From the article:
“If you find yourself craving sweet or salty foods it can indicate an imbalance of yin or yang.”
… or you are just addicted to sugar and salt, which are both highly addictive.
“According to yin-yang philosophy, raw and cold foods are both yin. The nature of yin energy is relaxing but also expansive, which was evident in her expanded belly. Another symptom of an expanded yin condition is the inability to focus.”
We are the only animal on the planet that cooks (kills) its food. All other animals eat only raw food.
Inability to focus?
Don’t bet on it!
Only our pets eat cooked food and they develop the same diseases of civilization that usually only humans (that cook & kill their food) suffer from.
“Her body was indeed very bloated around the abdomen.”
… from heavy detox-reactions and eating too much fruit. The diet of Schimpanzees and Gorillas consists of 50% green leaves and flowers.
The fruit sugar will be assimilated much slower into your blood stream, when you eat your fruits with green leaves like Schimpanzees do.
That is one of many reasons why we make ourselves green smoothies with our Vitamix.
A raw vegan diet kills parasites that do not belong into your gut which leads to bloating in the beginning and slowly helps to normalize the intestinal flora. It also detoxifies the body from all kinds of toxic garbage that has been stored over the years everywhere inside your body, because the body wasn’t able to get rid of it anymore and stored it where it caused the least damage.
The body only has a certain detox top speed. But now with a raw vegan diet (that is full of organic minerals, enzymes and vital energy) the body takes its chance and goes into full detox mode, which – after so many years of accumulating garbage – leads to heavy detox reactions (in the beginning).
You can do a lot (herbs, spices, coffee enemas, distilled water enemas) to soften those detox-reactions and to support your body doing its miraculous work.
Who can focus with a bloated and painful stomach and a body in full detox mode? In full detox mode you are supposed to relax, heal, rest and step aside and let the body do its work.
“To help normalize her yin condition, I recommended she eat more yang foods such as different types of whole grains, sea vegetables, miso, sea salt, and root vegetables, and that she cook her food. This diet worked.“
Sure, this diet worked, because the body is now busy with detoxifying from toxic inorganic salt, soy & cooked foods (cooking kills the enzymes and turns organic minerals into inorganic minerals) and so it stops its ‘spring cleaning’ and goes back to its ‘survive as long as possible under difficult conditions modus’.
Well done! You’ve just slowed down and maybe even blocked (the beginning of) a successful rejuvenation and healing process.
But as she said:
“The ancient Chinese philosophy of yin and yang may sound obscure and difficult to understand for many of us living in the West.”
I think she got that one right.
– Understanding the Yin and Yang of Foods (The Epoch Times, March 22, 2014):
By Margaret Trey, Ph.D
The ancient Chinese philosophy of yin and yang may sound obscure and difficult to understand for many of us living in the West. Yet when we understand a few basics about the yin and yang nature of foods, we can put our knowledge to very practical use, such as weight loss and cutting cravings.
Let us begin with the story about Doreen (not her real name), who was one of my regular clients years ago. One time, upon my return from a three-week vacation, she came to see me saying she felt bloated and was experiencing difficulty focusing on her job at a stock exchange.
