Benefits of Plant-based Eating

Healing has to be consistent with life itself. If it isn’t, then it is not healing. The components have to be from life

Dr. Sebi

In today’s society, it has become the norm to turn to Western medicine and treat our bodies with pills, vaccines, and pharmaceutical treatments in order to heal or prevent illness and disease. Although this has been the common route in today’s society for a while now, alternative medicine is starting to become more well-known, respected, and proven more effective. As Dr. Sebi stated in the quote above, in order to heal our bodies from disease (i.e., dis-ease) and in order to prevent dis-ease, we must treat our bodies in the most natural way possible so that it is congruent with life itself. Treating our bodies with man-made foods is inconsistent with what is known to be life and true health. Our bodies are capable of healing themselves when we feed it the appropriate nutrients and vitamins, and eliminate foods and pills that do not come from a natural source. Feeding ourselves animal-based foods, acidic and processed foods, and a low alkaline level diet can cause dis-ease and dis-comfort in the body, whether mildly (e.g., a cold/cough, allergies, body pains) or severely (e.g., diabetes, autoimmune disease). Why are we not typically informed about this; or why is the concept that we can heal the body and cure disease by diet and nutrition, not widely spread?

A society that keeps cures a secret so they can continue to sell medication for huge profits is not a real society but a huge mental asylum.

Plant-based foods include vegetables, fruits, whole grains, tubers (e.g., sweet potato, beets), and legumes. Plant-based diets have been proven to lower cholesterol, reverse and prevent illness and disease (e.g., heart disease, MS, etc.), reverse or lower risk of cancer, improve or cure inflammatory arthritis, increase energy, improve sleep, and much more. A diet full of animal-based products and processed foods contain many hormones, parasites, and chemicals that disrupt the harmonious flow our body is meant to obtain. A plant-based diet not only holds many physical benefits, but a variety of mental/emotional benefits as well. Plant-based eating increases mental clarity, increases intuitive abilities, eases anxiety/depression, and cleanses the entire emotional and spiritual body as a whole.

Forks Over Knives (Netflix documentary) asserts, “A diet high in animal-based and highly processed foods makes people sick and overweight. But many of these sicknesses can be prevented, halted, and often reversed by eating a whole-food, plant-based diet.”

Transitioning to a plant-based diet when you’ve been accustomed to acidic foods for most of your life can be a difficult route. Although the way we eat is often habitual and an accustomed lifestyle developed over time, it is also very common that we crave certain foods for mental stimulation (e.g., stress-eating, boredom). If this were the case, taking care of emotional imbalances (e.g., anxiety, depression) first, allows the transition to a healthier diet for our physical health to come easier. Utilizing goal-setting and motivation techniques can also make this transition smoother. Moreover, transitioning to a plant-based diet through fading techniques with the help of a coach who is competent in behavioral analysis, can make diet change very easy and effortless. As we take care of all aspects of our being (i.e., mental, physical, emotional, spiritual), we not only prevent and/or cure dis-ease and physical imbalances, but we also experience an overall increase in quality of life.
