Want to live longer, healthier life? Here are some things to consider doing yourself for best results. In a world of drugs many people rely on the doctor for everything that ills them. You can avoid the trip to the doctor by doing things the right way from the start. Consider the white foods in our diets today. Do we need them and what do they contribute to our health?
White foods are unnecessary in our diets as a whole.
Why is that?
They effect our health in several different ways. Take white bread for example. It contributes to weight gain and it is full of gluten, starch and sugar.
Salt is another white substance that the body does not produce, does not recognize, therefore it can not process, but eliminates it trough the pores, urine and so on. Too much salt can hinder elimination. That creates buildup in various places of the body, eventually causing pain and other side effects like high blood pressure.
Rice, corn and potatoes are all starches that should be avoided or eaten in great moderation. Proteins of animal source are encouraged, as they are pure and provide more nutrients, than some of the foods which are processed or combined with other properties, beside pure protein and minerals that come in meat and fish. If you want to use potato, choose a sweet “orange” potato instead. Use foods in the season, rarely dry foods. If weight lost is desired, legumes and fruits of any kind are omitted during the pure protein and vegetables diet.
How about our “friend” the sugar?
We all like sweets, but sugar is a killer of many people through improper use. In the fast pace world today, stress of dead lines and fast food, people reach for any boost they can get their hands on. What’s with the “Bull” drink! Is all this sugar good for our health? The answer is “No”. Just another white pirate in disguise. Sugar is to be avoided during periods of dieting with pure protein.
What about milk?
Is it white? Yes! Why is it one of the culprits in our better health?
Milk causes runny nose, headaches, sinuses irritation and more. It use to be, that when you got sick, they gave you a glass of milk before bed, but the next morning your nose got fuller than it was before and you got more headache. No one even linked milk to that manifestation, but today we know more about health than ever before and milk has been excluded from many healthy diets. If you have runny nose in the summer and get up in the morning with white substance around your eyes, consider what you are drinking. Often, when milk consumption is stopped, runny nose and headache stop as well. Your eyes are cleared up and you feel more alert. If you need something good in your stomach for pain, choose yogurt instead, as it delivers good bacteria that helps ulcer pain and pre-ulcer symptoms.
Yes, one can have feta cheese. What a relief! The operative word again is “moderation”. Feta cheese should be seen as a treat, as it is made out of milk as well, and although it contains calcium, one should not rely on it for all their calcium needs. Excessive calcium will be eliminated from the body and the effects are no better.
But there’s another player and it’s just as bad, and worse for some people.
It’s name is “soy” (or “soya” if you’re splitting hairs).
Promoted as a health food for profit, soy is a bugger. We can’t digest it. In fact the Chinese knew this way back in the 1700s which is why a lot of soy foods are fermented when eaten in the Far East (think miso, tempeh, natto).
Fermentation aids digestion – we NEED to ferment it in order to make it palatable and digestible, which says it all really.
There are white foods that are extremely beneficial to us, like onions and garlic. Cooking with them every day is especially good for the body, as the garlic wards off many illnesses, like colds, allergies, digestive problems, yeast infections and more.
Understanding more about white foods is important in making the right decisions for preventing illness in your life. It would be simple to remember and avoid or greatly moderate white foods in your consumption. Always look for natural solutions of any health symptoms first, then see if you can bounce back yourself, instead of becoming dependent on pills for the rest of your life.
White foods, once again, cause a chemical imbalance in the body and the brain and are slowly and silently killing people around the world. We have the knowledge to stop this from happening to us. So, use your knowledge for good health and long happy life.
