A Happy Client
A few months ago, a young lady came to me, seeking energy healing. She was anxious all the time. Her stomach could barely handle any food. She got tired easily. She was so weak that she was barely able to get around or do housework.
Like most of my clients, she had tried many treatment options, from Western medicine to other holistic modalities. She came to me as a last resort.
I worked on stabilizing her energies while guiding her to slowly make adjustments to her diet. Within a few months’ time, she was able to feel normal, in a way she hadn’t in years.
My Take on Diets
Years ago, I avoided talking to my clients about diet. As an energy healer, I restricted my work to balancing the body’s energies.
However, I’ve seen many cases of ‘untreatable diseases’ resulting from diet mishaps (on top of other, myriad causes), and my mind changed on the topic. Over time, I realized that this is the #1 diet mistake that nobody talks about.
The Impact of Raw Food on Your Body
When clients who rejected almost all food started showing up in my office, I was puzzled. It sent me on a wide
research about stomach indigestion.
Finally, I came upon an article from Chinese Medicine that said raw food is good for detoxification and cooked food is good for nourishment. That got me taking a second look at the digestive system.
Your stomach’s job is to process your ingested food and break it down into nutrients. You can think of it as a compost bin. A compost bin needs to be at a certain temperature to break down twigs and garden waste. The same thing goes for your stomach.
Too much raw food in your stomach weakens its ability to digest food. What’s worse, according to Chinese Medicine, it eventually weakens your spleen, your stomach’s earth partner.
When your spleen meridian is weakened, you have a compromised immune system. In addition, your mind tends to spin out of control. As a result, your sleep becomes challenged.
This is often when people restrict their diet to mostly raw foods, because they feel it’s easier on their digestive system. That might be the case, yet it exerts a big toll on their overall health. It creates a vicious cycle.
Your Action Plan
If you’re experiencing a health challenge, you might want to take a look at how much raw food you eat compared to cooked food. Balance out the nutritional value of the raw food with the tax on your digestive system.
If you’ve been sick for a while, you might want to work with a qualified practitioner to adjust your diet VERY slowly and balance your energies at the same time.
Finding the right balance for your body is key because every body is different.
