What was in the classical period of Rome called "Law of Similarities" is now called "Teleological Nutritional Targeting". You may have heard it referenced as "Whole food signatures", "Organ twins", "Nature's superfoods", "God's Pharmacy", etc...
But the theory is the same: every whole food has a pattern that resembles a body organ or physiological function and this pattern acts as a signal or sign as to the benefit the food provides the eater!
I have been teaching this theory for a while, but when I received the same email from THREE different people in just a week, I knew I had to forward it to you too. I don't know where it originated, hence can't quote a name, but can vouch for the information being pretty spot on.
A sliced Carrot looks like a human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like a sliced carrot! and Yes science shows that carrots greatly enhance blood flow and function of the eye. "Eat carrots to see in the dark", remember that?
Tomatoes and Capsicum have four chambers and are red. The heart is red and has four chambers. All of the research shows tomatoes and bell peppers are indeed pure and important blood food.
Grapes hang in a cluster in a shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell. Check for yourself, but most of us know that grapes are also profoundly vitalizing heart and blood food.
A walnut looks like a little brain- a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds are on the nut just like the neo-cortex. We now know that walnuts help develop over 3 dozen neuro transmitters for brain function.
Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain function and yes they look exactly like the human kidneys.
Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are about the same. Is you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
Egg plant, Avocados and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female- they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats 1 avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this?- it takes exactly 9 months to grow an Avocado from blossom to ripened fruit!
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of sperm as well to overcome male sterility.
Sweet potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics
Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries.
Grapefruits, Oranges and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts
Onions look like body cells. Today's research shows that onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which was the epithelial layers of the eyes.
Bananas, Cucumbers, Zucchini and more target the size and strength of the male sexual organ.
Peanuts have a profound effect on the testicles and sexual libido. Peanuts were banned as a food for males by the church during the middle ages. Most people don't realise that arginine, the main component of Viagra comes from peanuts
NATURE'S SIGNATURES IN A SALAD
As for this week's recipe, I thought it only appropriate to use some of my favourite ingredients (from above) and create a mega delicious salad...For the Kale
2 Large handfuls Kale... okay 3!
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Lemon juice
1/4 tsp Celtic Sea SaltFor the rest
1 Large Carrot
1 Large Kumara/ Sweet potato
1 Ripe Avocado
-While getting all prepared, have sundried tomatoes soaking in warm water
-In a large bowl mix the Oil, lemon juice and salt
-Destalk and chop Kale, then add to the large bowl
-Use your hands to really massage the juices into the Kale. The salt will also help break down the cell walls of this tough green and make it really nice and soft
-Grate the carrot and raw sweet potato. I used a Vegetable Spiralizer
, makes the salad so much more exciting!
-Slice, chop, cut the rest and toss
