Food Combining – fad or how we were meant to eat?

First things first. Ayurveda is one of the world’s original medicine forms, dating back many thousands of years. Food combining is a relatively ‘new’ term (coined circa 1920s) by Dr Hay, then later on it was termed nutripathy by Dr Martin in the 1970s – today it is known more for the pH aspect via modern day luminaries such as Dr Robert Young and both Cayce and Jarvis.

So no, it is not a fad. And you only have to try it for a short while for your body to be able to tell you that yes, it is the way our bodies prefer we eat.

There is more on the pH aspect here with more on the stomach’s plea here.

Basically it is founded upon the most optimal eating process for our digestion, assimilation and health – removing inflammation and in turn, disease.

Some people base their dietary choices on still including meat and dairy or the original Ayurvedic advice if you prefer easy to follow tried and tested methods.

So how to make it simple? I find the easiest way is to have a simple chart printed up on your fridge, which you can use for your shopping list also. While preparation methods, habits and recipes will have to be adjusted, once you ‘get it’ this way of eating is really easy.

The following chart is a relatively easy to follow cheat sheet for ‘how to’ –

And for the definitive list, I find the easier the better. If your preferred foods are not there, please ask if they are foods at all (ie processed) or if they are just compare them to the different plant foods and what is closest (ie different nuts or for example, various brassicas or similar plants).

Sharing the truth in health care with the public - especially those in nations where it is illegal to know the truth, for those who cannot afford health care, and for those who, through chronic illness or terminal disease are desperate to know the truth. And I will use any means necessary to do so. This has cost me dearly over the years - legally, professionally, financially and personally - but each time I feel as though it's not work it, I find I HAVE to keep going. After the recent loss of our adored son in law through medical negligence, I vowed to never give up the fight that I began in orthodox medicine, then as a naturopath seeing proof that there are answers outside of medicine, outside of surgery, toxic chemicals and big pharma's control - and when my daughter almost died through medical error. It's easy for some sectors of the community to dismiss someone who walked away from orthodox medicine. It's also easy for them to dismiss anyone who has qualifications in alternative medicine, regardless of how many lives they have saved - and regardless of whether most of those lives were failed by orthodoxy. Yet spend years in between, working in medical/pharma research and really get the inside story and then watch the worms come out of the woodwork. It's an interesting conundrum to see just how people who on the surface appear to be intellectual and reasonable, all of a sudden shoot off the Richter scale of common sense - after all, there is no way on earth someone who has a sound knowledge of facts, could possibly, actually know something they don't. Regardless of how my peers see me, I will spend the rest of my life getting the truth out there. It's astounding how much free time some of these poor excuses of humanity have, and how they believe they are discovering some amazing new thing with their hard hitting 'journalism' - imagine if all that effort could actually go into something decent and worthwhile.
