Raw, living foods pack tremendous power. Undoubtedly, there is far too much pain, far too much suffering, far too much stiffness and far too many issues that people are experiencing within society. It is not too difficult to eliminate the better part of those once you gain a little bit of understanding, knowledge and a small amount of gentle, loving discipline. YUSA aims to encourage you to make positive choices that will allow you to thrive in life.
Your body naturally detoxifies every day as part of a normal body process. Detoxification is one of the body’s most basic automatic functions of eliminating and neutralising toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin.
Regular juicing is transformational, especially in the spring/summer as these periods are really good for obtaining the highly mineralised fruit and vegetables that are brilliant for cleansing, flushing, healing and regenerating the body. Pain, stiffness, lymphatic blockages, headaches, problems in the colon and problems with the skin can start to be released and cleared up with ease.
The good news is that it is absolutely possible for you to be emotionally free, mentally clear, physically energetic and spiritually connected. Start walking along the path of consuming these living foods and detoxifying the old waste debris that lays stagnant in the body. The knowledge and importance of consuming raw living foods has escaped the vast majority of human beings and if you do not look after your own body, you will indeed have nowhere to live.
‘I know that if I do not drink a sufficient quantity of fresh raw vegetable juices every day then, as likely as not, my full quota of nourishment enzymes is missing from my body’ ~ Dr. Norman Walker[i]
It is important to note that what you eat, alongside your emotional and mental state, has absolute dominion over the flow of the divine knowing within every human being. The aim is to clear out anything that is in the way of the divine life force flow. It is important to incorporate all aspects: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, in order to live an abundant life that is divine whilst here on Earth.
Even when the going gets tough, you’re doing it right, things are happening and you have the universe at your back. The pendulum is going to keep swinging, so do not stop! the more intent you are on your growth, the more negatives and mental programs which are buried deep inside of you will rise to the surface and you will have remain strong in dealing with them. You will have to work your way out of the attachment to the things that make you and many others comfortably miserable. It will take a lot of honesty, deep integrity and humility. It will be worth it in the long run and will provide you with the ability to be yourself and authentic.
When you start to detoxify your body, you will experience tiredness and mood swings as the toxicity gets eliminated. Some days you are up, some days you are down. The only way to get through these periods is to have lots of rest and embrace the moment, embracing the now and acceptance in the times of change and detoxification is highly rewarding as it allows there to be less friction in the process. When you start resisting and saying to yourself ‘things should be different than what they are’, then you are telling the whole universe no and you cannot tell the universe no without hitting a brick wall.
Allow the universe, the conditions, the environment, your thoughts, your heart and your emotions simply be and it is promised that all will come well in your phase of transformation. Everybody wants to feel their own self-worth, their own value and can only do so if the work is put in separate to any externals. There is only one person that can do this and that is you. Get on the raw foods, get on the juices, keep cleansing and keep going. There is always light at the end of every tunnel. Remember, it is all about the minerals, the enzymes and nutrients that create the conductivity within the organs, glands and tissues.
Nutritionally developing the brain, endocrine and nervous system is the key for to you becoming a superconductor of the divine energies that allow you to embrace pure radiance and be used by the universe, so you can lead a very fulfilling life alongside assisting others on their journey in the most powerful and positive way possible. This information and practice methodologies are such an important spokes on the wheel of growth, but is overlooked because junk food like pizza tastes so good. YUSA is not ‘anti’ any foods but it is pro living, raw fruits, vegetables, herbs, nuts and seeds!
Consuming raw foods and juicing is important for anybody who wants to improve their life. As mentioned, you may have to go through some rough times at first because people are just so clogged up. But, when you get clean and can just have a jar of juice and your bodyn really can harness every bit of it and provide energy that lasts all day long, you have done it. At this stage, mental clarity arises, emotional well-being comes forth and conductivity awakens cellular functioning. No longer can those old stagnant ways of being stick around.
Have the courage to move through what you’re afraid to face. Too many people get stuck and remain stuck for their entire lifetime -- if not lifetime after lifetime. Pain is fear leaving the body; don’t try to suppress your feelings with alcohol, drugs or junk food. Become a master of being with what is. The life of happiness, peace, joy and bliss is yours for the taking; it all starts with self-love. This is mandatory for growth and for truly loving others. Loving others is actually loving yourself, as others are you. It is a high spiritual understanding: everything is interconnected and nothing is separated.
Juicing is a powerful way to increase the energy, synergy and flow of life, therefore enabling you to have more energy for breathing, talking, exercising and digesting. Extracting the fibres, sugars and minerals from the fresh living fruit and vegetables is delivering pure electricity right into the bloodstream and the brain. Junk, debris, colourings, additives, preservatives can no longer stick to the cell membranes and the lymphatic system slowing down the systemic synergy flow alongside the abundant flow of information and knowledge.
Juice as Medicine
You may have heard the quote ‘let food be thy medicine’ from Hippocrates (also known as ‘the father of medicine’). We doubt that Hippocrates was referring to burgers, fries, pizzas and so forth. Only the juices of natural, life-force-producing foods act as medicine for the body.
The freshly extracted juices from organically grown fruits and vegetables have been widely used in the treatment and prevention of just about every disease known to man. A medical doctor named Max Gerson put 50 of his cancer patients through a juice therapy regime and all of them showed great progress in recovery and many were healed.
This is not to say that juicing can definitely cure cancer, as everybody is different, but Gerson’s juice experiment had extremely remarkable results. He wasn’t the first person to use freshly extracted juices to feed life force back into the cells in order to treat and prevent disease. It is recommended that anybody suffering from disease check out Gerson’s book, A Cancer Therapy: Results of Fifty Cases.
There is nothing more therapeutic than the healing and health benefits of juicing. All life on Earth emanates from the green (chlorophyll) of the plant. Having a couple of glasses of freshly extracted juice daily is one of the most powerful ways of preventing and treating disease, as well as clearing out junk from the internal system. The best way to fight cancer and any other disease is not to poison the body and weaken it further but to feed it the right nutrients.
It is clear that there are millions of different factors that contribute to disease and there is no question that, in many cases, medical intervention and treatments can play beneficial roles to ease suffering. Often, though, relief is temporary. However, it needs to be made crystal clear that the life giving juice that is trapped within the fibres of nature’s finest foods is what the body craves for optimum well-being. It is illegal to advertise the fact that any foods can help with disease. A conspiracy theorist may say that the pharmaceutical companies and the government have some kind of vested interest in giving the impression that nature’s foods cannot heal or prevent disease, making people think that drugs are the only way. But, this is not true.
Never underestimate the healing power of nature. Once you start to remove the GMO poisons and chemically laden foods out of your diet, your hair will start to shine, your eyes start to sparkle, your skin begins to glow, and your energy heightens. If you need to lose weight it just falls off as all the toxicity is eliminated. If you were to put yourself on a plan of consuming only freshly extracted vegetable and fruit juices, you would lose around 1–2Lbs of weight every 2–3 weeks. This is known as fasting but more about that later.
A fast is where no food at all is consumed. The juices contained within the fibres of the raw fruits and vegetables is a meal in itself due to the high nutritional and mineral content, liquid food that flows through the body and feeds the cells with incredible ease. Freshly extracted juice can be called liquid gold for the body and mind and you can feel the living goodness nourish your body within minutes of consuming, it is important to note that the juices you will make at home is in a completely different league to the bottled, canned and cartoned versions you find in shops that have no enzymes whatsoever.
Remember that humans are a part of nature and nature is always there for you, as mentioned; humans are sick because they have lost the connection with the Mother. Things must be brought back into balance. There is a very interesting and inspiring documentary that you can watch online so you can witness the ultimate power of nature’s juices as a methodology for healing called: Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead by Joe Cross. It can be found on YouTube or his website: www.fatsickandnearlydead.com
‘100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn't end well— with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn't far behind. Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe's personal mission to regain his health.
With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body's ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle.
While talking to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity, it's at a truck stop in Arizona where Joe meets a truck driver who suffers from the same rare condition. Phil Staples is morbidly obese weighing in at 429 lbs; a cheeseburger away from a heart-attack. As Joe is recovering his health, Phil begins his own epic journey to get well.
What emerges is nothing short of amazing – an inspiring tale of healing and human connection. Part road trip, part self-help manifesto, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead defies the traditional documentary format to present an unconventional and uplifting story of two men from different worlds who each realise that the only person who can save them is themselves’.
Raw Energy, Chlorophyll and Digestion
Although fruit and vegetables hold great healing power, you cannot beat the power of raw nutrition in the form of a liquid. As mentioned previously, once you start to apply heat to vegetables the enzyme life content is immediately destroyed.
Upon consuming the machine extracted juice you can be absolutely sure that every single drop of life force reaches parts of the body that the vegetables you eat cannot. This is not to say stop eating slightly cooked/steamed vegetables altogether; the fibre is brilliant for the system. It just means that the raw juices (preferably green) also need to be included to optimise your well-being.
Green vegetables contain a substance called chlorophyll, also known as ‘concentrated sunshine’, this is sunlight energy trapped within the fibres of the plant. This concentrated sunshine is extremely beneficial for your body and is able to improve the functioning of the heart, liver. It cleans the intestines, improves oxygen flow and cardiovascular health, alkalises the body, helps strengthen the immune system and is able to reduce blood pressure. Chlorophyll is vital and will assist you on your path of spiritual growth.
One of the most energy-consuming processes that the human body undertakes is the elimination, assimilation and digestion of foods and it can be especially energy consuming if you are eating the wrong kind of foods, which are dead, have little to no nutritional value and have no living enzyme contents. You may have experienced feeling very tired and just want to go to sleep after eating a large meal that consisted mainly of cooked and processed foods.
The body cannot provide enough systemic energy to keep you awake and digest food at the same time! In order for the body to turn a heap of semi-dead foods into some sort of usable body fuel, it needs to shut down other areas. Usually, eyesight, hearing and consciousness are the first senses to go. The process of dead food digestion, elimination and assimilation can take hours, days, weeks and even months! Leaving behind dehydrated metabolic waste residue that over time covers the cell membrane in mucous and slows down bodily functioning ultimately leading to disease and the need for serious detoxification.
You have over 30 feet of intestinal tract. It was designed to digest and extract enzymes, minerals and nutrition from natural foods rich in hydration. There are many pockets and twists within the intestines and that is where you will find some of the undigested foods that were eaten days, months and even years ago. Consuming denatured foods on a daily basis is very taxing on the body and bits of food are often left undigested in the colon. Many people have clogged their systems so much that they have a build-up of waste matter that has gradually hardened and reduced the 6–7cm wide tunnel to one as narrow as a few millimetres.
This contributes as a major foundation for disease for so many people, a clogged up, backed up system. Just as you would ensure the best fuels go into your car and a regular service is carried out to maintain the internal pipework. The same care and attention needs to be given to your body. Many are suffering with different ailments and diseases for which they then go and run to a doctor for help, only treating the surface problem leaving the underlying issue unattended to.
Minerals and enzymes are the building blocks to life, which nourish the body at a cellular level. If the system and the body’s own ‘juice extractor’ is clogged up with metabolic waste, it can no longer be as effective compared to if it were clean. Backed up pipework within the body makes it 100 times harder for the living components within eaten foods to be absorbed. This is why consuming raw fruit and vegetable juices is so beneficial: you have effectively already done the body’s digestion work and provided the cells with the raw living enzymes that are vital for you to thrive and survive.
A regular flow of juice will start to break down and remove the metabolic, cement-like waste that clogs your digestive system, allowing the life giving substances to be readily absorbed and physical regeneration to take place. A clogged-up body cannot absorb nutrients, which tends to lead to illness. All people are in need of is a good detox. You cannot have a body full of dirt and debris without it affecting your mind: the bacteria within the intestinal tract are closely related to depression and emotional balance.
Life is about having the physical and mental vibrancy to tackle any of life’s challenges with greater ease, waking up in the mornings and actually feeling awake! This can only be achieved through having a clean system that is able to absorb the nutritious building blocks of life that not only feed your body but also enhance your consciousness and awareness.
