The nutrition class I am finding to be interesting though thus far it is mostly review. I did find a couple of things interesting though that he has talked about and to be points to ponder.
1. Yesterday he stated that nutrition can not HEAL any illnesses or sickness. It can only be used as a form of prevention. What are your thoughts about this? Personally I have seen my own body heal USING nutrition. When I was younger I had endometriosis, asthma, bad acne, weight problems, CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) and an underactive thyroid. I was able to get better by diet changes. I took out flour, sugar, and coffee and added in lots of carrot juice, raw foods (fruits and veggies) and some beans. I was already eating a lot of that anyway, BUT i was also hooked on coffee at the time and sugar. By this diet change alone, this did for me what the doctors and nutritionists I saw at that time could not. My body healed. I dropped weight. i had more energy. Gone were the days of being totally exhausted. Gone was the endometriosis. My thyroid is still within normal range on bloodwork at this point as well but my body seems to need more iodine support so I do take iodine but it is not because bloodwork would show that i need to.
I know so many more people who have healed ailments by changing their diet? So if nutrition is only a prevention then how could so many people be healed of their ailments by changing ther diet? I would question this one personally. Not that I am saying he is wrong but having seen so many people get better from changing their diet. What would be the reason behind this? They were all suffering from severe nutritional deficiencies?
2. He stated that "cancer could not survive in a vit A rich environment" If this is the case, is that why so many people have seen healings of their ailments following the hallelujah acres diet? (www.hacres.com) When i was first introduced to raw foods it was through that venue. It did work to clear up many ailments. I am still trying to consume carrot juice. I would like to work my way up to 2 glasses per day but not more than that. There are so many people who have been amazingly healed of so many things. I am not saying it is one way or another. This is just a point to ponder and wonder on today.
For those that wanted the taco recipes, they are up and posted now! Yay. so take a peek. Also up is the banana ice cream recipe. I will try to get the cheezy sprinkles and guacamole up this weekend.
