Understanding the Benefits of a Raw Food Diet

Fruits and vegetables lose a considerable amount of their nutrients when they are heated above 105 Fahrenheit. Eating foods that are raw allows you to take advantage of all the vital nutrients within food, many of which are necessary for your health and wellbeing. At Optimum Health Institute, we prepare raw meals using dehydrated, fermented, and fresh foods that are combined to provide optimum nutrition.

Improved Digestion

Your body utilizes enzymes to help digest food. Raw fruits and vegetables naturally contain enzymes that are destroyed when the food is cooked. By consuming a raw diet, you can provide your body with additional enzymes, allowing for better digestion and absorption of foods and nutrients.

Benefits of Juice Fasting

One benefit of a juice fast are that the food is easily digested with minimal energy by the body.  With a juice fast you can take advantage of the vital nutrients in food without the taxing digestion.  Also, another benefit is that a juice fast is alkalizing to the body pH.  Eating an alkalizing diet, as opposed to an acidic diet, can help with a myriad of physical complaints and illnesses.

Reduced Risk of Diseases

There are a number of chemicals and nutrients found naturally in raw foods that can help prevent diseases. For example, cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and kale contain high amounts of isothiocyanates, a group of chemicals that have been shown to help fight cancer. Cooking these vegetables eliminates the isothiocyanates within them. A raw diet has also been found to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and lower overall cholesterol levels.

Healthier Weight

A raw food diet promotes a healthy body weight. The consumption of high amounts of raw food and vegetables eliminates excess fat and sugars from the diet. In addition, better digestion may result in higher energy levels which can make regular exercise easier to accomplish.

At Optimum Health Institute, we serve a variety of raw-live foods, juice fasting, and wheatgrass to promote restoring your body to its natural balance. Our meals do not contain nuts or oils, which can hinder the detoxification process.

The Human Body: Designed To Heal Naturally

OHI Austin Main Lodge

While humans have created a number of astonishing machines and technologies, none have come close to the sophistication of the human body. We have the ability to cleanse and heal ourselves naturally, and our bodies can produce amazing results when given the right nutritional support.

Detoxification

In today’s world, there are a number of toxins that many people consume and absorb on a regular basis, from antibiotics in milk to volatile organic compounds in the air. The body has a remarkable ability to cleanse itself of these harmful toxins when given the right tools. Toxins are naturally neutralized or eliminated by a number of organs, including the liver, kidneys, and colon. Providing your body with large amounts of water and the correct nutrients, such as vitamin C and beta-carotene, from fruits and leafy greens can help support the natural detoxification process.  Also, daily colon cleansing with enemas or colonics helps to rid the body of toxins.

Self-Healing

The human body is able to heal from devastating injuries and conditions when given the necessary time and means. Your body has the ability to regenerate different tissues to repair and reverse problems. However, it is important for the mind to be clear and relaxed in order for the body’s healing potential to be maximized. In addition, a diet that is full of the necessary enzymes and nutrients can assist your body while it self-heals.

Restoration of Balance

Your body is constantly working to attain a state of equilibrium, or balance. The kidneys are important for maintaining the right balance in your blood by filtering wastes, acids, and toxins from the body. One of the important balances found within your body is its pH. Your body works to achieve a neutral pH of 7.35; eating raw foods which are alkaline-forming, such as dark leafy greens, will help your body neutralize the acids found in processed foods like dairy products and refined flours.

Your body is designed to perform amazing feats when given the chance. If you are interested in maximizing your body’s healing potential, Optimum Health Institute in San Diego or Austin can help. Our holistic healing program promotes total wellness and supports the body’s natural healing mechanisms. To learn more, call us today at (800) 993-4325.
