Replace Your Dead Food and Eat Peak Instead

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.

Raphaology Help Facilitate Communication Between your Body and Brain

Raphaology could be described as a modality that accesses the communication system of the body, where knowledgeable practitioners of Raphaology help facilitate communication between your body and your brain and suggest herbs, foods and colors based on this dialogue. Our bodies know exactly what we need and are continually trying to communicate with us. Understanding how our bodies communicate with us and figuring out how to give our bodies what it needs will help lead us to better health.

The communication access points are found on the feet. With similarities to reflexology, it is not the same thing. Some of the points are different, and the technique of applying pressure is different as well. Where reflexology mainly uses the thumb to apply pressure to specific points on the foot, in Raphaology, the knuckle is used on the bottom of the feet and the finger pad is used on the top of the feet.

The nerve endings found on the bottom of the feet are connected up to different body parts. If there is pain somewhere on the foot, the organ that is attached to that point is asking for attention. In some cases it could be screaming. (Hopefully that will not be you :) ) The Raphaology practitioner takes note of these points and refers back to them during the last part of the session where they will use your feet once again to help communicate what herbs, foods and colors your body would like to ingest. It may sound strange to include color here, but it is part of the healing process. When you realize that each endocrine gland utilized a specific color frequency from the sun, and that frequency is absorbed into the food used to support the body, it makes more sense how color has a nutritional benefit that is incorporated into this modality.

If this sparks your curiosity, let me know. I would like to share this information with everyone and help to facilitate a dialogue between your body and your brain.

What is Raphaology and Peak Frequency Foods?

According to Dr. Morning Wolf who coined the term, Raphaology is “the science of enabling the earth to progress to her peak frequency as a sun, and the knowledge of bringing peak frequency light to all matter.” I would say that at the base of this modality is the understanding that we are light beings that are housed in a body of flesh and blood, and our goal is to care for our body so that we can lead a long life on the earth and accomplish our purpose in life.

With Raphaology, we feed the glands in us that produce light and omit the unnatural or modified foods that introduce toxins into our body. When we are careful to feed our endocrine system, we support the entire body. Through herbs we can repair the damage that we have already done to ourselves and through foods we boost the function of our organs.

Peak frequency foods are foods that have the most nutrition and enzymes and benefit specific organs in the body. Even some foods that most consider healthy are no longer peak due to their lack of enzymes and nutrients because of our current farming practices and genetic modification. Organic is certainly better, but even in the case of organic foods, some are still not considered a peak frequency food. For a list of foods that are peak and foods to avoid, go to and download the “Peak Food List.”

Another factor to consider regarding peak frequency foods is whether the food causes the body to become acidic or if it is alkalizing. All the foods on the peak frequency list are alkalizing. At the link above, you can download the “Peak Food Conversion Chart” to see a list of foods to avoid and its peak food replacement.

How Does The Food We Eat Affect Our Emotions?

Is it possible that the food we eat can affect our emotional state? From what I have discovered in studying Raphaology and experimenting with the foods I have been eating, the answer is a resounding yes. Just think, people who have depression, or excessive fear or worry, or who feel lonely or feel self pity, they could change how they feel just by eating specific foods that can boost the function of the hormone gland that can cause that emotion.

If you are prone to worry, foods that retain gold light from the sun are the foods you want to eat. This would be food that specifically supports the pituitary gland, which in Raphaology language is the lemon.

For depression, the hormone producing gland that is affected is the pineal gland. Apricots is the food that retains yellow light from the sun and will support the function of the pineal gland. Hopelessness falls into this category, so if you have feelings of hopelessness, try eating more apricots for a period of time and see how you feel.

I have been changing the foods I eat to foods that are more supportive of my endocrine system, and I have noticed a change in how I feel. I seem to be able to take more things in stride, and I am sensing that I have less fear about things–more courage.

With all that I have learned about food and how it affects our emotions, I can’t help but wonder about the diets of people who do criminal acts against others or even harm themselves. I wonder if a better diet could have helped them to not feel the anger or depression that led them to carry out their hurtful actions. I’m sure other factors are involved, but I am convinced that food plays a part in how we feel and possibly how we act out our emotions.

It pays in many ways to pay attention to the food we eat and to take special care of the glands that govern our organs and emotions.
