Your food should be your medicine – Hippocrates (ca. 460 BC – ca. 370 BC)
He is referred to as the Western father of medicine in recognition of his lasting contributions to the field as the founder of the Hippocratic School of medicine. This intellectual school revolutionized medicine in ancient Greece, establishing it as a discipline distinct from other fields that it had traditionally been associated with (notably theurgy and philosophy), thus establishing medicine as a profession.
However, the achievements of the writers of the Corpus, the practitioners of Hippocratic medicine, and the actions of Hippocrates himself are often commingled; thus very little is known about what Hippocrates actually thought, wrote, and did. Nevertheless, Hippocrates is commonly portrayed as the paragon of the ancient physician. In particular, he is credited with greatly advancing the systematic study of clinical medicine, summing up the medical knowledge of previous schools, and prescribing practices for physicians through the Hippocratic Oath, Corpus and other works.
I am not against doctors (I have few good friends who are docs), I am not against medicine (it has helped me a lot in my past). I am against the excessive use of it. In case of emergency you anyways have no say so forget that scenario. The undue importance to medicine for small things is what bothers. Firstly I want to acknowledge the “Orange walk” approach which prevents you from illnesses most of your life. Your get illness only when your body needs rest….that’s it. You take rest and you get well…that is it. Most of the other viruses, bacteria and other germs have impact on body only if immunity is low and toxins are high. Orangewalk body is free of toxins and hence only when you lose track you get ill( As in my case). Then we also have to look at the BIG BIG pharma lobby, the syndicate (mafia would not be a wrong word) who are in aggressive marketing introducing new diseases everyday with the anti viruses (same like software anti-virus companies, who create the virus first and then the anti-virus comes in market). BE AWARE OF THE PHARMA MAFIA , THEY PLAY WITH YOUR LIFE.
Natural way is essentially the simplest, direct way to live
-Dr. Vijaya Venkat
Vijaya Venkat is a committed health activist. Her aim is to enable a better understanding of health and nutrition, two interrelated aspects, for total wellness. Vijaya believes that the present system of health care, based on curing is inadequate. The key to good living, she feels, lies in the positive element of caring. This implies a commitment to a lifestyle, so that the cared for body does not need to be cured “Health is the result of healthful living,” she says. I always enjoy interacting with Vijaya dadi , she has fantastic sense of humor and is very aggressively against “THEY” (I don’t know exactly who this ‘they’ are.) … 🙂
I would like to share with you what Dr. Vijaya Venkat says on illness, germs and food : “At any given time, each one of us carries an unbelievable amount of germs in our bodies. But we are not constantly sick. These bugs are there for a purpose-they cleanse our bodies by keeping what is needed by the body and throwing out the rest. When we create a toxic environment in our bodies through wrong eating habits, too much stress and not enough rest, these germs get activated. The body has to eliminate the waste, which is discharged from the body in the form of colds, coughs, fever, etc. Therefore, an ‘infection’ is the body’s way of throwing out its waste. The best thing to do at this time is to help the body cleanse itself. This can be done by adding more life to your body by eating raw and living foods. Fruits are energisers, they help cleanse the body by giving it an extra dose of energy needed at the time. All types of fruits, including citrus fruits are good for you. For best results eat fruits of different colours and have plenty of them. Also, morning is the best time for fruits because that is when your body is eliminating maximum waste.
Include fresh herbs like garlic, fresh turmeric, amla, onion etc. They boost the Mitch immune system through their anti-oxidant properties. Add these liberally to all that you eat.
Fresh raw vegetables help in the reconstruction of cells, making them stronger and more resistant. At least one-third of your food should consist of fresh raw vegetables. Find ways to include these in your diet in the form of juices, salads, etc.
Getting enough rest is the best way to restore your body’s balance. Immunity cells are activated in the first half of the night-between 8 pm to midnight, (following the circadian rhythm, which is roughly a 24-hour cycle in the biochemical, physiological, or behavioural processes of living entities). This also explains why when we sleep late or don’t get enough sleep, we wake up with a sniffle or feeling feverish.
Avoid foods that create an acidic environment. Certain foods can create an acidic environment in the body. These include wheat (as it contains gluten, a sticky substance) milk (which contains casein), sugar, iodised salt and packaged foods, which contain preservatives. These should be excluded from your diet.”
So some key points to be noted are:
- Be on orange walk, body toxin free and sickness free.
- When sick go to fruits not to the chemist( his medicines may seem to cure now but in long run will cause bigger diseases. Suppression doesn’t address the root cause it only hides it to come out later more violently)
- Nothing else ….Have Fun, enjoy life and keep rocking…..Trust me I am already feeling great.
