Adapting to Toxic Processed Foods, Article by Matt Monarch
The following information is for education only and is not meant to diagnose, prescribe, or treat illness. It is valuable to seek the advice of an alternative health care professional before making any changes.
Many people in the Raw Food World know my story… around 13 years ago, I JUMPED into a 100% Raw Food Diet OVERNIGHT, after reading Dr. Norman Walker’s book, ‘Become Younger‘. While that story is certainly true, there is also a longer version of the story, which I am going to share here now
Thirteen years ago I was working in New York City at MTV Networks, in the middle of Times Square. I’ve always had a habit of ‘looking up to’ and learning from the successful people who are around in my life. Accordingly, I stumbled across Joe Devito, the ‘cool dude’ at MTV Networks. I always thought that I had a healthy diet until I found myself sitting down in Joe’s office as he dissected my diet, trying to show me that it wasn’t nearly as healthy as it could be. Joe was no raw foodist, but knew of these concepts, because his older brother Tom Devito was one of the top colon hydrotherapists in NYC.
I was a young impressionable guy and wanted to learn as much as I could, so I listened to Joe’s advice. His guidance mainly consisted of eliminating bread, eating lettuce with each meal and eliminating all refined sugar. At that point I still didn’t even know a 100% Raw Food Diet existed, so I took him up on his advice and ate as he suggested for the next two months.
After those two months, I happened to be working on the set of the VH1 Divas Awards Show. MTV was providing Subway sandwiches and pizza for all of us workers on site at the show… I used to eat Subway sandwiches ALL THE TIME and so on this occasion I saw no problem with having a quarter of a foot-long, along with the SMALLEST slice of pizza possible.
After I ate that small amount of food, I ended up in the bathroom PUKING ALL NIGHT LONG! I was totally PERPLEXED, to say the least! The next morning, I STOMPED into Joe’s office and said that I was NEVER going to eat the way he suggested, ever again!!!! Joe RACKED his brain and seemed to be very careful with his next move, trying to help me at that delicate moment. The ONLY thing that he could think of was to grab a book from his bookshelf behind him and give it to me. He had no personal answer for me and encouraged me to read this book that he handed me instead.
Yep! You guessed it! That book was ‘Become Younger’, by Dr. Norman Walker. I read that book overnight and went 100% Raw the next day, and I have never looked back ever since. Now that I’ve been on a 100% Raw Food Diet for around 13 years, I can’t even fathom the consequences that piece of Subway sandwich and small sliver of pizza would have on me now…
Those processed foods are truly toxic and damaging to the body. People who can handle those foods don’t have a ‘stronger’ system, they have simply adapted to eating these toxic substances. My mom just told me a story that was similar to my Subway/pizza incident, which actually sparked the idea for me to write this article.
A few days ago, my mom wrote me this:
Gosh, I ate without thinking at the John Wooden Awards Show that we are invited to and I had a small glass of wine and soon thereafter, 2 small choc. moose type pastries (those that come in cup cake papers, just so they can be picked up)….quite small. About 2 hours later, I had a full-blow hypo-glycemic attack (haven’t had one in decades). I was exhausted, also. Had to lie down across several chairs and drink water. I had had some protein, too, but it didn’t click in in time to prevent my error.
That won’t happen again!
Love you! Love to Gela!
My mom has been eating a whole food diet without any processed foods for many years now. These toxic processed foods she ate recrently then had this clear adverse effect on my mom’s body. It’s not that her body has become weaker. She became STRONGER. If you saw my mom before and after her improved diet, you will know what I am talking about. She has more energy and looks healthier that she has in years. My mom doesn’t have ANY health issues and is on ZERO pharmaceutical drugs. Now if you compare her to most other people her age who can handle these processed foods, you will probably see a noticeable low energy quality to those other people, plus you’ll probably find a grip-load of pharmaceuticals in their cabinets.
We are not designed to eat these toxic processed foods, just as we are not designed to consume arsenic, which would kill us in minutes if we consumed even a teaspoon of it. However, if you were to take a drop of arsenic and increase the dosage as time goes on, you may eventually be able to handle that teaspoon of arsenic without a problem, since you will have adapted to it. If you were to adapt to arsenic like this, it would most likely affect your health and you wouldn’t live as long. It is the same exact thing with these toxic processed foods. You can adapt to eating them, but it will be at the expense of your health in the long-run. In the words of Herbert Shelton:
“Toleration to poisons is merely a slow method of dying. Instead of seeing in the phenomena of toleration something to be sought after, it is something to seek to avoid the necessity for.” –Herbert Shelton
Free Interview w/Conscious Birthing Expert Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova
We JUST concluded this interview with Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova. Is the birthing process something to be feared? I think not! In this interview you will learn that during birth, oxytocin is produced at a level more than 1000 times that of any other human process. I do have to say that there was a lot of conscious sex talk in amongst all of this Natural Birthing and Parenting information. This is an interview that you don’t want to miss. You can either listen or download the 1.5 hour interview at the link below. Enjoy.
I am really excited about these new Peruvian Pitted Olives with Celtic Sea Salt. The reason why I LOVE them so much is because I like my foods to be simple. The only other ingredient besides the olives is Celtic sea salt! That’s it! Also, they are pitted, so you can just throw them into a salad. Love it! Although all of the olives we have taste incredible and the ingredients are pretty simple overall, these Celtic sea salt olives just totally do the trick for ME
Zack LOVES It!!!
Zack has been ITCHING to get these sprouted crackers on our website for AGES now!!! It use to be our policy that Angela and I BOTH had to taste and approve food products for our website. Not until LAST WEEK did I finally realize that this would be impractical if living in Ecuador for six months of the year. What better solution than having two people whom Angela and I trust implicitly to take on this task? In my opinion, there are no other two people better suited for this task than Zack and his lovely fiancee’ Alara (another head manager, 100% Raw Foodist at The Raw Food World)
Before we handed this task of trying new products and adding them to the site over to Zack, he was literally BEGGING me to put these sprouted crackers up on the website. You guys… SERIOUSLY… BEGGING ME! Zack, Alara, Lindsey and EVERYONE in the shipping department said that these are the best flax and seed crackers that they have ever had!
So, we got all four flavors of these sprouted crackers, which includes:
Coconut Curry – A Gluten-Free cracker bold enough to go with any Curry dish.
Pesto Pumpkinseed – When dinner isn’t complete without a slice of garlic bread.
Sunny Garden Herb – Making a salad a truly satisfying meal.
Caraway Crisps – Finally an answer to full-bodied rye bread flavor.DMSO (99.9% Pure), 8oz (In Glass Jar)
We finally found DMSO in a GLASS container! I feel like I can’t say enough about the wonders of DMSO. I found out first-hand about this amazing product when I utilized it to heal my body from Canine Scabies (you can learn more about that crazy situation by clicking HERE). Thousands of other people have used DMSO in conjunction with MMS to reverse many issues. DMSO acts as a courier into the bloodstream, carrying along anything you apply with it. Be sure that your skin is clean before utilizing this product, otherwise it can also bring unwanted stuff into the body too.
Gaia’s Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture
I am SO excited to say that growing your own food WORKS! I just recently witnessed this amazing phenomenon FIRST HAND. Yesterday for the first time, I witnessed HUNDREDS of tiny little seeds that Angela and I planted, coming up from the ground!!! “Gaia’s Garden” is one of the books that Angela started reading before beginning our own garden. She absolutely LOVES this book and says it is a really easy-to-read overview of natural/permaculture/food forest gardening techniques.
Check out the video below of us excited as can be as we witness our first baby shoots of food grow up from the ground!
Supercharge Me: 30 Days of Raw DVDSupercharge Me: 30 Days of Raw, DVDOur dear friend Jenna Norwood created an awesome DVD called Supercharge Me. It has won many awards and we are excited to finally get it on our website!
Ever wonder what the opposite of the film “Super Size Me” would be like? With a tip of the headdress to Morgan Spurlock of “Super Size Me,” Jenna Norwood takes us on her journey to see what happens when she enrolls in a raw food detox center and consumes only organic, raw, enzyme-rich foods for 30 days. It’s all in an effort to fit into a Las Vegas showgirl costume for Halloween, but the experience has some surprising results. Meet experts (David Wolfe), celebrities (Ben Vereen & Kathy Sledge) and others seeking to resolve serious health issues on a raw food diet.
Takes the mystery out of colon hydrotherapy, too. An entertaining, educational and inspiring documentary. A detoxifying experience! Unofficial PG rating, according to MPAA guidelines.
