HEALTH TIP OF THE MONTH
Full spectrum light and rainbow food
I often tell my patients how important it is to eat nature’s food rather than man made food and that we are children of the sun. There would be no life on the planet without light, and we are just starting to understand its incredible role on every cell of our body. Just like the plants, trees and just like our food, we are light bodies!
Every function and rhythm of the body is influenced by light rays. Dr Jacob Liberman in his book Light: Medicine Of The Future, mentions that the entire volume of blood, which transports most of the body’s nutrients, is pumped by the heart and circulates through the eyes every two hours where it is then affected by the direct stimulation of the light. According to him: “For any ingested substance to be fully processed or used by the body, it needs to go through a series of chemical reactions that are catalyzed (ignited) by a specific portion of the electrical spectrum. Without this specific portion of the spectrum ( type of light), the substance would not be fully used, resulting in some aspect of the physiological functioning being left in the dark. Without a balanced spectrum of light in our environment we probably suffer from ” malillumination’‘. This condition, which is probably more common than we like to believe, can lead to a lack of nutritional support for certain portions of our being, resulting in chronic disease.’‘
As in every cell of our body, food itself is like a ”frozen light”. The lower we eat on the food chain ( meaning more of the vegetal world), the better chances we have to receive the full life force that light provides. Foods derived from animal origin especially from those held captive indoors, and of manufactured food with highly processed or chemical items, not only pollute our bodies which are not equipped to neither digest or eliminate them, but rarely have any of light’s nutritional value. In his book, Dr Liberman also mentions another interesting book, Spiritual Nutrition and the Rainbow Diet, by Dr Gabriel Cousens who describes the important psychophysiological functions attributed to the colour of food.
So to nourish and nurture your bodies, mind and spirits, look for local nature’s rainbow food grown in the natural full-spectrum of light, and make sure to expose your body in the sun, everyday of the year!
“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”
