Colds and raw food, don't blame the kids...

Breakfast- 5 Champagne mangos

Lunch- Brazil nut/Sesame seed milk smoothie w/banana

Dinner- home-made sweet potato casserole, coconut water from 1 young coconut

My analyst regularly has colds and he has one now.  I don't often comment on it; this week I did.  I told him that I believe colds can be avoided by changing lifestyle and that I don't believe colds are caused by germs.  Colds are the body's response to an accumulation of toxins; the proliferation of germs are a by-product of the toxin laden compromised cellular terrain.  Germs are merely feeding on the toxic accumulation and are not the cause of it or the cold.  Mucous, phlegm, and runny noses are the body's way of transporting the toxins out of the body.  If this did not happen homeostasis would be in jeopardy.

Toxic accumulation in the body can be caused by numerous factors, lack of sleep, exercise, sunshine, and fresh air, as well as stress and tension and the consumption of cooked food.  These and other factors can inhibit the body's ceaseless self cleaning operations.  Eating a predominantly raw diet frees a large amount of the body's energy so that it can directed to maintenance rather than the breaking down and elimination of cooked food which is a dead and denatured foreign substance.

My analyst attributes his colds to the germs that his small children are exposed to at school; they carry these germs home to daddy who becomes sick.  I disagree; germs are everywhere and there is no avoiding them!  If the germ theory were accurate, we'd all have colds all the time. 

When someone attributes their cold to the germs that their children bring home from school he is in effect blaming his kids for his own indiscretions with regard to health and wellness.

Analyze that!

Well said. I am 64 years old, raw for 4 years and so is my partner.

I've seen friends half my age go through one cold, and month long flu after the other, cancer, diverticulitis and other horrible things. My partner and I suggested raw foods and one of my sons said he could never give up his bread and cheese. EW! My grandchildren have been sick with colds and flu a good portion of their young lives. If I say anything about it the answer is, "That's the way things are with kids, especially when they go to preschool. " NOT! I've given each of their parents a book on children and raw foods. Maybe when they get tired of being sick and tired, they will go for it. I know it's a sacrifice but it's worth it.
