Humans must eat only those foods which we were designed to eat, if healing and optimum health are the goals. It’s a matter of biology and physiology.We are biologically and physiologically suited to only those foods which:
- are aesthetically appealing to the eyes, taste buds and nose,
- can be eaten in their natural state, with little or no processing,
- are non-toxic,
- can be completely digested by our own digestive enzymes,
- can be easily metabolized,
- supply a broad spectrum of essential, readily-assimilated nutrients,
- generally support the alkaline balance of the body’s fluids,
- do not overburden the body with toxic, acidic metabolic wastes which are difficult to eliminate,
- do not overburden the bowel with clogging bulk which is difficult to eliminate,
- harmonize with our bodily energies,
- easily meet our physical energy requirements,
- promote healing and long-lasting vibrant health.
History has demonstrated that a diet of specific vegan foods, eaten in a specific caloric ratio, will meet all those criteria. For healing inflammatory bowel diseases, other gut disorders and most other illnesses, I have learned which are the most beneficial foods of all. Those food comprise what I call the Vegan Healing Diet ™ (VHD). The word-art image on this site's the home page paints the picture. The science behind the diet is backed up in my book Self Healing Colitis & Crohn’s and by countless studies, case histories and testimonials.
I developed the Vegan Healing Diet™ (VHD) for people with irritable and inflammatory bowel and digestive disorders; however it is applicable and effective for those experiencing most disease conditions. The VHD was devised for optimum gastrointestinal ease, digestibility and nutrition. It is presented in my Self Healing Colitis & Crohn’s and Digestion Perfection with the Vegan Healing Diet Plan guidebooks.
The VHD is a specialized, 100% alkalizing, vegan dietary plan consisting of non-acid fruits, fruit smoothies, freshly-made raw fruit and vegetable juices, and steamed carrots, celery, sweet potatoes, yams and squashes. It advises 75% to 100% raw foods and excludes fatty foods (avocado, nuts and seeds) and whole, raw vegetables/salads during the healing phase. It also incorporates proper food selection, combining, preparation, meal sequencing and eating conditions and practices.
After healing has been accomplished, I recommend my Vegan Post-healing Diet™, which is also presented in Self Healing Colitis & Crohn’s. It is a basic Natural Hygiene diet, including a wider variety of fruits and vegetables, plus properly prepared avocado, seeds and nuts. The recommended caloronutrient ratio is: 80% carbohydrates, 10% protein and 10% fat (per total daily calories). Ninety to 100% alkalizing foods is recommended.
The diet plans must be personalized within the stated guidelines based upon the individual's personal preferences and physiological needs and capabilities.
It is imperative to understand that eating the VHD foods will promote healing and health ONLY if eaten correctly. Haphazard eating of the VHD foods is always detrimental. We must learn HOW to eat the VHD. That is, we need to learn a few simple guidelines:
- Selection – which foods to select during specific phases of healing
- Combining – which foods can be eaten together and which must not be eaten together, as dictated by our digestive enzyme limitations
- Preparation – simple methods of making the foods aesthetically appealing and, if needed, completely digestible
- Eating – consuming food only when truly hungry, poised and present, chewing thoroughly, and stopping when satiated
- Sequencing – the order of eating foods or meals so as to assure optimum digestion and health
The “how to” guidelines are described in detail in Section 5 – “Vegan Healing Diet” of the 4th edition of my Self Healing Colitis & Crohn’s book. My "Vegan Healing Diet Plan" is also presented in my e-book, Digestion Perfection with the Vegan Healing Diet Plan.Tens of thousands of pleased customers and clients have gained life-saving, joyous results via its application. There is no more health-promoting and liberating diet. It’s simple, delicious and promotes the fastest healing, leading on to the Post-healing Vegan Diet ™, which is the most delicious, high-performance and sustaining diet of all.
If you or a loved one is ailing with a gut problem, the VHD is likely to provide the healing miracle answer to your, his or her prayers. It did for me in 1984 when a gastroenterologist recommended a colectomy to remove my thoroughly ulcerated, bleeding colon. I rejected his recommendation, and four weeks after I ceased taking medicines and applied the VHD, I was completely healed. I diligently did the work required to fully rejuvenate and have been celebrating life and sharing this liberating information ever since.
Changing ones beliefs about healthcare and diet takes courage and a passion for the good life, beyond disease and suffering. The amazing thing is, the VHD is delicious and more invigorating than any diet we have ever dreamt of. My books reveal the untold truth about how we were meant to eat and how we can heal naturally under our own God-given powers and thrive in this modern world on the most luscious and nutritious of all dietary fare -- our natural biological diet.
I invite you to give Self Healing Colitis & Crohn’s and/or Digestion Perfection with the Vegan Healing Diet Plan a read and contact me to discuss your or a loved one’s needs. The body is self-healing, and it will do the job when its natural biological needs are met. Healing and vibrant health are at our fingertips. After reading one of the booksI am sure you’ll be inspired to take a new higher course on your path to health freedom.
