In the Raw: The Secret of Raw Living Vegetarian Food
Embryo Bud (Sprouts)
The first secret of raw food is the embryo bud. This is where grain starts its life. The milling process eliminates this embryo bud, which makes a huge difference. For example, brown rice is whole rice with hulls (husks) still attached; when stripped of hulls and embryo buds, it becomes white rice. When steeped in water, brown rice produces buds; white rice just rots -- proof that it's life is gone. White rice contains only 5% of the fiber, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients of brown rice. That's because 66% of vitamins and minerals are in the embryo bud, 29% in the hulls. It's little wonder that the Chinese characters for "white rice" contain part of the character for "waste." To intake living nature, we need to eat whole grain.
Animals maintain life when they eat other organisms, either plants or other animals. They mostly can't make nutritive substances on their own. Plants can make nutrients, such as glucose, protein, and vitamins, by photosynthesis. When they spread their leaves toward the sun, the chlorophyll that colors them green absorbs solar energy and produces glucose from water and carbon dioxide, an economic method of nutrition productivity.
Chlorophyll bears a striking chemical similarity to hemoglobin, the vital component of blood. Chlorophyll's phorphyrin structure has magnesium as its central metallic element; hemoglobin has iron. When an animal eats grass, a metathesis occurs in its intestinal villi, transforming a large amount of magnesium into iron. Metathesizing chlorophyll creates increased hemoglobin in the blood, which is why vegetarian animals can maintain life by eating only green grass. That's also why some people call chlorophyll "green blood."
Enzymes participate in all processes of life: birth and death, growth and maintenance. They are the catalytic elements that accelerate chemical reactions by 108 to 1011 times. Some laundry detergents contain enzymes to accelerate the dissolution of proteins and removal of dirt.
No matter how much good food we eat, the food can't become part of our bodies without enzymes. Protein, for example, is too large to pass through our blood vessels alone; enzymes must first dissolve it into molecularly-miniscule amino acid. Enzymes also produce necessary substances, dissolve unnecessary substances, and help eliminate harmful ones from the body.
As we get older, enzymes decrease their production. That's why elders often have more difficulty digesting food than younger people do. For digestive problems, we generally take peptic medicines that contain enzymes, such as amylase that dissolves rice starches, proteolytic enzyme, and fatty lipolytic enzyme.
As stress and environmental pollution increase, so does our need for enzymes. Since cooking and processing food destroys enzymes, you can see why modern urban people with busy lives often lack sufficient enzymes in their diet, and often suffer from digestion, stressed bodies, accelerated aging, and diseases.
Enzymes also need vitamins and minerals to function properly, and these are also damaged and destroyed by cooking. Raw food supplies the enzymes, vitamins, and minerals you need.
In the past, food-processing techniques focused on eliminating fiber, considering it unnecessary and difficult to digest. Now, fiber is recognized as useful in preventing and treating many ailments.
A British scholar first addressed the importance of dietary fiber after realizing that the English suffer a higher incidence of colon ailments than Africans do. He noted that an English person's average daily stool quantity was 110 grams, and it took 45 to 60 hours for the excretion to pass through their colons. In contrast, Africans had average daily stool quantity of 200 grams for urban dwellers, 300 grams for rural people, and their stool took 30 to 40 hours to pass through their colons. He found that saprogenous bacillus existed largely in English stool, while African stool contained more beneficial bacteria. The reason: the Africans' greater amount of vegetable intake gave them more fiber.
Fiber is an excellent internal cleanser. It absorbs and removes harmful waste products and poisonous materials, while reducing cholesterol and heavy metal levels. Fiber absorbs water like a sponge, and adheres to digestive tracks, which reduces digestion duration. This cuts the time carcinogens stay inside the body.
Your colon contains approximately one hundred types of bacterium, with a total of about a hundred trillion bacteria. Such beneficial bacteria as lactobacillus or lactobacillus bifidus thrive on fiber in the colon, thus retarding the growth of harmful bacteria. They dissolve fiber to make vitamins and amino acids. Fiber can be obtained through vegetables, whole grains, marine plants, and mushrooms, but not through most processed food. And more fiber is obtained by eating raw food and fruits with rinds than through cooked food.
As the name suggests, phytonutrients exist only in plants. They're usually found in the rinds and other exterior features of plants to defend against outside attacks by insects, etc. To strengthen the immunity of our own bodies, we must consume the immune substances of plants. That's why it's better to eat fruits and vegetables with rinds, leaves, stems, and roots. Known phytonutrients include carotenoid in carrots, tomatoes, and oranges, soy's isoflavone, and catechin in green tea. Only 10% of functional phytonutrients are known, but as more are revealed, phytonutrients will factor greatly in health plans. And since phytonutrients are more effective consumed fresh and whole, we need to consume them raw.
Our 60 trillion cells continuously react chemically. Vitamins give them life and vitality, turn food into energy, and abet growth, strength, and disease prevention. A person only needs a teaspoonful of vitamins per day, but since our bodies can't produce vitamins on their own, we must obtain them from food.
All natural foods contain vitamins, but we destroy them through processing and cooking. Cutting and chopping food in small pieces, even washing it, causes vitamin loss. Vitamins differ greatly in stability. Vitamin B1 and folic acid are easily destroyed by heat, and vitamin C is the most unstable of all -- it's easily affected by air, heat, acid and metals, and readily dissolves in water. Even when rinds of certain fruits and vegetables are scratched or peeled, they lose a great amount of vitamin C.
Vitamin B1 dissolves in water and is easily affected by temperature and contact with metals, alkali, and oxygen. Although vitamin B2 is less sensitive to heat, it is vulnerable to light and can be lost in water during cooking. Fat-soluble vitamins are more stable than water-soluble ones, but can easily be destroyed by high temperatures or contact with oxygen. Vitamins are destroyed in great quantity during the storage process, in both warm and cold conditions. Asparagus, for example, loses 50% of its vitamin C at 0„a C, and 90% at -21„a C. Chinese cabbage loses all its vitamin C in just a few days. B1 in a humid place easily loses its potency. That's why there's no benefit to buying fruit and vegetables in bulk at a discount. To reduce vitamin loss, buy small quantities as fresh and as frequently as possible. Store them in a dark place without airflow. Don't soak them in water but wash quickly.
When stressed, we waste the vitamins inside us, especially such antioxidants as vitamins A, C and E. With a lack of vitamins, our immune systems weaken, causing insomnia, loss of appetite, over-sensitivity, and lack of energy. These symptoms can occur long before vitamin deficiency diseases develop, such as scurvy (vitamin C deficiency), and beriberi (vitamin B1 deficiency). Each vitamin has its unique deficiency symptoms, but vitamins also have relationships with each other. Missing or lacking only one causes physical imbalances.
People try to obtain vitamins through supplements, but artificially synthesized vitamin products aren't as effective because of their low absorption rate. In addition, excessive vitamins at one time are lost through our waste system. That's why it's absolutely best to obtain vitamins through meals of raw, natural, organic food.

Weight Loss With Raw Foods
Most diets lack natural raw food which our body needs in order to digest. Enzymes are critical in providing nutrition to the body and when food is cooked the enzymes are killed. Overweight and obesity can be considered symptoms of what is going on with the body's elimination system. Enzymes from raw food positively affect not only the elimination system but the glandular system, liver, colon, skin, lungs, blood, hormones, emotions, stress levels, spirit and energy levels too.
The live enzymes from raw food are essential for every chemical reaction in every single cell of the body. Not only are enzymes lost during the cooking process but so are vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytonutrients. Overeating is a major indication that the nutrition and enzyme levels are low. Reduce or completely eliminate over-processed over-cooked foods quickly otherwise the body is signaling that it needs to store fat to prevent starvation. It also signals hunger resulting in the vicious cycle of overeating still feeling hungry. Poor digestion and insufficient enzymes, vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytonutrients most often leads to eating disorders, depression and anxiety.
