Life is Amazing Part 2
I was doing a little more reading on the subject of foods that resemble different body parts. Actually the concept has been around since ancient times. The term " Doctrine of Signatures " was first used in the Renaissance period between 1493 and 1541. Simply stated if a food looks like a body part then it usually has a healing quality to it for that body part. So in essence you are what you eat. So eat well!
Every whole food has a pattern. The pattern in turn resembles a body part. Another term used is "Whole food signatures".
An example would be the eggplant, avocado, and pear. They all have the same shape so all three are going to help with the same body part. In this case they will target and help with the function and health of the female womb and cervix. Research has been extensively done on the avocado and how it helps woman. It shows that if a woman was to eat just one avocado a week it would be enough to balance hormones and in the case of after she gave birth it helps the body get rid of that extra birth weight. It has also been shown to help prevent cervical cancer. An interesting trivial fact - It takes exactly 9 months to grow an avocado from flower to the fruit that is ready to pick.
Sweet potatoes look very similar to our pancreas and can be seen actively balancing the glycemic index of diabetes.
Cut open an onion and you can see it looks like one of our body cells. Onions have been studied showing how they get rid of waste in the cells. They also cause us to cry which in turn washes the epithelial layer of the eyes.
In the Middle Ages peanuts were banned by the church because they had a definite effect on the male testicles and sexual libido. The majority of people now aren't aware that the arginine ( a basic amino acid) found in peanuts is the main component of the drug viagra.
If you were to take some almonds and soaked them in water for no less than 8 hours and no more than 72 hours. You will find they release a good quantity of the chemical amygdalin. The same thing produced in our brain.
There is a tiny part of the brain called the amygdala. It is the part of our brain that makes us different from other animals. The amygdala gives us the ability of imagination, creativity, and that wonderful sound of laughter.
You might beg to differ with me but my mind is convinced we live in a world designed for us. All these facts can't be coincidences.
Our world is composed of 75 percent water and 25 percent mass. Funnily enough so are we. In that 75 percent of water you will find 10 percent of fresh. It turns out it's the same with us. You'll notice when your sick or injured the first thing the medical staff do to help you is hook you up to a saline drip. We all know saline is salt.
Even herbs are included in this research. One example is Skullcap. The flowers resemble what they are named after. They are known to aid in the treatment of the brain and nervous system helping to control seizures and anxiety.
Well, I think I've exhausted this topic and hopefully not bored you too much and remember we are what we eat.
