Dealing With Lifestyle Diseases Using Raw Food Diets

By Russell James

These days, many people suffer from different health complications. The most common are obesity and diabetes, which unfortunately, are directly linked to the diet that one consumes. Health experts have been using various methods in an effort to reverse this trend. One of these methods is the used of specialized diets such as the raw food diet. With these diets, the body’s disease fighting mechanisms are strengthened. With the raw diet, one is supposed to consume plant-based foods in their natural uncooked state.

It is important to note that a raw food diet does not involve eating only uncooked foods. It means that the largest portion of ones meals should be made up of the raw foods. The exact proportion will be determined by the specialist you consult.

This means that people can engage in different forms of raw food diets without loosing the health benefits. The most common include avoiding heating foods beyond 116 degrees Fahrenheit, as this is the temperature at which enzymes break down. Another one involves ensuring that more than half of the foods are consumed in their natural uncooked state. Finally, taking part in a vegan diet with no meat and dairy products also qualifies in this category.

Why it is important to consider this diet?

Although the raw diet has been associated with various health benefits, one can still wonder if it is necessary to consume this diet. If you consider the history of human beings, it is clear that they evolved largely on a plant-based diet.

The other diets started to emerge after humans learned to domesticate animals and farm. This is what led to the artificially created foods, which form a large part of today’s diets. These are hard for the body to process and the main reason for the explosion of lifestyle diseases.

Consuming a diet made up of raw foods means that one successfully eliminates alcohol, white sugar and many of the other artificial ingredients from the diet. Instead, one consumes more vitamins, enzymes, minerals and other healthy substances.

This is why a person taking part in this diet can be able to cope with health complications and lifestyle diseases such as diabetes more easily. Other benefits of this diet include improved moods and a positive body image. These two result from the elimination of harmful substances from the body, which helps, in maintenance of better brain chemistry and loss of weight.

The raw food diet has also been used in curing other diseases such as asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, pneumonia, chronic bronchitis and allergies. The diet has also been utilized in the improvement of hair and skin condition, elimination of junk food cravings and improving athletic performance.
