Note: I also posted this on www.menupause because I think it is a fascinating concept.
Two friends sent this article, so I thought I would pass it along since it is quite interesting. The author (unknown) claims that this connection is God’s Pharmacy. I prefer to think it is Mother Nature at her best, combining color, shape & nutrition! The introduction notes that these foods are “best and more powerful when raw”Â and that the shapes are clues as to which foods help different parts of our bodies.
A Â sliced carrot looks like the human eye. The Â pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye… And YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the Â eyes.
AÂ tomato has four chambers and is red. The Â heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes Â are loaded with lycopene and are indeed pure heart Â and blood food
Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound Â heart and blood vitalizing food.
AÂ walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Â Even the wrinkles or folds on Â the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen Â neuron-transmitters for brain function.
Kidney beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.
Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. Â These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
Avocados, Â Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female – they look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? Â It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (Modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.
Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries.Â (Olives have pits and ovaries have eggs. es)
Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.
Onions look like the body’s cells. Today’s research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.
Note: The person who authored this article asks that you send this information to another person. The article with a lighted candle was sent in September 1998. By putting it on my website, I hope that more people will read this.Â Even if it is only a theory, the foods are all good foods to eat, especially raw.
Thanks to Jackie and Darlene for sending it and thanks to whoever wrote it!
