What is a vegan raw diet, and how it may improve your health?

vegan raw diet

Allo­path­ic med­i­cine rec­og­nizes that only 0.3% of the ther­mal­ly processed food digest­ed ben­e­fits our sys­tems. At the same time, all the rest is waste that does more harm than good.

What is a raw food diet? Also known as raw food­ism or raw veg­an­ism means con­sum­ing whol­ly raw and unprocessed foods. Food could be con­sid­ered raw if it has nev­er been heat­ed over 104–118°F (40–48°C). It should also not be refined, pas­teur­ized, treat­ed with pes­ti­cides, or oth­er­wise processed in any way.

With Raw food, you increase absorp­tion capac­i­ty sig­nif­i­cant­ly, and your body can absorb 30% of your raw food. No won­der raw food has all the vit­a­mins, min­er­als, and enzymes in pure form, which are per­fect­ly compatible.

What is Happening Inside Your Frying Pan?

what is is happening inside of frying panUsu­al­ly, we get used to our life that we often do not even think about the mean­ing of what we do dai­ly. But, look­ing more close­ly into things, we can see spe­cif­ic mean­ings. For exam­ple, diges­tion in our bod­ies and cook­ing on the stove are two dif­fer­ent process­es, even though it is com­mon to think that these two are sim­i­lar process­es and that cooked food some­how helps to digest. Nature has not pro­vid­ed kitchens, so it is wise to mis­trust them and not con­sid­er them entire­ly harmless.

Every­one knows that vit­a­mins and enzymes get bro­ken down dur­ing heat­ing food. How­ev­er, not many peo­ple have heard that new harm­ful ele­ments are cre­at­ed inside saucepans and fry­ing pans.

There is an excel­lent vari­ety of food sub­stances; the world of organ­ic mol­e­cules is infi­nite. But most of them are very sen­si­tive to exter­nal con­di­tions and high­er tem­per­a­tures. They get cre­at­ed and can live only in live cells of plants and ani­mals at typ­i­cal body/environment tem­per­a­tures, i.e., approx­i­mate­ly 0 to + 45 degrees. Nature made diges­tion sys­tems of all liv­ing crea­tures to these sub­stances at those tem­per­a­tures, and our ancient ances­tors ate such food with­out cook­ing by heat­ing. How­ev­er, some time ago, peo­ple began to heat their foods barbarously.

The Actual Chemistry Inside Frying Pan

In the saucepans, food tem­per­a­ture in the pres­ence of water reach­es 100 degrees, and inside fry­ing pans and fur­naces, it ris­es to 200 hun­dred and above. At such tem­per­a­tures, the mol­e­cules and most chem­i­cal bonds are bro­ken off inside a com­plex food, and the active and most bio­log­i­cal­ly valu­able sub­stances are also bro­ken down. In addi­tion, oxy­gen or ions of oth­er turned mol­e­cules increase the neg­a­tive chem­i­cal process. The dis­in­te­gra­tion of mol­e­cules and recom­bin­ing of the turned-out ions are very harm­ful when mixed with foods. A typ­i­cal exam­ple of such mix­es is rich soups. Water pres­ence adds a still destruc­tive effect of hydrolysis.

As a result of these process­es not pro­vid­ed by nature,  new sub­stances alien to ini­tial foods are formed, i.e., the chem­i­cal com­po­si­tion of food changes. For this rea­son, food changes its orig­i­nal smell, taste, and even its appear­ance. In oth­er words, valu­able food sub­stances get dam­aged inside saucepans and fry­ing pans, and a set of new sub­stances alien to nature and the human body takes place. Build­ing up inside human bod­ies, they intox­i­cate an inter­nal envi­ron­ment and trig­ger var­i­ous health issues. Maybe this is a time to recon­sid­er the approach to the lifestyle we lead and the food we eat.

Hunza people who eat only raw food live until the age of 140–160

An ancient Hun­za tribe lives in a remote Himalayan val­ley in Kash­mir, who believe they are ances­tors of Alexan­der Make­don­sky’s sol­diers. Hun­za peo­ple live until the age of 140–160.  Ill­ness­es that affect mod­ern human soci­ety are not known to the Hun­za peo­ple. Even such com­mon issues as toothache or lousy eye­sight are unknown to them, even though many near­by com­mu­ni­ties suf­fer from tuber­cu­lo­sis, typhoid, hyper­ten­sion, and diabetes.

Not long ago, one of the Euro­pean mis­sion­ar­ies decid­ed to build a hos­pi­tal for the Hun­za peo­ple but was very sur­prised to see no patients for weeks and months. He researched the phe­nom­e­non and con­clud­ed that Hun­za peo­ple lead an ide­al style of life when peo­ple are healthy, hap­py, and do not age. At 50–60, peo­ple are still con­sid­ered to be young; they are full of ener­gy, look like 20-year-olds, and even start fam­i­lies when peo­ple of West­ern soci­ety retire.

The secret of the health and longevi­ty of the Hun­za lies in the way they eat, which is raised to the rank of reli­gion and nation­al pride. Here is, for instance, a typ­i­cal Hun­za bread recipe: wheat grains ground in a stone mor­tar into flour with­out yeast, then mixed with water. The dough is shaped like pan­cakes and dried on the walls of their hous­es under the sun. All the nutri­ents remain inside the bread.

Men are still play­ing out­door games at the age of one hun­dred, and women at 60–70 have chil­dren. Accord­ing to the sci­en­tists who stud­ied the life of Hun­za, they eat only raw fruits, main­ly apri­cots. Dur­ing win­ter, they eat dried fruits. Apri­cots there is the most hon­or­able fruit. In the tribe, there is a say­ing: Your wife will not fol­low you where no apri­cots grow.

Their raw diet can only explain their phys­i­cal and spir­i­tu­al well-being. The veg­an raw diet is the only thing dis­tin­guish­ing them from the neigh­bor­ing peo­ples liv­ing under the same envi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions and not as healthy as Hunza.
