Life force can be measured in and seen through Kirlean photography of absolutely anything. Life is animated by this life force or electricity and in foods, the life force as a measure is a property that allows something to be able to reproduce in nature. It is the living matrix that makes up that particular food. And it surrounds all living things, trees, water, rocks, seeds, fruits and you! It is a matter of life and death for us as living systems, that we eat foods that have this electrical charge of life itself and an abundance of enzymes. It’s all about the enzymes and biological energy. As opposed to chemical (reactive) energy. Biological energy is that mysterious force in nature that drives all living things. The more biological energy we have the more we shine!
The first step is education. There’s a lot of hocus pocus in the big bad world today, but the most self-empowering thing we can do is to find things out for ourselves so we can truly be owners our experiences. Only you know what is right for you. We offer a fun and clear approach to a simple but fundamental act we do every day. Eating.
And SUPERFOODS!! Less is more. For some it seems a little too ‘extravagant’ or ‘elitist’ to even grasp this ‘new category’ of foods. But what are they exactly?
Simply, they are foods that have an abundance of beneficial nutrients.
Like Cacao, for example. Magnesium is often one of the most deficient minerals in humans today and cacao is one of, if not the highest natural source of magnesium. Not to mention the other beneficial minerals and neurotransmitters that are of an abundance in raw cacao. Making raw chocolate with superfoods and tonic herbs, all of a sudden becomes a powerful and fun nutrient delivery system that’s a great way to get adults and kids making and consuming nutrients. Can I lick the bowl!!
More and more ‘super-nutritious-foods’ are being discovered all the time as we uncover what it is in foods that makes them healthy. A small handful each of gojis and bee pollen and a half a dropper full of marine-phytoplankton provides an excellent profile of proteins and amino acids for our noble bodies. Remember that we don’t want to be eating all day just to get our nutrients. There is more to life. We believe that with nutrition, it’s beneficial to adopt a ‘less is more approach’. Less amounts consumed = more nutrients, less time in the kitchen, and more time for you. Superfoods are awesome! Hooray for superfoods!!
Tonic herbalism is another self-empowering system we use every day to give us that leverage. So, let’s be clear and realistic about this approach to health and vitality. We do not heat treat foods so as to maintain the integrity of the natural nutritional profile of the food i.e. enzymes, proteins, life force etc. Tonic herbalism, particularly a Taoist (connected, balanced) approach to tonic herbalism is focused on extracting different constituents from roots, barks, leaves etc. that our bodies do not have the bilic acids to extract and they can handle very high temperatures. Like polysaccharides, for example. They can handle temperatures of up 250-340+deg C. As can beta-glucans and sapponins.
These allies are all very powerful and are necessary for immune support (resisting enervation) for us. Some have adaptogenic properties that have been used in various cultures for up to 5000 years to bring about great health. We love tonic herbalism, and can show you the path to understanding more of this powerful system.
Living spring water that we gather ourselves fresh from the source. Freshly extracted juices consumed within minutes of extraction. Within minutes from extracting the juice or ‘life water’ from the fiber of the fruit or veg, ‘Zeta potential’ (measurement of energy within the degree of structure in a colloidal system) loss occurs and sediment or separation appears leaving free radicals behind. We don’t like to drink free radicals. Fresh coconut water bursting with electrolytes (mineral salts and acids), superfood smoothies, green smoothies, structured water. colloidal mineral beverages and sprouted living mylks made from activated seeds, sprouts and nuts.
Foods that have not been processed in any way, shape or form are raw and living foods until they have been prepared over 118degF or 48degC.
Living and raw foods both contain enzymes. In living foods, the enzyme content is much higher. Raw, unsprouted nuts contain enzymes in a “dormant”
state. To activate the enzymes contained in almonds, for example, soak them
in water for 8 hours. Once the almonds begin to sprout, the enzymes become “active” and are then considered living. In the context of this web site, the terms are used loosely.
Firstly, they’re an individual who wants more from life. They want the edge, self-empowerment, and clarity. We call it ‘the glow’. Secondly, they’re a person who eats 75% or more living/raw food. The more, the better. Optimally, one should eat 100% raw and living foods, if it feels right for them.
Viktorus Kulvinskas, one of the world’s foremost and most experienced active researchers into enzyme nutrition has information showing how stomach acid merely deactivates food enzymes. The enzymes are then reactivated in the more alkaline small intestine. Many people who eating more or all raw foods often remark on the difference in their energy levels, lighter digestion and a deeper connection with nature by eating enzyme-rich living foods. When we remove cooked protein from our diet, our stomach doesn’t need to produce as much acid (which has its own problems) , thus creating a lighter, more balanced and energetic vehicle.
When juicing or eating food, it is very important to choose to consume only organically grown produce. “Conventional” or “industrial” produce is grown with pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, and other chemicals that are toxic and/or harmful to your body. Organic foods are grown without the use of these harmful substances, taste better, and are more nutritious.
No, but if you had the choice between nasty lab-made pesticides and healthful consciously grown foods, I bet your instincts would suggest the latter. It has been shown that organic produce contains less pesticides and other toxic residues. It’s worth mentioning that it has been shown that organic food may tastes better and contain more nutrition. Could it be that the flavor in food is the nutrition? OMG! I’m inclined to ask for a refund from all the non-organic produce that I have bought that was labelled healthy, tasty and delicious that has turned out to be otherwise.
It can remove some of the surface pesticide residue, but not the pesticide that was the foundation for the produce’s growth cycle. Some of the most severely tainted types of produce are strawberries and bell peppers. Some of the least tainted: carrots and avocados.
Considering we’ve been on the planet longer than fry pans and ovens, I think not. Only now we’re able to get super creative and take all of those delicious gifts from nature to a whole new level.
