapeutic amounts of antibiotics added to animal stock feed have subsequently caused animals to develop highly resistant strains of bacteria (mutant forms of E. coli and others) which are then passed on for human consumption in all meat products. In fact it's estimated that 20-25 percent of all bacterial illnesses (and perhaps 50% of all food poisoning) in the U.S. stem directly from antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria and the consumption of meats. (New England Journal of Medicine Vol 243, p.617-621, 1984)

The response of the European Economic Community to the routine feeding of antibiotics to U.S. livestock (55% of all antibiotics used in the US) was to BAN the importation of U.S. meat. So the answer to the question: "What's for Dinner?" is: Antibiotics, Steroids, Pesticides, DDT, Dieldrin, bacteria and Cholesterol. . . . . . . . . Yum!

Take a piece of steak. Cut it open and the juice runs out right? and it's nice and juicey and tender looking? We know that the red fluid is BLOOD, right? and you dunk your bread in it. There is a clear fluid there some of it is fat, and water, but one of the main components of that clear fluid is uric acid...(cow pee). And you dunk your bread in it....why do you do that?

By the way, the old advice that your hamburger is safe if it's brown in the middle is WRONG. Unless you want to feed your family raw E. coli bacteria, you should use a digital meat thermometer, and be certain the interior of the hamburger is 160 degrees F. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in January 99 that the DEATH TOLL from tainted meat {do click on this one} from just one plant has risen to 12 people. If you would like to see a list of some of the more recent meat recalls click here Also see where the FDA is now OK'ing diseased meat for sale in a supermarket near you.

OK, I'll just eat CHICKEN:
30 to 50% of supermarket chickens are contaminated with salmonella (which can survive microwave cooking). Almost 100% contain campylobacter pathogens; look that one up!

One day just PULL THE PLUG on your freezer, but don't open it for three to five days. When you open the door it will smell. The stink you smell is the smell of death. Your Freezer is sealed pretty well isn't it? Nothing can get in or out when the door is closed, but you will not be alone in the room. In your freezer will be maggots and worms. Where did they come from? The maggots and the worms were in the meat! and you EAT them....Why do you do that.?

Vegetable source proteins are good for us, easy to digest, and can supply all our nutritional needs.

BUT when you eat meat, the body regards most of it as a toxin, so it depletes the immune system to get the enzymes to try & handle the problem, steals calcium (osteoporososis) from the tissues and bones to neutralize the phosphoric acid, and speeds up the metabolism to rid itself of this junk...why do you do that?
Is it worth it? is TASTE your overriding concern?

Do you live to eat ?
do you eat to live?

Most Americans live to eat. They are controlled by a six inch long organ.
If you identify with that, (your tongue, silly!) you may want to re-think your priorities in life.

Pound for Pound, hamburgers cost more than new cars,
so give up hamburgers and get a new car instead!.

Meat Eating Society

Meat Eating Society (What's the connection to our health?)

How much longer can we allow this incredible madness to go on? Can we remain silent while corporations run these legalized murder factories? Torture, sacrifice, abuse, mistreatment - the evil act of killing innocent sentient beings for profit and greed. It's also costing the lives of millions of humans to cancer, stroke and heart disease.

There's a sick and evil travesty that's taken' over the planet Earth. It's these abominable animal exploitation and killing realities. Mankind's ritualistic and hideous animal concentration camps of filth, disease, death and brutality. Yes, It's just another gruesome and horrifying major holocaust of unimaginable cruelty.

Money, money and more money is all the industries of death care about. Cut em up, slice em up, feed em to the masses of hungry carnivores. Hang em upside down by their hind legs, 'till it's for mercy they beg. Blood thirsty professional killers, high tech machinery butchering' billions of cows, chickens, lambs and pigs behind the blood splattered slaughterhouse steel doors.

Is there any wonder why there has to be so much anarchy? It's all because the government and fast food companies are drugging' and brainwashing you into this corrupt and violent meat eating society.

Just close your eyes to the horror that's hidden behind there. Your neighborhood supermarket brings your choice of flesh right to you. You don't have to kill it, and you don't have to watch it die. Just pay the robotic cashier up front, that's all you have to do. Then you can drive on home, and cook your E-Coli contaminated poisoned stew.

Have you ever wondered why there's so much violence in America and all over the world? Well, I'll tell you, The same disrespect man has for animals, he has for himself. No wonder there are serial killers, world wars, women being raped, capital punishment, and gangs killing' one another, is that {enough of a clue}? Our prison systems most violent criminals are being fed on a steady diet of murdered animal beings.

So much of this madness and killing stems from man's inhumanity to animals. {What a shame} PepsiCo, I.B.P., McDonalds, ConAgra, Tyson foods, and all the other criminal meat merchants of death are all cold and heartless, murderous capitalistic beasts, who fuel the violence flame.

Is there any wonder why there has to be so much anarchy? It's all because the government and fast food companies are drugging' and brainwashing you into this corrupt and violent meat eating society.

I'm sick and tired of all this, poor defenseless animals getting their throats cut - All for steak, ribs and chops.

I'm sure proud, and I'll say it clear and loud. I don't eat cows, pigs, fish or fowl. I'm a vegetarian - In defense of all the animals incarcerated on death row. We've got to liberate them, set them free, and let them go! We've got to educate the masses, or face total destruction! For everything we do, we reap what we sow!
You are what you eat, and what you eat can kill you. More people on this Earth, they die with their knife and fork. , swallowing chemicalized pieces of rotted flesh. Chewing on their greasy fat burgers, and their disgusting bacterial ridden, cancerous Farmer John pork.

Is there any wonder why there has to be so much anarchy? It's all because the government and fast food companies are drugging' and brainwashing you into this corrupt and violent meat eating society.

So what's this stuff about, burnt dead chicken so finger lickin' good? Just more deceptive advertising, and more government cover-up and lies. The legal system, and the deceitful media (keeps us from the truth.) Ten thousand butcher shops, slaughter plants and Ronald McDonalds are hypnotizing and mind-controlling our youth.
Haven't we had enough of this world-wide animal murdering insanity that's causing so much human violence and suffering?

It's time to WAKE UP!

Meat is cold blooded murder my friends and that's no lie.

The Magical Power of Fermented Foods

The Magical Power of Fermented Foods

Most of us are familiar with the concept of how important it is for our planet to have a balanced ecosystem in order to perpetuate itself, where each species contributes to the life of another in an environment that supports healthy growth and vitality. At the present time, it appears that Earth's ecosystem is at risk of deteriorating at an alarming rate, unless we can change this course of events.

Just like the planet that we live on, we too have an ecosystem inside our bodies that supports our growth and vitality, and just like the Earth's, our inner world is also at risk, as evidenced by the tremendous increase in infectious disease, degenerative conditions and autoimmune disorders. Cancer, Alzheimer's, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, allergies, chronic fatigue, candidiasis, fibromyalgia, and depression are affecting adults and children alike.

What's even more significant is the tremendous increase in cases of autism, afflicting over 1 million American children in the past five years and more in England, Australia and Canada that we know of. In California, one out of every 125 children is born autistic. Vaccines have been largely blamed for this increase; however, the problem begins even before birth.

Why are these problems unique to modern society, and what did our ancestors know that enabled them to live their lives free of these ailments? The answer may lie in that inner world struggling to survive inside of us.

Before birth, a baby grows in the sterile environment of its mother's womb. Just before delivery, the mother's cervix dilates about 2 cm, which allows bacteria from the birth canal to enter the amniotic fluid in the womb.

The baby drinks this fluid and is inoculated with the bacteria. A healthy mother's birth canal is filled with beneficial bacteria or microflora such as lactobacillus and bifidus. These healthful bacteria are known as probiotics and form the foundation for a healthy immune system. Probiotic means "for life," in contrast to antibiotic, which means "against life." As the baby travels through the birth canal he picks up more of the bacteria there until he exits into the outer world.

In truth, most mothers no longer have the beneficial microflora living inside of them, so they cannot give it to their babies. Approximately 85 percent of pregnant women now have pathogenic bacteria inside their birth canal instead of the healthful bacteria their baby needs for protection.

Once the baby is born, if he is nursed, the colostrum secreted by his mother's breasts before her milk comes in further enhances his immunity. The colostrum is teeming with immune-enhancing antibodies, proteins, peptides and transfer factor that enter the baby's body and are immediately absorbed through the baby's now-permeable intestines to allow this event to occur.

For the first six hours the colostrum that is produced contains no sugar, but then the baby's gut seals up and the colostrum becomes sweet with sugar. The sugar feeds the microflora and causes a bed of mucus to form on the lining of the intestines, which allows the beneficial microflora to adhere to it. As the baby continues to nurse he develops a fully functioning ecosystem, which establishes a healthy immune system early in life. This is the way nature vaccinates our children.

Currently, because of the presence of pathogenic bacteria in the mother's birth canal which may or may not cause a problem, doctors are recommending that mothers be hooked up to an antibiotic I.V. drip as soon as they begin labor. Since antibiotics do not discriminate between harmful bacteria and beneficial bacteria, this practice essentially destroys the baby's fragile ecosystem and young immune system.

In an ideal world, as the child grows he would be fed foods that are rich in probiotics, which would continue to protect him from harmful pathogens normally encountered in daily life. These foods are largely missing from the modern American diet, which is unfortunate since beneficial microflora make up 85 percent of our immune system.

In her groundbreaking book "The Body Ecology Diet," Donna Gates, a pioneer in the field of nutrition and health, refers to these microflora as alchemists and highly intelligent beings that communicate at all times with our enteric nervous system, located in the intestines and commonly referred to as the second brain. In fact, she maintains that it is this second brain that is ultimately controlling the primary brain in our head. Recent scientific research has discovered that the same receptor sites for neuropeptides and other brain chemicals that exist in our brain are also present in our gut. Of course, we all can relate to that "gut feeling" we have when we are intuitively guided to do something.

The brain in our head needs nutrients to function such as high-quality proteins, glucose, and essential fats, which all come from the intestines. Neurotransmitters such as serotonin, which help us to relax, are created from these nutrients in the intestines and transported up to the brain. The microflora play an essential role in the production of these substances.

They help to break down our food so we can digest it and actually produce all of the B vitamins, vitamin K, and short-chain fatty acids that are essential for immune and nervous-system function. They assist in alkalizing our blood by pulling out minerals from the food that nourishes our cells, and create an environment where harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts and parasites cannot thrive. They eat excess sugars from our diet so they cannot harm us, and effectively eliminate sugar cravings.

If we are deficient in a particular mineral such as calcium, the microflora can change other minerals such as silica into the calcium that we need. They can even transform harmful substances such as the toxic byproducts of undigested proteins, chemicals and heavy metals into substances that are useful to the body, hence their reputation as alchemists.

Without this healthy ecosystem in place we become malnourished, toxic, emotionally stressed and sick. Donna Gates feels that autism is essentially a "gut-brain" disorder and that the only way to heal these children is to re-establish a healthy inner ecosystem. Her BEDROK diet, the Body Ecology Diet for Recovering Our Kids, has a protocol for healing autism that is very successful. As adults, we can also restore our inner world and heal disease, slow down aging, and become healthier and happier fully functioning human beings.

In order to do this we need only to look at the way our ancestors ate and prepared their foods. Traditional cultures from around the world all incorporated probiotic-rich foods into their diets. Before modern technology gave us refrigeration and even in underdeveloped countries today, the only way to preserve food was to ferment it. As it turns out, these cultured or fermented foods contained the life-giving microflora that nourished and protected them through the ages.

Nutritionist Sally Fallon reveals in her fascinating book, "Nourishing Traditions," the incredible health benefits of ancient foods and inspires us to return to this way of eating to recover our health. In days of old, crops were grown in the spring, harvested in the summer and fall, and then preserved through the process of lacto-fermentation to continue to provide food throughout the winter. This was possible because of lactobacilli bacteria, which is naturally present on the surface of all living things, especially on the leaves and roots of plants and in raw, unpasteurized dairy products.

Under certain conditions, lactobacilli will convert the starches and sugars in vegetables, fruits and dairy products into lactic acid, which is a natural preservative that inhibits the growth of putrefying bacteria. The lactobacilli also produce enzymes that enhance digestibility and increase vitamin and mineral levels in the food. Natural antibiotic and anti-carcinogenic substances are also produced. In addition, lactic acid promotes the growth of healthy intestinal flora and alchemically creates hydrogen peroxide that oxygenates the blood.

The traditional process of fermentation begins with first washing and cutting up vegetables or fruits and mixing them with herbs and spices. They are then pounded briefly to release juices, mixed with a solution of salt water and then put into airtight containers where they remain at room temperature for several days.

After that, they are stored in a cool, dark place where they will keep for several months. Now, culture starters are available containing healthy microflora and beneficial yeasts that provide a nutrient-rich base for fermentation without the need for salt. Today fermented foods can be purchased in stores, but many of them have added vinegar or have been pasteurized, which destroys the beneficial microflora. Historically, the American Indians pounded vegetables and put them in vessels below the ground, where they were stored for months or even years.

In Europe, sauerkraut is perhaps the most popular fermented food. It is made from cabbage, which is known for its anti-cancer properties and high levels of vitamin C and major minerals. The ancient Romans valued sauerkraut for its medicinal properties. In 18th century England, Captain Cook stored 60 barrels of sauerkraut on his ship before embarking on a 27-month voyage.

During that entire time not one sailor came down with scurvy, a debilitating condition caused by vitamin C deficiency, which was common on the high seas. Cucumbers, beets and turnips were also typically fermented in Europe. In Russia and Poland, green tomatoes, peppers and lettuces were favorite cultured foods. Ketchup, chocolate, coffee and tea were also originally fermented foods.

Oriental people prepared and ate cultured foods with every meal. The Korean food kimchi is a fermented blend of cabbage, carrots, green onions, ginger, garlic and hot peppers. The Japanese eat fermented umeboshi plums, miso, soy sauce, nato, and tamari. The Chinese government distributes cabbage to the population each fall to ferment and store through the cold winter months. The Indonesians eat tempeh, which is fermented soy. It is important to note that the only soy foods that the body can actually digest and tolerate are fermented. Unfermented soy products such as soy milk and tofu are actually harmful to health.

Kefir, which means "feel good" in English, is a fermented dairy product originally from the region of Turkey where it is believed Noah's Ark was discovered. It is said that kefir was a gift from the gods, and that the gods told the Turkish people to never reveal the secret of how it was prepared. However, legend has it that the Russians heard of the healing, rejuvenative properties of kefir and tricked the Turks into giving them the recipe. Even today, Russian schoolchildren receive a glass of kefir daily, compliments of the government.
Kefir can be easily made by adding a starter culture of beneficial microflora to milk. Raw organic milk from grass-fed cows or goats is best, since pasteurization kills the beneficial enzymes normally present in milk. Cultured or soured milk products are common throughout the world, including Scandinavia, the Middle East and India. Crème fraiche, a soured milk product, is used in France in many recipes. Cultured butter and fermented cheeses are also common throughout Europe. Yogurt is a cultured milk product that has some helpful microflora, but does not have the potent probiotic properties or beneficial yeasts inherent in kefir.
Any food can be cultured. During the fermentation process, even high-glycemic foods such as fruits, carrots, beets and sweet potatoes are beneficial as the microflora eat the sugars in these foods, rendering them harmless to the body.

Fermented dairy products provide numerous benefits. During fermentation the casein, or milk protein, is broken down, making it more digestible. Vital enzymes that are destroyed during pasteurization may be restored, including lactase, which enables us to digest the milk sugar lactose. Donna Gates believes that no one is actually lactose-intolerant. She feels that it is the lack of a healthy inner ecosystem that prevents us from being able to digest dairy products. She herself was unable to digest milk for 25 years until she discovered how to balance her ecosystem.

She now has raw and cultured dairy products on a regular basis. She believes raw butter to be an important food for the recovery of autistic children because of its content of high-quality essential fats, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and butyric acid. Her Body Ecology Diet, which incorporates food combining, the blood-type diet, and aspects of Chinese medicine, is also excellent for anyone who would like to recover from chronic candidiasis, digestive problems, cancer, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, osteoporosis, depression, or for anyone who would like to reach the peak of health.

Donna has recently introduced a new cultured food into her diet: kefir made from the juice of young green coconuts. This delicious drink nourishes the body, cleanses the liver and enhances digestion. While most fermented foods can be quite tart and tangy, coconut kefir has a sweet aftertaste. A scrumptious fermented pudding can also be made from the pureed coconut meat. Rich in anti-microbial and anti-parasitic lauric acid and balanced amounts of calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and vitamin C, these foods are a tonic for exhausted adrenal glands and emotionally stressed systems.

I personally had a profound experience just five days after beginning the Body Ecology Diet, which included drinking coconut kefir twice daily and eating cultured vegetables with every meal. Having a history of dental problems, I have always had a build-up of tartar behind my lower front teeth, regardless of regular professional cleanings. On the fifth day of being on this diet, the tartar buildup easily came right off my teeth when I brushed them in the morning. I was astounded! The only thing I can surmise is that my body chemistry had changed to a more alkaline pH, which facilitated the disintegration of the tartar. Others have reported numerous benefits from eating this way, including healthy weight loss, improved digestion, elimination of joint pain, easier, cleaner menstrual periods, improved vision, more beautiful glowing skin, and a general feeling of well-being. In time, many people find that they no longer need their antidepressants.

Eating cultured foods on a regular basis is the most effective way to heal a leaky gut, a condition that exists because of a weakened and often inflamed permeable intestinal membrane, which allows undigested food particles to enter the blood stream. Crohn's disease, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic allergies and immune system disorders are all ultimately caused by this problem. In fact, most of the population has this condition because of diet and lifestyle.

Many people believe that taking probiotic supplements such as acidophilus capsules is sufficient for populating the intestines with beneficial microflora. However, without the foundation established by dietary sources of probiotics, the microflora in the supplements cannot properly colonize the intestines.

By including fermented foods in our diet, we can reestablish a healthy inner ecosystem, which protects us from harmful pathogens and environmental toxins. We can then eat foods such as raw eggs and raw meats (as our ancestors did) without fear of getting salmonella, E. coli or parasites.

Even if we did pick up these things we might have some slight discomfort, but we wouldn't become seriously ill as we do now. The ancients knew the powerful magic that nature gave them to stay strong and healthy. We, too, can carry on the traditions that enabled many generations to survive through the ages and ensure a healthy future for our children and the planet that we live on.
