God's Pharmacy

Sometimes, in regards to my blog, I want to roam outside of the craft circle and share something I find quite inspirational, entertaining or awakening.
This is such a post. It is about our interconnection with nature and that God has provided everything we need to be healthy and cure body ailments - and all that is at the reach of our hands. For me it arrived in the form of a mail and finally I decided to archive it here. Later, while searching the Net I discovered that there is a book by the same name by Herman Uys and the book endeavours to address and remedy the causes of sickness and disease, instead of suppressing the symptoms.

I am using just a short extract to catch your attention.
The truth behind the words:

A sliced carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye. They greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes, and help protect the vision, especially night vision.

As you may suspect from their looks walnuts resemble the brain with the wrinkles and folds of the neo-cortex - there are clearly divided left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Research suggests that walnuts may reduce the risk or delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.The high concentration of omega-3 fats in walnuts promotes healthy brain function.

The tomato with its color and chambers resembles the heart and researches have shown that they are rich in lycopine and are pure heart and blood food. Besides preventing heart diseases, they also prevent prostate cancer, breast cancer and more. Tomato juice can also reduce the tendency toward blood clotting.

Onions look like body cells. They help clear the waste material from body cells and along with their relative the garlic are considered cancer fighters.
Avocados were used by the Aztecs as a sex stimulant and the Aztec name for avocado was ahuacatl, meaning “testicle”. An extract of avocado impedes the growth of both androgen dependent and independent prostate cancer cells.

On the same note figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase their count to overcome male sterility.
Oranges and other citrus resemble female mammary glands. These fruits contain nutrients that are helpful in the fight against breast cancer.
Olives resemble ovaries and may help reduce hot flashes in women going through menopause. Research indicates that Olive Oil may reduce ovarian cancer by 30%.

This is not all. What about grapes, celery, rhubarb, sweet potatoes, kidney beans and more? They all have their contribution. You just have to find it out.

Very definitely my favourite post of the weekend, this is so interesting. We are firm believers in the power of foods in our household and know what is good and what is not. But I have never thought about the similarities of how food actually looks to how it behaves.
Walnuts, oranges, tomatoes etc going up on the menu this weekend! Thank you for this.

This is true, I've seen this in many Asian magazines, it's quite logical, too, when you think about it. Everything in nature has been created with a purpose, food included. I agree, we should be more aware of what we eat, how we eat. Wonderful post Maya, great pictures! Hugs, Ira
