Power of Food as Medicine
God created all the basic requirement that man needed before He created him, and among them the most important necessity is food. We, Human need all basic nutrients daily, to function our body correctly and properly.
The basic nutrients are – Carbohydrates, Protein, Fat, Vitamins, Minerals, Water. Since our physical activities are very less in this modern world, we need very fewer Carbohydrates and Fat.
Vitamins help to regulate chemical reactions in the body. There are 13 vitamins, including vitamins A, B complex, C, D, E, and K. Because most vitamins cannot be made in the body, we must obtain them through the diet. Many people say that they feel more energetic after consuming vitamins, but vitamins are not a source of energy (calories). Vitamins are best consumed through a varied diet rather than as a supplement.
Minerals are components of foods that are involved in many body functions. Like vitamins, minerals are not a source of energy and are best obtained through a varied diet rather than supplements.
At the same time, since we are exposed to a lot of pollution we need a high quantity of Vitamins and Minerals, to nullify the attack and side effect of such toxins. So high intake of protein is essential.
Around 70% of the body is comprised of water, and around 71% of the planet’s surface is covered by water. Water is needed by all the cells and organs in the body in order for them to function properly. It is also used to lubricate the joints, protect the spinal cord and other sensitive tissues, regulate body temperature and assist the passage of food through the intestines. So high intake of water is essential.
The very best and natural source of Carbohydrates, Protein, Fat, Vitamins, Minerals, Water are fruits and vegetable. See how amazingly God created everything that man required for his body to function!
If the intake of Protein, Vitamins, Minerals, Water are less, we will not feel the impact of it instantly, but in long run, it’s like riding a vehicle without sufficient lubricant. Our inner organ’s functionality will be affected very badly if we don’t consume the required quantity, and very slowly it turns into lifestyle diseases.
In this matter also Evil is playing crucial roles. In the place of natural and raw foods, Evil introduced very tasty fast food, processed food and preservatives. To overcome the side effect of such secondary food, Evil introduced allopathic medicines too.
If you just observe, this secondary food processing & manufacturing industry and the Pharmaceutical & Medical industries, those are the two giant business sectors in the whole world.
Believe it or not, now the Pharmaceutical companies are deliberate including chemical compounds in the medicines (in the frequently used low-cost medicines) that develops lifestyle diseases in human bodies. So in the long run, without knowledge, our body will develop diseases and disorders. Which turns into million core business for such medical industries.
Unfortunately, most of our doctors get the knowledge about the ingredients of tablets and medicines from the medical representatives (they are very experts in selling and marketing their products). Most of the drug controlling authorities are also ignorant about the not listed chemical compounds ingredients of medicines, we hardly have felicities to find out such things.
So my kind advice is to have a lot of natural and raw vegetables and fruits that God provided for us from the begging of this world, and that can be taken under any medical conditions (few ignorant doctors will not allow to consumes that also).
If vegetables and fruits are created by God, don’t listen to anyone else… just have it … enjoy it … and be healthy always!!!
