Natural Nutrition

One of the most crucial problems of modern civilization is malnutrition. Whether we consider malnutrition due to poverty and shortage of food as encountered in third world countries, or witness dietary abuse problems common to the rest of the world, we find enormous suffering caused by the way we feed ourselves. We are dying of malnutrition.

Fortunately, there is hope. Our modern society is awakening to a new and vital interest in nutrition. This curiosity is not aimed at the traditional dietetic and scientific field. Rather, it involves an emerging sphere of nutrition that encompasses not only the characteristics of food, but also explores the quality of the food source. This new sphere is called “natural nutrition.”

The markets are swamped with supposedly beneficial artificial foods. But, the time has come to return back to basics and seek nature.

A shift is slowly occurring. We are beginning to understand that the only person in charge of each of us, individually, is our own self, and that no one knows more about what’s good for our own self than we do. In this move toward personal freedom and wisdom, today’s informed consumer recognizes that he is what he eats. He also realizes that food does not nourish the physical body alone. Mind and consciousness are not divided from the physical self.

It becomes clear, then, that there is no diet that is right for everyone all of the time. Neither are there miracle nutrients that will cure all ills. Each person is unique, and each must exercise his or her judgment as to what is right for his or her own well-being.

The properties of natural nutrients are best summed up in these four words: natural, alive, good quality.

Natural, as in unprocessed, unrefined foods, such as whole grains and legumes.

Alive, meaning that it still contains live enzymes, such as fruit, vegetables, and sprouts.

Good quality, meaning grown in soil rich in essential nutrients such as organically grown foods (pesticide free and grown without synthetic fertilizers).

These four simple words – natural – alive – good quality, can serve as a guide to everyone wishing to improve his/her health. Awareness and understanding of the simplicity of our natural needs will inevitably lead to individual and collective good health.

We need to learn to look at good nutrition not as a means to stop our diseases, but as a tool to create our own immunity and overall good health.

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will instruct his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”

Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931), The Newark Advocate (2 /1/1903), page 1
