First I want to explain that not all food is considered equal. Many foods today would be considered dead food because these foods have been genetically modified, or have been grown in depleted soil and no longer contains the nutrients they once did that our bodies need in order to stay healthy.
Many foods cause acidity in the body that creates a host environment for disease. Or the food really isn’t considered food at all because there is no nutritional value and can even deplete your body of nutrients. This can cause the body to pull nutrients and minerals from less vital tissues in order to supply what it needs in other places. The body continually attempts to maintain a balanced internal environment at all times. When this balance is thrown off, we become sick.
Peak foods are those foods that contain higher amounts of enzymes or have absorbed specific light frequencies from the sun that provide your body the nutrients it needs to thrive. Typically these foods have higher nutritional value and are pH balancing to the body.
One great thing about the Raphaology lifestyle is that you never have to deprive yourself of the food that you enjoy because there is a replacement for practically everything that is not considered “peak.” Most times your meal will taste better too.
You can “peak up” practically any meal by replacing the old dead food with healthy living food. Click on the following link to get a list of regular foods and their peak replacement.
One example on this list of a peak replacement is to eat red onions instead of yellow or white onions. The reason is that red onions have more enzymes than the yellow or white onions which makes them easier for the body to digest.
Another replacement is to eat pressed or rolled barley instead of rolled oats. One of the main reasons for this is that oats are very acidic in the body. Oranges is another acid-forming food. The peak replacement for oranges is tangerines, mandarins or limes.
One more example of a non-peak food is the peanut. The oil in peanuts starts to get rancid immediately after picking, so the better nut to eat is almonds or cashews.
Making simple adjustments to the foods you eat will help you create an environment inside your body that will resist disease and get you started on the road to better health.
