"Why Certain Eating Habits go Unnoticed", Article & Video 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.

I often share information about my personal "healthy lifestyle" habits; some of these habits include not drinking liquid with food, waiting for a meal to digest completely before eating again, not eating spices, and so on. Sometimes, people hear me speaking about these habits and state that they don't practice all of these habits and yet they don't have any health issues whatsoever. I am happy to hear this; I believe what they are saying and feel that they are probably still on an ideal path for their own journey, even if they don't follow the exact same habits as I do.

Please note: this article is based on anecdotal information and personal experience...

Let me explain why I think these people may not feel digestive discomfort, even though they don't practice some of the habits I mentioned above.

If we take the average of ALL of our daily consumption and detox habits into consideration, we can more or less determine the average amount of toxicity we intake on a daily basis. Our consumption habits include things such as the kind of foods we eat, the air we breathe, any alcohol we drink, any stress we experience (adrenalin), any drugs we consume, any stimulants we intake, and so on. Our detox habits include things such as how much we exercise, the frequency of our bowel movements, how often we cleanse our colons, how much we sweat, etc. If you consider the daily average of all of your consumption habits and "subtract" the releasing effects of all of your detox habits, you can get an idea of the level of toxicity that your body is managing on an average day.

For example, a person may eat burgers and fries at a fast food restaurant every day, generating a mass of fermentation and toxicity in the body. This person also may run five miles a day, which helps to release a reasonable amount of toxicity through sweat, plus the exercising also has the potential to increase the regularity of bowel movements. If you compare this person to someone else who eats the same amount of "junk food" every single day, yet doesn't exercise at all, then the amount of toxicity that is in their body on an average day will be more than the person who exercises.

If you consider the daily averages of ALL of your consumption habits and detox habits, you can get an idea of the amount of toxicity in your body on a daily basis, and if you want to, you can then compare this picture with other peoples' habits.

Each consumption habit that we have results in a specific amount of toxicity in our bodies. Some habits create more toxicity within the body than others. For example, eating some steamed quinoa generates less toxicity than eating a fast food hamburger. Another contrasting example might be that eating a salad before your first whole food meal has completely digested still generates less toxicity than eating two peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on white bread along with three chocolate chip cookies for dessert.

If a person consistently practices certain habits that generate lots of toxicity within their body (like the PB&J sandwiches & cookies), then the impact of any other habits they practice that create smaller amounts of toxicity within the body (e.g. overlapping whole food meals), will most likely go unnoticed. For example, if someone eats fast food hamburgers on a daily basis and then one day eats a whole food meal instead, followed by a healthy salad before that whole food meal had digested, this pattern of overlapping a second meal before their previous meal has digested would still create less toxicity for this person than their usual burger meals. Although it would give me extreme digestive discomfort if I ate a second meal before another meal had digested, someone else may actually still feel better after eating in this way, because the OVERALL amount of resulting toxicity in their body after overlapping meals is less than the total amount that they would normally experience after eating fast food burger meals; it is all relative. Hence, for someone in this position, the "toxicity"/fermentation impact of overlapping a whole foods meal with a salad will go unnoticed in comparison to their usual experiences, and they will actually feel better overall, due to feeling less toxicity in their body.

I almost NEVER drink liquids alongside meals, nor do I eat a second meal before a first meal is digested. I only eat raw whole foods, with zero processed/packaged foods. My raw food meals generate less toxicity/fermentation within my body than if I ate a raw food meal with liquid or I ate a second raw meal before my first meal digested. Therefore, if I were to take on these habits of overlapping meals or drinking liquids with food, it would generate MORE toxicity within my body than I normally experience on an average day. Although in the example above, the person eating fast food burgers will actually feel better when overlapping healthy foods, in my case, I would actually feel worse. For the fast foodie, his total toxicity level would be lowered by overlapping some healthy meals, whereas my toxicity level would rise.

Many of you have probably experienced this pattern yourselves in some way. For example, in previous years, you may have gone to fast food restaurants with your friends on countless occasions. Since then, you may have improved your diet to eating only whole foods, or something close to that. NOW, when you consider eating those old fast food choices that you used to eat, you may cringe, knowing that if you ate those things these days, you would not feel good at all and may even get sick.

You personally may find that you do not sense any digestive discomfort if you drink liquids alongside foods, or overlap meals... AND... your "fast food friends" may also not sense any digestive discomfort when they eat chocolate chip cookies with milk, yet that would make your stomach TUURRNN... it is all relative!

If the toxicity generated within one person's body from certain consumption habits results in LESS than the daily average of toxicity they experience, then those consumption habits will most likely go unnoticed in terms of feeling 'disruptive' for that person, even if for someone else these habits may feel uncomfortable. Another example could be food combining. Some people seem to be able to combine food ANY WAY THEY WANT, and have no digestive discomfort, while others couldn't even think about eating in that way. For those people who don't practice food combining principles and yet have no digestive discomfort, we could conclude that for them, the toxicity generated from not food combining is LESS than, or equal to, the average toxicity that they experience on a daily basis.

There is no "right" or "wrong" here - we all have different systems and different levels of toxicity in our bodies. In my experience, as we embark on a path of healthier eating, our average daily toxicity levels decrease and over time our bodies require less food and less toxicity to feel optimal.

    New Products at The Raw Food World

    Eleuthero Extract Powder (Siberian Ginseng)
    Eleuthero root, also known as Siberian Ginseng, is a supreme adaptogenic herb that also enhances physical and mental endurance. It nourishes the kidneys and is beneficial for anyone experiencing general weakness or lack of vitality. It is a favorite herb of athletes as it enhances oxygenation, metabolism and circulation of blood.

    Eleutherococcus senticosus has a positive effect on the metabolic state through maintenance of normal glucocorticoid activity of the adrenal glands and increased brain catecholamine neurotransmitter formation, both important for energy production and motivation of physical activity. This herb is well known as an adaptogen to help with better withstanding stress during adverse conditions. The adrenal gland becomes exhausted during periods of chronic stress leading to reduced output of hormones. Siberian Ginseng reduces the adverse effects of chronic stress on the adrenal glands, helping to preserve their healthy function.

    Lycium Extract Powder (Goji Berry)
    Jing Herbs uses a water-extracted process that utilizes a low temperature, high pressure system, which maximizes both flavor and bio-nutrient content of this Goji Berry Extract. Lycium Fruit has a long history of being one of the greatest longevity tonics from the East. It is a Yin Essence restorative herb that brightens and strengthens the eyes, supports immune function, builds sexual fluids, creates cheerfulness, supports the legs, and enhances sexual function. Lycium nourishes and tonifies the Liver and Kidneys, enriches the Yin and moistens the Lungs, and mildly augments the Kidney Yang, making it a favorite for the sexually active. It is a must herb for anyone seeking a long, happy, and healthy life.

    As an immune system tonic, Lycium has a polysaccharide-protein complex that may induce immune response through supporting the production of cytokine. Lycium also protects cells from free radical damage with its antioxidant properties. Its ability to build blood also makes it an anti-aging beauty tonic revered the world over.

    Zack Likes It!!! ;-)
    As you may recall, we recently had a section in our Newsletter called 'Zack Likes It!'. Zachary Wood is the main business manager of The Raw Food World. While Angela and I are in Ecuador, Zack is the MAIN man in charge. He is one of the main reasons our company, 'The Raw Food World', runs SO SMOOTHLY. Zack came to The Raw Food World at the PERFECT time in his life. I remember his first day at work when he told me that he had quit smoking eight months previously. Since then, he fell in love with our OTHER main business manager, who is in charge of the customer service department: the lovely Alara Tiernan. Since joining us, Zack has pretty much been on a Raw Food Diet, for ALMOST two years now.

    Zack has been a HUGE help in sourcing and bringing in NEW products to The Raw Food World. For example, we've been looking for a really good raw HOT sauce for MONTHS now. Zack is the one who found those raw HOT Sauces that appeared in last week's Newsletter. He is also the person behind sourcing many of the other products that we bring in.

    Many months ago, when Angela and I were in the States at one point, someone sent us about SIX Raw Chocolate MACA bars that they had made, as a gift. Everyone at The Raw Food World headquarters went CRAZY over these bars. We KNEW that this combination of maca with raw chocolate was a PERFECT taste for chocolate lovers. Since then, we've been looking to find a really good Raw Chocolate MACA bar. Well, I don't know how Zack does it!... But... MANY months later, Zack just found Lulu's Raw Chocolate Maca Bars! If you like maca in chocolate like Zack and I do, then these may just be the BEST Raw Chocolate Bars in existence!

    We've got TWO Raw Chocolate Maca Bars to offer now, and they are called:

  • Lulu's Chocolate Maca Chunk Bar
  • Lulu's Maca Love Bar

    The DIFFERENCE between these two is that the Maca Chunk Bar has MORE maca than the Maca Love Bar! The primary flavor in the Maca Chunk Bar is the MACA, where the chocolate (in Zack's words) "is the avenue by which we can transport the maca into the GLORIOUS DEPTHS OF OUR ESSENCE". The Maca Love Bar on the other hand fulfills the desires for both maca and chocolate equally. The maca is present but less prevalent than in the "Chunk" Bar, allowing for one to enjoy the chocolate more thoroughly as well.

    A NEAR PERFECT MARRIAGE OF THE TWO!

    Please understand that Zack is CRAZY about Maca... I quote his email to me verbatim below:

    I want to take a BATH in Maca, Matt. I can't tell you what Maca does for me flavor wise. It's like......... Crack.... If I had ever done it, this is what I would imagine it to be like.

    It's actually kind of crazy, and I have no explanation for it. But I love it when the packers put a busted Maca bag in my hands because I get to smell it! ;-))) The SMELL.... the taste..... seriously..... absolutely NO understanding of my reaction to it.


    Sun Warrior Immune Shield
    Those Sun Warrior guys just keep on taking things to the NEXT level. They first brought us their RIDICULOUSLY POWERFUL 'Ormus Greens' Super Green Food... AND NOW... they are messing around with Fulvic Acid ;-)

    Immune Shield is a natural fulvic acid mineral complex, fortified with silver ions. The fulvic acid/mineral complex is a catalyst and chelater, which delivers trace minerals, various nutrients, and electrolytes freely to all of the cells and body fluids. This fulvic acid mineral complex has uniquely been fortified with silver ions.

    The presence of small ions of silver placed by a proprietary technology within these fulvic mineral complex molecules provides a revolutionary form of silver to assist the immune system. These molecules provide a new and more efficient delivery system to safely provide silver ions in higher amounts (over 25 ppm) without the danger of building up excessive amounts of silver particles within the body tissues that could result in argyria. This fortified fulvic molecule takes the potential of a solution containing silver ions to a whole new level

    Wicked Chili Almonds - Living Nutz

    These raw food nuts are not roasted or baked! They are germinated (sprouted), then marinated and dehydrated slowly at low temps for up to five days, to maintain optimal nutrition, digestion, and flavor!

  • Sprouts, by Kathleen O'Bannon

    Sprouts, by Kathleen O'Bannon
    People frequently try to tell Angela and I that eating 100% raw is "way TOO expensive". In our opinion, this DEFINITELY does not need to be true. When someone says this, one of the suggestions we recommend is to grow your own sprouts at home, which is a very inexpensive way to ensure you have fresh live greens on hand all year-round. ADDITIONALLY!!!, sprouts are an IDEAL superfood in their natural form. They are ALIVE with enzymes and avilable nutrition, and have not been dried or processed in ANY Way! We carry a WIDE ARRAY of Sprouting Seeds at very low costs compared to the volume of food these seeds can generate. We also have this new sprouting book by Kathleen O'Bannon, along with many other books on this topic.

    This new book discusses how sprouts are packed with a concentration of nutrients, enzymes, minerals and vitamins. Learn how to buy sprouting seeds, grow delicious sprouts of many varieties, and prepare meals with healthful, life-giving sprouts. Includes recipes illustrated with full-color photos.

    AAAAAAAAND... Many More New Products COMING SOON!!!

    Decembers 'At-Cost' Specials

    We've got some AWESOME 'At-Cost' Specials for December, ripe for the Holiday season! There are great gift ideas and we also have the perfect ingredients for making Holiday meals :-)

    We now carry EVERY SINGLE COLOR of the QBC Pendants :-) I had never really believed in the "HYPE" about different types of pendants you can wear to combat external "invisible evils", such as EMFs, until I experienced these Quantum Balance Crystal Pendants for myself. Actually, it wasn't until the creators of these QBC pendants came over to our shipping department and showed us fascinating evidence of their "MAGICAL" qualities that the concept really made sense for me. In the video below, at the point where they showed us before and after pictures of their auras, we were really blown away.

    These pendants are made from Quartz Crystal broken down into a tiny "NANO" microscopic form. The bigger pieces of crystal that are visible in these pendants are pretty much just there for show, while the NANO-Crystal Technology is where the real "magic" is held. In actuality, the quartz crystals are broken down even beyond the Nano size in these pendants and can help strongly affect our energy fields...

    Another GREAT gift idea that we have 'At-Cost' for the holidays is our Certified Organic Jojoba Oil in a glass jar. This is the BEST and most PURE jojoba oil that I have ever come across. It is also in a beautiful GLASS JAR to avoid leaching and any possible degradation of the oil. Due to the supreme quality of this oil and the beautiful packaging, we feel that this is an AWESOME gift idea for the Holidays... AND... you can get this oil 'At-Cost' this month :-) This Jojoba Oil is Certified Organic by CCOF. This particular Jojoba Oil is cared for from the field to the bottle, which is located near the southeast boundary of Joshua Tree National Park. The producers go to GREAT lengths to assure a pure quality product.

    We've also got some IDEAL ingredients for preparing your Holiday feasts, such as Irish Moss, the TOP THREE selling Flavored Extracts, Vanilla Powder, Cashews, Tocotrienals and Parma (cheese replacement). Irish Moss GELS up and is used by many famous Raw Food Chefs to make their pies the PERFECT consistency. We have a video HERE on YouTube about HOW to use Irish Moss. Cashews are another IDEAL filling for MANY yummy raw food desserts and we also have Vanilla Powder and the MAGICAL Flavor Extracts to take the flavor of your raw desserts to the NEXT levels. Parma is a superb "cheesey" salad topping and people have been using Tocotrienals to make their creations creamy, smooth and extra nutrient-rich.

    We've also got Laughing Giraffe's Snakaroons available 'At-Cost' for December. Many of you already know how RIDICULOUSLY good these Snakaroons are. However, what you may NOT know is that they just came out with two new INCREDIBLE flavors, which we feel are even better than the CRAZY GOOD original ones!!! You can check out these New "Laughing Giraffe" Snakaroons in the New Products section below. Even though they are a BRAND NEW product, we are offering all THREE flavors of the Snakaroons at a discounted special for December. We feel these would also make great gifts or even offerings to put out as desserts during the Holidays ;-) Even non-raw foodies LOVE these sweet treats!
