What the adolescent doesn't realize is that this is an important lesson not only for a Bat or Bar Mitzvah ceremony but also for life.
The first lesson paying attention to our breath may teach us is that everything is ultimately impermanent. If we truly internalize the lessons of our breath, both hevel -- impermanence and neshama -- interconnectedness, we can reach a kind of quiet awe.

Just so you know my diet consists of 95% raw foods, consisting of seasonal organic fruits, raw nuts and seeds, a variety of fresh vegetables, fresh green juices, fresh herbs, sprouts, and salads.
A balanced diet, getting regular sleep and sufficient exercise, reducing your daily toxin threshold, cleansing your body regularly, and maintaining a positive state of mind are required to obtain maximum health.
During this cycle, the body naturally tries to purge itself of toxic waste materials and unnecessary salts, proteins, and acids.
During the Energy Cycle, food and nutrients are processed and stored to provide you with energy for your day. If you were not raised on raw organic vegetables or foods, it may be difficult for you to make the transition from cooked, fried, and processed foods. In my book The Green Body Cleanse, I explain precisely how to eliminate and replace toxins from the foods you eat and the beverages you drink. One of the main reasons people have such a hard time losing weight and why we live in an obese society is that people are not eating their meals in a parasympathetic state. Sympathetic state: Your Sympathetic nervous system is what causes the "flight or fight" response which allows your body to adapt to stress or anxiety.
Parasympathetic state: The Parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for relaxation, healing, repairing and recharging your body. To relax your body before meals or during a stressful situation, find a quiet area to sit, close your eyes and take 9 deep breaths starting from deep in your belly all the way up through your upper lungs. Drinking water or other beverages with meals dilutes the digestive juices, which slows down the digestion process. You should eat 5 small meals daily to help regulate your metabolism and keep your body clean. Consuming organic foods is a step in the right direction, but your body depends on the correct balance of food types. When animal proteins and starches are combined and metabolized, the end products are normally acidic.
Breakfast: Eggs, bacon, milk, sausage, or cheese combined with bread (muffins, bagels, waffles, pancakes), potatoes, or tortillas.
Non-Starchy Vegetables (Best Combination with Proteins): Alfalfa Sprouts, Artichokes, Asparagus, Bamboo Shoots, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Eggplant, Green Beans, Leafy Lettuce, Leeks, Mushrooms, Okra, Onions, Peppers, Radishes, Rutabaga, Sauerkraut, Snow Peas, Spinach, Summer Squash, Turnips, Water Chestnuts, Zucchini. The digestion of starches begins in the mouth with an enzyme called ptyalin (pronounced tie-uh-lun).
If two different types of high proteins are eaten together, the amount of digestive secretions for each might stop the action of the other.
Now that you've learned the basics about food mixing and optimal combinations, read on to find a ready-made diet plan that you can start today. ORGANIC GOJI BERRIES: If you're not familiar with the remarkable health benefits of Tibetan Goji Berries, do yourself a favor and try them. ORGANIC AVOCADO: Cut your avocado and sprinkle with fresh ground black or white pepper and squeeze fresh lime juice over it before eating. Choose 2 to 3 alkaline vegetables (no acidic ones) and combine with a salad of fresh spinach, mixed lettuce, and greens (such as arugula, beet greens, or kale). Choose Two or Three Starchy Foods From Below To Accompany Your Salad: Potatoes (red, baked), beans, pumpkin, squash, gluten free bread, gluten free pasta, lentils, quinoa, sweet potatoes, rice (brown or wild), chick peas, beets, or cauliflower. As with lunch, eat a large, fresh vegetable salad (with only alkaline vegetables) before anything else. Although you need to pick one protein source for dinner, I strongly recommend you start slowly eliminating meat from your diet. If you want a little extra seasoning for your meal, Himalayan Crystal Salt is an excellent substitute for regular table salt and can perk up any dish! Coconut Oil: Organic virgin coconut oil is one of the best choices of good fat you can add to your diet. Benefits of consuming coconut oil include: Weight loss, immune system support, cardiovascular health, increased energy, thyroid support, healthy skin, hair and nails, improved cell regeneration, disables fungus, bacteria and viruses, improves insulin secretions and protection against free radicals.
Benefits of consuming Hemp Seed oil include: Cardiovascular support, natural sunblock agent, helps high blood pressure, reduces PMS, lowers high cholesterol, reduces inflammation, calms arthritis, soothes eczema, assists the brain and nervous system, produces healthy cell membranes, healthy skin, nails and hair, and can be used as skin moisturizer without clogging pores.
Benefits of consuming Flaxeed oil include: Helps crohns disease, colitis, soothes intestinal walls, natural laxative, reduces high cholesterol, promotes healthy hair, nails and skin, reduces symptoms of menopause and helps burn body fat. Olive Oil: Olive oil has been used as a medicine and health aid since it was first cultivated around 5000BC. Benefits of consuming olive oil include: Promotes healthy digestion, protects against heart disease, eases symptoms of gastritis and ulcers, lowers gallstone formation and reduces high cholesterol. Common Foods that are Grains, or are made from grains are: Rye, Wheat, Bran, Kamut, Cornflour, Corn, Beer, Cornmeal, Spelt, Oats, chicken, beef and vegetable stock. Avoid the following Gluten Containing Foods: Cereal grains, wheat, rye, spelt, barley, white flour, durum wheat, kamut, wheat germ, wheat bran, graham flour, pasta, bread, couscous, flour tortillas, cakes, crackers, cookies, pastries, chips, imitation fish, hot dogs and fried foods. Always eat fruits before meals and wait 20 minutes for the fruit to move out of the stomach and into the small intestine before eating more food. A quick and easy way to start body cleansing and looking radiant is to do a 3-day Fruit fast. Avoid Drinking Pasteurized Cow Milk: Substitute with natural organic alternatives such as hemp milk, coconut milk, almond milk or raw goat milk. Avoid Artificial Sweeteners: Artificial sweeteners are contained in diet sodas, other diet products, and listed in many ingredient panels.
Avoid Refined Sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup: Carbonated sodas are one of the most common sources of refined sugars in the American diet. Avoid White Flour: White flour is made from stripping the bran from wheat, bleaching it to remove the yellow color, adding synthetic B vitamins, and increasing the amount of gluten the flour can produce. Avoid Soy Products: Soybeans are high in Phytic acid which is damaging to the digestive tract and can block the absorption of nutrients and essential minerals like copper and calcium. Avoid Genetically Modified Foods: Called recombinant DNA technology, this technology changes the core genetic code of organisms.
Avoid Microwaved Foods: Using a microwave destroys and radiates all the nutrients in food and beverages. Avoid MSG (Monosodium Glutamate): A manufactured food additive, MSG is used to enhance the flavor in foods. Avoid The Following Label Ingredients: Natural flavors, soy lecithin, titanium dioxide, autolyzed yeast, bouillon broth, calcium caseinate, hydrolyzed oat flour, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, malt extract, malt flavoring, plant protein extract, stock flavoring, textured protein and yeast extract, all yellow, red or blue dyes, carnauba wax, sodium citrate, anything hydrogenated, dextrin, gelatin, food starch-modified, artificial flavors, colorings and anything you do not know what it is.

Classes includes yoga postures, deep relaxation, breathing techniques, and meditation, focusing on the mind as much as the body. The ability to stop and breathe is one of the most important -- and neglected -- skills we have. I have learned about breathing meditation in the context of my own tradition, but this spiritual practice contains universal lessons.
I say my diet is 95% raw because occasionally (maybe once a month) I will have some steamed or lightly cooked vegetables or anything else I want.
The first step in any diet plan is to understand how the body utilizes and processes the nutrients it needs.
During this cycle you should consume adequate amounts of fresh seasonal fruit (preferably organic or locally grown) to support the body's natural toxin elimination cycle. The best way to support your body during the Energy Cycle is to eat plenty of fresh raw vegetables (such as a salad or juice), with a starch source to provide your body with the energy it needs to maintain its natural biochemical balance.

Understanding and following these principles are critical for first improving and then maintaining your health and vitality. This will help ensure that their purity and nutritional content haven't been compromised by toxins such as pesticides, antibiotics, hormones, refined sugars, MSG, artificial sweeteners, and other toxic compounds. I have reviewed practically every diet book or plan ever written and not one person has ever mentioned how important this is or even linked this to a cause of weight gain. In today's society people are in a constant state of stress due to finances, raising a family, negative news stories, traffic, work pressures and many other things.
When you are in a relaxed state or parasympathetic state, your body is not dealing with stress and is able to break down, digest and absorb the vital components of the meals you eat. Breathe in through your nose slowly until your lungs are fully inflated and then breathe out through your mouth until you push all the air out. If you suffer from food allergies, start performing the deep breathing exercises before meals and you should start noticing better digestion and less allergic reactions within months. This might sound difficult, but when you think about it, it just takes a minute to peel and enjoy a banana or eat a handful of raw seeds or raw nuts. This will allow your stomach to signal your brain, "hey I'm full now," so you avoid taking in excessive calories.
Saliva, which is high in ptyalin, is secreted by the salivary glands and reduces starch to maltose, which in turn is reduced in the intestines to dextrose. Therefore, you might think the addition of more acids, such as citrus fruits, might improve the digestive process. These foods aid in digestion, neutralize acids, and help restore the body's natural alkaline state. This is fast and easy and provides your body with the nutritional value of five full salads!
Organic salad dressing, a mixture of organic olive oil with balsamic vinegar or organic apple cider vinegar are excellent complements. Mix 1-2 tablespoons of organic flaxseed oil, cold-pressed olive oil, hempseed oil, or coconut oil into your salad. Coconut oil contains 90% saturated fat and is made up of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) which are easily digestible and can drastically improve your health. It provides all the essential fatty acids (EFA’s) and essential amino acids, structured in an easily digestible form to maintain human life. Avoid the following foods made from the list above: Biscuits, pizza, bagels, pasta, cakes and bread crumbs.
When drinking fruit juice make sure it is squeezed fresh and not from concentrate in a carton or can.
The most dangerous sugar substitutes approved for consumer use are: saccharin, aspartame, neotame, acesulfame potassium, and sucralose.
Scientists use this genetic manipulation to create any trait they wish, or suppress natural traits they don't want. MSG is injected into lab animals to induce obesity, so you can only imagine what it does to our bodies. Information and statements made are for education purposes and are not intended to replace the advice of your doctor. We often don't take a moment and just breathe into a situation, and too often we panic and forget ourselves. As a former meat eater, I started out cold turkey as a vegetarian in 2000 and my body could not handle the shock and I became sick.
Not only does fruit supply the body with living matter to draw out unwanted substances, it also ensures the intestinal tract remains well hydrated and nourished.
During this cycle, the body assimilates all the foods that you consumed during the day and then processes the nutrients to regenerate itself cell by cell. Although this diet may seem tough at first, I would not be helping you if I failed to tell you what your body wants and needs to function properly. Raw organic fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, grass juices, and sprouted grains provide the most nutrition to the body. After you've done that for a week or so, start replacing one toxic food with a healthy option every week until you have accomplished the goal of creating a healthy diet for yourself. When your body is in a sympathetic state it continuously releases adrenalin into the bloodstream to deal with the stressful situation. The fastest and easiest way to put your body in a parasympathetic relaxation response is through deep breathing.
If this doesn't suit your lifestyle, limit your water intake during a meal to less than 8 ounces. Your gastric juices contain three enzymes that act on proteins, fats, and milk; they are pepsin, lipase, and rennin, respectively.
Suppose milk was eaten with meat, this would initiate a highly acidic reaction and upset the proportions of pepsin and lipase acting on the meat. The following foods should always be consumed fresh, juiced, raw, or lightly steamed and should be locally or organically grown. The foods I've included (if prepared properly) are so loaded with energy and flavor, you won't ever want to return to eating the high-fat, processed foods we've become so accustomed. Many people have reported that after eating seeds for their mid-morning snack for three months, they noticed a 300 to 400 percent increase in their energy levels. Foods containing lipase are the ones with naturally occurring "good fat." New research from UCLA indicates organic avocados are the highest fruit source of lutein (a carotenoid that helps prevent eye disease) among the 20 most frequently eaten fruits. This dressing will provide more flavor as well as the essential fatty acids your body needs. If you absolutely must have meat on occasion, limit it to 1-2 servings per week and make sure it's organic.
MCFA’s are not stored as fat because they are immediately converted to energy once in the body.
Omega-3 refers to three types of fatty acids, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
Olive oil has a large amount of vitamins A, D, and K, as well as vitamin E, which are key sources needed to prevent free radical damage.
These amino acids contain four main proteins: prolamins, globulins, albumins, and glutelins.
For example, if you eat a bagel and then some fruit the fruit will be left in the stomach too long and cause the bagel to spoil thereby creating an acid environment. If you drink the juice hold it in your mouth for 10 seconds before swallowing to allow the enzymes in your mouth to work. Avoid the following label ingredients: Corn syrup, Molasses, white sugar, dextrose, sorbitol, processed fructose and sucrose. Replace white flour with grain free organic alternatives such as almond, buckwheat, or coconut flour. Fermented soy products, such as miso, tempeh, and natto, may be consumed and have been shown to prevent certain cancers and other diseases.
Since the introduction of MSG, diabetes has doubled and the obesity rates have skyrocketed.
The views and nutritional advice expressed by Global Healing Center are not intended to be a substitute for conventional medical service. And as we sit and breathe, we realize that the air I breathe out you breathe in, and vice versa. Then I learned that you must give the body time to adapt to changes in the diet and I slowly replaced cooked foods, meat, dairy, wheat and other gluten containing grains with live raw foods over a period of a couple of years.
All creatures on this planet, including human beings, are naturally attuned to three daily body cycles. Fresh raw fruit provides the ideal ingredients for supporting the body's Elimination Cycle. If the sleep cycle is disrupted by irregular work patterns, night feeding of infants, travel across many time zones, or other factors, the body loses its ability to regenerate cells, which leads to their degeneration instead of regeneration.
Because they are not processed or treated (just gathered and cleaned), they provide the natural enzymes necessary for healthy digestion and cell function.
This process might take you 3 to 6 months or longer, depending on how strict you are in following the plan.

Do not drink milk, tea, juice, sodas, energy drinks, or any other toxic beverage during meals. Chewing your food will help your body absorb vital nutrients more thoroughly and rapidly due to the enzymes secreted in your saliva. I will tell you what I have used, based on the biochemistry of the body, and based on what has worked for me in my practice and my personal life.
Protein digestion requires an acid environment initiated by the secretion of pepsin into the stomach.
The acid in regular vinegar, grapefruit, lemons, or other sour fruits will completely stop the action of ptyalin, resulting in a poorly digested meal. The addition of citrus or other acids stops the secretion of the gastric juices necessary for protein digestion. Although some fruits are classified as acid fruits, once they are broken down in the body they convert the body fluids to an alkaline state. Eating 5 balanced meals at the recommended times each day can help restore the health of your body, and consequently restore and enhance your overall well-being. In addition, researchers found that avocados have nearly twice as much vitamin E as previously reported, making them the highest fruit source of this powerful antioxidant. Meat and dairy should come from range fed animals raised without harmful antibiotics and hormones. This oil is also very good to cook with because it remains stable even under high temperatures.
The most dangerous form to the body are Glutelins which cause gluten intolerance and allergic reactions.
Cold water will also cause the body to expend excess energy to warm the water to body temperature.
This toxic wheat contains a protein called gliadin which is an opiate which stimulate appetite and causes obesity.
Substitute with natural sweeteners such as raw organic locally harvested honey, stevia, or coconut sugar. All is vanity!" (Ecclesiastes 1:2) the Hebrew word is actually hevel, or "vapor." A more precise translation of the concept could be, "Vapor and breath!
It is also the breath we exchange with the trees and plants, and we might imagine that they are breathing us just as much as we are breathing them. When the body is in a sympathetic state the digestive tract stops working and can even treat food as a toxin. Deep breathing causes the bodies muscles to relax, the lungs to expand and the heart rate to drop.
After food is liquefied in the mouth, the tongue will recognize the various flavors of each food and then send messages to the brain, which in turn, orders production of the corresponding digestive juices needed to break down that food. Below, I will cover the most damaging combinations of food, then I will present suggestions for five balanced meals I'm sure you will enjoy. These meals will likely ferment, producing toxic byproducts as well as decreasing the nutritional value. Either the pepsin will not be secreted in the presence of an acid, or the acidic environment will destroy the pepsin. Spinach (and baby spinach) is an excellent source of nutrients, and besides that it tastes great in salads. Coconut oil contains lauric acid (a known immune stimulant), is rich in fiber, and contains essential vitamins and minerals. The human body does not produce the enzyme necessary to break down gluten which means every single person who consumes it will have a negative immune reaction. At that moment, you may forget all of your Hebrew, not to mention the English language, as well as your name.
And all living things share a thin blue line of atmosphere around our planet, making us all interconnected. You should never restrict things from your diet, you should start adding healthier options to your diet. Eastern cultures have used this technique for thousands of years to reduce stress, prevent weight gain and achieve physiological balance within the body. Chewing your food well ultimately leads to more effective digestion and is also one of the best-kept secrets for losing weight. As the stomach becomes more acidic while digesting protein, starch digestion comes to an end.
Any acid (say, vinegar or lemon) on a salad, when eaten with a protein meal, stops the production of hydrochloric acid since the pepsin interferes with protein digestion. For more flavor, you can mix in some hempseed oil, garlic juice, balsamic vinegar, or organic apple cider vinegar.
Some studies have found that the avocado's beta-sitosterol content, combined with its monounsaturated fat content, helps to lower cholesterol levels. Organic raw unrefined extra virgin coconut oil is the best to use and should be solid at room temperature. Hemp seed oil is also great for vegetarians because it provides them with healthy fatty acids without having to consume fish oil. Flaxseed oil requires special packaging because it is easily destroyed by oxygen, heat and light. The intake of gluten creates an autoimmune response whenever wheat or its proteins enter the body. Deep breathing can be done anywhere and anytime before meals to activate and support your digestive process. We may say those conditions which are optimum for protein digestion, exclude starch digestion. An exception to this rule should be noted: Acids can be combined with nuts and seeds because the high fat content of these foods will postpone gastric secretion until the acids have been assimilated into the body.
If they are held up in the stomach by other foods, they will decompose quickly and ferment. Hempseed oil is also rich in vitamin E and is the only plant which provides a source of Vitamin D.
It is best to purchase organic flaxseed oil and keep it refrigerated to preserve freshness. An allergy to gluten may cause breathing difficulty, hives, headaches, fatigue, digestive problems, bloating, gas or even celiac disease. We are not responsible for the content or products of any linked site or any link contained in a linked site.
Sure I think it is the best diet for the human body but that is something you can decide for yourself.
When people eat in a sympathetic state the digestive system is shut down and does not work properly which leads to a poorly digested and assimilated meal. Worse, the introduction of the starch almost neutralizes the stomach acid, thus deactivating the enzymes and creating the climate for putrefaction and fermentation.
Therefore, use raw nuts or seeds (not roasted or salted) with salads to neutralize the acids typically found in salad dressing. Global Healing Center does not adopt any medical claims which may have been made in 3rd party references. My grandfather used to say, "This too shall pass." Following our breath helps us touch this truth viscerally. The ability to breakdown, absorb and process food is completely restricted which may cause weight gain, digestive upset, gas, degenerative conditions, and even bloating. You can eat a variety of fruits throughout the whole morning, but never mix sweet fruits with acid fruits. Where Global Healing Center has control over the posting or other communications of such claims to the public, Global Healing Center will make its best effort to remove such claims.
