Urban Vegan Chic | An Interview about My Fruit Thing

    The one thing I love the most about social media is the chance to meet new and like minded people. In fact that is why I joined social media so long ago. As a homeschooling stay at home mom it is very difficult to meet new people. My life has always been wrapped up in my kids and immediate family. And other than family gatherings I rarely get out. But thanks to social media, Facebook and You Tube I am meeting so many nice people.

The best part is I get to meet like minded individuals, those that share a common interest. I do have many interest and my most important interest I think is that in the area of holistic health, healing and healthy diet in general. I am in so many wonderful groups on Facebook with so many great people. One such person is my new friend Nina, she is a member in one of the groups I am in on Facebook. She is a blogger, and vegan lifestyle enthusiast! She operates a vary successful blog called Urban Vegan Chic. It's all about vegan food, and lifestyle.

A great resource for those needing some new vegan ideas or are interested in embarking on this wonderful journey. Her blog isn't necessarily about Fruitarianism, but she has written about that as well. Recently Nina messaged me and wanted to do a little interview for her blog. It's a short little post about my journey and some helpful advice for those wanting to try out a fruitarian diet. Please check it out here; My Fruit Thing: An Interview. I was happy to help and she did an awesome job putting it all together. I am grateful for the opportunity to be interviewed. I wanted to return the favor, as well as let my viewers know about her awesome vegan site.

No matter what area of veganism you have chosen I hope that My Fruit Thing, and Urban Vegan Chic can inspire you to do more for your health and this planet. Because when we are healthy, we are happy and when we go vegan we know that we are a part of something bigger than us. For me veganism is how we care for our selves, our neighbor, our planet, and every beautiful creature that we share this earth with. It's the Golden Rule at it's best!

Dr. Robert Morse - The Great Lymphatic System

    Most people don't understand or have never even considered The Great Lymphatic System, which is the sewer system for every cell in your body! If we look closely literally everything natural, and man made consumes, and eliminates some kind of byproduct or emissions. We eat food for fuel and we eliminate the waste. Animals do it, plants do it, and even cars have elimination called emissions. On the cellular level we also consume, and eliminate! Our cells, which make up everything in our entire body, need to consume fuel, and eliminate its waste.

This is where the lymphatic system comes in. The great lymphatic system is how our cells get rid of cell waste. The lymphatic system's job is to carry acid waste, and toxins out of the body through the kidneys in urination. When the lymphatic system can't do this due to improper kidney function, or filtration issues, the system becomes backed up like any other septic system would. This backup causes the lymph to become stagnated, keeping waste, and toxins in your body. When this happens you become damaged on the cellular level. Body systems, and organs begin to breakdown. In the medical world they call that disease, but I prefer symptoms of body breakdown.

Eliminative Systems

What will happen if you didn't flush your toilet? It will become over full, toxic, smelly, and eventually when you do try to flush it, it backs up and contaminates everything around it. Not good at all! This is exactly what is going on when your lymphatic system gets backed up with cellular waste. This is why the lymphatic system is an elimination system. Both the immune system and the lymphatic system work together offering protection for cells, and elimination of cellular waste. Our eliminative systems are of course lymphatic, immune, integumentary, intestinal, urinary and respiratory. All of these systems are responsible for elimination of various types of wastes.

The lymph system consists of the lymph fluid, lymph vessels, lymph nodes, spleen and the thymus gland. Lymph fluid is alkaline, translucent fluid that flows from cells to the venous blood supply via the lymph vessels. This fluid acts as the water in your toilet that carries the waste away to the sewer, or septic tank. The waste that is eliminated consists of everything from acid byproducts, chemical toxins, dead cells, salts, hormones, and pretty much anything unused, or unwanted by the body.

Lymph nodes are specifically your bodies septic tanks that are used by your lymph system to filter, neutralize, bond, and destroy pathogens, antigens, and also serve as a filter for lymph cells. Your lymph nodes become enlarged and swollen when they become over burdened with this toxic waste, parasites, acidosis, etc... because of improper elimination. Eliminating the causes of the waste is a great start. Also including the pathogen fighting, alkalizing, nutrient, and mineral rich foods such as raw fruits and vegetables will help your systems function properly. Your high water rich fruits will aid in kidney function, and filtering out of these wastes too.

As you can see the lymphatic system is the back bone to detoxification. When we get these acids and wastes out of the way our body can begin to heal. Changing your diet to healing foods is a must! Making sure you are filtering out your wastes is also extremely important. The best way to do this is to pee in a jar. You can do this in the morning, or any time. Let it sit for a while, and then come back to it. Are there sediments? Stringy mucous, and cloudy lymphatic waste in the jar? If so then you are filtering.

If your pee is clear then you are drinking to much water, and not filtering out the waste. You aren't looking so much for color, but the other stuff I just mentioned. You can also just take a look every time you pee. Is it cloudy? The water in the toilet will dilute it a bit so peeing in a jar regularly is the best way to really see what is coming out. You can also see which fruits you are eating is promoting the best filtration then just eat more of that for best results. There are also herbs and herbal formulas that can promote kidney filtration to help the process along.

If we want to be healthy we must effectively get the toxic waste out through these elimination systems. We also need to avoid things that create waste in our system, that way there is less work to be done. Our body will function much more smoothly when we prevent body break down in the first place. In any event there is no better time to start than now!

Please read my post titled An Introduction to Fruit Living for more information about why you want to change your diet.

There is so much more I could say here about all of the elimination systems and their functions but just don't have the room for it here. I highly recommend that you get Get The Detox Miracle Sourcebook by Robert Morse, N.D. Healing is possible and there is no such thing as an incurable disease. In fact I'm not even talking to you about disease, but symptoms. Our symptoms are warning signs that we need healing. We must learn how to listen to our body, this is our map to true health and vitality.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and God bless!

Vitamin Supplementation

   Humans are designed, and have always been designed to eat primarily whole foods, in their most natural state possible. Eating whole natural foods, with minimal to NO processing, ensures that we are putting the best possible foods in our bodies. The nutrient content of food is decreased when it is processed. And, since we live in a culture that over consumes processed foods, we do see nutrient deficiencies and mineral loss. In the developed world we see a rise in both obesity, and malnourishment. While in the underdeveloped world we see malnourishment along with excessive thinness. Both are because of lack of fresh foods in the diet, but the sad thing is in the developed countries we have more than enough fresh whole foods to eat, we just choose not to eat it as much as we should.

I don't think I have to tell you that fruits and vegetables are super healthy for our bodies, especially when all of the vitamins and minerals are kept in tact. This is why eating your produce raw is the best way to get all of the available vitamins, and minerals. And, of course there are your whole grains. beans and legumes.

But, what about supplementation?

Not one will argue that vitamins in their naturally balanced state are essential for better assimilation, synergistic action, and maximum biological effect. But, most of the vitamin supplements on the market being sold to the people are synthetic garbage, that our bodies don't assimilate very well. And, can leave you worse off then if you were before.

  • Supplementing too much causes acidosis. This will lead to  symptoms of body breakdown also known as "disease."
  • Vitamin C is also acidic, leaches out calcium, and lowers beneficial cholesterol. 
  • Never mega dose anything! Especially oil soluble vitamins.
  • When we supplement separated constituents can lead to imbalances in our body chemistry.
  • Synthetic/artificial vitamins accumulate in your tissues causing obstruction and toxicity.

The US. National Academy of Science, food and nutrition board, recommends that we get our recommended amounts of vitamins and minerals from our foods and rather than supplementation.
This is where a raw vegan fruitarian diet comes in handy! When we eat raw living foods we are consuming all of the available vitamins in their natural state. Your body will use what it needs and any absorption problems can be addressed through detoxification and regeneration of cells.

Digestion, Absorption, Utilization 

There is so much more to deficiencies than just adding more of something to your diet. Most vitamin, and mineral deficiencies are caused by mechanisms in your body not functioning properly, and not just lacking certain foods, or supplements. You may not be absorbing nutrients from your foods due to gastrointestinal issues, adrenal issues, endocrine issues, etc...

This is why fixing the problem, and eating whole raw foods is the key to getting everything you need, and not supplementation. Eating a diet primarily of fruits, berries, and melons, is the most effective way to fix the body's weaknesses, get acids out, and improve digestive function, which promotes better nutrient absorption. The video below goes into this in more detail I highly recommend that you take the time to watch.

A diet of varied different fruits, berries, melons, even vegetables, greens, some seeds, and nuts is a great way to make sure you are getting everything you need. Also, avoiding nutrient robbing activities like smoking, alcohol, caffeine and using pharmaceutical drugs will ensure that you are getting everything you need, and your body systems function better.
