The English nutritionist, Dr. McCarrison conducted an experiment at the National Institute of Nutrition, India. He divided a thousand mice into 3 groups –
Group A eats the Hansa meal (Hansa, a mountainous region in the uppermost north of Pakistan, reputed as a paradise and also known worldwide for its many centenarians), consisting of freshly made full oat biscuits, some fruits and vegetables without meat.
Group B eats the Indian meal, consisting of grains, vegetables, meat and spices as seasoning.
Group C eats Western meal, consisting of refined white bread, ham, sausage, butter and cheese.
After 2 years and 7 months (approximately equivalent of human age of 50 – 60), an inspection was carried out for all the mice. Every mouse in Group A is very healthy, with no pathological changes discovered.
Half the mice in group B have pathological changes, primarily at the stomach, intestines, liver and kidneys. At the same time, tooth decay and hair loss are also discovered.
All the mice in Group C have pathological changes. Besides physical conditions, mental changes also appeared in this group, with the physically stronger mice gobbling up the weaker ones. During the experimental period, mice population decreased by 20%.
Which group do we want to become? Looking at the present social situation which is astonishingly similar to group C, it is believed that everyone already knew their answer.
Living in today’s environment, we definitely have to be choosy about our food!! Head of the International Natural Medicine Association, Director of Japan Ochanomizu Clinic, Keiichi Morishita (M.D.,Ph.D) said, “With the collection of a 20-year basic research and 35 years of clinical experience, he subscribes only one formula to each variety of chronic illnesses and cancers:
- No Drug Consumption
- No Meat Consumption
- No Consumption of Refined White Foods.
- Take Brown Rice Vegetarian Diet
- Take Enzyme Supplements
No Drug Consumption
There’s a saying, “All drugs are 30% poison.” The nature of the human body and of synthetic drugs is in essence completely different. Once the drugs enter the human body, the body’s metabolic function starts the immediate attempt of detoxification. In the period of time before the completion of the entire process, the vivo visceral organs in the body would have certain reaction to the drugs, resulting in short term excitement or numbness. Based on this, modern medicine ignores the source of illnesses and prescribes widely all kinds of drugs. One drug is used to suppress the drug-induced side effects of another, developing the style of treating symptoms rather than root causes of diseases. If one does not start improving one’s diet which is the key, even if one tries all kinds of healing methods, the efficacy will be limited, not to mention a full cure.
No Meat Consumption
The arrangement of the teeth, length of the intestinal tracts and extended period of dietary habits, are all reminding us human on the disposition of our herbivorous nature. All the protein required by the body can be self produced by our digestive system. Malnutrition due to non-meat consumption is an extremely misleading and harmful misunderstanding. It is very difficult for our body to digest and absorb meat. Compared to vegetarian foods, the load on our stomach and intestines are many times more. Long term weariness of them would definitely cause closely related liver lesions. At the same time, meat foods often ferment abnormally in our intestines, producing massive amounts of aged material and toxin which enters our blood stream through the intestinal walls, creating acid poisoning in the blood, causing decline in cell function, thus, leading to kidney diseases. Hence, meat eaters will definitely have pathological changes in the liver and kidneys and also disorders of the autonomic nervous system. If one does not give up meat, diseases cannot be fully cured. Recurrence of health problems is only a matter of time.
No Consumption of Refined White Foods
Rice, noodles and sugar that are white not only lack nutrition, they also cause massive loss of our minerals. Moreover, they acidify our blood stream with toxins. They are too easy to chew upon, digestive enzymes are not easily produced, and they cause degeneration in the function of the organs.
Brown Rice Vegetarian Diet
This diet is rich with wheatgerms of the brown rice and contains all the vitality of cereals and vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12 and E. They can effectively lower cholesterol, prevent atherosclerosis and enhance vascular function. Chlorophyll in plants can launch a greening of the environment in vivo, enhance metabolism, stimulate cell activation, constrain bacterium, accelerate healing, relieve allergic problems, and have remarkable curative effects towards digestive diseases like gastric ulcer, gastritis and gastroptosis. Not only are diseases cured but they can also be prevented.
Take Enzyme Supplements
Enzymes are the magicians of life. They detoxify excretion, heal inflammations, replace cells, purify blood and prolong life. They have remarkable curative and preventive effects towards heart diseases, stroke, diabetes, hypertension, myocardial infarction and so on. However, the harm of improper diet, environmental pollution, medication, alcoholism, food additives and so on, have resulted in serious enzyme deficiency in modern people, who are in dire need of supplements.
In facing the steady rise of cancer incidences, Dr. Morishita emphasized that cancer is the final outcome of various chronic diseases, and animal food products (meat, egg, milk), refined white foods (white rice, white flour, white sugar) are the most direct conditions for producing pathological changes. If every household is still faithfully eating these carcinogenic foods as before, then a decrease in cancer incidence rate would truly be inconceivable!
In Japan, one in every three persons suffers from skin allergy, with especially high incidence among children. The root cause lies in over consumption of animal food products. Digestive enzymes in children are lesser than adults and their intestinal mucosa have yet matured enough, causing injury to be greater. A constitution prone to allergy is often prone to cancer. Total change in diet in order to improve the body constitution is an imperative solution.
In the pervasive culture of social competitiveness between oneself and others, many people contract illnesses of the stomach and intestines, which are also known as ‘stress-related illnesses’. Gastrointestinal diseases allude to the Chinese saying, “Illnesses have origins in what goes into our mouths”. Unnatural diet damages stomachs and intestines directly, while at the same time, contaminates the blood. Various pressures from unnatural diet injure the internal organs, resulting in dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system. Under these serious wounding, if one still insists on worshipping animal source foods (meat, egg, milk), the consequences would be unimaginable. Increasingly, younger people are suffering from gout due to over-nutrition and over-burdening of bodily organs. This has been a consistent warning sign.
Animal source foods and refined white foods cause abnormal metabolism of body uric acid. Excess from that which cannot be completely excreted gets deposited under the skin and in the joints. Out of self-defence, the body tries to get rid of these excess deposits that are obstructing the movements of the joints; henceforth, inflammation and joint pain occurs. If one does not strictly abstain from meat or change one’s diet, one can expect obvious joint distortion and dysfunction. At the same time, kidneys which share 2-thirds of the work in excreting uric acid, face increased burden, leading to greater health crises.
In pharmacies in Japan, the best selling drug is painkillers for headaches. Pain is the most real alarm mechanism for the start of health problems. Once pain arises, it is most important to become aware of its root causes and then work on improvement. If the conditions for the pain ceases, naturally the pain would go off. Regardless of whether it is lesion headaches, temporary headaches or chronic ones, crazed consumption of pain killers not only numb the body, stop the pain temporarily, but will also damage the body’s nature due to increased dependence on the drugs, resulting in the obstruction of the gastrointestinal functions. Long term usage would also weaken the liver’s detoxification function, affecting the kidneys and bone marrows. There is no doubt about the harm inflicted upon the body. It is as if when the fire alarm goes off, instead of checking for the source of the fire, we just turn off the alarm and make believe that all is well already. If one wishes for a full cure, then the key is still in the diet. With the aid of a brown rice vegetarian diet, one can remove the accumulating toxins in the body, strengthen the body’s metabolism, purify the blood and improve the body physique. One should also pay attention on how one copes with pressure to avoid an imbalance in the autonomic nervous system, from which the origin of pain can be eradicated.
Cancer – the disease that is feared by all when mentioned, is not really “incurable”, as so believed. It is just an extension of all other illnesses, and is not special. Like all other ailments, with appropriate treatment, the possibility of recovery definitely exists. Modern medicine regards cancer as devil, hence much extremely aggressive treatment methods like surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and so forth are used. Even if these treatments damage and remove part of the cancerous cells, they did not touch on the fundamental obstacle of the bodily functions, and improvement on problems like blood pollution and so forth. Thus, cancer recurrence and transfer rates are alarmingly high. Studies have shown that majority of the gastric cancer, breast cancer, uterine cancer and lung cancer patients prefer and enjoy animal source foods (like meat, eggs and milk) and almost all the patients consume refined white foods frequently (white rice, wheat flour and white sugar), as well as chemical seasonings. The greatest root cause to the production of cancer cells is blood contamination while the greatest cause to blood contamination is inappropriate diet and body-mind disharmony. The production of cancer cells due to the unnatural circumstances surrounding the body and blood pollution, is just a kind of notification and reminder to us. Contemplating upon this significance, not only is cancer not our enemies but a warning that we want to thank.
In face of current day massive propaganda and misguided information, it is every patient’s unavoidable personal journey to discern right information about cancer. This is also the key to recovery and healing. Speaking of diet, reduction on food intake or fasting is much effective to patients in the early stages. If the condition of the illness has developed to a certain stage, a brown rice vegetarian diet conforming to the human body natural design when implemented strictly, gradually purifies the blood, improves the physique and is the best way to recovery. At the same time, the stomach function of cancer patients is extremely weak. When dining, one must pay attention to fine chewing and slow swallowing, to stimulate the secretion of saliva. The digestive enzymes from the saliva are much better than any pharmaceutical digestive medication in the market.
Normally, whenever the body has any uncomfortable disposition or illness, we would habitually head towards the hospital. For mild cases, medication is given for outpatients while diagnoses of serious ones are treated with surgery and hospitalization. During these processes, much medication is used. Sometimes when illnesses or pain is slightly relieved, one would erroneously believe in the illusion that the illness is cured by the medicine. Can chemical medication really bring about full cure? Or is it just temporary numbing? Do we want complete healing or just temporary relief?
When the siren of the alarm sounds, let us swiftly locate the fire venue, put out the fire, relieve the disaster and walk towards health, instead of switching the alarm siren off through every means, and suffer the eventual spread of problems in blind faith.
