“Your body responds uniquely to food — your fuel — based on your genetics, biochemical makeup, family history, and your own interaction with your environment.”
Protein Types operate best on a low-carbohydrate, high-protein and relatively high-fat diet (healthy fat that is). These ratios are detailed for you in your profile to help you make the wisest food choices.
Carb Types normally feel best when most of their food is carbohydrate. Yet, there are major differences between classes of carbs such as vegetables and grains. With this you will discover which carbs are best for your unique physiology.
Mixed Types require food combinations somewhere between carb and protein type groups. This type requires quite a bit of fine-tuning and listening to your own body, making it the most challenging type.
“Plants can only be as healthy as the soil they grow in, animals can only be as healthy as the plants they eat, and humans can only be as healthy as the plants and animals they eat.” – Paul Chek
Organic farming represents the Wheel of Life! Conventional farming represents the Wheel of Death! Soils are damaged by toxic pesticides and chemical fertilizers, which kill off the microorganisms, and leads to damaged, nutrient-deficient plants. So now we have sick/drugged animals, eating sick/poisoned plants under inhuman conditions. This results in humans eating sick/poisoned plants, and sick/drugged animals, which cause us to have increased diseases, loss of vitality, increased visits to medical doctors, and increased consumption of prescription drugs (to “help” with the side effects of what we’re eating).
6: ‘The Last 4 Doctors You’ll Ever Need – How To Get Healthy Now’ – by Paul Chek
“The Last 4 Doctors You’ll Ever Need – How To Get Healthy Now! is a synthesis and expansion of an ancient Greek philosophy, popularized by Hippocrates. Hippocrates essentially approached each patient with the notion that there were three main physicians already within each person:
1. Dr. Quiet
2. Dr. Diet
3. Dr. Happiness
He rationalized that whatever ailed his patients had its roots in one or more of these three chief aspects of human life. Using this simple principle and as little as 40 herbs and a pig’s bladder filled with sand to offer medical exercise, he achieved a level of success that made him a famous physician. This is true even today, some 2377 years after his death! Yet as successful as he was, were Hippocrates a modern physician, he would certainly have had to make an addition to his theory. As he would have found quickly, today’s patients also often suffer from a sedentary lifestyle. This change in our lifestyles is what prompted me to add Dr. Movement to Hippocrates’ original three experts.”
