Food combining

"Correctly combining foods makes all the difference in the world to proper digestion,

cholesterol and metabolism. Without complete digestion, the nutrients in even the most

wholesome food cannot be fully extracted and assimilated by the body.

Moreover, incomplete digestion and inefficient metabolism are the prime causes of fat

and cholesterol accumulation in the body. Beat cholesterolA low calorie diet of overcooked,

processed and improperly combined foods will still make you fat and leave sticky deposits

in your arteries, just as the wrong mix of fuels will leave carbon deposits on the spark

plugs of an engine, clog the pistons, and create foul gaseous exhaust."

Daniel Reid a living Tao Master reminds us that "the various forms of heart disease are

primarily the result of toxic impurities clogging blood vessels. This deprives the heart

muscles and valves of oxygen and puts excessive chronic strain on the heart, which has to

pump much harder than normal to push blood through a clogged circulatory system- a

healthy heart pumps about 3,000 gallons of blood every 24 hours, but a heart under the

stress of a clogged circulatory system must pump up to 25,000 gallons in 24 hours just to

maintain sufficient circulation; obviously, such an 8-fold increase in heart strain soon

eads to heart exhaustion and disease. The prime source of the blood impurities and deposits

that cause heart disease is a diet composed entirely of denatured and cooked foods."


"It is an established scientific fact in Western medicine that in order to initiate

efficient digestion of any concentrated animal protein, the stomach must secrete pepsin.

ut it is also a well-known fact that pepsin can function only in a highly acidic medium,

which must be maintained for several hours for complete digestion of proteins.

It is an equally well established fact of science that when we chew a piece of bread or

potato or any other carbohydrate/starch, ptyalin and other alkaline juices are immediately

secreted into the food by the saliva in the mouth. When swallowed, the alkalized starches

require an alkaline medium in the stomach in order to complete digestion.

Anyone should be able to figure out what therefore happens when you ingest protein and

starch together. Acid and alkaline juices are secreted simultaneously in response to the

incoming protein and starch, promptly neutralizing one another and leaving a weak, watery

solution in the stomach that digests neither protein or starch properly. Instead proteins

putrefy and starches ferment owing to the constant presence of bacteria in the digestive


This putrefaction and fermentation are the primary cause of all sorts of digestive stress,

including gas, heartburn, cramps, bloating, constipation, foul stools,bleeding piles,

colitis, and so forth.

Many so called 'allergies' are also the direct result of improper food combinations;

the bloodstream picks up toxins from the putrefied, fermented mess as it passes slowly

through the intestines, and these toxins in turn cause rashes, hives, headaches, nausea

and other symptoms commonly branded as allergies. The same foods that cause allergic

reactions when improperly combines often have no ill side-effects whatsoever when consumed

according to the rules of trophology. The final fact of the matter is this:

when you immobilize your stomach and impair digestive functions by consuming foods in

indiscriminate combination, the bacteria in your alimentary canal have a field day.

They get all the nutrients and thrive, while you get all the wastes and suffer.

According to a recent survey in America, the average American male today carries about

5 pounds of undigested, putrefied red meat in his gut. Leave 5 pounds ofmeat in a dark,

warm, moist place for a few days and see for yourself the results of putrefaction.

The severely septic condition of the human intestinal tract is unique in nature, yet

Western physicians take it for granted and even insist that it is harmless to the rest of

the system.

In fact, in order to protect itself from the chronic toxic irritation of improperly

combined meals, the colon secretes large quantities of mucus to entrap toxic particles

before they damage the colon's sensitive lining. When this occurs at every meal, everyday,

every week, throughout the year- as is quite typical in modern Western diets- the colon

ends up secreting a constant stream of mucus, which accumulates and gets impacted in the

folds of the colon. This results in a narrowing of the passage through the colon and a

constant seeping of toxins into the bloodstream by osmosis. When the impacting of toxic

mucus in the colon reaches critical pressure, it causes a pocket to balloon outward

through the colon lining, causing a condition called diverticulosis. Colitis, IBS, and

colon cancer are the next stages of colon deterioration caused by these conditions."
