I just had a great conversation with a person in a turmeric group I subscribe to. She was helping me figure out what to do with Bart and his reactions to Golden Paste. He just breaks out in a horrible rash, but I know that it helps his arthritis in leaps and bounds. I’ve been torn about what to do because he’s irritated and itchy even though his arthritis bothers him less and less when he’s taking it.
She helped me to tweak my turmeric treatment plan for him and shared a great resource for an oatmeal soak to try to help soothe his skin. I’ll share that link with you later. Before I do that though, my new friend and I shared some thoughts on the unique root that I wanted to share with you. This is how our conversation went:
Her, “When I started the Golden Paste, I had an old scar from a spider bite open back up and drain. It was so strange but it was explained to me that the turmeric removes a lot of toxins that have built up in our bodies over time. That bite was from 10 years ago but the GP managed to find that location in my body and clear it up. I couldn’t believe it.”
Me, “Oh wow! It’s a truly magical food. Seems like it has a consciousness doesn’t it? He used to suffer from demodex when he was a pup, so I’ve wondered about that too. Maybe it’s just revisiting all of that crap. It actually looks like demodex when it scabs over, but when his chiropractor looked at it and said he thought it was just from the pepper, I figured he knows best.“
Her, “Wow. Yea. That is interesting about the demodex. I bet he has had a lot of underlying immune system issues that have remained undetected…and with cancer on top. Poor fella. It will be a slow road, but even turtles and snails find their destinations.
I love how you said how Turmeric seems to have a consciousness, because man, that’s exactly how I feel. There seems to be an an unavoidable energy transfer between our food and health. And it’s very evident with turmeric. Even science raves about its innate intelligence to seek and destroy pre-malignant cancer cells and leave healthy cells alone. A technology that is above and beyond our own at this point. Chemo has nothing on Turmeric as far as not destroying healthy functioning cells.
I hold a special relationship with my batches of GP. I really love making it and I think it really loves healing me.”
So the point of this discussion is to introduce the idea that our food can be more than just filler and calories that satisfy us when we’re hungry. What if there is a greater connection between us and our food? Perhaps the reason we find some foods to be medicinal is because they actually carry some sort of intelligence that we on an unconscious level are drawn to intuitively?
I’ve spoken about this before. Our foods, the heirlooms that have been organically grown and harvested for eons, derived on their own for millions of years without interaction from humankind. These foods are actually sunlight in a dense form. Sunlight is information, light coming into formation in the form of our food via photosynthesis, which then is synthesized by us when we eat it, which in turn makes up, or rather, informs our bodies. There is a lot more to the phrase “you are what you eat” than a cutesy idea to encourage a healthy diet. You really are the stuff you put into your body because through digestion and by way of your bloodstream, whatever food you eat becomes the building blocks of your human form. That is why donuts will always become fat cells, never muscle. Food and your body together share a magical dance of communication that determine health and structure.
I’m a strong advocate against GMOs and one of the reasons for me is that whole foods that occur in nature harbor millions of years of coded information. Roses are thirty-five millions of years old, meaning when you smell a rose, eat rose petals in a salad or slather rose oil on your skin, you are ingesting intelligence from the planet that stretches back thirty-five million years! When scientists tinker with the structure of our food by splicing and dicing DNA sequences, they are scrambling messages of ancient sunlight intelligence. They are messing with codes that are intended to intelligently and perfectly interact with our bodies and help us to heal and thrive. We came into being long after our food came into form, so we should be careful not to unravel ourselves, our perfect symbiotic relationship to nature with random genetic experiments in the name of profit. I believe this is one of the reasons I have had so much success with Bart and an anti-cancer diet. I use ingredients/foods that have been proven to target cancerous cells, and support a healthy immune system. This is as much science as it is common sense. Now I know why the tradition of giving thanks before eating has remained important over many generations. It isn’t about religion unless you worship the sun. This is about being grateful for sustenance and our connection with our food, our earth, our air and water.
The next time you sit down to eat a meal, consider it a form of communication, a communion between you and what sustains you. Give thanks and respect that which has been for millions of years so that we can exist in this blink of an eye in the span of life of our planet.
Years ago I was listening to an interview about scientists who were conducting experiments with food. They tested food that was meditated over by Tibetan monks to determine if there was an increase in nutritional value due to the focused intention. While listening, I was cutting up some small tomatoes for a meal I was preparing. I consciously paused and gave thanks to the tomato for giving itself to me and this is what appeared when I sliced it open. I don’t believe in insignificant coincidences.
Peace to you and yours.
