Foods have a physical makeup, a composition of nutrients that the body uses for different purposes. It is important to understand the chemical makeup of food, and understand things like proteins, carbohydrates, sugars, fats, minerals, vitamins, and so on. Equally as important and beneficial is to understand how food affects the mind, spirit, and the energy body.
Understanding what food energetics is and how it affects your well-being may help create a healthier body, a healthier mind, and healthier spirit. Traditional Chinese Medicine is an ancient philosophy of Taoism and has been used for centuries. It focuses on taking care of the body physically, spiritually, emotionally, and energetically. It teaches the five element theory. There are also other paths used in working with the energy body, such as through the Chakras, which is taught in the Hindu practice. In the practice of Ayurveda, it is called the doshas. Simply put, many traditions around the world teach that everything is interrelated.
It is important to know how food impacts the health of not just your physical body, but also emotional, spiritual, and energy body. Food can make you ill or it can lead to a healthy long-lived life. It can connect you to nature and to God. When you look at a banana for instance, it is not just a banana, a fruit, that is a healthy source of vitamins and minerals, but also look at how it was made, the season in which it grew, who grew it, how far it has travelled to get to your hands, the water that is a component of it, the prayer you say over it, how old it is, and so on.
Every person has intuition. Our organs have intuition. The body's intuitive knowledge distinguishes between foods by their taste, color, vibration, season in which it was grown, and vitamin and mineral content. When you understand and acknowledge your body’s innate instincts, when you tune in, you can learn how to give your body the optimal nutrition it needs for not just surviving, but thriving.
So what science is there to show the energy of food? There have been many scientists to study the energy of food, and how it affects the human body beneficially or negatively. An angstrom is used in the natural sciences and technology to express the sizes of atoms, molecules, and microscopic biological structures, the lengths of chemical bonds, the arrangement of atoms in crystals, the wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation, and the dimensions of integrated circuit parts.
Many scientists, including a famous electrical engineer, André Simoneton who was an expert in electromagnetism and from 1930 to 1940 was involved in the research of vibration of foods, researched to define what energies are beneficial or harmful to the human body. The human body emits a measurable amount of radiation, so the first step in researching the energy of food was to determine the energy of the human body. Radiation from the human body, food, plants, animals, etc. can be shown through color and sound. A healthy human body is measured between 6200-7200 angstroms. To have good health the human b
ody needs to maintain about 6500 angstroms. When the human body is influenced by lower frequencies emitted by food for example, can bring down the vibrational energy of healthy person, therefore, possibly creating disease of the whole body (physically, energetically, spiritually, and emotionally).
Simoneton measured foods and found that many emit between zero and 10,000 angstroms. There are four categories he broke food into. The first and highest category being fresh, raw, and juiced fruits and vegetables or cooked below 70 degrees, cold-pressed oils like olive, coconut, and almond, and essential oils from other plants. Also, some foods are higher in energy only if consumed at the time of production like milk, butter and eggs. In the second category were items that resonated about 6.5 to 3,000 angstroms. These included wine, honey, eggs that are not freshly laid, cooked fish, and boiled vegetables. The third category consisted of foods that resonated below 3,000 angstroms and include cooked meats, coffee, tea, chocolate, jams, and processed cheeses. The final category, the fourth category are foods that have little to no energy and includes margarine, alcoholic spirits, refined white sugar and bleached flour. His research suggest that for optimum health we eat vegetables, grain, fruit, nuts and other foods which emit radiance higher than the human norm. This is in complete accord with the recommendations of ancient texts and the scriptures of most religions.
It is also interesting to include his findings on water. Some waters like that from Lourdes, the famous healing water, resonated at 14,000 angstroms. He also found that dehydration of food like fruits, did not affect the energy once they were soaked in water and rehydrated for at least a day. He found that water is capable of being vitalized by minerals, plants, and human beings. This is fascinating, especially when you read about Masaru Emoto’s work with water molecules.
Prana is a Sanskrit word used in yoga that describes energy that creates and constitutes the whole universe. Clairvoyants see an aura, colorful light radiating around every living being. Scientists call it bioplasma and measure its scope of power just as they would a force-field. With the buzz about energy, from alternative energies to energy drinks, isn’t it astonishing to take notice of how tired so many of us are? Many people are depressed, lacking enthusiasm for living, worried, and out of touch with their own bodies, with nature, and with each other. Many diseases have reached epidemic and pandemic levels.
There is no amount of protein, caffeine, sugar, vitamins, that can heal your energy body. There is more than just counting calories that needs to take place in a healthy eating plan and lifestyle. Everything you think, do, eat, feel, emit vibrations, and influence you and everyone around you. It is time to connect to your intuition, to listen to your body, to connect with nature, and with the Creator of all.
Have a blessed, healthy, and happy day, filled with love and creativity!
