Sugars That Heal
We have heard before that food can be your medicine. We have even applied the healing properties of foods and diets to a great many diseases with some success. Yet nutritionists were missing as piece of the puzzle so to speak. Now, we have the three legged stool of nutrition, explained as the nutrition that can help anyone and will help everyone: essential proteins, essential fats, and essential carbohydrates. There was no exact right or wrong answer until now. Yet, with this cutting edge research on the polysaccharide, we now have an answer. We have a nutritional science, and we have a healing modality that encompasses food in a way that it has never before.
In every dimension of health there is a facet that has until now proved missing: the missing link is the polysaccharide and its role in immune function. This small molecule affects every area of nutrition, from digestion, absorption, utilization, elimination and even moreso affects communication between molecules, people, and people groups. This commentary on human nutrition will only begin to explore the small amount of research in the area of the sugar molecules necessary for health. In fact, until now sugar was almost deemed a deadly poison and avoided in all its forms by the most rigid of health-food enthusiasts. '
Thought to provoke hypoglycemia, diabetes, obesity, ADHD and even mental illness, sugar has been regarded as the culprit in many diseases and health concerns. Yet the very molecule that kills can also heal, and I would give as an example that the essential polysaccharide itself is necessary to prevent and cure these very diseases.
Research on the eight essential sugars is still in the pioneering stages, but these sugars are bitter and are found in primal foods. These must be consumed on a daily basis for the immune system to correctly identify other cells.
These sugars are non-numerical because they are not included in the Food Tables for dietitians and nutritionists. As such, they are the basis for The Rainbow Program, non-numerical nutrition.
You may find that this subject is more theory than practice among many health practitioners until the numerical info is in their hands in a calculated form. I bring you the science and experience of this critical information, right to your dinner table. The value is in choosing food that heals and food as medicine.
Eating By The Rainbow
How does food make you feel? Keeping a food journal of what you eat, and how it makes you feel is just the beginning of being able to piece together the connection between your moods, emotions, and what you put in your mouth.
The natural wavelengths of color affect our moods, our thinking, our behavior, and so do food coloring, chemicals and additives. If you are not sure how sensitive you are to what your body is telling you, try to record any emotions or perceptions you have within 2-3 hours of eating. Mindful eating begins when you put something in your mouth, understand your reaction or response to it, and note if it was a positive or negative experience.
Often the foods we eat every day, such as wheat, sugar, milk, and peanuts are highly allergenic when not rotated and eaten with a lot of colorful variety. Although these foods are okay from time to time, they should not compose the staple of the diet. High antioxidant foods should be what drives us to eat, and keeps our interest.
Have you heard of the idea that quality is better than quantity when it comes to food? Reach for a pure pomegranate juice, or a tomato when you want something red, try berries when you want something blue, steam some green vegetables, and see these color wavelengths begin to affect your mood. Pair these fruits and vegetables with healthy fats and high fiber carbs, and you will stabilize your blood sugar, your neurotransmitters, and your emotions.
Teach your children to garden and grow these healthy foods themselves. This will pique their interest in nutrition at a young age, and garden produce tastes best! Let them help you select foods by color at the store, and help in preparing colorful dishes. They will begin to see the effect on their motivations to eat, enjoy food, and be healthy.
