But before we examine and list some of the most valuable nutrients and benefits that most fruits and vegetables will provide us with, have you ever stopped to take a brief look at the birth and maturity of a fruit – yes, a simple fruit!
It's been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh water, made dry land, planted a garden, and made animals and fish... all before making a human. So does it not seem that He made and provided for our needs even before we were produced?
Our story goes like this……………….
- Have we ever taken notice of the fact that all fruits – apples, oranges, plums, peaches, bananas, grapes and cherries, are all completely green before they are ripe, plus the fact that they blend in perfectly with their respective trees?
- Maybe they are trying to hide themselves from intruders until they are ready to fall off the tree or waiting to be picked?
- Until they are ready for picking, did you notice how tightly knit the skin of each fruit is packed to protect the insides from insects and to lock in the juices and keep them fresh?
- And yet, what happens if you do not eat the fruit within a particular time-span after it is ripe? They will turn soft and change skin color, as well as lose all their flavor and goodness.
- What is needed so that you can, for generations to come, produce a new harvest over and over again?
- Have you ever given thought to examining the beginnings of these fruits and vegetables?
- Did you notice that within each fruit is its seed which, when planted in to any soil, with just the nourishment of water and sunlight, will reproduce the same type of fruit every time?
- Now put your mind to another phenomenon. Did you ever think about that little seed, and the fact that it contains the formula to spread roots, complete with all the finery of a bark, branches, leaves and blossoms before the fruit finally appears? The only outside consideration is a seasonal one, which is determined again by nature.
Is it possible that there are certain fruits and vegetables that not only resemble particular organs in the Human Body, but that they also provide special nutrients that are especially needed and promote the well-being of that particular organ?
It follows that these natural foods act best & more powerfully when eaten raw.
Let us examine a few examples –
Would you agree that the inside of a sliced Carrot looks like the human eye? The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye... and YES, science now shows that carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and help the function of the eyes.
Did you notice that a Tomato has four chambers and is red? The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopene and are indeed a pure heart and blood food. (Lycopene, though very beneficial to the body, is not considered an essential nutrient). Lycopene is present in most fresh fruits and vegetables. Those foods with the highest concentrations are tomatoes, ketchup, spaghetti sauce, red, yellow and orange fruits and fruit juices, red, yellow and orange vegetables. The juices and sauces seem to have more digestible forms of lycopene...even when cooked. Does not a cluster of hanging Grapes have the shape of the heart? Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also an important compound as a vitalizing food for the heart and blood.
What about the Brain and a Walnut? Notice the resemblance? The brain has a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
Kidney Beans? They actually heal and help maintain kidney function whilst looking exactly like the human kidneys.
Can you see the resemblance between Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more that look just like human bones? These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
Avocadoes, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female – don’t they look just like these organs? Today's research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
Have you noticed that Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow? Had you heard that Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well helping to overcome male sterility?
Is it purely co-incidence that Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics?
Did you know that Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries?
Do Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female? Well not only is there a resemblance, they actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.
Why do Onions look like the body's cells? Did you know that today's research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells? They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.
